Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Crab Stuffed Mushrooms with Olive Oil and Garlic

    This is really simple, but gives great results.

    There is even a nice olive oil sauce to dip fresh made pitas in when the mushrooms are gone.

    I used two 2.5 oz envelops of crab. It would probably be even better with fresh lump crab.. But I don't know if the extra cost would be worth it. So save the lump crab for crab cakes.

    Anyways ..

    2 packages of crab, cans would probably be fine.
    16 Medium sized fresh mushrooms, stems removed (save for the pizzas)
    1 and 1/2 slices of bread, divided ( I used honey wheat)
    3 or 4 or 5 cloves of garlic or more or less or less or more. Use plenty!
    Plenty of olive oil, use the good stuff!
    Freshly grated Parmesan. Dave forbids using the stuff in the green can!
    Freshly grated mozzarella/muenster. I combine the two- 3 parts mozzarella to 1 part muenster.
    Fresh ground pepper.

    1. Oil an oven proof dish (or two) with olive oil.
    2. Drain crab.
    3. Turn the bread slice into fine bread crumbs. I use my spice grinder. Make sure it has no leftover spices in it. (If I do I usually grind up a throw-away piece of bread first. Just to remove any remnants. ) Or use store bought. About 3/4s of a cup.
    4. In a bowl combine the crab, bread crumbs, a tablespoon or two of Parmesan, and fresh pepper(to your taste, I like more than most) Don't over mix, just mix until combined. Hands work great for this., and leave some crab chunks.
    5. Place about a tablespoon of the mixture into each upside down mushroom cap.
    6. Place mushrooms in dish or two, I put 8 caps into each dish. Try and get enough mushrooms in the dish for a nice tight fit. This all is dependent on the size of the mushrooms.
    7. Sprinkle the stuffed mushrooms with the leftover half-a-piece of bread crumbs (see step 3)
    8. Now drizzle olive oil over the tops of all the mushrooms. Don't be afraid here. It's best to have plenty at the bottom of the dish. I would say about 3/16ths of an inch or more! It makes a nice dipping sauce.
    9. Take the garlic cloves, peel them and course cut them. Really course, and stuff them around the mushrooms so they rest in the olive oil.
    10. Bake in the entry of your oven, further back for more heat, if needed.
    11. Turn several times. To cook each side evenly.
    12. When the bread crumbs begin to brown and the mushrooms and garlic are sizzling, spread about a 1/2 a cup of mozzarella on top of each dish of mushrooms. (smells really good at this point)
    13. With pizza peel, hold dish close to the heated dome for a quick browning.
    14. Serve on individual plates, or spoons, for that matter.
    15. Cook some pitas for dipping in the garlic/mushroomed flavored sauce on the bottom. (maybe the best part)

    Yikes, I said it was simple. It really is though.
    Just get close on these measurements. I don't usually use measuring tools, just blow and go. It will be fine. And adjust for you own tastes.

    One more thing.. I did sort of trim the mushrooms a bit. To make a bigger cavity for stuffing.

    Enjoy!

    Dave, those look AWESOME! Not only can you build economically, but you can cook some mean meals with great recipies.
    I tell you, it sucks not having my oven built and listening to the new graduating class of oven builders this semester. All these great foods to be shared and for me to be pushed towards finishing (slowly by winter's cold).

      Thanks Acoma!

      But give them a try in your regular oven. You will get good result there too.

        My wife uses the oven for her stuffed mushrooms, and I will tell you, she never makes enough.

          I have been meaning to try this ever since you posted it...

          and yesterday I did...

          only I forgot to check the recipe beforehand and only remembered the bit about it being really simple... and no one in my family except from me likes crab anyway...

          So my mushrooms only had olive oil, salt, pepper and lots of garlic on them. And they were great, really delicous!

            Those look wonderful! In Louisiana we would kick them up a notch more with some red pepper!

                Interesting. We've been watching re-runs of a guy called Emeril on TV here. Is pepper all that is involved in his 'essence' when he "kicks it up a notch"

                    We cooked these last night in our over before pizza. A huge hit with our guests. The olive oil was sizzling when I took it out of the oven.
                    Very easy to make.

                      Great!

                      My guests always love them too. And get a bit upset when I'm not in the mood to cook them!

                          I read this post and thought, mmmmm, I've gotta make these. I didn't have any mushrooms but had the rest of the ingredients so I had to think of something else to stuff. I used yellow squash and zucchini and they were wonderful. We had leftovers so I served them to company the next day for lunch. They were a hit. This shopping day I'll buy mushrooms and more crabmeat. Karen

                            We did not have any leftovers last night - we made a double batch and there were only 7 of us, but we managed to eat them all and almost 7 pizzas!

                            We all really enjoyed them and their was just not enough garlic oil left in the bottom of the pan - we cooked up a bare pizza dough just so we could sop it up. We ran out of oil before we ran out of bread!

                            Thanks

                              I kept reading such good reviews about these things and decided I had to try them out tonight - wow, are they good! Five of us polished them off in short order and barely had room for the main course as they're very filling too. All in all, it was unanimous - ten thumbs up! Gosh Dave, how does it feel to be famous world-wide for your recipe??
