OK. I was told this was the best way to do this, so let's share everyone. Is there a dish you make that everyone raves about or is a huge hit with your family and friends? Please post here.

I make a mexican layer dip everytime we have parties or gatherings and EVERYONE loves it. It is a bit different than most I have had, and by far, the best!

Bottom layer- refried beans (I get a can, I think about 8 or 10 oz. can)
Next- Guacamole
Next- mix sour cream with 1 packet of taco seasoning mix
Next- chopped green onions
Next- one can sliced pitted black olives and one can (or jar) green olives
Next- a bag of mexican shreaded cheese
Next- chopped grape or cherry tomatoes (I also do a few extra black & green olives on top for extra color)
Serve with tortilla chips or scoops.

No matter where I bring this, people go nuts for it. Most people dislike at least 1 thing in it, but they still absolutely love it & chow down on it!
It does cost around $20 for all of the ingredients, but it is well worth it!!
Try it once, you will do it again and again!
Little lady, big mouth!

Anybody have a good goulash recipe? Or how about a pound cake? We had a family friend that would make us one whenever we came into town for the holidays. She was a great friend of grandmother's. When we came into town, it was there waiting at my grandmother's. It was perfect. Crusty topping that could not be beat. SOOOOO good. You can't buy one like that at the store anywhere. Anyone with an old family recipe for one.

Sounds like the same pound cake my family has passed down over the years. I believe the topping was made with sugar, almond flavoring and some other one, melted on the stove and brushed on. Thats what makes it have that crusty outside. My mom made this everytime I went to visit (or any of us kids) and we would have a slice in the mornings with our coffee. Great memories..............
Anyway I'll be glad to post the receipe later because it's at home and I am not. It's a booger to make because it's from scratch but it is sooo good.

Sounds like it may be the same. I know people in the family have tried to figure out her recipe. She gives out part of it, but always puts down something wrong to throw us off. It has been a running joke for years. Everyone tries to figure out the right way it should be and tries to make it, but of course, no one has ever succeeded.

I don't know where this came from so I can't give proper credit. If you love raw cookie dough you will love this.

Faux Cookie Dough

1 pkg original Chips A Hoy chocolate chip cookies
1 med container of Cool Whip
1 cup milk

Dip each cookie momentarily into the cup of milk and line the bottom of a desert dish. Top layer of cookies with Cool whip. Then another layer of dipped cookies, followed by Cool Whip. Continue layering until your last layer is Cool Whip. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Using a 1 1/2 quart round casserole dish will give you more layers.

My son grew up eating this and loved it so much that he now makes it for all his fellow firefighters at the firehouse.....they love it wub.gif wub.gif

I have a recipie for Whiting that everyone always loves! It tastes like something you would get at a restaurant. Here goes.

Brush thawed whiting filets with lemon juice and broil 6 minutes. While broiling, mix 1/2 C parmesan cheese, 1/4 C margerine, 3 Tbsp mayonnaise, a dash of hot sauce, salt and pepper (to taste) with a whisk until creamy. Take fish out of the broiler and spread the cheese mixture onto it. Return to broiler for 3 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly.

It's DELICIOUS, quick to fix, and my family loves it! The sauce is delicious. A 2 lb bag of frozen whiting will feed 4-5 people. I serve it with rice pilaf and fresh sauteed green beans.

No. Anything you would like to share. Even if it is not something that I would try or want, no matter what you put on here, someone will try it. As we try these recipes we need to share how they turned out.

Speaking of pineapple from the post above, how about this:

Pineapple Salad instead of the traditional salad. This is one of my family's favorites.

Lettuce
pineapple chunks
mayonnaise
shredded cheese

optional: my mom used to add raisins and peanuts, but those were not for me.

My best is country fried steak but I don't have a recipe. Here is a very simple one that is absolutely great.
4-6 chicken breasts boiled
4-6 potatoes cut into chunks and boil to almost done
2 cans golden mushroom soup(not cream)
1 can english baby peas
Place the cooked chicken on the bottom of a 9" x 13" dish with potatoes placed around chicken. Pour peas over all of this and then pour the soup(undiluted)over the entire dish. Heat in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Even better the next day. It is the whole meal except for maybe bread and a salad.

When I was a kid, on Sunday after Church Dinner, we would have Pot Roast with potatoes, carrots and onions. At the end of the day the potroast that was left over was shredded. Nanny would then peel and cut up some potatoes and onions. She would cover these with water and boil them til they were tender, then add butter, salt and pepper. Next she would add the shredded pot roast and simmer this for about 30 minutes to an hour. During this time she would make a pan of homemade cornbread. We all looked forward to eating this. We called this Hash.

I work now and don't have alot of time to start with cooking the pot roast, so I have came up with my own recipe to eat this old time Hash recipe.

6 to 8 potatoes - wash, peel and cut into chunks
1 medium onioin - peel and dice
water
salt
pepper
2 tbsp butter or margarine
2 to 3 cans Libby's Roast Beef with Gravy


5 quart dutch oven (or like Nanny used to - your biggest boiler)
Place potatoes and onions in pot. Add water to be about 3 inches above the potatoes and onions. Cook on high until boiling. Reduce heat, and add salt, pepper and butter. When potatoes and onions are tender, reduce heat to simmer.

Open Roast beef and cut up into smaller pieces. Add this including gravy to boiler. Simmer this for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Corn Bread

2 cups Martha White cornmeal mix
1 1/3 cups Buttermilk
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water

Mix ingredients together and pour into a baking pan. Lightly grease or spray 8 to 9 inch round baking pan. Cook 450 degrees 20 to 25 minutes.

This Hash recipe can also be made into a homemade soup by adding any kinds of vegetables (can, frozen or fresh).

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did as kids. I enjoyed the memories while writing this!

1.5 lbs chicken, cooked and diced
2 cans cream of mushroom (low sodium, fat free)
16 oz sour cream (Fat free)
2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers
1/2 stick butter (I use a few tbsps of Smart Balance butter)
4 tbsp poppyseeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cook chicken (I cook in a pan in EVOO) and dice. Place chicken in the botom of the casserole dish. Mix cream of mushroom and sourcream together and place on top of chicken. Crumble up Ritz Crackers and mix with melted butter and poppy seeds. Place on top of chicken and wet mixture. Place in oven for about 35 minutes. Just til the crackers turn golden brown.

So delish!

Seeing the hash recipes reminds me of a meal that my family enjoys and its really easy.

1 can Libby Roast Beef
1 pack of minute rice

Heat the roast beef and cook the pack of rice. Mix it together once its done, add a salad and you've got a quick, good meal in less than 15 minutes.

Chicken in Lemon Sauce

Makes 8 servings


1/4 cup butter or margarine
4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts split
2 Tablespoons dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt ( I omit this you really don't need it)
1/8 teaspoon pepper ( White)
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese ( or Kraft )
1 cup sliced mushrooms
Red grapes and lemon peel for garnish ( you really don't need it, just eat it)

melt butter in large skillet over medium heat: add chicken. Cook, turning about 10 min
or until chicken is brown and tender.
Remove chicken to ovenproof serving dish, Add wine to the pan you just fried it in,
And then the lemon peel, lemon juice.
cook and stir for one minute on medium heat.
stir in salt and pepper
gradually add cream, stiring constantly, until hot: do not boil
Pour cream over meat and add mushrooms and cheese and broil til it is lightly browned

This is so easy...and I do make double the sauce and put more wine in it. Because its great on rice or noodles or even over a bed of broccoli.

I also want to add that I have made one of the potato soup recipes on here. My family loves it. I made it the first time, and it was such a hit, they asked me to make it again this weekend. I can't find the recipe on here now to give the OP credit for it, but it is the one that used potaotes, butter, flour, sour cream, velveeta cheese, milk, and bacon. I am taking some of the leftovers to work today for my lunch.

Seeing the hash recipes reminds me of a meal that my family enjoys and its really easy.

1 can Libby Roast Beef
1 pack of minute rice

Heat the roast beef and cook the pack of rice. Mix it together once its done, add a salad and you've got a quick, good meal in less than 15 minutes.



My version of this recipe:

2 cans Libbys Roast Beef - open and chop beef into smaller pieces
2 pkg Beef Rice-a-roni

Prepare rice-a-roni according to package. When almost ready add beef with gravy and finish cooking until rice-a-roni is done.

I serve this with garlic bread, green peas, and applesauce.

Anybody have a good beef stew recipe using ground beef instead of chunks of beef stew? I would like to make some for dinner this evening along with some sweet cornbread.

Anybody? I really want some tonight.

Sorry, mine uses stew meat, and beer.

I am going to Super Walmart on Dallas Hwy. No seafood, but chicken or beef either one.
