Well.... I only recieved recipes from two people for two months, so I am thinking that there just isn't any more interest in this swap. We can try again next year if anyone wants to????

Schnookie, I think the interest is there.. I think we just all got busy.... can we still send in some recipe or would you like to call it quits for the year....

Too busy is it! And I feel really bad about not getting recipes together for this, because I truly do like what we got started with!! Maybe we could start up again in January? If Schnookie is willing to do a few more months' worth?

You know I had an idea for next year, something a bit different. I was wondering about swapping recipe post cards. What Im thinking is get postcards from your area or places you go etc and glue them to a blank stationary note card (you can buy cheap blank notecards in craft stores like joannes) then inside write the recipe, (or print it out and glue it in. Write the recipe title on the front and whallah, we would recieve a recipe in a pretty note card unique to each of our friends/swappers. Would me doing just one recipe per swap - what do people think? Do I make any sense?

With regards to the holiday ones, maybe we could pop some into the holiday recipe section on here? Save Schnookie having to do any work coallating at this time of year, what do you think?

Schook, I am a real loser. I have just been busy with sewing and it's not even a Christmas project. It's for a baby shower. I didn't plan to make a quilt, so didn't start it until the weekend after Thanksgiving. This is for a 2nd baby, so they had planned a shower after the baby was born which is a planned C-section on January 12. Well, they decided because lots of relatives will be in town on Christmas weekend, the shower is now on the 26th. That means at least a month earlier than planned. DD keeps saying they will understand that you are making a quilt and aren't done yet, but .....okay I am really insecure and arrogant at the same time and love the attention and ooh and aaahs when the gift is opened. I admit it.

Schnook, I'll get the recipes together tonight.

I just concocted a cookie recipe for holiday cookies, just waiting for experiment batch #2 to cool to taste then if thats ok too I will do the recipe, trying two different versions one wiht cranberries and pumpkin pie spice adn one with peppermint essence and cherries (hmmm you could use crushed candy canes come to think of it) the spice batch is delicous, just kind of puffs open and then melts in your mouth, fingers crossed for the peppermint ones! They smell good!!

Well I really to think we get pretty busy around this time of year...I am very guilty of that myself...so with that in mind we can put this off until January when everything seems to settle down a little. And a post card swap sounds like fun too. yummo I love cranberries and pumpkin spices...sounds mighty good to me! Thumbup

MELT IN YOUR MOUTH FUDGE....by Laura (aka Mamu)

1 pkg semi-sweet choc chips
1 cube butter
2 eggs
3 cups powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional...can use any type nuts, raisins, marshmallows, candied fruit, anything you think might taste good)

In mixing bowl, beat eggs...add powder sugar, beat.... add vanilla, beat.
Put choc-chips and butter in microwaveable dish...melt together...stir making sure all chips are melted. Add to powder sugar mixture and beat together, add nuts. Pour into lightly greased pan (I spray mine with Pam spray). Allow to set up for about 3 hrs. ENJOY!!

*** I have made this with Peanut Butter chips, White Choc-Chips w/peppermint candies ... all work out very nicely

Am I reading this right. raw eggs in fudge???

I'm sorry but I'd rather do them on here, postage is a problem for me, plus post cards etc. Must conserve every dime around here, with our expensive medications we are on, haven't sent Christmas cards for the last two years, so I'll just join what ever you have on here. Postage is supposed to be going up again too. lovehearts Norma

Oh, thank you so much for posting this recipe! You're the greatest! Thumbup

I think the raw eggs get tempered with the melted chocolate, I know that candy makers all over do that. Mosetly to make the chocolate smooth and creamy. Although I haven't put eggs into my fudge before I am sure it is safe, I would first wash the outside of the egg before cracking it open, just an add caution. Oh, I cannot wait to try this one, it looks like it will be an easy recipe....Thank you again Mamu

I think you can buy pasturized eggs. If you are concerned about any bacteria associated with raw eggs. Buying pasturized eggs would work.

Joan, I would have to try that if I made them, no raw eggs, fish or meat on my table. You should have seen the prime rib they tried to feed every one at Dons Christmas party, No one touched it either, we wouldn't even let them put it on our plates, the blood mixed in everything on the others food!!! We want everything done at our house thank goodness, or every one that wanted anything different would be cooking their own. IMO, that is not healthy eating. Sorry ladies, don't mean to start anything, I just get up set seeing so much food wasted like that, and worry about the people that do eat it. Don't mind seeing it in the meat counter like that but on a plate in front of some one just about does me in!! Thud Norma
