Chess Bars

Omg...my wife told me about these and so I finally made them for her....needless to say I ate more than she did! They are really easy and soooo YUMMY!


Chess Bars
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick or butter or margerine(melted)
1 egg

8 oz of cream cheese-room tempature
3 eggs
1 box of confectionary sugar(yes the whole box)

Preheat oven 350 and you need a 9x13 pan...the disposable tin ones work the best(SERIOUSLY!)

Mix the first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl until it forms a dough...butter hands and spread in pan.

Mix the last 3 ingredients in a large bowl until smooth(I used an electric mixer for that)Pour over cake mixture and bake for 35 minutes or until top is LIGHT brown. Cool completely before cutting.

They didn't say this in the reciepe but I will tell you all that they are suppose to be very light on top..not a full brown and it might seem as if it doesn't look done because it is still a little mushy on top...don't worry because it is suppose to be that way. After you cut them(when they are cool) put in an airtight container and store in fridge! OMG they are sinful!

This is one I shared in Cooking Chat, but I can't enter it into the contest because I copied it from Cooking Light (July/August 1994 issue, page 96) so it's copyrighted, but several people requested I post it, so here it is:

<b>Beef Fajita Salad in a Tortilla Bowl</b>

1 pound lean flank steak
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup tomatillo salsa
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
4 flour tortillas (10-inch)
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 (more) teaspoon chili powder
1 cup shredded lettuce
2 cups seeded, diced, unpeeled tomatoes
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream alternative
1/2 cup guacamole (or "mock guac")
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Destructions:

Trim fat from steak; cut steak diagonally into thin slices. Combine steak, onion, tomatillo salsa, hot sauce, and 1/4 tsp. chili powder in a large zip-top heavy-duty plastic bag. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to one hour.

Lightly coat both sides of tortillas with cooking spray; sprinkle 1 teaspoon of chili powder evenly over both sides of tortillas. Place each tortilla over the bottom of a 10-oz. custard cup coated with cooking spray; shape the tortillas around the inverted custard cups to form baskets. Place cups on a baking sheet; bake at 375? for 10 minutes or until tortillas are crisp. Set aside to cool.

Coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Add steak mixture, and saute for 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

To serve, place 1/4 cup shredded lettuce, 3/4 cup steak mixture, and 1/2 cup diced tomato into each tortilla basket. Top each with 2 tablespoons sour cream alternative and 2 tablespoons guacamole or mock guac. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon of sliced green onions.

Yield: 4 servings.

The woman who submitted the recipe, Marilou Robinson of Portland, Oregon, said the following: "The browned baskets tinted with red chili powder are beautiful. Friends tell me I must have put a lot of time and effort into this dish, which just isn't the case."

Cream of Potato Soup (Polish style)

This is a family recipe, brought over froom eastern Poland by my Baka ("Grandmother").

Peel, rinse and cube 3 pounds of taters (use white not red)
Slice three large white onions

Cover with water to the top of potatoes and onions
Add salt, coarse ground pepper to taste
Add 2 bay leaves and 3 balls of allspice
Add 1 tablespoon dried (2 teaspoons fresh) dill weed

Bring to boil, then simmer until tender (Don't use a lid!)

add either 1-1/2 cups leftover mashed potato or 1 cp instant (this is to thicken the soup, tastes way better than flour!)

In a bowl, mix 8 oz of sour cream and 4 oz half-and-half. Then add 2 cups of whole milk. Mix until smooth.

Make sure the soup will not come to a boil again or the soup will break!

Add milk and cream mix, slowly, stirring well. Simmer soup til hot.

Garnish each bowl with fresh dill weed and fresh ground black pepper.


(I know this is fattening but its the best tater soup! In my family, whoever gets the bay leaves in their soup does dishes that night. This soup is great cold or hot, and awesome in the cold days of winter!)

Oh, I have LOTS of cooking stories

When my dad broke his foot and my sister and I were taking turns taking care of him, one of the things we had to learn was how to cook for him. Since he's a diabetic with high blood pressure and cholesterol, we had to adjust a lot of recipes we had. He's pretty much a stickler for staying on his diet and he can't have but a little of this, but he loves it!

<font color="blue">******Low Fat Macaroni Salad*******

1 large box pasta (your choice)We like the 3 colored twists.

1 tomato

1/2 green pepper

1/2 large cucumber

1/2 onion

one jar low fat/fat free Miracle Whip

Boil pasta per box directions. drain and rinse with cold water.

Chop tomato, onion, cucumber and green pepper. Add to pasta with enough miracle whip so it's not dry. Salt and pepper to taste.

Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
