Recently I received an email invitation to participate in a Recipe Exchange and thought with the holidays coming up soon that a Recipe Exchange would be fun to do here at Cake Central. Post one of your favorite recipes and see what other great recipes other members will post for you to add to your recipe collections!
ALL TYPES OF RECIPES WELCOME! It does not have to be cakes or cookies.

For starters here is mine;

I hope you enjoy it as it is a wonderfully delicious cake! My mother made this cake for years for our family and we are still loving it!! icon_smile.gif

Fruit Cocktail Cake

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 can fruit cocktail, do not drain. You will add juice and all.

Brown Sugar, 1/2 cup, more or less to your likeing
Pecan pieces 1/2 cup, more or less to your desire

Mix all ingredients together. Put ina 9 x 13 prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees until done. Check for doneness at 40 minutes and bake until toothpick comes clean. A little crumb is normal with this cake as it is very moist. Remove cake from oven and immediatly sprinkle with desired amount of brown sugar and pecan pieces.

For icing;

In a small saucepan melt 1 stick butter, 1 cup sugar and 2/3 cup of milnot or other canned evaporated milk. Stirring constantly bring to a rolling boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
There are two ways to serve the cake;
1. Remove cake from oven, top with brown sugar and pecan pieces then poke holes all over the top of the cake going all the way through it. Pour warm icing over cake.
2. Store icing in airtight container in fridge. Heat in microwave until warm and drizzle over slice of cake to serve.
This is my favorite way to serve the cake because it looks nice and a bit more professional if I have company.
If it is just me and my husband I usually do method number 1 for convenience sake.
This cake is fabulous served warm!

I think this is a great thing to do! I love sharing recipes! For my first submission I'd like to share an appitizer recipe...

Creamy Chip Beef Roll Ups

1 package chipped beef (in the pre-packaged meat/cheese/pepperoni section of the store NOT THE FROZEN CREAMED CHIPPED BEEF)
1 package Cream cheese - NON flavored

In a small bowl mix by hand, the cream cheese until soft and smooth.

Lay out the beef strips so they don't over lap and so that the widest end is at the bottom (one end is always wider then the other icon_wink.gif)

With a spoon, drop small spoonfulls of the cream cheese on the chip beef and carefully/gently smooth it all over from end to end.

Carefully roll them from the bottom (widest part) to the top, sticking it with a toothpick to hold it together and place in the fridge until ready to serve.

Makes a great appetizer or anytime snack, would also go great with some Ritz brand crackers icon_wink.gif

Becky, can you get the "Sweet Lebanon Bologna" from the deli's where you live? My SIL is from Philly and brought me some of that wonderful stuff. She told me to spread cream cheese on it like your recipes says to do, roll it up and enjoy! My gosh! My tastebuds were in heaven until it was all gone and where I live you can not get it for anything. I have called deli's, distributors and all kinds of grocery stores all over the Houston area and no one can get it in. It is certainly a native food of the PA area. I am thinking maybe it could be shipped?

Perfect for special occations such as Thanksgiving or christmas day, I want to share this one:

PATE IN FILO CUPS (makes about 24)

3-6 fresh or defrosted sheets filo pastry
3 tablespoons butter, melted
8 oz canned foie gras or other fine liver paté, at room temperature
4 tablespoons butter, softened
2-3 tablespoons cognac or brandy (optional)
chopped pistachios, to garnish

- Preheat oven at 400ºF. Grease a muffin pan. Stack the filo sheets on a work surface and cut into 2½ inch squares. Cover with a damp towel to prevent the pastry from drying out.
-Place one square on a work surface and brush lightly with melted butter, both sides. Butter a second square and place it over the first at an angle. Butter a thrid, and place at a different angle over the first two.
-Press the pastry layers into the muffin pan. Continue with the remaining pastry, until all the cups are filled.
-Bake for 4-6 mins, until crisp and golden. Cool inthe pan for 5 mins. Carefully remove each filo to a wire rack and cool.
-In a small bowl, beat the paté with the butter until well blended. Add the cognac or brandy to taste, if using. Spoon into a piping bag fitting with a med star tip and pipe a swirl into each cup. Sprinkle with pistachios.

Enjoy it! icon_biggrin.gif

Hot Chicken Casserole

3 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup mayo
1 can waterchestnuts, chopped
1 cup diced celery
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup almonds
3 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package of Ritz crackers, crushed
3/4 stick of margarine
2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese

Blend soup, mayo, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add other ingredients.
Place mixture in a buttered casserole. Mix Ritz crackers, margarine and
cheese together and sprinkle on top. Bake for 30-45 minutes, uncovered at 350 degrees F.

This is my family's favorite soup! It is SO good! You could add in more veggies, according to your family's taste! It is really easy--the only part that is a pain is getting the lumps out of the roux, but making sure the milk is hot when you add it helps a lot with that!



Potato & Ham Soup

4 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, chopped into cubes
1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
1 cup of diced ham (I just get 1/2 inch slab cut from deli)
3 1/4 cups water
1 can of chicken broth
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

5 tablespoons butter or margarine
5 tablespoons flour
2 cups hot milk
1 cup of cheese

Combine water, chicken broth, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, (and any other favorite herbs you may have!) in a large stockpot. Toss in the potatoes, ham and onion, and bring to a boil. Let boil for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

In a saucepan or deep skillet, melt 5 tablespoons of butter on low heat. Meanwhile, heat 2 cups of milk in the microwave. Once the butter has melted, whisk in flour with a fork--stir quickly until thick and pastelike. Be sure not to burn the roux! Slowly stir in the milk. Be sure to keep whisking to get the lumps out, it may take a while. Once the lumps are out, keep stirring til thick, about 4-5 minutes. Add in a couple handfuls of your favorite cheese, stir until melted.

Add the milk mixture in with the potatoes. Stir to incorporate, and heat for 5 more minutes. Serve with good bread!!

My version of Chimichangas: (...I know it would help if I had exact measurements for things like the meat and tortillas, but I usually just use leftover pulled pork for these, and just fill the tortillas until I run out. I'd say I usually use about 2-3 cups of shredded pork and it makes a dozen or more!) My husband loves these, and he isn't usually a fan of Mexican-style. They are pretty spicy, but I'm sure you could cut back the chili powder to adjust if you wanted to.

Chimichangas:

2-3 cups of cooked shredded pork
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup cheese
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
12 tortillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large deep skillet, heat pork, onion, and bell pepper. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, oregano, pepper, salt, garlic powder, and chili powder. Add the sour cream mixture to the meat. Combine well. Then add the cheese with the meat mixture. Stir to combine. Will be thick!

Fill each tortilla with a couple tablespoons of meat mixture. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Arrage in baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. (If you like fried chimichangas, you can fry them instead! I just find baking them less messy!)

Serve with red or green sauce.

Sounds great Carrie! I added the first two... I didn't add the second one (to my word document file that I'll print when this thread dies lol), we don't care too much for hot and spicy foods icon_sad.gif I can't handle them since my gal bladder surgery so we stay clear of that stuff, however it does sound delicious!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Does anyone have a GOOD recipe for Chicken Noodle soupicon_smile.gif

OhMyGoodies Posted 3 Oct 2007 , 1:01am
post #30 of 62

My best friend always makes it by eye... so there are no real measurements going on...

One whole roasting chicken, cooked and picked, chilled and cubed.
2-8 carrots depending on how big and how much soup making chunked to match chicken chunks
2-8 celery stalks chunked as above
1 box frozen peas (added near the end of the cooking)
1 box frozen corn (added near the end)
1 large can of potatoes - cubed/chunked to same size as chicken
one medium onion cut up
salt
pepper
oregano
parsley flakes
garlic or garlic salt/powder
chicken seasoning (powder)
one large box egg noddles or your favorite noddles
and finally store bought chicken stock

She prepares all her's in the morning and puts it in a crock pot and lets it go all day... it's on of those soups you can add or remove anything you want icon_wink.gif

You could add a little something to make it thicker if you desire...

Paula made a killer chicken noodle soup the other day (Paula's Home Cookin') I'm sure you can find it on food networks site if you'd rather use that one... she didn't chunk her chicken she just pulled it apart and had HUGE pieces of chicken that you'd need to eat the soup with a knife and spoon icon_wink.gif
