Potato chip shorties
( Christina Tosi recipe from Milk Bar All About Cookies cookbook)
- Granulated sugar for rolling.
2 – Lightly Beaten Eggs
2 – 15oz Can of Creamed Corn
2 – 15oz Can of Whole Sweet Corn (Drained)
2 – 8.5oz boxes of Corn Muffin Mix
1 Cup Sour Cream
8 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
SHERPA CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Yield: about 50 cookies2 cupswalnut or pecan halves or pieces 1/2 cup
(1 stick) plus 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts on a baking sheet. Toast until fragrant, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove nuts; turn off the oven.
2. Measure 1 cup of nuts into a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon butter. When butter melts, coarsely chop the nuts. Let cool, then cover and set aside.
3. When the remaining 1 cup of nuts have cooled completely, transfer to a food processor. Grind until fine, almost powdery. Dump onto a paper towel and let sit until dry, preferably overnight.
4. Melt the remaining 1/2 cup plus 6 tablespoons butter in a saucepan or in the microwave. Let cool slightly.
5. Combine brown and granulated sugars, eggs, vanilla and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Stir with a whisk or a fork until smooth. Let sit for several minutes, then stir again. Let sit again, then stir for a third time. (This process results in a mixture that has an icing-like texture and produces cookies with chewier centers.)
6. Place ground nuts, flour, salt and baking soda in a large mixing bowl; combine with a fork until nuts are well distributed. Make sure nuts do not clump.
7. Stirring with a fork, slowly add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture just until blended. Do not overmix. Mix in chocolate chips, then chopped nuts.
8. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour or as long as overnight. (Chilling makes the dough easier to manage and reduces spreading.)
9. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two or three cookie sheets with nonstick aluminum foil. Using a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheets, placing them about 2 inches apart.
10. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 11 to 14 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown at the edges. Let cookies cool on the sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
Note: To minimize spreading, let the cookie sheets cool completely between batches.

Crazy Cold Weather Bolognese
From Good Enough: A Cookbook by Leanne Brown – On Jennifer and Wendy 1/11/22
TL;DR: Brown beef and pork, combine with chopped vegetables, and cook for 20 minutes.
Deglaze pan, add remaining sauce ingredients, and cook for 45 minutes more.
As the sauce cooks, boil pasta, grate cheese, and chop parsley for serving.
4 tablespoons (½ stick) butter
1 pound ground beef (preferably 80% lean,
20% fat; see note,
1 pound ground pork (preferably 80% lean,
20% fat; see note,
1 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus extra as needed
2 small red onions, diced
1 large carrot, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 bell pepper (any color), stemmed, seeded, and diced
½ cup dry white wine
6 tablespoons (3 ounces) tomato paste
1 can (28 ounces) crushed or diced tomatoes
1 cup whole milk
1 parmesan rind (see note, page 183)
1 pound pasta of your choice, such as tagliatelle (traditional) or orecchiette (pictured)
Grated parmesan, for serving
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for serving
Note: I make a lighter, warm-weather version of this by substituting finely chopped cauliflower for half the meat; I add the cauliflower with the other vegetables in Step 2. It is still lovely and hearty without sitting quite so heavily in your tummy.
Note: The parmesan rind adds salty richness to the sauce. If you don’t have one, just add 1 extra teaspoon of salt in Step 4.
1. Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. If it begins to brown, that is just fine, but make sure it doesn’t burn. Add the beef, pork, and 1 teaspoon of salt and break up the meat with a wooden spoon. Let the meat cook, stirring occasionally, until it is no longer pink and has plenty of dark brown bits, 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Add the onions, carrot, celery, and bell pepper to the browned meat and stir. Place a tight lid on top and let the vegetables sweat, stirring occasionally, until they cook down about halfway in volume and your kitchen smells incredibly savory, about 20 minutes.
3. At this point you will probably have some dark brown sticky bits on the bottom of the pan. This is good! Pour in the white wine and stir to gently lift the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Cook until the mixture dries out a bit, a few minutes more.
Note: The white wine deglazes the pan, meaning it gets the delicious brown bits into the sauce instead of letting them burn.
4. Add the tomato paste, mix it up with everything, and leave it until it loses its bright red uncooked color, a couple of minutes. Then add the canned tomatoes, milk, and parmesan rind—which will add a lot of savory saltiness! Stir it all together and put the lid on, just a little askew so a small amount of steam can escape. Turn down the heat to low and gently simmer for about 45 minutes.
5. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to the package instructions, but take it off the heat a minute or so before it reaches al dente. That way the pasta will cook through in the sauce, drinking in a little more of the bolognese flavor. Drain the pasta and taste the sauce; add more salt, if needed. Add the pasta to the sauce and cook until it is al dente and totally covered in sauce, a minute or so.
6. Remove the parmesan rind and serve the pasta and sauce in bowls, topped with grated parmesan and chopped parsley. Any leftovers will keep in a sealed container for a week in the fridge.
Fast White Bean, Chorizo, and Hearty Greens Stew
From Good Enough: A Cookbook by Leanne Brown – On Jennifer & Wendy 1/11/22
2 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, chopped
1 bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
1 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus extra as needed
5 ounces fresh chorizo or other sausage, casing removed
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 cans (15½ ounces each) white beans or chickpeas
Handfuls of hearty greens, such as spinach, kale, chard, or collards
Farro, pasta, rice, or hearty bread, for serving
1. Melt the butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, bell pepper, and ½ teaspoon of the salt to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.
2. Add the chorizo and tomato paste, using a wooden spoon to break up the chorizo. Cook until the chorizo is cooked through and beginning to brown, another 3 minutes. Then add the beans, 1½ cups of water, and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt. Put a lid on the pot and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
3. Taste the stew and add more salt if you think it needs it. Squish a few of the beans with the back of the spoon to thicken the broth. Turn off the heat, add the greens, and stir them into the stew until wilted.
4. Dollop the stew into bowls over farro, pasta, or rice, or serve with bread for dunking.

Condensed Milk Bread
From Jennifer, insanelygoodrecipes.com, Check out how Jennifer’s batch came out!
- In a bowl, stir the milk, condensed milk, egg, sugar, and yeast until combined.
- Add the flour and salt and mix until a dough is formed.
- Mix in the softened butter until combined. Use your hands to incorporate the butter into the dough easier.
- Lightly dust a flat clean surface with flour. Knead the dough on the surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. The dough is ready when it doesn’t tear when stretched.
- Grease a large bowl with oil. Place the dough in the bowl and cover it with a dry cloth. Let it rest for 1 hour in a warm place, or until the dough has doubled in size.
- Punch the dough with your fist to deflate it. Using a knife, split the dough in two.
- Place the first half of the dough on a floured surface and flatten it out with a rolling pin. Roll it up tightly and seal the edges by crimping them with your fingers. Slice the rolled dough into 7 equal pieces. Repeat the step with the other half of the dough.
- Place the dough slices in two 7×4 pans lined with parchment paper. Cover with a dry cloth and let it rest in a warm place for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, make an egg wash by whisking together egg and milk.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush the dough slices with egg wash and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
- To make the glaze, stir butter and condensed milk until well-combined.
- Let the bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes and brush with glaze. Serve warm.

Cook time: 8 Hr Prep time: 10 Min Serves: 4 – 6
Ingredients1 pkg frozen egg noodles, 24 ounce. ALVIN. I use about one and a half cups uncooked Schnucks Culinaria wide noodles.
2 can(s) cream of chicken soup, 14.7 oz each; sometimes I use 1 can chicken and 1 can cream of celery
1 stick (1/2) cup butter – cut into pieces
1 can(s) chicken broth, 32 oz; may want extra to thin out if too thick.Mixed vegetables, optional; I dont use
1 tsp Better Than Bullion, optional; I add for a richer chicken flavor
6 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 4 large
salt & pepper, to taste; can add some parsley too if desired
1. Salt & pepper chicken breasts.
2. Place in the bottom of Crock Pot.
3. Spoon soup over the chicken.
4. Cut butter into several pats and place pieces evenly over soup.
5. Whisk the bouillon with the broth.
6. Pour over soup.
7. Place lid on the Crock Pot and turn to low. Cook for 6 hours.
8. Remove chicken and tear into pieces.
9. Add back to pot.
10. Now add noodles; if adding veggies add now. Cook for another 2 hours or until noodles are desired tenderness. I stir a few times during last 2 hours. (You may want to add more broth to thin out at the end of cooking, as the homemade noodles thicken the broth, which we like.)
