I've noticed that recipes are scattered about all over the forum and thought it would be nice if there was a main thread where we can all post recipes, both vintage and new, requests for recipes, tips and so on. I've seen some really delicious recipes out there and want to thank everyone for posting them.

When my wife Cathy, president of the Rialto Woman's Club chapter, pondered the price of frozen ready-made meatballs for a fund-raiser spaghetti dinner, I blurted out that I could make 'em.

She asked for 150.

As I perused the ingredients available at the local Smart & Final, I put together this recipe. Seems all it takes to complete the "hot Italian sausage" flavor profile is crushed red peppers and fennel seed. If you find the gentle back-of-the-throat tingle too much for your taste buds, adjust or omit the crushed red peppers and/or Creole seasoning.

2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb. ground turkey
1 envelope onion soup mix
6 oz. seasoned breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. whole Fennel seeds
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. Creole seasoning
3 eggs
½ cup water

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray an 11x17 inch rimmed cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Knead ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until blended. Shape into 25 meatballs and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes; let rest 15 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Serve as desired or keep warm in your favorite marinara sauce.

For long-term storage: Do not bake. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 2 hours. Transfer frozen meatballs to heavy-duty freezer bags or vacuum-sealed bags and return to freezer. Use within 4 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking.

As for the fonts of some of the recipes...

Yes, some are reprints from original cook books. For example in post #3 all the way at the bottom, you'll see the acknowledgment to the original cook book and author. I try to put the year of when the recipe was published, but it doesn't necessarily mean it was published for the first time that year. Hope that clears up the mystery of the fonts. LOL.

Recipes pop up so often maybe there should be a special (permanent) thread. And yes, recipes do seem to be scattered about.
Although recipes on a washing-machine site seems a little off-topic, recipes CAN include recipes for soap, recipes for detergents ... or food. Hmmm. Food for thought. Excuse the pun

IMHO there are way too many recipes shared on this site to be posted in one thread. The thread would be way too long to download every time, which would cost a lot of bandwidth. If you are looking for a certain recipe here, just use the Searchalator.

I got a fun charity cookbook from a previous employer. We were the cellular subsidiary of a mid-sized operator of phone companies around the country (literally from Maine to Washington to Florida) which compiled one of these cookbooks with contributions from literally the entire country. It was interesting seeing a charity cookbook with lobster recipes in the midwest!

The oldest cookbook I have is a regional one called the Clark County Cookbook from South Dakota. It was published in 1914. The recipes are written in paragraph form, and are very sketchy, with few instructions. There are no casserole recipes, and no mention of ground beef. The book was funded by ad sales from local businesses, only one of which lists a phone number (Phone Main 1-2-4). Here are a couple of examples:

SPICED ROAST (Mrs. A.V. Jones of Ash Township)
For this either beef or mutton can be used. Prepare for roasting by seasoning with salt and pepper, then add 1/2 doz. cloves, 1 doz. whole allspice, 3 tablespoons sugar, one-third pint vinegar, two-thirds pint water. Roast very slowly until about half an hour before serving. Let it brown then in a very hot oven; add water as needed.

FRENCH SALAD (Mrs. N.M. Nelson of Raymond)
Drain liquor from can peas, add 1 pint finely cut celery, 1 cup blanched and broken walnut meats, 1 cup tart oranges cut in small pieces; toss together lightly, garnish with tender white celery leaves, cover with mayonnaise. Set in cool place till wanted.

BRAN BISCUIT FOR INVALIDS (Mrs. W.A. Johnson of Raymond)
2 cups bran, 1 cup white flour, 1 cup sour milk, 1 teaspoon soda, 3 tablespoons molasses, 2 tablespoons shortening, salt. Get fresh bran from mill and sift it, put dates stoned and cut up in the graham mush.

SATANS FOOD CAKE (Mrs. G.W. Richardson of Woodland Township)
1-1/2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup butter, yolks of 2 eggs beaten with 2 tablespoons sweet milk, 1-1/2 cups flour into which has been sifted 2 teaspoons baking powder, 6 tablespoons grated chocolate dissolved in 1 cup milk, whites of eggs beaten stiff, bake in loaf.


Here's an ad for a range from Nommenson Hardware Co., of Raymond, SD:


Embodies everything wanted in stove construction: nice smooth nickle (their spelling); ground and polished top; triple wall; 15 gallon heavy copper reservoir; pouch feed; poker door; heavy ventilated fire box; duplex grate; a large roomy oven.

When older recipes say sugarless, its not for health reasons, (diabetes, calories, etc), its for financial or rationing purposes. During Word War 2 here in the US, sugar was heavily rationed, so there is an abundance of cookbooks from the era with "sugarless"recipes, using honey, maple syrup, corn syryp, or apple cider reduced to a syrup, as these items were not rationed. Cook books both before and after the war posted these same sort of recipes, as during those times, these other sweeteners were much cheaper. Hard to imagine honey or corn syrup being cheaper than sugar now, but one has to remember, the only sugar widely available back then was pure cane sugar, which is and always was the most expensive sort. Especially after the import of Cuban sugar to the US ended.

Litter Box Cookies

rp2813's profile picture

Seeing as how Halloween is coming, this recipe might be of interest to the party-throwers among us who have yet to experience it.  Also good for April Fools Day.  I've made both the chocolate and gingerbread recipes and honestly, while they are edible, they're not irresistible and are more useful for shock value.  I prefer the gingerbread as the chocolate ones are really bland and flat.  Some of the optional mix-ins might improve flavor.  I have never used them.




1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup molasses

2/3 cup butter, softened

1    egg

2-1/3 cups whole wheat flour

Pinch of spice:  ginger, cinnamon, cloves

1 large box Grape Nuts (or store brand) cereal




Same as above except:


Increase honey amount to 1/2 cup and eliminate molasses

Substitute 1/3 cup cocoa powder for 1/3 cup whole wheat flour

Instead of spices, use 1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract


Optional Mix-Ins:


Coconut (tapeworms)

Chocolate chips

Butterscotch chips

Peanut butter chips

Chopped peanuts


Cooked spaghetti or ramen noodles (roundworms)


Microwave honey until it bubbles, about one minute.  Add the butter, molasses (if any), and egg.  Mix well.  Add remaining ingredients including optional mix-ins until desired blend is reached. 


Chill one hour in freezer or several hours in refrigerator.


Roll dough into logs of random length and shape in the appropriate diameter of cat turds.  Roll in cereal to coat. 


Bake on cookie sheet at 350 until done, 10 to 15 minutes.


Serve in disposable cat litter box on a bed of Grape Nuts with a cat litter scoop (I think I got those items cheap at Big Lots or similar discount store).  You can add special effects by decorating the box and scoop with melted chocolate or pudding.  A great addition to a Halloween party table that has been decorated with plastic flies.

Rhubarb Upside Down Cake

rp2813's profile picture

I like this alternative to pineapple upside down cake, which I find way too sweet.




2 Cups fresh rhubarb, cut into 1/2" slices

1/4 Cup sugar

1/3 Cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 Tsp grated lemon peel

2 Tbsp lemon juice

2 Tbsp bourbon or orange juice

1/2 Cup pecan halves

2 Tbsp butter or margarine


BATTER (I prefer/recommend taking the easy route and using a packaged white or yellow cake mix instead):


2 Cups all-purpose flour

3/4 Cup sugar

2 Tsp baking powder

1 Tsp vanilla

1/4 Tsp salt

1/2 Cup butter or margarine

1 cup creme fraiche or sour cream

2 large eggs


Optional:  Sweetened whipped cream


For topping, in a bowl combine rhubarb, sugar, lemon peel and 1 tbsp lemon juice. 

In a 10" skillet over medium heat, melt butter/margarine, add brown sugar, bourbon and remaining 1 tbsp lemon juice; stir often until caramel has thickened and is medium brown, 7 to 10 minutes.  Spread in a buttered 9" round cake pan with 2" tall sides.  Arrange pecans over caramel, scatter rhubarb mixture on top.


For batter, in a bowl with mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until blended.  Beat in eggs until smooth.  Beat in baking powder, vanilla, salt, half the creme fraiche, then half the flour; repeat with remaining creme fraiche and flour.

Drop spoonfuls of batter over rhubarb mixture and spread smooth.

Bake at 350 for 40 to 50 minutes or until cake is golden on top and tests done.  Let cool on rack 15 minutes.  Run a knife between cake and pan sides.  Invert onto serving plate.

Serve warm, topped with whipped cream if desired.

Texas Chili

58limited's profile picture

This is a very simple but very good and authentic Texas style recipe.



2 lbs ground sirloin (or sub 1 lb Italian sausage). You can use ground venison or wild hog too; diced, cubed, or whatever you wish.

2 medium onions, chopped

1 red bell pepper chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

2 (or more) whole jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

1 - 15 oz can tomato sauce

1 - 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes

chili powder to taste (I probably use 1/2 cup or more, I never measure so I'm not sure though)

cumin to taste (I use at least 2 tbsp, maybe more)

6 oz. beer



Brown the meat in a skillet. In a large pan, saute veggies in bacon grease. Add beer and cook 1 minute. Add browned meat and tomatoes, cook 2 minutes. Add seasonings to taste, cover, and simmer 30 minutes. If it needs to be thickened, use a little Masa. If it is not spicy enough, use cayenne pepper. Serve BBQ beans on the side.

3 rashers smoked streaky bacon

Discard loose outer leaves and wash cabbage. Blanc in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain upside down in a colander. When cool enough to handle cut out hard stalk and open out the leaves. Mix sausage meat and liver together and insert a little between each cabbage leaf. Reform cabbage and tie with tape. Put the onion, carrots, bay leaf, wine and stock into a deep casserole and place the cabbage, stalk end down, on top. Lay bacon rashers over cabbage and cover pan closely. Cook in a pre-heated slow oven (290° F. or Gas Mark 1), for 3 hours or longer, basting now and then. Serve the cabbage surrounded with carrots.

New York "Dry" Crustless Cheesecake


Serves 16


  1. 2 cups sour cream
  2. 4 eggs
  3. 1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted, cooled
  4. 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  5. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups sugar
  7. 2 pkg. 7 1/2 ounces each, farmers cheese, cut into cubes
  8. 2 pkg (8 ounces each) cream cheese, cut into cubes
  9. 1/2 cup flour


  1. Using your blender, you will combine the above ingredients, blending until smooth. You will have to do this in two batches as blender won’t accommodate this volume in one batch. So, for first batch, put one cup sour cream, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup melted margarine, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 cup sugar, 1 pkg farmers cheese, 1 pkg cream cheese and 1/4 cup flour. Blend.
  2. Pour into oiled 9-inch springform pan. Then repeat, pouring second batch over first.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Turn oven off. Let cake stand in oven for 2 hours before removing from oven.
  4. Chill thoroughly.


Cheese in Scallop Shells or Ramekins


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups grated American cheese


Pour milk over bread crumbs, add seasoning, half the cheese and mix well; fill greased scallop shells or ramekins; sprinkle with remainder of cheese and a few fresh bread crumbs and bake in moderate oven 30 minutes.

I hope to try this at next opportunity.  What is the method to "oil" a springform pan?

the Crustless New York Cheescake recipe looks really good. But I've never seen Farmers Cheese in a store here. Isn't it very much like reg, cream cheese, only a bit dryer? If so, do you think substituting reg. cream cheese in place of the Farmers Cheese would work? If not, is there another cheese like Farmers Cheese?

This recipe looks like something I will be trying, thanks.

I think dry cottage cheese would be a good substitute for farmers cheese.  Cottage cheese is mild tasting. Good luck with the recipe!

Glenn, I suppose it means just that, spread oil, corn, vegetable, etc inside the pan. I'd just try cooking spray.

Farmer's Cheese

Is really hard to find anymore.  We used it for many many years in pierogi fillings, but now I drain cottage cheese overnight and use it instead.  I'd love to find some farmers cheese again, but I wonder if it still exists...

So Matt, do you put the cottage cheese in a sieve lined with cheese cloth and let it drain overnight? I guess if I used a pint of cottage cheese, drained it should equal approx. the 15 oz.of Farmers Cheese required for this recipe. What do you think?

Perhaps you can find Farmers Cheese in one of those weekend farmers markets that spring up in urban areas.

Matt, I believe I've seen it at Meijer in the cheese/deli (not the refrigerated cases along the walls. I seem to recall it was in a vaguely kidney-shaped Cry-o-Vac package. Failing that, you might try a Kroger with the Murray's cheese department (Grand Blanc?)

I'll respond here---

Eddie, I just put the cottage cheese in a mesh strainer overnight, or at least 3 or 4 hours.  I stir it occasionally.


Jamiel. thanks for the tip, I'll check Meijers cheese section out - I usually look in the refrigerated section.
