I live in a bubble. I love this bubble. Sometimes I forget that not everyone lives in that bubble with me. I apologize. Before I tell you all what I made for Ward Prayer, I will explain just what Ward Prayer is.
Ward Prayer is a social gathering every Sunday night (ours is at 9 pm) for our Singles Ward that my husband is a Bishopric member of. They have a spiritual thought, and then say a prayer as a ward...hence the name, Ward Prayer. We usually have about 80 to 100 people every Sunday night, and I make treats for every Ward Prayer.
Ok now we can get on with it. Here's what I made last Sunday...
Almond Poppy Seed Muffins
I love these. I got the recipe from Betty Crocker.
This is not your ordinary chocolate chip cookie. They have white chocolate chips, semi sweet, and milk chocolate chips. There is also sweetened condensed milk in them! You can't go wrong with that! I got this recipe from my water aerobics teacher, Jolene. I have no idea who Abby is, but i'm grateful for her cookies! The recipe (posted at the bottom) makes about 85. They vanished quickly!
Sorry, these never make a cute picture, but they taste awesome. I searched everywhere for a decent sauce to cook these in. You'll never guess what I came up with! I mixed together Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, and Grape Jelly. Yep, Grape Jelly. I warmed the Lil' Smokies in two crock pots for a few hours first. Then I poured over the sauce, and let it cook for another few hours. It was REALLY good! My husband, who doesn't like Lil Smokies, even loved them! There were no leftovers!
Here's a couple more food items that I made for Ward Prayer a few weeks ago...
Red Velvet cookies, Swedish Rosettes (I made these with my in-laws), and a Raspberry Chipotle Sauce poured over cream cheese, served with crackers.
