The recipe for Spiced Rhubarb's been in my family for years—it was handed down to me by my mother, who got it many decades ago from her mother.
This dish is good either hot or cold...with a meal (it's delicious alongside pork or lamb) or just plain. I even like to spread it on my breakfast toast!
As for me, I'm a country girl. I was born in the country, and I'm still here.
This is a special recipe my whole family likes. Every time they visit and I make Ham Balls, they're all smiles. When I take this to potluck meals, I'm always asked to share the recipe. It's very appropriate for my region, too, since Iowa farmers raise prize-winning pigs and cattle.
Mention pork spareribs to any Southerner, and barbecue will almost always come to mind. This recipe is a favorite with my family. Who don't you try it and see if it doesn't become one of your family's favorites?
A chunky chutney like this one makes a great gift for friends and neighbors. I give them the chutney in a decorated jar with a package of cream cheese and a box of crackers. It makes a lovely snack and is just as good alongside a main dish.
There always seems to be a glut of zucchini...with every gardener having more than he or she can use! So I have spent lots of time looking for different uses for zucchini. One day I was thinking of my homemade chutney and suddenly decided to use zucchini in it. Now we serve it with almost anything - hot dogs, roast beef, chicken, as a sandwich spread - you name it.
I have three small children and I'm always trying new meat loaf recipes. This recipe is something I developed, and it's one of the first meat loaves that my kids really went for. See if your kids like it, too!
I grew up in southern California, and my dad took advantage of our long growing season by keeping a great garden. Dad grew potatoes, lettuce, radishes, onions and lots of tomatoes. If we were lucky enough to have meat on Sunday, Mother would fix this tomato side dish. The sauce gives them a different flavor.
