08:25 pm - Peep peep
In honor of the Vernal Equinox, Passover, Holy Week and Easter I come bearing not eggs but Peep recipes -- perfect for all those holiday buffets!

Peep Waldorf Salad

(Best made with pink or yellow peeps. Lavender ones make the salad grayish . . . )

10 Peeps, whole
3 just ripe bananas, 1/2-inch dice
2 large navel oranges, sectioned, 1/2-inch pieces, and juice from one more
12 maraschino cherries, halved
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur
1/4 cup finely chopped macadamias, pecans or almonds

Mix all the ingredients, allow to macerate for a couple of hours, stirring a few times.

Can also be served as dessert with coconut cookies.

Blue Peep Pie

1 cookie crumb pie crust
1 four-serving box blue gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 cup whole milk (or half-and-half/light cream)
3 cups cold, but thawed non-dairy whipped topping
2 tablespoons Curacao or similar blue liqueur
15 blue Peeps
1 cup fresh blueberries for garnish

Freeze crust while you prepare the pie filling. Pour one cup
boiling water over gelatin in heat proof bowl. Stir to dissolve
gelatin. Add 1 cup cold milk and liqueur. Blend well and refrigerate
until gelatin has thickened, but not set firm.

Fold in thawed topping to chilled gelatin mixture. Mix completely
so that no streaks remain, but avoid overworking. Spoon filling
into frozen crust. Snip apart each family of Peeps. Arrange in
concentric circles atop pie filling. Use fresh blueberries to fill
in gaps between Peeps. Refrigerate for at least three hours.

The only good thing about Peeps is putting them in the microwave ans watching them blow up! Or - take 2 and put toothpicks in them to look like lances then place them in a microwave that has a carousel. As they inflate, they will move and look as if they are jousting!!

I've never tried nuking them, but the "jousting" idea sounds like fun!

I like Peeps -- I find them mildly addictive, in small doses -- a box won't last long with me, but I rarely go through more than one package at one sitting.

I really like marshmallows! :)
