Celery with Citrus Ginger Sauce Celery with Citrus Ginger Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 09/18/14 10:00 Here’s a simply delicious side dish! My husband couldn’t believe CELERY could be so good. I couldn’t believe it could be so quick as well. This is a healthy, fiber-filled, delicious side dish. I especially like it with an entrée that I bake, like chicken...
Family Favorites...Swiss Steak with Chili Sauce Family Favorites...Swiss Steak with Chili Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 09/05/14 10:00 Made a variation on Swiss Steak for supper tonight. None of us are very fond of the traditional Swiss steak with tomatoes. This recipe calling for Chili Sauce instead of tomatoes looked interesting and I have always had good luck with the Farm Journal Country...
Family Favorites...Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce Family Favorites...Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 07/18/14 10:00 One recipe I tried from The Southern Living best comfort food recipes, 2011 , was a recipe for Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce. I bought 2 small bottles (50ml) of Bacardi Gold rum at one of our local liquor outlets. I think rum flavoring might work, but the...
Sherry Custard Sauce Sherry Custard Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 05/07/14 10:00 Sherry Custard Sauce from the Betty Crocker Old Fashioned Cookbook was the recipe I tried today. The recipe says it is good over fruit or cake or in a trifle. Note that this is a sauce, not a custard or pudding. It does thicken as it gets colder, but it...
Poached chicken with wine and mushroom sauce Poached chicken with wine and mushroom sauce By The Iowa Housewife 02/17/14 10:00 The Southern Living Quick and Easy has several quick recipes and many menu ideas. I rarely poach chicken, so this recipe poaching chicken in the oven was something different. The chicken gets poached in white wine and chicken broth for 15 to 20 minutes...
Divine Caramel Sauce Divine Caramel Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 12/04/13 10:00 Here’s a gift you can still make for Christmas – it doesn't take long at all. This caramel sauce is thick and delicious, and, you know what is in it. You can get two nice half-pint jars from the recipe with a little left for you. No need to can it – it...
Mafalda and Vegetables With Asiago Fontina Cheese Sauce Mafalda and Vegetables With Asiago Fontina Cheese Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 10/14/13 10:00 I almost didn't try this recipe, and I’m glad I did. This is a delicious meatless pasta dish that comes out just right. With, as my husband says, everything we like in it, it’s certainly pretty enough to be the star of a Holiday buffet – alongside tossed...
Linguine with Mushroom Shrimp Sauce Linguine with Mushroom Shrimp Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 09/16/13 10:00 This sauce for this dish from "Fan Fare" isn’t as pretty as some red pasta sauces, but it tastes wonderful. We like it with chili sauce and sherry, which I always have on hand. If you don’t have tarragon, try some fresh or dried thyme. This takes just as...
Family Favorites - Warm Apples with vanilla sauce Family Favorites - Warm Apples with vanilla sauce By The Iowa Housewife 09/13/13 10:00 We like this without the cranberries added and over ice cream. Good just to eat in a sauce dish without anything else. I usually prepare this dessert just before serving because I love the aroma in my kitchen as the apples cook. But, I have found that it...
Terrific Tartar Sauce Terrific Tartar Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 07/25/13 10:00 The recipe from Cheap, Fast, Good for Tartar Sauce is like many tartar sauce recipes except that it calls for lemon. As we are having fish for supper tonight, this was a good day to try it out. If you have lemon juice in your freezer, use it for this recipe....
Beans with Parsley Sauce Beans with Parsley Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 06/18/13 10:30 This is a real budget recipe if you have a garden or a good source of garden beans and fresh parsley. The sauce seems to be stabilized by the egg yolk for freezing, and I made a larger recipe of sauce and stashed some in my freezer for quick veggie fix-ups...
Broiled Cod with Herb Sauce Broiled Cod with Herb Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 05/06/13 10:00 We love cod, and I always keep some in the freezer – it cooks quickly and easily. I look for other ways to dress it up, so I wanted to try this herb sauce idea. For the photo, I used fresh herbs from my pot garden instead of dry – use at least twice as...
Tortellini with Salmon Sauce Tortellini with Salmon Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 05/01/13 10:00 When I saw this recipe, it sounded great – we love salmon and pasta. However, when I looked at those little packets of vacuum-packed salmon, I almost fainted at the price! I had about a 7 ounce piece of fresh salmon left over from packaging some for the...
Mushroom Sauce Mushroom Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 04/09/13 10:00 This is the kind of recipe that looks harder than it is. But it’s a good one to have in your repertoire, because, like other Velouté or sauces made from broth or stock with an egg yolk added, it also freezes and reheats well. I made this, used part of it,...
Pepper Shrimp in Peanut Sauce Pepper Shrimp in Peanut Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 01/02/13 08:00 I used orange marmalade that Myrna made from a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa to make this dish – certainly a luxury! And it was worth it. My husband and I are both shrimp fans and this dish was excellent. The cookbook says this recipe is from 1995,...
Beef Ravioli in Basil Cream Sauce Beef Ravioli in Basil Cream Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 12/17/12 10:00 Here’s a dish that’s simply delicious, and versatile too. I first made it in the summer, and used some garden tomatoes and peppers for the Rotel, and we enjoyed it just as much. I hadn’t tried the combination of tomato and cream, but we really liked it...
Southern bbq Sauce Southern bbq Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 10/29/12 09:06 We had some very good smoked pulled pork to use for sandwiches for supper tonight. The pork came from Costco, their brand, and I highly recommend it. Lots of nice crunchy pieces, my favorite part. Sue had given us some homemade hamburger buns, yum, and...
Tortellini or Ravioli in Cream Sauce Tortellini or Ravioli in Cream Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 10/08/12 08:00 As you can guess, this isn’t tortellini in the photo of this dish…I had frozen ravioli on hand instead, and it was just as good or better. I also didn’t have the frozen vegetable mix called for in the dish; I used what I had in the freezer; broccoli and...
Freezer Cheese Sauce Mix Freezer Cheese Sauce Mix By The Iowa Housewife 07/07/12 10:00 After lunch, my husband cleaned out the pan that I prepared this cheese sauce in…he liked it that much! This recipe from “Make a Mix" is really not a mix, but a very tasty cheese sauce that can be frozen to be thawed and heated to use anytime. I reheated...
Cod Fillets With Cucumber Dill Sauce Cod Fillets With Cucumber Dill Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 06/07/12 08:00 This recipe from "Cooking a La Heart" was just what we like! We enjoy cod, and I had some nice fillets in the freezer. Thawing them was the hardest part of this recipe. My husband didn’t like the idea of pureeing the sauce, so I simply finely chopped the...
