I saw this on Rachael Ray yesterday and we are so having it for dinner tonite, it's called French Dip soup.



Ingredients
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 large onions, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 sprigs thyme
1 fresh or dried bay leaf
1/2 cup white wine
6 cups beef stock
1/2 loaf crusty bread, torn into bite-size pieces and toasted
1 pound deli-style roast beef, shredded
Grated parmesan cheese, optional
Yields: 4 servings




Preparation
Heat a deep pot over medium to medium-high heat. Add EVOO, about one turn of the pan, and butter to the pot. Add the onions to the pot as you slice them and the chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper then add thyme sprigs and a bay leaf. Cook the onions for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender, sweet and deep caramel-colored. If the onions are burning in spots before browning all over, add a splash of water and stir every now and then, scraping the bottom of the pot.
Once the onions are tender and brown, add the white wine and scrape up all the brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the beef stock and cover the pot to bring the soup up to a quick boil.
Place a few chunks of the toasted bread into each of four deep soup bowls or crocks and top the toast with a handful of the shredded roast beef. Once the soup reaches a boil, remove the bay leaf and thyme sprigs, and ladle into bowls to cover the roast beef. If you like, top it off with a handful of grated parmesan cheese and enjoy!

I hope this isn't already on here - I didn't take the time to go through all the recipes.



Mustard Chicken



You will need:



*Boneless, skinless chicken breast (amount depends on how many people you will be serving and how big you cut the pieces - 2 good sized breasts usually feed my family of 3)
*Mustard (honey mustard also works if you like honey mustard or you can use regular yellow mustard)
*Flour
*Cooking Oil (either in a pan or in a deep fryer)



*Cut the chicken into small chunks or strips, whichever you prefer (although the small chunks cook faster)
*place chicken in a large bowl and cover with mustard - make sure to put enough mustard in there to cover all the chicken
*let the chicken marinade in the mustard (you can do this all day or for 5 minutes, whichever you prefer - obviously the longer it sits, the more the chicken absorbs the mustard)
*roll the chicken in flour (I fill a ziplock bag about half full with flour, throw a couple of pieces in at a time and shake it - easier than going piece by piece rolling it - and it helps to have someone else open and close the ziplock bag as you will have mustard all over your hands)
*place the chicken in the hot oil (either in a pan or a deep fryer) be sure there is enough oil to cover the chicken
*cook until flour is golden brown - cooking time varies on how hot your oil is and how big your chicken is - you may have to cut a piece in half at first to make sure it cooked all the way through



Even if you don't like mustard - you will love this chicken! My dad HATES mustard and he will go back 2 and 3 times to get more chicken when I would cook it when I lived at home. It is delicious! And now that I wrote this out, I am craving it! Hope you like it!

SUPER EASY peanut butter cookie recipe!!!



I love this recipe, it's so easy, so effortless , and so tasty.... hehe.
And if you have kids I bet it would be easy for them to help make them!!



1 cup sugar



1 egg



1 cup peanut butter



combine and mix. roll into balls. [place on ungreased cookie sheet. press with back of fork to make a criss cross effect.



Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes. I find they are usually fairly soft when I take them out, so don't feel like you need to cook them until they are hard, or you'll burn them!!
