I love to cook, and I love to find new recipes for tasty things. So why not have a thread on Jul for all recipes, both original and ones you've discovered elsewhere. Share your favorite recipes here!

I'll start with one I've made quite a bit recently: meatballs! This one is actually based off of an Ina Garten recipe, altered a bit to my own tastes. Check it out:

--------------------------------

ROBBIE'S FAVORITE MEATBALLS

1 lb ground beef (85% lean)
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 ground veal
1 3/4 cups Italian breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Pecorino & Romano cheese (plus extra for serving)
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons oregano
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup dry red wine (I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon or Chianti)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 jars marinara sauce (I like Rao's best, but any will do)
Salt and pepper to taste

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.

2) Place beef, pork, and veal in a large mixing bowl and lightly break up the meats with your fingertips and a fork.

3) Add the eggs, garlic, oregano, pecorino & romano cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.

4) Add the wine and 3/4 cup water and mix gently but thoroughly.

5) Scoop out the mixture into balls (about 2 oz each) and place them on the pans. Brush the meatballs with the olive oil.

6) Bake the meatballs for 25 to 30 minutes until lightly browned. Pour the marinara into a large pot and bring to a simmer.

7) Carefully add the meatballs and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve with the rest of the grated pecorino romano cheese to taste or your favorite pasta.

Makes approximately 26-30 meatballs.

found this on a graham cracker box.
made them on the fourth, and ending up eating all but one

ingredients:
graham crackers
apples
sharp cheddar
prep (i forgot the order of some things, but idk if it matters a whole lot):
1. slice apples, break graham crackers in half, slice sharp cheddar
2. put apple slices on graham cracker halves, put cheese on top
3. melt cheese in microwave

That's basically the idea
really simple

despite saving it, I cannot find the section of box that had the recipe on it, so going from memory.

It actually doesn't taste that bad

This one is my go-to party dip, and is the stuff of legend. Make it at your next big gathering, and enjoy your new friends.

-----------------------------

BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP

2 10oz cans Hormel chicken breast, drained
8oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
1/2 cup chunky blue cheese dressing
1/2 blue cheese crumbles
1 loaf french bread, sliced
2 large cucumbers, sliced thick

1) Preheat the oven to 350.

2) Spread the softened cream cheese evenly along the bottom of a shallow 1-quart baking dish.

3) Drain the chicken, and spread it evenly over the cream cheese.

4) Add the hot sauce, blue cheese, and dressing to the mixture. Mix all ingredients well with a large spoon until evenly mixed. Mixture should be a light pink color.

5) Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the dip is hot and bubbly. Serve with french bread and thick sliced cucumbers.

Unless there's any issue with this, let's talk sandwiches

Just made + ate this:
bread
mayo
lunch meat
sharp cheddar
horseradish mustard

Now, I shouldn't have to explain how to build a sandwich, so...

Assuming the "lunch meat" in question is turkey breast, that combination sounds like my jam.

Speaking of sandwiches, how about a recipe for sliders?

--------------------------------------

OVEN-BAKED CHEESEBURGER SLIDERS

2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean or above)
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 slider buns (Kings Hawaiian work great)
6 slices cheddar or American cheese
Dill pickle chips (optional)
Ketchup (optional)

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onion, and salt.

2) Gently press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch pan so that it makes one large patty of even thickness. Use the tines of a fork to poke holes throughout the meat. Bake for 30 minutes. As it bakes, the meat will shrink away from the sides and liquid will accumulate around the edges of pan.

3) When fully cooked, remove the pan from oven (keep oven turned on) and carefully drain off the liquid.

4) Top the meat with an even layer of sliced cheese; return pan to oven for about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.

5) Cut into 2-inch squares (or the size of the buns used), making 12 mini- hamburgers. Serve with dill pickle slices and ketchup to taste.

Okay these are super dumb because I wasn't sober when I made these.

Canadian pancakes:
Spread peanut butter on a piece of bread, pour syrup on the other, make sandwich

Homemade cheesy bread:
Shove three or four thick slices of cheese between two slices of bread, shove in microwave for like a minute. ENJOY.

Made this one earlier today. Pretty tasty, and economical too:

----------------------------

LEMON HERB CHICKEN

Chicken thighs and legs, skin on (enough to fill out your dish of choice)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2-3 lemons
3-4 cloves minced garlic
Oregano
Sea Salt
Black Pepper

1) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Trim chicken if desired.

2) In a large glass baking dish, arrange the chicken. Cover the chicken in the olive oil and leave a little excess at the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic.

3) Cut the lemons into quarters, then squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken. The juice will drip to the bottom of the dish, making a sort of marinade.

4) Thoroughly and gently coat the chicken in the resulting marinade, and replace them in the dish, skin side up. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt, pepper, and oregano.

5) Place in the oven, and let cook for 1 hour or until chicken is fully cooked and skin is brown and crisp on top. Serve with rice or your favorite vegetable.

Necrobumping to pass this recipe along. I suggested it to Tarale already for ease of prep, but it's worth repeating here for sheer tastiness alone...

-------------------------

SPICY-SWEET SALMON WITH PINEAPPLE

4 skinless salmon filets (about 4oz each)
Pineapple rings
1/4 maple syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Canola oil
Salt & pepper

1) Saute the pineapple rings in canola oil until golden brown on both sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

2) Sprinkle the salmon filets with the salt and pepper, then brush the filets with the mix of maple syrup & cayenne pepper.

3) Cook the salmon filets in the pan on high heat until light brown and flakes easily with a fork (about 3 to 4 minutes per side).

4) Serve immediately with the pineapple. Can also be served with your favorite Asian salad.

Sounds good. I really need to figure out where to get decent seafood in my area. Perhaps I'll make a special trip into town for it some day.

CHEESY SIN BREAD

* an amount of softened butter
* a slightly less than equal amount of Parmesan or pecorino cheese
* some smoked paprika won't go astray
* neither will a little black pepper
* thick bread, like a sourdough is good

Mix together the butter, cheese, and paprika, and spread it on one side of the bread.

Fry the bread, butter-cheese mix side down, till it's golden and crispy

Bonus points: make a grilled cheese sandwich with it.
Bonus bonus points: use a smoked cheddar and a dry-cured bacon for a filling

Note: I have a thing for smoky things

CARROT MUFFINS

* 150g (5 1/2 oz) self-raising flour
* 60g (2 oz) butter, preferably unsalted, plus extra for greasing
* 2 large eggs, beaten
* 2 medium carrots, grated
* 3–4 tablespoons milk
* zest of 2 oranges, juice of 1 (optional)

Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5, and grease a muffin tray
Sift the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
Melt the butter. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs and grated carrot, then add the melted butter and mix well. Pour the carrot mixture into the flour and fold together lightly.
Add enough milk to give a soft consistency, then spoon the mixture into the muffin tray.
Bake for 10–15 minutes (depending on size), until golden brown and springy, then remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before turning out.

In the mood for tacos but want something a little different? Give these a try. This one is far better than it may sound, and is arguably even better as leftovers the next day. Besides, I don't get the chance to cook with chorizo very often, anyway.

---------------------

CHORIZO AND SWEET POTATO ENCHILADAS

1 lb ground chorizo (or 1 pkg chorizo sausage, removed from casing)
1 sweet potato (about 1 lb)
1 poblano pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
8 flour tortillas (7-inch)
15 oz enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
3 sliced green onions
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Sour cream (optional)

1) Peel the sweet potato and cut it into small 1/4 inch cubes. Remove the stem and seeds from the poblano pepper and also dice into 1/4 inch pieces.

2) In a large skillet, sauté the sweet potato, poblano, and garlic in vegetable oil over medium-high heat until they begin to soften (about 5-7 minutes).

3) Add the ground chorizo. If you're using chorizo sausages, squeeze the chorizo out of it’s casing into the skillet. Continue to sauté over medium heat, breaking up the chorizo into pieces as you stir, until the chorizo is cooked through (5-7 minutes more).

4) Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 375ºF. Scoop about 1/2 cup of the chorizo sweet potato filling into each tortilla, then roll into a burrito shape.

5) Place the filled and rolled tortillas in the baking dish, seam side down. They should fill the dish and fit tightly against each other to prevent unrolling.

6) Pour the enchilada sauce over the the rolled tortillas and top with shredded cheese. Bake in the oven until the edges begin to bubble (about 20-25 minutes). Top with sliced green onions after baking. Serve hot with sour cream to taste.

Lately I am loving the slow cooker in our house, for convenience with the baby. What tends to happen (even now, when he's 10 months old) is we get him down for sleep, and then we start cooking. Then, when the meal is finally ready, he wakes up and one of us has to go settle him and let our meal get cold.

But with the slow cooker? No! All our problems are solved! (Note: OK so now there are new problems about having to be organised ahead of time so you can cook things for 8 hours) The food is hot and delicious ready for dinner, and all you need to do is cook pasta or rice or mashed potato or sometimes nothing at all, and serve it up! Wonderful!

With that in mind, here is tonight's:

Beef & Rosemary Casserole
(Supposed to be veal… but we can't get veal)

* 1.2 kg (2 1/2 pounds) boneless veal shoulder or stewing veal, chopped coarsely
* 1/4 cup (35 grams) plain flour
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 medium onion, chopped coarsely
* 2 cloves garlic, crushed
* 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry red wine
* 2 medium carrots, chopped coarsely
* 2 stalks celery, trimmed, chopped coarsely
* 2 medium parsnips, chopped coarsely
* 2 1/2 cups (625 ml) beef stock
* 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
* 1/3 cup freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley to serve

1. Toss veal or beef in flour to coat, shake off excess. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and cook meat in batches until browned. Transfer to 4.5 litre (18-cup) slow cooker.

2. Heat remaining oil in same pan and cook onion and garlic, stirring, for 5 minutes, until onion softens. Add wine and bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, until liquid reduces by half.

3. Stir onion mixture into cooker with carrot, celery, parsnip, stock, and rosemary. Cook, covered, on low, for about 8 hours. Season to taste.

4. Serve casserole topped with parsley.

Serving suggestion: crusty bread or soft creamy polenta.

I have never made polenta before but I am going to try.
