Had a yummy talk tonight at chat... and had fun sharing sites and recipe ideas...

So, let's share some of our faves!

Post some of your favorite recipes (any meal or dessert or appetizer!) or links to recipe places you love to browse

I've got one for cookies that you'll love but I have to find it through some PR buddies... I can't remember it and it is supposed to REALLY up your milk production while nursing! I'll post it later!

TACO SOUP: Taco Soup

Well this is not MY recipe but it is what we had for dinner last night. I was worried as it is vegetarian and well my family is not (except for the baby, Scarlett appears to be toying with the idea of being a vegetarian) So to make up for the lack of meat I added a healthy cheese garnish, a daub of sour cream, green onions and diced avacado and this dish was great! I also broke up tortilla chips into mine.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pie

My basic peanut butter pie recipe:
8oz cream cheese
3/4 cup con. sugar
1/2 cup Creamy peanut butter
6 Tablespoons of milk
1 8oz container of cool whip
1 graham crust

In mixing bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy.
Add sugar and PB and mix well.
Add milk gradually
Fold in cool whip and mix well
Spoon into crust
Chill overnight

Okay, that is the basic peanut butter pie recipe. It is great on its own.

Now, to make this into the chocolate covered PB pie, do the following.

You will need one more container of cool whip and a jar of Smuckers hot fudge ice cream topping.

Chill basic pie as stated above. At least 2 hours. Then cover pie in a layer of Smuckers hot fudge... ice cream topping. You will need to heat hot fudge for about 30 seconds. Immediately put pie back into the fridge for an hour or longer. Then top with cool whip and you can drizzle peanut butter or hot fudge on top of cool whip to decorate. I use a ziploc bag.. but pb in bag, snip corner of bag and squeeze. Alternating choc and pb makes it really pretty.
The chocolate is very rich... but so yummy. ENJOY!!

I was going to ask if it was the Monster Cookie recipe, Gwynne. They are SO DELISH!!!

I used to mix up a batch and then only make 6 at a time so I could eat them when they were warm and gooey. Not sure if it was the oatmeal or all the milk I would drink with them, but they definitely increased supply! I've used chocolate chips in place of the m&ms too.

Oh geez, now this has me wanting some!

Pumpkin Bars (Or I make them as muffins too)

1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
2 eggs
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. oil

Sift dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add slightly beaten eggs, pumpkin, and oil. Bake in 9x13 pan @ 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Pumpkin Bar Frosting

Cream 3 oz. cream cheese, 2-1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1 T. milk, 1 t. vanilla, and 1/3 c. margarine. Spread on slightly warm bars.

Banana Bread/Cake

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder
tsp baking soda
tsp salt
cup brown sugar
1 egg
cup milk
cup oil
3 bananas
1 tsp vanilla

Beat sugar and egg until fluffy
Add oil, milk, bananas and vanilla
Add in dry ingredients

350 for 30 minutes

Frosting
2 cups powdered sugar
cup cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla

Frozen Salad

6 oz cream cheese-room temp
cup Miracle Whip
Large can peaches, drained and cut
1 cup cherries, drained and cut
1 lb mini marshmallows
2 large cool whips

Mix well, freeze

Tortilla Rollups

8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
1 cup finely chopped onions
1 cup shredded cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
3 oz diced black olives
8 tortillas

Mix and roll into tortillas
Cut after refrigerating for a few hours

I use and tweak the stuff at Recipe.com a lot.

I love the crockpot365 blog too! One of my fave recipes from there is Crockpot Bacon and Cheese Chicken. Here at out house, we call it Teriyaki Ranch Chicken with Garlic Potatoes, and I usually cook it up on the stove instead of in the crock. This is comfort food to its max!!!

I'll have to pull out my menu list and see if there's anything else worth posting. I already posted the chicken spaghetti recipe, and it's easy peasy.

I'm sure you could! I forgot to add on there, i'm usually lazy and don't want to cook the chicken too, so I buy a already cooked rotisserie chicken, and shred it. I also boil all the stuff with chicken broth instead of water.
