Monastary Cake = delicious! I had marmalade languishing in the fridge that i used up, and dried apples that I chopped.

You're right, not too sweet but sweet enough to satisfy that sweet craving.

I'll be sure to tell him that people think it's cute.  :LOL:  As for being allowed, it will be interesting to see what his friends will say.  :LOL:  But besides being cute, those dolls are symbols of home life so it's his way of saying, "I'm settled down." 

I'm glad that you enjoyed the Monastery Cake!  There are so many ways to make it because the Orthodox monks (historically, it's an old cake) used what they had laying around.  As well, they do a lot of fasting where there are some days oil is allowed but not dairy.  The cake works on those kind of days.

And wow, look at all the recipes that have been posted!  And ones with lean protein (chicken and tuna) that Goldilocks will really appreciate!  I'll be doing a lot of printing right now.  Thanks to you all!  I am intrigued to try that Festive Fudge for the holidays and Apple Crisp now, In His Love.

Zubr, I didn't forget about you.  My friend's been out of town on vacation.  Should be back Wednesday. 

My crockpot chili.  Also works well with a mixture of beef and venison.

Crockpot chili

1 1/2 to 2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans (16 oz) of black beans
1 can (16 oz) of diced tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 Tbsp cayenne
1 tsp cumin
4 slices raw bacon, chopped
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsp Worcesteshire sauce
1 cup beer
2 x bay leaves

Cook beef until browned, then drain off excess fat.  Add beef and all remaining ingredients to crock pot.  Stores well overnight.  Cook on "low" 5 to 6 hours.  Serve with rice or tortilla chips, sour cream and cheddar cheese.

Thanks for the tip.  I made this over the weekend with a twist.  I split a habanero pepper and removed the seeds, then toasted the pepper halves for about 8 minutes at 400F (no idea what that temperature is in Canadian :grin:).  Delicious.
