While I was cleaning out a kitchen cabinet - I came across a little gem hidden way at the back of the cabinet. Somehow this little item must have gotten shoved back there, and well.....I guess I hadn't removed everything for a long time!!!!
I have no recollection of receiving this little 64 page cook book. I was thumbing through it, and boy is there a lot quick and easy recipes. Cheap too!
I remember back in the day (late teens) I used to have a thing making the blue berry muffins. I had my first apartment - and that is what all my friends wanted on Friday night while watching Nightmare Theater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
I did find a couple recipes I thought I would share.
JIFFY CHOCOLATE FUDGE
1 pkg. Fudge frosting mix
6 tsp. hot water
1/4 C chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Generously butter a 5 x 9 loaf pan
Blend frosting mix and hot water in a microwave safe bowl and cover with a paper plate. Microwave on high for 3 1/2 minutes Remove and test with candy thermometer to 240*. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla and mix well. Pour in prepared pan. Cool completely and cut into squares. 16 pieces.
Quick and easy recipe for a small batch of yum!
MEXICAN CORN PIZZA
1 pkg. corn muffin mix
1/4 C flour
1/4 C milk
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 an chili without beans
2 C shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven 400*. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
Combine muffin mix, flour, egg, chili powder together and blend well. On floured surface knead dough 10-15 times until dough is easy to handle. Press into bottom of prepared pan. Spread chili over the crust and top with the cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes. remove from oven and cut into squares. Let it set for about 10 minutes before serving.
I will definitely be trying this one. Sounds tasty and very easy. This would be good with a salad and company!
1 C baking mix
1/4 C +1 Tbsp. milk
Beat all ingredients together until smooth. Prepare your choice of meats and/or vegetables. Dip veggies or meat into batter and let excess drain. Drop carefully into 400* oil and cook until golden brown. If batter gets too thick add milk a little at a time.
This is a nice way to give a good solid breading on food items.
I often just dip in egg and then flour/panko/cornmeal - but this will give a much better and uniform coating!
There you go - a couple easy and inexpensive recipes.
If interested in getting a recipe book of your own, maybe try vising their website at http://www.jiffymix.com. They also listed a phone of 734 - 475 - 1361 (in Chelsea, Michigan)
I don't know if they still have these available - but it may be worth a try.
It really is a fun little book - I think now that I have FOUND it - I will use it!!!!
Have a great day!
