    Tis the season for dips and spreads. This is cheesy, tasty and easy to make. Originally from the Prodigy cooking site, circa 1/93; and it's still good after all these years. There are a lot of excellent Prodigy recipes in my "Olde" file. Way back then, I read Prodigy on a black screen with gold letters, called it my Steeler computer! Ahhhh, the good old days. Add 20-25 minutes to time if you want to serve this hot.

    Recipe #402719

    Tasty meat! Excellent sauce! From John Owen via The Seattle Intelligencer (great name for a newspaper, huh?) If your meat is a cheaper cut, you might want to tenderize it first. Or simmer it for a longer period of time. Once I used bison; it was great. I don't always use the cheese.

    Recipe #399775

    I've never had a better one. Been making this for years. Use a chablis, sauvignon blanc or any not-sweet similar white wine; it need not be a great wine but the wine DOES add that certain something. I've even been known to add a tiny splash of dry sherry at the finish. The soup is filling and delicious. Also freezes well. A vintage recipe, from my "olde" recipe file. I'll tell you how old it is: it calls for 17 oz. cans of creamed corn! I have no idea where the recipe came from originally!

    Elegant, creamy and delicious. Quick to make. A pinch of rosemary, thyme or tarragon can be added, if to your taste. Spoon over puff pastry patty shells for company. Or over noodles, pasta, or mashed potatoes for an upscale family dinner. From my "Olde Recipe" files.

    aka Coffee Raisin Bars. A good "olde" recipe from the 50's. Posted in answer to a request. We've been enjoying these for years. One of those old-fashioned cookie bars people always like. Not elegant or gorgeous but just plain good.

    Recipe #390254

    Years ago this was THE most popular and coveted recipe at the Polish church of my youth. The flavoring most used was a butter/vanilla/nut flavoring combination sold locally. The cherries and nuts were not cut fine; thus they formed a pretty pattern in a slice of cake. The cake is moist and flavorful with a lovely texture. Very important to start baking in a COLD OVEN!. And the baking time is LONG! No icing needed. Or wanted!

    Should you make my Kielbasa, Homemade Kielbasa, Fresh Polish Sausage, Recipe #386789, this is a very good way to cook it. This is better even than simmering it in beer. Servings, of course, depend on the amount you are cooking! As to cooking time, remember, this is RAW pork; it requires sufficient cooking time.

    Recipe #387079

    Posting as requested. We've perfected this recipe to OUR taste (very peppery and garlicky) over 20 years; my mother worked on it for years prior to that, even helping a Polish friend make it for a little Polish grocery store/butcher shop she owned. That said, we've found that it all works differently every year, depending on the quality of the meat, spices and casings. There's always SOME kind of problem! But it ends up remarkably consistent in taste. The directions are deliberately lengthy, the way I wrote them for a non-Polish non-sausage-making friend. And they're a little informal here and there. But DO read them through before you get into this project! Prep time and sausage-making time are actually just a couple of hours each day for 2 days. We use an electric grinder which forces the meat through a horn into the casing. Recipe #387079 is our favorite way to cook this kielbasa. Make this 3-4 weeks ahead, wrap very well, and freeze in vac packs. You can also cook it before you freeze it; we don't. We've kept this in the deep-freeze for several months with no loss in quality. Oh, and we call this fresh sausage because we don't smoke it. You certainly can do that, if you like the flavor.

    Recipe #386789

    Not a pie, yet more than a cake. The sour cream topping puts this one over the top. Not sure this is really Canadian, but it's so good, if I were Canadian, I would be proud to claim it! From my "Olde" recipe file.

    Recipe #386077

    A European type cake. Looks elegant but is quite easy to make. I have only used the Italian prune plums, don't know if other plums would be as good. I use a splash of Cassis in the fruit but Zaar wouldn't recognize Cassis; that's a plum liqueur. Once a friend gave me a small bottle of Slivovitz; that was even better than the Cassis. A little whipped cream would go well with this. Best eaten the same day made as it gets very moist. Yes, it's from my "Olde" stash of recipes! I've been making this for years.

    Recipe #385110

    From "Seasoned in Sewickley," a Pittsburgh area cookbook published in 1980. This is a cold, quick, light and refreshing dessert, good for summertime. And pretty, too. Simple to make. It IS better if made the night before so that the vanilla wafers have a chance to soften. EDITED to make it clear that you need 18 plus 36 vanilla wafers so you need to buy a whole box. And the crushed wafer/crushed pineapple mixture needs to be fairly wet so that the the stacked wafers will soften. If you drain the crushed pineapple, keep the juice in case you need to add it in. From my cache of "Olde" recipes.

    I just found this recipe among my Mother's handwritten recipe cards circa 1976. As I remember, we enjoyed it often. I think it came from a Pa. Dutch cookbook we had. That book might have been a gift from my Pa. Dutch mother-in-law. We never used the pineapple, though.

    Soooo good! I found this in a Sargento Cheese Ad sometime in 1996. It tastes like veggie lasagna, could be a vegetarian main dish or a side for dinner. Or a Lenten specialty. I did have to thin the cream sauce out before I baked it because the dish thickens up quite a lot in the oven. You can use penne or other pasta but the bowties are really pretty. You can find a picture on the Sargento web site.

    When you're not in the mood to cook, this is THE recipe. Not a sandwich-no bread; not a quiche; not a pie-no crust; just good, plain and fast to do. And only one dirty bowl. Just be SURE to grease the pie plate VERY well. This also lends itself to any number of additions. A great lunch. Or, on the side, a few slices of tomatoes or a small salad and Voila! Dinner! From my collection of really "Olde" recipes.

    Not your standard lemon cheesecake pie. This is a CAKE!! Lemony and delicious. From my "Olde" recipe file.

    Recipe #382476

    Delicately elegant, similar to a real semifreddo but quickly and easily made. Eggless for those not liking to use uncooked fresh eggs in a cold dessert. (That would be me!) Flavor with rum, Amaretto, or your personal choice. The Italians like semifreddo desserts cold, not frozen because the flavor is more apparent. This dessert comes from the elegant Caffe Greco in Rome and was in my files of "Olde" recipes!

    Recipe #382472

    Isn't this a terrific name! Yummy for breakfast. Kids love'm. And why not!! They look mighty good with some frosting drizzled over top. Basically these are drop biscuits, as in biscuits and not cookies! I came across the recipe while browsing through some of the older cookbooks in my collection. From Country Kitchen Cookbooks - Baking, 1986.

    Recipe #371889

    Similar to #263677 Pierogi Leniwe (Polish Cheese Dumplings) but maybe a little easier and less time-consuming. Simple to make and very good. Great for Lenten meals. From a Slovenian Cookbook in my collection.

    Recipe #367889

    Well, OK, maybe 17 minutes. But quick and GOOD! A vintage recipe, meaning I don't remember WHERE I got it! But it was a while ago.

    Recipe #367887

    Aunt Hattie made a living out of baking this, and Placek, pound cake and other Polish recipes to order. That kept her pretty busy. A very old treasured family recipe. Jarred fruit filling (such as Solo brand) may be used instead of the home-made pineapple filling. Not quite as good though. And you might need more than one jar. Might as well bite the bullet and just make it yourself!
