Dutch stroopwafels (translation: molasseswaffles) Foreign people love them, so I translated this Dutch recipe to English.

The simplest things are often the tastiest. At the height of summer here in Iowa we have a LOT of produce to choose from, and this is a nice and easy way to enjoy summer squashes and zucchini.

Bologna Salad Sandwich Spread I

Rating: Unrated

A girlfriend's mom made this spread years ago for our Teen Club Luncheon back in Iowa in the 50's. I asked her to tell my Mom how to make it. I made the recipe for my kids while they were growing up & they still love it. Sweet relish and eggs round out the flavor of bologna in this simple but delicious spread. Serve it on cocktail toast, or use it in sandwiches. The amount of egg, creamy salad dressing and relish should be adjusted to taste.

Smothered Pheasant

Rating: Unrated

This is my mom's recipe for preparing the pheasants my dad would bring in during hunting season in Iowa. I use only the breasts from the birds, but you can use the other parts of the pheasant as well. This makes its own gravy that is delicious on mashed potatoes.
