  • Any new recipes that were good?

    I made corn based on a recipe I found online

     

    32 ounces of frozen corn

     

    8 ounce cream cheese

     

    1 stick of butter

     

    salt & pepper

     

    Cook corn in water according to package directions. Drain corn, add cream cheese, butter, salt & pepper -- stir until cream cheese and butter is melted.

    I found this on Cooking Light, it is from Cook's Illustrated. Very, very good.

     

    Glazed Sweet Potatoes from TestKitchen45

    3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes -- UNpeeled

    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup honey
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 teaspoons grated orange rind -- bottled is fine (You don't need fresh zest for this recipe--and I wonder if it'd hold up as well upon heating; see Notes.)
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup pineapple juice

    1/4 cup chopped walnuts

    Cook unpeeled sweet potatoes in boiling water to cover 20-25 minutes or
    until fork-tender (use huge stockpot; you need the height, especially if
    you double this for a crowd--and it's as easy to quadruple it as to make
    it as written, so it's great for a huge group).

    As potatoes are cooling off, combine brown sugar and next 7 ingredients
    (all but walnuts) in a saucepan (nonstick is great; heavy-weight is fine).
    Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil;
    boil 1 minute, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
    If you do this too early, you'll have to reheat it in order to pour it--no
    big deal.

    Remove sweet potatoes from hot water with turkey lifters or Orka silicone
    gloves. Let cool to touch (this may take 30 minutes before you can handle
    them comfortably; allow time); peel with carving knife, and cut into
    1/2-inch slices. Arrange slices, slightly overlapping in rows, in a
    lightly greased 12x8x2 baking dish (or whatever size you have: 9x13 or
    whatever--I use a 9x13 plus a 9x9 for doubled [7-pounds-potatoes] recipe).
    Set aside.

    Pour sauce mixture over the sweet potatoes; sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
    Cover with foil, and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight (great for
    Thanksgiving!).

    Remove dish from refrigerator; let stand 30 minutes (this isn't a science;
    you just want some of the chill off). Uncover and bake at 350 for 30
    minutes or until thoroughly heated. (I like to use an instant-read
    thermometer in the center of the casserole dish to check it. Once it's
    hot, the recipe holds extremely well in a warm oven, so it's easy to use
    for company or holidays.)

    This was new to me and really good.

     

    Paula Deen's Corn Casserole

    1 (15 1/4 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained.
    1 (14 3/4 oz) can cream style corn.
    1 (8 oz) pkg. corn muffin mix (Jiffy)
    1 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted.*(I used ½ stick and sautéed a diced onion in it)

    *2 eggs, beaten


    1 to 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    In a bowl, stir together the two cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream and the melted butter. Pour into a greased casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from over and top with cheddar. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes and serve warm.

     

    * I added 2 beaten eggs and a small diced onion. I also added about a cup of sharp cheese to the batter and then spread a good amount of sharp cheese on top for the last 5 minutes of baking.

    I made Paula Deens recipe for cornbread dressing. It was excellent. Only thing I would change is to add a bit more sage. I will definitely make it again for Christmas dinner.

     I made homemade cranberry sauce for the first time and it was wonderful

     

    1 Pound Fresh Cranberries

    1 Cup Water

    1 1/2 Cups Sugar

     1 Fresh Orange, juiced

    1 Cup Raisins

    1 Granny Smith Appled, diced

    1 tsp cinnamon

    1/4 tsp nutmeg

    1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans

     Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Simmer for about 30 minutes or until berries pop and slightly thickened.

    Tree I made almost the same corn recipe.  The recipe I used called for 1 tsp of sugar as well as the ingredients you have listed.  All of the ingredients went into the crockpot and cooked for 2 1/2 hours.  Our son and daughter-in-law really liked it so I sent most of it home with them since I really shouldn't be eating corn anyway.

     I did 2 new variants this year which I liked enough to write down.

    Cranberry Orange Jam (thicker than cranberry sauce)

    4 oz. cranberries
    zest and juice of 1 orange
    1/3 c. sugar
    1 pinch salt

    Cook together until thickened, about 1/2 hour.

     

    Turkey Liver Pate

    2 turkey livers
    1/2 turkey heart
    1/2 t. olive oil
    1 large garlic clove
    1 T. brandy
    salt

    Fry the livers and heart in olive oil until fully cooked, but not dried out.  Mince the garlic.  Mince the livers and heart with the garlic.  Stir in brandy and salt.  Keep in the refrigerator at least overnight before serving.

    So what?  Big deal.

    i made cranberry sauce from scratch this time instead of a can. it was good! and easy. *i'm the only one who ate it, the woosies.

    i also made a sweet potato casserole this time, instead of the candied yams. they were good. a little too sweet for me. i could really taste the brown sugar. everyone else loved them. i think i need to tweak the recipe a little. 

    LF- that liver pate looks yummy. i like liver, in all its forms. LOL

    I told you you'd like that corn! I add the scant teaspoon of sugar to mine, too.

    I made a new sausage dressing recipe that was really good. Tasted like pizza - without the sauce.  I don't have the recipe here in front of me but I toasted up some foccaccia bread (cubed) and threw it in a big bowl. Added in some olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, Italian sausage, chopped green olives w/pimientos, chopped black olives.  And I think that was it.  Topped it off with some parmesan cheese.  Baked it for awhile in a 325 oven.  It was delicious.

    If you like Corn Casseroles and a little kick, this one is great:

    2 cans white Shoepeg corn, drained
    whip together:
    1/4c melted butter
    1 8oz pk cream cheese
    5T Picante
    Blend well and bake at 350°
    for 30 minutes.
