Pistachio dessert  
Here is that recipe for that Dessert I made at camp out.  

  1. Graham cracker crust: 1 box graham crackers 1 stick butter. Crush graham crackers. Melt butter. Mix together. Don’t get it too greasy. Press mixture in bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 min. Let cool until firm.
  2. With mixer beat cream cheese ( which is room temperature), powdered sugar and topping. Spread over a gram cracker crust. Beat instant pudding, cold milk and flavoring together. Spread over top of cream cheese layer. Refrigerate till firm. Serve covered with whipped topping

From Marilyn Evans Howard 2002:
This is how I usually make the spaghetti sauce.  I didn't have the sausage in it 
at the coast.  It also depends on how much spaghetti you want to make.  What I
made there is usually what I have to make when I am cooking for the kids
because they scarf it up & then take home the leftovers.  So for two - I
don't have a clue. here goes. 
IN A CROCK Pot Spaghetti
1 lb of very lean ground beef
1 lb of sweet Italian sausage
(Cook these in the crock pot until brown or prebrown them in a separate pan)
then add everything else & cook all day if you want
1 small onion diced
2-4 cloves of garlic (minced) depends on how much you like garlic
2-3 bay leaves
2-3 tablespoons of Italian seasoning
1 tsp ea. thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil, salt & pepper
1-2 of the very large cans of tomato sauce
1-2 small cans of tomato paste

This isn't from the campout, but Jeralyn Schnell Dykstra brought it to another event. 2003
Pear/Zucchini Bread
1 C. peeled & chopped pears, 2 C. shredded zuchinni, 
1 C. white sugar, 1 C. Brown sugar, 3 beaten eggs, 
1 C. vegetable oil, 1 T. vanilla, 2 C. all purpose flour, 
1 C. whole wheat flour, 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or comparable spices), 
1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 
1/2 - 1 C. chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans).
Pour batter into 2 large or 3 smaller greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees 
for 45-65 minutes depending on size of pans.  
Really small pans take only about 35 minutes or so.  (I used 3 small bread loaf pans)

I cut back on the brown sugar (2/3 cup) and on the oil.  
I used about 1/2 C. oil mixed into 1/2 C. applesauce as a substitute.  
This cuts back on the fat but still makes a moist bread or cake.  


From Sue (Don) Enright 2002:

Hot Artichoke Dip    

2 jars marinated artichoke hearts (6 oz. each)
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1 pressed garlic clove
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c mayo
3/4 c grated parmesan cheese

Drain and coarsely chop artichoke hearts.  Mix with remaining ingredients.  Bake in preheated oven 375 deg for 20-25 min. 
Can be served cold but really good hot.

Don is still looking for his salsa recipe.  He'll send it when he finds it.

Dick calls this his (Candy) and he hated broccoli before!!

Jan Fochtman Hinrich sent this one.  She adds "This is a recipe that people may enjoy having at this busy time of the year. 
They must use butter or margarine that has a lot of fat.  The low fat ones do not work.  I found out the hard way.  It is very tasty"  2002
