From Cookbook compiled by The Nursing Service Dept. of West Nebraska General Hospital, 1977. This recipe belongs to Mary Kaufman. Cooking time does not allow for jello setting. Prepare to make this salad early as the jello needs to be firmly set in order to spread on topping.
My grandmother used to make the BEST milk gravy! She would serve it over chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes. Unfortunatley, I never got her original recipe. I came across this recipe in a "Cooking with Paula Deen" magazine and I think this is very close to what my grandmother used to make!
This is a complimentary dish served by a local upscale restaurant. They serve it before you receive your salad along with a dish of fresh vegtable sticks and olives. I can make a meal on just on the veggies and this bean salad. (Prep time does not include the overnight chilling).
I used to babysit a whole gaggle of kids and slow cooking sandwiches on the stove top just wasnt practical! This is a nice oven baked alternative. If you are really in a hurry, use the broiler! (For a full lunch, I would add two slices of turkey or ham to each sandwich)
This is a really great and easy recipe. My kids love it; and of course they don't like veggies! I received this through a recipe swap from a woman named Jeannie Lofland. I add fresh garlic to the beef and sprinkle seasoning between layers. I also like to use different cheeses; cheddar can be so oily. Try putting a bit of cheese on top of the beef before adding the other ingredients.
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
Kids and adults alike love this 'salad!' Nice to slice & serve on a lettuce leaf (for presentation)- the colors can be varied to suit any holiday - greens & reds for Christmas, varying shades of red for Valentine's Day, etc.. ENJOY! This sounds like a lot of work, but it's really not. This is one I like to make when I'll be working around home all day, and can stop to do step after step. :)
Chicken in a creamy, mild curry sauce. From my Grandma's recipe box, I grew up with this and had no idea it was so easy until my late 20's. I get many compliments on it, notably from those who claim they do not like "indian" food.
You will not believe the deeply satisfying flavour of this stew. This is our favourite wintry stew dish - comfort food to the max. The cooking time is more or less accurate, but it really depends on the cut of meat used - not everyone used chuck, and then, not all chuck is the same! You really have to poke and prod and taste to get it to where you want it...but that's what cooking is all about, isn't it? ;-)
