This recipe is from my grandmother and was never written down! I guess her whole point was that if you’re a good cook, you should be able to retrieve the recipe from memory :) She passed it on to my mom, and then to me! Her picture is in the last pic with the cake…hehe!
So you basically mix one stick of unsalted butter, with 1 cup of sugar (any sugar) until creamy. Them you beat in 4 eggs, one at a time. Add 1 teaspoon of good quality vanilla at the end and mix again. Pour in 1 cup of milk or low fat yogurt and let sit for 10 min. In the meantime, set oven to 350 F. Also, in a separate bowl mix 2 cups of unbleached flour with 1 teaspoon of baking powder (not soda, it’s not good for you). Then add the flour mixture to the wet batter. DO NOT MIX. Add the flour a bit at a time and fold over with a spatula! Over-mixing will make the cake not to rise so be careful. At this step you can add chocolate chip, raisins, nuts, etc. Pour the batter in a lightly greased cake pan and bake in the middle rack for 50 minutes. Do not open the over during this time because the cake won’t rise! Cool the cake and eat :)
Marinated Shark: This recipe was sent to me by one of my wonderful graduate professors. She says “a friend of mine picked this up at Stop & Shop and shared with me…. I use the recipe for Salmon as well. ”
Yummy little Assyrian fillo triangles stuffed with a mixture of ground beef, egg, parsley and seasoning / smashed potato, sauteed onions, red pepper flakes and seasoning. Grammy’s recipe only made in fillo dough instead of a quick rise dough. Also in the photo is Apple Streusel. I found the recipe on the back of the fillo dough package. Came out wonderful!
This is a recipe for apple crisp from my friend, Katie. She baked it for all of us a number of times in college, and I remember having lots of fun baking with her. So when I wanted to make a yummy dessert for my Christmas party that fed a lot of people, I asked her for the recipe. It was delicious and I’ve baked it a number of times since then with great success.
