What could I do with sausages for a ladies night tonight? I have A LOT in my freezer (kielbasa, polish type). It's a little spicy and may not be for everyone's taste. I was thinking of cutting them into bite size pieces and then putting that sweet sauce over them - the one used for meatballs (ketchup/chili sauce w jam/cranberry sauce). I know some are not fond of that sauce...so what else can I do with it???

Do you think...
1. That bite sized sausage is ok for a ladies night?
2. That hot sausage would be good with the sweet sauce?

3. Should I just make something else.

Oh...I'm going to be gone a lot of today and don't have the time to make something that will take time...I need something I can throw together easily and only and hour or two before the get together.

I am getting a little tired of having chips, mash or boiled potatoes with our evening meal. So, I was wondering if anyone has a healthy recipe for potato cakes? Or if you have any inspiration to offer in the potato department I would really appreciate it, as I can't face another plate of chips Mad

As mentioned in Homemaking, here's the recipe from the Ben and Jerry's recipe book, made safe from salmonella:

French Vanilla Ice Cream

2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Whisk eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in 1 cup of the cream and the milk and whisk to blend. Heat the mixture in a microwave to 165 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir often. [For my microwave, I do 2 minutes on high, stir, 2 more minutes on high, stir and check temp, 1 min on high, stir and check temp, and if it's not at 165 yet go 30 seconds at a time until at 165]. When the temperature is 165, the eggs have been made safe. Add the second cup of cream and the vanilla. Refrigerate until cold, then process in your ice cream maker.

For Heath Bar Crunch: You need 4 regular size Heath bars. Cut them into pieces (you should have 1 cup) and freeze them in a covered container. Add them after the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done.

For Coffee: Add an extra 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 T freeze dried coffee when you add the last cup of cream after heating.

Those are the flavors we make. I'll experiment with chocolate one of these days--the recipe book has a couple versions. The vanilla is so good that we've been making mostly that. Enjoy!

I just had to share this recipe my family tried for the first time tonight. Now, dd, age 9, wasn't crazy over it because she has veggie-phobia Very Happy , but dh and I thought it was yum-o! It is also meatless.

Monterey Spaghetti Casserole

1 egg, beaten
1 c. sour cream
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 t. garlic powder
2 c. grated Monterey Jack cheese
4 oz. spaghetti, cooked in unsalted water and drained
10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2.8 oz. can French fried onions, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine the egg, sour cream, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Stir in the Monterey jack cheese, hot spaghetti, spinach and half the onions. Pour into an 8 inch square baking dish. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Top with the remaining onions and bake uncovered for 5 minutes. Serves 4-6

I served this with foccacia bread (made with Pillsbury pizza crust) and we are having chocolate pumpkin muffins for dessert.

I remember Kate and Michele QOC discussing pecan pies without corn syrup. I'm a Cajun girl who thought that sounded like a good idea.

Someone brought a amaretto pound cake to our Thanksgiving gathering. It was from a place called the Bread Basket. It was wonderful. I looked on line for a recipe. It calls for 1/2 cup of Amaretto. Can I use some kind of flavoring instead? What kind? Rum? When you replace alcohol with imitiation flavoring does it affect the consistency of the recipe. I would think it wouldn't be as moist.

French Bread

1 Tbsp. dry yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water

1 1/2 tsp. salt

3 Tbsp. oil

4 cups flour (more or less)


Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup water - add remaining 1 cup water

Stir in salt, oil, and 1 cup flour

Continue adding flour until ball pulls away from bowl (I use skinnierdough hook on kitchen aid for this part. There is still a bit of stickiness at the very bottom of the bowl.)

By hand, knead more flour in until dough is slightly past sticky stage and is smooth and soft

Place in greased bowl, grease top, cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes

(I just spray the bowl without washing it out, and then I spray the top of the dough)

Punch down, let rise another 30 minutes

Roll out into a 15x10" oblong

Roll up tightly and pinch edges and ends to seal

Place on a greased cookie sheet (I use a jelly roll pan)

With fingertips, brush top with water

Slash top at an angle about 4 times

Cover with a sprayed piece of saran wrap, let rise 1 hour

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes

Note: I often use this recipe to make two long, skinnier loaves

RE: Cranberry Banana Bread [message #484981] Fri, 12 December 2008 17:51
Anonymous for now

I know, you ladies never "see" me in here. Laughing

I printed a zucchini bread recipe from the net and used it to make banana cranberry bread.


3 cups flour (all purpose is what I used)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder (I used two today, can't see any difference)
1 teaspoon cinnamon


3 eggs beaten
1 cup oil (I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 -3/4 cup applesauce)
mashed bananas (only had two)
1/2 can cranberry sauce
1-2 cups sugar (use best judgement, if using sweetened applesauce need less, recipe called for 2 1/4 cups!!! which is way too much, I used 1 1/2)
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used two)

1 cup nuts (I used pecans)
1 cup dried cranberries

Sift dry ingredients together (who does that anymore? I used a wisk). Mix wet ingred. in seperate bowl (including the sugar). Mix wet and dry together, add in nuts and dried cranberries. Bake in two greased loaf pans at 325 degrees for 40-60 minutes.

DD said it was "really good". I just ate two pieces myself. The zucchini bread calls for shredded zucchini - one cup (but I put two) and I used walnuts. Oh and I used red and green sprinkles for the top and they looked really festive.

I posted a "how to" on my blog about how to make cookies out of Snicker's mini candy bars. They are really good and super easy. I got it from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine 2 or 3 years ago.

Anyone have a recipe for old-fashion Potato Candy?

I make it every year for my fil, but I just do what an elderly lady told me to do, and I've never actually seen a real recipe to know if it can be made differently.

I have tried the ketchup recipes in the Ball canning book, but didn't like them nearly as well as this recipe I got from my grandmother. She got it out of a newspaper in 1905 or 1915, and it's a great favorite with my family. It works great with Roma tomatoes.

7 quarts tomato pulp
6 peppers (I puree them)
6 tablespoons salt
1 large clove garlic (I use granulated garlic)
4 small onions (pureed)
1 teaspoon celery seed

Simmer the above ingredients until somewhat thickened. Then add the following ingredients, and cook for at least 15 minutes more, stirring frequently to keep the tapioca and cinnamon candies from sticking.

3 tablespoons tapioca (I use about a cup--I like thicker ketchup)
6 whole cloves (I use about a teaspoon of ground cloves)
4 cups sugar
1 package cinnamon imperials (red hot candies)
2 cups vinegar

Remove spices, onions, peppers, and garlic cloves before pouring into jars. (I don't have to do this, since I don't use whole spices or vegetables.) Seal and process for 15 minutes in a boiling water canner.

I don't process mine at all--I just pour it into the jars while it's bubbling hot, and put the lids on immediately. I've never had a jar of it spoil, even when kept for over a year.

The tapioca does tend to make the ketchup look a little lumpy, but whenever I open a jar to use, I just put it in the blender for a minute, and it looks just like store-bought ketchup.

I hope someone else will enjoy this as much as we do!

This is THE best cocoa I have EVER had!!!!

Mayan Hot Cocoa:
4 cups milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teasp. flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teasp. nutmeg
3 whole cloves, crushed (can just add powder if that's all you've got.)
1/4 to 1/2 teasp. chli powder, depending on taste (more IS better!)
1 cinnamon stick, broken up
2 teasp. powdered sugar
1 & 1/2 teasp. vanilla

whip cream and cinnamon-sugar to garnish


1.) Sift the cocoa & flour.

2.) Measure out 4 cups of milk. Pour about 1/4 cup into a bowl and put the rest in a sauce pan on the stove. Mix the cocoa/flour mixture into the 1/4 cup milk until it becomes a paste. Make sure to get all the clumps out.

3.) Add the remaining spices (sugar, nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, and cinnamon) to the cocoa/flour mixture.

4.) Heat the rest of the 4 cups of milk in a saucepan over medium.

5.) Add the cocoa/flour/spices mix to the hot milk. Stir constantly to keep it from burning.

6.) Continue to stir until it's the desired thickness. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get it "just right."

7.) Strain the cocoa through a sieve to remove the cloves and cinnamon pieces. Of course, if you used ground cloves and cinnamon, there's no need. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and stir.

8.) Pour yourself a cup full of this liquid gold! Add whip cream and cinnamon-sugar if you like. Don't get upset if you get addicted to this--- it is THAT good!!

Found this online today:


2 cups coarsely grated zuc- chini, unpeeled (about 1 medium)
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 onion, finely chopped (we grated it also)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
1 egg, beaten

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl (we grated the zucchini and onion into a colander so some of the liquid could drain out). The texture can be adjusted -- if it's too dry, add another egg; if too wet, add more bread crumbs (we had to add a couple of tablespoons).

Heat some oil in a skillet. Form mixture into patties and fry over medium heat until golden brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Makes 4 big or 6 medium cakes.

Small bag of broccoli florets cooked, chop it up.

I made this today and my KIDS even like it! Laughing That is saying a lot! It is soooo good!

2 cups dried black beans
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped (or 3 teasp. minced garlic)
1-2 large red peppers, chopped
1 cup chopped cilantro (I use more)
4 cups cooked rice
2 tsp. oil
Lime juice to garnish

After picking through beans, place in stock pot and cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil, boil hard for 2 minutes, then cover, turn off heat, and let sit for 1 hour.

Drain beans then return to pot with 8 1/2 cups water. Add the garlic, half the red pepper, and 1/4 cup cilantro. Bring to a boil, then cover partially and adjust heat to simmer. Gently cook for 1 1/2 hours. Then stir in 2 teasp. salt and cook another 15 minutes. Drain back into collander.

Put oil in pot and set over med-high heat. When oil is hot, add remaining red pepper and stir fry until pepper is the tenderness you like. (About 4 minutes for me.) Add remaining cilantro, stir for a minute, then add beans. Stir for 2 minutes, breaking up any clumps, then add rice, once again stirring to break up clumps. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir until it's heated through.

Sprinkle with lime juice to taste.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I found this recipe online, tweaked it for our family -- they like it! YEAH!!!!

4 chicken breasts (frozen is okay)
1 can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can of milk
1 1/2 cup water
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1 package stuffing

1. Spray crock pot with Pam (DO THIS! I didn't and it was hard to get clean)
2. Lay chicken in the bottom
3. Mix soup and milk together - pour over chicken
[This is where I changed it. Dh is lactose intolerant and can't have the cream of chicken soup, so I put 1 1/2 cup boiling water over 2 smashed boullion cubes; stirred until mixed, added flour and whisked until creamy (add more water, if needed).
4. Mix water, melted butter and package of stuffing together. Spoon over soup/chicken.
(next time I'll add two packages, instead of one)
5. Cook on low 4 to 6 hours.

This was a little 'soupy/liquidy' for me, that is why I would add another package of stuffing.

I found this in CHF's recipe archives and it's soooo yummy!!!

Sopapilla cheesecake

1 hour 30 min prep

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
(use 2 Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations for 2 full sheets of dough w/o perforations)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract or almond extract
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar (½ cup sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a 9 x 13 baking pan, unroll one package of refrigerated crescent rolls and line the bottom of the pan. Flatten. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and extract. Spread over the crescent rolls. Unroll the other can of crescent rolls and place on top of cream cheese mixture. Pour one stick of melted butter or margarine over the top and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve with honey drizzled over the top.

This would be very good with cherry (or whatever flavor) pie filling on top of the cream cheese layer. I also wonder if you could use sheets of phyllo dough instead of the crescent rolls?

I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

Someone mentioned no bake cookies. DO you have a recipe for that? Any other suggestions for recipes that is simple and easy for a 8 year old to follow?

preferably using hashbrowns?

Or, could I make a 9x13 pan of cheesy potatoes in the oven and then put them in a crockpot to keep warm?

25yos, 23yos, 13 yod I guess I am old enough for adult children.

My stomach hurts, but I still choose joy! :-)

We had this for lunch and it was sooooooo good. Sorry I only have approximates.

3 chicken breasts
1/2 cup slivered almonds
salad greens
wonton wrappers

Bake the chicken breasts. I seasoned mine with Lawry's seasoning salt. Shred them and toss in the salad bowl with the salad greens and almonds. Cole slaw mix would work great as well as some bib lettuce cut in strips.

Cut wontons papers in strips and fry until golden brown. Add to salad mix.

Vinaigrette (these are all guesses, play with it. It should be slightly sweet)

I used 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1 minced garlic glove, some fresh chopped ginger, salt, about 1 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp of sugar and 2 tbsp of lemon juice. I whirled that in the food processor while adding 1/2 cup of olive oil.

Pour over the salad and eat. It was GREAT!

I started cleaning out the refrigerator today and ended up pan-frying some chicken and then cooking some veggies like: shredded carrots, tomatoes, celery, peppers and onions and whatever else was in there and not wilted.

When I got home, the family had made like an asian stir-fry out of the veggies by adding some kind of sauce (I have no idea what kind). Smile

Does anyone actually have a recipe for something like that??

2 packages of graham crackers
1/2 cup of melted butter
1/2 cup of sugar (I never add this)

Mix, and put in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

2 8oz cream cheese--room temperature
1 large container of cool whip
2 cups confectionary sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Beat cream cheese until smooth, then add sugar and vanilla beating until smooth again. Finally add cool whip, beating until well blended. Pour over crust.

2 cans cherry pie filling. Pour over top, refrigerate.

For toppings you can sub, any pie filling or any pudding made with the pie filling instructions. Our favorites are blue berry topping or butterscotch pudding. My sis likes pistachio.

1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
100 grams of butter (just short of 1/2 cup)
1/2 cups heavy cream

Mix sugar and cornstarch.
Add sugar mix to water in a thick bottomed pan on medium high heat. Whisk sugar and water until smooth, but after initial mixing, only swirl the mixture in the pan by tipping the pan.

Heat for 7 minutes. When mixture begins to boil and deepens in color, then it is ready for the next step.

Add the butter and mix until melted. Return to boiling and then add cream. The mixture may foam up to twice its size (sometimes does, sometimes doesn't--maybe humidity?). Mix well together and remove from heat. It thickens as it cools.

No kidding...you'll want to eat this by the bowlful. It makes a great lunch wrapped in a tortilla or a lettuce leaf.

Southern Salsa

1 can shoepeg corn (this is the little white corn kernels...You could substitute fresh Silver Queen if you had it)
1 can blackeyed peas
4 oz Braswell's sweet red pepper relish (I think this is only available in the South, and it's the "secret ingredient" in this recipe. I did find a similar sort of relish made by Cain's, for you New England gals).
2 chopped tomatoes
1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped small red onion
1/2 bottle Lite Italian dressing

Just mix everything together--what could be easier? And it is delicious and healthy!

Why when I cook chicken, fish, beef, pork either braising or baking or pan searing, that there is foam coming off the meat. What is that? Any help.

1.5 c rice
1 bullion cube
1 tbs of Maggi brand bullion with tomato or just add 2 more bullion cubes.
1 c cheap walmart salsa
2 c beans (canned or you cook em)
Cilantro and garlic salt to taste.

(Quick for white rice)Fry rice in a heavy saucepan or bean pot with a little oil or butter. Add bullions and salsa. Add 3.5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for 18-20 mins. Add beans cilantro and garlic salt. Serve with grated cheese and tortillas or chips.

(For brown rice lovers) Fry rice in an oven safe pot with a little oil or butter. Add bullions and salsa. Add 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and place in a 350 degree oven for an hour. Add beans cilantro and garlic salt. Serve with grated cheese and tortillas or chips.

Maggi brand bullion is CHEAP and is available at Walmart in the Mexican food isle. It comes in a BIG plastic jar that is Yellow and 10 inches tall with a red lid. It is much cheaper than regular bullion cubes but it is missing something... I don't know what... So I add a bullion cube just to even out the flavor. Walmart GV brand also has the best tortilla mix... just add water and send your kids to work... they love this! Much easier to learn flipping than pancakes!

This recipe is the best BBQ chicken pizza we've ever eaten!! I did use my own whole wheat bread dough for the crust. Otherwise, I followed the recipe.
