Oatmeal Blondies

Oatmeal Blondies by Farrell May Podgorsek

I couldn't decide what to make one day. Did I want Blondies or Oatmeal Cookies. Why not both? The bars came out exactly as I wanted them to. Moist on the inside like a good Blondie should be, with a nice chewy texture from the rolled oats. I made these with chocolate chips and cinnamon, a great combination. Other nice additions would…

THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes

THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes by Salad Foodie

Several years ago Bacardi’s Rum Cake recipe used an 18 ½ ounce cake mix and box of instant vanilla pudding mix. Not long after that box cake mixes were developed with “pudding in the mix” which now are known as “super moist” or “deliciously moist.”…

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”)

“Bear Sign” (Or… a more polite name: “Nut & Berry Shortbread Bars”) by Kevin Olomon

During the off-season, when salmon aren’t readily available up north, Alaskan bears eat mainly nuts and berries. So to track a bear in the woods, you simply look to the forest floor and watch for “bear sign”. Need I say more? Ha! These are SO easy…

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Blueberry Cream Cheese Dump Cake

Blueberry Cream Cheese Dump Cake by Carolinaheartstrings

Many of you have probably made or at least heard of a “dump” cake before. It’s where you dump a box of cake mix in a 9×13 pan along with some other ingredients. Well it just so happened that I had some items in my pantry that looked ready to dump so here is my version of a dump cake using two of my dessert faves: blueberries and…

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

Rhubarb cake gets a delightful update with the spicy-sweet addition of crystallized ginger to its caramelized topping. Cake flour provides an extra-light crumb.

Good Stuff Dessert (a chocolate pudding trifle)

Good Stuff Dessert (a chocolate pudding trifle) by Salad Foodie

Years ago a friend gave me this recipe saying it is as the name says, truly “Good Stuff.” Layers start with a pecan crust, then a cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding layer and a whip topping. As a dessert it’s a real “looker,” but the taste tells you this is one luscious “icebox” cake. The name doesn’t do this one justice ~…

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi
