1 lb. or ground meat browned and drained
I package of taco seasoning mix
1 can of homony — use the liquid
1 can whole kernel cornuse the liquid
2 cans of rotel tom. Mildif you want it real spicy, us can use the hot rotel.
2 cans ranch style beanuse the liquid
Mix all ing. Together and simmer until blendedabout 30 min
If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, my secret recipe is:
Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute.
Just put it on or in anything. And don’t be shy about it.
Muffins!!! Egg EASY meal-preps.
Spray a muffin/cupcake pan w/ non-stick spray.
Fill with ANYthing you want: ham & bro...ccoli, chicken & carrots, spinach w/ feta & tomatoes, steak & bell peppers....whatever you have in the fridge. (Note: add all veggies RAW - they will cook to perfection during the baking process)
Mix approx 1 egg per/muffin in a blender w/ a splash of milk. Pour directly into each cup just below the rim.
Top with shredded or sliced cheeses of your choice.
Bake at 425 degrees for approx 20 min.
Let cool before removing from pan
These can be stored in your fridge for up to 3-4 days! Simply warm in the microwave for a quick breakfast on-the-go!
Happily, I’m not doing Thanksgiving this year..going to friends, but I’m looking for a great appetizer that is somewhat Thanksgiving themed/related...open to suggestions
Okay, here goes - I made two types of pancetta - one with a lamb belly and one with a pork belly.
The Cure (hat tip to The Cure)
- pepper corns (26 g)
- juniper berries (5g)
- kosher salt (31g)
- pink salt, number 1 (10g)
- nutmeg (2g)
- bay leaves (3 medium)
- garlic (5 sm cloves)
- thyme (4 sprigs)
- brown sugar (16 g)
These numbers were for a 3.1 lb pork belly. Adjust your amounts to the size of your belly, using the same ratios.
I use a coffee grinder, but you want it pretty coarse. Apply the rub to all sides of the belly, corners and sides and all!
Place it in a nonreactive container, covered by plastic wrap, or use a 1 or 2 gallon plastic storage bag like I do.
Toss it in the fridge, and put something heavy on it. I use a cast iron skillet. Every day, flip it over, and massage it to evenly coat the rub.
After a week, give or take a day or two, and after it is firm to the touch (more time for thicker pieces, obviously), pull it out!
You can cook it and eat it as is - it’s basically fresh bacon at that point.
I’m on my smart phone, so I’ll finish this later!
Pretty cool - thanks!
In a large bowl
2 cups water
2 very ripe banana's
1 quarter butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cinnomon
nuke the mess for about two and 1/2 min to melt the butter and warm everything up .. if not warm enough to start the yeast .. nuke a little more
sort'a whisk it all together ... don't worry about getting all the egg broken and etc.
Preheat oven 350
1/2 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup whole pecans
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup bread yeast (for bread machines)
Mix it all up and start with;
4 cups flour
gradujally add another 4 cups flour
knead and separate into six equal sections
knead each section into a small bread shape and place in butter and floured cheap, 3" X 6" aluminum bread tin
melt some butter and brush the tops
sprinkle sugar/cinnomon mix over the top
Shut off preheated stove
place loaves in to rise about 2 hrs (for me and my elevation)
Bake 350 1 1/2 hrs (for my elev., etc.
6 fantastic start your day with coffee and toast slathered in butter.
I'll probably die from this stuff, but three years ago I endeavored to make raisin bread and I couldn't stop until now.
OOPS ... forgot 1/2 teaspoon salt somewhere in that mixing things up
What a GREAT idea ... THANX !
Lots of Vitamin C, could use it for punch using club soda. I like it better than OJ and sour lemonade by themselves.
1 can Minutemaid Orange Juice Original Premium (double the tiny can but not the super size can, I looked it's 12 oz size)
1 can Minutemaid Lemonade Original Premium
1 gallon container or I use a cleaned out gallon milk jug
Thaw, using a funnel, pour the OJ concentrate into jug
Put a scant 1/2 cup superfine sugar (can use regular or sweetener) into the can)
Fill with very warm water and STIR, pour thru funnel.
Add 3 more cans of cold water
Repeat with Lemonade only add 3 cans cold water
Put on cap and shake (carefully) each time before serving, store in fridge.
Adjust water to taste if you like
Kids love it.
It's a pretty color. It's a little more diluted than instructions say. I wasn't drinking orange juice because it's acidic in the morning. To counter that, the doctor told me to drink more WATER. So I drink two cups when i take my meds. Then the acidic juice doesn't usually upset my stomach.
Ever try linguine in white clam sauce? Easy and fast meal.
can of Progresso (or similar) white clam sauce
linguine or some pasta of choice
garlic, olive oil, basil (optional), parmesan, pepper
Saute a clove or 2 of garlic in some olive oil and remove when brown. Add the oil to the clam sauce.
heat up the clam sauce in a small pot for 5 minutes low heat.
boil up the pasta until nearly soft then drain but save a little of the pasta water to add in to the pasta dish if needed for more moisture. Mix in all the above in a larger pot and cook for a few minutes mixing the ingredients frequently. Can even add in a can of albacore white tuna for a more chunky hearty dish. Mix again, add in black pepper, cheese and chopped basil (fresh or dried) to taste.
I found this recipe online and changed it slightly
Savory Pork Stew
2 lbs pork stew meat
1/4 cup flour
2 tbl olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 green and 1 red bell pepper, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 15 oz can beef broth
1 can stewed tomatoes
8 red potatoes, cut to desired size
1 can cream of onion soup
1 1/4 cup of milk
1 Tbl Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
Season pork with salt and pepper. Lightly coat pork chunks in flour, then brown quickly in olive oil in a large pot. Add in remaining ingredients, heat to boil and then down to simmer. Simmer for 1 hour.
Here’s a sandwich filling recipe that is a favorite at our house:
Egg and olive sandwiches:
4-6 hardboiled eggs (depending on how much you want to make.)
A dash of mayo
Enough prepared mustard to suit your taste
1/2 to 1 C pimento stuffed olives. (well drained)
Dice the eggs up pretty small
Chop the olives into small pieces
Dash of salt, black pepper to taste.
Use enough mayo and mustard to get a good consistency that will stay on the bread. Store leftovers in a snap-lock container and refrigerate.
This is especially good on Black Bavarian Rye Bread—but is good on any kind of toasted bread.
