Okay - so I've never done a blog before - please be patient with me.

My mom was a great cook and I wanted to share some of her wonderful recipes with anyone who is interested.  She's been gone for 20 years now and I still miss her. 

I will periodically add recipes to the blog, try to tell you where they originated from (or at least what I know about how they came to be).

The first recipe is a recipe she was taught in her Home Ec class in the 1930's - it's quick and delicious.


  • 4 cans tomato soup
  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • grated pecorino romano cheese
  • salt
  • peppet


  1. Dice up bacon and brown in a sauce pan.
  2. Drain bacon fat off.
  3. Add tomoato soup (also add water as per soup directions)
  4. Salt & Pepper to taste
  5. Bring to boil and then simmer on low.
  6. Bring salted water to boil and cook elbow macaroni according to package directions.
  7. Drain and return to pot.
  8. Add a few ladels of the Tomato soup/bacon mixture.
  9. To serve - Add some pasta to bowl, add additional soup and sprinkle with grated cheese.
If anyone tries it - please let me know what you think.

Thank you for sharing. I don't eat bacon very often . . . have you ever subbed ground beef or sausage for the bacon? Look forward to more recipes . . . my grandma was a great cook from that same era.

ConkyJoe, I have never tried to subbed the bacon - I don't eat bacon often either, but look forward to it when I make this. If you try to sub, please let me know how it turns out.

Mariann, isn't it funny how the simplest recipes that you grew up with are sometimes the best? I miss my Mom too and it has been 15 years. She used to make the best tuna salad. It was iceberg lettuce and fresh tomato chunks with lemon juice, pepper, and a can of tuna. We always had it with buttered toast. I saved your Mom's Stovetop Meat Loaf recipe today and can't wait to make it. Your recipe above is a lot like the family recipe I learned from My ex Mom-In-Law. Thank you for sharing your Mom's recipes. Please keep going! (:

I did the one pot method I use my soup kettle and first browned the bacon and took it up on a plate with a paper towel and saved my bacon fat to fry my eggs for breakfast. the added the tomato soup or tomato sauce and eqaual cans of water and put the bacon back in the pot. then added my elbow macaroni and let it cook right in the soup as I do for my chili that I make and stir it good so the macaroni does not stick and I have a taste to check the elbow macaroni and when that is done I serve the soup with my soup pot I usually just put a cup of elbow macaroni because I cook for a family of 4. some recipes serve more people when it does the leftovers are plated up in foil pie plates and sealed and labeled and frozen for a future meal so none gets thrown out now that I am cooking for just me and some times my daughter is home but not very often. She is learning to cook too.

About Me
I am a single woman who works too much but loves to cook when I have the time. I also love to travel.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are my mom's recipes. We would enjoy many great times in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's mix of Russian recipes with her Italian influence. Also, trying to reproduce the love my mom put into each of her dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Successfully making my mom's Stuffed Cabbage and it actually tasting like hers.
My cooking tragedies
Italian Easter bread. One year when making the Easter bread (I make many batches and give out to many friends and family members.) Forgot to add yeast into one of the batches and had very flat bread - but still tasted pretty good.
