Cold Weather Recipes

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

It’s cold outside and now would be a good time to have a nice warm treat.  Maybe a slice of warm homemade bread or a cup of tea and a handful of quick no bake cookies.  The first recipe is my Grandma Lawson’s Cottage Cheese Bread.  And no, it doesn’t taste like cottage cheese. Another […]

Chicken (or Turkey) Tetrazzini

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

I plan on making a batch of this for some freezer meals this week.  This recipe was given to me by a friend, Terry Martin, when we were at OBC together.  Three families from my local church made the trek from Indiana to Joplin, MO to attend Bible college.  There was Jim and Paulette and […]

Diet Chili

Friday, December 5th, 2008

One of my comfort foods when it gets cold is chili.  I can’t make chili just for a couple people.  No matter what I do, I always end up with a huge kettle full by the time I quit adding ingredients.  But that’s okay.  Chili is always better the second day and it freezes well. […]

More Kitchen Travels

Today we are once again traveling back to the kitchen for more freezer cooking.  I’m going to give you a few recipes to try out for your freezer meals. This is another freezer prep day for me. The first recipe is one from my OBC years.  It’s Florence Douglas’s Chicken Pie.  The second is Sheila […]

Preparing for the Holidays

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

Take a break from your sewing and spend a couple days baking.  Get the baked goods out of the way early.  You can freeze cookies and pies prior to baking.  You can also freeze them after they’re baked and then when Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, you’re ahead of the game.  Here’s a few recipes […]

Covered Bridge Bonus

Friday, October 17th, 2008

I’m sharing two of the recipes that I used for my Covered Bridge Festival baking.  My grandmother mostly baked pies, but I was the cookie and bread queen.  These cookies were big sellers.  They were not the run of the mill cookies. Most first time visitors had never tasted them before.  Especially the persimmon.  PERSIMMON […]

Apple Bread

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

This is another one of my “I don’t have a clue as to where I got it” recipes.  I may not remember it’s origins, but I certainly do remember how good it tastes, especially on a chilly October day in Indiana. APPLE BREAD 1 cup salad oil 2 cups diced, peeled apples 1 cup chopped […]

This recipe is for Oatmeal Pie.  I’ve had it around since the seventies, but don’t remember where it originally came from.  This tastes like pecan pie, but without the cost of the pecans. OATMEAL PIE 2 eggs, beaten 3/4 cup quick oats 3/4 cup flake coconut 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup margarine 3/4 cup syrup Combine […]

The Frost Is On The Pumpkin

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Not really, but it will be soon.  Pumpkins are part of our autumn season.  Harvest. Halloween. Thanksgiving.  The Rockville Covered Bridge Festival.  Today I’m going to share two of my recipes for pumpkin bread.  These recipes are from the ladies of Casa Grande, Arizona.  These come from the book that my friend Jeannie Vestal gave […]
