Well a friend of mine makes matrimonial cake with cranberries instead of dates. It is really good but I haven't gotten around to making it myself. Do you have a recipe for that or do you want me to post mine?
if you have the time i would really enjoy your recipe! thanks very much!!
anybody else need to clean out -lol... we will help you with those odd ends and leftovers or irems that we forgotten why we bought them in the first place -lol
Here you go. If you want to try the cranberry version, just spread the cranberry sauce over the bottom layer instead of the dates. It is really good that way.
1 1/4 cup flour (300 ml)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (375 ml)
1 cup brown sugar, packed (250 ml)
1 tsp baking soda (5 ml)
1/2 tsp salt (2 ml)
1 cup butter or margarine (250 ml)
Measure flour, oats, sugar, soda, salt and butter into a large bowl. Cut butter into the ingredients until crumbly. Press a large 1/2 - almost 2/3 into greased 9X9 - inch (22X22cm) pan.
1/2 lb dates (250 g)
1/2 cup granulated sugar (125 ml)
2/3 cup water (150 ml)
In saucepan combine dates, sugar and water. Bring to boil and allow to simmer until mushy. If mixture becomes too dry before dates have softened enough, add more water. If you find you have too much water, don't worry. Just keep simmering until some has been boiled away. Spread over bottom layer of crumbs. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top. Press down with your hand. Bake in a 350F (180C) oven for 30 minutes until a rich golden brown color. If you are in a great hurry and your butter is hard as a rock you can still make this using melted butter. It will be more difficult to spread the top crumbs.
The butterscotch chips is an easy one! :o) I personally like this better with white mini marshmallows. Of course this is not good if you can't get peanut butter or marshmallows...
1/4 cup butter or margarine (50 ml)
1/2 cup peanut butter (125 ml)
1 cup butterscotch chips (250 ml)
8 oz small colored marshmallows (250 g)
Melt butter and peanut butter in a large saucepan over low heat. (I use the microwave). Stir in chips until all melted. Cool until you can old your hand on the botom of pot. To speed process, stir while holding pan in cold water unti cool enough. Add marshmallows and stir until all are coated. Pack down in a 9X9 inch (22X22cm) pan that has been lined with wax paper. Refrigerate.
Variation: to above ingredients add 1/2 cup rice krispies.
I don't have a recipe for you, but I would cook the rice in the coconut milk and mix in some chopped apricots and nuts.
I could use up three of your items you listed, Twinkle......
Cut the apricots in smaller pieces, add the mixed nuts, and the bag of butterscotch chocolate chips - toss together & put in a bowl - there you have a good snack mix just to pick at and enjoy! Something similar to Gorp.
I have some things to use up as well. There might be more if I think about it...
O ring noodles
Cheesecake flavor instant pudding
oh i love Panko breading...its great on shrimp too, and cheesecake pudding would make a nice trifle and chichapeas...make great hummus...or ing noodles, mix in a soup of anykind..nice mix
SMILES GO A LONG WAY..SO LAUGH AND SMILE TODAY! ENJOY LIFE!
MY DOBEE DOO BLACK LAB AND BEST FRIEND!
I cannot empty my pantry since we are living on the bare essentials from day to day. We're going home in about 3-4 weeks so we're not stocking up on anything! Yeah! We're going home!
Twinkle is out of commission on the TOH site for now. She can't log in. So let's keep this going for her!!
We need renate and jet too! Poor Lydia..I miss her. I have a pic of her with Doby and Maynard that I use as my book mark...so I get to see her a lot, I just haven't talked to her in forever.
OK, I'm working on breakfast right now but I'll come back and see what I can do with some of these recipes.
I have a very difficult time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger.
Berny & jav4u - I still haven't tried Panko crumbs - I need to buy some at the store.....I keep meaning to buy some but always end up just getting regular breadcrumbs, the old stand by, LOL, old habits are hard to break! I have a box of Tempura Batter Mix in my pantry - the brand is Hime & it's a product of Japan. Maybe you have tried that jav4u with your shrimp? It's very good - I haven't used it for shrimp but did tempura veges before, yum! I love hummus and so does my family. Lydia posted a recipe for hummus that I use now - it's delicious, a bit of work putting it in the blender and all, well, I think when I made it the last time, I doubled the recipe so that was a bit more work, but so worth it - a very good recipe! It's expensive to buy in the store so I like making my own.
Shannon - How great that you will be coming home in a few weeks! I remember when you were just talking about this big trip & moving and all & all the anticipation. I think I have the same picture you are talking about of Lydia - was that included in her Xmas card last year? If so, that's the picture I have too.
Twinkle - Hope to see you back posting soon - I miss you!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you all are having a great day. A friend of mine stopped by for a visit and it was nice catching up with her a bit. Our weather is very strange today - I opened up all the windows as it was supposed to go up to 70º and it was nice and warm for awhile while I took my walk earlier, but now it's cloudy and cooler - very unpredictable! Good thing I walked today - I just ate a bunch of Baby Ruth candy bars..........well, the little miniature ones, but I think I ate at least a half a dozen - boy, are they good!
Heidi I have one recipe for Panko crumbs called panko Chicken and they are really good. I would like more recipes since I bought so many boxes of the stuff when I was in the US (I haven't seen it here yet).
I tried to find Lydia's recipe for hummus but I couldn't find it. Would you post it for me here please?
Here is Lydia's Recipe, Berny!
Chickpea Lemony Spread
posted by patone_wi
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
1 (19 oz.) can chickpeas, drained
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Can also add paprika/toasted sesame seeds on top after you put it in a bowl. Should be covered and refrigerated. ( Lydia's comment: Believe me, cover this puppy, or it'll smell up your fridge).
This is a delicious hummus recipe! I made it exactly like Lydia posted but did not add as much fresh parsley & I added an extra clove of garlic. I doubled or maybe even tripled the recipe as we all love hummus and I wanted to have plenty on hand. I served it with pita bread that I cut up in pieces and heated till it got a little crispy.
