Oh my, too bad my mum doesn't know English. She'd be delighted to post in such a topic!  :lol3: Maybe I can get some recipes out of her and post them,
but I don't promise anything - she's very gelous towards her recipes  ¬¬

Thanks Tequila!

Hi there,

apparently these recipes are so incredibly secret that noone dares to post one. :ninja: If your mummies, aunts and grannies give you a hard time about their secret recipes, perhaps you can offer them to post the recipes in the Inner Circle - for you grannies that means to show them to a few friends from faraway only, so that noone else can see them. :)

Typically I improvise in the kitchen, but I'm sure I can write down a recipe or two. Just give me some time, please.

Cheers!

Tell grannies and mommies not to worry, because nobody will be able to cook exactly the same food as hers, even with the recipe! And in other countries the same things taste differently.

I'll post one of my not so secret ones this very afternoon - but now I have to leave.  :bye:

My first recipe is called "stratified cauliflower" and it's a vegetarian dish. (I'm not a vegetarian but I eat few meat, I don't like it very much.) It's for four persons, and you will need:

a big cauliflower
3-4 dl sour cream (I don't know if exists in other countries but you can use white sauce as well)
bread crumbs
one egg
a little cheese
margarine
salt and pepper

...yes, I think that's all.

First take the cauliflower into its pieces (I think the pieces are called "curds", but we call them "roses"), then cook them in salty water.

While they are cooling down a little, put the egg in the sour cream (if you use white sauce you don't need the egg), then salt and pepper as much as you like.

Put a little margarine all over a heatproof dish (I don't have an enough big one, so I use a simple saucepan), and put the first "floor" of cauliflower in the dish. If they are not enough salty, it's the last chance to put a little salt on them - I usually forget this... Then put a little of bread crumbs over this, and then a part of the sauce you use. Then build the second and the third floors in the same way.

To finish it, put cheese on the top of everything, and little pieces of margarine.

Then...
PREHEAT THE OVEN!  :afaid:
...and bake it for a little time, it's ready when the cheese starts changing colour to brownish.

You can eat it separated, or as a garnish too.

Does it anything to do with cats?  ¬¬

Btw... Lucy, cauliflower is one of the best vegetables ever (according to my taste, of course)  :w00t_jump:

And... I didn't know the name in English was so similar to Spanish or Catalan name ("coliflor" in both cases)  :lol3:

I'm glad you like it  :)

I didn't know the word, I was checking the dictionary  :blush:
Actually, Hungarian "karfiol" is similar too.

In Romanian it's conopida, so is a little tiny bit similar... and oooh yes, I love it! Especially when my mum makes something alike Lucy's recipe. Man, it's great.

Thanks Tequila!

This site might come in handy to convert measures:  http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/cooking


Here's an easy apple dessert recipe I like to make:   Apple Crumble

Preheat (haha)  oven to 375 degrees.  (190 C in Euro.)

Ingredients:

4 cups of apples, sliced
1/2 cup of butter  (1 stick)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour

Blend the flour, sugar and butter with a pastry blender to form a crumbly mass.  (you can use your fingers instead of a pastry blender)  Arrange apple slices in a shallow baking dish.  Cover the apples with the crumbly mixture.  Bake at 375 until crust starts to brown.  About 45-55 minutes.  Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Hi there,

here's the first recipe from me...

Something general: I like to improvise, as I mentioned, and I like to cook with seasonal products. Also I like to cook vegetarian, i.e. cat-free, but as I like to eat lots of protein as well I usually use cheese or legumes in my veggie meals.

So here we go... Markus' Autumnal Lense Pan

(for 2 servings)

400 g pumpkin meat (Either peeled normal pumpkin or Hokkaido. I prefer the latter because it's tastier and needn't be peeled)
160 g red lenses
2 medium-sized apples of some rather sour variety
40 g ginger
2 large shallots (medium-sized normal onions if not available)
320 ml vegetable stock
2 tablespoonfuls of oil
salt and pepper
some lemon juice

Cut the pumpkin meat to cubes; peel the ginger and cut it into match-sized sticks. Boil up the pumpkin, the ginger and the lenses in the vegetable stock and and let them simmer on small heat for about ten minutes until the lenses are soft and the pumpkin is still al dente. Put the pot aside.

In the meantime peel the apples and remove the core, cut them to cubes. Peel the shallots and cut them to slices.

Stir-fry the shallots in the oil until they become glassy. Add the apple pieces and stir-fry for a short while. Fold in the pumpkin and lenses, season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice.

Serve on its own, with noodles or fresh bread.

Enjoy and cheers!

Markus

Haha Lucy!   It looks like you did a really good job with it.  Did you like it?  It's very simple to make...  that's what's good about this recipe.
