A SPACE FOR RECIPES YOU LOVE TO SHARE...

easy recipes with lots of bang for the work are probably best for this crowd, since we spend so darn much time on line.

share away..

I'll be the first.. throw this in the crock pot and you can sit online all day!!   :D

 low carb cheap recipe --- Adobo Chicken
   
Ingredients:  3 pounds meat (thighs)
1/2 cup soy sauce -- Kikkoman
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 small onion -- sliced
3 cloves garlic -- chopped
 
Combine all ingredients in a pot or crock pot and cook. The longer it simmers, the more tender the meat will
be. The recipe is also very forgiving. If you don't like garlic, leave it out. If you want to try it with ginger or hot peppers
or anything else that you fancy, toss it in. Just don't mess with the soy/vinegar ratio. And don't add any water because it makes lots of gravy


Make a cole slaw and there are lots of left overs

Another good cheapy!

Rotisserie/"Deli" Chicken   

Ingredients:

1 whole chicken
tin foil (any "weight")
spray cooking oil
seasoning of your choice (see my note*)


Spray the bottom of the crockpot with olive oil non-stick cooking spray. Next, take pieces of tin foil (aluminum foil) and ball them up, placing them in the bottom of the crockpot. The chicken is going to "sit" on the foil balls. Cover the bottom of the crockpot with tinfoil balls. Spray the chicken with the olive oil spray and season with Lawry's seasoned salt.
Bake on high for 4 hours.

**Notes: The tin foil and the time/temp are "non-negotiables"

I have used butter flavored cooking spray as well as different seasonings and it has tasted great. I have used lemon pepper seasoning and McCormick's brand "Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning."

This does look like one of the whole rotisserie chicken's that the grocery store sells.

This will give ya 4 hours on the computer! in the Diner of course!!

Ok.. here is another quickie.  I work the graveyard shift and by the time I get up around 3pm everyone wants dinner at 5.  Making a dinner after being awake for 2 hours isn't always on the top of my list.  To stretch budgets and for folks that choose not to partake of meat... 

REAL MEN DO EAT QUICHE!!!

MEXICAN QUICHE
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
4 ounce can chopped green chiles
1/2 cup cream
3 eggs
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

Grease a large glass pie plate. Beat the eggs with the cream and seasonings. Put the cheese in the bottom of the pie plate; sprinkle chiles evenly over the cheese. Slowly pour the egg mixture evenly over the cheese. Bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Makes 6 servings
Can be frozen

Spruce up a bag of store bought salad mix  and viola'

This is so quick and easy.  Remember a basic quiche is eggs and cream and some type of cheese.... be inventive  :)

(BTW Jack only 2 carbs per serving)

This bread pudding recipe is made with soy milk. No dairy milk or eggs. I can't tell you how good it is. I don't make it very often because it's gone in no time. It's good warm and cold. I love it for breakfast. Don't over cook it. I omit the nuts and raisins but I'll write the recipe as it is in the book.

BREAD PUDDING

4 Cups cubed day old wheat or white bread.

3 Cups soy milk

3/4 Cup sugar

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon   (I actually use a little more because I love cinnamon)

1 Cup raisins (optional)

1/2 Cup chopped almonds (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Put the bread into a 9-inch square baking pan or a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish lightly oiled. Stir the remaining ingredients together in a seperate bowl and pour over the bread. Stir to mix. bake 30 minutes. Serve warm or cool.

Daphne and Chloe----I love bread pudding! Coupla questions:  what about lightly toasting the bread first?  have you ever served it with real maple syrup? 
I think this would be good as part of a brunch selection.

I'm glad you like the bread pudding recipe. I was afraid people would say ick soy! :)  but it really is good. I lightly pack the bread cubes when I measure (forgot to mention that). Yes I have toasted the bread a little if it's too fresh. You can cube it and put it on a cookie sheet in the oven for a few minutes to save time.

And I will try it with real maple syrup. That sounds great! I never thought of that. Thanks.

I'm hoping to get a good strawberry pie recipe in here since we serve it so often in the Diner...
