This chicken pot pie was created one night when the pantry was close to bare. I had some leftover chicken, frozen mixed veggies and basic pantry ingredients but not much else. We now have this several times per month all year round.
Canned pork and beans (called "baked beans" in the South no matter if they are straight from a can or actually baked) are loaded with all kinds of chemicals. Here is a healthier version using canned white beans. This makes great beanie-weanies using a decent hot dog like Hebrew National All Beef. They freeze well too for stashing away quick lunches! I created this recipe after my kids begged for baked beans in the middle of the summer. I couldn't bear to heat up the living area with the oven so this recipe was born!
This is our adaptation of the original Eagle Brand Magic Cookie Bar recipe. We have adjusted it to suit our dietary needs and personal taste preference. The original recipe calls for a graham cracker crust and pecans as part of the topping. We prefer the pecan crust instead. Enjoy!
This recipe is from my husband's parents and is incredible. The original recipe was chocolate and it tasted like a Wendy's Frosty. You can achieve this by using chocolate milk instead of plain whole milk. I have used any combination of half-n-half, whipping cream and different kinds of plain milk (whole, 2% and 1%) however, the original recipe without variations makes the creamiest. We add fresh pureed strawberries in the spring and peaches in the summer. Enjoy!
Found on CakeCentral.com while researching the original recipe. I am personally not sure about this icing. I may try the other roux one. Originally posted by descakes. "This is the original Waldorf-Astoria Red Velvet Cake recipe and a huge favorite with family and clients alike! The Cream Cheese/Mascarpone Frosting is to die for:) I know it’s going to sound odd but give it a try and you’ll be delightfully surprised!"
NOTE: I (cookfromscratch) tried this recipe yesterday and was sorely disappointed. It was a good recipe, but not lacking the flavor for Red Velvet.It was a lot of trouble for a good chocolate cake. The red color was also lacking, however, I did use natural food color due to allergies. I am going to keep looking. for a natural Red Velvet recipe.
My kids are allergic to artificial flavors and colors. I am taking some cake decorating courses to try to make more professional looking cakes for them. Piping Gel is one thing had not been able to find an alternative for I went looking for recipes. This one was posted on the Feingold Group on Yahoo by Covey Denton.
Original description from creator: The colors (that are normally muted in regular icing) really popped! I also tried it with an approved juice and the color was really a vivid purple and vivid red. I just omitted the sugar when I used the juice. Just thought I would share a neat recipe and a fun alternative to icing.

This recipe is an adaptation of several recipes and the way I prefer to have my ranch dressing. Add more milk as needed for a thinner dressing. Chill at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend. Will keep about a week in the refrigerator.
This is an adaptation on a recipe that was in a cookbook I received when I first married. It was one of our favorites and one the first ones I adapted after getting more comfortable in the kitchen as a young bride.
My father-in-law likes "cat-head" biscuits. For those of you from outside of the deep south, a "cat-head biscuit" is simply a southern buttermilk biscuit the size of a cat-head. He told me, "That way, it doesn't fall apart when you slice it for (homemade) figs (preserves.) I like to bake them with the sides touching so that they are soft on the edges. If you prefer a crunchier biscuit, place them about 2 inches apart on a flat stone/pan.
Got this years and years ago and "lost" it in my files. Found it last summer and have been using it ever since. Best with fresh herbs but I use dried when my garden is dormant. Use fresh garlic though! It isn't the same without it! The original recipe called for pureeing all the ingredients in a food processor. We like it better unprocessed with petite diced tomatoes. We also add 1 lb ground beef before simmering. My family is very carnivorous!
My MIL got these from her student assistant years ago and we have been making them ever since! My husband and I fight over them when she would send them to us in a care package when we didn't make it home for the holidays. Now I make them as well and we still fight over them! I bake them on my baking stones which makes them softer. If using a metal cookie sheet they will be harder.
A super easy, super quick caramel corn recipe.
You can make microwave popcorn without all the junk! Place 1/4 c of popcorn kernels in a paper bag and turning the top down a few times. Pop on the popcorn setting of your microwave. Listen carefully and remove when the popping slows. Over time you will be able to tell how long you need to pop it.
