NEW GROUP

NEW GROUP

Everybody loves good cooking.  However, not everybody can do good cooking, at least not without a recipe at hand.  Several of us are exploring the idea of a cooking group for the purpose of making favorite recipes available, and of having some fun.

A former NT member used to have a food group that was originally set up to explore professional level food and drink.  After his departure, some of us adapted the group to include everyone's favorite recipes.  Unfortunately, the group was deleted by mistake and our archive of recipes with it.  Some of those recipes were from members who no longer come here and, unfortunately, some were from members who have since died.  Obviously, we can't get those recipes back, but I'd make a large wager that we can accumulate others that are just as good.

I have consulted with Raven and Kathleen about putting the group up and this blog is the method we're using to get ideas about the best form for the group.  Anyone else who has ideas to share about structure and format is more than welcome to come in and post them.  Right now, a completely open forum (automatic group join) that can be read by anyone seems to be a good starting point.  Below is an outline of how the previous group was set up.  It too seems to be a good starting point.  If you're not sure about how something works, just ask and I'll explain it as much as possible.

GROUP NAME--NT COOKING AND RECIPES ???

ARTICLE NAME

eg. TTGA’s COOKBOOK

FIRST PRIMARY ARTICLE COMMENT

*

*

FIRST RECIPE

*

*

SECONDARY COMMENTS-PEOPLE TALKING OR ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT RECIPE.

___________________________________________________________

SECOND PRIMARY ARTICLE COMMENT

SECOND RECIPE

*

*

SAME AS ABOVE

NOTE

Under this system, the only person who should make primary comments under an article is the author of the article. This allows for a coherent list of the author's recipes. Other comments or questions would then be made under each recipe in which the commenter is interested. That makes things a bit simpler and easier for people to follow and makes it easier for comments or questions, particularly questions, to be related to a particular recipe.

UPDATE:  The new group, The Newstalker Cookbook, is now up and ready go. Please make all new comments in the new group.

AS THE NEW GROUP IS NOW LIVE AND READY TO GO, THIS BLOG WILL NOW BE LOCKED. PLEASE POST ALL NEW COMMENTS AND OUR RECIPES TO THE NEW GROUP FOR ALL TO ENJOY.

Thank you TTGA for doing the preliminary work to get the new group set up. In order to make the new articles easier to find once they have gone out of sight I will set up an Article Index so that the articles will always be readily available.

What those who wish to post their recipe articles will need to do is give their article a Tag, such as by cuisine type (e.g. Chinese, Cajun, etc.), by their recipe name, or other means in order to locate their recipes. This will make it easier for others to find their choice of recipies. 

I am truly looking forward to sharing and learning. I am looking forward to others joining the new group.

I will jump the gun and give you one I have been feasting on the past few weeks.

Garden fresh cucumber and plain old canned black olive salad.

Clean and slice cumber as needed. 

Sprinkle this very tasty vinegar I found, Pinot Grigio from Lucini. Little pricey but tasty.

Let in sit for a few minutes.

I found a 3 pack of avocado oil based salad dressings from Primal Kitchen. One Greek, one Balsamic Vinaigrette and one Italian.  Haven't tried the Italian yet, but the others are delicious. Add as desired.

Let sit for a few more minutes.

Scoop the olives out from a can with a fork to reduce the amount of the salty juice they are packed in.

Have a mini serving, then let sit for a couple hours at room temperature.

Very tasty.

rice pudding my dad used to make.

I have my Maternal Grandmothers' 1944 Edition of the Watkins cookbook. I use it quite a bit, as it is simple and uses everyday ingredients.

I have a few Cherokee recipes as well.

1.2.18  GregTx  replied to  dave-2693993 @1.2.2    4 months ago

I make something very similar to that, except instead of cucumber and olives, I use cucumber, onion and tomatoes with a sprinkle of oregano and kosher salt then refrigerate.

 
 
 
Raven Wing
1.2.19  Raven Wing  replied to  GregTx @1.2.18    4 months ago

I like that kind of salad as well, but, as I am allergic to oregano I use thyme instead. I grow my own herbs and use some fresh, and dry some. That way I have fresh herbs for my recipes. However, some herbs just don't taste as good dried as they do fresh, at least according to my palate, so I try not to dry that many.

What we will need all those who wish to post their recipes to do is put them in an article format, give the article a name, give the article a Tag name so that they can be added properly to the group Index, which will make it easier for others to find them.

So true, but still food related. By the way, the sweet stuff isn't that great.  I like BBQ sauce that bites back.  Even more contentious (and definitely allowed) is the proper alcoholic drink to go with the BBQ.  Obviously, the correct answer is Jack Daniels.  OK all you Jim Beam guys out there, we'll have that war later.  For all of the beer guys, unless you make your own, don't bother with the war.  You've already lost.jrSmiley_51_smiley_image.gif

Thank you TTGA, this will give everyone the opportunity to post their family recipes. It will be nice to see what kind of recipes everyone grew up with.  It would be nice to have it as a cookbook and in sections like most are set up. Example... beverages, appetizers and so on.

I hope it will be a great success. 

 
 
 
Raven Wing
2.1  Raven Wing  replied to  Kathleen @2    4 months ago

Good idea Kathleen. We can do that with a Recipe Index, if the posters will Tag their recipe articles with that kind of designation. The articles in each designation will have a name and link to the respective recipe article. 

Such as:

Recipe Type            Link                               Name of recipe

    Appetizers          (Link to recipe)             Stuffed mushrooms

This will make it much easier for others to find.

2.1.1  Kathleen  replied to  Raven Wing @2.1    4 months ago

There we go... : )

I was thinking that recipes from members, parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles could be great. Something we all make on the holidays too. Maybe a section for home remedies for helping you keep food fresh and tips.

 
 
 
Raven Wing
2.1.2  Raven Wing  replied to  Kathleen @2.1.1    4 months ago
This can be a good thing

Those recipe types can be designated in the title of the recipe or article, such as 'Grandma's Mince Meat pie.", etc. Which would get a Tag name of Pies and fall under the Pies recipe type list in the Index.

 
 
 
Raven Wing
2.1.3  Raven Wing  replied to  Raven Wing @2.1.2    4 months ago

OK...for those who may not have an idea of what I am talking about in the way of the Index, here is a sample so that you can see how the recipe articles will be posted to the index.

This is so that those who will be posting your recipes will know what we need to have for your article name and Tag name. The tag names listed are merely a sample of some that may be posted but not all that can be used. 

Article names are just samples of how the recipe articles can be be named.

The Link is where the link to the recipe article will be posted. You can click on the Link for the article you choose and it will take you directly to that recipe article. 

This is also for those who will be looking up recipes that they want to check out. If you have any questions let me know.

Raven, I like the concept that you put out.  I'm pretty sure that it will work out much better than what I originally envisioned.  Checking with Perrie now to see about getting the basic structure up.

Indeed it can. We have a good many Members here from various ethnic backgrounds and locations where they have learned to cook accordingly. Others have a wide variety of recipe types and cuisines they can share.

And....we can learn new recipes for things that we might never have heard of to try in our own kitchens.

I agree. Cooking is a universal activity for most people no matter where they live. So for those who really like to cook, or those who just want to add something new to their food regimens, they can have place they can go to find those they wish to try. And add their own recipies.

5.1.1  GregTx  replied to  Raven Wing @5.1    4 months ago

Yeah sometimes you have to make what you can with what's on hand. The problem I have when experimenting is that it's a taste as it goes kinda thing and I don't always remember the amount of ingredients I've used, at which point it winds up turning into a scientific experiment to recreate.😀

 
 
 
Raven Wing
5.1.2  Raven Wing  replied to  GregTx @5.1.1    4 months ago
I don't always remember the amount of ingredients I've used,

Same here. I do a lot of cooking by taste. Trouble with that is when I wanted to make it again I could not remember all that I put in it or how much. And if others would ask for a recipe for a dish I made I could not really give them a proper recipe, and some would think I was just being stingy with my recipes.

But, over the years I learned when experimenting I would make a temp recipe of what and how much I put in so that if it turned out to be edible I would know what I did right and create a proper recipe for myself, and to be able to share with others. 

 
 
 
Raven Wing
5.1.3  Raven Wing  replied to  GregTx @5.1.1    4 months ago

Indeed. I was a single Mother of two. My ex skipped out of state and paid no child support and I had to the sole bread winner. There were times when there was little money for groceries after the bills were paid so I had to make do with what I could afford. I remember using Spam in some of the dishes I made, trying to be creative so as not to get burned out on it. I made type of casserole using slices of Spam, cubed potatoes and bread triangles. It was one of the kids favorite. Fried Spam and eggs with Fry Bread was another.

Later on when I could afford more I bought mostly what was on sale, and then used what was on hand to make up meals that were healthy and the kids would like. So experimenting was a main-stay of my cooking for a good many years. (grin)

The new group is in the process of being put together and the recipes will be added once it is up and running. If you have some recipes you would like to share make a list of them to add to the group once it is active, which should be soon.

We first wanted to see if there was any interest in such a group, and as we now have a good start the group is on the way.

You can post your recipe here if you like and I can add it to the group when it is ready. Just be sure to give the recipe a name, and what Tag name it will have so it can be added to our group Index.

I do all the cooking in my home. I find it relaxing and intellectually challenging

I love latin dishes. Asian dishes and of course texas smoked meats on post oak.

My kids are hippies and do not eat processed foods so it's time consuming but I manage to plate fresh whole food meals.

To me latin dishes are the most complex if prepared traditionally without powders but actual fresh ingredients.

I'd love to strengthen some areas of my cooking so I am excited to join

Sorry guys.  I just pulled that one off the free downloaded pictures section on Google.  It just said "cooking" to me.  My wife does, however, make stuffed green peppers.  I'll try to get her to write down the recipe so I can post it.  One thing; any spices she mentions, double the amounts.  She hates spicy food.

Raven and I are working out the structure of the group.  Hoping to have it up and running within the week.

Same here sandy. I like my green peppers to be a bit crisp. So I make the filling first then put it into the uncooked green pepper shells and add a bit of topping. Then just let the topping melt and by then the peppers are med-done and still rather crisp. If they are too done, I just empty the filling out and forget the peppers. 

My Grandmother used to par-boil her shells first, but, by the time they baked in the oven they were almost liquid.

I'd have to ask her, but I'm pretty sure her recipe calls for blanching the peppers first, and yeah, they end up mush.  Maybe if I tried it without blanching them...

I do the same as you - I eat the stuffing, and leave the peppers.

Apple wood mostly because my neighbor cut down a tree in their backyard I do use hickory sometimes.

Never heard of using apple wood for grilling. It must have a very unique flavor and aroma. Sounds good!

All fruit trees are great. I did some salmon and pork a while back with cherry,  was great. I've moved almost exclusively to fruit woods and for the most part stay away from mesquite, hickory and pecan as they tend to burn very hot. Fruit woods burn cooler and I find them easier to manage for an 8 hour smoke.

My mom makes great stuffed cabbage. I don't like cabbage but the filling is delicious!

I just harvested sumac [spice] so I have been looking for a couple of good recipes to use it in.

I do not know if any would care for my cooking style, but I will be happy to pilfer the recipes of others. I grow weary of my bachelor food stuffs :)

Excellent idea for a group.
