I have not submitted anything for a week or so, as our computer died. It took a few days to get the new computer set up with my adaptive equipment and getting comfortable with the new versions of Windows, Word and the other software. Our computer was extremely old.

Robbie's Favorite Cake Recipes
Here are two favorite cake recipes. My family still thinks German Chocolate cake and red velvet cake are two of the best cake recipes. I am not including those recipes since most people already seem to have them. You can use favorite coffees in the first recipe. I often use hazelnut.

This is by far one of the most yummiest dessert I've ever eaten! It is light and luscious and best of all, you don't need to heat up your kitchen to make it! It looks so pretty in a clear glass dish.

Cherry Delight Recipe

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large tub (12 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling

Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter together and press into a 9x13" glass dish. Chill while preparing filling. Whip together the two packages cream cheese, milk, granulated sugar and vanilla (a wire whip works good) and then whip powdered sugar into thawed topping and fold into cream cheese mixture, using wire whip.

Spread gently over chilled crust. Spread with cherry pie filling (I add about 1/4 tsp. almond extract to it) and chill
for a few hours, if you can manage to stay out of it!
NOTE: I usually use 1-1/2 cans of the pie filling, as like it thicker on top.

We really like this dish a lot. It is a large casserole, as feeds 10 people, but can easily be cut in half. I'm sure you could use cooked cubed chicken too, in place of the ham and any kind of cream soup will work.

Crunchy Top Ham and Potato Casserole Recipe

2 lbs. southern-style frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups dairy sour cream
2 cups cubed cooked ham
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup chopped green onion
1-1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

2 cups crushed cornflakes
1/4 cup melted butter

Combine all casserole ingredients and mix well. Put in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle in top of casserole. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

I've been making this pork chop recipe for more years than I can count, as one we've always enjoyed so much, and hope you will also.

Pork Chops and Stuffing Recipe

4 pork chops
Cooking oil
3 cups soft bread cubes
2 tbsp. chopped onion

Weekly Specials from The Prepared Pantry 

Hello Nancy and all Landers,
I have a gazillion cucumbers lol. My MIL who lived thru the depression made the bestest Sweet Garlic Dill pickles. She was from Austria so I assume that's where the recipe came from. She has passed away now and her recipe with her. Would anyone have a TNT recipe for these pickles?

I have went online and there are several recipes but none sound like what she made. These are the pickles you just can't stop eating lol.

Most recipes online call for a whole clove garlic in each jar but this sounds like an awful lot to me. By the way all my neighbors are really glad I have so many cucumbers as I give them all some each week.

Homemade Bisquick Recipe

7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup vegetable shortening, cut into cubes or spoonfuls
4 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar, optional ( could use splenda)
1 tablespoon salt

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar (if using) and salt, and toss together. Drop shortening into dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter to cut it in. Continue using your pastry cutter (or two forks) to blend mixture together until it resembles small pebbles.

Note: you could combine everything together in the food processor if you want.

Transfer mixture to an air-tight container and store, refrigerated, for up to 3 months. By you making it at home there are no preservatives !!!!!!

Re:I am still interested in the recipe for crockpot chicken gizzards. Would appreciate it if someone can help me with that. Thank you.
Judy in In

Judy, I found this in the Feb 3rd Newsletter. I hope it is what you wanted. Pat SoCal

I love your newsletter, reading it is one of the highlights of my day.

Re: This is for NancyLander's husband loves chicken gizzards. My preparation method is very simple.

Preparing Chicken Gizzards Recipe

Wash them well, being certain to have all the extraneous pieces of tough yellow lining out. Then, I dredge about half of them in flour, to which I have added the herbs and spices that sound good to me that day. I then brown and drain all of the gizzards (those that have been dredged in flour and those that have not). Finally, they go into the crock pot with a small amount of water (maybe 1/2 cup) and cook on low for 6-8 hours. That's it! My son, also loves gizzards and makes his own some mornings before he leaves for work, so they are ready when he gets home -- not really a well rounded meal, but with a salad not too bad.
I hope your son enjoys them!
