Can someone help me find an old recipe??

I am looking for a recipe from the 1970's called Hawaiian Chicken. It was a casserole and all I can do is list some of the ingredients and hope that someone has the recipe. It was really very good. And I have not been able to find the recipe although I have searched for years for the exact recipe. It's that good. Anyway here is a list of the ingredients that I know was in the recipe: chicken, Hi Ho or Ritz crackers, Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup or Cream of Mushroom Soup. It also called for a bag of frozen "Ranch Vegetables." And I don't think they even make the vegetables by that name now as I can't find them. It also called for chunk or crushed pineapple. That's all I know but I think maybe also melted butter. But I have tried to duplicate the recipe over the years and while my recipe is okay, it is still not what I'm looking for. Can anyone help me find this recipe??? I know there are hundred's of Hawaiian Chicken Recipes but this particular one from the 70's just stands out above all the rest. Thanks so much for any help.

From my days in elementary school, I have a few favorites. I have been searching for one particular one for years. Hope someone out there can help.

It was served on hamburger buns, open faced. It was a simple (I think) thing. The buns were topped with a cheese-type spread with bacon bits. They were then baked. A greasy mess, but tasty! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Kifil Hungarian cookie Recipe

By annie Kelly

First let me introduce myself. My name is Annie.
I am looking for a Hungarian cookie recipe called a kifil. My husbands aunt use to make these always for the holidays. She gave me the recipe many years ago and I have made them only twice which was over 20 years ago. I went looking for the recipe and it cannot be found. It might have gotten lost in our move to Sc.
I know it had creame cheese in it and a little bit of strong coffee or whiskey which ever you preferred. Naturally I made it her way with the couple of tablespoons of the whiskey.
If anyone has this recipe I sure would appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for your help..

I don't know chicken recipe

By Tina Cannon

There is a Chinese Restaurant in St.Petersburg Florida near the V.A. that served a Chicken Dish Named " I don't know Chicken". It was sweet and spicy, I think it might have had peanut butter in it.
Any idea of what it was?

Calling All Grandparents!

No matter if you're a "newbie" grandparent or an experienced "veteran" grandparent, this group is for you. After 30 years of being a "professional mom", I became a grandparent and realized that I suddenly had a whole new role to learn. Whether you are a long-distance grandparent, or a daily caregiver, everyone can use advice on handling situations unique to being a grandparent.

Whether you are looking for the perfect birthday gift for a 9 year old, have an awesome recipe idea for a finicky 2 year old or are dealing with navigating your way through a difficult family issue, I'm willing to bet that the wonderful men and women on JAP have a bit of wise, tried and true advice to guide you through successfully to the other side.

Let this be a safe-haven to discuss any issue relating to being a grandparent. Fun recipe ideas for children, age appropriate gift ideas, crafts, being the very best long-distance (...or short-distance!) grandparent you can be or talking your way through a difficult family situation, please feel safe and secure talking your way through to a happy ending with the wise and incredible advice of fellow JAP grandparents. Feel free to swap those ideas which were huge successes... and of course, those that were complete flops! =)

As always, please be kind, gentle, respectful and non-judgmental. Above all, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
