      Finally found the recipe I wanted to add. My family makes this for almost every holiday. It's great served with ham but also great by itself. Some even eat it cold with whipped topping.

      Pineapple Stuffing
      1 stick of butter, softened
      1 cup of sugar
      4 eggs
      1 can of crushed pineapple (20oz)
      5 slices of bread, cut into cubes

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch casserole dish.
      2. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs, then add pineapple and bread cubes.
      3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Bake covered for first 1/2 hr and uncovered for second 1/2 hr. It should be a golden brown on top.

        I know that this is an old thread but given the time of year I think its time to revive it!!

        I'm a huge fan of baking and this Christmas I have decided that I'm going to make some different baked goods to give to our families and friends. I'm no Martha but I try.

        Anyway, here is one that I tried out last night and I think this is going to be the winner (for the mini loafs).


        1) Preheat over to 350 degrees and grease 1 loaf pan

        2) Beat together 2 eggs in a large mixing bowl

        3) Add the following ingredients and blend well
        - 1/2 cup white sugar
        - 1/2 cup brown sugar
        - 1 cup egg nog (not light)
        - 1/2 cup melted margarine
        - 2 teaspoons rum extract
        - 1 teaspoon vanilla extrat

        4) Add the following to mixture and stir until moist
        - 2 1/4 cup flour
        - 2 teaspoons baking powder
        - 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

        5) Pour better into greased loaf pan.

        6) In a small prep bowl mix together 2 tablespoons white sugar and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Spinkle on top of mixture

        7) Bake loaf for 45-50 min or until toothpick comes out clean.

        Let sit for 10 min on a cooling rack before trying to cut.

        9) The best part...EAT and ENJOY!!

          mmm yummy!

          This is a super easy cider but sooooooo good.

          In a pan combine 2 cups apple juice and 2 cups cranberry juice as well as 2 cinnamon sticks. Simmer until hot.

          My friend just made this for a party and I was shocked when she told me thats all that was in it. It was so good!

              wow this all look so good... here are a few i love to make that are pretty simple.
              baked crab wontons

              1 box dry vegetable soup mix (I use Knorr brand)
              1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
              8 ounces crabmeat, imitation crabmeat or 2 cans drained and flaked
              1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
              1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
              Worcestershire sauce to taste
              Hot pepper sauce to taste
              40 wonton wrappers
              1 tablespoon vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray

              Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
              In bowl, combine soup mix, ricotta, crab, garlic powder and pepper. Mix well.
              (I chill this for about an hour at this point to let the soup mix rehydrate)
              Place 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture in center of each wonton.
              Brush edges with water.
              Fold each corner to center and press firmly to seal.
              Arrange, seam side down, on baking sheet.
              Brush with oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
              Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, turning once, or until crisp and golden brown.
              Serve with duck sauce or hot mustard if desired.

              here is another favorite

              shrimp mold (dip)

              Shrimp mold

              1 can of tomato soup
              1 block of cream cheese
              ½ a tsp of salt
              1 cup of mayo
              finely chopped onion and celery
              1 can of baby shrimp
              1 package of knox gelatine

              cream the soup and cream cheese together until melted, dissolve the gelatine in cold water (on package), added to the soup mix. Stir in celery and onions and mayo. Refrigerate until solid.
