This recipe is great for guests and actually comes for friends in Wisconsin. This was one of my favorite dishes when we got together at their house, and of course, I had to have the recipe!!! Use low sodium products, and lean meats, low fat cheese to reduce calories, sodium.

Wake up to the smell of "fresh" bagels right in your own home. This delicious recipe has been a family standard for years. Basically, because I love making breads of any kind.

Cookbook creator says: This recipe is not from my personal files, but I'm happy I found it. My mother used to make this soup all the time - I was "raised" on sauerkraut being a first American born German. This is very tasty and tart and a recipe I did not keep in my files. Thanks!

Simple Salmon Patties
Very Good 4.3/5
(173 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: My husbands mother made salmon patties all the time. Instead of using bread crumbs, she would use saltine crackers - a good substitute if you don't have bread crumbs in the house. This was a Garrod family favorite growing up.

A Garrod family staple. It was easy to make with ingredients one might always have on hand. Here is the less fat, less calorie version. I use turkey bacon in this recipe, but you can use regular bacon. Mom Garrod would turn in her grave if she knew I was using turkey bacon.

This recipe was a great hit with our kids as they were growing up. It was also fast and easy to fix in an evening OR to have simmering in a crockpot. Also great for parties. Fabulous as leftovers.

A great way to get kids to eat their vegetables, especially broccoli which has a stronger taste. Adults will love this as well and it was a standard recipe served to our kids as they were growing up. It is simple and quick and a great side dish for busy working parents.

Our good Midwestern friends served up these rolls when we visited. The smell of the rolls baking are enough to make great memories. Needless to say, I had to have the recipe to use for my own family.

There was one Midwestern friend who was a great cook. She shared many of her recipes with me and I worked them into our family dinners. This one has the great eclair taste, but in a torte so you can manage your serving size.

This recipe makes six loaves so you can stock up and have homemade bread for your family. I made a lot of homemade bread when my kids were growing up, and they helped. It is one of the items they "ask" me to make when I visit. You can freeze this bread and warm in toaster oven, microwave or regular oven. The secret to this recipe is to have EVERYTHING from the bowl to the towel "cozy warm". This packages up great for food gifts or parties.

Cheese adds zip to this family stand-by for after school snacks. A tradition for adults and kids. Quick and easy and can be made ahead, also a great lunchbox treat.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a favorite in our household, not just with the kids, but the adults as well. My husband would have his with tomato soup. This sandwich filling recipe is a twist on an old favorite.
