Grandma Pruit’s Vinegar Pie This historic pie has been in our family for many generations and is always at all of the family get-togethers.

Creamy Chipped Beef Fondue My mother often served fondue on Christmas Eve and I've since followed in that tradition.

It's nice to offer a hearty appetizer that requires very little work.

Meat and Potato Patties During World War II, when meat was rationed and had to be purchased with tokens, this recipe went a long way in feeding a family.

To this day, I still reach for it whenever I want something different from regular hamburgers.

Hearty Navy Bean Soup My family loves navy bean soup! Beans were a commodity you did not survive without in the '30s.

This excellent navy beans and ham soup is a real family favorite of ours and I make it often.
