I like dandelions; not in the middle of my yard, but my day is ALWAYS brighter when either of my kids give me a handful of bright yellow flowers. And learning that I can EAT them make them all the cooler! I think this syrup has a deeper flavor than the sugary stuff you get at the store (although it's not health food!) Found it in a magazine or newspaper, years ago.
I love nuts, and I love chocolate, and this fancy (but easy) desserts satisfys both! For company, drizzle melted chocolate on top, or use dollops of whipped cream and chocolate-dipped whole walnuts. From "Crosby's Molasses Favorites".
Just one more variation of the quintessential brownie! This one's from Kraft. My kids loved helping me make these - especially the cookie crushing part! Feel free to use 1/2 cup carob or chocolate chips instead of squares, or try 1/4 cup cocoa, 1/4 cup sugar and 3 tbsps butter (if your house is like mine, and all chocolate chips get eaten before you can bake!)
I found this in an old church-fundraising cookbook. It was so easy, I tried it with chicken in place of the beef. Great for social dinners - get it started before company comes. You can keep it warm for quite awhile if you get to talking!
