I'm sure that makes absolutely no sense, but hopefully it will shortly.

A few weeks ago, [ profile] masterofmusings and I had a bet going as to
what time I'd get back from a bowling outing that I went on. Pointless
really, especially since we both didn't mind losing, but it was still kinda
fun. If I lost, I said that I would make him whatever meal he wanted while
he was here, and if he lost, I'd get to pick a place to have food delivered
the next time I go visit him since cooking isn't exactly one of his better
talents. GRIN!!! Well, I lost. Therefore, he came up with the meal that he
wants. Grilled cheese sandwiches, mashed potatoes with real butter, (the
potatoes have to be real too, no instant), and banana bread. So, given his
request, I went on a search for a good banana bread recipe since the one I
used to use has gone the way of many items of mine. And, I came up with what
sounds like an absolutely wonderful, moist recipe. Here it is )

Personally though, I won't be adding the nuts, but otherwise, it sounds
really good so I can't wait to give it a try next week.

And another recipe. This is really awesome sauce, but I also wanted to try the new IE 8 accelerator feature that lets you select text from a web page and send it automatically to Live Journal. Very cool stuff. In any case though, this stuff is awesome!!!

How to make delicious Honey Dill Sauce
By Stellamau, eHow Member

Honey Dill Sauce is easy to make, and absolutely delicious. Its the perfect dip for chicken fingers, and it tastes awesome on French Fries as well! Makes oven baked French Fries taste even better, too.

InstructionsDifficulty: Easy
Things You’ll Need:
1/2 cup Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1/4 cup liquid honey
About 1 tsp. Dill
Small bowl

Step1Add the half cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip and the quarter cup honey into the bowl. Stir until the mixture becomes slightly opaque, as if you could almost see through it.

Step2Add the one tsp. of Dill. Mix until blended. The mixture should be slightly see through, and you should be able to see the flecks of dill all the way through out. If it is not light enough, more honey can be added. The mixture should be a pale caramel color.

Step3If you like, you can refrigerate for about a half hour, as letting it sit lets the flavors come together. If you want to use it right away, then do! Just dollop on your plate or in a bowl for serving the family.

Well, it's time to talk turkey again. Okay, so actually it's hamburger, but
what's the difference, right? Okay okay!! So there's a big difference, but
whatever. I'm talking about my meal for tonight. I'm going to be making good
use of the crock pot again, this time with a meatloaf and potatoes )
Then, I'm going to be even more domestic and stuff and make a chocolate cherry cake with frosting )

I can't wait to try both of these recipes because they both sound so
good!!!!. Normally I wait until after I've tried a recipe to post it, but
not this time. The meatloaf I got from a list, and the cake I got from
someone in a chat room. Now, if only the dishwasher would stop so that I can
take the crock out of it and get things started ...

I got a great email today and just had to write about it. You can all call me a nerd if you want, but I'm excited. national Braille Press has released a new book. It's called Slow Cooker Meals and it's by Betty Crocker. The book is only $5.00, and I can get it in downloadable PortaBook! 56 recipes, and the entire recipe list is available online to torment me! Like I said, you're probably thinking I'm a nerd, but oh well, I'll deal with it. SMILE! Once I actually go and get the book I'll be telling everyone about the things I'm making anyway, so you'll all know what's happening when. Later!

Well, I said yesterday that I was going to try this recipe last night, and if I liked it I'd post it. So, here it is. It was definitely not what I expected, but it was good. It definitely wasn't the pot pie thing that I thought it would be. If you don't like quiche I would still recommend this. I'm not a fan of eggs, but this really doesn't taste weird or anything. I made a couple of changes, primarily because I don't have any kind of pie pan in this entire place. So, I doubled the recipe and added an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time. Oh, and I substituted those nasty onions for mushrooms. Much better! SMILE! So, here goes.


1 lb ground Beef
1 cup Onion, chopped
1/2 TSP salt
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Bisquick Baking Mix
2 Eggs

Preheat oven to 400°F
Cook onion & ground beef; drain. Stir in salt.
Spread into a greased 9" pie plate.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Stir remaining ingredients in a bowl until
blended. Pour over ground beef mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.
