General Recipe Sharing and Discussion Thread

I know that a lot of my fellow Dataloungers are doing more cooking and baking these days, so let's share some of our successes and failures.

Some things I've made lately: Cook's Country's Slow Cooker Sausage Ragu (delicious and easy.)

Pioneer Woman's Brown Butter Crispies (OK, but kind of dry.)

Chocolate Malt Ice Cream with Malt Ball Crunch (VERY good.)

I'm making Emeril's Chicken Gumbo this weekend. I just finished the "Rich Chicken Broth"; will make the gumbo tomorrow.

Things I'm considering making in the future:

Lahm Bi Ajeen (from the current issue of Food Network magazine)

Swiss Steak

Alfajores (Argentine sandwich cookies)

Spaghetti w/Pancetta & Ricotta

Sourdough Bread


Deep-Fried Turkey

Please share your experiences!

Well, I thought this tread would get more action, but I guess there aren't that many cooks on here. Here's an update from me (OP). I made the King Arthur Flour Date-Nut Bread today (as mentioned in r5.) It came out pretty good. I think I underbaked it a bit, and I think the recipe has too many walnuts, but otherwise it's a nice loaf.

I made the Emeril Chicken Gumbo and while it was quite tasty, it's VERY oily. I guess if you use a full cup of oil to make the roux it's unavoidable.

It's finally gotten cooler here (SoCal) so I'm up for some more baking. Not sure what's next. I saw a good pecan pie recipe in this month's AllRecipes magazine--no corn syrup, just maple syrup. That issue also has a Colorado green chili recipe for the Instant Pot.

I might try a bread this weekend. And once the date-nut bread is done, I like the looks of Molly Yeh's pumpkin cranberry loaf.

r33 Thanks for sharing. I am on Day 3 of my starter -- after the first day it didn't seem to have changed very much, but today it's gotten HUGE, so I guess it's working. Can you let us know how you did your starter? I'm following a recipe from Food Network magazine, and now that I've seen some others, I wish I hadn't. The one I'm using requires you to remove all but 1/4 c. of the starter every time you feed it. It's kind of a hassle; the other recipes I've seen use weight rather than volume, which I think would be easier to deal with.

What have you been doing with the portion of the starter that you remove every day?

FYI, I started with 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour and 1/3 c. water, then the feeding is 1/2 c. unbleached AP flour and 1/4 c. of water.

Not really much of a recipe per se, but one of our local grocers had bone in skin on turkey breasts for super cheap, it was only about $5 for a 2 1/2 pound breast. I also picked up a packet of McCormick Bag 'n Season for chicken, but just for the oven bag - I don't like the seasoning blend. I know Reynolds sells oven bags, but they're usually too big and meant for full size turkey's.

Just simply seasoned it with sea salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and parsley. It only took an hour and 15 min at 350 since it was already thawed. Super moist, and it got a little browning on top as well (as long as you follow the instructions to make a few slits in the bag).

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get one of these fresh turkey breasts just before Thanksgiving. I really don't feel like buying a whole frozen turkey, thawing it out for several days, cleaning it, etc....

A grumble: I made the Marcella Hazan bolognese sauce I read about here at DL and followed it EXACTLY. To the letter, didn’t alter it one bit. Bought a fresh new jar of whole nutmeg for it. It was a huge disappointment. It was edible but completely joyless. Some priss is going to scold me and say I didn’t let it cook down long enough or I did something wrong, but no. I’ve rarely followed a recipe as faithfully as I did this one.

I make little silver-dollar pancakes with this: 1/2 c rolled oats (not quick; old-fashioned), 1/2 c cottage cheese, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp sugar, glug of vanilla extract or some lemon zest (or maybe both). I blend with an immersion blender and drop on a hot buttered frying pan. Lots of butter.

It’s a delicious little hot breakfast. Good way to stay full with protein.

R33 here. My sourdough bread came out perfectly! I was so thrilled, because I wasn't sure I was doing it right each step of the way. But it was great: very crusty, tangy, chewy; perfect.

R36, I used the Feasting at Home starter recipe (using whole wheat flour to start, then switching to all purpose unbleached flour the next few days, then switching to unbleached bread flour the last few days). I discarded half the starter before feeding each day, saving a few batches in the fridge to make sourdough pancakes, waffles, and pizza dough in the near future. You'll get to the point where you just throw out the discard because you'll have at least 7 days worth. You can also give it away to friends who want to make their own starter (feeding the discard batch first before giving it away).

Try Bianco tomatoes, guys. Best canned tomatoes I've tried so far. Yes, I've tried canned San Marzanos, forgot which brands. IMO, Bianco is the best. Price is similar to Muir Glen brand.

I know Rao's sauce gets a lot of love. It was recently ranked as the top jarred sauce on America's Test Kitchen, with Victoria in 2nd place. I've since tried both, and honestly I think I prefer Victoria between the two. It's a really good base tomato sauce when you don't have all the fresh ingredients on hand to make a marinara from scratch (fresh onions, fresh garlic, fresh herbs, etc...).

It sells for about $6.99 per jar where I live. But with all costs considered vs. buying San Marzano tomatoes and all the other additional ingredients to make a sauce from scratch, it's not a bad deal at all imo. Especially if you're trying to avoid venturing out of the house right now.

I made beef stroganoff tonight. I cheated by using a jar of stroganoff starter (basically a simmer sauce.) The recipe on the jar said to use ground beef, but I used the more traditional steak (I used eye of round.) I floured and browned the beef first, then sautéed some onions and mushrooms. There didn't seem to be enough sauce in the jar for all the meat and vegetables, so I added about a cup of water then let in simmer for about half an hour to reduce down a little and tenderize the beef. Added sour cream at the end. It was actually decent, surprisingly.

My go to order at Chipotle is their burrito bowl with cilantro lime white rice, chicken, corn salsa, and shredded Monterey jack cheese. But it's also relatively easy to make at home too.

Chicken - just boneless skinless chicken thighs marinated in a can of Chipotle in Adobo sauce for about an hour or so. Then I grill it and dice it up.

Cliantro Lime Rice - self explanatory. Just rice with fresh cilantro, lime juice, sea salt.

Corn salsa - Fresh corn, diced poblano peppers, diced red onion, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and sea salt.

Do they simply use superior wheat? And if so, in what way is that wheat superior? To me flour is flour, ground up wheat. How doe some flour get to be better than the other if confounding variables like freshness are left out? Or is it a confounding variable that explains KA's superiority?

From America’s Test Kitchen, r78;

“This flour is milled to a specific protein percentage of 11.7 percent, which was among the highest protein levels of the brands we tried and close to the bottom of the range usually found in bread flours. As a result, the bread we made with this flour rose tall and had an “airy,” “chewy” crumb and “crispy” crust. The biscuits were also tall, albeit a bit “bready.” Tasters noticed a “nice wheat flavor” in both the bread and the biscuits. However, texture and flavor differences were less discernible in the cake; while its texture was “a tad stiffer” than those of the cakes we made with other brands, it was still “pleasantly moist” and “plenty tender.” While we recommend this flour for bread baking, it’s also a good option for multipurpose baking.”

They recommend Gold Medal or Pillsbury for non-bread use.

r78 You made me blush. All over.

The King Arthur Flour Co. has been in business over 225 years, so they must be doing something right. I like their flour because it unbleached, and not having to deal with chemical "whiteners"( some of which are potential carcinogens) is a good deal. KA ages their flour which naturally lightens the color, but it takes time, that's one of the reasons it's more expensive than the standard supermarket flours.
