Sunday Dinner: Pork Tenderloin in Apple Marinade

Today’s recipe is an easy one, and you may have prepared tenderloin in a similar way. It can be made ahead of the time you need it, giving you more time to prepare the other parts of the meal. It is from Mary Frances Roberts of Overbrook Baptist Church in Greenville. I have used recipes […]

Sunday Dinner: Zucchini Blender Bread

From both parents, I got the “hugging” gene. My late husband Ed did not get such a gene from either parent. When both sets of my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc., met, it would take 10 minutes or more for everyone to be hugged at least once. Even if they had not seen each other in […]

Sunday Dinner: Sausage-Rice Casserole

“This is good,” I heard from four of my nearby diners at our monthly church supper. Two of our children also had pronounced it a good dish when I offered them a forkful for tasting, and I want you to try this one. It is Sausage-Rice Casserole, and I found it in the “Pastors’ Wives […]

Sunday Dinner: Zucchini, Pepper and Tomato Salad

This recipe is similar to one published recently, and they both contain good, fresh vegetables. I saw a similar recipe in a column a couple of years ago, but I made several changes so that it’s almost a whole new thing. It is somewhat like making potato salad; there are many ways to assemble it, […]

Sunday Dinner: Fresh Corn Recipes

There are a lot of good things about summer, but many of us would put fresh corn near the top of the list. Your supermarket will probably offer corn most of the year, but here in our South Carolina summer you can buy it at a local farmers’ market or, even better if you have […]

Sunday Dinner: Fresh Vegetable Marinate

Today’s salad was made for hot summer days. Several home magazines have printed similar ones this summer, but I’m sure none was as good as Fresh Vegetable Marinate from Rachel Stucker of Providence Baptist Church in Pageland. The recipe was published in the church cookbook, from which I have used other selections. In it are […]

Sunday Dinner: String Beans Excellente

“I want you to give Nena this recipe,” my fellow church member and lunch guest Ray said of his wife, Nena, as they joined me for lunch one day recently. I promised I would, so now I am sharing it with you. Those of us “of a certain age” keep things because we know that […]

Sunday Dinner: Lime and Tomato Salad

Being an honest and truthful person — both good characteristics for a Baptist — I will say about today’s recipe that you may want to add something. A few days ago, I was looking for a recipe from the several cookbooks I had spread out on the kitchen table and found this one. I prepared […]

Sunday Dinner: Carrot Soufflé

Today’s recipe is a good one that you and your family will enjoy. It tastes good, is easy to prepare, looks pretty on the table, and is healthy. I found the recipe in the cookbook published by Calvary Baptist Church in Graniteville. To help you with your geography, Graniteville is about halfway between Aiken and […]

Sunday Dinner: Ugly Duckling Cake

“I made that when I was a youngster,” my friend Marie said as we talked in the aisle of the supermarket where I had gone to buy ingredients for Joyce Tonroy’s Ugly Duckling Cake. The supermarket aisles are my primary social gathering spot. Marie and I have known each other since our children were in […]
