          get your butcher to cut a roast with bones 10-12 (more if your feeding a small army)
          chop up some Rosemary & Garlic...mix that together with coasher salt, fresh pepper, & olive oil.
          Smoother the roast with your mix
          preheat the oven to 375
          heat a pan on the range over med-high heat and sear the roast
          place in roasting pan and cut some spuds & carrots in half and drip some olive oil over them and sprinkle with salt
          place & oven uncovered till the center is rare-medium rare (depending on taste)
          when done let stand for 10 minutes before carving

            Asparagus Chicken

            1 pound chicken breast tenders
            1 egg white
            2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
            5 teaspoons soy sauce, divided
            2 teaspoons dry sherry
            2 large carrots, peeled
            1 green onion with top
            1 package (10 ounces) frozen asparagus, partially thawed
            1/2 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
            1 teaspoon sesame oil
            3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
            Hot cooked rice

            1. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Cut each chicken tender crosswise in half. Combine egg white, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 teaspoons soy sauce and sherry in large bowl; stir until smooth. Add chicken and toss to coat; set aside.

            2. Slice carrots crosswise into 2-inch lengths. Slice carrot pieces lengthwise into thin slices; stack slices and cut lengthwise into julienne strips. Cut onion diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Cut asparagus spears diagonally into 1-1/2-inch lengths.

            3. Stir broth, remaining 3 teaspoons soy sauce and sesame oil into remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch in cup until smooth. Set aside.

            4. Heat wok over high heat about 1 minute or until hot. Drizzle 2 tablespoons vegetable oil into wok and heat 30 seconds. Add chicken; stir-fry about 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove to medium bowl. Reduce heat to medium.

            5. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil into wok and heat 30 seconds. Add carrots to wok; stir-fry about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add asparagus; stir-fry 1 minute. Stir broth mixture until smooth and add to wok. Cook until sauce boils and thickens. Stir in onion, chicken and any accumulated juices to wok; cook until heated through. Serve over rice.

              Gnocchi with Wild Mushroom Sauce

              1 pound assorted wild mushrooms, such as cremini, hedgehog, shiitake, or oyster
              2 tablespoons unsalted butter
              1/4 cup minced shallots(about 2 large)
              2 sprigs fresh thyme
              1/4 cup Homemade Chicken Stock , or canned low-sodium chicken broth, skimmed of fat
              1 1/2 cups heavy cream
              1 teaspoon salt
              1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
              1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
              Potato Gnocchi

              1. Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil. Remove stems from shiitake mushrooms, and trim stems of others. Cut all the mushrooms into 1/4-inch slices, and set aside.

              2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add shallots, and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Raise heat to medium high, add mushrooms and thyme sprigs, and cook until mushrooms begin to brown on the edges, about 4 minutes. Remove thyme, add chicken stock, and reduce to 1 tablespoon, about 30 seconds. Add cream, salt, and pepper, cooking until cream thickens slightly, about 2 to 3 minutes.

              3. Drop precooked gnocchi into the pot of boiling water, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. (If gnocchi are prepared in advance but not yet cooked, boil them as described in Step 4 of the Potato Gnocchi recipe.) Lift gnocchi out of the water with a slotted spoon or skimmer, and transfer to the mushroom sauce, stirring until evenly coated; cook for about 1 to 2 minutes..and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese

                Relighting this thread..............

                I have one that's great while watching the game on TV!


                If you can find them, get yourself some Lavosh brand crackers. However, simple Water table crackers will work well also, and tend to be smaller. Try to avoid crackers that have a lot of flavor already, like Ritz. You kinda want somethig a little bigger than those too.

                Spread your crackers out on an oven-safe dish. Turn on the broiler. That's the heat from ABOVE guys, lol.

                Cover these with the toppings of your choice. Some favorites;

                Chopped black olives
                Marinated artichoke hearts- cut into small pieces
                Chopped Green onion
                Chopped pre-cooked chicken

                Avoid anything sweet, but you get the idea. It's kinda like Pizza.

                Cover this with grated Havarti cheese, there's one with dill in it if you like dill. (Very good!)

                Place under the broiler until the cheese melts. Careful not to burn, that will ruin this!!

                Remove from under broiler, and sprinkle with a LIGHT dusting of paprika.

                CHOW DOWN!

                        I found this always works well at Christmas.


                        1 cup of water
                        8oz mixed nuts
                        1 cup brown sugar
                        1 cup butter
                        1 tsp salt
                        2 cups dried fruit
                        4 large eggs
                        juice of 1 lemon
                        1 tsp baking powder
                        1 bottle Brandy


                        Sample Brandy to check quality. Take a large mixing bowl. Check the Brandy again, to be sure it is of the highest quality. Pour one cup and drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer; beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one tsp sugar and beat again. Make sure the Brandy is still okay. Cry another tup. Turn on the mixerer. Break two eggs and add to the bowl, chuck in the dried fruit. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, pry it loos with a drewscriver. Sample Brandy to check for tonsiscency. Next sift two cups of salt, or something, Who cares? Check the Brandy. Now sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Spoon. Sugar or something. Whatever you can find. Grease the oven. Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees. Don’t forget to beat off the turnerer. Throw the bowl out of the window, check the Brandy again and go to bed.

                            Allright GUYS, here's one that's a sure-fire hit with the ladies! Whenever she's mad, or you want to make a big impression on a date or something, make her this.

                            They say the way to man's heart is thru his stomach. That works for ladies also!

                            Cape Hatteras Pasta


                            1 lg. clove of Garlic
                            1 medium Carrot (Diced or julienned)
                            1 cup chopped Broccoli and Cauliflower (Broccoflower also works, and you dont need to buy two big heads of the other two for just a cup.)
                            1/2 cup Red Onion (Julienned)
                            1 Tomato (Cored, seeded, diced)
                            1/4 cup FRESH Basil (Julienned)
                            1 Tsp Black Pepper
                            1 Tbl. Olive Oil
                            3+ Tbl. Shredded Parmesean Cheese
                            3 cups cooked pasta (Really, you can use any pasta you like, Shells, Farfalle, etc. Linguini or Fettacini works excellent!)
                            1/4 cup Romana Sambuka - This is a licorice liqueur
                            1/4 cup Heavy Cream


                            Chop all the veggies, and have them each ready to go. Have all other ingredients standing by.

                            Begin with pasta, into the boiling water it goes.

                            As Pasta cooks, heat a large pan on the stove. Use a big one, everything including the pasta is going in! If you have one that's non-stick, use it. But it's gotta be big enough to hold everything.

                            Add Olive oil to the pan, heat on medium/high.

                            Add Garlic, and Onion- Saute for 1 minute, careful, dont burn the Garlic!
                            Add Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrot, and HALF of the tomato. Stir. Toss in the Pepper. Stir again, for about 2-3 minutes.
                            Add Basil, Sambuka, and Cream. Lower heat, and simmer 2-3 minutes.
                            By this time, the pasta should be ready, drain, and toss that in too!
                            Add the cheese, the rest of the tomato, and stir to combine well.


                            This dish also can be enhanced greatly with the addition of Shellfish. Shrimp, Lobster, and especially Crab work very well.
                            Add precooked shellfish along with the pasta in the last step, and heat thru. If cold, add the shellfish right after the cream, before you toss in the pasta to make sure it gets heated thru.

                            Guys, trust me! This one works every time!! It's colorful, very tasty, and shows her you can make something beyond just Steaks & Burgers.

                            This recipe comes courtesy of the Tanqe Verde Ranch Resort, in Arizona.
