1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  Pinch of salt
1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked
1-1/2 cups shelled pecan halves

2. Edith's Swedish Meatballs

Categories: Beef

Yield: 1 Servings      

      1 lb Ground beef; (lean)
      1    Egg
      3    Stalks celery diced; fine
      1 lg Bell pepper; diced fine
      1 sm Onion; grated
      1    Potato; grated
           Salt and pepper; to taste
           Slightly less than one small can tomato sauce; (8 ounces)  (you do not want the mixture too soupy so add a little at a time)
           Crushed corn flakes mixed with some flour (about 2 tbs flour to 1 c  Crushed corn flakes)

Mix first seven ingredients well. Add tomato sauce a little at a time, mixing well. Mixture should be a little mushy but not soupy, (you can't roll them into balls using your hands). Use two small spoons (such as ice tea spoons) to drop mixture into corn flake mixture. Coat each meatball well. Fry in very hot oil (1/4 inch) in a large heavy skillet until brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels. Note: vegetables can be prepared in a food processor. Enjoy.

This is a meatball recipe that I remember well as a child. It was always such a treat hot or cold. Mother would pack a few cold ones with our school lunch or for camp. This is a little trouble to make, but it makes a wonderful appetizer. Mother grate d the bell pepper flesh off the skin, I prefer to nail it in the food processor, skin and all. Anyway, these meatballs accompanied me on many adventures. They are called "Swedish" because Mother is half Swedish. They are her own, and not from an ethni c recipe. Doe's this mean my mother is not "Ethnical?"

3. Eggplants Stuffed with Rice And Meat

Categories: None

Yield: 1 Servings

12 sm Long eggplants
1/2 lb Lean ground lamb or beef      
   3 oz Rice
   2 tb Finely chopped parsley
   1    Tomato; skinned & chopped
1/2 ts Ground cinnamon OR 1/4 tsp ground allspice
   4 tb Olive oil
         S & P
   1    Lemon ; juice of

EGGPLANT PREP: Cut the stem end just below the hull, which may be removed. Keep the slices to use as corks.

Scoop out the pulp taking care not to break the skin & sprinkle the inside with salt. Leave them inverted in a colander for 1/2 hour to allow the bitter juices to drain away. Rinse & stuff.

STUFFING: In a bowl, knead together the meat, rice, tomato, parsley & spices. Stuff the eggplants 3/4 full to allow room for the rice to expand. Close them with the reserved "corks".

COOK: Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Arrange the eggplants close together & add enough water to come halfway up them. Season with salt & pepper & squeeze a whole lemon over them.

Cover & cook over gentle heat 3/4 to 1 hour, adding more water if needed. By the end of cooking, the water should be almost completely absorbed.


4. Emeril's Chili

Categories: None

Yield: 6 Servings      

      2 tb Vegetable oil
      2 c  Chopped onions
      2 lb Stewed meat
      1 tb Chili powder
      2 ts Ground cumin
           Crushed red pepper
      2 ts Dried oregano
      2 tb Chopped garlic
      3 c  Crushed tomatoes
    1/4 c  Tomato paste
      2 c  Beef stock
      1 c  Canned dark red kidney beans
      2 tb Masa flour
      4 tb Water
      1    Bag Tortilla Chips
  1 1/2 c  Grated Monterey Jack cheese
      6 tb Sour cream
      1 sm Jar of jalapenos


In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in the stew meat, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Brown the meat for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, and beans. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the liquid, uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is tender. Skim off the fat occasionally. Mix the masa and water together. Slowly stir in the masa slurry and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Re-season with salt and cayenne. Place a handful of the chips in each shallow bowl. Spoon the chili over the chips. Garnish with the grated cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
