This is my recipe for basic stuffed pork chops dressed up with a mushroom-wine sauce. (NOT using cream of 'shroom soup!) You can either use thick chops for stuffing, or my way, using basic chops just placed on top of the stuffing. Delicious and easy! (See additional notes at the bottom of the recipe)
This is the simplest meatloaf recipe that made me a meatloaf lover! There is nothing fancy in the mix, but the flavor is wonderful. The mix will seem so wet that you will think you will not be able to form it, but you will. It also makes good meatballs, just add a little oregano and garlic and bake them at 350°F for about 15 minutes. Hope you like it as much as I do! We call it Aunt Millie's but Aunt Honey swears it's hers (so we give them both credit)!
This is the beefed up version of my Mushroom Barley Soup recipe. Like that recipe, this makes a semi hearty soup-not too brothy but not too thick. I like mine super hearty, so I increase the barley to 1/2 cup.
Easy and very tasty with a wonderful stuffing. Sprinkle the tops with breadcrumbs if you like, or just drizzle some butter and bake. Easily doubles or reduces. This recipe was created for the Ready, Set, Cook! contest.
SPICY! If you love spicy shrimp dishes, this one is for you. I serve it over rice, but you could have it any way you like. For those who don't like it really spicy, reduce the amount of chipotles. Would be great barbequed and basted with the sauce. Adapted from a magazine clipping. Easily cuts in half for smaller servings.
This is an easy, delicious bar dessert using prepared cookie dough. Always a huge hit at picnics and for a sweet snack at home. Once you take a bite, you won't be able to stop eating it! Try using different varieties of cookie dough like chocolate chunk or chocolate chips with walnuts.
This is one of my entries for the Ready, Set, Cook! contest. Pancakes for dessert! Chocolate pancakes made with buttermilk and buckwheat flour. Not too sweet, and can be garnished with more than just powdered sugar, such as ice cream or fresh whipped cream. Serving size depends on the size of your pancakes. I like to make them about 4 inches.
This is my perfect basic recipe for twice baked potatoes. These potatoes are great to make ahead of time. Just refrigerate or freeze until you need them, and reheat in the oven. I prefer sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use whatever you like, but it will change the taste of the recipe. Cook time includes baking the potatoes. Bake a few extra potatoes for extra filling if you like.
Easy, fast, creamy cheese tortellini! With butter and creme fraiche, it's gotta be good! Throw in some fresh herbs and garlic and it's done. Serve this as a side dish to any meat entree, or if you don't want to share, make it your meal and eat it all yourself! You can use frozen tortellini, but the fresh pasta is so good
Note: The ingredients have been corrected to reflect many of the reviewers comments that pecans were listed in the ingredients but pine nuts were mentioned in the instructions..either works great. A creamy cheesy risotto. The nuts add a nice crunch. It's easy to make, and pairs well with an oven baked dish, as it does need some attention while cooking. Contrary to what some say, risotto does not need CONSTANT stirring, but it does need stirred frequently. You don't want to let it go for more than a minute or so without a stir. Using low sodium chicken broth is important, as the cheese can be salty. This was a contest entry for RSC #11.
This risotto cooks up rich and creamy, nicely spiced, makes for a great side dish. Takes some time and lots of attention, but is worth the wait! This recipe was created for the Ready, Set, Cook! contest.
