It was, until once again someone reminded me that we can't keep what we if unless we give it away 8-)

Thanks Muddy! As I was telling Muddy in a PM, I am a college student who is used to home cooked food. I was in dorms for 2 years, and have been in an apartment for 2 years currently. I enjoy to cook, and of course EAT delicious meals. If anyone has any other recipe's for food that can be made stove top/oven/grill let me know. I am compiling a recipe book for myself so when I am in the mood for some good home cooked food it is at my fingertips.

Shrimp & Asparagus Risotto:

A lot of cooks are scared of risotto, for really no reason but misunderstanding.  When it comes down to it, risotto is rice (just better).

In a small saucepan, heat up about three cups of chicken stock to a near boil.

In another pot, this one large enough to hold a lot of rice:  mince four cloves of garlic and dice one white onion.  Saute in 1/8 cup (half stick) of butter, and about an equal amount of olive oil.  After about five minutes, when the garlic is browned and onions tender, add in a cup of short grain rice (preferably arborio rice), and brown the rice for a minute or so.  Pour in a 1/2 cup of white wine and deglaze the pan (deglazing is the act of using a small amount of liquid, brought quickly to a boil, to lift from the bottom of the pan any pieces of goodness that have gotten stuck.  White wine is best used for deglazing, but water works as well).

Now that you have sauteed the garlic and onions, browned the rice, and deglazed the pan, you can start adding in the chicken stock that you have been bringing to a boil in the other pot.  Add the stock in small amounts at a time, stirring the rice continuously while all the liquid cooks in.  Doing this is what gives risotto its great creamy texture.  Once two cups or so of the stock has been cooked in, begin to taste the rice.  You are looking for an "al dente" texture, similar to pasta.  You may need to add more liquid than the three cups, depending on how much liquid evaporates.  A couple minutes before the desired texture is reached, add in a handful of chopped asparagus.

Once the rice is al dente, add in a pound of uncooked, shell off shrimp, and cook until done, about 90 seconds.  Remove from heat, and finish with 1/2 stick of butter and 1/2 cup of parmasean cheese, stirring until melted throughout.

It takes about 45 minutes start to finish, and can be bothersome because you have to stand over it the whole time stirring, but there is no better dish you can cook at home with such simple ingredients.

Check out the chili recipes on this forum.

One other thing - get yourself a crockpot (slow cooker). Easiest way to cook a good meal.

2- 4 cups(1-2bags) of shredded cheddar ( 2 bags if not using mozz)

2-3 eggs

small tub of ricotta cheese

small tub of sour cream

1 cup of milk

cut chicken into small cubes and cook to desired flavor...cook macaroni...melt butter.....

prep ovan to 350

then stur in the sauce and chicken....add the rest of the cheese to the top...throw into the ovan and cook for 30 - 45 min.

Chili

1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground pork, sausage or chorizo

1 medium Spanish onion (yellow onion)

Brown these ingredients, drain grease. Add one can of

beef broth and add 2 packages of Williams Chili Mix. Stir

to coat the meat.

1 large can of peeled tomatoes, whole, sliced or diced

1 whole garlic clove, diced or crushed

1 can Campbell's Beefy Mushroom Soup

4 tbls cilantro

1 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tbls sugar

Salt & pepper to taste

Boil on low for an hour, stirring occasionally

Add 1 can of red beans and 1 can of kidney beans

Simmer for thirty minutes, adding water or broth

if needed. You determine the consistency.

Remove from heat and let it sit, covered, for at least an

hour, but overnight is better.

Reheat on low, stirring occasionally

To serve, I like grated sharp cheddar cheese and sour cream on top,

dill pickles and crackers on the side. For heat, pickled sliced jalapenos

(seeds removed) and Tabasco Sauce. Unless you are cooking for

yourself, don't add the heat to the mix, allow everyone to tweak their

own.

Good luck!

-Kent

Williams Chili Mix? Campbell's Beefy Mushroom Soup?

This is a recipe for "regular guys", not competition.

Secret ingredients are not required.

Oh I guess that Hormel Chili without the beans and Cheez Wiz is any better?
