    What a perfect way to celebrate Summer's Bounty, than with a fresh vegetable bake that uses common items from your Summer garden? The flavours burst in your mouth, and despite the bacon and cheese, this is NOT a heavy dish! I served it with Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken and cornbread slices. NOTE I: the original recipe was from a free pamphlet and had the most vague of ingredient ratios and instructions. It took 1/2 a day for me to get the proportions correct so ANYBODY could make it and enjoy it! NOTE II: This site won't allow the word "heaping" for cup measurements. Use a HEAPING CUP OF VEGGIES or you'll run short!

    Recipe #463253

    Fruit is SO tasty and good for you, but every once in a while, you'd like to dress it up a bit, without all the calories! This is a simple, delightful dressing that comes together in less than 2 minutes. You can serve it immediately or allow the flavours to meld together. Mix it either into your fruit of choice or have it along the side, for friends to dip their fruit slices into or add the volume they want. This recipe is for 2 servings.

    Recipe #463155

    This is such a deceptively delicious dessert. Traditionally, it is made with red currants as the star but few people have access to those tart gems unless they grow it, themselves. So now, for ease of preparation, this is made two ways: either with raspberries to add the characteristic tartness of the original version or with a mix of Summer berries such as raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. I'm made it every which way: traditional and modern and it's a hit every single time. Potato flour is the preferred choice of thickener; it can be purchased in the Jewish Foods aisle of your store if it's not in the baking aisle. Otherwise, ordinary corn starch can be substituted for the potato starch. I serve this in clear glass ramekins to enjoy the jewel-like tones and a thin layer of poured whipping cream is floated over the top. After a heavy meal or when it's scorching hot outside, this is the PERFECT simple dessert for your friends and family to enjoy. NOTE I: A different recipe, using the same ratios, is made with Rhubarb. NOTE II: Depending upon how you were taught to make this, after the fruit is softened through simmering, some families strain the berries to remove seeds and skins while others don't. It's delicious either way.

    Recipe #438388

    There's a thimble-sized Farmer's Market in our neighborhood and one August visit, I bought a fresh plum cake. I thought nothing of it except "Well, now I have dessert for tonight." Little did I know what an adventure it would turn into! The wrapping from the bakery was tossed and unobtainable after my family went insane for this cake! Beyond moist, a perfect blend of tart and sweet, I spent days trying to locate a similar recipe with no luck; every "plum cake" that I found had either plum baby food or some crumb or streusal topping. I finally located the bakery through the Farmer's Market and found out the name of the cake. It's a Polish delicacy and MUST be made with fresh plums, in season fruit.

    Recipe #433622

    This is a doubly delightful cherry quick bread that is sure to delight! It uses canned cherry pie filling and the added bonus of orchard fresh sour cherries. Very moist, dense and delicious, this makes both wonderful loaf size breads and fantastic muffins. There is no need to frost, glaze or adorn this bread in any other's THAT good! Please note: you will NOT get the same results if you substitute oil for butter or applesauce for butter/oil. Your baking times will increase and the cherry flavour will be diminished. Also, cinnamon's are different. I use a Vietnamese cinnamon which is a much softer, less harsh cinnamon. Also, times are NOT for a large loaf pan. The baking time can exceed one hour if you choose to bake in a larger pan. This recipe is for small loaves or large muffins. Baking time will vary with muffin or loaf pan size!

    Recipe #431836

    When Martha Stewart first published this recipe in her Martha Stewart Living Magazine in 1995, she had an entire article explaining the "where's/how's/and what not to do's" with regards to lemon curd. I had only ever purchased lemon curd prior to this recipe, and wasn't impressed with it. Too thick, too tart and short shelf life for the very high price. THIS recipe changed my mind: soft, teasingly tart, the ability to make it tarter or softer in flavour all had me saying "THIS IS THE WORLD'S BEST LEMON CURD!!!" I've never tried another recipe since, even Martha's "New & Improved" curd recipes, where she seems to have forgotten what she taught us fans of hers, so many years ago. According to the article, the reasons why THIS curd recipe is so superior is the following:1) Beating the egg yolks until rich yellow and then straining the first time creates a smooth, albumen-free base. 2) Cooking the mixture WITHOUT the zest creates a "softer", less bitter curd. Cooked zest just becomes more bitter, even without the white pith. 3) A second straining removes any possibility of "scrambled eggs" from your curd! 4) Adding the chilled butter, cut into pieces, to the eggs does two things: it rapidly cools down the curd so it doesn't continue to cook and also the buttery flavour is not changed by cooking with the yolks! 5) Adding the zest after the curd is cooled creates a smooth, flavourful but not bitter curd! Are these steps too many for some people? Oh, I'm sure of it, especially the straining steps. And some curd recipes have you dump everything together in the pan so that sure makes it simple. However, after 15 years of making this one curd recipe, I've found the little bit of extra time involved in creating it makes for a superiour end product. NOTE: If you do not want a dense, eggy Lemon Curd, use WHOLE EGGS for the recipe, rather than egg yolks. That would be four whole eggs to the six egg yolks.

    This recipe is posted as a request for a Zaar member who lost her original card from the Betty Crocker recipe cards of the 70's. From "Hurry Up Main Dishes #23."

    Recipe #428701

    A British friend made these for me when I visited her in 1999 and I've been making them every since. They are very buttery and spread like crazy while baking, but you can almost hear the bees buzzing on the lavender when you try one. I kept the recipe to myself for quite a while and only shared it with another friend when she remarked how good they were. Now, they are a standard in HER home and a perennial favourite at her church's bake sale! Very good when served with a cuppa hot tea, especially Earl Grey. And please don't be tempted to add salt or vanilla extract; this is just a plain buttery lavender cookie.

    Recipe #424913

    After a day of hard work in the garden, I was aching for a cold glass of lemonade. This recipe came to me as I was contemplating how to put it together: I wanted a zippy lemonade and remembered some spiced honey that I had made plus there was ginger ale in the frig. If you have all of the ingredients on hand, this comes together in minutes with NO effort at all! Have fresh lemon juice frozen in ice cube trays, cold ginger ale, and this recipe Recipe #110383 in your pantry and you'll always have a delicious, refreshing drink at the ready!

    Recipe #420306

    So often, when you find a recipe, you wonder if the poster has actually made it. I can say that I've been eating these waffles for over 52 years--that's half a century of enjoyment! :) Every Sunday was Waffle Day and we never tired of it; it was a tradition that we loved to honour. First my Grandpa made these, then my Mum, and now I make them for my own family. This is a very, very thick batter. I use a wooden spoon to push it out of the batter bowl onto the hot waffle iron. It makes 4 old-fashioned waffles that are 4 squares; I don't know how many Belgian-style waffles it would make. This does NOT store well because of the rising reaction between the buttermilk and leavening so use up all the batter and freeze any extra waffles to enjoy later in the week. From my Home to Yours: I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have these five decades!

    Recipe #419258

    It's said that "Necessity is the Mother of Invention," and that's how my version of bread pudding was created. I had never made one prior to having guests for dinner that requested a bread pudding for dessert. "No problem!", I thought, "How hard can it be to make?" I chose a classic Betty Crocker recipe, made it, served it, and couldn't eat more than a spoonful! My guests had no problem with it but for me, it was boring, mediocre and didn't hold my interest. Because my family refuses to eat raisins and I was so sorely disappointed in the original recipe, I spent a week with my cookbooks, pouring over them and taking notes from various recipes. I ultimately decided to treat each aspect of the bread pudding as a single unit: if I'd love to eat the custard, alone, than it was a winner. Same went for the bread: if it was such a great bread that I could eat it plain, then it had to be included. And since raisins were out, I decided to use mixed berries as a contrast against the custardy bread filling. And what came out of the oven was a winner! Because the pudding is so creamy and slightly sweet, the sharp tang of the berries just zipped right through the sweetness and burst onto your tongue, making you almost draw in your breath from the delicious contrast. Then, add the orange-flavoured whipped cream, which added another layer of distinct flavour to it, and it was a our home! Is this the most economical bread pudding, using scraps of this and that? No. Is this the simplest of bread pudding recipes to create, dumping stale bread and milk together, toss in an egg or two, a handful of raisins and into the oven? No, again. But, this IS a bread pudding that will make you proud to serve it at your table. It's a bread pudding that treated each element with the respect that it deserved, creating a quality dessert. So, if you want a slightly more upscale version of a bread pudding that is sure to wow your family, please try my version, that will become our standard from now on. And yes!, the temperature is correct: it's 335 degrees; I split the difference between 325 for custard and 350 for cake. This way, the bread browns nicely but the custard doesn't overbake. Enjoy!

    Recipe #413958

    Growing up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, there were always fresh eggs available from our chickens. When eggs were especially plentiful, Grandma would always make this baked custard to "use them up." What's nice about this recipe is that the leftover 2 egg whites are wonderful to save and freeze, for use in boiled frostings or angel food cake, so nothing is wasted. This is a very "eggy" tasting, buttercup-yellow custard, which is why you're making custard, after all. I've made it with milk, Half & Half and whipping cream, but always go back to "just" milk. It keeps the dessert light and simple; when a heavier milk product is used, it becomes too heavy and too much like creme brulee, not that there's anything wrong with that! LOL But, baked egg custard should taste light, sweet, and egg-rich, with you always wanting more! We eat it warm, cool, cold. We eat it plain or with Swedish Stewed Fruit served on top. Any way that we can enjoy this baked custard, we do!

    Recipe #413869

    This is the only way that my family has been making, and eating, French Toast since I was a wee girl. The slices turn out wonderfully "eggy" tasting; just like the best of bread pudding. We would make it one of two ways: either dip and fry or overnight and bake. Each way has it's own merits, so I continue to make them with both versions, depending upon the time I have each weekend. Although we used only cinnamon-raisin bread as a child, I've used wheat, white, artisan and sourdough breads as an adult...but I always return to the original cinnamon-raisin bread as my hands down favourite.

    Recipe #413866

    I was without a cookbook at a friend's home and needed to remind myself how to make whipped cream, from scratch. Imagine my surprise when I saw that Recipezaar had NO recipe for not only the basic whipped cream, but for a recipe that allowed you to "stabilize" whipped cream for extended fluffiness! So, I've added both versions so I'll never be without this simple reminder, again. Both recipes come from a vintage 1940's Sunbeam Mixmaster recipe booklet.

    Recipe #413776

    I have been making this sweet pepper soup for over 20 years. There are two different versions that we enjoy: the recipe, as posted, with NO sour cream or tomatoes. The other version has added Dijon mustard, sour cream and a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes. It is a delightfully different soup that I used as the base for my Tri-Colour Stuffed Pepper Soup. But, this soup is so good, it can stand alone, just as it is. For quantities to change out the soup, see the NOTE at the top of the directions.

    Recipe #412524

    I discovered this sauce recipe by total accident, randomly paging through a 33 year old Sunset canning book. Once made, it is the BEST fresh tomato sauce I've ever tried or made. Well worth the time it takes to make from scratch.

    Recipe #412475

    Take two frustrating attempts to make a different stuffed green pepper soup and a wonderful blizzardy day and you end up with a soup that mirrors a stuffed green pepper, exactly! There's nothing like dogged determination and lots of time to get something right. I wanted a rich sweet pepper soup that had the delicate flavour of tomatoes and the ability to bite into a meat/rice mixture, just like a real stuffed pepper. This recipe is two parts: first, the Porcupine Meatballs, which can be made a day or two ahead. Then, the Tri-Colour Pepper Soup, which is a stand alone soup that I've been making, and enjoying, for years. If you enjoy a lot of meat, you might want to double the meatball recipe; for our tastes, this is perfect, with 4-5 meatballs served in each bowl. The taste of this soup is quintessential 1950's style Stuffed Green Peppers. If you can tolerate more heat, then jazz it up to your hearts content! This way, you won't find the recipe "too bland", which is how we like it---pure comfort food straight from Leave It To Beaver. Enjoy the meatballs or enjoy the pepper soup, or, enjoy them blended together for the best of all worlds with this stuffed pepper soup! Using the three colours of peppers just adds some fun and depth to it.

    Recipe #412447

    One of my dear friends, Pam, comes from an Amish background and each Summer we head to Millersburg, Ohio to visit her relatives. One visit was during the first Sweet Corn harvest and this dish was served at their table. Initially, I was sceptical about it, having never had my corn served this way...that is, until I ate it and then I couldn't get enough! That was 30+ years ago, and each Summer I wait with the greatest of anticipation for the first Sweet Corn to become available so I can have this simple feast. It's hard for me to have corn any other way now, as it always seems that "something is missing." Note: The servings for an individual are two ears of corn per person. Just increase the recipe, per person, for your serving needs.

    Recipe #411947

    I come from a family of frosting haters. So, any glaze or frosting that I use has to be mighty special. It can't be "too sweet" or "too thick" Goldilocks, it has to be "just right." This delightful recipe makes a non-too-sweet topping, thicker than a glaze and thinner than a cream cheese frosting. I use it on cakes that require only a tiny amount of additional sweetness to make them perfect. The colour of this glaze turns a caramel colour when cooked, so take that into consideration if using on a white cake. It's good on it's own but when either orange or lemon zest is added, it's even better.

    Recipe #411913

    I first was introduced to this recipe when I was reading the book, "Belong to Me", when the main character "would have sold her soul" for a plate of this. I had to do further research and hours later, found a recipe that I was happy with sharing. There are American versions of this and Italian versions of this. The Italian version has you begin by reducing the anchovies into a paste, reducing their fishy taste. It also has you cook the sauce longer, mingling the flavours and reducing the tomatoes into their own paste. Although excellent the 1st day, it is even better the second so plan ahead to make more! And please, RESIST the urge to cover this with cheese! Italians customarily do not use cheese in this dish; the cheese overwhelms the sauce and makes the anchovies more pronounced, unbalancing all the delicate flavours you just worked so hard to create.
