Joyce from Michigan

My garden is producing lots of Hungarian Wax Peppers. Can any of you wonderful cooks out there give me some ideas for recipes to can or freeze them or to use them in recipes?
Thank you very much.
Sue K

We are having a dessert baby shower in early Oct. We are having a pumpkin theme. Does anyone have any idea beside pumpkin roll & pumpkin pie? Cookie recipes would be good as would dips. Thank you in advance, I know that you ladies & gentlemen will have many ideas.

I would love to have a good old fashion strawberry cobbler made in a 9/13 pan.
I've been gone for awhile but now I'm glad to be back. I know some of the wonderful ladies out there in NancyLand has a good recipe for me. Thank you so much

Kristi, you didn’t say what kind of reception, wedding, birthday, awards. Are you looking for hot or cold recipes. Is this a sit down dinner or a finger foods affair. If you could be a little more specific, please, it would help in the recipe selection.

This is one of my most favorite recipes for dinner rolls, as are so quick to mix up, and yet so very good!

This is a really delicious main dish that our grandchildren request often when they come over to eat with us. This can also be made without
the ground beef, if desired.

Baked Spanish Rice

8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 can (15 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
2 tsp. sugar
Salt and pepper, to taste
1-1/2 cups Minute rice
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef

Brown beef in 3 tbsp. bacon drippings along with onion and green pepper. Drain tomatoes, adding enough water to make 1-1/3 cups liquid. Add liquid, tomatoes, sugar and salt and pepper to meat mixture and stir in rice. Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork; sprinkle with cheese over top and bake 5 minutes more. Garnish with bacon and serve.

NOTE: I also add 1 clove garlic, minced, a little chili powder and a few "splashes" of Worcestershire sauce when I make it.

Apple Kuchen Bars

I just won a purple ribbon at our county fair with these bars. they also won the best in butter!

1/4 tsp. salt
11/2 cups butter, (divided)
4 to 5 Tbsp. ice water
8 cups thinly sliced peeled apples about 8 medium apples
2 cups sugar, (divided)
2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350' Place 2 cups flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in 1 cup of butter until the butter is size of small peas. Like making pie crust. Add just enough water to form moist crumbs. Press into a greased 9\13 baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. cool on a wire rack.

In a large bowl combine apples, 1 cup sugar and cinnamon. Toss to coat. Spoon over crust. Mix the remaining flour, butter and sugar until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle over apples. Bake for about 60 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender. cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

I used a food processor to make the crust and the crumbs for the top. either way they are awesome!
