Food Thread: Our Long National Nightmare Has Just Begun: The Moron Cookbook Is Here!

bacon11.jpg
[Why bacon? Why the hell not?]

I got my copy yesterday, and it far exceeded my expectations! I was hoping for a fun, amateur cookbook with some clever Horde memes worked into it. But it is a thoroughly professional effort that is a pleasure to read. It is laid out well, it is humorous, some of the recipes look fantastic and the rest are fun to read and certainly worth a try, and definitely a chuckle.

The net proceeds will be donated to Toys for Tots and Fisher House, both highly rated charities according to "Charity Navigator."

Below the fold is a note from Bluebell and Weasel, but before you click to the rest of the post, head over to the sidebar and buy a few dozen copies of the cookbook. Or at least one...it really is a hoot.

******
Horde, we did it! We, the Moron Horde of Ace of Spades HQ, are published authors! Congratulations, and many, many thanks to ALL OF YOU who sent in recipes. The cookbook is a wonderful sample of Moron cuisine from all over our country and even around the world. We loved reading the stories of how you all came to have these recipes, and feel honored that you shared the best of your kitchen with us.

Besides the contributors, we also wish to thank the following people by name (well, nic): Bandersnatch, for all the artwork, including that awesome cover; Muldoon, for his limericks sprinkled throughout the book; our proofreaders – JTB and Mrs. JTB, moki, Miley the Duchess, westminsterdogshow, cfo mom, and booknlass; and RedMindBlueState, who gave us some valuable advice early on in this endeavor. THANK YOU!! Thank you also to everyone who encouraged us from the very start, including our early cookbook committee!

Very special thanks goes to CBD, without whom this project would never have gotten off the ground (CBD, you’d better not change one word of this). He went to Ace for us and requested and received permission to go forward with this project, posted the submission website for us on the sidebar for three weeks, gave us much-appreciated counsel behind the scenes, devoted lots of space in the food thread to this effort, whenever we asked him to and even when we didn’t, and did so much more. We couldn’t have done it without him, and that is the truth.

And of course, our heartfelt thanks to Ace, who let us dream up this audacious project and see it through to completion right here on the blog. At his request, the net proceeds will all go to charity. We will split the money 50/50 between Toys for Tots and Fisher House.

And finally, because I (bluebell) am writing this, I wish to thank Weasel, for proposing this project, bringing me into it, and doing all the hard work, and no, I’m not kidding. He did a ton of research, talked to countless publishers on the phone, submitted applications and paperwork for all sorts of things, handled all the communication with our publisher, and did all the technical work with CreateSpace, Kindle Direct Publishing, and Amazon. And, AND, was very supportive and patient with his plodding co-editor. If it were not for Weasel, there would be no Moron cookbook. Weasel, you’re the best.

cado cuddler - Copy.jpg

Why yes, I am a bit compulsive. Why do you ask?

As avocados ripen they seem to compress and deform, so what better way to prevent that than to use a foam holder? Yes folks, it's the new, patent-pending 'Cado-CuddlerTM! Available soon from Dildo Manufacturing Corporation.

By the way, that anemic and dried-out looking lime is a direct result of a conspicuous lack of tonic water. I bought the lime, gleefully skipped home, and discovered that some idiot hadn't bought fresh tonic! Speaking of which, why does it go flat so quickly? It's probably a plot, carefully orchestrated by Big Tonic.

******

From commenter "Emmie," a video I have never seen....it's great!

sees candy.png

If you want to have a good time, head over to the See's Candy website and build yourself a box of chocolates. It's just like going to one of their stores, although you don't get a sample from the nice lady behind the counter.

I used to wander over to the See's store in Berkeley every now and then, back before it was bought by Warren Buffett, and back before they took anything other than cash. The chocolates were great then, and they are great now. They are not expensive either, so it's not like buying fancy Belgian or Swiss chocolates or truffles for $50/lb.

******

fresh bread.jpg

I took a short detour on Friday and miraculously ended up in the parking lot of Balthazar Bakery, one of the better bakeries in the NY metro area, and the bread source for its eponymous restaurant in lower Manhattan. Wonderful fresh breads and beautiful pastries, and an efficient and friendly staff. Great place.

But...what to do with all of that bread? Another detour, this time to a local market, where I bought far too much cheese. If that is possible.

Good cheese on good bread is one of those things that is always good, and last night was no exception. Hell, even a chunk of plain old cheddar on a piece of their sourdough is fantastic.

Here's a Christmas cookie recipe that sounds like fun.
(Annotated slightly by Bluebell)

Neapolitan Cookies

(from Southern Living Christmas Cookies cookbook)

• 1 cup butter, softened
• 1 ½ cups sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 ½ cups flour
• 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ teaspoon almond extract
• red food coloring
• ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
• 1 1-oz. square unsweetened chocolate, melted

Line bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loafpan with waxed paper.

Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat well. Stir in vanilla.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; add to creamed mixture, beating just until blended.

Divide dough into thirds. Add almond extract and 5 drops red food coloring to one portion; spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. (You’ll have to pat it in there.) Add pecans to second portion; spread mixture evenly over dough in pan. Add melted chocolate to remaining portion; spread mixture evenly over dough in pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Turn dough out of pan, and remove waxed paper. Cut dough in half length-wise; cut each half crosswise into 1/8-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight container.

Yield: 5 dozen (although I must slice them a little thinner; I usually get at about 6 dozen).

******

ADDENDUM

Oh hell, I completely forgot to tell you maniacs that there will be three cookbooks given away during this thread. Hopefully Weasel will explain, but in the meantime, there are three random numbers that have been chosen, and the authors of comments that correspond to those numbers will receive a free cookbook! All you have to do is supply a mailing address to Weasel, obviously off the blog, and you will get your rare, limited edition that is sure to become a much sought after classic of culinary publishing history.

Shhh. No one's supposed to know about that hobo!

Seriously, you all have no idea what Weasel went through for this thing. And to be honest, I have no idea of the depth of it, even. I just know if it were me, I'd have thrown up my hands and given up. So he deserves all that thanks, and much more.

Posted by: bluebell ~ get cooking, Horde! at December 10, 2017 04:06 PM (kNasr)

30 DangerGirl, Amazon has been notorious about that lately: free "2-day shipping" that's really 3, 4, 5, or even 6 days.

Won't surprise me if in a couple years they start offering "SUPER Prime," where for $200-$300 a year (instead of $100) they send you everything FedEx overnight.

Posted by: qdpsteve at December 10, 2017 04:07 PM (eMKNe)

31 A bigly thanks to everyone who submitted recipes, art, limericks, support and advice. The result would not have been the same without all of you. This is your book. And finally a very special thanks to Ace, CBD and my friend bluebell.

35 I have been sitting here all day with one eye on the front window waiting for my books that "are out for delivery by 8pm tonight". At this point I think they are full of it as far as actually "out" with the Sunday squad. My guess is they are "out" means sorted and ready to go for tomorrow's regular delivery or yet again the carrier can not tell the difference between address # 24522 and address # 24252.

Of course not having read the entire book did not prevent me from writing my review. I based it on the one chapter I proofread. Good enough for an 'ette.

37 CFO mom, see my note about Amazon upstairs. :-)

Frustrating when you're excited for something. And I can understand delays during this time of year-- everybody and their dog is mailing tons of stuff out-- but I've found Amazon has trouble getting out items on time throughout the rest of the year, as well.

Posted by: qdpsteve at December 10, 2017 04:10 PM (eMKNe)

38 I'm in the middle of making Creme Brulee. So far, it's a lot easier than anticipated, but I have yet to do the torched sugar step, so we shall see. I'm making it now, so I'll have worked out the kinks by the time I'm ready to do it for company. Wish me luck!


Oh, and cheddar on sourdough is one of my favorite things. Sometimes I think I should dress it up, but then I think "why"?

We understand that some people feel that way about Amazon, but they really represented the best solution for printing and distribution. It is available for retail sales channels to pick and carry, should they want to, but the printing will still be done by Amazon.

87 I had See's candy for the first time this past Easter. My mom had a box shipped to me. Wow are those great candies.

What I liked most was there was no frou frou stuff, you know, lilac and lavender and gold leaf. All the ones with nuts had a great nutty flavor. Even the deplorable white chocolate one with tart lemon creme was delish. Every single piece was quality

It's bad here today. It was supposed to be over 80 degrees and it's 50 because of the smoke. It's raining ash here, the smoke has blocked out the sun all the way to at least Cayucos.

Monticeto is under mandatory evacuation in some parts, rincon has burned. The fire is in the hills above summerland, carpinteria, and Monticeto. My niece goes to Westmont college and she's evacuated to San Luis.

This is the worst fire I've seen.

104 Hey Horde! Just got the ole' cookbook! And, may I say, it is fantastic. I leafed through it quickly (Mostly to make sure my recipe made the cut ~ it did Huzzah Chicken Sacrpariello "Publius"! but also to see how it is arranged and stop here and there to read) and then I turned to the front to start to actually read through. I have not made it through the drinks yet ~ but dare I say, from what I have read so far in the skim and the thorough read, these recipes are excellent and well written and there are loads of wonderful things to prepare and cook in here. I can see all of you have given us some wonderful insight into who you all are ( that's a good thing) while opening a window into yourselves , your families' heritage and, best of all, given us all a little bit o' love.

I have to say, getting a little "verklempt" here.

Kudos and thank you all for being wonderful, caring, true Americans and I am proud to call you all my friends.

OK~ off to make a "Collect Call of Cthulu" as a pre dinner cocktail ( which, by the way is my favorite recipe title so far ~ hat tip to All Hail Eris!). Now where did I leave my pickled octopus?

I'm going to continue gushing over the cookbook, because it's awesome and you all should buy one. And I am celebrating because the children's Christmas Pageant is done and finished for the year, and I don't have to worry about another one for 8-9 months!! Only two nosepickers!!! Woohoo!!!!!!! Life is good!!!!

For my food contribution today, we were making chili for dinner, and didn't have a mix, so I made one up. I'll let you know how it tastes, but this is good advice to check your spice cabinet more than once a month to make sure you are well supplied. And now is a good time to buy spices because there are coupons, and buy two get one free specials that help with the cost.

boneless skinless chicken thighs browned with onions, chipotle powder and garlic and ground pepper.

Add hot Pace picante sauce, simmer and slowly break down the chicken. (I use a wooden spoon so as to protect the cooking surface)

Simmer until moister cooks off, serve as tacos with regular fixin's, save leftover meat for chicken enchiladas. (freeze)

Takes a while to make but the house smells great during the process.

212 Olddog in Mo: I know nothing about fish tacos, but in my reduced state, if I had to pretend to make some, I'd get some flour tortillas from Wal-de-Mart, some fried tilapia from the Chinese Buffet across the street, and add chopped up cucumber salad from the same place, with thin-sliced red onions. It wouldn't really be authentic, but it would be something.

(Sounds a little like a fried chicken wrap with fried fish instead of fried chicken, I guess.)

In these hard times, I find myself relying on Subway's Tuna Sandwiches more and more, and be thankful I can afford them.

225 Being single and the father of none, I often find myself dining on canned cuisine and takeout. This book has been a blessing in so many ways. The tips and tricks on proper can opener technique was a valuable asset and has cut my band-aid bill in half. Ace himself takes on the often asked question of, 'Vodka before or after canned beef ravioli?' His reply,...'both!' Brilliant, an absolutely brilliant observation and correct response. The recipes on baked cookies and biscuits has caught my attention and after purchasing a fire extinguisher and smoke alarm I plan on starting up my oven for the first time and giving some a go. This book has provided me with inspiration to take on cooking as a hobby instead of a chore and allow my area fast food delivery drivers time to conduct much needed maintenance on their over worked vehicles. Thank you to so many who made this possible...Merry Christmas.

no silly: you let it warm up to room temp first.

actually, the key to cooking the perfect steak is to show the cow a picture of a fire on a flash card, THEN start eating.

in reality, with good beef, anything above medium rare is a crime and a sin against nature. if you insist on cooking it more than that, just buy pot roasts or make stew.

Uncle Palp, there are over 500 recipes in there. Weasel did an index by contributor's nic because you can well imagine that some of the names didn't necessarily convey any information about the recipe, lol.

But our goal was to use at least one recipe from everyone who sent in a food recipe, unless we had a serious formatting issue or sent numerous emails for clarification that were not answered, which only happened to very few. There's always the possibility of error, which would be all mine. But anyone who sent us a food recipe should be in there.

I ordered the hardcopy cookbook because it is so awkward to lug the desktop into the kitchen. I suppose I could hand copy the recipes from the Kindle app. Of course, if I had a printer, which I don't, I could print out the recipes..

So anyway, Amazon doesn't know when the cookbook will ship; they will email when it does. Don't know when it will arrive in the mail during the Christmas rush; could be January.

All y'all make it sound so interesting that I couldn't wait, so bought an eBook copy. I notice you start right off with the liquor. Makes sense.

Mark Andrews Edward's Beef and Noodles reminded me of a similar dish my mother used to make. Simple enough for an old and lazy loner. Can of beef, package of frozen egg noodles, can of stewed tomatoes and there you go. Variations, as many as you can imagine. Thanks for the reminder.

Mother wasn't a great cook, but she made Toll house Chocolate Chips cookies that were unbeatable; soft, not crisp, full of chocolate. Best when right out of the oven with cold milk. I could sit in the kitchen and eat'm faster than she could bake'm. Unfortunately the secret recipe she used she never wrote down.

Congratulations to the crew for a great job, and thanks for the memories.

And Thing from Snowy Mountain, the cookbook will be available for a long time, so don't you worry. That's one of the reasons we self-published through Amazon. They actually print to order, which means we didn't have to guesstimate the number of books we'd sell (good thing), and we also don't have boxes of books sitting in our kitchens waiting to be mailed.

we have a Fisher-Pykel (sp?) two door dishwasher. bought at Lowe's as a floor model @half off.

it's awesome: they are designed to be kosher, hence the two drawers, but we like it because you don't have to wait for every dish and glass in the cupboards to get dirty before you run a load. and, on the Fast/Eco setting, it's 38 minutes, start to finish.

that means, IF you're entertaining, you can clean as you go, and not have a huge pile of stuff to wash at the end, or the next day. seems to be reliable too, as we've only had 1 problem, solved by a single replacement part, in over 10 years of steady use.

297 Yesterday we traveled to Kansas City. The main purpose was to see my up-the-hill neighbor, who is in KU Med for major repair work.

After that, and on topic, we were on a quest for Trader Joe's. We had one in Reston, and were without one for 6 long years. I missed their hummus.

We wove in and around shopping areas on the quest. No iPhone. No tablet. As primitive as can be.

I did not want to stop at Macy's. It was close. But she agreed with me. Onward to Trader Joe's. We continued moving east when we saw *sob* a Container Store. We had to stop. My Elfa goddess wanted to stop so bad. Alas, it's a private company. I'd buy stock after that visit.

Finally Trader Joe's. But where was the 2 Buck Chuck? -- our Ur-source for cooking chicken? Only in the Missouri store. Still, we stocked up on a few items and headed home; West into the late sunset. All the frozen and refrigerated goodies like hummus, quinoa, and tortellini were in the cooler for the trip home. And Dover Sole for later.

Life is good.

302 Aren't most cookbooks deplorable though? Yesterday, the gardening thread had a link to a company that makes an ersatz scrambled egg mix out of a bean.

And it does so because "In so many ways, building a more just food system starts with breakfast". But if you must not use eggs to be just, then using eggs in recipes is unjust, evil, in a word deplorable. Even a recipe by Julia Child that used an egg would be deplorable despite the fact that super SJW Meryl Screechmonkey did a biopic.

I've got one, Infidel Had it for about 3 years now. No problems at all so far. It is extremely quiet, and does a great job cleaning. Also has an express cycle (30 min.) which comes in handy.

My favorite features: I got the one with the third rack, which is a small rack at the tippy top that holds all your knives, forks, spoons, etc. Really, really frees up space not having to have a utensil basket. Also, it doesn't have a heating element for drying, so I don't have to worry about putting plastic on the bottom rack. I don't know how it dries them, but it does. (I did read something in the owner's manual about condensation, blah blah blah, but I just glazed over it because, you know, sciencey.)

361 Instead of wasting resources on something dangerous and intrusive like a "self driving car", why doesn't Google try to invent an automated chef? That sounds like a much simpler and safer problem to solve. And think, if it works, no chefs in CA threatening to do unsanitary things if Prop 8 passes, as they have done.

Ate breakfast there once and pancakes were served. While cleaning up afterwards noticed that the bottle of cooking oil has a tiny mouse at the bottom.

No. The mouse was not part of the recipe.

You know what's funny ~ there is a fondue restaurant down the street from were I live in Westchester. Have not seen one since the last time I went skiing in Colorado. ( Breckenridge) a few years back. I am sure there must be one somewhere in Manhattan ~ but have never seen one ~ and yet here's one down the street. DO love fondue. Had it years ago in Switzerland and very much enjoyed. The Redux kids love it now too after having it in CO.

We went to the one in Vienna all the time. I knew it moved in to the B & N space. Sad. Spent some time in that bookstore.

Hmm, are we crossing the memes here -book thread and food thread?

The really funny thing is I spent more. My wife was impressed. I'm getting with the program fine.

I wanted to get some stout containers to stow scientific glassware for my business. Some of those distilling heads and columns are pretty pricy. It's a lot cheaper than cabinetry, rolling toolboxes, or workbenches with bespoke shelves.

My cookbooks arrive the 15th, since I never pay for shipping with Amazon. One of the copies is my Christmas present for my foodie neighbor up the hill. She had a massive collection of cookbooks that fill a bookcase up to the ceiling. She showed me her family cookbook from 1908.

I'm in Jersey, rickl. If I order on Amazon Prime with the 2-day delivery, I frequently get stuff on Sunday. However, I believe it is usually the post office that delivers it, not UPS. They have this agreement whereby the shipment starts with UPS and they just drop it all off at the local PO for final delivery. Not everything, just sometimes.

500 Received my paper copy in the mail yesterday and my Kindle copy today. They both look great! I'm sure this has been asked, but how soon until we can start working on "The Deplorable Gourmet: Vol II - A Hobo Fancier's Delight"?

I do have a couple of comments regarding the submission process, but I hope they will be viewed as the constructive criticism they are intended to be...One reason why I only submitted one recipe is because I found the online form a bit primitive. It didn't have the same features we have come to enjoy in our AoS comments box. I have a fantastic recipe for Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake, but the submission box just didn't look like it could handle the directions for making it very well.

Also, I think it would be neat to include some pictures of our culinary creations next time, though I do realize this will significantly add to the cost of the final product. Maybe a select few pictures at the beginning of each chapter? Good cuisine is as much a feast for the eyes as for the belly!

Anyway, kudos to all of the Morons who contributed to this project (myself included), and an extra helping of hoboburgers and Valu-Rite to the Weasel, bluebell, and everyone else who put this amazing project together!

551 I have a Bosch, love it. Nice and quiet. I recommended it to a neighbor who hated it because it didn't have heated drying so her plastic ware was wet. When the cycle is over I just open the door give each rack a shake and leave it to air dry the rest of the way. Since I do dishes in the evenings after dinner and empty in the morning its never been an issue for us.

556 When I ordered the cookbook Amazon said that I could get free shipping if I increased my order to $25. So I looked around and ordered books about the Lusitania and the 1900 Galveston hurricane.

At checkout I was told that the other two books came from other booksellers, so they didn't qualify. I had to pay for shipping on all three. Oh well, they sound good anyway.

I just realized that I've gotten shipping notifications for the other two books, but not the cookbook.

I won 1st Place in a Fischer Scientific Catalog contest once. An all-dancing all-singing pH meter.

As a then synthetic natural products chemist I needed a pH meter like I needed an IRS audit. I had entered the contest for the 2nd prize, a stirrer-hot plate, or 3rd Prize tool kit. I ended up giving the meter to the local high school.

I use the same pans/utensils so often that I would never get a full load before I needed them again and have to hand wash anyway. My dishrack takes up no counter space and it sits so high over my sink that it never has to be moved.

Agnew! I'm glad to see you. You know I was only teasing you the other day with the "nattering nabob of negativity" comment, don't you? I don't want you to buy any more cookbooks than you need! I just wanted the chance to say that to someone named Agnew, because I will never have that chance again in my life, I'm pretty sure.

Soup. Everyone has cans of soup in the pantry.
Pasta, everyone has some pasta.

Ya got eggs? Tab of butter? Stale crust of bread?

Heat the soup, put some pasta in the soup. add a tab of butter, and crack open an egg and call it

egg drop pasta soup with butter and croutons. Top with cheese.

Sure, it won't be that good but it will be food.

It really does have real honest-to-goodness recipes, but yeah, take a look. Starting on page 2 with the drink recipe submitted by our thread host, which he named after himself.

I would say at least 95% of everything is perfectly normal; the remaining 5% might have a little language (no f-bombs though), innuendo, or political incorrectness. PG-13 is what I'd call it, to be safe.

783 CBD, you can never have too much cheese! I have access to both a raclette machine and a fondue set, and have used both in the last year. The raclette machines with individual cheese trays are pricey, but fun. The key is finding the right cheese.

I posted this yesterday, but had the BEST ham this week at an early Christmas party. Recipe was to put the ham in a crock pot and cook it on low for 12 hours. That's it. Pulled apart tender and juicy just with a fork. Planning to make it for Christmas Eve dinner with sides, hopefully some of the sides ones provided by the Horde in the cookbook! Excited to try them.
