The last few weeks, I’ve share a one of my favorite meals from the What’s Cookin’ in Spalding Cookbook, the original version, Salisbury Steak and Green Bean Casserole. Now, a dessert that goes great with this meal is a delightfully easy Apple Dessert.

During this holiday season, we are grateful to the farmers and ranchers who raise and produce our food! If you have questions about your food, feel free to ask any of the CommonGround Nebraska volunteers! Click here to learn more about them and to contact them.
