Headless Octopus Blues

The request had me curious. I've had squid (tastes like rubber bands) and found that once was enough for that curiousity. With the instructions on the Octopus Fritters as I found, my curiousity has already been satisfied. NO WAY!!! The CD that I have is made up of like 2700 cookbooks so I knew that Octopus would be inclusive. It's gonna be hard to sleep tonight and I can never watching "Finding Nemo" the same way. :shock: /rayt721

I've heard that squid (there is another less icky name - calmari) like some shellfish needs to be cooked either very very fast or for a long long time. Perhaps Octopus is the same? Have had it in sushi and...well...don't need to do that again soon. And I LOVE sushi!

(especially our Deadly one)

What I had in mind...

When I was in elementary school, I used to love the cookies they served that they called "Peanut Butter Fudgies." They were no-bake cookies and sickening sweet. :)

My Mom had gotten ahold of the school lunch staff to get the recipe but when I left home, I never got the recipe from her. She passed away a few years back. I did finally find the recipe on the Internet a while back.

So, the purpose of this thread was to see if maybe there were recipes like this that meant alot to you that you've lost (or even recipes that you never had but always wished you had).

If anything comes to mind, why not see if I (or others) can help? I thought it would be nice to have a thread for finding and sharing your "In Search Of...." recipes in one convenient area.

Hey Ray...do they have mini marshmallows in them? I make some that we call Peanut butter fudge. I just toss about a cup of Jif and a cup of chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute, stir until all is mixed nicely and then toss in a small bag of mini marshmallows...coloured or white...your choice. Spread in a 9x9 and chill until set.
