This was pretty good. Not too many ingredients, didn't take long to prepare and wasn't hard to make. I think the next time I make it I won't put quite as many noodles in it so there is a bit more sauce. There was a ton of food in this meal. I decided to make it because I had an extra loaf of bread for Gooey Garlic Mozzarella bread. Adam and Chuck both liked it. I haven't made something new in a while, so I was glad to make something new. Let me know if you are interested in the recipe.
We were at Chuck and Jean's new house for dinner a few weeks ago and Jean had made some Key Lime Pie. It was so good. I got the recipe from her and made it last night to bring to my cousin. It was so easy to make (only a few ingredients) and it tasted SO limey! (I had to have a little spoonful!) Now that I know how simple it is to make and how good it is, I will have to make it more often to bring to people or to events. If you like Key Lime Pie, you will LOVE this one. Let me know if you want the recipe.
I made a macaroni casserole last weekend. It was pretty good. I think the next time I make it I will add a bit more pasta. It was very cheesy. It did take a while to make because you had to make a roux. It was good, though. It had a good flavor to it. Different than any other mac & cheese I have had. Adam and Chuck liked it, but agreed that it was a little thick with all the sauce. Let me know if you are interested in the recipe.
This was a really yummy recipe and very simple to make. There are only 5 ingredients. It didn't take long to cook at all. It reminded me of a chicken parmesan I have made but with the chicken cut up and different noodles. It was a hit with Chuck and my brother. Let me know if you want the recipe to try. 🙂
A while ago I created a recipe database to add recipes to. I am part of a couple email recipe exchanges and I have been adding recipes that I receive from them as well as ones I have from family or other places. It's been a while since I have put new recipes on there and I have been starting to update it again. I have a few people that have access into it (you need a username and a password), but I am willing to give access to others if they are interested. (Email me and I can tell you what to do to get access.)
I have made a section on the recipes when they are added for comments. I am hoping people will try some of them and let me know what they think so I can add comments for others to read about them. I think anything would be helpful…recipe was hard, recipe was easy, too many steps, tasted terrible, tasted great, etc.
So let me know if you are interested in helping me better my recipe database. The worst that happens is you get some new ideas for meals and try something new. 🙂
This was a recipe I found in Rachael Ray's magazine. It looked really good in the picture. I wish I could have made it look as pretty in person as it looked in the picture. I followed the directions, (so I thought) but things didn't turn out as I had hoped. It said to mix the egg mixture until it was thick. When I looked it my mixer it looked thick, but apparently, it was too fluffy. I tried to put it in the pan and it would have overflowed if I put it all in there. I ended up only putting in about half of the egg mixture. I continued to make it and I was even asked to put it out. The ladies said they liked it. I haven't made many desserts and that might have been part of the problem. I will have to work on my dessert making. It was a good time making something new, but I will need a little more practice at this one. 🙂
I made this dish today for the Brunch I had at our house. It was really easy to make. I was pleased with the way it turned out. I got this from my aunt Patty. Everyone at the Brunch said it was really good. I changed the recipe slightly and added both ham and sausage to the dish. Let me know if you are interested in getting this recipe and I can get it to you.
I also don't have a name for it other than Egg Dish. If anyone has a good name for it, let me know. I'll rename it to something better when I think of one if I don't get naming help from anyone. 🙂
In the last entry I wrote about meatloaf. With the new kitchen color, I have started to try making one new meal a week. So this is a place for me to let you know about them. Email me if you want any of the recipes to the meals I write about in here.
This was ok, but kind of dry. There wasn't a lot of sauce in it, for a casserole. I also, put in more pasta than the recipe called for….because I like pasta. That could have been part of the reason it was a little dry. If I hadn't added more pasta to the casserole, I think it would have been too meaty. My brother loved it, but he LOVES pizza. 🙂
With the casserole I made 'Gooey Garlic Mozzarella Bread.' It was pretty good. I end up picking out some of the cheese because I don't like to eat that much cheese in one bite, but Chuck and my brother liked it. You must have to be a cheese lover for this one. But I would make it again.
This was actually pretty good. It tasted like most other meatloaves I have had. The difference in this was the sauce (bbq-like) that you put on the top. I liked being able to put it in the slow cooker. It cooked for about 5 hours. It was pretty good, though. Might make it again sometime. If you are going to cook meatloaf for an hour already, you may as well stick it in the crock-pot for the afternoon.
