Menu Review – Week of 4/14/24

I think my goal in life it to cook my way through the internet and back issues of Taste Of Home! My hubby often says to me, “remember that (insert favorite dish) you made.” I always respond “Nope, I don’t recall where I got that recipe from”. My goal with my menu reviews is to link to the meals each week that received a 4 or 5 starts out of 5. Maybe I will even make them again??

We had a great week of many new recipes that we loved. Hopefully this will allow hubby to look back and find that recipe he loved!

Easy Meal for your busy weekday! Many times I make this salad the evening before to have it ready the next day when I return from work. Especially helpful on busy nights.

  • ¾ cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped slivered almonds
  • 1-1/4 cups mayonnaise (approximately)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in mixing bowl. Cover and chill until ready to use. Makes 4 servings.

Mom’s French Toast – Our Grandsons love these! – Rating 4.5

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner sugar
  • 3/4 cups milks
  • 6 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 3/4 tsp. Ground cinnamon

Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F or heat a skillet over medium heat.
Add all ingredients, except the bread
Dip bread slices into the batter, dredging them well on both sides, and place on hot, greased griddle or skillet.
Cook for a few minutes, until the bottom of the breads starts to get golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side the same.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!
