"People have a tendency to think that if you are from the country that you're a little less intelligent than the average person and that is just not true."
Same way some people think Southerners are less intelligent because some of us t-a-l-k---a---l-i-t-t-l-e---s-l-o-w. That's when I roll my...
You just keep on using what you're using 'cause we can see the results here and you know whether or not your family and guests eat it all up! LOL!
BettyR, you turn out some beautiful breads, cakes, etc. and it sounds as if you are a somewhat frugal baker/cook also, which is great! When I...
Here is the meatball recipe that I use; I make them small because that's how I like them:
Freezer Stash Meatballs
Makes 48 meatballs; 8 servings
3 pounds lean ground beef
1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
6 tablespoons minced onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
I'd feel rich eating that "poor man's Beef Wellington!"
Today I've got a recipe of Portuguese Sweet Bread rising in the oven - flavored with some grated orange peel - that I'm going to make into breakfast rolls. I need to take something over to welcome my new neighbors and these sounded good...
Until you find that bamboo steamer, just line your metal steamer basket with either lettuce leaves or cabbage leaves. Keeps the dumplings from sticking to the metal and also makes cleaning the steamer basket easier.
Your tutorial is just great! Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. I make pot stickers often, but have not made them with my own dough yet.....just not enough free time to do it yet. I got my press when I visited an Asian cooking store in Philadelphia last year....only cost $1.00!
Tonight I was trying a new sourdough bread recipe. Went in to check near the end of the baking time and.....hmmmmm.......is that odd smell the bread??? Noooooo......it was the smell of a smoldering pot holder. I had left it on the rack when I preheated the oven just a minute then set the bowl of...
I pressure cook my own beans because I prefer the small red beans instead of red kidney beans. It's harder to find canned small red beans on the grocery store shelves here. I cook a whole bag of dried beans in the pressure cooker after boiling them one minute, letting them soak, then I pour off...
Scotch Eggs are tasty and different!
Egg In The Hole (1 serving)
2 slices of bread
1 teaspoon butter
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Tear a 1 and 1/2-inch hole out of the center of each piece of bread. Tilt the skillet so the...
This tasty casserole freezes well:
Chicken Tetrazini is another favorite that is easy to make and freeze:
Today I made Lemon Pecan Bread with the friendship starter - turned out good! Also made an enchilada casserole (see the crock pot thread) and mixed up the cinnamon babka dough. It is chilling in the fridge, so it will be easier to handle tomorrow.....yeah.....that's it.....I won't deal with it...
Your enchilada casserole is very good! Just took it out of the oven and served up some for my lunch. I baked this in a glass oblong casserole dish, at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes, so I could cut portions to fit freezer containers. My sons are getting "mom's meals" as part of their...
Yesterday made the banana bread and a batch of Snickerdoodle cookies. Today is lemon bread and hopefully, cinnamon babka. I've got about 7 people at work to take gifts to and I want to get them all done this week. Some will receive two mini loaves, other will receive one mini loaf and a bag of...

Next time, try cooking it low and slow in the oven - about 300 for about 2 hours, then add the vegetables and cook another hour or 1 1/2 hours. You can cover the pot for most of the cooking time, then remove it for the last half hour/45 min. of the time to reduce some of the liquid.
