Family Favorites...Double Quick Dinner Rolls Family Favorites...Double Quick Dinner Rolls By The Iowa Housewife 02/21/14 10:00 This recipe from Betty Crocker Perfect Baking Every Time is a keeper - quick, unfussy - hot homemade yeast rolls with a nice texture and taste for only 52¢ a dozen.

Baked Hush Puppies Baked Hush Puppies By The Iowa Housewife 02/20/14 10:00 Southern Living is one of the best of the Southern Cookbooks. Not the annuals from the magazine which are good, but the cookbooks they print. This recipe for baked hush puppies from the Quick and Easy cookbook was an instant hit at our house. Like the title...
Waikiki Dessert Waikiki Dessert By The Iowa Housewife 02/19/14 10:00 This dessert lives up to the quick and easy tag…my husband made it in minutes. I didn’t even soften the cream cheese first, as he used an electric hand mixer. It tastes like a cross between pudding and cheesecake. The second time we made it we left out...
Mixed Vegetable Sauté Mixed Vegetable Sauté By The Iowa Housewife 02/18/14 10:00 When I served this dish for lunch, my husband said “we have to be sure to plant peppers this spring”.

Poached chicken with wine and mushroom sauce Poached chicken with wine and mushroom sauce By The Iowa Housewife 02/17/14 10:00 The Southern Living Quick and Easy has several quick recipes and many menu ideas.

Family Favorites.... Sweet Potato Pie Family Favorites.... Sweet Potato Pie By The Iowa Housewife 02/14/14 10:00 Well, I have found another of those Do Not Do This At Home things. Last year I made a Sweet Potato pie for Bettie and her boss. They said it was good, but too much like a pumpkin pie. This year I decided to go to the source, who better than a southern cook...

I thought I had the perfect recipe from the Pillsbury Best of Classic Cookbooks . Sue had given me some of her Mexican filling already made and frozen and I had a can of biscuits. Easy right!

Ham Pecan Tossed Salad Ham Pecan Tossed Salad By The Iowa Housewife 02/12/14 10:00 Here’s a beautiful, “special” salad – the caramelized pecans add that extra touch. I made my pecans in a nonstick skillet so cleanup was easy – my advice – don’t use waxed paper for the pecans – use buttered foil so you don’t have any trouble peeling them...
Light Lemon Chicken Light Lemon Chicken By The Iowa Housewife 02/11/14 10:00 I have been looking for a chicken stir fry type of dish for a while now. This type of meal is not among Bettie’s or Lyle’s favorite things to eat, but it is one of mine. This recipe in The Pillsbury The Best of Classic Cookbooks , caught my eye, as it was...

Family Favorites... Savory Pork Roast Family Favorites... Savory Pork Roast By The Iowa Housewife 02/07/14 10:00 Our local store had pork roasts on sale today, so that is what I fixed for supper. The store cut it in half for me, so it was about 3 pounds but it took almost the same amount of time and seasoning. There was some left over so will fix hot pork sandwiches...
Dilly Casserole Bread Dilly Casserole Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/06/14 10:00 Better slices when cool, tastes so good warm The recipe in the Pillsbury The Best of The Classic Cookbooks for Dilly Bread tempted me to try a loaf. I am not a bread baker but this is a batter type bread and done in a casserole. The recipe was a winner...
Carrot Onion Dill Bread Carrot Onion Dill Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/05/14 10:00 When Myrna saw this recipe on my blog work list, she didn’t think it sounded very good – I don’t think she was visualizing yeast bread. We liked this tasty, pretty, savory bread – for sandwiches or as toast. My husband thinks I need to add this to my yeast...
Vegetarian Fried Rice Vegetarian Fried Rice By The Iowa Housewife 02/04/14 10:00 Here’s an easy fried rice recipe that is very much like our favorite Midwestern Oriental restaurant’s – obviously for Midwestern tastes. It is, however, simple to make and tastes good too. Even picky eaters and young children will enjoy this. The brown...

This recipe from the Pillsbury Classic Recipes book could not be any easier. Bette and Lyle both enjoyed it and there are...

Family Favorites...Garden Green Beans with Bacon Family Favorites...Garden Green Beans with Bacon By The Iowa Housewife 01/31/14 10:00 I picked up fall garden green beans from the Farmer’s Market when I made this recipe the first time. I think nice frozen whole green beans would do almost as well – simple and delicious. I was surprised the bacon got crisp after cooking it with the beans...
Bisquick Biscuits Bisquick Biscuits By The Iowa Housewife 01/30/14 10:00 Hot and Buttery While trying to decide what to make with Bisquick , I thought well, what Bisquick does best is biscuits. I don’t make biscuits from scratch, though Sue does, and it is all of 20 years since I have made them for anything but strawberry shortcake,...
