I decided to take pics as I made onion rings a few nights ago. These are incredibly easy, and also very yummy if you, like me, prefer onion rings without all of that thick breading surrounding them.

And I also wanted to check out the new scrapbook. Uploading and organizing from there was really easy. And supposedly this will keep the pictures from being huge...so, fingers crossed!

Onwards! )

I've been trying to find a good onion ring recipe for over a year. I don't get to make them too often because they make such a mess + time consuming since you can only cook a few at a time because of the batter.

My previous favorite was using a 7-Up batter (soda+flour+baking soda, I think), but they cooked so fast that the onion inside didn't cook as much as I would have liked.

New fav recipe:

1 med onion. Cut the rings really thin, as thin as you can get them. Remove the few smallish rings, then put a break in the rings. Soak them in buttermilk (or a cup of milk+teaspoon of vinegar) for about 20 minutes. Dunno if the time matters much. Or even if it has to be buttermilk

Then I get a cup and a half of flour and mix in some spices (garlic&onion powder, chili powder, salt, etc).

Shake off milk and dunk in the flour. Coat well. I stacked them all on a plate, then transferred to another plate to get rid of as much loose flour as possible.

Heated oil to a notch past medium. I used half a thing of oil.

Toss all the onions in at the same time. (First time I did this, I got oil everywhere, like in a perfect circle around the pot, so find a way to lower them all in, or get a very deep pot. If they don't all go in at same time, they will cook really fast. Like 30 seconds for a single one.

Stir them around and try to turn them as best as possible until they start to turn brown. Took about 3-4 minutes. Scoop them out and put on a papertoweled plate. Sprinkle with some seasoning if you want. I love Lowry's Seasoning salt.


Mom says I am limited to doing this one time a month because of the mess *pouts*
Might try to take pictures next time

One of the winter traditions at my house is to make fudge with my mom.

And, as usual, I ran to get my camera.

My name is Amy, and this has been the longest day of my life


Rewind to earlier today. Kitchen. Flour and dough, everywhere. Well, not everywhere, but damn close!
Tip: When making dough, don't be stupid like me and add an extra cup of water!
I used the breadmachine to make some dough for dinner rolls. I had to stop the damn thing 30 minutes early because it was oozing dough everywhere. Was afraid I would run out of flour as I tried to get it so it would stop sticking to me!!
After I finally got the dough into rolls and raising in the oven, I took a break to hop on the computer. I was || close to going insane at the mess. (fortunately, both parents were gone at the time)
I sent an e-mail to [livejournal.com profile] michelleann68 about the attacking dough, and she wrote me a little drabble that had me giggling and gave me some added strength to go tackle the mess. Here's the H/W drabble she wrote me: http://michelleann68.livejournal.com/39067.html

I had the dough raise for almost an hour and bake for about 40 minutes. It took me all that time to clean off the cutting board that I used, to scrape out the breadpan, and wip away all the dough from inside the machine, by the heating element. I could have made 3 or 4 more rolls with all the dough I tracked down.

And after all that...guess what? They tasted decent! Bit dry, but not bad! Mom and Dad were leery of eating them, but they enjoyed them as well, hehe :)

Now, I want to do it again, if only to think 'OMG! This is easy when done right!!'

My arms are sore. I was shooting my BB gun with Dad earlier and I have the hardest time cocking it (whoever laughs at that owes me a drabble! :P). I'm a decent shot with it, but I miss my old one even though the sites were screwy and I had to aim down and to the right of my targets. Got so use to shooting that way. Hard to actually 'aim' at the target now lol.

After today, I was starting to wish I had been scheduled to work 5 hours. At least I would get 50 bucks out of it and be spared--*points in general direction of kitchen*
