Recipes I've Shared:

Betty/Mom's Homemade Pudding

Delicious warm on a cold winter day! Some like it warm, but it is delicious icy cold. Serve with fresh strawberries and whipped topping on meringue shell for extra treat.

Strawberry Spinach Salad

A delicious refreshing spinach salad, developed by my sister-in-law and put on their farms spinach bags.

Dutch Ollie Balls (Ollie Bollen)

Not a healthy recipe because these are deep fried. For me they're a once a year treat at my brother's business' open house.

LaLa's Cabbage Rolls

These delicious cabbage rolls were made so often by my 94 year old friend, Lillian Powell, that she gave me the recipe without looking at a recipe card! I watched her make them and she gave me some to taste, and they are simply delicious!

Strawberry Pretzel Jello Mold Dessert

I love this dessert, but make it only occasionally. After calculating the calories, I see that it is something I will NOT be making very often.

Blonde Brownies (Made by LaLa)


Makes 36 brownies

Hamburger Barbeque

Recipe makes 20. Texans I know called these "Sloppy Joes". In Iowa they're known as "Taverns".

We like to put a slice of cheese on with a slice of tomato. These are not included in the calorie count.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Banket (Dutch Almond Bars)

A "Dutch" treat, usually made around Christmas (when almond paste is available in our stores). We also buy the paste and freeze it so that we can make banket for our school auction in April.
Need 2 days to make this recipe. The 1st 2 steps takes only about 15-20 minutes. The second day takes about 15-30 minutes depending on how good you are at rolling out dough. Cook time is 20-30 minutes.
I never realized before how many calories are in one little piece. I've learned that I will have to eat this in moderation instead of eating half a stick (or a whole) at one sitting!!

Layered Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not real sweet tasting, but very good bar/pan cookies.

Anita's Easy Potato Salad

I just throw these together to make my own homemade potato salad


A refreshing dessert from my 92-year-old friend. Light and delicious!

Sliced Carrot Salad

A refreshing salad, good for bringing to your potluck dinner. Got the recipe from an almost 93 year old lady who made some for me to try. It was delightful!

Macaroni and Ground Beef

A tasty filling dish that pleases the youngsters in our family.


Light delicious dessert, but probably not too healthy.

Very Good (1 rating)
Broccoli and Rice

I was given this recipe by a charming, quite healthy, with it (up on current events) and motivated (still has lots of goals and interests) 92 year old lady.
