Quilters like to cook . . . Quilters like to eat! Here are links to recipes for quilters by quilters.
Recipe – Snickers Salad I received this recipe from two friends, Dawn and Lori. It is more delicious when the flavors have a couple of hours to meld together.
Recipe – No-crust coconut pie This is an oldie but goodie, invented back in the day when “impossible pies” were popular. I obtained this recipe from a co-worker, Arlene. We both worked in the library at Dallas Theological Seminary in the 80s.
Lunch Lady Brownies The flavor and texture of these brownies will take you back to elementary school when the cafeteria ladies cooked from scratch! Jill found this recipe to share with our Quilting Circle.
Recipe – Apple Cake The perfect cake for fall days; while baking, it scents my kitchen with cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a favorite of my son, Josh.
Recipe – Liz’s Cornbread This deluxe cornbread recipe is from my sister, Liz. It’s a hit at every potluck. (Her other specialty is Pumpkin Roll for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t managed to “steal” that recipe yet.)
Recipe – Corn Salsa From my friend, Kathy, who only shares the very best recipes.
Recipe – Mexican Pinwheels and Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas Potluck and company favorites from my long time friend, Bonnie G.
Recipe – Crustless Spinach Quiche A favorite from Stephanie M. She’s taken mini muffin sized quiches to many brunch potlucks.
Recipe – Tomato Basil Soup Popular in summer when vine-ripe tomatoes are so delicious; popular on snowy wintery days as well. From Stacy A.
