Another veto for the Neeley's. I found the guy pretty okay but Mrs. Neeley was annoying to me. I was looking for the remote control to change the channel when I got interested in the cole slaw she was making. I make a pretty good cole slaw but I tried the Neeley's recipe and it was great!

Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw
Recipe courtesy The Neelys

  • 2 pounds green cabbage
  • 4 carrots
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Cut cabbage in quarters and remove core. Peel carrots and onion and cut into pieces that would fit through the feed tube of a food processor. Fit food processor with the large-holed grater attachment and push cabbage, carrots, and onions through feed tube to grate. In a large bowl, toss vegetables together.

    In another medium bowl, prepare the coleslaw dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, mustard, cider vinegar, sugar, and cayenne. Toss dressing with the cabbage mixture, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

    AnnT's amazing bread pudding

    posted by: spacific on 01.08.2008 at 07:48 pm in Cooking Forum

    For anyone wanting to have the best ever bread pudding...
    This is it. Thank you Ann T. I served it for a party over the holidays. There were so many raves and proclamations, even from those that stated they weren't a bread pudding fan. I used half cream, half milk and on the low end of the sugar range, and for the bread, I was too lazy to cut off the crusts, just tore the pieces in cube size.

    Bread And Butter Pudding With Caramel Sauce

    Home Cookin Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault's Table

    ===========================================
    5 or 6 slices of bread
    1/2 cup butter
    1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar
    5 eggs
    2 cups cream (Or milk)
    vanilla
    pinch of salt
    Caramel Sauce
    1 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup cream
    pinch of salt
    2 teaspoons vanilla

    NOTE: If you prefer the pudding to have more custard, then use less bread so that all of the custard is not absorbed into the bread when baked.

    Cut crusts from bread and spread each slice with butter. (Bread slices can be left whole, or cut into halves, quarters or cubes. Place bread butterd side up in a oven proof dish. (may use any shape dish, or glass loaf pan, cutting bread to fit) Beat the sugar and eggs together and then add the cream, vanilla and
    salt.

    Pour over bread and allow the bread to absorb. (make be refrigerated at this point and baked later) sprinkle with some white sugar and place dish into a pan of hot water
    and bake in a 350 oven for 45 to 1 hour, or until pudding is set and golden.

    To make caramel sauce,
    bring butter, sugars, cream and salt to a boil and then simmer for 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.

    RE: Recipe: Key Lime Pie (Follow-Up #2)

    posted by: teresava on 08.07.2007 at 10:33 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

    I have a really easy recipe that I LOVE...

    1 9" graham cracker pie shell
    1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
    3 egg yolks (whites not used)
    1/2 cup Key West Lime Juice (we use Nellie & Joe's)

    Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie shell and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving top with whipped cream and lime slices.

    I've also used 6 mini pie shells and bake about the same time.

    3 tomatoes, chopped
    1 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 cup chopped green onion
    2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
    2 (11 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained


    Prepare corn bread according to package directions. Cool, crumble, and set aside.

    Place bacon in a large deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

    Whisk together the dressing mix, sour cream, and mayonnaise.

    Crumble half the corn bread in the bottom of a large serving dish. Top with half the beans. Layer the beans with half of the tomatoes, green bell pepper, and green onions. Sprinkle with half the cheese, corn, bacon, and the salad dressing mixture. Repeat the layers. Cover, and chill at least 2 hours before serving

    Here are my adjusted recipies from Annie's original.
    These are for fresh eating...

    what better thing to do while making salsa.

    2 cups tomatoes, peeled, chopped and drained
    1 cup tomatillos boiled , cored, chopped
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped green pepper
    3 chopped hot peppers
    4 cloves chopped garlic
    tsp cumin
    tsp pepper
    dash salt
    2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 tbsp Lemon Juice

    Chop up fine, mix refrigerate overnite, drain excess liquid. Eat.

    This is not a canning recipe

    The wife likes hers smooth...

    Makes about 1Qt.
    2 cups tomatoes, peeled, chopped and drained
    1 cup tomatillos boiled , cored, chopped
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped green pepper
    4 cloves chopped garlic
    tsp cumin
    tsp pepper
    dash salt
    2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
    2 tsp sugar
    1 tbsp Lime Juice
    Throw each ingredient into food processor, transfer to large bowl, add spices, mix well. Transfer to pot, boil down to desired consistency, refrigerate overnight. Eat.

    This is not a canning recipe

    * the major difference between the canning and fresh eating recipies above are that the tomuto sauce and tomato paste have been removed, and added tomatillos.
