Cabbage Salad (Hallie's)

Recipe By : Hallie
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 12-08 Aug 2009

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 small cabbage -- cored and sliced
1/2 cup chopped double-smoked bacon
1 cup blanched fresh peas
Water -- just a bit
1 green onion -- sliced
2 small celery ribs -- thinly sliced
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Angostura bitters
Salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste

Firstly, this is a salad, not a cake, so you can adjust things to suit your
own taste preferences. If you are serving more people than I was, adjust
the quantities as necessary.

Cut the half cabbage into 4 sections and slice them fairly thinly but not
paper thin. Put this into a large bowl and set aside while you work with
the rest of the ingredients.

I cut three thin (again, not paper thin - but not thick either) slices
about 3 inches (7 to 8 cm) long from a slab of good double-smoked bacon
then cut them crosswise into little chunks. Use the good solid stuff with a
nice smoky flavour, not the honey-smoked watery stuff, if at all possible.
If the bacon has a rind, cut it off before you cut it into chunks. Fry the
bacon for a little bit in a saucepan or sauté pan until some of the fat
fries out and the rest is starting to look somewhat translucent. Don't
frizzle it to hard bits - you want it cooked but still with a nice chewy
texture. Remove the bacon from the pan.

Add the peas to the same pan and immediately add a little bit of water or
the peas will start to pop like popcorn and jump out at you (voice of
experience here). Stir constantly. As soon as the peas turn a bright green
and you can see they are starting to cook remove them. If fresh peas are
not available use frozen ones, thawed, without any cooking.

Add the peas and bacon to the cabbage.

Slice the green onion, using both the green and white (or red if you are
using a young red onion from the garden as I was) parts, very thinly; add
to the cabbage.

Slice the celery ribs (I used the small ribs near the center) very thinly
and add.

Toss all these ingredients together lightly until they are fairly evenly

You can make the salad a few hours ahead to this point and keep
refrigerated until you are ready to make the dressing, which you will do as
close to serving time as possible.


Put a couple of good-sized spoonfuls of mayonnaise into a small bowl. The
amount you use should be to your own preference. I just wanted enough to
lightly coat things but not enough to drown them. Stir in about a
tablespoon of Dijon mustard and a few drops of Angostura bitters.

Before you add the dressing, sprinkle the salad with salt and pepper to
taste; mix well. Add the dressing and mix.

Hallie's comment. I promised to bring the salad to a small impromptu
neighbourhood wiener roast and since I had just purchased a cabbage from a
local market gardener I opted for cabbage salad. I wanted to do something
simple but a bit different and this is what I came up with. After being
told I could bring that again any time I decided I would share it with you.

Makes enough to serve 6 people who already have a hotdog, some potatoes
with chili, braised zucchini slices and cherry tomatoes on their plates
(and some chilled Alberta apple wine in their glasses).

Capellini Sun-Dried Tomato Pomodoro

Recipe By : Art Guyer
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 12-08 Aug 2009

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
16 ounces dry angel hair pasta
1 tablespoon salt -- for pasta water

1/3 cup olive oil
6 garlic cloves -- minced
1/2 medium sweet onion -- diced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 pounds plum tomatoes -- seeded and diced
8 ounces sun-dried tomato pesto
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt -- or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar -- or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper -- or more to taste

2 cups fresh basil leaves -- minced
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese

Start a pot of water to boil. Once your water starts boiling add salt and
pasta. Cook until al dente, about 3-4 minutes. Once your noodles have
finished cooking, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking
process. Make sure you strain as much water as possible from the noodles
before continuing.

While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil and add garlic, onion and red pepper
flakes; cook until onion turns translucent. Add tomatoes, sun-dried tomato
pesto, wine, salt, sugar and black pepper; heat through, stirring
constantly, about 2 to 3 minutes. Tomatoes should not lose their shape.

After the noodles have been rinsed and thoroughly drained, add them to your
tomato sauce and gently stir to combine. Cook over medium heat until the
noodles are warmed through. About 3-5 minutes.

Transfer pasta and sauce to large bowl. Toss pasta gently with basil and
Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately and pass additional Parmesan, if

Doris baked the Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits recipe I sent in previously. 
They were extremely close to the ones we had at the Red Lobster, and 6 of 
us went through 2 dozen of them before the night was over.

1/4 cup olive oil -- divided
3 large sweet onions -- cleaned and chopped
1 whole garlic bulb -- cleaned and finely diced
2 large sweet red peppers -- cleaned and chopped
5 pounds ground venison -- with 30% ground pork
3 cans beef broth

1/2 cup cider vinegar
16 ounces Salsa -- (medium hot) (1 jar)

3 tablespoons parsley
5 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons basil
1 teaspoon cayenne -- level
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons oregano
3 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar -- or Splenda
1 tablespoon smoked paprika

2 cups fresh cilantro -- washed and chopped
2 cups shredded cheese
2 cups sweet onions -- chopped

You may substitute a low-fat content ground beef for the venison in this

In a large heavy pan or pot, heat half of the olive oil. Add the onion,
garlic and sweet peppers and sauté on medium heat until the onions begin to
get translucent. Add the ground meat and break up quickly. Add beef broth
and cook until meat is done. Stir frequently while cooking to break up the
meat as fine as possible.

In the mean time, heat up a Nesco 18-quart roaster or equivalent-sized pot.
When the meat mixture is done, transfer it to the roaster or pot. Add the
liquids, stir and cook for about 30 minutes.

While this is cooking combine the spices in a separate bowl and mix
thoroughly. Add at least a half a cup of the spices to the chili pot after
the 30-minute cooking time. Stir it in well. Cook for another 30 minutes,
taste them chili and add as much of the remaining spices you desire. Cook
for another 30 minutes and reduce chili to a simmer. It can simmer now for
up to another hour. Stir frequently and adjust seasoning during this last

Serve plain or over spaghetti, baked potato or rice, with grated low-fat
cheese and chopped onions on the side. Sprinkle fresh cilantro on top of
chili in bowls when serving.

Tortilla chips or browned chunks of Italian bread are also good on the

The chili freezes well.

2008 Version


This recipe is for a large number of servings, but can easily be cut down.
In chili, proportions should be generally followed, but not necessarily
precisely adhered to. I make up the spice blend ahead of time, making
plenty and often it is enough to last through two chili makings!

Cookie Cake Pie

Recipe By :
Serving Size :   Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 12-08 Aug 2009

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
A batch of cookie dough
A single batch of cake batter
A single pie crust
Frosting for a birthday cake

Prepare one batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. You can leave this in the
fridge or to the side while you prepare the rest. Doris used the premade
chocolate chip cookie dough you get in the grocery store coolers.

Prepare a single pie crust and line it into a pie plate. Doris used the
premade Pillsbury pie crusts, also found in grocery store coolers.

Place the cookie dough inside of the pie crust and using your fingers or a
spoon, spread it so that it evenly coats the bottom of the crust. Doris'
was about 3/4 of an inch thick.

Pre-heat the oven to 350F (180C).

Let the cookie-filled pie crust rest for a bit while you mix up some
birthday cake. Doris used yellow cake mix.

Pour cake batter directly on top of the cookie dough until the pie crust is
about 2/3 filled. The cake will rise, so you want to leave room for it. If
you have left over batter, make a few cupcakes.

Bake for about 30 minutes and start checking every 5 minutes to see if it
is done. It took Doris' cake about 45 or 50 minutes to set up.

Let cool; frost generously with buttercream frosting. Garnish as desired.

Doris doubled this recipe and made two cake/pies. She used 9-inch cake pans
instead of pie plates because they were deeper. She added peanut butter to
one of the batches of icing. Miniature chocolate chip cookies were used to
garnish the cakes.

Photos of Doris' results are at:

Notes. If shrimp doesn't suit your tastes, cooked chicken makes a good
substitute. For a vegetarian variation, replace the chicken broth with
vegetable broth and use diced extra-firm tofu instead of the shrimp

Bobbie's Note. This was a delicious recipe. I made 1/2 of the recipe for 4
for the 2 of us.
