    Mom's recipe shows how versatile stew was. The specifics called for? Beef; an assortment of winter vegetables of any amount - frozen or fresh; and for liquid..your choice of tomato juice, water or bullion. For the sake of the recipe program, I randomly picked exact measurements and lazily choose the frozen vegetable route. But if you keep reading you'll find mom's original directions, so relax and do whatever works.

    Recipe #410377

    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.

    Recipe #410961

    I found this recipe listed by a few others with the addition of butter, fresh sliced mushrooms, chopped onions and cooking sherry. This would certainly add a level of punch to the recipe, but mom's version again stresses the quick and easy aspect of our family dinners. Either way, this was good!

    Recipe #410966

    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!

    Recipe #411989

    There are a number of bean soup mixtures now on the market, with anywhere from 5 to 15 bean varieties. Any will work and all will taste better if the soup is allowed to sit until the second day.

    Recipe #413366

    This makes an easy recipe to serve company or a quick weeknight meal.

    Recipe #410960

    Notice that this recipe doesn't call for ANY spices...not even salt and pepper. Yet I have nothing but great memories for mom's ham hocks and beans. Other recipes include garlic, oregano, bay leaf and pepper. Give it a try with or without embellishments.

    Recipe #410607

    This is one of the two staple recipes I cook for company when I don't know what they like. It is simple and really easy. Everyone always enjoys it. I think it is called holdiay spaghetti because it is red and green but we make it all year round.

    Recipe #314907

    Ask any of mom's three girls and you'll get the same answer: No other meatloaf compares! The sweet and spicy brown sugar and mustard sauce has always set this apart as a favorite in our family.

    Recipe #410962

    I always keep slivered almonds and rice wine vinegar on hand in order to mix this version of a grilled chicken salad up fast and easy.

    Recipe #412631

    Fajitas from Primo's Mexican Restaurant were judged tops overall of the 12 restaurant entries in the Houston Restaurant Associations Fajita Meet in 1986. We were already fans of the restaurant, so when the Houston Chronicle printed the recipe, I clipped it and have been pulling out the yellowed copy ever since. Now that my daughter is heading out on her own, it's time to send the family treasure with her.

    Recipe #412630

    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.

    Recipe #410964

    I first found this in 2001 on an online site called Since then it's become our standard quick grill Salmon recipe.

    Recipe #412629

    I was a very, VERY picky eater growing up. This recipe may have started me on my path to gastronomical adventures.

    Recipe #410971

    Simple, quick and easy, and oh so good. I've found many other more elaborate recipes, but mom's no-nonsense style of cooking was a perfect instruction book from an always busy mom to her soon to be busy professional daughters.

    Recipe #411992

    It doesn't get any easier. I still savor the childhood memories of coming back from church to the mouth-watering smell of the onion soup mix mixed with beef juice. Yum.

    Recipe #411990

    Take a guess at the quantities. Mom's directions liberally use the phrase "desired amount." Aunt Francis brought this to every shared family meal, and it was consistently a favorite by all of us.

    Recipe #410612

    Recipe #410614

    I don't remember having this until probably the 1970's, but once mom started making it, the salad was a favorite dish to take to potlucks.

    Recipe #411995

    It may be true only in my memory, but orange jello with carrots and pineapple was a staple with our meals, almost as much as a green lettuce salad is in other households. The addition of cream cheese and marshmallows makes this the company deluxe version.
