A childhood favorite dish of my husband's. It's always a treat to him when I make this and it's really easy!! You can add green peppers and more seasonings if you'd like - the recipe is the way my mother in law made it for my husband and I tend to make it this way as well.
I named this recipe after my mother in law (who is 90 years old) and father in law's street that they grew up on. Their mothers made these beans and they are my husbands family favorites - not many holidays go by without someone making this recipe! This recipe is usually tripled for a family event! A German influence for sure!
This is our family's favorite recipe for lasagna. It is a hearty dish and does not have ricotta cheese in the recipe and features lots of yummy mozzarella. I use Recipe #68017 for the Italian Seasoning in this recipe. We serve it with salad topped with Recipe #18840 and garlic bread.
Found this on the Women's Day site - sounded like a good winter salad but I couldn't find the Boursin Cheese so I adapted this to be "user friendly". The 'home made" version of the Boursin cheese needs to be made a day ahead of time. The prep time does not include the Boursin cheese refrigeration time.
From Taste of Home. Easy because it uses crescent rolls rather than pie crust. I have had this posted on my refrigerator door since last March - thought I should finally post it on Zaar and get if off my refrigerator!
The traditional birthday cake in our family. The cherries are a nice surprise when you take a bite of this chocolate cake. I add any nuts I have on hand but almonds are my personal favorite! When making a layer cake be sure to use parchment paper or the layers will break when you try to flip them out.
This recipe has been in our family for years. It's one of my favorites for sure. I pipe these with flowers and leaves from decorator icing and they always look so special. These cookies are so tender they melt in your mouth!
These are a family tradition - keep the dough chilled and roll out using enough flour to keep the dough from sticking. These turn out flaky and crisp. You can omit the nutmeg and use a little more vanilla. Baking time varies depending on the size of the cookie.
Hearty and healthy soup that's quick to put together. I used the chicken/prosciutto tortellini but you can use whatever tortellini is your favorite. Serve with garlic bread and you've got a filling lunch or dinner in minutes!
From TOH - My dd and ds made this recipe for my birthday dinner several years ago and has become a family favorite. A "must" for Thanksgiving dinner! We use either Butternut or Acorn squash for this dish. The combination of cranberries, almonds and squash is amazing!
From City Tavern in Philadelphia. The ancestor of this punch was the famous Philadelphia Fish House Punch. Originating in the 1750s in Philadelphia frequented by seafarers. It soon spread throughout Colonial Society.
A nice and easy potato veggie combo that is a perfect side dish for chicken, beef or pork. I use fresh broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini for the mixed veggies. I found this recipe in a newspaper food section back in the early '80s.
I like to put crock pot meals together early in the afternoon so that I can turn on the crock pots and go run errands, set the table, etc. and be ready and relaxed when my guests arrive. After trying different methods for making wild rice mixes - I think I hit on the right timing and water to get the rice to turn out just right. I don't know if you'd really want to call this a recipe -- maybe just a crock pot tip????
