Apple Juice Refresher

Apple Juice Refresher is hardly a recipe … more of a tip, actually.

When I was a toddler I didn’t like milk so my mom put watered-down apple juice in my bottle.

Apple Juice Refresher is a light and thirst-quenching drink, great for those hot summer days.

Ham, Cheese, and Rice Casserole

Serve

Back when I was a kid, my single mom got some meal plans from the US government for cooking healthy meals on a budget.  This Ham, Cheese, & Rice Casserole recipe was adapted from one of them.

Christmas Bread

We’ve all heard jokes about the awful fruitcake that gets re-gifted again and again, year after year.

Sure, it has the fruitcake fruit and nuts … but Christmas Bread has a lighter bread batter that tones down the sticky sweetness of traditional fruitcake.  Try it once and it’ll quickly become an anxiously-awaited holiday treat.

This recipe was adapted from The Southern Hospitality Cookbook written by Winifred Green Cheney back in 1976 (~$4 incl. shipping, if bought used on Amazon).
