    Default So I have looked thru ALL of the posts here and

    I still would like help. My sister got married in August...real quick wedding before BIL left for Iraq. It was in my Moms backyard quite lovely. Well they are gonna have a wedding or just reception after next August when he gets back. Anyways I am going to make her a recipe book with old family faves and new found ones..now. I was wondering if anyone has any tried and true recipes they would like/be willing to share? I am also going to do the "Apology Goblet" I saw in the old posts

    90 minute rolls

    2 -2 1/2 cups flour

    1/2 tsp. salt

    2 Tbsp sugar

    1 pkg or 1 Tbsp yeast ( I use 1 Tbsp)

    3/4 cup milk

    2 Tbsp butter

    Mix most of the flour with the salt, sugar and yeast. Melt butter over medium heat. Add milk and heat until very warm, 120 - 130 degrees. Add to flour mixture and beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the rest of the flour and beat for 2 minutes on high. Stir in enough flour to make a stiff, but not hard dough. You just want it to be no longer sticky. Knead for 2-3 minutes. Oil a bowl well. Place dough in oiled bowl and turn over, making sure both sides are coated. Let rise 15 minutes or until about double in size. It's ready when you poke it quickly with your finger and the dent remains.

    Divide dough into 12 pieces for rolls or shape into a loaf. Brush with oil and let rise to double. While dough is rising, preheat oven to 375 degrees. You can place the pan on the oven while the dough is rising. The warmth will help it rise.

    Bake at 375 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. Brushing melted butter a couple of times during the last 10 minutes of baking will give you a softer, buttery crust. I even brush it a few more times while it's cooling. It makes the crust taste amazing!

    Remove from pan and allow to cool for 10 - 15 minutes before cutting to keep it from crumbling. An electric knife will give you more even slices.

    ** A loaf of bread is done when it is golden brown and sounds hollow when you thump it.

    ** If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer with a dough hook, it is wonderful for making bread! Simply add enough flour and let it knead until the dough clings to the hook and cleans the dough from the sides of the mixing bowl.

    ** This recipe can be used to make cinnamon rolls and pocket sandwhiches, too.

    This is NOT a frugal recipe but it is a real crowd pleaser.

    Bacon Cocktail Weenies

    1 pkg of cocktail sausages

    1lb bacon, cut into thirds

    1lb brown sugar

    1 pkg round toothpicks

    Liberally spray a 9 x 13 cake pan with nonstick spray. This will help with messy clean up later.

    Wrap pieces of bacon around cocktail sausages and secure with toothpicks. Crowd into pan, leaving a corner open for basting. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top of the weenies, covering completely but making sure there are no hard little lumps of sugar.

    Place into 375 degree oven. Cook until brown sugar is melted and bacon is comepletely cooked. This will take from 30-45 minutes. Be sure to baste weenies in the melted sugar and bacon grease while cooking, breaking up any lumps of sugar.

    When serving, be sure to drizzle some of the sugar/bacon grease over the weenies.

    *** All flavors of bacon can be used for this recipe. I have used maple flavored with success.

    Beer Bread


    3 cups self rising flour (or add 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt to all purpose)

    1/4 cup sugar

    12 oz beer

    1/2 cup melted butter


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease loaf pan.

    Mix the dry ingredients, add the beer. Mix and pour or spoon into loaf pan. Sometimes batter will be very thick.

    Pour melted butter over the batter and bake for 1 hour.

    Remove from pan and cool for 15 minutes before cutting.

    This makes a bread with thick, crispy crust and goes very well with hearty soups and stews. An electric knife is ideal for slicing this bread.

    Pancakes

    2 eggs

    2 cups flour

    2 Tbsp sugar

    5 tsp baking powder

    1/4 tsp salt

    1 1/2 cups milk

    2 eggs

    1/4 cup vegetable oil


    Mix dry ingredients and set aside. Beat eggs slightly, then add oil and milk. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Mixture will be lumpy.

    Heat a lightly greased griddle or frying pan to medium heat. Spoon 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter onto griddle. Flip when the edges of the pancake look dry and the bubbles in the middle begin to break. Cook until golden.

    Pie or turnover crust

    3 cups flour

    1 tsp salt

    1 cup shortening

    1/2 - 3/4 cup ice water


    Mix flour with salt. Add shortening in chunks and cut or rub into flour until it resembles cornmeal. Add enough water to moisten dough and toss with fork until dough follows fork around the bowl. DO NOT OVERMIX!

    The key to tender and flaky piecrust is not to overhandle it. You want to mix it just enough to make it hold together.

    Bake at 375 degrees until golden.

    This recipe makes enough for a 2 crust pie or a small 2 crust cobbler, depending on how thick you like your crust. Roll out leftover crust, spread with butter, liberally sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, cut into small squares and bake with your pie until golden. My family likes these piecrust cookies as much, and maybe even better than pie.

    Chewy popcorn balls

    1 cup unpopped popcorn

    1/4 cup butter

    1 cup mini marshmallows

    1 lb powdered sugar

    3/4 cup corn syrup

    2 Tbsp water


    Pop popcorn, preferably in air popper, and place in very large bowl or pan.

    Put all other ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a roiling boil.

    Pour over popcorn, butter hands well and shape into balls. Be sure to keep hands very well buttered because this is very sticky!

    *** If you would like a salty/sweet combo, salt your popcorn after popping. Delicious.

    Saltine Candy aka Mock Toffee aka Welfare Candy


    1 cup butter ( do NOT use margarine!)

    1 cup brown sugar

    1 (11oz) pkg chocolate chips (white chocolate chips work, too)

    40 saltine crackers

    1 cup chopped nuts, your preference (optional, but very good)


    Line a jellyroll pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray. Lay crackers flat on foil in a single layer. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Melt butter and sugar together over medium heat and cook until foamy. Pour over crackers and bake for 10 minutes.

    Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. After a couple of minutes, the chocolate chips will be soft enough to spread.

    Sprinkle with nuts and allow to cool. Refrigerate to harden. Cut into squares or break into pieces like peanut brittle.
