I love to cook, but I remember my recipes turning out better when I had just 1 child. Hmm.. I think I spend all my patience on the kids and I hurry up to recipe too much. Oh well. No one's got sick of it at least.

And I make great peanut butter cookies. Better than my Mom's !

Being latch-key I had to learn early. Then I lived with Gramma who was always in the kitchen. Then marriage and kids and fixing lunches....and on and on.

I quit about 2 years ago. Now I only  cook for the dog and I just burned my rice cause I was posting and on the phone T2DM. laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

I'm not kidding I really did just burn brown rice for the dog. I had to throw all the doors open....anyone know how to get this stink out????

Roswell,

Here is a recipe for a plain cake that my mother and grandmother used.

2 cups sugar
1 stick or 1/4 lb. margarine or crisco
2 eggs
1 cup milk
3 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

Mix sugar and margarine or crisco togerther (my mother used half butter and half
crisco, melted) . Gently add sugar, eggs and milk. Then add flour and vanilla.

Makes about 2 round layers.

If you will look in the section for recipes, I have a recipe for a seven minute icing
that goes great with coconut or strawberry shortcakes.

Cardie's 7 minute frosting is the best ever.

I had been searching for that good coconut icing recipe I remembered from my younger days and here it was at our 1st Annual Paulding.com Thankgiving Dinner.

Thanks again Cardie for posting the secret family recipe! ohmy.gif

That reminds me of what I would love to get myself. A pressure cooker. Do they still sell those? Oh the sound of that when you are cooking something. I may have to go and find me one.

If they do still sell them, where can I find one and what do they cost?

Wow Shanotuck, btw this is Mrs. Animal biggrin.gif I love to do the same thing on cookbooks! biggrin.gif Another good place to go, is thrift stores, over the years I have found some good ones. I also enjoy collecting the ones like Argo baking powder, Jello, insurance,bank,the ones from cookware. I would love to see yours, its fun to see the pictures in them and the way the writing of recipes have changed over the years.

I did not know there was a Mrs Animal, I don't aim any posts at you, bless you.
I have recipes that have been handed down by my Mom(who passed away at 81, 5 years ago) Her Thanksgiving dressing is a family icon, she taught me before her passing, so now I do it for the family.
Do you like Zuchinni I have a recipe for a casserole. She also has some older ones if I can retrieve them from my neice. Ms Animal let yourself be know when posting.
My mom use to make a Japanese Fruit Cake at Chirstmas, I can see it, it had yellow looking icing, and the layers were different colors. I am hoping my neice can find her recipies.
You may have to get your own Id and start posting some of these ole recipes.
Glad to hear Animal has a better half. Keep him under control.
Let us hear from you. We all need recipes.

You can print out recipes from that topic too.

Sears still sells Pressure Cookers [Canners]. I have one that holds 7 quart jars or 18 pints, and also can be used for cooking by placing the food inside in a pyrex bowl. If they don't have them at the store, you can order them on line.

BE CAREFUL! You cannot leave a pressure cooker un-attended. They can, and will blow up.

For years my forte has been Mediteranean styles [Spanish/French/Italian/Greek], heavy on animal fats, cheese, eggs, cream, fresh vegetables, olive oil and fresh crusty bread. I have researched much of the history of the cuisine and find that after you understand the ingredients and the history of a region, their style of cooking becomes second nature.

We find the foods and wines of Catalunya, Provence, and Tuscanny to be what we enjoy best, and they have the most in common.

However, with the advent of some recent medical challenges, I have had to drastically alter my diet. No alcohol, cut WAY back on the fats [and meat] and total caloric intake, and no caffeine at all.

Ouch!

After several months of floundering about in the kitchen I have jumped into Japaneese cooking with both feet.

It meets the dietary requirements as outlined by my cardiologist, is quite filling, while also satisfying the palate, and does not demand a glass of wine as many of the European menus require, to make a complete meal. Decaf green tea satisfies most of the refreshment requirements.

My teenage son is not very fond of it; yet, but it has been an interesting journey so far, and quite educational for me. And, for really the first time in my kitchen career, it has required learning and studying a sytles of cooking from a historical and sociological view as well as learning their basic recipes.

But Ido miss the Sake and the REAL Green tea [with caffein]. sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

I love to cook but my work shedual puts me home so late most nights I am too tired to do anything more complex then to add some ground meat to some ragu and cook some noodles.

My sisters and I decided to start getting together one Saturday a month and makeing a theme meal. I did the first one and it was a blast. I did a chinese crysanthamum pot (or hot pot) where you boil broth in a charcoal fueled pot and each person takes pre-sliced paper thin meats and cooks those in the broth. Then I added some veges and some celophane noodles and when those were cooked we had a great soup.

I also made a simple salad of soy bean sprouts with chili oil on them.

After dinner we played Ma Jong.

My sister who is hoting it this month is going to have a jamacain theme.
