Southern Living’s All-Time Favorites has a recipe for Slow-Roasted Pork that you can start the night before or when you have several hours to spend before serving. I would serve this delightful pork over rice. It will make eight servings.
Also from Southern Living’s All-Time Favorites, we have Butternut Squash Souffle.
Our friends at the Apopka Historical Society published Preserving the Big Potato, and therein they share many of their (not-so-) closely guarded secrets on how to prepare our favorite tuber that we know as POTATO. This recipe is Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup. It looks wonderful.
Paths of Sunshine’s recipe for Key Lime Pie looks very simple, and I, being a lover of key lime pie can’t wait to try it.
This recipe from Louise Ustler is from Northside Baptist Church’s Book of Recipes. It looks wonderful, and it really doesn’t take that long to prepare. But, you must refrigerate this pie for four hours before serving.
We love all the new recipes for cookie bars that have appeared over the last few years. Our editor’s wife saw one somewhere on the internet and thought she would try it for a ladies meeting she was going to attend the next day. Well, she made the goodies and had some left over which he, being a thoughtful coworker, brought to work. They were delicious! And very pretty with Christmas colors. He said they took a while to cool down, so give yourself some time before setting them out for treats.
