Open Live Journal Cookbook

Cuban Pork Roast
(Serves 8-10)
15-20 minutes prep time, 3-4 hours cooking time.

8lbs, bone in fresh pork picnic shoulder. Other meats can be used, but pork is standard.
6 Limes or 1 cup of lime juice
8 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of salt
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
2 cups water
3 tablespoons of white vinegar

Preheat oven to 325°F. Squeeze the limes to produce the necessary cup of lime juice. Mince the garlic. In a bowl, stir everything together, with the exception being the pork. Poke holes in the meat so that the sauce can be absorbed more easily. Then put the pork in a dish which is then covered with the sauce. Bake it, cover it with tinfoil, slowly at 325°F for 90-120 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 90-120 minutes.

Serve and enjoy this traditional thanksgiving day meal of cuban origin. :)

Juicer recommendations please [Aug. 9th, 2006|05:38 pm]
Open Live Journal Cookbook

I want to buy a really good juicer that does whole foods like uncut apples and vegetables, and is able to process wheatgrass. I can pay up to $200 bucks. I think I want a triturating (twin gear) machine but i'm not sure. What do you own, how much did you get it for and where did you buy it? Any good review sites or juicer sites you know of? I was looking here for info http://www.bestjuicers.com/juicertypes.html Any good data you can offer is appreciated.

Some of the ones i've been looking at:
Omega Nutrition Center 8005 $259
Green Star GS-3000
Green Power GP-E1503 Gold
Omega Juicers 8003 Nutrition Center
Omega Juicers 8005

I'm apparently making a lasagne tonight...i've never made one ever!

Does anyone have a good recipe? It's being made with turkey mince as I cannot have red meat. I been googling but its not helping. Do I cook the meat first?

Then add the potato and stir simmering for another 10 mins. Add some branston to taste (if you dont like branston you could use something else thats tangy).

Going to make jagash 's Curry in a Hurry Saturday night when the kids are in bed.  Mmmmm something spicy and a good movie.  I'll post how it turns out on Sunday :)

Also, Christmas is coming *do I hear you groan?* Its a time for being a greedy so and so. . . .does anyone have a traditional recipe for this time of year?  It doesnt have to be traditional in the way that its a national dish, maybe something that you've always made or eaten in your family?  I will post the recipe for Mince Pies, a very old traditional Christmas pastry here in England.  As

morland  and I got married on Dec 29, we had them at our wedding feast :)

Banana Bread [Oct. 21st, 2004|09:17 pm]
Open Live Journal Cookbook
[Current Mood |draineddrained]

Here is the recipe at last!  This is from my mother-in-law in Beebe, Arkansas.  She is thrilled to think its being shared on here :)

Banana Bread

  1. 2 cups sifted flour
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  4. 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  5. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  6. 1 cup chopped pecans (optional just as tasty without)
  7. ! large Egg (well beaten)
  8. 3 or 4 mashed ripe bananas
  9. 1/4 cup Buttermilk
  10. 1/4 vegetable oil
  11. 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Blend first 5 ingredients.  Mix in the nuts. Combine remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.  Add all at once to dry mixture stirring only enough to moisten dry ingredients. Put into a greased 9 x 5 x 2 inch pan (or there abouts), making sure it goes in evenly into the corners.  Bake at 350 degrees ( I think thats about 170) for about 50 minutes, or when a wooden pick comes out clean.

This is a very old recipe.  We hope you like.  Barbara made this just before we married over there, and Im surprised I fitted into my Wedding Dress!  What with the cookies too. . .but thats another recipe. . . . .;)
