Artichoke Salad

Artichoke Salad

A friend of ours (Mary Goodman) made this salad for us a few years ago, and I’ve loved it ever since. We have it in the summer and winter. Great side dish!

Pie Crust – Best Ever

THIS IS FROM THE FAMILY AS YOU CAN SEE. MY HUSBANDS GRANDMOTHER. EVERYONE IN THE FAMILY LOVE HER PIE CRUST, AND IT’S SUPER EASY.  I NEVER THOUGHT THE PIE CRUST COULD MAKE SUCH A BIG A DIFFERENCE UNTIL WE STARTED GETTING INTO PROCESSING FRUITS. WE THEN BEGAN MAKING A LOT OF APPLE AND PEACH PIES – OH YUMM! – AND THE CRUST IS TASTY WITH JUST A LITTLE BIT OF FLAKINESS TO IT.

GOOD OL’ HOMEMADE TO GO WITH THE DELICIOUS FRUIT IN THE PIES.  HOPE YA ENJOY!

Oat Bran & Spinach Muffins

The title doesn’t sound very good, does it. But it  really is VERY Good!!   I’ve need to continue and look for ways to sneak in extra greens and protein for my health.  By the way these will take on the greenish color from the spinach, they could be a fun thing for St. Patrick’s Day

I took the “KROGER” box of OAT BRAND Muffin mix, and instead of adding 1 cup of water, I mixed together 1 cup of bean juice (from baked pinto beans) and 1 cup frozen spinach, in a blender. When it was all nice and smooth,  I poured it back into my 1 cup measuring cup and that’s what I had – 1 cup mixed bean juice and spinach. This was now ready mix in a bowl with the “KROGER” OAT BRAN Muffin Mix. Then bake at 350 for 20-25 min.

NOTE – I cooks pinto beans a lot with my crock pot, this is where I get my extra bean juice (sometimes I’ll even put more water in on purpose for the juice). I’ve been using it more and more in cooking and baking. It adds a little texture and flavor. I use the juice quite a bit in the summer with my smoothies. The juice is simply part of my water.

Short Bread

snow trees.copyrt.

This is a great recipe that is soo tasty and simple to do. I don’t usually like short bread, but this one is the exception. I remember my grandma Mary having this already made and bringing it with her when she would come to spend Christmas with us, these are good-warm memories. I have to admit that I haven’t made this in years only because I get carried away with making the fudge and Krispy treats – will just have to fit it in again.

                                                      5       C.      Sifted Flour

Form into cube, cut in half, place 1 part between wax paper. Roll out to fit into 8” pan. Repeat with second half in another pan.

Bake in slow oven @ 300° for one hour.

Cut as soon as taken from oven.

Make small holes on top with fork, by just touching through the surface throughout the top to making a spotted design.

Peach & Apple Pie

Have to say that today, with the help of my husband, WE made a really good peach pie. Had enough dough left over to make a nice little apple pie. Used our Pie Crust recipe, with Betty Crocker’s Apple pie filling & Peach pie filling recipe, (out of my book).  I ate the peach pie first and it was WONDERFUL!!

If you would like, here’s the link to Bettycrocker.com  for the Apple pie recipe, it’s the same one I used. YUMMY!
