 Hello all. I know it's been a thousand years since I've posted on here, but I've built up quite a number of recipes to post in the meantime. Here is one that I found on OurChart.com. It's cheap, easy, and very tasty!

1 3-5 lb chicken
1 onion
Olive oil OR melted butter/margarine
Salt & Pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Remove the extra organs and gross stuff from the body cavity. 
3. Rinse off the chicken, inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels.
4. Rub olive oil/melted butter/melted margarine all over, making sure to get under the skin a bit too. 
5. Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper to taste.
6. Cut the onion into four pieces. Put two of those pieces inside the body cavity. Break up the other two pieces and sprinkle them on the bottom of the pan. 
7. Put the chicken in the pan over the onions, breast side down, and roast it for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

The chicken should roast for about 20 minutes per pound, so adjust the time in the oven accordingly. Also, feel free to stick other stuff into the body cavity before you cook the chicken, like a sliced up lemon, fresh parsley or rosemary, etc. I prepared my Thanksgiving turkey with basically this same technique, and everybody loved it!

Subject:Barbeque Sauce recipe
Posted by:inert_virulence.
Time:5:04 pm.
Mood: confused.
Hey folks. This is one of the recipe cards I found in my great-great aunt's mother's card box. Expect many more in the next couple weeks! This sauce is very basic, which means it's really fast, it's really easy, and it's really tasty.

1. 1/2 cup ketchup
2. 2 tablespoons vinegar
3. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
4. 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1. Combine all ingredients.
2. Completely cover meat in sauce.
3. Place under broiler 5 to 10 minutes (may also be done in oven).
4. Enjoy!

I plan on doing some experimentation eventually with this sauce and different kinds of meat. I wouldn't recommend changing it at all for ham though; the flavours are in absolute perfect harmony. I liked it on beef too, but I only had a little, and I haven't tried it on any poultry or lamb or anything. This is simple enough to build off of plenty if one wishes, and I'd love to see any new ideas in comments if people have them.

Subject:Tip for Baking with Chocolate
Posted by:inert_virulence.
Time:10:08 am.
If you've ever made anything with chocolate chips or small chunks of chocolate, you've probably noticed that the chocolate tends to sink down to the bottom of the pan. I've found that if you get a cup, pour some flour in it, and then put in the chocolate chips and mix them around, you'll coat them enough to keep them afloat in the batter. You can just pour the extra flour back into the box it came from. Next step...bake me something.

Subject:Soy Vey Teriyaki Chicken
Posted by:telcontar_ii.
Time:4:12 pm.
This is a really tasty recipe for broiled chicken that even the girl who burns Top Ramen in microwaves can make. It's good and easy. And the teriyaki sauce comes from a company owned by a Japanese/ Jewish couple, hence Soy Vey. What's not to love?

Time:11:50 am.
Mood: rushed.
Alright, this is a little recipe I made up, just because I've made lots of different pasta primaveras in the past. It's really easy to make, and doesn't take much time at all. I made this to go with turkey and potatoes for Easter 2006. Have fun!

Subject:And finally...
Posted by:aenilwen.
Time:11:54 am.
Mood: pleased.
I am posting my recipe for Chicken Divan. This recipe deviates from just about every recipe you can find online. And although all the recipes strictly emphasize that one should not deviate from the recipe... it's lies. Trust me, it's good my way. This is my version of the recipe that my mom altered from her mom's. Craziness, I know.

Subject:Mudder's Milk (non-alcoholic)
Posted by:telcontar_ii.
Time:11:48 pm.
Mood: cheerful.
Stolen from www.serenitymovie.com, this recipe is an alcohol-free version of the mudders milk brewed and served on Canton in Jossverse. Mudder's milk is essentially a liquid bread, beer (in this case sarsaparilla), and protein mix. In the episode "Jaynestown," mudder's milk is portrayed as being... less than tasty. So this is a recipe for brave souls.

Enjoy, if you're brave enough! An alcoholic version of this recipe will be posted some time soon...

Subject:Batter Tip
Posted by:inert_virulence.
Time:10:55 am.
Mood: thoughtful.
When making a batter that uses flour--especially a cake batter--begin and end with the flour. So, while you're mixing, start with flour, mix in the rest of the ingredients (most dry to most wet), and then end with the last bit of flour. It makes the batter much more creamy, and less likely to clump up while it's baking in the oven.

Subject:Beans from a Can: The Edible Version
Posted by:daxius.
Time:10:05 pm.
Have you ever opened a can of black beans, only to go "...oh." and lose all enthusiasm for a meal? I HAVE. And it is not pretty. So this is how I make beans delicious. These are really good with guacamole, either with or without a tortilla. But let's face it, who eats beans without a tortilla?

These are possibly the most amazing cookies EVER MADE (as long as you like chocolate and mint together). They are chocolate with mint and chocolate chips. These are the cookies that got me through finals.
