chocolate pie

Looking for a recipe that used ready made graham cracker crust, and chocolate syrup and chocolate pudding and maybe cool whip? Not sure what was ALL in it, just know it was super easy and nothing cooked or special to it... basic chocolate ingredients.

Does anyone remember a type of candy called Vermont maple leaf? It was a sugary little piece of candy in the shape of a maple leaf. When we would travel to New England when I was a child, my parents would always buy a box of this. It's been decades since I've seen it or even thought about it. It's almost pure sugar, very decadent and bad for you, but it certanly was good!

Looking for a Muffin Recipe from the mid-late 1970's....

Hi! Am looking for the recipe that was "the rage" in the mid 70's and on, for "Refrigerator Bran Muffins". There are many online these days BUT they are NOT the same as I used back then. Had 2 kinds of Bran, buttermilk, flour, eggs,raisins, nuts/optional, coconut/optional and the standard other ingredients for muffins. It was mixed, baked what ya wanted and the rest was stored in the frig., to use when & if ya wanted fresh muffins! PLEASE! does anyone have this recipe? Thank you.

Cornbread dressing

Looking for really good recipes for cornbread dressing. I combined some I found for Thanksgiving dressing. Everyone thought it was the best they had ever had. Unfortunately, I didn't make a note of what I did and my Christmas dressing didn't measure up.
