David's Recipe for "Pretzel Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats"

Started by Baxjaxmom in Kitchen & Food Talk 1411063964.08

Just wondering if anyone else has tried this recipe yet? I was anxious to try it, as it sounded good and something different. I went to the store specifically to purchase the ingredients, came home and followed the recipe explicitly and found it to turn out as a huge disappointment!! It is "crumbly" when sliced into bars, as opposed to sticking together and being chewy like the original "Rice Krispies Treat Bars" and for my taste, it is not nearly sweet enough by comparison. I'm thinking the saltiness of both the peanut butter along with the pretzels is very detracting from the small amount ... Continue Reading

On 8/7/2014 pupcakes said: I am very picky about pecan pie because I don't like a custardy pie. I make a "chewy" pecan pie & got the recipe in the early 80's at my daughter's school from a potluck. I second Zhills request. Can you please share the recipe you reference for a "chewy" pecan pie? Continue Reading

Once we found out what kind it was, we all dumped it as quick as possible. It was a Sausage Cake! We didn't bother tasting it, it just sounded awful. Well around 2am we were hungry again and they made me be the "Mikey" and test the cake. It was delicious. No trace of the sausage anywhere. It was moist and reminded me of a spice cake with thick homemade caramel icing. I searched for that recipe forever. I finally found it. It was just as great as I remembered it. ...

I have searched on the website of my local Kroger grocery store and got "0" results so apparently they do not carry it. Do you know who makes it, is it likely in among salad dressings wherever you shop, and are the a variety of brands for it? If I can't find it elsewhere, what would be a good substitute? Thanks for the recipe. Off topic but I haven't been on the boards in a while. What has happened to the "spell check" icon?... Continue Reading

Re: Seeking help in identifying a plant

Thanks so much for your suggestions!!! I was finally able to speak to the wife of the man who had tried to tell us the name of the plant and she doesn't have quite as heavy of an accent. She said that the name of this plant is "Green Swedish Ivy". So, what we were hearing as "shooter shabby" is "Swedish Ivy". I did find imagaes of the Swedish Ivy on Google and it is, indeed, the plant. Mystery solved!! Thanks again for the suggestions made. Continue Reading

 

Seeking help in identifying a plant

Last Reply by nantucket shore 1374349217.46 | Started by Baxjaxmom in In the Garden

I have exhausted all possible combinations of words on Google for trying to identify a specific plant in a hanging basket my friend and I found at a produce market recently. It was not identified with any sort of plant tag and when I inquired of the proprieter, he stated the name, which I could not understand because he spoke English with a very heavy accent. My friend understood him to say "It is a 'Green Shooter Shabby'". He then went on to say "most people just refer to it as "Shooter Shabby". That made no sense but we both repeated it (as we heard it) to him several times to ensure we wer... Continue Reading

Re: Cream Cheese Peach Pie

In Recipe Swap 1370274577.543

LilBit, this sounds like a wonderful Summertime dessert!!! I assume this is meant for fresh peaches; however, have you tried it with canned or frozen peaches and does it make a difference in the taste or the outcome? I further assume if canned peaches are used, they need to be very well drained OR could the juice from the peaches be used in place of the water? Thanks for sharing and TIA for your response to my inquiry. I'm looking forward to trying this!! Bax Continue Reading

I have one of these (I think it's the solo fill?) and I've never had a great cup come out of it. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've even ordered some of our favorite coffee before and it just does not work. Should the grounds be really packed in there? Looser? What? TIA Not really. I wish I had some great tips. I do use a filter that is supposed to be a little larger than the one that comes with the My... Continue Reading
