  1. Thank you. Now I can enjoy with my grandkids.
  2. I don't know HOW this worked for everyone else if you followed the recipe instructions. This batter turned out so thin you couldn't possibly coat anything with it. The only explanation or alteration that I can think of is that maybe you should add the meal mix TO the boiling water on the stove and thicken it a bit like polenta? But per the instructions I dumped it into the bowl. I don't get it....
  3. Thank you, Bill! I cut this recipe in half and did 5 Oscar Meyer Beef dogs with enough left over for about 3 more. The batter was just right with excellent flavor. I will use this recipe to surprise my grandchildren on their next visit...and we didn't even have to stand in line to get a great corn dog!

Some of you know me as Brother William. No, I am not really a Monk, but I have grown to enjoy my simple and solo lifestyle. My love for humanity is based on fellowship rather than sensuality. I PROMISE that I will never share a recipe unless I have tasted the food. Most of the recipes are mine, but I have included a few classics, and some recipes that were written by very creative people, that are just so good that I had to share. From time to time I have found recipes with my name on them in print magazines, but they are always altered in some way by the publisher. So there is no reason why you should not add your own personal touch. If you leave this page with just one thought, I hope that it would be that Cooking is a Creative Sport. I grew up in Glenview Illinois, just north of Chicago. My Mother loved those little exotic cookbooks, that were sold as a weekly series in grocery stores in the 1950's. I was taught to eat whatever was put on my plate so I ate food from a different culture every week. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Mediterranean. After leaving my Mother's table, I have lived and enjoyed eating in Colorado, Missouri, Montana and Nebraska, before settling in Saint Cloud, Minnesota in 1975. After a 30 year marriage with mixed reviews, I am now pleasantly single again, and plan to stay that way. Up until recently, I had occupied my evenings just talking with people and sometimes sharing recipes, while soliciting donations for Non-Profit Organizations. Yes .. that's right, for over 20 years, I was a Telemarketer. The perfect job for a Taurus. I enjoy reading cook books the same way most people read novels,and I am still improving my skills in the art of Solo Cooking. However; my true passion will always be sharing my favorite recipes with all of you.
