Buffalo Chicken Dip

Here's another recipe I found in the coupon section of my Sunday paper. This one I managed to cut out! I mixed it up today, ready to pop in the oven and enjoy this weekend.

Frank's RedHot Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup any flavor FRANK'S® REDHOT® Sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cans (9.75 oz. each) SWANSON® White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
  1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Place cream cheese into deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.
  2. MIX in salad dressing, Frank's RedHot Sauce and cheese. Stir in chicken.
  3. BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables.

I mixed everything in a mixing bowl and then put it into the baking dish. Also, I used a pint of chicken that my mom canned and gave me.

Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I found this recipe in the coupon section of the Sunday paper. It really looks good! And then today, I'm cutting out coupons only to turn the page and find that I cut right through the recipe. Why do they have to put recipes on the back of coupons? (or is that coupons on the back of recipes?)

I thought maybe I could visit the website and find the recipe, but no such luck - so I had to piece it back together and type it up myself. These sound so good I'm sure it was worth it, though.

Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Combine flour, sugar, and corn starch in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press into a greased 13x9-inch pan.
  2. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned.
  3. Beat eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips. Pour over crust. Return to oven.
  4. Bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until mixture is golden. Cool on wire rack and cut into bars.

Makes 24 bars

Here's the list of dessert and baked goods recipes I did find on the website. Some of them look pretty good, too.

I found this recipe once a long time ago. I made the cake. It was wonderful. Then I lost the recipe I knew I had a recipe for this hot, gooey, chocolaty dessert, but I could not find it. After lots of looking, I found it! Now, I plan to keep this recipe somewhere safe and accessible.

This cake is quick, easy, and absolutely yummy. And since I didn't make anything for dessert this weekend, I think I'll make one of these!

Free 2010 Calendar

Pillsbury is offering a Free 2010 Calendar to new email subscribers to their Pillsbury or Cooking 4 Two newsletters. I've been subscribed to the Pillsbury newsletter for a while but hadn't tried the Cooking 4 Two newsletter, so I was eligible for my free calendar. Just put your email address into the box at the top and click the 'Check Member Status' button to see if you're eligible.

It's hard to believe, but I think the Cooking 4 Two newsletter is going to come in really handy. It promises delicious recipes just for two, tips for scaling down your favorite recipes, and much more! I pretty much cook for 3 of us nowadays, but since one of us is a teenage boy, it's like cooking for more! But, once he goes away to college or moves out, which won't really be that long now, I am going to need to rethink my cooking practices - because there will only be the two of us.

While I was on the site signing up for my calendar, I logged in and grabbed a few recipes and saved them to my 'Recipe Box' because signing up for one of the newsletters also gives you full access to the Pillsbury.com website where you can find and save all kinds of yummy-looking recipes. I am definitely going to have to try these Cranberry Orange-Glazed Cinnamon Rolls. Don't they look yummy?
