Two Things

First, a personal plug. I started a community! Here's the info for vegetariancooks:

This community is intended to be an on-going collection of meatless recipes. Feel free to post any meat-free recipes, whether they're your own creations or favorites from other sources.

Recipes posted here do not have to be whole meal dishes. Please feel free to post veggie recipes, side dishes, desserts, drinks...anything that doesn't include meat. (You do NOT have to be a "vegetarian" to post, to join, or to enjoy this site. However, no flaming will be tolerated.)

Recipes may include milk and egg products. No beef, chicken, pork or fish.

Enjoy the community! From beginners who have just set foot in a kitchen for the first time, to accomplished cooks, all are welcome here!

Questions? Email vegetariancooks@livejournal.com.

So join it, and post some recipes and stuffs. :)

Second...this is the first recipe I'll be posting on that site. I made it yesterday, and it is so, so, so good. And super easy to make, too.

Orange Cranberry Almond Cereal Bars

1/4 cup unsalted butter
5 cups mini-marshmallows
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds
5 cups multi-vitamin, multi-grain cereal flakes (like Kellogg's Product 19)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
Nonstick cooking spray, for pan

In a 2-quart microwavable bowl, microwave butter and marshmallows on 100% power for one two minutes. Stir in the orange juice concentrate and microwave on 100% power for one minute. Stir until smooth.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cranberries, almonds, cereal, and wheat germ. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal mixture and stir until cereal is thoroughly covered.

Spritz a 9X13-inch glass baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the mixture into the pan. With wet hands (I just used a spatula) pat the cereal evenly into the pan. Cool completely. (I refrigerated them.) Cut into bars. Eat. Yum!
