I suppose years of having to cook on a very frugal budget gave me a over active imagination when it comes to cooking. For that I am grateful. I hate to throw out food, any food, so I recycle it instead. Please share your dishes, and/or recipes that are made with leftovers.


Challenge: Make something up out of the ingredients I have left.

A baked chicken breast that was marinated in a mustard and lemon sauce. A mixture of different mushroom that have already been been introduced...all marinated in garlic, butter and white truffle oil, Baby bell sweet peppers, 2 avocados, onions, black olives, too many cheeses to count YOU guys will make it great

Refrigerator Cooking. East meets West, South meets North, North meets South and etc...

Why not? I am cleaning out the fridge and using my J.A.P. member recipes to help me. This is a very strange menu tonight...but I will make it work. Andy's recent chicken marinade...but I am using it on Copper River Red Salmon, German Red Cabbage, Skinny Oven and Carrot Fries, Grilled Corn on the Cobb (has been vacuum sealed after it was grilled and will be boiled in the bag). Salmon=Northwest, marinade=Southwest and East, German=Northeast, Fries=Northwest, Corn= South...how am I doing? I think the grilled corn can also be called the MidWest right?

Risotto Question

Risotto is never as good the second day! It seems like it turns to mush. I know, it's pasta and that's what pasta does...it's a starch. But isn't there a way to "reconstitute" it? I thought about heating a little more broth or water and adding it in until warm. Any ideas?


Heaven forbid! Need help with that four-letter word: KRAB

Yes, I know....I live in Alaska where we have the world's best Alaskan King Crab and I did buy some yesterday to make that Peppy Pimento Grilled Cheese a member posted. BUT....I also like the imitation Krab. Here's the problem: I've got a LOT to use up.

Please post your favorite recipes that I can freeze. I am already going to make a quiche but need other ideas. I pinched Stuffed and Grilled Jalapenos and a Krab Alfredo.

Thanks for your help everyone!

Yes....I saved all my shells from shrimp, lobster, and crab as well as scrap veggies (the ends and peelings of onions, carrots, etc. Since I bought some AK King Crab today at the store to make a grilled cheese, I thought I had enough to bring the old shells out of the freezer and make stock. I will pressure can this stock and use it whenever I need to make gumbo, chowder, orzo or anything else that a seafood stock might enhance the recipe better than water.

Yes, I sent the recipe for the Breakfast Tacos. I didn't eat my baked potato last night and recycled it into my breakfast tacos. Also recycled part of that red onion that was sliced but not used.

I love the idea of recycling meals and I do it all the time. I look forward to hearing more and seeing your recipes.

Yesterday l made a roast in Ronnie's Ninja Cooker. He had a big thick sirloin steak in the freezer (from an organic grown cow he bought from his best friend, Larry.) Ronnie found some frozen roast gravy from the last roast we cooked. So we supplemented this roast with that gravy. Unbelievable! ;~p
