Peanut Butter Balls III
This is just like the recipe that my friend & co-worker Kelly made long ago, except using only 2 cups of powdered sugar....4 is too much. The rice crispies add great texture and crunch. Some use crunchy PB, as well, but I strongly prefer using creamy for these. I make these every Christmas to give as gifts. I found it too tedious dipping each ball one at a time, so I now line mini muffin tins with the mini liners, put 1 TB of melted chocolate in the bottom of each liner, drop in the ball and cover with more melted chocolate. You can decorate with Christmas sprinkles or finely chopped peanuts on top before they harden. They look beautiful & festive, taste delicious, and are very popular with everyone who receives them. They look so cute in the mini muffin liners! :-)

Strawberry Romaine Salad I
I have been making this salad for years and it's an all-time favorite & sure to please anywhere you take it...just be sure to toss right before serving. In my version of the dressing I use less poppy seeds (a little go a long way!) and I also add 1 tsp. of pure almond adds a fabulous twist to the flavor of the dressing and goes great with the strawberries. I also add candied almonds and use only spinach...but I think a little spinach would be ok. A mayo-type dressing seems to me like it would be too "heavy" for those tender spinach leaves. This is such an excellent summertime (or anytime!) salad! :-)

Wiener Winks
How cool are these!? I have unexpectedly been taken back to Sunnyside Elementary School on my favorite lunch day...weiner winks!!!! Yay!!!! I cannot wait to make these for my two boys...I tried once a long time ago but forgot to butter the bread. Couldn't figure out how something so simple didn't turn out the way I remembered them! I think the butter is the key! THANK YOU so much for posting this...I never forgot about those good 'ol winks. Now if I could only figure out how they made their pizza burgers, and those pioneer bars! (peanut butter bar w/choc. frosting) If anyone out there knows the school lunch recipie for either of those, please share! :-)
