A rich, delicious, custard-y bread pudding. Not overly sweet, just yummy. From the April, 1944 issue of Woman's Day, in an article called "Wartime Cooking: Good Desserts," which consisted entirely of recipes for using up "odds and ends of bread and sliced bread that might otherwise go to waste." Thought it was a good recipe for these penny-pinching days, too.
From The Frugal Gourmet, Jeff Smith, an absolutely delicious recipe for a too-often neglected vegetable. People who think they don't like cabbage will like this---and people who DO like cabbage will love this!
From the Pillsbury 7th Grand National contest-winners cookbook: "Peanut butter and chocolate layers on a butterscotch cookie base--a rich, candy-like bar cookie." Mrs. Ernest P. Fletcher won for this recipe. It is indeed dreamy, a heavenly combination of semi-sweet chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and buttery deliciousness!
I found this recipe in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, as part of their special section of Super Bowl party recipes. It is originally from "Great Party Dips," by Peggy Fallon (Wiley, $16.95). It is an absolutely superb blend of shrimp, bacon, and cream cheese, with a bit of a kick provided by horseradish, cayenne, green onions, and parmesan cheese. Serve with crackers or pita chips. Great stuff.
