But when ever we went to a picnic at Nana’s, there were always available since my cousins were under men and into spicy foods. These are a good picnic, bar food, and snack […]Read more

When I was a kid Mom would make rice pudding as a special treat. This recipe is similar to how she made it. Enjoy it as much as we did growing up.
Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice
I have several different recipes here for rice pudding. If I order Chinese take=out, I always end up with left over rice and one idea is to make Rice Pudding using Cooked Rice out if it, Of course left over rice is great for making fried rice too. But when I get the urge for Rice Pudding, I always seem to have no cooked rice around. So here is a simple recipe to make it on the Stove-top. (There is not much difference in making Rice Pudding using cooked or uncooked rice. Sure you get a jump when you use cooked rice, but rice only take 20 minutes to cook, so it is not that much of a jump. )
This Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice is cooked on the stove top. I don’t know about you, but I hate the extra dish I have to wash when I bake it in the oven. Give me a stove-top recipe and I am good to go. Sure it might be a little more work, but overall it’s a piece of cake.Read more

Look at all the extra […]Read more

Growing up in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the Pennsylvania Coal Region, pickled eggs (red beet eggs) were served at any picnic or major get together. Hard boiled eggs are pickled in a mixture of vinegar, sugar and red beet juice along with red beets and additional water. Sure the eggs with be red in color in a few hours, but for the best flavor leave them infuse for at least three days. Nothing beets a pickled egg when the white has turned red all the way through to the yolk and it is infused with the sweet pickle flavor. Give it a try. Don’t throw out the left over pickle juice, It taste great by itself.Read more

Stuffing or filling is meant to go inside the turkey while filling. Well we made it in a separate pot and called it filling when technically it is dressing. But hey, to me those two words are interchangeable.Read more

In the Berks County area of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Dutch and the Coal Region call Sloppy Joe’s by another name Barbecues or BBQ for short. Growing up I would see those television commercials for Manwich® or Sloppy Joe’s I and would think to myself. . . gosh who would ever want that. Even at school they served Barbecues. It was not until I was in my twenties that I learned the truth these are the same thing.Read more
