    Ladyfingers

    I love ladyfingers. I have used them in the past when making tiramisu, which I love. I know they're used in other desserts, but I can't think of any others off hand. Kroger had ladyfingers on a deep discount the other day, so I snagged two packages. I wish I'd grabbed more, actually, since the...

    Win money with your recipes

    I came across this page of recipe contests the other day when I was looking for a recipe. I love Taste of Home, it's a great site with lots of nice family tested recipes, and I've been using the site and magazine for years to obtain my recipes. I don't have many original recipes, but I know some...

    Pizza Monkey Bread

    I know we were talking recently about monkey bread, and I mentioned I'd seen some savory recipes for it. Here's one that I think I will try at some point. My monkey bread pans are half sized, so I guess I could use this recipe and split the ingredients between the two pans, or just substitute a...

    Big Soft Ginger Cookies

    Although it's Fall, the weather's still pretty hot this week. I'm excited that it's supposed to cool down this coming week, though, and I'm planning to bake up at least one batch of these Big Soft Ginger Cookies. I have made them in the past, and know they're delicious, and I usually have these...

    Contest Winning Caramel Apple Crisp

    I have a function to go to in a few weeks, and I'm considering making this. I know others will bring main dishes and probably cupcakes and brownies, so I wanted to bring something different, and seasonal. I enjoy making crisps, and haven't made one in a while, so this might be a good way to...

    New England (or Yankee) Indian Pudding

    I wasn't aware that this dish was related to Britain's hasty pudding until reading this article. I grew up eating Indian Pudding, but it's been quite a while since I've made it. I think I will try this recipe out when I can pick up some maple syrup. I tend to have the rest of the ingredients on...

    New ways of doing things

    I still make my waffles the way I always have, in my electric waffle maker. I'm about to pull it out to make another batch. I like to make a big batch at a time, since my kitchen's small. That way, I make them and keep some out for immediate use, and freeze the rest, then pull one or two out as...

    Best Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping

    I was looking for a recipe to use up a few small cans of blueberries, and I came across this yummy looking confection. I think this would be way too much cheesecake for just me, so I might have to adjust it down to about half size. I would actually make it more often if I had a smaller pan, so I...

    No-Yeast Pizza Crust

    I got a craving for pizza last night, but didn't feel like messing with the yeast. I looked around, and found this no yeast pizza crust. The last one I made (with yeast) was delicious, but somewhat thick. This came out thinner, the way I prefer my pizza crust, and it was also softer, after...

    Pumpkin (and Squash) Recipes from Martha Stewart

    I love squash pie, but it's impossible to get canned squash where I live. My mom will sometimes send it to me, but I might try making some from scratch this holiday season. I never would have thought of adding sage in, as Martha does in the first recipe (Heirloom Squash and Pumpkin Pie) on this...

    Pizzelle Cannoli Shells

    O.k., so we've had an ongoing discussion in another thread about cannoli, and it seems as if making actual cannoli shells is beyond the scope of a beginner baker, or perhaps even a moderately skilled one. So, since I love pizzelle, and recalled seeing them mentioned as being used for cannoli...

    40+ Halloween Desserts

    Here are more than 40 cool Halloween Desserts to make. I really like the spooky fingers, the pumpkin patch cakes, the donuts and the snickers cake. I used to like making things like this when my nieces were young. Which is your favorite? Will you be making any Halloween themed desserts this year?

    Baked Pita Chips

    This is sort of a cheat recipe, in my opinion, since all you do is cut up pita bread, season it, and then bake it, but it would be nice for a quick treat, and great for appetizers. I would like to make pita bread from scratch someday, but for now, this recipe might be a nice compromise. Pita...

    What's your favorite thing to bake for others?

    For me, it depends on the recipient. I occasionally will bake something for my mom, but since she lives across the country, I only bake things that will last while being transported, obviously, and that will still be good for at least a few more days after she receives them. That's usually...

    Stuffed Peppers

    I usually use a mixture of either green and red, or sometimes other colored bell peppers when I make them. Green peppers were on sale the other day, though, so I settled for just green peppers this time. I usually use a ground beef (or sometimes ground pork) and rice mixture, although at one...

    If you were able to buy one item for your kitchen

    No holds barred, what would you buy? I would definitely replace my stove. I much prefer gas to electric, and I do have a gas stove here, but it's ancient, and falling apart. I watch a lot of shows on HGTV, and I have stove and kitchen envy in the worst way. I love the stoves that have the grills...

    Tips for using rye flour?

    I have only made bread a few times, and although rye bread is my favorite, I have never made it. I have some rye flour now, and would like to try making a loaf of bread with it, if the weather ever cools off. Is there anything I need to be aware of? Does rye flour function in the same way as...

    What's your favorite cherry dessert?

    I love fresh cherries, but because they're so expensive, I don't cook with them much. I recently came into 2 cans of cherries, and I'm not sure what I want to make with them. I thought if y'all shared some of your favorite cherry desserts, I might find one that would work for me. I'd love to...

    Favorites for Fall Baking?

    I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready for this Summer to be over, so the weather will cool off, and I can do more baking. The electric bills seem to creep up and up this time of year, so I really try to limit my baking and cooking. I have a gas stove, so that's not the issue, but of course the...

    Strawberry Fruit Leather / Roll Ups

    I've purchased these fruit roll ups or leathers in the stores over the years, and really enjoy eating them. I have never tried making them, but it certainly looks easy enough, and only requires a few ingredients. The only issue is that it takes a long time to bake them, and it's still way too...
