Add a Personal Note
..DIRECTIONS
1.Bake cake according to package directions for a 9x13 inch pan; cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Make slits across the top of the cake, making sure not to go through to the bottom.
2.In a saucepan over low heat, combine sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping, stirring until smooth and blended. 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!)
3.Let cake cool completely, then top with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with some more chocolate toffee bar chunks and swirls of caramel topping. Refrigerate and serve right from the pan!

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!!

Christmas Holly Norris, Bauer, Thorpe, Reade....Recipe.
30 marshmallows (large)
1/2 cup butter
green food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4-1/2 cup corn flakes
cinnamon red hots
Microwave marshmallows, butter, and food coloring on 1/2 power 2 minutes, or until melted.
Add vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Fold in corn flakes of granola until they are covered with cooked mixture.
Form into holly shape on waxed paper.
Add candy for berries while still warm.
Once candy cools, candy will not adhere.
Tie on a red ribbon and serve.

I did this when I was in first grade. We used a portable stove top as microwaves were not owned by to many people in those days. It was out in the country, still had party lines too!!

You would think they would have done some of this cooking during the BBQ and weddings they have had recently.

Phillip Spaulding's Seven Layer Bars. Some of his wives were a little flaky like the coconuts. Some were as sweet as condensed milk. Some were more nutty then the walnuts.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/3 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Place butter in 13 x 9 inch pan and melt in oven. Swirl to coat bottom and sides with butter.
Spread crumbs evenly over bottom of pan. Layer chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and nuts over crumbs. Pour condensed milk over nuts. Sprinkle coconut over condensed milk.
Bake until edges are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool.
