2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup room temperature milk
1 room temperature egg
1 (28 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1. Melt butter in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
2. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder & salt.
3. Stir in milk & egg.
4. Pour evenly over melted butter.
5. Combine peaches, sugar & spices and spread over batter-DO NOT STIR!
6. Bake 35-45 minutes at 350°F until batter comes to the top and is golden brown.
7. Serve warm with ice cream.
When I ask Jon what he wants for dinner, this is a common request. I guess it is like a Philly cheese steak, but my version. I hope your husbands like it as much as mine does.
All the these ingredients can be increased or decreased according to your taste
1 lb. Hamburger
1 Large Onion (cut in spears)
1 Bell Peppers (cut in spears)
Brown hamburger. While cooking, sprinkle with garlic salt and italian seasoning. Drain grease and add veggies and cook till soft, adding more garlic salt and seasoning as needed. After they are soft add cheese to the top and cover, so that it can melt. Serve over buns. My favorite are hamburger buns from the bakery. Hoagie buns and french bread work good too.
*Make it even better: Make your buns Garlic Bread*
While meat and veggies are cooking butter both sides of the bun and sprinkle it with garlic salt and italian seasoning. Put it in the oven at 350, until it is barely golden.
We had this the other night with garden fresh tomatoes and corn. Jon is still telling me how great it was...............3 days later.

Allow crust to cool slightly. While its still warm, spread 1 1/2 cups PEANUT BUTTER over the top. Cool completely. While that is cooling, make the frosting. Frosting should be thick but still able to spread. Once cooled, spread on Chocolate frosting.

I saw something similar to this on Rachel Ray and modified it to fit my family's tastes. It's a variation on lasagna that eliminates working with noodles (my least favorite and most time consuming part).
1 lb ground beef
16 oz ricotta cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 large can tomato sauce (or marinara sauce)
8 kaiser rolls (or any roll large enough to scoop out the inside and fill)
Brown the ground beef in a pan. Drain the grease and add tomato sauce. I added some salt, pepper, and garlic powder, but you can throw in whatever you want. In a separate mixing bowl beat the eggs. Add ricotta and mozzarella cheeses. Cut tops off rolls and scoop out the inside. You can save the bread for bread crumbs, or eat it as an appetizer while you cook (like I do). Fill the rolls halfway with meat mixture, then the rest of the way with cheese mixture. Replace tops on rolls and wrap each roll in tin foil. Place wrapped rolls on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 for an hour.
I served them with ranch as a dipping sauce, but that's just because we eat EVERYTHING with ranch.
Here's the link to Rachel Ray's recipe if you'd like to try her variation.

1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 can evaporated milk (I use the fat free skim kind)
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garam masala
Cooking Spray (I like the olive oil spray)
2 tablespoons curry powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt half of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook slowly until the onion caramelizes to a dark brown, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat along with the tomato sauce, evaporated milk, flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and garam masala. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then stir in caramelized onions.
While the sauce is simmering, spray baking sheet with cooking spray and spread chicken peices out onto a baking sheet, then sprinkle with curry powder.
Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 12 minutes. Once done, add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes before serving.

First, the story:
I make these for my daughter and apparently it's THE way pancakes are supposed to taste. She stayed the night at my mother's house last summer and in the morning she told Grandma that she wanted pancakes for breakfast. My mom pulled out her best store bought mix and fixed some for her. She took one bite and said that they didn't taste right and refused to eat any more. So, later on the drive home she told me that Grandma didn't make the pancakes right. I told her that Grandma made her's from a mix and I make them from scratch, so they taste different. This answer seemed to satisfy her, but after a little thought a small voice from the back seat said, "But our pancakes are not scratchy." Thus, the name was born.
The "Daddy Syrup" story is shorter. Our daddy makes syrup at home and it's better than store bought...it's a little runny, but the flavor is awesome. Anyway, one day she told me she wanted pancakes for breakfast and wondered if I had Daddy Syrup or the Pantry Syrup. I just thought it was funny that she called them that with no prompting or anything.
Sorry, this was long.....
1 1/4 cups flour (can be white or wheat)
1 Tbsp. (or 3 tsp.) Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbsp. oil
Mix dry ingredients together. Add egg and liquid. Mix to a smooth batter and cook on a hot surface. This will make 10-12 pancakes and they are best on the first day, but the batter can be stored in the fridge.
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. Mapeline (imitation maple flavoring)
1 tsp. Imitation vanilla
Add sugar, water, Mapeline, and vanilla to saucepan. Bring the water/sugar mixture to a full boil. Watch it so it doesn’t boil over. Make sure the sugar dissolves, but doesn't burn! Makes 2 1/4 cups.

Just for fun I thought I would have a little vote for a new background. They come from two different sights so the format is different but hopefully you can get a pretty good idea. Until then I thought I would give you all a little eye candy. (Actually, I saw this template and thought that it would really hurt Clay's feeling if it were never used. So I had to.)
