Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I love to cook new recipes. Will you please give me some new and awesome recipe to try out? It can be dessert, breakfast, dinner, anything yummy!

Dear Unrelated,

I've made a few recipes from a friend's blog, and I think you would enjoy many of her creations. The lemon-garlic-green-pasta dish is my favorite!

Dear unrelated,

I made some mighty fine low-fat cheesy noodle kugel for Rosh Hashanah last week. My grandmother would cringe at my intentional omission of butter, but I swear you don't need it. All you need to do is:

Boil and drain:

  • a package of egg noodles

To the pot, add:

  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can Campbell's condensed cheese soup (sounds random and gross, but I swear it turns out tasty!)
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

You can fudge those measurements if you want; I didn't measure when I made it, so all of those are approximations. Just make sure there's enough saucy stuff to generously coat the noodles, then bake it at 350 for 20-30 minutes, or until it's set. This is basically the eggy, custard version of regular macaroni and cheese—don't expect it to be noodles in sauce, because it actually sets up into a sliceable noodle dish. Also, you can make this dish pretty healthy by using egg substitutes and fat-free cottage cheese and sour cream.

I also recommend this frozen peanut butter pie. It's still setting up in the freezer as I'm typing this, but judging by how awesome the filling was before I froze it, I think I can heartily recommend this recipe, as well.

Dear Unrelated 'Nym,

I love cooking and baking. I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to test. I also happen to keep almost all of my recipes in Word documents on my computer. If you, and any other interested readers out there, want to shoot me an e-mail, I'd be more than happy to send you a bunch of my favorite recipes. It would just be so much easier that way. skybones(at)theboard(dot)byu.edu.

Dear unrelated,

Not to excessively be the archives guy, but you'll find dozens of great recipes from Board writers if you search the Board for "recipes." Here are a few to get you started: Board Question #62442, Board Question #61237, Board Question #59445, Board Question #60224, and Board Question #44939.
