1. Kiffles

Categories: Cookies, Desserts

Yield: 5 Servings

      2 c  Flour, (heaping)     
      3 tb Sugar     
      1 tb Sour cream, heaping     
      1 c  Butter     
      3    Egg yolks     
      1 c  Prune butter

Cream butter, sour cream, and sugar. Add egg yolks, then flour. Knead with hands until well blended, adding a little more flour if needed. Divide dough into 6-8 sections, pat each into a flat piece, then chill. Roll out, between waxed paper, each section like a pie crust. Cut with a sharp knife ~ 4 cross cuts to make 8 triangles. Drop 1/2 teaspoon of prune butter onto each triangle, roll up starting at wide end. Put on greased cookie sheet. Bake 375 degrees or till light brown. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Even though these have very little sugar, they are fabulous. They even give Kolaches some stiff competition.

2. Kung Pao's Chicken

Base: Poultry

Number of Servings: 4

1 Cup(s) peanuts
1 Pound(s) Chicken, breast cut 1" pcs
Marinade, chicken:
  2 Teaspoon(s) Rice wine, or dry sherry
  1 Teaspoon(s) Cornstarch
  1 Teaspoon(s) Sesame oil
  1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Dark soy sauce
  2 Tablespoon(s) Red wine vinegar
  2 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
  2 Tablespoon(s) Peanut oil, or corn oil
  1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
  8 Sm Red chile, dried seeded
  2 Teaspoon(s) Ginger, fresh minced
  2 Cup(s) Garlic, minced
  1 Bell pepper, seeded cut in

ROAST THE PEANUTS IN A 325F oven until golden brown (about 10 minutes). Remove and set aside. To make marinade, mix together rice wine, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil. In a bowl, toss the chicken with the marinade; set aside until ready to cook. In a small bowl, mix well, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and other teaspoon of sesame oil. Over medium heat, preheat wok until hot. Add oil, salt and dried red chiles; cook until chiles are charred (about 15 seconds). Add ginger and garlic; stir-fry until fragrant and lightly browned (about 30 seconds). Increase to high heat, add bell peppers and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the chicken into the wok and stir-fry a minute or until the cubes feel firm to the touch and are opaque white in color. It should take no more than a total of 2 minutes. Now stir in sauce mixture; toss and stir until it thickens into a glaze (about 30 seconds). Remove wok from heat. Add reserved roasted peanuts, fold together. Serve hot. Selden, here is my version of General Tso Chicken, which is also known as Kung Pao Chicken. When charring the chile peppers, be sure the ventilation is on and avoid breathing the strong chile fumes. The charring creates a desirable smoky flavor. Serves 4 to 6 with other dishes.

3. Kurt's Simple Pot Of Beans

1 Quart(s) Dry Pinto Beans
2 beer
2 Teaspoon(s) Blk pepper
2 Teaspoon(s) Granulated garlic
Salt to taste
2 Bnch green onions, sliced
4 Jalapenos, chopped
1 Cilantro, chopped

In large pot add beans, beer and water to at least twice the volume of beans. Add pepper, granulated garlic and salt. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for a couple of hours till beans are done. Add more water as necessary. 30 minutes before serving add remaining ingredients. Keep plenty of liquid in pot and they will hold on low heat all day. Use slotted spoon to serve.

4. Kuzu Kapama (Roast Lamb With Tomatoes And Potatoes)

Base: Meats

Number of Servings: 6

Olive oil
2 Onions
3 Garlic cloves
6 Firm potatoes
4 Parsley sprigs
Black pepper, freshly ground
2 1/4 Kilogram(s) Leg of lamb
Light stock

Chop the onions, garlic and parsley finely. Peel and slice the potatoes and slice the tomatoes. Preheat the oven to 230C/450F/Gas 8. Liberally grease a large roasting pan with olive oil. Mix together the chopped onions and 2/3 of the garlic. Sprinkle half the mixture over the bottom of the roasting pan. Arrange the tomato and potato slices in an overlapping layer in the pan. Sprinkle generously with the chopped parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the remaining onions and garlic mixture over the top and pour over 4 tablespoons of stock. Rub the leg of lamb with the remaining garlic and salt and pepper. Place the lamb on the bed of vegetables and put it in the oven. Immediately reduce the heat to 175C/350F/Gas 4 and roast the lamb for about 2 hours (25 minutes to the pound), basting it occasionally with the stock. "Kuzu Kapama is a traditional dish eaten all over Turkey. Because few homes in the small towns and villages have ovens the dish is prepared in the morning, taken to the local bakery to be cooked and collected in the evening in time for dinner." 

5. Kylie's Muesli Bars

Number of Servings: 15

1 Cup(s) Oats, rolled
3 Cup(s) Cornflakes, crushed
1 Cup(s) Coconut, desiccated
1 1/2 Cup(s) Fruit, dried mixed
3 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Full-cream milk powder
4 Ounce(s) Butter
1/2 Cup(s) Brown sugar, packed
1/2 Cup(s) Honey
1/2 Cup(s) Peanut butter

Mix the oats, corn flakes, coconut, dried fruit and milk powder together in a big bowl. Simmer butter, sugar, honey and peanut butter together for 3 minutes, or microwave on high for 4 minutes (from cold), stirring every minute. Pour sauce into dry mixture and mix well. Press into a biscuit tray and put in refrigerator until cold. Cut when cold. NOTES Delicious and nourishing bars for hiking or home -- This is a recipe that my daughter, Kylie, has perfected, starting from one published in some magazine. They are ideal to use as trail bars, being both filling and full of energy, but are also perfect as snacks at home or work. When on a hard bush walk, eating these is a real highlight of my day. The bars are best kept in the refrigerator, although it's by no means essential. They soften in the heat but don't disintegrate. Any other cereal crumbs can be combined with corn flakes to make up the 3 cups. It's a good way to use up those otherwise annoying scraps. If too much powdery stuff goes in, the bars can be somewhat dense. Using Rice Bubbles (Rice Krispies) gives a lighter texture. Desiccated coconut is best, as shredded coconut is too course.: 

Difficulty: easy.
Time: 30 minutes.
Precision: Approximate measurement OK.
