    Kids Say The Darndest Things

    Back in 1968 when our son was 2, maybe less, he was usually sound asleep by the time it was dark, but one night we were walking to the car. Our son looked up at the moon with a shocked look on his face and said excitedly, "There's a banana in the sky."

    Like most families with lots of kids and not much money to feed them, my Mom made goulash often, and once I was married, I did too. Even when we were able to eat high off the hog, I still made it 'cause I love the stuff. Mom and I used spaghetti instead of macaroni, and added either red or...

    Fried Corn

    These days most fried corn recipes call for bacon, sometimes green pepper and onion, but this is how it was made back in the 40's through the 70's. For me, fried corn is a comfort food. Fried Corn 8 to 12 ears of fresh corn 2 tablespoons bacon grease plus 4 tablespoons butter OR 6 tablespoons...

    Tuna Noodle Casserole

    There are many versions of this recipe, this is the version I use. I have only made it with potato chips once. Instead of the chips, I crush a sleeve of saltine crackers, stir that into a stick of melted butter then sprinkle on top. Lots of crunch. Yummy. Tuna Noodle Casserole 1 cup dry elbow...

    Apple Coleslaw

    At family gatherings, we each bring our specialty dishes, but we would take turns making coleslaw. That is because none of us did it very well. So a few years ago when it was my turn, I searched the web for a recipe that everyone would love and found this gem. Ever since, I have been the...

    For several years after we were married, we were very broke, especially after our two kids were born. We fed them milk, fruit, veggies, meat, all the things that were considered healthy back then, but we had zero money for extras. That means for the first few years of their lives, we never...

    Managing Recipes

    This Tutorials Forum says "Net Cooking Talk Members offer up tutorials on what they are best at." Well, I certainly don't claim to be best at managing recipes, and I wouldn't call this a tutorial but I didn't know where else to post it. At first it was fun leafing through my small stack of...

    Cranberry Jell-O Salad (low carb)

    Cranberries are one of the few fruits that are fairly low in carbs. They are pretty sour so require a lot of sweetening, then again if they weren't sour, they wouldn't be low carb. Thanksgiving and Christmas aren't the only time I serve cranberry salad, I serve it throughout the year. When...

    Baked Potatoes

    This is how I cook the potatoes when making potato salad. Baked potatoes make for a better potato salad than boiled potatoes. It's easy to make baked potatoes in a crockpot. Just wash them, stab them a few times with a fork, then wrap each potato in foil. You can fill the cooker as full...

    Real Stewed Tomatoes

    I'm sure most people don't get a thrill when they think of stewed tomatoes. That is probably because these days folks just buy a can of stewed tomatoes, throw them in the nuker for a minute and believe that is how stewed tomatoes are supposed to taste. Far from it. It is sad that making real...

    No, I didn't kill him.

    It was 1963 and almost Thanksgiving. We had been married less than two months. The only cooking experience I had was watching my mom and grandma cook, but I did have my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook, and that's all I needed. I decided to make my very first pie, and the crust would be from...
