This is another recipe from "The Big Book of Preserving the Harvest" by Carol W. Costenbader. It is supposed to calm the nerves and digestive tract. If you grow your own herbs and dry them, it is really good, but you can use storebought.
Also from yesterday's paper. "It's a new take on a classic summer drink. You can find melon-flavored vodka, with hints of honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon, at most liquor stores." Original recipe from Skyy Vodka.
Parsley, chives, green bell pepper, mustard and cayenne combine in this lovely, quick and easy vinaigrette dressing that is wonderful on any kind of salad greens you like. You should make this ahaed of time so it will have time to chill. From Southern Living, Feb. 1986.
This is something a little different for you. Chopped spinach, black-eyed peas, sour cream, mayonnaise, soup mix, water chestnuts, and garlic powder all mixed up for a Southern tasting spread on pumpernickel or rye party bread. It doesn't get much more Southern than this!
This recipe is from one of my Grandma's old cook books that I found about 10 years ago when I was going through her things after the funeral. This spread is simple to make and tastes really good on a hot, humid, Oklahoma summer day.
This is something I made yesterday for dinner. I made the tea with my iced-tea maker, buy you can make it in the fridge the night before, or however you're accustomed to making tea. It's very light and not sweet like a lot of iced tea drinks--I think the sugar just makes you thirsty, so I didn't add any, but you can if you want.
Delicious on a cold winter's night! You can make this with either maple or mint extract, or any other flavoring you think might be good. Don't be tempted to leave out the butter, it makes it creamier. This is not a low-fat recipe, but you can risk it on occasion!
This is an easy sauce to make, and it tastes pretty good, too. You can serve it with ice cream, pound cake, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, ham, or just use your imagination and combine it with whatever suits your fancy! Source: Southern Living, January 1986.
