Inquring Minds Want to Know - Share your favorite recipe

It may surprise everyone to learn that I really am not much of a cook, considering all the recipes I've posted on this blog.  But if it's complicated or really involved, I'm not going to do it. And nothing ever comes out looking the way it's supposed to look.  But I love seeing new recipes, especially ones that people enjoy sharing with their family and friends.

So, it's time for you to share with us one of your favorite recipes.  If it has history, please share that too.

I made a new one last night that was GOOD. I got it from Pinterest. You bread your chicken breasts and bake it for about 10 minutes. While it's baking, you mix 1/3 C of lemon juice, 1/2 C of honey, 3 T BBQ sauce and 1/2 cup of melted butter. Take the chicken out of the oven, cook it in a skillet with the sauce and DANG it is GOOD!

Anna Kathryn, here is my favorite dish to take to a covered dish dinner or a salad luncheon. It's a Corn Salad.
2 cans whole corn, drained
1 cup chopped purple onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups Hellmann's mayonnaise
1 pkg. Chili Cheese Fritos
Mix all ingredients except Fritos and chill in fridge. Just before serving, add the coarsely crumbled Fritos and mix together.

Here's my easy and yummy salad recipe:

Broccoli Salad


1 bunch of broccoli, heads cut off
1 medium onion, chopped
½ pound of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled


1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoon vinegar


Fix the dressing ahead of time and put in refrigerator. Mix the broccoli, onion and bacon. An hour before serving, pour the dressing on broccoli salad.

3 cups unsifted all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar 2 cups water
½ cup Hershey Cocoa ¾ cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking soda 2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla and beat for 3 minutes at medium speed until thoroughly blended. Pour into a greased and floued 13x9x2 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
Cool and frost as desired. Personally I like White Mountain icing but some of my family prefers peanut butter icing.
I got this recipe from the Hershey’s Cocoa Cookbook that was free when I bought a can of cocoa many years ago. I have never known it to fail to rise into a beautiful cake that is delicious and always moist. My best friend and I used to make it for birthdays when we worked in coronary care years ago and everyone loved it.
