Fake Glass

This is what is traditionally used as stunt glass in movies.

1/2 cup water (boiled)
1 cup sugar
5 TBS corn syrup

  1. Combine and boil 6-8 minutes till 310° on a candy thermometer.

  2. Oil a pan.

  3. Pour in pan.

  4. Cool 30 minutes.

  5. Carefully lift from pan and used as desired.

What can you use this for? I had 3 ideas:

  1. You could use it for the windows in a gingerbread house.

  2. You could skip the gingerbread and build the whole house out of it. (imagine how awsome a glass candy house would look!)

  3. You could use it to make some rather interesting edible Christmas decorations to hang on your tree instead of the traditional candy canes. Maybe paint them with food coloring.

I have never tried this recipe but I have had it in my book for many years. If you try it, please post a comment and let me know the results. Maybe supply some tips for working with this stuff or other ideas on what you can use it for.

Italian Pepper Butter for meats

1 stick of butter or margarine
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp italian seasonings
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 TBS soy sauce
1 tsp black pepper
1 TBS spicy brown mustard

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot and simmer over a low flame till the spices are cooked into it.
  2. Pour some into a small bowl and apply to meat, while it's broiling or BBQing, with a small pastry brush.
  3. Throw away what is left in the bowl. Do not use that part again or on cooked meat or you will make people sick.
  4. Pour the rest of what is in the pot over the cooked meat or put on the table in a small bowl.
This is good with chicken, beef, shrimp, just about any meat you would broil or BBQ. It also tastes good when you serve that meat with rice or noodles and put a little on there too.

Fettucini Alfredo

1 pound of linguini (I like that better than fettuccine and it's cheaper)
1 8oz block package of light cream cheese (regular makes it too heavy, fat free won't melt right)
1 stick of margarine
3/4 cup of milk
3/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 tsp chopped garlic (the kind that comes in a jar)
dried parsley (enough to make it look lightly speckled)

  1. Chop up the block of cream cheese and the stick of margarine and place in a medium to small saucepan. Add the milk, garlic, parsley, and grated cheese.

  2. Cook over a low flame stirring constantly till all ingredients are thoroughly melted and blended and smooth. Remove from flame. (it may get thick & clumpy as it cools...don't worry about it)

  3. Cook linguini according to package directions and drain.

  4. Add the sauce and stir till linguini is thoroughly coated.

  5. Serve immediately.

Reheat leftovers in the microwave. Add a little milk and heat 1 minute at a time stirring in between, so it doesn't fry.

You can add things like a can of mushrooms (drained), cooked broccoli, cooked shrimp, etc., to the sauce when it's done cooking, to give it a little more pizazz.
