I spent a week in Paris, TX visiting family over Christmas. Of course my brother had a fish fry and there was loads of catfish. Unfortunately, I didn't get my fix and once I got back home (Alaska) I had to buy catfish at Walmart and make more. I STILL didn't get my fix and went back yesterday and bought a 4 lb. box of the stuff. I'm thinking I should take it to work and fry it up for everyone for lunch today. What a great way to spend the first day back at school---no kids until tomorrow.

Brunch Recipes that do not have to be baked at the last minute

I am having a Christmas Day Brunch for 16 people and need some recipes that can be cooked without needing the oven or cooked the day before. I already have 5 things that have to be baked and shuffled to keep them warm and can't accommodate another recipe that has be cooked the day of.

Looking for a cake recipe

I don't know the name of it, but thought maybe some of you could help me out.
This cake is similar to a cheesecake, but made with more flour, I think, and is baked in a round pan and served in wedges. It can actually be eaten with the hand - it's rich, compact, and not too sweet. Pale creamy colored on top, lightly brown on the bottom. It may be one of those "makes its own crust" recipes.
I hope this is enough information for someone to suggest a recipe. :-)

Request for side dishes to Enchilada's.....need six more side dishes.

Hi Everyone,

I am in a process of trying to redeem myself with my father. He loves when I make enchiladas but I haven't made him any for quite some time. So upon there arrival back to Ohio from... sunny Florida I plan on having 12 Monday's that will be "Enchilada Night with my Parents". I have the enchiladas all picked out and still working on a few recipes. I will have 3 beef enchiladas, 3 chicken enchiladas, 3 pork enchiladas, 2 vegetarian enchiladas and 1 seafood enchilada. ---- I have a excel spreadsheet I am working out each item that I need. Here are the six sides I have so far and need 6 more. Preferably no more rice dishes but something else. 5 of the recipes are from Just a Pinch and one is just box rice. I'll use it on one of the more complex enchiladas that I am making. --- I would like to have my list completed by the 1st of March. Thanks for all your help and input. xooxox
