1  Blushing Apples in Dessert by retroxxlove on: December 17, 2006 05:15:47 PM
So I decided to cook again.
This time its a peeled apple cooked in strawberry jello.

Here's what you need:
4 Apples (Of your choice)
2 Strawberry Jello Packets (Or any red jello mix)
1/2 Cup Cool Whip (not frozen)
4 Cups of Water
1/4 Tsp of Ground Cinnamon
A leaf or two of mint (For Garnish)

What to do:
In a medium saucepan or some pan big enough to hold 4 cups of water, place the cinnamon and jello mix. Add the 4 cups of water.
Peel and core your apples. After the jello mix has come to a boil add the four apples. Cover and Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until it is forkable. Every 5 minutes turn your apples.

When finished, you may cool them or serve them as they are warm. Add a dollop of Whip cream on the side (2 tbsp). You can add the mint leaf inside the core to give it the apple look. I didn't. But If serving, It would look pretty. :]
I personally enjoyed them warm.
Here's what it looks like:
(This is the first one. The second looked amazing. But it was eaten too quick for me to get a picture of it!)

So, I was browsing through a neat magazine and found this quick, amazing recipe.

Small Tortiallas
1 cup of Salsa
Ranch or Sour Cream
1 lb Lean Ground beef

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Fold your tortillas to fit inside the cupcake pan. Place in oven for ten minutes. In mean time, brown your meat. Then add the salsa and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the meat to the bowls and add garnish as needed.
It's so simple!!

3  Easy Cranberry Muffins!! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by retroxxlove on: December 03, 2006 08:00:05 PM
This afternoon, I was in such a cooking mood. I found this recipe in the Dallas Morning News--It just seemed so simple, even I couldn't fail at it.

Cranberry Muffins.

They were delicious.
Here are the ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup fresh orange juice (You can taste it in every bite :])
2 eggs, slightly beaten
3 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

What to do:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees (I recommend 350-375). Collect two bowls. One for your liquid ingredients and the other for your dry ingredients. In your bowl of dry ingredients make a little well in the center to pour your liquid ingredients (just a trick of the trade). Then mix until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Then add your cranberries. Just fold them in. Be sure not to over mix. You do want a semi-lumpy batter. Pour into muffin tray (about 2/3 full) or whatever you think is best. Cook for 20-25 minutes.

I was thinking you could try different ingredients. Instead of orange juice use cranberry apple and instead of cranberries use strawberries. I'll be trying something like that soon.

But I must say that were delicious. And I'm very proud! They were super easy!

4  Origami Star Ear Rings. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by retroxxlove on: August 01, 2006 07:57:04 PM
I got this idea from another craftster. I can't quite remember the user name. But her ear rings looked really similar to mine, my stars just have a different paper pattern, and I am quite please with how they turned out.

Here's the one I made, I found an Orange Record. I just cut it in half and glued it at an angle so it could stand. It was really easy, and fun to burn!! haha. Good Idea. Gave me something to do.
