Hi, My name is Becky and Mindy invited me to check out your blog . Looks fun and I 'm anxious to try some of your recipes. What is your policy on sharing recipes from books?

Min said...

Hi Becky!
For the record, if a recipe is from a published source, it must be clearly stated in your post. NO plagiarism! If the cookbook is sold on amazon, or you got the recipe from a website, please put in a hyperlink (ask me if you need help).

Please also make note if you've modified the recipe to suit your taste, or made any other changes, etc.

We look forward to some delicious recipes!

I am sure there are links to all my other sites on the blogs listed above.

OK back to getting me more ice tea in my system.

Min said...

Divaliscious! I would love to add you to our blog! But I need your email address...

And I must say, Brrrr, to the thought of iced tea on this winter morning. It's hot coffee for me.

I found the coconut cake recipe. Invite me so I can add it to your contest.

Dee said...

I made a couple of comments about your recipes and did not know that I needed to be invited to be able to post. Maybe that does not mean to just post a comment. I am Dee from Texas and I don't even know how I found your post. But you have some really good recipes. Thanks for sharing them.

This looks fascinating. I am doing a Cooking Blitz on one of my blogs, presently. We are celebrating religious holidays and I have been cooking up a storm and made almost all new recipes. This was over a month's time and I just started blogging them. I certainly hope there are recipes that would interest you there.

My email is

My blogs are Sweet and Savory Says it All

and Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog

Comfy Cook is gluten free

Sweet and Savory is not.

Min said...

Welcome, Chaya! Can't wait to see the recipes you contribute.

I am afraid I have to drop out. I am finding it one thing more than I can handle, right now. If I take on a commitment, I keep it and I am not keeping it now.

If I find more time, I will be back, if you will take me.

Love the blog. You are doing many wonderful things here.

I will be visiting.

Dear Min,

Believe we're cousins by marriage. If so, I'll see you in Tucson in a few days.

Meanwhile, I'm glad to find this site. My mom had mentioned it to me but could never get the name right. Then I saw your Tucson e-mail to the family.

Thanks for the Tucson tips. They jived with some I had heard. Now I wish I was staying much longer.

Take care, cook well,
Wendy Demandante

Panera's Broccoli Cheese Soup (modified by Wendy D.)

8 tablespoons butter, divided
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 quart half-and-half
8 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 1/2 pounds broccoli, steamed and roughly chopped
1 pound carrots, finely grated (about 3 cups)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or more, to taste
1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 8-quart soup pot. Saute chopped onoin in melted butter until soft; set aside.
2. Melt remaining 6 tablespoons butter in same pot. Add flour and whisk over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Whisking constantly, add half-and-half. Continue whisking until smooth.
4. Add stock, whisking until combined.
5. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Add the broccoli, carrots, and reserved oinion. Cook over low heat until veggies are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
7. Blend if desired, preferably with an immersible blender.
8. Add grated cheese and stir over medium-low heat until cheese is melted.
9. Stir in nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste.

NOTE: I steam broccoli in microwave. Add more stock if the soup is too thick for your taste. However, though it's quite thick when cool, it seems just right to me when hot. Serve with crusty bread and perhaps an apple pie for dessert.

It's my understanding that one cannot copyright a recipe. However, I agree that it's always good to acknowledge one's sources.

Linda said...

Hi Mindy,
Wendy thought you might like to post this recipe of Moist Chocolate Cake.
So here goes:
Moist Chocolate Cake
2 cups sugar 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups flour 1 cup oil
1/3 heaping cup cocoa 2 large eggs
2 tsp. soda 2 c. hot water
1 tsp. baking powder 2 T. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350'.
Sift together sugar, flour, cocoa, soda, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add liquid shortening; then add eggs,
hot water, and vanilla. Beat and bake in dripper pan for
30-40 min., or it makes 3 layers or jelly roll pan (15-20 min.). I usually make it in a jelly roll pan, and frost it with chocolate frosting-powdered sugar, cocoa, butter, dash of salt, vanilla, and warm milk to the consistency I want. It makes a big cake. Super moist and delicious.

This recipe is from "American Fork's Historical Recipe Book"

Hope you enjoy it, we really like it.

I'm Megan from A Bolder Table, in Boulder, CO. I'm pretty bad-ass in the kitchen. All of my recipes, except those from Taste and Create, are my own.

Unknown said...

I'm a guy...Any loopholes that would allow me to be a "bad girl" too...ok, I don't like the sound of that...How about a simple, can I join too? Love the site and recipes, my daughter and I tripped across it and are about to make muffins for breakfast for the fam...and yes, I have, what I think, are some pretty bad ass recipes to post.

My email is

Min said...

Buck, no loopholes, you're in! Can't wait to see your bad ass recipes, and let me know what you all think of the muffins. Emails coming your way. Welcome aboard!

Megan Harmeyer said...

I found your blog while searching for some different new recipes to try. I'm so glad I found you because your blog ROCKS! My name is Megan and I'm owner of Kitschy Suburbia. It's a recipe/nail polish/family blog. This is one of my favorite recipes: I'd love to be a Bad Girl Kitchen member!

Min said...

Angela said...

Hi! I found your blog and have spent the entire morning perusing and find recipes I want to try. I'm an American living in Vienna, Austria and I miss my American food, so I am always cooking. I've also learned quite a few Bavarian and Austrian dishes that are delicious and simple and really easy to make.
We have a blog about our experiences as a multi-cultural couple, but it's mostly about my experiences, as an ex-pat.
This is one of my favorite Austrian recipes.
I would love to be an official bad girl, though I've slid under the radar for years.
