leeneia BS: The other recipe thread is too long (474* d) RE: BS: The other recipe thread is too long 22 Jul 21


Hi, SRS. I too have my boxes, full of the recipes we like best. I have two for my own recipes, one for meat dishes plus bread, another for everything else, mostly salads and desserts.

When my husband's parents passed away, we accepted their collection of recipes. There are the old favorites - beef in red wine, coq au vin, quiche Lorraine, Hungarian goulash. Another favorite is chicken thighs roasted with lime juice and paprika. It's very tasty.

My father-in-law was a great one for clipping recipes out of the newspaper and then never cooking them. That recipe for chicken was probably one of those. It looked like it had sat in the box for thirty years.

Often I cook those old European recipes in a slow cooker. There's less fuss and the meat gets very tender. I put the herbs and spices in at the end, so they don't get cooked to death.
