Irish Potato Pie

It is Pi[e] Day!

But not only that, with Saint Patrick’s Day being on Tuesday, I thought what better pie to make then an Irish pie.

I searched throughout Pinterest, and found this recipe which comes from A Spicy Perspective.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry Thawed or Pie Crust
  • 4 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 7 Slices of Bacon, Chopped (I omitted this)
  • 5 Potatoes-Peeled and Sliced Thin (I used only three)
  • 1 Onion, Peeled and Sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Dill
  • 1/2 Cup of Heavy Cream
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chives

Directions:

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the thawed puff pastry or pie crust in a 8-9 in pan and crimp the edges.
  3. Remove the excess dough and piece it along the rim if needed to make the rim in some places.
  4. Refrigerate until it is ready to fill.
  5. Place butter and bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté until bacon is crispy and toss in the onions.
  6. Follow with potatoes and dill.
  7. Season with 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper.
  8. Gently stir 3-5 mins.
  9. Spoon mixture into crust and drizzle with heavy cream.
  10. Bake on low rack for 35-45 mins-or until the potatoes are fork-tender and crust golden.
  11. Rest for 10 mins and then sprinkle with fresh chives.

Thoughts After Baking:

I omitted the bacon as I don’t like the way that bacon grease smells after cooking. Then after last year’s potato dish didn’t cook all the way through, I decided to use less potatoes this year. And I added all the chives as I didn’t want them to go bad.

This turned out really delicious, although it was missing one thing: cheese! I added a bit later and this made a great slice of pie-a slice that I will be eating on Saint Patrick’s Day too!

Dao’s Egg Rolls

Happy Chinese New Year!

Thoughts Before Cooking:

So I have been bugging my friend Dao for years about teaching me to make eggs rolls. We finally were able to match up our schedules and this is her recipe, just in time for the Lunar New Year!

Dao’s Notes: Here is the recipe (but add to it as you like). Honestly I eye ball everything but I’m trying to break it down so you can make it at home. 

Ingredients:

Egg Roll Filling

  • 1 Cabbage, finely chopped
  • 3 Onions, finely sliced and diced
  • 6 Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 Package of Glass Noodles
  • 1-2 Packages of Egg Roll Wrappers
  • 1/2 Cup of Oyster Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup of Soy Sauce
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 lb of ground turkey (or meat of your choice)

Egg Roll Paste

  • 1-2 Tablespoons of All Purpose Flour
  • Water

Dipping Sauce

  • Cilantro, chopped finely
  • Red Thai Pepper, chopped finely (The more you add the spicier it will be)
  • Peanut Butter
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1-2 Cups of Sweet Chili Spring Roll Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Water

Egg Roll Directions:

  1. Soak the noodles in hot water at least an hour before, so they can soften.
  2. Drain the water and cut the noodles a inch to 2 inches long.
  3. Combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Make the paste by combining the water and flour, but make sure it isn’t too runny.
  5. Take an egg roll wrapper and lay it diagnolly, like a diamond.
  6. Spoon some of the egg roll mixture into the middle.
  7. Fold bottom corner over filling, roll snugly halfway to cover filling.
  8. Fold both sides in, creating like an envelope and roll, sealing edge with paste. It is very similar to rolling a burrito.
  9. Fry the egg rolls in oil, making sure the wok or pot is deep enough so they are completely covered.
  10. Fry until egg rolls are brown and crunchy, lay on paper towl to drain oil.

Sauce:

  1. Heat up 1 cup of water for one minute in the microwave and then add 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter, mix until melted.
  2. Add cilantro, chili peppers, lemon, Sweet Chili Spring Roll Sauce, salt, and pepper.
  3. Mix well.

Enjoy!

King Arthur Fudgy Brownies

Thoughts Before Baking:

So I had originally wanted to post a Christmas mystery, but I just didn’t have very many-I’ll have to step it up next year, so you are all getting a recipe instead.

Christmas is coming and I continued my yearly tradition of baking cookies for certain families as their Christmas gift!

I thought that instead of making three dozen of one cookie, I would do three different cookies. That way I would be sure to have something everyone would love. So of course I did Rice Krispies Cookies, as everyone loves them.

The second cookie I decided on the Crispy, Chewy Matcha Green Tea Cookies

With the third cookie I decided to consult my The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion: The Essential Cookie Cookbook and settled on Fudgy Brownies.

thenannygasp

Yes Brownies are cookies, they are called bar cookies.

From the Cookbook: “Many of us here at King Arthur decided that our perfect brownie should be fudgy but not gooey, and rich enough to satisfy on its own. It should be assertively flavored and able to stand up to hot fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream. Also, it needs to have a crisp top layer-as one of the kids said, “Just like the ones from a box.” The following recipe fills the bill. Chocolate Chips will provide tiny molten pockets of chocolate within the greater brownie landscape. Add them if your desire for fudginess is limitless.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup (1.5 sticks) of Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Cups of Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Walnuts or Pecans
  • 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips

Directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch pan
    3. In a medium microwave safe bowl, or medium saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter.
    4. Add the sugar and stir to combine.
    5. Return mixture to heat, or microwave, briefly until it is hot, but not bubbling-it will become shiny when you stir it. Heating the mixture the second time will dissolve more of the sugar, which give the brownies a shiny top.
    6. Stir in cocoa, salt, baking powder, and vanilla.
    7. Whisk in the eggs, stirring until smooth.
    8. Add the flour, nuts, and chocolate chips-stirring until smooth. 
    9. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
    10. Bake the brownies for 29-32 mins, or until a cake tester/knife is inserted and comes out clean or with only a few amounts of crumb clinging to it.
    11. The edges of the brownies should be set, but the center still soft.
    12. Remove brownies from the oven and cool on rack before cutting and serving.

Thoughts After Baking:

So first of all, I didn’t decorate these, I had 3-5 year olds do it so they don’t look as nice as they would have, if I had done it. They were delicious, and the kids loved them.

How to Make Meatballs With Rice

So Raleys does their $5 Mondays and they had two 1lb containers of ground turkey for $5.

A deal like that, I can’t resist. I bought them and cooked one while putting the other in the freezer. I had forgotten about it, but then was reminded and needed to cook the meat up before it went bad.

I decided to make meatballs as I hadn’t ever made them before-but I was missing breadcrumbs and it was late so I didn’t feel like going out to buy some.

So in the spirit of the 1940s (Tuesday’s post on The Secret Keeper), “Make it do… Or do without”, I searched the internet for a recipe that had a substitute for breadcrumbs.

This recipe comes from Delishably

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 to 2 lbs of Ground Turkey (or Ground Beef)
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons of Uncooked Rice
  • 2 Tablespoons of White Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons of Fresh Parsley or Basil (I prefer basil)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons of Minced Fresh Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon of Paprika
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Cooking

Directions:

  1. In a bowl combine the meat with all the spices.
  2. Add the egg, and mix.
  3. Mix in uncooked rice and flour.
  4. Continue to mix until it is uniformly blended.
  5. Shape into balls.
  6. In a skillet, coated with olive oil, saute the meatballs and allow them to cook until browned.

Thoughts After Cooking:

So I thought this was pretty good, although if I were to make it again I would try using something else as a substitute-the rice made them a little chewy.

But otherwise delicious!

Saucy Spider with Hairy Leg Sticks

So I wanted to make sure you all had a Halloween-y recipe for whatever parties or events you may be having this year. My tia shared this recipe on facebook, and I decided I HAD to make it.

This recipe for how to make the spider comes from Woman’s Day and calls for 2 balls of pizza dough. I decided to make it myself and instead of trying the Sicilian pizza recipe, I got this pizza dough recipe from Bigger Bolder Baking’s 15-Minute Pizza Dough Recipe (No Yeast)

Pizza Dough Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 Cups of Flour
  • 3 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 3/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons of Water
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

Pizza Dough Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F
  2. In a mixing bowl-combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
  4. Combine the water and oil in a separate jug or cup.
  5. Slowly add the water and oil mixture to the flour mixture, holding back a little in case you don’t need it all.
  6. Using a wooden spoon, or your hands, mix until the dough is combined. It should be soft, but not sticky.
  7. Add a splash more water if you dough is dry.

Saucy Spider Ingredients:

  • 2 Balls of Pizza Dough
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp of Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Large Pitted Black Olive
  • 2 Cups of Marinara Sauce

Spider Directions:

  1. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Make the spider by cutting one ball of dough in half.
  3. Shape one half into a 5-inch ball to make the spider body.
  4. Cut a 1 1/2 inch strip from the remaining half and shape into a 2 1/2 inch ball to make the head.
  5. Cut the remaining dough into 8 strips and roll each strip into a 6 inch rope to make the legs.
  6. Arrange the body, legs, and head on one of the prepared baking sheets to resemble a spider, gently pressing all of the pieces of dough together.
  7. Brush the spider with some of the egg.
  8. Sprinkle the legs 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese.
  9. Place 2 of the olive slices on the top of the head for eyes and 2 on the bottom for pincers.
  10. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 mins. (Cover the legs with foil if they brown too quickly).
  11. Meanwhile, make the spider leg sticks. Cut the remaining ball of dough into into 8 pieces.
  12. Roll each piece into a 3/4 inch thick rope.
  13. Cut each rope into various lengths.
  14. Taper one end of each piece and slightly bend the others to resemble legs.
  15. Place on the second baking sheet, brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
  16. Bake until golden brown-15-20 minutes.
  17. Meanwhile, warm marinara sauce.
  18. Using a knife, hollow out the body of the spider and fill with the warm sauce.
  19. Serve with the leg sticks.

The Pizza Dough:

The Spider Before Baking-I Didn’t Have Any Olives:

Spider After Baking:

Spider Body Filled:

Thoughts After Reading:

So the dough was okay, but too salty for me. I don’t think I would make it again. It also only made one ball of dough so I didn’t get any spider legs out of it.

The spider was so cute. I ended up making White Bean and Barley Soup with Tomatoes and Greens and filled my spider with it.

It was easy to make too, and I’m going to try and do it for a future party.

Soo good!

Hillshire Farm Crustless Quiche

 Thoughts Before Cooking:

So I do not like quiches. I don’t like the way the egg tastes when it is baked. It just does not appeal to me.

But since Tuesday’s review was on A Quiche Before Dyinga quiche recipe was needed. So I searched throughout the web and chose this one from Hillshire Farms.

Ingredients:

  • 12 Ounces Hillshire Smoked Sausage
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1.5 Cups of Whipping Cream
  • 1.5 Tsps of Dry Mustard
  • 1/4 Tsp of Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp of Black Pepper
  • 1.5 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 13×9-inch baking dish.
  3. Cut the susage into 1/2 inch cubes, set aside.
  4. Place eggs, cream, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl-whisk until smooth.
  5. Stir in sausage, 1 cup of cheese, and green pepper.
  6. Pour egg mixture into the greased pan.
  7. Bake 40-45 mins or until the eggs are set.
  8. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheese and let stand 5 mins before serving.

Thoughts After Baking:
