a couple of days ago i started the thread on what foods did you miss from childhood, well as i was reading down the page i happened to remember something that was sooooo important to me and the kids in my neighborhood. the Good Humor ice cream truck.
omgosh, i can still hear the sound of the bells ringing as the truck got closer and closer to my house and how all of us kids would run to get our nickles or dimes to pay for the ice creams.
my favorite was the rootbeer and or banana popsicles. they were only 5 cents.
please someone tell me you had the same wonderful experience as i did in those very hot summers were you played outside all day long.
thinking back as a child living in new york in the late 50's and 60's i have to say i really miss the cannoli's. i've tried them from several bakeries in md., va., and wv. but, i have come to the conclusion that it must be the atmosphere or somethings in the water.
one more thing, blackberrie cobbler, my late grandmother made for us right after we picked the berries. omgosh!!!
just a thought, is there a bakery in ny. that i could overnight a couple dozen? if so, could you help me out?

can you please help, the monies go to a volunteer fire dept.
my brother is fire chief for local volunteer fire dept. and he wants me to fix a large amount of macaroni and potato salad. now i make very good potato salad but i need a help with macaroni salad.
i went to the recipes find on serious eats and wasnt too empressed. one recipe had pineapples, no i just don't think these guys want that.
i would like your good homestyle recipes.
thanks guys, you've helped me several times.
so far i have tried 3 different recipes for pound cake and would love to find the perfect one. i don't care how many recipes you send or suggest i am on a mission to bake the best pound cake ever. baking is my passion, pure and simple, i love every minute of it .
i started my 4 year old grandson out in the high chair with flour and milk when he was very small and now he has to help everytime i'm baking or cooking.
i think i'm training him up to be a foodie, he eats just about everything, veggies included.
i'm a cookie fanatic who searches new recipes all the time and i'm pretty sure that i have seen such as a brownie cookie. maybe someone out there knows the recipe. right off i don't know where to find it.
for senior project in government class daughter has to come up with a nigerian dish for classmates. does anyone know something fast and easy. i don't have a clue. maybe something with rice?
there's a recipe in todays sunday parade for potatoe salad that has this as second ingredient, what is it, i never heard of it and what other recipes does it go in?
hubby took me out for mothers day dinner and one of the deserts was "sugar cream pie". I've never heard of it but, it was really good. very small piece was all you needed. has anyone else heard of this and do you have the recipe?
Whatever happened to the curly black headed girl that won the Food Network's cooking contest that was suppose to have her own show this year. the contest Guy Fieri won the year before. their advertising a new contest and i don't remember seeing her on at all. God knows I don't remember her name, I'm sorry. Was it Lisa?
i would love to have one of his cookbooks and i can't remember his full name. he was an older gentleman that had the strong italian accent and he made italian cooking so easy. He wore the big white chef's hat and used alot of orange juice in his recipes.
someone please remember.
side by side, freezer up or freezer down, which do prefer? i have side by side and to tell your the truth i have never cared for it. for those of you out there that have a freezer down, do you like it?
who in new york city or anywhere has the best and does anyone have a recipe i can fix at home. i live in west virginia now and i havent had one since 1966. this must be why i'm depressed, lol.
hearing so much about this cake and i probably have enough cake pans so i would like to try it
my kids want to make the funnel cakes like you buy at carnivals, parades and amusement parks. its the fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. we have a birthday party coming soon so could someone out there help. oh, its for my youngest, and she turns eighteen. tell me time doesnt fly, yeah right.
i remember when school lunchs were homemade. nothing was frozen. how you could by peanut butter or egg salad sandwiches everyday for 15 cents. yes im in my 50's but, this is not that long ago. whatever happened with the money for our kids that use to be set aside by our school boards for fresh foods. homemade meatloaf, vegetable soup, fish and fries, the list could go on. this makes me sad that most of the kids dont even eat the food perpared for them, they go hungrey. i know you cant sell a sandwich for 15 cents now, thats not the point, teaching our kids to eat healthy and to make smart choices is. have u ever volunteered at the lunch room, i have, most of the food gets dumped in the garbage can. its sickening.
grew up next door to a wonderful greek family and remember as a child being called into their kitchen to sample a plate of whatever mrs. vondas was cooking for supper, (also remember both cheeks being pinched, greek thing?) would love to know what these spiniach entrees are called and how to make them.
so far i have made only pot roast in this Bravetti 6 quart. it turned out great.
so very easy, push one button to start and one button to let steam out. nothing like mom used when we were little and had to be run out of the house in fear that it would blow up. this thing is great, everyone should have one because of the speed in preparing a meal. no i don't work for the company, just a stay at home mom
