    Another Pantry Challenge recipe - I was craving pasties, but also had leftover commercially prepared pie crusts from the holidays to use up. So I figured out what else I had in my pantry and freezer, and here's what I came up with! They were very tasty, if I say so, myself. :) If you use curry powder, they're like samosas... without, they're like pasties. Both ways are delicious!

    Recipe #111943

    I wanted to make a different sort of meatloaf for dinner last night, and this is what I came up with. This meatloaf is moist and cheesy and oh-so-delicious! Tastes pretty darn good cold, too. :) I often make a double batch and freeze one in a disposable meatloaf pan to give to bachelor friends.

    Recipe #103644

    Nothing fancy here - just good, old fashioned and delicious scalloped potatoes.

    Recipe #80989

    Once upon a time, my husband told me that he didn't like cooked cabbage. "Ah ha," I thought, "a challenge!" So I made a dish based on my "Simmered Leeks" recipe that works so well, and -- let's just put it this way: he changed his mind. He loves it when I make simmered cabbage! A very simple and tasty way to use this much-maligned veggie.

    Recipe #100417

    My vegetarian friend Matthew and I get together to cook now and then (he being a newbie chef), and this was the first dish we made as his introduction to veggie cooking. Very tasty! Based on a recipe from Curtis Aikens.

    Recipe #102473

    The combination of barbecue and sauerkraut might sound strange, but it's very tasty! We love the combination. :)

    Recipe #107862

    My friend Cara shared this family recipe with me - it's been a favorite on their table for years, and often requested. :) Prep time includes chilling.

    Recipe #109750

    One of my favorite restaurants in Seattle was Kaleenka's on First Avenue. I loved their borshch and piroshky, and I always felt warm and comfortable in the restaurant. Kaleenka's has unfortunately closed, but I did find their recipe for borshch in "Dining Ethnic Around Puget Sound" which was published in 1993. This is an excellent borshch, well worth making! Kaleenka featured good Russian hearty fare, traditional cooking from the Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and Georgia. The name "Kaleenka" was derived from a ubiquitous shrub that grows all across Russia, which is revered since ancient times as a symbol of the land and culture. According to Kaleenka's... there are many variations of the soup called "borshch," and this one is a vegetarian recipe. What's the secret of a good borshch? Brown the vegetables separately. How do you pronounce "borshch?" Like the "sh ch" in "fresh cheese." In Russian it is indicated by a single letter.

    Recipe #110365

    The combination of frozen meatballs and chile verde sauce was a very happy discovery... the results are absolutely delicious! (And they're almost ridiculously easy to prepare, too.) I plan on making these in the future for potlucks and as appetizers. This is another Pantry Challenge recipe, where I use items I already have at home to make meals.

    Recipe #110680

    A rich, hearty meal! Serve with a oil & vinegar dressed salad to offset the richness.

    Recipe #52954

    This afternoon I was trying to decide what to make for dinner, and suddenly I found myself craving good old porcupine meatballs. But I couldn't make plain meatballs, no sir! Here's the recipe I made up, and it came out wonderfully well. An adult update of one of our childhood favorites. Very tasty!

    Recipe #49139

    Mom's recipe is different from most of them I've seen out there, and it's pretty darn good. :)

    Recipe #43271

    My mom has been using this recipe since she was married in the 50's and it's as good now as then. She still makes it for me when I visit. :) It's wonderful when first served, but is even better chilled... cold meatloaf sandwiches, mmm! A versatile recipe, you can easily alter it to your own tastes. Experiment and enjoy! :)

    Recipe #43262

    I love meatloaf, and tend to make large ones to ensure that there will be leftovers (nothing is better the next day than a cold meatloaf sandwich!). But sometimes I end up with half of a 3-pound meatloaf and nobody wants sandwiches, so here's what I make to use it in a tasty, fast, and easy way... Note: there is no salt added to the recipe because the salt that's contained in the tortilla chips and meatloaf, but you'll need to judge that for yourself; this one can easily get too salty if you're not careful. :)

    Recipe #38892

    I loved it when Mom used to make this for us! I have no idea if she originally made it for Dad, who had been in the army, or if she just liked it because it tasted good and was a budget stretcher. A traditional favorite, good ol' SOS. Note: the title of this recipe specifies that it is made ground beef, rather than chipped beef; "authentic" SOS is generally made with chipped beef, however many folks also refer to the ground beef version by the same name.

    Recipe #28667

    Simple and easy, this dish is nonetheless a hit on the table!

    Recipe #27006

    This is a great recipe, easy to make, and popular with kids! I recommend the Pillsbury Grands sized ones as easiest to use to make these tasty breakfast, lunch, or dinner treats.

    Recipe #30995

    This is a great recipe, easy to make, and popular with kids! You can use different flavors of barbecue sauce and different kinds of refrigerator biscuits as well (although I recommend the Pillsbury Grands sized ones as easiest to use).

    Recipe #28689

    Easy and tasty, this is a nice change of pace for a weekend lunch or supper. Yum!

    Recipe #30820

    One Saturday afternoon I really wanted pea soup, but didn't have any in the cupboard and I didn't want to go to the store. So instead, I made my own. Oh-so-easy, this soup is yummy!
