Here is one of my favorites, Spaghetti Casserole. This recipe makes 2 pans, but you can freeze one for later.

1 package angel hair pasta
1 1/2 lbs hamburger
1 jar spaghetti sauce
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
1 can cream of mushroom soup (undiluted)
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Cook pasta according to pkg, and drain. Add sour cream and soup.

3. Cook hamburger and drain. Add spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce.

4. In (2) 8 or 9" square pans, layer:
Meat sauce, pasta, cheese then repeat.

5. Cover with foil, and bake 55 min. Remove foil and brown the top if you like.

Enjoy

Sounds good, I think I'm gonna give it a try!

BTW, we call that Baked Spaghetti where I come from. ;-)

Yep.
Only differnce I did let it rise only once for about 20 minutes and put the topping on without baking the dough first. Because I like it to be thin and cryspy.

That works too! I like my crust a little thicker and doughy. That's the best part about this recipe - it's so forgiving! Glad you enjoyed it!

There are very few stupid questions. Yours ain't one of them. Liquid Smoke is a flavoring that tastes like smoked....food.

Actually it's not flavouring. Its distilated real smoke. In the smallgood Industry we use for some products smokehouses that spray on liquide smoke instead of using conventional smoke. You wouldn't see or taste a difference:)

I got a question on this, too, so don't feel bad.

What's "BBQ spice"? I mean, is it a commercially-prepared product w/that name or just what? Common, or hard to find?

I made these earlier in the week to rave reviews, easy and really delicious:

Paula Deen's
Orange Brownies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
4 eggs
2 teaspoons pure orange extract
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 recipe Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, recipe follows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan.

Orange Brownies:
Stir together flour, granulated sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add butter, eggs, orange extract, and orange zest. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until light golden brown and set. Remove from oven, allow to cool and pierce entire cake with a fork. Spread the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting over completely cooled brownies. Cut into 20-24 squares.


Orange Cream Cheese Frosting:

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons orange zest
2 tablespoons orange juice

In a large mixing bowl, whip the butter and cream cheese together with a hand-held electric mixer. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar until it is all combined and smooth. Beat in the orange zest and juice. Spread over brownies.


ps We probably got around 12-16 from the pan but they are very rich.

pps Don't really understand what piercing the cake does. The frosting is too thick to soak in any. She has a version of this recipe with a powdered sugar drizzle and best guess is piercing was originally to allow that to soak in some.

Tonight I'm making my ever popular Crock Pot Country Style Pork Ribs. :eat:

I stole this recipie shamelessly off the interweb a while back. It's proven to be VERY popular.


Country style ribs (4 or however many needed)
1 clove garlic
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. water
3/4 c. catsup
1/3 c. lemon juice
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire
1 tbsp. mustard
2 tsp. salt
1/4 bottle (sm.) hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
1 c. chopped onion

Place ribs in crock pot. Mix all remaining ingredients in the blender. Pour over ribs. Cover crock pot and cook on 'low' 8-10 hours.


I don't use near that much tobasco and it also only takes about 4-5 hours to cook in our crock pot.
I usually serve it with green beans or asparagus and some mashed potatoes.

From an Idaho postcard, this is probably the richest potato soup you could make:

Idaho Baked Potato Soup

2/3 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
7 cups milk
4 large baking potatoes, baked peeled and cubed (about 4 cups)
4 green onions, sliced
12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (I like a lb of bacon)
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

In a large soup kettle, melt the butter and stir in flour heating and stirring until smooth. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thick. Add the potatoes and onions. Bring back to a boil while stirring constantly. Simmer for 10 minutes at reduced heat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until the cheese is melted. Serve with crackers. Great on a cold winters day.

There are already some drink recipes here so I thought I would post this. I've posted this before in GNG but never in a stickyed thread:

Classic Margaritas

3 parts tequila
2 parts Cointreau
1 part fresh lime juice


A simple recipe but the secret is in the details. You must use a top shelf tequila. I use Sauza Hornitos or Patron Reposado. Some will say you should use a white tequila but I prefer the reposado. At least make sure it's 100% agave. All orange liqueurs are not the same. The original margarita was made with Cointreau and it is still the best. Ideally you should use Mexican limes or Key limes. They have a slightly milder flavor than Persian limes. I don't hesitate to use the Persian limes if that's what's available fresh. The last ingredient is ice. If you have a filter on your icemaker or have really great tap water you can probably use that. If not use bagged ice for this.

For my shaker I fill it half full with ice and then add 6 oz tequila, 4 oz Cointreau, and 2 oz lime juice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Shaking for the full time gives you a very cold drink and melts some of the ice into the drink.

Rim your glasses with a cut wedge of lime and then dip in salt to coat. I use a coarse sea salt. Put a few ice cubes in each glass and then pour the just shaken margaritas in.

Serve with tortilla chips and one of the great sounding salsas in the thread.

I've never heard any complaints when I make this or give the recipe out...

Big Al's Tortilla Soup

Makes approx. 7 quarts

1 1/2 - 2 chopped medium onions
5 minced garlic cloves
4 tbsp vegetable oil
1 8oz. can green chiles
1 15oz. can italian-style stewed tomatoes
1 15oz. can mexican-style stewed tomatoes
2 tbsp tomatoe paste
10-12 cups chicken broth
2 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
3 tsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp hot sauce (Cholula, Tapatio)
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 bay leaves
8 corn tortillas

Optional Ingredients:

1-2 cups diced avocado
shredded cheddar cheese
2 lbs shredded chicken
sour cream
tortilla chips
canned corn


Makes 3.5 quarts

3/4 chopped medium onion
2 1/2 minced garlic cloves
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 4oz. can green chiles
1 15oz. can mexican/italian-style stewed tomatoes
1 tbsp tomatoe paste
5-6 cups chicken broth
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp hot sauce (Cholula, Tapatio)
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 bay leaf
4 corn tortillas

Optional Ingredients:

3/4 cup diced avocado
shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb shredded chicken
sour cream
tortilla chips
canned corn


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut tortillas into thin strips. Lay on a baking sheet and toast in the oven about 10-15 minutes. Keep 1 cup of the strips for garnish. Crush the rest of the tortillas in a bowl or food processor or blender. Or you can just put flour tortilla chips in until you've thickened the broth to your liking- I put in between 6 and 8.

Saute the onion, garlic, and vegetable oil over low heat for 5 minutes or until the onion has softened.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients and then simmer on low-medium heat.

Add any or all of the optional ingredients as you wish. Avoid putting in avocado if you plan to freeze the soup for later, it's better used as garnish not an ingredient.

Chicken and cheese:

Enough chicken for your family for a meal
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
1/2 cup sour cream
handful of shredded mozzerella cheese
little bit of onion and garlic, finely choped
some flour
pinch or two of dried parsley
salt
pepper
green tobasco

steamed rice

Make rice, set aside, keep warm.

Cut chicken into cubes. Mix flour, salt, pepper and parsley. Coat chicken.

Put chicken in pan with cooking agent (oil, butter, cooking spray), and cook.

While the dead bird is cooking, mix the sour cream, soups, tobasco, salt and pepper in a bowl. When the chicken is just about done, add the soup mixture and heat. Add the cheese and let it melt.

Serve the chicken mixture over rice with a side dish.

If you're watching calories or saturated fat intake, use the reduced or no fat soups, sour cream and cheese.

Easy salsa:

1 can whole peeled tomatoes, with juice
1/2 cup onion roughly chopped
1/4 cup cilantro
few slices of fresh jalapeno
a few garlic cloves smashed
juice from at least 1 lime
onion powder
salt
pepper

Put it all in a food processor and pulse to desired chuckyness. I prefer 7-8 slices of jalapeno, doesn't make it spicy at all, just a bit zippy.

While in Kali, Babysis made her own particular eggplant dish and MAN, it was great! I'll have to get her to type out her method/recipe when she gets a spare two minutes (or, perhaps she could delegate the task to one of her non-existent clones).

In any event, she slices it a certain way, soaks it in a salt brine for some period of time, does some certain seasonings, uses some certain sauce, and does some other magical stuff to and and voile la - the result is the ONLY eggplant dish I have ever wanted to eat AND enjoyed! In fact, deep in the dark of night I crept back into the kitchen and had seconds - and heretofore I HATED eggplant. Go figure.........

This is my first submission but it is full of artery clogging goodness. I made this a few days ago while the little one was napping. Not sure if it has been done before, but I just kinda went with what I had in the fridge and viola!

Sweet and Spicy Sausage

1 pkg of fresh hot sausage (I prefer local made, not store bought)
1lb of thick cut peppered bacon
Bottle of maple syrup (I prefer the natural kind, $$ but totally worth it)
A case of your favorite amber or dark lager beer.


Put the sausage in to a pot and bring to a low simmer for 10min. Drink a beer.
At the same time soak 3 toothpicks for each sausage in beer in a bowl.
Remove the sausage/beer from heat.
Pre heat grill to low heat. Drink a beer.
Carefully wrap 2 two full slices of bacon around each sausage, using the soaked tooth pics to hold the bacon in place.
Place the bacon wrapped sausage on the grill, on low low heat for 1hr, closed lid. Watch game, drink a beer.
Check to be sure the bacon isnt burning. (You might want to or need to put the sausages on the upper rack of grill to keep flare ups down.) Drink Beer.

After one hour, you have two options, both while enjoying a beer.

Option 1: Turn the grill as high as it will go, wait a few min and drizzle the sausage with the maple syrup. Close lid and allow it to caramelize. Add more for a bit more sweetness. Becareful not to burn or char the bacon while doing this part.

Option 2: While still on the grill, drizzle the sausage with the maple syrup. Using a propane torch (the kind used to do plumbing) to caramelize the syrup immediately. Again, add as much as you like, but be careful to not burn or scorch the bacon.

Remove from grill, remove toothpicks and enjoy. Can be served on a plate or on a bun, also go great with whats left of that case of beer.

The toothpick soaking is important as it keeps them from catching on fire and burning the bacon. Feel free to change or add to this and post up you results.

I'm a lazy single man, so my recipes usually don't go beyond "open package, eat contents". But here is a favorite I would like to share. It's an egg sandwich... well, of a sort.

Ingredients for 1 sandwich (I usually make 4):
- 1 medium egg
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 slice of swiss cheese
- thick horseradish sauce in a squeeze bottle (Publix brand works for me)

Cut a large rectangular hole in a slice of bread. Do what you want with the cut out piece, I usually just throw it away. Put the slice on a hot frying pan for a minute or two (until the bottom side gets slightly toasted).

Turn the bread slice over. Put some olive oil or a piece of butter inside the hole (if your frying pan is Teflon and you are trying to watch your weight, skip this part).

Crack an egg and gently slip it inside the hole in the bread slice. Put some horseradish sauce on the egg (I usually make a bead of sauce around the yolk). Cover the frying pan.

Catch the exact moment when the egg yolk is just starting to get hard. Take the sandwich off the frying pan and cover it with a slice of cheese. Let the cheese melt. Enjoy.

Hehe! I'm not sure they would survive a trip through the mail! I've heard of whole boxes of goodies "disappearing" and never seeing their destinations.

I think Mr. HE might be able to vouch for them, though. :supergrin:

Here's an easy recipe that I tried recently. I'm very picky about oatmeal, but this had really good flavor, wasn't runny and wasn't lumpy.

Slow Cooker "Whoa" Breakfast
(serves 4-6)

1 1/2 cups steel-cut or old-fashioned oats (I used steel-cut)
3 cups water
2 cups peeled and chopped apples
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all into a slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.

I like to add butter, honey and half and half to mine. Wish there was a way to add a little more protein to make it stick longer, but I'm not sure what I could add that would compliment the flavor.

I know for a fact that if you send them to DepChief, no one else will ever see them.




I will give this recipe a shot as I love steel-cut oats and all the other goodies in it..:supergrin:

I shouldn't be doing this while hungry.

Meat Loaf

2 pounds ground meat
2 cups fresh bread crumbs (about 4 slices of bread torn up)
cup milk
cup yellow onion, finely chopped
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons salt
teaspoon pepper

1) pre-heat oven to 350 F
2) combine all ingredients in a large bowl, stir until well mixed, and spoon into greased baking dish
3) bake 50-60 minutes, or until the pink is gone and juices run clear
4) let sit 5 minutes, drain off any juices, then transfer to a serving dish

I usually offer it with ketchup or BBQ sauce, but several people have told me it doesn't need any of that.

Mashed potatoes and roasted carrots are the most popular side dishes to go with it.
