    I got this recipe from a Gourmet Cooking Class that I took years ago. Sometimes I add chunks of cooked chicken and cooked broccoli pieces to my sauce. I usually will triple the recipe when I make it. Serving size is approximate.

    Recipe #276274

    This cake is really moist and is a great way to use the apples up after apple picking in the fall. My family loves this cake.

    Recipe #322939

    This pie is not to sweet and has a rich flavor to it. I was always asked to make this pie for family Thanksgiving dinners because everyone said it was the best Apple Pie ever. This pie freezes well. Make sure to put tin foil on oven rack to catch any juices that overflow so they won't drip on the oven and burn and fill your kitchen with smoke. Use which ever pie pastry dough that you like. Makes a generous 10" pie.

    Recipe #198945

    My Aunt Nan used to make this cheese ball for Thanksgiving and Christmas when the family got together. It is very addictive and so easy to make.

    Recipe #322665

    This is the recipe that has taken the internet by storm. Kiss Kiss posted the link for this recipe on 1/29/09 on the Request A Recipe Forum. The recipe did not mention what type of Italian Sausage so I would use the one you like. Here is the link. I thought I would post the recipe ingredients and directions in a recipe form to make it easier to read. Thank you so much Kiss Kiss...............Debbie Click for a demo on how to make this.

    Recipe #353471

    This is the recipe I grew up with. It is a very basic comfort meal. I added the prime rib bone because I had it and thought I would use it up so I just threw it in the stockpot. This makes a lot but you can reduce it very easily. My family loves it when I make this. The key to this recipe is to cook it for a long time on low until the meat is fork tender and the fresh vegetables are cooked through, if you serve it before the meat and vegetables are ready the meat will be tough and the vegetables hard. Another key to this recipe is to use fresh vegetables which really add flavor. I like my stew to be on the thick side and not like a soup, you can make it as thick or thin as you want by adjusting the flour.

    Recipe #357260

    This recipe is for good old fashioned Boston Baked Beans. You can use Pea Beans or Navy Beans. You can't be in a hurry when making these. The beans should not be watery at all but on the thick side when finished so be careful how much water you add. Cook time does not include soaking beans overnight. These are great for a Saturday night meal in the Fall and Winter served with hot dogs and home fries. If you really want to make the meal complete then serve it with Boston Brown Bread.

    Recipe #323000

    I got this recipe from Maine Favorite Restaurants And Special Places Cook Book. They closed their restaurant in South Portland, Maine but still have their Dover, New Hampshire restaurant open last time I knew. A great place for seafood.

    Recipe #353464

    I got this recipe from a gourmet cooking class that I took years ago. It makes a beautiful presentation and is wonderful for cocktail parties or around the holidays. Prep time does not include refrigeration time.

    Recipe #323017

    This recipe is from Keith Young who won the "throwdown for Chicken Cacciatore" with Bobby Flay. It is sooo good and even better the next day. I doubled the recipe using 22 chicken thighs and doubled the rest of the ingredients. I left out the hot pepper flakes because I don't like them and served it over fettuccine. I doubled it so I could freeze some for another meal. My family loved this recipe and it is now my go to recipe for cacciatore. I baked mine in a large catering pan for about and hour uncovered at 375 after doing all the prep work on the top of the stove.

    Recipe #407976

    My family loves this. I'm not sure where I got this. I found it on a scrap piece of paper in my recipe files.

    Recipe #322941

    This dip is so addicting, we eat this with Tostito tortilla chips. You can keep it warm in a mini crock pot. Not sure of the exact amount it makes so I'm just guessing. I got this recipe from a good friend Debbie. I melt my cheese in the microwave at 50% power. Be prepared that everyone is going to want this recipe!

    Recipe #276260

    I got this recipe from Cooking Class Chinese Cookbook. This recipe tastes exactly like the pork in Chinese restaurants. My family loved it. I used it in my recipe for Recipe#186806. The meat was so tender and juicy. I baked mine for 45 minutes and didn't baste it at all, I was busy cooking other Chinese food.

    Recipe #348288

    Everytime I make this everyone wants a copy of the recipe. This is truly a comfort food for my family and it is so easy to make.

    Recipe #322993

    This recipe is from Junior's restaurant in Brooklyn, NY cookbook. I used 1 bag of preshredded coleslaw mix, 1 cup of mayonnaise but the same amount of vinegar, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper. This coleslaw was so good and creamy, we love garlic. It is best to make this the day before to give it time to get nice and creamy. Cook time of 24 hours is the marinating time.

    Recipe #359853

    This recipe is for OAMC; you can reduce the amount very easily. I tried to measure the best I could as well as give prep and cook times. The oil should be about 2 inches deep in whatever pan you use to fry the cutlets in. If I have leftover coating mix I use it to make homemade onion rings. It is best to set up an assembly line when making this and get all the cutlets breaded before starting to fry because the frying process does not take long. Depending on how fast your oil gets dirty you might have to change it before all the cutlets are cooked.

    Recipe #356321

    I wanted to make a pasta salad so I used a little bit of this from different recipes as well as a little bit of that to come up with a recipe that had the ingredients that my family love's - thus this recipe was created and has now become a keeper. My family inhaled this and it is almost gone over night. I just guessed on the serving amount, it makes a lot. Prep time is approximate and does not include refrigeration over night. If I had a green pepper I would have added that as well.

    Recipe #324874

    I finally tried to measure as best as I could the ingredients to make my sauce. This recipe makes a lot because I make it for OAMC and freeze in smaller portions. The key to this recipe is to make sure you cook it long and slow and until the spareribs are tender and falling off the bone, about 6 hours. I got this recipe from an old Italian woman aout 30 years ago whose name I don't remember.

    Recipe #358521

    I used to make my own meatballs for this soup and buy regular spinach and tear off the leaves until I made it this way which is so good. My family requests this soup all the time in the winter, it is a comfort food to them.

    Recipe #322671

    First let me say this recipe is not for the person who is on a diet! It is loaded with fat and is a comfort food. Sometimes I add a can of mushrooms to the recipe. You can also sprinkle parmesean cheese over the top of vegetables at the end of cooking time. You can use larger zucchini but depending on the size of the zucchini you might want to cut the slices in quarters. I have been making this for my family for years and they love it!
