I came up with this combination as a teen and it has always been my favorite. You can use any salad dressing of your choice and top with boiled eggs, sunflower seeds, cheese, croutons, bacon bits or whatever you choose. My preference with this one...just serve it like it is. The juices from the tomatoes are all the dressing I require! It is very colorful, light and refreshing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
This was my first effort at 'Creative Cooking' as a young girl. Not knowing that it was my creation, Mom was so excited about how good this was that she immediately wanted to know from which of her cookbooks I'd found this recipe. Going through my recipe file has brought back another pleasant memory!
Thanksgiving and Christmas just wouldn't be the same for us without lots of cranberry dishes. I made this for Thanksgiving about 14 years ago for the first time and it's been in demand for every family Thanksgiving gathering since. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
This is in response to a request on the boards. I haven't tried it yet, but can't wait until my young peach tree starts producing. This is the first jam recipe I've found that didn't require additional pectin (apparently peaches are high in pectin themselves). Cooking time includes processing time only.
This was also posted as a request on the boards. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to when our young peach tree starts producing in the next year or two. I think this would work with or without the rum. Cook time includes processing time only.
This is in response to a request on the boards. I haven't tried it yet, but it's making my taste buds water. Can't wait for my blueberries to produce enough fruit so I can make this. Cook time includes processing of filled jars only.
This recipe is being posted in response to a request on the boards. I haven't made it yet. I'm really glad this request came up because it sounds delicious and I just know I'm going to have to make it myself now. Cook time includes processing time only.
This recipe is in response to a request for the Betty Crocker (1950-1960) version of the cake. I have tried to retain the authenticity of the period, hence the repetition of the ingredient amounts throughout the recipe. I hope you enjoy it. Mom used to make this one sometimes too!
This is a recipe I got from True Story magazine years and years ago. I forgot I had this, but it's in my favorites file so I know I thought it was really good at one time (or I wouldn't have bothered to write it out). Hope you enjoy it!
This recipe came from "The Farmers Almanac Blue Ribbon Recipes" cookbook, used for a pumpkin pie. I used it last night to make Bev's Chocolate Chip Pie. It turned out great. It can be prebaked for a cream-filled pie, or unbaked for a pie that must go into the oven. You could use this recipe as an alternative to just about any "crumb crust". Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Years ago I demonstrated for "Christmas Around the World". One of my hostesses served this to her guests and it was a really big hit! Obviously, I asked for the recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
This is in response to a post on the boards. It is our favorite Tapioca Pudding. It is time consuming, so DH doesn't get it very often...and when he does, it doesn't last long at all. In fact, if it's been a really long time, he'll eat it himself in one sitting...thank goodness the Chef has the opportunity to "taste test"! ;-)) Prep time does not include soaking pearls overnight.
