Recipe #340691

Whenever you need sour cream in a recipe and have none in the refrigerator, try this.

Recipe #425467

This is the most delicious salad - fresh and wonderful-tasting. FYI, lettuce can very much be a part of any greek salad - if you want it to. We like lettuce in my family and I often add it. It would not be 'authentic' in a Horiatiki (village) salad, but who cares?

From The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. This is great for parties. We have really enjoyed this recipe. Great with chips or veggies!

Recipe #57872

This is one spice that I do not normally have on hand. Most of my recipes do not call for it, but sometimes you just need it. This is a recipe for a substitution that works great. Below are two measurements. The normal formula is equal amounts of all three, but if you like the cloves and nutmeg less predominant, use the lesser amount. Both will have the flavor of allspice. See note at the bottom.

Recipe #362600

This essentially Hidden Valley's Ranch Dressing and Seasoning mix. I don't like to use that stuff because (last I checked) it has msg in it.

I love to use buttermilk but it is so expensive. So, after some research... I started making my own. Measurements can vary. Use approximately 1 part buttermilk to 3 parts milk.

Recipe #312114

I occasionally come across recipes calling for cajun seasoning. I've tried many different recipes for it, but most used way too much black and/or white pepper for our tastes. I tried this one and we love it, especially because it also uses sweet paprika.

Recipe #305576

This is the method used by restaurants to whip butter to make it easier to spread, and for economical reasons to make butter go a lot further too. You can make it fancy like restaurants do by putting this mixture into a cake decorating tube with a fancy tip and pipe it into small dishes for individual servings. I have even used a plastic bag, cut off the corner, placed a fancy decorating tip in the corner, added the butter mixture and piped it into tiny dishes I got at the dollar store. One for each dinner guest is a nice touch. I store the whipped butter in a glass covered container on the counter top in cooler weather. In warmer weather I store it in the refrigerator and bring it to room temperature before using.

Recipe #225178

This is an incredibly good clone of the real thing. A friend emailed this recipe to me.

Recipe #24952

This homemade chocolate syrup is just as good as you-know-who's, and a LOT cheaper. Serving size is 1 Tablespoon

Recipe #22877

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

I was in a search for a great cocoa mix that tasted very similar to the store bought kind. I tried a couple of recipes but they just weren't it. So, I combined a few of them together and came up with this! My family just thinks it is fabulous. You can substitute different flavors of pudding but we find Chocolate fudge works the best!

Recipe #109322

I don't know where I got this, but it works. The whipped cream will keep for a week in the fridge without deflating... great for party make-ahead.

Recipe #74805

A great spread for biscuits, but also fabulous as a filling for cakes, pies and tarts! The only one I use. This is fairly tart, as I like it on biscuits, so if using as a cake filling, I would up the sugar to 1 or 1 1/4 cups.

Recipe #190574

Here is an all-purpose baking mix that I make up for easy baking. I got this several years ago from my mother in law, and it is fantastic! My husband does not like the taste of Bisquik or other store bought biscuit mixes, but he loves this one, and we save money making our own. It only takes a few minutes to make it up, and then you have it ready to go whenever you need it! Use it in in place of anything that calls for biscuit mix or use it in your own recipe, by using 1 1/2 cups of mix for each cup of flour called for in your recipe. The mix already has baking powder,salt, fat, and milk.

Recipe #165761

My Pastors wife fixed this for a Mission Banquet, I couldn't stop eating it, it was a good thing everyone at the table ate it too, 'cause it is strong. It sounds like a strange mix of ingredients, but trust me it works. It will keep vampires and anything else away. The Yield is approximate

Recipe #189941

Found this recipe on the molasses bottle. Good to have around if you need brown sugar.
