Carrot Recipe
Delicious the way I made it using this as a general idea: I grated four cups of carrots, and in a frying pan (not a saucepan - wanted to keep the boil time low) added the carrots and a can of sweetened condensed milk and on high boiled for about 10 minutes constantly stirring. I did add a little bit of milk near the end because I wanted the carrots to be soft. After all that had boiled out (for the most part) I added about 1/2 cup of brown sugar. In a seperate pan I melted some butter and added slivered almonds (waht I had on hand) and raisins. I even added some dates I had....after sauteing them for a few minutes I sprinkled some cloves and cinnamon on top of the carrots and put the nut raisin mixture on top and served. All of my very picky children enjoyed this "Indian dessert" and said it tasted like pumpkin pie. Really nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Corn Tortilla Chips
I know another reviewer said this was just common sense but honestly, I never thought of using corn tortillas for this purpose. Last month I was at a friends house and they made tacos by frying corn tortillas in half. It was so delicious (and so different, I always make my tacos with flour tortillas - technically a burrito I guess)..Fast forward to tonight kids and I were wanting nachos but I did not want to load 4 kids up just to go get some tortilla chips...then I thought "hmm..." and googled to make sure there was no fancy trick required for tortilla chips. There isn't and so I made these and they were delicious and really makes nachos even cheaper to make. I used older corn tortillas also.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
Simple recipe with tasty results. I do believe these were the best (and easiest) biscuits I have ever made. Lots of options with these. Tomorrow night I am flavoring the shortening with garlic powder and adding shredded cheese. This is my 'go to' biscuit recipe from now on!
