This is a spin-off of a Mexican dip I had once. The original was wicked good, but I was going through an I’m-so-over-Mexican-dip phase and decided to switch it up. Take it to a party—I'll bet you no one else will bring anything like it! —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
The inspiration for me to find this recipe was my husband. He loves cheesecake but was tired of the dry types.
Up here, all the wilderness we could ask for is right outside our back dooreverything from wolves to caribou!
Cherry Chewbilees makes a good dish to carry to potlucks and parties. It's a hit for me at home, toomy husband rates it as one of his favorite desserts.
We both love the country, and the small town we live in has a very rural-sounding nickname...it's know as the "Forestry Capital of the South"!
We enjoy this salad in the spring with fried chicken. It's also good with turkey or chicken casseroles during winter. I even served it at Thanksgiving instead of a Waldorf salad.
I began cooking when I was 8 years old. My parents did the farm chores before breakfast, so I decided I'd surprise them one morning by making biscuits while they were outside.
I ended up with the dough on both hands that just wouldn't let looseI can still see my mother's big grin when she came in and spotted me!
Though these squares may sound time-consuming to make, they're actually easy. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool so you can gobble them up!
This recipe's been in our family for years, I like serving the squares at room temperature, but they're good cold, too. They're delicious topped with strawberries or cherry pie filling.
I'm a "homebody" who enjoys any kind of cooking (for 5 years, I've been baking once a week for my husband's group at work). We have five children and three grandchildren.
At our church, we give seven performances of a Living Christmas Tree every holiday seasonthen hold an open house after each one, I've served this lemony cheesecake at those gatherings for years, and it's always gotten raves.
My mother-in-law loved chocolate maltsand cheesecakes, too. Can you guess who passed this recipe on to me? Sometimes, I substitute pretzel crumbs for the graham cracker crumbs. They make a surprisingly good crust!
This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.
Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home.
When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper!
Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospitalbut my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.
