Quilt With Us


Recipes to Quilt By

Since we all love to quilt and quilting time is so valuable, I thought it would be nice to share quick and easy recipies that are tried and true. Less time in the kitchen means more time in the sewing room. Prerequisite: quick, easy and YUMMY!

Let's Help Each Other

If you're like me you need help around the house to make more time to quilt. One of my most dreaded chores is to come up with something for dinner. I hear this a lot when I'm with my friends so I know it's not just me. In this group we want to help each other to create more time to quilt so, the prerequisite will be quick and easy, tried and true recipies. You need to rememeber, Martha Stewart doesn't live here. I like some of the things she does, but let's be serious, her recipies are CRAZY. Lots of ingredients and 74 steps. We want EASY, QUICK but most of all YUMMY. Just imagine how happy the family will be after getting a good meal. I know when I feed my hubby a great meal I don't have any guilty feelings about spending several hours quilting, and he kinda leaves me alone. Now that's really the treat. Sooo......let's get started.
If we would all click on "start discussion" and copy/paste your recipe there, we will have them all in the same place and won't have to scroll thru tons of posts to find them.

Hi everyone - my sister said this was a fun site to read, even if you don't try the recipes.  She told me about a 5-minute chocolate cake-in-a-cup?  Has anyone tried that?  And has anyone tried a different flavor, other than chocolate?  I'm looking forward to trying recipes - quilters always have the best food at potlucks and sew-ins!  

ps - I already copied Aida's recipe for peanut butter balls.  They sound like something a friend's Mom used to make when I was much younger.

Marlene:  Welcome.  You should find all kinds of recipes already.  Click on "view all" and many are in catagories.  I've fixed a lot of them and they are YUMMY.  Take a minute to go thru them...you'll be surprised.

Here is the Peanut Butter Ball recipe which I got from my MIL - it was in her cookbook over 40 years old!

1 lb confectioners sugar, 1 jar crunchy peanut butter (18-26 oz), 1 stick butter softened, 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips. In a large bowl mix the sugar, peanut butter and butter until well blended together by hand (yes, use your hands - specially the grandkids').  Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for about an hour, then take a spoonful and form into balls.  Return balls to refrigerator to chill some more.  Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler.  Dip peanut butter ball half-way, then place on a wax paper or foil. Return the coated peanut butter balls in the refrigerator, serve when chocolate has hardened.

To make it less messy, I put the coated peanut butter balls in small candy paper cups.

Jennifer Evans put a recipe on the main page back on Nov. 27 for a Ham & Swiss casserole that is delicious. Tried it last night and it is really good. Check it out!

Pam, where is that recipe for your famous hot sauce. Need to try that one. Will it go with chicken wings?
