  1. Oh, you just don't know!! Someone brought this to a party 14 years ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since! So I decided if I could find it anywhere it would be Zaar! I made it exactly as instructed.. EXCEPT, I sprinkled alittle garlic powder. I formed it in a ball, wrapped plastic wrap around it.. put it in a small bowl over night, then placed a plate over the bowl, and turned the ball onto the plate.. It was soooo delicious, just like I remembered it to be.. I made it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving, and everyone LOVED IT!! Thank you for sharing!


I am a fifth grade teacher completely dedicated to my job. I spend most of my time correcting papers, working on lesson plans, and bettering myself as an educator. I love to share my joy of cooking and baking with my class through the use of recipe integration with math. I also bring a lot of treats to my kids. :) I am also a newly-wed just finding my feet as a cook for more than one. My husband and I love to fish and hunt, and also to eat what we catch. We always have a freezer full of venison, elk, and various fish. I replace most of the beef in recipes with ground venison. Many of my cooking skills come from my mother, who managed an upscale restaurant for a number of years. She also learned from her grandmothers, who were well know n for being fantastic chefs. My favorite recipe book is her collection in an accordion file that she has gathered since childhood. As you can tell, I LOVE Spongebob. It is the best way to wind down from a long day- you don't have to think! :) I am an avid reader, and must always have a book with me. As a teacher, most books I read are fifth grade level, although I do get to enjoy an adult book every now and then. My husband is an avid Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packer fan, so we watch a lot of sports. I love to be outside gardening, camping, taking walks, or just playing. We LOVE to grill, and my favorite is brats boiled in beer!! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
