_elizadeath_

And in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, and for my big brothers party tomorrow, i made a cuban inspired cupcakes, MOJITOCAKES! Yes, I know, cinco de mayo is mexican, but I'm not even Mexican, so who gives a fuck right?! right! Now that I think about it... I probably should have done a spicy hot mexican chocolate cupcake.. next time!

Peruvian Shrimp Cebiche [09 Feb 2007|03:01pm]

stir_things_up

1 1/2 lb uncooked frozen jumbo shrimp
1 bottle Mexican Pilsner Beer
1 tbsp. ketchup
1/2 tablespoon  Mustard
1/2 cup tomato juice
6 limes
2  Large tomatos
1  yellow onion
4  serrano chiles
Handful cillantro
Handful parsley
Salt
Pepper

Pour beer into medium sauce pan, add shrimp.  Add enough water to cover shrimp in liquid.  Boil shrimp until shells turn pink, around 5 minutes.  The shrimp do not need to be fully cooked, as the lime juice in the cebiche will cook them rest of the way.  Drain and place in refrigerator until cool.
Refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving, then mix with the sauce.
Coarsely chop onions, tomatoes, chiles, cillantro and parsley and place in a large bowl.  Slice limes in half and squeeze juice onto veggies.  Squeeze limes only until juice is out, if you squeeze limes too hard, the oils from the peel will start to seep out and change the flavor of you ceviche.  Cut the lime pulp that is hanging from the peel and add into bowl.  Add tomato juice, mustard and ketchup to bowl and mix well.  Taste mixture and add salt and pepper as needed.  Set bowl aside and remove shrimp from fridge.
Peel and devain shrimp.  Chop shrimp into 1/4" size peices and add into tomato mixture.  Blend well and put in fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
Serve with crumbled fried plantain bannanas (chifles) over the top.

stir_things_up

14 ounce Canned Mexican Condensed Milk
3 cup Whole Milk
½ tsp. Baking Soda
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
¼ cup Water
1 tsp. Vanilla

In a small saucepan, bring the condensed milk, fresh milk and baking soda to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Immediately remove pan from the heat.
Combine brown sugar and water in a heavy 4 to 5 quart saucepan and cook them over low heat, stirring constantly, until well blended. Pour in the milk mixture, add vanilla and stir well. Cook over low heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, keep an eye out for any burning and regulate heat accordingly. The mixture will thicken greatly, turn golden and have amber halos around the top layer as it begins to set. Serve the custard after it cools or refrigerate for a thicker consistency.
This custard is extremely rich, so I do not recommend eating more than 1/4 of a cup.  I think it might be fun to experiment with putting a creme brule burnt sugar crust on the top.

application, schmapplication!

the basics:
name-whysteriastar's cooking show
age-new
location-the internet

the important:
I'm not doing the bands and foods because my real profile is already accepted, this is just for the show.
why you think you should be in this community-Because I was already accepted and now I'm doing a fucking show!
one "secret" or "tip" for us-when making ceviche, don't squeeze your limes or lemons too hard or you'll start releasing the oils from the skin and it will taste different

the aesthetics:
Fuck this, I'm posting a recipe alreadyCollapse )

Hey guys,
I'm going to be filming an international foods cooking show, we could end up doing anywhere in the world on any given show. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions or products I should know about, particularly ones that are special to certain areas of the world that we might do in the states. Any tips are appriciated, thanks!
I'm pretty excited about this, and I'll be posting the video here as soon as we release them on the internet.

Eat Locally! (x-posted) [02 Sep 2006|01:50pm]

_elizadeath_
LocalHarvest.org
My Mom did one of the most awesome things ever for me. She bought me a share in one of the local farms here (CSA- Commnity Supported Agriculture) which in turn gives me locally grown veggies for the season! Some CSA farms ask that you work a couple of hours a season on the farm, which i love! I previously had felt very disconnected with my food (kind of weird i know) and since i live in an apartment until November I can't grow anything to fill my feeling of disconect. Most farmers are organic, some are not. If you do buy organic usually at the grocery store this can decrease your spending by %50-150. I would suggest doing some research on each farm you consider.
For more information and to find a CSA near you:

DIY Airplane Meals? [11 Jul 2006|05:05pm]

_elizadeath_
I'm going to Italy in August and need some food to take with me on the plane!
Besides the regular, PB&j, nuts, dried fruit, water and granola, does anyone have any other suggestions??
Like sandwiches that don't need to be re-fridgerated and can last for 12+ hours, or non-stinky food.
Would chips and home made Salsa be okay for that long?

pina colada punch [18 Jun 2006|11:22am]

garbagedog
Here is a yummy summer recipe, makes enough for a big group:

1 can of cream of coconut (NOT COCONUT MILK. Cream of coconut is sweetened and thicker. A common brand is Coco Lopez. It's usually in the "ethnic foods" area, and bigger/nicer liquor stores usually have it.)

1 can of crushed pineapple, not drained

Liquefy the above in your blender, then add

3-4 c. of pineapple juice (I used a little over half of one of those big cans)

2-3 c. of coconut rum (Malibu, etc.)

I also added a big splash (~1 cup) of Sprite, as I was serving this in a punchbowl and wanted it to be thinner. I took rings of pineapple and froze them on a cookie sheet and floated them in the punch for ice cubes.

This drink can be dangerous as you can't taste the booze at all!

It's Shake and Bake
...and I helped!

I was thinking since this community is mostly dead, we should have a Bake-Off or something. Since we obviously can't taste each others creations, we could have a cake decorating contest. I think it would be cool to have a Rock-N-Roll themed contest, where your baked good (cake, cupcakes, brownie, cookie, etc.) has to illustrate your favorite band/album/song.
I think it would be fun to see what people come up with, plus using icing to draw/write is always a challenge, so I'm sure it would prove to be interesting.
Does anyone else like the idea of that besides me?

Does anyone have a kick ass recipe for Hummus?
I tend to buy the pre-packaged stuff and am never really satisfied, nothing like my favorite restaurants recipe.
Thanks!
