This is a variation of a fruit salad that my Godmother made at all of our holiday celebrations. She did alot of prep work and cooking to make this. I've made it simple and it has become a staple with my daughters. They have enjoyed this for 22 and 25 years respectfully!!!! It wouldn't be a family gathering without it!!
When I worked as nurse many years ago our hospital served the best salad in their cafeteria. It was called Pullman Salad and they never could have enough of it around when they served it. I would like to share that recipe with you......enjoy!!
I prepare my own Olive Oil Blend for cooking, sauteing, salad dressings, etc. It is simple and not over-powering to the taste buds. Sometime I find EVOO to taste to strong for some dishes but this always works.
This is a very simple to make bar cookie, goes great with a cup of coffee for breakfast or any other time of the day. My old neighbor, Aunt Lou, introduced me to this recipe about 40 years ago when I was a little girl. It's always been a favorite of mine because I've always LOVED coffee!!!
I was given this recipe many years ago by a co-worker and it "IS" the best peanut butter cookie that you will "EVER" eat. The almond extract brings out the flavors so well, it is yummy! They won't last long in your house!
I tasted this cake at a church in Scranton, Pennsylvania many years ago and was fortunate to be able to find the lady who baked it and beg the recipe. She was sweet to share it, but I never got her name!! It's delicious!!
My Mom made this years ago just about every Sunday for our family dinner dessert.. We lost the recipe and I was lucky to find it again stuffed in her recipe box. Mom is 83 now and doesn't bake much, it's easier for her to visit a bakery!!
My grandmother made these for us every year during the holidays when we would visit her in Illinois. All of the grandkids loved them. I'm happy to share the recipe with my Zaar cooking buddies. Remember to look for the candies in February and save them for the whole year!!
This is my mother's recipe, it is remarkable in that it 'never' gets stale. It doesn't last long enough in our house but she states that it keeps for weeks. The 'secret' is the cream cheese in the recipe. This cake can be varied in numerous ways, from adding cherries to nuts to chocolate chips to coconut. Let your imagination be your guide!!
I have always loved Red Velvet Cake but never wanted to take the time to make it 'scratch'. I found this recipe in a magazine and it is delightful. Tastes like a 'scratch' cake and is quite simple to prepare.
A farmer friend of ours taught me the way to freeze sweet corn and enjoy it like it was just picked in the middle of the winter. It's very simple and all you need is freezer room, ziploc bags and water!!!!!! He would drop off a large sack of corn to us when it was in season and we would have it all winter. I have tried freezing corn every which way and it always tastes 'soggy'. This way keeps the corn incredibly
