post your simplest but delicious recipes here

I've exhausted my little recipe book. Need tips. I cook all kinds of food, don't worry - Chinese, Italian, Western etc. Just keep it simple, 'kay?

U2Bama's Famous Chicken Kabobs

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast strips
1/2 cup Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
1/2 cup steak marinade, worcestershire sauce or soy sauce based, such as Dale's Seasoning or Moore's Marinade found in Birmingham, Alabama, USA
1-2 fresh tomatoes
1 vidalia onion
12 medium-sized pepperoncini peppers (or, "Greek" or banana peppers)
1 small package of whole mushrooms
salt & pepper

Sprinkle salt and pepper generously on the bottom of a medium sized marinating dish, then pour half of the Ranch dressing and steak marinade in the dish. Spread chicken pieces flat on dish. Sprinle salt and pepper on TOP of chicken, then pour remainder of Ranch dressing and steak marinade evenly over chicken. Set in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Spray grill lightly with PAM olive oil. As grill is heating to a low flame, retrieve chicken from refrigerator.

Slice tomatoes and onion into 1-inch cubed slices.

Alternately place chicken, tomato pieces, onion pieces, mushrroms and pepperoncini onto 3 or 4 skewers.

Place skewers on grill for about 10-12 minutes, turning half way through.

Remove from grill and wrap in aluminum foil. Return wrapped package to grill for about 15-20 minutes.

Remove from grill and serve over rice pilaf or with stuffed baked potatoes.

Enjoy.

P.S. You may also substitute beef or pork for the chicken, although the pork may be a problem in Malaysia. Also, some use bland green bell peppers instead of the tastier pepperoncini.

That website rocks! I don't cook much...I am notorious for the times I screwed up spaghetti and one of those Jell-O No Bake desserts. Which meant that it took me 4 hours to do one of those "Quick 'n' Easy" recipes, but I'm sure a normal person could make taco casserole a little faster.

I guess I was referring to Halal customs. My Muslim friend who owns the deli down the street does not serve pork; the ham & cheese pita wrap and the B.L.T. inlcude beef ham & bacon instead of pork.

Toast:
Insert bread into toaster.
Push down plunger.
When toaster pops, remove bread.
Apply butter or jelly if desired.
Eat.


Doesn't get any simpler than that!

There's < 30% Chinese and Indians in Malaysia, so there is pork. In abundance... any veggie dishes?

Funny you should mention recipes today foray. I was celebrating and hour ago.."I made yoghurt, I made yoghurt" my first batch and it worked!!! I was expecting a disaster. My boys are all teenagers now and I have to find cheap ways of feeding them.
I'm lactose intolerant, so yesterday I put half a pawpaw and some soy milk in the blender, delicsh, but couldn't drink it all. Put the remainder in the fridge and 5 hours later accidently made a deliciously textured fruche/mousse kind of creation. You can also freeze a banana, put it in the blender and the result really tastes like ice cream. I miss my dairy products badly sometimes.
I was actually thinking yesterday, how many meals have I cooked in 22 years?...and then decided not to go down that path...luckily I really enjoy preparing fresh ingredients, not real fussed on the eating and definitely HATE washing dishes. But I was very excited about food this a.m. I made yoghurt...cheaply!!!!(now I have to make strawberry sauce to sweeten it..experimental, all good fun)

PS He liked it!!! My grumpiest son is the big yoghurt eater. I was sure he was going to be his usual self and say it tastes like *!@* when he got home from school. He likes it!!Phew. Little pleasures

Sugar cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter (or shortening)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. Cream together sugar and butter, then add egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and beat together. Roll into balls in sugar. Put on cookie sheet. Do not press down. Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes or until lightly brown.

These are fabulous; I've gotten marriage proposals out of these. Some tips: 1. Cream the butter by itself first, until it's light yellow, then add the sugar and continue creaming. 2. Shortening will make the cookies firmer, but not as buttery and delicious. Let's not even talk about "butter flavored" shortening. UGH. 3. If the dough won't hold together in a ball as you roll it, you will have the lightest, most delicious cookies ever.

Enjoy.
