    I agree. The idea made my stomach roll when Paula Deen did it on an Xmas challenge on Iron Chef America, and it doesn't sound any better now.

    ^ re: Paula Deen's version, as I posted above, she didn't just make the fudge, she dipped it in caramel, white chocolate, and nuts.

    Believe me, you can't taste the cheese at all. It's very sweet and delicious. My friends and family always ask me to make it during the holidays.

You could even decorate them if you wanted to get really into it to make them look like ornaments or something! I think I may try this tonight.
    Last summer, when I was working in rural Latin America, three of us were assigned to make dinner for the whole group every week on a budget of approximately $20 (not too hard down there). But one of the girls had been raving about oreo balls forever and was absolutely dying to make them for our dinner - unfortunately, the only package of cream cheese we could find in the entire town was approximately $12, and no one knew how long it had been there for.

    Oreos, surprisingly, were fairly cheap.

    That sound similiar to this "recipe" I saw on The TODAY show: Snowman cupcake on a stick

    1. Take a pre-baked sheet of yellow cake and crumble it into a bowl.
    2. Take ready-made white cake icing from a can and mix it into the crumbled cake mixture until it becomes dough like.
    3. Take a scoop of the mixture and form it into a ball. Take another smaller scoop, form it into a ball and attach it to the first ball to form a snowman.
    4. Take a lollipop stick and stick it up the snowman *ss
    5. Dip the snowman into melted white chocolate. Let the coating dry.
    6. Decorate the snowman.

    Twenty-five years of living in Colorado and I've never seen anything like this. Are we sure it isn't from Utah? Or Iowa? Now if it involved soy milk, kosher marshmallows and creme fraiche I could maybe believe it came from around here.... (Do you know any other place where one of the choices for your latte is ....hemp milk?)

    Kind of reminds me of a lunch dish served in the school cafeteria when I was a kid in NY -- "California Meatballs". Of course, when I actually moved to California, the erstwhile California Meatballs were nowhere to be seen. Instead, we got the accurately named and rather disgusting "No Bake Cookie".

    And you'll never find French toast or French fries in France ... and California Rolls were invented in Vancouver.

    Another beverage recipe, this one from my son's German teacher, who makes it for her class every year. I've never had it, but apparently I am going to make it this year. My son says it's really good.

    Kinderglühwein Recipe

    prep time – 10 minutes to make and 1-2 hours waiting for the juice to get really hot

    Ingredients:
    Juicy Juice Berry - 64 oz
    Juicy Juice Grape - 64 oz
    1 or 2 medium oranges
    1 or 2 small lemons
    small piece of cheesecloth
    4-5 cinnamon sticks – see note below
    7-8 whole cloves – see note below
    340ml bottle of honey - add based on taste – see note below

    Pour the juice into the Crockpot. Turn the Crockpot on high. As soon as the juice is warm, add the spice packet, oranges, and lemons. Stir occasionally as the juice heats.

    Spice packet - put cinnamon sticks and whole cloves into a small piece of cheesecloth.

    Oranges and lemons - Peel the oranges and the lemons. Cut them in half and take out the seeds.

    When the juice is really hot, add some honey. Stir so that the honey melts into the juice. Taste and add more honey if it does not taste sweet enough. Serve hot with some German cookies!

    Notes:

    Add half a bottle of juice at a time, especially for the first batch so that it takes less time for it to get it really hot.

    I use 2 Crockpots in my classroom. During the day, I add more juice when the Crockpot is about 1/3 empty. That way the juice stays hot for every class. I taste it and add honey throughout the day.

    Some students don’t like a lot of cinnamon or cloves. Decrease the spices and taste once it is hot. Add an additional spice packet if necessary.

    Prancer - is juicy juice a brand? Is it just any berry juice and grape juice? That sounds yum!

    Juicy Juice is a brand. I'm not sure why she specified it, except that Son says she is very particular and I guess it tastes exactly the way she wants it to. The "berry" juice is actually a blend; I think the grape juice is just grape juice.

    It sounds awfully sweet to me, but I like to have something hot to drink on hand. Son says this is the children's version of an adult punch that has lots of alcohol in it. His teacher did not supply that recipe

    I'm also making white sangria, something else I've never made before. But I have a huge bottle of white wine here that is covered with dust and we are never going to drink it, so this will give me a way to get rid of it.

    I don't think I'd add the honey, because they fruit juice would be sweet enough, but I think it sounds good! Kind of like the apple one I make.

    Pass along the white sangria recipe too

    White Sangria

    3 cups dry white wine
    4 Tbs. sugar
    1/4 brandy
    1 12 oz. can of chilled lemon-lime soda OR ginger ale OR club soda (depending on how sweet you want it)
    1 cup frozen peaches
    1 cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
    1 medium lemon, sliced
    1 medium lime, sliced

    Mix wine and brandy. Stir in sugar until sugar dissolves. Add everything else. Serve.

    It doesn't say to let the fruit thaw, so I guess it's supposed to chill everything, but it seems to me that it wouldn't flavor the wine mix unless it was thawed and marinated for a while. Hmmmm. I'm also thinking that peach brandy might make it a little fruitier.

    I think I will put everything but the strawberries and soda together tomorrow, and let it set overnight, and then add the strawberries and soda an hour or two before I serve it.

    A la recherche du pain perdu

    Quote Originally Posted by Artemis@BC View Post

    Oh, yes you will!

    French toast is called pain perdu, meaning "lost bread."

    Dans certaines régions de France, comme le Périgord, ce mets est appelé « dorée »....

    La Normandie connaît une spécialité culinaire, le pain perdu à la normande ; c'est un pain perdu flambé avec du pommeau de Normandie et servi avec de la confiture de pommes.

    L'Anjou connaît une variante, le pain perdu au triple sec (combier ou cointreau).

    La Basse-Bretagne connaissait le boued laezh (nourriture de lait), c'est-à-dire du lait chauffé avec du pain.
    Translation:

    In certain regions of France, such as Périgord, this dish is called "golden bread."

    Normandy has its own special version, Norman French toast, which is French toast flamed with Norman pommel (an apple liqueur) and served with a marmalade of apples.

    Anjou has a variant, French toast flavored with triple sec (or Cointreau combier).

    Basse-Bretagne (Lower Brittany) has Boued laezh ("milk food"), i.e., milk heated with bread.
    As for French fries, they call them pommes frites or just frites. You will find them at just about any brasserie in Paris will serve up "steack frites" (steak and French fries) or "moules frites" (mussels and French fries) for lunch.

    Joyeux Noël, mes amis!
