I'm hoping to do more cooking, using the crockpot on days when I know I won't feel like making dinner. I found this recipe in Fix It and Forget It Recipes for Entertaining and decided to post it here as a reminder to give it a try. The cookbook credits Yvonne Boettger from Harrisonburg, VA as the source of the recipe.
I want to start cooking more, and crockpot recipes remove the excuse that I'm too busy. Since I never seem to open up my crockpot recipe book (Fix It and Forget It Recipes for Entertaining), I decided to post this here as a reminder that I need to try this one. This recipe was credited in the book to Ruth Hershey of Paradise, PA.
I found this recipe in a dessert cookbook that only includes recipes with 5 ingredients or less that can be made in 10 minutes. I haven't made this yet, but I never keep chocolate pudding in the house and figure it will come in handy one of these days. Since I'm trying to cook more from scratch and avoiding packaged goods with ingredients that I can't pronounce, this one seems like a keeper.
This recipe is on the cover of the the 1998 Pillsbury Bake-off Quick & Easy cookbook. It looks really good, and though I haven't tried it, I plan to make it soon. The original recipe called for milk chocolate chips, but I like semi-sweet much better so I switched them in the recipe. I also plan to use chopped nuts on top rather than pecan halves as a garnish on top.
This recipe comes from The Original Vidalia Onion Cookbook that I received years ago with a gift box of Vidalia onions. While I haven't made these muffins yet, I love muffins and this sounds like something that would be great with a steak dinner. I'm posting it here since I always forget to dig through my cookbooks now that there are so many great recipes online.
These just sound like something I would enjoy with a nice meat or chicken dinner. The recipe comes from The Original Vidalia Onion Cookbook, which was included in a box of onions I received as a gift years ago.
I bought a recipe book by a local women's group on my recent trip to Belize (Silly Bug & Bittle Recipes) and this one sounds like something I would like. I love bread pudding and this looks easy and tasty. The original recipe called for condensed milk but wikipedia says that it's the same thing as sweetened condensed milk. The recipe did not include baking time. I'll update the recipe after I make it or someone leaves the baking time in their review.
I bought a recipe book by a local women's group on my recent trip to Belize (Silly Bug & Bittle Recipes) and this one sounds like something I would like. I'll be making it without the green pepper, but left it in the recipe as many people probably would like it that way.
It was actually my search for a substitution for the dry cottage cheese that my Grandma used in her blintzes that got me to register for Recipezaar. After the fish market closed that carried the dry cottage cheese she used (crumbly like feta cheese), I've never been able to find it again. I finally found the soft Farmer's cheese she said was an acceptable substitute at a local international grocery store. If you can't find either type of cheese, you can substitute ricotta cheese but it won't taste exactly the same. My Grandma also insisted that you must use a blender as directed for making the crepe batter. This recipe takes a while, so it's worth it to make extra for the freezer. While most people eat blintzes for breakfast, my Grandma always served them as a side dish for special family dinners.
When I moved out on my own, I asked for the family Kreplach recipe. My Mom ended up giving me her taped up 1954 Settlement Cookbook with handwritten notes in the margins, so I'm guessing a bit on this recipe. My grandmother would save the roast beef & brisket scraps in the freezer until she had enough, and then would make a batch of Kreplach and serve it as a side dish with dinner. It would also make a great appetizer. Imagine a meat ravioli with a slightly crispy noodle dough without any sauce. Many people also serve them in hot chicken soup (in this case it is a bit like a beef Chinese potsticker). I am totally guessing on yield and time since I have never actually made this myself, but will edit the recipe based on reviewer comments or when I make it myself.
I'm not a fan of any of the desserts my family has always made for Passover, but this one I like. I've found that it doesn't make enough batter to really cover all of the apples on the top layer, but it still works for me. Maybe a more creative cook could find a way to adjust the ingredients for a bit more batter.
