French Dip Sandwiches

This is from my friend Debbie:
we tried this recipe for french dip sandwiches yesterday. it's lower sodium than others i've tried. next time, i might use a little less soy sauce. i thought it was still a little salty tasting. and maybe a little less thyme. but good. the boys liked it because the meat wasn't very seasoned, but g and i could dip it. something for everyone - and leftovers!

Crock Pot French Dip

1 lean beef roast (3 to 4 pounds)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
1 bay leaf
3 to 4 whole peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Hard rolls or French bread
Directions: Remove and discard all visible fat from roast. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, bouillon and spices; pour over roast. Add water to almost cover roast. Cover and cook over low heat 10-12 hours or until meat is very tender. Remove meat from broth; reserve broth. Shred meat with a fork. Serve on hard rolls or French bread slices with broth. Yield: 12 sandwiches.

Roasted Red Pepper and Cranberry Salsa

This is from my friend, Toni Taylor:
I had this at a health food store in Virginia. After making some adjustment I thought it was ready for success. It is a great combo of sweet with salty tortilla chips. The original recipe called for zest and juice of one small orange and 1 whole can of cranberry sauce: it was too sweet.

1/2 can whole cranberry sauce
1 can roasted red peppers (or 3)
1 tsp fresh garlic
¼ cup diced sweet onion Loosen cranberry sauce. Stir in all other
1/3 cup chopped cilantro ingredients, saving cilantro until last.
Salt and Pepper to taste

Hooker Cookies

A friend of mine would make these cooking for the single guys in our ward and every time they would ask for them or she would make them she would say "I feel like sucha hooker!" Thus, the name. Enjoy!!!

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 pkg. white chocolate chips

Mix and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 min.

They are GREAT!

(Lisa, you may remember Kris Tina making these :))
