RECIPEs

Some of our favorite recipes - you are sure to enjoy!

Japanese Icing
Here is a great icing for Angel Food cake. I received this recipe from my sister-in-law, Sheila many years ago. Angel food Cakes are so delicate and this icing is so easy to spread on the cake. It really doesn't work for regular cakes though. I use this icing only on Angel Food cakes & Chiffon cakes. (+ Story Bonus!)

Killer Coleslaw
At our Annual Rocky Mountain Sale, Killer Coleslaw has become a tradition. It is a tangy Cole slaw that is crunchy and delicious. One year we didn't serve it and everyone asked why it wasn't on the menu. Each year the cook had to keep increasing the quantity that she made because it was so popular. Over the years people have asked for the recipe, so here it is for those of you who didn't a chance to have any. It is easy and quick to make. Just go to town and buy a big bag of shredded cabbage and you can make this in no time.

Mary Cartwright's Pecan Kisses
This is one of our favorite cookie recipes. We make these at any time of the year as well as at Christmas. Mary Cartwright and her family ranched west of High River and owned the D Ranch and also the Prince of Wales ER Ranch. The Cartwright's were one of the early breeders of Arabian horses in Canada and so my Dad took me out there to buy my first horse. Mary Cartwright cooked for a crew of ranch hands and any visitors that happened to come along. She had very definite ideas about the Arabian horses and Welsh ponies that they raised and was a very successful horse marketer for her time. She told my Dad that I should pick out a colt and "just let the girl and the colt grow up together". So when the colts were weaned, we drove out to the ranch and loaded the colt into the back of our 3 ton truck with stock racks. Mary gave me a book called "The Schooling of the Western Horse" by John Richard Young and waved us on our way down the long dusty road. She said "you picked a good one so we'll see you at the Calgary Arabian Horse Show next summer." We were there, but that's a whole other story.

Fruit & Nut Shortbread
The following recipe is one that we really like. It is a good way to use up the egg yolks that were left from the Pecan Kisses. These cookies are very cheery and festive. They are easy to make and a colorful addition to your Christmas baking! Grandma used to make these.

Slush
This sociable beverage has been enjoyed by the grown-ups at Cooke Livestock for many years. The recipe comes from one of Grant's sisters and it is the perfect drink to relax with on the veranda after a long day in the sun, or at a get-together with friends. Slush does need some time to freeze, so be sure to plan accordingly, and you won't be disappointed!

Baked Spareribs
Krista found this recipe for the Greek ribs - they have become a family favorite. This is a great recipe for a busy day. Serve the spareribs for a family dinner or dazzle company with these delicious, tender ribs! Bake a potato for each person when baking the spareribs. Baked sweet potatoes also go well with this. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!!
