I'll start with something real easy that my family loves!

No bake chocolate/peanut butter cookies

1 - 1 pound jar smooth peanut butter

1 - 12 ounce package Nestle tollhouse morsels

5 cups corn flakes



______________________________________

Melt chocolate and peanut butter together in a good sized saucepan (non-stick is easiest to clean up). Add corn flakes and stir until well coated

Drop "blobs" about the size to fit in your mouth at one bite onto waxed paper on cookie sheets and refrigerate. These are best if kept refrigerated until just before serving.


Picture as soon as I get ingredients and make some!

Next, a dessert.

Grape Nuts Pudding

____________________________________

1 quart milk

1 cup Grape Nuts Cereal

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


Heat in a saucepan until good and warm. Then add: 3 large eggs, slightly beaten and one cup raisins (we prefer the golden raisins).

Pour into oven proof casserole dish and place in pre-heated oven, 300 degrees, in a pan of hot water (water should come up the side of the casserole dish about half way). Stir the mixture once or twice while cooking. Bake for about an hour.

Kate’s Chicken Recipe


Chicken Thighs Skinned and Boned
Pesto
1 Can Diced Tomatoes
Marinated Artichoke Hearts (With the juice but not the oil)
Lemon Juice (Fresh or Bottled it doesn’t matter)
White Cooking Wine
Garlic
Salt
Pepper
Marie Sharps Hot Sauce (or hot sauce of your choice)
Thickening Agent of your Choice (Flour, Wondra, or Corn Starch)


Cube the chicken and cook in a non-stick pan until done flavoring with a bit of salt and pepper while cooking. When cooked through add garlic and enough pesto to coat and have a little in the bottom of the pan. When that starts to sizzle add the can of tomatoes, cooking wine, artichoke hearts and the juice, lemon juice, and hot sauce. You can do without the hot sauce if people don’t like things spicy. Simmer over a low heat for about 15 minutes and then add thickening agent (flour, wondra, or cornstarch/water mixture) stir in and turn heat all the way down but not off. Simmer for another 5-6 minutes until thickened. Best served over spaghetti but also good over rice.

Noodle Casserole

Fine noodles, cooked.
Equal parts sour cream and cottage cheese mixed with worcestershire, salt, pepper, to taste. Mix all the sauce and noodles together. Place in buttered casserole. Sprinkle with paprika (may be done ahead). At serving time, bake for about 20 minutes at 400˚, or until hot through and crisp on top.

3 1/2 - 4 lb. meaty chicken wings or 4 breasts, split and skinned

Blend in blender:

1 juice glass (about 3/4 c.) soy sauce
1 juice glass (about 3/4 c.) + 1/4 c. water
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
1 medium onion
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. dried mustard
3 heaping tsp. Sugar

2 T. sesame seeds (or more to taste)
5 or 6 scallions, white and green parts
1 clove garlic
dash of pepper


It doesn't seem like enough liquid, but the chicken makes some of its own and it helps to turn it from side to side occasionally. In a dish marinate chicken in above mixture for at least 6 hours or overnight.


Grill or bake (best if grilled).

That peanut butter pie is totally do-able! I'm looking for an easier alternative dessert. Thanks!

That peanut butter pie looks not only totally do-able but totally rich!!!!

and yummy!!

Actually, I feel terribly guilty eating anything I know is very rich and bad for me - so I buy them ready made and can tell myself I don't know what's in it.

And the calorie/etc/etc count on the packaging is so small I can't read it

Can I?

We usually do the peanut butter pie at Passover but you can do it any time of year. It is AMAZINGLY rich and you only need the smallest of slices, we cut the slices about half the size you would normally cut.

I just mixed up the peanut butter pie. It was quite easy to make and if what I cleaned out of the bowl to "taste" is a sample, it's going to be yum! Up in the freezer!


Next day. Had some pie. That is delicious! New favorite dessert!
