Pistachio Cake

This is a must keep cake recipe that you will find yourself making again and again.    We have used this cake for birthdays, holidays, and for just an all around snacking cake.  Pistachio Cake  is a lovely green show stopper that can be used on those holidays such as Christmas or Saint Patrick's Day to help reinforce those holiday colors.

I first tried this cake at my husband's cousins house.  We had been invited on many occasions to  attend dinner or picnic at her home.   Immediately after tasting this cake, I had to have the recipe. 

Yes, there are several versions of this recipe on the web.  However, this is the only version I have ever made.   It is so moist and delicious and it has become one of our family favorites.  

Give it a try and see what your family thinks.

My Mother's Old Fashioned Sloppy Joe's

My mother always made the best Sloppy Joe's.   I am not at all surprised, she made a lot of really good food the best.

Ha, ha, ha.  Don't we all think that our Mother's or Father's are the best at most anything they do.   I suppose we go through stages in our lives where our parents are lower or higher on that pedestal.    My mom was a really good cook.   One of the many things she was praised for and kept her high on that pedestal.   She had a lot of kids to please so she had many recipes that she could make to stretch the basic ingredient's to feed the masses. Besides when that didn't work there was always the golden rule from back in the day, "this is dinner, eat it or go without".   We never went without.

A few of you will squawk that there is ketchup in this recipe.  However, what goes better with a burger than ketchup.   By the time you are done cooking this up, you won't even know there is any ketchup in there.  The apple cider vinegar gives a great sweet and sour tang that you'll love.  

Go ahead give it a try and let me know what you think.
