This is a case of a pintrest try and success. It looked delicious so I said "why not?"

Every year at Pennsic, I look forward to Ciarra's night to cook for the camp as she makes this dish she calls BBQ Turkey.

I never think of it as BBQ (as to me that requires smoking, application of a grill and usually some sort of sauce). But I find it delicious and I finally broke down and asked for the recipe, which she sent me last week.

The other weekend I wanted to make waffles for the Sunday after an event. I got up early to make them for my houseguest and discovered... I was out of baking mix. But I remembered my mother never made waffles with baking mix and I even remembered what cookbook she used. So, what are friends for if not to experiment culinarly on them?

The grocery store had whole roasting chickens on sale for such a good price I really couldn't pass it up, despite not currently having a working oven. While it would have fit in my little convection oven, I wanted to try something else.

So off to the internet I went and found how to roast a chicken in the slow cooker.

From: The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, by Deb Perelman (2012) ISBN 978-0-307-59565-2
Later found: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2009/01/mushroom-bourguignon/

I received the cookbook as a gift for Christmas and had instantly marked this as a "had to try" but needed the right reason to make it (other than it looked good). So, for the monthly "Game/Movie/Dinner Night that I have been trying to host, I decided to inflict my friends on a new recipe. After all, if you can't subject your friends to recipe experiments, who can you?

I doubled the recipe because I originally expected 6-7 people, but due to illness and other responsibilities, I ended up with just myself, J & P. So now I get lunches!

edit this is even better when it is given time to sit and let the flavors meld!

Anyway, on to the reporting: )

Yesterday was Baronial 12th Night and Potluck. When asked what kind of thing I should bring, I was told with a resounding voice that my baked goods are always appreciated.

So, what better excuse do I need to start this years Recipe Experiments.

So...

And yet another "found it on Pintrest". I do not like peanut butter so the traditional peanut butter blossoms (or Black eyed Susans as my mom called them) are not ones I make. But I saw these and decided to try them since I like cherries and chocolate.

Another one from Pintrest that looked interesting and would add some color to the Christmas Cookie tray.

These came because the Katie asked for them and the recipe happened to hit my email in-box on the same day.

Pintrest is an evil, evil thing. Especially when things like this candy appear. Needlesstosay I had to try it.

For the Christmas cookie baking this year I wanted to try some new things. The first on the list is one I always associate with Christmas but never tried making and was rather surprised to find out just how easy they were.

Every year my friends Michael and Deidre throw a Christmas Party called "Grinchmas". The theme is the Grinch and we watch the Animated Grinch and the horrid Jim Carry movie.

But it's a potluck and this year I went looking for something different to bring and went to my new favorite evil site "Oh Bite It" and lo and behold, she had a thing called "Grinch Cake" Which I absolutely had to try and subject my friends to

Ever since a bunch of Australians introduced me to a little bit of chocolatey decadence many years ago at Pennsic, I have been a fan of the Tim Tam Cookie. I became very excited to discover a store near my sister in Maryland sells them and I get several packages when I go to visit.

So of course I was intrigued when I came across a recipe on my facebook wall called a Tim Tam Cake.

But, I'm not enough of a chocolate fan to make one for just me and waited for the right time. That came when my company's holiday party had a dessert contest. So I broke out the recipe and tried it.
