Some people asked for the Broccoli Salad recipe so here it is:

1 lb bacon

3  bunches of broccoli, cleaned & cut into small flowers

1/2 cup of raisins

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 medium red onion, finely chopped (I did not add this)

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

Cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Crumble and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli, raisins, sumnflower seeds and onion.

In a small bowl, stir together mayo, sugar and vinegar until well blended.

Spoon the dressing over broccoli mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle bacon over salad & toss. cover and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Enjoy!

Several people asked for the Ziti recipe so here it is:


1/2 lb of dried ziti or penne pasta (whole wheat)

16oz ricotta cheese

3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

3 cups spaghetti sauce (I use Prego)

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup sugar

Boil ziti in pot of water with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon salad oil

for 10 minutes, drain and then return pasta to pot.

Stir in the ricotta cheese and half of the mozzarella in with the cooked pasta.

Put pasta in a separate bowl and mix in the sugar.

Pour half of the sauce in a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish to make the  first layer.

Then put the ziti-cheese mixture in the casserole to make the 2nd layer.

Pour the rest of the sauce on top for the third layer.

Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese on top.

Bake uncovered at 350* for 30 minutes.

We had a wonderful time scrapping to the oldies, sharing ideas, and learning new techniques. I will post pictures next week since my camera is in California with my daughter…
