Crab-Cheese Pilaf

(click to see larger)

Happy weekend everyone!  This is a recipe for Crab-Cheese Pilaf.  It is from the Weight-Watching chapter from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook of 1963.  This was pretty easy to make, quite tasty, and could easily serve four hungry adults.

Palos Verdes Stew

(click to see larger)

(A quick note:  please forgive the lighting in the completed dish pictures, and in the video.  I did this too late last night and a storm was coming through and the light was just horrible.)  

Good morning!  I hope everyone had an amazing week, and I hope we are all looking forward to an amazing weekend.  This dish, Palos Verdes Stew, is a quick stew made from the GHCookbook of 1963, from their Weight-Watching chapter.  The base of this stew is really tasty, yet the tuna fish is questionable.

Chili Con Carne

Happy Saturday, everyone, and happy Spring!  This Chili Con Carne recipe, from the Weight-Watching chapter of the GH cookbook, is super easy.  It is a one-pot meal and a good "base" recipe to expand your chili making dreams.  Make it as is, taste it, and see what you would like to add to it to customize it as your own.  Nice and mild, this chili is sure to please most anyone.

Boeuf Bourguignon II

(click to see larger)

Happy Weekend!  This is another recipe from the Weight-Watching chapter from the GH Cookbook.  There is a few steps in this recipe yet it was quite easy to make.  The recipe says that you can make this the day ahead if you want, and so I made this last night, let it cool, and then warmed it up today.  Since this is a "dieters" recipe the serving size says 6, yet if you want a "normal" serving size this would probably feed 3 people, or 2 hungry folks.

Hello!  I hope you are having a great weekend!  The weather around here is so lovely.  The sun is out and melting the rest of the ice on the ground.  I'm celebrating this wonderful change in weather by making the next recipe in the Family Weight Watching chapter from the GH Cookbook of 1963.  I present to you Chicken Livers in Wine (3 servings).

New Chapter

Tomorrow I will be making the first recipe out of the Family Weight-Watching chapter in the Good Housekeeping Cookbook of 1963.  I will be cooking my way through this cookbook.  If you have been a reader for a while you will recall that I started this a couple of years ago.  Once I got too sick I had to abandon it.  When I was flipping through the cookbook I noticed this chapter near the front, and at the end of the chapter they provided a handful of recipes - I had completely missed this before.

The recipes in this chapter are:

  • Appetizer Soup
  • Chicken Livers in Wine
  • Boeuf Bourguignon II
  • Chili Con Carne
  • Palos Verdes Stew
  • Baked Swordfish Au Gratin
  • Crab-Cheese Pilaf
  • Zucchini Parmigiana
  • Raspberry Parfait
  • Lemon Snap Cookies
  • Slim-Jim Topping

Starting Over

Hello everyone!

I'm starting this completely over.  All old posts have been deleted, and I will start adding new ones soon.  The old food posts that were on here will be redone.  I will also be adding posts regarding my brain tumor/recovery, and possibly other things as well.

The first recipe will be posted by March 1st.  See you then!
