Apple Coffee Cake

1 egg  /  2/3 cup water or milk  /  1 cup finely chopped apple



¼ cup sugar  /  2 tablespoons Bisquick® baking mix
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter or margarine ~ firm
(This is the regular recipe;

I actually make 1½ times this amount of topping.)

Heat oven to 400
°.  Grease round layer pan, 9 x 1-1/2 inches, or square pan, 8 x 8 x 2 inches. 
Mix all topping ingredients until crumbly, and then drop onto cake batter.  Mix first four batter ingredients and beat vigorously for 30 seconds.  Then mix in apple.  Spread batter in pan; sprinkle with topping.  Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 - 25 minutes. Refrigerate any remaining coffee cake.

Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute.  Stir in rice, ham, carrots, almonds and salt; simmer about 5 minutes.  Blend in half and half and sherry; heat to serving temperature.  Garnish with minced parsley or chives.

Charlie Rosenzweig, his friend of many years)



Cheese-Garlic Biscuits

(Okay, so they don't look exactly like this, but you get the basic idea!)


Make up your favorite plain drop biscuit recipe. I use the one on the Bisquick box, which is:


2 cups of Bisquick and  2/3 cup of water or milk


Before combining these ingredients, add 1/2 cup of grated cheese (more if you like it cheesier), and then mix everything.  (If the dough is not moist enough to mix and drop easily, add a bit more liquid.)  Bake at 400° for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown on top. 


While the biscuits are baking, melt 1/4 cup of margarine or butter (I do it in a small glass custard-type bowl in the microwave) and squeeze 1 clove of fresh garlic into that and mix.  After biscuits have been out of the oven for about 5 minutes (to give them a little time to set), drizzle the butter-garlic mixture over the tops of each biscuit using a pastry brush.  (If you don't have one, you can use a spoon, but it's not as easy to get it evenly spread.)



Sensational Spuds



Potatoes boiled with 2 bay leaves

(but not mushy;  peel and slice)

Put into greased baking dish.

1½ c. sour cream

1/4 c. melted margarine

1/4 c. minced onion   /   1½ t. salt

1½ c. grated cheese


Bake at 350° for 35 minutes, covered or uncovered.



½ c. crushed potato chips  /  ½ c. grated cheese


Bake 5-10 minutes more.  Mmmmm, delicious!!!
