Foodie Friday - Recipe Repeat and a Share

It's Friday! Time for an invite over to Gollum's to see what every body's cooking up! Last week was Food disasters - so I decided not to try and duplicate any of those - I can manage those all on my own! Although they were quite humorous!

One of the recipes that caught my eye a couple of week's ago that I thought I would bring back for "Recipe Repeat" was Marty's Korean Fried Rice. Marty says this is a family favorite and I can see why! This is sure to become a family classic if your family, like mine, loves chinese food. Be sure to visit Marty at her blog "A Stroll Thru Life"

Marty's Korean Fried Rice

1 large onion
6 slices bacon
3 eggs
5 cups cooked white rice
soy sauce

Dice onion and saute in a little oil until clear. Cut or tear bacon. Remove onion and cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and beat eggs and scramble in the same pan. Add onion and bacon back into pan. Salt & Pepper and mix. Add cooked rice and stir until mixed. Add soy sauce to taste. Serve as a side dish.

Marty says that her family prefers this as a side dish, but I added peas and carrots and three small (already cooked) chicken tenders and made it the main dish. We loved it. You could add lots of those leftovers that were too much to throw away, but too little to make another meal. In fact, I had put aside some of this to have again the next day for lunch - but it was a midnight snack for my husband! It certainly got our stamp of approval. This is a great recipe for those times you're looking for something quick and simple. Thanks Marty for sharing this!

Now this recipe is not a "Foodie Friday" repeat -- but it is from another blogger friend that many of us know and love ... Dot from "Picket's Place". This is her blackberry cobbler recipe and another standard to add to the recipe box.

Dot's Blackberry Cobbler

1 stick butter
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup self rising flour
1 Cup milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 can blackberry pie filling (this could be any fruit pie filling you would like)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray Pam on baking dish. Melt butter in dish. Drop fruit in big spoonfuls. Mix sugar and flour in mixing bowl. Add milk and whisk. Add vanilla and mix. Pour over blackberry (or fruit) mix. DO NOT STIR. Bake 45 minutes.

Cobbler usually does not make a "fancy" presentation like a pie or cake would. But when somebody bakes a cobbler for me it sort of says, "I just love you like family!" It's the sort of dessert for coming in the back door, sitting at the kitchen table, having a cup of coffee and catching up on all the family news. Just like visiting Dot at "Picket's Place". This is good old comfort food, speaking of which, Dot's feeling pretty low this week, because her 16 year old furbaby Maggie crossed Rainbow Bridge on Saturday. So if you get a chance, stop by and give her a cheerful hello!

I took this cobbler to work and it was all gone within half an hour! It got all thumbs up!

Come on over and I'll bake you a cobbler - 'cuz you know I just love you like family!
Be sure to check out Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum to see what everybody's cooking up this week.

See ya!
