Secret Recipes L'Dat!
August 30th, 2010

Growing up with a mama with mad cooking skillz (and no written recipes), I was never really exposed to recipes and the art of putting them together. Now that I'm a bit older, I have a strange desire to be like Mike her and learn how to cook with my eyes closed.

But since I gotsta start somewhere, I've been going with tried and true recipes and then adding my own little touches to them. I think I've done a-ight with my own takes on Jambalaya, Furikake Salmon and my famous (in my own mind) homemade poke...

... but I'm still in my cooking infancy. Let's use this forum to share some of our favorite recipes with each other so we can all become better cooks together... or at least try! Hehe!

So we got the well-known, local miso chicken marinade recipe right? (1 cup miso, 1 cup shoyu, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup beer!). That's always an easy/quick one.

And then we got the secret ones: Aunty Eunice's Broccoli Salad, Johnny Mac's Sriracha Flap Meat Marinade, RRRRich B's wifey's Peanut Butter Brownies, and Mama's Recipe for a Happy Marriage... (Sorry, even if I may know some of them, I've been sworn to secrecy and will get murdered if I divulge anything, so please don't make me tell you. LOL!)

But here's one that turned out to be a pleasant surprise. We actually found this one on the back of a Chex cereal box and decided to try it. BRAH! Broke da mout'! Fo' real! She go! No joke! (And I'm not really a sweets person...)

Chex Muddy Buddies
Prep Time:15 min
Start to Finish:15 min
Makes:18 servings (1/2 cup each)

Ingredients:
9 cups Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preparation Directions:

  1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
  2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Substitution: Peanut butter and chocolate are a favorite flavor combo, but peanut butter lovers can substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips to intensify that flavor.

Chance um and let me know how it goes.

    Ed- regarding the PB/Syrup. In a small bowl you will mix it to incorporate the syrup into the peanut butter. Mix too much and it gets too thick.

    My Dad used to do this with molasses, but that is too much for me.

    * 41.snow:
    to make marinated fried chicken:

    marinate boneless chicken thighs overnight in teriyaki marinade (using that recipe i posted earlier). dip chicken in beaten egg (try to let as much of the marinade drip off first), then coat with a mixture of half cornstarch and half flour. deep fry until golden brown and chicken is cooked (make sure your heat is not too high, otherwise it will be browned on the outside and raw on the inside).

    *GROWL* My tummy's talking to you Informer! 😉
