Someone postng the other day said that when her mother gives out a recipe, she always omits one ingredient so that diners say hers is better. I find that mean and deceitful. I handle the situation by telling the recipient of my recipe to make it, enjoy it, and tell people she got it from me. I find this is a really satisfying way to share my r"

I make a dish somewhat like this, but I add chopped or sliced cabbage and serve it over pasta. I's wonderful.....happens to be my son-in-laws favorite recipe. Bless him."

It was great! However, if you're short on time or energy, use Hollandaise Sauce from packets and add the spicy stuff ie: chile power, onion powder, cayenne, etc. to the sauce. It's quick and very tasty. Also, the packages can be found in Bernaise Sauce that is wonderful over Salmon, steak or actually anything. As Mikey would say, "Try it. You'"

This reminds me of Miss Lacey, the elderly cooking teacher who taught at a junior high school when living in Glendale, CA. I hauled that recipe around for years, but sometime in the last 55 years, misplaced it. Over the years, I've found a kajillion recipes for chocolate chip oatmeal, but finally have found the one I had been looking for. Thank...

I make Margarita Mocktails. It consists of salt on the rim of a glass, ice cubes and Margarita Mix (not the kind with liquor in it.) The mocktail tastes surprisingly like a full blown Margarita."

"Help! I now live in an independent facility and barely have a galley stove, no oven. So, I purchased a Breville oven that's supposed to bake, broil, re-heat, stuff like that. I also purchased an induction stove-top appliance with a large pan. However, I need recipes! When I lived at home, I was quite a good cook. Now, I'm at a..."

Call this cheating if you must. However, I always get raves about my baked beans. Chop one onion (whatever size depending on how much you like onion although there's not a heavy onion taste.) Chop about 1/2 pound of bacon in pretty good size chunks. Saute together. Add one can of B&M Baked Beans and mix all together in a casserole dish. Pop...

Please excuse the typos in my last posting. The words I meant to use were fancy (not fandy) and English (not Englkish.) Some days even my fingers won't cooperate with me."

I love cucumber sandwiches. However, mine are not as fandy as this recipe. I use white bread, mayonnaise, Englkish cucumber and little salt. For guests, I remove the crusts and cut them in round or fancy slapes. However, my fanily likes them with the crust on the bread, so I just cut them inhalves or quarters. They are delicious!"

Love, love, love this recipe! I made it a couple of times, but moved and lost the recipe. I'm so glad to have it back! I'm having a dinner party in a week or so and I just know my guests will love it as much as I do!!! Thank you, Mary Nolan.

In direct violation of the rules, I'm reviewing this recipe before I've tried it. However, that steak is just like the one in which we indulged in the 60's and 70's when steak was king! I can't wait to try Anne's recipe! The steak looks fabulous!! "

I made banana pudding a few years ago for a family reunion. However, I took my late mother-in-law's recipe and used Jello Instant Pudding, bananas and vanilla wafers. It's so easy and was scarfed up before even a quarter of the family got to the buffet table. Sometimes, easier really is better!
