I'll be the first to post, even though I can't win! My favorite food of all time is pizza, but I have to eat it gluten free. Does anyone have an awesome gluten free pizza crust recipe?

My favorite is the breakfast cassarole but that has been posted already :(

So I am posting my father's favorite cookies, which I made for him all the time. My mom of course said the ones from the mix are better but I still think these are the bomb!

Here is the recipie

1 cup margarine or butter,softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place them one inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Hope you enjoy them!

I have a YUM casserole. It is a down home comfort food. I should make it in the very near future.

Sour Cream, Cream Cheese Casserole

1 pkg egg noodles
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
1 med onion (I love onions so I use a large)
2 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1 lb hamburger
1 clove garlic, minced (I use 3 or 4 cloves for more flavor)
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of sugar if too tart
cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 450. Boil noodles as per package instructions. Cook hamburger, make sure drained. Add garlic, salt and pepper and sugar if desired. set aside. In food chopper put cream cheese, sour cream and onion. If you are like me and don't have a chopper, chop onion first then combine in a bowl. I usually add the noodles to the cheese mixture. It is easier. Otherwise, layer like you would a lasagna.

Top off with cheddar cheese. It is so gooey yummy.

For the G-F version, substitute any flat gf noodle, but don't cook ALL the way. You want it to still have a bite. Otherwise it will disintegrate completely in the casserole. Talking from experience. :D

Put in oven and cook for 30 to 45 minutes or until the cheese has started to brown. Serve with garlic bread (you can get the gf version or make garlic biscuits. I have a recipe for that too.)

Mary Beth, what cheerful coasters. They make me long for a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day!

I'm new here & came after reading your post on Budgethomemaking.

My favorite food is hard to find. I love to cook & to eat. Here is my dh's favorite cookie recipe.

Browned Butter Pecan Shortbread

1 ½ c real butter
¾ c firmly packed brown sugar
¾ c powdered sugar
3 c all purpose flour
1 ½ c finely chopped pecans (optional)

Cook butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 6 to 8 minutes or until butter begins to turn golden brown. Remove pan from heat immediately and pour butter into a small bowl. Cover & chill one hour or until butter is cool & begins to solidify.

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add brown sugar and powdered sugar, beating until smooth. Gradually add flour to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in pecans.

Shape dough into 4 (8 inch) logs. Wrap logs tightly in plastic wrap & chill 4 hours or until firm. Cut logs into ¼ inch thick rounds, place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350’ for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 10 ½ dozen cookies. NOTE: Sometimes I dip the bottom, sides or drizzle chocolate on them.
