Alter Idem's Pancakes

Can add extras to your liking. Faves include 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar or 3/4 cup frozen blueberries, thawed, pressed, with juice.

Incredible! (1 rating)

These worked for me at 7000 feet. If you're under 3500ft, add 1/4 tsp baking powder.

This recipe has been passed on from my husband's family.

Stuffed Mushrooms, No Breadcrumbs

This is not health food, but it's great for parties and one won't hurt you.

Not even pretending this is health food. From

PB Loco Chicken Satay


Alter Idem's Green Chile Quiche

Makes 2. One with sausage for me. One without sausage for my husband.

Alter Idem's Parmesan Chicken Strips

Of course most of the coating is not eaten since it never gets on the chicken, but it's hard to calculate just how much is missed.

Ultimate High Altitude Chocolate Chip Cookies

l.aspx I live at 7000 feet and never thought cookies would work. These do.

New Mexico Enchiladas - Red

My husband's recipe after much experimentation trying to copy The Shed in Santa Fe's recipe. He got it.

As listed is for 2 servings. Can be multiplied or divided as necessary. Easily vegetarian by substituting canola oil for lard.

Rice Pudding

Modified from JKAPLAN86's Amazing Rice Pudding

Alter Idem's Beef Corn Tomato Rice Stuff

I just threw together what I could find in my pantry on the day before payday. It worked. Great use for leftover rice.

Chruesi Muesi

Made by my husband's Swiss family. Good luck finding the sauces and veal bratwurst on American soil. We resorted to the internet.

Very filling.

Alter Idem's Meatballs

Also makes a great meatloaf with a little ketchup.

Que Pasa Chips Breakfast Chilaquiles

From the bag of Que Pasa Blue Corn Tortilla Chips

Mushroom Soup

A great recipe was given to us by a chef at a restaurant. My husband has altered it to our tastes to give you what you see here. The truffle oil makes all the difference in the world.

Alter Idem's Hamburger Soup

Crock pot soup. Can also be made on the stove.

Velveeta Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese

From the inside of the Velveeta package

Alter Idem's Take on Meatloaf

Everyone has their own recipe. This is mine. I think. I usually throw in whatever is around, but these ingredients are generally there. Great home cookin'.

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Great for the occasional somewhat healthy splurge. Also hard to mess up.

Salmon with Lemon and Onion

My husband got me to eat salmon with this recipe and now I love it. Use wild Pacific Salmon if you can get it.

Field Camp No Bean White Chicken Chili

I've had trouble finding a white chili without beans. At my senior Geography field camp, my prof made this and served it to me without garbanzo beans. I added corn myself to give it a little something else.
