Sunday Dinner: Squash Casserole

Hearty menus increase as the thermometer reading decreases, but one meal a day — whatever time of year — needs its vegetables, so try squash. There must be a dozen or more recipes called “Squash Casserole,” and you will like this one. One of the good things about this vegetable is that local squash are […]

Sunday Dinner: Lonesome Cowboy Bars

Don’t you love the name of this church? It’s Pleasant Grove, and it’s located in the Upstate near the Greenville-Spartanburg airport, although it has a Greer address. A member of the Three Rivers Baptist Association, where Randy Bradley serves as director of missions, the church has most of the Baptist programs and organizations. The Sunday […]

Sunday Dinner: Julie’s Roast Beef

It can be a balmy spring Sunday, or one where the wind is banging on your house and whipping shrubbery to and fro. If it is the latter, you’ll be glad to be indoors. You’ll be even more glad if you have Julie’s Roast Beef ready to come from the oven. You’ll have the people […]

Sunday Dinner: Yum Yum Chicken Soup With Cornbread

An old children’s nursery rhyme says, “The north wind doth blow and we shall have snow.” That must have been written for another area of our country, because we shall all be surprised if these winds bring snow. We would be pleased, however, if they did blow and we had a pot of Annie Ruth […]

Sunday Dinner: Deviled Crab Casserole

This one you must try. The recipe contains good South Carolina crabs, is easy to make, has only a few ingredients, and tastes really good. You can make it ahead of serving time and reheat it for Sunday dinner, and we have Jane Griggs of Welsh Neck Baptist Church in Society Hill to thank. Rev. […]

Sunday Dinner: Hamburger Soup

Soups were invented for cold winter days. And what choices there are! There are cream soups and chowders. There are meaty and fishy soups. There are clear broth soups and soups heavy with meats and vegetables. Every cook has a favorite family soup recipe, and often it is a vegetable-meat soup such as this one […]

Sunday Dinner: Coconut Cake … and Frosting

One of the most pleasant things about doing this column is hearing from readers as I did on a recent day when someone wrote asking for a white cake frosting recipe. I could have helped her with that and answered her letter, then I considered that perhaps you may need a recipe for the coconut […]

Sunday Dinner: Green Beans

Fresh green beans from your supermarket, farmer’s market or your own garden are a staple in American cooking. They may also come from a freezer packet or a can, but the green bean is probably the third most-used vegetable after the onion and potato. Correct me on this if you can. In these paragraphs, we […]

Sunday Dinner: Infallible Rice Casserole

We are all survived by things we have done. Mr. Bell gave us the telephone, someone I don’t know gave us the paper clip, and we have the late Wilma Brown of Gaffney to thank for Infallible Rice Casserole. This simple recipe has a lot in its favor. It has only four ingredients, and you […]

Sunday Dinner: Fresh Corn Pudding

“Jake wanted me to call you,” daughter Elizabeth said, calling from Greenwood. “He says there is a storm, with the possibility of a tornado, coming to your area.” “Thank him for me,” I answered. I had just readied myself for bed, and my pajamas had a small slit in the seam on the left side. […]
