Family Favorites - Pumpkin Bars Family Favorites - Pumpkin Bars By The Iowa Housewife 11/01/13 09:00 My daughter and grandson came over today and moved most of my 400 and some cookbooks and sorted them out for me.

Creamed Turkey Over Rice Creamed Turkey Over Rice By The Iowa Housewife 10/31/13 09:00 Here’s a way to dress up that old favorite – creamed turkey.

Potato Casserole Potato Casserole By The Iowa Housewife 10/30/13 09:00 This is a good potato casserole. The recipe from the Taste of Home Holiday Recipe Card Collection from 2002 was easy to get together and everyone enjoyed it. It has a different flavor from the sour cream, dill weed and Swiss cheese. I am not sure why the...
Cornmeal Yeast Bread Cornmeal Yeast Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/29/13 09:00 This recipe won’t take the place of cornbread, but makes a nice loaf of cornmeal yeast bread.

Maple Cream Bon Bons Maple Cream Bon Bons By The Iowa Housewife 10/28/13 09:00 These are an easy recipe to start learning to make dipped chocolates.

Sunday in Iowa Sunday in Iowa By The Iowa Housewife 10/27/13 09:00 When we took a ride along Highway 92 in Southeastern Iowa, we saw these horses in the pasture.

Working with Chocolate Working with Chocolate By The Iowa Housewife 10/26/13 10:00 A better way to melt chocolate Sue asked me to tell you a little about working with chocolate. I find that it really is one of the things that is fussier than you would think. Melting it is one of the easy yet hard to do things. It must be melted at low...
Family Favorites - Mom's Pumpkin Pie Family Favorites - Mom's Pumpkin Pie By The Iowa Housewife 10/25/13 10:00 Baked a pumpkin pie today as the weather has cooled down a little.

Lemon Meringue Pie Lemon Meringue Pie By The Iowa Housewife 10/24/13 10:00 I made lemon pie last week and realized that we had never posted it on the blog.

Herbed Tomato Bread Herbed Tomato Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/23/13 10:00 This recipe was originally for a bread machine.

I believe next...
Bite Sized Fruitcakes Bite Sized Fruitcakes By The Iowa Housewife 10/22/13 10:00 I am really not a fan of fruit cake, but these looked like they might be worth trying.

Sour Cream Lemon Bread Sour Cream Lemon Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/21/13 10:00 I’m a bread baker, so I had to try this different lemon and sour cream flavored yeast bread. The recipe is for a bread machine (follow your machine directions for sweet dough); so it only makes a small 1 pound loaf. One large lemon is enough for this recipe....

Peas, Carrots and Mushrooms Peas, Carrots and Mushrooms By The Iowa Housewife 10/17/13 10:00 This is a delicious, very pretty vegetable presentation.

In the same saucepan, I cooked...
