This is my grandma's recipe for German Chocolate Cake. This was all of us kid's favorite for birthdays. I made this for my husband on our first date on his birthday, and it's a tradition in our family now. We always use black walnuts, but you can use English walnuts. The hot water sounds weird, but that's the way my family has made it for years.
This is my sis-in-law's Linda's recipe. It's quick, easy, and real good. This recipe is easily made lowfat by using tuna packed in water, light cream cheese and Campbell's lowfat soup. My familie's preferences/changes on this recipe are listed after the baking time on the instructions, as I didn't want to change my sis-in-laws orginal recipe.
This is a blue-ribbon award-winning recipe that my husband cut out of our local newspaper from a recipe contest. I have not made it yet, but I will as soon as I can because DD Loves Pumpkin Pie! Here's what the author, Debbie Grandits, says about it, "Everyone's response was, It's better than pumpkin pie, and this year my phone has been ringing off the wall with requests for the recipe".
This icing is good on any cake, but it is to die for on chocolate! The reason it is called "Mrs. Echard" icing is that it is a Must at every dinner at my mom's church, and it's made by a Wonderful lady there named Virginia Echard.
My mom has made these popcorn balls at Halloween for 40 years. The kids she gave them to then now bring their kids. 4 years ago one brought her grandson and took a picture of him getting a popcorn ball from her. Note: Cook time Is 3 1/2 minutes, even though I put 4 minutes because the "cook time" wouldn't accept the 3 1/2 minutes.
This is rich, but Good. I like that it's hard to do wrong, and that you can also make it with other puddings. Chocolate pudding is delicious in this, as is coconut cream pudding topped with toasted coconut just before serving. It's also good with pitachio pudding for St. Patrick's Day.
This recipe comes from Chef Viet Tran of New York City's and Philadelphia's Le Colonial Restaurants. I posted this in response to a recipe request. I have neither tasted or made this. (Prep time will depend on how long you marinate. Use your own judgement on how much you shrimp you want with this).
