Love comfort food? Tired of dry or tough hash brown casseroles? This one freezes well and is definitely good for any time at all. My sons consider it a staple and fight to get the most. From "The Best of Bridge" cookbooks
I use a large head of cauliflower because Adam thinks that this is the main course as well as appetizer and bed time snack. Normal people would only use about 3 cups of flowerettes (1/2 large head), if you cut back the cauliflower you may want to adjust the stock slightly. Serve this with warm buns.
This is a really simple meal that my husband brought back from Hawaii when he was working there 20 years ago. It's one of his all time favaorites. I credit Mrs. Haberman, for turning him on to fruit in a meat dish.
Mom made this for all the occasions, Thanksgiving, Easter, Christmas, sometimes birthday's if we begged loud enough. My baba taught her, so it is traditional, but it is different than the other's posted here. A little sweet, a little lemony. We had it as a side during the big meal (a pallet cleanser), but it is good for breakfast with fruit, light lunch with seafood, and excellent with a sauce.
My mom made these excellent buttery rich cookies. They are a soft cookie that melts in your mouth. They are excellent with any kind of jam but chokecherry or raspberry jelly are my favorites. I don't know how many this makes as I always double the recipe and they get eaten so fast I've never had time to count. Refrigerate the dough for three hours minimum, or make in batches days apart.
This doesn't have the gingersnaps, and we eat it over buttered egg noodles. I can make it in as little as 25 minutes in the pressure cooker, or leave it in the crock pot all day. My family likes it best out of the oven though. Thanks, "Best of Bridge" ladies.
This is from Jean Hoare's cookbook. She is the original owner of the famous Flying Hen Restaurant outside Calgary, Alberta. And this is an excellent cake that is easy to make, it has replaced the traditional pumpkin pie in our house. My son's girlfriend could eat a whole cake herself (at least she claims she could), she once did try. Cooking time=cooling time.
This method was taught to my mom by my paternal "baba" so that her son wouldn't starve after they married. My Ukrainian husband has taken a liking to it and with some compromises we've decided this is the best way. It is different than any other method of making this soup than I've ever seen. It is also very - very good! The list of ingredients is daunting, but the procedure is simple, especially if you don't mind a bit of chopping!
These are filled with the filling my mother used, but the leaves are from my mother in law. There is a nice tang to this cabbage roll, and a bit nicer texture to the filling. It also doesn't have a "dirty rice" look. I hope you all like it.
Another use for mincemeat.
My friend, Dayle, made this for a Sharing Circle evening. I loved it and have made it for the holidays ever since. It sounds strange, but is rich and delicious. This is a big part of our traditional Christmas Eve "fondue" night, cause it's make ahead and ready to serve. You'll want smaller sized servings.
A delightful, easy recipe that I have adapted from one I saw on AllRecipes by Cooking Mama. The sauce is lighter than "Alfredo" so if you're looking for that sort of sauce, you will be sorely disappointed. Any veg can be used, but these are the ones that she recommends, and that I used. I also substituted asiago cheese for the parmesan because that's what I had on hand. I've made this a couple of times, and my DH agrees, this is a keeper.
It incidentally took me longer to post this than it did to make it, there is no measurement on a container of Philadelphia Dip container, so this is a guess and may throw the editing and nutritional values off! lol!
A really easy, delicious chewy drop cookie that uses up the left over rice krispies after krispie treats. I got this from my next door neighbour, Hazel Bloomfield, a former baker. Excellent and carmelly, one of my kids long time favorites.
Another all time household favorite from "the Best of Bridge" series. Going Bananas is an excellent bread, and our fmaily has enjoyed it for years. 12 minutes to mix, and 60 minutes to bake and the rest is history.
I have a neighbour that brings me raspberries from her everbearing bush. There are only so many batches of jam that one can make. This is the best summer drink ever. This recipe came from my sister, a great cook herself.
Another family favorite from the Best of Bridge Collection of Cookbooks. This is a very different cake from any of the others posted in this site, we love the spongy texture of this cake. Somehow, it just hits the spot. It is an excellent cake served warm with whip/ice cream, or served cold and plain! Great for lunch boxes as it holds up when travelling.
This is the decadent version of Easter Bread that I grew up with and that I have made for my family, and that they will make for theirs. My Aunt was married to a nobleman in Spain and used to supply her brother (my dad) and my mom with the saffron for this bread when I was a kid. That was back when the eggs ran free and their yolks were yellow! Remember that? I know, you can get them now but they are so expensive! And saffron, well, needless to say having a coffee can full of money buried in the garden wouldn't hurt for this one! Personally, I save all year for it! And use the coffee can at the end of it all (no-I don't really bury it in the garden!) Try this, you'll love it! Every Easter this is different for me - it's a learning curve I guess. I just know there is no other bread like it!
This is the one our family always wanted, but no one liked it as much as Joel Johnson. He took two of these big cakes home after visiting us one summer, and he helped make them so he could teach his mom. Originally from the "Best of Bridge" cookbooks.
