New Toys, requests and more!

Finally received a new toy that I have been wanting for quite some time!

This kitchen aid 12 cup has 3 bowls - 12" 10" and 4". It also has an extra wide feed tube so most things will not need to be cut in half. Now I can pull all the food processor recipes that I had set aside in the event I actually got one! Woo!!

Tonight for dinner was a repeat recipe that we really enjoyed before. It has been some time since I made it. Cheesy rice casserole with sour cream and jalapeno's is presented below. It has a nice mix of flavors and is not overly hot. I served steamed veggies to go along with this dish.

I've gotten a few requests for the doggie biscuits so here is the recipe for that.

Peanut butter snaps
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup milk
2 cups whole wheat flour (can sub 1/2 cup of wheat germ)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together peanut butter and milk until smooth. Set aside

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Gently mix peanut butter-milk mixture into the dry ingredients
and mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and
knead lightly.

Roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thick and use small to medium cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 12-18 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cool on wire racks and store in the fridge or freezer.

  1. Hey, thanks for the recipe! My two pups will love them, I'm sure.

    What a great new toy! I really wish ours had more many times I'm in the middle of cooking, and need to use the darn thing three or four times. I mean, who wants to dishes during a cooking marathon?
