Sometimes the best recipes out there are the basic Old Fashioned Country Recipes. These vintage recipes are the classic dishes that you may have had either at Grandma's house or at home growing up.
How to Make Old Fashioned Country Recipes at Home
Even though over time some of the ingredients may have had to be adapted, these dishes are still family favorites today.
When you think back to your childhood, what are some of your favorites? Tuna Noodle Casserole? Spaghetti? Goulash? Hamburger SOS? Homemade Mac and Cheese?
I don't know about you, but there is just something about making these dishes that are good for my soul. They are delicious warm bowls of comfort. Granted they may look and taste a bit different now, but they are still just as good.
Here is a list of some of the basic supplies that you will need to create some of the dishes. Don't worry though, if you have regular cookware, they will work just as well.
- Cast iron cookware - if you haven't tried cooking on cast iron, I encourage you to at least buy one pan and try it. I use mine 90% of the time.
- Aluminized Steel Loaf Pan - I had heard these were a must. I finally got one to try. Now that I have, I will never use glass to bake bread or meatloaf again. These are amazing.
- Stand Mixer - I know these cost a bit upfront, however, once you buy one, it will probably be the only one you ever buy. I have had my Kitchen Aid now for over 15 years and it's still running strong. I had gone through several before this one.

These are the type of recipes that are rib sticking good. They are also great for any time of the day and recipes like the Buttermilk Biscuits, can be served with a variety of different meals.

One of my favorite things about pasta dishes is that there are so many different ways you can make them. Plus, they are great hot or cold and they work great for picnics, family get togethers, and potlucks.

I love making homemade biscuits. Thank you so much for sharing.
My grandfather was a cook on a big Navy ship. He used to tell us the best stories about it. But his favorite was when he used to make the crews favorite dish. It was S.O.S., which he got a kicked out of telling us stood for Shit On a Shingle.
