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.
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.
This is the one "must have" recipe that we request each time we visit our parents. Throughout our life we were raised that this was a war recipe that our Grandma Ruby used to work with the limited rations. Recently, however, our mother has discovered links for the recipe going back to the 1800's.
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!
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.
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.
