      spinash and artichoke dip..

      1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
      11/2 cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts
      6 ounces cream cheese
      1/4 cup sour cream
      1/4 cup mayonnaise
      1/3 cup grated Parmesan
      1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

      Boil spinach and artichokes in 1 cup of water until tender and drain. Discard liquid. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft. Stir in rest of ingredients and serve hot.

      Now, bear in mind that I just googled this. I've never actually made it myself, but I have tasted this recipe when my sister made it and it was really, really good. It's particularly good if you take a crusty baguette, slice it at an angle into about 3/4" slices, toast them under the broiler, brush them with olive oil and rub them with garlic. That is a pretty fantastic dipping material.

      Chewy Chocolate Chip Bars

      1 C Butter or Margarine

      1/2 C Granulated White Sugar

      3/4 C Brown Sugar

      2 Eggs

      1 tsp Vanilla

      2 1/4 C Flour

      1/2 Tbsp Baking Soda and 1/2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar


      1 Tbsp Baking Powder (I don't use commercial baking powder, it has alum in it)

      1/2 tsp Salt

      1 8 oz bag chocolate chips

      Cream both sugars plus butter or margarine together till fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla, beat till smooth.  Combine flour, baking powder (or substitute) and salt.  Add to wet ingredients, mix till fully incorporated.  Add chocolate chips.  Pour in single slab into flat pan and bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F till done.  Allow to cool for five minutes, cut into bar cookies.

      For extra chewiness, use the butter or margarine straight from the fridge.  This always makes chewier cookies, but only attempt this if you have strong arms or a standing mixer (I own a standing mixer)  In addition, thoroughly preheating the oven is a must or the butter will melt instead of expanding and you'll get greasy cookies.  However, when done right, these are as chewy as anything you can get from the store.

    This is my favorite Bread recipe.

    Refined flour (maida)     1 kilogram
    Yeast     20 gram
    Milk     200 milliliters
    Salt     20 grams
    Sugar     20 grams
    Fresh coriander leaves     2 tablespoons
    Fresh mint leaves     2 tablespoons
    Black pepper powder     1 teaspoon


    Sift flour into a bowl and make a well in the center. Cream yeast with sugar and little milk and pour into the well. Sprinkle a little flour and leave in a warm place for fifteen minutes until frothy.

    Mix in salt and remaining milk to the flour to form soft dough.

    Mix in the chopped coriander and mint leaves and black pepper powder. Leave to stand in a warm place until doubled in size. Knock back to bring it to its original size and allow to ferment it again for about half an hour.

    Divide the dough into four equal parts and knead each of them to a cylindrical shape and place in greased loaf tins to ferment for about thirty to forty minutes

    Preheat oven to 180C.

    Place the loaf tins in the preheated oven and bake for thirty minutes.

    Remove and allow it to cool to room temperature before slicing it.

    This is my favorite recipe. I prepare last night and me and my family enjoy this recipe.

    I love sponge cake and store-bought versions just won't do so I have a big collection of sponge cake recipes. This one by James Martin is one of the simplest and most successful for me:

    (From BBC recipe site)

    6 medium eggs
    340g/12oz self-raising flour
    340g/12oz butter
    340g/12oz caster sugar

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
    2. Lightly butter and line the base of an 18cm/7in cake tin with greaseproof paper.
    3. Cream the butter and sugar until smooth and pale in colour and then gradually beat in the eggs.
    4. Sift the flour and fold into the mixture, a little at a time. Pour into the cake tin, level off the mixture with a palette knife and bake for about 90 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

    I like to add some nutmeg, mixed spice and vanilla essence to my version. smile

    my favourite recipe would have to be a creamy mushroom sauce which goes perfectly with sliced lamb chops, roasted potatoes and peas.

    It is similar to steak diane, but is richer in flavour. To make the dish you need:

    200ml of double cream
    8 mushrooms
    red wine
    4 potatoes
    processed peas
    lamb chops
    salt & pepper

    Firstly skin your potatoes then slice them around half an inch and then add them to a boiling pan of water and simmer for 20mins adding herbs and salt.
    Once prepared you need to prepare your meat, season it with some garlic, salt and pepper and cook in butter for around 5 minutes each side.
    Whilst your meat is cooking you need to shallow fry your potatoes in butter and garlic until golden brown.
    Blend together the cream, garlic, mushrooms, butter, herbs and pepper and then bring to a simmer in a pan.
    Bring the peas to a simmer and add any butter and pepper for more flavour if desired.
    Once the sauce is starting to bubble add a splash of red wine and serve on your cooked meat and vegetables.

    This is a very rich meal with a lot of calories so i would not recommend having it regularly, but it is tasty and i have had no complaints as of yet.

    Sounds delish! Here's a simple one but good: brown ground beef, stir in BBQ sauce. Set aside. Pop open some biscuits, flatten out. Spray muffin pan then press biscuits into pan. Pour BBQ hamburger mix into each biscuit "bowl" and bake on 350 for about 20 minutes. Quick and delicious. You can add shredded chedder before you bake to add extra ummmph!
