Thanks for sharing your recipes.

I will give you one that I made up.

Cook ham meat add in garlic and onion. Put in 2 cans tomatoes and half bag egg noodles. Add basil, salt, pepper.

And lots of water for noodles to cook. When done add a little cream and 1/3rd block of cream cheese.

Take off stove and keep stirring till combined.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Hi Connie,

These are lovely recipes, but I cannot claim them as mine, although they are authentic.

I like the sound of your recipe. I shall definitely try it. Like many, I still have ham in my deep-freeze left over from Christmas so this is an ideal recipe for leftovers.

Many thanks!

Correction to Recipe

On my recipe,I meant to say hamburger meat.I'm sorry for the mistake. Any old family cake recipes would be appreciated. Thanks.


Thanks for the correction.

Well, how about Martha Washington's famous cake recipe? This comes from a wonderful little book on Colonial Recipes.


Take 20 eggs; divide the whites from the yolks, and beat the whites to a froth. Then work 2 pounds of butter to a cream, put the whites of eggs to it, a spoonful at a time, until well mixed. Then put 2 pounds of sugar, finely powdered, in it in the same manner.

Then add the yolks of eggs, well beaten, 2 1/2 pounds of flour, and 5 pounds of fruit. Add to this 1/4 ounce of mace, a nutmeg, 1/2 pint of wine, and some French brandy. Five and one quarter
hours will bake it.

Mrs. Washington,
Mount Vernon.

Unfortunately, no mention of the temperature, but I suggest at about 350 F. should do it.
