Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
I have used a recipe almost exactly the same as this one for years but I also add 1/4 cup bbq sauce and 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce. These sloppy joes are amazing! I have also multiplied this recipe by ten when I cater! Everyone LOVES them!!! My mother would serve these for family dinner on a bun, opened-faced with a slice of American cheese and baked just long enough for the cheese to melt. A family favorite!!! Enjoy!!!

Daisy Brand Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
OMGosh! This cake is AMAZING! I am the baker & chef in the family but after having ankle surgery (I have to spend 6 weeks in a cast non-weight bearing) I was craving chocolate cake. My husband offered to make on for me! Needless to say I was very apprehensive but I didn't want to discourage him. So, as I read him the directions step by step from my recliner in the livingroom, he attempted to bake this cake. I have to say, the result was one of the BEST, moistest, richest, melt-in-your mouth chocolate cakes I have ever eaten! He made it in a bundt pan and baked it for 50 minutes. It was incredible! My craving for chocolate was satisfied!!!

Powdered Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I have been making these cookies for many, many years and now my grand daughters ask for them, too! This is probably our family's #1 favorite cookie! I find it is easier to work when you chill the dough for at least an hour or longer. These cookies are very light, flaky and fragile, not like the rolled sugar cookies! They literally melt in your mouth!! I know it sounds like a lot of oil and butter but the recipe is correct! I recommend using 2 tsp. of vanilla though and remember to chill the dough. Also, I prefer to bake them closer to 10 or 11 minutes just until the edges begin to brown lightly.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This is the YUMMIEST carrot recipe EVER! The trick is to use a food processor and puree the carrots. I use 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar the rest is the same. I have catered this dish at rehearsal dinners and its always on our holiday table! A family favorite! My husband calls it carrot candy! HA! Men!!! ;-)

Strawberry Cake and Frosting I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This is my daughter's favorite cake! I have been making it for years but misplaced my recipe in our move. I find pureeing the berries makes this recipe fail-proof! Much easier than draining all the good juice off! I use 2/3 cup in the cake recipe. The pureed berries works great in the frosting too. Just beat butter until fluffy and add powdered sugar and berries alternately until the frosting is the consistency you want.

Jezebel Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Years ago I worked at Shoney's in Nashville. They had a Hawaiian chicken dinner on the menu that had this sauce over it. We would buy it from Shoney's to have at home with our chicken! Sooooooo stinkin' good! This has to be the closest thing to their sauce! I've been making this for ages now and it is fabulous! Great over cream cheese served with crackers, too!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I'd give this 10 stars if I could!! OMGosh! It is soooo good! I use 3 bags of microwave popcorn and it works perfectly! Great any time of the year but I make it most from Halloween to New Years. For kids party I put it in sandwich bags so their fingers aren't all over the caramel corn! Makes wonderful gifts in tins for the holidays and is AWESOME at tailgating parties too! So perfect!!!!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This is such a quick and easy recipe and I have most of the ingredients on hand all the time (well, not the zucchini). I make this up ahead of time, in the morning or even a day or two ahead, then just put it in the oven while preparing the rest of supper. My family prefers the Italian sausage and I usually use an Italian or Mexican cheese blend. It is AWESOME! A tossed salad and some crusty Italian bread - YUM! Additional Note: The next time I made this I stuffed several large, long, sweet Italian red peppers with it and baked them in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, topped them shredded mozzarella cheese and baked 5 minutes longer! OMG!!! They were AWESOME!!!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
This is one of my family's favorite soups. Instead of crackers, though, I bake 2 pie crusts until golden brown. I crumble them and serve them over the top of each bowl of soup. That gives the soup a real "pot pie" flavor!!!!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
A childhood FAVORITE!! My mom's best friend, "Aunt" Sonja would often make these fabulous treats for me when I was a little girl living in Spokane, WA back in the early 1960's. She always used Kix cereal but I find that Reese's Peanut Butter cereal works GREAT, too! The Reese's PB cereal really gives it an extra punch of peanut buttery taste!!! YUMMMY!!!!

Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Awesome!!!! I made this recipe for a retirement breakfast at my husband's work. I used 5 pounds of sausage (3 regular and 2 spicy), 3/4 cup butter. 1 1/2 cups flour and 15 cups milk. OMGosh!!! They couldn't get enough! One guy was eating it with a spoon right out of a bowl - no biscuits! This is the only sausage gravy I will make from now on! Hats off to you Bill and thanks for sharing!

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Love this recipe! I actually increase the amounts to make enough to cater 200 people. I also add some shredded cheddar cheese to the mixture and lay 2 slices (side by side)of lean lunchmeat ham before rolling. This is an easy appetizer to make for any gathering; wedding, shower, tailgate, graduation, holiday, etc. For catering I use: 3 lbs. cream cheese, 15 oz. can black olives, 20 oz. diced green chilies (drained), 20 oz. diced pimento (drained), 10 green onions, 3/4 c. Frank's Red Hot Pepper Sauce, 3/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped, 2 c. finely shredded cheddar cheese, 4 (24oz.) pkgs. sliced ham and 40 tortillas. Spread 6 T. of mixture on each tortilla. (A little more than 1/3 c. but less than 1/2 c.) Lay 2 slices of ham side by side. Trim tortilla along the long sides of the ham and roll from bottom to top. Chill until ready to slice and serve.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I also used 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup peanut butter and 3 cups powdered sugar, as suggested by other cooks. After stirring the peanut butter into the brown sugar mixture, I poured it into my electric mixer and added the powdered sugar, beating until well blended, then pressed it into an 8"x8" dish and covered with plastic. It turned out delicious and creamy! Note: When boiling for 2 minutes, bring it to a "hard, rolling boil" before starting to time.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: May 28, 2003
A family favorite, I had lost this recipe and I am so glad to find it again!!! What an easy and delicious side dish. I have made this many times for potlucks at church and there are NEVER any leftovers. There is always someone who thinks it is 'fresh from the garden' creamed corn. They can't believe it when I tell them its frozen corn. Since I generally like to cook large portions for church dinners and parties I have had no problem doubling and even tripling the recipe. I know you'll love it, too!!!
