Some of our family's favorite dishes from bbq to casseroles, good eatin's to scrumptious vitals, from tantilizing treats that titillate the tastebuds to delicious, decadent desserts! Ya'll come back now, ya hear?!
Not sure where the recipe is originally from, but it is very intoxicating. Great for a Carribean or Tropical theme...Good for potlucks (not church or job related ones). Best if made the day before and refrigerated. Guessed on prep time and servings...depends on how big you slice the bundt cake and how long you wait between applications of the glaze.
This is supposedly the way that potato chips were first made, by George Crum in Saratoga New York, around 1850. With all the types and variety of chips available today, they certainly have "come a long way baby, to get where they got to today"! nt
These are just like the ones you get at the fair! Most recipes leave out the very important step of boiling before baking. You must do this to achieve the right results. *Prep time includes rising time.
Several reviewers complain about the recipe being too sweet and/or too buttery as originally written. I've included the amounts I use, which I think are 'just right'. Also, since I usually don't have pumpkin pie spice in the house, I use 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves and 1/2 tsp. ginger instead. (Tip: Using 2/3 of the cake mix instead of half makes it easy to make 8 cupcakes with the remaining box since the mix calls for 3 eggs.)
I know there are a "select few" who will say this is NOT how to can beets. This is the recipe my Mother-in-law, her Mother and grandmother, my Great grandmother, my Grandmother, my Mother and I have ALWAYS used. As with any thing we can, the food and the jars and lids have to be BOILING HOT for them to seal properly. I could eat my weight in these things.
This recipe yields the best tasting greens I have ever eaten! I have yet to have a batch of bitter greens when cooked this way. This recipe has the potential to change the minds of green-haters and may even bring about a cute southern accent. Blanching the greens before adding to the slow cooker helps remove the natural bitterness. I usually make it with kale and beet greens but other greens work as well. The greens pair well with pilsner or an off-dry riesling, especially if you use the balsamic vinegar.
Crisp little chips of pepperoni that are an excellent snack with beer or even a glass of wine. They are quite addictive. From World Wide Recipes.
UPDATE (10-27-06): I have always purchased Hormell pepperoni, but recently tried an off brand and found that they burned very quickly when I baked them. The length of time for baking will depend on your oven and the pepperoni. You will need to adjust to find the proper time for you...it could be up to 20 minutes.
