Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)

  • Grünkernsuppe (Traditional German Spelt Soup)
  • Description
    • On Saturday, Russ and I traveled to Kansas City to do some shopping at IKEA, visit Weston Brewing in Weston, Missouri (we're enjoying beverages from there at this very moment), and visit the “Steamboat Arabia” museum. At the end of our day we enjoyed a lovely meal at Grünauer restaurant in a Frisco freight building behind beautiful Union Station. Because we dined there during Kansas City's Restaurant Week we had a 3 course meal to enjoy. This was the dish that Russ chose for his first course. The rest of the meal was average until we got to the Salted Caramel Pot de Creme we had for dessert. While it is not something we've made at home before, it WILL be something we do in the very near future. I love soup in the winter, especially with Pot de Creme for dessert.
  • Ingredients
    • ¼ cup Butter
    • 1 small Onion, minced
    • 1 large Carrot, minced
    • 6 fresh Mushrooms, minced
    • 6 oz. Spelt berries, crushed
    • 4 cups Broth (your choice of vegetable, chicken or beef)
    • ¼ cup “Real Bacon Bits” (or a few pieces fried then crumbled) – optional (or cooked and diced chicken, cooked sausage... the choices are endless!)
    • ½ cup Cream
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Directions
    • Over medium heat, sauté vegetables in the butter until beginning to get soft. Add crushed spelt berries to the vegetable mixture and saute for a few moments to release flavor. Do not burn the berries. If the berries begin to brown, remove from heat immediately. Add broth and meat to the vegetable/berry medley and simmer over low heat for approximately 2 hours. Remove from heat. Garnish each bowl with salt, pepper and a drizzle of cream over the top of the soup. You will stir the cream in just before you eat it. This recipe will make 4-6 servings.
  • Notes
    • Spelt berries (NOT flour) can be purchased at your local natural food store. Or you can get it online or locally through akin.com. Amazon carries it as well. Look for “Bob's Red Mill Spelt Berries." This soup is very forgiving regarding the ingredients. Leave meat out, leave vegetables out, add different (or more) meat, add different (or more) veggies; the choice is yours. As the recipe is written, it is a brothy soup similar to chicken noodle soup in taste and consistency. If you'd like a thicker soup, you can puree' everything together.

  • New Merch Options Coming Up

  • Fedora Ambassador, LHS Listeners, at SCaLE
    • If you're headed to SCaLE 14x in Pasadena, California this month, make sure to visit the Fedora booth. Matt Williams, KD9BWJ, aka Lord Drachenblut, will be one of the ambassadors there. He'd love for everyone to stop by and say hello.

Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)

  • Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
  • Description
    • In the winter, I am a huge fan of soups... especially ones that can be done in the crockpot. So, this week I share with you my recipe for Chicken and Dumplings, done in the crockpot (which Russ hates). It's great to come home to this, ready after work!
  • Ingredients
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
    • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
    • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • 1 onion, finely diced
    • 1-2 cans Chicken Broth
    • 2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
  • Directions
    • Place the chicken, butter, soup, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, onion powder, salt, pepper and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough chicken broth to cover. Cover and cook for 6 hours on high. About 2 hours before serving (4 hours into the cooking time), remove the chicken and shred. Put back into slow cooker and place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker and "stir" the dough into the liquid. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center (approximately 6 hours).

  • Google Plus Post from John McGrath, KF6EFG
    • I went out to the site to follow the link to LiHaLo and noticed that the show is boasting that is has only 3% more badgers. Unfortunately, this falls below my threshold for badger related material, and I will have to stop listening until the podcast/site exceeds the 4% badger limit. Happy New Year! Great show regarding SCaLE this week. Keep up the good work! 73's, KF6EFG.

Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)

  • Parmesan Crusted Chicken
  • Description
    • Parmesan-crusted chicken a golden, cheesy delight! This recipe can be made with different types of dressing so that it tastes slightly different each time.
  • Ingredients
    • 1 cup Russian dressing (see Options)
    • 2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal, coarsely crushed
    • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 to 2 pounds total)
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the dressing in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the crushed cereal and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Dip the chicken in the dressing then in the cereal mixture, coating completely. Place on the baking sheet. Drizzle the butter over the chicken and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken.
  • Options
    • If Russian dressing isn't your preferred flavor, you can use any type of creamy dressing like ranch or sweet-and-spicy French.
