    Default Ask Malia: Cooking advice

    Hehe... I love to cook!

    If you have any cooking questions or want the BEST recipe for something, ask me -- chances are, I can tell you. Very often I have the recipe that beats the competition and can warn you against cooking pitfalls. I read cooking magazines and try many different recipes for many varieties and styles of dishes.

    If you are trying something for the first time and don't want to mess up, or if you want to improve on something you never get right, I want to help.

    JUST ASK ME!

    Hey Malia,

    I have to come up with and prepare food this afternoon that has anything to do with rabbits. What are your suggestions?

    I suggest you stop right there. Rabbits are adorable and not for your consumption.

    Just kidding. They ARE adorable (and tasty), but here's a rabbit recipe that's great (if it's too simple, just ask me for my rabbit stew or pot pie recipe):

    Sweet, Tender Rabbit
    =============

    1 boneless rabbit
    Pot of salted, boiling water (just eyeball - pot should be a soup kettle or something you might boil pasta in)
    2-3 large onions, chopped
    2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
    apple juice, preferably the fresh, organic variety
    2-3 apples, cored and quartered
    salt and pepper, to taste

    Bring water in pot to a boil and add salt. Add rabbit, and boil for 30 minutes.

    Remove rabbit from boiling water (be careful, it's hot) and place rabbit parts in a casserole dish (*optional: grease dish with cooking spray or better yet, butter).

    Salt and pepper rabbit, to taste.

    Add onions and garlic to the pan, all around the rabbit. Assemble apple quarters around the rabbit, as well.

    Pour apple juice over rabbit, until just covered.

    Place in preheated 325 F oven, until meat is tender (about 2 hours). Occasionally check rabbit and move pieces around if necessary and if liquid is almost gone add some more apple juice.

    This is delicious served over buttered rice or with mashed potatoes (or boiled/roasted red potatoes). For a treat, make mashed sweet potatoes as a side.

    Oh, easy. Casseroles, casseroles, casseroles. But damn good casseroles. Nothing gross or bland.

    Do you have any diet limitations? I can give you some recipes for standbys that you'll love. Examples:

    Chicken pot pie (make it in a giant casserole dish and then eat it through the week, and to save time don't make it with a bottom crust, just add biscuits on top)

    Italian sausage spinach pie

    Greek lemon chicken pie with phyllo

    Shepherd's (or cottage) pie (this one is the fastest to make)

    Arroz con pollo (Mexican chicken and rice with olives and mushrooms and spicy sauce)

    And there are, of course, more. Just let me know which catch your fancy.

    If you don't want casseroles, I suggest something like lasagne (another casserole haha) or manicotti/stuffed shells. VERY EASY.

    Recipes coming if asked for!

    Oooh good idea! I usually eat some variation of brown rice w/ stir fried veggies and fish or chicken. Do you have any recipes that make use of fish & brown rice?

    Hi Malia.

    The people here in Maryland think I'm nuts when I tell them that mama used to make a German meal that was sausage, sauerkraut, and a brown bread that came from a can.

    I swear the canned bread exists, but no one believes me.

    Have you ever head of it?

    Yes, I have. Here's a link to where you can buy it. I've seen it with raisins or none.

    LINK:
    Brown Bread in a Can available at The Vermont Country Store


    RECIPE (I found this online and it passes my "gross vs. good" test, but I haven't tried this one. Also I couldn't find a recipe with sauerkraut and sausage with the canned bread, but maybe this'll do?):

    German Sausage and Sauerkraut

    Serves 4

    Sausage is tucked into this seasoned sauerkraut and baked until the flavors are blended. Serve with pumpernickel bread and spicy applesauce, followed by ginger snaps for dessert.


    1 jar (16 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
    1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1/2 cup chopped red onion
    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1 teaspoon caraway seeds
    1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
    1 pound smoked German sausage of your choice, sliced


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients in a 2-1/2-quart casserole dish lightly coated with cooking spray or oil and mix well. Cover the sausage with sauerkraut.

    Cover the dish and bake until heated through, 35 to 40 minutes.
