I don't cook full blown but i'll make lil things.  I usually don't cook for Thanksgiving period.  Once you do folks start to have "cooking more regularly" expectations.  That's why folks don't know that I might make a pudding.   I ain't tryna have people expect a pudding come Thanksgiving if I don't feel like making it.

I'm glad you made this. I was going to make one but kept forgetting.

Oan:I am a terrible cook...seriously, I'm really bad. Anyway, I need a recipe for collard greens. I prefer a recipe with pork as opposed to turkey.


Posted By: iBetYouhNvNika
Date Posted: Nov 06 2013 at 12:37pm
^^ heres what I do ( I don't measure things bare with me)

After washing thoroughly washing the greens I cut them up & warm up a pot. Add about 2 tablespoons of oil. I sautee about 2/3 garlic cloves, & half an onion. I add smoked neckbones. After the garlic & onions brown a bit I add my greens( they're wet be careful) i sautee them for a few minutes I then add half a cup o f vinegar( acv works great too) & a cup of water, dry mustard powders and cayanne pepper. Cover it for about 45mins to an hour checking every 20 mins. Adding water & more seasoning as necessary.I add salt & pepper ( or lawrys) when its almost done.

I ordered a country ham from a farm in Tennessee, Neusom's

Hoping it's a hit

I'm making a lobster/shrimp mac and cheese, a combo of Patti labeled and divas can cook and my own spin

I was thinking of a turducken but I might just save that for Christmas

My fruits are soaking in liquor, but other than that nothing else is set

My husband wanted a "real" ham and Iberian ham is too rich for my blood

I went with the half aged ham from here

http://www.newsomscountryham.com/agkencounham.html

and got the Facebook special (a cooked one) and a whole ham from here

http://www.fatherscountryhams.com/Facebook-Monthly-Special-Thanksgiving-Feast/products/71/
http://www.fatherscountryhams.com/Fathers-Uncooked-Whole-Country-Ham-13-to-14-lbs/productinfo/CH13-14/

Not all for Thanksgiving ... one will be for Christmas and the other just to have ... it's a gamble

I'll tell you how it tastes, take some pics

true, true, true Diane ... not everybody hand good wid cake ... people could be humoring me but most tell me omg that's what fruitcake should taste like

I'd rather use molasses or burn the sugar than use bottle browning it has a funny taste and can shame your cake

Diane & Ricky waving Big smile.  The reason why some people Jamaican Rum Cake is bad, is because they are not measuring properly.  Too much fruits is not good.  Remember years ago we used to burn brown sugar, to achieve the dark colour.  Now it is more convenient because of Browning, which some people use too much of it.  A little goes a long way.

I adhere to the traditional recipe, I only use currants, raisins and prunes and soak in wine.  My fruits are already soaking for Christmas.  The reason why some people cake is tough; is because they are not using the correct ratio of flour to baking powder, and not using enough eggs...

I have a large family so we are all meeting at "Big Ma's House". 
I'm doing deserts this years so I'm making Two large carmel cakes, one berry cobbler, one peach cobble and about 7 sweet potato pies. I'm making huge cobblers, I'm using those large aluminum turkey pans for the cobblers, I hope I have some leftovers to take home.

All home made, no box cakes or can potatoes but I will use frozen peaches and berries.

Posted By: PurplePhase
Date Posted: Nov 17 2013 at 11:11pm
Ricky, I used to use Paula Deen's recipe (below). It's delicious. Now I do the same but add a few of my own touches (extra cinnamon, more syrup, more peaches, ... shoot let's just say I don't measure LOL)

 http://www.cookingwithsugar.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Fresh-Peach-Cobbler-%E2%80%93-A-Summertime-Favorite-BEAUTY-e1312814872863.jpg
Ingredients

* 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
* 2 cups sugar, divided
* 1/2 cup water
* 8 tablespoons butter
* 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
* 1 1/2 cups milk
* Ground cinnamon, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

I always thought of cobblers as being just like pies except  with cobblers, the crust is mixed in with the filling rather than just top/bottom crust. I LOVE crust so I prefer cobblers. lol

Ricky, Betty salad was created by the late Betty Timko, for her restaurants in Toledo, Perrysburg, Defiance.  I increase the ingredients for the amount of people to serve.  I assemble the salad in a large glass salad bowl.

Betty Salad

For the bottom layer:

2 cups mixed greens (head lettuce, romaine,  etc.)

1/2 cup bean sprouts, drained

1 hard-cooked egg, diced

1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon

For the top layer:

1 cup mixed greens

1/2 cup spinach

1 hard-cooked egg, diced

1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon

1/2 cup bean sprouts

1/2 cup Betty's Salad Dressing

Cook's note: There are other versions of this salad, but this is the original recipe.

Arrange bottom layer. Top with next layer of mixed greens, spinach, diced egg, crumbled bacon, and
bean sprouts. Serve with dressing on side or sprinkle dressing on top.

Yield: 1 large serving


Betty Salad Dressing

1 cup salad oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt or 1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
1/3 cup catsup
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 small-to-medium onion

Mix in blender. Yield 8 servings

I make mine similar to this , I don't know exact measurements, nor do I often use them I usually use more vanilla & spices.


3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup regular sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fine salt

Pinch ground cloves

I combine all dry then add to wet mix until smooth and name for about 45 mins to an hour at 350.

^^ heres what I do ( I don't measure things bare with me)

After washing thoroughly washing the greens I cut them up & warm up a pot. Add about 2 tablespoons of oil. I sautee about 2/3 garlic cloves, & half an onion. I add smoked neckbones. After the garlic & onions brown a bit I add my greens( they're wet be careful) i sautee them for a few minutes I then add half a cup o f vinegar( acv works great too) & a cup of water, dry mustard powders and cayanne pepper. Cover it for about 45mins to an hour checking every 20 mins. Adding water & more seasoning as necessary.I add salt & pepper ( or lawrys) when its almost done.

Thank you.
