To those of you who wish to finally be provided with recipes for some of my basic favorites, Enjoy. They are finally on the den!

First, I present to you a family recipe which has been passed on throughout the years.

 


    

7 Hour – 7 Layer Salad

 

Use a large cake pan and place the ingredients in accordance with the following sequence.

 

½ head of lettuce shredded or a layer 2 to 3 inches deep

Layer of ½ cup of chopped green pepper

Layer of ½ cup chopped onion

Layer of ½ cup finely cut celery

Layer of 2 cups frozen peas

Combine and spread over vegetables:    ½ cup sour cream,  ½ cup mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons of sugar

8 or 9 slices bacon fried crisp, cooled and crumbled

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

 

Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 7 hours or over night.


 

 

 

 

Sometimes I substitute strawberry gelatin for the lime gelatin and I eliminate the lemon juice, pineapple and celery.  I then put in a package of frozen strawberries with its juice into the mixture.  All other ingredients remain such as marshmallows, cream cheese, nuts and whipping cream.

 


Lime Cheese Salad

 

Beat the following ingredients in a large mixing bowl:

1 package lime gelatin

2 cups boiling water

¾ package of small (miniature) marshmallows

1 large package of cream cheese – 8 oz.

 

Include the following, once you have achieved a smooth consistency with the above ingredients.

Juice of 1 lemon

1 small can pineapple undrained

1 cup finely cut celery

1 cup chopped nuts

 

Fold in the following into your mixture:

1 cup heavy cream whipped

 

Place in your favorite gelatin mold


 

 

 

After trying the various recipes offered through bartending books, none have worked as well as the following recipe which was passed on to me by the Hogberg-Gerszewski Legion Club of Argyle, Minnesota.  This is a great Holiday party drink.  Remember, do not drink and drive!  Always consider a designated driver or take a form of public transportation.

 

 


TOM & JERRY’S

 

8 Large or 10 small eggs

½ tsp cream of tartar

¼-1/2 tsp cinnamon

¼-1/2 tsp allspice

¼-1/2 tsp nutmeg

1.4-1/2 tsp cloves

2 ½ lbs powdered sugar (approx)

 

Separate eggs, beat whites stiff adding cream of tartar.  Beat egg yolks, adding spices.  Beat or mix powdered sugar into egg yolks until yolks are too stiff to operate beater.   Thoroughly mix egg whites with eg yolk mixture.  Do not whip final mixture.  Folding is best – refrigerate

 

Add ½ cup batter to ½ oz brandy ½ oz rum and boiling water.

Sprinkle with nutmeg

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Yes, although there are few ingredients, this really works.  This is a great item to provide as a gift.

 


ENGLISH TOFFEE

 

[Chop Nuts and open a bag of chocolate chips (your choice) in advance]

 

 

2 Cups of Sugar

2 Pounds of Butter (Do not use margarine or a butter substitute)

 

Constantly stir the above mixture until it reaches 300 degrees (You will need a heavy duty thermometer) Use pans which have no coatings

 

Once the temperature has reached 300 degrees, spread the mixture into a large jelly roll pan.  Immediately place your favorite chocolate chips on top of the toffee mixture, swirling with a wooden spoon to make certain it covers the entire pan.  Then sprinkle chopped nuts of your choice.  Almonds are fantastic 

 

I suggest placing the pan in your freezer for a quick cool.  Once the candy is cooled, break it into pieces and place it in your favorite containers for gifts or as a desert favor.

 

 


 

 

I sampled a lot of French Silk Pie before I managed this recipe and consistency.  Since your eggs are not cooked, make certain they are fresh and of the best quality before even considering this fabulous desert.

 


CHOCOLATE SILK PIE WITH A TWIST

 

½ Cup Butter

2 Eggs

¾ Cup Sugar

Pinch of salt

2 Squares Unsweetened Chocolate

1 tsp vanilla

Small container of cool whip or a pint of whipped cream

 

Top with whipped cream and chocolate pieces

 

 

Cream butter and sugar.  Add melted chocolate, vanilla and salt.  Beat until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time, beating five (5) minutes after adding each egg.  Beat whipped topping on low until well mixed.    Pour filling into baked pie shell or for a difference take a rolling pin to sandwiched chocolate cookies crushing them and add melted butter to hold the crust in place.   Then top with whipped topping or whipped crim.  Sprinkle with grated chocolate.  Chill overnight or at least three hours.
