Brenda Rudd Fluffy Chocolate Pancakes As a change from conventional pancakes, these Fluffy Chocolate Pancakes would be a nice treat for Mother's Day. This recipe adds a chocolate twist to the favorite classic pancake. It produces light, airy pancakes that get their flavor from unsweetened cocoa powder. Baking with cocoa powder saves time because it eliminates pre-melting steps required with other chocolate baking products. Top the pancakes with whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries for a luscious combination that would make an appealing centerpiece for a Mother's Day celebration breakfast. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup cocoa 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup buttermilk 1 egg, beaten 3 tablespoons vegetable oil Whipped topping Fresh strawberries, sliced Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl. Combine buttermilk, egg and oil in separate bowl; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto preheated, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side, turning to cook second side when pancakes have a bubbly surface. Serve warm with whipped topping and strawberries, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 pancakes. Acquired recipe from Hershey Foods.

Brenda Rudd Music and songs have been my lifelong friends. They have accompanied me through my childhood and past the rocky years of adolescence. They have helped me express my love and provided solace in times of grief. If I was in a silly mood, there was a song to express it; if there was a time of deep spiritual reflection, a song framed it in my mind. When I think of favorite songs back in the "Good Old Days", I have a specific one that floods my mind. "In a vine-covered shack in the mountain, Bravely fighting the battle of time Is a dear one who's weathered life's sorrows, 'Tis that silver-haired Daddy of mine. If I could recall all the heartaches, Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear, If I could erase those lines on your face And bring back the gold to your hair, If God would grant me the power, Just to turn back the pages of time. I'd give all I own if I could but atone, To that silver-haired Daddy of mine. I know it's too late, dear old Daddy, To repay for the sorrow and care But dear Mother is waiting in Heaven Just to comfort and solace you there. *I have heard my Father sing this song so many times...but never understood the true depth and implication until he passed away June 12, 2001.

Brenda Rudd Our Mother use to make this salad. Traditional Southern style was whatever fresh fruit that you might have: apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, chopped into bite size and then a can of fruit cocktail (added to keep fruit from turning brown), and coconut-then chill. Another version is just oranges, coconut, & powdered sugar. Ingredients: 1 pkg. Philly creme cheese 1 pint of whipping cream (the real stuff) 1 c. coconut 1 can mixed fruit cocktail 1 small can marachino cherries Directions: Whip up the whipping cream nice and stiff, but frothy; soften and then blend in the cream cheese; turn in the coconut; add the fruit cocktail and marachino cherries. Put in the refrigerator overnight. Serve with dinner dessert the next day

Brenda Rudd I came across a recipe book from Dow City, Iowa, published in 1910. There are a few recipes from Rudd ancestors...so I thought I would pass them on. {They sure sound good, don"t they? Guess they didn"t think about fat grams and cholesterol back then!} Ingredients: potatoes [7] small or large in size milk, a pint onions, [3] small salt and pepper crackers, 1/2 dozen butter, size of egg Directions: Use the potato water from the potatoes you cook for dinner. Mash 3 large or small potatoes fine and add the potato water, a pint of milk or cream, 3 small onions, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 doz. crackers, and butter size of an egg. Let all boil together 7 minutes.

Brenda Rudd Old Fashioned Blackberry Cobbler For biscuit dough: 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 2 TBL sugar 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 5 TBL cold butter, cut in small pieces 1/2 cup milk Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut butter into mixture using two knifes or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add in milk and mix only until dough binds together. Gently knead a few times to bring all dough together and dust with flour. Roll or pat out dough to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes, strips for lattice, or roll into small, slightly flattened balls to be placed on top of fruit. For fruit: 3 pints blackberries 1/2 to 1 cup sugar 2 TBL cornstarch 1 tsp grated lime zest Wash and pat dry berries. Combine sugar, cornstarch and lime zest and mix into berries. Assembly: Preheat oven to 375F. Spread fruit mixture evenly in baking dish. Cover, as desired, with biscuit mixture. Brush with sugar glaze or sprinkle top with additional sugar. Bake until the top is golden brown and the fruit juices are slightly thickened, about 45-50 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving, and serve with whipped cream, chilled heavy cream, or ice cream. *My mother always made this cobbler for my father after he went berry pickin' for wild blackberries.
