Rather than go out to eat at a restaurant, save some money and eat at home. You could also microwave it. Also check out [WWW]cookiwiki for a cooking-based wiki.

Janelle's [WWW]MN State Fair Deep Fried Cheese Curds recipe (Not exactly like those at the fair, but close!)


Mix batter (adding beer a bit at a time) until it's a thick liquid consistency. Coat cheese curds in batter and drop into oil (about 375 degrees) about 5 at a time. Cook curds for about 1 minute (until they start to turn golden) and place on paper towel covered plate. Enjoy!

Dill Pickles

Place the cut cucumbers in a quart jar that has a lid (such as a mason jar). Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour the mixture over cucumbers and refrigerate one day before serving. They’ll last for about a week.

Banana Nut Bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir the bananas and eggs together in a large bowl. Add the sugar and mix thoroughly. Combine the flour, salt and soda in a separate bowl. Stir to combine, and then add the dry mixture to the large bowl. Stir everything together, and add the chocolate and/or walnuts last. Grease a bread loaf pan (or line with parchment paper) and bake for about 50-60 minutes. Test with a toothpick to make sure it has baked all the way through. Makes one loaf.

Note: I wasn't sure of the best way to go about this, or if it's even a good idea for the wiki. but sinice many people are too lazy to cook for them selves, I figured i'd have a place for good, easy to cook recipes. i'll add some stuff when i get home. we could also have a page on cooking, although i'm not sure how useful that would be.arlen

I just want to comment and say what a cool idea! I have tons of my own recipes on my computer that I will glady share. - AshleyOrsaba

Oh! I'm excited! I have a bunch of good recipes to share!Users/LizaAbeja

2005-02-18 17:43:39   There have been a number of community cookbooks made in Davis. (I've got a Valley Oak one in my kitchen) Perhaps given the number of recipes that could be contributed each one should have its own page linked from here. Would it be worthwhile to have them all share a common format for the title? Maybe "Recipe:Name". Does a new template page for recipes need to be made? —JasonAller

2005-02-18 18:44:39   I like Jasons formatting idea. that way people can comment on individual recipies —ArlenAbraham—— 2005-02-18 19:42:24   I agree.... I was actually thinking about this earlier, while nowhere near a computer (oops, obsession). If people really do put up all their nifty swell recipes, the page will be huge. Plus, if we have individual pages for each recipe, we can add photos. —SummerSong

2005-02-18 20:52:58   technical question: for sub pages, do they need have the same parent name as the page they're going on? like recipes:name, or is it recipe:name? —ArlenAbraham

I don't think that either way is better; it's important that they're all the same, though. It sounds to me that if a page says Recipes:Ghetto Chicken (for example) then there would be multiple recipes for Ghetto Chicken on the page. Alternatively, Recipes:Ghetto Chicken makes sense because the page it links to is called Recipes. In other, totally unrelated news, Miriam just fell over. Oops. —SummerSong

My suggestion: get this page big, THEN make sub pages titled "Recipe: Whatever". —PhilipNeustrom

2005-09-19 18:46:51   Just bringing this page back up into the Recent Changes list in hopes that some more crazy super awesome recipes will be added by you wiki folks. —VivianPham

2006-01-11 11:03:26   here is a cooking tip: chewing gum while chopping onions will prevent you from tearing up... you dont want to look like a baby when you are trying to impress a hot date with your fancy italian casserole do you? —BlakeHarrison

2006-01-11 15:37:03   Another onion tip: use a sharp knife. That way, you'll slice the onion cells apart rather than crush the walls together. As an added bonus, it will be easier to chop, too! —JudithTruman

2006-03-04 01:27:14   To be honest, i have tons of recipes, as i have cooked/prepared over 80% of my meals since i came up to Davis...i'll post more soon. —MatthewTom

2006-03-23 15:49:24   Umm... one correction: Egg in a Basket is not the same as Toad in the Hole - the egg/basket thing is an egg fried in bread, while toad/hole is sausages baked in batter. Thanks :) —PeterTurner
