Marlene's egg dinner
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Soups. I love cooking soups. They are quick, easy, and a good way to get your veggies in and your belly full. I also love making Mexican and Asian dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My own egg dish, something between a strata and a quiche. I use left over high quilty whole grain breads, which I grind into crumbs, fresh herbs from the garden, different veggies, and sliced green olives. I use yummy cheeses such as feta or blue cheese. It is always a bit different, but always yummy. I even got my husband to eat onion with this dish. I just puree the raw onion in the milk, and he could not tell it was in there, but the taste was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
I am not used to cooking pot roast, and the first time I made it I was making it for a crowd. It was not bad (so I am told, being a vegetarian I did not try it), but it was dry. Even though I am a veggie, I usually cook meats very well.

Chewy Caramel
This is the recipie I have used a few times. One warning: make sure you are ready to wrap up most of this to give away, otherwise you will eat the whole pan! When I make these I put some chocolate chips in the bottom of the 9 X 13 pan on some wax paper, I put that on a warm surface until the chocolate melts, then I spread it around to coat the bottom of the pan. Then I fill the pan with pretzle twists. When the caramel is done cooking I pour it over the pretzels. When the caramels had set up part way, but still warm, I put more chocolate chips on top and spread tham around. You can sprinkle finely chopped nuts on top of this if you like, or leave it plain. Of course, if the chocolate is not spead evenly the nuts can help make it look nicer.

Easiest Egg Nog
Quick, easy, and yummy. I made some changes, because I have trouble drinking milk, and I didn't want to give my kids raw eggs. I used vanilla flavored Silk soy milk and pasteurized egg product (i.e. Egg Beaters) and replaced the vanilla extract with a capful of rum extract. Like another reviewer, I added the tiniest pinch of salt, after tasting it first. Then for a little thickness and flare, I beat pasteurized egg whites with a little sugar and rum extract until stiff. I put a scoop of the egg whites in each cup. You can also carefully fold the beaten egg whites in, or if serving in a punch bowl add dollops of the egg whites to the bowl before adding the nog.
