White Castle Pie...

So...I've been meaning to make Linda Sue's White Castle Pie (I don't know how to link the recipe...but you should be able to search it or maybe someone else can help and post a link.) for a long time, but finally just made it tonight.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm...It was delicious!

But...I think it's precious that Linda Sue lists the nutritional info for 1/8 of a pie and 1/6 of a pie. HA! How about more like 1/4 or 1/3 of the pie! No way was I stopping at an eighth or a sixth! Too delicious. So...I did take a hit as far as calories go, but actually probably balanced out OK for the day as I hadn't had much to eat earlier and have been running around a lot today. And I kept the carbs lower by using the onion powder and minced onion rather than the onion soup mix.

Thanks Linda Sue! I'm going to keep working my way through your site!

Cheers!
Katie

Do you think anyone has ever been able to eat one eighth (or in some cases one twelfth) of any Linda Sue recipe? Have you tried the spinach lasagna yet? It is awesome.

This is a great idea. I am going to get a binder. Do you write notes on them and seperate them by catagory or it that going to far?

I have recipes from various places (though I do love Linda's site) and I have mine in a binder, laminated (for easy clean up of spills) and put into categories. I can't believe I just admitted that out loud...lol. I also have a section at the front where I put the recipes that I want to try for the week. That way they are handy for when I need them.

I feel so geeky now...lol :blush:.

Dont feel geeky. I do it to. Thing is, I have been planning to get a binder and a hole puncher, but have not gotten around to it. I have a huge stack of papers in a drawer that are all sectioned off and ready to put put into a book. I think its a great idea!

Thanks guys. I am going to do this. Not sure about the laminating, could get spendy. maybe invest in some plastic covers and put the recipe I am making in that to protec it from spills. But I do like the idea about putting the new recipes or ones I intend on making up front. I need to get organized now for 09 success.

I have the recipes separated by main dish, side dish, desserts, etc.

I have a binder and I seperate by categories. Beef, Chicken, Soups, Desserts etc.
In my free time I search ALL over for recipes that sound really easy and good to me and I hit print and hole punch and put it in the binder. It comes out mostly in the winter, where there are more reasons to make casseroles and hot soups!!!

And yea, who ever eats 1/8th of anything. It's why we're all here! LMAO

I'm with you, I love Linda's site and her recipes. I've had a binder of her recipes for a long time. Never thought to put the ones I want to cook for the next week in the front. Duh!

My DH loves her Seoul Chicken. Mmmmm, tasty. He's even learned to make it.

I have a 12 inch long under cabinet mounted recipe box with the standard index. Each recipe title is underlined with a marker color and on the front of the box is a card that says:

(green) GO: Low Carb, Healthy
(blue) OK: For Family, Healthy
(red) STOP! Think about it!!!!

I have also tried many of her quiches and recipes. All of them are great but never tried the white castle pie. I have heard good things about it in this board. I guess its time to make it.

I had a 2 inch thick stack of lc recipes and could never find what I was looking for so I bought a 3 inch 3 ring notebook, a hole puncher, and those little white sticky round things to protect the holes. I categorized, numbered the pages, and the best thing is the index that I made. I now can find anything! I also make notes on the recipes, rate them, and toss the ones that don't work for me. Took some time to compile but saves me lots of time now!

You know what works really well for me to keep things from spilling on my recipe... A magnetic clip. Stick it to your frigde, clip it in, and you can just take a look at it when you need to. It keeps it off the counter. And it keeps it clean

Hey, you're all internet savvy, obviously, or you wouldn't be here:

Why not leave those sticky, yicky 20th Century binders behind and step into the 21st Century world of Recipezaar(.com) or AllRecipes(.com)? There you can input and store your favorite recipes, easily change serving sizes on the fly, input nutrition stats, print out as needed, etc. Bet you could practically cut and paste from most online recipe sources without even having to type them in from scratch. . . .

Nope, I'm not affiliated with those sites, just a cook who is delighted to have been freed from paper tyranny.

Maybe it's a generational thing?

I actually have recipes both online and on my hard drive, but I prefer keeping them in a binder. It seems like I can never find what I'm looking for when it's stored digitally. Plus, I like seeing the entire recipe every time I see the title. And flipping pages to discover recipes that I had forgotten about.

If I'm going to take the time to type a recipe into the computer, I much prefer Master Cook's nutritional analysis.

I'm not going to put my laptop on the kitchen counter and risk spilling milk on the keyboard. So if I'm going to print out the recipes anyway, it makes more sense to keep the hard copy.

For me, technology is mostly useful when it solves a problem. Online recipe storage doesn't solve a problem -- doing it the "old-fashioned" way is actually more efficient (for me.)

But that's just me and I'm sure there are people who love the online recipe boxes.

Oh, of course, whatever works for you. And it may very well be a generational thing -- I think it was easy for me to use the online service because I started collecting my recipes that way -- I didn't have to take the time to convert them from hard copies passed from previous generations or sources. I only began collecting recipes when I began low-carbing -- prior to that I did NO cooking, believe me, unless you call my obese body sweating in a non-airconditioned car while waiting in a Burger King drive-thru "cooking."

I currently have over 300 recipes stored on RecipeZaar -- don't know what I would do if I didn't have the search feature there. . . .

Just don't forget to save the recipes you load there to your own hard drive somehow (I use the "save file as" feature in my browser) in case their servers ever permanently crash, the company goes under, etc.
