I have not been here long but so far this recipe of Rainee's is my favorite.


Yield: 16 servings
2 cans (8 oz each) refrigerated quick crescent dinner rolls
1 cup Powdered sugar
3 tbsp Butter or margarine, softened
1 tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
3 tbsp Finely chopped pecans
CHOCOLATE GLAZE (recipe follows)
2 tbsp Butter or margarine
2 tbsp HERSHEY'S Cocoa
2 tbsp Water
1 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 Heat oven to 375F. Separate crescent dough into 16 triangles.
2 Beat butter in small bowl until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until well blended. Beat in milk and vanilla. Add cocoa; beat well. Stir in pecans.
3 Spread slightly heaping teaspoon chocolate mixture on each triangle within 1/2 inch of edges. Roll up; start at shortest side of triangle and roll to opposite point. Press all edges to seal completely. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet; curve slightly to form crescents.
4 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool to room temperature. Drizzle CHOCOLATE GLAZE over top of crescents. 16 crescents.
6 Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat; add cocoa andwater, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Do not boil. Remove from heat; gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating with whisk until smooth. Add additional water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. About 3/4 cup glaze

Every recipe from here has been good, but the one I use most often is Goodweed's Pancakes.

...and that's the way it is in northern Minnesota.

A lot of you have already heard me sing the praises of BarbarainNC's version of Bang Bang Shrimp. It is easily my all time favorite from DC -
I make it an average of 3 times a month. DH has taken to calling it "candy from the sea"!

Make the sauce : mix some Mayonnaise, Thai Sweet chili Sauce and Tuong ot Sriracha to taste. Peel 1 pound of shrimp, coat with dry cornstarch. Fry in a deepfat fryer until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Put the shrimp in a bowl and add the sauce, stir and enjoy!!!!! I made this tonight and they tasted like the real thing!!!! I ate the whole pound by myself!!!!! You can buy the sauces at Walmart in the Asian Section.

I'm all about the food!
