I was having company for dinner one bitterly cold day (-40 something with the windchill). I wanted a warming soup to start our meal and this is what I came up with. I used the slowcooker, but you could easily do it in a pot on the stove. I had cooked up a package of small white beans, so had homemade beans to use in the soup. Canned ones would work just as well. The vegetable amounts do not have to be exact. Add other veg as desired, some sliced baby zuchinni added near the end would be good. If you use rice or barley instead of pasta add at the last 45 minutes of cooking time. This is nice served with my Best Ever Focaccia, Recipe #446668. Garnish the soup with a ltitle chopped flat leaf Italian parsley if you have some on hand. This makes enough for 4 people as a main course, or about 8 as a starter.
Easter eggs can be use as Deviled Eggs or Potato Salad as will into a Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
I mean, didn't everyone's mom make egg salad just like this? This classic egg salad is perfect for sandwiches or on a cracker. The secret to great egg salad is to mix the cold mayo with the still hot yolks. This makes a much creamier base to add the rest of the ingredients to.
I got this recipe from aunt in 1959. She says that the rolls freeze wonderfully and can be reheated in the microwave. Her other hint is that she also uses the dough as a refrigerator dough and bakes the rolls the next day.
Banana Split Truffles are banana-flavored white chocolate truffles decorated to look like a tiny scoop of ice cream! These truffles are as tasty as they are adorable. I think these are the perfect treat for birthdays, ice cream socials, and summer parties.
Everyone who ate these wanted the recipe and loved them. I will definitely make them again.
This is how my Granny made sweet tea and it is some kind of sweet. Know that and beware. Pa-Paw used to down 2-3 glasses after working in the garden all day. Back off the sugar if you can't handle it. This one is for true southerners only ;)
My kids, and the neighbourhood kids, are always asking for me to make these...little do they know it is so easy! I put it together in the morning, or even the night before, and the crockpot does the rest. I have made bigger and smaller batches...just adjust ingredients accordingly:) Awesome over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
I first learned to like this soup at a Chinese restaurant called Nong Chin's in Marion Illinois. I had to try my hand at copying it, as I love it--this is the result. AND these people DO NOT give out their recipes.
These little tasty treats are always a hit. They taste just like an apple pie, except they are mini sized and easy to eat. They are great to take to a party because there is not cutting and serving needed. People always rave about these. I think their pretty tasty too! My hubby loves to eat them warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Maybe a little caramel sauce drizzled over top! Mmmmm...
After eating the "World's Best" Fried Oysters at The Old Post Office Restaurant at Edisto, SC, I wanted to duplicate them. This comes mighty close! I believe the double breading and Panko bread crumbs are the secret to these light and crispy oysters. If served as appetizers, they will disappear faster than free money so double or triple the recipe! The Hot Sauce is a modified version of Secret's Recipe #50051 and the perfect complement to these Oysters.
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.
