This comes from my grandmother's shoebox of recipes -- and it is good! Perfect in the winter with a nice green salad and plenty of crusty bread. This makes a huge pot -- I usually freeze some to have on hand for a quick dinner. I have also added leftover corn or green beans to this and it is still fabulous. It is not a lot of work -- just the simmering takes some time. But it is worth it.
Can you stand another meatloaf recipe? I saw this being made on a tv show -- but was vacuuming and didn't catch all the ingredients. So, I adapted my own (rather, my mother's) recipe and came up with this. My husband will not eat meatloaf any other way!
A co-worker brought this into a work luncheon and I begged her for the recipe after tasting it. She drizzled the slices with an orange syrup, but she didn't give me that recipe. I think it could be made by combing 2 tbsp of orange juice with enough powdered sugar to make a drizzable icing.
When my Nana passed away a few years ago, I was lucky enough to receive her shoebox of recipes. Some were clipped from magazines and some were handwritten. Almost all had some handwritten note on them. I remember these cookies - almost alway made in the fall when her apples were ripe. I don't think the apples were peeled before shredding.

I am posting some that I remember. I don't actually remember this one, but my father assures me that it was one of his favorites.
This one is a little different. It is supposed to be a copycat recipe of the Texas Lunch's hot dog sauce from Central Pennsylvania. It is not even close to their sauce -- but still, very tasty. Do not let the long simmer time scare you off -- it is worth it.
