This soup has been a staple in our home for so many years I can't name the magazine I clipped it from! A great way to have homemade soup with less than an hour of time and use the left over ham. The original recipe calls for basil, but I found omitting it was more kid-friendly. I do add italian seasoning when the spirit moves. Round out the meal with crispy bread and a green salad and you have Olive Garden beat!
A great addition to a roasted meat dinner! It goes well with chicken, beef, pork or turkey. I often use frozen hashbrowns that have been thawed to cut down on prep time AND you can make it the night before and bake for an additional 10 minutes! (cover and refrigerate overnight)
My nephew proclaims this the "King" of breads! I make this for him and my dinner guests often. It's easy and fairly fool-proof with a bread machine. A great accompaniment to soup and salad! The cook time does not include the bread machine time.
At less than 150 calories, this dessert will steal the show! Although perfect for hot weather, I often make this as a finale to a heavy meal in the winter months. When fresh mangoes aren't available, I use the jar variety found in the produce section with equal success. This is a winner with my "low-cal, low-fat, low-sugar" friends! Cook time is really freeze time.
My brother is a deep-sea fisherman, whenever he gets the chance and brings home hundreds of pounds of Tuna! This is our absolute favorite way to fix this delicacy! I make the sauce way ahead of fishing season and store in the freezer. Even the kids give it two thumbs up! A fancy way to entertain guests and make it seem like you slaved all day. Give thanks to Beulah's in Port Aransas, Texas for this winner!
