Cube steak (I used a family size pack)

2 cans (10.75 ounce size) cream of mushroom soup

1 envelope onion soup mix

3/4 cup water

Salt and Pepper to taste


Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low all day. Serve over rice, noodles, mashed potatoes or with your favorite side dishes

Thelma Lou’s Cashew Fudge

1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup milk

1 3/4-2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 cup cashews


1 Grease a 9-inch square pan. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the milk and continue cooking, stirring until the mixture boils. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

2 Gradually add the confectioners’ sugar until the mixture is of fudge consistency. Add the nuts. Spread in the prepared pan and cool.


1 Box German Chocolate cake mix

1 3oz box instant vanilla pudding

3 large eggs

1/3-1/2cup oil (depending on cake mix brand)

1 1/4 cup water (depending on cake mix brand)

1 8 oz cream cheese – soft

1 scant cup granulated sugar

1 12oz frozen whipped topping (I couldn’t find 12oz and used 9oz)

1 scant cup confectioners sugar

1 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of choice)

1 Giant Hershey bar – grated (not regular size)

Combine cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, and oil & water according to cake mix package instructions. Beat until smooth and pour into two 8” pans – greased & floured or sprayed with something like Bakers Joy (I spray them). Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Remove and cool layers.

With a STAND ALONE MIXER (important! unless you have a REALLY strong arm!) beat cream cheese and granulated sugar for 20 minutes. (when in a rush, I have cut the time down. But 20 min gives the best result in texture. Taste is the same.) Add in confectioners sugar and beat just until smooth. Fold in whipped topping, chopped pecans, and grated Hershey bar.

Frost cooled cake and enjoy! SO good. Even better the next day.

Note: “Scant” means just slightly short of.

Please share your recipes with me at P.O. Box 385, King, NC 27021 and I’ll print them in this column. Thanks.
