CASBAH CHICKEN OR TURKEY
1-1/4 cups cooked chicken/turkey meat, cut into chunks 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil 2 cloves garlic, sliced very thin 4 scallions, white and light green parts, sliced large 1 cup chicken broth/stock 1/4 cup white wine 1/4 teaspoon sage 1/2 teaspoon thyme pepper to taste 1 tablespoon ginger, grated 4 pieces bacon, fried crisp but not overdone, and crumbled large 6 pitted dates, cut in thirds 1/4 cup sliced almonds
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and scallions and cook just till wilted (not brown). Pour off the oil, leaving the scallions and garlic, and add the stock, wine, sage, thyme, pepper, and ginger. Adjust the heat as needed so the mixture is simmering, and simmer 10 minutes. Add the bacon, chicken, and dates, and cook just till heated through. If needed, add a little water. Remove from heat, add almonds, stir, and serve. Serves 2. Goes well with rice.
2 Tbs butter, melted 2 eggs (or Egg Beaters equivalent) 1-16 oz. can cream-style corn 1 cup sour cream (fat free works great) 1 cup frozen corn 1 green bell pepper, chopped fine 1 onion, chopped fine 1-9 oz. box corn muffin mix
Melt butter and beat eggs. Combine all ingredients together, adding the muffin mix last. Pour mixture into greased 8" x 8" pan. Bake at 375° for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned.
Iranian omelet with vegetables and meat 1 large onion 1 stalk of leek (only use the white and light green parts) 3 - 4 spring onions 1 pound (500 grams) ground lean beef (best if you mince a nice piece of meat yourself) 4 ounces (125 grams) chopped spinach 2 parsley twigs, finely chopped Salt and freshly ground black pepper (from the pepper mill) 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder 6 eggs 2 ounces (60 grams) butter Finely mince onions, sauté in 1/2 ounce of butter, add finely cut (in rings) leek and spring onions (cut into 1/8 inch - 5 mm) pieces. Separately brown ground beef When vegetables are soft, add ground beef, spinach and parsley. Immediately season with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Let everything cool slightly. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add meet/vegetable mixture to the eggs. Mix well. Melt remaining butter in a frying pan and wait until the butter turns slightly brown and has a nutty smell. Transfer the whole mixture from the bowl to the frying pan and form one large patty. Fry for approx. 15 minutes on medium heat. Flip the patty over with the help of a large plate. The plate should just fit into the frying pan and cover the whole patty. Place to plate onto the patty (upside down), wear a kitchen mitten, hold onto the plate tightly and turn the frying pan and plate over (together). You now have the patty in the plate and can slide it back into to frying pan. Fry for another 10 - 15 minutes. Serve immediately (hot) with a side salad. Alternatively, you could bake one side of the patty under the infra red grill of your oven but leave the door open. Tricks: 1. Use the freshest eggs you can find. 2. When using fresh spinach, remove large leaves from stalk. Blanche very quickly in large, hot pan. Place spinach in sieve and press to remove excessive liquid before chopping. Of course you can use frozen, chopped spinach as well. 3. Onions and leek should be sautéed VERY SLOWLY to enable fruit sugar to caramelize. 4. Should you bake the patty under the infra red grill of your oven, make sure to wear kitchen mittens!

FINNISH COFFEE CAKE
Ingredient List 1 cup water 2 sticks margarine salt 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 tablespoons water Solo almond filling 3 eggs
Preparation set these 2 ingredients to boil in a medium saucepan 1 cup of water 1 stick of oleo (margarine)
When it begins to boil take off the heat and add: 1 cup of flour a pinch of salt Mix well and set this aside to cool
Mix together in a medium mixing bowl: 1 cup of flour 1 stick of oleo (margarine), softened 1 teaspoon of vanilla 2 tablespoons water
Mix this together and pat in the bottom of a cookie sheet (the kind with sides) with your fingers. This is the hardest part of the recipe. The longer you work with this mixture the softer and warmer it becomes and the easier it is to work with. Be sure and get it into the corners. It will seem at first that it just can't be done, but don't give up!
Spread the filling over the mixture in the cookie pan. I like the Solo almond filling but you could substitute any Solo filling that you prefer. Maybe try it with the almond and then next time experiment with another flavor.
Now add 3 eggs to the first mixture that you set aside. This is your top and it is very cream puff like. After mixing each egg in one at a time...spread this over the Solo filling. Be careful as the almond filling will come up.
Bake for 55 minutes at 350°.
After it is slightly cooled, I just drizzle and spread with the normal confectioner's sugar frosting on the coffee cake. I usually flavor the frosting with vanilla so as not to make the coffee cake too almondy. (I don't think that's a word?)

Here is another stroganoff variation recipe. My kids will even eat it for leftovers, if there are any left!! They call it "Moms, Strogy.
1 lb beef round steak (or any other type of steak), cut into strips. 2 TBSP flour 1/2 C chopped onion 2 C sliced mushrooms 1-2 TBSP oil 2 small cans, 10 3/4 oz size, or 1 can Family size Cream of Mushroom soup 1 C sour cream 1 12oz pkg egg noodles
Brown steak in the oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add flour to coat the meat, and onion, continue to brown. Add enough water to cover meat, add mushrooms,mixing in well, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding a little more water if it gets too thick. Add cream of mushroom soup and cook until soup is mixed well, and bubbles. Cover, and reduce heat to low, just enough to keep meat/gravy warm. Prepare noodles according to package directions, drain and add butter if desired. When noodles are done, remove meat/gravy from heat, let set for a moment, then add the sour cream, mix well (if the gravy mix is too hot, the sour cream doesn't blend in with the gravy as much, and it will look like it has curdled some, it doesn't taste bad, just looks kind of funny). Serve over noodles.
