What can I make with NATURAL Peanut Butter?

I mixed about 1/2 cup of natural pb with 1/2 pack of cream cheese, an egg, and vanilla extract. Then dotted that in brownie batter. Pb cheesecake brownies:)

I'm 8 wks. pregnant and HATE FOOD. :) Need help...

I ate toast with cream cheese, plain noodles, plain yogurt, (that was with my 4th child, a girl).....
With my 3 boys, I couldn't eat or drink anything! !! I was hospitalized 3 for dehydration with my first, and put on zofran with all 4 pregnancies. My hubby was on cooking duty during those months too!! ;)

Tell me how you make your Ground Beef Tacos

My sisters in laws pat raw ground beef on half a side of a corn tortilla, then sprinkle with season salt, and fold over the other side. They tooth pick them closed, then deep fry. Very good!

Icing for watermelon cake

Maybe sprinkle powdered sugar over the whole 'cake' to absorb some of the liquid that naturally occurs in watermelon before frosting it.

I agree!! To me, it's flavorless! I'd rather have plain Ol' chocolate cake!

What to eat with cottage cheese?

I love to add chopped green olives, chopped jarred jalepeno, and chopped up green onion to cottage cheese, and eat it on top of sliced of cucumber. So yummy!!

What fast food do you eat rarely, but that first bite think "Wow, this is so good!"

Where in nm do you live? I'm in Rio Rancho.

What to do with Canned Black Olives?

I don't find food chick's comment mean at all! If someone receives them in a food donation, they can add them to many recipes, and get a good use out of them!

Take those charred/ BBq veggies and let ppl make soft tacos:) corn & flour tortillas, the veggies, salsa, sour cream or plain yogurt, cheese if wanted, and a citrus coleslaw.

Raising a non-picky eater

No, not always did they willingly eat it. Many times my oldest(when he was younger) would gag and vomit, but we prepare that dish again, and make him eat it. Those foods are now some of his favorites!! ( beans, eggs)

Raising a non-picky eater

My children are 7, 8, 9 yr old boys. I also have a 8 month old baby girl, but she's still on baby food;). We have always fed the boys what we eat. I have always added onion, garlic, and spices to their food. Cinnamon to batters, and different flavors to basic foods. I add Italian seasoning to all my pizzas( fresh, frozen, or take &bake) my kids eat everything!! When I was a kid,my dad had us eating raw garlic, & bone marrow. He would give us a quarter to eat weird things:) none of us are picky eaters. My husband also Wil eat anything. It's definitely the way parents raise their children. Also, my boys grew up eating all fresh veggies without dressing. If you start that way, they will learn to enjoy the flavor of the veggie, not the dressing. :)

How to make my chocolate chip cookie recipe more healthy

I also use the same recipe, BUT I use the real butter, and I use just one stick of it. Also I Completely Melt it, and it's perfect!! And not greasy. Sometimes I use a little water to make the dough fully come together. Also sometimes I add ground flax to the dough.

Who still drinks soda?

Nope! Never had it in the house growing up. My mom let us order it when we went out to dinner, but then as I got older, I started ordering water in resturants. Now in my own home I don't buy it either. I can't stand it really:)

Baptism Brunch Help...

I agree about a casserole, a grits one, also maybe an egg, meat, bread one. I like the fruit salad idea. Pasta salad is a good idea too:)
