Adapted from Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, this is easy with yummy results. Put it on in the morning and come home to a soothing, comforting dinner. Crackers or bread and a salad finish off this meal.
Please your guests with a special treat they won't be expecting. The directions seem a bit long but this is actually quite easy to make. You saute onions and Steak Umm, prepare eggs, toast bagels and assemble sandwiches. (Recipe courtesy of http://fooddownunder.com)
Tip for oatmeal: make it in the crock pot overnight! It comes out very creamy from the slow cooking, and I love being able to get up and have that hot steamy bowl right away without having to do anything at all. You do have to clean up the crock pot, but you can make a large quantity and refrigerate the leftovers to be heated in the microwave for the next several days. I use two cups of oatmeal at a time, which is enough for four breakfasts (for me, anyway; probably more for people who don't have huge bowls like I do).
This stuff is out of this world! I love the combination of oats, brown sugar, and yummy peaches. Of course it HAS to be topped with vanilla ice cream. I have used fresh and canned peaches, both tasting great. But, if possible, fresh peaches are the best. I usually double the recipe to make a 9x13 pan size. I have gotten so many compliments on this easy dessert. By the way, it is really rich :)
This was another one of our favorites in the 70's Very inexpensive and very easy to make. Just recently found this recipe hand-written by my Mom, and the warm feelings flood back to me, because this was a true favorite in our house. Little did I know that she was on such a tight budget, yet made things like this that we all loved!! NOTE: The meat that was used in this recipe always varied, according to whatever we had available at the time.
This is my sister's favorite dish that my mom makes. It's a wonderful mexican-inspired casserole of layers of corn tortillas, cheese, and a creamy chicken, black bean, and green chili mixture. A great use for leftover chicken.*Edited per reviewers suggestions that it was too runny. Should set up fine now. Saucy but not runny.*
This is my first recipe - please be kind! My kids love it and when I take it to a BBQ everyone wants the recipe. It is a variation on one I found in epicurious a while ago. It is very easy and very yummy!!
This dish is one of my husband's favorites and mine as well when I'm not worrying about carbs! I can't remember where I got this one - I think off the back of a box some time ago, but I ended up slightly altering it to turn up the heat a bit. With the tabasco to taste, you can make it a little spicy or a lot! It also reheats well.
This is always a hit if I have dinner guests who like shrimp. It's simple, but with a wonderful taste -- another great recipe from Canadian Living. I typically serve it with fresh bread, small steaks, salad, and I'll do roast potatoes if I have a guest who I know doesn't like seafood. Note: if you don't have the steaks, expect this to only serve 4; it's that good.
