    I've collected 315 or 320 recipes. Now pictures...PICS are what's needed! I have about a dozen. 

    If anyone would like to volunteer to test and photograph recipes, please let me know. I'd like the book to be more than just text.

    And the pictures can be of anything, but they just have to be pictures that *you* have taken. Just to be safe and all. I mean, hell, I could use pics of kraft dinner, top ramen, you name it. Whip out those cameras, ladies!

    not that bad, actually. You use the back on a spoon and a butterknife. Not that hard. I only put in that much detail for the pic. I dont normally put that many scales on it. And just put an extra blob of dough where the eyeball goes. Plus, I had dd help me put dough in places I dont normally do it, because she is much better at the presentation thing. Its store bought pie dough. With an extra piece here and there.

    i used to cut a slit where the gills went....dont do it. All the juices bubble up there, and you get a soggy spot. Looks like shit. Go ahead and seal the whole thing really tight, no holes poked in it.

    I have a couple recipes I know I. have photos for, they're just on the downstairs computer and it's been fucking impossible to get 5 quiet minutes alone to load them up here. We're down a beastie for a couple of days so I can get my ass in gear and upload them.

    Uhm, I think I'll have to pass on that one, @undercoverbanana! Lol. If we can get this cookbook together first, then perhaps we could do something related to homemade detergents, scrubs, lotions, etc etc?

    These are pretty easy and I will send pics as soon as I can unless someone wants to make them and take pics before I get to it.

    Butter Pecan Snowballs with Rum Sauce

    Ingredients for snowballs:

    Butter Pecan ice Cream

    Crushed Pecans

    Ingredients for Sauce

    1 cup dark Karo syrup

    1 cup Brown Sugar

    1 cup heavy whipping cream

    1/2 stick butter

    4-5 tablespoons dark rum

    Directions

    Make snowball (scoop) sized balls of Butter Pecan ice cream and roll them in crushed pecans. Put on cookie sheet or muffin tins and freeze for later.

    When you're ready to serve, boil Karo Syrup and brown sugar for 5 mins

    remove from heat, add remaining sauce ingredients and stir until butter melts.

    Serve warm over ice cream balls.

     

    **Side note, I have an idea for these that I haven't tried yet.  You could probably make them "tropical" by rolling the ice cream balls in pecans and coconut and using malibu for the rum and topping with whipped cream and cherries (or pineapple).  Or even using coconut ice cream or sorbet mixed with the butter pecan.

    I'm still down for touching up the pics if they need it!  As long as they aren't *too* blurry, I can hopefully work something out.

    I would cook and photograph the recipes myself, but I can't cook.  DH, who is a former chef, might be interested, but it'll take some convincing and a recipe he thinks sounds good lol

    Dh has a degree in Culinary Arts.  Why is it so hard for them to just make something simple?  Alls I want is a pork chop dammit.    Fancy stuff not needed.  @RuralRebellion

    Ironically, even though I've cooked professionally, I prefer simpler recipes. Probably because one or two pot meals mean less dishes to wash.

    Oh DH cooks simple most of the time.  Sometimes he has the urge to "create".  I just meant he was the only one between  us who CAN cook.

    BOOYAHZZZ!!!! My dd had to come up with a marinara/pizza/spaghetti sauce asap, Because the new chef doesn't know how to order shit. and she used mine. My recipe. @curious has the recipe, but dd adapted it for massive servings at the hotel. The new hotel sauce is my sauce, and dd got credit for it. Sorry, got no pics, she was working.....my sauce is now the official marinara sauce at the Hilton on NASA rd. 1 in Houston.
