I'm relieved at the feedback from my last post. Posting something from my journaling is always very difficult, as it is so personal. To put my feelings out there to the world is, well, scary. But wow! I love it that some of you were actually encouraged - that' reason enough for me to keep posting these personal thoughts when I have a few interesting ones.
But the title of today's post is not about my inner secrets, but our cooking secrets! Over the past couple years I've gotten some great recipes that have become regulars on our dinner table. I got a great recipe from Robyn (I'll let her post it if she wants), a wonderful cabbage, chicken, rice soup recipe from Cynthia, and many others.
I'm also working on perfecting my new Turkey Lasagna recipe.
It seems like the best recipes come from others, not cookbooks or online.
In light of that, what awesome recipe do you cook over and over for your loved ones?
Here is one of my favorites:
Amazing pie crust:
Sift together into a 9" pie shell:
1-1/2 C. Flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
Mix together with fork:
1/2 C Oil
2 Tblsp. Milk
Pour over flour mixture and stir until blended with fork. Use your hands to complete the blending and pat into the bottom and sides of pie pan as evenly as possible. Flute edges.
To Pre-bake - Prick with fork and back 425 for 10-12 minutes until barely toasted.
Can also be filled and baked as called for in filling recipe.
Also- good to add toasted sesame seeds when used with a cream pie. Just sprinkle on top of crust or press in!
