No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
***8/20/10 I just made the recipe using only oats & no rice crispies as I did below. I still used Country Crock marg instead of butter. You really need to increase the quick cooking oats to 3 & 1/2 cups to get a good consistency cookie. *** Yummy & perfect setting!!! I used Country Crock marg instead of butter, a thick brand of peanut butter, 2 cups quick oats, & 2 cups rice crispy cereal ~chewy & crispy!!! Made about 22 three inch cookies. It only took about 50 min.s to set! This recipe doesn't turn out dry or gritty or sticky ~perfect!!! Thx for the excellent cookie recipe, Denise! =) P.S. I used the amounts listed for the sugar, butter, peanut butter, & cocoa, etc (except for the oats & crispies as said above) & they turned out PERFECT!!!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Good idea to use slow cooker... don't add any salt til after the beans are tender... I've always heard & read that salt hinders the beans' reconstitution (or rehydrating) process... wait til after they are tender to liking & then season. It's also a good idea to presoak the beans or do the quick soak method first as it's scientifically said to reduce gas...

Peanut Butter Honey Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Great recipe, especially for kids... I add extra powdered milk to mine to make them easier to roll into balls & not be sticky as we don't coat them with anything... my 10 & 8 year old love 'em... so do I... we've always liked peanut butter... my mom use to stir peanut butter & honey together & put 'em on saltine crackers! =)

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I haven't tried this version. The one I came across was 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup honey, & 2 cups powdered milk. I found that they form & keep better using 2 1/2 cups powdered milk with the 1 cup honey & the 1 cup of peanut butter. I used a leveled measuring tablespoon spoonful to form uniform balls. Makes 35 balls. My growing boys love 'em. They are nutritious enuf the way they are. Some users added wheat germ... wheat germ packs in a LOT of extra calories... google wheat germ... if your child doesn't need a big calorie boost, leave it out... PB&J sammies with a glass of milk are nutrious enuf the way they are... I grew up eating PB&J sammies without adding anything else... tho, we did eat them on whole wheat bread... honey, peanut butter, & milk are good for children once in a while. If it's a snack, it doesn't have to have as many or more calories than a lunch or a meal... *I store them at room temp in a covered container with aluminum foil (or could use wax paper) between the layers of balls. They'll keep well for a couple weeks so you can make a double batch at once, if desired.

Deviled Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
***KEEP IN COVERED CONTAINER(S): be advised that mix cannot remain out in opened bowls for too long because it becomes stale pretty quickly & loses its flavor. See my toned down version, Cheerios & Chex mix...*** Back to the Deviled Chex Mix rec: It's a tasty combo of spices! I only used 2 Tbsp of sugar & added 1/2 tsp of onion pwdr, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, & two finger pinches of cayenne pepper. I also only used what I had on hand which was 3 cups corn Chex, 3 cups rice Chex, 1 cup Cheerios, & 1 cup peanuts. Only nuke the mix for 2 minutes, stirring after one minute or the nuts will be yuck... off-topic tip: use your old, big popcorn (or cookie) tins to store & keep cereal fresh. I also keep a cup scoop inside w/the cereal. I bought a box each of rice & corn Chex & keep them mixed up together in one large tin. The other tin I have Cheerios in at the moment. I label the tins, hand printing the cereal name in big letters on printer paper, cut it out, & tape it to one side of the tin. I actually have 3 labels on one tin: Corn Rice Chex, Shredded Wheat, and Marshmallow Mateys. Whichever cereal is in the tin, I have that label facing out. The other tin, I have one label that says: Honey Os or Cheerios or Scooters. The tins store prettily on top of the fridge for quick access to our freshly kept cereals! =) P.S. I also made our peanuts chewy by soaking them in sugar water (1/2 cup water & 1/2 tbsp sugar) for 10 min.s first, drain well...
