Family Favorite Recipes
Hot Artichoke Dip AKAAlthough this is delicious and one of my favorites hot dips, it's not so much Adam's favorite, hence the nickname (doesn't know what he's missing and he never gave it a try!)
The Original Chex© Party MixEveryone loves this during the holidays! There are many variations available at http://www.chex.com
Slush (This one is full of alcohol - gin to be exact)This is delicious but watch out! It goes down way too easy :)
Italian Zucchini Crescent Pie (Terkle's Fav!)Okay Klenk boys you gotta try this - it really is good!
Pralined Sweet Potatoes and ApplesThis was a one of Aunt Kathy's favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Mom loves it too!
Taffy Apple Salad (addicting)This is a great summertime recipe - great to take to parties or cookouts. I usually double this and be sure you start it the night before you need it.
Mandarin SaladI got this recipe from Aunt Diane. It's one of my favorites - love the different ingredients!
Aunt Peggy's Rittof's Oil and Vinegar DressingThis recipe came from Aunt Peggy Harseim. If you like oil and vinegar dressing this is a good one!

Skillet BBQ Chicken (Low in calories but good)This is a really easy and good chicken recipe - another from Grandma Klenk.
Gma Kay's Cheesy Pasta-in-a-PotIf you like a bowl full of cheesy pasta this one's for you - delicious!
Terkle's Favorite Mushroom QuicheAdam - I know you don't like mushrooms but someone besides me might like this!
"Breakfast Before"This is a Klenk family recipe - great for Christmas brunch but be sure you make it the night before!
Favorite French Breakfast PuffsThis is a recipe I found years ago. If you like cinnamon sugar doughnuts, these are great! If you like simple and easy, you can always make cinnamon sugar doughnuts from a can of Pillsbury Biscuits and a doughnut cutter.
Merks Coffee Cake (Gma Klenk's famous recipe??)I'm not sure but I think this is the coffee cake that always disappears so fast at Christmas - it's that good!
Christmas Braided Cinnamon BreadWhen I was a little girl, this was a Harseim Christmas morning tradition made with frozen bread dough. Always fun to help GMa braid the bread dough strips.
Banana Nut BreadThis delicious recipe comes from Grandma Sally's cookbook. You can always leave out the nuts if you don't like them.
Zucchini BreadAnd this bread is from Grandma Kay's Recipe Box. I can hear you now - yuck, zucchini - but trust me this is delicious!
Ravioli LasagnaGrandma Kay makes this and it is delish! Best of all, it's simple to make! If you have a special homemade sauce that you love, use that; otherwise a jar of spaghetti sauce and three other ingredients is all that is needed!
Twice-Baked Creamy Sweet PotatoesI found this recipe in Taste of Home and if you love twice-baked potatoes, this one is delicious!
Barbeque MeatloafThis is one of my favorite meatloaf recipes. And get this - its a Weight Watchers recipe too! Only 4 points per serving if you're following the plan.
Crash Hot PotatoesThis recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, who has some amazing recipes. These are easy to make and are delicious!
Baked Pesto ChickenThis is a recipe I made recently and it is very good. If you like Caprese salad, this is just like it, only with chicken!
Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad (Weight Watchers Friendly)This layered-salad recipe comes from author and founder, Gina Homolka, of the website Skinnytaste.com and it is delicious! It is Weight Watchers friendly at 6 points per serving and it is hard to stop at one serving! You can easily substitute chicken for the shrimp if you aren't a seafood lover.
Sue's Baked PineappleAunt Sue has a slightly different version of Baked Pineapple - this one has marshmallows on top!
Scalloped CornProvided by Sue Aichele, this is a great side dish with just about anything - brings back memories of our childhood Thanksgiving meals.
Sue's Zucchini CobblerEven if you don't like zucchini, you've got to try this - delicious. Tastes like apple cobbler!
Black and White Summer Bean SaladFrom Aunt Sue's Kitchen (Weight Watchers: 3 points per 1 cup serving
Santa Hat Sugar CookiesThis is a really simple recipe because you can just use a sugar cookie package mix. If you're really motivated though use your favorite sugar cookie recipe.

Chocolate Crinkle Top CookiesFrom Terri's recipe box - a Christmas Cookie (add a Peppermint Hershey Kiss for a twist).
Hard Tack candyGrandmom Sally made this hard candy at Christmastime - cinnamon was always the favorite. It helps to have a candy thermometer for this!
Breakfast BurritosAnother favorite from Taste of Home Country Breakfasts Magazine. The recipe doesn't call for it but I like to add shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese.
Pepperoni RollsThis is everyone's favorite! Use either the Rhodes frozen bread loaves or the easier version - the rolls!
These recipes are family favorites, enjoyed by generations of the Harseim and Klenk families.
