Shamelessly stolen from the Annual Recipe Exchange
thread at Ace of Spades HQ
, a collection of recipes, perhaps suitable, perhaps not.
It IS Ace of Spades HQ
, after all.
And, you may note, the AoSHQ Moron Horde seems to have an affinity for chili con carne. Beans or no beans in the chili seems almost as contentious as the infamous "crossbow or longbow" AoSHQ debate.
Sis-in-law's Texas Chili
- Posted by co-blogger (or "cob logger") Gabriel Malor:
2.5 lb. ground beef
2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 yellow onions, diced
2 chili peppers, diced (remove the seeds)
2 carrots, small diced
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 cup water
Brown the beef in a skillet, breaking it up into small pieces, and drain. Put the beef and the rest of the fixings into the crock-pot and simmer over low heat. Stir every 20-30 minutes or so. Cook for three hours or so.
Easy, perfect, no beans. Eat it with shredded cheddar and sour cream, according to your tastes, over tortilla chips, Fritos, or corn bread.
Brandy Alexander Pie
- Posted by Gabriel Malor, but actually from "Anchoress" Elizabeth Scalia
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tspn salt
3 eggs, separated
1/4 cup cognac. Donít be cheap, use the good stuff.
1/4 cup creme de cacao
2 cups heavy cream
1 tspn sugar
1/2 tspn vanilla
1 9″ graham cracker crust
chocolate curls for garnish
Sprinkle gelatin over the cold water in a saucepan. Add 1/3 c of the sugar, the salt and the egg yolks. Stir to blend.
Heat over low flame while stirring until the gelatin dissolves and the mixture thickens. DO NOT BOIL.
Remove from heat and stir in the cognac and creme de cacao. Chill until mixture starts to set slightly.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually beat in the remaining sugar and fold into the thickened mixture
Use 1 cup cream to make whipped cream and fold into the mixture.
Turn it all into the crust and chill for several hours or overnight.
Before serving, whip second cup of cream with a teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 tspn vanilla, spread that over the pie, then sprinkle with chocolate curls.
A large enough slice may get you loaded, but in truth, this is a very light, fluffy dessert.
This is also an excellent thing to bring to your New Yearís celebration, but do warn people that they are drinking while they eat it.
Angel Em's Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip
- Posted by Gabriel Malor
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. cloves
Throw it in a bowl and stir. So easy even this moron can do it. Serve with gingersnaps for dipping during the game. I also like it with a spoon. Or fingers. It's just good, okay?
Easy sweet potatoes (or, yes, yams)
- Posted by "Red Emchilada"
You people who make the sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top are crazy. THIS is how you do sweet potatoes.
Melt on the stovetop;
1 stick of butter
1 cup of orange juice
1 cup of brown sugar
Add about 4-5 sweet potatoes/yams cut into bite size pieces. Cook for at least 2 hours. You may have to add more orange juice, but that's it.
Hands down the best sweet potato recipe there is.
But wait! There's more (after the jump, or the "Read More", or whatever the next-page-thingie calls itself nowadays . . .
