  • Chocolate Covered Strawberries
    "This is the simplest version of chocolate covered strawberries I know. Paraffin was originally used instead of shortening. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert by the toothpicks into a piece of styrofoam for easy cooling, or simply place them on a sheet of wax paper. White chocolate may be drizzled over the milk chocolate for a fancier look. They are perfect for weddings when decorated with frosting bow ties, bells, butterflies, roses, etc."

  • Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
    My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)

  • Country White Bread or Dinner Rolls (Bread Machine)
    We think this is the best white bread recipe ever! It is a tender bread with a slightly sweet taste. My dinner rolls using this dough are so good, everyone always loves them. It doesn't take to long to make them when the bread maker does most of the work. The cook time is listed for the rolls only because everyone's bread makers cooks at different rates. Mine is older and a regular loaf will take 4 hours and 10 minutes. I have found that 15 balls of dough fit perfectly in the 9X13 pan with sides touching after raising the 2nd time but they can be made whatever size you want. I hope you enjoy this great bread as much as we do.

  • Means' Classic Pie Crust
    This pie crust retains the flavor of an all butter crust, but is flakier because of the shortening. This is an adopted recipe from the RecipeZaar account, and I am delighted to be the new owner of such a winning recipe.The lemon juice isn't in the recipe for lemon flavour... trust me you won't taste it, but rather to work with the flour and prevent the pastry from being tough. I also find that the dough gives a bigger yield than the 9 inch size stated, I roll mine relatively thin and can get a full top and bottom for a 26 cm (12 inch) shallow pie dish. I have included 20+ step by step photographs to help you see
