This is a nice, creamy, comforting soup- and it's very easy to throw it all together in the crock pot. Add a sandwich or some dinner rolls, and you'll have a great dinner for cold nights! I made a few changes to a recipe taken from the "Fix It and Forget It Cookbook" to come up with this.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE TITLE! Your kids, hubby, wifey, and everyone will eat it. I have made triple batches and could not keep it in the house. It's very smooth, and easily eaten by anyone with or without teeth. :) Fights have started over the leftovers.
We have been making our own syrup forever and it is soooo easy. We recently had guests for the weekend and had a pancake breakfast. They had never had homemade syrup before so I decided to post it. There are a couple other syrup recipes on here, but none with the same ingredients.
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
My SIL is a newlywed, and she's turning into quite a good cook -- we have even started sharing recipes. This is HER stir fry sauce, and I love its basic goodness. You can add ingredients (I'll add a few spoonfuls of black bean sauce sometimes, for example) or change them around (I often use brown sugar instead of white, and sometimes I use rice wine vinegar instead of the white). I keep losing the piece of paper I have this scribbled on, so it's time to bring it to Zaar!
Are you looking for a quick but delicious seafood soup? Can't wait to make that stock and take all that extra time? Well.. this is the soup for you. It's thick and creamy and comforting. I know many of you out there frown upon the use of condensed soups. But try this.. it tastes like a restaurant quality soup without all the fuss. Use whatever seafood you like. Just use at least 1 1/2 pounds of it. You can even use chopped cooked chicken if you don't like seafood. Want a curry flavor? Just add some curry powder while cooking the onions and celery. You can turn this into a creamy curried vegetable soup by omitting the seafood and using more onions and celery with the addition of carrots and whatever other vegetables are your favorites. Leave out the curry powder for a satisfying creamy vegetable soup. Just try it.. you'll like it.
This is a fantastic clone for the store-bought marshmallow fluff and one I have used for years, it's easy to make and so much cheaper than the store-bought, I always use this instead of the real thing and it freezes well also, see note on bottom --- use this in any recipe calling for marshmallow fluff, I have also made this using dark corn syrup it is just a little darker in colour but it works just as well :)
I found this "clone" recipe at recipegoldmine.com. It is very similar to the cinnamon butter served at Texas Roadhouse restaurants in Dallas. They bring it to you to serve on their in house dinner rolls. (Please see recipe I posted for these rolls (Texas Roadhouse Buttery Dinner Rolls), just recently. I love how easy this is to mix up and serve, probably with ingredients you already have on hand. Cook time is prep. time.
