Come one, come all YT Members! This is our first cookbook! Submit your recipes (and more real ones than silly ones like calling 1-800-DOMINOS for a pizza recipe, please!). Here is my first one:

CHILI DIP (a real party pleaser!)

Preheat your oven to 350.

Ingredients:

2 8-oz pkgs. of creme cheese
1 cup of French onion dip
2 cans of Hormel no-bean chili (unless of course, you WANT the beans)
1 small can diced green chili peppers (no need to drain them)
3-4 cups shredded Mexican blend or just sharp cheddar cheese

Whip the creme cheese and onion dip together with an electric mixer and spread this into the bottom of a glass 9 X 13 pan. Mix the chili and the peppers together and pour this on top of the creme cheese mixture. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges bubble. Serve warm with tortilla chips. I guarantee it won't last long!

I make this every Christmas Eve and then bake it on Christmas morning while my children open their gifts!

Breakfast Casserole

In a greased 9x13 pan layer in order:
8-10 slices firm bread, cubed.
1 lb. cooked sausage, crumbled (optional)---I use vegetarian Morningstar soy "sausage" replacement.

Mix and pour over:
6 beaten eggs
2 1/2 c. milk
1 t. dry mustard

Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 6-8 hours)

Mix together:
1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 c. milk.
Mix and pour over casserole. Top with 2 c. grated cheddar cheese.

Bake covered for 300 for 1 hours 15 minutes, remove foil for the last 15-20 minutes.

Mmmm, mantra! That sounds good!

Here's another one from me:

CHICKEN AND RICE

Preheat your oven to 325F.

1 can each of creme of chicken, creme of mushroom, and creme of celery condensed soup (I use the 98% fat free stuff)
1 soup can full of low fat milk
1 and 1/4 cups UNCOOKED rice
3-4 large chicken pieces of your choice (preferably bonless chicken breasts, although my mom has used the ones with bones and I used six thighs instead)
1 packet of French onion soup mix

Grease a large casserole dish. Mix the soups, milk, and rice in a bowl. Pour into the casserole dish. Lay chicken pieces on top. Sprinkle the onion soup mix over top of everything. COVER THE DISH WITH FOIL!!!! You don't want to forget that (I did once). Bake at 325F for 90 minutes then turn the temp up to 350F and bake for another 30 minutes! Easy, huh?

Here's my recipe for spaghetti sauce:

Brown one pound of ground beef in a large pot.

Chop one large onion, two carrots, and three sticks of celery. Add this to the ground beef.

Add one large can of crushed tomatos and one can of tomato paste.

Add two cups of vegetable broth.

Throw in a pinch each of basil, oregano, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and two bay leaves.

Let simmer over medium low heat for at least one hour.

Add fresh parsley before serving.

If you like it spicy, chop up any sort of hot pepper and throw it in the pot while cooking.

For vegetarian omit the ground beef and add tofu or whatever you like.

This also makes really good chili if you add beans and hot peppers.

Corn and Black bean Salsa

2 tomatos's (About big enough to hold in your hand)
1 1/2 cups of chopped purple Onion
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of chopped cilantro
1/4 cup of red pepper
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons of powdered oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon of powdered corriander
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon black pepper( I like ground pepper myself)
juice of 2 or 3 large limes
1 can of diced tomato's with sauce
1 can of Sweet Corn Kernels
1 Can of Black Beans

Chop tomato's and Cilantro and add all the ingredients together..Add or decrease level of red pepper to get the degree of heat you want. You can also add about a quarter of a chopped jalapeno id you want true long lasting heat.

One of the best salsa recipes I've ever had.

Monkey Bread

1 package of Rhodes Dough balls
1 1/2 cups of butter
1/2 cup refined sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup of chopped pecans
2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Melt Butter and add sugar to melted butter. Let butter and sugar mixture come to a boil then remove from heat. Add pecans.

Take frozen dough balls and place in a large greased cooking pot. (I like a roast pan)

Pour Hot Butter/sugar/pecan/cinnamon mix over frozen dough and palce in the over overnight. (I like to make this before I go to bed then let it rise overnight. you can make it in the moring and let it have about 8 hours to rise...works the same)

In the morning I come down and turn the over to 325 and let it bake for about 30 minutes or until the tops of the rolls are golden brown.

Then I take the pot out and dump it upside down on a cookie sheet(a large one) and put it back in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes.

When you are done, you will get a pull apart cinnamon roll tasting mixture

This is a great recipe because it's super-quick, tastes AMAZING and is a lot of fun to do in a group at a party, or alone FOR a party.

If you don't have cocoa, you can substitute a teaspoon or so of maple flavouring and it's DIVINE.

11 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 11:07:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
(I should clarify that by "first 4 ingredients" she means the sugar, cocoa, margarine and water. My mother wrote the card like 10 years ago, and just scanned and emailed it to me ten minutes ago, I'm so proud of her. )

It is also low-fat, if you happen to do Weight Watchers it is only 2 pts per serving.

Wow! This thread wasn't off to a very good start, but now I'm getting a lot of good stuff here!

You know, I thought that monkey bread would be some kind of banana bread!

i must try that!

I have to warn you, that chicken finger dip really doesn't make much. Oh, and the original recipe calls for some finely chopped up celery. But I don't like celery, so I don't use it.

Sammy's Secret Fudge..

3 cups choc bits, the best quality choc you can find.
1 tin condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon butter.

Place all ingredients in a dry microwave safe bowl, and microwave for one minute, stir, then do another minute, and so on until the fuge is smooth and creamy with no lumps.

Pour into a tray and stick in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Cut into squares, eat..

You can add anything you like to the fudge just before you pour it in the tray...nuts, M&M's, marshmallows..I've done like a rocky road with marshmallow, coconut and glace cherries..

You can use milk, white or dark chocolate.

Cut into squares and top each square with an almond..it looks great and it makes a wonderful gift, if you fill little baskets or tins with it..and it's cheap to make. You can use the cheap brands of choc and still get good results.

CAUTION: make sure your bowl and stirrer are dry..if they're wet at all, the choc will go lumpy and not melt smoothly.

Ooh, yummy! If I ever want to make fudge, now I have an easy recipe! Can you add extracts? Like orange and make orange chocolate fudge?

My Yummy Garlic Bread (it's nothing spceial but i thought i would add it anyway)

3 cloves of garlic
Uncooked Ciabatta ( i like to use homemade bread too)
3 tablespoons of low fat butter.

Cook the Ciabatta to the instructions on the packet. Chop up the garlic into tiny pieces add to butter. Add a teaspoon of water to the butter and garlic. Take the ciabatta out of oven, and cut it into 8 pieces, spread the garlic butter on to the pices and pop under the grill until the edges brown.

I like it with lasagne and salad.

I'm re-posting the Jell-O Shot recipe. I messed up one of the details before.

JELL-O SHOTS!

Very simple. You pretty much make your Jell-O according to the directions. Only difference is, depending on how strong you want them, you replace water with vodka, rum, gin, or whatever. One of the best ways I've made them is with Smirnoff Vanilla vodka. Gives them a fruit 'n' creme flavor.

Strong: Replace ALL the water with liquor
Moderate: Half water, half liquor
Weak: 1 and 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. liquor.

Pour the liquid into 1-oz. portion cups and put them in the freezer to set. I always make the weak ones. That way I can have more and LOOK like a wild party animal but wake up not FEELING like one does if they'd had just as many strong ones!
