Deviled Eggs

1y ago
Nothing pleases my husband more than Deviled Eggs. Well, except another NewEgg.com delivery, maybe. Deviled eggs are a classic American appetizer, high in Vitamin B-12, riboflavin and Vitamin A, as well as essential amino acids and Omega 3 fatty acid. While high in cholesterol, this recipe can be modified in several ways to significantly reduce the cholesterol in each serving. Reduced-Cholesterol Versions Use only half the egg yolks (you’ll have to add something more to complete the filling mix, such as more mayo, or both mayo and greek yogurt). This reduces cholesterol to 94 mg (or 31% US RD ..read more

Butterflied Lobster Tails

We like to do lobster for special events like birthdays and New Years Eve parties. This is what we did on NYE 2022 – me & the guys had some fun with fish [rather, crustaceans]. But hubby likes to create a seafood fest, so we had lobster tail, shrimp, and boiled scallops. We got a 10-oz lobster tail, and two 3-oz tails. I find working with the small tails difficult so I used that monster lobster tail for this, and then let my husband learn on the two smaller ones. I wear gloves not only for sanitary reasons, but the shell can be sharp, and the vinyl glove does provide some protection. For p ..read more

Leftover turkey: usually, by the time I get around to planning this turkey tetrazzini casserole, the leftovers are gone. So, this is a long time coming, I finally did it! Having never made this before, I was not confident of the outcome, but it turned out great. So hot, with an adequate amount of flavors and textures. It’s a great casserole dish. Ingredients: butter garlic mushrooms salt & pepper sage flour leftover turkey cream cheese chicken broth Cream of Mushroom soup peas celery onion Monterey Jack cheese Parmesan cheese Spaghetti Panko I know that’s a lot of stuff, but you can b ..read more

Grandpa’s Bean Soup

My Grandpa made the best Navy bean soup. I always thought it was because he served in the Navy during the Korean War. I imagined him on the ship, peeling potatoes, working in the kitchen. Most of my memories of Grandpa are in his basement listening to the American Graffiti soundtrack on the record player, or in the kitchen – in everybody’s kitchens. This is a simple soup for a cold day, and I like to make all my soups “chunky” so I did alter the original recipe, just a bit. Grandpa’s Ingredients dry navy beans (1 lb.) water (7 c.) diced cooked ham (2 c.) minced onion (1/4 c.) salt, pepper bay ..read more

Classic Green Bean Casserole

It’s not Thanksgiving without Green Bean Casserole. I used to hate this stuff as a kid. I just couldn’t stomach it. But when it was my turn to learn Thanksgiving, I had to figure out why it was disgusting. It didn’t take long to figure out I hated french cut green beans. And the sauce was just too saucy – it was a soupy mess. So I switched my recipe to regular canned green beans and that made it a little better. This year, I switched it up again and used frozen green beans. They must be cooked first, so I steamed them to perfection (just a little firm, and not too mushy). I’m very happy with t ..read more

I found this recipe and thought it sounded simple & tasty, related to Hamburger Helper in some way, but a homemade casserole. It’s an old fashioned form of hamburger helper, just another beef noodle casserole. It might not even be Amish, but it’s a different flavor if you’re a little tired of your usual Goulash. Ingredients Egg Noodles (the whole bag) ground beef condensed tomato soup condensed cream of mushroom soup milk Worcestershire sauce garlic onion salt, pepper Parmesan cheese I guess I forgot the milk & Parmesan cheese in this photo session.

This makes a moist & tasty cornbread casserole, but you could make muffins from it, too. I like to add sour cream to make it extra moist.

Or, if you’re filling the oven with all the side dishes ..read more
