Cupcake Pop aka cake-on-a-stick

Thanks to Bakerella for the idea! I used Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" chocolate cake for the cake, flavored the white (blue) chocolate with raspberry, topped with an m&m then sprinkled with colored sugar crystals.

Looking for rib recipes [
7/25/07 ♥ 11:25 AM ]

I am in need of some really good rib recipes. I've been putting them in my crockpot and dumping BBQ sauce on them, but they've not turned out very well. I was hoping someone here had some recipes they could share.


Beer Bread Recipe [
6/29/07 ♥ 08:11 PM ]

I just found out that my neighbor's birthday is tomorrow, so I decided to finally make the beer bread I've been promising him. I thought I'd share it with LJ.

I don't like the taste of beer though I do like cooking with it. This bread has been a hit with everyone I've ever given it to, even those who swear they hate beer. This is good with butter or a cheese spread.

Beer Bread

3 cups self-rising flour
3 Tbsp. white sugar
12 oz. beer
1/4 cup melted butter.

Combine beer, flour, sugar. Mix well. Put into greased and floured baking pan.
Pour melted butter over the top. Stick into 375 degree F oven for 45-60 minutes.

Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies [
3/31/07 ♥ 12:30 PM ]

Prep time: 1 hour
Ready in: 90 minutes
Makes: 24 cookies

1 19.5 oz. box fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 container ready-to-spread chocolate frosting (about 3/4 cup)

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl, beat brownie mix, melted butter, cream cheese, and egg 50 strokes with a spoon until well blended. (dough will be sticky)

Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, to make 24 cookies. Smooth edge of each to form round cookie.

In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon until mixture forms a ball. With hands, roll rounded teaspoonfuls into 24 balls. Lightly press 1 ball into center of each ball of dough.

Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are set. Cool cookies on cookie sheets at least 30 minutes.

Remove cooled cookies from cookie sheets. Spread thin layer of frosting over peanut butter portion of each cooled cookie.

High Altitude (3,500-6,500 ft.): Before baking, flatten cookies slightly. Bake 11 to 15 minutes.

Chicken and Dumplings Recipe [
1/18/07 ♥ 08:51 AM ]

This is the easiest chicken and dumplings recipe to make, plus it's quick. I keep the ingredients for it stocked at all times for nights when I want to make something that doesn't take long or I just need a good warm-me-up food.
I got the original recipe from the side of the frozen biscuit package, and then I modified it into something I like better. The recipe here is my version.

Chicken, Spinach and Chick Pea curry [

I made this one up myself, an incorporation of two recipes. I thought it was very tasty and am definitly making this one again!

It's a mix and amalgamation of a hummus and a curry recipe I found on-line :)

Sunchine Chicken Recipe [
2/14/06 ♥ 05:16 PM ]

As stolen from the back of a dried Apricot packet, which I found when trying to be good and eating fruit. Albeit dried....

Personally I don't think this recipe really needs the apricots, but as I found it on there, I did add them. Next time I won't though. Also I adjusted the cooking method as I couldn't be bothered with the whole wrapping up thing! I've put both methods below.

Hello -just joined! [
1/20/06 ♥ 04:41 PM ]

Hi all! My name is Sooz and I am new here. (I agree with the last poster too - the layout doesn't work in Firefox unfortunately)

I was looking for tasty recipes and I found my way here. Having a look through I have already nabbed a good few recipes to try out, so feel I should post my one of favourites back.

hey, nice community! [

[ mood | chipper ]

Hey, it's nice to see a friendly cooking comm, although the layout doesn't seem to work on Firefox.

I thought I'd share a couple of recipes I developed on my new attempt to lose weight. I'm trying to slim down, but I don't want to lose good skin and hair tone, or the theraputic time I get to spend cooking. I've always loved fresh food, so at least this way, I get plenty of chance to explore fruits and healthy alternative foods. I'll cut these as they're pretty long:

carrot and orange juiceCollapse )

I'm trying to avoid wheat at least at the start of my diet, so these are great:

I created this pizza recipe one day because I was in the mood for pizza, but I wanted something fresh, personalized, & healthy too.  It's honestly the best pizza I've ever tried.  And everyone who tastes it says "This is really good pizza." :)

Chocolate Covered Pretzels [
12/22/05 ♥ 09:58 AM ]


I love chocolate-covered pretzels. Yogurt ones too. But I think they're pricey at the grocery usually.

A friend makes them and I beg her for a bunch every time she does. She finally just said, "Why not make them yourself? They're quick, easy, and cheap."

She was right, and the kids and I made a batch to give away for Christmas goodies. I thought I'd share the 'recipe' here in case anyone is looking for an easy goodie to make and pass out.

All you need is

  • a big bag of pretzels. (I got the traditional design and not sticks, but a friend of mine said she's going to buy the rods and use those. I want to try that next.)

  • almond bark (can be found in the baking goods aisle near the chocolate chips in my store. I usually get white, but I'm going to buy chocolate next.)

  • wax paper


Break off a few squares of the almond bark and put in a microwave-safe bowl. The instructions on my bag said to put on high for one minute, stir, and then 30 seconds each time after that until melted. It didn't take long for mine to melt, and you don't want to get it too hot or it will scorch.

I then dipped the pretzels halfway into the chocolate and laid them on wax paper to dry. Some I sprinkled colored sugar on, some I just drizzled the chocolate over using a knife. If you want to dip them completely, have two forks or some tongs on hand.

If you need to rehead the chocolate, do so at 30 second intervals and then stir.

These are so easy to make and highly addictive when eating! The cost wasn't much at all. Almond bark was less than $1.50 and whatever the cost of the big bag of pretzels. I used up most of my almond bark and still have half a bag of pretzels.

Very cheap, very easy to make, and people love it.
