PostHeaderIcon Chocolate Marvel Pie

Chocolate Pie  American FlagThis recipe has been in my recipe box for many many years and is just the best darn chocolate pie ever. Creamy, smooth and best of all – Chocolate! I’ve seen this made with graham cracker crust, but I prefer using my Never Fail Pie Crust recipe. 

Baked pie shell
whipping cream


  • 6 oz. (1 Cup) semi-sweet chocolate bits
  • 2 T sugar
  • 3 T milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Do this:
Prepare a 9 in. baked pie shell and cool. Melt chocolate bits with sugar and milk in a double boiler stirring occasionally. Cool. Beat in egg yolks one at a time then stir in vanilla. Beat the egg whites using an electric mixer until stiff then fold into chocolate mixture with rubber spatula. Pour into cooled pie shell and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream.
Please please do not use Cool Whip! Cool Whip is a dirty word around here because it is fake, fake, fake! If you use Cool Whip I will be forced to come and wash your mouth out with soap… but you probably won’t mind because that’s what it tastes like anyway – dish soap! Yuk.

PostHeaderIcon Swedish Meatball Sandwich

Swedish Meatball Sandwich  Swedish FlagEverytime we travel to Sweden I experience a new food that quickly becomes one of my new favorites and this is certainly one of them. What makes this open face sandwich so special is the red beet salad that compliments the meatballs. The type of bread used is very important and I found that the bakery at our Wal-Mart Supercenter  makes some exceptionally good fresh baked bread and rolls. I must tell you that I was shocked! 

Wal-Mart’s 9 grain loaf is excellent to use for this sandwich – please do not use commercial sliced white bread – at the very least you can use rye or limpa bread if you can’t find Wal-Mart’s 9 grain bread.
Speaking of bread… if you travel to any of the European countries you will find that fresh baked bread is the normal and with a variety that is second to none. Then there’s the fabulous desserts and pastries… but that will be discussed in a future post.


  • cold sliced Swedish Meatballs 
  • 9 Grain bread (Wal-Mart)
  • red beet salad
  • iceberg lettuce
  • soft margarine

Red Beet Salad:

  • 1 jar pickled beets diced vreally really small
  • 1/2 C Miracle Whip
  • 5 tsp juice from pickled beets

Do this:
Dice the beets into very very small pieces and mix in the Miracle Whip and beet juice.
Spread margarine on each slice of bread then a leaf of iceberg lettuce. Place sliced meatballs on lettuce and top with the red beet salad. Garnish with a tomato wedge and Bread & Butter pickles.

Swedish Waffles

Swedish FlagI have had Swedish waffles (våfflor) many times in Sweden and they are very easy to duplicate as there are no “strange” ingredients and the heart shaped waffle makers are readily available.
We had an early supper today and decided to make Swedish waffles for a late dessert. You may also have vanilla ice cream on the waffles, but whipping cream and strawberry jam is a must! m-mmm good 😀

Makes 6 waffles

  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 7 T margarine, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 3/4 C milk

Do this:
This is easy – put all ingredients in a medium size bowl and blend with wire whisk. Pour batter into preheated waffle maker and bake for 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Lightly sprinkle each waffle with sugar.
Top each waffle with a dollop of whipping cream and strawberry jam.
