I WOULD LIKE TO THANK BIRDIE FOR TAKING HER TIME TO SHARE HER RECIPE WITH US

Cod Fish Cakes

Preparation time: 40 minutes.

Here is a delicious way to use up leftover fish or mashed potatoes. I made my first cod fish cakes after catching my first lingcod (which isn't actually cod by the way, but it still worked fine).

1 lb of cod fillets

2 medium-sized russett potatoes

1 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 eggs, lightly beaten grapeseed oil for frying

Boil and mash the potatoes, set them aside. Boil the codfish until it flakes easkly. Drain and flake the fish with a fork. Be sure to remove all bones. Mix the flaked fish, the potatoes and the rest of the ingredients together well by hand. If the mixture is too crumbly, add another egg. If too sticky, add some more bread crumbs. Form the mixture into cakes and fry them on medium high heat in a saute pan with oil.

Makes 12 fish cakes. Serves 4-6.

CINDI'S APPLE PIE TART

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Grease (or spray with Pam) a 9 inch (22 cm) springform pan.

CRUST: In the bowl of your food processor place the flour and sugar. Pulse to blend together. Add butter and pulse until dough just begins to come together. Pat the dough onto the bottom and one inch (2.5 cm) up the sides of the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator while you make the filling.

FILLING: In a food processor process the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and mix well. Blend in the egg and vanilla extract and process until smooth. Remove the crust from the fridge and pour in the filling. Return to refrigerator while you prepare the topping.

TOPPING: Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Toss the sliced apples in the sugar mixture. Spoon the apples evenly over the cream cheese layer and sprinkle with almonds. Place the springform pan on a larger baking sheet to catch the drips. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown (apples are soft when pierced with a fork), and filling is almost set.

    MzBeck2ewe

    This recipe is a cherished family heirloom; for those of you in the south that have had it; you know the extra work/effort is well worth the end product!! Enjoy; also; it's from my maternal grandmother; who cooked on a wood cookstove so I had to trial and error the oven temp LOL (VERY HOT)!!!! Mama only served this dish at special occasions because it does take more effort than regular cornbread...It should come out the consistency of a thick pudding. Reduce heat if its too thick on your second try.

    Southern Spoon Cornbread

    handed down to me from my Grandmother; Elizabeth Lee Peters Metcalfe

    2 cups boiling water

    1 cup sifted corn meal (plain not self rising ok)

    1 tbsp butter

    1 tsp salt

    pinch of baking powder

    1 cup sweet milk

    1 egg - well beaten

    To the boiling water, add cornmeal, butter, salt, baking powder. Whisk or stir fast so that it is smooth. Cook for five minutes on low heat. Take from stove and add milk and egg gradually. Pour in baking dish and bake until golden brown (Guesstimate is 20 - 30 minutes; just keep an eye on it and don't peep at it until after at least 12-15 minutes so it wont 'fall' .....Bake @ 425 degrees. I had better luck placing (trial and error) my dish with the ingredients in it inside another larger pan with a small amount of water in it...bakes more evenly that way.

     

    TURKEY POT PIE

    This one's a good one to get rid of the leftover turkey after holidays and it ROCKS...Makes a ton of food too; I make a double batch (without biscuits of course) and freeze one up when I need a quick meal; then all you have to do is whip up the biscuits to go on top!

    PS: ITS CHEATING IF YOU USE WHOPPP))))))))) BISCUITS OUT THE STORE OK LOL

    5 - 6 cups of chopped up leftover turkey

    2 cans of either cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken (I used chicken one) or you can use one HUGE can of Campbells soups

    1 cup frozen peas (they taste better)

    1 cup chopped carrots

    1 cup cubed tiny potatoes

    1 cup sauteed chopped onions

    pinch of garlic (fresh better)

    salt to taste (I know some of you cant do salt but Ima salt freak and add two tsps)

    dash of pepper

    dump all the above into dutch oven and simmer just enough to get hot while you make up a regular size batch of biscuit dough.... It bakes a bit faster if you have everything hot before you add biscuits...

    Cut out biscuits; usually takes about twelve biscuits

    Place all the filling ingredients you've heated into a lasagne size pan...13 x 9"...then lay biscuits on top of that and bake @ 350 (always lower heat 25 degrees if using glass pans) for half hour or until the biscuits are nice and goldeny brown.

    This feeds Tex so figger a meal for 6 people LMAO

    BISCUIT DOUGH RECIPE I USE

    2 cups plain flour, 2 tsps baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 3/4 cup shortening (crisco), 1 cup sweet milk

    Cut shortening into flour and rest of ingredients with pastry blender or fork...make well in middle of that and add milk; roll out on floured surface and cut em out!!!
