recipe request

I got one of those chain emails today, wherein you send a recipe to the person in the number one position.

The last time I got one of those, I sent recipes to the #1 person until she asked me to stop. I just kept thinking of things. Oh I love recipes. I forwarded the email, per instructions, to 10 people - none of whom were into it. I received exactly no recipes.

But that's okay, because I've gotten some fab recipes from the blogs I read. Offhand, Going Country's recipe for red beans and rice comes to mind.

So this time, I'm spamming YOU.

The request is for something you make all the time, with ingredients that are easy to find. If you can type it up off the top of your head, that's perfect.

Got anything? Please leave me a recipe in the comments. My non-recipe writing email friends will thank you for sparing them from this round.

1 stick butter
2.5 ounces cooking chocolate unsweetened
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
cook slow and low adding just a couple ingredients at a time making sure to keep stirring until smooth.
should be stored in refrigerator and heated to be used.
equally good on all desserts and fruit or just a spoon. the darker the chocolate used the better.

I'm sure i'm making up for breaking the last chain email that you were sent...

CRANBERRY ORANGE SAUCE from Williams Sonoma (modified)
3-4 cups cranberries
1 orange
1 granny smith apple
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. clove

take rind of orange and chop. boil in water 10 min. then drain and set aside.
peel, core and chop apple and put in saucepan with cranberries, juice from orange, sugar, orange rind and spices. add about 1 cup water,(more if the orange didn't yield much juice) mix together well, bring to a boil, partially cover and simmer for 15 min. will thickens as it cools. tastes better cold.

First, what is UP in the blogging world today? You're the THIRD person to link to me in her post today. Weird. But weird in a cool "look at MEEEE!" way.

Second, my sister sends me those chain things all the time. I never do them, because I've never gotten a recipe back, either.

Third, do you really need another recipe from me? Yes? Okay, here's one. Spread Nutella on graham crackers and eat until your stomach feels funny and you can feel the beginning twinges of adult-onset diabetes.

You're welcome.

Thanks, Bella! I promise to never bust on you for breaking a chain again.

Kristin - that is a staple.

I once had a fridge of which the manual contained a recipe for... icecubes!

Unfortunatly I lost the manual, so I have no ice for my drinks anymore.

This one might be too obvious and simple (if it is, sorry), but we love these potatoes.

Cook (or nuke, if you're not against it) some small reds or yukon golds, then cut into small cubes. Saute in olive oil with onions, garlic, red & green peppers (and some hot if you dig 'em), and add some seasoning salt and pepper. If you're a carnivore, crushed bacon is a great addition. Just when it's about finished (vegetables are cooked down), take it off the heat, and sprinkle with (copious quantities of) cheddar cheese. Cover and let the cheese melt.

Also, don't underestiimate the power of the Impossible Pies that you make with Bisquick. Recipes easy to find, and (though a carnivore) I particularly enjoy the veggie one - the cauliflower's yum! If you make the breakfast one, it won't cook right unless you cook the hashbrowns first separately.
