This is a yummy combination of some of my favorite foods. This is comfort food to the max! You don’t want to fix this and forget it as this has a pretty short cooktime, for a crockpot meal.
2 cups milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
One of my favorite autumn side dishes is fried apples. My mother used to make this. It is a very simple recipe, but oh so yummy.
The number of apples you use is determined by how many you want to serve! I slice up one medium apple per person. I recommend a good cooking apple such as granny smith or macintosh. They hold their shape and are very flavorful. I usually peel the apples, but it isn’t necessary.
After peeling and slicing the number of apples you want, set them aside for a minute. In a saute pan or skillet, melt about 2 tablespoons of butter. Once this is melted, add the apple slices. Make sure you turn your burner down to medium or medium-high. Stir the slices around once in awhile. The apples will cook down in volume as they soften. It is up to your personal preference how crunchy or soft you want the apples to be. At the very end, sprinkle on some cinnamon and sugar to your taste.
I prefer to serve them warm, but it is pretty good when it is cooled in the refrigerator too. It is really hard to mess up a recipe like this. Just remember to keep your eyes on the apples while they are cooking. They are done pretty quickly.
I’ve seen this recipe called many different things. This is the title on the recipe card that I found stuck in a library book many years ago. It is a great recipe to take to a picnic as it has no mayonnaise, eggs or milk in it so it is safe in the heat. I suggest that you not mix the dressing and the salad together just before you are ready to serve it.
1 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
2 packages chicken flavored Ramen noodles
1 pound bag cole slaw mix
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 bunch green onions — chopped
Mix together oil, sugar, vinegar and flavor packets from Ramen noodles and chill for 24 hours.
Just before serving, toss together the remaining ingredients as well as the crushed Ramen noodles. Pour dressing over and mix before serving.
This tastes just as you’d expect it to taste. Yummmm.
Bake a Devil’s Food chocolate cake in a 9×13 pan as directed on the package. Set it aside to cool.
Shake 5 Tablespoons of flour and 1 1/4 cup milk until well blended (just use a cup with a lid)
Cook this, stirring contantly until thick. Let this cool.
Cream 1 stick of butter or margarine, 1 cup Crisco (must use this brand, it makes a difference in the taste), and 1 cup of sugar with a mixer. Add the cooled flour mixture to this and beat it well. I would beat this for about 10 minutes. Spread over the cooled cake.
Melt 1 stick of butter or margarine and allow it to cool.
Beat together 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 6 Tablespoon cocoa, 2 Tablespoons oil, 2 1/2 Tablespoons HOT water, 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar. Add the butter, then pour over the cake.
Best if made ahead and refrigerated.
This recipe has been around the web for awhile, so I cannot take credit for its creation. In fact, I’m quite sure Paula Deen has made this popular as it sure does contain a lot of “butta”. My recipe has listed as the source: Recipe-A-Day 12/28/1999.
This is my oldest daughter’s most requested birthday “cake”. It really isn’t a cake, more of a bar cookie.
Gooey Butter Bars
1 box of butter cake mix
2 sticks butter
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
- 1 pound powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13x2 inch cake pan and set aside
In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, 1 egg and 1 stick of butter that has been melted. Cream together well and press into the bottom of the cake pan. This will be a very stiff batter.
Mix the softened cream cheese, remaining 2 eggs, powdered sugar and remaining 1 stick of butter that has been melted together in a large mixing bowl (I use the same bowl for both steps). Mix until fluffy. Pour over the batter in the cake pan.
Bake for 40-50 minutes without opening the oven door. When done, the cake will appear very fluffy.
After the cake cools, sprinkle it with a dusting of powdered sugar.
