Cooking with soda water or pop (as they call it down South)

RICHMOND — It amazes me how things can turn out when you add pop (I am a southern gal) to a recipe. I have tried some of these recipes I am sharing with you just to let you know it can be done.

7-UP OR SPRITE BISCUITS

INGREDEINTS:

2 cups of Bisquick

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup 7-up or Sprite

1/4 cup melted butter

DIRECTIONS:

Add sour cream and Bisquick together. Add the pop. This dough will be soft to the touch. Sprinkle additional Bisquick on to a board and gently pat the dough out to desired thickness.  (About 1 inch). Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut the biscuits. Place the melted butter into a 9x9 pan. Place biscuits in the pan and bake in a 450 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.

GLAZE FOR A MEAT LOAF

Pour a 10 oz. bottle of a coke product into a saucepan. Cook on high till the product is reduced for 10 to 15 minutes. Add half cup of ketchup, one tablespoon of mustard and one clove of minced garlic. Let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and pour over entire meat loaf. I usually bake for 45 to 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Another way to use pop is in your crock pot. This is a good recipe for use of pop as a meat tenderizer.

CROCK POT TENDERIZER FOR MEAT

Place your choice of meat (roast or stew meat) in a crock pot. Add one 12 oz. can of a Coke product. Add one packet of onion soup mix. Set the crock pot on the low setting. Allow the meat to cook for at least 10 hours.

You may remember my story a couple of weeks ago about my experience with Dr. Pepper and it blowing up in the drug store parking lot.

I really thought it was a sign to give it all up — wrong. I am still addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper.

My favorite use of pop is to put a package of salted peanuts into my Dr. Pepper. Please tell me there are other nut lovers out there who do this as well.

One of my friends one day thought I was drinking a pop with bugs in it. Oh, the treats we carry from our childhood. Growing up on a peanut farm in Gorman, Texas, there was only way to drink a great pop and that was with peanuts in the bottle.

I can’t let you leave without giving you my favorite recipe with the use of POP.

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.
