    By suggestion of Ish, here's an "E-Wok" thread (it took me a minute to get that, ha) for posting any recipes you'd like to share.

    These can be casseroles, foreign food, silly, fandom-based (like Harry Potter butterbeer), desserts, whatever you'd like! Have at it! :D

    Here is a recipe of my own invention, done entirely by accident:

    SLOPPY JOSEs.

    1 pound of beef
    1 tomato
    1 tsp cilantro
    1/2 onion
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1 can sloppy joe sauce or as much barbecue sauce as you can stand.

    Brown beef in a large skiller, chop the onion, tomato, and shred the cilantro. Mix these together to your taste. Basically, the level of spiciness is your decision. Mix the pico de gallo stuff into the browned meat and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with the sauce on toasted bread.

    Note: This was supposed to be a recipe for salsa burgers that went slightly wrong and turned into mexican-style sloppy joes.

    Oh, and Mia, there are better fan-based things, like Voldetorte!

    Cranberry Chicken

    2 packages dry onion soup mix
    16 oz bottle Catalina dressing
    2 cans whole berry cranberry sauce
    thawed raw chicken (can be bone in or boneless)

    Mix the onion mix, dressing and cranberry sauce in a slow cooker. Add as much chicken as will fit. Cook on high setting for 4-6 hours.

    This recipe is delicious. It may seem a little strange (I think Catalina dressing is disgusting in general) but trust me! You can also use some of the cranberry mix left in the pot as a dressing on a tossed salad side dish.

    And Ish said I should post this one:

    Lembas (this recipe was made up by our very own Gardner)


    2 1/2 cups of ?lembas? flour (1 1/2 cups white flour, 1/2 cup wheat flour, 1/4 cup ground almonds, 1/4 cup oat flour [or ground oats])
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    ½ to 1 teaspoon nutmeg (to taste)

    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    8 Tablespoons cold butter
    1/3 cup sugar
    2/3 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon lemon extract (can substitute 1 teaspoon lemon zest, I prefer this)

    1/2 teaspoon almond extract

    Preheat over to 425 degrees.

    Mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Chop butter into mixture with a pastry cutter or knead in with your fingers until you get a crumbly mixture. Add sugar and mix. Add milk and lemon and almond extracts and stir with a fork until dough forms.

    Roll the dough out about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut out 3 inch squares and transfer to a cookie sheet. Criss-cross each square from corner to corner with a knife. Bake for about 12 minutes or until set and lightly golden. Makes 10 to 12, depending on how large you cut and how thick you roll.


    These are to die for! They taste so delicious. When I make it I never want to share.

    I have heard of people coming up with a recipe for this, but have never tried any before. I wonder if it taste any good (guess that all depends on how you make it). Have any of you tried making it before?
