BTW, I don't bother with the margarine/butter anymore. I just sprinkle the crushed chips on top. It works just fine and cuts down on the fat.

Aaaargh! Why can't I ever pull up this thread with a keyword search! I have to keep looking through the thread list to pull it up! Very inconvenient when I need one of these recipes in a hurry!

Tequila and Lime Frosting

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tbsp milk
3 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp tequila
2+ cups confectioners’ sugar

coarse sugar for “rims”

Cream together shortening, milk, lime juice, tequila, and 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar. Add in more sugar as needed to make frosting stiff, but spreadable.

Spread on cupcakes and roll the edges in a small amount of coarse, colored sugar (poured into a small bowl, so it’s easy to direct it).

Here is a recipe for homemade applesauce that's so easy a caveman can do it (I hope there aren't any cavemen on here to be offended by that! :D):

Get out a Crock-Pot (pick the size according to how much you want to make
Grab several apples (my mom uses MacIntosh) and peel them. Slice them up thin into the Crock-Pot
Add 1 c. of water, natural cider, or natural apple juice to the pot (for larger quantities, add another cup).
Add I c. of sugar or Splenda.
Add apple pie spice to taste.
Cook on low until you stir it and have chunky applesauce.

This is really awesome!

Preheat oven to 350F.

1 pkg. graham crackers broken in quarters (I just use Keebler clubs. It works and I don't have to break them)
1 stick of butter and 1 stick of margarine (DON'T try to substitute! You'll burn it!)
1/2 c. sugar
semi-sweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips
Festive sprinkles (optional)

Place crackers on a cookie sheet, close together but not touching. On the stove over medium heat, melt the butter and margarine. Add sugar when about half the butter/margarine is melted. Bring to a boil for two minutes. Carefully pour the butter mixture over the crackers. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden....(continued next post)

TOFFEE, cont'd.

As soon as you take the toffee out of the oven, shake at least a cup of the chocolate chips over the toffee. Let sit for 10 minutes, then spread the chocolate like you're icing a cake. If you want to add sprinkles, do it now. Chill for a few hours in the freezer. Break into pieces and serve. Just note, that a lot of times, the white chocolate doesn't want to stay attached to the toffee. But what does stay is really good!

Vanilla rolls ( great for Xmas ) - moved from my Journal here

150 grams ( 5 oz ) smooth flour
105 grams ( 3,7 oz) butter or margarine
40 (1.4 oz) grams of vanilla sugar
some grated lemon crust
1 egg yolk
60 grams ( 2 oz ) of ground nuts (the best are walnuts)
powdered sugar

What to do
Mix everything into a smooth dought (except the powdered sugar except the powdered sugar and vanilla sugar). Put in fridge for a while ( a hour or so). Make one large roll on and then cut it into pieces. This pieces form into little rolls (like little half-moons). Put those on baking paper a bake by the temperature 170 Celsius about 20 minutes.
After baking, put them out the oven and let them cool off a bit. Then cover them whole with powdered and vanilla sugars mixed together.
Some people put the ends into the melted chocolate but I don´t do it.

Snowman Soup

Very simple really!

Empty a packet of hot cocoa mix into a mug. Dark chocolate cocoa is great, too!
Unwrap three Hershey's Kisses and put them in the mug (use Special Darks if you use dark chocolate hot cocoa).
Boil some water, then pour it into the mug.
Stir everything up really good with a spoon then take a candy cane and stir it (it tends to break if you just try to stir it with the cane right away).
Top with Marshmallows and enjoy!

If you want to give someone just a token gift, you could get a Christmas Mug, the Christmas Ziplock bags, then put a serving or two for Snowman Soup in the mug. And to make sure it looks Christmasy, make sure you give three Hershey Kisses with each one wrapped in the different color foil (red, green, silver or if you do the Special Darks, red, green, purple).

Cranberry Sauce (the real deal this time!)

Dump a bag of cranberries in a small Crock-Pot
Add a cup of water or 100% Cranberry juice

These burgers will knock your socks off!!! And it's a recipe all my own!


For the meat:

Take a pound of ground beef or turkey and add 1 t. of minced garlic (or one clove if you mince it yourself), 1 t. dill weed, and a packet of Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing Mix. Mix it all up with your hands. Roll the meat into four balls then press to make patties.

For the mesquite marinade, get a packet of Mesquite Grill Mates marinade mix. The directions say to mix the powder with 1/4 c. of water and 1/4 c. of oil. I use olive oil and if you want to make this even better, cut the amount of oil in half and replace the other half with liquid smoke. Marinate the burgers for at least 15 minutes, but the longer you marinate them the better they taste. Enjoy!
8 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 2/27/10 - 6:48:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, and top the burgers with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese.
8 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 2/27/10 - 6:52:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sorry the marinate brand is from McCormick. They have a whole bunch of marinade mixes called Grill Mates. My favorite is the mesquite and cutting the oil in half and replacing it with the liquid smoke is really amazing. Before I thought of adding all that stuff to the meat I always used to marinate my burgers in that. My ex always used to have a need for condiments on his burgers, but when I did that, he didn't need it. Too bad he's my ex. He'll never get to try the new and improved burgers now!

Chicken and Rice and Mushrooms Marsala

Preheat oven to 350.

Batter Mix:

1/4 cup Bisquick, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup dry mashed potato mix, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 tablespoon marjoram, 1 tablespoon rosemary, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, a dash of black pepper.


Cut 3 chicken boneless breasts in half lengthwise. Dip in a beaten egg and milk mixture, and then dip into batter mix. Place in olive oil lined glass pan. Bake 20 minutes, then turn and bake 10-20 more minutes until no longer pinkish.


Follow regular directions for rice.

Mushroom and Marsala sauce. Melt a bit of butter in some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan, then sautee mushrooms with a lot of garlic and some marjoram, adding in the occasional splash of marsala wine.
8 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 3/5/10 - 9:29:19 PM EST (GMT-5)

When the rice and chicken are done (or even if the chicken is still a little pinkish), add to mushroom & marsala sauce and cook through, possibly adding cooked peas or mixed vegetables. You may need to add some more marsala wine for flavor.

Mmmmm, Dan. That sounds good. I have to watch my carb intake, though.
