French salad dressing, carrot-pineapple Jell-O salad, cloverleaf rolls for when company's comingóbaby boomers who grew up in the Midwest are no strangers to these and many other recipes featured in "Apple Betty & Sloppy Joe."† The four Sanvidge sisters remember growing up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where "Grandma Noffke's cellar always smelled of apples," mashed potatoes were served with butter, not gravy, and the cookie jar was filled with snickerdoodles or Ginger Krinkles.† More than a collection of familiar, beloved recipes, "Apple Betty & Sloppy Joe" is a collection of shared memories that bring vividly to life those Midwestern people, places and habits so near and dear to many hearts.
