Fondant outer rock,color like marble or rock, then shape into hollow geode. For the crystalized part, you just make a sugar water solution. We used 1 c. of water and 2 c. white sugar. Cook it in a small pot until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add in any coloring you would like to use. If you are doing different colors, divide them out first. Pour the sugar water into the hollow of the rock part. Wrap with foil, let sit about 3 days, carefully unwrap and pour out excess sugar water.
Foolproof 2-minute Hollandaise. Did it in the Magic Bullet! Couldn't drizzle, but poured in the butter in small increments (4-5?). Emulsified nicely. Also added 1 tsp of Dijon mustard at the beginning.
This was voted the #1 Casserole for the year at Taste Of Home - Cheesy enchilada casserole---sometimes I use a can of cheese soup instead of part of the shredded cheese. I also save the sour cream for a topping! I like the cold dollops of sour cream on top, with some salsa and fresh chopped veggies. I also substitute corn chips in the casserole ... gives it a bit of a different taste and texture. Yum!
Quick Cobbler Two 12-oz bags frozen mixed berries or peach slices 1 box white cake mix (no pudding) (try sugar-free) 1 can of diet 7-up (clear soda) Place frozen fruit in a 9x13 baking dish. Add dry cake mix on top. Pour soda slowly over cake mix. DO NOT stir the cake mix and the soda - this will give you a 'crust'. (If you stir the two, you will have a cake like topping.) Bake 350 for 45 to 50 min. You may be able to use other frozen fruit, I think blueberry would be yummy!
