Bette’s creamed ground beef on toast was the recipe most voted.

The recipe is very easy to prepare and very enjoyable to eat. It is one of those sandwiches that feel as satisfying as a full roasted dinner. Meet Bette at the stove..

Bette sent us also a second entry. See her zuchinni ground beef lasagna.

It’s so exciting to have won the bread book. I taught myself to make yeast bread a couple of years ago when my mother in law wanted “bean hole beans” & yeast rolls for her 75th birthday. My brother in law offered to make the beans if I would make the bread. It was only 3 weeks away, so every day I made a batch of yeast bread until it I got the feel of the dough and baking just right. Many batches ended in the trash but by her birthday we had lovely white & oatmeal yeast rolls that were a hit. The book will be used often.

A runner up prize

The second most voted recipe was sheppard’s pie from Liz, and she got a chance to fix and enjoy meals the healthy way.
