Lemon Pie

This is one of the most simple pies you can make for your family or guests. Mix 8 oz of cream cheese, one third cup lemon juice and 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk. Pour it in a graham cracker crust and chill in the refrigerator. That's it. Yum yum.

If you don't want to mix any ingredients, you can just buy lemon filling from the store and pour it in the graham cracker crust. Lemon pies are easy peasy.

Corn Starch is Gluten Free

Cornstarch is gluten free, so if you are looking for a sauce, soup or gravy thickener, corn starch is the ticket. It needs to be added while the liquid is cool and will dissolve and thicken as the mixture is heated. Cornstarch is clear unlike flour, so you should not see any change in color of your soups.

Egg Fried Rice

Cook 2 cups of rice, whichever style of rice you choose, and put in fridge. You want to use cold rice when making fried rice. Scramble 8 eggs and set to the side. Heat up a large enough skillet to hold twice the amount of rice you have. Get the skillet very hot. Coat it with sesame oil. Dice up about 6-7 green onions and throw them in the skillet until they are brown. Dump in the rice and some soy sauce and mix. Dump in the eggs and a little more soy sauce and mix. It only takes about 2 minutes in this hot skillet after you dump the rice and eggs in to be ready. ENJOY!!!!

Rabbit and Dumplings

This is a family favorite for dinner and it tastes better the following days reheated.

Boil 2 rabbits for 2 1/2 hours and pick the meat off of the bones.
Place the meat back into the broth from boiling and add a can of chicken broth.

Making Dumplings :
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons of shortening
3/4 cup milk
Mix ingredients good and either roll them out and cut into dumpling strips or create dumpling balls. However you want to do it.

Place the dumplings in and cook on LOW until dumplings are cooked through. Usually 1 1/2 hours.
Serve and enjoy.
