I got this recipe from a good friend and have fixed it several times, it is always a big hit. Notes: Prep time is actual hands on time, it needs to sit overnight and take out of refrigerator 30 min. before baking. I have fixed this without cubing bread and it works fine. Also, you may wish to decrease cream cheese to 1 package instead of two. I have fixed it both ways. I think 1 package is plenty.
I got this recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine in 1979, and have been making them ever since. They are the easiest biscuits to make and turn out perfectly every time. Bonus, there's no messy shortening to mess with!
This fudge recipe is from Taste of Home magazine. I have been making it for several years and everyone just loves it! It makes a lot and is great for gift giving at the holidays. For gifts, I usually pour into 3 separate disposable baking tins (the biscuit size).
Once you try this you'll never buy canned cranberry sauce again! This recipe is from the book "By Request" from Pasta & Co. a great store in Seattle, WA. If you're ever in the area look it up and stop in.
This is my favorite recipe for Phad Thai. It comes from "Quick & Easy Thai Cuisine" by Judy Lew and Chef Rut. I've tried many other recipes but none are as easy or as good as this one. I highly recommend the optional ingredients if you fix this. The 3 hours prep. time is soaking the rice noodles.
I got the original recipe from Cooking Club of America. I changed the amounts due to my personal tastes as you may do. It doesn't HAVE to be refrigerated overnight, the only time I do that is just for my convienience. Amounts on salad ingredients may be adjusted or left out according to what you like. This is a great pasta salad and I'm always asked for the recipe when I take it to a potluck. Try it, you won't be sorry!8 (1 1/2-cup) servings.
This recipe is from the Creme de Colorado Cookbook. It is a very easy salad to fix with an unusual flavor. I always have requests for the recipe when I take it to a potluck. The dressing and rice can be prepared ahead of time and combined with the final "fresh" ingredients added just before serving. It can be served in a bowl, or in individual "lettuce cups".
Want an extra special dessert for someone special? This is it! It sounds complicated, but the steps can be broken down and prepared over 2 - 3 days, which makes it pretty easy. I got the recipe from one of my cooking magazines, I don't remember which one, but this is my all time favorite chocolate cake. I'm not sure about the prep. time, as I always spread it out over 2 or 3 days.
The dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated for a couple of days. This would be great with grilled chicken or seafood. This is so good, I plan on having this one even when cranberries aren't in season! Prep time is not counting time to cook wild rice which can be done ahead.
This recipe comes from "Simply Classic" by The Junior League of Seattle. It is great for hot summer days, fix it in the morning and dinner is ready whenever you are. I double the amount of currants called for and sometimes leave out the chicken, it is equally good with or without it. It says it serves 6, but I find it serves much more than that, it makes a large amount! The one hour cooking time is for the minimum chill time.
