Delicious salad that tastes like the III Forks salad (if you live in the Dallas area). It's an excellent salad that everyone will love, and it's very easy to make!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 790
It's a great cookie, one of the kids' favorites. This doesn't call for nuts, but I sometimes add about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans.

Rich Mexican Corn

This recipe came from my step-mom in Dallas, Texas. They like it hot so they put in a few extra jalapenos.

This is nice and thick and yummy. Sour cream is also good on this.

Baked Chicken Reuben

This is a great make-ahead dish from Marcia C. Adams of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It took the top $10,000 prize in the National Chicken Cooking Contest in Dallas, Texas. It sounds weird, but it is good.

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad
Rating: 4.5 stars 149

I have been making this salad for years and recently traveled from NJ to Oklahoma to make a batch for one of my friends. I have also Overnighted this salad to a friend in Dallas who simply loves it. Of course, I pack it in dry ice. It's fast, simple and great for a cocktail party on party rye, on toast or a bagel for breakfast, on rye with lettuce, thinly sliced onions and dill (or sweet)pickles and mayo for lunch or with pea soup and sandwich for dinner. It's down right Yummy!!! And make no changes to the ingredients because the salad will not taste the same.
