Absolutely delicious! This old fashioned dessert never fails to please. Being a very very old recipe, one has to keep in mind that todays rhubarb is so much sweeter, you may wish to cut the sugar back to one cup or possibly one and a quarter cups ... depending on just how much sweetness you prefer.
It took me two years to track down this recipe after it appeared at our ladies Curling Bonspiel Potluck! Since then it became a favorite not only at potlucks but at our house as well. An old fashioned comfort food enjoyed by adults and children alike. Great served with a green salad and crusty bread. This is the original recipe but you may add extra seasonings of your choice if you wish. Servings depend on just how hungry the crowd! Note - Have added the optional can of tomato soup mentioned in the instructions to the ingredient list. I always add the can of tomato soup for added flavor and extra creaminess.
A Saskatchewan Roughrider recipe that never fails to please. Surprisingly this ketchup based sauce empties long before the other offerings and always an empty platter. So simple ... so good! I love this sauce using our Canadian Diva's Recipe#58094. Recipe courtesy of Tom Whitehouse. Use freshly prepared meatballs or prepared frozen. These can be made and ready to use at a moments notice!
A delicious rosemary and orange flavored roast chicken that is a big hit with family and friends. Recipe works equally well with chicken pieces. As with the whole chicken baking time will vary as to the size of the chicken, with the pieces needing less baking time. This one will get you oohs and aahs before they have that first bite!
This recipe is an oldie but goodie and enjoyed by children and adults alike. This is an excellent 'make ahead' to have prepared and ready to heat when you know your B.B.Q. will be filled with adult fare. Make extra because you'll find the youngsters will have to share these burgers with the adults ...they can't resist despite the adult choices on the menu!
(September 2010 update below) This recipe was passed to me as an easy to work with no fail pastry that has made doing pastry easy and fun. Originally from a segment on Madam Benoit's cooking show - a recipe that wowed and was quickly passed around. She is right - it is a wonderful no fail pastry that makes for great tasting pies, as well as being freezer friendly. Recipe POSTED April 2004 - UPDATE Sept. 26, 2010 - am very familiar with the no fail recipe using vinegar and egg which was one often made by my mom - and one of Madame Benoits. It is also found on the back of the Tenderflake box. Another of her pastry recipes is her LEMON TANG PASTRY- and yes it does call for three tablespoons of Lemon juice. I am a Madame Benoit fan and this Lemon Tang Pastry is not mine - it is hers - and in my books an absolute winner ( Madame Benoit was a great cooking show host from way back - a Canadian cooking Institution by herself. She attended the Cordon Bleu in Paris and went on to become the famous Madame Benoit) It's a big recipe and if you are only making one pie, taking a few extra minutes to roll out shells for the freezer makes for having those pastry shells on hand for those unexpected moments when needing a special dessert. Works for me! Easily halved as well as very freezer friendly.
This delicious slice is a favorite at our Church gatherings and potlucks. A great 'bake and take' recipe. This recipe was shared and has made many a coffee and dessert time special for family and friends. The first time making I was a little intimidated, but don't be ... it is easily put together and a snap to make, if taking to a potluck expect no left overs to take back home!
This recipe was passed along many years back and has been the recipe I have used for carrot loaves ever since. By adding an additional cup of mixed glaced fruit it makes for a special holiday loaf come Christmas. If adding the additional fruit you may need to add approximately ten to fifteen minutes to the baking time. Icing with your favorite cream cheese icing adds to this delicious loaf. I also use this recipe to make Christmas Muffins - using holiday muffin cup liners. Before baking I press a cherry in the centre and make petals by using 5 blanched almonds (pointy end to cherry) Makes for great presentation. Served in a footed server with the glass dome lid has you getting raves before they take their first bite!
This delightful punch was served along with a lovely assortment of fresh fruit at an afternoon function I attended this past summer. Much to my surprise this was a recipe I had overlooked in one of our community cookbooks 'A Taste Of Heaven' The unusual combination of ingredients makes for a real winner that tastes as good as it looks. For those special occasions set up a serving station with a lovely white tablecloth along with your favorite punch bowl and glasses - you will have your guests oohing and aahing before they take their first sip.
There are many combinations for Cauliflower Salads, this particular version is the favorite in our area. A delicious make ahead, perfect for potlucks and family gatherings. Great salad to add to the holiday table. For those special occasions I serve this in a cut glass bowl ... making it look as good as it tastes. I have been known to add slivered almonds to make for extra crunch! This salad requires at least eight hours mellowing time ... best made the night before ... that is a big plus when you are cooking for a crowd!
Great for family gatherings, pot lucks, or any time you are expecting a crowd. This looks terrific served in a cut glass bowl. There just are no leftovers with this one! This requires overnight marinating.
A great 'make ahead' salad to have on hand when expecting family and friends for the weekend. This is one of our favorites and most salad lovers request the recipe. Be sure to refrigerate preferably in a covered jar which I find keeps it crisp and fresh. Only the salad itself goes into the serving bowl - the marinade remains in the jar. Using one of your special glass bowls adds to the presentation.
This was my grandma's favorite waffle recipe. It has become a family favorite enjoyed on special occasions not only by her grandchildren but great-great grandchildren as well. The clipping is yellow with age clipped I suspect from the local daily paper many many years ago.
