  1. My favorite quick recipe is for crab rangoons.
    8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    4 green onions, chopped fine
    4 oz. fake or real crabmeat, chopped
    mix well.
    using wonton wrappers, put approximately 1/2 tsp. of filling in center. Pull the four corners together and squeeze to form a pouch. I use my mini muffin tin and push each wonton into cup. This recipe should make 24-28 rangoons. since this is more than the tin holds i put the extras in between. if you don't have a mini muffin tin, you can just put them on a baking sheet. Pop into a 400' oven ofr 8-9 minutes. These are good and NOT fried so they are good for you!

    I love cookbooks. That is one of the places I find the recipes I test for my recipe blog!

  2. Okay I am ready to win this book, so here is my favorite recipe and it is oh so simple.

    Pimenot cheese spread.
    shredded chedder cheese
    real mayo
    sliced pimentos(jar)
    salt & pepper to taste.

    Ok, all you do is mix each of these up adding as much mayo as you like to taste, there is no certain amount because each person has a different prefference for the spread. This is yummy, is great with dipping Frito chips and is also great as a sandwich. Enjoy and Happy Holidays.

  3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

    2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    1 cup peanut butter

  6. My favourite recipe -

    ANZAC Biscuits: Cookies

    1 cup flour
    pinch salt
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup rolled oats
    125 grams butter
    1 tblsp golden syrup
    2 tblsp water
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp vanilla essence

    1.Sift the flour and salt together into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and rolled oats.
    2.Melt the butter, golden syrup and vanilla together. Dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water and mix into the flour with the melted butter, stirring until all the ingredients are combined.
    3.Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on greased trays. (Flatten lightly with a fork.)
    4.Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 12-15 minutes until the biscuits have flattened out and have become a reddish brown. Transfer to a cake rack to cool. They will crispen as they cool. Store in an airtight container. Makes 3 dozen.

    History has it that ANZAC biscuits or cookies to Americans, were baked by women during WW1 for their sons/husbands/brothers/fiances etc overseas on deployment. Basically they are a rolled oat biscuit made without eggs in order that they keep longer. The golden syrup is the binding agent, golden syrup is basically a light treacle.
