To Beet or Not to Beet? is No Longer the Question

So here's my sad childhood story. Beets! Growing up, in my house the only person that ever ate beets was my late mother. The thing is … she didn't even try to encourage me or tempt me to taste them. No! SHE JUST ATE THEM ALL! As a kid, there was nothing appealing or appetizing about them. So … like broccoli and figs and other wonderful foods that looked questionable through a child's eyes … I just didn't eat them! Wasn't even curious.



In my adult years, forty plus years ago, I met my husband. Would you believe it? He tells me a similar childhood story, except that both his mom and his dad ate beets. Beets and beets and beets. They just couldn't get enough of em!

Come to find out … beets are good for you! WHAT???!!



Why would our parents keep that a secret? We don't know! So they could have more for themselves?? Seems the only logical explanation!



Nevertheless, we love our parents and thank them for all of the other meaningful secrets of life that they did reveal to us. We'll overlook the best kept beet secret.  :)



Anyway! …. Now that we've learned “the rest of the story”, the question of “To beet or not to beet?” has been answered. We just need to figure out a way to incorporate this awesomely nutritious super food into our diet.



Found a treasure trove of beet recipes at Flipboard, a site where I am experimenting with publishing my own food magazine. (The magazine is called My I Like Eating Channel. Yes it's the same name as my curated content topic board on Scoop.it. I know! I'm not very original and I copy myself a lot!)



Sharing a few recipes from the Flipboard collection that look like they might be very tasty. However, the first share below was actually found elsewhere on the web. It's about beet juice. Did you know that it's drink of champions? Well it is!

As a parent myself, I know that no matter how good veggies may be, it's sometimes hard to get your kids (or yourself) to eat them! Thank the Lord for juice and juicers! Sometimes folks who won't EAT their veggies, don't have too much of a problem with DRINKING their veggies.

You can roast the beets or boil them. Roasting the beets will give them more flavor, but it takes longer and will use more energy than boiling.

A Fall Neapolitan Style Dinner | jovinacooksitalian (Reblog)

Have you ever found a food blogger or food blog that is undeniably magnificent? Several years back I came across this woman's blog and am so happy to find that it is still being published. Her posts not only have great recipes but great food history too!


This one that is being shared as a reblog is perfect because it's for the fall season and it's about Italy, one of those places on my bucket list of "Places to Visit".  Will likely never realize that dream but dreaming about it is a wonderful thing.

Dream Italian?  Think Italian.  Be Italian!


The post begins by giving the reader a quick history of Neopolitan cuisine.  Neopolitan is a cuisine?  Only ever knew it to be a flavor for ice-cream!  In 3 short paragraphs, she took me from ancient Greece and Rome to modern-day Italy and the United States.  Then she set forth an entire Neopolitan dinner, recipes and all, from the first course to the dessert.  Of course, I skipped the courses and went straight to the dessert.  But that's just me!  :)


This blog post is dated 2013.  Liked it then.  Like it now!  The image from her post is an Italian Apple cake.  Isn't it gorgeous?!!

    October is National Pizza Month ~ Let's Celebrate!

    October is National Pizza Month. Let's start the celebration with these fun pizza facts.

    - - "The longest pizza delivery was from Cape Town, South Africa to Sydney, Australia."

    - - "Scientists report that eating pizza once a week can reduce the risk of esophageal cancer. It's the tomatoes and olive oil in the pizza."

    Indian Food - Myth or Fact

    Do you like Indian food? I do! Although must admit, had to acquire a taste for it. My first time trying a so-called authentic Indian dish was at one of those American mall-type food courts, where there are all kinds of restaurants for you to choose from. That probably wasn't the best place for me to get my first taste. Was taken aback by some sort of flavor or spice that my palette was clearly not expecting. It threw me off!

    Later on, when cooking channels became so popular on television, started learning how to prepare Indian dishes. There was the one lady who referred to herself as a “spice goddess”.  Because really it comes to cooking, Indians do know their spices.  No argument.  Her recipes always seemed so simple, easy to prepare, and she explained the herbs and spices she used for flavoring and showed you how to incorporate them into the recipes.  Crush these seeds.  Warm this spice in the pan.  Sprinkle these herbs.  Decided to try Indian food again and was very pleased with the tasting tests.


    Below is a link to a blog post that eliminates common myths about Indian food. Didn't know there were myths but good to know they can be ignored. What were some of the myths?

    • All Indian food is spicy.
    • All Indian food is vegetarian.
    • All Indian food is overloaded with curry.

    Oven-Baked Summer Squash Fries (Should Be in Your Winter Recipes)

    A summer squash has a strong resemblance, in flavor and texture, to a zucchini. You can, in fact, substitute zucchini in this recipe, but it will probably bake a bit more quickly.


    Not sure what the weather is like where you are.  In my city (Austin, TX USA), it's confusingly balmy and breezy, occasionally rainy, comfortably warm with no need for a sweater, and sometimes chilly.  It's climatically perfect! ☺ 

    My friends elsewhere around the USA and the world are still complaining that Old Man Winter has overstayed his welcome and refuses to leave!  This recipe is fabulous no matter what the season of the year is or what kind of weather you're experiencing.  Enjoy!



    Ingredients:


    1 medium summer squash
    2 eggs
    1 ½ cups breadcrumbs (try panko breadcrumbs for a crunchier texture)
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon mustard powder
    Salt and pepper
    Olive oil


    How to Make It:


    Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a large baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.


    Cut your summer squash into wedges. Remove the seeds if they are quite large and set wedges aside.


    Whisk the eggs in a dish and set aside.


    In another dish, combine the breadcrumbs, paprika, mustard powder and salt and pepper.


    Start by dipping the wedges, one by one, into the egg mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. Place each wedge on the greased baking sheet. Continue until all the wedges are done.


    You can bake the wedges as is for about 30-40 (until soft inside and golden brown on the outside) as is, but if you want a more golden texture, drizzle or spray some olive oil on top of the wedges. Flip halfway through baking.


    Serve with ranch or another favorite dip.



    There are many versions of oven-fried squash recipes?  Find more.

    Foodie Friday : Improve Boxed Mac-n-Cheese. Is that possible?

    Anybody who loves their macaroni and cheese would rather be thrown into a cage with starving lions than eat that boxed mac-n-cheese!! UUUGGG!!! YUK!!!


    OK. Being tossed into a cage with starving lions is a bit of an exaggeration. But how many of you have ever had a choice between making your own macaroni and cheese or using the mac-n-cheese in a box and said: “Oh yes! Gimme that box stuff! I love it!”




    Saw a headline (below) about “hacking your mac”.


    Well since it was in the food section, figured it wasn't about a Mac computer, so it had to be about macaroni!  13 ways to make boxed macaroni and cheese taste even better? Well!  Everybody has their own tastes, don't they?  In my humble opinion, speaking as a non-chef or non-official food person in any way, a newbie learning to cook might want to test these ways using the box.  If the end results pass muster, they can adapt some of these ideas and add a twist to a real tried and true homemade recipe.


    My tried and true homemade recipe?


    Prepare 1 lb of elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions


    Pour drained macaroni into a casserole dish. While the pasta is still hot, mix in the following ingredients in this order.

    • 1 lb of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
    • 1 stick of butter
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 can of evaporated milk


    Once all ingredients are thoroughly combined, sprinkle more shredded cheddar cheese on top. (As much as you want.)


    Bake in a preheated oven to 350 degrees F., for about 30 minutes.


    This is how my late mother taught me and was really surprised when watching TV chef Paula Deen's cooking show one day and noticed that she prepared hers the same way. (I varied my mom's recipe a little by adding in chopped onions and bell peppers.)

    World Cuisine: Great Recipes from Around the World (and Texas)

    Have a grocery and gourmet website, specializes in herb and spices.  Often find gems around the web that are reshared in my business pages, Google+ and Facebook.

     

    Though I am a contributor, my articles for HUBPages.com are not food-related but the Food and Cooking section of this website is loaded!!  So I shared some links here too.  Enjoy!




    A handy reference list. Descriptive list of the different and popular dishes from the Philippines that every Filipino family have enjoyed cooking and serving on their dinner table.
    A Taste of the Caribbean: Make Jamaican Patties for Supper!  This is a great recipe for authentic tasting Jamaican Patties; delicious golden pastry filled with curried beef and spices.
    Recipes from the indigenous peoples of French Polynesia and their Marquesas Islands.
    Brawn Loaf, Christmas Cake, Wattelseed Pavlova …



    Biltong – A cured meat that originated from South Africa and often compared to the American jerky.
    East African cuisine is the food of countries such as Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda.

    Greek Tzatziki is a great way to use cucumbers!
    People often mix up oriental cuisines – they mix up Korean food with Chinese and Japanese. In reality, even though the Korean cuisine is partly influenced by Chinese and Japanese cooking, Korean food also has its very own unique taste and cooking techniques.

    In my hub titled 5 Asian Dishes You Can Make at Home (link below), I mentioned my love for the beef kimbap (sometimes also called kimbob). A kimbap is basically the Korean version of the Sushi. It is a rice roll with some fillings wrapped in nori or dried seaweed wrap.

    When in Texas, eat like a Texan. Especially enjoy some of the fusion cuisine, like Tex-Mex. (Fusion cuisine refers to a style of food that combines elements of different cuisines.)

    Taste of the Islands - TV Cooking Show on PBS

    Finally! Singing the Hallelujah chorus. AGAIN!

    This time all the rejoicing is because of a food TV show.

    We relocated to Austin, Texas in 1998 and my mate's first observation about living in this land-locked part of the state was that the city was missing a good Bahamian restaurant or at least some place that serves dishes that look like island food!

    Once we got cable TV hooked up and got settled in, his next complaint was that the #foodie channels didn't have a good cooking show to teach people how to prepare common island meals.

    In 2015, his prayer was finally been answered.






    http://tastetheislandstv.com/chef-irie/Our public television station (PBS) airs a show called “Taste the Islands”. Chef Irie (real name Hugh Sinclair) lives in South Florida but is from Jamaica.

    My mate is from The Bahamas.

    Close enough!





     
    We're both very happy.
    For now.  :)
