We keep bananas on hand, but with just two of us in the house they ripen faster than we can eat them. That makes them perfect for roasting and baking into this cheesecake with a nutty crust. —Patricia Harmon, Baden, PA
You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea.
My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!
This recipe is similar to one of my favorite dark fudge recipes. I'll frequently make my white fudge to give as gifts for Christmas and Valentine's Day. It's an interesting contrast to all of the darker candies—and the cream cheese gives it such a nice rich and creamy texture!
My husband and I live on the farm where he was born and raised. We have five children, ranging in age from 17 to 7. I enjoy playing the organ, singing, reading, walking and may crafts.
Everyone who tastes this comments it's a different way to dress up an old-time favorite. You can serve the cookies as appetizers or as a light dessert.
We live in the country on an acreage. I enjoy all types of crafts, especially needlework and sewing. And, ever since I was 12, I've also liked cooking!
One of the nice things about this easy pudding is you don't have to stand and stir it. It's a must for us at Christmas—at Thanksgiving and Easter, too! I also make it into a pie with graham cracker crust that our grandchildren love.
The home my husband and I moved into 11 years ago is unusual. We're retired farmers, and it's built from knotty pine—out of an old barn and hog house! The inside is wood. Donald, who enjoys woodworking, refinished the boards.
These doughnuts are a favorite of our three grown children. Make them up at night—next morning, it's quick and easy to roll them out and fry them when everyone else's getting ready for the day.
Although he works for the electric company, at heart my husband's a farmer...so we give a lot of produce away!
My grandmother served chocolate meringue pie after Sunday dinner each week, usually with an apology it was "too runny" or something else was wrong with it. Of course, it was never less than perfect!
I've been married for 22 years, and my husband and I have two daughters (18 and 15). When I was expecting for the second time, I had a craving for chocolate and baked this pie often.
One morning, as Cecil was leaving the house, there was half a pie on the counter...which I quickly finished! I was so embarrassed I made another one and left just half—I wanted Cecil to think I'd had the willpower not to touch even a piece of pie. It was years before I could tell him what I'd done. How we've laughed about it since!
Both my grandmother and mother made this dessert. I have five children, though (four grandchildren now also)—when my turn at the recipe came, I learned it was best to double it!
We've eaten Saucy Mocha Pudding with ice cream and whipped cream, but it's scrumptious just plain. It's very easy to prepare. So don't wait for a special occasion to try it...it sweetness any meal.
There's no brownie recipe or mix I've ever tried that's better than this! And it's so easy—you can mix it in one bowl in just a few minutes. My husband's grandmother passed the recipe on; now our son makes these brownies for after-school snacks. —Becky Albright, Norwalk, Ohio
