Q: Want to help a college-bound boy? Recipes please using a versatile electric fry pan for frying, steaming,…..
boiling, can you bake in them? He’ll have the summer to try them out.

A: About the only thing that’s a little tricky is the baking part. You really need specialized instructions on how to do that, if you’re talking about cakes and puddings:

The rest of the techniques you mentioned can easily be adapted to the electric skillet. Here are a couple simple but delicious recipes:

Chicken Breasts Supreme

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt, pepper, flour
4 slices Monterrey Jack cheese
Half pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
4 strips of bacon, partially cooked
1 tbsp. Salsa — hot, medium, or mild, according to preference
2 tbsp. Sour cream

Fry the bacon until lightly browned but still pliable, and set aside. Sautee the mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter until tender, and set aside. Using a slotted spoon, drain most of the liquid from the salsa and mix with the sour cream.

In a plastic bag, mix two tablespoons of flour with a dash of salt and pepper. Place the chicken breasts in the bag and shake until lightly coated.

Fry the chicken breasts in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. When they are no longer pink in the middle, remove to another platter and drain off the drippings. Return the chicken to the skillet and top with the salsa mixture, half the mushrooms, two slices of cheese, and two strips of bacon.

Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted and the bacon is crisp — 5 to 10 minutes. Makes 2 servings

Fried Apples and Bacon

4 sweet red apples (Jonathans are good), peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
6 slices of bacon
Sugar and cinnamon to taste

Fry the bacon until crisp, then crumble and set aside.

Melt the margarine in the skillet and add the apples. Cook until tender, adding more margarine if necessary to prevent sticking. When the apples are done, sprinkle with sugar and cinammon to taste.

Top with the crumbled bacon and heat for another moment or two. Serves 2.

Q: I need recipes for fried/steamed dumplings and Hot and sour soup?
These are my husband’s favorite appetizers!! If you have personal favorite’s that you have tried, I would greatly appreciate your experience.
I have not done alot of oriental cooking so any suggestions and tips are greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions or tips!

A: Pan-Fried Dumplings

Pot Stickers are Chinese dumplings that are boiled then pan-fried on one side to produce a complimentary soft and crispy crust.

Pork is traditionally used in Chinese dumplings, but you can replace it with chicken, shrimp or vegetables to match your personal taste.

1 cup high gluten flour (or all-purpose flour)
3/4 cup cold water

16 ounces lean pork, finely chopped
1 scallion, finely chopped
1/2 ounce ginger root, finely chopped
2 ounces vegetables (Napa cabbage), finely chopped
1 teaspoon rice wine
1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 dash white pepper
4 teaspoons soy sauce

Dumpling Sauce
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon granulated sugar

To make dumplings, mix together flour and water to form a soft dough. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface, wrap in plastic wrap, and let it stand for 15 minutes. (Pot sticker skins can also be purchased at any Chinese market or major grocery store).

Divide the dough into 20 equal-size pieces and roll each piece into a 5-inch circle called a skin. Spoon a portion of the filling into the center of the skin. Fold the skin over the filling, wet the edges of the skin, and pinch together so the filling is sealed inside.

Steamed Dumplings:
Put dumplings into boiling water and cook for 5 minutes at a full boil. Then, add 1 cup of cold water and boil for anther 5 minutes. Remove dumplings with a draining spoon and serve. Serve with Dumpling Sauce.

Pot Stickers:
Pour 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1/2 cup of cold water into a skillet. Place the steamed dumplings and fry for three minutes, or until one side of the dumpling is golden brown. Serve with dumpling sauce.

Q: Steamed veggie recipes and spices?
Hi–I don’t really like vegetables except for potatoes, but in my 30’s and should probably start eating better.
I got a steamer basket and would like to know what would be some good spices or light sauces to jazz up any sort of veggie besides broccoli and cauliflower (ick).

A: If u steam spinach, cabbage, leeks, asparagus, etc….you should cook salmon or some other FATTY fish (that when you cook it the fat oozes out) and then you should put the fish atop the vegetables and WOW: amazing flavor!!!!

Q: Can I use swiffer wet jet solution on carpet, IN my steam vac? Any home made carpet cleaning recipes?
I’m talking about diluting it with water and putting it IN my Hoover Steam Vac. I used Tide laundry detergent one time when I had just run out of carpet shampoo and needed to clean the carpets in a rush (it was probably the night before Thanksgiving as well) and it worked incredibly well.

Any recipes? I don’t have vinegar to add to any recipes right now.

Thanks, thanks, thanks so much and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

A: I don’t recommend using detergent to clean the carpets. It leaves a soap residue that actually attracts more dirt. Get some white vinegar($2.50 a gallon). Use plain hot water until you get vinegar.
