    From a local community cookbook; family favorite,

    Recipe #29764

    This recipe comes from the 1967 Better Homes and Gardens 'so good with FRUIT' cookbook. The small meat loaves make a great presentation when served! I prefer using brown rice in this recipe.

    DH says "It's Good" (and it is). Good hot or cold. from Canadian Diabetes Association

    Recipe #22231

    We always called this "Salisbury Steak", but it does not have tomatoes. Comfort food at it's best...

    Recipe #98844

    these are terrific..came from an Amish cookbook...

    Recipe #135663

    I use chili sauce or salsa instead of ketchup to give a nice contrast to the sweetness of the brown sugar. A lighter version can be made using Splenda brown sugar blend, skim milk, and Egg Beaters. Got this one from the AllRecipes website. It's one of their most popular recipes.

    Recipe #38641

    If your prepared alfredo sauce already has garlic in it, then omit the garlic powder. Prep time does not include baking the potatoes. This recipe may be doubled if desired. My Alfredo sauce #164953 works great with this recipe!

    Recipe #166427

    I got so tired of crowding the table with toppings for baked potatoes that I decided to premix them, using our favorites. The "fat-ness" of the sour cream, butter/margarine & cheese can vary according to my whim. Use herbed sour cream dips to suit your fancy. This is my one-handed response to "please pass me the sour cream, butter, cheese, chives and bacon bits" while I continue eating with the other hand. ;-)

    Recipe #205671

    A delicious dessert, especially served warm with ice cream. I really love the almond filling and the berry combination.

    Recipe #207675

    Adapted from a recipe by Top Secret Recipes,, this is enjoyed by many, many people! You can make this recipe go alot faster by using already frozen storebought mac and cheese(reccomeded Stouffers-from the frozen dept. of the grocery store-pick up recipe after freezing directions)I have played around with this a little. Hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #207418

    This is one of my family's favorite "comfort foods". I took it to a sick friend once who also "hates tuna casseroles". He thought it was chicken. :) Try it, I think you'll want it as a keeper!

    Recipe #87076

    This casserole was first served to me 30+ years ago by my sis in law Kathy. It is a real good fast recipe as you can have this done in less than 40 minutes. Kids love this--adults too. It is perfect for busy moms on days when you have to run the kids here and there. Only 4 ingredients and super easy to put together. The 6 ounces of ham is Hormel chunk ham in the can like tuna comes in. The thing would not accept 1 can of Hormel chunk ham no matter how hard I tried.

    Recipe #187440

    Lifted off another recipe website (can't remember which one) when I was looking for low-fat recipes to make. It involves many of my favorite things all together in one dish.

    Recipe #172580

    **Adopted Recipe**

    Recipe #4910

    Anytime I go to a party or picnic, this dessert loaf is always requested. I took 8 mini-loaves to my husband's office Thanksgiving dinner and one of his partners took home four of them! This recipe came from my friend, who got it from her aunt. I entered '2 loaves' for number of servings. I hope that's right; I usually use mini-loaf pans. This is a very moist bread!! Do not overcook.

    Recipe #130011

    The recipe was created for our local Friday night football concessions. I hope you enjoy it. We sell our sandwiches for $1.50 each.

    A really simple casserole that my family loves. It tastes like lasagna but is half the work. It makes alot, so I usually divide it into 3 dishes and freeze two. A real kid-pleaser.

    Recipe #185633

    My daughter's favorite meal and my husband's third favorite. Very tasty, tender and different from other steak recipes. This is a made-up recipe by me.

    Recipe #199794

    The only way I will make chicken and dumplings, this is the easiest! You can also use those frozen "flat" dumplings instead of canned biscuits.

    Recipe #168507

    After trying several different recipes for lasagna, and combining the best of the best, I think I found the best combination yet. I will admit that this is not for the faint of heart; this is a very hearty dish. *At the suggestion of a fellow Zaarian, use regular lasagna noodles (not the no boil type).
