Tasty Tropical Smoothies, by Danneskjold

This is a recipe for a yummy fruity smoothie (WITH DETAILS! =P) that Danneskjold's sixth grade teacher used to make.

Cool Whip
Sprinkles (optional).

**Tip** This tastes best with fresh fruit, and local (if possible! lol). If not, frozen will work fine.

Step 1. Take half a papaya, and scoop as much out as you can. Although it may be a bit obvious, but I thought I'd point out that you should also get rid of the seeds. Use the juices and flesh only.

Step 2. Use approximately 3 spoonfuls of mango (if it is strong; if not, add a little more).

Step 3. Add in 1 whole passion fruit. Remove the skin (it's bitter tasting). Although you can eat the seeds, I'd recommend just using the flesh and juices.

Step 4. Add in 5 cubic inches pineapple (estimate). If you don't think that you will use the rest of the pineapple, try substituting this with a small can of pineapple tidbits.

Step 5. Blend! (Lol)

Step 6. Put cool whip on top and freeze. Your smoothie should be nice and consolidated after about 15-25 minutes in the freezer.

If you're feeling happy, or need a pick me up, throw some sprinkles on top!

Krizak's Redneck Shepard's Pie

Krizak writes, "This is more of a trailer park thing than a gamer one, but I love it so I thought I'd share. It's a variation on "Chili Pie." I call it Redneck Shepard's Pie."

It really has a little bit of this and that, making this a tasty dinner selection. Kudos Krizak!

1 can Chef Boyardee Lasagna
1 can Chef Boyardee Beefaroni
1 can Dinty Moore Beef Stew
1 bag Fritos
1 bag (any variety) Doritos
1 box Kraft Mac and Cheese.

Step 1. Crush the Fritos and Doritos into crumbs, and line bottom of a pie pan or casserole dish. This is especially fun to do if you just were ganked/camped!

Step 2. Mix your crushed chips with a little melted butter (this will make shaping the bottom crust easier).

Step 3. Mix in your Lasagna, Beefaroni, and stew.

Step 4. Bake in the oven on 350 for 25 minutes. While baking, prepare mac and cheese with MILK INSTEAD OF WATER. I usually add a touch of garlic to my mac and cheese as well.

Step 5. Once the pie is done baking, use an icing spatula to spread mac and cheese over the top, as the top crust.

Step 6. Return to oven for 10 minutes to allow top to brown.

The Golden Blanket Sandwich, by Shaidao

I have to admit, this sounds like uberiffically good. And I will have to make it sometime.

Shaido writes, "This is a extremely simple snack/meal to make that is sure to satisfy your appetite."

Olive Oil
Unsliced loaf of Fresh Bread
Cheese (It doesn't really matter what kind, just use your favorite!)
Bacon (You can use really any greasy, non healthy, meaty food. :P)
Creamy Caesar Dressing (If you don't have Caesar on hand, try this with Ranch Dressing.)

Ok. Now that you have you ingredients, let's get cooking!

Step 1. Cut up some nice 1 inch thick pieces of bread.

Step 2. Coat both sides of the bread with olive oil. Use enough for it to soak into the bread.

Step 3. Grill the oiled bread on a cookie sheet (or other flat pan) at 210 degrees for 5 minutes. Then flip them so the bottom gets crispy, but keep an eye on them until they go golden.

Step 4. Turn your grill off, and let them continue to simmer in the oven.

Step 5. To prepare the cheese, cut nice 2-3mil thick slices or bigger if you like cheese (we won't judge).

Step 6. Add your meat and quickly take the slices of bread out of the oven.

Step 7. Pour a little Caesar Dressing, add the bacon, and cover it with cheese.

Step 8. Pop your sandwich in the oven and turn it up to 150 degrees. Keep an eye on it till the cheese melts.

Step 9. Next, turn off your oven (so you don't burn your bloody house down, I warn you cause the food will look so good you may forget about everything except the food).

Give the sandwich time to cool... but not too long! Eating it hot is very nice. Very, very nice!

And VOILA! A 15 minute meal that's bound to make you want more.

Ohkay's No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

Most recipes that are "no bake" are a.o.k. with me. Now for those who feared that they'd burn their houses down if they cook while they game, try these cookies out!

What you need:
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup Milk
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder (unsweetened is ideal, unless you REALLY like sweetness)
Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 tablespoons Peanut Butter
3 cups of Quick Oats

This recipe will make about three dozen cookies.

Step 1. Mix the sugar, butter, milk, cocoa powder, and salt in a large saucepan. Bring this to a boil over medium heat. Stirring constantly. Let boil for 3 minutes.

**Tip** Do not stop stirring; you don't want to curdle the milk!

Step 2. Remove from stove, and stir in the vanilla and the peanut butter. Continue to stir until the peanut butter is melted completely into the mixture.

Step 3. Add the oats and mix.

Step 4. Place tablespoon sized scoops onto a sheet of waxpaper. Let these firm, and then they're ready to eat. :) No baking at all!
