RECIPE: Jacked Up Potatoes

RECIPE: Jacked Up Potatoes

I remember growing up my aunt frequently made some hash brown and cheese something that was called Party Potatoes.  I frequently made my own version thereof with shredded potatoes instead of frozen hash browns and just did my own thing with it.  It morphed a few times over the years but really settled when I made a mistake at the store one day.  Teach me not to pay attention when grabbing sour cream from the dairy case.  I got home with sour cream and chive dip.  The rest is history.  It has replaced sour cream in all the savory dishes and replaced French Onion dip for most chip dipping as well.  It’s fresh and light with flavor.  Who needs the other?  but I got sidetracked.  The reason I was buying sour cream to begin with is to make my potatoes.  I wasn’t going back to the store, one trip was […]

RECIPE: Lasagna Roll-Ups

RECIPE: Lasagna Roll-Ups

In honor of Minion’s Week here on the blog, and that fact that Mother’s Day is Sunday I got with MooMoo and she made one of her Mom’s favorite dinners, Lasagna Roll ups Meme Style.  It’s not a difficult recipe at all but a bit time consuming.  They disappear so fast though that it’s completely worth it. What can I say about my MooMoo?  She’s my first girl child, who as a baby would only sleep laying right on top of me (not necessarily a good thing!). She had a heart monitor when she came home and our beats would sync causing the machine to make a horrid noise.  She’s been making noise ever since but she has my heart wrapped around her little finger.  She loves to cook with Meme and has been planning this cooking day for as long as she’s known it’s a thing.  Moo is this […]

RECIPE: Chicken Bundles

RECIPE: Chicken Bundles

Back to Pinterest for more interesting food ideas for this week.  I wanted something quick, easy and light (since my amazing neighbors filled me up with ribs and all the fixins’ at lunch).  I’ve actually made these amazing bundles a few times before and like many of the commenters on the original blog post for the recipe (which you can find here at Quick and Easy Dinner ) I have found that I like to switch it up a bit and add different flavors.  It’s a great recipe for a quick, light meal and of course for leftover lunches through the week. Forget the shadows, they are amazing! Ingredients:4 oz. cream cheese, softened1-13 oz. can chicken (or equivalent cooked chicken, rotisserie chicken, etc – I just cooked some chicken breast in a bit of chicken broth because well, flavor)1/2 Tbs. sesame seeds2 cans crescent rolls – leave in fridge until […]

RECIPE: Apple Cream Pie

RECIPE: Apple Cream Pie

So, yesterday, if you were paying attention, my review of ‘The Seekers’ by Wanda E. Brunstetter went live.  All the recipes in the book were included for the reader.  Off all the recipes this was the only one I would and/or could eat.  So of course I had to make it.  Since I have amazing neighbors I took some for myself and sent the rest next door.  I mean seriously, I don’t need a whole pie to myself.  Want?  Of course!  Need.  No way! Ingredients:3 cups apples, finely chopped (I used Granny Smith because well, Granny Smith!)1 cup brown sugar1/4 teaspoon salt1 rounded Tablespoon flour1 cup cream1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell Directions:Preheat over to 450 degrees.  Mix apples, brown sugar, salt, flour, and cream. Put in unbaked pastry shell.  Bake 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 325 degrees for an additional 30 to 40 minutes.  When pie is about halfway […]
