Sandy’s Favorite Recipes
These recipes come from a cookbook that has been gently used for many years and is even signed by the author. It has 222 pages of wonderful recipes with an added section of helpful hints and measurements. The recipes represented here are some of Sandy’s tried and true favorites.
Taken from the cookbook: The Way to a Man’s Heart Cookbook by Geneva M. Morris, This book was given to Sandy’s mother who passed it down to Sandy.
1 ½ cup sugar, scant
½ cup water
½ cup vinegar
Boil the above together. Cool and add ¼ cup oil.
Add 1 large can sauerkraut (1lb.11oz.)
I medium onion, diced
½ cup celery
1 small green pepper, diced
¼ cup diced pimiento
Mix all the above ingredients together and let marinate at least overnight in refrigerator. Good as long as it lasts.
Sandy’s comments, “This is very good. If you don’t like Kraut you may not like it”.

Carrot Cake (Delorese)
Sandy says “I just call this cake plain carrot cake.”
2 cups plus 1 tbsp flour
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ cup buttery flavor oil
3 cups finely grated carrots
Cream sugar and oil; add eggs, one at a time. Sift flour with all dry ingredients and add a few spoonfuls at a time, mixing well each time, until all flour has been used. Add grated carrots and mix well. Bake in a 9 x 13 inch greased pan in 350 degree oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until toothpick stuck in center comes out clean. May be made in layers, if you prefer. Baking time will be less for layers. Bake on top shelf of oven. Burns easily. If cake is browning too fast at 350 degrees, reduce heat to 325 degree. Cut in two lengthwise and frost with the following.
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 stick butter or margarine
1 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
At room temperature, cream butter and cheese until well blended. Add sugar which has been sifted, a few spoonfuls at a time, until all is used. Add vanilla and mix well. Add chopped nuts. After the cake has been cut in two lengthwise, it can still be cut in layers, if you like. Use a very sharp, thin knife.
(You will be missing an excellent treat, if you do not make this cake. It is delicious.)
