Fabulous Fruit Salad
1 package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup buttermilk
1 small tub of Coolwhip.
Canned fruit (I use one regular, one tropical and two of those little
mandarin orange cans, but any three cans will work)
1 package Keebler Fudge Striped cookies
Mix the buttermilk and pudding mix until the pudding mix is dissolved
Mix in the Coolwhip
coarse Crush three of the four rows of cookies and add
drain and add fruit
Use the remaining cookies to decorate the top
This takes about five minutes to make and is an excellent desert to store in
the fridge or take to office parties.
I'm going to go start a blog now.

Okay, this is not really a dish recipe, but two tips for cooking:
First, do you want your steaks and such to come out more like high-end restaurant steaks? When you cut the steak (or bring it home from the store), put it in a resealable bag along with extra-virgin olive oil, fresh chopped garlic, and fresh rosemary. Let it sit at least overnight, 24-hours is better, then cook. Do not salt the meat until it is done.
Second, want to add flavor to boiled things? You always hear about using beer and such to boil hot dogs and other delights. If you want to add some zing to hot dogs, pasta, or anything else you cook/heat by boiling without using beer or alcohol, consider adding some real (not artificial) apple cider vinegar (or balsamic) and spices to the mix. The vinegar adds zing, and the spices can add a great deal of flavor as well. There is nothing that says boiled must be bland. Season the water.
