Couldn't find my favorite family recipe, so I turned to Allrecipes. Found this one. I just happened to have self-rising flour I had bought for another recipe. I substituted melted butter for the oil and took the advice of others and added a couple of tablespoons of sugar and vanilla. Cooked them on my new griddle along with bacon and eggs and served my husband a great breakfast. The pancakes were great - and SO easy. A definite keeper!

Cranberry Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
This is one of my favorite recipes I've made for years. The last few years, I have omitted the pecans and celery - mostly because I didn't want to chop. I like it better without the celery. Tip on the orange -I choose a nice-skinned navel type orange since they have a thinner skin and no seeds. I trim off the peel from both ends, quarter the orange and trim off the white pith before adding to the food processer.

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
This is a great recipe and similar to one I have made before, but lost. My recipe calls for mandarin oranges - which is easy & out of the can - no peeling. Also adding sliced almonds - carmelized in a frying pan over the stove with 1-2T. of sugar. Just watch carefully and stir frequently with a wooden spoon to make sure the almonds don't burn.

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
These were absolutely wonderful, and the ease in making them warrants the 5 star rating. They had a cake like taste. I used a generic store brand waffle and pancake mix. Just a note - no need to measure 14T of sugar. I just measured the 3/4 cup and sprinkled sugar on the tops of the muffins prior to baking (which would be 2T if you're measuring - but I just sprinkled). I did coat the blueberries with the 2nd cup of dry mix because I've always read that this makes them mix in easier & not go to the bottom. I also didn't bother with the separate bowls for wet & dry ingredients. Just mix the eggs with the sour cream, add the dry ingredients & berries. I believe in keeping it simple - and this recipe does it, without sacrificing taste!

Taco Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
delicioso! I also added the full taco seasoning packet & a can of corn as suggested. Topped with avocado, cheese & tortilla strips (I used the ones that come in a bag for salads) - easy & good recipe.

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
Lost my recipe box with my favorite pecan pie recipe & found it here. This is THE BEST pecan pie recipe. A couple of hints: you can substitute light corn syrup-in fact I usually use the light. If you are using a "deep dish" pie crust, you need to increase the filling amount- easy to do with the all recipes conversion - I increased servings to 9 & used 4 eggs. You don't have to lay pecans on the bottom of the crust,just fold into the batter-it works fine. Pecans- I chop some & leave some halved. I also omit vanilla. The real trick is the cooking time - this comes with practice; if it's runny inside, it didn't cook long enough. If I'm sometimes not sure, I'll cook a few minutes more to be safe- especially with a deep dish crust.You learn to recognize when the pie is "set" on top. Hope these hints help - this is my favorite recipe & I've been cooking it for 25+ years & my Mom before me. Bon Apetit!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
This is the most delicious recipe I've ever tried. I took the advice of one of the reviewers, and cut the head into large pieces. I "steamed" it in the microwave. It was hard to get the mixture to stick, so on my second try (the head was big enough to make two "cookings")I melted the butter and drizzled it over the cauliflower. Then I mixed the remaining ingredients together & sprinkled them over before baking.This worked well and came out great. Thanks for the recipe!

Slot Key Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2000
This is just like the "Schlotsky" bread! I made it as dough in my bread machine & then formed into rolls, and baked in the oven. These are great! My thanks to Chris for sharing the recipe. The only thing is, they disappeared too quickly - will have to double the batch!
