**** BAKING AND COOKING CLUB**** Share cooking tips and recipes here. If its from a cookbook say where you got it, please.

Got a crowd to feed? Spaghetti is a favorite at the Crandals.


1 onion

Coarsely. Start it frying on low heat with a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pot. Stir every couple of minutes. Peel and crush then add

5 - 10 garlic cloves

When onion is translucent, then add

1/2 cup chopped celery (optional)

4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (optional)

1 cup chopped mushrooms (one small can)

2 tbsp. Italian seasoning

3 15-ounce cans tomato sauce

When it reaches a simmer, reduce heat an let simmer for a half hour or until sauce is thickened. Adjust the seasoning (salt? pepper? paprika? a little sugar if it is too tart?)

While the sauce is simmering, put a big pot full 1 gallon of cold water on high heat.

When it comes to a boil, add

2 packages of pasta to the water.

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.

Combine pasta and spaghetti sauce in a big bowl. It looks better if you dump in the pasta first.

Serve with

Tossed green salad

Carrot sticks

Grated cheese

When the garden gives zucchini, this recipe gives variety. It is possible to eat a LOT of these green squash with this recipe, the below amounts serve two.


Finely grate

6 small or 4 medium zucchini. This should yield 6 cups of grated zuke. Grate

1 small onion (about 1/2 cup) and mix in thoroughly with zucchini and

3 tablespoons salt.

Place mixture in a non-reactive colander and put a small bowl or plate on top of it to press out some of the moisture. Leave it sit for at least a half-hour.

Dump the mixture into a clean dishtowel, and twist and press until it doesn't weep green fluid when pressed. Dump mixture into a clean bowl. This should yield about 1 & 1/2 cups of pressed zuke.

4 eggs
1/2 to 2/3 cups whole-wheat flour

Stir until mixed, the consistency should be like thick pancake batter.

Fry in hot oil -- flatten each spoonful as it's dropped into the oil. Deeper oil will give a crisper consistency. If the pancakes don't firm up on the first batch, add a little more flour. They should be like potato pancakes -- crunchy on the outside and slightly mushy inside. Serve immediately with sour cream or thick yogurt.

2 cups fresh green beans, trimmed
and snapped
2 cups peeled and cubed butternut
1 1/2 cups diced peeled potatoes

5 cups water
1 1/2 tablespoons chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Hi Marion

Are you copying these from another source? The reason I ask is because of the spelling of Mrs. Dash looks like it was copied from somewhere.
