The Recipe Whisperer

Two things are going to happen this week. First, I will be posting the most influential ideas that have come my way this year (calendar year 2011). I will start with this. Chris (http://www.nibblemethis.com/), shared with us the reverse sear technique. Visit his site for the details. It is the single most influential idea for me for 2011.
Second, I want a challenge. Jenn and I have entered into one. She has agreed to try a recipe for lima beans (not her favorite thing in the world), and I will undertake to try one of her versions of tiliapia. The results will be published here and on her blog. I did the tilapia in my usual flour, egg, breadcrumbs fashion and shallow fried in very hot oil. It was excellent - good enough to repeat.


I want you to tell me something that you do not like and why (nothing having to do with allergies please) and agree to let me design a recipe that just might change your mind. On my side I will offer similar dislikes and solicit your help in overcoming them. We all stand to gain from this.
We need time to get ready. I propose the first "throwdown" should be next Monday, August 1.


Send me your ideas and I will put out a list of personal prejudices for you to contemplate and cure. Are you in? Let's communicate via email. My address is scrout1944@msn.com
Here's what I need help with: whole wheat pasta, homemade menudo. The least expensive cut of steak you can teach me to marinate and prepare on my stove top grill. I love broccoli, but I can't stand it when it comes to the table lukewarm. Help me fix that. There will be more.

What a great idea, Stephen. I'm frantically busy right now trying to get my site in shape for our long trip. That means I have to have 60 recipes to go and that I won't be able to participate. Can I play in November? Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

Sounds like fun... I'll have to do some thinking.

Sounds like fun but I don't have a clue with any of those you mentioned.

Menuedo? Is that band still around? ha ha ha

I can't wait to see how these pan out.
