    This is a very easy, "no mixer" bread to make. It is very moist and a little heavy type banana bread. The really important thing to remember is using all black bananas to get my same results. I always use 5 medium sized bananas and this recipe makes 2 loaves. Also, I've never used buttermilk, but sour milk instead..a little vinegar added to regular milk. I've used this recipe since 1972 and last year made 32 loaves to give away for Christmas! It's truly a wonderful bread. I only bake it until the toothpick comes out almost clean, as we like it really moist. If you over bake it, or wait til the toothpick is completely clean, the bread will be a lot dryer. I realize some like it this way, so thats why I've given this hint. My family and friends would rather have it a little under done than over. It's so good with coffee, butter/jelly or I like mine just plain. I bake it in tin foil pans and it freezes wonderfully. I try to always have one or two in the freezer for company, or a little gift. This recipe came from a ladies club cookbook. The kind where everyone contributes recipes, they are made into a recipe book and sold to make money for charities. All the cooks are just plain "down home" country gals that produce miracles in the kitchen. It's my favorite cookbook and I've almost worn it out and it can't be replaced. I know there are many banana bread recipes here, so thanks for trying this recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

    Recipe #82486

    My Dh just loves any kind of pot pie, so thought I'd try this little different version. It was really good, easy, and filling. I served this with beer bread and a crisp garden salad. I took this from our state daily paper over the holidays. If you like mushrooms, I think you will like this easy recipe. Thanks for trying this.

    Recipe #82282

    I've only made this once, but it was very good and will make it again. I served it with garlic bread, but garlic sticks and a side salad would also be nice. I got this from our local news paper. I liked it because the ingredients are simple, (I make my own pasta sauce), and it's quick to prepare leaving you with a hot, satisfying warm meal. Thanks for trying this.

    Recipe #82278

    Mmmmmmmmm, really delish and a comfort food for dh and I. Easy to prepare, not much time involved. My dh showed me this in our state daily newspaper and said he'd like for me to try it. I did and fix it alot now. I serve it with warm flour tortilla's w/butter and sometimes warmed nacho chips and salsa. It's very filling and if we don't want it the next day, I have frozen it with success. Also, I have used a can of green chilis instead of the adobo seasoning and think you could spice it as hot as you want with jalepenos. We just don't do hot or really spicy. Also, the last time I only had cheddar cheese and it turned out fine, but it is better with the monterey jack/cheddar blend. Thanks for trying one of our favorite dinners!

    Recipe #82276

    My family loves this bread! I like to serve it especially with soups and sometimes along with dinner. This is the bread I make when I don't use my bread machine. This recipe came from a good cook in our area that she shared in our local paper. The prep time includes the rising time, and I put 25 min. baking time, but start checking after 20 minutes. Thanks for trying this, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    Recipe #82273

    We have 3 family member birthdays in a row in mid October and I make this cake for one big celebration. I'm not sure where I first saw this, I know it wasn't in a cookbook. I'd like to think I'm creative, but I probably saw it in a magazine over 30yrs ago. It makes a very large amount of cake, so it's great for any fall party or Thanksgiving dessert. Use your imagination and creativity to make the face and stem and leaves. I have also used black tinted icing for the eyes, nose and mouth. I only have 1 bundt pan, so the time consuming part is using it to make 2 cakes. It's really a good looking center piece on a holiday or theme table.

    Recipe #74485

    I found this one day while waiting in the Dr's office in a small paper. I copied (really, I didn't tear it out) the recipe and made and froze it that evening. It was good to have when my girlfriends dropped over about lunchtime. I served it with an iced glass of tropical tea. We all three decided it would make a good fruit dessert also. I used the peach pie filling. Dh tried it that evening and even tho he usually doesn't care for fruity stuff, declared it a winner. I like it because it freezes and keeps well to have on hand for unexpected guest. Its also quick and easy to prepare. Prep time does not include the freezing time.

    Recipe #73459

    Mmmmm, this is so good made with fresh corn. I've not tried it with canned, but frozen would probably work. This recipe came from our daily paper. I was looking for something different as a side to Fahitas. We have a farmers market here and I'd just bought fresh ears of corn, so this recipe was perfect. I didn't use the jalenpenos, though. I also used bacon and not the melted butter. Dh really liked this, so I know it's a keeper for us. Hope you enjoy! Prep and cooking time are both combined to about 20 minutes total.

    Recipe #73457

    I found this in our local paper and I've only made this once. I used my own home made sauce and served it with home made herb bread. It was really good and I will serve it again as it's something quick and hot to fix. It also stated for variety, layer sliced or chopped and cooked vegetables such as zucchini squash, onion, tomato or mushrooms. I'll add the mushrooms next time.

    Recipe #73456

    This cake is very rich and not for fat conscience people. It's wonderful to serve with your favorite home made ice cream. I make this only as a once in awhile special dessert. I copied this recipe from a newspaper a very long time ago and found it in the newspaper again just the other day! Guess time has only made this cake better. You want to make sure you don't over bake as the cake is intended to be very moist and fudgy.

    Recipe #73451

    This is a crusty sweet biscuit that is good served with hot chocolate, coffee or tea. It is an inexpensive, very quick and easy treat. I like them best when they are fresh from the oven. They are very easy to prepare and I've added a little cinnamon to the powdered sugar that is mixed in with the butter. I like to make them on mornings we get to sleep in for a late morning "get yourself going" sweet biscuit served with coffee. I also like to make them if I know my girlfriends are coming over for morning coffee. I found this in a little South West cookbook about 10 yrs ago. Just something special for those of us that don't (but should,smile) eat breakfast. They are an easy treat for the kids to help make. You need to help them roll them in the powdered sugar, as it is done when hot from the oven. I'm not sure how long they would keep,,ours are always gone! I believe they should be ok stored in a zip locked bag,,for a day or so. I want to try doubling recipe to freeze some to have on hand as I think they would freeze well, but I'm not sure how good they would be re-heated. This is not a large quantity recipe, just enough for a couple biscuits for 2 people.

    Recipe #66210

    Easy, easy, easy! I can't count the compliments I've received from these. I used to take three of them to bake sales when I worked. They always sold first! They just look so yummy, people think you just had to work very hard and long on them! I got this recipe from my mom at least 30 yrs ago and my family has enjoyed them ever since! I was out of pecans once and the kids begged for them so I made them anyway and they were almost as good. If you have a timer on your stove, you can set it for the baking time to begin and end. The wonderful aroma will wake you up! Set your alarm anyway,,don't want to ruin a good thing! I hope this becomes a family favorite of yours too. Also, the first time you make them, watch them closely not to over or undercook the rolls. use 1 large round platter or pizza pan covered with foil. They look awesome on a fancy platter

    Recipe #65640

    I love my moms "the best" lettuce/pea salad (just posted #64951) but I can no longer eat lettuce, broccoli, spinach and other vitamin K foods. My mom made a similar salad as this one, but I revised it more to my taste. It is a very crunchy, good tasting salad I just came up with last week. It makes a pretty large salad but my hubby and I ate it in three days. You can increase or decrease the spices to suit your taste. For best results, make this salad the night before you need it. Also, don't add the cheese until your almost ready to serve it. Don't salt it until you serve it as it would draw moisture while sitting in the fridge overnight. If you like less dressing, decrease the real mayo to 1 1/2 cups. It is so good, I don't even miss lettuce now! It is very easy to make, stores well and should do well at any potluck or family gathering.

    Recipe #65618

    My mom has made this as long as I can remember. It is a crunchy, very tasty salad. It is a "must have" dish at our family gatherings and holidays. It makes a large quanity, but almost never has much leftover. What there is left is fought over to take home! I tried using another brand mayo and making this salad the day of serving, but did not taste as well. For the best salad, use Hellmans real mayo and make this the nite before. If you are a salad fan, I guarantee you will be addicted to this salad. I've also eaten variations with green peppers, canned peas and eggs, but I love this combination the best. Mom never has any complaints, but then, she's the best cook I know! The prep time doesn't include the "drying" time for the lettuce/peas and the overnite time in the fridge.

    Recipe #64951

    This is an easy version of my easy oven baked beef enchiladas. There is probably a recipe like this, but I didn't use one and will make it often as it turned out well. It's also very easy. My hubby was hungry for this, but I wasn't going to be home, so I threw this together about 2 pm. He got home about 6 pm and said the smell was so good, he didn't take time to change clothes. I came in about 8 pm and even tho he had turned it off, it was warm and very good. Be sure not to over-cook as it will be dry and the tortillas tough on the edges. I think 4 hours would be the perfect amount of time. Serve with warm flour tortillas and butter or chips.

    Recipe #63943

    This is a sure hit for Mexican food lovers, potlucks and when you don't have time to make authentic enchiladas. I'm not sure where I got this, as the first time I made it was over 25 years ago. I believe it came from a ladies club cookbook they sold for money for charities. You can use hot peppers, mild or leave them out all together. The topping is so rich 'n creamy and you don't need to mix it. This is my family's favorite 1 dish meal. Very easy to prepare.

    Recipe #63518

    Quick and easy, but a very nice flavour. Serve with rice or pasta and the whole meal can be ready in less than 30 minutes. Adapted from "Fast & Easy Cooking" by Johanna Burkhard.

    Recipe #63120

    This is so easy to fix, and has a different taste from the traditional ham & beans. I got this from a SW cook book and wasn't sure about fixing it, but hubby wanted me to try it. We've had it several times, cooked both in the oven and crockpot. The crockpot suites me best. One of those throw it in and forget about it meals! I serve it with mexican cornbread and because there are only 2 of us, serve it the next day and add fried potatoes. My hubby is originally from Tucson and this is one of his favorite meals. Also, I have good luck with freezing leftovers. If you like beans and roast, you must try this! I haven't made it with navy beans, but believe it would still be good. You can use hot peppers to spice it up, or leave them out, or use mild like I do.

    Recipe #62803

    I got this from a SW cookbook some time ago. It gets its name because the cake is cracked with crevices on top when done. If you love German chocolate cake, but hate the time consuming process,,,this cake is wonderful!! It reminds me of my grandma's 3 layer German chocolate cake. It's too rich for just the two of us, so hubby looks forward to family gatherings and holidays or his birthday, smile. I love this because I love cream cheese and German chocolate and the fact that it is super easy!

    Recipe #62737

    My wonderful late father-in-law taught me his favorite way to make guacamole many years ago. I wasn't too sure about the dill pickle and juice he added, but it is really good. This is the only way I make it, and my hubby too when he is in a cooking mood. We hope you enjoy it.
