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

Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn by Glenn

Large gatherings of people who like corn on the cob requires a couple of lobster pots or a wash tub and a lot of boiling water and patience. Not anymore. Thanks to tailgating technology there is a simple way to make dozens of ears of corn for the hungry revelers.

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

Easy Candied Pecans by Salad Foodie

A snack for the gods! Sprinkle atop your favorite greens, blue cheese topped or chicken salad. For holiday entertaining leave the pecans in halves rather than chopping, and serve in a festive bowl.

Death by Chocolate Trifle

Death by Chocolate Trifle by Marilyn Lesniak

This dessert should be called Suicide is Painless! I amde this in a trifle bowl as shown, but I think I would use a glass 9x11 dish nest time. After serving up a few portions the dessert started to fall in on itself and I was up to my elbows in sticky sweetness. It was surprisingly very light, and folks came back forcseconds and…

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey by Robyn Savoie

Traditional turkeys are nearly flavorless when you skip the skin and gravy—and that’s where most of the fat and calories lie. This salty-spicy-sweet rub keeps the meat lean but still plenty of flavor. This recipe easily converts to a 3 - 4 pound roasting chicken. Just cut the seasonings in half. The instructions include cooking…

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Never Fail Chocolate Cake

Never Fail Chocolate Cake by Glenn

One of the easiest, and moistest chocolate cakes you will ever bake. My grandmother, Eva Koehler, called it her "never fail" recipe. It is nearly impossible to screw up. She always topped it with peanut butter icing (which is simply a white icing with peanut butter mixed in to taste).

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie

Creole Perfect Sweet Potato Pie by Amos Miller

I have made this recipe for years. There is none better - or so I've been told by some serious and knowing Creole cooks. And while some may say "Well, it sounds just like a pumpkin pie recipe", they are sorely mistaken. This, my friends, is a Creole Sweet Potato Pie. This is the way to eat your vegetables! Vegetables and…
