    Thanks for the buckeyes recipe Prancer. My son is addicted to these, I order them every Christmas for him. Now we get to make them instead...

    I'm baked out today, I've made cranberry walnut cookies, heath bar cookies, a chocolate chip cake, and just made a batch of these: http://www.ghirardelli.com/bake/recipe.aspx?id=1184

    2 parties today - one a cookie party and the other a 41st birthday.

    My kitchen would put a diabetic into a coma.

    I don't think anyone who dislikes Sandra Lee necessarily has an issue with the idea of semi-homemade cooking in general. However, SL's tendency to create recipes that have about 3000 milligrams of sodium apiece, are occasionally offensive (Kwanzaa cake!), and frequently are either more time-consuming or expensive than just doing it from scratch creates a lot of mocking and hate. She's doing it wrong.

    Plus, her tablescapes are fugly and her cocktail time is hilarious.

    On a separate note, 'begging the question' has nothing to do with asking a question.

    OK, fine, we can't beg the question. But can we bake it and how many ingredients will we need?

    Exactly--she makes certain things much harder than they need to be (like adding flavoring to vanilla frosting, instead of just buying the correct flavor.)

    I made a perfect example of a semi-ho recipe today, and it's not from Ms. Lee.

    Sweet corn cake: 1/4 cup of water, 1/4 cup of melted butter, one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix, 1 can of creamed corn. Mix it all up, throw it in a 9x5 loaf pan, cook at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Scoop out with ice cream scoop when ready to eat. So easy and good!

    I just had a logic class in which we learned about begging the question. And I thought that class would never be of any use to me in life.

    I don't have a conventional oven in my new place, but I do have a microwave, a slow cooker, an electric roasting pan and an electric burner.

    Does anyone know of any baking recipes I could try?

    Skateboy -- There are some good microwave peanut brittle recipes out there, and Better Homes & Gardens has some slow-cooker desert recipes, including a cheesecake -- but I haven't tried them.

    (They are known for testing their recipes pretty thoroughly, though.)
