Hozu Stir Fry ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on



The hozen are a monkey-like race that lives in Pandaria. 
They are mischievous pranksters native to Pandaria that “act like a group of 14 year old boys” running around together in the jungle, equipped with machine guns and weapons from the Horde, who will recruit this tribe to help fight their war. They are also found all over Pandaria, even in one of the dungeons. –wowpedia

You will need:



4 bananas, sliced
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp ginger
4 tbs butter
2 tbs soy sauce
2 c chicken stock
2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

In a pan melt butter & add bananas, garlic, ginger, soy sauce & onions.


Saute until bananas are soft.

Pandarian Red Salad ~ World of Warcraft Expansion Idea

Posted on Updated on

You will need:

Salad:
4 c shredded red cabbage
1 c water chestnuts (optional)
1/2 c shredded carrots
2c green apples (chopped)
4 stalks celery (chopped)

Red cabbage looking pretty on the inside.

Dressing:
1/4 c soy sauce
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 c orange juice
1/2 tsp grated ginger

Candied Walnuts:
1 c walnuts
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, water chestnuts, apples, celery and carrots.

Whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, orange juice and ginger; pour over cabbage mixture and toss together.
My husband didn’t like the “dressing” so I kept it separate.
Two teaspoons was plenty per bowl.
Sprinkle with candied walnuts.

To make candied walnuts, place 1 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup sugar in a skillet over medium heat.

Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves and turns light brown.
I have to add a bit of liquid to the mixture to get it to stick to the walnuts.

Toss to coat walnuts. Remove skillet from heat; stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Allow to cool before adding to salad.
Store in a seal-able container.

Yum!

Goldshire Pudding ~ World of Warcraft Expansion Idea

Posted on Updated on




“What Happens in Goldshire, stays in Goldshire.”




I can see this as a daily cooking quest in Stormwind.  


-Collect 3 eggs and a bag of flour. Quest reward is a goblin engineered slot machine that for 5 silver you can pull the handle and get the chance at willing a prize. 
The prizes? I dunno, What do you think would make a great prize?


You will need:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).



1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup beef drippings



Mix flour and salt together until blended. 

Make a well in the flour, add the milk, and whisk until consistent. 
Beat the eggs into the batter. 

Add water and beat again until the mixture is light and frothy. 

 Pour drippings into a 9×12 inch baking dish and place into the oven until the drippings sizzle. 

Pour the batter over the drippings and bake for 30-45 minutes (or until the sides have risen and are golden brown). It will puff up, nicely.
Cut into eight portions and serve immediately.

Yum!

 This was delicious!  It smelled like a fresh loaf of bread and a roast beef cooking at the same time.  Wonderful!  I served it with the roast beef I got the drippings from, a vegetable and a salad. It looks funky but I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. 


Pumpkin Pie Kor’kron Krumkake ~ World of Warcraft

Garrosh Hellscream over at The Command Board requested this during a twitter conversation. Apparently I do requests now. 




Don’t get used to it, Warchief!


You will need:



This recipe is quite flexible. 
It was originally an apple coffee cake but I twisted it around to work with pumpkin pie.  
Did you alter your favorite recipe?


1/2 c shortening
1 c white sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c flour
1/2 c quick oats 
(If you don’t have oats, replace the 1/2c oats with flour.)
1 tbs baking powder 
(I use 1 tsp baking soda & 1/2 tsp lemon juice. I think it raises better.)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c milk
1 c pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

Topping:
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon






In a large bowl, cream shortening and 1 cup sugar until light. 






Beat in egg and vanilla until fluffy.





Add pumpkin, oats and spices.




Add flour, baking powder and salt to the creamed mixture.




 Add milk slowly.





Spread the batter into a greased baking pan.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30-45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean and the edges are brown.




Yum!

Staghorn’s Pecan Pie

Posted on Updated on

The inspiration behind this recipe was Oxhorn’s Christmas Special video. Here is a link if you haven’t seen it or it’s been awhile.

You will need:
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
1 cup pecan halves

9in pie crust

Here is a recipe for homemade pie crust if you are feeling adventurous. If not, a store bought one will work just fine.

Combine syrup, sugar, salt, and melted butter or margarine.

Slightly beat the eggs, and add to sugar mixture.

Beat well, and pour into uncooked pie shell.  Trim the extra pie crust from around the edges.
Gently place the pecan halves on top of the filling. They will sink if you drop them on.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for an hour.

Yum!
A special thanks to Oxhorn for allowing me to use the video and Staghorn’s name.
