I have won ribbons with this recipe which I received from my grandmother.
The only thing I do that is different from my grandmothers is I just throw the bananas in the freezer whole and unpeeled. Then I let them thaw and squeeze them into the batter when the recipe calls for them. I think that is the secret to the moist, denseness that my banana bread has.
This bread CAN NOT be doubled. I know because I have tried 3 times and the bread won't rise.
Cool COMPLETELY on a rack before wrapping and refrigerating.
Or it will be icky and sticky in the middle.
These are the best fruitcake(ish) cookies I have ever had.
I think the secret ingredient of cottage cheese and soaking the fruits in brandy is the key!
One batch makes a lot! I double them and freeze to give away as Christmas gifts.
Preparation time does not include the overnight refrigerator time for fruits and batter.
I hope you enjoy them!
This makes a huge amount of salad dressing for a few hundred people.
For a church crowd or PTA spaghetti supper fund raiser.
The leftover dressing keeps well if you use the dried parsley. But more attractive salad with the fresh because it stays brighter green.
THIS CAN ALSO BE GIVEN IN JARS AS GIFTS.
I am also listing a spaghetti recipe for a huge crowd too.
This is so easy and really good to serve for ladies at a brunch or game day.
I serve this in my little punch bowl and ladle into cups which a little lime slice and ice has been added.
Just hits the spot.
I got this recipe from a friend who is a caterer. This is the best cornbread you will ever have! It makes a 13x9 pan----extra moist! Use the jalapeños in the jar and chop (about 1/2 cup chopped). Use whatever your favorite unseasoned cornbread kit is. If you use Jiffy Mix, omit the sugar.
There is a lot of German influence in the hill country of Texas and this is one of our favorite meals to have.
I have to squeeze lots of fresh lemon on my schnitzel. We love this dish with spaetzle.
I have that recipe posted too.
People love these and I have to laugh when asked for the recipe.
These are nice big & thick cookies!
I had to put a size for the cookie dough, hope I came close. heh heh!
Use the tube of white chocolate cookie dough in the refrigerated section of the store.
Do not spread the cookie dough out.
I had to put a size on the nuts, just use a regular size they have at the store.
I know it sounds weird with the pepper in it but believe me it is fabulous!
I got this recipe from my brother in law who runs Texas Restaurant Association in Austin, TX.
Good served with meats like pork, turkey & chicken. Great to spread on sandwiches!
Great as an appetizer served over the infamous cream cheese block with crackers such as wheat thins or sociables.
You let it marinade overnight or 2 nights to meld.
EVERYTHING MUST BE FRESH!
Keeps forever in the fridge.
My mother used to call this inch cake since it is so rich, you could only eat a inch at a time!
Moist, rich, luscious!
Perfect to take to a casual affair since it is left in the dish it is cooked in.
I have never had anybody say they didn't love it.
This recipe came from the Austin, TX Junior League Cookbook.
