Another winner of the Blue Ribbon Recipe Award!

Vjumpstart is the second winner of the Blue Ribbon Recipe Award! The recipe chosen was "Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies" which can be seen here

Today, I was actually searching the forums for a sugar cookie recipe, or something I could make that I didn't have to run out to the store to buy ingredients for (i.e. chocolate chips). I came across this recipe and thought it sounded worth a try!

These are wonderful and the kids went crazy for them. I am still baking them right now, it makes a rather large batch. You could omit the jelly too and just flatten the cookies with a fork for just plain peanut butter cookies. 10 minutes made them lightly browned and nice and soft, 12 minutes gives them a little crunch. The kids liked them either way!

Congrats Vjumpstart, and thanks for the recipe!

Our newest Blue Ribbon Recipe Award Winner is "Jeannie"! Congratulations Jeannie and thank you for the yummy recipe for Farmhouse Potatoes. My comments on the recipe are below as well as the link where I originally found it.

The recipe is one that I can follow, but there are folks out there that need exact, or close to exact, measurements. For those folks, my interpretations are as follows:

"in kettle cook 2 lbs russett potatoes in their jakcets"
- Boil 5-6 medium potatoes, unpeeled

The recipe calls for thinly sliced onion and chopped green pepper. We don't use green pepper as it does bad things to DH's stomach but if I were to use it, I would chop up a small green pepper, cored and seeded of course

As for the onions, I would say use 2 small onions or 1 medium-large onion. I used 2 tbsp of olive oil to cook the onions in, you may need more with the addition of the green pepper.

salt and pepper is "to taste"

Recipe for Farmhouse Potatoes

We had these with ham and green beans tonight. Very good!! Thanks again Jeannie!

We have another winner! She hasn't been active for a few months, so maybe this will bring hr back ;-) The member known as "jdd" had posted a recipe called "Sherried Beef". I made it for dinner tonight and it was great! My only changes were that I used Cream of Celery instead of Cream of Mushroom and I only used half of the onion seasoning mixture. I don't think I had a big enough roast to warrant that much seasoning.

Thanks jdd!

Here's the recipe

Wow I am so honored!

I have never won an award for anything, so to get two of them? WOW!
I am so sorry for not being more active.Following my amputation surgery it has been tough finding energy to do much of anything, but the good news is hopefully by the end of the week I will have my new leg! Now I get to learn how to walk all over again!
But in the meantime I have uncovered a rather nasty neurological disorder that has had me having MRI's to rule out a brain tumor (thank the Lord, no tumors!) And several Spinal taps have been done. they have me on meds now to try to help, but if my vision doesn't return soon, It'll be surgery on my eyes so I don't go blind and a shunt put in my spine. What I have is called Psuedotumor Cerebri, it's very rare (that would figure, right? LOL)
and only about 12,000 folks in the USA have it. So I have been in and out of Doctor's offices, having a battery of tests run, and another hospital stay in there too. This is why you fun and wonderful folks haven't seen me around.
Cindy, thanks sweetie for letting me now about this Honor that Amanda has bestowed upon me and my recipe!
I promise to be better about stopping by! Cindy you have permission to nag me if I don't check in!
I have missed you all!
Oh and we just had salads tonight, too hot for much of anything else!
