Pineapple Bread Pudding KLO Pineapple Bread Pudding

1 loaf French bread
3 beaten eggs
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup crushed pineapple,do not drain
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 cup raisins, optional, I didn't use
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional, I used

Break bread into small pieces and place in a large glass bowl. Pour milk over the bread and let it soak 15-20 minutes. After soak time mash the bread to remove any lumps.

Add the rest of ingredients and mix well.

Pour into a buttered 8-9 inch square pan and bake for 45 minutes at 350° until set in the middle and lightly browned on top.

Delicious hot or cold and can be served with a topping of sweetened whipped cream, bourbon sauce or Grand Marnier.

I had some golden rolls, bought at Sam's, left from Easter dinner and I used them in place of the French bread and it is very good. Haven't tried any of the toppings yet, made it after breakfast and plan on warming for supper. Will make the whipped cream then. 20051114

Cut Glass Cream Heathertee2002 Cut Glass Cream

I remembered this wonderful Jello dessert from the 70's. If you can't find ladyfingers, sponge cake sliced thin will do fine. You also can make this in individual molds or in a single large mold, without the cakes.  Extremely pretty!

1 small package each, orange, strawberry, lime and lemon Jello
1 tub Dream Whip (large)
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 TB sugar
2 packages ladyfingers (about 24 )

In separate little bowls, dissolve the red, orange and green Jello in 1/2 cup boiling water each. Then add 1/2 cup cold water and pour in small pans to set (should be rather shallow) in fridge.

Heat the pineapple juice to boiling, remove from heat and add the lemon Jello. Stir till dissolved, add the sugar and let cool till the consistency of syrup.
Lightly butter (or use cooking spray) a mold or a bowl and line with ladyfingers or sponge cake.
With a sharp knife, cut the colored gelatin into small cubes and diamonds. Whisk the lemon Jello mixture into the Dream Whip and fold in the cut gelatin. Pour into the mold and chill at least 2 hours, better overnight.

This makes a wonderful birthday "cake" that small children will actually eat, and no need to serve ice cream!

Baileys' & Toasted Marshmallows S.D. Bailey's and marshallows

My wife is especially fond of toasting marshmallows whenever we camp. This is usually a long, drawn out process that can take about an hour to get the coal fire exactly right. On our last trip, we tried something different for fun, and dipped a marshmallow into Bailey's prior to toasting it. While it sounds kind of odd, it actually tasted quite good. Other people who were camping with us also thought it was pretty tasty. While I realize this isn't truly culinary, I thought I'd post it in case anyone's interested.

p.s. Don't try this with tequila…

Make-Your-Own Dessert Packet  JT Easy desserts for kids to make

If you're camping and cooking over an outside fire, these "make-your-own packet" desserts work well for kids OR adults! IF the group is large, or if you have limited "fire space", this is best done in two or three shifts. And, small children will need some help to assemble their packet and open it; the packets are HOT!

Prepare 10" (more or less) squares of heavy-duty foil for each packet. Put the foil squares in a stack at one end of the picnic table, then Prepare and lay out these "basics" on paper plates (use plastic spoons in a line along the table:

(Peeled) apples and fresh peaches cut into small pieces.
Brown Sugar mixed with cinnamon or "apple pie spice".
Raisins, dried cherries or cranberries.
Granola -- I use the bulk stuff with oats, nuts, etc. Make sure it's crumbled up and not "lumpy".

Each person takes a foil square and put about 1/2 cup apples or peaches (or a combo), a sprinkling of raisins, etc., about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and sprinkling of cinnamon, a little butter, and a couple of tablespoons of granola mix; this last is optional.

"Drugstore fold" the packet, poke a couple of small steam holes on the top side, mark the top side with the person's initial or some identifying mark -- use a "Sharpie" -- and place on the grill over hot coals. If the fire's right, they take about 15-20 minutes or so.
I've also made these with a dollop of apricot jam, and, of course, a little vanilla ice cream -- packed in dry ice in a cooler and taken out about a half-hour before serving -- cools them off real fast!

Bisquick Peach Cobbler FireDoc124 Bisquick cobbler

Yield: 4 servings

      1/2 c butter
       1 c milk
       1 c bisquick
       1 c sugar
       1 cn peaches

Preheated oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt butter in baking pan. Mix milk, Bisquick and sugar and
pour into pan. Add the peaches and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Bisquick Cobbler WildTexan Bisquick cobbler

Can of peach filling
1 Egg
4-6 small baking or custard dishes or Dutch oven

Coat baking dishes with thin coat of oil.
Divide peach filling into dishes, one layer of peaches across bottom. Mix in bowl until smooth: 1 cup of Bisquick, 1/3 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 egg, 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla, large dash of cinnamon.
Pour batter equally over top of peaches in baking dishes. Bake at 350 degrees about 12 to 15 minutes until crust is golden brown and peaches are bubbly. Be careful not to overcook if batter layer is too thin.
For Dutch oven, double the recipe or the cobbler will be too thin and probably burn. Preheat both Dutch oven and lid on fire while preparing Bisquick mix. Prepare a small bed of coals (6 to 8, a few more in winter) on a piece of foil, shiny side up. When Dutch oven is hot, move to bed of coals. Wipe bottom of Dutch oven to remove oil residue. Pour peach filling into hot Dutch oven - should sizzle. Cover and let fruit heat while you mix batter. Pour batter directly on top of heated filling. Cover and put twice as many coals on lid as underneath. Bake as above.

Angel food cake slices (or pound cake)
Pina Colada Yogurt
Coconut (fresh, frozen or bagged)

All you do is put a slice of cake on the plate, a big dab of the yogurt and sprinkle with the coconut. Believe it or not, it's quite good.   You can also adapt this with other flavors of yogurt - I've used lemon yogurt and the pineapple before. All were good and the yogurt is healthier than pudding.    You can really get creative and use some of the deli flavored pound cakes like strawberry or banana and use compatible yogurt.

Coffee Gelatin Heathertee2002 Heirloom Recipes-- What is your Favorite-

New Englanders of the old school never wasted anything. This is a great way to use that last cup or so of coffee that nobody wanted. his is a VERY old recipe.

1 1/2 cups cold coffee
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup whole milk or half-and-half
1 package plain gelatin
2 eggs, separated
1 tsp. vanilla

Soften the gelatin for 10 minutes in the milk. Dissolve the sugar in the coffee and whisk in the beaten egg yolks.
In a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and whisk in the gelatin-milk mixture. Return to medium-low heat and whisk for two minutes more.
Cool the mixture to room temperature. Beat the egg white with vanilla til it holds stiff glossy peaks. Fold gently and thoroughly into the coffee mixture. Pour into little molds or dessert dishes and chill.
There will be a thin clear dark-coffee layer on the bottom, then a creamy cafe-au-lait layer, then a fluffy top. Very refreshing on a hot day. Good with a dusting of cocoa powder on top

Strawberries Romanoff Jim4me Strawberries Romanoff -- For a real Treat

I acquired this recipe a few years ago and it's enough to make me drool just reading it and passing it on. Comments in the recipe are courtesy of the person I received the recipe from.

(Zemlyanika Po Romanovski/Fraises Romanoff)

Created by Antoine Careme for Czar Alexander I, this dish is probably more French than Russian, but it appears in the cookbooks of both countries. If possible, choose medium-size strawberries for this dish instead of the huge ones. If they are very big, you might consider cutting them into pieces.

[to serve 4]

1 quart strawberries, washed and hulled
juice of 2 oranges (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup Cointreau or other orange-based liqueur
1 1/2 cups heavy cream, chilled
1/4 cup sugar

Put the strawberries in a bowl and add the orange juice and the Cointreau. Let them macerate for about an hour. Beat the cream in a cold bowl, gradually folding in the sugar and a few drops of vanilla.

Spoon the whipped cream over the strawberries and serve at once.

Note: You may have first experienced this dish as I did -- with the berries stirred into a mixture of whipped cream and soft vanilla ice cream. So far as I can determine, this is strictly an American creation. But I don't think the Russians, with their passion for ice cream, would wholly disapprove. Prepare the same amount of strawberries and macerate them in orange juice and Cointreau as directed above. Let 1 pint vanilla ice cream soften just enough to be stir able. Whip 1 cup of chilled heavy cream in an ice-cold bowl until stiff, and fold it into the ice cream. Gently blend in the macerated strawberries and serve at once. 20041004

Easy Campfire Doughnuts KyleKoehler Easy doughnuts over the campfire....

We love to make these and give them out to the folks at the campsites around us!!!!

Take tubes of Pillsbury biscuits ($.30-$.99) and heat up a small pot or pan of cooking oil over the campfire. If you do this right you can pour the cooled oil back into the bottle and reuse many times.

Drop the Pillsburry biscuits into the hot oil one at a time, depending on the heat you flip in 1 minute or so onto other side. In another minute scoop out with straining ladle into tupperware container of cinnamon-sugar.

In just a few minutes you can make dozens of hot delicious doughnuts.

We learned this trick from a local China Buffet that has doughnuts - we saw the owner pushing a grocery cart with cases of the Pillsbury tubes up to the register.

All that is needed.

-Tube of Pillsbury Biscuit dough
-Small pot or deep frying pan.
-Bottle of cooking oil (remember to let cool and reuse)
-Scooping ladle with straining holes
-Tupperware seal able bowl of cinnamon-sugar

MMMMmmmmm... you will be the talk over all the sites nearby. 20041008

Biscuit Donuts BusyBeeCyndi Simple Donuts = EASY< /FONT >

Buy the cheap small biscuits and put small holes in them using biscuit cutter or whatever you can find. Heat up oil over stove and drop biscuits in till lightly brown and turn. Cook up the holes too. Cover donuts in cinnamon/sugar mixture or powdered sugar.

Makes for a late night snack or morning treat.

Biscuit Squares Mr_Pace Simple Donuts = EASY< /FONT >

My kids used to take the canned biscuits and roll them out about 1/4" thick or less then cut them into 1" squares. They would bake real quick on a cookie sheet until slightly brown. They took each cookie sheet full and put in a brown paper bag with sugar and cinnamon and shook it. The three of them would eat the first bag full before the next cookie sheet was cooked. They loved them with a cold milk chaser.

Elephant Ears OSAGEGIRL Elephant ear recipe

This is the way we make Elephant Ears:

Get a package of the large soft flour tortillas.
Pan fry in about 1 inch of Crisco oil, 1 at a time, until they start to brown, they will plump a little. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture, enjoy.

Elephant Ears Heathertee2002 Elephant ear recipe

You can make elephant ears out of the frozen bread dough you get at the supermarket but it is better and a lot cheaper to make your own. Any bread recipe will do.
Don't be afraid of yeast dough's. Just make sure to warm your bowl, use very warm but not hot liquid to dissolve the yeast, and raise the dough covered in a warm place, like the top of the fridge.
Make the dough a lot thinner than you think you should, on the final roll-out, as it will puff up more than you expect.

Itty-Bitty S'mores sjdarji Rescued Recipes(a home for the orphans)

Cut your chocolate bar into little bitty pieces, about the size of a pea. Use a small sharp knife to incise your marshmallow, shove the little pieces of chocolate inside the mallow, then roast it (no, it generally doesn't fall apart). This way, the chocolate always gets melted into the mallow. I swear, these s'mores taste great.

Another thing I love about camping--storing the milk at the bottom of the ice chest so that it is super cold when you have a glass of it with your s'mores!

Chocolate Fondue Heathertee2002 Fondue--

I've made a chocolate fondue that was a smash hit as a dessert following a backyard bash I gave years back. You dip all sorts of good things in melted chocolate: Big strawberries with the stems on, chunks of fresh pineapple, marshmallows, chunks of Snickers bars, pretzels, etc. Whatever you like. I had melted milk and dark chocolate, and side dishes of sour cream, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, and Jimmies. Very good-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt) would be good too.
Too high heat or too much juice on the fruit will seize the chocolate, so be sure the fruit is pretty dry and your heat as low as it'll go, or just melt the chocolate and keep it warm over hot water.


Golden Delicious apples are used for this starter, but Rome Beauties work well, too.
8 large Golden Delicious apples
1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 cup water
Chilled whipping cream (optional)

Peel skin off top quarter of each apple. Using melon baler, scoop out core, leaving bottom intact. Stand apples in 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Mix sugar and spices in bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons mixture. Fill apple cavities with remaining sugar mixture. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup into each cavity. Scatter 3 tablespoons butter pieces over apples. (Can be made 4 hours ahead. Cover; chill.)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour 1/2 cup water into pan with apples. Bake apples 35 minutes. Add reserved 2 tablespoons sugar mixture, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon butter, and 1/2 cup water to pan. Bake until apples are tender when pierced with skewer, about 25 minutes longer. Transfer apples to 8 bowls. Place baking pan atop 2 burners; boil over medium-high heat until syrupy, about 2 minutes. Spoon sauce over apples. Serve with whipping cream, if desired.

Makes 8 servings.

Banana Boats Baseball Mom 15 Any quick meal suggestions when camping with kids-

Peel open, but don't remove the skin of a ripe banana. Remove a wedge down the length of the banana, put in chocolate chips and again caramel topping. Pull skin back, wrap in foil and cook till warmed through.
Stuffed Apples Baseball Mom 15 Any quick meal suggestions when camping with kids-

For dessert, core out apples, (bigger holes = more filling) add in raisins and caramel topping (like used on ice cream). I think you put a pat of butter on this too. Wrap in foil and cook till tender.

Core 1 apple (per person) while leaving it whole. Place 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp butter, and 5 or 6 red-hots candy in the hole of the apple. Wrap in foil. Place wrapped apple into hot coals and cook until apple is done. Baking time varies with the variety of the apple but is usually 10-15 minutes. Apple may be tested for doneness by poking it with a fork. You will enjoy this one.

Chocolate Truffle PRT Chocolate Truffle

1 chocolate cake mix
3 boxes instant chocolate pudding mix - plus the necessary milk
2 12 oz. containers of Cool Whip
1 package Bits O' Brickle (or find bar peanut brittle and beat it into submission!)
Bake cake according to package directions in 13" x 9" pan
Let cake cool. When almost cool, poke holes in the surface with a fork and drizzle Kahlua over the cake.
Make the pudding.

Score the cake into thirds. Cut each part into one inch squares.
In a nice glass bowl, layer cake, pudding, Cool Whip and brickle bits. You should end up with three layers.

Chill, serve, and watch people gain weight!

If you are serving children, skip the Kahlua and substitute M&Ms for the brickle.
Or you can put chocolate shavings instead of either candy.
Or you can use Bailey's instead of Kahlua.
Or rum. Be inventive.

Apple Empanadas Mr_Pace Apples!

For something delicious and a little different make some empanadas. Very similar to apple turnovers. The easiest way for "Gringos" to make them is to use pie dough. Roll out to less than 1/8" thick into 6" circles. Fill with chunky cinnamon applesauce mixed with lots of raisins and chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, pinions). Fold in half and crimp the edges and deep fry until brown.

They freeze well and reheat in the micro. Great with coffee in the mornings and not as fattening as donuts or apple fritters.

(Secret Ingredient) *add a little hazelnut extract* Works at my house!

Banana's Torched Bad Influence Craving Bananas Foster

Just to add to these fantastic recipes - here's my favorite with a very simple ingredient list:

Granulated Sugar (about two tablespoons per naner)
Ice Cream (whatever fits, last night we used peanut butter, I've used mocha almond fudge, vanilla, whatever!)

Split the bananas down the middle, then cut crosswise for four flat pieces. Place cut side up on a grill or cooling rack over a cookie sheet and coat top with sugar (about 1/4" thick).

Take out your trusty kitchen torch (either use a little butane torch carefully, or better yet use one of those plumbing torches from the hardware store, the kind that fits on those portable propane cans). Just use the middle of the flame and go back and forth until the sugar melts and starts to brown.

Lay out on a plate and add ice cream! It's got a lot of the flavor of the fosters (the caramelizing almost adds the flavor of the alcohol) with many fewer ingredients, plus its got nice crispy shell that is fun to break up.

Banana's Foster ala Brennan's New Oleans ccxnola Craving Bananas Foster

? ¼ cup (½ stick) butter
? 1 cup brown sugar
? ½ teaspoon cinnamon
? ¼ cup banana liqueur
? 4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
? ¼ cup dark rum
? 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a flambé pan or skillet. Place the pan over low heat either on an alcohol burner or on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan. When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum. When the flames subside, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.

BANANAS FOSTER, FLAMBÉ robinandbob Craving Bananas Foster

A quintessential New Orleans dessert, and a favorite among most locals.

4 tbsp. butter (1/2 stick)
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 bananas
2 oz. banana liqueur
4 oz. dark rum
Ground cinnamon
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

This dish cannot be prepared in the kitchen. It must be performed, in front of your guests. Use a chafing dish, and some kind of portable heat like Sterno. Don't be sloppy, and keep a fire extinguisher handy. There's no need to burn the house down just for dessert, but this really must be done right. I learned to cook this dish from Chef Joe Cahn at the New Orleans School of Cooking, and he spun dire tales of what befell those who dared sequester themselves in the kitchen when making Bananas Foster. Seriously, bad gris-gris will befall you if you deprive your guests of the spectacle. Plus, they'll talk for years about how cool you are to have made this for their dessert.
First, you should make some preparations. Peel a thin strip of peel from the bananas, and use your knife to slice the banana crossways into coins. Then replace the banana peel so that it looks untouched (as best as you can, anyway). This way, you can pretend to "peel" your bananas, and dump them into the put already cut, as if by magic. Cheesy, you ask? Well, it still looks cool, particularly if you're really nonchalant when you do this in front of your guests. If you insist, you can slice the bananas the classical way, quartering them by slicing thm lengthwise and then in half. I still think the other way is cooler.

Put your ground cinnamon into some kind of non-standard container, or even a little muslin bag, the better to "convince" your guests that it is, in fact, not cinnamon but voodoo dust, scraped from the tomb of Marie Laveau at midnight on All Soul's Day ... some kind of delightfully corny******like that. Also, I recommend taking a cinnamon stick and grinding it fresh in a spice or coffee grinder instead of using pre-ground cinnamon. Sieve the result through a tea ball strainer to remove the larger pieces which won't grind finely. This will maximize the fresh, aromatic cinnamon flavor. If you use your coffee grinder, it'll also make your coffee taste great.

Now, to business ...

Melt the butter and add the brown sugar to form a creamy paste. Let this mixture caramelize over the heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the banana liqueur and rum. Heat until the liquor is warmed, about three minutes. Add the bananas, cook for about 1 - 2 minutes, then ignite with a flourish. Here's the best way to do this:

Using a long, bent-handled ladle, scoop up some of the warm liquor. Hold it a foot or two above the chafing dish and ignite the liquor in the ladle. VERY CAREFULLY, pour the liquor into the dish. A column of flame will descend from the ladle into the dish, which will ignite with a marvelous *poof*! Keep a water pale nearby, subtly wielding a fire extinguisher. Try not to become a human torch in the process.

Agitate to keep the flame burning
