  • Here's a recipe I made up the other night and it was a HUGE hit! I had few ingredients in the house but wanted something other than stupid burgers...again! So I created something for which I don't really have a name, but it was delicious, if I do say so myself! I don't usually measure with instruments. I use my hands as measuring cups and spoons, so I'm estimating the amounts.

    I made glazed carrots alongside this recipe (in the steamer) and while I imagined that combo being strange, it was strangely good!

    Creamy Beefy Noodle...Stuff
    1 lb. ground beef
    2 cans cream of mushroom soup
    1/2 C. (or so) milk
    1 1/2 Tbsp. parsely (small palm size)
    3/4 C. grated parmesan cheese (3-4 good handfuls)
    12 oz. egg noodles (I used the thick, old-fashioned kind...not "No Yolks" like I usually do)

    While egg noodles are cooking, brown ground beef and drain. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and heat through. Drain the noodles and stir into beef mixture.

    Glazed Carrots
    8-10 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1 1/2"-2" strips OR small bag of peeled baby carrots
    2-3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
    2-3 Tbsp. light brown sugar
    1 pack of dry ranch dressing mix

    Cook the carrots however you like (I steamed mine while the other stuff was cooking, but they can be boiled if you'd prefer.) In a microwave-safe bowl with a lid (I used a large Tupperware bowl), melt butter. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Stir in ranch dressing mix and add carrots. With the lid tightly secured, shake the bowl until all carrots are well coated.

  • These are great for pot-lucks, family dinners, or parties. I put it on in the morning and it's ready to go by the time we need it. It's SO easy and yummy!

    Cheesy Potatoes
    2 (16 oz) bags of hash browns (the square kind, not shredded)
    2 blocks of cream cheese
    2 Cans cream of mushroom soup
    2 (16 oz.) bags of shredded cheddar cheese

    Mix all ingredients in the crock pot on cook on Low for 6-8 hours or on High for 4-5 hours.

    **Around Christmas time, I add diced red & green peppers to create a little extra color!

  • I made stir fry tonight. I guess everyone has tried this, but when I am coming to the end of the week, I always go through the cupboards and fridge to see how I can use anything left. I will call this recipe "Anything Stir Fry", because I have literally put anything in it. Tonight it was chicken.

    Cubed up some frozen chicken breasts that were not enough to make another meal out of.

    Fried in pan/wok with onion, pepper that was going wrinkly in fridge and some mushrooms that were starting to look a bit sad. Add garlic and/or chilli/ginger. (have also used frozen peas/corn/beans, broccoli, tomatoes..... spring onions, zucchini (we call them courgettes I think) the options are endless).

    Boil up some noodles (any sort you have lying around is fine. Tonight we had medium egg noodles)

    Drain well.

    Chuck in wok for a bit

    Splash on oyster or soy sauce.

    Tada!

    So really, not so much of a recipe as a "chuck in anything you have left".
