    From Fix It & Forget It. I usually omit the lemon and add 1/2 cup brown sugar,also the bacon can be eliminated if you don't have it. Pork steak can be substituted. It breaks up and falls of the bone and this turns into a stew.

    Recipe #396147

    Got this recipe from a Louisville morning show showcasing Churchill Downs Chef Gil Logan. I passed the recipe on to Alan (my best friend from college) and he and I made them one night. I couldn't have whiskey or beer in the dorm, so I got everything else. They are good, but very strong at first. We used Sweet Baby Ray's and Tabasco for the hot sauce, Jim Beam and Budweiser for the booze. These are commonly used as appetizers, but we served them with rice and a broccoli casserole.

    Recipe #206619

    This recipe is similar to a fruitcake but much lighter. The texture is more like that of a pound cake. My mom got it from a Philadelphia cream cheese box many years ago. She made it for my dad every Christmas. I inherited the recipe after she passed away,and now I make it for him. I am posting it here so I won't lose it.I hope some of you will enjoy this as much my dad.

    This recipe uses nearly a whole bottle of dark beer, such as stout, which gives these aromatic burgers a nice subtle carmel-like flavor and color. I like to use a Belgium strong beer for these. You can include a couple jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced, with the sautéing onion and garlic if you'd like to add some heat. From the show "Licence to Grill".

    Recipe #119017

    One of my favourite winter soups belongs to the traditional family cuisine of my town. The literary source is Ada Boni's "La cucina di Roma" which I think has not been translated but I suppose her "Italian Regional Cooking" should include it as well. The real sources, though, are my mother and especially my grandmother, Carlotta, who was able to share the same memories of culinary simplicity that inspired Ada Boni.

    Recipe #362290

    Everythime I go through my stacks of cookbooks and folders, I find a recipe that I loved and could not throw away. This is another one of those recipes. I got this out of a cookkbook from 25 years ago and still enjoy making this.

    Recipe #291505

    From Taste of Home. I cut this recipe into fourths and five of us ate it Christmas morning with leftovers. I used Muenster cheese and cut it very small. All of us (including 2 picky kids) really liked it.

    Recipe #274722

    Mostly inspired from Recipe #172377, this is a mixture of champ and colcannon recipes that I have tried, and lightened up.

    Recipe #263174

    This ice cream has a spirited coolness and velvety smoothness. This recipe doesn't require an ice cream maker. Cook time is freeze time.

    Recipe #242176

    I got this recipe from my Cooking Light friends though this isn't exactly a light recipe! But it's oh so good!

    Recipe #227904

    To me, ham has too much salt. I didn't get it very often because of that. After doing a search on the internet to see if there was a way to take some of the salt out of a ham, I found a suggestion on the Morton Salt site. I have done this method three times since finding their suggestion. This method really does work. It doesn't take all of the salt out of a ham, but it takes a lot of it out. It makes the ham taste much better. It even works on Spiral Cut hams. This is for cut hams. I don't know if this will work on a whole ham. This needs to be done 24 hours before cooking the ham. Cooking time is the time it takes to soak the ham. I had to put in specific sizes of ingredients so I put the size/amount as a suggestion. You might need more water, depending on the size of ham and pot you are using.

    Recipe #222670

    This is a fruit version, not a nut version

    Recipe #219881

    This is just another one of my Grandmother's many hidden talents. (Homemade Noodles) She made all of her food from scratch. It was not only cheaper at the time, but better for you, according to her.

    Recipe #213430

    Found this on the Hershey's website while searching for ways to use up the after-the-holidays supplies. I love butterscotch (not quite as much as I do caramel, but...)stuff like this is a great thing for me to pop in the oven when I have company for movies and nosh. I already make a version with little bite-sized candy bars and they are always gone by the first few minutes of the movie. I think that the addition of the coconut to the chips is divine!

    Recipe #206618

    I have a recipe here posted for Cherry Cola Apples, but I have also found one that I like just as much. This recipe uses diet cola, but are strawberry-flavored. They're different for sure, but I thought they were delicious. I'm always looking for different ways to use anything that can be used in a diabetic diet. This one came from Lifescan, which is the company that produces my blood sugar monitor.

    Recipe #204999

    This is too easy and so good. Very good if your watching your carbs.. Note.. No bread added.

    Recipe #192403

    Mom loves Polish sausage dogs, usually plain or with mustard. I like them like this. I either pre-fry them and make this sauce and then add them, or just toss it all together and simmer. Make sure you get some good soft buns that will hold those big ole dogs. They're a bit bigger than a regular hot dog.

    Recipe #191778

    I posted a few of my Mom's recipes in the community forum My Mom's best Meal and was asked by Bergy to posted them on Zaar. I had to measure out the ingredients to get the amounts because my Mom "eyed" everything. I didn't include the time it takes for me to prepare the noddles or to roll them out and the rest of the times may be off a little as well because i haven't timed how long it takes for the dish to re heat for serving.

    Recipe #189624

    Recipe #185000

    I found this recipe in the 1994 Preventions Cooking for Good Health Cookbook. I am following WW and this is a wonderful low fat/calorie substitute for Deviled Eggs.
