    I just came across this in a cookbook, so have not tried it yet. I did not see anything like it on the site so decided to share. You can use this with pork chops, chicken, fish or veggies (broccoli & cauliflower). I am posting the recipe as it is in the book, but think I will cut the salt in half for sure. You can add some parmesan cheese to this as well. Store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months.

    Recipe #441777

    This is another recipe from Judith Fertig's book, 200 Fast & Easy Artisan Breads. I have not made it, but am posting it to go with the gluten-free recipes I am posting by request. For a gluten-free diet, make sure the flavorings you use are gluten-free. Use the glaze right away on cinnamon rolls, coffee cakes, tea rings or even pound cakes or angel food cakes. You will get a hint of sweetnes & flavor. Do not store this glaze as it will harden and may get lumpy. I have included the variations in the directions, so don't be alarmed by the length of the directions. It is a simple 3 step recipe, measure, mix, & use.

    There have been all kinds of recipes out there over the years for a Bisquick like mix. Most have used shortening, and of course we have all been trying to avoid the hydrogenated products. I worked at this for a while to come up with a recipe that I was happy with. Make sure your baking powder is fresh to get the best quality when you bake with this mix. I have never used more than about 3 cups of whole wheat flour in the mix. I think it would end up being too heavy if you use to much whole wheat flour. You can use this mix in any recipe that calls for Bisquick. I have never tried it with powdered buttermilk, I would think you would need to add a bit of baking soda if you try that. You should store this in the fridge. The cooking time is actually the time to mix it all together.

    I saw a recipe for a caramel apple upsidedown cake one day and thought why not top a nice hot bowl of oatmeal with caramel & apples. A great idea was born. You can use whatever type of apple you prefer, we usually have Macs in the house. If you can get a HoneyCrisp apple it is fabulous. I prefer to eat this without milk. I will top it with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt some days. You could use table cream or half & half instead of heavy cream if you want to cut the fat content down.

    Recipe #449597

    I just found this recipe on another site this morning. One of our forum hosts has recently been diagnosed as having celiac disease, and asked me to post it here. I have made some minor adjustments to it, nothing to serious, just enhance the flavour a bit. I might try some chipotle chili, or smoked paprika as well. To get a flavour similar to Red Lobster add 1/2 tsp garlic powder to the dough. I am not sure if Old Bay seasoning is gluten free or not, but I think most of the copycat recipes for Red Lobster also contain Old Bay seasoning. You should be able to sub any gluten free flour for the almond flour. You can also sub any combo of cheeses you prefer, cheddar with blue, gruyere, mozz & parmesan combined, how about some smoked cheese, the possibilities are endless. I am not familiar with gluten free techniques, but if it is possible, I would be tempted to use the food processor to mix this all together, I use a cookie scoop to get uniform sized biscuits or crackers.

    This is adapted from one of Canadian LIving's Best Recipes Ever. It is a lot faster to make than some of the slow cooked glazed carrot recipes. We had these for dinner one night with rice, peas and sweet & sour ribs. They would be great to serve dinner guests. They will think you spent ages working on the dish, when in reality you only need to stir them several times near the end of cooking. If you have children who will look at the carrots & say "What are those funny leaves in there? I AM NOT EATING THAT" just leave the thyme out. You could use dried thyme leaves or ground thyme if you want to, just reduce the amount to about 1/2 tsp ground, or 3/4 - 1 tsp dried leaves. I think this would be great with some lemon thyme in the summer. If you use fresh thyme, garnish your serving dish with a whole sprig of thyme. I hope you enjoy them.

    Another copycat recipe I found somewhere. From The original recipe called for butter to fry the french toast in. I find it is not needed when you cook this on a nonstick grill or in a well seasoned cast iron frying pan. I have increased the amount of cinnamon in it, and added some nutmeg as well. You can make this up and freeze it for a quick breakfast, pop a couple of slices in the toaster to reheat. I normally use bread that is cut about 3/4" thick. If you let your bread soak in the mixture you will not get as many servings. You will also have to watch that it is cooked through to avoid the risk of salmonella from the eggs. Serve with your favorite syrups, fresh fruit and whipped cream, or a warm fruit sauce.

    This is a recipe my Mom used to make for Christmas gift giving. You can use any kind of nuts you want. It is particularly good with pecans or cashews. Make sure to do some peanuts this way as well, use blanched peanuts so you dont have the skins collecting the candied mixture in the bottom of the dish. You can make separate batches of different nuts, then mix them together after they have cooled. It is very important to use unsalted nuts. If there is any salt your mixture will not candy properly. These were done in a 600 watt microwave. With a higher wattage oven you will likely have to cook these at about 5 or 6 for the power level. As all microwaves cook differently it is a good idea to start with a batch of peanuts. If your sugar mixture starts to brown rather than crystalize you may have some salt in the nuts or the power level is too high. When cooked at the correct power level these nuts will have a lovely white crystalized coating on them. These taste so good it is worth the effort to figure out what power level works for your microwave.

    I watched Elizibeth Baird from Canadian Living make a lemon tart using this recipe on the Steven & Chris show one day. I had been trying to find a good recipe for pastry using butter rather than oil, shortening or lard. I was not really pleased with any of the recipes I tried. I made this one, and it is now my go to pastry recipe. It just uses all purpose flour, and salted butter is fine as well, as there is no salt in the recipe. For those of you who want to use some whole wheat flour in it I woudl suggest whole wheat pastry flour. If you use it for a savory dish, omit the sugar from the recipe. I have found that you can make it in the food processor as well. You don't have to use frozen butter, just cold from the fridge. I am posting the recipe exactly as it was on the website. I do increase the flour up to 1 1/4 cups, and use just a bit more water then as well. The first time or two that you make it, just use one cup of flour so you can get a good feel for the pastry, then feel free to add the extra flour the next time if you want to. While it only makes a single crust, you can double the recipe with no problems. I have posted the cooking time for blind baking a single crust. Don't be alarmed by the number of steps, I have included directions for using a food processor as well. Once you try this pastry you will never buy another frozen pie shell again. With almost 5000 pastry recipes posted on the site, this may already be here somewhere, but I wanted to share it anyhow.

    Recipe #441199

    I don't remember where I found this recipe, it has been in my recipe box for about 25 years now. It is wonderful for a special occasion dinner, but can also be made up fairly quickly on a weeknight. You can buy sliced mushrooms to use in this to speed it up a bit. This is going to be the main course for my Valentine's Day Dinner this year. I use chicken broth from a 1 litre carton if I don't have any homemade frozen. While it definitely is not diet food you can lighten it up a bit by using half & half instead of heavy cream, but the sauce will be a bit thinner then. While this takes a bit more work than just cooking some chicken breasts it is well worth the effort. You can serve this with pasta or risotto, and some whole green beans with baby carrots.

    I don't remember where I found this copycat recipe. I am always looking for ways to sneak some healthier things into the foods kids love. The cream of wheat & buttermilk in this recipe are one way to do that. Serve these with your favorite syrups, or fresh fruit and a bit of whipped cream. A warm blueberry or saskatoon berry sauce is always nice on any kind of pancake, griddle cake or french toast. We prefer smaller pancakes or griddlecakes rather than the plate size ones they serve in restaurants. The cooking time is based on using a cast iron fryingpan, so I can only cook 4 griddlecakes at a time. They do warm up nicely if you have any leftovers. Update, I have been told that this recipe is from Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2. The ingredients are basically the same (a few slight differences), but my method is not the same as as Todd's. I have been using Quaker Oat Bran cereal instead of Cream of Wheat for the last year as well to add some fiber to these.

    Recipe #441206

    A friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago. It makes a wonderful soft chewy ginger cookie. You could add some finely chopped candied ginger to it if you wanted. I don't flatten these, but I use my KitchenAid stand mixer, so the dough is softer. I do chill the cookies about 10 minutes before baking them. This is another cookie that would be great to use for an icecream sandwich.

    Recipe #449413

    My Mom used to make these cookies for my daughter, without the chopped nuts. They are her favorite cookie. The original recipe used shortening, I use butter and add 1 tsp of instant clearjel per cup of flour to stop the cookies from spreading. If you don't have any instant clearjel make sure to chill your cookies prior to baking. I usually only make half a recipe. You can freeze the cookies before baking, just add a couple of minutes to the baking time if using frozen dough.

    This is a sugar cookie that you don't have to roll and cut. I always use a cookie scoop when making these. The last time I made them I had some organic cane sugar that I used to roll them in, it really seemed to add some extra sparkle to the finished cookies. The note my Mom had on the recipe is DO NOT double or flatten the cookies. The cookies will turn out slightly differently if you use a hand mixer or a big stand mixer. I use my KitchenAid stand mixer & bake the cookies for 10 minutes. They turn out flatter, slightly soft & chewy, just the way I like them. If you use a stand mixer you could chill your dough or add 2 tsp of instant clearjeI to it to stop the cookies from spreading as much. I think they would make a wonderful icecream sandwich.

    Recipe #449406

    This is a recipe from the Blue Bayou Restaurant, New Orleans Square, Disneyland. It came from one of the Disney recipe sites, sorry I don't remember which one. I will also post the recipe for the pecans from Boatwrights at Disneyworld, it is slightly different. I have not made this version, I usually do the Boatwrights version which is baked after the sugar mixture is poured over the nuts. They are wonderful to eat as is, or garnish a salad with them.

    Recipe #450382

    I found this somewhere on the internet. It sounded worth trying. I love cinnamon & pecans. I might be tempted to add more cinnamon to this. I am just guessing at the cooking time, as you cook until it reaches the hard ball stage.

    Recipe #450438

    I think this may be a Paula Deen recipe, there is nothing noted on the recipe card, so I am not sure. There are several versions of sweet & spicy pecans on, but all of them are slightly different. Any time you add sugar & spices to pecans it is a winning combination.

    Recipe #450437

    I found this recipe on They used pecans in the recipe, but I am sure you could sub any nuts you choose. They use a bit of canola or corn oil in the glaze, you could use a mild flavoured olive oil as well. These would be a great addition to any holiday goodie basket. They do say to avoid putting the nuts in plastic bags because the coating will rub off. The best method to package them would be in a small glass bowl wrapped with cellophane, or in a small decorative tin.

    Recipe #450488

    These muffins seem to be a little moister than most cornmeal muffins. I think soaking the cornmeal in the buttermilk is what makes a difference. I always use finely ground cornmeal, but you can use the regular cornmeal if you like the grittier texture it provides. I always use butter, not margarine, a personal preference. I never use Splenda, but imagine it would work for those with dietary restrictions. I will sometimes add some toasted wheat germ, no more than about 1/4 cup in this recipe, just to give it a bit of a nutritional boost. As with most cornmeal muffins, these are best served the day they are baked. I don't know how well they freeze, the kids eat them up too quickly. I can't remember where I found the recipe, but thought I would post it here for safe keeping. Update to this recipe. I have added honey on to the ingredient list. I usually use honey instead of sugar when I make these. It adds a bit of flavour as well as making them moister.

    Recipe #364044

    I think this is a Paula Deen recipe. I have had it in my recipe box for several years. I try not to make these nuts too often. They just taste too good. You could substitute evaporated milk for the whipping cream, but I have never made them that way. You do need a candy thermometer when you are making these nuts. You have to work quickly at the end of the recipe or you will end up with a big lump of nuts. If you wish to make candies, keep pot in a bowl of hot water & drop spoonfulls on greased parchment. I have included these in Christmas goodie boxes.
