    Found this hearty chicken stew recipe years ago in an AARP magazine article and have have made it many times for family and company, everyone always enjoys it as much as I do. Great for those cold winter nights

    Recipe #200813

    Found this in a William Sonoma magazine and it looks so good. Said that this began as a fisherman's breakfast - but where ever it came from sounds great and while I haven't made it yet, wanted to save the recipe here so I can. As an update finally got around to trying this and must say if you like something out of the ordinary this is a breakfast to impress. For the grits, after they were made I added 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to it and allowed it to melt - yum! It's a little more work than every day fare but the taste is something DH and I really enjoyed - hope you do too.

    Recipe #254590

    Found this recipe in a magazine and while I haven't made it, I'm anxious to give it a try. What's better for those cold, winter eves than a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup, and this one sounds a little different to me with leeks, parsnips and lemon in the stock and dill in the soup. The long prep time includes stock cooking time. You can use this as a base with differant additions, I've added frozen peas and mushroom slices a few minutes before serving and have even cooked it all in the crockpot for ease. Last time I changed out the egg noodles for home made. I haven't tried it yet - but thinking a can of stewed tomatoes added might be good to, play with it to your own liking.

    Recipe #254985

    Found these on another site while looking for a recipe for yeast biscuits. Tried these and they are fairly simple, rise nicely and taste very light. We had them with eggs, bacon and hot gravy with jam on the side for those that wanted it. What a nice way to start the day. Time does not include rising time.

    Recipe #268250

    Found this recipe in a magazine (can't remember which one) and when I tried it I sure wasn't disappointed. They are light wheat rolls with flecks of minced fresh sage and the directions say you can bake the rolls up to a month ahead and freeze; though that didn't happen at my house as they were gone in one setting. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. Prep time does not including rising time.

    Recipe #270876

    My daughter found this recipe on another food network and used it to stuff a baked chicken. We all loved it and since then I have fixed it to good reviews from all the family except the grandsons (was probably a little to different for them) The taste is rich and the texture moist, My daughter changed it some as it was intended for a goose, rather than chicken and called for roasted chestnuts, but we prefer mushrooms. Great for that special dinner for friends or family.

    Recipe #271015

    Found this recipe in a Taste of Home Magazine and made for my Holiday Cookie Tray. They look cute with lots of color, fairly easy to make, and the taste of peppermint and chocolate - what more could you want!! If you decide to try this I hope you enjoy as much as I did. Preparation time does not include chilling time

    Recipe #277161

    Found this in a Taste of Home Magazine and tried it and was not disappointed. A nice change from your every day sandwiches, easy to make with a little kick from the curry. I filled buns from recipe #133547 and used imitation crab meat. DH & I really enjoyed it, maybe you will too.

    Recipe #277447

    Found this recipe in April 2008 "Taste of Home" Magazine, tried it and loved it. Fairly simple to make, attractive presentation and wonderful blend of flavors with a just a hint of garlic and a wonderful citrus flavor. There are other similar recipes here, but this one is a little differant and my family really loved it. I served w/steamed white rice and spooned the extra sauce over that and it made for a lovely dinner.

    Recipe #296917

    Found the recipe in a William Sonoma magazine and sounds good. I haven't tried it yet and have never made risotto but want to try this. Sounds creamy with lots of flavor. If you try it before me, let me know.

    Recipe #297034

    Found this in Taste of Home Magazine and it sounds wonderful. Tangy lemon flavor with creamy souffles, recommends dressing up each serving with lemon peel or other garnish. What a wonderful taste of lemon (I put in a little extra as I like it tart) and the cake soufle mixed with the lemony pudding. YUM!

    Recipe #297048

    Found this in Taste of Home magazine and with rhubarb soon to be in season wanted to save it here. Hope to try it soon as sounds light and refreshing and not to difficult to make. Preparation time does not include refrigeration time. Rhubarb season and I finally got around to making this. If you like the tang of rhubarb you'll love this - I think it might be even better with strawberries added and might give that a try.

    Recipe #297433

    Found this in "Taste of Home" magazine and sounds yummy and looks pretty in the picture. I think even my picky DGSs might like this toasted; so wanted to save it here for safe keeping. Timing does not include rising time.

    Recipe #297603

    Found this in a grocery store magazine and sounds so nice I wanted to save it. Sounds like a simple, refreshing and pretty drink to serve during warm summer days. Preparation time does not includ chill or freezing time.

    Recipe #302219

    This was sent to my email from "Light & Tasty" and is credited to LaDonna Reed of Oklahoma. She says "trying to eat lighter but still crave sweets, this moist, chocolate cake helps with that. The rich frosting, makes a decadent treat" Well sounds good and pretty simple to me though I haven't tried it yet. If you do then let me know.

    Recipe #325031

    Found this on the William-Sonoma web site and they are so cute and look pretty easy think the DGSs will really like them. So decided to put the recipe here for safe keeping until the cookie cutters I've ordered arrive and I can make them. I think these will be fun and most recipes I get from William Sonoma taste great so hope these do to. Prep time does not include refrigeration or cooling time. I've guessed at the serving amount as the number of cookies will depend on the size of your cutters. Mine are a little larger than regular animal crackers. Finally made these and it was enjoyed by everyone, not just the kids. I think the fresh grated nutmeg is a must as it adds just that little bit of mystery to the taste that has folks asking "what is that flavor" I'm thinking they might even be good dipped in chocolate!

    Recipe #326823

    Another recipe I found on the William-Sonoma site that sounds great. Love lemon and have a lot of lavender that I grow so thought this would be pretty as well as yummy. Can't wait to try it out, but will save it here with all my recipes until I can get to it. If you make it, be sure your lavender is pesticide-free, probably the safest bet is to use it from your own garden or that of a friends. Edited to add forgotten flour in recipe - thanks Elisa for pointing it out! Finally made this and glad I did - I did make the frosting to thick instead of dripping down the sides and next time I'll be sure and do that. I added an extra half tsp. of Lemon Oil just to intensify the lemon flavor (we love Lemon in this house) and it was nice. A tart taste with just a hint of lavender with a texture that seemed almost layered, it's a small cake and the texture is heavier than most "cake" recipes I've tried, what I'd think of as a tea-cake - but we really liked it. I used lavender flowers right out of the garden and have to admit only used a 1/2 cup of ground almonds as I was tired of grinding.

    Recipe #326892

    Another Taste of Home recipe that sounds great for the upcoming fall weather. They say gingersnaps add crunch to this creamy, smooth mousse and I think my DGSs are going to love it. Timing does not include cooling time.

    Recipe #331058

    Found this recipe in a Christmas book of the same name by Wanda Brunstetter. The book was sweet story about a young Amish couple and the pie sounds wonderful. Sure haven't tried it yet but want to for Christmas so am putting it here to save. Finally made this (for Spring and not Christmas) and it was very good. It is sweet and I used sweetened flaked coconut so next time may use unsweetened. But very light, fresh and pretty - a lovely desert to impress with. I'm wondering how it would be with a meringue topping!

    Recipe #341301

    Found this in an email from Light & Tasty and I like the sound of the description attached. "This lightened-up dessert makes an amazing after-dinner treat. Break out the spoons and make sure you get a bite, because this is one dessert that won't be around for long!" Prep time does not include chilling time
