  1. Homemade Beef Jerky
    Maya Halevy

    Rate: *

    0.8 kg Boneless Cross Rib
    5 tbs Club House Steak Spice
    ¼ cup BBQ sauce

    1. Trim all fat off meat.
    2. Cut steak in to 4-inch strips
    3. The steak should be about 1/4 inch thick
    4. Spice meat and refrigerate over night
    5. Add and mix in BBQ sauce
    6. Line cookie sheets with baking sheet.
    7. Place steak strips on baking sheet (don't overlap meat)
    8. Set oven at lowest temperature (170°F)
    9. Bake for 2 hrs, turning after 1 hr.
    10. Set oven at temperature. (200°F) and leave oven door slightly open.
    11. Bake for 2-3 additional hours or until meat is cooked and dry.

    Hints: The meat should have been cut much thinner as it took a very long time to cook and it did not dry completely. (I cut it 1/4 inch thick).

  2. Peach Cobbler
    Matt Mackay and Katherine Vander Pluym

    Rating: ***

    2 29 oz. cans peaches
    1 Stick butter
    2 c Flour
    2 c Sugar
    2 ts Vanilla
    2 ts Baking powder
    1/8 ts Salt
    2 c Milk

    In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt). In a large Dutch oven, melt the butter over coals. To the dry ingredients, add the milk and vanilla. Whisk well to combine. Pour the batter into the Dutch oven with the melted butter. Pour in the peaches on top. Cover with lid and place coals on top. Cook for 20-30 minutes over the coals, checking often.

    Hints: If we were to make this again, we would drain all of the liquid out of the can before we put the peaches in the dutch oven. Otherwise it will be watery.

    Banana chips
    by John and Andrew

    Rating: ***


    3 bananas
    1 squeezed lemon
    brown sugar

    Slice bananas thinly to about 1/8th of an inch thick. Coat the bananas in lemon juice (to avoid browning) and lay them on a non-stick baking sheet. Put the bananas in the oven at 200 degrees and leave them for two hours. Take them out, flip them and put them back in for another 1-2 hours. Let the banana chips cool overnight and coat them in brown sugar and cinnamon for flavour.

    Hints: Lemon juice is crucial or else they get brown first and do not taste as good.

    Rate your recipe: **** Excellent, I already made something like it at home. I made a cheese bun with a hamburger bun and bacon strips.

    Recipe: Include all ingredients and instructions.
    OutCome + Reaction: The next time would cook the snack for a shorter period of time. Everyone from the class liked it because I did two batches one with bacon and one without.
    Hints: Add tons of cheese and you will need to melt a lot of butter to dip the dinner rolls in. I might cook it a little short time so as to make to cheese more melty.
