Named for my mom, this recipe originally came from Tupperware. No other sugar cookie recipe even compares. These cookies are meant to be cut out and can be eaten plain or frosted. This recipe makes a LOT, depending on how big of cookies you cut out.
This is a wonderful cake recipe that came on the back of, I believe, a Gold Medal flour package. In the 1980's my younger sister won prizes with Girl Scouts in several baking competitions. The caramel frosting is the best touch!
This is from a very well-used recipe booklet called "Family Fare: Food Management and Recipes", published by the Department of Agriculture in April 1968. The booklet is literally falling apart. I thought I would try to preserve it here. The recipe has been increased from the original to better provide for our very large family.
This is delicious as a main dish for dinner (serve salad and garlic bread with it) or as a potluck-type dish. I believe that it came from one of the Reiman magazines originally. I often double the recipe when I make it.
We've used this recipe since I was a kid. My mom said that she found it in a newspaper in Nevada, Iowa. My sister just won best of show with this recipe at her county fair in Colorado. This recipe makes two loaves.
This recipe has been in our family for a long time. We use it for any type of fruit cobbler. Instead of the berries, you could use 1 or 2 cans of canned cherry pie filling. I just used freshly picked berries for this recipe today.
We've had this recipe in our family for a long time. I pull it out whenever our apples start going bad, because it's a great way to use up apples. I always use whatever apple varieties we have on hand, most often yellow or red delicious.
This is one of the moistest banana breads I've ever had. This recipe was sent by my father to my mother when they were dating back in the early 60's. My dad had found it in a newspaper. It's been a family favorite, and very few banana breads even compare, in my opinion. It's also a really good way to use up overly ripe bananas.
