A 'snack'. Not an absolute to use a scale on this recipe.  Note when cooking out the water at the end, it will ll nothing is happening for a long time. But the crystallization will occur quickly once the solution looks like a thick syrup (watch the heat too!).

Candied Ginger

Category : Dessert

Prep Time : 0H15M

Cook Time : 1H0M

Yield : about 1 pound

Ingredients

Nonstick spray

1 pound fresh ginger root (get young ginger if possible)

5 cups water

Approximately 1 pound granulated sugar

Directions

Spray a cooling rack with nonstick spray and set it in a half sheet pan lined with parchment.

Peel the ginger root and slice into 1/8-inch thick slices using a mandoline. Place into a 4-quart saucepan with the water and set over medium-high heat. Cover and cook for 35 minutes or until the ginger is tender.

Transfer the ginger to a colander to drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Weigh the ginger and measure out an equal amount of sugar. Return the ginger and 1/4 cup water to the pan and add the sugar. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar syrup looks dry, has almost evaporated and begins to recrystallize, approximately 30-40 minutes. Transfer the ginger immediately to the cooling rack and spread to separate the individual pieces. Once completely cool, store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Save the sugar that drops beneath the cooling rack and use to top ginger snaps, sprinkled over ice cream or to sweeten coffee.

Granny Sue's Corn Bread from East TN:

We were given this recipe by an elderly lady who has long since passed away.  In honor of "Granny Sue" I give you the following.

Heat an oiled iron skillet in a 450 degree oven.

3/4 cup white corn meal

2 1/2 t. yeast

2 t. honey

1/2 t. salt

3/4 t. baking powder

1/4 t. baking soda

1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1 egg

1c. buttermilk (may substitute milk with a little lemon juice)

1/4 c. oil

Mix all together.  Pour into preheated skillet.  Bake until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

Some like to eat this with molasses.  Add a nice place of pinto beans and you've got a good southern meal!  Don't forget the chow-chow for the beans!  :)  Enjoy!

Kefir:  This morning I wanted some Kefir but didn't have any.  I did have plain yogurt, milk and some frozen bananas.  So, I put some frozen banana in the bottom of my blender, added about a cup of yogurt, a little honey to taste, a t. vanilla extract, and enough milk to cover all of that.  I blended it and it tasted just like Kefir to me!  Since I used the plain yogurt, it had all the great nutrition of Kefir and it tasted great!

Chicken and Taragon Omelette:  Do you think you handle the idea of some chicken in your breakfast?  Brother Corbett liked this.  Boil 1 chicken breast.  Cut into bite sized pieces.  Heat a skillet with 2 t. of olive oil in bottom of skillet.  In a medium sized bowl beat together 4 eggs, 1 t. salt,  1/4 cup of plain yogurt, and 1 T. chopped taragon (in the spice rack.)  Add chicken.  Pour into skillet.  Cook until firm, then flip,  Fold over or cut into wedges and serve.

Banana Yogurt Smoothie:  Freeze over ripe bananas.  place 1/3 blender full in blender, add 2 cups plain yogurt, sweetener to taste (I use about 1/4 c honey), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and milk to cover all and enough to make it blend easily.  Should be thick and delicious!  :)

Cheesy Beef Enchilada Pasta:  Preheat oven to 350.  Bring large pot of water to boil.  Add four cups of whole grain pasta and cook for seven minutes.  Drain and set aside. Heat 1 T olive oil in bottom of large skillet.  Add one chopped onion and cook for 2 minutes.  Add 3 minced garlic cloves and 1 chopped yellow pepper, one chopped red pepper and one chopped orange pepper.  Cook another 4 minutes.  Add 1 pound ground beef and 1 t salt and cook for 8 minutes.  Drain the fat.  Oil a baking dish with olive oil.  Mix the pasta with 2 (14.5 oz.) cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies, 4 cups of Mexican blend cheese, 1/2 cup fresh cilantro and the beef mixture.  Pour into the oiled baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.  Delicious enough for company!

Beef Stroganoff with Rice:  Serves 6 with plenty of rice left for another dish.  Allow a half hour to prepare and serve. Cook a bag of brown rice.   Heat 2 T olive oil in a frying pan over high heat; add beef strips until browned.  Add 1 glove crushed garlic, 1 medium onion chopped, and mushrooms to taste.  Cook 2 minutes.  Blend 1 t. cornflour or corn starch or wheat flour with 1 T milk, 1 T tomato paste, and a little beef stock (liquid left after you cook a roast or something.)  Add 1 container of sour cream.  Serve over cooked brown rice.  Do not mix the rice and stroganoff.  When you put the rice on your plate, then put the stroganoff over the rice.  If you mix them beforehand, it is not nearly as good.  Keep them separate when off of your plate.  :)

Stepping out and letting others know you have something you need to work on and that you ARE working on it is to make yourself vulnerable.  We already feel some vulnerability to the judgments of others.  I mean, there is a good section of the population we are continually rubbing shoulders with who feel it is their role in life to point out flaws in others and often to their faces.  :P  If your weight doesn't meet their ideal, they let you know.  If you have a breakout on your face, they let you know.  And they're NOT YOUR MOTHER!  :P

Awesome!  I can't wait to try this guacamole!

Ron said:

Guacomole! When I'm behaving this is my goto dip or condiment (great on dogs, burgers etc...). Key is using the properly ripened avocado. You want the avocado to be not quite firm. (If it's firm it's almost inedible, if it's too ripe it will be too squishy) When you mash them (don't use a food processor or blender, a potatoes masher or similar, even a large fork is best) don't overmash, leave some soft chunks for texture. 

When seeding the tomatoes make sure to discard the juicy parts. You want the firm flesh (again this is to keep the texture more of a thick dip, don't want runny).

Lime must be fresh, and add a little zest of the lime too (careful not to get much of the pith(white part).

If you don't like cilantro try fresh parsley.

The above are my extra comments below is the recipe from Alton Brown and original URL. I got this originally off his TV show, back when the Food Network had cooking shows :/

Ingredients

3 Hass avocadoes, halved, seeded and peeled (or 4 small ones)

1 lime, juice of

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1/2 medium onion, diced

2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

1 Wash and prepare produce.

2 Put avocado innards and lime juice into a large bowl, toss to coat.

3 Add salt, cumin, and cayenne, and mash with a potato masher or whatever you can find to mash it with.

4 Fold in onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic.

5 Let sit at room temp temperature for an hour, then serve.

Egg Nog Smoothie and Whipped Cream:  Place in blender 1 egg per person, 1 cup milk or cream per person, about a teaspoon of cinnamon, grate in fresh nutmeg (if you ever begin grating your own fresh nutmeg you will never go back to prepackaged ground nutmeg), and your choice of sweetener to taste.  We had this today and I had planned to add a teaspoon of vanilla but I forgot.  It was great anyway!  Add enough ice to give it a smoothie consistency.  Blend.  Serve in an attractive goblet and garnish with a little more fresh ground nutmeg.  Beautiful, healthy and delicious!

Option:  you could make some whipped cream for the top and then grate fresh nutmeg over that.  Beautiful!  

To make your own healthy whipped cream, buy heavy whipping cream, place in bowl with sweetener of your choice to taste.  Mix with mixer until it keeps its shape, NO LONGER OR IT WILL TURN TO BUTTER!  :)

Fried Plantain:  We love to leave the plantain on the counter until it begins to get little brown spots on it, then oil and heat a griddle, cut the plantain in half and then slice lengthwise and fry.  If you fry them green add salt.  If you allow it to get very ripe it will be deliciously sweet--our favorite way!  Yum!

Today we had fried rice.  My Korean friend Tonghui taught me to make it.  In our Sides section I told you how she taught me to cook rice to be used in various dishes.  Here we will use some of that rice.  

Heat a little olive oil in the bottom of your skillet on medium (too much oil and you have greasy rice. Too little and your food burns.)  Cut up one medium sized onion and place in skillet.  Crush one clove of garlic and add to onion.  Stir as needed.  Add whatever veggies you have on hand.  Today I cut up carrots and put in.  Add some left over meat cut in bite sized pieces.  Add one portion of rice per person.  Keep stirring as needed.  Today I got a frozen bag of stir fry veggies out of the freezer and picked through it to add mushrooms, water chestnuts, red bell pepper strips, and broccoli to our stir fry.  Add soy sauce to taste.  Cook until veggies are cooked but still a bit crunchy.  

Enjoy!  YUM!

View Completed Goal!

Cooking With Rice.  

I love to prepare foods that include rice!  In my desire for good health I choose the brown, unrefined rice.  It takes just a bit longer to cook than white, but is definitely worth it! My Korean friend Tonghui taught me to cook rice, so you will find my rice to be the "sticky rice" of the oriental dishes, as opposed to the dry rice of the Caribbean.  Both are delicious!  

I like to cook a bag of rice--the size my family can use in a week.  I then use portions of the cooked rice in various dishes throughout that week.  You could also freeze some of it.  

First pour the uncooked rice in a large pot and rinse the rice until the water runs clear.  Cover the rice with water a couple of inches above the level of the rice. Sprinkle in some salt.  Put a lid on the pot.  Turn on high until it comes to a boil, (Stay in the kitchen!) and then turn the heat WAY down to warm.  Allow to sit for twenty minutes. Taste to see if the water is gone and the rice is soft enough for your taste.  Use portions of this rice in stir fries, soups, and other yummy dishes throughout the week.  Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!

One limitation on the island is shopping for clothing.  Several of my skirts are wearing out--a rip here, holes, there, faded from the sun, etc.  I need a few skirts but I don't have a pattern.  Here's what I did:  I measured my waist and added 3" for seams.  I divided that number in two, giving the back 1" more than the front.  

Next I measured the largest section of my hips around.  Once again I added 3" for seams.  Again I divided my number in two and gave the back 1" more than the front.  

Then I measured the distance from my waist to my hips.  

Next I measured from the waist to the floor (I wanted a maxi skirt.)  I added 2" for hems.  

While I wanted the skirt to fit my waist and hips, I wanted to be able to walk easily, so I made my skirt A-line (The hemline larger than the waist and hips.)  

I lay my fabric on the floor and measured all of the distances for the two pieces--the front and the back piece.  I didn't have a tape measure so I used a ruler and a mop handle to draw my lines with a marker onto the fabric.  

I cut out the two pieces.  

I folded the back piece in half lengthwise and cut it in half on the fold.  I now have three pieces.  

The first thing I did was sew an 8" zipper in between the two back sections.  This will not win any prizes at the county fair, but it works!  :)  

I then sewed the two back pieces together, and then the back to the front.  I then sewed down the waist, and then sewed a hem.  

Done!

Here's my skirt.  Like I said, it won't win any prizes at the county fair, but it works!  It's just what I needed!

Original recipe makes 20 servingsChange Servings
  • 1/4 cup mashed potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 (16 ounce) packageconfectioners' sugar

  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar for dusting, or as needed

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, or as needed

Directions

  1. Combine mashed potatoes, milk, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Stir confectioners' sugar into potato mixture until a dough consistency is reached. Refrigerate dough until chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar on a cutting board or waxed paper.
  4. Roll dough into a large rectangular shape on prepared surface.
  5. Spread enough peanut butter on top layer of dough to cover.
  6. Roll dough into a jelly roll shape; refrigerate roll for 1 hour. Slice dough into pinwheels to serve.
  7. I like to use cinnamon for the last little bit of the powdered sugar.  Delicious!  (Oh, this idea came as a result of prayer when I was making this family favorite for my husband, and I ran out of confectioner's sugar.  I prayed and asked the Lord what I could use and cinnamon came to mind.  This is now my very favorite way to have potato candy.  Yes, I tasted it even though I have "given up" sugar.  :)
