A take-off on a recipe from CDKitchen - Made this & it was great!
Does NOT have that "Oh, you used dry milk" taste, at all! Note: there is no way, when listing the ingredients, to let you know to use EITHER the butter OR the sour cream, so they are both listed, but choose one or the other!
This is a great mix for filling jars for gift-giving at Christmas, or any time! You may also fill little celophane bags that you find in craft stores,and tie them with pretty, festive ribbons. Any way you go, it's sure to please someone! This is a delicious mix, so you may as well make some for yourself too!
Note: This makes about 4 cups. I made this last Christmas, and used Splenda in some of them and it's great.
Everything you need to make a meal, just add cooked chicken pieces or cubes and water. You don't have to add meat. The longer the broth cooks, the more intense flavor. I have given this as gifts to neighbors for years. A perfect gift for new moms,ill friends, shower gift and holiday giving.
I love homemade eats, cottage cheese, and saving money while eating well. This recipe satisfies all those wants. Also, making my own cottage cheese results in whey, which I can save to add to other things. Whey is highly nutritious and helps regulate blood sugar levels. I only add salt and milk or cream if I'm not using the cottage cheese in cooking or baking.
Here's what Country Living says,"Our hot-chocolate mix, made with the finest cocoa and chocolate, is a cut above most store-bought varieties. Fill jars with the mix, cover the lids with a festive swath of fabric, and include peppermint "stirring" sticks for added flavor and color. Try adding to a basket with mugs, spoons, marshmallows, whipped cream and maybe a good movie!
I used Coffee Mate vanilla-flavor powdered creamer and Nestle Nesquick, I am not certain if they sell this in the States, if not use similar products, also plain powdered cream can be used in place of vanilla, but the vanilla is better lol! Here's what to do to give as a gift; divide the mixture between two 1-quart glass jars, seal and decorate as desired, attach a tag with 1 cinnamon stick (if desired for stirring) with the following instruction...For hot cocoa, dissolve 1/3-cup mix in 1 cup (or more) boiling water, stir with cinnamon stick and enjoy!
I made this for gifts this past Christmas. I used half pint jars and a sticker on top to tell what to add. And either a red or green ribbon around the mouth of lid for decoration. Made a cute gift and it is easy to make.
Makes the equivalent of 3 (1.25 ounce) packages of soup mix. I picked this recipe up from our County Extension office. This is a low sodium recipe which contains 5.7mg of sodium compared to 3560.0mg of sodium from a store bought 1.25 ounce packet.
This makes the equivalent of 7 cans of soup. I picked this recipe up from our County Extension office. The lady said if you are using this in a casserole you can skip cooking it and just mix it into your recipe. This is a low sodium recipe which contains 111.0mg of sodium compared to 2110.6mg in a can of cream of mushroom soup.
The recipe was posted on an email homemaker group I belong to. I make alot of pudding pies and knew this would come in handy. Its much less expensive to make your own than to buy the ones at the store. The chocolate ones make the best crusts. The cinnamon ones are good also-just omit the cinnamon.
Quite a while back, I was visiting my friend Katy, and started flipping through pages of her Kenmore microwave book. At that time I was "playing" with all kinds of Chinese recipes, so I copied this recipe for hoisin sauce. I've had a request to post it here on Zaar.
I don't always want the saltiness of celery salt and I battle to find celery seeds, so I thought this recipe was a useful keeper! Edited 24 July 2008 : I didn't want to make this recipe public until I had tried it myself - This makes a really fragrant, flavoursome celery spice! A great, and simple, way to use up all your celery leaves.
