RE: Casseroles for a convalescent (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: caliloo on 03.28.2010 at 08:16 am in Cooking Forum

This is a super easy one that is very tasty too. You also might want to get him some Stouffer's frozen casseroles to keep on hand. The Shepherds Pie is good (red meat, should make him happy and you dont have to actually make it) and there are some others that might appeal to him. Hope he's feeling better soon.

Chicken & Noodle Casserole
Recipe courtesy of Campbell's Kitchen

.Prep Time:15 minInactive Prep Time:--Cook Time:25 minLevel:
--Serves:
4 servings. Ingredients
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 cups medium egg noodles, cooked and drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Directions
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Stir the soup, milk, vegetables, chicken, noodles, Parmesan cheese and black pepper in a 1 1/2-quart casserole.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir the chicken mixture. Top with the cheese. Let stand until the cheese is melted.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with a steamed vegetable blend: broccoli, cauliflower and carrots, and a Caesar salad. For dessert serve fresh strawberries topped with whipped topping.

For Golden Onion Chicken & Noodle Casserole, substitute 1/2 cup crushed French fried onions for the Cheddar cheese.

For Hearty Chicken Casserole with a Twist, substitute 2 cups cooked corkscrew-shaped pasta for the egg noodles.

Cost per recipe: $5.46

Tip:
Easy casseroles like this one are a simple way to transform leftovers. Cooked chicken, turkey or ham will all work in this recipe.

Nothing too earth shattering here, but a great frosting that reminds me of Pepperidge Farm chocolate layer cake frosting. A few changes: I used 3/4 cup butter and one cup shortening. I used 3 cups confectioners sugar and one cup cocoa powder. This recipe is from Allrecipes.com

Buttercream icing

Ingredients
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Directions
1.In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and vanilla. Blend in the sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the milk, and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Keep icing covered until ready to decorate.

Man I haven't had poke in ages. Great tip about asking for the scraps instead of the fillets! (Corn chips? Never thought of that!)

I had cream cheese and cocoa powder to use up, and Terri answered my plea for a brownie recipe using those. Turns out I had only one brick of cream cheese instead of the two I thought I had, but I think it worked out ok anyway. it's certainly the prettiest brownies I've made in a while. (Do cream cheese brownies freeze? Or does the texture go weird?)

Changes I made (mostly to use up odds and ends)
-- cut sugar in the chocoate part by 1/3 cup
-- doubled vanilla (which emptied that bottle)
-- Added additional 1/3 cup nuts (because otherwise I would have had just enough nuts left in that bag to be annoying.
-- added 1 tsp dark cherry extract to cream cheese layer (to get rid of THAT bottle).
-- Increased the temp by 20 degrees for the altitude.

Will definitely make again. I think next time maybe no nuts, though. I love walnuts, but in this case it is guilding the lily.

Terri's Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
adapted from a bunch of recipes

1/2 c melted or very soft butter
1.5 c sugar
1 t vanilla
1.25 c flour
2/3 c cocoa
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
4 eggs
1/2 c chopped nuts and/or chocolate chips (optional)

Cream Cheese Swirl

16oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 c sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla

In a large mixing bowl, add melted or VERY softened butter. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Add in one pile on top, flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder; then crack all 4 eggs. Mix all together well with a wooden spoon. Don't beat!

Grease a 9x13 pan with a bit of butter, and spread all but about 1/2 c of batter in the pan.

In the mixer bowl(electric mixer needed) add in the softened cream cheese, and beat until smooth. Add in vanilla and egg. Beat again until smooth.

Spread the cream cheese topping over the brownie batter, but not all the way to the edges. Drop on the remainder of the brownie batter, and cut through the batters with a knife making a swirl pattern.

Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes. Don't over bake!

I picked up a bag of cinnamon chips on the 50% off rack and I didn't know what to do with them so I tried one of the recipes on the bag. We loved them and I will make them again for sure. I used my little cookie scooper and got a lot more than 4 dozen. Probably about 60-70 cookies.

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chips Cookies
Hersheys

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips
3/4 cup raisins
1. Heat oven to 350F.

2. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour and baking soda; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in oats, cinnamon chips and raisins (batter will be stiff). Drop by heaping teaspoons unto ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes on until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. About 4 dozen.

BAR VARIATION: Spread batter into lightly greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake at 350F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool; cut into bars. About 3 dozen bars.

RE: recipe for rolls using a cake mix (Follow-Up #4)

posted by: angelaid on 02.22.2010 at 02:02 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

Got this recipe for cinnamon rolls from a Tupperware party at least 35 (Gulp!) years ago and it's been a family favorite ever since.

Cinnamon Rolls

2 pkg yeast
2 cups warm water
Box of white cake mix
4 cups flour

Filling

1 stick butter or margarine (melted)
Sugar to your taste *
Cinnamon to your taste *
Walnuts (optional)

Vanilla Frosting

* I keep a big shaker bottle of sugar/cinnamon mixture in the cupboard for toast, cereal, etc., not sure of the exact ratio.

Dissolve 2 pkgs yeast in 2 cups of warm water in large bowl. Add box of cake mix and 4 cups of flour. Mix well. Let rise to double, about one hour (in my oven, just barely turned on).
Roll flour mixture into large rectangle on a floured surface, to about 1/4 to inch thick. Pour melted butter along center of rectangle and spread to edges until entire surface is covered with butter. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon (I spread it on pretty thick) and add nuts if desired. Very gently roll the rectangle into one (lengthwise) log. I use a floured spatula to lift and roll, lift and roll, etc. Cut roll into 3/4 inch slices. Let your rolls rise for another 45 minutes and bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Frost with vanilla frosting while still warm.

AMBROSIA FRUIT SALAD

1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 (13 oz.) can pineapple chunks, drained
1/2 c. miniature marshmallows
1 c. coconut
1 c. sour cream

Put together in bowl, let set overnight. Put ambrosia fruit salad in mold.

You mean the one called "Glorofied rice"? It has many many variations....
The basic is 3 cups of cooked rice
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream whipped and sweetened and flavored witn a teaspoon of vanilla
And fruit...
Either a big can of crushed pineapple with the juice, and/or bananas...can add some marischino cherries and'or mini marshmallows..
Or 4 small cans of mandarine oranges...or a mix of oranges and pineapple...
Some people even added jello mixed with the whipped cream and then added that to the rice...
And some people called it heavenly hash..
That what you mean?

Here is a link that might be useful: heavenly hash

RE: What's your favorite girl scout cookie? (Follow-Up #16)

posted by: jojoco on 02.21.2010 at 06:05 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

Coming out of lurkdom to tell you how to make your own thin mints and pb patties. Super easy..

Thin mints

Take a block of almond bark melting chocolate (doesn't contain almonds, just the name). Melt in the top of a double boiler. You can add a tbs or so of shortening to thin it if you'd like. Add a few drops peppermint oil (not extract). Stir. Dip ritz crackers in one at a time and let dry on parchment paper (or wax, or quick release foil).
Instant girl scout cookies.

PB patties:
(Easiest way): Put a bunch of smooth peanut butter into a heavy duty zip loc bag. Snip a corner of the bag. Put a splat between two ritz crackers. Refrigerate cookies for an hour or so. Melt almond bark (again, you can add shortening if needed). Stir til smooth. Dip sandwich cookies into it. Dry on parchment paper...
These are MUCH better than the gs variety. My dh cannot be trusted when I make these.

Enjoy.

RE: Peach Cobbler Dump Cake What went wrong? (Follow-Up #15)

posted by: kat__wa on 03.08.2010 at 08:02 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

Minnie, when I make my dump cakes I leave out the butter.

Use a cake mix that has NO PUDDING in the mix. Duncan Hines is what I use.

I've never made it with peaches, but I make it all the
time with pineapple OR mixed fruit.
I find that it always works out best by

Mix the can of fruit into the cake mix. Pour in to a
9X13 pan and bake ... what ever the box says..
I bake 325 for about an hour.

I would think that the smaller the peach bits, the better it would mixl up.

I add a can of pineapple to the mix
or a can of mixed fruit.

I've tried low sugar cherry pie, but it works best
when you mix the cake mix with a white soda, pour 3/4 of that into the cake pan, spoon the cherry pie mix over the top and then spoon the remaining cake mix over that and bake.

Pour some of the Costco 3 berry mix into a 9 X 13 cake pan. Add a 12 oz can of white pop to cake mix, stir and then pour over top of berries. Bake for an hour or so and makes a great cobbler
>>
. .
. .

I bet you could put the peaches on the bottom, then add clear soda to cake mix... (fresca works well) stir and pour over peaches, cook for about an hour or a little less.

that sounds good!

posted by: sue_va on 03.07.2010 at 11:01 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

Minnie, Sorry your Cobbler didn't work out.

You may want to try this one.

This is from a recipe book published by the Kentucky Education Association in 1969. My DH got it for me when he was at a NEA Convention. I've used it a gazillion times, as recently as 3 weeks ago.

Ten Dollar Fruit Pie
1 stick butter
1 quart sweetened fruit
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Melt butter in a large baking dish. Heat sweetened fruit (*or use canned, including juice.)

Make a batter from remaining ingredients. Pour batter into melted butter. Pour fruit on batter.

Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes. Crust will rise to top. Serve hot.

*I use canned and prefer sliced to halves.

It got it's name because according to legend, it was one of those recipes someone asked for in a restaurant and then was charged for.

BIG CHEWY OATMEAL-RAISIN COOKIES

Makes 16 to 20 large cookies

If you prefer a less sweet cookie, you can reduce the white sugar by one-quarter cup, but you will lose some crispness. Do not overbake these cookies. The edges should be brown but the rest of the cookie should still be very light in color. Parchment makes for easy cookie removal and cleanup, but it's not a necessity. If you don't use parchment, let the cookies cool directly on the baking sheet for two minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Ingedients:

2 sticks (1/2 pound) unsalted butter,
softened but still firm
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups raisins (optional)

1. Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions; heat oven to 350 degrees. In bowl of electric mixer or by hand, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.

2. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together, then stir them into butter-sugar mixture with wooden spoon or large rubber spatula. Stir in oats and optional raisins.

3. Form dough into sixteen to twenty 2-inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of two parchment papercovered, large cookie sheets. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 22 to 25 minutes. (Halfway during baking, turn cookie sheets from front to back and also switch them from top to bottom.) Slide cookies on parchment onto cooling rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.

DATE OATMEAL COOKIES

Substitute 1 1/2 cups chopped dates for the raisins.

GINGER OATMEAL COOKIES

I'm probably too late for this, but maybe next time you might want to try one of these. This is the whiskey sauce recipe I use--probably very similar to the one danihoney is talking about.

Also a couple of different sauces I haven't tried yet, but plan to.

WHISKEY SAUCE FOR BREAD PUDDING

1 stick butter
1 c. milk
1 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 c. cold water
3/4 c. bourbon

Combine butter, milk and sugar in a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Combine cornstarch and water stirring well; add to butter mixture. Add bourbon and bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Cook 1 minute. Yield: 2-3/4 cups

BLUEBERRY-LEMON SAUCE

1 tsp. grated lemon rind
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1-1/2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring contantly. Reduce heat; add blueberries and simmer, stirring constantly 3-5 minutes or until thickened. Yield: 1-1/2 cups

CARAMEL SAUCE

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. heavy cream
Pinch of salt
2 tsp. vanilla

Bring butter, the sugars, cream and salt to a boil and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

BANANAS FOSTER SAUCE

1 c. light brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. heavy cream
2 Tbsp. rum
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large bananas

Slice bananas into 1/4" slices. Set aside. Stir together sugar, butter, cream, rum and vanilla in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Mixture will bubble up as it caramelizes. Stir in bananas. Serve over warm bread pudding.

Here is the recipe for the vanilla sauce that I make to
go over bread pudding.

Vanilla Sauce
1 C. sugar
2 T. flour
1 1/2 C. whipping cream
(sometimes I use half and half)
1/2 C. butter
2 t. vanilla
Blend sugar and flour together in a saucepan.
Whisk in whipping cream, add butter and cook
over medium heat, whisking often, unti thickened.
Add vailla and stir.
Serve warm or cold.
This is really good on warm bread pudding or
apple cake! It's also really good on chocolate ice
cream!

Oh my stars! Nodakgal's caramel rolls!

posted by: patti43 on 02.20.2010 at 03:00 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

I made them today and let me tell you, I could eat the whole pan. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe! I'm posting it again for those who may have missed it.

QUICK CARAMEL ROLLS (nodakgal)

2 loaves frozen bread dough (thaw well, if it rises a little bit it will be ok)
soft butter
brown sugar
cinnamon
Topping:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons thick cream

Let dough thaw. Roll out one loaf at a time and spread with butter, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up like a jelly roll, cut, and put in greased pan. Let rise until rolls touch each other. Cover rolls with topping. Bake at 350 degree for approx 15-20 minutes.
**I just pour the caramel in the bottom of the pan and put rolls on top and let rise, bake, then invert on to another pan**

I did it the way the recipe called for and poured the cream and sugar mixture over the top. I cut the recipe in half and it made 12 nice rolls.

Well I haven't made any of these ...yet...but I am impressed at the many choices. You DDW always have a mini cookbook's worth of homey recipes that do sing of the country and an earlier day.

Need I also say I am a Virgo, once married to a pie-in-the-sky airhead of an Aquarius???(Fortunately he made a living from that 'up in the clouds' mindset.) Now I have a solid Taurus, sadly more solid after a few too many of my own rasperrry bars. I made more mistakes making these the first year of marriage...but god help us, we ate them all.

Raspberry Almond Bars
1/2 C butter or margarine
1 package (10-12 oz) vanilla or white chips, divided
2 eggs
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
1 C flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C seedless raspberry jam
1/4 C sliced almonds(I used slivered)
In a saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat; add 1 cup chips (do not stir). In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs til foamy; gradually add sugar. Stir in chip mixture and almond extract. Combine flour and salt; add to egg mixture just til combined. Spread HALF of batter into a greased 9" square pan, baked at 325 degrees for 15-20 min or until golden brown. Microwave jam until it's extremely runny but not hot; spread over warm crust. Stir remaining chips into remaining batter and drop by spoonfuls over the jam layer. Sprinkle w/almonds. Bake 30-35 min more . Cool and cut into bars. Yield: about 2 dozen.

LPink, you'll have to come to morning tea instead! These things are never served as desserts in my part of the world.

Below are several apple slices for you. The last one calls for tinned pie apple - well, just make your own by stewing up a few apples to your desired consistency. Add a bit of lemon juice to reduce the browning effect. (Me, I'd just zap the apple slices in the microwave for a minute or two!) Mind you, I'm not a big fan of cooked apple.

Apple Slices
5 apples, finely sliced
1 cup sugar
pinch ground cloves
juice and grated rind of 1 lemon

Cook all together until apple is tender.

Pastry:
90g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
vanilla
3 tablespoons custard powder
3 tablespoons milk
3 cups self raising flour

Cream butter sugar and vanilla together. Add egg, sifted flour, custard powder. Mix with milk. Roll out half and place in a slab tin. Cover with apple and cover the whole with remaining pastry. Bake in a moderate oven until done. When cold, cut into slices.

Apple Walnut Squares
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 medium tart apple, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Cream butter and sugar. Add the egg. Combine flour and cinnamon. Gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in apple and walnuts. Pour into a greased 20cm square cake tin. Bake at 180C for 35-40 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Apple Oat Slice
1 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups peeled and thinly sliced apples
icing sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 180C. Stir flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon until well blended. Stir in brown sugar and oats. Mix in butter, egg and vanilla. Put half the dough in bottom of a greased slab tin pan. Sprinkle with nuts and arrange apple slices over top. Sprinkle with remaining dough. Press in lightly. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan. Sprinkle with icing sugar, if desired.

Apple Slice
185g butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
large can unsweetened pie apple
2 tablespoons sugar, extra
icing sugar

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in sifted flour and spices. Spread half the mixture over the base of a greased slab tin. Cover evenly with the apple, sprinkle with extra sugar. Spread remaining mixture evenly over apple. Bake at 180C for 50 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in the tin before turning onto a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

1 1/ 2 cups flour
1/ 2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder

1/ 4 tsp almond extract (optional)

FILLING:

2 cups thinly sliced fresh plums (3-4 medium)
1 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. flour
1/ 3 cup raspberry preserves

Heat oven to 375 degrees. For crust and streusel, combine first 4 ingredients; mix well. Add combined butter and almond extract, mixing until moistened. Reserve 1 1/ 2 cups; set aside. Press remaining oat mixture onto bottom of 9 X 9 inch square baking pan. Bake 15 minutes.

For filling, combine plums, sugar, and flour. Stir in preserves. Spread onto crust within 1/ 2 inch of edge Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake 25 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. 16 bars

Wow Roselin, I gotta try those bars!

Here's one I've posted many times but it's one of our favorites so I'm posting it again!

Salted Peanut Bars

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 + 1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg yolks
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2/3 cup corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (10-oz.) pkg. Reeces peanut butter chips
1 (16-oz.) can salted, dry roasted peanuts

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and egg yolks until crumbly. Press firmly in bottom of ungreased 9X13X2-inch baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows. Return to oven and bake an additional 1 or 2 minutes until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool while preparing topping.

In a large saucepan, combine corn syrup, cup butter, vanilla and peanut butter chips. Over low heat melt just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanuts. Immediately spoon warm topping evenly over marshmallows; dipping your fingers in water to prevent stickiness, spread to cover. Refrigerate until firm; 1 hour and cut into bars dipping the knife into hot water occasionally.

These have peanut butter. They are quite the sweet, yummy treat, and super easy too. Ever since a colleague made these, I've wanted to make them, but just can't bear to buy all the ingredients. The only thing I have on hand is sugar. I think she got this from All recipes.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

DIRECTIONS:
Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and corn syrup, and bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter. Mix in the rice cereal until evenly coated. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
In a glass bowl in the microwave, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips, stirring occasionally until smooth and and well blended. Spread over the top of the bars. Chill until set, then cut into bars.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Yield 8 serving
Ingredients

* 1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 2 cups all-purpose flour for coating
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* salt and pepper to taste
* 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying

Directions

1. Take your cut up chicken pieces and skin them if you prefer. Put the flour in a large plastic bag (let the amount of chicken you are cooking dictate the amount of flour you use). Season the flour with paprika, salt and pepper to taste (paprika helps to brown the chicken).
2. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk then, a few at a time, put them in the bag with the flour, seal the bag and shake to coat well. Place the coated chicken on a cookie sheet or tray, and cover with a clean dish towel or waxed paper. LET SIT UNTIL THE FLOUR IS OF A PASTE-LIKE CONSISTENCY. THIS IS CRUCIAL!
3. Fill a large skillet (cast iron is best) about 1/3 to 1/2 full with vegetable oil. Heat until VERY hot. Put in as many chicken pieces as the skillet can hold. Brown the chicken in HOT oil on both sides. When browned, reduce heat and cover skillet; let cook for 30 minutes (the chicken will be cooked through but not crispy). Remove cover, raise heat again and continue to fry until crispy.
4. Drain the fried chicken on paper towels. Depending on how much chicken you have, you may have to fry in a few shifts. Keep the finished chicken in a slightly warm oven while preparing the rest.

I made these yesterday and hubby really liked them. (Mikey, he'll eat anything "almost"). I thought they were good too but that they can be improved. I'm not a baker, so if anyone tries them and has ideas, please let me know.

Cinnamon Sticky Biscuits
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp honey or corn syrup

Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil

Filling
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins and/chopped nuts

Combine butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and honey in a small saucepan and warm until melted and smooth. Pour over bottom of an 8x8 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and canola oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough. Don't overmix.

On a lightly floured board pat or roll the dough into a 9x14" rectangle. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins or nuts. Starting from a long side, roll tightly into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using a serrated knife. Place into the baking pan.

My friend has made this one and it is so good.
From Cake Mix Doctor

The Cake Mix Doctor, page 109

Serves: 16
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Assembly Time: 15 minutes

Solid vegetable shortening for greasing the pans
Flour for dusting the pans
1 package (18.25 ounces) plain yellow cake mix
1 package (3.4 ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix
2/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil, such as canola, corn, safflower, soybean, or sunflower
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots (5 medium carrots)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Fresh Orange Cream Cheese Frosting (see below)

1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease two 9-inch round cake pans with solid vegetable shortening. Dust with flour, then shake out the excess flour. Set the pans aside.

2. Place the cake mix, pudding mix, orange juice, oil, eggs, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes more, scraping the sides down again if needed. The batter should look thick and well blended. Gently fold in the carrots, raisins, and nuts with a rubber spatula. Divide the batter between the prepared pans, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pans in the oven side by side.

3. Bake the cakes until they are golden brown and spring back when lightly pressed with your finger, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove the pans from the oven and place them on wire racks to cool for 10 minutes. Run a dinner knife around the edges of each layer and invert each onto a rack, then invert each again onto another rack so that the cakes are right side up. Allow them to cool completely, 30 minutes more.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the Fresh Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. (recipe follows)

5. Place one cake layer, right side up, on a serving platter. Spread the top with frosting. Place the second layer, right side up, on top of the first layer and frost the top and sides of the cake with clean, smooth strokes.

Place this cake, uncovered, in the refrigerator until the frosting sets, 20 minutes. Cover the cake with waxed paper and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Or freeze it, wrapped in aluminum foil, for up to 6 months. Thaw the cake in the refrigerator before serving.

Fresh Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange zest (from 1 medium orange)

1. Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds. Stop the machine. Add the confectioners' sugar, a bit at a time, blending with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is well combined, 1 minute. Then add the orange juice and zest to the mixture. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat until the frosting lightens and is fluffy, 1 minute more.

2. Use at once to frost the Carrot Cake

I just found this recipe and it sounds pretty good. I would think you could take the icing recipe for the White Texas Sheet cake and not put almond in it and use lemon and it would be good instead of the cream cheese frosting.

Lemon Sheet Cake

24

Yield 1 - 10 x 15 x 1 inch sheet cake
Ingredients

* 1 cup butter
* 1 cup water
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 cups white sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* juice of 1 lemon
* zest of 1 lemon
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
*

* Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting but use lemon juice instead of water or milk

Directions

1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, lemon juice and zest, salt, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.
2. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 22 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and tests done. Cool for 20 minutes.

White Texas Sheet Cake

Yield 1 - 10 x 15 x 1 inch sheet cake
Ingredients

* 1 cup butter
* 1 cup water
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 cups white sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* 1 teaspoon almond extract
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/4 cup milk
* 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
* 1 cup chopped walnuts or chopped almonds or pecans

Directions

1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, 1 teaspoon almond extract, salt, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.
2. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 22 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and tests done. Cool for 20 minutes.
3. Combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Mix in sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Stir in pecans. Spread frosting over warm cake. A jelly roll pan is best for this cake. Let stand a day before eating if you can as the flavors are better. This is making me hungry for one.
