Myra's Lemon Pudding Cake


I found this recipe and thought it looked like an easy one to prepare so I made it last night. It's not only easy but it is really good and I assume that you can use any citrus that you would like. The recipe instructions were not complete (Myra was slipping a bit), so make sure to follow these extra instructions. The recipe calls for 2 egg yolks, you will also need the whites and beat them to stiff peaks. I wasn't sure what kind of dish to use so I used a square glass 8x8 baking dish and it worked fine for me. I also refrigerated the leftovers. If you are gluten sensitive, use an all purpose gluten free flour, I did and I also used skim milk and the recipe turned out fine.

Disfunctional Bean Soup Recipes

This 1964 Hints From Heloise is pretty humorous. I'm not sure if they still serve these soups in Congress, but at least back in 1964 Congress was helping housewives serve up a mean bowl of bean soup.

Ohio Lemon Pie

This recipe comes from 1964 and was written by Clementine Paddleford. Great name and really nice artwork on this newsprint that is ready to fall apart.

Grandpa's Favorite Ozark Apple Cake

My maternal grandfather was from a family of Ozark hillbilly's. Everyday he ate an apple and I can still see him sitting there slicing one with his pocket knife. My Granny was an excellent cook and this is one of her recipes. It's also one of my favorites and always makes me think of them when I prepare it.

Grandpa's Favorite Ozark Apple Cake

2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. nutmeg
4 cups apples, peeled and chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon

Cream together sugar and shortening; add eggs and vanilla. Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture. Add apples and nuts, mix. Place in a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Bonnie's Cheese Souffle + Secrets of a Good Souffle

I love the fact that this recipe was the original form of cut and paste! Plus, ladies get some good secrets on how to create the perfect soufflé!

Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal cookies. Not as much as snickerdoodles or a good molasses cookie, but I do love them. When I found this this recipe, I was intrigued with the ingredients. I thought the combination of spices and orange peel sounded really good and was also surprised to see cornflakes in them. I decided to give them a try last night and was so disappointed in them. The orange flavor was overpowering and the corn flakes gave them an odd bite, kinda like you left eggshells in the mix. My suggestion would be to omit the orange zest and corn flakes. Obviously someone felt they were good enough to write down, just not for me.
