Everybody's gotta eat! Favorite recipe's from Deb Smith

Dear ones,

It's likely that Deb has shared yummy recipes over the years with many folks in Cincinnati and Illinois, especially fixins her family really enjoys. Here is an opportunity to bless Deb and Tom and the whole clan in the breaking of bread. If you have a recipe that Deb has told you her family loves for her to make, why not share it here in the comments section of this post for all to see and try. Better yet, share it here, make up a batch, then send the food to Deb and family at home or drop it off to one of the girls if you are in Cincinnati. That way they can enjoy it here or take your loving kindness (the sweetest dish of all) with them the next time the go to be with Deb and Tom in Illinois (see the addresses at the left).

No-Bake Cookies

One of my mom's favorite recipes/dessert items is No-Bake Cookies. Even with a diminished appetite, she has been asking for these. Her mom, Shirley Parriman, made these for her, my mom made these for us as kids and now I make them for my 4 kids. This is the recipe:

-wax paper
-3 cups oats
-1/2 cup milk
-2 cups sugar
-1/4 cup cocoa
-1 stick butter
-mug with light-colored interior (to check the chocolate-colored softness)
-1 tsp vanilla
Step 1: Lay out enough wax paper for at least two dozen cookies. Mix milk, sugar and cocoa on low heat in a pot on top of the stove
Step 2: Melt the butter into the milk, sugar and cocoa on medium heat, stir, then let the mixture bubble
Step 3: Keep stirring. Check for softness by dropping a teaspoonful of the liquid into the mug. It must feel soft to the touch and ball up like candy
Step 4: At this point, turn off the heat and let liquid settle down
Step 5: Mix in the vanilla
Step 6: Stir the oats in quickly with a long-handled soon. Drop cookies on wax paper. Let cool for about 15 minutes.

Praline Yams

Another favorite side dish that my mom loves is Praline Yams. We make these at any family gathering we have, formal or informal. They might as well be dessert!

-40 oz can of yams, drained
-1/2 cup chopped pecans
-1/2 cup coconut
-1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
-1/4 cup flour
-1/4 cup butter, melted
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place drained yams in ungreased 2-quart casserole dish. In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; blend well. Sprinkle over yams. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly. 10 servings.
