Post requests for you long lost favorites. We all love to cook and you'd be surprised how many of us have the exact recipe you're looking for!


cottage cheese cookies

By Peg Barker - Aug 26, 2014

Hi. When I was 16 (too many years ago to count!) I worked on a hay farm for the summer. I did all the baking and we provided lunch for the men working in the fields. The woman I worked with handed me a recipe for cottage cheese cookies. That's the only name I know although it could have a different name. Once mixed, you rolled the dough out, cut with a biscuit cutter, half of the dough you cut with a donut cutter so there was a hole in the middle. On the bottom of the cookie, you placed a teaspoon of jam and then put the top on with the hole over the jam. You then pinched the dough to seal or you could use a damp fork. I've looked everywhere for that recipe. I even wrote to the woman I worked for but she was getting older and didn't have a clue what I was asking for. Has anyone heard of these cookies and if so, does anyone have the recipe? If so, I'd appreciate getting it from you. I'm 65 now and would love to make those cookies at least once more while I can still bake. They were so delish.
Thank you.

Thought it would be a good idea just to have a specific place for posting "Recalls!"

By Joey Wolf - Aug 21, 2014

does anyone have a recipe for a homeopathic gall bladder treatment or cleanse? I used one years ago, and lost it. It's been a miserable week for me and I just don't have time to be sick right now...sigh....like there's ever a good time

Breakfast dippers?

By 'Ria Murphy - Aug 16, 2014

My daughter loves those breakfast sausage wrapped in pancake on a stick things (like corndogs) you can get in the freezer section at the store. The problem?
(a) I rarely trust the ingredients in pre-processed foods.
(b) We're poor.

I've tried twice now, but can't seem to get my pancake batter to stick to the sausage to deep fry them, and I would really like to make a huge batch of these for the freezer for her in the mornings. Can anyone help?
