My Favorite Recipes

Here is one of my favorite recipes:

Creamy Asparagus Soup

2 Lbs   asparagus (peel the spears with a vegetable peeler if they are thicker than 1/2 inch.)
3 Tbs   butter
2  small leeks, white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise and sliced thin
3-1/2 cups   chicken broth
1/2 cup   peas (peas give the soup a subtle sweetness and a boost of green)
2 Tbs   grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup   heavy cream
1/2 tsp   lemon juice

Cut tips off asparagus spears and chop stalks into 1/2-inch pieces. Melt 1-1/2 tablespoons butter in Duch oven over medium-high heat. Add asparagus tips and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender (about 2 minutes) set aside.

Add remaining butter, asparagus, leeks, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to empty pot and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until vegetables are soften (about 10 minutes).

Add broth to pot and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-los and simmer until vegetables are tender (about 5 minutes). Stir in peas and parmasean.

Puree soup in blender in 2 batches and return to pot. Stir in heavy cream, lemon juice, and asparaghus tips and cook until heated through (about 2 minutes). Season with salt and pepper. Serve.

Soup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 2 days.

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Makes 12 halves of delicious deviled eggs. If you don't like onion, omit it. If you like a little more or less sweet add more or less sugar.

Re: My Favorite Recipes

This recipe takes only about 10 minutes from start to finish and is another family favorite.

Basic Microwave Brownies

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Beat together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla about 1 minute, until light.

1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter.
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup nuts (optional)

Add butter. Mix in flour and cocoa at low speed. Stir in nuts. Spread evenly in an 8 inch square dish (greased). Microwave on high for 6 minutes. If your microwave does not have a rotating plate in the bottom of it, you will need to rotate the dish 1/4 turn every 2 minutes. Cool before cutting. Rich and delicious!

Note: You can also add chocolate chips instead of nuts or with the nuts.

Re: My Favorite Recipes

U can also make a killer broth for gravy, stuffing and the like with the gibblets, gizzard, neck etc.  Save the meat for the main dish and use the bits and pieces for the broth.
