  1. Is it 3 cups of cooked elbows, or 3 cups uncooked elbows...cooked?


  1. I used my leftover Easter ham to make this yummy and creamy casserole. I was so please with the taste, and especially when both my son and husband said, boy,that was good! Another great recipe from Mizz Nezz.
  2. Really good! Really easy. Loved the chips on the top! Will make again.
  3. My family LOVED this meal! I was working late and when I came down to the kitchen half the pan was already gone! Worked well for leftovers, also!
  4. What a great find! I used bowtie pasta, which made it pretty and yummy. And as others suggested, I doubled the mustard and added 1/4 tsp. cayenne. Finally, I used smoked paprika which complimented the ham. Oh, and 1 1/4 cups of peas. Definitely add the green veggie to make it a meal experience.
  5. My family really enjoyed enjoyed this recipe. Although, the next time I’ll usesharp cheddar cheese.


  1. Baked it longer to get it really crunchy on top. YUM!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
