OK - I like to cook - and I think it would be interesting to have a collection of our very favorite recipes - the absolute best!  Here is my all time favorite:

Linda’s Casserole

 

2 pounds of ground beef

1 onion, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

 

12 oz – 16 oz  of wide egg noodles

 

16 oz  tomato sauce

16 oz sour cream

 

Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded.  1 cup is good, 2 cups is better!

 

Preheat oven to 400

 

Brown the ground beef with the onions,  season to taste with salt and pepper. Drain excess fat.

 

Cook the egg noodles as per package directions and drain.

 

Mix together the ground beef mixture, tomato sauce and sour cream.  Add cooked egg noodles, mix well.

 

Place mixture in a casserole baking dish, cover generously with the Cheddar cheese.  Bake in a hot oven (400) until the cheese in melted.

 

Freeze any leftovers to reheat some night when you don’t feel like cooking.  No one will complain about having this two nights in a row either!

 

I usually serve with hot biscuits (cooked at the same time as the casserole) and a dark green vegetable , usually peas.

Ok... This sounds funny but it makes the BEST Roast.

 

1 Box of Onion soup-use both packages

1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 Can of Cream of Celery Soup

4 Cups of water

 

Mix all of the above together in a roasting pan add whatever size roast you like,cover and cook @ 425 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours (depending on roast size).  The last 30mins remove lid and continue to cook.  The soup thickens up to the best gravy to use over rice or whatever and the meat is so tender and full of flavor.

 

So quick and easy.

Can we do desserts or just entree's? Being Italian I have a great recipe for Ricotta Pie (cheese pie) it's so simple even I could do it and it's great!!!

 

Other than that, my hubby is the chef around here and a really good one I might add, but he doesn't cook by recipes, he wings it and it's always great!!!

Ricotta Pie

 

3 Lbs. Whole Ricotta( I use Maggio's brand)

1/2 cup of flour

1 1/2 cups of sugar

9 eggs

 

Beat eggs until thick, add sugar, beat well, add remaining ingredients, mix well.

 

Grease  and flour a Pyrex dish, (if you use the pie size dish, this recipe will make a couple of pies, if you use a larger Pyrex dish, you can make one nice size pie), preheat oven to 350 deg., pour mixture into dish(if you like, you can grate some lemon or orange zest onto pie before putting in oven) and bake for about 1 and a half hours, top should be a light brown when done. Let cool and then refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.

 

Enjoy!!!

Kristen's Favorite Southern Squash  (So Easy!)

 

Cook a few slices of baken in microwave or in pan.  Cut into small pieces.  Meanwhile, slice up a bunch of green & yellow squash (the thinner the better).  Place them in a baking dish or pan.  Sprinkle a bunch (to taste) of dark brown sugar & pepper (again to taste), and bacon, and mix it all up.  Put a few slabs of butter on top.  Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 1 - 1 1/2 hrs (depending on how done you want it).  I go w/ well done.

The seven salad is kind of pricy to make so I usually only make it for the holidays or a pot luck thing (we florida people like to do the food thing at the shows!) but man, I love it!!

 

Naydene - my husband is going to love you for the banana pudding. And I am going to the store in the morning to get Ricotta cheese..

BLONDE'S COOKING DIARY

Monday

Dear Cooking Diary: It's fun to cook for Bob. Today I made an angel food cake. The recipe said 'beat 12 eggs separately.' The neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls.

Tuesday

Dear Cooking Diary: Bob wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said 'serve without dressing.' So I didn't dress. What a surprise when Bob brought a friend home for dinner!

Wednesday

Dear Cooking Diary: Today was a good day for rice. The recipe said 'wash thoroughly before steaming the rice.' It seemed kind of silly but I took a bath anyway. I can't say it improved the rice though.

Thursday

Dear Cooking Diary: Today Bob asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said 'prepare ingredients, then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.' Which is what led to Bob asking me why I was rolling around in the garden.

Friday

Dear Cooking Diary: I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said 'put all ingredients in bowl and beat it.' There must have been something wrong with this recipe. When I got back, everything was the same as when I left!

Saturday

Dear Cooking Diary: Bob did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday. (What?!?) For some reason Bob keeps counting to ten.

Sunday

Dear Diary: Bob's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast. All I could find was hamburger. Suddenly I had a flash of genius. I put the hamburger in the oven and set the controls for roast. It still came out hamburger, much to my disappointment.

This has been a very exciting week! I'm eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a new recipe on Bob. If we could just get a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with Chocolate Moose!

Drunken Christmas Cookies

1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer...Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another cup... just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit, Pick the frigging fruit off floor... Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who giveshz a sheet. Check the Jose Cuervo. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

Okay Steve, that was really funny. Even my husband was cracking up.

 

I cook without recipes.  But here's one for a crowd....

 

Spoon Tacos

2lbs ground beef

taco seasoning to taste

2 cans pinto beans

garlic to taste

chopped onion to taste

 

Fritos

Grated Cheese - we use Pepper Jack and Sharp Cheddar

Chopped Tomatos

Chopped Onion

Shredded Lettuce

Sour Cream - optional

Jalapeno slices - optional

Salsa - optional

 

 

 

Brown beef, garlic and onion.  Drain off fat.  Add pinto beans with juice from can.  Add taco seasoning.  Simmer at least one hour adding chili powder to get desired heat.

 

 

On a plate or in a bowl depending how big a pig you are, layer Fritos, cheese, meat and bean mixture. Top with other ingredients as desired.  I always serve this when I have 15 people or more to feed.  I double, triple, quadruple.  Well you get it.

One of my favorite appetizers: Sweet and Sour mini meatballs

Meatballs:
2 lb. ground beef (don't get it too lean or it doesn't taste right... I
like to use 80%) (You can also do this with Keilbasi)
1 egg
3/4 C. Breadcrumbs

Sauce:
1 C. Ketchup
2 Tbsp. Mustard (I use Golden's Spicey Brown)
1 Tbsp. Vinegar
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Water

WHAT TO DO....
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees
Mix together the ground beef, egg and breadcrumbs... mush 'em together and
get it all nice and combined...
Roll tiny meatballs and place them on a baking tray lined with aluminum
foil (to keep the mess off your tray).
Diameter of meatball should be about 1".
Place the tray of meatballs in the oven for about 15-20 minutes

Mix the sauce in a stock pot.... just dump in all ingredients.
Heat the ingredients to a boil because this helps combine all the sauce
ingredients smoothly.

Lower the sauce to a simmer.
Dump in your cooked meatballs and/or keilbasi.
Simmer for about 10-20 minutes.

SERVE!

Yum! This thread is awesome for my stuck-in-a-rut boring dinner life!

 

I'm an American girl married to an Indian guy - this recipe is a crowd pleaser with both cultures.

 

Chicken Tikka

 

1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

 

1tsp grated ginger

1tsp garlic pulp

1tsp chili powder

1tsp salt

2/3 cup plain low fat yogurt

4 Tbsp lemon juice

1Tbsp chopped cilantro

 

Mix it all together and marinate for at least two hours.  Grill until cooked, turning and basting a few times.  Serve with sliced onions and lime wedges.

 

Note - it makes the grill messy! I learned to cover the grill with non stick aluminum foil first.

My favorite dinner these days:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One bottle of Bourbon

 

If a friend joins you for dinner--add one more bottle to the table-- pray that they don't show up!

This is to die for. If you make it once it will be one of those keepers..

 

The secret to success is to beat the eggs really well..

 

Granny's Coconut Pound Cake

 

1 pound butter (real butter, unsalted - softened)

6 eggs

2 cups sugar  

1 - 7 oz. pkg. Coconut

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla

 

Cream butter and sugar about 5 minutes (less if butter is at room

temperature).  Add 1 cup flour and blend.  Add eggs one at a time. 

Add remaining cup of flour and coconut and vanilla.  Blend well. Will

be thick and heavy.  Spoon into tube pan (with high sides, like an angel food

cake pan, not a bunt pan)  greased and lightly floured.

 

Bake at 350* for approximately 1 hour.

 

 

During the last 5 minutes of baking:  Combine and bring the following

to a boil for 1 minute.

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

 

Remove cake from oven and pour glaze over the hot cake.  Allow it to

soak in to the cake then remove to cake plate.

Cool and enjoy!

That's it... From now on I eat at Miss Deborah's house.  I will no longer be subjected to brocoli, cauliflower, spinach, squash, or any type of greens () and she has sweet tea to boot! Life will be grand.  LOL

Nicci, Not only does Deborah eschew vegetables and serve sweet tea.....I heard from a reliable source that she has bourbon.

 

Linda, I made your casserole for dinner last night.  The kids really like it.  Hubby and I ended up eating salad.  The kids really enjoyed the biscuits too.  Next time somebody talks about how much a mastiff eats, I'm gonna show them what my four "skinny" teens eat. 

 

 

Okay, now for everybody who has squash coming out their ears and is tired of eating it.......

 

 

Take all the yellow squash you think you can tolerate.  Wash and slice medium thin.  Slice a sweet onion or three and make rings.  Open and drain a 16 oz can of chopped tomatoes or (even better) chop up 5 or 6 like you would for salad.  Open a can of chopped peeled green chilies, don't drain.  Grate 1 cup of cheddar cheese, the sharper the better.  Grate 1 cup of pepper jack cheese.  In a big skillet, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat to saute this dish.  Add 1 or 2 cloves of chopped garlic and your onion.  Brown lightly.  Add all the damned squash.  Cover pan and cook for 5 minutes stirring occassionally.  Add your tomatoes and chilis.  Stir through until hot.  Add all the cheese, lower heat and cover.  Serve when cheese melts.  YOu'll have to adjust the "amounts" depending on your squash tolerance but this is a pretty good guideline.  My kids actually empty the pan when I make this.

Deborah's email gave me food for thought.  I am a huge fan of good bourbon.  Deborah pointed out that there must be SOME vegetable in it.  Well, there is, corn.  And then of course there is a vodka from a potato.  Beer is made from hops and rice sometimes.  So, we have our veggie and our starch.  Does anybody know of a "substitute" made from a protein?  I think we may have just discovered a whole nother kind of liquid diet.

Ok, you can't throw out names like "Pumpkin Banana Bread" and not give the recipe!! That sounds great and I've been looking for a great banana bread recipe.

Alright Homebody....I could not find the recipe that I used but found this one on the internet and it was very similar to the one that I used......

 

Banana Pumpkin Bread
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 medium (1 cup) ripe bananas, mashed
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
   Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, butter and eggs in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy.
   Add pumpkin and bananas; continue beating until well mixed. (Mixture will have curdled appearance.) Reduce speed to low; add all remaining ingredients except nuts; beat just until moistened. Stir in nuts by hand.
   Spread into two greased 8-by-4-inch loaf pans. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool five minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.
   NOTE:  If using two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans, bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

This is one of my all-time favorites from childhood! It's good for large crowds to make ahead and just pop in the oven. You can freeze this in smaller portions before you bake it also. The onion rings and water chestnuts really make this dish crunchy!


 

Norma's Chicken Casserole

1-package of frozen peas(small box), drained of liquid if thawed.
1-can of bean sprouts, drained
1-8 oz. can of mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1-small can of sliced water chestnuts, drained
1-can of condensed mushroom soup
12 oz. of shredded mild cheddar cheese
3 1/2 lbs., approx. of chicken, baked, taken off the bone and cut into bite-size pieces
Salt and Pepper to taste
Large can of French Fried Onion Rings

Bake chicken and prepare ahead of time. This is great to do for a dinner the next day.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large, 11"x17" casserole pan. Drain the first 4 ingredients and then mix all together in a large mixing bowl. Then combine mushroom soup and mix again. And, last add the grated cheese, chicken pieces, salt and pepper to taste. Mix all together thoroughly. Put combined ingredients in the greased pan and bake for 30 minutes in your preheated oven.

(for quick, smaller portions you can do this step in the microwave too).

 

After 30 minutes, sprinkle the can of Fried Onion Rings over the surface of the casserole. Return to the oven to brown slightly-usually this is only 5 minutes or less-and watch carefully as they burn easily. I usually serve this over rice.

We do not breed often, but we do our best to breed top quality mastiffs
with excellent pedigrees to back them up. All breedings are carefully planned to produce
the very best mastiffs, sound in both body and mind, beautiful and strong,
representing the true mastiff standard.

We fully test our dogs. We believe that a person that "just wants a pet" has a right
to own a beautiful, well bred dog that is sound and healthy
every bit as much as someone wanting a "show dog".

What I'm Eating Right Now Recipe

Left over, two day old rice that I can't throw away (because I was raised to believe it was a sin? - or I'm that cheap - or that lazy) with peanut sauce

In a small sauce pan, lightly saute two cloves of garlic over medium heat (and/or ginger if you have some on hand)
Add one small can (5.6 fl oz) of coconut milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup of peanut butter* (I used creamy but crunchy might be fun)
1 table spoon of tamari (or soy sauce if you don't have tamari)

Stir constantly until nice and creamy
Pour over yucky, old, cold rice and salt to taste.
If you have some fresh coriander (cilantro) top if off with that.

* I use peanut butter that's just peanuts 100%, no salt or oil added etc...not sure about that other stuff
Warning: I didn't measure anything so I mostly made those parts up.
