Your Favorite Store-Brand Recipes....Made at Home!!

Lunch & Dinner Helpers
King's Hawaiian Bread....our kids' favorite kind of bread!
  • 6 cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teas. ginger
  • 1 teas. vanilla
  • 2 pkg. yeast
  • 1 stick margarine
  1. Beat eggs; add pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanilla and melted margarine. 
  2. Put 3 cups flour in a large mixing bowl. Add egg mixture and stir until well mixed. Sprinkle in yeast, 1 package at a time, mixing well. 
  3. Gradually add other 3 cups flour. Batter will be hard to mix with spoon. You may have to use your hand. Make sure it's mixed well. Leave batter in bowl and cover with cloth and place in warm place.
  4. Let rise 1 hour. Remove from bowl and knead in 1/2 cup flour.
  5. Knead about 10 times. Divide into 3 equal parts and place in well greased round cake pans. Cover and place in warm place and let rise about 1 hour. 
  6. Bake at 350 degrees 25 to 30 minutes.
Papa John's Garlic more fighting over the little tub of sauce!
  • 1/4 − 1/2 stick margarine
  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Melt butter in the microwave (about 30 seconds).
  2. Put in salt and garlic powder (to taste).
  3. Microwave for 5 seconds longer.
Hooter's Buffalo Chicken Wings....because everyone goes for the wings, right?
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • dash ground pepper
  • dash garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup all−purpose flour
  • 1/4 teas. paprika
  • 1/4 teas. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teas. salt
  • 10 chicken wing pieces
  • vegetable oil for frying
  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375. You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely; an inch or so deep at least.
  2. Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well−blended.
  3. Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. If the wings are frozen, be sure to defrost and dry them. Put the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly. Put the wings in the refrigerator 60−90 minutes. This will help the breading to stick to the wings when fried.
  5. Put all the wings in the hot oil and fry 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown. Remove from the oil to a paper towel to drain. Don't let them sit too long, because you want to serve them hot. Quickly put the wings in a large bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir, coating all of the wings evenly.
  6. Serve with bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side.

For the Sweet Tooth
Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping....dresses up your ice cream!
  • 6 ounce package chocolate chips
  • 1/2 stick butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  1. Melt chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler.
  2. Add oil and mix in well. When dipped into, or spooned over ice cream it will create a hard chocolate shell.
Nutter Butter Cookies....the most-sought-after treat in our family's cupboard.
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup old−fashioned Quaker oats
  • 1 cup all−purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fine graham cracker crumbs
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. 
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar with an electric mixer. 
  3. Add the egg, salt, and peanut butter and beat until well blended.
  4. Put the oats in a blender and blend on medium speed until they are almost as finely ground as flour.
  5. Add the oats and flour to the mixture and blend well.
  6. Pinch out small portions of dough and roll into 1−inch balls in the palm of your hand. Press these flat on ungreased cookie sheets so that they form 2−inch circles. If you're a stickler for a cookie that looks just like the original, you can form the dough into flat peanut shapes.
  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light brown around the edges. 
  8. While the cookies bake, combine the filling ingredients in a small bowl. 
  9. When the cookies are cool, use a butter knife to spread a thin layer of filling on the flat side of a cookie and press another on top. Repeat. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
