Ketana, I officially love you! I've been on at my mother to write down the meatloaf recipe she used to make back home for months and she hasn't remembered yet; but that is it, right there, or damn near enough! Methinks, next week, Kitty is making meatloaf... With the 'top with more ketchup if desired' bit, what we used to do is this... we'd put a can of condense campbells tomato soup on the top, and then add some cheese slices (and sometimes bacon if Evil was sober enough to remember to buy it) when it was just about done to melt over the top ^_^ MMMMMMMM!

Now, who really wants to make this a kick ass day and find me a decent recipe for cornbread? ~_^ Not that it matters... Mom says half the stuff I'd need for it, I won't find so readily here. Aw well, I'll have meatloaf... Kitty-rotta dines again!

So officially you love me..unofficially you wha? Okay I'll stop being E-BIL for now..:c030a: and give you the simplest cornbread recipe I have..you can make it sweeter by adding a bit more sugar or savory by adding green onions *scallions* if you like..or maybe even some chilies!

1 cup yellow fine cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup canned creamed corn
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, cooled slightly
1 large egg, beaten to blend




Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°F. Butter 8-inch square baking pan. Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl to blend. Add creamed corn, butter and egg. Stir just until blended. Spoon batter into pan.
Bake until edges begin to pull away from pan sides and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in pan on rack.

Enjoy cutie!

Lemon Chicken:

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken (weight depends on # of servings required)
1 large lemon cut in halves
sprig of resemary
salt & pepper to taste
butter or olive oil whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Rub butter or olive oil over skin of chicken, coating completely

Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;  slide lemon halves gently under skin, peel side up.  This way the juice from the lemon will coat breast.
Season skin of chicken to your preference;  place sprig of resemary into chicken.  Cover and place in oven for 30 to 45 minutes.  Remove cover and continue to roast until juice runs clear, basting every 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size of the bird.

If you've followed these steps correctly, your chicken should look like this:

Something perfect for this time of year..

cup butter or margarine

1/4
cup whipping cream

1
cup packed brown sugar

3/4

1

I love to cook but I don't use recipes. I wrote out a recipe for my world famous Sicilian style sauce (picchio pacio):

Ingredients
Tomatoes (lots of them)
Garlic (whole cloves)
Basil (fresh!)
Olive Oil (extra virgin)
Red Pepper flakes
Salt and Pepper

Preperation
Cut the tomatoes up into nice size chunks.
In a large sauce pan (the short wide pan) heat up a good amount of olive oil.
Cut the garlic into pieces, I prefer big pieces that way you can remove them if you dont like garlic).
Sautee the red pepper flakes and garlic until it is translucent (NOT BROWN).
If the garlic gets brown it will ruin the sauce. Toss it out and start again.

Once the garlic is sauteed, add the chopped up tomatoes and basil (just rip up the basil into big pieces).
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let it simmer for a while with the cover off.
Then put the cover about 3/4 of the way on, so that the pan can breathe. You want to sauce chunky and not too soupy.
By leaving the cover about 3/4 of the way on, enough liquid will evaporate.
You want to cook this for about 1/2 hour. Keep tasting it to make sure the tomatoes are cooked and the correct
consistency you want.

Serve this with Penne pasta with lines

Whats that then, some kind of "marinara sauce" or what?  Just kidding.  I already made two batches of the stuff with my own home grown tomatoes.  I like using the good oil, lots and lots of garlic, and extra fresh basil.  Finally I can use up what turned out to be enough tomatoes to feed the Lexx!

Anybody know any good tomato soups?

Tomatoes continue.......

A simple Tomato Soup recipe as you requested..

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped
3 stalks of celery, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded

4 tomatoes, chopped or 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crumbled
3 cups of vegetable or chicken stock 
Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot and saute the onion, celery, and carrots until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the tomatoes and basil. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are softened.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and carefully blend until smooth. (Caution! Hot liquids create steam which will blow the top off the blender! Be sure to securely hold blender lid down!)
  4. Return pureed mixture to cooking pot and combine with the stock. Simmer, uncovered, until soup is reduced to the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 4 servings.
