My dad took over making pancakes in our house when I was growing up. He adapted his own recipe and his grandkids all called them Poppy Cakes. We lost him 10 years ago this week. Even though it's his recipe, Poppy Cakes aren't the same without him.

Sometimes you just need breakfast for dinner!

To steal a quote from Baylor Okie, I'd murder several people to get through them to eat this....


Wow...

It's amazing how food and memories go together...

My mom taught my wife how to make Cornbread Dressing for Thanksgiving... Mom died in 97, but every Thanksgiving that Dressing brings her back... One taste and I am filled with memories of her...

One year, Natalie made 4 Hotel Pans for the 300+ faculty that had 4 different lunches the Friday before Thanks giving... Of all the food I made for those teachers I had more of them ask for that recipe than any other... It just says home...

it is amazingly simple, i made the pastry, but you could buy that and make it even simpler, cook it in a oven-proof pan, have it with some good quality Ice Cream, doesnt get much better

i know what you mean, i remember going round my Grandmas house when i was a kid and having Teacakes, which i guess are similar to fruit buns, she used to pop them under the grill and whenever i smell something being cooked that way, it reminds me of her, they say Smell is one of the most powerful senses in regards to triggering memories.

Boiled Shrimp Remoulade on Fried Green Tomatoes... Nat says it's stopped her from ever ordering them at a restaurant because they just don't measure up... Crispy and Spicy!


Seven Hour Braised Short Rib Tacos with Queson Fresco


Blackened Shrimp and Grits... add sauted Bell Pepper and Onion and just a little Swiss Cheese to the Grits and it really kicks it up a notch...

Right now we are planning on being at every Home Conference game... in the past we have hung out with Mike at his tailgate the few times we could come on a High School Football Coach's schedule.... I haven't talked to Redfish about this so far, but if he is ok with it I'd love to hang with his crew pregame... This year I'll even have time to make something.... just have to see what will travel well or that I can make there...

Plating did not come out great... too many shrimp, too much crab and too little vessel... Looked more like a casserole...

But still, the flavor was awesome!

Scallops tonight. Scallops with homemade spinach pasta, covered with a cream sauce made of bell peppers, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and whipping cream. Pretty tasty!

Ridiculous. Good job.

What do you use to make pasta? Attachment or dedicated roller?

Old fashioned rolling pin first, a 100 year old persimmon beast of a roller. Then I have a pasta roller with a cutting attachment. I have cutting attachments for fettucine, cappellini, and spaghetti. We do a few other shapes by hand. (Orecchiette, cappellacci, etc.) We usually do regular egg pasta, but occasionally do green versions like this, bright red (tomato) and black (squid ink).

I have a manual Pasta machine at home, dont use it as much as i should, only ever made Egg Pasta, what method do you use to colour it?

I have made homemade Ravioli once, was a ***** to do, but they came out lovely, Pasta is certainly one of those things that, if you have time (and means) to make it at home, it makes a real difference.

I use a little manual pasta machine too. The green pasta is from adding spinach. To get a red pasta we add tomatoes. We add squid ink to get a black pasta (very cool with something like a bright orange salmon, plus gives the pasta a little of a salty seafood taste. We just chop the spinach up to very, very fine then blend it into the dough as it is mixed. Also we've been known to crush peppercorns and blend them in to get a spicy taste and a speckled pasta. Each of these ingredients for coloring also adds some flavor and nutrition.

You're correct that ravioli are some work (and cappellacci are real beasts), but the basic pasta is not too bad. I can make about 1 pound of fettuccine in about 1/2 hour.

I have so much respect for you making scratch pasta... I keep saying I'm going to try it but so far I've always chickened out

Thanks, but it's not really that hard. The first time was a learning experience, but it's really pretty easy. My wife does the complicated stuff in the kitchen and I'm just making the pasta. We like cooking together that way. Crank up the music, get a bottle of wine out, and spend a little while in the kitchen fixing up something together. Believe me, if it were hard, I wouldn't be doing it.

pasta is more time intensive than difficult, you've basically got to mix the dough (which for basic stuff is just Pasta Flour and Eggs), roll it out lots and lots and lots of times to get it to the right thickness and then cut it to whatever shape you want and if you have a Pasta Machine, you have a device which makes the rolls you make thinner and thinner as you want it, its really not very hard at all.

For me the main benefit of the pasta machine is the rollers that can roll the pasta very very thin, almost translucent. It makes it really light and really quick to cook. Just don't cook it too long. When it's thin and fresh, angel hair may only need to cook 1 minute, fettucine just 2 minutes or so. With dried pasta you're rehydrating it the first several minutes and with fresh pasta you skip that. When it starts to float it's time to get it out.

By the way, for dietary concerns we make it other ways. When we're trying to keep pounds off, we make pasta using chickpea flour instead of semolina (wheat) flour. Gluten free, high fiber, high protein. We also make some dishes with Puglian style orecchiette, and that has no eggs - just flour, water, & a little olive oil.
