A Christmas Giveaway!

I'm doing a Christmas Giveaway! Since it turns out I'm a bit of a holiday foodie, and always looking for new recipes, share yours and I'll do a drawing for this great Chicken Soup book. Who doesn't love a little Chicken Soup, right? Contest ends next Wednesday morning, December 17. If you've already shared, you're already included (Mindi, Libby...?). I know some of my aunties reading have fantastic recipes... :)

You should taste my cheesy potatoes.....

Really, though, I'll have to think of a nice recipe. I like those kind books.

Laura Jean said...

Can I use my oreo truffle recipe???

Just did. :)

Leanne said...

Peg - you are one of the best cooks I know. How about your meatball recipe? I still make your french dip all the time!

Laura - that'll do.

MindiJo said...

Karen - Cory is going to LOVE that dip. I'm definitely going to make it this holiday season; thanks for sharing!

Cory said...

I would like it, and it sounds low fat too!

my favorite holiday recipes are the pumpkin raisin cookies, a cranberry almond biscotti, and a no-crust pumpkin pie. My second pan of the pumpkin-y goodness is in the oven right now. Mmmmm .. If you want the biscotti or pumpkin one, let me know and I'll email. :)

I Just posted these on my blog, but I copied them here too....

Raspberry Truffle:
1 c. whipping cream
1 tsp. raspberry oil (or extract - but you have to add it to the milk before the chocolate)
4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided)

Bring cream to a boil. Add raspberry flavoring and stir. Add 2 c. chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Chill in refrigerator. Roll into 1 in balls and chill for 1 hour. Melt remaining chocolate chips in double boiler and coat each ball in chocolate. Refrigerate, serve once hardened. Store in refrigerator.
