    From Grimnir:

    Mixed greens with Apple-cider viniagrette:

    1 bag of italian or romaine mixed greens; best done with those of the darker variety
    add handfuls each of hemp seeds, sunflower kernels, dried cranberries, almonds
    fresh nectarines and oranges, cut into slivers

    Viniagrette:
    1/2 cup apple-cider vinegar
    1 1/2 cups cold-pressed olive oil
    fruit puree of your choosing (I used blackberries, blueberries, banana, mandarin oranges, apple, and mango.
    if you don't have a processor, a store-bought fruit juice will suffice) - eyeball to near the top of your chosen container
    add nutmeg, cardamom, and/or cinnamon, adjust to taste.
    [1 teaspoon hemp protein powder]
    shake well.




    Orange-cinnamon quinoa (cous-cous alternative):
    bring 3 cups orange juice (slightly diluted with water) to boil, then add 1 1/2 cups of quinoa
    Return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
    Add in cinnamon and toasted almonds + dried cranberries

    organic hemp seeds, quinoa, and much more can be bought by the pound at nutsonline.com; quite cheap too

    From Deborah K:

    Dump Cake

    1 box of yellow cake mix
    1 can of pinapple chunks
    1 can of cherry pie filling
    1 bag of chopped walnuts
    1 stick of butter

    Grease 11x9 pyrex dish
    dump in cherry pie filling
    dump in pineapple chunks
    dump in cake mix - dry - right out of the box - evenly
    lay thin pads of butter all over cake
    sprinkle on walnuts
    bake at 350 for approx one hour

    From Kotin (made this one -- it's delicious):

    Jewish Apple Cake


    Ingredients:

    * 6 Granny Smith Apples, peeled & thinly sliced
    * 2 large Teaspoons of cinnamon
    * 5-6 Tablespoons granulated sugar or to taste
    * 3 Cups all purpose flour
    * 2 1/4 Cups sugar, half granulated, half dark brown
    * 3 Teaspoons baking powder
    * 1/2 Teaspoons salt
    * 4 Eggs
    * 1 Cup vegetable oil
    * 2 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 1/3 Cup freshly squeezed orange juice

    Oil and flour a tube pan - not a fluted one - or angel food cake pan. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    In a medium bowl, mix the apples, cinnamon, and sugar.

    In a large bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth.

    Scoop half the batter into the prepared pan can cover with half the apple mixture. Scoop a second layer of batter over the apples and top with remaining apple mixture.

    Bake for about 1 3/4 hours. The crust should be crunchy. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes and remove to wire rack to finish cooling.



    MATZO BALL SOUP


    4-6 lb. Chicken
    1 lg. onion
    2 carrots, cut in pieces
    3 stalks celery, cut in pieces
    3 qts. water
    1 tbsp. chicken bouillon

    In a large stock pot, cover Chicken with water, add above ingredients and boil until very tender. Allow chicken to cool in the liquid. Remove chicken and reserve for some other future use. Strain remaining broth and discard the cooked vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cooked matzo balls and thoroughly heat them or drop uncooked matzo balls into broth following directions on the matzo ball recipe.

    MATZO BALLS:

    1 tbsp. chicken fat or oil
    1 tbsp. chopped parsley
    1 c. boiling water
    Salt & pepper to taste
    2 eggs, separated
    1 c. matzo meal
    1 lg. celery stalk, chopped
    1 clove garlic, chopped
    1 sm. onion, chopped

    Chop seasonings very fine, then fry in oil. When clear, add cup of boiling water; then cool a few minutes. Add matzo meal, well beaten egg yolks, then fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Form into small balls and drop into boiling chicken soup or you can drop them into boiling salted water. Cover pot and simmer for approximately 30 minutes.

    From Give.Me.Liberty:

    Awesome Dip Stuff

    -Package of cream cheese.
    -Shredded cheese (Mozzarella, Cheddar, mixed, whatever).
    -Hormel Chili (w/ beans or w/o them, whatever)

    Get a big microwavable dish. Spread the cream cheese on the bottom, followed by the chili, and then sprinkle the cheese - microwave for 3 1/2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

    From RonPaulHawaii:

    Laulau
    Prep time: less than 30 minutes
    Cooking time: 4 hours!
    Special equipment: a steamer large enough to easily accomodate a dozen laulau

    • about 50 lu`au leaves
    • 24 to 30 ti leaves
    • 3 lbs. pork shoulder or butt. Don't trim any fat!
    • 1.5 lbs. salted butterfish
    • 2 T Hawaiian salt

    Notes on the ingredients:

    • Fresh spinach may be substituted for lu`au leaves, but reduce the cooking time to 90 minutes if you do. The flavor of spinach is similar enough, but not identical to lu`au.
    • Banana leaves or even corn husks may be substituted for ti leaves.
    • Salted (not smoked) salmon or cod may be used in place of salted butterfish. If all else fails, use fresh butterfish, salmon or cod, but add 1/3 t. extra Hawaiian salt per laulau.
    • Kosher salt may be used in place of Hawaiian salt
    • On the one hand, please feel free to substitute as needed. On the other hand, it is well worth a little extra effort to stick as close to the traditional preparation as is feasible. If you substitute everything, is it still laulau?

    First, start with all your prep work. Wash the ti and lu`au leaves. Prepare your ti leaves, then set them aside. Remove the center stem and fibrous veins from each lu`au leaf. If you have tender, young lu`au, you may be fine leaving the veins intact. Optionally, dice and reserve the lu`au stems to use in the laulau.
    Cut the pork into 12 pieces and rub with salt. Cut the fish into 12 pieces. Start heating a large steamer with water in the bottom. At this point, your prep work is done. Easy so far, eh?
    Stack four to five lu`au leaves on a flat surface, with leaf tips pointing in different directions. Place a piece of pork in the center of the leaf stack, and then a slice of fish on top. If you've decided to use the reserved lu`au stems, add a tablespoon of diced stems. Fold the lu`au leaf to enclose the bundle, much like you would enclose a burrito or wrap.
    You now need to choose a wrapping method, package style or Ho`okupu style. Wrap each laulau bundle in the style of your choosing, then place them in the steamer, stacking if necessary. Make sure to leave spaces between the laulau so that the steam can reach everywhere! Steam for four hours.
    I like to present the laulau still wrapped on a large platter and allow the guests to open their own bundles, discarding the outer ti leaves and eating everything else. It's messier at the table to do it this way, but when that first wave of lu`au smell rises from a newly opened laulau, the excitement on people's faces is completely worth it.

    From Grimnir:

    Roasted red pepper-cilantro hempseed hummus

    a protein packed flavorgasm I created ten minutes ago while stoned out of my mind

    preheat oven to 450 degrees F
    stuff a hewed red bell pepper with finely chopped fresh garlic and cilantro
    drizzle with cayenne pepper, curry powder, and extra virgin olive oil mixture (also doubles as an excellent salad dressing if blended with an avocado)
    roast for about 30 minutes, covered in tin foil

    in the meantime:
    grind almonds and hempseeds in a coffee grinder until somewhat coarse

    when roasting is finished, pulse in a food processor along with almond-hemp mixture and a 16oz can of garbanzo beans

    keep additional hemp, garbanzo, and almond on hand in case of unwanted moisture; adjust with spices to taste and desired viscosity



    I recommend serving in unleavened hemp, flax, or multigrain bread along with wild rice, mixed greens, and fresh avocado. Serve alongside a glass of raw vanilla almond milk, steamed together with rooibos tea

    From LittleLightShining:

    LLS' Famous Chocolate Pie


    3 Cups milk (whole or lowfat, I use whole)
    4 Tablespoons cornstarch
    1 egg yolk
    1 whole egg
    ½ Cup plus 2 Tablespoons sugar
    4 Tablespoons cocoa powder (Dutch-processed is preferred, but use what you can get)
    8 oz chocolate chips (whatever your favorite is. I use Ghirardelli semi or bittersweet)
    2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
    whipped cream optional
    premade graham cracker pie crust

    In a medium bowl combine ½ Cup milk with cornstarch and whisk well. Add the yolk, egg, sugar and cocoa. Whisk well.

    In a large, heavy saucepan heat the remaining milk (2 ½ Cups) over med-high heat until it begins to boil. Pour half of the hot milk into the bowl with the cocoa mixture, stirring constantly. Pour this back into the saucepan and whisk constantly. Lower heat to med-low and whisk constantly for 5-7 minutes until pudding thickens. The pudding needs to get very thick.

    Remove the pan from heat and add the chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. For best texture pour the pudding through a metal sieve into the pie shell. (You can omit the sieve step and it will still be delicious.)

    This recipe makes one pie and a little extra to put into ramekins or mugs. Cover the surface completely with plastic wrap to avoid the skin unless you, like George Costanza, thoroughly enjoy pudding skins. In that case just cover with the plastic that came on the pie shell (inverted, obviously) and cool in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.


    From LiberteeBell:

    Ruby's (that's my mom) salad that everyone loves:

    Romaine Lettuce

    Cucumbers

    Tomatoes

    ***Lawry's Garlic Salt, coarse ground with parsley (has a bright green top)

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Balsamic Vinegar


    Cut everything up and put it in a large bowl. Sprinkle liberally with Lawry's Garlic Salt (this is the key ingredient, no other brand will do). Shake the bowl a bit. Add EVOO and balsamic vinegar to taste. I don't measure anything but as a start, I'd guess about 1/3 cup oil and 25 shakes of vinegar. Toss gently but thoroughly. Enjoy!

    I often add a variety of other salad greens or raw vegetables such as brocolli, shreaded carrots, and colorful bell peppers. I also frequently use other vinegars for a different taste. It's really good with red wine vinegar, raspberry balsamic or just plain ol' apple cider vinegar. It's, of course, 1000 times better with home-grown vegetables.

    This is my favorite dessert ever! I have it on my birthdays instead of cake.

    Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

    1 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup cocoa
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup chopped pecans, divided (I needed more than this for the dipping part)
    1 tablespoon sugar (more of this, too)
    1 (9 ounce) package chewy caramels in milk chocolate (I used rollo candies for this)

    Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, beating well.

    Combine flour, cocoa, and soda; add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in vanilla and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Cover cookie dough and refrigerate 1 hour.

    Combine remaining 1/2 cup pecans and 1 tablespoon sugar; set aside. Gently press 1 tablespoon cookie dough around each candy, forming a ball. Dip one side of cookie in pecan mixture. Place, pecan side up, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375° for 8 minutes. (Cookies will look soft.). Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool. (I had to let them cool longer than a minute on the sheets - I use insulated cookie sheets and I let them stay on there for a while because the caramel is so hot that it falls out the bottom of the cookie if you put them onto the wire racks too soon.) Yield: 4 dozen.

    An oldie but goodie:

    Recipe for "Dr. Paul's American Pie"


    Ingredients:

    1 tbsp Free Speech
    1 cup of Federal Fiscal Responsibility
    1 entire box of "Bring The Boys Back Home" brand Troop Redeployment
    a dash of Secure Borders
    2 legs of an unregulated, free-ranging Internet
    a pinch of Habeas Corpus
    10 measures of Bill of Rights
    and 1 big, heaping cup of Constitution


    Instructions:

    Preheat country by voting for Ron Paul in the Republican primaries.

    Take a "big 'ol mess" of Income Taxes, separate the personal tax from the corporate tax and discard the personal. (This only works if you remembered to put in the entire box of "Bring The Boys Back Home." - Don't leave any extra laying around anywhere.) Always follow Founding Father's instructions carefully, and read their warning label: "Avoid entangling alliances, allow peaceful commerce with all."

    Combine the ingredients in a big melting pot, reducing any extra government waste & pork fat as you go, and mix throughly with a little extra personal research and wisdom. Whatever you do, don't let the T.V. distract you while cooking!

    Finally, add a dash of hope and prayer, to taste.

    If you need more help or instructions preparing this, just google "Ron Paul" on the Internet, and you'll find lots of useful information.

    Simmer patiently. Yes, it does take a while to prepare, but it is worth the wait... Dr. Paul's American Pie recipe is Mmmmm-Mmmm, Good! (And it is good FOR you, too.)

    This dish is traditionally enjoyed with a nice warm cup of Liber-Tea.

    Serves 300 Million... With plenty for everyone to get their fair slice of the pie for a change!

    3 cups sugar

    dash of salt

    2 teaspoons vanilla

    6 large eggs

    Place pan in a cold oven and set at 275°. Bake for 1 ½ hours or until tester inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan.


    Millie's Chili

    2 – 3 lbs ground beef
    2 large or 3 medium onions, chopped
    Bacon grease (2 tablespoons or so)
    1 small or ½ large bell pepper, chopped
    1 rib celery, chopped
    1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    1 14.5 can diced tomatoes
    16 oz beef broth
    ½ cup to ¾ cup white wine
    ¼ cup to ½ cup strong black coffee
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon Tabasco (less/more to taste)
    The spice blend – in no particular order:

    Chili powder
    Mexican Hot Chili powder
    Oregano
    Cumin
    Garlic
    Cayenne
    Black pepper
    Salt
    Basil
    Paprika
    Coriander

    Cook ground beef in skillet, crumble and drain, reserving liquid/fat.

    Secret number one: Heat bacon grease in large pot, I use 6 qt enamel coated cast iron for this. Add 2 tablespoons of the liquid/fat from the beef. Add onions. Cook until onions start to brown and there is some yummy brownings on the bottom of your pot. When that point is reached, pour in half the beef broth. Stir gently, dissolve all the yummy brownings into the broth.

    Add the chopped pepper and celery. Add the tomatoes.

    Secret number two: Add white wine (tomatoes have flavor compounds that are only soluble in alcohol, and the wine releases that yumminess).

    Add the coffee, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in the spice mix. Add beef. Add remaining beef broth to get consistency right. Stir, bring to gentle boil, turn down heat and let it cook for an hour or three, stirring every now and then.
    Why can't everybody else leave everybody else alone?

    I serve it with coconut rice (rice cooked in half coconut milk and half water, once it is done I stir in toasted coconut and toasted slivered almonds.)

    REALLY good stuff.



    Had to add this one, too - another of my favorites from that site:

    I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Oh, and when you use turmeric, be aware that it DOES stain things yellow!

    My lab "Maybe" killed one of our new-to-the-farm laying hens - that my wife just picked up from the coop!! ---however...GOOD NEWS..... like Dale Carnegie says, "When fate hands you a lemon, make lemonade". In this case I made Chicken enchiladas!! ...After scalding, plucking, and gutting of course.

    I got this recipe from ALLrecipes.com. Except I added a half can(small) of tomato paste, black pepper, 1/2 onion (chopped) and a big dash of cumin. Also it needed 10 medium tortillas instead of 6 large.

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)

    * 1 tablespoon butter
    * 1/2 cup chopped green onions
    * 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
    * 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    * 1/2 cup sour cream
    * 1 1/2 cups cubed chicken breast meat (I used 1 whole fresh butchered, boiled, and shredded laying hen)
    * 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
    * 6 (12 inch) flour tortillas
    * 1/4 cup milk


    DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking dish.
    2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and saute the green onion until tender (about 3 to 4 minutes). Add the garlic powder, then stir in the green chiles, cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. Mix well. Reserve 3/4 of this sauce and set aside. To the remaining 1/4 of the sauce in the saucepan, add the chicken and 1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese. Stir together.
    3. Fill each flour tortilla with the chicken mixture and roll up. Place seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
    4. In a small bowl combine the reserved 3/4 of the sauce with the milk. Spoon this mixture over the rolled tortillas and top with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

    It turned out really delicious.. Try it you'll like it! Yumm Yumm.

    I'm about to make this, so ...

    Coconut Poke Cake

    1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
    1 (14 ounce) can cream of coconut (NOT coconut milk - this stuff is in the liquor section)
    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
    1 (8 ounce) package flaked coconut

    Prepare and bake white cake mix according to package directions. Remove cake from oven. While still hot, using a utility fork, poke holes all over the top of the cake.

    Mix cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk together. Pour over the top of the still hot cake. Let cake cool completely then frost with the whipped topping and top with the flaked coconut. Keep cake refrigerated.

    BBQ chicken salad

    2 poached skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, chopped
    3 stalks celery, chopped
    1 large red bell pepper, diced
    1/2 red onion, diced
    1 (8.75 ounce) can sweet corn, drained
    1/4 cup barbeque sauce
    2 tablespoons mayonnaise

    Mix it all together, oh goodness, very yummy!

    I diced everything up fine except the corn. I put the corn into a clean kitchen towel and squeezed the excess liquid out of it. I tossed in some black olives and some roasted garlic cloves and diced that up with the other veggies. I also used more mayo and bbq sauce, too - I don't like dry chicken salads.

    Here's an easy one we discovered when we were trying to increase our yttrium intake:

    Organic cabbage
    onions and/or garlic
    pastured pork sausage
    red pepper
    pine nuts

    Start by browning the sausage crumbles on medium heat.
    Gently saute cabbage and onions in the melted pork fat (we supplement with some of our own Raw milk butter) just until it is no longer crispy, but not until it is soggy.
    Season with salt, red pepper and pine nuts (or shredded almonds)

    It is important that the cabbage is organic because you want adequate sugars in it in order to caramelize.
    The key to this one is simplicity. You can experiment with other ingredients, but it is best with just a handful of flavors.
    It is virtually a complete meal by itself, ready in around ten minutes.
