My Granddad's cookies:

Very simple.

Ingredients:
Smooth peanut butter
Ritz crackers (MUST be Ritz)
Semi-sweet chocolate (the stuff in bricks works)

1. Make as many little sandwiches of peanut butter between two Ritz crackers as you can.
2. Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
3. Spread wax paper out over all available surfaces.
4. Using kitchen tongs, dip each cracker/PB sandwich into the melted chocolate until fully coated.
5. Place coated sandwich on wax paper to cool and harden.
6. Repeat

If desired, you can decorate the cookies with sprinkles or little candies (like M&Ms) before the chocolate hardens.

Warning: these cookies are seriously addictive.

a simple one:


SPINACH SQUARES.

    * 2 tablespoons butter
    * 3 eggs
    * 1 cup flour
    * 1 cup milk
    * 1 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1 pound shredded cheddar cheese (extra sharp)
    * 2 10oz packages frozen chopped spinach
    * at least 1 tablespoon of minced onion, but i've added up to a half-cup of it. 


   1. Preheat oven to 350.
   2. Place butter or margarine in a 9x13 inch baking dish and melt butter in oven. Remove when melted, approximately 3 minutes.
   3. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs well. Mix in flour, milk and baking powder. When the dough is well combined, mix in cheese, spinach, and onion. Spoon mixture into the baking dish with melted butter.
   4. Bake for 35 minutes. Let cool 45 minutes then cut into squares.

^^ I will be making those this weekend.

siski - have you ever tried saltine toffee or oreo bonbons?  it's the same idea of taking a pre-packaged cookie/cracker item and turning it into something almost recognizable.  when i get home, i'll post the recipes.

Mmm, no I haven't. I'll keep my eye out for when you post the recipe.

I think I'm going to have to print out this entire thread. Those spinach squares sound yummy. I think I'll bring my recipe book to work next week to share more recipes. I have a to-die-for lentil soup recipe. I'm going to make cupcakes over spring break, I think.

yessssssssssssssssssss.

i just got a crockpot last week, and i've been cooking in it nonstop.  i need a killer chili recipe.  although this weekend i'm making 15 bean soup.

also, i made dot's strawberry cupcakes last night.  they are delicious, although they did NOT put my cupcake recipe to shame, as i was worried they would.

I L-O-V-E my crockpot(s)!  Thought it would be a good recipe for future law students.  I usually fix it up the night before, leave it in the fridge over night and set it to low on my way out the door.  Dinner's ready as soon as I get home!  ;D

I don't really cook with measurements so well, try it out, my favorite, super easy soup:

Roasted Red Pepper Jalapeno Soup

1 can broth (veggie or chicken)
1 small can sweet corn
1-2 big handfuls cilantro
2 large roasted red peppers (either roast them yourself or buy them at a nice grocery store)
1-2 jalapeno peppers
approx 1-2 teaspoons garlic
salt and pepper to taste

blend all ingredients in a blender
heat on the stove and let simmer for 10-15 minutes
serve

definitely making this one.

RJ - do you have more than one crockpot??

Yes...three actually.  Two full-size ones and a smaller one for dips.  Does that seem excessive?  I get them all on sale, though, if that mitigates things at all.

It's great for parties, example: shredded chicken in one large crockpot, sweet and sour meatballs in the other and chile con queso in the small one.  Plus, the two large ones are different shapes - one round, the other oval...I like to have options and love to cook!   ;D

Hopefully I won't wind up in some <500 sqft apartment that would force me to leave behind all but one crockpot.

Sick here too.  Have no voice, but can type.  Here's a favorite soup recipe.  I hope this is the right one (I have several variants on this recipe as it is my husband's fav, and I keep trying to improve it).

Beer-Cheese Soup

Ingredients
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
1 clove garlic(pressed)
1 tablespoon grated onions
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 dash white pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
3-5  diced baked potatoes(I prefer red with skins on)
1 cup beer (lighter beer will give it less beer flavor)
1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese
crisp bacon pieces (optional)
2 cups popped popcorn

Directions
1.  Spoon flour into measuring cup& level off.
2.  Melt butter in large saucepan, and add flour.
3.  Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly until smooth and bubbly.
4.  Add garlic, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, mustard and pepper; blend well.
5.  Gradually stir in chicken broth, half-and-half and beer; cook until thickened, stirring constantly.
6.  Add cheese; stir until melted.
7.  Add potatoes, bacon (if desired), and heat gently, stirring often, but do not allow to boil.  Cook until potatoes are cooked through.
8.  Top with popcorn.
