    setting up a taco bar.

    I am serving both hard and soft.  The tortilla keepers do not look like they would hold very many.  Do you have any idea how many they hold. We are talking 200-300 tortillas.  I might just have to figure a way to warm some more after the first ones are getting low. So you think this is a better...

    setting up a taco bar.

    Ok I have read many ways of doing this.  However I am  still unsure of how to do the tortillas.  How can I keep warm tortillas for 100 people.  Could I heat them in foil stacks and then put them in an electric roaster ? The corn tortillas I have baked and then kept warm in a roaster, but I have...

    transporting Cheesy potatoes and baked beans

    Beans are home made with dry beans. And actually after you gave the idea of the coolers at first, I thought about smaller pans after I responded to you. So it sounds like making everything totally before I leave is the general thought. Thanks to both of you.

    Apple Crisp

    Exactly what I thought, but she said the apples stay more stable and do not get watery  the next day.  I hate mushy applecrisp and would always choose it over applepie

    Apple Crisp

    Just curious.  I have always made my applecrisp the way my gran did.  Today a friend of mine asked me if I had ever tried precooking my apples in a cornstarch mixture.  She said it made for a more stable flavorfull applecrisp.  She has not had mine.  So what do you think?  Does the cornstarch...

    transporting Cheesy potatoes and baked beans

    Mary, I assume you mean put the crockpot of beans in the cooler. However the potatoes will be in an electric roaster, which is way to big for the cooler.  So with the potatoes, If I started them at home, then unplugged and drove 45 minutes and plugged them back in .  Would that be ok, safe?  Or...

    Peanut Butter Brownie cheesecake

    Oh I totally agree.  It was a request from my 17 year old grandson for his birthday.  It is tradition in our family for grandma to make a cheesecake of choice for birthdays instead of traditional cake.  Over 30 years we have had a lot of different ones.  My favorites are still plain or one with...

    Buffalo chicken dip

    Ok I have seen many variations to this recipe.  For those of you who have had it, do you like it better layered or mixed all up. I am going to go with the most popular. Basically it is chicken, hot sauce, cream cheese, ranch  or blue cheese dressing and cheddar cheese.
