Searchlight Rice CakesSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Tue, 05/18/2021 - 23:52
I found this recipe years ago in a cookbook my husband bought from a traveling salesman, when he worked at a lumber yard. Back in the day, men came through selling just about everything from encyclopedias to cookbooks. A huge dictionary came with it. That is long gone, but I still have the cookbook. I think it was published in 1946. This is an easy way to make rice cakes.

Sauces for Steak and Roast BeefSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Wed, 02/17/2021 - 00:12
Horseradish has always been a favorite of mine. It goes so well with roast beef, but so do mushrooms. Here are two sauces featuring each. Steak always has more flavor, it seems to me, when it is topped with a mushroom sauce. I hope you know how well horseradish goes with a piece of leftover roast roast.
Cheesy Beef DipSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Thu, 02/11/2021 - 01:37
We all know and love the cheese dip made with Velveeta cheese. There are only three ingredients in that dip. This recipe is longer, but you are more apt to have all the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. Be sure to add the cinnamon. That spice goes especially well with chili powder, Three cups is a lot of dip, but it will go fast.

Pork Chops with Cream Style CornSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Thu, 01/28/2021 - 00:41
I like pork chops. I like cream style corn. Put my two "likes" together and you have this recipe. It's something different. I suppose you wouldn't think of combining those two, but this is a great dish. If you have thinner pork chops, adjust the first baking time accordingly. You know, we can get in a rut planning our weekly menu. Try something different this week. Try this recipe.
Cinnamon Pear ButterSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Thu, 01/28/2021 - 00:36
Apple butter is delicious. So is pear butter. You will agree after you taste this recipe. Pick up 3 pounds of pears at Food City and stir up a batch. Don't try to hurry it along by cooking it at a higher temperature. Grab a favorite read and sit next to the stove for the 1 3/4 hours necessary for its slow cooking. Read a bit and stir, read a bit and stir. Don't let it stick and burn. Who says you can only make preserves in the Fall. Whenever you see the necessary fruit in the produce section just pick up some and sir up a batch.

Spicy Ricey Oatmeal CookiesSubmitted by Shirley McMurtrie on Thu, 12/31/2020 - 00:55
I like cookies with walnuts or pecans. Peanuts, not so much. But most everybody likes Rice Krispies. I thought, “Why not substitute Rice Krispies for nuts in a recipe.” When making my Christmas cookies one year, I came up with this recipe. There is another surprise tucked in that cookie, too. Cayenne pepper. It gives a little zing to the cinnamon spice. You will wonder why the cinnamon tastes so good: cayenne pepper. When you try this recipe, I hope it will become a favorite. Don't tell anyone about the cayenne. Let's keep it our secret.
