I am looking for a recipe for spiced peaches.  Sometime they are called pickled peaches.  Sometimes they are in barbecue places. Can someone help me with their favorite recipe?

Nancy, I am slowly recovering from major surgery so here are some recipes for this time of the year. The first is not for Christmas but you can give these for Christmas on a cookie plate. This recipe is called Slutty Brownies, can be called Cookie Dough Brownies or Triple Decker Brownies..

Triple Decker Brownies Recipe

1 lb chocolate chip cookie dough
16 Oreo cookies
1 box brownie mix, plus whatever extra ingredients the mix calls for

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Grease a 9x9 inch pan with cooking spray. Spreed cookie dough in an even layer on the bottom. Top with Oreos in an even layer. Mix brownie batter according to package instructions; spread on top. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes before cutting into 16 even squares.

1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Yes, Ruby they will understand. I'm 10 years younger than you and my family understands anything I do to feed them just so I do it. We had 27 for dinner a week or so ago and no one complained the the scalloped potatoes came from Costco. Some even asked for the recipe. Do what you can manage so you have time to visit.

Thanksgiving Crock Pot Recipes

I failed to note the name of the person wanting crockpot recipes that she could use for her Thanksgiving dinner. Here are 3 she may want to try. The last recipe is from Susie Indy. I have often made it, but never really measured the amount of brown sugar I used. I saved Susie's recipe so that when I was asked for measurements I could share the recipe.

Dark Beer and Tangerine Rye Rolls Recipe

1 medium tangerine
1 T. butter
6 oz. dark beer (Michelob works well; Guiness doesn't, & the red beers donít work either)
3-1/4 tsp. packed brown sugar
1/8 c. unsulphured molasses (the really dark one)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fennel seeds
1 5/8 c. bread flour
1 1/4 c. rye flour
2 T. vital gluten
2 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast
1 egg + 1 tsp. water for glaze

Zest tangerine completely; set zest aside. Then squeeze juice into a small cup and reserve it.

Melt butter in a small pan; off heat stir in beer, sugar, & molasses. Pour into bread machine pan.

Add all the zest, 1 tsp. of the juice, salt, & seeds; stir. Add both flours, vital gluten, & yeast.

USING THE PRE-HEAT FUNCTION*, process on Regular Dough cycle; check at 10 minutes; if dough is ragged, add another 1 or 2 tsp. juice. If dough is slack, add 1 or 2 T. bread flour.

At end of cycle, turn machine off but let rise 15 minutes more with lid closed. Turn onto a lightly floured board & punch down just once. Pat flat, cut into 12 pieces, then roll into balls.

Put on a parchment covered baking sheet 2" apart, cover with oiled wax paper, and raise till double, 45 - 60 minutes. While heating oven to 375ļ, snip a deep X on each roll; brush with egg & water glaze; bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on a rack. Will keep just fine in plastic for 3 days, and freeze well too. These are really special. Wish I knew where they came from, some soup/bread book, maybe; they require watching and were hard to adapt to machine, but worth the trouble when tangerines are in season.

*if your machine doesn't have a pre-heat, bring 3-4 cups of water to a boil, microwave or stove.

Pour into machine pan, let sit a few minutes, pour out & put in ingredients as you usually do.

Ruby 87 It's okay to buy the dinners, but first count the people you are to serve, then check how many the dinner will serve. Most of the precooked meals do not serve a crowd. I have found there servings will not serve how many they say it will, so you will need extra.

My suggestion: make up casseroles, fix deserts and ham a couple day's before. Fix congealed salads and cook the turkey the day before, mix up your dressing, Enlist family to help to finish up dinner. This way most of the preperation is done early so you will not be too tired to enjoy your family. Just space the things to do in the days before. I would fix a ham and forget the turkey and dressing. But fix what ever your family prefers Don't forget you can also fix your table early.
