Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Frog Eye Salad

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. Flour
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 pineapple juice
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. Lemon juice
3 quarts water
1 Tbsp. oil
1 - 16 oz. pkg. acini de pepe
3 lg. cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 lg. cans pineapple chunks, drained
2 lg. cans crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups seedless green or red grapes
1 lg. Cool Whip
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup flaked coconut

Combine sugar, flour, and 1/2 tsp. of the salt. Gradually stir in pineapple juice and eggs. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Add lemon juice and cool mixture to room temperature. Bring water and remaining 2 tsp. salt and oil to a boil. Add acini de pepe and cook at a rolling boil until acini de pepe is done. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Cool to room temperature. Combine the egg mixture, fruits, and everything else with the acini de pepe. Mix lightly but thoroughly. Refrigerate until chilled through in an airtight container, preferable overnight or for several hours.

Note: This recipe makes A TON!! Even half is enough for a party or large family. But if you're like me and love this, then go ahead... make it all!!
