    I got this off the food network site. I haven't tried these but my hubby loves fish and chips. He grew up overseas and used to be able to get them regularly. I showed him several recipes, including zaar ones, and this was the one he said to make!

    Recipe #123057

    Origially featured on a 1952 Better Homes and Gardens cover, it's been perfected over the years. I hope you'll agree that this version is the moistest, richest, "chocolateiest" cake ever.

    My daughter's boyfriend's mom gave her a cookbook that was created by the Houston Ballet for their Nutcracker Christmas Market in 1984. The recipes in the book were submitted by directors, choreographers, and dancers in the Houston Ballet that year. This recipe was submitted by Jeanne Doornbos, Soloist.

    Recipe #292032

    Apparently this dish is named in honour of a carters wife, who travelled everyday to Rome from the countryside with her donkey laden with fruit, vegetables and wine. I don't know how true that is, but it's a good simple dish made with humble ingredients, and it's delicious.

    Recipe #309164

    This is a spicy salad made up of apples, pecans and bleu cheese in a balsamic vinegar dressing.

    A favorite of peanut butter fans! From What's Cooking Magazine.

    Recipe #199289

    After half a bottle of wine, you'd be drunk too! Time does not include marinating overnight.

    Recipe #283040

    This is a simple and versatile recipe. It lends well to any type of white fish, such as: perch, tilapia, whitefish, halibut, etc. It might even work well with salmon, but I haven't tried that yet. I love the crusty, delicious almond coating. If you can't find Panko breadcrumbs, you could try regular bread crumbs. I like to serve this alongside wild rice and a nice salad for a simple and pretty healthy meal.

    Recipe #252135

    This is out of my old WW cookbook called 123 Success Recipe Collection, dated 1997.This side dish is packed with flavor and color. Serve it with chicken breasts marinated in a teriyaki-soy mixture for a speedy, delicious supper.

    Recipe #302772

    This is a copycat recipe of the Western brand dressing. It's better than the store brand and has no high fructose corn syrup in it. Note that it makes a quart, so you could cut it in half if needed.

    Recipe #189191

    This is a delicious and easy recipe. My Aunt makes it every year for Christmas. It is easy and very very addicting. Make sure you have a large container for mixing and storage! Enjoy!!

    Recipe #258563

    This is a meal by itself. To butterfly the chicken breast, place the breast flat onto a work surface, and with one hand on top to hold it in place, slice through the middle horizontally to cut almost in half and open out flat. To peel and chop a lemon, cut a slice from the top and the bottom of the fruit. Cut away the rind, pith and skin, working from top to bottom, following the curve of the fruit. Slice the peeled fruit crosswise into 1/4 inch slices and then stack and chop the slices finely. Please note, cooking time indicated includes marinating time and roasting time of garlic for garlic mayo.

    Recipe #230768

    This recipe comes from Tangier Island, in Southern Maryland/Virginia, a serene little island at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, actually part of Virginia. When you arrive on the dock at Tangier, you are received on the dock to wonder about this fishing/crabing/oystering town. Along the walkways, and small streets, women type out their recipes, handed down from generation to generation and place them on a plywood board in plastic bags. I picked this recipe in a little packet, wrapped carefully in plastic wrap, typed on an old typewriter and have loved this little recipe ever since. The cost for these simple 6 hand-typed recipes were $1.00 and was self serve. This recipe is a part of a culture that has stood the test of time, and the folks that live within this island remain steadfast in tradition. Basically, Tangier Island represents what should be a prosperous, but simple way of living, bringing oysters and crabs to the people of Maryland and Virginia. This recipe speaks of this island when life took a breath and enjoyed the riches, and bountiful crustations of our beautiful Chesapeake Bay. When I prepare this recipe, I will always be reminded of this wonderful place and a wonderful time. Serve on crackers, or crusty warmed bread. *Note* this recipe is not a *dip*. As a previous reviewer noted, this compares more to baked crab, a la Maryland. In Maryland we serve baked crab/crab cake sometimes on bread/crackers. I hope you enjoy this simple but historical taste of Maryland, and if not, then send it over here to Longmeadow Farm...we will be glad to devour it with gusto!! Really, enjoy.

    Alright, you caught me.... I hate using store bought mixes but I had some Bisquick in my pantry and needed a treat real fast one night when I ran out of flour so this is what I came up with!

    Recipe #271830

    Just four ingredients! I had fresh strawberries that were getting soft, so I froze them. I had a leftover single-serving cup of mandarin oranges in juice, so I froze that too. I placed the frozen strawberries and frozen mandarin oranges plus their juice into the blender with a bit of cold water. This is a recipe I just created tonight. I was going to add some frozen (from fresh) blackberries, but my bf had expressed his desire to use them to make a blackberry shake, and there weren't enough blackberries for us both to share. Oh well! I just finished making this right before I completed my recipe submission and imo it's really good! It's very refreshing and tastes fresh too. I used about a tsp of honey and it's perfect. This reminds me of a Dole Frozen Whole Fruit Bar, except it's drinkable. There are also some nice pieces of strawberry left in it that make this really pretty and yummy. Be careful, this really will give you a brain freeze! Lol. :) This really doesn't need blackberries in it, I think it's great as-is, but the blackberries would add a different flavor, depending on what you are after. This one tastes predominantly strawberry with mandarin orange sneaking as a great background flavor. Edited to add: I bet you can make this a Brain Freeze with a Kick by adding an ounce of your favorite plain or flavored vodka or plain or flavored rum to this. :D ETA: A clarification on the mandarin oranges. In most stores in the canned fruit and applesauce aisle, there are a variety of fruit companies that sell packages of single-serving, individually sealed plastic cups of mixed or single fruits in light syrup or juice. I had one of these single-serving plastic cups of mandarin orange sections in light syrup or juice that I needed to use up. I froze the entire cup and contents. The cup the mandarin sections were in stood up well to freezing. When I created this recipe, I opened up the plastic cup and dumped the frozen contents (sections and syrup) into the blender along with the frozen strawberries. I note this b/c there was some confusion with another reviewer. I'm sorry for not being more clear. :) If you cannot find these single-serve cups, and you don't mind opening a can of mandarin sections in light syrup or juice and putting them into a freezer-proof container and freezing solid, that will work too.

    Recipe #295492

    Most kids love 2-minute noodles and corn fritters so in this recipe, adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Recipes website, the two have been combined to make yummy kid-friendly pancakes. If you want to sneak in some different vegetables, you could probably get away with this the second or third time you make these! For an adult version, perhaps add bacon, garlic, and serve with sour cream and lemon wedges.

    Recipe #320442

    We love these orange pops year round!

    Recipe #281592

    Chicken tenders can also be use instead of pork. And use a plum sauce instead of the mayonnaise.

    Recipe #255477

    According to John Shields, Mrs. Morrison was the housekeeper at an Episcopal Church in Baltimore for many years and made this cake a staple at generations of church events. If you want to sweeten/fancy it up, add whipped cream or ice cream and strawberries. I think it's quite nice just as it is.
