Hello Nancylanders,
I have a question for Sherry (in Indiana). In your recipe for Impossible Chocolate Cream Pie does it make a difference what kind of chocolate you use? I know different chocolate tastes different.

These are really good pancakes for a change of pace.

Oat Pancakes Recipe

1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup flour
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt (I cut in half)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 tsp. lemon juice

Combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center. Combine eggs, milk, oil and lemon juice and pour into well; stir just until moistened (batter will be thin). Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto lightly greased griddle and cook on both sides until golden brown. It made 12 pancakes, but I don't make mine very large.

This is so delicious and once you take a bite, I'm sure you will agree. It can be served as a salad or dessert. You could probably use Cool Whip instead of whipping cream, but nothing is better than the 'real' stuff, I don't think.

Heavenly Hash Recipe

1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
2-1/3 cups milk
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. Minute tapioca
8 large marshmallows, cut in quarters (about 1-1/2 cup miniature size)
1 can (8 oz.) canned crushed pineapple, well drained
1 cup whipped cream
2 tbsp. chopped maraschino cherries

In large saucepan, beat egg until foamy; add sugar gradually and continue beating until thick and lemon colored. add milk, salt and tapioca, Mixing well. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil ( 6 to 8 minutes). Remove from heat.

Let stand about 20 minutes; fold in marshmallows and pineapple; chill. Fold in whipped cream and cherries. Refrigerate until serving time.

Leftover Ham Recipes  

I am wanting a recipe for the crock pot. It has fresh green beans, bacon and canned potatoes in the recipe. Does anyone have the exact amounts of green beans, potatoes and other ingredients for this.

Our 4 children really liked this when they were growing up, so use to make it a lot. I jut found the recipe again in a old cookbook I put together as a teenager.

Beef Biscuit Roll Recipe

1-1/2 lb. hamburger and
1/2 cup chopped onion; drain.
Stir in:
3 tbsp. ketchup
1 tbsp. flour
1-1/2 tsp. salt ( only use half now)
1/8 tsp. pepper

Cook 1 minute longer; cool slightly while preparing Baking Powder Biscuit dough, adding some celery seeds, poppy seeds and poultry seasoning to dough (as much as you want). Knead lightly for 1/2 minute. Roll out into a 9 x 12 inch rectangle on
floured surface. Spread with meat mixture and roll up as for jelly roll. Place on baking sheet. Slash top in several places. Bake 425 for 20 to 25 minutes.

Baking Powder Biscuit Dough:

2 cups flour
4 tbsp. shortening
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl; cut in shortening and add milk gradually.
Continue according to directions in recipe.

NOTE: I like to add 3/4 cup shredded cheese when adding milk to dough.

Make an ordinary cake into a elegant dessert so effortlessly!
We like chocolate pudding with a yellow cake mix the best for this.

Striped Pudding Cake Recipe

1 pkg. cake mix- any flavor
2 pkgs. (4 serving size) instant pudding
4 cups cold milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Prepare cake mix as directed on package, baking in a 9 x 13 inch pan. After cake is done, poke holes at once down through the cake to the pan with the round handle of a wooden spoon, or use a plastic drinking straw, using a turning motion to make large holes. Holes should be 1 inch apart.

Only after making the holes, combine pudding mix with powdered sugar and gradually stir in milk, then beat at low speed of electric mixer not more than 1 minute. (Do NOT Over-beat). Quickly, before pudding thickens, pour one half of thin pudding evenly over warm cake and into the holes to make the stripes.

Allow remaining pudding to thicken slightly; then spoon over the top, swirling it to "frost" the cake. Chill at least 1 hour. Store cake in refrigerator.

I am a newly wed wife that can't cook. How do you tell if a cake is done? I want it to still be done but not so done that it is hard.
