For this week's blog hop...it's all about recipes...
Mr. B's mom (Lorain) and my mom (Remie) were wonderful cooks! So, I thought I would pick one recipe from each. (It was hard, since we have quite a number to choose from, so I thought I would pick two quick & easy recipes).
Lorain (of Portuguese descent) was born and raised in Hawaii. And one of the things I remember when I first met her as her newlywed daughter-in-law was the amount of food they make for get-togethers! Since they were not able to be at our wedding in Wisconsin, when we went to Hawaii for our honeymoon, they gave Mr. B & I a Hawaiian style luau inviting family and friends. I have never seen such HUGE pots and baking pans! And it was complete with a huge pig that was roasted in a pit dug into the ground.
Lorain's Corn Meal Cake
1 block of butter
2 eggs, beaten
3 tblsp yellow corn meal
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 tsp bking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
~>cream butter & sugar~>add eggs & blend~>add corn meal, bisquick, bking powder, milk & blend well with rotary beater.
~>pour into buttered square pan and bake in preheated oven (350 degrees) for 30 miinutes.
~>Spread top with 1/2 block butter while cake is hot. Serve warm.
Remie was born in the Philippines and married my dad, who was in the Air Force. About every two years, we moved and she made every place we lived ~ Home :o) She amazed me in that no matter what, when, where or who...she always had a delicious meal ready. Everyone was welcome. She did love to try new recipes. But often she would "create" to taste.
Remie's Panfried Beef & Onions
beef roast (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup flour
