You are sure welcome, a lot of folks have never heard of, let alone tried, chocolate gravy, it is great with fresh hot buttermilk biscuits. I have not seen a single person who didn't like it after they tried it.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


As promised Deb's amazing pb and choc chip cookies good enough to stop or produce tears.

about 32 cookies

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine (Deb uses parkay squares. I've never bought margarine, but if its good enough for Deb
than its good enough for me.)
1 egg
1/2 cup chunky (or plain) peanut butter
3/4 cup whole wheat flour ( Can. flours are possibly denser. I will research if there is a diff, so you can adjust
accordingly
3/4 cup oatmeal ( small flake or quick)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup choc chipits

Mix all ingredients until combined.
Add chipits at the end. Mix in
Bake Tbsp size cookies @350 for 13 minutes

Thanks Jan!

*thinks to herself* "Hmm. It makes 32 cookies. I wonder if that's before or after I've eaten half of the dough".

I have a question too. In the U.S., we have chocolate chips, but are they the same as what the recipe calls 'chocolate chipits'?

Why thats after of course Barb ( if you leave out the B in the tbsp sized cookies, then you will still yield 32 )

Chipits is just the popular name brand ..made by Hersey. Sorry I just assumed thats what everybody used. Maybe you have Nestle. But yes just normal chocolate chips. Deb didn't specify semi-sweet or milk. You could probably guess better than I, but I will try to remember to ask her.

It's a little-known fact that it is only the baked cookies that have calories. The dough does not.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

If you get a chance, look for the Ghiradelli chocolate chips at the store. They sell them in a big bag at Sam's Club too. They are goooood.

We have Hershey's choc. chips here, but they must put different wording on the bags they send to Canada. But I'll have to look the next time I'm at the store, maybe they have changed it here.

I think 'chipits' sounds more cheerful. No wonder Canadians are happier than Americans, you guys have nicer words on your food packaging.

It could also be that and the alcohol content in your beer is higher.

You are right Barb. I feel happy just looking at the bag. The lack of calories in cookie dough must be the reason they put it in ice cream. So you can have twice as much

I've never heard of Ghiradelli chips before. But this means nothing. I live in a small box. Never been to Sams Club either. All 6 of those stores packed up and headed south years ago.

The US based Target just bought out our Zellers chain, so they should arrive soon. If they are anything like Costco they won't be seeing my paper that has a picture of Liz on the face. Everyone else I know loves that place, but I don't need to spend a small fortune on a life time supply of bathroom tissue or a second house to store it all in.

My local grocer has timely specials.
My daughter is trying to talk me into driving her to Michigan to visit her friend. I will stop in with a few cases of Molson Canadian for you.

Nope! Never saw that packaging on the choc. chips. But what shopper could resist a package with a happy cookie face like that on it?

What part of Michigan does your daughters' friend live?

Barb :

The chips are semi sweet and not the sweet kind.

My daughters friend is near Battle Creek

Battle Creek? That's also known as Cereal City, where Kellogg's makes a lot of their cereals. They used to do tours, but I'm not sure if they still do.

If you go in the summer, check out the Binder Park Zoo. It's pretty nice.

Also, I hear the Kalamazoo Air Zoo is awesome.

I'm a couple hours or so north of there, so if you're up this way let me know.

Is that about a 7 hour drive from Toronto?

Yes Barb about 6 or 7 hours.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


We tried something new to us on the smoker tonight. On the BBQ forum they call them a fatty and I can see why. They are really good but really rich so we couldn't eat much. I tried something new to us on the smoker, they call it a fattie and I can see why.

You can make it many different ways but I made this one like this. 1 Pound of hot country sausage, just a dusting of rub, 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of cheddar cheese, 3 slices of provolone cheese, 3 scrambled eggs and a good hand full of raw spinach and a few jalapenos, smoke for 3 hours at 250.

That looks d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s !!! Thanks for the pics Jim.

I don't have a smoker, is there another way to make it? I'm sure it wouldn't have the same flavor if it's done any other way though.

Barb if you have a propane grill you can smoke it on one of them, just turn the fire off on one end and get the temps down to 250. Smoke it on the top rack, for smoke wrap some hardwood chunks like hickory, apple, or peacan in aluminum foil and place on your burner, let the grill heat up and get the chunks smoking then put the fattie on, you will want the interior temps of the meat to hit at least 160 even higher won't hurt it, it is very forgiving. There are many different ways to make these, the next one will be a pizza fattie.

Here is a link that will tell you all you could ever want to know about smoking a fattie.
