Weekend Cooking

The weekend has rolled by again and it's time to feed the Termites. I've discovered a few more blogs and will mention those in a moment. I made some cookies today for the boys. They were very simple. I found the recipe over at Lisa and Sarah's blog (see yesterday's post). These cookies are Custard Shortbreads. They melt away in your mouth. All this cooking is not doing my Weight Watchers ways any justice.

The other recipe I made today was No Bake Chocolate Cakes. It was in the Cupcakes, Cheesecakes & Cookies book. This is an easy recipe not requiring many ingredients at all:

5 x 60g Mars bars
50g butter
3-1/2 cups (120g) Rice Bubbles
200g milk eating chocolate, melted

Line a 12 hole standard muffin pan with paper cases.

Chop four of the Mars bars coarsely; cut remaining bar into slices.

Place chopped Mars bars in medium saucepan with butter; stir over low hear until smooth. Stir in Rice Bubbles.

Press mixture into cases, spread with chocolate; top with sliced Mars bar. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set.

Now for some blog sites. I've only just started exploring these as I came across a few last night. Check out Abby's Sweets and also Tempered Woman. I also have to add to the list My Baking Adventures, Gimme Some Oven, Megan's Cookin',

More cooking will happen tomorrow as I'm rostered on at work for morning tea; me and the other two support class teachers. We're first up so we shall set the bar high for those who follow.

Tonight I aim to start making the backing for my niece's and nephew's quilts. Will endeavour to get a photo of these up tomorrow. (Didn't happen!!)
