  • Hanukkah comfort food

    In ancient times, when the Greeks conquered the Jews and took over their temple in Jerusalem, they tried to force all the citizens of Jerusalem to worship their god, Zeus.  The Jews refused, and got an army together to fight the Greeks and their leader, Antiochus Epiphanes.  Although the Jews were outnumbered six to one, they prevailed against the Greeks and marched back into Jerusalem to re-take their temple.  

  • Got Thanksgiving leftovers?

    This week’s recipes are good if you have a little leftover turkey or ham and are tired of sandwiches.
    The first recipe is delicious and extremely versatile.  You can bake it in a casserole and serve it hot over chow mein noodles.
    Or, if you don’t have time to cook it, or your oven’s not working, or whatever, you can serve it cold on salad greens and sprinkle chow mein noodles on top and call it Crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad!

  • Serve pumpkin cheesecake for holiday dessert

    This wonderful pumpkin cheesecake will take the place of pumpkin pie at my Thanksgiving table this year. I’m a real cheesecake lover, and this is a good one for any time of year. Besides, I’ve never been able to make pies as good as my mother or grandmother did. My grandma Dillon made excellent pies, and pumpkin was one of her favorites. She started with a fresh pumpkin (no canned pumpkin for her!)

  • Susan's Super Spicy Shrimp

    This week's recipe is a new one for shrimp lovers. Shrimp has always been my favorite seafood, and I have experimented with it all my cooking life. I have so many recipes I usually just number them now, but this one gets a name and a new place in my recipe box.
