1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Pot Roast on: May 30, 2008 11:20:03 AM
I have a great recipe that I use when I make beef stew, it can easily be used to make pot roast. also i use a slow cooker for mine...

I use about a pound and a half of beef, so adjust this according to how much beef you have - and I eyeball everything, no measurements!!!
 
1/2 - 3/4 package of lipton onion soup mix
1 tablespoon mustard
1/4 wistershire sauce
3/4 can cherry coke (dont worry, it doesnt come out tasting like cherry or like coke!)
1/4 cup tomato paste
chopped veggies

I mix the soup mix, mustard, wistershire sauce, cherry coke and tomato paste in a bowl with a fork to try and mix it all together. Then I stick all of the meat and veggies into my slow cooker adn then pour the sauce over it all.

I cook it for about 6 1/2-7 hours. yum!

3  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chocolate Balls (heh!)--With How-To! on: May 13, 2008 07:49:19 PM
Ok, so I'm kind of known as a big baker... and since I made these - I cant stop making them. People are requesting them left and right!!!

I do have one little pointer, for those who dont have fancy equipment: if you let the cream cheese sit out and soften, and you do a good job of crushing the oreos (I put a few in a bowl at a time and use a cup (a glass) to crush them) then you can just mix the whole thing together with a good strong spoon. You'll have to use some muscle, but you dont have to use the mixer if you dont want to. Personally, I HATE cleaning my mixer, so I just use the spoon mixing method and it comes out great.

The only problem ive had is when i tried to dip the balls in white chocolate. No matter how carefull I am, little tiny flecks of oreo get into the white chocolate and ruin its pristine white-ness, and it just ends up looking dirty...

any suggestions?

yum, nutella mousse sounds awesome. Did you whip the heavy cream and then fold it into the nutella?  Or did you just mix it all together?
5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: How to transport cupcakes? on: April 18, 2008 07:59:27 AM
I was actually just eyeing this the other day, they were selling them in my local grocery store. I dont know of anything better, though I dont know if you want to go spending money just for this one occasion.

Other than that - I've put cupcakes into this brownie pan that has a snap on tupperware lid. I'm not sure what brand it is, but its pretty convenient, the lid is raised, so as not to interfere with the heaps of icing I put on my cupcakes Smiley

this is kind of like it, only its a longer pan and this isnt the same brand I have:

I made a batch of these last night for a staff meeting this morning, and of course - they're a hit! The only thing I'm wondering is, can this be done with any other kind of cookie? Would it be as tasty with, say, nutter-butters crushed and mixed with creamcheese? Or - what about good ol' chips a hoy?

Im not saying its not perfect as is with the oreos, but I'm just thinking of expanding, making an assortment of balls. what do you guys think?

8  COOKING / Dessert / Re: rainbow cheesecake...now with two attempts! updated 15Mar08 on: April 04, 2008 12:05:55 PM
So, has anyone else experienced this... I've made this twice now, the first time I brought it to a baby shower, and my friends mother "forgot" to put it out, even though I gently tried to remind her by casually mentioning that I'll need my cake plate before I go. She never put the cake out. So I was kind of confused and insulted, I mean, seriously this thing looked spectacular!

Then, I was telling my mother about it, and she was like, okay, why dont you make another one and bring it to dinner. So I did, and SHE didnt want to serve it. She didnt realize how bright the colors were going to be from my description, and apparently there are some people who get turned off by the idea of food coloring. She said she wouldnt even taste it because she was afraid it would taste like a mouth full of chemicals. She then told me that she'd rather risk insulting me then risk grossing out her other guests by serving it!!!!!

In the end, I put it out on the table anyway and EVERYONE ate and loved it, saying how fun it was. But I just thought that was insane!!!

does anyone else feel that way about food coloring?
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Glass transfer? on: April 04, 2008 11:07:26 AM
I'm not totally sure what exactly I'm even asking for, but I keep seeing these vases in stores that have these color images sort of pressed onto them. The image is pretty set on, as if it was transfered with glass paint or something, like - it cant be scratched off (not that I tried to scratch it off... just investigating).

Here is one example of what I'm talking about, the designs are different all around the vase... but it doesnt have to be that way, its just in this one...



any ideas?
