    My daughter Amanda found this recipe in a old church cookbook, that I have had for years. Its the kind of cake that you want to stick your face in the pan and never come up for air.

    Recipe #91644

    Christmas gifts from me are usually centered around something I know someone likes or will like. Of course, using whiskey/bourbon in anything is something that all Kentuckians know about. These little suckers can either be made with a smooth bourbon such as Maker's Mark or a kickin whiskey like Jim Beam. Either way, they are a must for our holiday cheer. And the more you eat, the more you want. The nine hours cook time is actually chill time and the yield depends on how much fondant you use for each ball.

    Recipe #236545

    I was watching Emeril one day and almost fell off the sofa. He was making a pineapple upside down cake and it's almost the exact same recipe my mother used the one and ONLY time she made that same cake. But you HAVE to hear the story behind this one. My cousin Janice and I spent a lot of time together when we were kids. Mom cooked but truth be told she was not the best there was. This one day, however, Mom decided to try her hand at pineapple upside down cake. Ok...from now on I'm calling it PUD cake...way too much to type. Anyway, she spent the better part of a morning really concentrating on this recipe. When it came out of the oven -- it looked pretty good! Wow! Mom made a PUD cake!! Of course, Jan and I stood ready with forks and plates but Mom said we had to wait for dinner, to go outside and play and she had better not find finger marks in the cake. So not wanting to risk a whipping, we went outside knowing that in a couple of hours she would call us in to wash up and eat. Man, we would have endured burnt brussel sprouts and liver just to get to that dessert! After a while, we noticed that Mom had gone across the street to chat with a neighbor. Naturally the plot was hatched to sneak inside and maybe we could slip a finger up under the cake for a nibble without it being noticed. Ok...so remember the whole shock and awe thing on TV with the war? Nuh-uh -- we had the first shock and awe incidents ever recorded in history. Mom had left the cake on the buffet on a glass pedestal and covered with saran wrap. The saran wrap was disheveled beyond belief. Huge crumbs were laying all over the buffet and on one side it looked like the cake had been literally attacked. Big chunks were missing! Man! We didn't do it!! I mean, for REAL -- this time we could truthfully say we didn't do it. But who did? Ok, that was shock and awe #1. Here we are standing there staring at the destroyed cake with ragged pineapples and cherries hanging off the cake plate. Kids are basically pretty dumb. Had we any clue at all, we would have run for the hills because shock and awe #2 came when Mom threw open the front screen door, took one look at the cake, one look at us standing there staring at the cake and it was on! This was one of those whippings where your Mother just comes out swinging and what's worse, she's talking in between each blow. You can hear it, can't you? "Didn't I tell you..." thwack thwack thwack "...not to touch that cake..." thwack thwack thwack "...after I spent all morning..." thwack thwack thwack You feel it, don't you? ha ha!!! We did too. The whole time the three of us are running around the dining room table. The dust balls must have been rolling around laughing. It all looked really comical. Mom going one way, us going another, trying to dodge the bullets until she finally tired out and made us go sit on the steps in the front hallway. Now, here's me and Jan, sitting on the steps punished. And this time we really were innocent! Mom is still in the kitchen and she is PISSED. Just then, Jan pinches my arm and says, "A!" (family calls me "A") "...look!!!" There at the front door stretched out in the hot sun streaming through the storm door was Dusty...our old gray alley-turned-house cat. She was cleaning herself as cats do...taking long luxurious strokes with her tongue OF PUD CAKE EMBEDDED IN HER FUR AND PAWS! Dusty was the culprit! The cat ate the cake! So we start calling, Ma -- "Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" "Sissyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy" (Jan called my Mom Sissy) "Look!!!" She comes storming out of the kitchen and we are off the steps pointing at the cat. "Dusty ate the cake." And do you know what this woman says to us? "Don't you blame that poor cat! You all probably fed it to her. Didn't I tell you not to give that cat people food?" No way! We're still on punishment and now for 5 extra minutes because we got up off the step to lie on the cat!!!??? AAARRRGGHHH. But later that night, shock and awe #3 came at the one and only time Mom apologized for a whipping. We had gone to bed. Mom was in the kitchen and hearing peculiar noises from the dining room, she found Dusty back at it hot and heavy. So there....now you know where shock and awe really came from and why Mom always felt too guilty to ever make PUD cake again. Oh and by the way, we never figured out what really happened to that cat. Enjoy!!!

    Is it your birthday? It would be a great time to make chocolate brandy balls. Ok -- any excuse would do to make chocolate brandy balls. My secret? A little sip of Harvey's Bristol Cream on the side. Ok...on the side, in the kitchen, on the back porch...wherever. Enjoy!

    Recipe #236544

    January 28, 2000, is the day my mother crossed over. I miss her terribly but over the years I've learned to pull up my big girl panties and deal. Good for me! Still I think it's appropriate to remember my Mom, her sister (also passed on) and all the women who took on motherhood and kids like me in the 1950s. This recipe should bring on a memory for those of you who are my age, a chuckle to those who are at least 20 years my senior and a look at a wonderfully innocent time for the younger generation. I don't know if folks did this in other parts of the country (or the world for that matter), but if you didn't live on the east coast of the United States when it snowed, you may have missed out on snow ice cream. If a good Nor'easter blizzard hit, your Mom would wake you up early, stuff you into your galoshes (mine were yellow with metal buckles) and send you outside with a bowl to collect snow. You weren't allowed to cheat. No snow from the ground. You had to sit that bowl in a place where it would fill up with fresh snow. Of course by the time you finished playing in the back yard snow, getting thoroughly soaked through, mittens frozen to your fingers from making snow angels, the bowl was brimming over with the white stuff and your Mom was telling you to come in. If you were fortunate enough to have a mud room, you got to strip there but for those of us whose back door entered directly into the kitchen, you had to drop everything practically down to your bloomers on the newspaper your Mom laid at the doorway. So there you are almost buck naked, the blizzard wind is cold on your butt as you lean back against the cold door trying to get off those galoshes while simultaneously trying not to lose you grip on that bowl of snow. But you didn't care. It was coming! Snow ice cream. Man oh man. Your Mom would make it up right in the bowl you brought it and then pour it into those old metal ice cube trays with the handle and freeze it. But meanwhile you got to lick the bowl. This was before the days we worried about samonella poisoning. Raw eggs in any kind of batter didn't mean cooties. It just meant sweet sticky fingers wiping the bowl clean. So here's a memory folks -- snow ice cream -- the way Moms in the 1950s made it. I also included the recipe at the end for the way nutrionists say is safer -- without eggs. I haven't had it in years, yet the feelings, the smells, the sights, everything came flooding back in when I thought of it. Miss ya, Mom! Love you so much.

    Recipe #236580

    um...don't let yours overcook like I did the first time, ok? haha! Making a delicious dessert doesn't have to be hard or time consuming. Just come from the kitchen carrying this recipe with flour on your brow and looking as if you've been baking for hours and the family will worship you. Well, the reality is they'll be too busy enjoying this cobbler to notice you, but that's ok. I'm giving you the recipe for peaches, but try apples if you wish! Just think, cinnamon and vanilla flavoring with apple and nutmeg and almond flavoring for peaches. Got it? It's delish! OH!!! If I catch you using canned fruit I will haunt you and make spooky telepathic noises in your kitchen when you're home alone! Enjoy!!

    Found that on the back of a Cool-Whip label and it is a favourite for potlucks. This recipe is for an 8-inch round, but I normally double it for a 9X13-inch cake.
