Breads: Macaroni Grill Bread
Place yeast, sugar and water in large bowl or food processor and allow mixture to be come bubbly. Mix in flour and salt and half of the rosemary. Knead 10 minutes by hand or about 1 minute in a food processor until smooth and elastic. Let dough rise 1 hour or until doubled. Punch down and rest 5 to 10 minutes. Form 2 round loaves and place on greased baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with remaining rosemary, pressing lightly onto the top. Let rise 45 minutes or until double. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 450 degrees F until lightly browned.
Desserts: Raspberry Sticks
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Mix flour and salt together in separate bowl. Pour about a third of the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix well. Repeat until all of the flour mixture has been added. If the dough is too stiff, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Chill dough in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut the chilled dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into a rope the length of your cookie sheet. Put ropes onto the cookie sheet, side by side. With your finger, make an indentation all the way down the middle of each rope. Bake for 6 minutes, then remove from oven and fill the indentation with jam. Put back in the oven for 6 to 9 minutes. Cut ropes into cookies and serve.
Main Dishes: Easy Alfredo Sauce
In a medium bowl, beat butter and Parmasan with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add cream, a little at a time, until mixture resembles softly scrambled eggs. Toss with hot pasta and serve.
Other: Jell-O Worms
Extend straws to full length and place bendable-neck-side-down in a container that can hold them close together standing up, like a tall cup. Wrap with a loose rubber band to hold straws together and upright.
Combine gelatins in a bowl and add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Carefully pour into the container, filling the straws. Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.
Pull straws from container. Pull straws apart. Run hot tap water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time. Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with a rolling pin, or use your fingers. Lay on waxed paper lined baking sheets. Cover and chill. Worms will hold at room temperature for about 2 hours.
Soup & Salad: Taco Salad
Brown the ground beef with a little salt and pepper. Set aside. Prepare tomatoes, lettuce and green onions. Combine in large bowl with the ground beef and cheese. Toss with chili powder until well combined. If you want more chili powder, go for it! Wait to add the Doritos until the salad is being served because leftover salad with soggy chips is really unappetizing. Crumble a handful of chips over the top of ech serving and enjoy!
