View Full Version : SA Kitchen now open!

01-06-2007, 01:28 PM
It has been requested by a few members that we add a section here at SA for members to share recipes. At first I thought, "Why would we want that on a Steelers site?" But after thinking about it I though it would be a great idea! What goes better with some Steelers football (besides BEER of course...lol) then some great food!
Sooooo, by request the SA kitchen is now open for business!

I am a terrific cook and does most of cooking in our home. I have several recipes that I would like to share with you guys:

Ooey Gooey Peanut Butter and Fudge Brownies


3 cups sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

½ cup cooking oil

1 tablespoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

6 eggs, room temperature

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1-1/2 tsp. Baking power

¾ tsp. Salt

1 bag (10 oz.) peanut butter chips


1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

1/3 cup cooking oil

½ cup sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 eggs, room temperature

1 tablespoon vanilla


3 bars (1 oz. ea) unsweetened chocolate

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

2-2/3 cups powdered sugar

¼ cup water

1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ teaspoon salt

Batter: Preheat oven to 350o. Spray two 13x9x2 inch baking pans with cooking
spray. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Stir in oil and
vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a
small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt; blend well.
Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture, stirring constantly. Fold in
peanut chips. Evenly spread ¼ of the batter into one pan.

Filling: In a small bowl, cream together the peanut butter and the oil. Add
sugar and flour; blend well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth.
Carefully spread ½ of the filling mixture evenly over the batter in the pan.
Top filling with an additional ¼ of the batter and spread evenly. With a
knife, gently cut through layers to create a marble effect throughout the
brownies. Repeat this process with the remaining pan and remaining batter and
remaining filling. Bake for 30 minutes. Do not over bake.

Frosting: Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate and peanut
butter over LOW heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in
remaining ingredients; mix until smooth. If the frosting is too thick, add
additional water 1 tablespoon at a time. Spread frosting over brownies
immediately after baking. Cool in pans on wire racks. Makes 3 dozen brownies.
Preparation time: 40 minutes. Cooking time: 30 minutes
( These were a very big hit for the Super Bowl Party we threw last season when the Steelers won it all!!!)

(This dessert is one of my favorites to make and it is mmmm mmm delicious!!)


1 cup oreo cookie crumbs
1 cup Nilla wafer crumbs
4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Mix together and press onto bottom and sides of greased 9-inch
springform pan.

4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
15 Reese's cups, chopped

Preheat oven to 425.
Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time,
beating well after each. Add flour, sour cream, and vanilla. Pour
half of
batter in crust-lined pan. Sprinkle ReeseÕs on top. Pour remaining
over top. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 225 and
for an hour.

(This is a very excellent dish for any football game or gathering)

Artichoke and Sun-dried Tomato Pasta

1 (8 ounce) package fresh fettucine (I prefer linguini)
4 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package sliced mushrooms
1/2 medium onion, chopped
10 ounces marinated artichoke hearts
2/3 (8 ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes, packed
in oil
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 ripe tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup Parmesan cheese

1 Cook pasta in boiling water until done. Drain.

2 Melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Saute onions,
mushrooms, and garlic until tender. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes,
olives, artichoke hearts, wine, and lemon juice. Bring to a
boil; cook until liquid is reduced by a third, about 4 minutes.

3 Toss pasta with sauce. Top with tomatoes and cheese, add pepper to
taste, and serve.

(This seems to be a favorite among some of my friends when I lived in college, I made this for a study group gathering and was a big hit)

Mexican Mancotti

Serve this hearty entree with spanish rice, homemade salsa and tortilla chips.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 can ( 16 ounces) refried beans
2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 package (8 ounces) manicotti shells
2 1/2 cups of water
1 jar ( 16 ounces) picante sauce
2 cups ( 16 ounces) sour cream
1 cup ( 4 ounces) shredded monterey jack or mexican blend cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions
sliced ripe olives, optional

In a bowl combine the uncooked beef, beans, chili powder, and oregano. Spoon into uncooked manicotti shells; arrange in a greased 13-in.x9-in.x2 in. baking dish. Combine water and picante sauce; pour over shells. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Next day-
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Uncover; spoon sour cream over the top. Sprinklr with the cheese, onions and olives if desired. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
Makes 8 servings

hey, another steelers site i know has this, now it's starting to look like we are trying to be like that other site, i think you should just make this a subforum

This was done at the request of me and atleast one other person that I share recipes with on here. I do not know anything about any other Steelers site, this is the only one I have been to. I can assure you I did not request it to be like anyone else. Just wanted to give everyone the chance to see the recipes that have been swapped, cooked and enjoyed behind the scenes.

HoS, make a thread for any recipes you have. That way people can ask you questions about it without everyones getting in the way.

01-06-2007, 11:14 PM
I'll have some to share. Great idea! (I promise....no Croatian pizza!) LOL! :bigthumb:

Plus, it really helps when searching for a recipe if they have their own thread....JMHO, for what that is worth HOS....

02-12-2007, 12:42 PM
Had a party over the weekend....about 50 people. I used some recipes that were posted here. Kudos to you Mrs SF for your idea in having this recipe forum. It has been really helpful! Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to post the great recipes too! :bigthumb:

Just no flowers or any of that Martha Stewart stuff :lol:

It's not just me then--I can't STAND Martha Stewart--I don't even think she's human. NO one can be "that" perfect! :greengrin: I used to have the funniest joke about her--wish I could find it again to share on here...

The only recipe I can make involves toast and butter.
:hilarious: :hilarious:

I know how to make ceral

You should swap recipes with PITT :lol:

i actually can cook pretty good, no recipes for me though....i im a pro, its all up here *points to head*

I don't claim to be a "pro" (although I've been doin it for 30 years now) but like you, I don't use many recipies for meals (only when I'm lookin to try somethin new), so it'd be hard for me to share my "recipies" since I never measure anything, but I guess I could try. For myself, I generally go by how it looks, smells, and tastes. I don't even use recipies for homemade pies. I DO use them for cakes and cookies though...and have the best chocolate chip cookie one I've ever tasted that I will share when I can find it.

I make a mean chili. Also crab soup,

03-15-2010, 10:40 PM
here is a chili mac I love to make

1 pound corkscrew shaped pasta with lines or elbows with lines
2 pounds ground sirloin
2 tablespoons (2 turns around the pan in a slow stream) extra-virgin olive oil
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seed and chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 palm fuls) dark chili powder
2 tablespoons (1 palm ful) cumin
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce
Coarse salt
1 cup beer or beef broth
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice
1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
Chopped scallions, for garnish

In a large pot, boil pasta until al dente.

Meanwhile, in a big, deep pot, brown beef in oil over medium high heat. Add onions, peppers, and garlic. Season meat mixture with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, and salt. Cook together 5 minutes, stir in beer or broth, and reduce liquid by half, 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes.

Drain pasta. Add hot pasta to chili pot and stir to coat pasta evenly. Remove from heat and then put in a clear baking glass dish and bake on 350 for 30 min's. I like to cover with taco cheese before baking...
