All the recipes under comfort food have made me hungry. Favorite Recipes So I am posting a separate thread about everyone's favorite recipe's whether it be comfort food, snacks, desserts etc. We could have our own BWW cookbook, we need to rename them with Broadway names though. Like BG2's, Grease's Frenchie Fries or something like that. That one is bad but just to give an idea.

Brilliant! I'm thinking...

I know you all thought I was kidding about broadwayguy2's recipe for French Fries. Well, here it is compliments of broadwayguy2:

Large pot...
Crisco (the kind in the can)...


Spoon some criso into a large pot and heat it on the stove and wait for the Crisco to melt. You don't need a lot.. the crisco, when it melts, only needs to be barely 2" deep..

Once it is melted and heated.. check to make sure it is hot enough..
wet your hand under the sink and then sprinkle a bit of the water from your wet hand into teh pot CAREFULLY. The oil should "crackle".

This is when I usually add a little salt and pepper to teh oil then.

Drop the fries into the oil -- once again, VERY careful cause that **** spatters. Don't put in too many, you don't want them piled up or anything.. they should all be able to float on the surface...

stir them gentle while they are in there for about 5 minutes -- depends on the temp and your preferance of "crispiness".. don't wait for them to feel "crispy" in the oil or get dark cause they will burn.. just fool around with a few fries at fidn out what you like..

then using a laddle, preferable one with holes in it so the oil can drain out or it.. take out the fries and lie them on a plate or bowl lined with paper towels to soak up teh grease and let them cool a lil bit and then season them however you like

If you want it healthier, you can use vegetable oil instead of Crisco.....

I have a KILLER recipe for a hot dip! Everyone loves it!

You need a rectangular glass pan.

For the recipe you need:

2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese
2 bags of shredded cheddar cheese
1 jar Hormel real bacon pieces
1 box of Ritz Crackers
3-4 scallions

Soften the cream cheese and mix with the cheddar cheese and chopped up scallions. Spread that out evenly on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the bacon bits evenly over that. Take 25 ritz crackers and break them up VERY finely (I put them into a sandwich bad and mash them) and sprinkle them evenly over the bacon. Microwave for approx. 7 minutes (or until the middle is hot) and scoop the dip out with the remaining Ritz crackers.

ENJOY!!!!!

Ok- who knew that Boneless Buffalo Wings could be so easy to make? Here's the skinny:

You need breaded chicken peices - you can buy them pre-made and fry them or bake them or I'll tell you how to make your own. If you buy them, try to get real breast pieces, not that nasty formed chicken.

To make them yourself -

Cut up chicken breasts - about 1/2 per person for appetizers, into approx 1 inch square pieces.

Then dip each piece into a mixture of egg and milk, then roll in flour that has been seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika. Repeat.

Then, fry in fry daddy or on the stove (I prefer canola oil, the least of the evils) for 3-4 minutes and check to make sure they are cooked through.

Ok - the buffalo sauce -

Mix 1 tablespoon of melted margarine with 3/4 cup of Crystal's Louisiana Hot Sauce or Franks hot sauce. I even noticed that our local Super Walmart was carrying a generic brand of louisiana hot sauce. THATS IT! Just pour the sauce over the chicken and serve wit some yummy bleu cheese dressing. MMMM! I wish I had some chicken.
...and your children start to leave you from the moment they are born.

You know, we've talked about doing the NYC AIDS Walk together this spring, right? Why don't we take Son of a gunn's idea one step further and compile a booklet of our favorite recipes and sell them at the event? Whatever the proceeds are, we can donate them to "the cause". (Dollypop will gladly contribute the whole menu served at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant--including Ernestina's "pommes souffle")

I love the idea, Dollypop. And it's not really that difficult to do. There are fundraising companies that will pretty much walk you through the process. The only difficulty might be coming up with the money to pay for the books up front. Still ...it's probably do-able.

Can you imagine the ordeal of choosing just the right title?...lol

Dollypop made a good idea great! I love it. It's a very good idea. I love it! Now just to come up with the funds for it. It'd be great it'd be a great way for some of those who can't actually be at the Aids Walk to feel like they are a part of it too.

This is one of my favorites and it's easy and yet bordering on gourmet!

P.S. - I apologize in advance for any spelling errors!

Ingredients:
Portabello Mushrooms
Sundried Tomatoes
Risotto
Heavy Cream
Salt, Pepper
Dijon Mustard

Saute/Grill/Cook chicken breasts.
Add Sundried Tomatoes and Mushrooms, saute lightly
In a seperate saucepan, add 1/2 cup dijon mustard to 1/2 cup heavy cream - - this is your sauce. Stir continuously, but do not allow to boil.
Boil the risotto until it is cooked (if it gets fluffy, you've gone too far. If it's hard like uncooked pasta, you need to let it continue!)
Mix everything together and serve with a nice sprinkling of fresh parsley atop for garnish.

Mmmmmmmmmm!

DP, I love your idea, and although I don't have many family recipes to pass along, I think most here can come up with at least one.

How about a not so simple title like: Broadwayworld.com's First Official Aids Walk CookBook.

Money could be raised by requiring those submitting recipes to include a donation to defray cost of printing. And without pressuring anyone, donations could be requested of members and readers of this site. Of course all of this would have to be with the approval of management. And they would assume no liability for gastrical repercussions that might result from submissions of the culinarily challenged. But it is a great idea. The only down side be that time is working against us.
Rest in peace, Iflitifloat.
