Cooking it Up with Co-Workers

Yummy Pie

At my work I’m putting together a company cookbook. The cookbook is up to around 80 pages now, but I’m guessing there will be well over 100 when we get the book completed.

As I have said many times before, there are some very good cooks here at my work and everyone is sending in their “famous creations” to be included in the cookbook.

Over the next couple of weeks I plan on sharing some of these wonderful Learfielder’s recipes on my blog.

I’m first going to start with one of favorites! If you have never had Puppy Chow before you are missing out….this was one of favorite snack items in college. My girlfriends and I would make a huge batch and it wouldn’t last very long.

Also, Beth has a great recipe for funnel cakes….Ummm…it takes me back to the local and state fairs that just got over with. Nothing’s better than going to the Missouri State Fair and ordering freshly squeezed lemonade, a corndog and a funnel cake.
