Potatoes and Rice
2 cups rice (uncooked)
1/4 cup butter
2 onions sliced thinly
4 medium potatoes  that have been peeled, baked or boiled then cut into bite
size chunks
1 tsp. salt (or more, if taste requires)
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. coriander seed
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 inch of fresh ginger root (peeled)
4 cups boiling water
Add all together and cook over medium heat (covered pan) until rice is tender. (Keep in mind that some types of rice take longer than others. Brown rice, takes about 45 minutes, while white long grain rice takes about 20 minutes.) This is very good served with pot roast.


   8      tablespoons   butter
   4      tablespoons   brown sugar -- optional
   4      shallots -- chopped
   4      cloves garlic -- chopped
   4      teaspoons fresh rosemary -- chopped
   4      teaspoons fresh thyme -- chopped
   8      tablespoons sherry vinegar
   4      tablespoons beef stock -- chicken, veal or other
   4      whole Vidalia onions -- or other sweet onions
           A few tablespoons good olive -- or other salad oil
   4      large shiitake mushroom caps -- or any variety
   4      ounces  Smithfield ham – diced or --any smoked ham
   4      tablespoons   chives -- chopped
   1      red ripe tomatoes -- diced
           salt and freshly cracked pepper

4 pieces of aluminum foil, each around one foot square

Here is Jeff Buben's whole, baked onion recipe, from his Vidalia Restaurant.
1990 M Street, NW, Washington, DC  202-659-1990. Serves four:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay each piece of foil flat, and spoon 1/4 of each of the first six ingredients (the butter, brown sugar if desired, shallots, garlic, rosemary and thyme) onto the center of each piece.

For each onion: cut off the shriveled end, then cut 6-8 shallow slits just through the brown peel, going lengthwise all the way from the shriveled end to the root; pull back the flaps of peel in a bunch, like a pony tail, over the root; plop the onion on top of the pile of seasonings on the foil, and then bunch the foil all around it, so the whole onion is completely wrapped -- except for the bunched up onion peel, which should be poking out the top.

Pour 1/4 of the sherry vinegar and stock, plus a few pinches of salt and pepper, into each of the foil packets before giving the foil a final pinch to seal it well, and bake on a cooking sheet for around 45 minutes or until soft. (Note: the onion peel will be black.)

When the onion is done, heat a tablespoon or so of butter or olive oil in a sauté pan over medium high-high heat, add the mushroom chunks and ham and sauté until slightly browned, stir in the diced tomato, pour in the juices from the onion packets, stir until hot and then remove from heat. Salt and pepper to taste, add a bit more sherry vinegar if desired, and then whisk in additional salad oil (if desired) to make it into a vinaigrette.

Put each onion in the center of a plate and spoon sauce around it, and sprinkle with chives.


1 tbsp. olive oil
4 salmon fillets, 3/4" thick each
 Lemon pepper seasoning
1 can (14 oz.) chicken broth with Italian herbs
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
 Hot cooked rice, cooked without salt

Heat oil in skillet. Add salmon, skin-side up, and cook until browned, about 5 min. Turn salmon and season with lemon pepper.

Add 1/2 cup broth. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 5 min. or until done. Remove salmon and keep warm.

Mix remaining broth, vinegar and cornstarch. Add to skillet and cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens. Place rice in bowls and top with salmon. Spoon sauce over all. Serves 4.

1 can (29 ounces) pear halves, drained
4 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 English muffins, crumbled

Butterscotch Sauce:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
Fresh pear slices, optional

Coarsely chop pears; place in a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Add the milk, vanilla, lemon peel and salt; mix well. Stir in crumbled English muffins; pour over pears. Bake, uncovered, at 350F for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly on a wire rack.

For butterscotch sauce, combine brown sugar and butter in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted. Gradually add 1/2 cup cream. Bring to a slow boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla; set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the remaining cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Cut the pie into wedges. Garnish with whipped cream and pear slices if desired. Serve with butterscotch sauce. Yield: 8 servings.

(Pronounced: “crepps”; Rhymes with “steps.” NOT “crapes” to rhyme with “grapes”.)

In Breton tradition, the imperfect first crepe in every batch is torn up and tossed into the soup pot or added to scrambled eggs with bacon. Both types of buckwheat flour are available at health-food stores, including Wild Oats and Whole Foods. Note that the crepe batter needs to mature overnight.

3 eggs
1 cup white buckwheat flour
1/4 cup whole buckwheat flour
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 pound Gruyere, freshly grated
4 tablespoons butter

Whisk the eggs with 1 1/2 cups water in a large mixing bowl. Sift together white and whole buckwheat flour, salt and pepper to taste; stir into egg mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

To cook, heat a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is very hot, remove from heat and pour 1/4 cup batter into the center. Tilt the pan to distribute batter and return to heat. Cook the crepe until lightly browned, about 2 minutes, then flip with a spatula and cook 1 more minute. Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a low oven while making remaining crepes.

Return crepes to pan one at a time, sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese and fold to make a square. Cook until the cheese melts, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately, seam side down, with a pat of butter. Makes 8 crepes. Source: Saveur Cooks Authentic French (Chronicle, 1999).


3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

Makes 1 serving. From En Fuego in Del Mar, Calif. Owner John Wingate's nickname "Bubba" also became the name for the restaurant's signature margarita, which substitutes Grand Marnier for triple sec and sweetens the cocktail further with a splash of fresh orange juice. Serve with or without salt on the rim of the glass.

1 1/2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
Splash orange juice
6 oz. sweet-and-sour mix
Fresh lime

Into shaker with ice, pour tequila, Grand Marnier, orange juice and sweet-and-sour mix. Shake well, then strain into margarita glass, over more ice, if desired. Add squeeze of fresh lime; garnish with lime wedge.


1 large head cabbage frozen
1 pkg of marrow bones
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes with green pepper & onion
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes with garlic & onion
2 onions chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup ketchup
1 1/2 lb ground round
1 onion grated
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup uncooked rice, cooked
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
salt to taste

Combine the bones, the tomatoes and the chopped onions in a large pot. simmer at least two hours. Remove the bones and refrigerate overnight to make it easy to remove the fat.  Remove cabbage from freezer at least 4 hrs ahead of time.  Break off leaves as needed. Bring the tomato sauce to a simmer. Mix the beef, grated onion, 1-2 tsp salt, pepper, rice, and the beaten egg. Mix until well blended. Place a heaping tablespoon of the meat on each cabbage leaf. Tuck in
sides and carefully roll into a neat package. As you complete a roll, lower it into the now simmering sauce. When all of the rolls are in the pot, you may want to add a can of tomato sauce just so the rolls have a moist cover at the beginning. Simmer about half an hour. then add the lemon juice and sugar. Cook another hour or more. Taste and correct for sweet and sour flavor. The sauce should be
both. So keep adding lemon juice or sugar until the taste is as you like it.
Serve with French bread for sopping up the sauce.


   4      cups          coarsely chopped onions
   2      tablespoons   peanut oil
   2                    garlic cloves -- minced
   1      teaspoon      grated fresh ginger
   1 1/2  tablespoons   ground cumin seeds
   1 1/2  tablespoons   ground coriander seeds
   1 1/2  teaspoons     cinnamon
   1      teaspoon      turmeric
     1/2  teaspoon      cayenne
     1/2  teaspoon      ground fennel seeds
     1/4  teaspoon      black cardamom
     1/4  teaspoon      ground cloves
   2      medium        zucchini -- quartered and sliced
   1 1/2  cups          water
   1      cup           green beans
   2                    firm, tart apples -- cored and cubed
     1/2                red bell pepper
   1      cup           chopped dried apricots
     1/2  cup           raisins
     1/2  cup           strawberry conserve
                        fresh lemon juice

Sauté the onions in the peanut oil for 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic, ginger and curry spices and continue to sauté, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.

Add the zucchini and water and stir well so that the spices won't stick to the pot. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix in the green beans, apple, peppers and dried apricots. Simmer gently, covered for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a little more water if needed to prevent sticking. When the fruit and vegetables are quite tender, stir in the raisins, the conserve and the lemon juice. Taste and adjust to your liking if necessary. If you need it to be more spicy, add more cayenne or garam masala. If you want it sweeter, add more conserve; tarter, add more lemon juice. Serve on a bed of rice, topped with nuts and banana.

(Eggplant Veggie Salad)

3 eggplants cut into 1" cubes, salted and drained well.
6 ribs celery, cut into 1 inch lengths
1 cup olive oil, plus 3 tablespoons
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup sliced green olives
1/2 cup rinsed salt packed capers
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
3Tbsp sugar (this cuts the acid)
6 basil leaves
3 garlic cloves
28 ounce can San Marzano diced tomatoes (or any canned tomatoes will do)

Place 3 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the basil and garlic. Sauté briefly. Add the tomatoes and cook for 40 minutes. Season, and measure out 2 cups of sauce for the caponata. Freeze the rest.

Blanch the celery in boiling water for 1 minute, reserve. Heat half the oil in a large skillet and fry the eggplant cubes until browned. Wipe out pan, add remaining oil, and sauté the onions until browned.

Add celery, olives, capers, tomato sauce, vinegar and sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes and add the eggplant. Cook for 10 minutes more. Season and remove from heat. Let cool and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.

Since eating garlic is said to kill germs in the body, think of
this soup as cold and flu prevention, too.


1/4 cup olive oil
4-8 thick slices stale baguette
Generous handful chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 heads (that’s heads, not cloves—really!) garlic, peeled and chopped
2 tsp smoked Spanish paprika
1 quart water
Salt and pepper
4 eggs

Heat half the oil in a pot and brown the slices of bread on both sides. Place the bread in 4 soup bowls and scatter with parsley.

Add remaining oil to pot and fry garlic until just barely beginning to brown. Stir in paprika. Add water and bring to a boil. Season to taste.

Pour the soup over the bread in the 4 bowls. Break a raw egg over each dish.

Each individual diner will cook the egg to taste by stirring it into the hot soup while eating. This makes it resemble the familiar Chinese egg drop soup.
Serves 4.

Yield: 6 servings

6 pork chops
1/4 cup soy flour
Butter to fry in
3/4 cup heavy cream
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Coat the chops with the seasoned flour, and brown in butter. Heat milk and add cream cheese, garlic salt and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, mixing well until blended. Place chops in a 12 x 8-inch baking dish. Cover with sauce and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Bake at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes, or until chops are tender.

1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1-1/2 cups 1 percent low-fat milk
3/4 cup low-fat sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp. amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
15 ladyfingers
1 (20 oz.) can light cherry pie filling

 Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Set aside.

Remove from heat. Place pan in a large ice-filled bowl for 25 minutes or until egg mixture comes to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Stir in sour cream and vanilla.

Combine orange juice and amaretto. Split the ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Arrange 10 ladyfinger halves, flat sides up, in a single layer in the bottom of a 2-quart soufflé dish. Brush 2 Tbsp. orange juice mixture over ladyfingers in the dish. Spread about 1 cup pie filling evenly over ladyfingers. Spread about 1 cup custard mixture over pie filling. Brush 10 ladyfinger halves with 2 Tbsp. orange juice mixture, and line dish with ladyfinger halves standing upright. Arrange
10 ladyfinger halves over custard mixture, and brush them with the remaining orange juice mixture. Spread remaining pie filling over ladyfingers. Spread remaining custard mixture over pie filling. Cover and chill for at least 8 hours.

Serves:  4

1/4 cup  flour
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
2 skinned, boned chicken breasts, about 1 lb, halved and pounded to 1/4 inches. 5 tsp corn oil
1/4 cup chicken  broth
2 tbsb lemon juice
2 tbsb capers, drained
 Combine the flour, pepper and paprika on a plate. Press the chicken breasts  into the mixture, coating them evenly all over and shaking off any excess.
In a heavy 10 in skillet, heat the corn oil over mod high heat for 1 minute. Add the breasts and cook about 3 minutes on each side, do not overcook. Transfer the breast to a heated platter.
Add the chicken broth to the skillet scraping up any browned bits on the bottom. Stir in the lemon juice and capers and heat through. Pour the sauce over the breasts and serve.


1 pound fresh or frozen chicken breast meat cut in strips or chunks.
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup water
1/3 sweet red pepper
1/3 Vidalia onion
Mrs. Dash original
1/2 cup almond flour (available at health food stores or in the health food section
of your grocery store)
salt to taste (eliminate if possible)

Prepare your chicken, defrosting frozen or washing and drying fresh.

Put olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.  Add chicken, browning lightly. Season with Mrs. Dash.  Add water, then lower heat and simmer lightly (uncovered) until chicken is almost done.  Be careful not to overcook the chicken, since it can become rubbery or dry.  Increase heat, add peppers and onions and simmer for a couple of minutes until the vegetables are lightly cooked.  Reduce the heat, add Mrs. Dash and the almond flour and stir constantly until the almond flour makes a medium gravy.

Note:  This flour thickens quickly, so stir constantly, adding water (or chicken or vegetable broth) if necessary to correct consistency.  Remove from heat, taste and correct seasoning, using a little salt if desired. Almond flour is low in carbohydrates, high in fiber and micronutrients, and loaded with flavor.

Crispy Soft-Shell Crabs:
  4 soft-shell crabs
  3 tablespoons Creole seasoning (found at most supermarkets) divided,
plus additional amount to taste for seasoning the crabs
  1 1/2 cups flour
  3 medium eggs
  1 cup milk
  1 1/2 cups fine bread crumbs
  2 quarts canola oil for frying
  4 large vine-ripened tomatoes, cored and sliced 1/2-inch thick
  1 large sweet onion, sliced very thin
  1/4 pound mixed salad greens, rinsed and dried
  kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Ravigote Sauce:
  1 cup mayonnaise
  1/3 cup Creole or spicy mustard
  1/3 cup drained prepared horseradish
  1/3 to 1/2 cup minced scallion, or to taste
  2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  Fresh lemon juice to taste

For the Crispy Soft-Shell Crabs:
Have the fishmonger clean the crabs. In a shallow bowl combine 1 tablespoon of Creole seasoning with the flour. In another shallow bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and 1 tablespoon of the Creole seasoning. In a third shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs with 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning.

In a large heavy frying pot, heat the oil to 325 degrees F on a deep-fat thermometer.

While the oil is heating, arrange the tomatoes, onions, and greens on four large plates. Season with salt and pepper.

Lightly dust each crab with flour, getting an even coat on all legs, top and bottom, and where legs meet the body of crab. Dip each crab in the egg wash, letting excess drip off, then place in bread crumbs to coat evenly, shaking off excess.

With tongs, hold body of crab securely and submerge just the legs in oil for about 30 seconds. Then submerge whole crab in oil and cook for about 3 minutes, or until golden-brown. When done, place crab on a paper towel, season with Creole seasoning, then place on a tray. Put tray in oven on very low heat to keep warm. Repeat process with each crab you cook.

Arrange crabs on salad and top with Ravigote Sauce. Serve immediately.

For the Ravigote Sauce:
In a bowl combine all ingredients. Serve with the Soft-Shell Crabs.

Heat chocolate until melted. Drizzle over frosted bars. Refrigerate 2 hours or until almost hard. Remove squares, along with foil, from pan. Fold foil back to cut squares. Cover and refrigerate any remaining squares.  Yield: 36 servings.


For the caramel sauce:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4-6 ripe pears, quartered and cored
4-6 slices pound cake
Powdered (confectioner's) sugar

Place the sugar in a small heavy saucepan over moderate heat and cook without touching the sugar but gently swirling the pan until the sugar is melted and dark brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Note: Use extreme caution because the sugar is very hot. 

Meanwhile, bring the cream and butter to a simmer in a different pan.  Add the cream mixture to the sugar very carefully because it will bubble violently and the sugar will stiffen.  Stir in the vanilla and continue cooking until the sugar melts again and the sauce becomes smooth.  Set the sauce aside.

Sprinkle the pear quarters and slices of pound cake generously with powdered sugar.  Grill over hot coals or under a preheated broiler, turning once, until the pears are tender, 5 to 7 minutes, and the pound cake is lightly toasted, about 1 minute.  Place the pears on top of the pound cake and drizzle with the caramel sauce.  Serves 4 to 6.

1    cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
3    egg yolks
1    cup sugar
1    tsp baking soda
2    tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1    tsp vanilla
4    cups flour
Combine all ingredients. Roll out & cut in strips about 1/2" wide & 8" long. Form into a figure eight & bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 min. Do not over-bake.


For the cake:
  3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  2 1/4 cups sugar
  3 cups self-rising flour
  1 1/2 cups milk
  1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  6 large egg whites

For the filling:
  3/4 cup milk
  1/2 cup sugar
  2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
  2 tablespoons apple-oatmeal cookie crumbs
  1/4 cup finely chopped toasted almonds
  1/4 cup maraschino cherries, quartered
  1/2 teaspoon almond extract

For the frosting:
  3 large egg whites
  1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1/2 cup cold water
  1 1/2 cups sugar
  1/8 teaspoon plus 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

For the garnish:
  Apple-oatmeal cookie crumbs to taste
  4 maraschino cherries, halved

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease three 9 by 2-inch round cake pans, line with wax paper, and grease the paper. Dust the pans with flour, shaking out the excess, and set aside.

Make the cake: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer cream the butter until smooth. Add 2 cups of the sugar, a little at a time, and beat mixture until it is light and fluffy. Add the flour in three parts, alternating with the milk and the extracts, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, with an electric mixer beat the
whites until they form very soft peaks. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and beat the whites until they hold firm (not stiff) peaks. Gently fold 1/4 of the whites at a time into the batter until thoroughly blended. Divide the batter among the cake pans and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the centers of the cakes comes out clean. Let cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes; invert the cakes onto racks to cool completely.

Make the filling: In a saucepan set over moderate heat, combine the milk, sugar, and flour, and whisk the mixture until it comes to a boil. Lower the heat and whisk constantly until it is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in the coconut, cookie crumbs, almonds, cherries, and almond extract. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let cool to room temperature.

Assemble the cake: When the cakes have cooled, spread half the filling between the first two layers, then the other half between the second and third layers. The cake should be assembled so it can be iced as soon as the frosting is completed.

Make the frosting: In a bowl, with an electric mixer combine the egg whites and vanilla extract and set aside. In a saucepan over moderately high heat combine the water, sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon of the cream of tartar. Simmer mixture, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Boil the syrup, and, with a brush dipped in cold water, brush down sides of pan until mixture reaches soft-ball stage and a candy thermometer registers 230 degrees F, about 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately remove pan from heat.

Beat egg whites with the remaining cream of tartar on medium-high speed until fluffy (about 1 minute). Without turning off mixer, pour the sugar syrup into the beaten egg whites in a thin, steady stream. Continue beating on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form but frosting is still creamy. Frost top and sides of cake immediately.

Generously sprinkle top of cake with cookie crumbs and place halved cherries on top in a decorative fashion.


4 egg whites
2 egg yolks
2 tsp lemon peel, finely shredded
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp margarine; melted
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup skim milk
vanilla frozen yogurt or ice milk -- optional

In a medium bowl, place egg whites, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Set beaten egg whites aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine egg yolks, lemon peel, lemon juice, and melted margarine. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until well mixed. I n another mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Using electric mixer on low speed, add sugar mixture to egg yolk mixture alternately with skim milk , beating just until combined after each addition. Fold about one-third of the flour mixture into
the egg whites. Then fold egg white mixture into the remaining flour mixture. Pour into a 2-quart square baking dish. Place baking dish in a large baking pan; pour hot water into baking pan around baking dish to a depth of 1 inch.

Bake in a 350* oven about 40 minutes or till top is golden brown.

Remove large pan from oven. Carefully lift the baking dish from the water; transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm. Top with frozen yogurt or ice milk, if desired.


2-3 pounds-cooked shrimp
1 cup-cooked brown rice
1 1/2 cup-sharp cheddar cheese
1 can-cream of celery soup
1/2 cup-green onion, chopped
1 red or orange bell pepper, chopped (or some of both)
1/2 cup-celery, chopped
1 stick-butter
2 lemons, thinly sliced (remove the seeds)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix shrimp, rice, cheese, and soup in large bowl.  Sauté peppers, onion and celery in butter.  Add to shrimp mixture. Pour all into a long flat casserole.  Cover top with lemon slices, doubling up if necessary.  Cook covered for 20 minutes. Serves 6

(Cinnamon and Honey Fritters)

3 teaspoons fresh yeast, or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried yeast
1 1/4 cups warm water (maybe less – do it gradually)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups corn oil, for frying
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon

8 tablespoons honey

Dissolve the fresh yeast in half a teacup of the warm water, add the sugar to it, to activate, and let it stand for about 15 minutes in a warm place, until it starts to froth. The liquid must not be too hot as it will kill the yeast cells.

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and empty the dissolved yeast or the dried yeast into it, mixing continuously. This can be done with an electric mixer. Start adding the warm water, beating all the time. The mixture should be thick but elastic.
When almost all the water has been added (it may take 2-3 tablespoons less than the 300 ml), beat it for a few minutes until it starts to bubble. Cover it with a thick towel and leave in a warm place for about 2 hours, until it rises and almost
doubles in size.

Have a cup of cold water ready into which you can wet a teaspoon and also the fingers of your hand each time. Heat the oil until very hot but not smoking. Wet the teaspoon so that the dough will not stick on it, take a teaspoon of the dough, and, using your hand, push it down into the hot oil (take care not to burn yourself!). Within seconds, it puffs up and rises to thesurface.

Repeat this process, wetting the spoon each time, for about 6-7 loukoumades at a time. Turn them over so they become golden all around - it only takes 1 minute. Take them out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Serve 4-5 loukoumades on each plate, pour a tablespoon of honey all over them and sprinkle on a lot of cinnamon.

They should be eaten immediately and also they should not be left waiting once the syrupy honey bas been spread on them. Loukoumades that are served cold and soggy have no relationship with real loukoumades. Serves 12 persons.

Greek Egg Confection

1/4 cup peanut oil
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup flour
6 eggs
Oil for deep frying

In a 3 quart saucepan bring water and oil to a boil. Add flour and remove from heat. Work dough with a wooden spoon until smooth. Let cool. When cool, add eggs, one at a time, working the batter till smooth after each added egg. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet. Temperature should be about 380 F. When hot, drop in 1 teaspoon of dough at a time, and fry till brown. Prick with a fork, and then turn each ball over. When golden brown on both sides, remove and drain on an absorbent paper. Serve immediately, coated with sauce (see below).

Sauce for Loucoumades

1 cup honey
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
Juice of one lemon (app. 1/3 cup)
Brandy to taste (app. 1/3 cup)

Heat honey in a saucepan. Add sugar and water and mix. Keeping the mixture warm, cover the heated mixture with cinnamon (not a thick coat, just sprinkled on) and then mix in lemon juice. Lastly, add brandy.

The original oil used in Greece was doubtless olive oil, but the author has always used peanut oil, which gives it a nice nutty flavor. They prefer a thicker, more tangy sauce and use much less sugar and water than this recipe calls for. Maybe just a couple of tablespoons each.

Traditional Scottish shortbread is baked in molds. In this modern version, the dough is simply pressed into a pan, baked, and cut into squares. Grated lemon peel cuts the buttery richness, and semolina flour adds texture.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup semolina flour*
1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup shelled natural pistachios (about 4 ounces), coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter a 13x9x2-inch metal baking pan. Combine all purpose flour, sugar, and semolina flour in processor; blend 5 seconds. Add butter, lemon peel, and vanilla. Using on/off turns, blend until coarse meal forms. Turn dough out into bowl. Add nuts and knead gently to combine. Press dough evenly over bottom of prepared pan. Using fork, pierce dough all over.

Bake shortbread until pale brown in center and golden at edges, about 35 minutes. Cool in pan on rack 10 minutes. Cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 6 squares. Cool completely in pan. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover tightly with foil; store at room temperature.)

*Semolina flour, often labeled "pasta flour," is available at specialty foods stores, Italian markets, and some supermarkets. Makes 24 cookies.


2 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp juice from a jar of pickled jalapeno chilies
1 lb. fish filets from any firm white fish such as cod, haddock, or whiting
12 taco shells, warmed
2 cups finely shredded lettuce
6 scallions, very thinly sliced, tops included
1 tomato, sliced in half and then in thin slices
1 and 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
1 recipe Creamy Salsa (recipe follows)

Place broth, salt, lime juice, and jalapeno juice in a skillet. Heat to simmer, add fish filets, and poach until fish turns white, about five minutes. Do not overcook. Meanwhile, warm taco shells in a 225 degree F. oven.

Remove fish from pan, drain well, and place in a shallow bowl. Flake the fish by gently pulling it apart with two forks.

Assemble the tacos by first placing a little lettuce in each warm taco shell. Next, add fish, scallions, grated cheese, and tomato. Stand upright in a baking dish and warm briefly in a preheated 425 degree F. oven until cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately with Creamy Salsa.

Creamy Salsa

To make with sugar:  clean and cut rhubarb in to about 1 1/2 " pieces, place into heave 3-qt pot, add sugar, cover, let sit 4 hours or overnight [the sugar will draw out some of the juice from the fruit]. Next morning start cooking over medium heat. Bring to slow boil, reduce heat, simmer about 15 minutes, till rhubarb is very soft. Add can of pineapple [with its juice], heat through. add 2 boxes strawberry jell-o, stir to blend and dissolve sugar. Place in hot, sterile jars, seal.

To make sugar-free: clean and cut rhubarb into 1 1/2 " pieces. add 1/2 cup water, bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer 15 minutes or until rhubarb is soft. Add pineapple and Splenda, heat through, add 2 pkg sugar-free jell-o. Be very careful with the jell-o, as the sugar-free variety does not dissolve quite as nicely as the regular. Place in hot, sterile jars, seal.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Arrange the artichokes stem-end down in a large steamer basket. Set the basket in a large pot with 2 inches of water and a tablespoon of salt; cover and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to moderate and steam artichokes until tender when pierced with a knife, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let cool enough to handle. Remove the artichoke leaves (eat them as a snack, if you like). Using a teaspoon, scrape out the hairy chokes. Cut each artichoke bottom into eighths, like a pie.

In a skillet set over moderately high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil until very hot. Add the artichoke slices, garlic, and salt and pepper, and cook, stirring 2 minutes, or until garlic is golden-brown. Be careful not to burn garlic. Remove the pan from heat and add the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and the oregano; stir gently.

In a large bowl combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper, and drizzle lightly with additional olive oil. Note that up to this point, the recipe can be done ahead. The artichokes and seasoned bread crumbs can be refrigerated separately for one day.

Set the oysters in their shells on large baking sheets, fitting them snugly to prevent tilting. Place 1 artichoke slice plus a portion of the garlic mixture on each oyster, drizzle with additional olive oil, and mound 2 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs on top.

Roast the oysters in the upper third of the oven for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the serving platter with 1/4 inch of the rock salt and top with the remaining garnish ingredients. Heat the serving platter on the lower rack of the oven for 2 minutes while the oysters finish roasting.

To serve: Layer the kosher or rock salt and the garnish on individual plates or a large serving platter, and arrange the oysters on top. (The salt and garnish are not eaten.) Serve immediately.

How To Roast Peppers
Arrange whole bell peppers or large chile peppers on foil-lined baking sheet. Place under broiler 2 to 4 inches from heat source. Use kitchen tongs to turn peppers as skin becomes blackened. Continue rotating peppers until skin is entirely blackened. Using tongs, put blackened peppers in a paper bag; close bag. Keep peppers in bag until cooled completely, about 20 minutes. Remove peppers from bag. Peel away blackened skin using a small knife; discard skin. Cut peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds, using knife edge. Then, use roasted peppers as directed in recipe.

  36 jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined, tails intact
  6 ounces spicy tasso (available at specialty markets) or other spicy ham, cut
into 1-inch julienne strips
  2 cups flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  3 tablespoons (more or less) olive oil for frying the shrimp
  1/2 cup Crystal Hot Sauce Beurre Blanc (recipe follows)
  Five-Pepper Jelly (recipe follows)
  18 pickled okra, drained and halved lengthwise
  Mixed salad greens for garnish

Crystal Hot Sauce Beurre Blanc:
  1 garlic clove, minced
  1 shallot, minced
  1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  5 ounces Crystal Hot Sauce (available in specialty stores)
  1/4 cup heavy cream
  1 1/2 pounds unsalted butter, cut into bits

Five-Pepper Jelly:
  3/4 cup light Karo syrup
  3/4 cup white vinegar
  1 each small red, yellow, and green bell pepper, diced
  1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  Salt to taste

For the Shrimp and Tasso:
With a small sharp knife make a 1/4-inch incision down the back of each shrimp and place one julienne strip of tasso in each incision. Secure with a toothpick. Lightly dust each shrimp with seasoned flour, shaking off excess.

Pour oil into large skillet, set over moderate heat, and heat until hot. Add the shrimp in batches and fry them on each side for 1-2 minutes or until golden-brown. Transfer shrimp to a plate lined with paper towels and keep warm (cover or place in oven on low heat) while frying remaining shrimp.

Remove toothpicks and transfer shrimp to a large bowl. Add the Crystal Hot Sauce Beurre Blanc and gently toss to coat the shrimp.

To serve: Spread some of the Five-Pepper Jelly on the bottoms of 12 small serving plates and arrange three shrimp on each plate, alternating with the pickled okra. Top each plate with a small mound of the salad greens.

For the Crystal Hot Sauce Beurre Blanc
In a heavy saucepan set over moderate heat, cook the garlic and the shallot in 1 tablespoon of butter, stirring for 2 minutes or until softened. Add the Crystal Hot Sauce and reduce by two-thirds. Add the cream and reduce by half. Whisk in the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue whisking until butter is just melted (do not allow it to separate). Immediately add another tablespoon of butter,
whisking, until just incorporated. Continue to add butter to pan in this manner, whisking all the time, until all butter is incorporated. Remove from heat.

For the Five-Pepper Jelly
In a heavy saucepan combine the light syrup and vinegar, and boil over moderately high heat until sticky. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, until peppers are soft. Add salt to taste.


For sauce
1 medium garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

For steak
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 lb skirt steak, cut crosswise into 3- to 4-inch pieces

and add remaining sauce ingredients, then blend until smooth.

Grill steak: Stir together cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pat steak
dry, then rub both sides of pieces with cumin mixture.

Heat an oiled well-seasoned ridged grill pan over high heat until hot but not smoking, then grill steak in 2 batches, turning over occasionally, about 2 minutes per batch for thin pieces or 6 to 8 minutes per batch for thicker pieces (medium-rare). Serve steak drizzled with sauce. Makes 6 servings.


1 medium spaghetti squash, cooked
4 eggs
2 tablespoons chopped green onion or chives
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil for skillet

Add eggs, onion or chives, salt and pepper to cooked spaghetti squash. Form into 3 inch patties. Heat oil in a skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. (For a different flavor, you can sauté the patties in butter. For an Asian flair, sauté in canola oil mixed with a few drops of sesame oil, serve with soy sauce.) Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spoon 1/4 cup squash mixture into skillet. With a fork, press to form an evenly thick cake. Repeat. Cook
cakes until bottoms are lightly browned, turn over and brown second side. Continue until you've used all the squash mixture. Use additional butter if necessary. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with sour cream. Makes About 30 Patties

This recipe can be made in a crock-pot

1 large package of chicken wings (any chicken pieces can be used)
1-2 pounds of medium-size shrimp (canned or frozen shrimp can be used)
1-2 tablespoons of Olive oil
4-8 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped (the amount is to your taste)
1-2 green bell peppers, chopped or sliced thin
½ cup of chopped or sliced green olives
1 regular-size can of tomato soup
1 regular-size can of onion soup
1 regular-size can of diced tomatoes
2 ½ soup-size cans of water
1 teaspoon of oregano spice
Season salt
Garlic powder
1 teaspoon of salt, preferably kosher salt
Dash of regular-grind black pepper
2 cups of uncooked white minute-rice (Instant Rice)

Clean and rinse chicken wings or chicken pieces and shrimp under cold water, set aside to drain.

Add enough olive oil to a large skillet to completely cover the bottom of the skillet.

Turn the heat to a little more than medium and add the chicken wings or pieces, but do not over crowd them.

Season the chicken with season salt, garlic powder, black pepper and oregano.

Brown the chicken wings or chicken pieces using 2 batches if necessary or use 2 separate skillets simultaneously.

Once the chicken wings or pieces are lightly brown remove them from the skillet and place them in a deep cooking pot or crock-pot.

It is not necessary to cook the chicken wings until done; you only need to brown them, as they will finish cooking later.

Add the 2 cans of soup and the water to the pot or crock-pot at this time.

Add all of the garlic and all of the sliced or chopped bell pepper to the skillet that you brown the chicken pieces in and cook over medium-low heat until brown.

Use the original olive oil that was in the skillet; do not add more olive oil.

Once the garlic and bell pepper is brown add them to the pot or crock-pot with the chicken pieces, soup and water.

Stir the ingredients together and turn the heat to medium-high.

Add the diced tomatoes, sliced olives and kosher salt at this time. Stir and cover with a lid.

Once the ingredients in the pot begins to bubble and get hot, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken wings or chicken pieces are cooked through and tender.

Add the shrimp, stir, cover and cook until the shrimp turns pink.

If you are using canned or frozen shrimp cook until the shrimp is hot.

If you are using a crock-pot…start the crock-pot on high and once it gets hot, turn the heat down to low, add the shrimp and cook approximately 3-5 hours or until the chicken wings or chicken pieces are tender and cooked through.

Note; Actually the meal will most likely be ready much sooner, but when cooking in a crock-pot on low it has enough liquid to continue cooking by steam on low for several hours.

When the chicken is tender and you feel your meal is ready add the 2-cups of instant minute-rice and continue cooking until the rice is done, stirring periodically.

Delicious served with hot crescent rolls or fresh baked bread and butter.
