Pineapple Casserole

This recipe is actually from a cook who I've seen before. Your name is Paula Deen. I think she is really gonna go places!! I have tailored this recipe alittle. It is a wonderful dish and I serve it quite a bit for work food feasts!!

Pineapple Casserole

1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 20-ounce cans pineapple tibbits drained (reserve juice)
2 cups ritz cracker crumbs
1 stick butter, melted

Preheat oven for 350 degrees. Mix together sugar and flour, then gradually stir in cheese. Add pineapple and stir well. Pour mixture into greased casserole dish. Combine cracker crumbs, butter, and pineapple juice (I usually don't need all of the juice-just enough to moisten the topping making it easy to spread) and spread on top of pineapple mixture. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy!!

What a great idea!!
This is a recipe that my mom fixes for Thanksgiving along with the turkey, gravy, potatoes, my mouth is already watering.

Squash Cornbread

Mix together:
3 eggs
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 stick of butter (melted)
1 1/4 cup of self rising corn meal
1/4 cup self rising flour
1 1/4 cup grated squash
1 med onion (chopped)
3/4 cup cottage cheese
1/4 tsp. salt

Bake at 325 for 30 min. in a cake pan or even better in a cast iron skillet.

This is so good, and a good way to sneak veggies in on your kids.

Stuffed French Toast

crusty italian bread, sliced
whipped cream cheese
bananas, sliced
raspberry preserves
eggs
cream
fresh cream butter

Assemble bottom to top: 1. slice of bread, 2. smear of cream cheese, 3. banana slices, 4. slice of pre-smeared bread with raspberry preserves.

Soak in egg/cream mixture before pan-frying in a little fresh cream butter.

Sorry there are no measurements. I just buy a jar of this and that and throw it together. I'm not the most spectacular of cooks. Serve with thick-sliced applewood-smoked bacon and orange wedges..

Merry Mimosas

Combine in a large pitcher with a small pour spout:
orange juice (or one of those pretty pink mixed versions with strawberry juice)
grenadine
Verdi Spumante

Serve in:
champagne glasses rimmed with honey and dipped in crystalized sugar

Or - make Mint Cocoa for the kids.

hot cocoa mix made according to package directions
whipped cream
1 large candy cane per mug for stirring

Well, this is something that DH's sister used to bring to every get together, and now I do since she stopped. It's really easy, but good:

Cream Cheese Ball

2 8-oz. Pkgs. Cream Cheese, room temp.
4 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 medium onion, finely chopped
5-8 "dashes" Worchtershire sauce
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix everything but the pecans together until they are really mixed up. Roll into a ball and roll in the nuts. wrap in waxed paper, then in foil. Refrigerate for a day or so. It tastes a lot better if you let it "ripen" for a day or two. Serve with crackers.

Gram's Pink Stuff

1 can of condensed milk
1 can of crushed pinapple, drained
1 container of Cool Whip
1 can of strawberry pie filling

Mix. Chill. Enjoy.


I'm pretty sure this is how it's made. My grandmother makes it for basically all of our family gatherings. It's really easy to make and its a nice whippy dessert. It can also be made with cherry or blueberry pie filling, but i like strawberry best.

Cranberry Sauce With Dried Cherries and Cloves

You're either a fan of canned cranberry sauce or not - since I'm not, this is my favorite cranberry sauce recipe! It's perfect with the holiday turkey or great over a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

Cranberry Sauce With Dried Cherries and Cloves

2 1/2 c. cherry cider or black cherry cider or cherry/cranberry juice cocktail
1 8oz. pkg. dried tart cherries
1 c. sugar
1 12oz. pkg. cranberries
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Bring cider to simmer in a heavy saucepan. Remove from heat. Add cherries and let stand 8 minutes. Mix in sugar, then cranberries and cloves. Cook over medium-high heat until cranberries burst, stirring occasionally, about 9 minutes. Refridgerate until cold, about 4 hours (suace will thicken as it cools.) Can be prepared 4 days ahead. Cover and keep refridgerated.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Ooh - one more! I always try to make this at least once during the holidays. It makes breakfast really special. These pancakes have a distinctive, cake-like texture.

(NOTE : I'm copying the recipe down as written. I always make some adjustments to it, so I get the batter to a consistency I like. I always add more water and usually use only 1/2 stick butter.)

Gingerbread Pancakes

3 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. packed dark brown sugar
1 T. baking powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. cloves
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. brewed coffee, cold or at room temp.
4 lg. eggs
1 stick (1/2 c.) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/4 c. lemon juice

Whisk together first 9 ingredients. Whisk together water, coffee, eggs, butter and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add flour mixture and whisk until just combined. Let stand 15 minutes (batter will thicken.)

Brush griddle or skillet with oil and heat over moderate heat until water drops on surface 'dance' when they hit.

Pour 1/4 c. batter on hot griddle and cook until bubbles appear on surface and underside is lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Flip pancakes with spatula and cook until cooked through and edges are lightly browned. Transfer to plate; cover loosley with foil to keep warm. Brush griddle with oil between batches.

Makes about 18 pancakes.

My family are big sweet potato fans....however to change off from the usual sweet potato paie I make mashed sweet potatos with a spicy twist...

About 5 or 6 large sweet potatos, peel and boil till soft.

Drain the water and let cool....

I add two tablespoons of mango chuntney and mash

They are really a nice alternative to mashed potatos and they have a nice spicy twist to them....

I make this cake at Christmas...........if you like chocolate covered cherries, you'll love this cake and it's so easy
1 package of chocolate cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
2 large eggs
1 tsp almond extract
Preheat oven at 350....lightly grease 13 x 9 pan.....set aside
Place cake mix, cherry pie filling, eggs and flavoring in mixing bowl......blend on low for 1 minute....scrape down sides and increase speed to medium and beat for 2 more minutes....scrape down sides if needed....batter should look thick and well blended...pour into prepared pan......smooth top....
Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes (until cake springs back when pressed with finger and the sides pull away from pan).........Remove from oven... cool on rack while preparing glaze.
Glaze
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 tbs LIGHT corn syrup
Put all ingredients into bowl..........microwave on high for 30 seconds intervals stirring after each until all melted..........let cool for about 10 minutes.
Turn cake onto serving dish...........pour glaze over the cake spreading it so that it spills over sides to cover all cake (slowly so that it doesn't puddle to much.......let harden and set...........when it is set you can clean-up any hardened puddling.
To make it special for the holidays I take fruit roll-ups (usually a red color) and run a stripe down the center then across and cut up strips and make bows so that the cake is presented as a "gift".....it looks so cute. Make sure glaze is completely hardened before you add the stripes to it.
I also make a really good fruitcake if anyone wants that. rella
