Cinnamon Rolls

I like  to put this recipe together in a bread machine before baking off in the oven.

If you use a bread machine, make sure you know the order of ingredients. Some machines  put dry ingredients first then wet. Others, do the opposite.

Cheese Cake from Joan

This recipe was in Joan's recipe book. It is remarkably similiar to the one Elaine Welland gave Joan in 2010. The difference is, this one works. The directions for Elaine's 'Cheese Pie' do not work. 

The ingredients here are double what Elaine's are.

This cake is not baked with a graham cracker crust.

I use the crust from Elaine's recipe with this one and it is as delicious as Elaine describes.

BTW Joan and Elaine have been friends since high school. It makes sense that Elaine would have given Joan the recipe long ago. The second copy came when I requested the recipe, not realizing that Joan probably had it all along.

Congo Cookie Bars

I don't know where Mom got this recipe, but it was one of hers and my favorite cookies.

OGUNQUIT BAPTIST CHURCH INDIAN PUDDING

My parents, Barbara Moran Mackie and John Mackie vacationed in Maine from the time Jackie and I were 4 and 5.  When they retired that's where they went.  They joined the Ogunquit Baptist Church, a beautiful old one and were part of much that went on there from rummage sales to suppers and mother was the church secretary for a number of years.

Indian Pudding is an old New England recipe and the original was a little more involved.  Whenver the church put on their suppers for the tourists in summer and the residents the rest of the year they had their version of Indian Pudding.  It even was printed in their local paper.

The original was made with cornmeal and took much longer to cook.  Cornflakes create nearly the same results.

RACHAEL'S MEAT BALLS

Nanna and my mother both used to make this quite a bit.  Don't know who Rachael was.

A quick and easy supper.
