Strawberry Bread, Lemon Bars, BBQ Meatballs

Lane's sweet Mimi gave me a cookbook with her favorite recipes in it for a wedding gift and I treasure all her hand written recipes. This strawberry bread is one I tried this week. I enjoyed it toasted or warmed with a little butter.

Strawberry Bread
3 cups flour
1 tsp soda
tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups sugar 1 1/4 cup oil
4 eggs
2 10 oz pkg frozen strawberries - thawed
1 1/4 cup chopped pecans (I left these out)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix dry ingredients and add to the mixture of eggs and oil. Add remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Makes 3 small loaves or 2 large loaves.

These lemon bars are super.

2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter

Mix and press into 9x13 glass dish sprayed with cooking spray Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Crust will be light

4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
5 tbsp lemon juice
rind of 1 lemon
4 tbsp flour
powdered sugar for dusting

Mix well and whip again just before pouring over hot crust. Bake 20-25 minutes, shake pan to be sure filling is set. Sift powdered sugar over top as soon as it comes out of oven. Cool and cut with a wet knife.

BBQ Meatballs adapted from I made few changes to the recipe for the sauce. I noted my recipe

1.5 lbs ground beef
3 tbsp finely diced onions
3/4 cup oats
1 cup milk
salt and pepper

Roll into 1 - 1 1/2 inch meatballs and place in freezer. While in freezer make sauce

Sauce: 1 cup ketchup
3 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp Worchestershire
2 tbsp brown sugar
6-8 tbsp finely diced onions
1 tbsp yellow mustard

Take meatballs from freezer and dredge in flour immediately. Brown on 2 sides in a skillet with 2 tbsp oil. Do not cook completely. Place browned meatballs in baking dish and top with sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Enjoy! Lane had his on toast topped with mozzarella..mmm.
