Do any of you @Global Moderators or @Gladiators need help to cook while we self isolate? Need something else to do besides stare at your plants?

We have some good cooks here that can help out.

Ms. MOG roasted some tomatoes, garlic, pinch of fresh rosemary and onion with a little olive oil as the base sauce for our lasagna tonight. Every thing else was right out of a package. so assembling the lasagna was quick and easy. This one simple step made it so homemade good!

I do similar, When I make some of my dishes. One thing I’ll do, is split Roma tomatoes, and lightly coat the wet side with basil, and salt.
I’ll have to write out or copy my recipe the next time my wife lets me make it. She doesn’t let me cook a lot, Because the last time she did, We ate an entire 9x13 cake pan full of ...I forget the name now. Basically a thick, chunky tomato sauce made from tomato, mushroom, onion, bell pepper, basil, oregano, sage, and a little thyme that fills a pan around chicken breasts.

...if you can get to the ocean, and you know how to prep them, Shark meat is delicious. It’s like a fish steak with the texture of a pork chop.

Quick and easy stir-fry for dinner.

_DSC2889.JPG


It takes just about the same amount of time to cook the frozen chicken pieces as it does to cut up the vegetables. I use avocado oil with a dash of toasted sesame seed oil, . When the chicken is browned remove from the pan add a bit more oil and cook the vegetables (whatever you got!) down a bit add the meat back in add some Kikkoman Stir Fry Sauce (don't be too heavy with this sauce) and STIR baby STIR.

I had my carbs in cookies today so no fried noodles! They are so easy - just pop the noodle package in the micro for 1 minute and dump them in a pan of hot oil of your choice (peanut oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil) fry a few minutes on each side to the crispness you like.

I was trying to think of a vegetable that I have not stir-fried - the only one I could think of was cactus - Nopales. Not that I wouldn't I just don't have cactus around often.

Oh, boy! i finally found this thread. ! Here's the brownie recipe I posted for the festivus, to start out with since its already on my PC. I'll start posting some things on here, now that I know where it is. I remember @Mañ'O'Green asking me to post this on a cooking thread when i first posted it, but I could not find it.
You don't HAVE TO use ganja butter for this. I've made about a dozen batches since the Festivus, and none of them had cannabis in them. My son loves them. The secret is in the brown sugar. But if you do not have the brown sugar, or butter, you can substitute easily. Oil works in place of the butter - you will get a slightly more cake-like brownie, so pull it out a couple of minutes early if you want it gooey. If you don't have brown sugar, regular sugar for the entire thing will work as well - it just wont have that added richness at the back. it will still be a good brownie. The baking chocolate can be left out entirely. If necessary, you can also reduce sugar to as little as 2/3 cup - it will be more dark-chocolatey. This should help conserve ingredients. I have done each of these things to the recipe on occasion (once doing ALL the substitutions at once, so it works!)

EVERYONE NEEDS A LITTLE CHOCOLATE -its a mood booster.
I just made these last night, minus the frosting - butter is getting scarce, so i used oil - no ganja this time
Instruction 3 for the brownies can be simplified if you are not using ganja butter. Just melt it in a pan, instead of double-boiling.

I'll start posting other lockdown recipes on here as I make them, for others who may not have any ideas during the lockdown. I've got quite a few gems tucked away.

My latest round of IBS testing has revealed I have become gluten intolerant. I knew something had changed and now I can fix it. I have not eaten gluten or almonds (showed bad on the test) in two weeks now and I seem better. Time will tell.

Breakfast today: Long Black Mocha Java Espresso, chicken maple sausage, fried zuccini and tomatoes with half of a "Honey" mango. The Honey mango sometimes called Champagne is our favorite and have just come into season.

Ever have an empty pantry but a table full of hungry people? or perhaps need to make a small amount of meat stretch? Sheperd's Pie is a wonderful solution to that! I made an awesome one the other day - super simple, pantry food based, so anyone can make it. Originally it was made with minced lamb, and fresh vegetables, but not everyone has access to all that right now. This version is made with just 1lb of meat, and a couple of cans. It lasted 3 people 2 days of dinner.
This can be made in any deep type of oven-ready dish. I used a large cast-iron skillet for mine. Even a pie tin from one of those frozen pies will work, too, if thats all you have :)

:Ingredients:
1 lb. Ground meat (I used beef, but any meat will do - turkey, chicken, sausage - whatever)
2-3 cans of any veggie you like (carrots, peas, and potatoes are popular)
1 can cooking soup, or one pouch gravy mix (your choice 4 flavor)
about 3-4 cup worth instant mashed potatoes (depending on how thick you want your top. remember, the sauce will sometimes bubble up )
shredded cheese (optional)
salt, pepper, seasonings of choice
(I used oregano, fresh onion slivers (about 1/8 c just for flavor) and thyme)

Heat oven to 375 F
First of all, you want to cook your meat beforehand. The veggies are already cooked from the canning process, so you dont want to add raw meat to that. Brown the meat well in a skillet, adding a little bit of salt, and pepper to the meat if you like. This would also be a good time to season the meat with any seasonings you may want to. I (if youre using a cast-iron in the oven, cooking the meat in that pan is perfectly fine).
If you are using instant potatoes, now's the time to boil water, and prepare them as the directions say.
If using real potatoes, cut them into little pieces (they cook faster) after peeling if you dont like the skin, and toss them in a pot of boiling water, for about 10 min, or until a fork goes through like butter. drain potatoes smash them, with a couple of Tablespoons of milk and one of butter to make creamy. Set aside for later.

Now comes the easy part(skillet on M heat to warm sauce)
Drain the fat off the meat, and set aside. Make gravy packet/open cooking soup (unwatered down!) and pour into skillet, to get the craklins from the meat off the bottom for added flavor, while it warms, open up your couple of cans of veggies, drain them, and pour them into the pan w/the gravy.
Once this is stirred in, put the meat back into it, and if you are not using a cast iron at this point, pout the mess into the baking dish.
Top this with your mashed potatoes, make sure you get them all the way to the edge, like a top pie crust (hence the name)
Cover this with your cheese of choice, and if you like, something like fresh onions, or another topping that would go with your sauce flavor of choice.
You want to leave one or two spots just slightly away from the edge of the dish, because the sauce will bubble as it heats, and if the gas cant escape.... its fun time for the oven cleaner. It only has to heat through, since everything is cooked. Once the cheese is bubbly, and all melty burnt goodness, its ready to take out. This can also be made in a toaster oven for a one-person meal.

This is such a versatile meal, its perfect for a situation such as this.
Let me know if you have any questions. Sorry no pics for this one. I didnt know about this thread when i cooked it. I'll have pics from now on.

HOMEMADE PANCAKE MIX
this is another versatile mix, that you can put just about ANYTHING into, and have it come out tasty.
It's really simple. If you dont have butter, oil or margarine will work. If you dont have eggs, applesauce if a good substitute. Just reduce milk by 1/4 cup, for the added moisture. About the same amount of applesauce as you would get in liquid egg. so from just under, to just over 1/4 cup. Just plop an egg into a measure cup the frst time you make, and scramble it up. that is about the amount of applesauce you want to use.


1 1/2 cups flour (all purpose, bleached or unbleached is all the same. Dont use cake flour )
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (NOT baking soda. very different uses.they will not substitute)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 cup milk (if using canned, evaporated milk, mix 1 cup milk with 1/4 cup water,

sift these together ALL dry ingredients and sit aside. Melt butter, and add to flour mixture. crack egg into milk, scramble together, and pout on top of butter. Mix all of this together, only JUST until all ingredients are wet. Overmixing will cause flat, rubbery pancakes because all the bubbles from the baking powder will pop. You will see some SMALL lumps. Break up any large lumps with as little stirring as possible.

ANY MIX INS SHOULD BE MIXED WITH DRY MIX BEFORE ADDING LIQUID

For example, I usually make cinnamon swirl raisin. I will add 1/2-1/3 cup raisins to the dry mix, plus 1 tsp cinnamon. Then once it is all mixed together, I will shake more cinnamon out until it covers the top of the batter in the bowl. As I scoop out each pancake, the dry cinnamon on top comes off in big swirls, and it makes the pancakes come out like swirl bread from peppridge farm.
If you use canned fruit, reduce milk by up to 1/4 cup to compensate for added moisture ( I would add 1 cup milk to the mix at first, with the fruit AT THE SAME TIME. If it looks a little thick, add milk a bit at time, until it has normal pancake consistency. )
This mix is just slightly thicker than store bought mix. It makes DELICIOUS pancakes. From 9-18 pancakes, depending on size. I got 18 out of this much mix, made small enough to fit on my spatula. They never make it to cooling off. Also good as PB&J bread substitute, I found out this morning :D

As always, if you have any questions., just msg me.
