OK, my original cookbook thread doesn't bump up, so what I'm going to start doing is going to that thread and copy and past all the recipes that are currently there. I will make sure that I put who originally posted the recipes so that it doesn't look like I'm hogging all the credit!

This one was mine:

CHILI DIP (a real party pleaser!)

Preheat your oven to 350.


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!

From mantramum (I've made this. I love it!):

Breakfast Casserole

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.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/31/08 - 2:55:31 PM EST (GMT-5)


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?

From Razzed:

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.

From Explodo:

Monkey Bread
1 package of Rhodes Dough balls

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)
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/31/08 - 3:02:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Monkey bread cont'd:

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 mine:

This recipe doesn't make a lot, so you may need to double it. The original recipe also takes some finely chopped celery, but I don't use celery. I don't like it.

Here's another party pleaser:

2 8-oz pkgs. lite creme cheese
2 small or 1 large can chicken
1/2 c. bleu cheese or ranch dressing (preferrably bleu cheese)
1/4 c. Frank's red hot sauce

Just whip everything together and put it on Wheat Thins or Triscuits! Yum-O!

*The last time I made this I also added some crumbled bleu cheese and heated it with the Frank's sauce.

From sammy:

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.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/31/08 - 3:17:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Fudge cont'd:

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.

Sammy also says you can add flavored extracts like orange or mint.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/31/08 - 3:17:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
From me:


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!

I'll be back and post some more recipes later.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/31/08 - 7:17:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
From IAmSophistry:

Slice up nice and fine a couple of cloves of garlic, a red chilli pepper and a large onion. (red onions work nicely here) Lash in the saucepan with some oil for 5 minutes or so.

Throw in a pepper or two (sliced) and some mushrooms, wait another nicely browned.

Add some mince (lean beef or lamb is good), cook until brown.

Add a couple of tins of tomatoes, a tin or so of Red Kidney beans, some passata, cumin, chilli powder and a dash of wine.

Stir, simmer for an hour.

et voila!

From me:


60 Ritz crackers
1 c. egg whites
¾ c. chopped walnuts
1½ c. granulated sugar
1 pt. whipping crème (NOT Cool Whip!)
2 t. powdered sugar
½ c. powdered sugar
1 c. coconut

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Break crackers into quarters (easier said than done, but do the best you can) into a large mixing bowl. Stir walnuts into the crackers. Beat the egg whites until thick, but don’t overdo it. Add the granulated sugar and beat until foamy. Fold egg white mixture into cracker mixture. Pour into a greased 9”X13” baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes then let cool. Pour whipping crème into a bowl and add the 2 t. of powdered sugar to start. As crème is whipping, add the other ½ c. of powdered sugar or until sweetened to taste. Spread whipped crème evenly over the cake and sprinkle with coconut.

From sylvalis:

One of my favourites summer snacks:
Keep 125g of salted butter out of the fridge for 2 or 3 hours before starting.

Put three or four dried figs in the mixer/blender.
Add figs to the butter. Spread the butter+figs mixture on bread, put a bit of Italian ham on top and enjoy - ideally with a glass of Lambrusco wine.

Easy&quick to prepare and to eat... and really tasty

From Explodo (I want to try this some day!):

The Ziplocik Omelette

Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. (For more, use another pot of boiling water.)

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
