2011 Epiphanies -day 1 (the "recipe whisperer" is in)




Scratch tater tots


It was not at all necessary for me to make my own tater tots from scratch. But have you ever read the ingredients on the package at the supermarket? It took me just 3 tries to get this right, and even the first two tries were edible. For the complete recipe enter "tots redux" in the search field of my blog. You'll amaze your kids, especially if you tell them you made this up!
I'm calling myself the "recipe whisperer" this week. I've already started making fixes for things people don't like. If you want to participate, write me at scrout1944@msn.com. I won't see things so readily if you comment here. I want to know what you would like to learn to like and what it is about a dish or ingredient that puts you off. I'm in on this too. Can anyone tell me how to love whole wheat pasta? How about a recipe for homemade menudo. Help me to love red cabbage (please, not the old German way). I love it as slaw, but I want to cook it too. I promise responses by Monday, August 1.

All I do is saute red cabbage with butter a little garlic and then all spice I love the middle east flavor. My aunt was married to a lebanese man and made it that wy. I adore tater tot! These are amazing looking!

Oh! A fun challenge! Liver pate comes to mind but I must give this some more thought before e-mailing you.

Pegasus.. tried your thing, it was amazing! I am not a very good cook (nowhere near chef) but I try to make things and memorize those I like! Yours is one of them. :)

Yes, I should make these. Little bits of bacon in there too, perhaps. I wouldn't want them to be TOO healthy ;)
