    Small scale turkey dinner.

    Recipe #165587

    Wowchos are similar to nachos, but with lots of garlic. This recipe won first place at the ''83 Garlic Festival , an annual event held in Gilroy, California, garlic capital of the world. The garlic mellows out while baking, so it tastes much better than it sounds. Garlic affectionados usually add even more garlic to the recipe.

    Recipe #303860

    We love the turkey legs they serve at the local Flea Market, the Colorado Rennaissance Festival and at our theme parks, so we sought out the recipe and now use this excellent version to indulge in that tasty finger [hand] food.This is supposedly the authentic recipe used by turkey leg vendors at fairs and festivals. Boiling the turkey legs first may seem like cheating but if you have to make thousands of them to sell you don't want to have them sitting on your grill for 20 to 30 minutes before you sell them. Original recipe from the About.com website. For easy serving, after grilling, wrap the bottom end of the legs in aluminum foil and a napkin or paper towel to make a great "holder".

    Melt in your mouth delicious. Can also use Twinkies instead of Snickers and use same directions.

    Recipe #70068

    A response to a recipe request, I've heard interesting things over the years about fried pickles but have never tried them myself... :)

    Recipe #28888

    From Bitsy's Kitchen.

    Recipe #38188

    I had these at a local county fair and just had to try to make them. They are delicious.You can substitute your favorite dry pancake mix for the Bisquick. They are best when eaten warm. If you are want to try a lighter version, use lowfat milk, canola oil, and reduced fat Oreos.

    Recipe #42152

    Deep Fried Twinkies were a big hit at the Texas State Fair. Recipe from GMA Food Website.

    Recipe #221446

    This is an incredibly indulgent, special occasion only dessert. It's delicious served with vanilla ice cream.

    Recipe #194186

    Great toped with powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar or honey. Serve warm and enjoy. RECIPE COURTEY: Cooks.com

    Recipe #281943

    There are a lot of names for these. They call them Elephant Ears in Portland, OR. The toppings our family loves are butter, cinnamon, powdered sugar & lemon juice, mini chocolate chips, honey, and berries. Let me know what your family likes to top these with.

    Recipe #220079

    This has been a Christmas morning tradition in our home for the past 43+ years. It is so easy and one that the family wouldn't want to be without. Serve it with butter and confectioners sugar, or maple syrup if you choose. Whatever way--they are yummy! By the way, my grandmother used to raise dough every Friday night for baking bread on Saturday and in the morning would snip off a little bit and fry them for my mom as a treat. I tried the homemade bread dough, and although it was good, I like the frozen bread dough better and my mom agreed.

    Recipe #149326

    Very easy as a main dish or as filling for a sandwich. A short list of ingredients and it cooks up quick. For a sandwich, I use the large sandwich rolls and top it off with a couple of spoonfuls of salsa, but you could try it with a slice of provolone cheese and some mustard as well.

    Recipe #114989

    You can cook it with hot Italian sausages as in the directions below or you can make it with mild or sweet sausages. If you do, you may want to omit the peppers and add either a touch of honey, syrup, or brown sugar, and sliced tart apples . Either way, I think I'd keep the onions...but that's a personal choice. You can also add chili flakes or parsley or any herb/spice that suits your tastes. If you want to serve it over pasta, you can add a can or two of spaghetti sauce and slice the sausauges before frying. This recipe is so versatile, you can't go wrong.

    Recipe #74728

    My Mom made these often when I was growing up and I have always loved them! I think this is the most authentic and traditional way to make these.Traditional Sausage and Peppers do NOT have tomato sauce! We always ate them on Italian sub rolls with mustard but you could eat these alone with good crusty bread on the side. This serves 8 and can easily be scaled down or increased depending on how many you want to feed.

    Recipe #101003

    You really haven't lived until you've had home made fries. After the oil is cooled, filter it and reuse. So long as it'd not over heated it will last 5-6 frys.

    Recipe #39897

    I adopted this recipe from Mean Chef.

    Recipe #60119

    These have the old-fashioned red coating I used to get when I was a child. They don't have the cinnamon flavor, but a delightful candied flavor that hints of clove and apple.

    Recipe #44641

    I loved candy apples as a child. I never knew they had cinnamon until I found this recipe. I was surprized when they turned out just like the ones at the Fair. I forget how many apples it covers so I just guessed 10.

    Recipe #223877

    These are awesome. The candy is really crunchy and easy to eat. They remind you of the fair. I use Granny Smith Apples because it's the perfect combination of tart and sweet. You don't taste the lemon juice at all, but it give the candy the perfect flavor.
