Cow Pies
These are so delicious, been looking for an oatmeal cookie-type recipe with choc chips and no raisins. Didn't have semisweet choc so used half milk choc and half dark choc. Also, I only put 6 on a tray rather than the usual 12 as they do spread (like cow pies do!) Had to cook for about 11 1/2 minutes.

Buttermilk Pancakes I
This was great!! I had spare buttermilk from a previous recipe and decided to make these for my son before school. He LOVED them! They are so easy to make and so quick too! I was going to do what others suggested and add a tsp of vanilla but forgot. It didn't matter though because they tasted delicious without it. I also didn't have any oil so used butter instead which worked perfectly. I don't have a blender but the food processor worked just as well. The pancakes are so light and fluffy, perfect. Thank you.

Hearty Beef Stew
Ok recipe for a base but I had to tweak it to make it work. Marinated the beef in the teriyaki sauce over night and omited the paprika. Added an extra potato to bulk it out for starters. Cooked it on high for 10 hours for the potatoes to get soft enough. WAY too much liquid in the recipe. Allrecipes.com got it wrong to adjust the liquid content, this is a stew after all not a soup. Seeing as I had too much liquid I blended 1/2 cup sour cream with 1 heaping tablespoon of flour. Tempered the cream mixture with some of the hot liquid then mixed it all together; which thickened it up to stew quality quite nicely. I also took other raters advice and added some peas near the end. A good recipe to start with but definately needs some help.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
