    I think I hit my goal last year of 24 new recipes, give or take. I have so many cookbooks so my goal is at least 2 a month just from the cookbooks.

    Baked pumpkin snickerdoodles today to use up pumpkin. These were interesting because did not require eggs. Dough too soft so maybe more flour next time.

    Made these last night, I've never eaten a stuffed pepper let alone make them. I followed the recipe exactly and dh claimed they were the best he's ever had.

    Just FYI I started microwaving the peppers w/ a little bit of water in a covered casserole dish instead of using the boiling water (which I always thought was too much work). I think the microwave does a good job.

    Needed to use up buttermilk. Did not have margarine on hand. I found most of the cake recipes in my old Betty Crocker cookbook use shortening and also many use buttermilk. I made this one using equal parts vanilla, orange and almond extract. I made buttercream icing and used half vanilla and half orange extract - a mistake since I seem to pick up a bitter taste that I attribute to the orange extract.

    Made this yesterday. My plan was to make it and freeze in portions for when I needed a low point meal. Decided to have it for dinner, everyone had seconds and there was not a drop left in the pot! Can't wait to make it again. I used 3 tea. chili powder and about 1/4 tea. red pepper flakes. Also I only used one poblano pepper. I will make it exactly the same next time.

    Made this recipe but without nuts. Not too sure about the result, so may not repeat.

    OK, that recipe is really more like cobbler, the cake mix and butter on top are like the cobbler topping. I don't know why they call it "cake".

    I've always known it as dump cake. It's popular in Dutch oven ckking circles.

    Ckking should be 'cooking'.

    We tried 3 semi new recipes today, half batch of a chocolate chip bar Husby used to make a lot but not lately, a half batch of brownies, and a small batch of peach crisp. All were cooked in the microwave. He's happy with all of them especially the crisp, which turned into pineapple crisp due to lack of peaches. I added all of them to the camper cookbooks because they will be a little more healthy than Little Debbies and other junk food. I can make mixes of the dry ingredients at home to save money and avoid hauling a bunch of assorted ingredients along, which would take a lot of space. I can also sub Splenda for half the sugar in the recipes. It all helps and there's no difference in the taste.

    I'll make this Saturday for dad and brother. I made extra mini bow-tie pasta tonight.

    Last night I made a "golden brownie" recipe called "carrara brownies" from the book "365 great cookies & brownies". They were easy & good. Basically chocolate chip cookies in a pan.

    Got large sack of potatoes and good deal on ricotta cheese. Going to try ricotta mashed potatoes this week.

    I want to try this. It looks like a combination of egg salad and devilled eggs. Will try it with some green onions and maybe other herbs. Dill or tarragon would be good.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.
