My Mom was a great Mom but when it came to cooking not so much. Her main goal was to make sure dinner was on the table at 5:00 when my Dad came home from work. She was really good at stretching a meal to feed the 6 of us and casseroles were her specialty.
I remember that big yellow Pyrex bowl serves steaming from the oven with tuna noodle casserole (always served with crushed potato chips on top), scalloped potatoes and ham,
goulash, etc. I guess in the 50’s there was no Food Network!
There was one dessert we all loved and she usually made it for special occasions like birthdays.
Remember Icebox Cake? It was whipped cream layered with Nabisco Chocolate Wafer made in a loaf pan.
This recipe is many steps up from the original.
