I thought I would share two favorite recipes of mine. My reputation as a cook is minimal, so you can bet that my favorite recipes are easy ones!
Because I didn't think to take photos earlier, this is what is left of the ham quiche. I dolled it up with accessories for the photo. The creamer in the picture is one that belonged to my grandmother and it displays a portrait of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth commemorating a royal visit to Canada in 1939.Just thought I would throw that in due to the recent festivities.
According to my recipe card I got this recipe in 1984 from WCCO radio in Minneapolis, MN. We didn't find things on line back then, so they had a home economist on the radio to inform us. Joyce somebody, I think. This is such an easy recipe and great if you have some leftover ham. I have change the filling to my liking.
HAM QUICHE use 9" partially baked pie shell
Beat together 1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup,
4 eggs, beaten. 1/2 cup light cream (I used skim milk)
In the bottom of the pie shell place 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 4 tablespoons of flour, 1/2 cup or so of chopped ham, about a cup or so of cooked broccoli heads. Pour the mixed liquid into pie crust over the filling and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Test to be sure it is done. Let sit for a few minutes before cutting. Yum!
And this is what is left of the peanut butter Rice Krispie bars. I got this recipe from a friend in about 1970. It quickly became a family favorite.
PEANUT BUTTER RICE KRISPIE BARS
In a large sauce pan mix 1/2 cup sugar with 3/4 cup light corn syrup. Bring to a boil to melt sugar, but don't over boil or it turns the bars hard. Take off the heat and stir in 1 cup of peanut butter until melted. Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies. Mix together and pat into a 9x 13 pan.
Melt 6 ounces of chocolate chips and 6 ounces of butterscotch chips together (I do this in the microwave). Spread over the top of the bars. When the chocolate sets, cut into pieces and serve. Listen to the crowd go wild!
Additionally, these can be shaped. My DIL shapes it into a football each year for their super bowl party. Shape it into a teddy bear, or birthday numbers, etc. Or just make it in a pan like I do!
And now for a quick pic of how our darling little twins are growing! They look like they have been eating quiche and Rice Krispie bars! But no, their mama is actually providing enough milk for both of them. Apparently they have good eats too! They are thriving!
