My Favorite Egg Roll Site

Hey everyone! Danny and I have been expirimenting with making a lot of Mexican and Chineese food over the past few months.  I just wanted to share my favorite egg roll recipe and site! This link has a recipe as well as great tips for making fantastic egg rolls! Enjoy

 From Steamy Kitchen

For some reason I only have this one pic of 2 of our egg rolls, but aren't they sexy? lol and Sooooo good!


This is the BEST peanut brittle recipe I have ever found! It's so easy and fast I just loooove it. I think I got it from the Home Economics teacher Mrs. Child in highschool :) Mom and  I have had to fiddle with the reciple some to get the cooking time right for our own microwaves.  If the times don't work for you try again with shorter or longer time as needed.


Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar
1/2 Cup Karo
3/4 cup raw spanish peanunts
1/8 tsp salt

1 T. butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp baking soda

Grease one cookie sheet. Mix sugar, karo, nuts and salt in a MICROWAVE SAFE glass bowl. Microwave for 3.5 min.  Add butter and stir. Cook for 2.5 min, stir.  Cook 2 min, stir, add vanilla and baking soda, stir and quickly poor onto greased cookie sheet.

Let cook, break into pieces, stretch with forks while still warm if desired. 

NOTE: If you are going to make another batch let your bowl cool completely or use a  different bowl or it will burn... I have burned SO many batches of this by not paying attention to time or using a warm bowl.
