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!

Were you watching the Cooking Channel recently when "It's Better Than Mama Makes" aired?

I was watching it and there were several different people who ate in different restaurants where a "favorite recipe" was demonstrated. There was one which had ITALIAN SAUSAGE, BROCCOLINI AND PASTA, and I tried to recall the ingredients and make it. I didn't have the correct pasta, or was it gnocchi? I used whole grain linguini, and made a sauce with parmesan cheese and half-and-half. It was tasty! If I could recall the actual recipe, I'd be even happier.

Carrot Cake

In 1963 my Mom brought a recipe home for carrot cake made with black walnuts and baked in a angel food pan. No frosting.
Can anyone help me? Over the years I've baked them all. Changed the nuts to black walnuts and baked them in bundt pans. Still haven't found it.

Chicken scaloppini... ish *Looking for a recipe !!!

I am looking for a tried and true recipe for a chicken scaloppini dish that my mom used to make. She passed away without sharing her recipe. I'm sure she got it our of a magazine at some time as she was an avid reader. Her recipe had chicken breast torn or diced, julienned ham and sliced mushrooms in a gravy with pasta or egg noodles (or in her case No-Yolks egg noodles). I would love to find a recipe similar to hers. Any help will be greatly appreciated ! Tia.

Anyone ever make Gnocchi before?

I made the copy cat version of Olive Gardens soup, but I wasn't crazy about the gnocchi I used. The rest was spot on.

xtra bread slices

Good morning,

My husband and I like to get a loaf of French or Italian bread when doing errands at Walmart. But it does not stay fresh long, especially in the warm heat we are still having. I know I can put it in the freezer and do , but wonder what all of you do? Its hot to bake later in the day and wonder if I made a bread pudding, early morning, if it would be very good for after supper dessert. I haven't made many bread puddings. or other ideas ?
We also love to slice a wide wedge, toast in the the morning. then rub it with a clove of garlic all over, sprinkle with olive oil and a little chopped tomato with our coffee in the morning. YUM. We lived in Europe years ago and that's what they do there.
but looking for other ideas for the bread.
thanks!
