Strawberry Almond Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette Strawberry Almond Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette By The Iowa Housewife 05/06/14 10:00 This is a pretty side salad. If you are not familiar with Balsamic vinegar, this is a good recipe to try. The vinegar itself is very dark, unless you buy “white” balsamic vinegar, but the vinegar is less tangy than white or cider vinegar, so it’s good with...
Cashew Pear Tossed Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette Cashew Pear Tossed Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette By The Iowa Housewife 05/05/14 12:31 This salad dressing recipe is the reason I never buy bottled dressings, full of preservatives, any more. It is fresh and delicious and really easy to make in a small food processor – although a wire whisk does the trick too. If you have a processor, combine...

Family Favorites...Golden Peach Pie from canned peaches Family Favorites...Golden Peach Pie from canned peaches By The Iowa Housewife 05/02/14 12:48 This recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens 1962 cookbook uses canned Peaches. I used it for years as we lived out in the country on Lake Superior when I was a young house wife. No fresh peaches to be had, anywhere. The nearest town was nine miles away...
Mushroom, Asparagus and Pepper Quiche Mushroom, Asparagus and Pepper Quiche By The Iowa Housewife 05/01/14 10:00 Now this is a good recipe for quiche, from "Robin Hood Baking." I used Fontina, instead of Swiss cheese, as I had some on hand. How did I get asparagus and red pepper at the same time? I used frozen peppers from last year’s garden. I also used mushrooms...
Sage Bread Sage Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/30/14 10:00 This bread recipe won a blue ribbon at the huge Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa for Janice Nostrom of Humbolt. I can see why – it smells heavenly while baking and needs nothing more than butter to be delicious. It was great with a pasta salad, for sandwiches...
Creamy Pear Pie Creamy Pear Pie By The Iowa Housewife 04/29/14 10:00 Eric kindly lent us his cookbook, America’s Hometown Recipe Book . Among the recipes I am trying was this recipe for pear pie. I usually have pears on hand as we all like them and while I did alter this slightly, it is very close to the original recipe....
Streusel-Topped Lemon Tart Streusel-Topped Lemon Tart By The Iowa Housewife 04/28/14 10:00 Sliced in small pieces This is a good recipe for a lemon tart that is different from several I have made. The streusel topping is quite different, and the filling is similar to lemon bars. If you do not have a springform pan, this might be the time to buy...

Family Favorites..,Lazy Day Lasagna Family Favorites..,Lazy Day Lasagna By The Iowa Housewife 04/25/14 10:00 Clockwise, bottom left: Ready for the oven, baked, 5 ingredients, ready to eat. This may be the first lasagna recipe you tasted – a classic from the Better Homes & Gardens 1968 plaid cookbook. It’s not Italian lasagna – it’s really American lasagna. It’s...
Caramel Crunch Corn Caramel Crunch Corn By The Iowa Housewife 04/24/14 10:00 This recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen Favorites is one of my favorites. The caramel corn does not have to be baked in the oven after the syrup is poured on and I think it is more of a almond toffee taste. The addition of the sliced...
Butter Pecan Ice Cream Butter Pecan Ice Cream By The Iowa Housewife 04/23/14 10:00 Here’s a different recipe for ice cream – with brown sugar in the ice cream base and caramelized pecans stirred in. The pecans are easy to make in a non-stick skillet; just be sure you don’t let it burn. I simply broke my pecans into quarters or so. You...
Raspberry Almond Tassies Raspberry Almond Tassies By The Iowa Housewife 04/22/14 10:00 Raspberries and almonds are among my favorite flavors and foods so this was a easy choice for me to bake. The Better Homes and Garden’s Test Kitchen Favorites uses these two flavors in Raspberry Almond Tassies. With a butter crust, which rolled out beautifully...
Homemade Beef and Noodles Homemade Beef and Noodles By The Iowa Housewife 04/21/14 10:00 We never had a large family meal at my mother-in-law’s without beef and homemade noodles, unless we had chicken and homemade noodles. The first time I made them for a crowd, my sister-in-law Dixie helped me make them using her grandmother’s recipe – we...

Family Favorites...Oven Barbecued Ribs Family Favorites...Oven Barbecued Ribs By The Iowa Housewife 04/18/14 10:00 Since I really, really do not like to BBQ outdoors, this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book Gold Souvenir Edition , has always been a favorite of mine. My family likes it quite well and I have been making it for better than 40 years....
Braised Chicken Thighs, Pancetta and Sherry Braised Chicken Thighs, Pancetta and Sherry By The Iowa Housewife 04/17/14 10:00 Ready to Serve When you have 4 boneless chicken thighs and some Iowa Pancetta, thanks Sue, and not a recipe that was really what you wanted, this is the result. I took two recipes one from the internet and one from a Fine Cooking magazine and came up with...
Classic Rich Bread Classic Rich Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/16/14 10:00 I bake bread regularly, and this is an old recipe from the "Red Star Yeast Centennial Bread Sampler 1981" that I have been making probably since the book came out. It makes a nice, golden, fine-grained sandwich loaf that’s perfect for toast. It's really...
Chicken Imperial Chicken Imperial By The Iowa Housewife 04/15/14 10:00 I love the photo index in the "Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook" – the recipe photo for this recipe caught my eye. It’s beautiful, delicious and oh so tender. I flatten my chicken breasts a little, and then the cooking time is about 10 minutes total....
Flemish Carbonade Flemish Carbonade By The Iowa Housewife 04/14/14 10:00 This is a version of Flemish Carbonade. Several years ago, our older sister Kay who lived most of her married life in Texas, gave me some Texas cookbooks. In one of them was a very simple version of Flemish Carbonade. While I am sure that American Test...
