A Taste From Grandma's Kitchen




"A touch of the old, a bit of the new - The Schlabach family shares favorites with you"

I don't remember where I got this one.  It was first published in 1997, with the sixth printing in 2002.  The Schlabach family is a large family, mostly from Ohio.

Throughout the pages, you will find a wide variety of down home recipes that would excite any cook.

The Five Layer Casserole, below, is one I've made a few times.  It is fun to put together.  I've always used grated cheddar, rather than the Velveeta that the recipe calls for.

First layer:  1 1/2 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
Second layer:  slices of raw potatoes
Third layer:  slices of raw carrots
Fourth layer:  slices of raw onion
Fifth layer:  slices of velveeta cheese

Top with one can of cream of mushroom soup.  Cover and bake for one hour at 350.



These Buttermilk Cookies are DIVINE!!!

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tsp. baking soda
4 cups flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tablespoon vinegar

Cream together sugars and shortening.  Add eggs, vanilla, baking soda, buttermilk, and 2 cups flour.  Mix well and add 2 cups flour, cream of tartar, and vinegar.  Mix well.  Drop onto baking sheet and bake at 350 until firm and lightly brown.
Frosting:
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Blend butter and sugar.  Stir in vanilla and milk.  Beat until smooth.
