Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

spaghetti

1.buy any brand of spaghetti you prefer, i usually buy the whole grain spaghetti because it has more fiber
2. fill a large size pot of water and place on burner. then set the burner to the highest heat setting possible (unless u have a gas stove)
3. give about 15 minutes for water to come to a complete boil.
4. once boiling, add the spaghetti to the pot, also add some oil to the water so the spaghetti doesnt stick to the bottom.
5. stir occasionally for the next 20 minutes.
6. sample the pasta from time to time to see how soft it is.
7. drain the water out of the pot
8. add sauce and garlic salt (or just salt if u prefer)

if u want meatballs, i suggest buying the frozen ones, and throwing them in the microwave for 5 minutes.

for garlic bread, i just buy the frozen TEXAS TOAST and heat it up in the toaster.

(thats right, i can cook.. LOL)

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

If you want to make a nice dinner for your lady, or if your just trying to screw a girl you're making dinner for.....here you go...................

Stuffed and Roasted Sirloin
Difficulty Scale: 8/10
Prep Time: 30-40min
Cooking time: 40-50min

This one is just as much about presentation as it is taste. I made this for my ex for Valentine’s Day a year and a half ago and this is all from memory, so bear with me.

What you need:

Two 10-12oz. Sirloins
Fresh Garlic (about four cloves)
Fresh Baby Spinach
1 Package Boursin Cheese
Sun Dried Tomatoes
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Virgin Olive Oil
Meat Mallet
Worcestershire Sauce
Strings (Just for you YounGLemoN)

Make sure you also plan what starch and vegetable you are going to serve. I did a simple garlic mashed potato (about eight boiled red skin potatoes, add about 4 cloves garlic, quarter cup ranch dressing, sea salt and pepper), and asparagus sautéed with butter, sea salt and garlic.

Preheat your oven to 400*

First thing you are going to do is flatten the meat. I suggest you do one sirloin at a time. But the meat between two pieces of cellophane, so that when you hit it with the mallet, blood doesn't go flying. Proceed to beat that **** like you're Ike and the meat is Tina. You want to flatten it out to about a 1/4 inch thickness. While you’re flattening you want to try and flatten it out so that the steak is more elongated than it is wide.

Once you have both pieces of meat flattened out, you are going to start to dress it. Take a butter knife and spread a layer of the Boursin Cheese across one side of both pieces of meat. Next you are going to mince your garlic cloves, and put that on top of the Boursin Cheese, then drizzle a bit of Worcestershire Sauce and add a bit of sea salt and pepper. Now you are going to add a bed of baby spinach and the sundried tomatoes. Add as much as you would like but make sure that the meat is at the very least covered with the spinach.

No comes the tricky part. You are going to roll both pieces of meat up (separately). Make sure that they are rolled up as even as possible. Once everything is rolled you are going to tie it with the string to keep it together. Now you are going to take a SHARP serrated knife and trim off the excess meat from each end.

What you should be left with is something that looks like a meat jelly roll, or swiss cake roll if you will.

No you are going take a glass roasting pan and put a little olive oil in the bottom to prevent any sticking. Put your meat in the pan. Drizzle a little olive oil and Worcestershire on top. Lastly, add a little sea salt and pepper.

Stick it all in the oven for approximately 40-50 min. Meat should be medium rare to medium when done. Make sure you pay close attention, and use a meat thermometer if necessary.

When the meat comes out of the oven, you are going to slice each roll into 1-1.5" slices. Lay down a bed of baby spinach on a serving dish, and put sliced potions on bed and serve.

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

Step 1: Drink lots of beer
Step 2: Everything tastes good now

Or....

Cheesburger Macaroni

Ingredients:
1 lb of elbow macaroni
1 lb hamburger
1 can double cheddar cheese sauce

Directions:
Brown hamburger
Boil noodles
Once noodles are soft, add hamburger and cheese sauce.
Cook a little longer until it is hot
Enjoy

Tomato Hotdish
Same as above, but instead of cheese sauce, use 2 cans of tomato soup and 1 can of diced tomatoes.

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

Blue Moon Chicken:

Ingredients:
4 Chicken Breasts
6-pack of Blue Moon
2 or more oranges
Rosemary

Place Chicken in ziploc baggie, pour enough Blue Moon to cover the chicken. Sprinkle in a little rosemary. Squeeze 2 oranges over the chicken. Squeeze lightly to mix everything up (or shake some) Seal and place in bowl or pan(to prevent leakage) and put in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 1/2 hours (the longer the more flavor). When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°. Remove chicken from marinade and place on a baking sheet or pan (non-stick). Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until chicken is white and juicy in the center (using a meat thermometer is best, 165°+ its okay to eat)

You can also grill the chicken if you'd like.

Serve with whatever sides you want and Blue Moon beer and enjoy.

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

EZ Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Breast pounded out
roll of sliced ham, slice of swiss
1 egg - scrambled, or egg beaters
bread crumbs
non-stick spray

Place slice of swiss and ham in center of chicken, roll like a fat a** blunt, use toothpicks to keep it rolled. Dip it in the egg. Dip it (or sprinkle) in bread crumbs until fully covered. Place on cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick. Bake in 350* oven for about 20 mins or until cooked through. This one is great for a date at your place. Side dish to follow.

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

Rosemary New Potatoes

10-12 of those small red potatoes
1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary(on every spice rack in the world)
1 teaspoon minced garlic(get it pre-minced in the produce section)
2 pinches salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Wash potatoes, cut into 1/4s
In large bowl, mix potatoes, rosemary, garlic, and oil. Just toss it around with your hands, you want to get everything evenly coated.
Place the potatoes on a non-stick sprayed baking sheet. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the potatoes. Bake at 350* until the corners/edges are brown.

This and the chicken go well with a light red like pinot noir or a flavorful white like fume blanc.

Re: teh bachelor's cookbook

This one's for LOVELEE

Stuffed Bell Peppers

3 large bell peppers( I don't use green, but they are the cheapest)
1 lb ground beef
1/2 medium white onion, diced in small pieces
1 small can tomato paste
cumin, lots of cumin
1 tablespoon minced garlic
salt
1 small can Rotel chiles and tomatoes
shredded cheese
non-stick spray

Start to brown beef in a large skillet. As it starts to turn brown, add tomato paste, onion, and garlic. Turn to a slow simmer, and stir every few minutes.

Wash the peppers. Cut long ways(from stem to button). pull out seeds and that white soft stuff that looks like foam. Cut out any remaining stem, but be careful to leave the sides high so the stuffing will stay in.

When the beef mix has reduced some, add the cumin and salt to taste. I use about 2 tablespoons of cumin and 2 or 3 teaspoons of salt.

When the beef mix is no longer "soupy", scoop it into the insides of the bell peppers. Arrange the bell peppers on a sprayed cookie sheet with some space between them.

When they are all on there, spray the peppers down with a good coat on non-stick. This will help the peppers cook.

Cook at 350* until the skin on the sides of the peppers starts to wrinkle some.

When they are there, pull them out and put a spoonful of rotel on top of each pepper, then sprinkle some cheese on top. Put them back in the oven till the cheese is melted.
