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!.

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.

without a recipe for marijuana brownies. ;-)

Are those the freakin' kind D4L's always rhapsodizing about?

Oh shutter your photo lens!! lol

I SWEAR they are to die for (and not because of marijuana)! Try 'em for you'll like 'em! (I know...I sound like a frickin' Kix commercial now! lol)

3/4 cup butter, melted
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs

3/4 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, beat well with spoon. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt: gradually add to egg mixture until well blended. Spread in greased 8" square pan. Bake at 350 F for 40 to 45 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. Cool: cut into squares.
Great when warm too with some vanilla ice cream! :-P

awesome!

btw, if this is meant to be, it might have to be a group effort on our part.

Michael may have to just give us his blessing since he's such a busy guy, as stated in his signature thread, "Daily Paul Grassroots Appeal for Help"

and the special recipes for freedom ...

and the special recipes for freedom ... and the recipes for fascism ... and many other political recipes that could be used as chapter lead-ins ... would make it unique and fun! ;-)

Another vehicle for selling liberty?
