These snickerdoodle cookies are so delicious, and they have the best texture. They are so fast to put together too! I actually got it from an old recipe that my Great Grandma had clipped out of a newspaper. Grandma always knows best!
This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!
Let your family members or guests eat some of this before asking if they know what it contains!!! The title tells it all. It is surprisingly good...and a fun thing to do, especially with children. Serve warm with ice cream or a cheese wedge.
Mom used the recipe straight off the box of the Quaker Oatmeal canister. This has always been extra special because of the warm thoughts it brings to me of my Aunt Marshee who worked at the Quaker Oatmeal plant as an executive assistant for most of her professional career.
This is a recipe my mother gave me. It was typical of the types of cakes baked during the war when shortages and rationing was in effect. It is moist and delicious. Mother always made it at Christmas time and we thought it was a real treat. Posted in response to a request.
This was one of Dad's favorites, plus it felt special whenever mom made it because I didn't know of any other families who ate salmon. It was especially good when Mom added a little fat to the skillet to give a crispy golden brown crust to the patties.
Every family gathering included a relish tray filled with food that was never seen at any other time of the year. Pickled eggs, sweet Gherkin pickles, pimento stuffed olives, and even heart of palm. Most of this seemed to be enjoyed most by my great aunts, with the one exception of mom's deviled eggs. This is still a treat that I'll grab up lickety-split at any pot luck meal.
No pantry was complete without a supply of cream of chicken soup on hand for recipes such as this. For a generation of women just beginning to flood into the workplace, these quick fix recipes paved the way for Hamburger Helper and other "meal-in-a-box" solutions.
This might as well be titled, "Mom's Hodge-podge Home-made Hamburger Helper." Although I seldom cook with hamburger, this is a wonderful example of how mom taught us how to improvise, adapt, and experiment to the nth! This one's being added for posterity! The next time I pour in a cup of salsa because I'm out of tomatoes, I'll think of mom and blow her a kiss. MUAH!
