    Default Yummo! Easy Peasy Recipes

    DO YA HAVE ONE!

    MINE ARE STUCK IN MY HEAD!

    GIVE US YOURS-BUT IT HAS TO BE EASY PEASY!
    (hmmmmmmm....... that could be relative.)

    Here is mine - by request.

    Jean’s Maryland Crabby Cakes

    2 cans lump crabmeat
    ¼ cup mayonnaise
    1 Very large egg
    1 heaping tablespoon horseradish sauce
    1 not so heaping tablespoon dark brown mustard
    Envelope of Old Bay crab cake mix
    Peanut Oil
    Your fav breadcrumbs

    Notes on ingredients:
    Make sure you have LUMP crab meat. Not special/deluxe/or any other description. Just LUMP! I get the cans that are in the same area as the tuna. If you purchase the so called fresh stuff in the seafood department - well it’s just got too many shells and has that uric acid smell. Bleh!
    Horseradish sauce - not from a jar of fresh horseradish. You can pick up a few packets from Arby’s if you don’t want to buy a hole container.
    I use stadium mustard.
    Peanut Oil makes a big difference
    I use either Italian Breadcrumbs or Panko style. Whatever I have on hand at the time.
    VERY IMPORTANT: Use mayonnaise - NOT salad dressing.

    Whip together the mayo, horsey sauce, egg and mustard.

    Drain the crab meat. I just open the can, leave the lid on and turn it upside down over the sink and press the lid against the meat. There should be some sort of paper lining the can. Most canned lump meat will have that.

    Stir the Old Bay envelope into the wet mixture.

    Gently fold in the crab meat trying to keep the lump texture.

    Use enough oil in your pan to come up halfway to the crab cake.

    Your mix should not be too dry or too runny. Mine is usually just sloppy.

    Take a very large spoon and scoop up enough for a good sized crab cake. In a bowl have your bread crumbs ready. Drop the crabmeat mixture into the bread crumbs. Very gently spoon some on the top. This can get messy - but I use my hands to gently form a cake. I make BIG ones. Usually will get four out of two cans. You just want to coat the cake lightly.

    Drop it into the hot oil. Brown on one side. Carefully turn it over. I use an egg turner and a spatula to maneuver this. Brown on the other. Drain on paper towel. Serve the way you want it.

    We sometimes will put it on a burger bun with lettuce tomato and onion.

    Any questions-just ask. The above is outta my head. It is not written down anywhere.

    BTW - You can use the crabby cake one to stuff jumbo shrimp. I usually get 16/20 count at the smallest. butterfly them. spoon a bunch on top of the shrimpy. bake until done. I would prob use a 375 oven for just a few mins. until it gets a little tiny browned on the top.

    I really don't use recipes. Only when I bake cakes, pastry, cookies or brownies.

    Almond Shortbread Cookies

    1 ¾ cups flour
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
    rounded ½ teaspoon dry butter substitute (Butter Buds, Molly McButter, etc)
    1 cup sliced almonds, ground coarsely

    Mix these dry ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside. In another bowl cream together
    ½ cup powdered sugar
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1 stick butter, softened

    Mix in
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 teaspoons almond extract

    Beat until fluffy. Add in dry ingredients and continue folding in until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the dough. Chill dough for 15 to 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350F. I usually form the dough with a sturdy measuring tablespoon (or hand roll small balls and flatten). Bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Makes about 45 cookies (depends how much dough gets eaten beforehand).

    To anyone out there reading these. We took these cookies home from our Ravenchase Hunt and my daughter would not part with them. She smacked my hand when I went for one.

    If you ever want homemade bread in a hurry, try this:

    Beer Bread (makes one loaf)

    2-3 cups SELF-RISING flour
    1 12-oz. bottle of beer (any kind--the darker the beer, the more dense the bread)
    2 tablespoons sugar


    Put flour and sugar in a bowl and add beer slowly, stirring well until all dry ingredients are absorbed. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan, or round 1-qt casserole dish. Bake at 350 F for 40-50 minutes, depending on oven. Bread is done when you can tip it out of the pan and tap on the bottom with your finger and hear a hollow thump. Don't overcook it.

    Variations: Add two tablespoons of dry dill to the mix, or a handful of flax seed or wheat germ, or rough-cut oats (not instant). If you want the top to look browner, brush it with melted butter during the last ten minutes of cooking. If you want very crispy crust, brush with ice-water.
    This bread looks nice baked in a 6" flower pot and tied up with a ribbon for gift-giving.

    Additional note: the batter should be very thick and sticky. Not liquidy and "pourable." if it's too thin add more flour a few spoonsful at a time until it reaches a consistency like bran muffin batter. When you put it in a pan to bake, it should not "level out" but remain lumpy. (You may want to spread it out more evenly by hand.)

    About flower pot baking: always use a NEW, washed and air-dried, plain terra-cotta pot. Don't ever use a glazed pot or any other kind--the glazing may not have been done at high enough heat to prevent lead and other toxics from leaking into your food in the oven. Cover the bottom drain hole with a piece of aluminum foil doubled twice or more--if you use only one layer it will bake into your bread and is hard to remove. Set the pot in another pan to bake it, as there might be leakage into your oven.

    Default Bring a plate

    "Bring a plate for supper" means bring a plate of food for sharing. The food is generally finger food, savoury or sweet, such as sandwiches, sausage rolls, cookies, cakes. Supper on a social occasion starting at 8pm would be about 10pm.

    Our favourite for taking on such an occasion is "easy peasy".

    Spread sesameal crackers with cream cheese and top with a thin slice of smoked salmon.

    Very easy to prepare, and there are never any left over.
