    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?

    1. Is there a recipe you used to make alot but now can't find?
    Yes, I have several. One is for rhubarb cream pie and it was one that I would cook over the stove. I also lost the truffle one I had that was really easy.

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies?
    No, not yet. I just found one at our Hyvee store that sounds good.

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?
    Oh my mom was awesome cooking! Oh, she would make
    cabbage rolls, pork riblets with sour kraut (we fried them first then cooked w/water and added sour kraut after, then had potatoes served with it); hamburger noodle dish (tomato soup, kidney beans, hamb, egg noodles) and also egg noodles with scrambled eggs cooked over them/with them. I know I asked fav thing/meal, but now I really miss my mom's cooking and can't stop thinking of all the yummy stuff!

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?
    I tried artichokes, and really like them! My dh isn't too picky and I have had him try alot of stuff--he likes everything except sweet pickles! Katrina likes beets and I didn't think she would like them but loves em!


    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what?
    I wish I would make roll outs but havent in a few years. I like them with frosting best, even if its just opening a can of cream cheese already made frosting (or any other flavor) and spreading on there when hot so it melts a little). Not as excited about drop sugar cookies or the ones you roll in balls and smush down.


    Have a great weekend!!!!

    1. Is there a recipe you used to make alot but now can't find? Not that I ever made but my aunt used to make a Grasshopper Pie-I think oreo crust, creme de minthe.... My uncle and her are now divorced so I don't know the recipe. I think about it a lot.

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies? No, but I buy them at a Great Harvest bread store --I would love a recipe.

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?
    Probably spagghetti-mom wasn't the best cook.

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?
    Deffinately sushi! I never wanted to try and once I did I am soo hooked. Love the stuff! My little girls love fish and seafood.

    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what? Don't make them much-too much work. I love to eat them thought-with frosting.

    1. Is there a recipe you used to make alot but now can't find?

    Not that I can think of. I usually just wing it with my recipes.

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies?

    No, but funny you ask because just this week I told Ella that we were going to make granola bars. She loves them and I thought it might be fun to try this weekend.

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?

    I loved the total garbage meals and found the more healthful ones a bit boring/bland. (ie: hamburgers & french fries yes, roast and potatoes/carrots- no.)

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?
    smoked oysters- had to be paid to try one as a child and now I am all over them anytime someone opens a can.

    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what?
    Most often, I buy the pilsbury and roll them out very thin. I cut with shapes and then glaze them with milk & powdered sugar after they're baked. I sometimes dye the glaze and I also sometimes add colored sugar on top of that.

    Thanks for the Qs! I forgot it was Friday!

    1. Is there a recipe you used to make alot but now can't find?

    No. If there were it would really bug me!

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies?

    Yes, I do try healthy recipes from time to time. Not all of them are successful. I make hermits (they have molasses, raisins and nuts, so don't seem as bad as regular cookies), I make Big Sur coconut cookies with whole-wheat pastry flour and raisins, and I made a gingerbread for Christmas that had neither eggs not butter (instead it had tofu).

    I also like to make fruity desserts because I have an idea blueberry crisp is better than a piece of cake.

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?

    My mom made good mashed potatoes but basically wasn't a terrific cook. I think she is just one of those people who doesn't care all that much about food. My father was a good cook. I loved his pinto beans and ham hocks (still my favorite food).

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?

    Well, I expect to like everything. . . but I tried sushi for the first time without knowing the fish was raw and loved it. I'm glad that happened now--otherwise I might have had a real mental block about eating raw fish.

    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what?

    You know, I don't really make sugar cookies. Mine never look as good as the ones in the magazines. I may try Martha's recipe soon (that is, if I don't make hermits again).

    On the healthy cookie front, there's this English treat called "flapjacks" some of you might be interested in. It's basically just rolled oats with butter and sugar (and some kind of sugar syrup), all mixed together and then baked and cut into "fingers," as they say here. They sound simple but they are DYNAMITE.

    I'll have to post a recipe (I know, I know, some of you are still waiting patiently for the kraut recipe).

    not that I can think of .

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies?
    no

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?
    when I lived with my parents I loved it when she made chili or pizza burgers but now that I no longer live with them I have had both of these things and don't like either, even though she hasn't changed her recipes. My taste buds just changed.

    . What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?
    meatloaf. I knew I liked it but I didn't think dh and kids would, but when I made it they were asking for seconds.

    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what?
    I tried to make the roll out ones at Christmas time(my first experience with it) but I didn't like the recipe I used so I didn't end up frosting them. Maybe later in the year I will try it again.

    Not one I can think of.

    2. Do you make any health food bars or cookies?

    I try to make most things as healthy as possible, but when it comes down to certain things (chocolote chip cookies etc), I just make them as they are. If I'm going to have a cookie, I'm going to have a cookie! I tried skimping on fat, but found myself not really being satisfied with the healthier versions so I gave it up.

    3. What was your favorite thing/meal your mom cooked when you were growing up?

    I always loved when we had Mexican. If we had tacos I would always omit the shell and have a heap of toppings, kind of like a taco salad. I still do the same thing.

    4. What food did you try that you didn't think you'd like and you actually did? How about your dh/so/children?

    Oysters, spinach. I thought I'd hate both and I love them.


    5. Do you make sugar cookies--rollout ones or drop by a spoon ones? Do you frost them and with what?

    I make roll out sugar cookies. I never really liked them before, but now they are one of my favorites. I like them with a thin layer of frosting. I usually just do a confectioners sugar mixture. Yumm, you got me in the mood, I'll have to make them soon.
