Sounds very yummy FS! I will have to try it since the crockpot is so easy and convenient for me. I have chili cooking in the crockpot as we speak!

Bumping this up with a recipe from eejm:

[quote="eejm"]Monster cookies! This is similar to the recipe my grandma used to make.

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup butter, softened
1½ cups creamy peanut butter
4½ cups quick cooking oats
2 tsp baking soda
3 large eggs
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&M’s plain chocolate candies

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper.


2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except chips and M&M’s) and mix with an electric mixer until well combined. Stir in chips and M&M’s.

3. Drop cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Gently press down on each cookie to flatten a bit.

4. Bake 10- 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets until cookies are set. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Yield: 3 dozen


Of course they're horrible for you in every way, but at least they're whole grain? (And freaking DELICIOUS!)

To answer Laura's question - nope, no flour. There's not much butter either, really. I'm not sure why not, but all of the oats and peanut butter seem to hold everything together. They can go from chewy to crisp really quickly while baking. I prefer chewy cookies, so it's good to keep a close eye on them.

I rarely eat them but you guys are making me hungry for peanut butter cookies. Ideally, warm and gooey, with chocolate chips in them and a big glass of ice cold milk. :drool:

Mmmm.... I always love croquettes! But I suspect it's the garlic mayo I like best! :lol:

As for the kiwifruit - maybe try gold kiwifruit if they have them there (they'll say 'gold' on the label - check out this converstion) as they are quite a bit sweeter than the green ones. *Yum!*

I just made this last night and for a non-cook, it came out incredibly well!:
Blackened Salmon and Rice
Ingredients:
2 cups instant rice (such as Minute Rice)
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided (2 1/2 Tbsp, 1 Tbsp)
juice of 1 lemon
4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skinned
1 11-ounce can corn kernels, drained
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Directions
Heat oven to 400° F. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, thyme, garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon of the salt.
In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt 2 ½ tablespoons of the butter. Add the lemon juice.
Working with 1 salmon fillet at a time, dip the top and bottom halves first in the lemon butter, then in the spices.
Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon until blackened, 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the oven for 8 minutes.
Stir the corn, parsley, and remaining salt and butter into the rice. Transfer the salmon and rice to individual plates and serve with the lemon wedges.

I love blackened fish or chicken, and this was outstanding. I may try it with chicken next!

Hey, anyone have good Irish recipes they can recommend. I want to do something for St.Patrick's but am not sure where to start. Corned beef?

Absolutely, go with a Boiled Dinner - Google a recipe, it' easy. It's got Corned Beef, Cabbage, Carrots, and Potatoes, and serve it up with homemade Hot Mustard, and you'll be talking with an Irish Brogue! I just had it tonight at my brother's - yum! :tonqe:

Bakerella is the queen of those. She put them up on her blog, and people have been going nuts over them for several years now. I guess they are a big thing in parts of the South.

I've never made an attempt at the cake pops but I have made cookie pops and they're delish.

The cookie pops are a basic peanut butter choc cookie dough, then you wrap your cookie dough around your fav fun size choc bar, then the whole thing goes on a stick. They are really yum cos they don't bake that long & the choc is all gooey in the middle. Yum! I usually make them at Christmas time.

Those cake pops are really pretty. I've visited her website and there are tons of great ideas & themes. I'd love to try it but I'm not that good at baking.
