    When looking for a healthier alternative to french fries, I found this in a cookbook titled "1001 short, easy recipes". I made them for the first time a few nights ago. YUMMY and very easy!

    Recipe #483355

    I found this recipe on another cooking site and made it for the first time last week. I think I gained a few pounds because I could not stop eating it! It reminded me of corn fritters but in a casserole form. The original recipe did not include the size of the cans of corn that were required so I just used the size I had on hand and that is how I have written it here.

    Recipe #475340

    This is a simple dessert to prepare but looks fancy and tastes divine. I used the brownie mix that includes chocolate syrup but you could use any one that is intended for an 8x8 pan. I feel that this is best used within 3 days of preparing. Cook time does not include the cooling time for the brownie layer or the chill time for the cheesecake layer. ( If your brownie mix calls for different measurements for water, oil and eggs go ahead and use those instructions for baking the brownie layer.)

    Recipe #475338

    A mostly coconut cake with a carrot cake base. I love the combination of the cream cheese frosting and the coconut on a slightly spicey cake. The cake is not as dense as most carrot cakes and I do not include nuts but you could certainly add them if you wanted. This is a really easy cake to make since it starts with a cake mix, but looks like you really fussed though when all put together covered in coconut.( there is no water added because of the carrots and pinneapple)

    Recipe #474857

    This is a recipe I found one year out of desperation. I could not find any pecans at the store so I had to get walnuts. I found this recipe in an old cookbook of my mothers. It has a totally different taste than a pecan pie and I dont make it as often as I do the pecan one but it is a nice pie and a good use for extra walnuts.

    Recipe #463052

    This is based on a recipe I found on BetterRecipes.com, I changed it a bit to better suit my tastes. Very quick and easy for those busy nights when you dont have time to fuss in the kichen.

    Recipe #463050

    I found this recipe on BetterRecipes.com and recently made it. I changed a few ingredients and also the quantity of noodles it called for to suit my taste. I prefer more of a wet casserole so I used less noodles but you can add or subtract as suits you best.

    Recipe #462915

    I found this recipe in a Magic Chef cookbook from 1936. My picky new boyfriend did not like mine so I thought I would try something really simple. He liked this one but prefered that it be cooked until much drier than I like it, I followed the hour long cooking time the recipe called for and then put his back in for another 15 minutes that way we both were happy. So here is a basic simple recipe for meatloaf, I like it because I almost always have all these ingredients on hand.

    Recipe #461829

    I recently made this for the first time in my new bread machine. I found the recipe in a bread machine cookbook I bought at the goodwill. The author said that she liked it cold but I prefer it hot from the oven and smothered in butter. The dough is a bit sticky, I suggest buttering your hands first before shaping. The bread machine mixes the dough, you do the rest.

    Recipe #453305

    I found this in an old Campbell Soup recipe book when I was looking for something quick to make for dinner. I used lower sodium soup but I am sure it would be just as good with the regular. I found it to be a little bland but my fussy boyfriend really liked it, I would have added some chopped green pepper if only he would eat them! You can season as you like, I have omitted the salt for the dietary restricutions in our household.

    Recipe #448436

    I was looking for a quick and easy cookie recipe last week and came across one in a pillsbury cookbook, unfortunatly I did not have the ingredients on hand that it called for so I substituted what I did have and they were really great. So easy but very good and homemade tasting.

    Recipe #440445

    I found this in a cookbook I bought at a yard sale a few weeks ago and made it to frost a marble cake. It was really creamy and rich, just as the recipe stated. I doubled the recipe because I like a really thick layer of frosting but you could just make it as is and you would still have enough to frost a layer cake. If stored in refrigerator bring to room tempature before serving.

    Recipe #440444

    This is a recipe I found in my Grandmother's old cookbook that I made for the first time last week. I used the crumbs from some left over cornbread muffins, but any soft corn bread crumbs would do.

    Recipe #438816

    I made these last year for Christmas, they were very quick and easy. I put a andes mint chocolate candy in the center of each just as they were out of the oven and swirled with a knife when the candy melted. They were really pretty and froze really well. ( This is from one of those 5 ingredient or less cookbooks)

    Recipe #437323

    This is a recipe of my Mother's. I think it is great to serve with carrots and celery. It also pairs well with fresh broccoli and cauliflower. It is a little something different to dip the vegetables in than the normal sour cream based dips. Cooking time includes chill time.

    Recipe #437280

    I made this for the first time for a church function and it was gone so fast I did not get to try it so I had to make it again just so I could try some, YUM!! I found the recipe in a TOH Holiday cookbook. Cooking time includes chilling time.

    Recipe #436912

    I found this in a Pillsbury cookbook and changed it just a little. It is a great alternative to my regular pecan pie when I want a little something extra, like chocolate. Cooking time includes cooling time.

    Recipe #436911

    I've been making this for quite a few years now, I'm not really sure where the recipe came from. It is a nice dessert for fall, I've served it just sprinkled with powdered sugar or with vanilla glaze or white frosting. After reading the review on this recipe I took out my copy and read it over to be sure everything was correct. I am surprised the reviewers cake came out so badly, I have never had that result. My only suggestion would be to be sure you finely shredded the carrots, perhaps larger shreds create the clumping she refers to.

    Recipe #436899

    I found this on another cooking site last year, I made it for a party at my sister's. It is incredibly good and so easy to make. I didn't feel it kept well for more than a few days so plan to serve it to a large enough group so it is all gobbled up fast. I made the cake layers a day ahead and found they were very easy to slice.

    Recipe #436895

    This is my Mother's recipe. We always have this whenever we make a holiday ham dinner. It was a big favorite of my late husbands, he would lick the bowl I mixed them in even before baking them. I always have to double this because I have often run out of them with everyone taking seconds and thirds. This can easily be made a day ahead and baked on the day you serve it.
