New Contest – Post Your Recipe Here

I decided to run a fun contest this week. Post your favorite recipe in comments below. I will pick one (or maybe two or three) to feature in my next book as well as put up on Sample Sunday Recipe blogs. It can be anything – main course, appetizer, drinks or dessert! You will get credit in the book as well as blog posts. So put on your chef head and…post away!

    Here’s an easyeasyeasy dessert that’s great for potlucks:
    We call it ‘Smoosh,’ but you call it whatever you want.
    1-2 pkgs Chips Ahoy cookies NO substitutes!
    Cool Whip, any variety

    Use a 13×9 pan. Dunk the cookies in milk and line the pan, break up cookies to fill in spaces. Dunk fast, you don’t want them too soggy.
    Spread Cool Whip. Depending on how much you love CW or ChipsAhoy, will tell you how many packages to use. It takes me 2 of each.
    Repeat layers. Refrigerate for a few hours. Enjoy! The cookies dissolve into the CW, making it smooshy.

    Hope you like it as much as we do!

    Here is my favorite Cheese/Cracker Dip to eat. Its also takes less than 5 minutes to make.

    1 lg. carton of cottage cheese
    1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
    1 pkg. of dry ranch dressing
    1 bottle of Pimento Cheese Spread

    Mix together and chill for about 10 minutes. Ready to serve. Eat with any kind of crackers.

      What’s ‘dry ranch dressing’. What’s in it? How would have your great-grandmother made it if she couldn’t buy the packet in the shop?

      • msthriller says:

        Mira, Dry ranch dressing packets have been around for as long as I can remember. They are used mostly in dip recipes and also as add-in for hamburger meat.

      • Britney Wilkins says:

        You usually find the ranch dressing packets by the salad dressing. They have those packets so you can either make homemade dressing or use them for dips.

    • msthriller says:

      Sounds yummy. I love a good, fast dip recipe.

      • mirabrown says:

        The trouble with ready made stuff is that it’s usually only available in one country. The rest of the world hasn’t got a clue what it is. If it were just a difference in terminology, that can be easily looked up, but localised brands are harder to chase up. ‘Ranch’ sounds like and American word, so I’m guessing that it’s available in American shops. If you look at the back of the packet it should list the ingredients, and that gives other people an idea of the flavour.

        Most places do carry it. I know Tescos in UK does. If not, subsitute with:

        ¾ cup dry parsley flakes
        ¼ cup dried minced onion
        1 Tbs. dried dill
        2 Tbs. onion salt
        2 Tbs., garlic salt
        2 Tbs. onion powder
        2 Tbs. garlic powder
