Re: George's Recipe Corner

Flaxseed meal would hold that meatloaf together very nicely. I think I'll try out your recipe and throw some flax in there. Buckwheat (not a grain) would work as well.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

It seems that a couple of people have had some problems with the buckwheat recipes. The solution is room-temp eggs. Don't ever use eggs that are cold for baking recipe, as they just clump, and will not accept the ingredients they are mixing with well at all (a solution will hold more if it warm, rather then cold, it holds true for syrups and brines as well). I often will run my eggs under warm water for 20-30 seconds before I crack them to ensure they are room temp by the time I crack them.

Also and update to the Blueberry Pancakes - I now use 2 whole eggs rather then 4 egg whites, and I've been throwing in some cinnamon as well as protein powder. What a blast!

Re: George's Recipe Corner

I apologize as I've been extremely busy working some issues at work (go figure, working at work).

I hope this weekend to try out 3 recipes and get them up Saturday night!

Re: George's Recipe Corner

Curryish Cornish Hens - serves 1

1 cornish hen
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp paprika

Heat oven to 500, 550 if you can get it, with cast iron skillet or grill and foil wrapped brick inside.

Defrost cornish game hen, cut out back bone, lay flat. Salt inside and out

In a small saucepan, heat oil on medium-high until it shimmers.
Add cumin, fennel, coriander and paprika and heat until you hear popping.
Remove from heat, allow to cool.
Blend until pureed.

Lovingly massage cornish hen with puree.
Pull out oven rack with cast iron pan/grill, place neatly tucked cornish hen, skin side down in pan, and top with brick. Stuff back in the oven.
Allow to cook 10 minutes, then flip, topping with brick again.
Allow to cook 10 minutes more.

The salt and oil type and amounts are variable depending on taste, of course.

If you eat the skin and all the oil you will get these numbers:
Calories 524
Calories from Fat 409
Total Fat 45.5g
Saturated Fat 6.6g
Cholesterol 120mg
Sodium 2402mg
Total Carbohydrates 2.1g

Kristin I love Alton Brown! I make omellettes just like him - that episode is one of the most amazing!

You can You Tube almost every one of his Good Eats episodes, they are filled with a ton of good cost saving and good cooking tip information.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

Ha. I ran through a dozen eggs practicing my omlette flip when I saw that episode!

I love Alton, he's broadened my range of cooking skills immensely. Plus if I ever need to explain why flour thickens a sauce, I know exactly what props to use.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

I kid you not I use this recipe and instead of potatoes I usually go with coarsely chopped onions, celery, broccoli and carrots. I make it all paleo stuff, you don't need all the seasonings in this recipe, throw in what you like.
