A Note to Smile about:

You may be surprised to find out that I have a pink loose-leaf recipe Notebook that I ordered from Woman’s day magazine during the late 1980’s.  It came with pink tabbed divider sections that I could write my own recipe categories.   I wrote these on the page dividers.

Appetizers, microwave, soups,breakfast,  beverages, salads, vegetables, main courses, and desserts.

There is a recipe for microwave chocolate chip squares, microwave lemon spice tea, hot chocolate rum.

Under salads is Confetti vegetables, rice primavera,  Spinach salad and dressing, and paradise rice salad.

For main courses, are recipes for Robin Leaches Chicken casserole using a whole chicken,  all-purpose herb shake ( to put on meats and chicken for flavoring),  non-fries skillet dinner,

for desserts- Recipes from cool whip paper lid -Mississippi Mud pie, Frosty lemon dessert squares, Patriotic Parfait to name a few as well as Jell-o recipes.

Dessert recipes for Blueberry cheesecake, Cherry crunch pie, raibow cake,  and a cookie recipe on a recipe card  for  Drop butter wafers.

The recipe for Meatballs and Peppers was in the back of this pink recipe notebook and it is an artcle that I clipped out of the Star Ledger section Accent: Food March 31, 1985.

Two more Low sodium recipes are Broiled Salmon and Spicy Shish Kebab.
