While preparing dinner for my family one night I thought a fruit salad would be a nice touch. But the only fruit I had on hand was fruit cocktail and mandarin orange slices. After draining the fruit I had to come up with a dressing for it. I combined parts of 2 recipes I found in Southern Living Cookbook and adapted them with some of my own additions until I had the taste and consistency that I thought it should be.
This is a recipe I got from a friend at work many years ago. If you like chili you will love this. It goes equally well with crackers or cornbread. In a pinch I have used alphabet soup when the store did not have minestrone, tastes just as good.
I was looking for something different for dinner one night and came across this recipe in Taste of Home's Cooking for 1 or 2. In preparing this recipe I did make some adaptions to suit my taste and my cookware. It suited my mother and myself just fine. I served this warm with a side of cottage cheese and a hot biscuit. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
I wanted a pasta salad for Sunday lunch and didn't have the ingredients for my usual pasta salad, so I improvised with what I had in my kitchen. My mother and husband where home to try it and we had no left overs.
I got this from a old Mennonite Cookbook that was passed on to me by my late mother in law. I tweaked it just a bit to had more flavor. This is as close to a perfect salisbury steak as I have ever eaten. It has an onion flavor all through it with out having the texture of onions. My grandchildren just loved it.
This is an adaptation of 2 different recipes my mother-in-law used to fix. I took part of each one and added them together one day when I didn't have all the ingredients for just one.Also, I had 3 of my grandchildren the day I made this they loved it. There were no leftovers. .
This is an adapation of Cindi Bauer's Apple Crisp recipe #62131. I didn't want to mess with peeling and slicing apples, so I made a few changes, and here is my version. It comes out more like a cobbler.
