Interesting fact about honey:

In Ayurvedic medicine, it is considered very unhealthy to eat cooked honey. It's even recommended that tea be cooled a little before adding honey.

The reasoning is that cooked honey creates "ama" or negative intelligence/waste in the body. It is the opposite of "ojas" which is like a person's reservoir of health.

Pasteurized honey is considered very unhealthy. I love raw honey- tastes much better than the other stuff and retains the enzymes and sometimes the cappings with royal jelly, propolis, and pollen.

I'll check out your recipes now. :)

Healthy and Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

First:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine

Second:
1/4 cup hot boiling water
1 tsp baking soda

Third:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine First and beat with mixer.
Combine Second and mix it with First.
Combine Third with First and Second, mix, and form cookies size.
Bake at 330 deg F (on convection gas oven) for approx 10 minutes.
You can replace chocolate chips with raisins, or anything you like, or even omit it.

Home made flour tortillas

2 cups flour, mix of whole wheat and white is good
1/4 cup lard
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Water as needed.
Mix the first three ingredients, and add water slowly until somewhat stiff dough. Knead until it is smooth. Let sit half an hour or so.
Cut into 8 equal pieces.
Roll each piece with rolling pin, on floured board or counter in a circle.
Fry on ungreased cast iron pan until browned spots, turn and repeat. Put each one on towel, as you are cooking the others.
These are SO much better than store bought, and so simple, you will love them, and they are good just as is.

Potato Chip Casserole - a potluck & BBQ favorite!

1 bag southern style hashbrowns (the square cut potatos)
1 c. sour cream
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of celery soup

mix together, spread in 9x13 pan and bake until golden brown and bubbly

cover top with slices of american cheese in single layer and sprinkle heavily with crushed original lays potato chips on top

return to oven to melt cheese

let cool 10 minutes before serving - can be refrigerated and reheated for next day, but best right out of oven

this will feed quite a few people, great for large families, and cheap! Hope you enjoy!

This sounds so good and reminds me of a breakfast casserole:

OVERNITE BREAKFAST

Layer in a greased 13X9 casserole dish:

1 bag of tater tots
1 and 1/2 pounds of browned sausage
1 and 1/2 cups shredded cheese

Mix together and pour over Tots mixture:

1 dozen eggs
2 and 1/4 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Refrigerate overnite. Next morning Mix together and spread on casserole:

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk

Bake in a 300 degree oven for 90 minutes (or until set in the center)
Serves 15

Morel Mushroom season is here!

If you're lucky enough to find some morel mushrooms, soak overnight in salt water, cut into 1/4's or halves depending on size, dip in beaten egg, and roll in finely crushed saltine crackers. Fry in 350 degree oil or fat until golden brown. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with salt to taste. Make sure that the mushrooms you find are hollow inside, false morel's that are poisionous are solid inside. I know this recipe is pretty simple, but it's one of my favorite things to eat in the spring! Happy mushroom hunting!

O.K.

I served this at a republican phone bank last fall. The reasons why I was there were because I had gotten permission to "ad lib" the state party script to include a request to vote for our local Ron Paul endorsed candidate, and they were willing to give me a "NObama" t-shirt free of charge. Anyway, it went over big, everyone loved it...

Pace Setter Texas Caviar

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 cup Medium Pace Picante Sauce

Combine all ingredients, cover, chill at least two hours or up to 24 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain. Serve with tortilla chips as a dip. Yum!

Depression cooking channel

on Youtube. With Clara. She went through the last BIG depression. She has a bunch of depression cooking recipes posted! :)

Obama = O.ne B.ig A.ss M.istake A.merica

I watched that

and I was not impressed

The food didn't look too good,

but it was a lot of fun from the historical perspective. I enjoyed the stories she told as she chopped onions.

So.

Others might be. There are A Lot of videos posted. More than one to choose from.

Obama = O.ne B.ig A.ss M.istake A.merica

I apologise

I did not mean to come off so short... I should have said I was dissappointed. Yes, many here may go to YouTube and watch depression cooking videos... I did, and I was not impressed.

But I bet there is something YOU make that I would be impressed with, not that impressing me is the point... it is NOT. Anyone can go to YouTube and post videos of someone elses recipe.

Now.. I'm going to give you one of my coveted recipes. I found this one in a book called Green Medicine out of print, published in the 1950s, it was written by the editor of Better Homes and Gardens who spent a summer traveling with pharmaceutical company botanists as they made discovery on medicinal plants.. It's called Chop, and I'll look up the name of the reasercher who gave this recipe in the book... he's some big time Dr., like Dr. Livingston, anyways, this is what he eats in the deep dark forests:

I chicken or other meat, 3#

Chop one onion, cook in small amount of oil over med heat until translucent.. add 1 can coconut milk, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1 tablespoon curry powder.. i chopped tomato9e, add chicken and 2 cups water, cook 1 hour, serve over rice.. it's easy, simple and the best curry I have ever had, EXCEPT.. there's a master chef on main street in Fort Bragg CA.. Nit's... her curries are outstanding... but for a simple delishous curry Chop is really good!

Do you have a little personal recipe to share?

"Poor man's dinner"

"Poor man's dinner"
Feeds 1-2 (depending on how hungry you are)

1 can of black beans
1 clove of garlic
1/2 white onion
1 bell pepper (red or green)
2 oz olive oil
hot sauce to taste
salt to taste

Chop the onion and pepper into smaller pieces and saute in olive oil on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for 2-3 more. Turn the heat to medium-low, drain the black beans and add them to the pot. Heat for 5-7 minutes then add salt and hot sauce to taste. I usually use tapatio salsa picante or sriracha hot chili sauce. You can add sausage in during step 1 if you feel like it.

Not the most exciting meal, but it takes 10 minutes to cook, is high in fiber and vitamins, descent protein, and best of all costs about $3.

"The sinews of war are infinite money" ~ Cicero

"The sinews of war are infinite money" ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

I use the same recipe for Black beans and rice, only...

I would add 2 tbs Raw cider vinager, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp basil...

My favorite fish recipe

1 lb white fish like cod or tilapia
1/2 lb bacon
1 cup scallions
lemon (real lemon not that crap in a bottle)
1 pt heavy cream

Fry the bacon in a skillet. When done crumble it up.
Dredge the fish in flour and pepper, then fry the fish in the bacon grease. Transfer to platter. Turn down the skillet heat to low. Add lemon and cream to drippings in pan, keep stirring til thickened, do not let cream curdle, approximately 2 minutes.
Pour sauce over fish then sprinkle bacon and scallions on the top. Yummy.

Barbeque Sauce

This is an unusual sauce for those who really don't like the heavy molasses and artificial smoke flavors of the commercial sauces.

One 36 oz bottle of catsup.
One catsup bottle of water.
1/3 cup of Worchestershire Sauce.
1/3 cup of cider vinegar.
1/3 cup of brown sugar.
1 TBL chili powder.
1 TBL celery seeds.
1/2 tsp salt.
A few shakes of Tobasco Sauce, to taste.

Dump it all in a pan, stir, bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. When it boils, turn the heat to low, simmer for three or four minutes. Cool.

This sauce is great on beef, pork or chicken. Cold, it even works as a seafood sauce. The extra keeps refrigerated in a bottle for weeks.

My Mom found this recipe on a calendar in the early 1950's and my family has been using it ever since.

BOHICA!!

Try replacing the catsup for apple sauce

heavenly!

Your recommendation

has distinct possibilities!

Daily Paul cookbook

~

re the comment at the bottom of this thread:

I wrote Michael about this idea a few weeks ago
On April 11th, 2009 The Granger says:

I suggested to him that he put together a Daily Paul cookbook: Recipes by of and for the Ron Paul rEVOLution...

If Michael is interested in producing a cook book to help sustain the Daily Paul, I would be willing to help. I am not a computer person so I don't have a blog or even a MySpace page worth looking at (except for the picture of the Daily Paul calendar my friend put on for me).

    Hope you run with this idea, Granger! ... Michael could use the support, and we would be carrying on the grand tradition of producing a cookbook ... started by our own first lady, Carol Paul ... I would not mind helping with any typesetting and could get a good price on the printing ... I am sure others would also lend a hand. ~ wiz

I hope Michael runs with the idea photoshopwiz

I have been wanting to do this much longer than when I made the suggestion to Michael.

How wonderful would it be to have permission to have Carol and Ron write the forward and add a few recipes!! I also think the recipes for freedom and liberty should be included, and photographs, Tuma and Bear toons...

Michael will need a cookbook team.

It would be good to try to get the book done by August so it can be promoted for Christmas sales.

I can provide lists for measurements, tips, spice and herb charts, calorie counters and much more. I am a certified seus chef with the American Culinary Federation and I have taken a course at UCLA extension on writing and promoting cook books. I have the complete libraries of American Culinary Institute, Johnson and Wales, and State Funded Culinary cookbooks and much much more (I am a garden manager, fruit, vegetable and ice carver, who is now researching Chinese medicine for creating cannabis recipes... because I see NOTHING medicinal in hemp brownies... all that sugar! How is THAT healthy?

I hope that if Michael decides Daily Paul cookbook is a good idea, he will allow me to be on the team to help. I LOVE cookbooks and I know this would become a favorite just looking at the thread and the recipes here!

I'm excited about it!

Have you ever taken a frozen banana and juiced it in a champion juicer? It's the best ice cream! Hits the spot!

The cannabis recipes

should be a future best selling cookbook!.

I keep trying to vote this down on my site but it always pops up back to the most viewed

These guys use like a half pound in their recipes
Don't watch if you don't have any at home ' cause it'll make you chronic

www.Umake.it - The online resource for the Hand Made Society

Again, I don't use the stuff

Again, I don't use the stuff myself, but a 'pot' cookbook would be a top seller at this time... just coming from the perspective of capitalizing on Pineapple Express and the other stoner movies that have been big hits recently.
