Sunday Dinner: Salmon Loaf

I need to drop about 15 pounds, and not because of vanity or health. I made peace with my appearance years ago, and my health will allow me to make today’s recipe for many years. No, the reason for my interest in weight loss is my family. I want to save them the embarrassment of […]

Sunday Dinner: Cherry Congealed Salad

They were more popular a few years ago, but one doesn’t see them as much now as previously. I like them. They are pretty on the plate or buffet, simple to make, and usually must be made a day or so before serving. Now the fresh green salads are more often the choice. I’m talking […]

Sunday Dinner: Green Salads

So tell me, how many menus or recipes have you read which ended with “served with a green salad” or maybe “served with a green salad and hot rolls,” etc.? This “green salad” is a staple of restaurants and should be so at your own dining room/kitchen table for several reasons: It is easy to […]

Sunday Dinner: Blue Cheese Slaw

Today I am distressed, distraught and disturbed — not about our recipe (which is a good one), but about an article from a newspaper dated Feb. 12, 1989, concerning the decline of dinner parties. I found the clipping while cleaning our office recently, which tells you how long it has been since I cleaned. So […]

Sunday Dinner: Macaroni and Cheese

Who or when, I don’t know, but to someone at some time we owe a great thank you for, first, developing pasta (specifically macaroni), and, second, for combining it with cheese to make that staple of tables everywhere. This versatile macaroni and cheese goes to church suppers, picnics, company meals and Sunday dinners, is carried […]

Sunday Dinner: Breakfast Casserole

You may see this recipe in many church cookbooks, and you may have prepared it yourself (and if you haven’t, you should). It has been around for a while; I cooked it in my kitchen some time ago. I saw it again recently in the cookbook published by Lexington Baptist Church and baked it. The […]

Sunday Dinner: Cabbage, Collards and Kale

Cabbage and collards and kale. Oh my! I’m not saying that if you regularly eat these you will be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but you will be healthy and smile more. It’s fall, so it’s time for the fall vegetables, specifically the fall greens. You can often get these, which […]

Sunday Dinner: Pineapple Ice Box Cake

The envelope involving an unsolved mystery and containing two recipes has been lying in “the stack” for a few months. The two recipes were for Spice Cake and Pineapple Ice Box Cake. Mailed from Florence, the envelope contained no name, no return address, no church name — only the two recipes. Even the usually successful […]

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 […]
