This is a great way to have baked potatoes ready when you come home. I own two crock pots. In one I have my meat and the other I have a vegetable, some type of side or dessert. You can create a whole meal in a crock pot.
These are so addictive! I gave this recipe to some folks who now make 2 batches a week!
This was given to me by Joyce, a co-worker.
Note : Please use the large pretzels broken into pieces, these absorb the oil and flavor better then nuggets, or small twists. added: 10/29/08
Refrigerated cookie dough and mini peanut butter cups make preparing these a breeze...BUT they taste like a lot of effort goes into them. This recipe was given to me, so I do not know who Stormy is, but I figured I should give him/her credit! According to "Stormy", you can also do these with Rolos (haven't tried that yet!)
I have been making this microwave fudge ever since I've owned a microwave -- since the early 1980s. I particularly like it when made with flavoured chocolate chips. Nuts can be added if you wish; I recommend toasted walnuts, chopped fairly small.
I use a lot of bell peppers when I cook, and I like to use all different colors, but those yellow and orange babies get mighty pricey where I live, so when they go on sale I buy up a few of every color and they're right at my fingertips whenever I need them! (These are for use in cooking, not for fresh eating).
Another favorite from my Mom. A fast and easy dessert that is wonderful served warm! A special after-school snack idea for the kids when they have friends over or a dessert option for a casual evening.
Start with the simplest perfect mash of avocado, garlic and salt. Then add green chili, white onion and red tomato (the colors of the Mexican flag) to create a perfect guacamole that’s perfect with a bowl of chips at a Cinco de Mayo party. Adding cilantro and lime to the basic guacamole gives it the flavors to stand alone, as a topping for crispy tacos or tostadas, or even as a dip.
