Question Of The Day, Wednesday - March 25th!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Good morning everyone! Will spring ever start to show it's warm and sunny side? I'm dying to get outside and work in the garden, but it's only 42 °F, with a 70% chance of rain today!

Here's today's Question Of The Day!

Do you have a special recipe that you're 'famous' for? You know, the one that people say....ooohhh, bring 'x', it's sooooo good!!!

I have a yummy seafood and wild rice casserole that my co-workers love when I bring it to potlucks. I also get requests for my deep-dish raspberry pies. One of the gals that I work with has sons who raise hogs. She trades me the lard for the crusts, for pies and jam. I never realized how light and flaky a pie crust could be, until she gave me lard to use it it.

I am a quiet person with not too many friends so I rarely make dishes for anyone other then my Boyfriend and myself and occasionally our family. The one thing I always make that everyone always asks for the recipe is my famous Greek salad. I make it differently to fit my tastes then any other Greek salad I have tasted.

My butter and Onion Potatos. They are so bad for you but really simple to make. Oh and my Cranberry Walnut Apple Crisp.

Mine is my baked chicken with fried bread at the bottom of rice and my lentil soup.

In general I wouldn't serve what I cook to condemned prisoners, much less people I actually like.

It's defnitely getting it's warm and sunny side here, and you can tell b/c we got our first tornadoes of the season a couple days ago. Fun!

I make these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that I make and a few people I know love them and ask for them. All they are, though, are a Better Homes and Gardens recipe with a couple tweaks like added cinnamon and nutmeg. Apparently I'm the only one that makes the correctly, though, of the people I know that have tried. Maybe it's my oven. *shrug*

For me it is Black Forest Cake.

As a part-time job when I was in high school I would clean houses on weekends. One of the ladies I visited every Saturday morning was a elderly German lady who loved to bake. She taught me how to make the best Black Forest Cake.

Now whenever I am attending a family event I have to bring one.

I'm always asked to bring my 'famous' Chuckwagon Beans (which is bsically a glorified version of baked-beans). I get lots of request for my sugar cookies, too.

I make a pretty good Apple Dump Cake - and I make it the easy cheater way. But everyone loves it.

Spray PAM in a round 9" baking dish
DUMP 1 large can of apple pie filling in
sprinkle with cinnamon
DUMP 1 box of Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix in
sprinkle with cinnamon
DUMP (semi-evenly) 1 stick of butter in
sprinkle with cinnamon
bake @ 350 for approx 1 hour

Serve hot or cold (but hot is best!)
Oh, and don't try to substitute any other cake mix brand. It just doesn't turn out right.

They normally say to me - hey don't worry we've got enough food just bring yourself!

I'm pretty good at making Nachos and chocolate ice-cream though.

I make "Red Hot Apple Pie". It's an apple pie flavored with Red Hot candies. It even won an "Iron Chef" competition at work.
