1 pound ground beef, browned and drained

3 cups hot water

1 package dry onion soup mix

2 handfuls of spaghetti, broken in thirds

Boil together the above until spaghetti is soft.


16 ounce bottle of spaghetti sauce (I use a can of Hunts)

Heat to serving temperature.

Serve with Parmesan cheese on top.

Will serve 4.

Linda's Note: I add some sliced black olives and a can of cut mushroom stems and pieces, drained, to this mixture.


1 cup self-rising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup sugar

Mix together. Add:

1 cup milk

Stir well. Put into 9x13-inch pan.


1 stick butter

Pour over dough.


1 can peaches or any canned or frozen fruit on top of the margarine.

Bake at 350ºF until brown.

Serves 6 to 8.

Linda's Note: To make your own Self-Rising flour:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 teaspoons soda

Mix well and use in any recipe calling for self-rising flour.


1 cup butter

3/4 cup cocoa (unsweetened)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

4 eggs

1-1/3 cups self-rising flour

1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Spray an 8- or 9-inch square pan or brush with oil. Dust lightly with a little cocoa or flour and tap out excess.

In a medium pan, melt butter. Stir in cocoa and oil. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

In a bowl, combine sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour and remaining ingredients (do not over-mix, to avoid tough brownies). Spread evenly in prepared pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until center springs back when touched lightly with fingertip. Cool completely on wire rack before cutting into squares.

Serves 9 or more.


2-1/2 pounds ground beef or chuck

2 large peppers, red or green, coarsely chopped

16-ounce can diced tomatoes

1 large sweet onion, chopped

4 slices bacon

1-1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons minced or pressed garlic

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/3 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon parsley

1 teaspoon seasoned salt or beef bouillon powder

2 eggs

1/3 teaspoon black pepper

1/3 cup ketchup (or more as needed)

Onion and Garlic Powder to taste

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, combine meat, eggs, seasonings and remaining ingredients except ketchup and bacon, adding bread crumbs to mixture last. If meat is low in fat, add up to 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix well.

Press meat into a loaf-shaped pan, forming a dome shape. Brush top with ketchup and sprinkle with onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cover with bacon slices. Baste occasionally with additional ketchup during cooking, being careful not to allow oven to get cold or additional cooking time will be required. If desired, cover with thinly sliced onions.

Bake uncovered 1 1/2 hours.

Variation: Substitute your favorite barbecue sauce for basting.


(Even the children can enjoy this!)

1/2 orange juice (with pulp)

1/2 Sprite

Use an equal volume of orange juice and Sprite.

Mix in a cocktail shaker or blender and serve over ice.

Variation: Melt orange sherbet and re-freeze in ice cube trays. Serve orangeade in a punch bowl or glass pitcher with sherbet ice cubes and thin orange slices. A colorful punch bowl for parties and gatherings. Kids love it, too!

Linda's Note: If desired, use sugar free Sprite, and 100 percent Orange Juice. This recipe makes about enough for 2 people.


2 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

1-1/2 cups milk



Pastry pie shell

Beat eggs slightly, add sugar, salt and milk.

Line a deep pie pan with pastry. Dampen the edge of the pastry and add a one-inch strip of pastry to build up edge.

Brush the pie shell with melted butter and pour in the custard filling. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon and bake in a preheated oven for about 350°F for 30-35 minutes.

Tip: Do not disturb the custard while it's cooking; leave in place in open oven for 1 hour after cooking to allow to set.

Serves 6.
