    hmmmmmmmmmm... sounds delightful ! i'm always hungry, so i'm sure i'll have to try a little of everything !

    i'll have to pass on the donuts, though. nah.... just not into sugary, greasy, high in saturated and transfat donuts. :stone
    (there.. bet i just made your day !!!)


    ok.. back to the original thought... i'll bring a great seasonal jello cranberry/nut cream salad (perfect for this time of year!) :

    3 oz. box of cherry flavor gealtin
    3 tbsp. sugar
    1 cup boiling water
    1 can whole berry cranberrry sauce
    1/3 cup finely chopped celery
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts
    1 cup sour cream

    dissolve gelatin and sugar in boiling water
    add cranberry sauce and stir/blend
    chill until thickened bot not firm

    add remaining ingredients, blending lightly

    pour into mold or nice dish and chill until firm.

    pretty to look at, and yummy for the tummy !!!

    ok im in,, gonna have to see if this can be printed with highlight. Anxious to see some new recipes since the family needs some new variety. Will be back for a few posts of my own,, liver dumplings anyone?



    Doesnt have strong liver taste,, Good on a cold winter day


    Ingredients:
    1 pound ground bacon
    1 pound ground beef liver
    1-2 med onions (Chopped)
    3 eggs (beaten)
    approx. 2 cups beef boulion
    approx. 2-3 cups tomato juice
    1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
    1-2 cups of flour
    1 tsp. salt

    Directions:
    I use the hand crank grinder to get a course grind on the bacon and liver.
    Fry ground bacon (not to crisp). Drain, and set aside.
    Fry ground liver and onions (use skillet from bacon and fry until meat is just dry stage, no red left)
    Cool liver mixture, add cooled bacon, eggs, bread crumbs,
    and 1/4 cup flour and stir until mixed.
    Shape mixture into balls and roll in remaining flour and let set for about 20 min. on waxed paper. They need to set long enough to be fairly firm.
    Drop dumplings into hot mixture of beef boulion and tomato juice and simmer covered for at least 3/4 hour.

    You don't find too many live lovers, but I happen to be one of them. I am definitely trying this one.

    I looked for hours, but couldn't find my Tuna-Noodle Casserole recipe. Hope this will work for you:

    This dish is best made a few hours or even a day ahead, in order to get all the juices mixing nicely

    Gramma's Best Cole Slaw

    1 head of Savoy cabbage
    1/3 head of red cabbage
    1 or 2 carrots
    about 1/3 lb. (the larger box) of Golden raisins
    1 can of crushed pineapple with juice
    2 tsp of lemon juice
    2-3 heaping tablespoons of Miracle Whip or whatever kind of mayonnaise you prefer
    Optional : a few shakes of white pepper (for those of you who like a little kick)

    Using a food processor, chop all the cabbage and carrots and add the ingredients in order, mixing well after each addition. Just add enough mayo to get the mixture wet but not sloppy, if you know what I mean. Put it in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight for the best flavor.

    When we have potlucks at work, someone always has to make this dip:

    In a casserole dish, spread a layer of cream cheese across the bottom, so that it's about 1/4 inch thick. Cover this with a layer of canned chili (any type works well). Top with shredded cheddar and montery jack cheese. Bake at 350 until the cheese is melted. Serve with tortilla chips, or, for the BEST taste, with Fritos Scoops.

    I wonder if this is anything like the liver dumpling soup I always get at Bohemian restaurants?

    Often, I bring the Bertucci's sausage soup that I just posted in the soup thread yesterday to a potluck. It is very popular, since you don't usually see soup at a potluck. It is easy to do, just put it in a crockpot and pick up some little soup cups at a warehouse club.

    Other times, I take this dessert. No one has ever had anything like it. It is good, easy, cheap, and easy to cut into as many portions as needed.

    Cherry Dessert:

    6 egg whites, beaten to peaks
    2/3 t cream of tartar
    1/2 t vanilla

    2 cups saltine cracker crumbs
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup crushed nuts- your choice, but I usually use walnuts or almonds

    Fold the egg white mixture into the saltine mixture. Spread onto a greased baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Let cool.

    Top with a mixture of Cool Whip and cherry pie filling. You can use whatever proportions you like, and make the topping as thick as you like it.

    Oh, my. That sounds sooooo delish. I think I will try this tonight with my dh. He will think I hung the moon, Mercy.

    How 'bout a different peach cobbler?

    I package crescent rolls

    I large can sliced peaches

    1 stick butter, melted

    1 cup sugar

    1/2 can sprite

    Mix the butter and sugar. Place peaches on triangles of crescent roll and roll up individually. Place in dish, seam down. Pour sugar/butter mixture over mixture and then pour sprite over the rolls. Bake 350 degrees til brown.
