It seems to come up often (surprising for a sex site) (no pun intended) with a question of what's for dinner (lunch, etc) ... here's a place to share your recipes or find one that someone has suggested.

Feel free to share ... we seem to all love to eat, cook or at least clean up the dishes!!!

Pan Roasted Butterflied Chicken with Fresh Herbs

6 cloves of garlic, Peeled
4 tbsp snipped Italian Parsley
2 Tbsp fresh Tarragon (or 1 Tbsp dried)
2 Tbsp fresh chives (or substitute green onion)
The zest of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper
¼ cup olive oil
1 whole chicken, washed and patted dry

Preheat the oven 450°.

Using a mini food processor, chop together the garlic, parsley, tarragon, chives, lemon peel and 1 tsp salt. With the machine on drizzle in 3 tbsp olive oil and process until a coarse paste forms.

Gently slide your fingers between the skin and flesh of the chicken breasts and legs. Place breast side down in a cutting board, with the large cavity facing you. Using good kitchen shears, start at the open cavity and cut down each side of the backbone; discard the backbone. Open the chicken like a book, and then flip over. Press down firmly on the top fleshy part of the breast until you hear the bone crack.

Using your fingers, stuff the herb mixture under the skin spreading it evenly. Rub the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil on the skin and underside of the chicken; season with salt and pepper. Place breast side up in a roasting pan and cook until the skin is golden and crispy or until an instant read thermometer registers 165°, about 45 min. During the last 10 minutes cover loosely with foil. Let the chicken rest for 15 minutes before carving.

4 tablespoons flour (that's plain flour, not self-raising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) a small splash of vanilla extract
1 coffee mug

Put dry ingredients in mug, and mix well Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Microwave for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the
top of the mug, but don't be alarmed.
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

Note: This can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.

Torture the data long enough and they will confess to anything.

1 cup sliced celery
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup crumpled blue cheese substitute: omit
2/3 cup blue cheese (ranch) salad dressing

Due to allergies, I substitute Ranch Dressing for the Blue Cheese

Directions: Heat oven to 400* F. Spray 10 1/2 inch Lodge cast iron skillet or 8 x 8~inch (2 quart) baking dish with no~stick cooking spray. Stir egg, milk, and oil together. Add cornbread mix, cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup blue cheese, diced hot wings, red pepper flakes, and 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro. Stir until well blended. Pour mixture into prepared skillet or baking dish, spread evenly. Bake 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven. Cool. COMBINE lettuce, celery,red onion, and 1/2 cup cruppled blue cheese. Toss with blue cheese dressing. Cut cornbread into 8 servings. Top each serving with an even amount of salad. Garnish with diced tomatoes and cilantro.

SweetSexyThing got a question, doll. Is it only cheese filled rav?

Now this recipe is for Milik_The_Red (word of warning: facial hair & nose hair fire)

Backdraft recipe

serve in
Brandy Snifter

Scale ingredients to servings
1 1/2 oz Drambuie® Scotch whisky
1 1/2 oz Grand Marnier® orange liqueur

Pour equal amounts into Brandy Snifter and light.

Place hands over top of glass to form airtight seal that extinguishes flame. Slide straw between fingers keeping seal as tight as possible. Drink beverage through straw.

Remove straw after drink is finished. Put glass to nose and remove hand to allow burnt fumes to be inhaled through nose. Definitely a one-a-nighter.

Good Eats Meatloaf

Recipe courtesy of Alton Brown

Cook Time:45 min
Yield: 6 to 8 servings


6 ounces garlic-flavored croutons
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 onion, roughly chopped
1 carrot, peeled and broken
3 whole cloves garlic
1/2 red bell pepper
18 ounces ground chuck
18 ounces ground sirloin
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg

For the glaze:
1/2 cup catsup
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Dash hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a food processor bowl, combine croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture. Place this mixture into a large bowl. Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and red pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed. Combine the vegetable mixture, ground sirloin, and ground chuck with the bread crumb mixture. Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt. Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.

Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Insert a temperature probe at a 45 degree angle into the top of the meatloaf. Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe. Set the probe for 155 degrees.

Combine the catsup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes.

Guinness Chili - I've made steak and guinness pie before, I bet that tastes good Algol.

I'm trying this tonight, but with Pork instead. I saw it on Masterchef and it looked delicious and easy to do, plus I can use the Sage from my garden eat

500g veal or pork loin, sliced into 4 escalopes
20 sage leaves
4 slices of prosciutto
plain flour, for dusting
2 tbs olive oil
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
2 tbs baby capers, rinsed and drained
40g unsalted butter
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
¼ cup white wine
handful of baby spinach
lemon cheeks, to serve
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Step 1: Place veal slices between two sheets of cling wrap and carefully pound with meat mallet to about 8mm thick.

Step 2: Press 2 sage leaves onto each veal piece. Lay prosciutto slices onto a clean work surface and place veal, sage-side down onto each slice of prosciutto (ensuring the sage is wrapped under prosciutto).

Step 3: Place flour in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. Add wrapped veal pieces to the flour and toss to coat, shaking off any excess.

Step 4: Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add veal to the pan, sage- side down, then add the garlic, capers and butter. Once the butter is foaming add the cherry tomatoes and turn the veal over to cook for a further minute. Add remaining sage to the pan and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until cherry tomatoes start to soften. Remove veal from the pan, set aside and keep warm.

Step 5: Add white wine to the pan. Using a fork, carefully squash half the tomatoes into the sauce. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted. Season to taste.

Step 6: Spoon sauce with the squashed tomatoes onto serving plate, top with saltimbocca veal and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve with lemon cheeks.

Serves 4

This thread deserves a sticky 3601

Talking of sticky - courtesy of Mr Oliver: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/other-recipes/sticky-toffee-pudding

• 225g fresh dates, stoned
• 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
• 85g unsalted softened butter
• 170g caster sugar
• 2 large free-range eggs
• 170g self-raising flour
• ¼ teaspoon ground mixed spice
• ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 2 tablespoons Ovaltine
• 2 tablespoons natural yoghurt

for the toffee sauce
• 115g unsalted butter
• 115g light muscovado sugar
• 140ml double cream

dessert recipes | serves 8

You are going to love this pudding – it has a rich, fantastic flavour and the sauce is amazing. Fresh Medjool dates are best to use, but dried ones work well too.

Preheat your oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Put the dates in a bowl with the bicarbonate of soda and cover with 200ml/7fl oz of boiling water. Leave to stand for a couple of minutes to soften, then drain. Whiz the dates in a food processor until you have a purée. Meanwhile, cream your butter and sugar until pale using a wooden spoon, and add the eggs, flour, mixed spice, cinnamon and Ovaltine. Mix together well, then fold in the yoghurt and your puréed dates. Pour into a buttered, ovenproof dish and bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes.

While the pudding is cooking, make the toffee sauce by putting the butter, sugar and cream in a pan over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened and darkened in colour. To serve, spoon out the pudding at the table and pour over the toffee sauce.

Loads of comfort food on here. How about we mix it up with a little light meal from Rick Bayless?


Mango Guacamole
Makes about 2 1/2 cups

Recipe from Season 6 of Mexico - One Plate at a Time

3 large ripe avocados
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 to 1 fresh serrano chile, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus a few leaves for garnish
About 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 medium ripe mango, peeled, flesh cut from the pit and diced

1. Cut the avocados in half, running your knife around the pit from stem to blossom end and back up again. Twist the halves in opposite directions to free the pit, and pull the halves apart. Dislodge the pit, then scoop the avocado flesh into a large bowl. Coarsely mash the avocado with a large fork or potato masher. Rinse the onion under cold water, shake off the excess water, then add it to the avocado along with the serrano, cilantro and lime juice.

2. Mix in 2/3 of the diced mango. Taste and season with salt. If not using immediately, cover with plastic wrap pressed directly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate - preferably for no more than a few hours.

3. When you're ready to serve, scoop guacamole into a serving bowl and garnish with the remaining diced mango and cilantro sprigs. Serve with tortilla chips, slices of cucumber or jicama.

The pairing of a citrus Mango with an avocado base makes for some interesting taste but explosions.
I love his show. Let's not forget that bacon is meat candy!

Preheat oven to 325, spray a bundt pan and set aside. Mix all ingredients together and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted, is clean.

Lushers and Lushettes have once again proven their skills outside of the bedroom.. except for Scarletblue.. she has proven both... as a suggestion.. I'm wondering if we could get all of these and any ongoing additions compiled into a Lushious CookBook? Maybe even a new heading on the Home page... just a thought...

This isn't my own recipe, I got it from the Paula Deen web site at Food

It's for a "different" bread pudding that's to die for! I've served it at a couple parties and have had rave comments.

Here's the link to this at the Paula Deen web site for this particular recipe:


Bill Nicholson's Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

1 pinch salt
1 9ounce box raisins
2 eggs, beaten
2 4.5-oz cans fruit cocktail with liquid
1 14-oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk (not evaporated)
2 dozen Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts
1or2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon

Butter Rum Sauce
1 stick butter (unsweetened)
1 pound box confectioner's sugar
** Rum, to taste


Cube donuts into a LARGE bowl. Pour other ingredients on top of donuts and let soak for a while. Mix all ingredients together until donuts have soaked up as much liquid as possible.
Place into a baking dish, pour any remaining liquid on top.

Bake at 350F for about 1 hour, until the center has jelled

Top with Butter Rum Sauce (below)

Butter Rum Sauce:

Melt butter and slowly stir in confectioner's sugar. Add Rum to taste and heat until bubbly. Pour over each serving.

This recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen

Servings: 20-24 servings
Prep Time: 45 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
Difficulty: Easy

What Lush needs to do is put out a book of all these wonderful recipe's!
