Kimberley says: (12:31:04 PM)
its super simple. i eyeball lots

Kimberley says: (12:31:08 PM)
so its a rough idea.

Kimberley says: (12:31:46 PM)
make a white sauce : equal parts butter and flour on lo heat until they melt and form an even consistency.

Kimberley says: (12:32:03 PM)
add milk slowly to fill in sauce

Kimberley says: (12:32:26 PM)
if you use 1/4 c butter and flour - try about 1/2 c milk

Kimberley says: (12:32:41 PM)
remember, the cheese will thicken the sauce, but you dont want it watery.

Kimberley says: (12:32:49 PM)
then add in as much cheese as you want.

Kimberley says: (12:33:02 PM)
if its too cheesey, add some milk to cut it down

Kimberley says: (12:33:16 PM)
and the trick is in the final herbs: oregano and dill weed.

mo & mouse

Chicken Tacos from Puebla

8 corn tortillas
2 tsp vegetable oil
225-350 g/ 8-12 oz cooked chicken, diced or shredded
225 g/ 8 oz can refried beans, warmed with 2 tbsp water to thin
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 avocado, stoned, sliced & tossed with lime juice
salsa verde, or salsa of your choice
1 canned chipotle chilli in adobo marinade, chopped, or bottled chipotle salsa
175 mL/ 6 fl oz sour cream
1/2 onion, chopped & sauteed
handful of lettuce leaves
5 radishes, diced
salt and pepper
optional: grated cheese

1. Heat the tortillas for a few seconds each in an ungreased non-stick frying pan in a stack, alternating the top and bottom tortillas so that the tortillas heat evenly. Wrap in aluminum foil or a clean tea towel to keep warm.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the diced or shredded chicken and heat through. Season with salt and pepper according to taste.

3. Thoroughly combine the refried beans with the cumin and oregano.

4. Spread one tortilla with warm refried beans, then top with a spoonful of the chicken, a slice or two of avocado, a dab of salsa, chipotle to taste, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of onion, lettuce and radishes. Season with salt and pper according to taste, then roll up, as tightly as you can. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and serve at once.

** I added 2tbsp of cocoa, 3/4 cup of whole oats, and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. I used half Splenda half sugar instead of all sugar. I also only baked them for about 20, maybe 25 minutes

Cheesy Beer and Spinach Dip [Nov. 7th, 2004|06:48 pm]

Cheesy Beer and Spinach Dip
(from allrecipes.com)

"Tortilla chips take on new meaning and purpose when dipped in this unpretentious cheese and spinach dip! A fondue dish is perfect for keeping the cheese melted and warm." Original recipe yield: 4.5 cups.

2/3 cup beer
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring beer to a boil. Lower heat. Slowly stir in Monterey Jack cheese and flour. Cook and stir until cheese is melted but not bubbly.
2. Mix spinach, cilantro, salt and pepper into the beer mixture. Serve warm.

i used Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale, because that's what i had around. i also didn't have any cilantro, so that got omitted. hahahah. this turned out super yummy, and i'm eating it with cut up pita right now. mmmm

These are the cookies I am making... but I did it a bit different. Instead of using a 15x10 cookie sheet (since i don't have one!), i used an 8x8 brownie type pan. So mine will probably need a little more time in the oven, and they'll be more bars than cookies, but i thought you might want the recipe.

Chocolate Chip Slab Cookies
1 cup margarine or 1/2margarine, 1/2butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream margarine and sugar together, beating thoroughly. Add vanilla and flour. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pat mixture onto a greased 15” by 10” cookie sheet that has sides. bake at 350F for 25mins. Cut into squares while warm.
