Tossed Green Salad with Fruit and Nuts
Everything you've added to this salad sounds delicious and the "taster in my head" can't wait to try it. We enjoy mixing different nuts, seeds and dried or fresh fruits to all sorts of salads as well as breads. You grow so many of Florida's fruits and vegetables...

Sweet Acorn Squash
Squash has always been a holiday favorite, and Acorn or Butternut Squash are treated very much the same way. Full of flavor as well as being good for us makes it a great everyday choice too. Thumbs Up. Pookarina

Deviled Beef
Probably a bit too spicy for us, but I'll bet the flavor is just delicious. On top of everything else, I have an ulcer now, and I really have to be careful. Next thing, I'll be losing my head if it comes untied. Thanks for another great recipe to share with...

Spenard Glazed Rhubarb Turnabout
My sweet hubby just loves rhubarb. Growing up in Florida, we didn't grow rhubarb, so I never ate it until I went to NC after I was in my early 40's. I love it too now, and I don't need to add the strawberries to it in order to enjoy it, but love the flavor...

Prune Cake
