"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Well, I made sausage, biscuits and gravy for dinner.

I found a recipe for mayonnaise biscuits and wanted to give it a try.

They weren't quite right for this meal, but they were alright - more like a bread texture than a good biscuit.

Mayonnaise Biscuits -- sorry I can't give credit to the person who created the recipe. I got it online and didn't get the name - if there was one.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup milk
5 Tbsp. mayonnaise

Mix. Drop by spoonfuls (next time I'm going to try an ice cream scoop) onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

Should make about 10 biscuits.

I think these would be good with a salad or any light meal.

Good gravy,, I just ate and now I am hungry again after reading this. That stuff is good anytime day or night. I guess I will go in the kitchen and open a can of sardines or something. Judy can't stand the smell of them though, well actually they are smoked kippers and they are sooooo good especially if you put some hebinaro hot sauce on them, luuuuv that hot food. Be right back, munchy time.

Easy and Elegant Pavlova

Good enough for company yet easy to make

4 egg whites
275 ml white sugar (thats 1 1/4 cup American style)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon
2 tsp cornstarch
500 ml whipping cream (2 cups or I think you guys call it a half pint)
fruit (berries are nice)

Preheat to 300 f
beat eggs until stiff, but not dry
gradually add sugar, beating after each addition until thick and glossy
gently fold in vanilla, lemon and cornstarch

Spoon into round pizza pan that has been covered in parchment paper.
working from centre, spread mixture out to edge, building up a little at the edge
leave a bit of a dip in the middle
Bake 1 hour.
cool
place on round plate or platter
Whip cream
fill meringue with sweetened whipped cream
spread to inside edge
top with desired fruit

Great let me know if you like it.

When separating the eggs be sure to not let any yellow get in there or you won't get the desired result.
Also, when whipping the cream make sure the beaters and bowl are prefectly clean and oil free. Pre chilling them helps too

You are heading into unknown territory with the frozen berry. The texture of the fruit may be compromised, but if you have had them before then you know best

Thanks creeper, this sounds delicious.

Once the egg white and other ingredients are mixed together, does the mixture have the consistency of meringue - soft peaks?

Yes it is meringue, but the texture is a bit chewy rather than crispy

ALRIGHTY!! I'm making Judy's pork chops right now and when I get home tonight I'm making your Pavlova.... unless I get home late. Then I'll make it tomorrow.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

I'm sure you've made whipped cream before, but just to remind you not to overbeat or you will get butter

Mmmm... popcorn.

Have you ever tried popping it in coconut oil?

I used to cook it in vegetable oil, but the coconut oil does something to it --- gives it a different texture or crispness. It's hard to explain. But now I don't even put butter on it .... lol. I used to put lots of butter on it.

Coconut oil is really good for you too. It'll cure what ails ya! Well, at least relieve some of what ails ya!
