Earthquake Cake III
This is quick and simple to throw together. I was intrigued by this recipe because the ingredients sounded good. I love coconut, pecans, cream cheese and chocolate cake. The name was certainly interesting. I'd never baked an "Earthquake Cake" before, but as
it baked I understood the reason for the name. I had a little trouble with the frosting sticking to the pan, but I just scraped it up with a spatula and spread it back onto the upturned cake. I did add some chopped, toasted pecans that I had left from another
recipe. I took this to work with me and had several requests for the recipe. This is a great recipe if you need something quick, simple, and tasty.
Italian Restaurant-Style Dressing
This is easy and very tasty. I did cut way back on the salt. I only put in 1 teaspoon and it was plenty for me. I do agree it is restaurant-quality. I'll definitely make this one again!
Brennan's Irish Soda Bread
This is so quick and easy. I made a loaf for St. Patrick's Day supper, and two days later my 11 year-old son made another loaf. It's that simple. I used buttermilk in place of the milk and vinegar since I had some I needed to
use up. I'll be making this again and again!
(There have been other photos of this one and they look great. I was having photo loading problems with certain photos, this being one of them. Even though my photo wasn't the first one, I wanted
to spotlight this recipe because it's so very good and easy!)
Classic Irish Boiled Dinner
Large pot is an understatement. I changed pots twice, finally settling on a 12 quart pot. I couldn't find a smoked pork shoulder, so I used an unsmoked one and added two smoked pork hocks for flavor. I did add a few beef and chicken
bouillion cubes to the cooking water for a little extra flavor. This was delicious - rustic and simple. I served it with Brennan's Irish Soda Bread from this site.
These are nice, soft, delicious cookies. If you're looking for a crispy cookie, look elsewhere. This dough keeps well in the refrigerator. When I baked another try a few days later, my cookies were much thicker.
This couldn't be quicker and simpler to put together. I'll definitely remember this one the next time I need a quick dessert for a potluck. It's great as-is, but I may play around next time and add a bit of butter and sugar to
the crushed wafers to make more of a crust. Thanks for a great, EASY recipe.
Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken
This recipe calls for more butter and jelly than are really necessary. The cooking time is also off a bit. My chicken was almost exactly 4 lbs, but took an extra half hour (at least) to test done. The resulting chicken was tasty, but I don't know that I'll
make it again.
Dishpan Cookies I
By: Tammy Elliott
These are amazing. I was really skeptical, but I had all the ingredients, so I made a small batch. I need to make more. These are the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. I used my large cookie scoop which holds a rounded
tablespoon. I made some with and some without coconut (DH doesn't like the stuff). Both were delicious. Thanks for a tasty recipe that I will definitely make again!
Tempting Tuna Salad
I used a Gala apple and mayonnaise as I didn't have the dressing on hand. This was fantastic. I'll definitely be making this again. The apples added a nice crunch that stuck around even after refrigerating.
