Family Favorites - Tropical Cheesecake Family Favorites - Tropical Cheesecake By The Iowa Housewife 07/19/13 10:00 Read the recipe all the way through and have everything ready before you start. This makes a good cheesecake for warm weather as you do not have to turn your oven on. The microwave will work to bake the crust. Needless to say, do not use a metal pan in...
Rio Grande Rice Rio Grande Rice By The Iowa Housewife 07/18/13 10:00 Once again, the Cheap, Fast, Good cookbook lived up to its name. Rice is very inexpensive and I had the left over salsa and a container of shredded cheese and some black olives in the refrigerator. That is about all I needed to make the Rio Grande Rice...
Great Granola Great Granola By The Iowa Housewife 07/17/13 10:00 Unlike Sue’s family, we are not granola eaters. I tried this recipe for Great Granola from the Cheap, Fast, Good cookbook and thought it was something I would eat and make again. The recipe was inexpensive to make, easy to put together and we all ate it....
Enchiladas Enchiladas By The Iowa Housewife 07/16/13 10:00 This is a good recipe to use the Mexican filling from this cookbook. We liked the beans and rice in the filling – I usually keep extra cooked rice in the freezer, and I used it for this recipe. That made assembling the enchiladas very quick right before...
Taco Seasoning Mix Taco Seasoning Mix By The Iowa Housewife 07/15/13 10:30 I don’t like to store little packets of seasoning I might not use again soon, so I use this mix for taco seasoning. It’s from the great cookbook, Make a Mix. Taco Seasoning Mix 2 Teaspoons Instant Minced Onion 1 Teaspoon Salt 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder ½ Teaspoon...
Flexible Mexican Filling Flexible Mexican Filling By The Iowa Housewife 07/15/13 10:00 We like enchiladas and other Mexican-flavored foods, so I thought I would give this recipe a try from Cheap, Fast, Good! The issue of the book I have had a typo in this recipe, so I checked online and sure enough, the authors had a corrected recipe online...
Sunday in Iowa Sunday in Iowa By The Iowa Housewife 07/14/13 10:00 At Don and Bonnie's homestead, the cherry picking is almost done. They had great cherries this year, canning pie filling and sharing cherries with her sister's family. Bonnie's Mom planted this tree - along with grapes, rhubarb, and asparagus, to help feed...
Homemade Salad Dressing Tips Homemade Salad Dressing Tips By The Iowa Housewife 07/13/13 10:00 This is salad season here in Iowa – we always make our own salad dressing. It’s so expensive in those little bottles, and so full of stuff you don’t really want to eat! Making your own is really, really easy, from ingredients most of us already have. If...
Family Favorites - Chocolate Marble Loaf Family Favorites - Chocolate Marble Loaf By The Iowa Housewife 07/12/13 10:00 This is a pound cake-like loaf. Without frosting, it carries easily to picnics and reunions. It freezes very well; I slip 2 slices apiece into small freezer bags so they thaw while you make coffee. This is my personal favorite cake ; I found the recipe...
Southern Coleslaw Southern Coleslaw By The Iowa Housewife 07/11/13 10:00 We are not big fans of coleslaw so when the authors of the Cheap, Fast, Good claimed that if you did not like coleslaw that this was the recipe to use, we tried it. I have to agree that it is a tasty slaw. Not a heavy overdone dressing and the slaw stayed...
Chicken and Green Bean Casserole Chicken and Green Bean Casserole By The Iowa Housewife 07/10/13 10:00 I made this recipe from the cookbook Cheap, Fast, Good for Bettie and Lyle. Imagine my surprise when I liked it. I detest green bean casserole and this is based on that iconic recipe. Every recipe I have tried from this book has been very good so I guess...
Chicken Caesar Salad Chicken Caesar Salad By The Iowa Housewife 07/09/13 10:00 This is one of our favorite salads when we eat out. This one from "Fast, Cheap, Good!” was so good, I guess I’ll have to choose something else, as I’ll be making this at home again. The dressing is certainly better than bottled dressing, and whipped up...
Perfect Poached Chicken Perfect Poached Chicken By The Iowa Housewife 07/08/13 10:00 Have you found yourself buying expensive precooked frozen chicken cubes? This recipe from "Fast, cheap, good" is so easy you’ll never do it again. I actually got more cooked chicken than their recipe suggested – usually 1 cup of cooked chicken is about...
Sunday in Iowa Sunday in Iowa By The Iowa Housewife 07/07/13 10:00 The Tasty Freeze in Marshalltown Iowa Our son took this photo of this iconic Iowa institution still in business in Marshalltown, complete with the neon-outlined ice cream cone Reminded him of the one that has disappeared from our home town, although almost...
Cheap. Fast. Good Cheap. Fast. Good By The Iowa Housewife 07/06/13 10:00 Cheap. Fast. Good! Is an encyclopedia of good ideas for eating well but in a thrifty way. It’s up-to-date for younger cooks, but we found plenty to recommend it as well. This is a book I would consider for a wedding or shower gift depending on the couple....
Family Favorites - Lemon Cream Wafers Family Favorites - Lemon Cream Wafers By The Iowa Housewife 07/05/13 10:00 These pretty, dainty “tea” cookies simply melt in your mouth. They are a cross between butter pie crust and shortbread with a tangy filling. They are a nice addition to a cookie plate. Versions of these cookies are in many older cookbooks. This recipe is...
Upside-down Plum Cake Upside-down Plum Cake By The Iowa Housewife 07/04/13 10:00 Summer time is plum time Since they are a favorite of ours, I try to use them often. This cake is a good way to use plums. Any of the plums work, red or purple or black. I had red plums left from a jam making session so made this cake for dessert. It is...
Salami Pasta Salad Salami Pasta Salad By The Iowa Housewife 07/03/13 10:00 Here’s a quick pasta recipe we like. My husband made this for the photo – it’s that easy. I did add a little shredded fresh basil to the dressing – or a little dry Italian seasoning is good too. I usually have the tomatoes and peppers in my pot garden in...
Tortellini, Broccoli and Blue Cheese Salad Tortellini, Broccoli and Blue Cheese Salad By The Iowa Housewife 07/02/13 10:00 Here’s a pretty salad from "Land O Lakes Occasionally Vegetarian” that has everything we like in it! Delicious cheese filled tortellini, crisp broccoli, pretty red onion, blue cheese (I had some extra-good Gorgonzola) – and a simple dressing. I didn’t have...
Green Tomato Salsa Green Tomato Salsa By The Iowa Housewife 07/01/13 10:00 Green Tomatoes on your tomato plants yet? I have about 30 green tomatoes. I really didn’t want to lose the tomatoes and decided to make some green tomato salsa. This is not out of any of the recipe books we are using as none of the recipes where quite what...
