A spinach salad or baby mixed green salad and warm crusty bread round out this meal nicely. From Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Comfort Foods. This is very tasty but I think it needs some color -- green peas? parsley?
This is a combination of recipes that I have put together to make biscuits. I was teaching my daughter to make biscuits and gave her a recipe and then kept telling her ... "but I do this...." So I decided I'd better write it down so she can follow a written recipe. So, here's to you and Reno, Tee!
This comes from my 1973 Good Housekeeping Cook Book. I made it once many years ago and my notation in the side margin says "needs more sugar in the choco mixture." So I'll enter the recipe as written and leave it up to you!
This is part of a recipe I took from "Cuisine at Home." They served the meat over southwestern flavored mashed potatoes--I'd like plain mashed or maybe garlic mashed potatoes. They also had spinach and tomatoes on it which I don't want either. I haven't made it yet.
My own concoction with my new favorite vodka, Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, made in South Carolina. I discovered it on my recent vacation in Charleston. Measurements are approximate; adjust to your taste. Be careful; this doesn't taste alcoholic! I use diet Sprite to keep the calories down; you could use regular.
This is the recipe that I learned to make beef stew with, as a young cook. I have since modified it but I wanted to put the basics online for my daughters since I just wing it these days. I chose this one because it cooked relatively quickly (compared to my grandmother's recipe). This comes from the 1973 Good Housekeeping Cook Book, which was the cook book I used as a young bride.
Source: Mrs. T's Pierogies. You can use the frozen potato & cheese pierogies or the potato & onion pierogies. It was classified as an appetizer but I'll bet it could be a meal...lunch or supper. Haven't made these yet; just wanted to save the recipe for my daughter's southwestern boyfriend's next visit.
I was in the mood for vegetables tonight so I threw this together. I ended up adding bacon and ham which was not my original intent but I wanted some more flavor. It was delicious! I had seconds (which, if you knew me, that's saying something!).
I would make this for my daughters as an afterschool treat. It produces a moist, dense, delicious cake. Since it's baked in a 9x9 pan, there's not a whole lot of cake around to tempt me for too long! Make your own frosting or use store-bought. Or simply dust it powdered sugar!
A twist on plain applesauce! This recipe comes from an older cookbook entitled "The Modern Family Cook Book" by Meta Given. The edition I have was published in 1945. I made this recipe for my daughters quite awhile ago and they enjoyed it. I just recently stumbled across it again and wanted to post it so I don't lose it and so I could share it.
