    Soft, light, sweet and floral. Goes well with Asian dishes.

    Recipe #314941

    Very rich and buttery cookies from my friend Elisabeth. Just perfect for children, grandchildren and a few left over for us. A number of people have added that they baked the cookies for a longer time. I tried that, and my cookies burned. Then I realized it is because I roll them VERY thin. I measured a baked cookie, and it was 1/16". So, if you roll them thin, pay attention to the time, if they are not quite that thin it will take more time than I stated in the recipe. I also use this recipe for Easter cookies, and have posted some Easter cookie pictures. Today, 4th of July, we made Independance Day cookies. I baked them for 5 minutes. My sister-in-law says what makes them so good is how thin I roll them.

    Recipe #83963

    My mother spoke of having bonfires when she was young, growing up on Long Island. The kids would throw potatoes into the fire. She said they would be burned and hard on the outside with light fluffy potatoes on the inside. When cooked this way, the outside is very crisp and crunchy, and the inside nice and fluffy. We throw a bunch of potatoes into the oven of the wood cook stove many, many nights during the winter months. We frequently put them in the gas stove, in warmer months, when cooking a roast, or other oven dinner. But somehow, "mickies" are not the same unless cooked in our Home Comfort! We always think of Mother when we have mickies.

    Recipe #197960

    Smooth, simple, and savory. Dedicated to Julie (.::.Blink.::.)

    Recipe #200005

    Oh so tender! Last night it was venison steak, tonight it is venison tenderloin. Thanks again Scott--and thank you Phillip! (another dear deer man!) Thanks Carrie and Tom!

    Recipe #199363

    Ethel was one of our women in our Sewing Bee, she passed away recently, she was a young 93. I made this chicken dish to take to the dinner following her memorial service. She gave this to me years ago. Easy to make, and very tasty. We usually throw a few potatoes into the oven before starting the dish, and cook some tiny garden peas at the end.

    Recipe #197788

    Heather gave me this recipe. She said she never liked "those things!" until her mother had a dinner party and fixed them like this. I like them no matter how they are fixed, but must admit, these are one of my favorite ways of having brussels sprouts.

    Recipe #199394

    My sister gave me a cookbook back in the 60's that had this marvelous waffle recipe in it by Jackie Kennedy. Truly it is fit for our White House. I copied the recipe over many times, and like to use it for company or leisurely weekend mornings. One of the marvelous things about this recipe, is that the waffles freeze well. I bought a new Waffle iron, and the waffles fit into a (wide opening) toaster. I plan to make these for Christmas morning, and have it become a tradition.

    Recipe #182392

    This pie is magical! I think the secret is the lemon juice and lemon zest, or maybe it's the flaky crust. The pie crust makes two shells, I save the second shell for a quiche, or freeze it for another pie at some later date. One of my best friends always wants me to make this when she has covered dish parties, or we invite them to dinner. The recipe is adapted from a wonderful cookbook, Twelve Company Dinners, that my father gave to me Christmas, 1964. I have posted a separate recipe of the Recipe #408669 for anyone who needs more detailed instruction and more pictures. For the best pie, be sure to remove filling from the heat before you stir in the lemon juice and butter and spread the meringue while the filling is hot! Be sure to add 3 to 6 hours for cooling. Time includes firming up time. If no Pie Mix: 1 1/2 cups sugar 3 tablespoons corn starch 3 tablespoons flour dash salt 1 1/2 cups water 3 egg yolks the same butter, lemon rind, and juice.

    Recipe #182002

    We have celebrated this pie with Thanksgivings and Christmases for over 40 years! The pie is extremely light and of such a high volume, it looks like clouds. We do not normally put whipped cream on top, as this is truly gilding the lily. But then again, it certainly makes it lush. This pie is just a little different than the others posted here, it is spicier and a little bit sweeter. I count chilling time in the passive time, as well as the cooking time. I start this pie in the morning, so I don't feel rushed. It really does take time for the pie to firm up. I have posted a separate recipe of the Recipe #408669 for anyone who needs more detailed instruction and more pictures.

    Recipe #187482

    When I first starting making bread, I thought putting shortening on my hands would help in kneading. I was wrong! I wound up kneading the bread in the air. So I read everything about bread making I could, and after using a lot of recipes, I made bread that won the blue ribbon in the State Fair. Although I have written the recipe to use dry yeast, I use compressed yeast, if I can find it. The temperature for compressed yeast is 85 degrees. I also use this basic white bread to make cinnamon-raisin, herb, and sun-dried tomato basil. This recipe was not intended for use in a bread machine, as it makes 2 loaves. I do sift the flour before measuring, which makes it light. Since the excitement of the Blue Ribbon Recipes on the Zaar, a lot of people have asked me questions. I am trying to answer them by tweaking my recipe, and adding comments here at the top. Someone asked if they had to use "shortening". I don't think there are too many musts... Today, I made one of the two loaves with about 1/2 cup of Calamata Olives (pitted and cut into small pieces), and about 3 ounces of a shredded three cheese blend (Parmesan, Asiago, & Romano), it was awesome. My 8 year old granddaughter could not get enough! Next time, I will try to use olive oil with this combination.

    Recipe #162214

    My best sorbet recipe. Sweet, smooth, and very refreshing. This was one of the things my mother frequently asked me to make for her when she was in assisted living. It is the first to go at ice cream socials. Everyone loves it. I serve it with my Recipe #83963. I found this in the newspaper years ago and adapted it to suit my style. For the best dessert ever, serve it in the Recipe #327004. The flavors are wonderful when combined!

    Recipe #126086

    This is a very old recipe, that my Aunt Isabel (born 1900) used to make every year at Christmas. She made it for as long as I can remember. I was told it was a Methodist tradition. It is a dense, somewhat dry fruitcake, with chocolate bits in it. It is supposed to be sliced very thin. Well... I updated the recipe. I put the ingredients in order and gave better directions. The first time I made it, I was not doing it very smoothly, in fact, it was a disaster! The second time, I actually knew what to do, so here is what I've learned, and I also posted pictures.

    Recipe #185426

    When I first learned to cook... (more than 60 years ago!) my mother wrote out a recipe for Brownies on the back inside cover of her cookbook "All About Home Baking" copyright 1933. On the inside cover, she wrote, "To Barbara with loving memories, Mother. August 4, 1974. The one recipe for brownies contained in the book is not the one she wrote on the back. It begins: 1.Utensils 2.Ingredients 3.Light oven 4.Grease pan 5.Start I even wrote the specific utensils in the corner. Ahhh... I love these memories. The brownies are very light, and fudge-like, and the best I have ever had. I could not find a recipe like it here.

    Recipe #182491

    The three other Apple Crunch recipes are somewhat similar, but this is our family version. We don't use brown sugar, there is no crust (as in the apple crumb pies), and we mix it a little differently. This also had it's beginnings in a church cookbook. We serve it warm (hot) from the oven, with either ice cream on top, or a lot of milk.

    Recipe #183275

    Michael is the daily cook and makes a lot of plain and simple foods. When he cooks "Mexican", this is the first part he serves. Tonight we only had burritos, I had two, of course. I like mine best without any meat. Michael likes his with whatever leftover meat that is in the refrigerator.

    Recipe #194747

    We love tomatoes! Every year, when our tomatoes come in, I make spaghetti sauce, can some of the tomatoes, do sun dried tomatoes with the romas, and make fresh salsa. I usually can the salsa, too. I love making it extremely hot, as it tends to mellow in the canning process. Sometimes, though, the heat just comes right on through. It is not a raw type of hot, but with the canning, it tends to age quite nicely. I keep a crock of salsa going all Summer and Fall. I don't can it until the flavors have had a change to mingle and the raw taste is gone. (about 3-4 days)

    Recipe #244083

    I can never get enough! Maxine and Linda inspired me to write this recipe. Although it is not exactly how they make it, it is close. They prefer Miracle Whip, and don't add the onions. I used this to stuff the small puff pastries (Recipe #186307) to make hors d'oeuvres. I dice and chop finely for the hors d'oeuvres, and coarsely for sandwiches or salad.

    Recipe #207901

    My father-in-law said that war would end if we followed a simple rule: what you kill, you have to eat. Thus this recipe. The squirrels were climbing up the walnut tree onto the roof, into the attic, and then chewing the wood of the house and tossing the insulation to the breeze. I decided to put a stop to it by trapping the squirrels (and eating them, of course). This is the dish I took to an "Elvis party".

    Recipe #186021

    Simple and plain again. Michael's Mexican for Sunday breakfast. I love this.
