Autumn in Iowa: a time of fruition and of change, a new and bracing bite to the air, a subtle quickening in the pace of life. It is the season of the harvest. In your editor's opinion, the most beautiful time of the year. Naturally, we have done a little harvesting of our own in the fruits of which we hope you will delight.


Preheat oven to 450°.

Mix in a bowl:

1½ pounds of ground beef
1 cup dried bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon oregano

Then, stir in 1½ cups of tomato sauce. Spread the meat mixture into two ungreased 10 inch pie pans. Pour on top of the "crust", 1 cup of tomato sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese strips, in a checkerboard design. Add mushrooms, etc. if desired. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 450°, or until the cheese is browned.

Next time you go "tailgating" take along some of this tempting crowd pleaser.


Mix and brown: 1 pound ground beef, 1 small chopped onion (or onion flakes). Drain. Then, add 3 tablespoons horseradish mustard; stir in 1 cup catsup and salt to taste. Beat 1 egg and stir into the meat mixture. Pour into a greased casserole. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes. Serves 8-10.


2 ounces dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

Mix well. Then, add 1 tablespoon vinegar, plus enough beer to make a paste. Refrigerate.

HINT: ¼ teaspoon baking soda plus 5/8 teaspoon cream of tartar equals 1 teaspoon baking powder.


Soak the seeds overnight in brine, ¼ cup salt to 1 gallon of water for each 4 cups of seeds. Next day, drain. For each 4 cups of seeds, add: ¼ cup of oil and 1 tablespoon salt. Spread the seeds out flat on a cookie sheet and bake at 400° for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Store in air tight container.

I thought we had heard all the zucchini recipes, but I was oh so wrong. A sampling of this season's crop follows:


2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1¼ cups of brown sugar
¼ cup honey
¾ cup oil
½ cup plain yogurt
1½-2 cups shredded, unpeeled zucchini
½ cup finely diced bananas

Sift the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs until light. Gradually beat in the sugar and honey, until light and fluffy. Slowly, beat in the oil. Stir in the flour mixture with the yogurt alternately. Gently, stir in the zucchini and banana. Pour into a greased tube pan or bundt pan. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with a cream cheese frosting. NOTE: Also works with carrots.


Peel zucchinis, enough to make 6 cups grated zucchini. Grate, and then boil carefully until clear, about 12 to 15 minutes. Add 6 cups of sugar, ½ cup lemon juice and 1 cup of crushed pineapple, undrained. Boil for 6 minutes. Remove from heat and add a 6 ounce package of jello; orange, lemon, apricot or peach. Stir to dissolve. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and seal.

½ teaspoon salt

In the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan arrange half of the zucchini slices in a layer and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the flour. Top with cottage cheese mixture and half of the meat mixture. Repeat with remaining zucchini and flour. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and remaining meat mixture. Bake at 375° until hot and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

4 medium zucchini
2 medium onions
½ stick butter
1½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2/3 cup milk
3 eggs
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Slice the zucchini into ½ inch rounds. Peel and slice the onions thinly. Sauté the onions and zucchini in butter for five minutes or until golden. Spoon into a medium sized casserole. Combine half the cheese, the milk, eggs, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour over the vegetables and top with the rest of the cheese. Place the casserole in a pan of hot water in a preheated 350° oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until the custard is set. May be served hot, room temperature or cold. Serves four.
