I love making cornbread that is quick & easy.

All you need to do is add egg and a little milk.

I jazz it up with a liberal amount of vanilla, and some extra sugar.

This is great with just butter or served with chili.

Or makes a great breakfast with milk and sugar on it. :p

i'll share my version, and you'll never look back.

Make as it says on the box, but add a packet/box of Instant Jello Vanilla pudding. add more milk and cooking time to compensate. you'll never find a better cornbread.

Baked Chicken Wings

Preparation

I buy the 'jumbo wings' - that's the full wing, even w/ the tip

Seasoning
  • lots of chili powder
  • Adobo seasoning
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • (add cayenne if you want extra heat)
  • add anything else you think would be delicious

Rinse each wing under cold water to wash off the chicken juice. Pat dry on paper towels.
Add wings to a bowl for the seasoning
Add a lot of the seasoning and toss to coat - honestly, more seasoning the better
Let sit in the fridge, covered, for x hours (whatever you can afford)

Preparation Cont'd

prepare a large baking sheet w/ foil (easier cleanup)
get out your wired racks (if theyre stackable, that's better)
add 1-2 cups of flour to a gallon Ziploc bag
add 3-4 wings to the bag and shake
shake off excess flour from each wing, place on wire rack
keep 1in space between wings, if possible
once all are placed, chill in fridge for 30-60mins (optional)
preheat oven to 425F (220C)

Cooking

bake wings for 50-55 mins, while lowering temp to 400F (204C), 1/2 way through
**note** do not put wings too close to the bottom of the oven - they'll burn
while they bake - prepare hot sauce

Hot Sauce
  • Franks Red Hot
  • 1TBSP brown sugar
  • couple splashes Worcestershire
  • couple splashes Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1TBSP butter
  • Garlic flakes or fresh garlic

Melt butter in small sauce pan
add garlic and sautee for 30-60 seconds
add brown sugar and stir to melt
add Franks, stir
add vinegar and worchestershire, stir
heat and taste - make sure it's amazing.

When wings are finished, put them into a giant bowl and throw the sauce on top. Toss GENTLY until coated.
Server as fast as possible. the sauce cools quickly.

ENJOY!

I'll repost my Margarita recipe from the other thread and add a food one.

The Best Damn Margarita.... Ever!

Use the 4/3/2 (oz) ratio: 4 parts fresh squeezed lime juice, 3 parts Simple Syrup (sugar water), 2 parts Tequila (no need to use the Top Shelf stuff when making mixed drinks, save that for sipping over ice) (Margaritavile (Jimmy Buffet), Pepe Lopez, Jose Cuervo works fine)
but don't use the bottom shelf stuff.

Simple Syrup: 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, Heat on low-mid heat, stir until sugar is dissolved, Remove from heat, or reduce to make it more concentrated.

Juice the limes (for 4oz juice it takes about 1 1/2-2 limes), add 3oz Simple Syrup and 2oz Tequila and a handful of ice into a Shaker glass. Shake it HARD for about 30 seconds, with a strainer (or not, depends on if you like lime pulp). Pour into a rocks glass with a salted rim, with these, the salt makes a huge difference, helps cut the tartness. Makes 1 serving.

I knew cooking with fresh herbs/spices made a huge difference Vs the bottled stuff, but never really thought enough to apply it to drinks. I had the wife and my mom try them, They also said it was one of the best 'ritas they'd ever had. I even did a blind taste (yes with actual blindfolds, they both knew what I was making and I wanted a honest answer) test using Daily's mix. Handmade won out: had more lime smell/taste, and more of a general balance of salty/sweet/tart.

Yes, it's alot of work, but it's cheaper and tastes FAR better than the mixer they sell for 3x the price. For the lazy people, Rose's Lime Juice would probably work in a pinch though. Like everything in life, a little hard work pays off in the end.

This started out as a "I have some pasta & chicken and some spices" or a clean the pantry & fridge/freezer out and got expanded to what it is now.
Italian Chicken over pasta:

Ingredients:
Rotini Pasta
8-12 Chicken Tenderloins cut into bite size pieces
Italian Dressing
Splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cans of Del Monte Italian Stewed Tomato’s (cut larger pieces into chunks)
2-3 Cloves fresh garlic, minced or pressed
½ of each Yellow and Green Bell Pepper (diced)
A few pinches of Italian seasonings
A dash of sea salt to taste

Prep:
Marinate chicken pieces in enough Italian dressing to coat (One hour at least)
Cook the pasta in boiler.
In a hot skillet, add a splash of EVOO and bell pepper & sauté chicken until seared
Drain chicken, reduce heat to low/mid heat and add both cans of the stewed tomatoes
Add minced/pressed garlic, sea salt, Italian seasoning
Simmer and reduce until done, stirring occasionally, season as needed

Plate:
Place a bed of pasta on plate and smother with chicken/tomato and serve with garlic bread.

Options:
Add fresh grated Parmesan cheese to the top
A drizzle of Italian Dressing
Juice of a lemon/lime wedge
Or all three

Makes 4 Servings (or more depending on serving size) Cooking time approx 20-25mins.

This isn't a very fancy recipe, but it is amazingly quick and simple.
When I met my wife, she didn't eat pasta. She ate this twice and ever since for the last 6 years she gets cravings for it, she absolutely loves it

Simple Bacon and Onion Macaroni

ingredients
  • 1x large Onion, diced
  • 2x cloves garlic, minced
  • 250g bacon, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 250g cheese (chedder or a chedder/mozzarella mix works well)
  • 500g pasta shells, or twists
method
  • With a little oil in a saucepan, sautee the onion and garlic
  • Add bacon and continue cooking until bacon is done
  • Add peas and lower the temp. Cook until peas are hot through again
  • pour mix into a larger saucepan with cooked and fully drained pasta
  • mix through with cheese until melted

Thats it really. Its deceptive in its simplicity as it really is incredibly good to eat.
Sometimes its a side, sometimes its the main. Sometimes its cold for lunch the next day...
For a meal that takes 15min to make and satisfy, its perfect to keep on hand.

No seasoning is needed, maybe a little ground black pepper if you like. The salt in the bacon is enough that you don't need to add more.
My wife thought it fairly plain the first try, good the second. But then after that, like I said, she gets cravings for it now.
