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!!!
