This cake is so good it should be illegal! It's very easy to make, just throw all the ingredients into the mixing bowl and let the beaters do the work. I got this from Betty Crocker's Cookbook 1978, my husband's kitchen bible from his bachelor days.
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! This cake is almost like gingerbread, with a firm texture and so fragrant; but the pumpkin flavor definitely comes through! This recipe is from Bon Appetit Magazine, November, 1990. It indicates 12 servings, but you can easily cut 16 - 18 slices. This cake is large, and you can freeze leftover slices. Allow yourself about 50 minutes to an hour for prep time.
Meat, potatoes and vegetables all in one pan! I had a large veal shoulderblade chop which looked more like a steak than a chop, and I decided to braise it in the oven. The ingredients went together very quickly and this came out tender and moist. There was more than enough potatoes and zucchini for two, but we did finish the veal. Yum!
I entered this dessert at my church's Harvest Fest Pie Bakeoff, and the judges created a category right there and then just for this torte so they could give it a blue ribbon! My friend, Nancy, shared this recipe with me. For such an elegant presentation, it's very easy to make. In this version, you don't even need to mix the apples before putting them on the filling.
I like biting into a deviled egg and it bites me back! These measurements are approximate. I actually use more cayenne pepper and horseradish than here, but I needed to get a handle on the amounts for sharing my recipe, and these proportions are good. I have not included the cooking time for boiling the eggs.
This dish is reminiscent of my Grandma's awesome Austrian cooking. I got the idea for this dish from a Mr. Food pressure-cooker recipe. I changed some ingredients and adapted it for crockpot. I prefer a slightly fattier cut of pork because it comes out so tender and flavorful. I've served this for dinner parties, and people always ask for a second helping. I serve this with egg noodles and applesauce. True comfort food!
Real quick and easy to make! I got this recipe from an acquaintance at a boardgame night. The original recipe called for walnuts, but I think pecans are a more complementary flavor. These cranberry bars are delicious, with a delightful balance of sweet and tart. Don't count on leftovers - these moist squares get gobbled right up!
