If you are planning to stalk me, listen up. Every Saturday the kids and I go to the library. I usually do a quick scan of the library discard cart to see what's available. Hardbacks are $1, Kids books and Paperbacks are .50 cents.
I was in shock to find Creative Cooking on the cart! I grew up on this cookbook. My mom has it and I love some of the recipes in here. I quickly grabbed it, and a 1974 After Work Cookbook. My favorite recipe is for Chicken with Mandarin Oranges and Almonds. Dumb name for the yummiest chicken dish. It's a creamy dish (not a low fat dish) that has just a hint of orange flavor.
This book also has the worst recipe ever (just in my opinion, as my mom will argue it's one of the best). Sausage Apple Pie. How can you take good ingredients like sausage, apples, cheese, pie crust and ruin them? You put them all together.
I've been browsing the book trying to find all the yummy recipes that I loved as a child. I know that there was another chicken dish, but cannot remember which one.
