Recipe: Brisket Rub

Newsletter:
Quoted from www.spicebarn.com:
Favorite Brisket Rub
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup ground black pepper
3/4 cup paprika
2 tablespoons each: garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder
2 teaspoons ground red cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container. Use 1/4 cup rub on brisket, wrap in plastic wrap and chill 8 hours. Prepare brisket as desired.



Tip: Store your spices away from moisture. Dampness will cause caking and loss of quality. Store in tightly covered jars and use clean, dry spoons for measuring. If you live in a high humidity area you may experience difficulty with caking.

Bacon Collard Omelet

Begin Father's Day with a special breakfast. Cooking this omelet is really simple. I am including all the little procedures and the reasons for them.

If you don’t need all these directions, skip them. On the other hand, if you have not yet cooked a perfect omelet, these directions will enable you to do so.

Bacon Collard Omelet is big enough to make 2 delicious, rich servings.

Ingredients
4 slices bacon, finely chopped (or the equivalent in lean bacon ends and pieces)
1 cup finely chopped, fresh uncooked tender collards
1 small Roma tomato
¼ cup purple onion
¼ cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup Colby/Jack cheese, grated
4 large eggs
Sprinkle salt substitute
Non-stick cooking spray
Dash red pepper
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Dash paprika
6 slices pickled jalapeños
Parsley

Preparation
·Fry the bacon in the skillet until it is crisp and the fat is rendered.
Add the collards to the bacon and sauté them until they are tender.
·Transfer the bacon and collards to the steamer. (Using a stovetop steamer is a convenient way to remove the grease from the bacon. Place warm water in the saucepan, add the steamer rack, place the mixture inside, and cover with a lid. Heat at low temperature until you are ready for the bacon. The steamer will allow the excessive bacon grease to drip down in the water.)
·Chop the tomato and onion. (Don’t place them with the bacon—they need to be crisp.) In a small bowl, stir them with the cheeses. Save a few pieces of the tomato and a tablespoon of the grated cheese to garnish the omelet.
·In another bowl, whisk the eggs. Sprinkle some salt substitute into the eggs.
·Spray the inside of the skillet thoroughly. Be sure to include the sides.
·Heat the skillet until it is too warm to touch, but not until it smokes and burns.

Recipe: Crawfish Pat

The thought of this scrumptious crawfish dish makes my mouth water!

This Recipe is from the 06 - June 2005 issue of Today in Mississippi
Crawfish Pat
Category: Seafood
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 stick margarine (not butter)
1 can cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup
1 large can low-fat evaporated milk
1 (6-oz.) pkg. low-fat cream cheese
1/4 tsp. liquid crab boil
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cornstarch
2 lbs. crawfish tails, peeled
1 cup colby cheese, shredded
Salt, pepper to taste (optional)
1 pkg. fettucine pasta, cooked


Saute onion and celery in margarine until thoroughly wilted. Add soup, milk, cream cheese, crab boil and garlic powder. Mix cornstarch with a little water and add to mixture. Cook about 10 minutes. Add crawfish and colby cheese. Mix thoroughly. Serve over hot cooked fettucine with french bread and a salad.

Notes: Leftover sauce can be frozen. Shrimp and crab can be used in this recipe. If I use frozen crawfish, I add a little liquid crab boil to the water when defrosting for more zip. Recipe can also be used for a crawfish pie: put in crust, top with second crust and bake at 350 degrees until crust is browned, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Crepe Maker

The Maxim CM5 crepe maker is a superb little appliance. For a dad who likes to cook, it would be an ideal Father's Day gift.

: "


This electric crêpe maker is a bit like a frying pan turned inside out. Instead of a pan shape, it looks a bit like a banjo, and the top is a convex, nonstick cooking surface. Preheat, then dip it directly into the batter, rotate it right side up, and wait until the ready light turns on. Then just flip it back over to drop the cooked crêpe onto a plate and fill with the delicacy of your choice. Each crêpe takes just under a minute to cook, so you can serve as many as your guests can eat without spending the whole meal hovering in the kitchen. A short recipe booklet ranging from pigs in blankets to blintzes is included. --Richard Farr, Amazon.com Review


Product Description
MAXIM CM5 7-1/2" 650-WATTS ELECTRIC CREPE MAKER - WHITE. The perfect accompaniments to your kitchen, when the stove or microwave just isn't enough to get the job done: FEATURES: Ready light signals when to dip and when crepe is done. A perfect crepe every 45 seconds! As easy as 1-2-3. Dip! Cook! Stack! Thermostatic temperature control. 7 1/2" non-stick cooking surface. 16 page illustrated recipe book included. 650 watts.

Recipe: BECHAMEL SAUCE

http://www.flavoredwithlove.com/italiancookery/ItalianCookery40.html:

Here is an old recipe for bechamel sauce, which is simply a basic white sauce. This recipe tells exactly how to make it. Here in Louisiana people call it white roux.

BECHAMEL SAUCE

Take one tablespoon of flour, and one tablespoon of butter. Put them into a saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon until they have become a golden-brown color. Then add, a little at a time, one pint of milk; stir constantly until the sauce is as thick as custard, and is white in color. If it grows too thick, a little more milk may be added; or if it is too thin, a tiny lump of butter rolled in flour will thicken it.

I'll Have What They're Having

I'll Have What They're Having is one of those cookbooks I love to read. It's a cookbook writer's cookbook. Linda Stradley, the author, has a wonderful attitude toward life, reflected in her writing. I highly recommend this book.

From the back cover:

America has a rich history of regional cooking. From Brooklyn bialys to San Francisco cioppino to southern fried chicken, traditional food is as large a part of the local culture as the landscape and the monuments. Some dishes are so famous that they are an essential part of any trip - imagine going to Chicago without sampling deep-dish pizza? Or New Orleans without trying jambalaya? Or Miami without tasting key lime pie? Now you don't have to travel any farther than your own kitchen to enjoy these specialties.

I'll Have What They're Having offers time-tested, tried-and-true recipes for more than 130 hidden gems of regional fare - home cooking at its most creative, the kind of food that you want to bring back from your travels and make again and again. Recipes include helpful tips on appropriate eating etiquette and making each dish with authentic touches that reflect its cultural origins.

In addition, you'll learn about the stories - both humorous and historical - behind these delicious and sometimes off-beat local favorites. Did you know that the proper role of the pinto bean in chili is a 150-year-old argument, one that is known to have led to a riot in an Oklahoma prison and a series of barroom brawls in Texas? Or that Hangtown fry, a mouth-watering, one-skillet meal of eggs, oysters, and bacon was originally sold to gold miners in the 1800s for $6.00 a plate - the equivalent of hundreds of dollars today! Part cookbook, part history lesson, this engaging collection celebrates the flavors and traditions that showcase the best of American cuisine. (8 1/2 x 10 1/4, 256 pages, b&w photos, recipes)

Recipe: Creamed Collards

Driving his Cadillac, our friend Bob came through Ruston from New York and then Florida on his way to California. He did not know whether he liked collard greens. I decided to fix him something extra special--creamed collards. They taste much better than creamed spinach, which I supposed he had eaten in New York.

When I cooked lunch for Bob, he loved the creamed collards. He kept going back for more. The funny part was that he piled green peas on top of the collards on his plate.

It may be weeks before I have a chance to get more books printed.

Go ahead and order one or several books now because I want you to have a chance to get one before I sell out of this batch. You'll love all those wonderful stories about cooking that my family and friends have told me.

Just imagine taking a bite of my son-in-law Mike’s Barbecued Shrimp—the best I’ve ever tasted. Your mouth will water like never before when you experience my friend Paul’s Smoked Wild Duck. Wash down this delicious food with the best lemonade you’ll ever put in your mouth—Grandpa’s Lemonade made by a secret method.

Your father would absolutely love this book.
