Family Favorites...Country Ham Steak with Glazed Apples Family Favorites...Country Ham Steak with Glazed Apples By The Iowa Housewife 01/24/14 10:00 Don and Bonnie gave us some beautiful ham steak from the last hog they had processed at the Leighton Locker in Leighton, Iowa. I couldn’t pass up this Land O'Lakes recipe for ham steak with apples. I loved the sauce and the apples with the ham – not too...
Western Sandwiches Western Sandwiches By The Iowa Housewife 01/23/14 10:00 This delicious sandwich is a version of the “Denver” sandwich that is really an easy omelet served as a sandwich. I have a glass lid for my skillet, so I can see how it looks, but the eggs set right up, even if they don’t look set until you touch them....
Herbed Orange Rice Herbed Orange Rice By The Iowa Housewife 01/22/14 10:00 Once again, we tried a new rice recipe for supper. The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook had a recipe for Herbed Orange Rice that I wanted to try. I had one orange left and it was not quite enough orange juice and I made up the amount with water. It...
Skillet Macaroni and Cheese Skillet Macaroni and Cheese By The Iowa Housewife 01/21/14 10:00 Myrna and I must have been on the same wavelength this week - we both made macaroni and cheese. Here’s a simple way to make macaroni and cheese without a mix or an oven, with only one pan to wash. My husband refused to have olives in his macaroni and cheese,...
Baked Macaroni and Cheese Baked Macaroni and Cheese By The Iowa Housewife 01/20/14 10:00 I made Macaroni and Cheese tonight. As this is something I rarely fix, the recipe in the Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook was a helpful recipe. They give you the step by step directions, with great illustrations to go with it. If you are a beginning...
Sunday in Iowa Sunday in Iowa By The Iowa Housewife 01/19/14 10:00 This unusual very large barn is between Pulaski and Bloomfield on Iowa Highway 2
Family Favorites - Cream Puffs Family Favorites - Cream Puffs By The Iowa Housewife 01/17/14 10:00 Cream Puffs are not normally thought of as Puff Pastry, but are quite easy to make. You can vary the size, shape and fillings to suit the menu you have in mind. The ones I made today are filled with a Orange Cream Cheese and Whipped Cream filling. I drizzled...
Zesty Tangelo Salad Zesty Tangelo Salad By The Iowa Housewife 01/16/14 10:00 We love salad, and tangelos are even available in our small Midwestern town this time of year. We like Clementines just as well, and they had those too. Romaine and celery are also abundant and reasonably priced, and the pimiento is pretty and tasty, so...
Orange Muffins Orange Muffins By The Iowa Housewife 01/15/14 10:00 Muffins are one of the easier quick breads to make. I make them much more often than biscuits and they were one of the things I learned how to make in Home Ec classes, many years ago. Our teacher, who Sue had also, was one of the best teachers I had, and...
Baked Eggs Baked Eggs By The Iowa Housewife 01/14/14 10:00 Baked eggs are great to serve for more than one or two people. Everyone gets their eggs at the same time and in their own dish. No need to stand there watching eggs and having to turn them for easy over. This method in the Good Housekeeping Illustrated...
Shrimp Stuffed Roll Ups Shrimp Stuffed Roll Ups By The Iowa Housewife 01/13/14 10:00 This is a wonderful special dinner entrée, I made it for Christmas dinner. In our area, both sole and shrimp are expensive, but this dish is worth every penny. You need thin fillets like sole to make the rollups, and the shrimp and mushroom filling is excellent....

Braunschweiger Spread Braunschweiger Spread By The Iowa Housewife 01/10/14 10:00 My son made and brought this braunschweiger (or liver sausage) spread or dip to a Christmas party, and it was a big hit. They live in East Dubuque, and he says it is served on every restaurant buffet around there. Bettie has seen it on her country club...
Sesame Wheat Braids Sesame Wheat Braids By The Iowa Housewife 01/09/14 10:00 We like light whole wheat breads, and these pretty loaves are a little twist on my usual sandwich loaves. The eggs make a richer loaf, and the salad oil makes the baked loaves softer and lighter than butter or shortening. The sesame seeds are a nice topping…you...
Jambalaya Jambalaya By The Iowa Housewife 01/08/14 10:00 This is my idea of a win-win recipe. I had some shrimp languishing in the fridge, some fire-roasted tomatoes I needed to use, and I always, always have all the rest of the ingredients for this recipe on hand – they are that basic in our kitchen. To top...
Tomato Basil Soup Tomato Basil Soup By The Iowa Housewife 01/07/14 10:00 I had ordered Tomato Basil soup at Village Inn in Des Moines. It was quite good and I decided to see if I could come up with a recipe that was doable with my Celiac and Bettie’s newly diagnosed Diabetes. Since I should not have flour and of course she needs...
Dilly Ham Balls Dilly Ham Balls By The Iowa Housewife 01/06/14 10:00 If you’re not a fan of any of the sweet glazed ham ball recipes, this one may be for you. It substitutes a sour cream sauce, similar to one I often use on regular meat balls. Use good ham for this…I always choose ham that says “no water added” for more...

Saturdays Saturdays By The Iowa Housewife 01/04/14 10:00 Well, the holidays are over, and Myrna and I have decided we’re cleaning up and then taking a break this year from blogging on Saturdays. We have reviewed LOTS of cookbooks, and are still addicted to them, but we’ve found we don’t want to be confined to...
Oven Baked Asparagus Oven Baked Asparagus By The Iowa Housewife 01/03/14 10:00 Asparagus is one of my least liked vegetables. In fact, I won’t eat it. However, Lyle and Bettie are very fond of it. When I was looking for ways to fix it, the Taste of Home Country Cooking had several recipes. This one looked so simple and foolproof that...
