The original "Let's Share Recipes" was such a huge success with lots of great recipes that I thought it was time to start a new one with my sisters in pink.

It is Fall now, the weather is turning cooler, and, it is time to turn those ovens on!

So, let's share recipes!

that true. It is easy and always a winner recipe. My hubby needs at least one cookie with every meal. I read that it is very important phycological support for some people.

This is from the ACS cookbook, easy and sooo good! Really good with cream cheese spread or frosting.

Applesauce Cake/Bread

1 cup raisins, Optional
½ cup water
1 cup chunky applesauce
1/3 cup margarine
½ cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup chopped walnuts, Optional

Preheat oven to 350o F. Grease a loaf pan with margarine. In a small saucepan, combine raisins and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in applesauce. Cool to luke warm. Cream margarine and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves. Mix into batter. Add applesauce mixture and nuts. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

For tube pan cake, double recipe.

For mini-muffins without raisins and walnuts there is no need to heat, just add water and applesauce to batter. Bake about 15 minutes.

For the applesauce use MacIntosh apples, peeled and cubed. Boil in ¼ cup water until soft. Mash with potato masher. 3lb, bag of apples makes enough for 2 loafs with a bit left over.

I am famous for cooking with my friends and family. Mother a great cook but I do more interesting things.

Clean jalapeno ridding them of seeds and membrane so not hot. If want more heat leave membrane in and a few seeds.

Stuffing is made of cream cheese and maybe a little sour cream and then garlic a clove or so with seasonings of your taste. I make them all different ways with many kinds of grated cheese in the mix including a tiny bit of fetta or goats cheese.

Then you bake them for 40 minutes and slightly brown on top and anyone who has every had mine dreams about them as much as I do. People use to think I was nuts by having to have these things because I love them so much but they too are in the same boat as me.

1 cup packed (but not tightly) basil
1/3 cup pine nuts (walnuts can be substituted)
1/3 cup parmesan
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic (1 if you're not a garlic lover)
salt & pepper to taste

Throw it in a food processor; garlic, nuts, basil, then oil, parm & s&p.

Fabulous over a brick of cream cheese with your favorite crackers. And, wine, of course! Or, add it to cream and butter and pour over pasta.

You can order the cookbooks online from ASC. www.cancer.org. From the home page scroll down and on left side you'll see ASC Bookstore. It's in there. They have several to choose from. The Applesauce Cake came from a friend of mine that had the cookbook from years ago.

Sue your pesto sounds wonderful--can't wait to try it. I love pesto over pasta.

3 cups stale cornbread cut in 1/2-inch diced
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
1 large tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon canned chipotle chile in adobe sauce, coarsely chopped (optional)
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Spread the cornbread in an even layer on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until crispy.
3. In a large bowl, place the cucumber, tomato, red and yellow bell peppers, red onion, green onion, and garlic. Toss to mix well. Add the cornbread cubes and lightly toss to mix.
4. In a small bowl, combine the wine vinegar, olive oil, chipotle chile, honey, cilantro, and the salt and pepper to taste to make the vinaigrette.
5. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad ingredients and toss to mix well. Let stand 15 to 30 minutes so the bread can absorb the dressing, then serve.

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease (2)12 cup muffin pans.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl & mix in the sugar, pumpkin & oil.

In medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, & salt. Blend into the egg & pumpkin mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Transfer to muffin pans.

Thanks everyone for your responses, and the yummy recipes you have posted. I will get started on trying them immediately. (As soon as i can get up off of this computer and do something constructive. LOL) Anyway, here is my most favorite recipe for this summer. Was served by my Aunt while we were driving across Texas to get to our vacation spot in NM. It was so good, I made a pig of myself, and my husband asked me, after my third helping, and headed to clean out the bowl for my fourth helping, "Don't you think you have had enough?" Here it is:

SPINACH/STRAWBERRY SALAD

1 bag fresh baby spinach
1 small box fresh strawberries, sliced
1/3 red onion, sliced thin and "ringed"
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1/3 cup sliced almonds (toasted) = can substitute pine nuts if you can find them

Mix in salad bowl and place in refrigerator until you are ready to serve

LEMON ZEST DRESSING

1 large lemon - zest the whole lemon, split down middle and squeeze all juices.
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 teaspoon poppy seeds

Mix thoroughly until sugar completely dissolves. Refrigerate until serving time.

You can make this your main meal by adding either broiled shrimp or broiled chicken breast. However, my favorite way is just salad.

Enjoy

You can buy these already made up at most markets, but, I like to make my own.

2 lb ham
2 cups bread crumbs
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons catsup
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup milk

Put in pan. Cover with 2 Tablespoons brown sugar and catsup. Bake at 275 degrees - 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

It is good. I usually fix scalloped potatoes and asparagus with cheese sauce as side dishes.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls (Copy Cat Cinnabon Rolls that you can’t stop eating…ask me how I know)
Dough Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tbls. ground cinnamon
(2) .25 oz. pks. active dry yeast (I use 2 TB instant yeast)
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 cup 110 degree water (approximately)
1 cup warm milk
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup melted butter OR margarine
2 tsp. salt
2 eggs – slightly beaten
Up to 8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup melted butter OR margarine
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans – optional
1/2 cup melted butter OR margarine
1/3 cup granulated sugar

• Mix together 1 1/2 cups sugar and the cinnamon; set aside (this will be used later to spread on dough)
• In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in warm water; set aside (if using instant yeast, you can skip this step)
• In a large bowl, mix together milk, 2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup melted butter, salt, and eggs; add yeast mixture and 4 cups of flour to mixture; beat until smooth; stir in enough flour to form a slightly stiff dough.
• Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and knead for 8 minutes. I always know when my dough is finished kneading (either by hand or machine) when it can stretch quite well. It must be elastic enough.

• Place dough into a large greased bowl, cover, and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 – 1 1/2 hours.
• Punch down dough and let rest for 5 minutes.
• Roll dough out onto a floured surface into a 15″ X 20″ rectangle.
• Brush 1/2 cup melted butter over dough; sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over dough; sprinkle nuts evenly over dough, if desired.
• Tightly roll up dough and pinch edges together to seal; cut the roll into 12 – 15 slices using dental floss or thread.
• Coat the bottom of a 13″ X 9″ X 2″ baking pan with 1/2 cup melted butter; sprinkle 1/3 cup sugar evenly in the bottom of the pan. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the prepared pan; cover pan and allow to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes or just eye ball them.
• Bake rolls in a 350 degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cinnabon like Frosting
• 8 oz. cream cheese
• 8 ounces margarine
• 1 tsp. vanilla ( I love using almond extract for variety)
• 1/2 tsp lemon
• 16 oz. powdered sugar
Beat together, margarine, sugar, and vanilla. Spread frosting on warm rolls and eat until you are stuffed.

Enjoy!
Peace and Love,
Edie

Potato Salad

5 lbs red potatoes - cut in whatever size you like them.

Red and green bell peppers, red onion, and dill pickles (not dill relish) cut in small pieces (1/4"). Probably about a cup of each but amount to your taste.

1 cup (approx) each of mayonaise and sour cream (again to your taste and sometimes it'll need more than other times), 'glop' of Dijon mustard, a dab of dill pickle juice, Lawrey's garlic salt.

While cutting everything, brown 1 lb. 1/4" thick sliced sausage (I usually use Kielbasa but again it's to your taste). Drain them and pat with paper towel to remove any excess 'fat' off them.

Then just mix together and enjoy.

French Saurkraut

A jar, bag, or lg. can of saurkraut
Drain and put in a pot with water - boil. After it comes to a boil drain it and repeat 4 - 6 times. The point of this is to remove the saur.

While boiling - Cut up several onions and slice a fair bit of fresh garlic. Brown these in butter. Then brown pork chops, a pork roast with garlic cut into it or sausage (Kielbasa/etc.) browned.

When de-sauring is done add the kraut to the onion/garlic saute. Place the meat in the skillet (I usually use electric skillet but can put in a cast iron skillet and cook on stove top or oven or casserole pan in oven). Add kraut mixture and cook slow til meat is done. Salt/pepper to taste.

(This is a French dish - not one someone just wants to call French. I learned how to make it from our French maid when we lived in France.)

Sorry I'm not good at giving exact amounts for almost eveyhing I cook - that's not how I was taught to cook. If anyone is interested in either and needs a bit more explaination - I'll be happy to try.

OK, this one is top secret, so don't tell anyone ;-) Everyone at work loves when I bring it. I serve it with extra butter or margerine, so that we can all really be "Buttertons."

My Grandmother's Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 large mashed bananas
1/3 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
Brown sugar

Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and bananas. Stir in sour cream. Sift together salt, flour and soda. Stir into batter; pour in greased and floured loaf pan. Sprinkle top with brown sugar. Bake at 325 for 1 hour.

You can throw in some chopped walnuts, if you like. My hubbie hates nuts so I usually leave them out.
