    Mom used the recipe straight off the box of the Quaker Oatmeal canister. This has always been extra special because of the warm thoughts it brings to me of my Aunt Marshee who worked at the Quaker Oatmeal plant as an executive assistant for most of her professional career.

    Recipe #412000

    It doesn't get any easier. I still savor the childhood memories of coming back from church to the mouth-watering smell of the onion soup mix mixed with beef juice. Yum.

    Recipe #411990

    This was one of Dad's favorites, plus it felt special whenever mom made it because I didn't know of any other families who ate salmon. It was especially good when Mom added a little fat to the skillet to give a crispy golden brown crust to the patties.

    Recipe #410964

    Every family gathering included a relish tray filled with food that was never seen at any other time of the year. Pickled eggs, sweet Gherkin pickles, pimento stuffed olives, and even heart of palm. Most of this seemed to be enjoyed most by my great aunts, with the one exception of mom's deviled eggs. This is still a treat that I'll grab up lickety-split at any pot luck meal.

    Recipe #410972

    Another Mama Hawman simplified version of a common family favorite.

    Recipe #411996

    Yummy and rich. Mom's note at the bottom of the recipe includes this advice: For same recipe as above, only much simpler, cheaper and less calories, see the recipe for Holiday Spaghetti.

    Recipe #410975

    No pantry was complete without a supply of cream of chicken soup on hand for recipes such as this. For a generation of women just beginning to flood into the workplace, these quick fix recipes paved the way for Hamburger Helper and other "meal-in-a-box" solutions.

    Recipe #410961

    This might as well be titled, "Mom's Hodge-podge Home-made Hamburger Helper." Although I seldom cook with hamburger, this is a wonderful example of how mom taught us how to improvise, adapt, and experiment to the nth! This one's being added for posterity! The next time I pour in a cup of salsa because I'm out of tomatoes, I'll think of mom and blow her a kiss. MUAH!

    Recipe #411989

    This makes an easy recipe to serve company or a quick weeknight meal.

    Recipe #410960

    Quick to make with ingredients that are almost always on hand, this was a favorite dessert throughout the fall apple season in our household.

    Recipe #410042

    Here's another apple recipe that made Fall a favorite time of year.

    Recipe #410229

    This was my Dad's favorite.

    Recipe #427333

    I was a very, VERY picky eater growing up. This recipe may have started me on my path to gastronomical adventures.

    Recipe #410971

    After growing up relishing my mother's beef stew, I stumbled onto a decadent equivalent from Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins wonderful cookbook, "The New Basics" in the early 1990s. 20 years later and it's still a favorite winter staple. My version is a bit simplified from the original, but as long as the wine and bacon are included, the results will be savored by all.

    Recipe #410080

    Dana's simple twist on the traditional turkey stuffing makes this special family day even more sumptuous.

    Recipe #413183

    Take a guess at the quantities. Mom's directions liberally use the phrase "desired amount." Aunt Francis brought this to every shared family meal, and it was consistently a favorite by all of us.

    Recipe #410612

    This is similar to other bean bake recipes, but with a heavier dose of mustard and molasses. My memory is of a sweet and tangy sauce, perfect for a family gathering.

    Recipe #410613

    Another addition to the 1992 cookbook

    Recipe #438026

    Mom's recipe shows how versatile stew was. The specifics called for? Beef; an assortment of winter vegetables of any amount - frozen or fresh; and for liquid..your choice of tomato juice, water or bullion. For the sake of the recipe program, I randomly picked exact measurements and lazily choose the frozen vegetable route. But if you keep reading you'll find mom's original directions, so relax and do whatever works.
