    Well, I haven't been on in a while and thought I would start a unique post of Farm Journal recipes and then I get here and see there is one going on now for FJ desserts. Great minds think alike?! Anyway, I have been trying some FJ recipes lately and thought we could post our favorites. I'll start:

    Corn with Cream Cheese

    1/4 c. milk
    1 3-oz pkg. cream cheese
    1 T. butter
    1/2 t. salt
    1/8 t. pepper
    2 12-oz cans whole kernel corn, drained

    COmbine milk, cream cheese, butter, salt and pepper in saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts and is blended. Add corn and heat through. Makes 6 servings.

    Also, I made "Brownies for a Crowd" last weekend and was bombarded for the recipe. People were practically fighting over the last brownie in the pan! I'll try to get that one posted later today.

    Good day!

    This sounds really good. I've copied and pasted to my recipe book. I believe I'll add this to my menu for tonight.

    Thanks for sharing.

    This is from Farm Journal's Best-ever Recipes.There are so many recipes from this book that I make, and this is a favorite, especially if you're having a lot of people in, it's make ahead!
    Overnight Tossed Salad

    6 cups chopped lettuce
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    6 hard cooked eggs, sliced (I use 4)
    1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen peas, thawed (2 cups)
    1/2 lb. bacon, crisp cooked and crumbled (I use 6 slices)
    10 sliced mushrooms
    1/2 cup sliced green onions and tops
    1/2 cup sliced celery
    2 cups shredded swiss cheese (I use 1/2 c. mozzarella)
    1 1/4 c. mayonnaise or salad dressing (I use 1/2 sour cream, 1/2 mayo)

    Place half the lettuce in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt, sugar and pepper. Top with layer of eggs, then peas, bacon, remaining lettuce, mushrooms, green onion, celery and cheese. Spread mayonnaise evenly over the top to cover. Place tight cover on bowl (I use plastic wrap), and refrigerate 24 hours.Toss just before serving. Makes 8 servings as a main dish, 12 as a side dish.

    Note: the recipe didn't call for mushrooms, I just put them in. Also I do not toss the salad, I tell people to just dig in, right down to the bottom. Enjoy!

    Hi, I'm new here, I just loved the Farm Journal Cookbooks. I haven't made this in quite a while. You really have to love oranges.

    Orange Chicken with Toasted Almonds

    4 lg. whole chicken breasts split (l lb)
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. pepper
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 (12 oz.) can water
    1 lg. (12 oz.) can frozen orange juice concetrate thawed
    1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
    1/3 cup dry sherry (optional)

    Season chicken with salt & pepper. In 2 large frying pans, brown breasts in butter on both sides over med. heat. (I only use my elec. skillet). Transfer all chicken to 1 pan. Add orange juice concentrate and water. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 min.,or until chicken is tender.
    Remove chicken to serving platter. Sprinkle with toasted almonds, keep warm. Cook remaining liquid in pan over high heat stirring until reduced to consistency of heavy cream, about 5 min. (Sauce may brown slightly) If you wish, add the sherry and stir to blend. Pour sauce over chicken.
    Serves 8
    NOTE: To toast slivered almonds - sprinkle on baking sheet and lightly brown in 350 degree oven, stir occasionally.
    To use whole chickens: substitute 2 (2 1/2 to 3 lbs) frying chicken cut up. Cook sauce for 30 min. instead of 20. Serves 8

    This makes a good company dish, watch that the sauce does not burn, as the orange juice contains sugar.

    Some of these sound good. I have never heard of farm journal cookbooks.

  • RE: Farm Journal favorite recipes
    FARM JOURNAL was a magazine printed especially for farm families. There were always good recipes in those magazines. I believe it was in the late 50's and during the 60's that they started a FARM JOURNAL Book Club. (Cookbooks only). It was fabulous and the books were very reasonable with recipes only by farm women. I have many of those books and use them a lot. I will try to post something.
    Perhaps this should be kept bumped for others that must hunt for something to post.
