The youngest of my three sisters, Tracy, has gone on an Instant Pot (IP) bender of late. Don’t get me wrong, we enjoy using our IP just like Tracy! I just like kidding her.Continue reading
My baby sister, Tracy, is on a roll this year with Instant Pot (IP) recipes. Here’s another one from one of her favorites cooking website call Two Sleevers.
This one looks really good and we’ll have to try it in 2020. While the recipe follows below, here’s the link to it on the Two Sleevers site.Continue reading
Tracy also has some comments about this recipe that she wants to share: Need comfort food? Wowzers! This is the most delicious way to cook lentils. I asked Urvashi (who is the author of all of the recipes I have shared this year) and she said it was okay to use any lentils but let me tell you that the whole black lentils are the yummiest lentils I have ever had! Don’t have an Instant Pot? Well, get one!!! Just kidding! If you don’t have an IP, just cook the lentils according to the package instructions along with the spices and herbs in the recipe. Lentils are so incredibly good for you and when combined with whole grain and dairy, they can comprise a complete protein. That is wonderful for a meatless meal or Fridays when you don’t want fish! This would be good over a whole grain pasta. Add a fresh spinach salad with other fresh veggies and you’re sitting down to one awesome meal.Continue reading
Tracy included this cookie recipe in the 1998 edition of the family recipe collection. I must be honest. This cookie wasn’t one of my favorites. Maybe it’s because they seemed too dry to me. Not sure if that’s accurate anymore as it’s been so long since I had one. It also occurs to me that you could take care of the dryness by drizzling some rum or bourbon on them. Would that add to the Christmas cheer?Continue reading

Like many in the US, we celebrated with the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey and all the fixings to include the coveted turkey dressing.
This recipe is part of the 1998 collection.Continue reading
Growing up in Wisconsin, this was one of my favorite meals. It’s just good comfort food.
After I was out on my own, I continued to make it from time to time. It’s been many years since I last made this so it was wonderful to have all the memories come flooding back as I was posting this recipe.
This recipe is part of the 1998 collection. Again, thank you, Tracy, for doing this for our family.Continue reading
This recipe was the first one listed in the first edition of the Tracy’s Christmas cookbook. So began an annual tradition that celebrated 20-years of recipes in 2018.
I have no idea the origin of this recipe. This recipe has been in our family for years as I remember from my youngest years Mom making them. The photo I used was the best representation of these treats.
Many thanks to my sister, Tracy, for starting this and shepparding it through all the years!Continue reading
In the first edition of the family recipe collection in 1998, Tracy put in her most loved recipes from our childhood. This is another good one that I continued to make after heading out on my own.
Like the Texas Hash, I made this for several years as my own family was growing but it’s been several years since I last made this one. I may have to give it a go in the near future.Continue reading
