I use more pasta than the recipe called for (probably at least 12 oz.) and have used salad macaroni or the little pasta "wheels" also. This would be perfect for a 5th of July get-together.

Pepperoni Pasta Salad Recipe

1 pkg. (7 oz.) sea shell macaroni, cooked
1 lb. pepperoni, diced
8 oz. Provolone cheese, cubed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 carrot, finely grated or shaved
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup black olives, chopped or sliced (optional)

Put in large bowl. Combine dressing ingredients:

1/2 cup olive oil
3 tbsp. wine vinegar
1 tbsp. oregano (I only use half)
Garlic powder, to taste
Salt & pepper, to taste

After combining dressing ingredients, pour over salad and mix gently. Chill awhile before serving.

This bean dish has been a must for all of our 4th of July cookouts for many years, and always been my "signature dish" to make every time my class mates get together for a potluck. It can be baked in the oven, or cooked in a Crock Pot, which I prefer to do, or else I will bake it in the oven and transfer it to the Crock Pot to keep it warm while serving, or to tote it anywhere, so it will stay hot.

Barbecued Baked Bean Casserole

1 can (15 oz.) butter beans, drained
1 can (15 oz.) kidney beans, undrained
1 can (22 oz.) pork and beans
8 oz. bacon
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup catsup
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
Pepper, to taste

Fry bacon until crisp; drain and crumble. Drain off excess fat in pan. Brown meat and onion in the remaining fat; drain. Mix with the beans, bacon and remaining ingredients in a large 3 quart casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, covered and then bake 30 minutes more, uncovered. Can also cook in a Crock Pot on low heat for 4 hours.

This dessert is heavenly and one of the best I've ever eaten.

Angel Fluff Cake Recipe

1 baked angel food cake
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of 4 lemons
1 pint (2 cups) whipping cream
Fresh whole strawberries (optional)

Break baked and cooled cake into bite-sized pieces and put half of the cake pieces in a 9 x 13 pan or dish. Combine sweetened condensed milk with sugar and juice of the 4 lemons. Whip the cream until stiff and combine with milk-lemon mixture. Spread half of the mixture over the cake pieces and repeat layers one more time each. Sprinkle generously with coconut. Refrigerate until well chilled.

Top each serving with a large whole fresh strawberry, if desired.

Fig Preserves Grandma Grizzard's

One cup sugar to one cup of figs is the ratio I use. Pour sugar over figs and let stand overnight. Cook the next day. Boil until candy texture or stringy.

Follow directions in Ball Canning Book on processing jams, jellies & preserves.

In memory of Sabra Gentry Grizzard, 1873-1972. I believe what made Grandma's preserves so good was that they were chewy (by letting them stand overnight).

I can remember going to her house and she would have great big
biscuits with butter and Fig Preserves. Grandma cooked for all fourteen of her children with lots of love.

Fig Newton Bars

1 c. butter
3 eggs
t tbsp. lemon juice
2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder

Mix butter, eggs, lemon juice, brown sugar and vanilla well. Add flour, salt, soda and baking powder. Mix well and chill.

Fig Filling
1 1/2 c. ground figs (1 lb. whole figs) or dates and/or raisins (I used my fig preserves)
1 c. water
3/4 c sugar
3 tbs. flour
1/4 c nuts
2 tbs. orange juice

Boil figs and water 5 minutes. (unless you use fig preserves) Blend in sugar, flour, nuts, orange juice. Cook until thick. Cool. Roll half to 18 x 12 x 1/8 inch rectangle. Put cooled filling down center. Fold each side over. Cut into 4 strips three inches wide. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

NOTE: Since I used fig preserves, I took them out of my jar and mashed them good with my potato masher, or you could just mash with your hands. Cook with sugar, flour, nuts, orange juice until thick. If you use the fig preserves it already has sugar added, you may want to on put less sugar. They are very

In the 6/12 newsletter Sheila Bama wanted crustless chess pie recipes. I don't have a specific recipe for this, but wondered if you had tried making the filling for your favorite chess pie recipe and baked it in a pie pan sprayed with non stick spray or a non stick pan. You might need to slightly alter the baking time. If you tried that and it did not work to your satisfaction, you might try baking the filling in individual custard cups just as you would for egg custard. I have crustless recipes for quiche, pumpkin pie, cream cheese peach pie and apple pie, if you need any of these.

Hi Nancy, Re: 6/18 N/L on baking potatoes, rub the potatoes with

Mother made this dessert mostly on "washday" when the black wash pot was a necessity for the wash job in the 1940-early 1950's. Homemade biscuits were made almost every morning for breakfast and were readily available for this treat! Yum!

Biscuit Vinegar Pie Recipe

Enough biscuits to cover the bottom of 10 inch skillet. Turn so bottom crust is
on top.

Bring to a boil:
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
Nutmeg to taste
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon oleo or butter

Reduce heat and simmer about 3 minutes. Pour liquid mixture over biscuits and drizzle with 1/2 cup milk. Allow biscuits set to absorb some of the liquid.

Serve warm and drizzle the excess liquid over the biscuits as you serve it.

I want to tell Judy in AK that I made her recipe for Mom's Bean Sprouts and Ham salad. I like it a lot. Of course I tweaked it to meet my tastes. The main tweak was that I didn't add the salad dressing/mayo. I think the French dressing is sufficient, at least for me.

I chopped up some lettuce and put the sprouts salad on top. I ate almost half of it myself. Definitely a keeper and a different salad. I too am always keeping an eye open for different salads. Thanks for a keeper.
