Let's share recipes..
If we get enough we can put together: Cody's Cookbook!

Who's going to be the first to post one?

I'm going to post my blue cheese ranch dressing recipe that i make all the time..  Note that i'm not normally a huge fan of blue cheese but I love this.  It lasts months in the fridge but i usually make a lot and freeze in small containers.

I don't have exact quantities for the ingredients beyond the core ingredients, so you'll have to experiment.  I tend to make mine very acidic and just use a little on my salads, but you could cut down on the lemon and vinegar and use more of it.

Mouser's Blue Cheese Ranch Dressing

* 1 cup plain yoghurt
* 1 cup mayonaise
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1+ cup buttermilk
* 16-32 oz blue cheese (i usually use gorgonzolla)
* 2-5 large bunches of cilantro, stems and all
* Lemon juice (i probably overdo this and add multiple cups of this.. you might try 1-4 cups)
* Vinegar (again i probably overdo this, try 1-3 cups).
* Wasabi paste (I use this brand) -- i probably put in 2 oz of this.
* Lots of garlic (try a couple of cloves)
* Lots of ground pepper
* Cayenne pepper and Habanero sauce
* Salt
If you try it let me know!

How many recipes do we need before we can put up a respectable downloadable pdf cookbook?

  Well I never thought I'd ever post this online, but....  This is a recipe that I invented about 5 years or so ago.  It took me many batches (experiments) to get it just right, but I finally did it.  These are so good too, everyone that's ever tried them thought they'd died and gone to heaven.   :D  My mom and dad EXPECT me to bring them a batch every time I come to visit.  Geeze, talk about spoiled parents.   ;D  Anyhow, here it is:

Ken's Diet Oatmeal Cookies


1 Cup Margarine or Butter, softened (I microwave to melt.)
1 Cup Brown Sugar Substitute (Splenda)*
1 Cup Splenda Sugar Substitute
2 Eggs
1-1/2 Tsp Vanilla
1-1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour **
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1-1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnimon
1/2 Tsp Salt (Optional)
3 Cups Oatmeal (Quick or Old Fashioned, Uncooked)
1 Cup Raisins

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy
3. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well
4. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Mix well
5. Stir in oats and raisins, mix well
6. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. (For smaller
   cookies, use rounded Tsps)
7. For softer cookies, bake 10 to 14 minutes (depending on your oven) until tops
   of cookies are slightly spongy.  Otherwise cook until golden brown.
8. Cool on cookie sheet.
9. Try not to eat them all in one setting......

* For Splenda Brown Sugar Blend or other brown sugars, use their conversion chart.  Usually 1/2 cup of the blend.

** You can use self-rising flour (not as good) and not add the baking soda and salt.


  Here's a recipe for microwave meatloaf that I got from my mom.  It's actually better than an oven baked meatloaf, very juicy and succulent.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.....


2 lbs ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup oatmeal or crackers
Small to med chopped bellpepper
1 med chopped fresh onion or 4 tblsp dried onions
1/2 can tomato sauce (save the rest for after it's cooked)

Hand mix it
Deep Glass bowl sprayed with Pam
Set small 1/2 glass of water in center of glass bowl and pack meatloaf around it
Press paper towel around meatloaf to cover
Nuke on high for 20 min
Take off paper towels and remove glass
Put 1/2 can of tomato sauce on top of meatloaf and nuke on high for 1 min
