Well, I was doing fairly well at posting recipes for a while, then the crisis occurred so things slowed down again, then a problem with my eyes, which is almost fixed up.......thank God!! .  I've still got recipes I want to post so will try to get back to it soon.    It sure would be nice to have some new posts to read in the meantime, though...........hint, hint, hint.
Have a great day!!

Granted, these are not as good a fresh cukes but in the winter it's a nice change for a side dish.

6 c. sliced cukes
1 c. sliced onions
1 & 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. cider vinegar
1 TBSP. salt

Mix all together and place in freezer containers.
When ready to enjoy then, thaw in the refrigerator.

Boil 1 dozen eggs (I normally bring my eggs to a boil, cover and turn the heat off and let them set for 13 minutes...........then pour off the hot water and cool the eggs in cold water).  Peel the eggs and cover them with the following mixture:

1 c. water
3/4 c. cider vinegar
2 heaping TBSP. sugar
1 jar of pickled beets (juice and all)

Refrigerate and let set for a couple of days at least.

Hi folks!!
This is a recipe I got many, many years ago from Betty Crocker.

1 pkg. dry yeast
1 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 TBSP oil
2 & 1/2 c. flout

Dissolve yeast in water.
Stir in sugar, salt, oil and flour
Beat vigorously about 20 strokes

Allow dough to rest a while as you prepare the sauce (about 5-10 minutes)

Divide dough in half

Lightly grease your baking sheets

Flour fingers to pat out then add sauce and toppings to your tast.

Bake in a 425 degree oven.

Hi there!!
Just popped in to see if anyone has been here lately.  Sure would be nice if you'd leave a HELLO so I know I'm not the only one who pops in.  I've got plenty more recipes if anyone's interested.

It's about time I find my way back here, huh??!!!  Won't bother with the particulars but will just say I've been distracted.    Hoping I can get with the program and start posting again.  I've got plenty more recipes I want to share.  I've also sent a link to a couple of my nieces, so hopefully they will find their way here eventually, too. 

Our winter has been pretty mild this year so can't complain tooo, tooo much about the weather.........although I do look forward to real Spring!!!  We've had some really nice days but they seem to get mixed in with some not so nice days.  The wind was horrible yesterday!!!  Wasn't quite so bad today, but still windy and lower temps sure made a body shiver!!

Hi all!!  Been a while so thought it was time for a new recipe.
I found this recipe in a book I have had for ages........Best Recipes........from the backs of Boxes, Bottle, Cans and Jars

In my family it's tradition to have oyster stew during the holiday season.  Well, it's a little late, but I had the oysters in the freezer, it was really cold the other day and I'd found this recipe so decided better late than never.  In my opinion this recipe is a winner and will definitely be used again!!

1 dozen (1 pint) shucked large sized oysters
1 cup oyster liquor
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 slice onion
2 stalks of celery (chopped)
1 sprig parsley  (I used a tablespoon of dried parsley)
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. Tabasco pepper sauce
Chopped chives

Drain oysters and reserve the liquor.  Dice oysters into a saucepan and add the liquor.  Slowly bring the oysters to boiling point.  Remove from heat.  Set aside.  In the same pan scald the milk and cream with the onion, celery and bay leaf.  Strain.  Blend the flour into the butter, adding the salt and Tabasco.  Slowly stir the flour mixture into the scalded milk/cream mixture and stir over low heat until thickened.  Add the oysters and cooking liquid and heat to serving temperature.  Garnish with the chives and serve.

ENJOY!! Grin

I was wondering if you were alright. One never knows these days. Glad to hear you are fine and wish the best for you and your family.

Glo's been trucking and busy lately, so this place has been very quiet lately.
