Posted:Perhaps you could try my recipe for... wait for it... Katos Spicy Rice Crispies !!!Yep.. not as crazy as it sounds. If youve ever made your own popcorn, its almost exactly the same in terms of method.You will need:1 A cooker 2 1 average size saucepan (Approx 7-8")3 A METAL seive (use plastic like I did the first time and see what happens.. [dont in other words]4 A wooden spoon5 Another saucepan to drain hot oil intoIngredients:Cooking oil (I like to use olive oil - with extra virgins)Plain dry rice (any kind will do)Spices of your choice (although the whole thing can be done with sugar)Method:Place about 1cm (just under 1/2 inch) of oil in the pan.Place the heat on high, put the pan on and let it heat up to the point where you can just about see faint whiffs of vapour rising. (You will also be able to smell it by this point)Put a couple of grains of rice in the hot oil to test.If they just sit there fizzing slightly, the oil aint hot enough.When you put a couple of grains in and they go 'FFFFSSSSHHHHWWWWWWSSSHHHHWWWLE'... the oil is ready.For an average breakfast bowl full, I suggest using about half a cup (perhaps a little less) of dry rice.Put the whole lot into the hot oil and stir viggorously with the wooden spoon. It should go 'FFFFSSSHHHWWLLEFFFSSSHHH... FFFSSHH.. and FFFFSSSSHHHHLLLOOOOOOOFFFSSHH' quite a bit with a full pan load.Most of the oil should dissappear, but keep stirring!The colour will go dark quite quickly, so as soon as you feel the crispies are all done (I estimate about 30 second TOPS), tip the whole bunch into a metal seive and drain the oil out into another pan.Shakyshaky shake shake the hot crispies until you feel you cant get any more oil off. They stay HOT HOT HOT for ages so dont be tempted to taste them straight away!!While they are still hot though, thats the best time I think to put your sugar or spice on.Shake them around a bit longer and put the desired quantity into a cold bowl.They should be ready to gobble within about 5 minutes.Conclusion:I love my spicy rice crispies. They make an ideal munchie snack for those after spinning chilldown sessions. Having them with sugar on in a bowl of ice cold milk (when theyre still warm from the pan) is GORGEOUS too.Incidentally, just thought of an alternative method of shaking exess oil off. No prizes for guessing how.. YUP.. SHAKE THE OIL OFF YOUR RICE CRISPIES IN A PAIR OF STOCKINGS BTB FORWARD 9 BEAT WEAVE OVER THE HEAD DOOHDAAH MOVE THINGY !!!

Posted:Foolproof Pancakes, by Mrs RushThe Basic Mixture (multiply evenly for more pancakes):1 Egg8 Tablespoons Flour (Plain flour probably best here)4 Tablespoons Sugar (If you want sweet pancakes)Pinch salt1 Cup of milk (can be adjusted to suit your preferred consistency)For savoury pancakes, substitute a half-teaspoon of vinegar for the sugar.Mix the egg into half a cup of milk. Add slowly to the flour, stirring continuously. Use the well in the middle method for best results. Mix to a smooth mixture, with minimal beating to avoid an airy mixture. Folding the mixture works quite well.You can use butter or oil in a non-stick pan, but I prefer butter better flavour.Go create your toppings, savoury or sweet. Theres nothing quite like cinnamon and syrup pancakes after a good spinplus, to give your wrists a good snapping action while Poi-ing, make sure you flip the pancakes. Experiment with height and rotation speed a liberating experience, guaranteed...Happy munching and flipping everyone

I usually can only eat what I am in the mood for, and I have yet to find a type/style/food culture that I truly hate, though there are things out there that I wonder "why?" about (chilled monkey brains for example).Lately for me though, I have been in the mood for my homemade soups, quishes, salads and fruit(all fruit is wonderful!).I ***love*** to cook!Crabmeat Quiche1 9 inch pastry shell3 eggs-slightly beaten1 cup sour cream1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce3/4 tbspn salt1 cup freshly shredded cheese, (experiment with what you like, I like swiss and locatelli)1 cup flaked crabmeat or finely chopped1/4 fried onion strips, crunched uppreheat oven to 300 degrees F/ 140 degrees C/ gas 3.Place pie shell in standard 9in round pie dishCombine eggs, worcestershire sauce, sour cream and salt. Mix real well. Fold in cheese and crab meat and onions. Pour into pie shell. Bake 55 to 60 minutes until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Goes very well with a white wine and a romaine salad with balsamic vinagarette dressing.

Posted:Ros, Marmite truly is the food of the gods...However, try this one as well...Take some large buns, hamburger, long rolls or even a small uncut loaf...and steam it in a steamer for a short while (the bigger it is, the longer you steam it).Take it out and using a broad flat knife, squash the bun/s down into a flat piece of heavy,hot, steaming fresh bread, cover in butter (it will melt instantly!) and then slap on as much marmite as possible.This is my favourite "eats" of all time, a great way to finish of a four hour staff session...

Posted:Wow, it's just like the old "What food do you crave after sex" conversation. Anyhoo, I usually get a massive craving for sweets after a hard work out. That or a really big bourbon and garlic marinated steak. Actually, the other day I had a massive craving for a cornish pasty, salt and vinager chips and a bottle of Lilt. So my friend and I wanderd down to a pub called Streets of London..... and they had none of that
Non-Https Image Link
While pasties aren't exactly common in the US, and neither is Lilt, I really don't understand how you can claim to have anything close to a British pub and not have salt and vinager chips. When I asked for them the waitress looked at me like I'd completely lost it. I had my heart set on having some too.

Posted:For those interested, carbohydrates (starches) actually produce the excess bit of energy about 12 to 24 hours after consumption, depending on your metabolism. If you have a big show, eating pasta with a light sauce and some veggies the night before will really kick you into gear!A great recipe for this is Pesto PennePesto sauce:About 1/3 c olive oilAbout 1/4 c finely chopped fresh large leaf basil(if you like) about 1/8 c finely chopped pine nuts.Blend well in processor or with whisk. An awesome idea for keeping this is to put it in an ice cube tray until it freezes. Then put the cubes in a freezer bag for storage. Simply thaw and toss with pasta for easy light meal.Pasta and VeggiesPenne pasta- cooked A nice variety of sliced fresh veggies (I like yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli florettes, red peppers and broken spinach leaves) Melt your pesto cube in a frying pan, toss the veggies in sauce until tender, dish over pasta for a wonderful and light meal. This will carry over and really give you an energy boost the next day! For a little extra boost try fruit salad before and after a spin. The natural sugars kick in pretty quickly and last longer than caffeine or processed sugars, and aren't heavy so they won't slow your body down quickly.For during a spin, if you hate water or the watered down effect ice has on your drink when working out, freeze juice or tea into ice cubes. It flavors the water, or keeps your beverage from being watered down and helps to gently maintain that energy boost!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

I can not believe that that many people spent that much time spouting the merits of vegimite, Bendy.Not to offend any Aussies, but vegimite is the most vile thing that has ever been in my mouth. And the taste doen't go away for like six hours. So if marmite tastes anything like vegimite it is coming no where near my mouth. Seriously, some one needs to get you guys a jar of peanut butter, and quick

Posted:Sickpuppy, I find that the garlic over rides the wonderful flavors and aroma's of the olive oil and basil. If you want it though, I recommend a clove of freshly roasted garlic (bake on baking sheet at 200 in oven for about 15 min)or a touch of garlic paste if you so desire.That was just my recipe for pesto. I've had it with other kinds of nuts too, which isn't for me as I am not a huge nut fan.(that sounded naughty didn't it?

)MMMM falafels...with sour cream!Anyone else a hummus fan out there? Now that is a great protein food for those tired muscles and it is soooo easy to make. Just shove a bunch of rinsed, plump garbonzo beans in a food processor and smooth them out. You can add anything to it for diverse flavor...garlic, black olives, herbs...and it is so amazing with oven-warmed pita bread.(I have alot of gadgets in my kitchen!
