I haven't heard of beer bread or cracker pie before. Now that I googled it, the bread sounds as an easy recipe to try. The pie recipes seem to ask for egg whites without using the yolks and I always skip the recipes that only use part of the eggs, can't be bothered to think of ways to use the other part

Fresh baked bread is ALWAYS a great thing! I am also a great fan of my mom's quick-breads, i.e. banana bread, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, rhubarb bread, etc
Carrot and banana breads are my go-to breads, I love to add fruit or nuts to them, great stuff.

Another recipe I use really really often is cheesecake, I like that it's mostly protein and not that much carbs.

Really your great grandma found that recipe, WOW. It’s awesome that after all this your still making it! Also I’m so sorry for your loss.
P.s I’m going find some recipes for that and make it.
Hey that's alright, I have an endless amount of GREAT memories with her! She passed away when I was around 10 years old and right up to the end she loved me very much! When you look for beer bread recipes use the one from food.com I have had the best results with that one. Also 12 ounces of beer for some reason isn't quite enough so I would recommend getting at least a 16 ounce can!

After looking up "Cracker pie" it seems like Grandma's recipe is a little different! I use 2 cups, water, a cup of sugar, a "Spoonful" of cream of tartar (I use about a table spoon and a half), and a sleeve of ritz. No nuts, egg whites, or anything like that. You heat up the water, add the sugar and cream of tartar, and add the crackers just till they are soft. Then you pour all that into a pie crust, sprinkle some cinnamon on top, and bake it till it sets up. I don't have the exact recipe that she wrote here at my place, but by now I just have it memorized.

English muffin appetizers by my grandmother - known online as melted olive cheese appetizers or olive cheese melts. They are easy to make and always disappear *quick-like* during the holidays. And +1 to banana bread!

At new years I fed our 2 guests (covid and all) cranberoons. These are a food mutation of macaroons using dried cranberries instead of coconut. I did have to add some coconut to soak up the extra egg. Oh yeah the white spots are white chocolate chips.

Those guests are now cranberoon junkies.

Indeed! I add about a quarter cup of dried cranberries to my stuffing when I make it.

Did you make it, or buy? If you made it, what did you use for a crust? I am gluten free too!

I made it. I just made some gluten free cookies, then crumpled them up and added butter and packed it into the pie pan like a graham cracker crust.

My vacuum pump died so I can't make a proper "fire it through a brick wall" cheese cake any more.
In terms of "fluffy" cheese cake I did make my wife a 9" cake for her birthday. One layer of brownie in the spring form, one layer of chocolate cheese cake, one layer of fudge. Then chocolate coat the whole thing. All in all, it weighed ~10 Lbs.
You have to hate yourself to eat it. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I hate me.

If they were kept properly chilled I would say yes, but not much more.

They were put in the fridge once they were thawed. Been in there since. I really don't think I want food poisoning from bad seafood. :confused: I would have eaten them already but we were gone last night.

Did this thread morph from the one about butter going bad? Anyway, I'll put this info here for those who might like it.

Sweese is a company that makes kitchenware. And they make a butter crock that will hold a whole pound. I got it when I was feeding hordes of people (aka The Girls' College Years) and it's a dandy.

Reminds me of a story from James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small. There was a farting boxer and it was bad stinky. No one knew what to do with him, other than that, he was a perfect fellow. Well, the gardener who had charge of his playtime loved him. Everyone just thought the fella loved him despite his affliction. Turns out, the old gardener never could smell, though he had lovely flowers for the local show every year. Cedric the Farting Boxer lived a long and happy life with Con the gardener.

I love baking, mostly cake decorating, but i got too busy after I got a dog and mostly forgot about it lol. but way up high in a cabinet i have a ton of specialty cake decorating tools I never use tht i’ve been wanting to see if i remember anything (it’s only been a few years but i have a terrible memory). I took all 3 or 4 available wilton classes at my local michaels, as well as taking cookie decorating classes from my moms college friend. This is the most recent cake I made (Dec. 2019):

And my most recent cookie I decorated. Not my best work LOL(I think Jan 2020. Part of a family cookie decorating contest!)

Baked Eggs. This was something my grandma made a lot when my mom was a kid and when i was a kid as well.

Place 1 tbsp. of cream or half and half in bottom of each hole in muffin pan. Crack one egg into each hole. Sprinkle the tops with salt and pepper and crushed cornflakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Watch closely at 10 minute mark.

Nice work. My 2nd girl is a professional. Or she was lol. Said she got tired of it so went into logistics until she gets her Masters in Archaeology and can get a job there.

Hi!! I absolutely love to bake and decorate, I’m not extremely good but everything is most certainly made with love (and real butter, which are basically the same thing).
I also enjoy watching Sam the Cooking Guy on YouTube.
Most everything in my home is made from scratch, my daughter and I especially love any excuse to make yeast risen dough of any kind, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, breads etc.

Here are two cakes I’ve done this year.

I've been dabbling with soups lately.

Made a really good Minestrone soup a month ago (letting the soup simmer with a real chunk of parmesan rind makes a difference). A recipe my sister gave me, **** thing is 3 pages long. Tasty with crusty buttered bread.

A few times last year I made some keto diet soup (could care less about the keto and diet part lol) - but the soup was delicious. Beef/cabbage/leek/celery/carrot/a few other things I don't recall. Super tasty.
But you know - if I eat it, you need to clear the room....

Soups are rather labor intensive, but considering the quantity you get of leftovers, well worth it
------------------
My mother made a turkey soup recently (boiled the xmas turkey carcass for the broth). That's something I could do, pretty easy ingredients (turkey/carrots/celery, sage/thyme I think). Rather tasty and makes me want to buy a turkey once in awhile just to make soup lol.

Well if you're making high-end soups with 3 page recipes, sure. But normal soups are really easy... Might take time if you're making the broth from scratch, but most of that time is spent chilling and waiting.
