Granny's Italian Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
This is a recipe I go to again and again. It's fabulous! I make it with crust or without, and have used egg beaters and reduced fat cheese. It's always good! Dont leave out the mustard! It sounds a little odd but it gives it a great flavor. I am now asked to bring this to every family get together and people raved about it at a baby shower I brought it to. Great healthy veggie dish! Enjoy!

Pizzelles II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
This is the recipe that came with my mother's pizzelle iron. When she gave it to me, she said "You must use margarine! Butter will make them burn.". Well, I don't generally use margarine to cook with so I use 1/2 butter 1/2 maragine usually and sometimes all butter. Mine always turn out nice and thin and crisp. My Mom and my Aunt asked me "How do you get them so light and crisp!?" I said, "I use butter!" The looks on their faces was too funny! I cool mine on a cookie rack and only stack when they are completely cool. I always make sure my baking powder is fresh and add 1 TBSP of anise seeds along with the extract. The flavor gets stronger as they are stored. We have always stored them in cookie tins with waxed paper on the top and bottom. They last for a very long time like that. My grandmother and mother made hundreds of these for our big Italian family each year for the holidays. Now it's my turn! :)

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
These were wonderful! I did them all in one pan, as other reviewers suggested, stirring occasionally and spread on a cookie sheet to cool. Once cool, I broke them into pieces. They were positively addictive! Thanks so much! I am going to try this with some pecan pieces since the pumpkins are all gone! Thanks!

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
These are the best! I have been making them for years. We call them "Bellybuttons". My favorite combos are kisses with peanut m&m's, and rolos with pecan halves. Almond m&m's are good too. I always use Snaps, the square pretzels. I think the temp is too high for this. I do a couple minutes at 250 degrees and that works well. Wait a minute or two before squishing on the tops to give the inside a chance to get soft. If the outsides crack, you are heating them for too long. As you squish the candy down, the chocolate should go into the pretzel some. It takes a batch or two to get the hang of this so they look pretty. Either way, these are never around long!
