Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Fried Chicken A L'italienne

chicken, italian

1 chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1 tomato batter
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup oil
1 tomato sauce

Rather suspiciously, this dish was also know as fried chicken al la Mexicaine. The old-fashioned tomato sauce does not taste much like the tomato sauces we know today; it's tart and work better as a condiment on the side than as a sauce to be poured over (though it is exactly the sort of tomato sauce that was served on pasta 100 years ago). Serve with peas and mashed potatoes. From "The Original White House Cookbook" (1887), by Hugo Ziemann & Mrs. F.L. Gillette. Dip chicken pieces in Tomato Batter. In large skillet melt butter with oil. Add chicken pieces two at time and fry until brown (more than two pieces at time can be fried as long as pieces are not crowded). Serve, passing hot Tomato Sauce.
