I have a lot of recipes that need 1 can cherry, blueberry, apple, peach and other fruits pie filling; in Portugal we don't have canned pie filling but I'd like to try the recipes; maybe you can teach me how to make fruit pie fillings by myself. I'd like to know the weight of the most common canned pie filling too.
Thanks. Chris

I once had a cake recipe that has a dry mix cake, jello powder and other ingredientes, all mixed, end then it went to bake. It's not the Poke Cake, because the jello went withe the cake batter in the oven to bake; does anybody know that kind of recipe?
Thanks, Emma

I am looking for a Banana Pie recipe where the filling is caramel like. Thank you!

Hi Nancy:
If you like spicy food, this is a great recipe. It is probably good without the pepper flakes, but I have not made it that way. It is a little heavy so we don't have it very often - but we do love it! I adapted it several years ago from a recipe at

Wicked Chicken Recipe

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 Tblsp. butter
4-1/2 oz. mini penne or mini shells (about 1-1/4 cups)
15 oz. Alfredo sauce
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
Grated Parmesan

While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; melt butter in a large skillet and cook chicken for about 3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. Remove chicken from skillet and slice; return to the skillet and sprinkle the chicken with red pepper flakes to taste.
Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and stir in the Alfredo sauce until combined. Transfer to a lightly greased 1-1/2 qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with a little grated Parmesan.

Ana's Dried Apple Pie Recipe

1 lb. dried apples
1 1/2 c. brown sugar (may use half white)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (optional)

May also add 1 tablespoon margarine and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Cover apples with cold water and soak overnight. Using the same water (more if necessary) cook apples until tender. Add sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Continue to cook until thick, stirring frequently. Fill pie crust, cut vent in top crust. Bake at 350 to 375 degrees for about 50 minutes, or until crust is brown and the apples "ooze" from the vents. Some recipes I have for dried apple pie call for cloves and allspice, 1/4 teaspoon for each pie plus the cinnamon and nutmeg.
