post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am always on the hunt for new recipes and prefer it when someone has tried it and recommends it.

Soooooooo........... Did anyone try anything new yesterday that they would recommend? I tried 2 new recipes, a Vidalia onion dip that was too sweet for my taste, and a French meat stuffing that was a BIG hit!

recipe is here:


Anyone else have any good new recipes?

I tried Paula Deen's Mashed Baked as our potato dish yesterday. It was quite easy to make and my goodness it was SO good!!! I highly recommend it! It has just enough extra flavor to make it different, but not so much that gravy tastes wierd on it.

I second the Epicurus site! I'm always getting recipes from there. Now trying them out on the other hand.....
Oooohhh yummy I made some cinnamon buns yesterday. Mmmm so good. My husband wanted one this morning and was appalled to discover that of the 11 I made last night, only 4 survived.
I tried out a new recipe for battered fish - old style English beer batter. It was so good, really crispy yummy fish 'n' chips.

I tried this yesterday, and it went over very well. It is a copy-cat recipe, that I picked up from another website ( link: http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/cat/524/ ) They were very good, but could use a bit more garlic.

Olive Garden-Style Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe


12 fresh mushrooms
1 (6 oz.) can clams (drained and finely minced)
1/4 cup of clam juice for stuffing
1 green onion, chopped finely
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon melted butter, cooled
1 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon finely grated Romano cheese
2 tablespoons finely grated Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup finely grated Mozzarella cheese, for garnish
1/4 cup melted butter, for topping
freshly chopped parsley, for garnish


Wash and remove stems from mushrooms, pat dry. Save stems for another recipe. In mixing bowl place clams, onion, garlic salt, minced garlic, butter and oregano. Mix through and blend well. Add Italian bread crumbs, egg, clam juice and blend. Stir cheeses in clam stuffing and mix well. Place clam mixture inside mushroom cavity and slightly mound clam mixture.

You should be able to stuff between 8 - 12 mushrooms depending on the size of mushrooms.

Place mushrooms in slightly oiled baking dish. Pour butter over mushrooms. Cover and place in a preheated oven at 350 decrease for about 35 - 40 minutes.

Remove cover and sprinkle freshly grated mozzarella cheese on top and pop back in oven just so the cheese melts slightly, garnish with freshly diced parsley.

I made a really good and simple brocoli and leek soup yesterday at work! It even turned out this time
The recipe goes:

2 leeks
1 1/2lb of brocoli
olive oil
4 cups vegetable or chicken boulion
Salt and pepper to taste

Dab of plain yogurt
Bits of chopped green onion

Wash and chop your leeks into 1 inch sized portions. Put oil in the the pan and saute the leeks until tender. Wash and chop brocoli including stems into 1 inch sized portions and add to pot when leeks are tender. Let brocoli cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until they are soft enough to poke with a knife. Add boulion (I cut the boulion flavouring down in half because I find it too salty, but it's up to you. Just so long as you have 4 cups). Let the whole mixture simmer for about 20 mins. When it's soft, blend it (using a hand blender works best). Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish as you like.

Serves 4

It really is yummy! If you're interested in soups, I'm planning on stealing the butternut squash with roasted garlic recipe from work soon and might be willing to share the goodness.

Happy cookin guys!
