Snowflake's Personal Collection of Delicious Family Favorites
The Snowflake Recipes site contains many favorite family recipes, some of which we have collectively enjoyed for 60 years and longer.
Favorite Family Recipes for Any Season
Here is a new recipe for Stevia, Chia Seed banana bread that I am particularly pleased with that not only contains Stevia but chia seed as well. I discovered the sugar substitute Stevia several months ago and have been experimenting with some of my favorite recipes.
How to Tell if a Recipe is Good
My mother, grandmother and most of the other cooks in the family keep their favorite recipes in neatly sorted boxes of typed recipe cards. Over the years these cards seem to take on a life of their own with pencil scratches, oil spots and helpful notes, ingredient suggestions and substitutions and comments.
Whenever I go into the recipe boxes I always pull out those cards that look most used and abused because I know the recipes will be absolutely perfect in taste and quality. The same can be applied to a good cook book. Just look for the most well-used and worn pages for the tried and true family favorites. There are millions of recipes on the Internet, in cook books and sitting on the shelf gathering dust in your cupboard or book shelves. I guarantee if there are any dog-eared or stained and yellowed pages, the prospects are a lot more promising than with clean and pristine pages.
- Spanish Rice decades of dried spills and tin can ring mark this recipe a special treat
- Cherry Pie pastry flour and Crisco residue combined with with dried cherry juice literally scream out "winner" for this one
- Chicken and Noodles Stains of chicken broth and a big blue check mark puts this one at the top of the list.
- Peanut Butter Cookies Not only is this card soaked in a history of use, somewhere along the line the amounts got doubled...a definite indication of greatness
- Pineapple Upside Down Cake The scent of sweetness in the morning comes alive in these splatters of butter and brown sugar
How to tell the Proof from the Pudding
My mother typed up several hundred recipe cards when I first got married 40 some-odd years ago. I still have them, each and every one. A very few of my cards are still crisp and white but most are smooth-edged and cream colored from years of wear and tear. Here's my secret to discovering favorite festive food directions and great cooking. Here are some tell tale signs that a recipe is delicious just by looking at the physical condition of the instructions. Click on the link to view the card.
