Unfortunately, I've lost most of my recipes that I did contribute to (which was mainly on the Manchester, Kentucky Forum) when the Topix forum closed so abruptly.
I do have a memory stick that I may still be able to recover some of my most precious gems passed down through generations that some posters may be interested in.
At least that is what I am hoping for.
In any event, I love your thread..

Thank You, PurpleLady (it's a worthwhile thread that I hope takes off)

Here is one that I have made so many times that I don't even have to look at the cookbook.
Overnight Chicken Casserole
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of chicken broth or broth from the cooked chicken.
1-7 oz. Box of uncooked elbow macaroni
1 to 2 green bell peppers
1 jar of pimentos.
1 medium onion chopped
I bag of peas
1 to 1.5 bags of cubed cheddar cheese.
Place all of above ingredients in a large greased casserole dish.
Refrigerate overnight
When ready to cook.
Preheat oven to 375.
Crumble Ritz crackers and pat with butter.
Cook for 30 to 35 minutes.
The beauty of this dish is you can add a variety of vegetables from asparagus to zucchini. But it is a great dish. And kids love it.

Bife ŗ Cavalo (Horseback-Riding Steak)
A traditional dish in both Brazil and Portugal, consisting of a grilled or sometimes deep-fried steak, with fried eggs on top.
 Prep Time 5 minutes
 Cook Time 10 minutes
 Total Time 15 minutes
 Servings 2
Ingredients
2 rib eye steaks 3/4-inch thick, 15-ounce
1 teaspoon salt divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper divided
1 tablespoon Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 fried eggs also known as sunny-side up eggs
1/4 cup small diced yellow onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley or cilantro
Instructions
Remove steaks from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes minutes prior to cooking. Season each steak on both sides with a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over high heat, melt the butter and stir in the oil. Cook the steaks for about 3-4 minutes per side (medium-rare to medium) or 5-6 minutes per side (medium-well to well done) and transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, cook the fried eggs in another frying pan.
Once steaks have been transferred to a plate, cook onions over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes in the same frying pan that the steaks were cooked in, utilizing the pan drippings, and stirring occasionally. Remove onions from the pan and place on top of the steaks. Top each steak with one fried egg and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley or cilantro on top. Serve immediately accompanied by fries or rice, beans, and a fresh salad. Enjoy!

You knew some of us posters would love this thread.
That's just one of the things that makes you a Great Mod.

You care about what interests another poster, and you make that happen.
That is just one of the qualities of Pete's chosen Mods.

Here's  a trick I learned.
Want to make a cake taste like homemade.
Substitute milk for water and the milk makes it tase like it is made from scratch and makes it moister.
