Been awhile!!!

Allot has happened since I last posted here I did not even realize it has been over a year! Oh course I've still been cooking  just not trying allot of new or different things. But yesterday I fulfilled a request from the Hubby and made a Maple Bacon Bourbon Pecan Pie Recipe from the Whiskey Disk Blog.  It was a hit!




Maple Bacon Bourbon Pecan Pie

Ingredients
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1½ cups pecans
  • 2 shots bourbon (I used Jim Beam Black)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pie crust
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry the bacon, then chop into small pieces and set aside. Cook the pecans and maple syrup in remaining bacon grease for about three minutes, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat.
In a bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, corn syrup and bourbon. Stir in the pecan-maple syrup mix and bacon pieces. Pour this mixture into a pie crust. Bake until the crust is golden, about one hour.

Green Tomato Raspberry Jam

So I had this tomato plant that was just going nuts growing all over the ground so yesterday morning I went out to stake it and tie it up. While doing that it lost allot of green tomatoes, I hated the ideal of just toss them so I put um a huge bowl and washed them up. Then I goggled things to make with green tomatoes. So today I made Green Tomato Raspberry Jam. I wasn't so sure about this when i got the ideal to try it, OK that said ... on several websites it said you could mince the green tomatoes up or put them in the food processor. I don't have a food processor so I minced them up. Started that out and  well it was not looking promising so I got out my blender and  used the puree setting and started a second batch. First batch turned into candied green tomatoes second batch turned out amazing!!  Well it hasn't cooled yet but warm it is so good! I could see myself making allot of this and trying different flavor's!

2 cups green tomatoes
2 cups white sugar
1 package raspberry gelatin (3oz)



 Combine tomatoes and sugar in a large saucepan and bring 
to a boil over  medium heat. 
Stir and cook  20 minutes. Add the gelatin, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes.

 Spoon into jars or, pour into freezer containers 

and refrigerate or freeze.












First batch- Didn't break down stayed chunky 




Personal note:
Just tried to sneak Charlie some of the new jam he didn't fall for it ... he like's these mini pancakes with blackberry jam. I made him six and then I stacked um well he must of been on to me because he opened each stack before he ate them. He looked at me and said "Your not gonna get me with that one" and "I'm not gonna fall for that trick"

Easy Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Sorry forgot to take a picture..... But this was quick,  easy and yummy!!!




Ingredients 

1 1/2 lbs ground round beef
1 onion chopped
1-2 cups vegetables - I used Fresh  chopped carrots,  green beans, celery, and canned black beans
1 1/2 - 2 lbs potatoes (3 good sized)
8 tablespoons butter 
1/2 cup beef broth
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt, pepper, other seasonings of choice (I used garlic)


    Peel and quarter potatoes, boil in salted water until tender. While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 Tablespoons butter in large frying pan.
    Sauté onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins). If you are adding vegetables, add them according to cooking time. Put any carrots in with the onions. Add corn or peas either at the end of the cooking of the onions, or after the meat has initially cooked.
    Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Add salt and pepper. Add worcesterchire sauce. Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.
     Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.
    Place beef and onions in baking dish. Distribute mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.
    Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 minutes). Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown. I cooked it in my toaster over and it took about 20 mins
