Yummy Chip or Vegetable Dip.

1 Pint Sour Cream
1 8oz Block Cream Cheese
1/2 Package or To Taste Hidden Valley Ranch Powder Dressing Mix

Let the Cream Cheese sit out for about 1/2 hour to soften. Combine Cream Cheese and Sour Cream. Mix with a hand mixer so the Cream Cheese isn’t lumpy. add dressing mix and mix by hand. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

This dip is so delicious, and normally I don’t eat sour cream :smiley:

Buffalo Wings

12 large Chicken Wings Tips removed and split
1/2 to 1 12oz bottle red tabasco sauce depending on how hot you like them
1 Stick Butter
Oil for deep frying

Fry wings in oil until cooked through. While wings are cooking melt butter in small saucepan. Once butter melts completely add Tabasco to your taste. Pour Tabasco/Butter mixture in a large bowl. Toss wings in sauce then place on a platter for serving. Serve immediately. For hotter wings add more Tabasco and less butter. For milder wings less Tabasco and more butter. I have also made these by breading the wings before frying them. They come out great both ways. Makes 24 appetizers.

Dates with almonds, goat cheese and bacon

Large Dates (20, or choose the amount and buy other ingredients accordingly)
1 pkg pre-cooked bacon (15 - 20 strips)
20 whole Almonds
Goat Cheese (about 4 oz., regular or crumbled)

Slice the Date on one side lengthwise making a small pocket and remove pit from Dates. Insert Almond into Date, along with approx. 1 tsp. (large pinch) of Goat Cheese, wrap with bacon around the entire date, place on a cookie sheet (preferably bacon end down and opening to cheese, up). Bake at 350 for approx 12 – 15 minutes, until bacon is sizzling. Place on platter and serve.

*A smoky red is the perfect wine with these. The ingredients may sound a little weird put together, but I have never had a complaint with these. Everyone loves them, even the ones who won’t try them until after a few drinks. I choose pre-cooked bacon because it saves in prep time, but raw bacon can be used and than broil or just bake a little longer. Also, I tend to cut the bacon strips so the dates are not smothered in the bacon. You can use toothpicks if you can’t get the bacon to stay put.

Mini Salmon Quiches

24 frozen mini-tart shells (Tenderflake)
1 can (7-1/2 oz) salmon, drained and flaked
1 green onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
1/2 cup light cream
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
dash pepper

Thaw frozen tart shells according to package directions and place on baking sheet.

Evenly divide and sprinkle salmon, onion and cheese in tart shells.

Beat together cream, eggs, salt and pepper; pour over salmon mixture in shells.

Bake in a preheated 375 F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until quiche is set and pastry is golden.


Follow salmon recipe but substitute salmon and onion for 1/3 pound coarsely chopped cooked shrimp and 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp dried dill.


Follow salmon recipe but substitute salmon and onion for 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms and 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley.

**NOTE: You can put just about any combination in the tart shells and cover with the egg mixture. (i.e. blanched broccoli florets and crumbled cooked bacon)

Helpful Hint: If you would like to warm up the mini quiches in the microwave before serving, remember to remove the foil pans.

Jalepeno Cream Cheese

1 (8 oz) jalepeno jelly (or red pepper jelly)
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened

Pour jelly over cream cheese and serve with crackers. Ritz or any buttery type work well. It is definitely on the spicy side, so if you don’t want too spicy, look for or make your own milder version of the jelly.

Spinach Stuffed Mushroom Caps

1 pkg. (12 oz.) frozen, chopped spinach
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1 c. sour cream
½ t. garlic powder
2 lbs. Fresh mushrooms
2 T soft butter or margarine

Thaw spinach and press out liquid. Mix together spinach, soup mix, sour cream, and garlic powder. Remove mushroom stems. Fill caps with spinach mixture. Grease a 10x15” rimmed baking pan with the butter and arrange mushroom caps in pan. Chill if made ahead, otherwise bake covered at 350 for 12 minutes or until hot.

Frozen lemonade with
Either lemon vodka ( I prefer Grey Goose) or
Limon Bacardi

A simple drink I have enjoyed for many years is.

A shot of Galliano liquor
In a glass of Coke
With a splash of a beer,

Then shaken, and then served.
It tastes a lot like a root beer with a kick.


Two parts Orange-pineapple Juice,
one part Banana Rum,
one part Malibu Rum

(It has another, less polite name).

I don’t know the exact proportions,

Cream de cocoa,
And milk.

It tastes like a chocolate shake…but the vodka will sneak up on you.

Hi Everyone,
My name is Claudius and I am new to this site. I joined it in hopes of finding a recipe for an iced tea that my relative called “seed beer” that was made by my Aunt in Carbondale (Southern) Illinois back in the 40s and 50s.
