Subject: Apple Nachos
Security: Public
I made this dessert because they didn't have any candied or caramel apples in Sweden like they do back home in the states and I wanted to have a treat just for Autum. So, Apple nachos is born.

You use the following:
Apples (doesn't matter what kind, or what form you have them in-slices or pieces)
Caramel (can be sauce you use on ice cream, which I use or caramel candies)
Marshmellow (I've used mellow fluff before)
Peanuts (whole or chopped)

You arrange the apples, marshmellow/fluff, caramel, and peanuts on a plate or in a bowl the way you want to. Microwaving it is an option, and I do it for twenty to thirty seconds although I do before I put the peanuts on.

I have two pizzas to show you all. The first one I got in Sweden. In Sweden, you have a huge selection of pizzas to choose from at all pizza parlors. My favorite pizza place in Sweden is Star because they make pizzas similar to the way we do in the states (more bread, lots of sauce and cheese where normally the pizza has less bread/crust, less sauce, and less cheese...but a shitload of toppings on top).

Here's an "American" pizza called the Chicago. It had tomatoes, bacon, and pepperoni on top.

This is a candy that's very delicious. I've been eating it since I was young as three, and making it since I was young as twelve.

....chocolate chip cookies.

For some reason, the Nestle Toll House recipe is always a hit.

 (sorry for the random photo!)

I almost always use the milk chocolate chip and always use butter.  (Also, I'm very partial to a type of butter that is local to me.  Certain brands do not have the same taste.)

This one recipe I can recite in my sleep:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix the wet ingredients until well blended.  Stir in the dry ingredients, then add the chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 F for 9-11 minutes.

Security: Public
I had this on Thanksgiving:

Clockwise from left to right: roll with sea salt butter, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, and beet salad. Center: seasoned chicken breast
On top of the chicken, taters, and stuffing is the gravy...which is a bit thin, but tasty.

The mashed potatoes and gravy were home made. The stuffing was Stove Top. I brought everything else from the store. I seasoned the chicken breast the day before Thanksgiving. Since I didn't take pictures of dessert, I had blue berry muffins and pepparkorka ice cream sandwich.

I'd love to see this community get active again. Inspired by the post last week, I decided I should do something worth posting, too!

On Friday, my husband and I made some spicy garlic beef with green beans. Actually, it mostly ended up just tasting spicy, the chili powder was kind of overpowering. But every so often you got a lime juice or garlic kick :)

Here it is, cooking on the stove:
Spicy garlic beef with green beans

And here is the final product, served over cilantro rice.

We also made our own pizza, too! No recipe here - we use a dough recipe from Martha Stewart but you can use whatever dough you want, or buy one from the store. We use Prego Traditional sauce, a bag of "pizza cheese" (that's what it says on the bag, yellow and white) and whatever toppings we want. This one has garlic, spinach and artichokes, cooked for a few minutes in the juice from the artichoke jar before putting on the pizza for baking. Finally, I added some sliced tomatoes and little dabs of goat cheese before baking. Yum!

I've made Wild Mushroom Bisque several times in the last month. I love the soup from Au Bon Pain and tried to make my own version at home.

Tonight I made an attempt at a deep dish pizza.  Lately, I haven't liked to eat meat and such this pizza only has cheese and mushrooms.

The crust is homemade, mostly just yeast, flour, salt and sugar.    Other than that, it was just thrown together.

Here's a picture:
