The My Retro Lounge Cookbook

Postby Little Texan » Tue Jan 17, 2017 12:09 am

This is the thread to share some of your favorite recipes, for those that cook. I remember years ago we had one of these threads at the army started by Max (RIP), and it was a great thread. Here's one I'm cooking right now.


Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

2/3 cup Original Bisquick™ mix

1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

1 1/4 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 cut-up whole chicken (3 to 3 1/2 pounds)

Directions

1. Heat oven to 425°F. Melt butter in rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches, in oven.

2. Stir together Bisquick, paprika, salt and pepper; coat chicken. Place skin sides down in dish (dish and butter should be hot).

3. Bake 35 minutes; turn chicken. Bake about 15 minutes longer or until juice is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

Mad Monkey Chai

A simple but very satisfying chai.

5 green cardamon pods
fresh ginger
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3 heaping tablespoons ground Indian black tea (No orange pekoe tea!) Brooke Bond Red Label works fine.
1/4 cup sugar
pot for the stove top
french press

Scrape the skin off the fresh ginger, and cut up in thin slices. Use enough to taste, but generally enough about the size of your thumb.
Combine water, milk, and sugar in a pot and bring to boil, then turn heat down to simmer.
Put the green cardamon pods and cut ginger into the pot. Simmer for a while.
Put the black tea in the pot. Steep for a while, or until the tea has the right color you like.
Pour the contents of the pot into the french press. Press. Then serve the tea.
Instead of a french press, you can use whatever you like to strain out the tea leaves, cardamon, and ginger slices.

But what makes it Mexican? The cumin? Or adding salsa when you eat it?

There are plenty of ingredients that make it Mexican other than the salsa. The lasagna noodles are about the only thing that aren't Mexican, but I like those better than tortillas in the dish.

I remember being in Greece a long time ago, and everything had lemons squeezed in it. Even the soup.
