FC: 1A's Best Recipes | What's Cookin'

1: Bon Appetit! | "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law." Galatians 5: 22-23

2: Ingredients any shape pasta ( Daniel likes the farfalle he calls it bowtie :) sliced mushrooms colored bell peppers slices sliced onions sliced olives tomato sauce olive oil salt and pepper thyme | Directions Heat skillet then add olive oil (1/4 cup) then saute onion, then add bell pepper and saute, then add mushroom and saute for about 5 more minutes. Add 1 can of tomato sauce and 1 can water, salt and pepper and 1tsp of ground thyme. Simmer for 10 minutes, then remove and add olives . Toss all with cooked pasta. | Pasta with Mixed Vegetables | Daniel Assad

3: Ingredients 1 lb ground beef ( 20% fat) 1/2 an onion salt and pepper | Directions Mix all ingredients and shape into thick sausages and grill on high heat. | Grilled Kafta

4: Whole Wheat Bread | Ingredients 6 cups warm water, approx. 115 degrees 2 tbs. Sea salt 2/3 cup oil (I use olive oil) 2/3 cup honey (buy from Costco!) 1 tbs sugar 3 tbs. Dough enhancer (ok to skip if you don't have this) 2 cups high gluten bread flour or 1/3 cup vital wheat gluten 3 tbs. instant yeast 6 to 8 cups of fresh ground flour | Jared Barrett

5: Directions Add your warm water to your mixing bowl with a tbs of sugar (or honey) and your yeast. Give this a minute to activate the yeast while you prep the rest of your ingredients. Then add the rest of the ingredients in the order listed above. Mix on medium until all incorporated. Turn the machine to speed 1 and continue to add wheat flour only until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. When you can see the sides pull clean as well as the dough coming clean from the bottom of the bowl you know you have enough flour. (do not add too much flour) the dough should be very sticky and does not come together at this point, but the bowl is clean. Knead on speed 1 for 8-10 minutes or until the gluten has been developed. If you feel your dough is too dry, simply add a few tablespoons of water to moisten. (always pulling the sides clean) if dough starts sticking simply add a little white flour to take up the moisture. Oil your hands, remove dough from mixer onto a slightly oiled counter, divide your dough with a dough divider into 4-5 large loaves depending on your pan size. (we like the 8 by 4 ” pan, and we usually get 5. However, because we never measure our flour exactly, sometimes we get 4, it will depend on the weather and the climate outside. Shape loaves, and place in a well greased or sprayed (Pam) pan, never use oil. Cover with a dry towel and let rise until dough has risen double or approx. 2 inches above the rim of the pan. This will take from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the room temperature. You do not have to double rise this recipe. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the inside temp (my oven runs hot so I start checking at 25 minutes to make sure not to overcook it) is 200 degrees and top is browned. An instant read thermometer is very useful in telling whether your bread is done. Test after baking time is complete by taking bread out of its pan and pushing the thermometer into side or bottom of loaf. If not 200 degrees, place back in pan and bake another few minutes. Cool on cooking racks before putting into bread bags. The bread can be frozen up to 30 days without freezer burn.

6: Wendy Bell | Ingredients Peaches Grapefruit Apples Grapes Strawberries Kiwi Mango Honeydew | Fruit Salad

Italian seasoning 1/4 lb mozzarella, provolone or Muenster cheese | Directions Slice zucchini (or other favorite veggies) on the diagonal to a 1/2-inch thick slices. Wash, core and seed peppers; chop coarsely. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. While pasta is still hot, toss with washed baby spinach. Wash tomatoes and cut into halves. Thinly slice the onions. Crush peeled garlic in the olive oil. Wash and chop basil leaves and add to oil. In a large bowl, toss remaining ingredients with oil, balsamic vinaigrette, sea salt and black pepper, to taste. If you prefer a milder garlic taste, spray garlic with olive oil and roast or sauté until tender before crushing it in the olive oil.

Rinse your chicken breasts in water and then cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat then dip into the eggs. Heat your 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place the chicken in a 9x13 greased baking dish. Mix all of your sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk and then pour evenly over the chicken. Bake for one hour and during the baking process you will need to turn the chicken every 15 minutes.

12: Ingredients 1 1/4 cups milk 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for greasing 1/3 cup plus 1 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. kosher salt 2 1/4-oz. packages active dry yeast 5 cups flour 1 tbsp. canola oil 1 lb. bacon finely diced 1 small yellow onion, minced salt and black pepper, to taste 1 tbsp. heavy cream 1 egg yolk 1 egg white, lightly beaten | Carter Hill

13: Latvian Perogies | Directions Make the dough: Heat milk, butter, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves; set aside. Whisk together remaining sugar, yeast, and 1/4 cup water heated to 115 in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook; let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Whisk in milk mixture, add flour, and mix on low speed until dough forms. Increase speed to medium-high and knead until smooth, about 8 minutes. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; let sit until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Meanwhile, make the filling: Heat oil in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat, and add bacon; cook, stirring, until fat renders, about 6 minutes. Add onion and cook, stirring, until onion is lightly caramelized but bacon is not crisp, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper. Let cool completely. Heat oven to 400. Whisk together cream and egg yolk in a small bowl; set egg wash aside. Transfer dough to a floured work surface and cut in half. Working with one half at a time, roll dough until 1/4 thick. Using a 2 1/2 round cutter, cut out dough rounds. Place 1 heaping tsp. bacon filling in center of each round, and, using your fingers, moisten edges of round with egg white; fold over to enclose filling, and pinch edges together to seal. Transfer turnovers, seam side down, to parchment paper—lined baking sheets, spaced 3 apart. Using a pastry brush, brush wash over each bun; bake until golden brown, 12–15 minutes. (Makes about 60.)

14: Nigerian Fried Rice | Ingredients 4 cups of rice Cabbage medium size Carrot {about 3 big sizes} Green beans {2 cups} Peas {half cup}(optional) Liver {0.3kg} Meat {1 to 2kg}(chicken, beef or goat meat) Vegetable oil {15cl} Onions {2 big Bulbs} Curry powder (coloring spice) {2 T/spoons} Salt and pepper to taste | Uchenna Izuegbunam

15: Directions Set your cooking pot on fire, allow to dry, then pour in about 10 to 15cl of groundnut or vegetable oil (some folks also prefer cooking margarine) If you want to use cooking margarine a sachet would be enough. Note: It is better to continue with the same oil you used while frying the meat (that is only if you fried the meats), you can reduce it if you want to about 10cl. Allow to heat then add the sliced onions stir for 1-2 minutes then add the chopped carrot and green beans, any of this two can actually go first. Stir for 1-2 minutes then add the curry powder (Curry is a yellowish spice that actually adds the yellowish color of fried rice, add and stir till you are satisfied with the color.) Add the cabbage, stir, add the meat juice (water from the meat), add ground pepper (optional), add the chopped liver, add 1-2 cubes of maggi or knorr then stir and taste. You would have a yellowish mixture which would often taste overly spiced, don’t worry, the rice will balance the taste. (If it doesn't taste overly spiced it is advisable to add another cube of maggi and salt so it doesn't become tasteless after you add the white rice.) If you are satisfied with the taste then add the almost-done white rice, stir, cover your pot and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, you are done with fried rice. Serve with the fried meat (chicken, beef)

16: Luke's Ground Beef Stew | Ingredients 1 lb ground beef 1 1/2 C beef broth chopped onion chopped celery chopped carrots chopped green pepper Can of cannellini beans Can of fire roasted stewed tomatoes dried basil leaves dried oregano paprika salt pepper | Directions Saute onion, celery, carrots and peppers in a little olive oil in a big pot. Add the beef until it's brown. Throw all the other stuff in the pot and let it get hot for a while.

17: Luke Leonard | Grilled Asparagus | Directions Wash and snap ends off of a bunch (or two) of fresh asparagus. The thinner the better. In a gallon size Ziploc toss in some olive oil, some sea salt, and a tablespoon or so of minced garlic & mix. Add the asparagus and seal. Toss to coat and then leave to marinate for 30 minutes to all day. (I LOVE to prep in the morning!). When you're ready to grill, clean the grill and fire it up. Put your asparagus directly onto the grill (I like to do top rack so I can cook meat below) and cook until done (or crispy (however you like it). Know that you'll sacrifice a few spears in the fire but its worth it.
