Molasses Sugar CookiesSubmitted by: Hazel House
We always had molasses around. We also used it to make brown sugar from granulated sugar.
Southern Green BeansSubmitted by: Hazel House
Note: On the Farm we always made this from fresh picked green beans. This recipe is very close but without as much work.
Hazel's Onion DipSubmitted by: Hazel House
I have no idea where Hazel House came up with this recipe, but it is wildly popular yet simple to prepare.
Semi-Homemade ChiliSubmitted by: Hilary House
I developed this recipe over the years, using more and more commercially prepared ingredients until now it is simple and quick to prepare. You can make it as mild or as hot as you like by adding the appropriate seasoning. Hilary
Simple Potato SoupSubmitted by: Hazel House
Mom’s homemade potato soup. Since most potato soup recipes have other additives like chicken stock, etc., I suspect that this is a Depression Era recipe, where you made soups and other meals out of what you had, not what would be nice.
Schoser's Green Chili Sauce with PorkSubmitted by: Chuck Schoser
When Chuck Schoser, Bill Leonard and I (Hilary) used to go camping in the Rockies, Chuck would always make a batch of this and we poured it over most everything.
Ham and Scalloped Potatoes (Crockpot)Modified from the recipe book that accompanied the Original Crockpot many years ago)
Wilted LettuceSubmitted by: Hazel House
Served with parsley potatoes, kidney beans and cornbread, this is Bubba’s favorite meal. Recipes for the parsley potatoes and cornbread are found in this book. BUBBA is Hilary’s family nickname. Probably another Depression Era recipe. This is what you did with lettuce that was beginning to wilt and turn.
Deford Cornbread StuffingSubmitted by: Pearl Deford
Now passed down through 4 generations. Fran House makes this every Thanksgiving.
Hazel's Potato SaladSubmitted by: Hazel House
We used to make about 4 times this recipe on the farm. It was such a large batch we used a dishpan instead of bowls.
Parsley PotatoesSubmitted by: Hazel House
In our family; normally fixed with wilted lettuce, kidney beans and cornbread to make a meal.
Deford CornbreadSubmitted by: Pearl Deford
This was on my grandmother's table with supper most every day. I have never seen this recipe duplicated anywhere. A genuine family recipe.
Hush PuppiesSubmitted by: Hazel House
I love eating them with fried catfish or fresh chopped or pulled pork barbecue. Note: Great with catsup.
Old-Fashioned Date-Nut-BreadSubmitted by: Hilary House
I made this for Fran several times and got very good reviews. Modified from the King Arthur Recipe
Lemon Meringue Pudding CakesSubmitted by: Baking Bites
These were a big hit in the family and the neighborhood.
Orange and Cream PieSubmitted by: Joy the Baker
I have ben looking for recipes which would use other citrus besides lemons and limes and this recipe fits the bill. It is also a No Bake recipe.
Strawberry PieSubmitted by: Robyn Stone | Add a Pinch
Reminds me of the Strawberry pie sold at Bob's Big Boy in Phoenix Arizona in the 60's. Now a favorite at home.
Hazel's Heavenly HashSubmitted by: Hazel House
Before mini marshmallows existed we had to cut up regular marshmallows with scissors. It was a sticky and messy procedure.
Homemade Ice CreamSubmitted by: Doodleraft Blog
No Ice Cream Maker Needed Modified from an Instructable !developed by Doodlecraft Blog
South of the Border Ice CreamNo Ice Cream Maker Needed! This is an original recipe developed in my kitchen. Hilary
Hilary's Banana PuddingSubmitted by: Hilary House
My grandmother, Pearl, had to make the vanilla pudding from scratch. Through later generations Jello developed cooked vanilla pudding that was very good and then developed instant vanilla pudding, also great. Us lazier generations use the pudding mix.
Easy Fantasy FudgeThis recipe has been found on Jars of Jiffy Puffed Marshmallow Cream for many years. I have added my own experience for making it at high altitude.
Peanut Butter FudgeSubmitted by: Joy of Cooking Cookbook
Originally found this in The Joy Of Cooking Cookbook ( edition unknown) and modified for easy preparation.
Turtle CandyThe first time I saw this candy made at home, the baker placed a Kraft caramel on top of three pecan halves, placed it in the oven until the caramel melted, then placed chocolate chips on top of the caramel and returned it to the oven if necessary, to melt the chocolate. The problem with this approach is that the caramel very quickly gets very uncomfortably hard.. I modified the recipe to make the caramel softer and to make production easier. Hilary House
Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiesSubmitted by: Jacques Torres
Adapted from Jacques Torres’ recipe which is often called the New York Times Chocolate Chip Recipe. Makes outstanding cookies. I have heard that Famous Amos, when asked where he got his chocolate chip cookie recipe, stated that it was printed on the package of Toll House Chocolate Chips. "I just doubled the amount of chocolate chips in the recipe." I took a hint from Amos!
Best Chocolate SauceSubmitted by: david lebovitz
Modified from the recipe of the great chef David Lebovitz.
White SauceSubmitted by: Hazel House
This is probably a common sauce, but I learned it from mom. I use it in my Chipped Beef on Toast Recipe.
Bean SandwichesSubmitted by: Hazel House
When my mom, Hazel, made these we didn’t have precooked bacon and grated cheese, so preparation took longer but it was always worth it.
Deviled Ham Sandwich SpreadSubmitted by: Hilary House
My mom, Hazel, used to make this for me but used Mayo instead of creamed cheese. It was good but I added the creamed cheese to give it more body and flavor.
Tennessee Pimento CheeseSubmitted by: Pearl Deford
Passed down through 4 generations: I drain the olive oil off of the pimentos before adding them, Bettye, my sister, does not. I like her version just as well as mine. There are many different type of pimento cheese from the south. Many use grated or ground cheddar cheese. But, this is the one I grew up with and still love today.
Bettye's MeatloafSubmitted by: Hazel House
This is Hazel's family recipe which Bettye modified to take advantage of modern appliances and it was a blessing for me as my difficulty in swallowing progressed. Fran House's version is also much appreciated by all. Additionally daughter, Stacy McKay,, who does not like to squish raw ground meat with her hands, came up with the method of using her mixer and dough hooks to mix the meatloaf. This has caught on in the family and is now the accepted way to mix the meatloaf.
Spanish RiceSubmitted by: Grace Ashley
Grandma Ashley would not permit others in her kitchen and would not share her recipes. This recipe was reconstructed by Fran House and her dad, Frank Ashley, from memories and much experimentation. Fran House
Egg Salad - Tuna SaladSubmitted by: Hazel House
I often make egg salad and have it for a day or so and then add a can of tuna and have Tuna Salad.
Southern Fried OkraSubmitted by: Hazel House, Fran House
This is a traditional southern dish where the cut up okra is breaded and fried. This recipe uses no flour, and is thus true southern.
Lemon Filled Tart or PieSubmitted by: Kitchen Explorers
Most of the time I prepare this without any topping as the pie is delicious on its own.
Lemon Meringue PieSubmitted by: Eagle Brand
This recipe debuted in the 1940’s as “Lemon Ice Box Pie” and quickly became the most popular dessert of that decade. It has most recently been updated to include an additional baking step to render the eggs safe. Modified from the Eagle Brand recipe.
Original Key Lime PieSubmitted by: unknown
Back when this pie was invented, there were no cows or stores on the Florida Keys. Everything had to come in by boat and so they used canned sweetened condensed milk, just like this recipe. They added meringue to use up the leftover egg whites. You may do that also, and then brown the meringue in the oven. This recipe was probably the inspiration for the Lemon Ice Box Pie, later called Lemon Meringue Pie.
