Fill your house with the smell of fresh-baked...well, something simple.
This makes a great side dish, but once the kids try it, it will become their main dish. The directions were made simple enough for a ten year old or a real beginner cook wanting to go beyond take-out or boxed dinners. Great for pot luck dinners too.
Easy homemade basic cake from scratch that you can add anythings to and make any flavor you like. This is a family recipe that we have passed down 4 or more generations. You can add thing like 1/4 cup cocoa or a of box JELL-O(R) powder to make other flavors.
This recipe is over 300 years old! I found it in an old cookbook and cherish it dearly. Bear in mind this is a very dense, very rustic loaf, and creates a very hard crust. But it is fun for an authentic Irish treat. Because of the recipes age, all of the rising comes from the buttermilk, rather than bread soda (baking soda). If you prefer a lighter loaf, you may add 1 t. of bread soda to the dry ingredients.
Absolutely the best pecan pie ever! What's more Southern than pecan pie? How about one that only takes 5 minutes to prepare?! Pecan pie even a New Yorker can enjoy...

Belgian endive is wrapped in a slice of ham, then covered with a Bechamel sauce and baked in the oven. The recipe was a favorite of mine when I was living in Austria and finally got hold of the endive my father used to grow in his garden in Belgium. This is one of the various recipes with endive I've experimented with. Add some fine bread crumbs if desired.
This chicken is great with spiced apples, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Wonderful casserole with broccoli, cauliflower and cheese that will even get the children eating their vegetables. Add leftover ham or turkey to casserole for a nice change. You may also use a Frozen California Vegetable mix (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots).
My wife does not like peanut butter, nuts, some dried fruits, or chocolate chips, so I have had to modify my recipe so she could take these tasty and healthy snack bars to work. With as many substitutions possible as your imagination allows, you can change the recipe to fit your on-hand pantry items.
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
