NO BAKE (SKILLET) CASSEROLES
Friday, September 01, 2017      1 comments

Someone on my team said that my casseroles sound good but it's too hot to turn on the oven. That's a definite problem with summer veggies - it's too hot to bake or can, or even cook. (Can you imagine cooking on a wood stove in a house with no a/... Read more
PEPPER STUFFING
Tuesday, August 29, 2017      3 comments

I used to like Stuffed Peppers, or at least the stuffing. I didn't like the slimy, flabby peppers themselves. Yuck! Eventually I had a flash of brilliance. I could chop up the peppers and mix them with the stuffing and avoid those nasty pepper s... Read more

A few happenstances led to my buying some fresh cauliflower and hence making this tomorrow night. Probably. At least that's my plan. It started when I drove a friend to a local grocery store so he could pay his electric bill. While I was there, ... Read more

This recipe comes from one in "Pillsbury 30-Minute Meals with Chicken and Ground Beef." I don't know how old the cook book is, but I'm guessing mid-70s. The original recipe was for soup, but I left out the two cups each of water and beef broth y... Read more

Another egg and meat fast day yesterday, so a bit more expensive than usual. Actually, it wasn't the fast that made it expensive but the fact that I had beef for supper. Pork and chicken and eggs are much cheaper. It's unfortunate that I'm... Read more
