I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Carrot Cake (Grandma Fish)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 c vegetable oil

3 eggs, one at a time

2 tsp vanilla

1-8oz can crushed pineapple

2 c carrots, grated

½ c chopped nuts (optional; I don’t use them)

Sift together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix Well. Add carrots (and nuts). Pour into greased 9x13 glass pan. Bake at 325° for 45-50 min (till toothpick comes out clean).

Lemon Sauce

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1 c boiling water

Combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and nutmeg. Gradually add boiling water and cook over medium heat until thick and clear. Add butter and lemon juice. Blend thoroughly. Pour over individual portions right before serving (otherwise it gets soggy).
