Bon Apetit!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Found this recipe in one of my many cookbooks, tried it, loved it, and wanted to share it with all of you!

It's very quick, easy, and Yummy!


1/4 cup sugar
a/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups baking mix

3 cups crushed peaches (about 6 fresh or 1 large can)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla or 3/4 each vanilla and almond extract

For dumplings, combine sugar, milk and baking mix. Mix well.

For sauce, combine peaches, sugar, and O.J. in 1 1/2 quart saucepan. Cook over high heat, stirring until boiling. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice and vanilla.

To serve, reheat sauce to boiling, drop dumplings into hot sauce. Cover tightly. Reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes or until done.
Serves about 6 to 8.

This is soooo good with ice cream, or just alone!

Sounds a lot like my grandma's peach cobbler, but with dumplings instead of crust. My fave part of the cobbler is the soggy underside of the crust, and there's never enough crust for my taste. I'll definitely have to try this one out! Thanks for sharing!

That does sound yummy. It is nice to have a new recipe and something I haven't seen before. My husband will really like this one. He is from a home where these kind of desserts were common. I mostly had store bought desserts. Thank you for posting this.

I'm glad you liked the recipe.
I tried to change the thread header when I noticed I'd misspelled Appetit, but it wouldn't let me...it looks like Ape-T*t...:LOL:

If anyones interested, I'd like to start a recipe thread?

I love to cook, but often need motivation since it's just me and the cats...unless Scotts here, but he always tries to help and just gets in the way!
Gotta love him, but "honey, go in the other room and watch T.V. please"

Would anyone like a Recipe thread?

Sounds scrumsious! Can't wait to try it!

I think a recipe thread would be great. And would probably participate. I sometimes like to cook and sometimes NOT! It's not quite as bad since I have retired. And thank God for the invention of the Microwave. Don't know what I would do without mine.

Well think I'll go look for some good,easy recipes.

Found one.

"Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Cookies"

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of peanut butter
1 egg

Mix together and bake at 350 degrees for about 11 minutes.

This just makes a few cookies. They almost taste like PB Fudge.
Really good and really easy. It is hard to let them cool.

Krusteaz, or any generic brand baking mix.
Multi purpose mix, can be used for anything from pancakes, waffles and bisquits, to pie crusts and shortcakes.

When I started this thread I didnt realze we already had a recipe tbread, airprincess was kind enough to tell me about it.

But since its had a few responses and I dont wanna re-type the Peach recipe, I'm gonna leave it here! :tounge2:

Try the Dumpling recipe, it really is a great one!

These pickles are a great summertime snack, but are good any time of the year

I only use 4 to 4 1/2 cups of sugar when I make these, but you can adjust it to suit your taste.

Hot n Sweet pickles

1 gallon dill pickles
4 ounces hot pepper sauce
2 to 4 heads of garlic (bulbs, not cloves)
5 pounds sugar

Drain pickles and rinse. Return to original jar.
Add hot pepper sauce, garlic, and sugar.
Shake well.
Turn jar over every day for 2 weeks.
Makes 1 gallon.

C'mon Ken, it's only a pickle....no ones telling you to eat the whole jar! :homer:
And 5 lb's of sugar really isn't that much...well ok, it is, but not if you only eat 1 or 2...then it's only like a few ounces? :laughing:

What the heck, you only live once, and big hips mean you save $$$ on belts or suspenders!

(just wait til I dig out all the pastry and pie recipes!)

Serves: 6
This easy pasta salad always impresses company, but you need not wait for special occasions to make it.
·\t1 pound good-quality frozen cheese tortellini, vegetable-filled tortellini, or tofu tortellini
·\t1 cup unthawed frozen green peas
·\t2 cups finely chopped fresh broccoli florets
·\t10- or 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers
·\tLiquid from the roasted peppers
·\t2 tablespoons olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
·\t2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
·\t2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
·\t1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
·\tSalt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Begin cooking the tortellini according to package directions.
Layer the frozen peas and the broccoli florets in a large saucepan with l/2 inch of water. Bring them to a simmer and steam over moderate heat, covered, until the peas are thawed and the broccoli is bright green, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the peas and broccoli and rinse them under cool water until they are at room temperature.
In the meantime, drain the roasted peppers, reserving the juices in a small mixing bowl. Cut the peppers into strips. Combine the liquid from the red peppers with the remaining dressing ingredients and mix.
When the tortellini are done, drain them and rinse under cool water until they are at room temperature. Combine them in a mixing bowl with the peas, broccoli, red pepper strips, and dressing. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss again.

This is a great recipe for families. It feeds a family of four. For larger families, simply double the recipe. I also make this alot when I take dinner to people. You can just not cook it before you go, and tell the people how long to cook it. It also reheats well.

Tator Tot Casserole

1 lb. hamburger meat
1 package tator tots
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 onion chopped

In pan, brown meat and onion until meat is cooked. Drain off fat. Put meat and onion in a 2 quart casserole dish, and cover with cream of mushroom soup. Cover this with tator tots, as many as will fit. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until tator tots are brown and crispy.

This is one of my favorite cake recipes. It's almost like a pound cake and tastes best 1 to 2 days after you bake it.

7-Up Cake

1 1/2 cups margarine
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups flour
2 tablespoons lemon extract
3/4 cup 7-up or Sprite

Cream sugar and shortening and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Add flour. Beat in lemon extract and 7-Up. Pour batter into well-floured bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Once cooled, remove from pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Wow Dawn... looks like I got you going eh?

The Roadside Potatoes sound escpecially yummy to me!

Now I'm hungry and have to go to work...where I have a choice of such delicasies as Sausage Dogs, Frozen Burritos, and (gag) Lil Smokies!
Maybe some nice customer will take pity on me and make a dinner run? (fingers crossed)

Will post a couple recipes tonight (this morning) when I get home from work...taking a few cookbooks with me! :laughing2:

post #23 of 32
Cleo - Lil Smokies are ok if you wrap them in Pilsbury cresent roll dough and bake them in the oven. Kind of like pigs in a blanket.
post #24 of 32
do you think if I made it with Veggie Ground meat (boca), it would be ok??

Yes, we do have another Recipe thread, but I started this one before I knew it was here, and was too lazy to re-type the Peach recipe, so I just kept addin to this one! :

Glad some of the recipes got sampled, I was camping all week-end and my cooking was limited! :laughing2: But I always buy meat in the BIG packages, marinade it in smaller portions and different flavors, and freeze it...

.so this camping trip we had Sweet/Hot/Smoky chicken breasts cooked over an open fire, Bakers and corn on the cob, both slatherd in butter, wrapped in foil, and cooked over the fire also.. YUMMMM
(just don't forget to poke the heck out of the spuds so the butter soaks in and they cook through)

:flower:Lilyrose, I also made a small batch of the pickles last Thursday, they didnt get turned for a couple days, but so far they smell Good!

Darn, now I'm hungry again!

post #30 of 32
And I didn't get my cake baked. Too many other things going on. I'll try it sometime this week.

I'm like you Ckeo, everytime I check this thread I get hungry. And we are having a very basic meal tonight. Bacon, scrambles eggs and raisin bread toast. Don't feel much like cooking and am hungry for eggs. Good thing my hubby will eat anything I fix.
