Have been looking at your recipes and had a sudden brain POOF , my mom at Christmas made a Christmas pudding she made and had a REAL strong topping that she called ‘Rum Pudding’ . I for the life of me cannot find a recepe with such ingredeance . Don’t know if the pudding was ‘Christmas cake ‘ or not . I asked for more topping but she said I could not handle it because it was very rich , WOW it was so rice and taste it knocked my socks off . Do you know what desert it was from my description ?

Thank you for your time


Paula March 25, 2016 at 2:45 pm

Hi Ralph,
I do not recognize a dessert by your description. Sorry. paula


Mary Lou Gist January 3, 2016 at 5:59 pm

Paula, do you remember Ell’s Breakfast slices sold here in Dallas at grocery stores at least at Safeway back then. Would love to replicate. Can’t find anything on it on internet, etc. It just disappeared! Better than Hawaiian bread.


Paula January 4, 2016 at 2:34 pm

Hi Mary Lou,
I don’t remember that bread. Sounds like I missed out on something really delicious. paula

Hi Paula,

Reading your site with interest…
Just getting back into bread-baking after a few years. Have a machine, but did not like the recipe I tried last night, so am looking for other recipes…

Thanx for your elaborate site…! Great effort…!

Wanted to let you know that the link to your recipe “Honey Whole Wheat Bread” is leading me to the “Choosing the Right Bread Machine” article…

Regards, Peter

Hey love your recipes for cream soups… Do you have one for cream of chicken?
This is one I use all the time and would love to have a homemade one.


Sue June 15, 2013 at 2:59 pm

I noticed you mentioned your coffee concentrate, but I couldn’t find anything on it. Have you done a segment about it?


Tina January 19, 2013 at 9:23 pm

Hi Paula, I thought it was here that I found a plain white queso dip. I see the one with corn, but I thought you had a version like the kind you get at Mexican restaurants. I don’t see it on the list. Was I wrong? Thanks.

I just purchased the zojirushi bb-cec20 and am so disappointed. I am used to baking by hand and so far, after trying two of the basic recipes in the recipe book, I am not impressed. According to you: It seems that I will not be baking in the machine (which seems a waste of machine?). I will try to use the dough setting only, bake in oven, check the dough while mixing and kneading for correct consistency… any other suggestions?


Lili November 4, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Where is the recipe for :Rosemary Potato and Pepper Bacon Cheese Pie


Liz October 25, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I don’t see the recipe for Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti. It brings me to a FLICKR page with pictures, but no picture of that.


Katie August 24, 2012 at 8:23 am

Hi Paula,
Seeing as you are my bread recipe Queen, I thought I should ask you before searching elsewhere. Have you ever made croissants? I have been intimidated by them before, but I’m ready to take on the challenge! Do you know of a really good recipe?
Thanks! Katie


Paula August 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

Hi Katie,
Thanks for the bread recipe Queen compliment. I have made croissants but decided they were NOT worth the trouble or calories so have not revisited the idea. Let me know if you find a good and easy recipe. When I want something special, I make brioche.


Audrey August 16, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Love love LOVE this website! didn’t even realize we are church buddies until watching your salad video! Great job you’ve done here!
Since it says leave a reply for requests, any new salad dressing ideas? Thank you, and thanks for your great blog! You are so very talented!


Barbara May 9, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Over there, on the right. I see a lovely photo of “hearty Baked Beans”, but I don’t see a recipe anywhere. Clicking on the photo only gets me to a page with only the photo. I’d love to make them from scratch and not rely on Campbells P & B.


Paula May 10, 2012 at 4:49 am

Thank-you, thank-you for writing. I fixed it. The baked beans are fabulous. Didn’t want you to miss out on them. pr


Patricia April 24, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Please I need an vacuum packing machine. My phone number is 215.554.7881 or 813.325.2066


Molly Wieber March 15, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Hi Paula,
I have more questions about your Salad in a Jar.
* I use a lot of DARK leafy greens. Will these work?
*Why do you suppose spinach does not?
* It seems like it would be far more efficient to pack other salad fixins’ with the lettuce, as I can see it still taking some time each morning to pull together the salad. I would never just eat lettuce and dressing. I load my salad with fresh sprouts, basil, onions, and other bits of wonderfulness! Have you ever tried adding things to the lettuce and THEN vacuum sealing it?

Thanks for your help!


Paula March 16, 2012 at 6:33 am

Hi Molly,
The dark leafy greens are too fragile to store for long. Although some readers tell me they vacuum-pack spinach, it doesn’t keep more than about 3 days for me which isn’t any better than a plastic bag. Same with spring mix and most fresh herbs.

You can add other fixings to your salad if they are “sturdy”. Such things as carrots and peppers work pretty well. Mushrooms, cucumbers and tomatoes not so much. But nothing lasts as long as Romaine which will go almost two weeks if the lettuce is really fresh going in.

Since I am eating my salads mostly at work, I add lots of nuts and dried fruits or dried tomatoes (shelf-stable kind of stuff) along with Fiber One. But sometimes I’ll throw in a foil pack of tuna or salmon, some cherry tomatoes or mandarin oranges. You get the idea.

Adding stuff before you vacuum-pack adds time and my goal is to pack 5-6 jars in less than 20 minutes. Frankly, after 7 years of doing this, it can become a bit of drudgery to prepare so the faster the better. When it comes time to pack my lunch, I am so thankful I forced myself to make the salads. When the lettuce is already prepared, cutting up 2-3 veggies seems like no big deal. At least, that’s the way it is for me.

Sorry I got so long-winded here but hope this answers your questions. pr


ann January 5, 2012 at 10:05 am

Hi…just found your site…..WOW! Can’t go wrong here for ideas…..I am trying to convert some of your measurements to English pounds, ounces and metric… well as finding an alternative to ingredients I can’t get……It’s going to be nice experimenting with my new breadmaker….ps…thanks for all the tips on using it…brill….keep it up…..maybe cupcake recipies next????? !!!!


Paula January 6, 2012 at 8:36 am

Sorry you have to make so many conversions. If I was really cool, I would do it for you but I’m “metric-impaired” so no telling how things would turn out.

Don’t hold your breath on the cupcakes. So many other people are doing those that I may not go there for awhile.

Have fun with your breadmaker! Write back if you run into problems.


Trice November 24, 2011 at 3:47 pm

You know I JUST found your blog and I really do find it so interesting. I love the way you make things seem so “duh!” when it comes to eating healthier. I totally make your yogurt now every week FAT FREE now. -smiling- I have to admit today was Apple Butter Day for our family. The hubby and 2 kids help peel a 1/2 bushel of apples to make the butter. Love the bonding it gives the family. Along that note I think you should give the followers (that sounds wierd ,but you know what I mean -smiling more-) a tutorial on something easy and healthy like…..a Crock Pot apple butter. You can do it! Well that is my 2 cents (man I miss the cent sign, yes I am alittle aged) for the day. Regardless of if you do this mission keep up the great work….were watching! -yes smiling-


Paula November 24, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Thanks Trice, you’ve given me some ideas. Glad you enjoy the yogurt. It’s fantastic, isn’t it. Paula


Mallory November 15, 2011 at 11:35 pm

I just made Scooter’s Spaghetti for dinner for my boyfriend of one year. I never cook but that was super easy and extremely tasty!!! Thank you for sharing. My roommate is eager to dig into the leftovers on her lunch break tomorrow since she missed out on our fantastic dinner!


Laura November 10, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Just found your website! I LOVE your recipes! I made my first one last night – the Cheesy Crusted Yeast Rolls – ohmigoodness, they were heavenly! I made them to use with the Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork by Ree Drummond( I made last night and used the rolls to make “sliders” with the BBQ. What a divine combination! I cannot wait to make more of your recipes! It was super easy to follow and oh so yummy!!!! Kids, teens, and adults all LOVED them!!!! Thank you!!!!


Lynne Kauffman November 9, 2011 at 10:38 pm

Just found your site and love it (Pinterest). I am eager to begin breadmaking and wanted to know what your fav brands of flour are. Also, fav brand of yeast for the bread machine. Thanks!


FlyMama October 26, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Thanks for keeping such a terrific blog! I found you while looking for ways to turn my homemade yogurt into greek yogurt months ago. Your blog convinced me to invest in a bread machine and it has proved to be one of my best investments. Many of your bread recipes are now staples in my house. I just made your caramelized nuts and they were a huge hit. Thanks so much and keep it coming!


CountryGirl October 7, 2011 at 4:15 am

Where is the recipe for smoked sundried tomatoes? I LOVE this place!!


liz t July 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm

I just discovered your blog from and I love it!! love the recipes and the commentary that goes along with them..keep up the amazing work


Der February 12, 2011 at 7:29 am

I just enjoyed looking through your recipe list….wow, that is a lot of yummy food!!!
I was thinking about the brownies at the extra special (and delicious) dinner after Granddad’s service. I believe Ann Hastings made the nut-free brownies. They tasted like my favorite brownies from Earl of Sandwich. I would love for you to post that recipe (or just email it to me.) Thanks and keep up the beautiful work!!!!


Jody L. Cahill February 9, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Hi! Just need to let you know 2 things. First, I have been putting lettuce, all veggies, & just about anything I purchase anymore into mason jars & vac-sealing them. I have been doing that for quite a while. Everything lasts sooooo much longer. I use 2 qt. jars quite a bit & just ordered some more the other day b/c you can’t find them anyplace! I actually ordered them thru Ace Hardware & they get del’d to the nearest store, so I don’t need to pay for shipping. When I go that way for other errands I will pick them up. Secondly, I am fairly new to greek yogurt & try to eat it when I can. Since I have about 5 2-qt. jars filled w/salad (they were on sale) I wanted to use a more healthier dressing. I have been going to Weight Watchers so need to be careful. That is how I came across your site last night. I mixed up the Greek yogurt – Balsamic recipe & have eaten it the last 2 nights. Great idea, love it! But was so excited to see you were using the mason jars also. I will def. add you to my ‘Favorites’ list. See ya…


Paula February 10, 2011 at 6:29 am

Hi Jody, Sounds like another vacuum-packin’ sister. I don’t put veggies in mine but a lot of people ask me about it. If you have any hints regarding the extras, I would love to see a comment about it on the salad-in-a-jar post so I can refer people to it.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to post more salad dressing recipes even though they aren’t very glamorous. Stay tuned.

Thanks for writing. paula


Paula November 29, 2010 at 5:35 am

Hi Anny, I fixed the link for Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf. Thanks so much for the heads-up.

I come from Lucerne, Indiana but you probably never heard of it. Close to Logansport which is about 50 miles from Lafayette.

Funny that you mention persimmons. My husband and I were at Whole Foods on Saturday and saw some persimmons. He thought they were funny looking tomatoes. I have never tasted them. Now I think I will have to buy some and try them. Do you have a favorite receipe for persimmon pudding?


Anny November 29, 2010 at 4:17 am

Hello, Paula–
Wonderful selection of recipes. Thanks for providing
such a wealth of yummy eats and helpful information.
(But when I try to click “Blackened Meatloaf” from the
index, I get Derinda’s great coffeecake . . . a fun main course!)
On my first visit here, and enjoying the prospect of
exploring more great stuff on your site.

PS Where in Hoosierland do you hail from? I’m too far
north to grow persimmon trees (for pudding at Thanksgiving),
and I miss them!


Sis August 19, 2010 at 1:04 pm

Was amazed when I looked at your index. Doesn’t seem possible that you have done that many recipes already. Way to go –


Morgan July 25, 2010 at 1:57 pm

would like to see some crab artichoke dip


Paula July 25, 2010 at 2:56 pm

Morgan, that sounds yummy. Will work on it.


Sara Ann November 16, 2009 at 4:47 pm

Hey, Paula,

I’m doing Thanksgiving here on the west coast this year with friends and I offered to bring a pie. I was trying to think what kind I wanted to make and I remembered the heavenly pecan pie of yours I had once at a PR shower. I remember there was chocolate drizzled on the top, or maybe just on the crust, but either way it was fantastic. Do you know the one I’m talking about? I would love the recipe.
