America Choice is…. Drum roll Please!

America has made its choice, and the choice is……

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE REVEAL! 

Dan was picked to be the have not of the week ( Dan has never been a have not in all his time in the BB house) and Jenn has actually accepted the role of have not for the rest of the summer (Spoiler keeps me from telling you how that happened).   She is not allowed to have the added bonus foods, so her time in the BB house is going to be tough!

Mozzarella and Matzo is a pretty interesting choice and opens up all kinds of possibilities.  Yesterday was a pretty tense day in the house ( as you live feed watchers know), and even with the crazy tension and “day drinking” that Ian and Frank did, Joe still came through and made some pretty incredible cheese sticks!

Yummy and delicious, Dan has it made with America’s Choice!

Have nots get a week off! MadLoveCooking with Joe

The big brother contestants have it smooth and easy this week, or do they?  There was no have not competition this week so everyone has had a chance to rebuild their stamina and get creative in the kitchen.  Joe is the man (check out his facebook @MadloveCooking), and created a couple of treats for the other house guests over the last few weeks and because everyone raved so much, we’re going to bring you those recipes here!  

Joe has made a couple of Avocado Cheesecakes and from what I hear, this is an amazing dish that has lots of flavor and good healthy proteins!

Photos of Joe creating the Avocado Cheesecake

Avocado Cheesecake

Ingredients    

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 16 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 medium-sized avocados
  • 2 teaspoons of lime zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Put almonds into chopper and pulse until finely chopped. Add graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter, and pulse until just blended. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan. Set aside.

Before starting your cream cheese mixture, allow all ingredients to reach room temperature. Letting the cream cheese, eggs, and sour cream reach room temperature will help the cheesecake from cracking. In a mixer combine cream cheese and sugar, and blend until smooth. Add eggs one at a time until they are incorporated into the batter.

Place avocados into a food processor, and pulse until they are smooth, add lime zest, lime juice and sour cream, and pulse until you have a uniform mixture, add the avocado mixture into the cream cheese, and mix well. Pour into spring form pan. Bake for 45 minutes, check to see if the cheesecake is set, it should still have a small jiggle in the middle when you bump the pan.

Remove from oven, and cool completely on a rack. Chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Other than a good deal of Fruit Loops, and boxed calories the house guests have been eating Joe’s cooking. Oh Joe… gotta wash those hands!  One of the favorites is Chips and guacamole.  While I did not catch Franks recipe on the show (gotta love BB fish!) I do have a fantastic recipe for it, and I’ll share it with you!  

RobinPickles Yummy Guacamole

  • 3 Avocados
  • 1/2 cup Minced Cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime
  • 2 to 4 Diced Small Roma Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Minced Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Take all ingredients and place in a bowl unmixed.  Using two large spoons, begin slowly mixing by making a cutting type motion with both spoons (as if you were using a knife and fork to cut meat) and keep smashing the avocados with the spoons, keep it moving until a nice green “paste” has formed and all ingredients seem to be mixed well.  Chill for about an hour and serve with white corn tortilla chips.  Happy Crunching!

Stay Tuned for more action from the BB house.  Things on the feeds are hot hot hot, and this weeks live show on Wednesday at 8:00PM on CBS!

Joe Gone Wild In the BB Kitchen

Joe really was in a creative and mood to cook yesterday!  It could also be because Joe is a have not this week.  Hunger, in the Big Brother house when your a have not, can get pretty intense, and uncomfortable. Slop was created by the producers as a food substitute and is not supposed to be a breeze for the house-guests. America’s choice for the have-nots’ this week is Cod and Candy Canes. As we talked about, the house guests got  all sorts of flavors of candy canes but only one choice in fish, and that is Cod.

Shane is sad he is on slop.. he’s starving and looses an average of 10 pounds in a week while on slop.

The BB kitchen is overrun with ants, and with Cooking!!!  

Frank gets rid of an ant he found in the kitchen!

Cod isn’t one of my personal  favorite fishes, but if I was that hungry or needed nutrition I’d use every creative bone in my body to get the job done!  A few things I’ve thought of making would be Cod Nuggets/fish-sticks, fish soup which could be milk based almost like a chowder, pan seared fish encrusted with slop and maybe even cod roll ups!!!

Joe’s slop burgers have gotten rave reviews, and even the have’s have tasted them and said they were pretty edible.  I have not seen Joe make these as of yet, but I am working on finding out just what is going into them.

Ashley and Jenn hanging out in the kitchen

Joe has said he would like to have his own cooking show on TV, and has been holding regular cooking sessions in the BB kitchen.  He said that the show would be all about cooking with what you have available and I encourage Joe and others to check out another one of my blogs on WordPress called “Cook Something From Nothing” which is pretty much the idea.  When Joe started his mock show, he had it all planned out and introduced us to his newest dish:

Homemade Cod Fillets w/ Salsa Sauce

Ingredients – 1 Step Salsa

Note:  Joe said the reason he could use the following ingredients is because they were “IN” the canned salsa that is on the approved Have not condiment list.  This was questioned, and BB told them they could in future only use the actual ingredient provided by BB and not re-create it with fresh ingredients.  (drats foiled again!)

  • Cherry Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Whole Lime
  • Hot Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Avocado (Big Brother made him remove this before they ate it!)

Instructions

Add all ingredients to blender, pulse slowly until blended to your desired consistency (about 8-10 pulses), set aside.

Ingredients – Cod Fillets

  • Cod Fillets
  • Olive Oil
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

Prepare your cod fillets by coating them lightly in olive oil placing them on a baking sheet lined with Tin foil and sprinkling them with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, cover and let rest for about 5 min.

Plate fish and ladle sauce over the fish.

As for the cooking show, it was over as soon as the food was ready.  The have nots were ready to eat a good meal, but did complain a bit (well it was Brittney) that the fish had bones galore.  

Brittney.. Just shoot me, I’m so hungry!

  

Be sure to stay tuned to Slop Du Jour to keep up on What’s cookin’ in the BB house and see what the have nots are eating!

Joe is Cookin’ for the Have Nots

It was Monday morning in the Big Brother house, and day 4 of being on slop.  Joe got creative this morning and decided to create some breakfast for the house guests.  A concoction that Joe called “Dolce de Leche slop bread with butterscotch topping”.   A very creative idea, and FANTASTIC use of the multi-flavored candy canes that were given to this weeks have-nots.

Joe the Chef has his own Restaurant in Indiana

A very nice breakfast type “bread” with a sweet candy topping

Joe’s Dulce de Leche Slop Bread

Dulce de Leche – Prepare First

Ingredients

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 vanilla bean
  • 2 Butterscotch Candy Sticks
  • 3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring milk to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth. Return to pan.
Cut vanilla bean in half and pour the seeds in the milk. Stir in the sugar and replace the pan on medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Just as the milk mixture begins to boil, stir in the baking soda. Reduce the heat to medium, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. When a wooden spoon drawn through the mixture leaves the bottom of the pan visible, and the mixture is light brown in color, remove the pan from the heat.
Place the pan in an ice bath and stir constantly until dulce de leche is cold. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

The finished product and 4 very hungry house guests breakfasts!

Bread Mixture

  • 3 cups Big Brother Slop Mixture
  • 1-2 cups milk (add slowly until batter texture is reached)
  • 1 cup sugar or equivalent sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

Generously butter a 9×13 inch baking dish.

In same pan, whisk together all ingredients and bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Bake the bread pudding for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top is golden, and the middle is firm.

Let cool a bit, serve in slices on plates and drizzle

Serve hot and spoon dulce de leche over the hot bread pudding and finish off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

America’s Vote… Big Brother’s way of game manipulation

Going into Thursday nights live eviction show, it had been a 1 in 7 chance for the house-guests to win a half a million dollars.  Now its back to a mere 1 in 12 shot at the coveted prize.  How did this all happen in 15 minutes into the live show?  It is Big Brother and expect the unexpected is the key to the game.

During the live show and because of America’s vote, the coach’s were given the choice to get back in the game or remain coaches.  If any one coach depressed the plunger the scheduled eviction of either Frank or Joe would be cancelled, and the game re-set and all 12 house guests would become equal players.

All the coach’s accepted except for Boogie, and the eviction was cancelled.  This means a total re-set back to 12 players, and a new start to the Big Brother 14 season.

Because of the oddity of the twist, all house guests were allowed to compete in the “Walk the Plank” competition for HOH, which was an endurance contest in which each house guest perched on a plank on the BB ship and moves and water is dumped on them and they are occasionally splattered with seagull droppings.

The house guests compete in HOH for control over who is nominated for eviction.

Right before the competition started Dan told Boogie that without the twist Frank would have gone home. This is shocking news for Boogie because it is known to him that certain people (Wil and Danielle) have been lying to him for the last week. A win for Boogie is huge if he wants to stay in the house.

Standing on a small wooden plank while holding onto a metal bar, it seems obvious that this competition is geared toward smaller petite individuals. It was at about 1 hour that people started falling (maybe jumping) off.  The First was Boogie, followed by Jenn and Joe around the 70 minute mark. Ashley fell off 40 minutes later, followed by Dan.

Shane, Wil, Janelle, Brittany, Ian, Danielle and Frank still hung on and were giving their all to win HOH.  It is really everyone vs. Frank because a Frank win means a Boogie win. Frank falls off and everyone seems relieved.  Wil and Shane decide to jump off together (although Shane hesitated just slightly at 3!) leaving Janelle, Brittany, Ian and Danielle left in the competition.

The final 3 are Ian, Danielle and Brittany with Danielle appearing rock solid.  Ian starts to make a deal with Danielle and this upsets Dan. Dan puts on his coaching hat and gives a great motivational speech to his solo player, Danielle.  Boogie and Frank go off into the house and leave Ian hanging on the wall all by himself .

Ian with his last bits of strength held on to  make a deal to protect himself this week.  Brittany then asked Danielle for safety which she offered quickly and Danielle became the first female HOH of season 14.

In honor of this weeks lack of have-nots, and famous BB twist, I’m going to share with you readers my favorite recipe for Knotted Pretzels!  If the house guests were have nots this week, they could surely make this to help ease house boredom.  You can make it for a snack while you indulge in the feeds!  Happy BB viewing!  Stay tuned for more Slop Du Jour and news on what’s cooking in the Big Brother 14 house!

Make any shape you can think up, just remember to follow the directions!

Knotted Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1 packet rapid-rise yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 4 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees F)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Cooking spray (to grease bowl)
  • 2/3 cup baking soda
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 egg yolk with 1 Tablespoon water
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Flaked Sea Salt, Pretzel Salt or Kosher Salt

Directions
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, sugar, salt and water.  Stir until yeast is dissolved.  Using the dough hook attachment, add melted butter and flour and knead/mix until the dough comes together and pulls cleanly away from the sides of the bowl.  If dough continues to stick, add flour 1 teaspoon at a time until dough becomes smooth.  Once dough is smooth, knead with dough hook on medium-low speed for about 5 minutes.  Form dough into a ball and place in a large bowl sprayed with cooking spray.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Line two cooking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mat and set aside (near stovetop…this is where you’ll place the pretzels immediately after boiling.  Bring 10 cups of water to a boil in a large stock pan, and add 2/3 cups of baking soda.  Reduce heat to maintain a low simmering boil.

Flour a working surface, then separate dough into eight equal sized balls.  Roll each ball into 22-inch long strips.  Form each strip into a pretzel shape.  Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.

Working one at a time, drop pretzels carefully into boiling water.  Allow to boil for 30 seconds.  Remove from water using a large slotted spoon and place onto parchment covered cooking sheet.  Repeat with remaining pretzels.

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg yolk and 1 Tablespoon of water.  Use a pastry brush to brush boiled pretzels with the egg wash.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until dark golden brown.  Remove from oven and move pretzels to a wire rack.

Melt 4 Tablespoons of unsalted butter and liberally brush each pretzel with butter, then sprinkle with salt.

Coaches Competition and The Vote is in!

Jedi Janey!

This week on Big Brother, Janelle won the Coaches Comp and saved Wil from eviction this week.  As each coach was eliminated from the competition a locker was opened revealing a task that each coach must perform.   

Mike Boogie surprised no one and picked himself for the $6,000 prize. Would you have picked yourself for the biggest prize?

Mike “Boogie” picked the locker containing  $10,000, but he had to share pre-determined amounts with two other players.  He chose to give  Ian $3,000 and Jenn got $1,000, he kept $6,000 for himself.  Dan picked the option to trade players, and he declined to use it.  Britney picked the locker with “slop” in it, and had to choose the have-nots for the week.  Brittney chose Ian and Wil to endure slop this week.

The Vote is in!  

America, you voted for the two foods that the have-nots would have available to eat along with slop and approved condiments and the winner is… (drum roll please!)

America, saw it fit to be pretty generous this week.  The have-nots are allowed to eat cereal and salmon in addition to the slop and approved condiments allowed by the rules of Big Brother (see earlier posts for lists of ingredients!)  This makes for pretty easy living in the BB house, but its been a rough start for the players so maybe they deserve a break.   Ian expressed his thanks to the viewers because he loves both of items on the table.  Ian has volunteered for slop all three weeks, and I think it might be playing a part and giving him a needed edge to keep off the chopping block.  

Looks like a colorful Kebab in the BB house this week

Here is a simple recipe for salmon with any crunch cereal that could be used by any slop eating house guest.  

Salmon with Crunchy Cereal Coating

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup Cereal (1/3 cup coarsely crushed)

1/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup snipped fresh basil

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 salmon fillets, skinned (about 6 oz. each)

DIRECTIONS

Coarsely crush cereal. In a small bowl, combine butter, basil, Parmesan, lemon peel, garlic, and pepper; stir in cereal. Rinse fish; pat dry.  Measure the thickness of the fish for later heating times.  Place fish on the greased rack of a broiler pan. Spoon cereal mixture on top of fillets; pat gently to spread.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork. For food safety, the internal temperature of the fish should be a minimum of 145 degrees F.   

Serve hot and enjoy!

More from the BB house soon!  

JoJo Its Time to Go… Plus a New Vote on America’s Twist!

Last night was eviction night in the BB house once again, and this week it was JoJo’s time to depart.  

Danielle and JoJo sit in on the block waiting for a verdict as to who has been evicted.

After last week, and Willie’s volatile departure and expulsion from the game, this week was much quieter in the house and the drama reduced to a minimal amount.  On last nights live show,  JoJo , the 26-year-old bartender from Staten Island, NY, was evicted from the BB house with  a 5-1 vote after being placed on the chopping block by newbie houseguest Frank Eudy, the season’s second Head of Household.  I was not personally sad to see her go, I did not like her arguments for wanting to stay in the house.  Everyone who makes it in the BB house deserves to have a full chance at the prize, being there and going with the program does not entitle you to keep playing.  In order to play you must have the votes to stay!  Sorry JoJo, maybe Rock of Love is a better show for you to have a go at!  Bye bye!

The HOH competition was also held live last night in the BB house.  Big Brother set up a mock Ice hockey arena was in the backyard and each player had a turn to shoot a ball into a rack of ball catchers which were assigned point values.  Shane was the victor after he shot a perfect 20 and beat Ian’s previous high score of 12.  

Shane’s winning shot on goal for a perfect 20!

and no other player was able to match or beat his shot on goal.  Brittney was very happy as Shane is her last player and is keeping her in the BB house.. for now… stay tuned!

Brittney hugs Shane in excited mode!

 

The Twist and Vote!

How will America vote! Will the vets be allowed to join the game??? We’ll find out next time on BB14!

Will America decide to let the veterans into the game?  What will happen to the $100,000 prize if they do enter the game?  Will the newbies be angry and ban together to bring victory to a new player?  Will the vets come together and pick off the newest BB players one by one!?  Stay tuned, it should be exciting to see what happens!  We’ll let you know the results of the coaches competition and the Have Not Vote as it happens LIVE in the Big Brother 14 house!   Stay Tuned!  

America its time to Vote!

It’s time once again to vote for the Have Not’s additional treats for the week!  Cereal and salmon, garbanzo Beans and giblets and lima beans and lemons are among the choices for the house-guests in week 3 in the house!  None of which are particularly appealing.  I can see several of the items being great for creative eating!  

Cereal and salmon, garbanzo Beans and giblets and lima beans and lemons are among the choices for the house-guests in week 3 in the house!

I hope america serves something yummy so we can get super creative with the ingredients!  Joe has been serving up some treats over the last week, he even made Slop Taco’s!  Sadly BB live feeds have been skipping a good deal of the cooking this season, so we’ll keep trying to work with what we can and bring you creative culinary recipes and creations from inside the BB 14 house! 

One Fruit loop Gone….The Slop must go on!

Its been a few days now since the expulsion of Willie Hantz from the Big Brother house, and now the house-guests are settling back into the game.  The have 4 nots have been selected by Janelle the Winner of the coaches competition we saw on Sunday’s broadcast.  Willie (my last mention of this guy), Shane, JoJo and Ian were selected for the dreaded punishment.  It was said and seen that Ian half volunteered for the slop; he raised his hand and was picked simultaneously.  America voted and made its decision of Pudding and Pork Rinds. 

Jedi Janie and Ashley make Apple Crisp!

Janelle has been on a cooking spree and she and Ashley got creative and made Apple crisp and sugar cookies from scratch last night.  It was a “little bit of this” and a “little bit of that concoction, but if you’d like to try creating this culinary delight at home, try this recipe!

Apple Crisp

Apple Mix

  • 8 medium baking apples (green or McIntosh work great!)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

Mix the Apple mix in a bowl and don’t taste test too much!

Directions: Chop apples into small chunks or slices, add cinnamon, white sugar, and mix thoroughly.  Set Aside

Topping:

  • 1 cup quick oats or crushed granola (OR SLOP!)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Lightly Melted Butter
  • 4 Tbsp Flour

Directions: Sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar in a bowl.  Add flour to melted butter and mix until all flour is dissolved.  Mix sugar mixture and butter mix together and mix thoroughly.  Bake at 325 degrees for 20 min or until browned and bubbly.  Remove from oven, and let rest.  Serve with Whipped or Ice Cream! 

Joe the chef has been making a family style meal since the beginning of the game, and has easily and simply made dinners for the have nots including slop burgers, and slop meatballs.  Here is a look at the list of condiments (BIG BROTHER UPDATE THIS PLEASE!)  that the have-nots are allowed to consume along with Slop and Protein drinks.

The house guests take time to give thanks for their feast!

balsamic vinegar, olive oil, red wine vinegar, rice vinegar, vegetable oil, hot sauce, ketchup, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, relish, salsa, soy sauce, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, black pepper, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, salt, vanilla, basil, bay leaves, cinnamon, leaf oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, brown sugar, artificial sweetener, powdered creamers, white sugar, tea and protein powder.

Of course we can’t forget about America’s choice items which can add to the creative dishes made each week.  If you have a suggestion for this weeks Pork Rinds and Pudding, send it in!  Someone in BB Chat room 5 suggested frozen pudding pops of all flavors!  Maybe the pork rinds should be used to en-crust a slop patty! I have heard that bacon makes everything taste better… will pork rinds?

Stay tuned for more on how the house-guests get creative and I report on what’s cooking in the Big Brother house!

It is Game On! Your Chance Decide What’s being Served to the Have Not’s!

It’s game on in the Big Brother 14 house, and the first week of Have Nots is almost over.  In our first week of the house-guests experiencing what is in store for the  Have Nots this season.  In the first week, each have not was hand-picked by each of the coaches.  Boogie selected Ian after giving him “safety” for the week.  Britney picked Shane, Dan chose Danielle and Janelle named Ashley to be have nots for the week (this is new to this year!).  There was no America’s choice for the first week, but the first week is always a crude reminder of how difficult it can be to live on Big Brother Slop.  

Shane reported in that he lost 12 pounds living on slop in the first week.  Ashley had complaints about her back, and Danielle’s face was imprinted with the grate marks from the metal slab she is attempting to get her beauty sleep on.  Life is tough in the Big Brother house, but it always seems worth it for a chance at $500,000 bucks!
