 Tropical  Fruit Bread "Tropical" Fruit Bread By The Iowa Housewife 01/27/14 10:00 Myrna and I rarely use Bisquick, but we found a couple of nice cookbooks from them, and bought some mix to share and to try the recipes this week. This is a delicious quick bread with a nice texture– it really should be called “tropical” fruit bread, with...
Cottage Cheese Ring for Fruit Salad Cottage Cheese Ring for Fruit Salad By The Iowa Housewife 09/11/13 10:00 The Fan Fare cookbook has many recipes for entertaining…we liked this one. It reminded me of something our Mom would have made, and I liked the idea of a way to serve cottage cheese on a buffet table or as a salad plate. I made this in individual molds...
Yogurt Fruit Salad Yogurt Fruit Salad By The Iowa Housewife 06/10/13 10:00 This salad from the “Taste of Home Farmer's Market Cookbook ” is light, fresh and delicious. It is certainly easy, too. That said, I thought it was a very expensive recipe with what I consider “luxury” ingredients. I purchased my cherries and nuts from...
Family Favorites - Frosted Fruit Mold Family Favorites - Frosted Fruit Mold By The Iowa Housewife 05/10/13 10:00 I enjoyed this unique jello salad years ago at a luncheon, but didn’t get the recipe. I found this version in a magazine and still have the clipping in my file, although I don’t know what magazine it is from. The contributor was Mrs. Peter Nanni of Rockford,...
Frozen Fruit Slices Frozen Fruit Slices By The Iowa Housewife 04/11/13 10:00 This cookbook is from 1978, and I don’t think I had eaten frozen fruit salad actually since the 60’s when it was a ladies’ luncheon specialty. But when I saw this recipe, and found that my husband hadn’t ever eaten it, it was on the menu. I chose to put...
Ginger Glazed Fruit Ginger Glazed Fruit By The Iowa Housewife 05/22/12 08:00 This recipe from the Land O Lakes Flavors of Spring is versatile in the fruit it calls for. Use your favorite fruit from what is available in your area. The difference in the recipe from many similar recipes is the use of gingerroot. I keep a jar of fresh...
Summer Fruit Crostata Summer Fruit Crostata By The Iowa Housewife 04/20/12 13:10 This is an excellent variation of a summer fruit pie. Instead of using a pie crust the pastry is formed free style on a baking sheet. I have made it with various fruits. We like Peaches and plums the best. I rarely put the blueberries in. I will warn you...
Stan's Fruit Bread Stan's Fruit Bread By The Iowa Housewife 01/18/12 10:00 When I saw this recipe for banana bread with 3 of my favorite ingredients, maraschino cherries, chocolate chips and nuts in the “Library of Family Favorites” I had to try it. There weren’t very good instructions, but I found a similar recipe and used those...
Delightful Fruit Loaves Delightful Fruit Loaves By The Iowa Housewife 12/08/11 08:00 One of the great things about cake mixes is the variety of things you can make with them besides cake. This recipe from the Duncan Hines Holiday Spectacular for Delightful Fruit Loaves is a good example of that. It calls for ingredients I usually have on...
Choose-a-Fruit Mini Pies Choose-a-Fruit Mini Pies By The Iowa Housewife 06/08/11 10:00 I liked the idea of little, individual, pies without the work or calories of the bottom crust, when I saw this recipe in the Pillsbury Home Baking cook booklet. I did use homemade lard pie crust – if I have to roll out and cut the crust, I may as well mix...
