    Billy's On Your Face Apple Pie(Billy loves his pie, and he can eat if while on the wagon!!)

    5C. thinly sliced apples 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    3T. flour 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    3/4 c. white sugar butter
    1/2 c. brown sugar 3/4 water
    pinch sault

    Mix together flour, white and brown sugar, sault, nutmeg and cinnamon(I like to add more nutmeg and ginger too--play to taste). Mix in apples and put in a uncooked pie shell. Put 5 pats of butter on top of apples and the 3/4 c. of water. Put your crust on and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. I add extra apples, so sometimes cook a little longer. I come from a family of great cooks, pies being their top to make. I inherited my dad's long legs instead of the ability to cook like his sisters. But this one makes me proud---I have yet to make the perfect pie crust like my grandma. Billy would need a lot of napkins with this one!

    FANCY GreenBeans ..............................

    (Anything below FANCY was beneath the standard of Springfield until lately when they all started to dress like lower class and live in houses that looked like they were on the poor side of the neighborhood)...............................................
    2 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
    1 Tbsp honey
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    1 & 1/2 pounds fresh green beans
    2 slices bacon
    1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
    1/2 cup whole cashews

    In a small bowl, stir together the teriyaki sauce, honey, and butter. Fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes.

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the lemon juice. Drop in the beans and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until beans are bright green. Drain the beans in a colander and then plunge them into the iced water. Drain again and set aside.
    In a skillet, cook the bacon until very crispy, crumble and set aside. Saute the bell pepper and onion in the hot bacon fat for 2 minutes. Add the beans, cashews, and bacon to the skillet. Add the teriyaki-honey sauce and toss gently.

Slowly pour the warm topping mixture over the top of the warm cake, letting it sink into the slits; then sprinkle the crushed chocolate toffee bars liberally across the entire cake while still warm. (Hint: I crush my candy bars into small chunks as opposed to crumbs - I like to have pieces I can chew on!)

    Nat's Bunza in the Oven(It is really an knock off of the Runza Sandwich, but the Runza people in Nebraska get grumpy when small mom and pops shop use Runza, so the call them Bunzas. Bunza--well Nat has a bun in her oven. However, GL's main characters in the begining--the Bauers were noted to be a middle class German immigrant family. The Runza was brought over from the German-Russia families coming to the USA during WWII. So, this maybe something Bill, Trudy and Meta had eaten growing up. Bill later married Bert, so maybe she learned to make them for Mike and Ed).

    2 lbs ground beef 4 C. chopped cabbage
    1 Can of cream of Mushroom soup 2 tubes of crescent rolls
    mild cheddar cheese 1/4 C. chopped onion
    1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 pepper

    Brown beef, onion, salt and pepper. Drain. Add cabbage and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in soup. Grease 9X13 pan. Layer pan with one tube of crescent rolls. Add beef cabbage mix. Sprinkle with cheese. Then cover with remaining tube of rolls. Bake at 350 degrees fro 30 minuthes. I sometimes use two tubes of pizza dough. Often I do not add the soup and throw in brown gravy mix--no water.

    Maureen's Angel Foods Cake(In memory of Maureen Bauer, who should have never been killed off, but was an angel on earth as well as heaven). I would have loved to be cooking in the old Bauer Kitchen!!

    3/4 cups sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup cake flour, sifted
    12 egg whites (the closer to room temperature the better)
    1/3 cup warm water
    1 teaspoon orange extract
    1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor spin sugar about 2 minutes until it is superfine. Sift half of the sugar with the salt the cake flour, setting the remaining sugar aside.
    In a large bowl, use a balloon whisk to thoroughly combine egg whites, water, orange extract, and cream of tartar. After 2 minutes, switch to a hand mixer. Slowly sift the reserved sugar, beating continuously at medium speed. Once you have achieved medium peaks, sift enough of the flour mixture in to dust the top of the foam. Using a spatula fold in gently. Continue until all of the flour mixture is incorporated. Carefully spoon mixture into an ungreased tube pan. Bake for 35 minutes before checking for doneness with a wooden skewer. (When inserted halfway between the inner and outer wall, the skewer should come out dry). Cool upside down on cooling rack for at least an hour before removing from pan. My mom used an old soda bottle, back in the day when pop or soda came in a bottle with a bottle cap. She still has the same bottle she used when we were kids for her cakes now. We always had a angel food cake for our birthdays. When I was older, I had pumpkin pie instead, but I still think of this cake for birthdays. They are great with strawberries too!!
