Herbed Leg of Lamb Herbed Leg of Lamb By The Iowa Housewife 01/02/14 10:00 Cooked to medium rare Lamb is one of my favorite meats. Bettie and Lyle will eat it but not a favorite of theirs.

English Muffin Bread English Muffin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/31/13 10:00 I've looked at recipes for English muffin bread for years and never tried them…I don’t know why, because one of the only bread products I ever buy ready-made is English muffins.

Tuna Mushroom Casserole Tuna Mushroom Casserole By The Iowa Housewife 12/30/13 10:00 This isn’t your usual tuna noodle casserole with a can of cream soup – this one has green beans, mushrooms, celery and garlic and Swiss cheese in the easy sauce.

Cornmeal Muffins Cornmeal Muffins By The Iowa Housewife 12/26/13 10:30 Leftover Ham at our house, means navy bean soup. Of course navy bean soup means cornbread. Bettie being raised in Oklahoma likes hers crusty and thin, Lyle and I are from Minnesota and like Northern cornbread, not thin and not crusty. I try to change off...

Peppermint Sandies with White Chocolate Glaze Peppermint Sandies with White Chocolate Glaze By The Iowa Housewife 12/18/13 10:00 This recipe looked like a winner, but I had to make it twice, modifying it the second time, to make it something we loved.
