Now on with the show!
Deanna Caswell presents Stove Top Popcorn posted at Little House in the Suburbs, saying, “I have been popping my own corn in the cast iron kettle for a couple of months now. When Mr. Ivory and I had some regular microwave popcorn recently we were shocked at our reaction…BLECH! I thought I was being frugal, cutting down on waste, eliminating questionable oils and preservatives. I did NOT intend to ruin us for life on the store-bought stuff! But, that’s exactly what happened.”
Angie presents My Absolute Favorite Salad posted at Cooking for a Circus Has to be Simple, saying, “To me, it’s the combination of the strawberry, pear, pecan and gorgonzola that makes this salad top my list.”
She also adds this great recipe for Cream Cheese Crock Pot Chicken . “The first year of the twins life we lived on crock pot dinners since that’s all I seemed to be able to manage. This recipe is by far my families favorite”
Tina presents Mommy’s Kitchen: Creamy Chicken Noodle Bake posted at Mommy’s Kitchen, saying, “This dish is a family favorite in our house. It’s so simple to throw together especially if you are pressed for time. If you want a creamy dreamy casserole this is the dish for you. My Creamy Chicken Casserole really screams comfort food. Serve with a salad and fresh bread or rolls and your meal is complete.”
She also included Kielbasa & Bow Tie Pasta posted at Mommy’s Kitchen, saying, “This is another simple one dish meal. It is one dish because you prepare the whole meal in one skillet, minus cooking the past but it really doesnt get any simplier than this. I am always on the look out for new recipe using smoked sausage and this. I saw this recipe awhile back and tried it and it is definitly a keeper. It turns out so pretty and colorful.”
Tina has been a busy bee! Here is another favorite for not only her family but her readers as well! Salisbury Steak Crock Pot Style “This is my all time favorite salisbury steak recipe. I have been making it for years to many to count. I can always depend on this dish to turn out perfect everytime. It is very versaitle and can be served with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice. Dont buy another Frozen Salsibury Steak dinner again, this is really easy to prepare and so so much better.”
Christy at Southern Plate presents Chocolate Cobbler. “Growing up, we had this probably once a week. I always thought it was because everyone liked it so much but according to Mama, the frequency of this dessert had a lot more to do with it being so quick, easy, and most importantly: budget friendly. Generally, most folks have these ingredients on hand. It doesn’t hurt that you don’t even need an egg for it!”
She also includes Southern Hoe Cake and states ” I can honestly say that this is a rare recipe, having searched and not found it anywhere online. I do hope you will try it and guarantee that if you like biscuits, you’ll LOVE hoe cake. Out of all of my recipes that folks try from Southern Plate, this one ALWAYS gets rave reviews!”
Donna Murray presents » The Red Hat Society Cookbook Yellow Jeep Blonde: What do you do AFTER the kids grow up. . . posted at Yellow Jeep Blonde, saying, “I’ve enjoyed these since I was a little girl. It’s a recipe that I’ll pass down to my own children. They’re so easy and always a big hit!!”
Debbie presents Soup’s On! posted at Ahhh SomeSoups, saying, “This is my favorite soup of all time….well, one of them anyway. There is just something about soups…nice to come home to, you can do them the day ahead and they make your house smell so good.”
Laura presents Real Mom Kitchen: Freezer Hash Brown Casserole posted at Real Mom Kitchen, saying, “Here is a delicious and easy breakfast dish. You can make it a head of time and have it ready to go in the freezer for when you want it.”
CzechFolks presents Exploring Czech Food – Part I (Poznavame Ceske Jidla – Dil I.) posted at CzechFolks.com, saying, “Czech Food from Czech/American website. In both languages. Easy to make.”
That concludes this edition. Special thanks to everyone who participated and please feel free to get your submissions in if you’d like to be in the next edition! Everyone is welcome provided you have a simple family recipe on your blog that is a favorite!
