Question by plumdumplings: Anyone have any Rival Crockette (1 quart crockpot) main course recipes?
I’ve been able to find about 5 recipes online.
I’ve been tempted to just quarter full size crockpot recipes, but I know it’s all about the proportions of liquid/solid, so I doubt it’s that easy. Looking for main dishes only. Thanks!
Sorry about the double post – first time I did it I got the message YA was down, so I did it again and lo and behold – posted twice.

Question by CMc: I need to make a chocolate dessert, but have limited ingredients. Any suggestions and recipes?
I have, to name a few, semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, bit of raisins, bit of slivered almonds. I also only have about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of white flour, but a bit of whole wheat and dark rye flour. Any chocolate recipes for me?
I have a bit of Cool Whip, and I also have some buttermilk. I don’t, unfortunately, have cream cheese.
Answer by Mountian_Baby
Do you happen to have any cream cheese, and possibly cool whip or heavy whipping cream?
You could melt the chips and beat them in the cream cheese mix. Then fold in coolwhip or whipped heavy cream.
If you don’t have anything to make a crusts out of then you can just spoon it into small cup or put it in a ziplock baggie and snip the end off and pipe into cups.
What else do you have, you said to name a few. Give us more….
What do you think? Answer below!

oven with stone bricks above the heat source an electric deck oven a conveyor belt oven or in the case of more expensive restaurants a wood or coal fired brick oven On deck ovens the pizza can be slid into the oven on a long paddle called a peel and baked directly on the hot bricks or baked on a screen a round metal grate typically aluminum When making pizza at home it can be baked on a pizza stone in a regular oven to imitate the effect of a brick oven Another option is grilled pizza in which the crust is baked directly on a barbecue grill Greek pizza like Chicago style pizza is baked in a pan

nor anchovies Sicilian pizza in the United States is typically a different variety of product made with a thick crust characterized by a rectangular shape and topped with tomato sauce cheese and optional toppings Pizza Hut s Sicilian Pizza introduced in 1994 is not an authentic example of the style as only garlic basil and oregano are mixed into the crust br White pizza pizza bianca omits the

drizzled with olive oil and spices like fresh basil and garlic In Rome the term pizza bianca refers to a type of bread topped with olive oil salt and occasionally rosemary sprigs It is also a Roman style to bottom the white pizza with figs the result being known as pizza e fichi pizza with figs br Ripieno or calzone is a turnover style pizza filled with several ingredients such as ricotta salami and mozzarella and folded over to form a half circle before being baked In Italian calzone literally means large sock while the word ripieno actually means just filling and does not by itself imply a form of pizza br Non Italian types of pizza br In the 20th century pizza has become an international food with widely varying toppings These pizzas consist of the same basic design but include an exceptionally diverse choice of ingredients br Pizza in Australia br The usual Italian varieties are available but there is also the Australian or australiana which has the usual tomato sauce base and mozzarella cheese with bacon and egg seen as quintessentially Australian breakfast fare Prawns are also sometimes used on this style of pizza br In the 1980s Australian pizza shops and restaurants

some bearing only a casual resemblance to the Italian original Both thick and thin crust are popular br Cooked from frozen pizza topped with cheese and tomato sauce br Frozen and ready to bake pizzas br Pizza is available frozen Food technologists have developed ways to overcome challenges such as preventing the sauce from combining with the dough and producing a crust that can be frozen and reheated without becoming rigid Modified corn starch is commonly used as a moisture barrier between the sauce and crust Traditionally the dough is pre baked and other ingredients are also sometimes

for the high salt content of some of their meals which were found to contain more than twice the daily recommended amount of salt for an adult br European nutrition research on the eating habits of people with cancer of the mouth oesophagus throat or colon showed those who ate pizza at least once a week had less chance of developing cancer they found Dr Silvano Gallus of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmaceutical Research in Milan who led the research said We knew that tomato sauce could offer protection against certain tumors but we did not expect pizza as a complete meal also to offer such protective powers Nicola O Connor of Cancer Research UK told BBC News Online This study is interesting and the results should probably be looked at in the context of what we already know about the Mediterranean diet and its association with a lower risk of certain types of cancer br The secret is probably lycopene an antioxidant chemical in tomatoes which is thought to offer some protection against cancer and which gives the fruit its red color br But before people start dialing the local pizza takeaway they should consider that some pizzas can be high in saturated fat salt and calories In contrast to the classic Italian pizza used in the research most UK pizza takeaway varieties are often loaded with high fat cheeses and fatty meats a high intake of which can contribute
