Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either!…

Baked Fried Chicken

Poppy-Seed Cake with Chocolate Frosting

I needed a non-dairy (parve) poppy-seed cake recipe for dinner on Friday night. They aren’t that easy to find. I have a poppyseed chiffon cake recipe I will post sometime, but that is not want I wanted to have now. I found a recipe that was easy to adapt.
