Strawberry Choco Banana Milkshake

Strawberry Choco Banana Milkshake

1 Cup of Chocolate Milk
3 Very Ripe Bananas (mush into smaller pieces)
24 - 28 ounces of Strawberry Ice Cream (Or Strawberries + Cream)
Couple Pinches of Nutmeg
Couple Pinches of Sugar

The fun part in this is using the blender....put the bananas in first then the chocolate milk and then the Ice Cream. Blend on high at first for a good while till your machine settles a bit...then take a spoon and mash the ice cream down a bit...keep pulsing it...till the ice cream incorporates into the bananas and ice cream. When that happens...sprinkle the nutmeg and sugar. Then blend it one more time...pour into a 32 ounce container and enjoy!! You can chill it in the fridge or drink it straight.

Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks

12 to 16 ounces Vegetable Oil
1 lb Mozzarella Cheese cut into 32 sticks
5/8 cup Flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp water
1 1/4 cups parmesan cheese
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp oregano

Heat oil to 375 degrees in an electric skillet or heavy bottom saucepan (if using a saucepan, use a probe). In bag, shake cheese sticks with flour until well coated. In shallow bowl, beat eggs with water. In another shallow bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Dip cheese sticks one at a time, in egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture until well coated. Place the cheese sticks on a large baking sheet and chill in a fridge for about an hour. Fry sticks in the hot oil for 3 to 5 seconds or until golden brown. Remove carefully with slotted spoon or tongs...and serve with your favorite dipping sauce...I like diced tomatoes and tomato can use whatever you want really.

Recipe #1....

Welcome to the Iron Chef Moo recipe book.........

1 can Tomato Soup

2. Stir in remaining ingredients....heat quickly to a boil then simmer it down for 5-7 minutes. Stir again then top with cheese. Makes 4 hearty servings...serve with bread or salad.

The Beginning....

In the beginning....there was a little kid who always watched the people in his family cook...and he wondered "how can I make this better?" Gradually through various inspirations, I developed a bit of my own cooking style. To say it is unique, would be considered a vast understatement. Moving from the East Coast to the West Coast in 2006 only heightened my curiosities so much that I have started to attend college to become a chef.

However that just isn't enough for me....I decided to create a blog to share my recipes and thoughts and to get a feel in the world if what I do cook...actually appeals to people in general. With that said, I bring you Iron Chef Moo.
