    Use this recipe to clean your coffee maker. A clean machine makes better tasting coffee!

    Recipe #156833

    I saw this today on Paula Deen's show and HAD to try it since I had almost a quart of yogurt. It works. And I liked it better than using just yogurt. Cooking time is refrigeration time, preparation is time for butter to cool.

    Although the ingredients sound unprepossessing; it is technique that makes this THE Salad. Be sure to pay attention to details to bring this to Olympian heights. Quantities give here assume that the salad is a major part of the meal, as in hearty bread-soup-salad dinner. If the meal has more courses, scale portion sizes down accordingly. THE Salad is at its height only very briefly, and after the moment has passed, it’s passed and nothing in the world can bring it back…. Everyone should be sitting down and ready to eat before you start tossing THE Salad. And get the salad plates out of the freezer only as the salad is completed. This recipe is more of a technique with some fabulous secrets I learned from The Dairy Hollow House Cookbook. I never thought I would use a recipe to make a simple green salad….but I am so glad I did. I hope you are too! Enjoy!

    From my "Heart Healthy Cookbook" of delicious healthy recipes from Edina, MN in 1995. Make 9, 10 ounce cans of soup. This is much less expensive and contains far less sodium than canned soups. Add sautéed chopped mushrooms, chopped celery, or bits of cooked chicken to resemble the cream soup you usually use.

    Recipe #126969

    I always seem to not have buttermilk on hand when I need it. I've used the powdered milk and vinegar version of this which works well, but today I didn't have any powdered milk! This substitution that I found on the internet works just as well.

    Recipe #124413

    A method I have been using for over 30 years, you will never boil corn in just water again once you try this, this method produces a very tender and sweet corn on the cob, I promise! --- do not add in any salt to the water as it will make the corn tough

    Recipe #121897

    Back in the Dark Ages when I was a little girl there was no microwave popcorn. There weren't even microwaves (gasp)! Mom actually used to make popcorn on the stove. Here's how, courtesy of the Fannie Farmer Cookbook.

    Recipe #119045

    I have been poaching eggs in the microwave for many years. For me this is the best way to prepare poached eggs for 2. It is quick, easy and almost foolproof. Please make sure you use a toothpick to pierce the yolk before cooking or it will explode!

    Recipe #118761

    I got this in my email today from The Veggie Table, and it is a recipe adapted from one credited to the cookbook, "How it all vegan!" I haven't tried this one.

    Recipe #118182

    Freezing is a simple and excellent way to preserve fresh culinary herbs. Packing in ice cube trays makes it easy to always have fresh herbs on hand, adding fresh herb flavor to soups, sauces, and drinks. Some people prefer to freeze in a good quality olive oil, I prefer the boiling water method, which is listed in this recipe here today. You can freeze herbs individually or in combinations of other herbs.

    Recipe #111461

    Found a recipe on the internet and adjusted to fit my GF/CF/SoyFree/Low Sugar Diet

    Recipe #111373

    The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.

    Recipe #108522

    Out of pumpkin pie spice and only need a little to get you through until you buy more? From Hamilton Beach web site a few years back.

    Recipe #107059

    This is great for injuries and keeping beverages cool.

    Recipe #91931

    This is not so much a recipe as it is technique. Get ready for some of the best fries you've ever eaten! The oregano is a must, IMHO, but if you haven't got it, do without. Your loss.

    I don't always have cake flour on hand, and I'm betting many others don't either. I have discovered that this substitute works very, very well. Easy too, and it uses pantry staples!

    Recipe #87689

    Cleaning your microwave couldn't get any easier than this!

    Recipe #82412

    Recipe #81994

    I find this to be the perfect recipe for egg substitute. The texture and flavor are just right. I found this in Taste of Home magazine several years ago.

    Recipe #81194

    Serve on buttered toast for a "regular" Sunday breakfast or make Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine for a "special" occasion! The eggs should be cold & as fresh as possible.
