Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping

I buy sweet potatoes by bushel.  Seriously, I have recently purchased my second nearly bushel box of sweet potatoes.  I think apples and oatmeal are the only other foods that we purchase in as large or larger quantities on a regular basis. I will tell you about the oatmeal sometime…it requires a separate post. 🙂 Most of […]

Grandma’s Mincemeat

My paternal grandma’s mincemeat pie was a much sought after item by relatives close and far on my dad’s side of the family.  It was not turned down on my mom’s side of the family either 🙂  It was a staple at the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table. She and my parents tweaked her original […]

Pumpkin Muffins

Muffins are my “go to” when it comes to travelling breakfast foods.  I like to make them when we are leaving early to go to an event or on a trip. Yes, some muffins have been called out for excessive calories and sodium.  However, muffins can be relatively healthy and tasty when you make your […]

Zucchini Bundt Cake

Apparently, Bundt Cakes are once again “in.”  King Arthur Flour even named 2017 “Year of the Bundt.”  I guess I really don’t move in the proper circles, because I never knew Bundt cakes were ever out.  I have always loved Bundt cakes since my mom got her very first Bundt cake pan in the late(?) […]

Easy Whole Egg Homemade Mayonnaise

I remember my maternal grandmother making mayonnaise; it was the only mayonnaise I would eat.  My family, including my grandmother, used Miracle Whip for just about everything where you might use mayonnaise.  On the occasions where actual mayonnaise was needed my mom would just buy a jar, but my grandmother made her own.  I think […]

Zucchini Bread

We often had more zucchini from our garden than we could eat or give away in a summer.  One particularity abundant summer I decided to turn all of our excess zucchini into zucchini bread.  I baked zucchini bread for days.  While we did give some of the bread away, I froze most of the bread. […]

Quick Chicken and Bean Enchiladas

I often cook more chicken than we will use in one meal just to use the leftovers in other dishes. One of our favorites is this simple, quick dish.  No leftovers?  No problem.  You can purchase rotisserie chicken and have this dish on the table in no time. When I have more time I make […]

Roasted Summer Squash Halves

I purchased a bunch of very small yellow summer squash at a local farm.  I wanted to make them for dinner, but I did not have much time to cook.  Normally, I would have made them into cooked squash, but my husband needed to be able to eat them and I don’t like cooked squash […]

Amish Sweet and Sour Dressing

When I think of an Amish salad dressing, I think of Amish Sweet and Sour Dressing. The celery seed laden dressing with vinegar and oil has long been one of my favorites. The first time I ever remember eating this style of sweet and sour dressing was at a Dutch Pantry restaurant on a garden […]

Amish Macaroni Salad

According a teenager eating this Amish Macaroni Salad for the first time, it is “the best thing I have ever eaten.” I am not sure everyone would agree as I know some people do not appreciate the sweetness of the dressing. However, I think many people would at least agree that they love Amish Macaroni […]
