    My mom's favorite pie cookbook is the old Farm Journal's "Complete Pie Cookbook" from 1965… and her copy is well-used and loved, full of clippings and hand-written notes. This recipe is based on the one from there, with modifications to her taste. Simple, easy, and delicious, it's a favorite on the mornings after Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    Recipe #202022

    This is one of those weird but wonderful comfort foods from my childhood. You wouldn't believe how delicious it is!! Although sometimes I make it without the bacon, I really do prefer it with...

    Recipe #105236

    A tasty change from plain meatballs! This recipe came from my Mom.

    Recipe #52727

    My husband Steingrim makes this fabulous fruit and nut cake every year for the holidays, and it's one fruit cake that you won't find people using for a door stop! No, our family members tussle over pieces of this stuff. :) The cake originates from Siena, in the Tuscan region of Italy, where it is very popular and is exported to many countries. It is a perfect accompaniment to after-dinner coffee.

    Recipe #46592

    My husband Mike makes these fabulous flat (no-flour) Italian cookies every year for the holidays, and they're absolutely heavenly! These cookies are an excellent addition to food gifts, as they will keep for a long time. Silpat baking sheets are very helpful when making these little gems.

    Recipe #46593

    So easy it's almost ridiculous! :) These chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds are a great addition to the holiday season, and the kids will like helping to make them.

    Recipe #45549

    My mix is based on a recipe that my childhood best friend's mother, Mrs. Harper, had for Chex Mix. It became an annual ritual for me to call her to ask for the recipe yet again. :) This mix is so very, very yummy and decadent! Good thing I only make it once a year...

    Recipe #49543

    My friend Gene here in the Puget Sound (who also happens to be my ex) made a wonderfully delicious King salmon recently, and I pried this rub recipe out of him. ;) All the amounts are approximate... he adds necessary amounts by aroma.

    Recipe #123137

    This is a combination of both my husband's and my mother's excellent recipes, and has a wonderful sauce for oodles of noodles or cooked rice. The secret of the "velvety beef" is in the preparation of the meat! :) The texture is quite a bit different from what you might be used to, so you might want to try it both ways. In any case, the stroganoff is delicious either with or without the special meat preparation. Enjoy!

    Recipe #27204

    For me, this is the ultimate in comfort foods from my childhood. :) I fix this often, usually for lunch, accompanied with a bowl of soup. (LJ entry Monday, January 28th, 2002.)

    Recipe #27443

    This is the astoundingly good dressing that we use on our reuben sandwiches and in shrimp cocktail. Others have told me that they make it just to use as a dip, and - coming from my description in our Reuben Sandwiches Our Way (recipe # 107927): "you can call it Thousand Island or French, whathaveyou" - keep it on their table and call it What-Have-You Sauce. Thank you for the tribute! :)

    Recipe #114916

    Way back when, in the depths of college days history when overindulgent weekend drinking was just a 20-something No Big Deal, my then-husband husband Gene and I watched a movie called "Moon Over Parador" and thought it was one of the funniest things we'd ever seen. Of course, I believe we'd been imbibing quite a bit o' beer so our judgment might've been a little off. (I still think the movie is pretty funny, though.) In the movie, the dictator of a tiny little country called Parador indulges in a drink called a "puna," which is never really described. "Too many damn punas," and the dictator kicks the bucket, and Richard Dreyfus' character, an actor who does too good an impression of the departed, has to take his place while the corrupt political cronies figure out what to do next. Anyhow, we thought it'd be fun to create the puna. What we came up with was pretty darn tasty, and was a hit on those binge weekends of old. I don't remember the exact recipe, and we made it in volume, but here's an approximate single serving. Delicious! :)

    Recipe #27227

    Sometimes we forget to write down our everyday, simple recipes. :) I figured I might as well get our family's tacos down. This is a combination of how Mom made them when I grew up and how we fix them these days with husband's and my updated tastes. It's also a Pantry Challenge recipe, made with items I already had at home

    Recipe #107538

    This is my husband's favorite lasagna recipe, from a cookbook he had before we were married. Today when asking him what he wanted for dinner we went on a kitchen foray to figure out what we'd make, and he came up with lasagna. "But my favorite recipe is pretty complicated, so I don't know if we really want to do that one." We got out the old book, looked at it, and... it's amusing, because the recipe is prior to our marriage he thought of it as difficult (he was a good bachelor cook, mind you), but in these days after several more years of cooking added to his experience, it's not too difficult at all. :) Anyhow, here it is, tweaked to our liking. Although long, it's not really that difficult and the rich and delicious end results are well worth the time. Steingrim says he likes to make the meat and cheese sauces the day before, then assemble the lasagna with less trouble the next day.

    Recipe #114671

    The Shield's Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg opened in the 1740s and was a familiar gathering spot for burgesses, travelers, and townspeople. This recipe for herb dressing from a flier my mother received at Williamsburg is a favorite in our house! Cook time includes chilling.

    Recipe #81901

    My husband loves cooking with lime, and here's a recipe we've recently been experimenting with - very tasty! :)

    Recipe #29130

    I've made these several times, and they're quite tasty! You can either use your own cooked polenta or commercially packaged cooked polenta, whichever you prefer.

    Recipe #99213

    My husband recently made this dish for a Scandinavian potluck. As strange a combination as it sounds, it's very tasty and was gobbled up by everybody at the event. Give it a try! This recipe is based on one from an excellent cookbook called "Eat the Norway," where they say: "Should you be invited to an informal evening get-together in Norway - sewing club, bridge party or the like - you may well be served this dish, particularly in late summer when Norwegian cauliflower is at its best."

    Recipe #102850

    This is what we have at Christmastime with our steamed puddings. :)

    Recipe #48895

    This warm sauce goes wonderfully well over bratwurst, kielbasa, smoked sausage, grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, or even plain old hot dogs.
