This is another old family recipe that I grew up eating and love to cook now. I began working at a grocery store when I was 16 (many, many years ago :-) ) That was the first that I ever knew you could buy noodles! My mom had always made them from scratch! These are a great side dish simply cooked in the boullion or broth or a great meal when cooked with cooked chicken, turkey, or beef. (Note: Preparation time does not include drying time).
This is a family-favorite recipe from a church cookbook. I have tailored it a bit to make it a healthier version! I use butter spray instead of margarine, 98% fat-free mushroom soup, and low-fat or fat-free cheese.
This is an easy and fun way to make omelets. Everyone can have exactally what their tastebuds desire in their omelet. We added other ingredients such as ham and cheese. You don't have to use these specific ingredients. Be creative and add whatever you would like to your omelet. My mother-in-law sent it to me to try and it is a family favorite.
This is a delightful fruit salad that always draws rave reviews anytime I fix it at home or take it to showers or carry-ins. The "secret ingredient" is a box of instant French Vanilla pudding! You really can substitute fresh fruits for canned or frozen or visa versa, so I'm going to list the combination that I usually use. Any time I use canned fruits, I use them in their own juice, and you can substitute sugar free pudding as well.
If you've ever had the cheese soup at the Folklife Festival in Hannibal, MO, this is the recipe! It's a delicious and hearty soup. The recipe doesn't call for meat, but you could add cooked chicken if you want it.
This is a delicious peach cake that can be made as a sugar-free recipe. The cake bakes with the peaches on top and a wonderful cream cheese mixture on top of peaches.It's great while it's still warm or cooled down!
This is a wonderful "company" dessert. The puff pastry crust is light, and you may choose any flavor of pudding for the filling.It looks like you spent hours working on it, yet it is fairly easy and delicious!
These cookies were my favorites when I was growing up. My mom would have cookies waiting for me after I'd get home from school. These are now a big hit with my family, and my husband likes them so much that he learned how to make them himself so he doesn't have to wait on me!
This is the meat sauce I grew up eating. I now make it for my family, and it is great on any pasta, but we usually eat it on spaghetti. I usually double the recipe when I make it. It freezes well too for those that do OAMC.
This old-fashioned tapioca pudding recipe came from my great-great-grandmother. I come from a long line of chocoholics, and I truly didn't know that tapioca pudding normally wasn't chocolate until I got married!!
