Hot Cross Buns

The Glen-Mor Restaurant served Hot Cross Buns only once a year on Easter, and because these were not frequently on the menu, no one can remember them. This recipe what I imagine the Glen-Mor Hot Cross Buns tasted like, even though I never ate at the restaurant.

Cream of Vegetable Soup

The vegetables are cooked separately then combined with the milk just before serving. I served this soup as starter for Easter dinner and then we enjoyed it as our dinner the next day. 

Servings: 10

Fresh 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter 1 large onion 1 bunch (1 lb.) celery 1 lb. carrots 1 lb. white mushrooms [...]

Baked Ham in Raisin Sauce

Baked ham is a great dinner party recipe because most of the work is already done – the ham is already baked and just needs to be basted and heated. We made this classic Glen-Mor Restaurant Sunday dinner recipe for Easter this year, with plenty leftover for upcoming recipes like Cream of Tomato with [...]

Banana Cream Pie

Preparations for Banana Cream Pie begin the night before to give the custard time to cool before topping with Whipped Cream.

Pantry 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 tsp. salt 1/3 cup all-purpose [...]

Raisin Sauce

I used fresh raisins from a market instead of the normal boxed variety in the grocery store. We will have to make another batch with the (cheaper) boxed raisins to decide if there is a difference. The recipe as written with the fresh raisins in delicious.

Servings: 3 cups

Fresh 1 lemon 1 [...]

Salmon Steaks with Hollandaise Sauce

The Glen-Mor Restaurant served bone-in salmon steaks, as pictured here. The addition of the Hollandaise Sauce makes this a decadent meal, so bring your appetite.

French Onion Soup

 This soup is very close to the original Glen-Mor Restaurant original according to Jim. I love the richness of French Onion Soup and usually order it at restaurants without the croutons or cheese. But the combination of all three in this recipe is delicious.

Servings: 6

Fresh    8 large yellow or red [...]

Crab Cakes

I serve these as appetizers at dinner parties, but these can also be an entree – just increase the portion size per person. The Glen-Mor Restaurant served Cod Fish Cakes and didn’t serve Crab Cakes, but we both enjoy Crab Cakes so much a menu adjustment is justified.

Servings: 6 (2 crab cakes [...]
