Ok, so I'm a week late. That's just me! I eventually get it done. Hahaha! On Friday the 14th, Bunny Cates requested that we post a favorite recipe on our blogs and add a link for it on her blog. My new favorite is a wonderful, meaty, chili recipe my daughter, Rachel, and I made. Here's the recipe for you to try:
3 lbs lean ground beef
1 1/2 Cups tomato juice
2 med onions chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
1/4 Cup chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (more or less)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 regular cans of light red kidney beans
Cook ground beef in a Dutch Oven over med-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and return to pot. Add all ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add grated cheddar cheese to top of each bowl. Good with cornbread or as dip with crackers.
There you go, Bunny! Sorry I'm late! Hmmmmm......just noticed.....she's not on my blog list. I guess I always get to her site from Kim's. I'll have to get her added!
Well, doggone it! I just noticed it was supposed to be a dessert recipe. I'll add that one later. Gotta run for now!
*update* Ok, here's the REAL favorite recipe. (stupid me!) And it's a dessert! Mwahahaha! This was made by my ex-MIL (who still loves me) every holiday. It's called Paris Puffins.
1/3 cup soft shortening (or margarine)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup mik
1/3 cup butter (or margarine) melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg together then add to shortening mixture adding alternately with milk. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 minutes. Immediately roll in melted butter, then in a mixture of the last sugar and cinnamon. Serve hot or cold!
