Cooking with Chronos

Post  Ilthaelyn on Tue Mar 10, 2015 5:10 am

Welcome to Cooking with Chronos! After discovering how many of us bake and/or cook the idea of a thread where we could share our favorite recipes was born. So dig into those archives and find your favorite recipes to share with the group. This will definitely be fun!

With Ky's persistent encouragement, I finally decided on a recipe to begin this thread with. We even agreed on a name! Progress rocks! After much consideration, and overthinking, I decided on something I know most of us enjoy. COOKIES! I will be honest, I swiped this from my mom's blog (www.restlesschipotle.com) and tweaked it to suit my own prefferences So without further ado...

(Though the picture is of my own taking)

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Vegetable Shortening
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Cups Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
2. Cream butter, shortening, sugar and brown sugar until the mixture is fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after adding each egg. Mix in vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients; stir into the butter mixture.
4. Carefully stir in the chocolate chips.
5. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheet.
6. Bake 8-10 minutes. Allow the to cool on the cookie sheets for 10 minutes before removing.

I add the salt because I like the extra dimension that it adds to the flavor. I add an extra 1/4 cup of flour because I prefer the texture. I ALSO usually use 1 cup of chocolate chips because I feel the flavor is more balanced. The recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips. Don't get me wrong I like chocolate, but I like the cookie part too! My preferences are factored in to the ingredient list already.

Ok Chronos Peoples! Start sharing your recipes!

Kyux's Egg Mess

Post  Kyux on Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:34 pm

Thank you Thae!

So, this is my contribution: it is a unique recipe that I made myself this year. It has yet to be formally named but one suggestion so far is Hegg Jamion. So feel free to help me out with suggestions for names. It's quick, easy, flexible and pretty healthy.

Ingredients:

1 Onion (pref. red) diced
2 eggs
Ham/bacon to liking chopped into small pieces
Salt
Pepper
Spices (I suggest chili and cumin)
Olive oil

Optional:
1/2 Zucchini sliced
1 Skinless chicken breast chopped into small pieces
Tuna
Sriracha sauce
Anything else you deem worthy

Method:

1. Heat a frying pan with the olive oil to high heat
2. Add chicken if using it, cook until it starts to become golden brown)
3. Add the onion (and zucchini if you're using it) and stir every so often
4. Cook onion until it becomes translucent and soft (and zucchini starts browning)
5. Add meat(s) except chicken, stir every so often for 1-2 minutes
6. Crack eggs into pan, mix around until all is combined. Cook until the egg is ready
7. Serve however you want (on pita, on toast, in a bowl, on boiled potatoes)
8. Enjoy! (Compulsory)

I hope you like it, I do : ) And please feel free to suggest names!

-Ky

So I am kind of a procrastinator... not that any number of my fellow guildies didn't know that already. I just felt that it needed to be restated. One of these recipes I was supposed weeks ago and the other days ago. Forgive me, I am only human after all. Or so I am told.

The blog post with pictures can be found --->Here<---

Faux Caprese Salad:
3 leaves of fresh Sweet Basil

3 leaves of fresh Thai Basil

2 sprigs of fresh Spicy Globe Basil

1 small Tomato

1 small Purple Heirloom Tomato

1/2 c Low Fat Cottage Cheese

1. Chop 2 leaves of sweet and thai basil.
2. Strip the leaves off one sprig of spicy globe basil.
3. Dice 1/2 of the sweet tomato and half of the heirloom tomato.
4. Stir the chopped basil and diced tomatoes into the cottage cheese.
5. Arrange the remaining basil and tomato on top.

Super quick, super easy and absolutely delicious.

And for Recipe Number 2!

The blog post with picture can be found --->Here!!<---

Oatmeal Coconut Bars

Preparation time: About 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
But they will need to set in the refrigerator for about 2 hours or until itís completely chilled. (I left mine overnight)

Ingredients:
1 1/2 C †Extra virgin coconut Oil
2 1/2 C Unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 C Sweetened coconut flakes1 †C Old Fashioned oatmeal
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
1/3 Tsp Course ground sea salt
3 tsp Honey †(or your preferred sugar replacement)
(Optional) Melted dark or semi-sweet chocolate.

Preheat your oven to 350įF

In a medium pan combine the coconut oil, unsweetened coconut flakes, oatmeal, salt and honey. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes and stir occasionally, making sure the dry ingredients are well coated with the oil so it can cook into them.

Take pan off heat and stir in the vanilla.

Pour mixture into an ungreased 9◊11 pan. Use a spoon to spread evenly. Make sure the coconut oil is evenly distributed on the bottom.

On a cookie sheet, spread the sweetened coconut flakes in an even single layer. Bake for about 7 minutes or until the coconut is light golden brown. Stir occasionally so that the coconut is evenly toasted and doesnít burn. †Keep a close eye on it though, once it starts toasting it can burn really fast.

Sprinkle the toasted coconut on top of the bars and let everything cool to room temperature. Place in the refrigerator to chill until the coconut oil is firm.

(optional) Drizzle chocolate on top.

Place in the refrigerator to chill until the coconut oil is firm.
