RE: Ivamae's Blueberry muffins!!! OMG/??too (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: nicole__ on 08.15.2010 at 11:01 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

So here's Ivamae's bluebery muffin recipe:

This is the recipe that I used. I think I found it on the net, but not sure. the batter is very very thick. It made 9 large ones. I loved the crumb topping.
I wondered about trying maraschino cherries but my daughter didn't think that would be good. If I had red currants or could find some, I would try that. Elderberries might be good, too.
Blueberry Muffins - makes 9 large ones.

1&1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk ( approximately - see below)
1 cup fresh blueberries ( I used half of the pint container.)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 & 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. ( I had it just a wee, wee bit less)

2.Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

Combine first 4 ingredients.
Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup, add the egg and fill the rest of the cup with milk.
Mix this with the flour mixture. I just stirred it in. I did not use the electric mixer as it is very stiff.
Fold in the blueberries.

It says to fill the muffin cups right to the top. I didn't fill them quite that much. Sprinkle with the crumb mixture.
3. To make the crumb topping: mix together the last 4 ingredients and mix with a fork ( I used my one hand to finish crumbling it.) Sprinkle over the muffins before baking.
4.Bake for 20 to 25 minutes ( I found 22 was about right) in the preheated oven or until done.

I modified it to make 12 muffins by adding a half cup more flour, 1/4 cup more sugar, a little more milk and another egg. That makes my BIG muffin cups give a really rounded muffin. Lookin' TEXAS size!!!!! :0)

RE: Christmas Cookies (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: sandy_in_ia on 11.30.2009 at 12:09 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

My boss is EXTREMELY hard to buy for...if he wants it, he goes and buys it! :/ So, for the last 6 years or so, I have made a bunch of cookies/breads/bars for their Christmas gift. They have 5 kids between them plus some spouses, so they have lots of people coming and going. Works for me! =)

Strawberry bread (recipe on today recipe post)
Frosted Sugar cookies
Peanut butter kiss cookies
Chocolate chip cookies
Toffee Bars
Cake mix easy, and so good!

Not sure what else so far this year..some new breads recipes (there are some great one on todays recipe post!), and some new cookie recipes. Usually have 10-12 different items, makes a nice plate for neighbors also. Generally don't do too much candy besides the fudge.

I'll be watching this thread for all those ideas!


1 package of cake mix (any flavor)
1 large egg
1/4 cup of oil (you can use the 1/4 c apple sauce instead)
1/4 cup of water
1 cup of chopped nuts, raisins, M&M's (anything you like in cookies)

Heat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water. Beat until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredient (s).
Drop by teaspoon about 1 inch apart onto greased cooke sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Makes about 4 dozens. Easy & GOOD!

(I like to make lemon cake with some lemon zest in them and lemon icing.)

RE: Apples, Apples, Apples (Follow-Up #14)

posted by: marilyn_sue on 10.13.2009 at 08:52 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

I learned how to make this recipe from my Mother in law. It is a simple form of apple dumplings.

Take your favorite pie crust and roll it out like for cinnamon rolls. Brush with butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Then cover with peeled and chopped apples, roll as for jelly roll. Cut and place cut side down in a baking pan. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Place in a 400 degree oven and bake while making the simple syrup to pour over the top. When syrup is hot, carefully pour over the baking apple dumplings. Bake until the dumplings are done and the syrup is very thick. Very good and easy to make. I like using Golden Del. apples.

Pudding Cake Bars

1 package pudding (the cooked kind)
2 cups milk
1 regular sized cake mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 cup chocolate or butterscotch chips

Cook the pudding with the milk. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in the dry cake mix and mix well. Pour in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Sprinkle with nuts and chips.

Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. You can come up with some really good combinations using different mixes and chips. Quick and easy to fix.

Recipe of the day March 15 - Cheddar Biscuits!

posted by: luckygardnr on 03.15.2009 at 03:41 am in Kitchen Table Forum

Cheddar Biscuits like Red Lobsters

2 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached or regular)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 cup butter, cold, cut into chunks
2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese (sharp flavoured is best)
1/2 - 2/3 cups milk
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes or 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and garlic salt. Whisk together to combine thoroughly. Add chunks of butter. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesn't need to be fine). Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup milk. Stir together. Keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and no longer dry and powdery. (Shouldn't be sticky, just moist enough to hold together).

Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.

Bake for 15-17 minutes. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.

When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Serve warm.

Makes one dozen biscuits.

keep them in your thoughts and prayers

posted by: tralynn on 09.09.2008 at 05:52 am in Kitchen Table Forum

Some friends of my sister (husband and wife) were badly burned in a house explosion a little over a week ago. The husband was burnt 55% over his body and the woman was burnt about 85% over her body. They were lighting their hot water tank in basement and the fire marshall believes it was caused from the propane. They have three children. Two of them were not home at the time, but the youngest was, but was not hurt. She was upstairs and was able to get out. These people need all the prayers they can get. Of course they are both still in critical condition. I just can't stop thinking about them. My heart goes out to their families. So could everyone just stop for a moment and say a little prayer for them. Thanks
