Family Favorites...Salmon with Sour Cream-Mustard Topping Family Favorites...Salmon with Sour Cream-Mustard Topping By The Iowa Housewife 03/28/14 09:00 We love salmon. It’s one of our few little luxuries. We really enjoyed this recipe from "Down Home Cooking” – it was simple – 15 minutes from refrigerator to plate. I broiled this in my Breville toaster oven – it preheats in minutes. The sauce was a simple...
Lemon Yogurt Tea Cakes Lemon Yogurt Tea Cakes By The Iowa Housewife 03/27/14 09:00 Taste of Home’s Baking Favorites has a recipe for Lemon Yogurt Tea Cakes that I made today. Without frosting and just egg whites, they are light and perfect for having with that midmorning cup of tea, or coffee. The egg yolks will go with Bettie’s fried...
Individual Country Grits and Sausage Casseroles Individual Country Grits and Sausage Casseroles By The Iowa Housewife 03/26/14 09:00 Both my husband and I have lived in Texas and Georgia, where cheese grits are considered comfort food. We are happy to be able to buy at least one brand in our Midwestern groceries. We like plain grits with an egg and toast weekend breakfast; this recipe...
Baked Chicken and Rice With Black Beans Baked Chicken and Rice With Black Beans By The Iowa Housewife 03/25/14 09:00 This is a delicious, pretty and nutritious casserole - it bakes while you prepare a salad. If you have big appetites, serve cornbread or French bread too. Choose your favorite beans, cheese and “heat” in your Tomatoes with Green Chilies to make it your...
Old fashioned Almond Pear Cake Old fashioned Almond Pear Cake By The Iowa Housewife 03/24/14 09:00 This is the second of two new recipes I tried this weekend. So nice when both of them worked well. I think this cake from the Taste of Home’s Baking Favorites was a hit with my family as they ate it and asked for seconds. We did have it warm as the recipe...

Family Favorites...Homemade Breakfast Sausage Family Favorites...Homemade Breakfast Sausage By The Iowa Housewife 03/21/14 09:00 This recipe is for those folks who want to know what is in their breakfast sausage. If you have a meat grinder or a food processor, you can grind your own too...pork shoulder is a good choice to grind. I have also used ground lean turkey with this recipe...
Barley with Smoked Ham and Peas Barley with Smoked Ham and Peas By The Iowa Housewife 03/20/14 09:00 My husband really enjoyed this dish…”Everything we like”. You can also use ‘Quick barley’…cook it about 15-20 minutes – it makes the same amount as the pearl barley. We eat this as a main dish with a nice salad, maybe with a little protein like cheese in...
Sloppy Joes Southern Style Sloppy Joes Southern Style By The Iowa Housewife 03/19/14 09:00 Sloppy Joe's come in many different versions. This version from the Southern Living Homestyle cookbook is different than any I had tried before. The addition of sweet pickle relish must, I think, be a southern thing. I would start out with 1 tablespoon...
Microwave Pralines Microwave Pralines By The Iowa Housewife 03/18/14 09:00 I learned to like pralines when I lived in Texas, and can’t go to New Orleans without buying too many. I had never tried pralines in the microwave before, but since I have a fairly new high wattage microwave, I thought I would try these. We liked this recipe...
Honey Roasted Peanut Crisps Honey Roasted Peanut Crisps By The Iowa Housewife 03/17/14 09:00 Peanuts are something I associate with the South. When I saw the recipe for Honey Roasted Peanut Crisps in the Southern Living Homestyle Cooking , I knew I would have to try them. I have made cookies with peanuts before, but these call for Honey Roasted...

Family Favorites...Amish Apple Pie Family Favorites...Amish Apple Pie By The Iowa Housewife 03/14/14 09:00 I had four Honey Crisp apples to use up and thought I would try this apple pie recipe. The introduction said it was the best apple pie around. Well, I don’t know that I would go that far, but I must say that is is quite good. It is a different tasting pie...
Macaroni and Cheese Macaroni and Cheese By The Iowa Housewife 03/13/14 09:00 Just for Lyle and Bettie, Macaroni au Gratin. This is not a favorite of mine, and since I can’t eat it, that is not a problem. However, when I want to treat them, this is always a dish I can make. Creamy and the crumbs give you a nice brown crust This recipe...
Broccoli and Orange Salad Broccoli and Orange Salad By The Iowa Housewife 03/12/14 09:00 I had everything on hand for this pretty, delicious salad…just had to make it! This isn't a new idea, but the oranges and almonds update it. When I make it again, I will probably cut the onions in half before slicing. The dressing is just right; and when...
Pecan Mini-Muffins Pecan Mini-Muffins By The Iowa Housewife 03/11/14 09:00 The recipe for Pecan Mini-Muffins in the Southern Living HomeStyle Cookbook claims that these muffins taste like Pecan Tassies. I don’t know that I really agree with that, as I think they are good enough to stand alone and not as a substitute for anything....
Oatmeal Honey Bread Oatmeal Honey Bread By The Iowa Housewife 03/10/14 09:00 This is a little different from my usual oatmeal bread, with the yogurt. I changed the directions to use instant or rapid-rise yeast. Luckily, I had a 7 ½” loaf pan because I use it for my husband’s favorite lemon nut quick bread. This is a nice sandwich-style...

Family Favorites...Velvet Custard Pie Family Favorites...Velvet Custard Pie By The Iowa Housewife 03/07/14 10:00 Custard pie is one of my personal favorites and this is a very good recipe, the author claims that this pie will not weep or bead up. Scalding the milk before using does help with this. According to the Joy of Cooking , to scald milk, heat in a heavy pan...
