Favorite DC recipes of all time

Many of us have used the recipes we've received from our DC friends. What are the one or two recipes that you've tried and have gotten absolute rave reviews from?
Also, please post not only the recipe, but the original poster.

Here are the two that I cannot do without:
I made the Konditor's orange cups many times, and each time they came out perfectly.
Rainee's marinade was an immediate success, which made my family make me promise that I wouldn't make any other for our new york steaks ever again!

Baked Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups
from Konditor

5 thin-skinned oranges, halved hemispherically
3 lbs sweet potatoes, pared and cut into large chunks
1 cup white granulated sugar
5 ounces uns. butter (plus another ounce for topping)
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 ounces peeled fresh gingerroot, grated

Using grapefruit knife, remove flesh from oranges over a sieve place above a bowl; reserve the juice. Squeeze remaining juice from fruit into the bowl. Measure out ½ cup orange juice; reserve remaining juice for another use.

Cook sweet potatoes in large, covered saucepan of boiling water for 20-30 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced w/ point of knife. Drain. Return sweet pots to saucepan. Heat over med. heat & shake pan about 1 min. Mash the potatoes. Add orange juice, sugar, 5 oz. butter, and seasonings; beat until combined.

Mound sweet potatoe mixture into orange shells; sprinkle the tops evenly w. grated ginger; dot w/ remaining ounce of butter. (The filled orange cups can be made ahead, covered and refrigerated for up to 6 hours.)

Bake the cups at 350 degrees until heated through, about 25 min.



Beer marinated grilled steak
from Rainee

12 oz beer (lager style)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar (jkath used balsamic vinegar)
1/4 cup ketchup
2 T coarse ground Dijon mustard
2 T minced garlic
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 T freshly ground pepper
1 t salt

Place steak in a resealable bag. In a bowl mix together all the marinade ingredients and pour over steak. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Cream of Celery Soup

What a great topic jkath! I am so glad you started this one. I am voting it 5 stars

Unfortunately I have forgotten who originally posted this (sorry whoever you are and THANK YOU) so if you recognize this as yours then please speak up!!!

Cream of Celery Soup

Ingredients:

1 head of celery
1 pound potatoes
1 large leek
5 cups chicken stock
2 ounces butter
salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Melt butter slowly in large pan. Add chopped vegetables. Mix all together thoroughly.
Cook slowly for 15 minutes then add stock and simmer for 25 minutes or until vegetables are cooked.
Cool slightly and puree in blender (I just use my immersion blender).
This soup can be frozen.

This thread is a great idea. Jkath, what do you do with the orange segments ?
My favorite (one of them ) is for Seafood Minestrone. Can't remember who posted it, but it is a great hit around here.

That's the beauty of the recipe! When I make these, I also plan to have a fruit salad, in which the orange pieces are used


and Kadesma, I need to give kudos to my friend, Darlene who originally gave me that cookie recipe for one of our yearly cookie exchange parties

Here is one I make all the time. Even better, my wife makes it all the time too. This is the one thing she makes that she feels confident that she does a good job.

This was originally posted by Audeo

BEST Banana Bread

2 cups AP flour
¾ cup sugar
½ cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, beaten
6 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt

Butter a non-stick bread pan, then flour well. (The flour is really important for the bread to “climb” against while baking. I had not done that before, and it makes a huge difference!)

Combine and mix well the following dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside:
2 cups AP flour
¾ cup sugar
½ cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt

In another medium bowl, coarsely smash 3 ripe bananas (use a large spoon or spatula and don’t puree – the banana needs to be chunky)

To the bananas, add and combine: (but try not to reduce the banana chunks)

2 large eggs, beaten
6 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently FOLD until the flour is thoroughly moistened. Pour into the prepared bread pan and spread the mixture evenly across the top.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree (F) oven for 45-50 minutes.
