I guarantee you will really love this pie, and is ideal to serve on Easter. For taking to a potluck, I double the ingredients using 2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 6 tbsp. powdered sugar and 1/2 cup melted butter for the crust in a 9 x13 inch dish.

Creamy Lemon Pie Recipe

1-3/4 cups cold milk
2 pkgs. (4 serving size) vanilla instant pudding
1 can (6 oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 tub (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 prepared (6 oz.) graham cracker crust
Lemon slices for garnish on top (optional)

Pour milk in large bowl. Add pudding mixes and beat with wire whisk 30 seconds. Add thawed lemonade concentrate. Beat with whisk for 30 seconds (mixture will be thick). Fold in thawed whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate 4 hours, or until set. Garnish with thin lemon slices, if desired. Store leftover pie in refrigerator. Serves 8.

NOTE: I add grated rind of 1 lemon to pie filling and I also saved some of the crumb mixture to sprinkle on top of the dessert in the 9 x 13 inch dish, when I double the recipe to feed more people.

I am cooking two 10 pound hams, fully cooked, bone in. I will be cooking them in the same pan.

Do I need to add more time to the cooking because of the two hams or just cook as if there is only one ham in the oven?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Anne in Canada had some great tips for cooking ham and making it less salty. I soak my ham in sugared water for at least 1 day .I change the water 2x a day, then wash off with fresh water, dry with paper towels then baste with ginger ale.

Recipes the consistency of Cool Whip, but that do not include Cool Whip as an ingredient, in the 4/14 newsletter. This may be what she wanted.

Whipped Cream Frosting Recipe

1-1/2 cups milk
4 rounded Tablespoons flour

In a small saucepan, combine milk and flour. Cook over medium heat until thick, while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool in refrigerator. When cooled, it will be thick like paste.

In a mixer bowl, cream the following until fluffy:
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup shortening

Add 2 teaspoon vanilla extract and the cooled paste. Whip on high speed until light and fluffy.

This frosting is very creamy and fluffy, but not too sweet. Leftovers can be kept in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Makes enough for a 9x13 cake.

I think the Homemade Creme Fraîche Recipe, I posted on 3/14/14, with the addition of some cocoa would probably work.

Peggy's Ranch Beans Recipe

When I fix this never any thing left!! I have taken to many potluck.

2 lbs dry beans
2 large onions chopped
6 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 small bottle or can taco sauce
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 4oz can diced green chili
1 14oz can diced tomatoes (I use the one with garlic and oregano)

Soak beans in cold water overnight. Drain, wash and cover with 2 inches of water.

Cook over moderate heat for about 1 hour. Add in water as needed. Add onions and garlic, green chili's, taco sauce, oregano, cumin and tomatoes, mix well. Cook over medium heat 1 1/2 hours
until beans are tender. If you want spicier beans add 1TBSP red chili powder. Now at the end add salt and pepper as this shortens the cooking time if added last. I put all into crock pot let cook at least 6 hrs on low.

This can be converted into chili con carne by adding 2 lbs. chopped or ground beef. This can be frozen and reheats well just add a little broth or water to it.

Corn Casserole Pudding Recipe
This is a recipe that is basically a corn pudding but without the overpowering sweetness that some have. If you like the sweetness in yours, sugar could be added to taste.

Make a basic white sauce by combining;

2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons flour.
1 teaspoon salt

Whisk in 1-1/2 cups milk and stir till thickened.

Let cool a bit and add 1 egg, lightly beaten. Cooling avoids the egg "cooking" and making lumps.

Stir in 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained or can use 2 cups frozen corn, thawed

Pour into a buttered baking dish and covered with buttered cracker crumbs. Bake at 350º for 45-60 minutes. Knife inserted in center should come out clean.

Hello Everyone,
I have a challenge for anyone up to it. I want to make a real cheesecake - my first ever, but I don't know where to start or what recipe to try. (I do have the proper pan.) Does anyone have a recipe that is not too complicated and has reliable results? My husband would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks, Sonhe in Canton
