My great grandmother had a few pecan trees in her yard. I used to love going to pick them and eating all the stuff she'd make with them, particularly pecan pie. Yummy!

Andria, it was actually an Adi Dick article where I saw the mee goregn mentioned! If only I had some "Bertold' to add to the dish. :wink:

Trust me and I'm not trying to brag but after you make these you'll never want to eat those overly sweet premixed pancakes again. You can also use a little less milk and make the batter a little thicker and use it for waffles too.

Any time, my friend! Any time! My door is always open. Which isn't always good, especially in winter! I've got to get smarter about that kind of thing. :D

Carol helped me spend a X-mas gift card yesterday. We picked out a fire pit for the deck... LOVE IT! Last night we wrapped ourselves in coats and blankets and sat around it having dinner. It was really lovely.

*swoon* Adi Dick - enough said (if you happen to remember where the article is located - send it to me later! :pray:)
I was wondering what mee goreng was! Thanks for posting the recipe, Jones. I'll have to attempt it one of these days.

Jp - the pancake recipe looks so easy! Mix Dry, Mix Wet, Combine - so simple! Even I should be able to do that...

There are a ton out there and all have their own variations, but I thought I'd post one anyway. I might have to try this this week. Probably not as good without the special ingredient. :wink:

I got this one here.

Mee Goreng Recipe #131560
Reminds me most pleasantly of SE Asia, with the most intoxicating smell... Note: It's a stir-fry, so you can add anything you want e.g 1 potato, some shrimp, chicken or other meat, other vegetables etc.
500 g fresh hokkein noodles
50 ml oil
100 g deep fried tofu
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 medium onion, choppede
1 ripe tomato, diced
1 tablespoon hot chili sauce
4 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 stalk spring onions, sliced
1 large green chilies, deseeded and sliced
2 cucumbers, chopped

4-6 servings


Put the noodles into a colander and rinse under warm running water, or separate according to instructions. Drain and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok. Add curry powder and onion and stir-fry over medium heat until soft, about 4 minute.
Add the noodles, tomato, chilli sauce, tomato sauce and soy sauce and stir-fry over medium heat for 3 min, mixing well.
Pour over the beaten egg and leave to set for a min or so, then mix in with the noodles.
Add the tofu.
Add the spring onions, cucumber and chilli.
Serve with additional tomato and chilli sauce, and cucumber slices on the side, if desired.


That does sound good. Although the girlfriend and I scream and run like a couple of 6 year olds at even the sound of tofu. We could like you said sub some shrimp.

As far as the pecans go, Indi I even like to crush them up really fine and add them along with some parmesean to bread crumbs. You can use it on fish or chicken.

Cooking with Twinkies: Try This Yummy Recipe
Dateline: Kitchens nationwide

Chances are you've had a Twinkie. But have you had a Twinkie burrito? A Twinkie banana split? Or, heaven help us, Pigs in a Twinkie?

You can now, because there's a new book that contains all these recipes. Last year the Interstate Bakeries Corporation, makers of Hostess Twinkies, put out a call for recipes to celebrate the 75th anniversary of their iconic snack cake. They tested them and chose 50 of the best to be in The Twinkies Cookbook, which was just published by 10 Speed Press.

"Are they serious?" I asked a spokesperson for the publisher, who assured me that the company was "serious about the product but having fun with it." Because no matter how much you like these cream-filled sponge cakes — 500 million are bought every year — they are kind of complete in themselves. A glass of milk, maybe, or a cup of tea, but what's with Twinkie Sushi, Twinkie Kebabs, and Twinkie-Misu?

It turns out that fans have been sending recipes to the Twinkies Web site for years, telling the company about the way they use the product to replace cake and lady fingers in desserts such as trifles and ice cream sundaes. With that in mind, I decided to try for myself. I quickly discarded any recipe that mixed the snack cakes with savory items such as chicken (as in Twinkie Chicken Salad), turkey (as in Twinkie Turkey Stuffing) or eggs (as in that familiar brunch dish, French Twinkies). And I knew I didn't have the small motor skills needed to make Twinkie Sushi. Instead, I picked a recipe that I thought might have a chance of being edible or, in this case, drinkable: I would make a Twinkie Milkshake.

The Twinkie Milkshake recipe made a kind of sense: Contributor Brenda McDevitt of Worth, Illinois, wrote that she came up with it because her daughter Sarah loves to dunk Twinkies in chocolate milkshakes. And — surprise! — the recipe worked just as McDevitt said. Everything went into the blender at once and what came out was a sweet drink that was no thicker than a usual milkshake: It had none of the cake sludge I was expecting. I'm not sure that the Twinkies added anything but calories, but the 10-year-old who helped me make it said she was sure she could taste the Twinkie cream.

— Irene Sax

More from Epicurious: For more campy cuisine, check out our Daily Dish on the White Castle cookbook. And for slightly more serious food tomes, see Irene Sax's latest batch of reviews in Around the World in Cookbooks.

TWINKIE MILKSHAKE
Editor's note: The recipe below is excerpted from The Twinkies Cookbook. To read more about the book, click here.

"I created this special family recipe on a whim. My daughter, Sarah, would always dunk Twinkies in chocolate milkshakes. so one day, I made her a chocolate shake and added Twinkies to it. It is still one of her — and the rest of the family's — favorites."
Brenda McDevitt, Worth, Illinois

2 Twinkies
2 scoops chocolate ice cream
1 cup milk
Whipped cream, for topping


In a blender, combine the Twinkies, ice cream, and milk and process until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve at once.

Makes 2 servings.

haha! Those recipes remind me of this website. Behold, the Gallery of Regrettable Food! http://www.lileks.com/institute/gallery/

Especially the 7-Up milk recipe seen here: http://www.lileks.com/institute/gallery/sevenup2/10.html I dunno. It might be lovely, but my gag reflex would never let me get so far as trying it.

It sounds so disgusting! :sick:

How on earth could Epicurious feature such a thing? It's shocking! :shock: :lol:


On edit: Since they do, evidently, have recipes mixing Twinkies with things like turkey and chicken, I know it may be painful to consider, but who here thinks the Twinkie Sushi actually has fish in it? :sick:

Even without the twinkies Sushi does nothing for me. Seems like a lot of people eat it just to say they do.

Nooo! Sushi is good. Twinkie sushi sounds disgusting, though. I don't even want to think about it!
