I Made It-Syrup

This makes ALOT of syrup. I was glad that I saved my empty bottle to put it all in.
Here is what it looks like before it is heated.
Here it is after boiling for about 40 minutes. Boil the syrup for 40-50 minutes on mid-high heat. You boil til it reaches the thickness that you would prefer. Remember to refrigerate after it has cooled.

I Made It (Zucchini Soup and Sweet Rolls)

I make this Zucchini Soup often it is so delicious. We top it with Sour Cream, Mozzarella Cheese, and Bacon oh soooo good. I think the toppings make it even better. Watch Out when you blend it, the heat expands and I did have a little explosion!
The Sweet Rolls were ok, not my favorite, that said they are very easy to make but did not taste sweet (why they call them "sweet rolls" I don't know).


Porcupine Meatballs, Do you know the Recipe? Cont....

Brenda remembers Porcupines as follows
1 lb ground beef (not the cheep stuff not too expensive)
1/2 onion chop fine
about 1/4 cup rice
pack into meat ball (not too tight)
brown in frying pan on med to med-high
then add a can of tomato juice to almost cover meat balls
cook over med heat until done.

This is the recipe that I use in the Ray house

1 lb ground meat (I have used ground turkey really good)
1/2 cup uncooked instant rice (I use a brown rice)
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup chopped onion (some times I use dry onion 2 Tbs)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground pepper (you really should always use ground pepper its just better)
1 (8oz ) can tomato sauce
1 c water
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (woozy sauce)

In large bowl, mix meat, rice, 1/2 cup water , onion, salt, garlic and pepper. Shape in to balls. Place in ungreased 8 inch baking dish. Stir together remaining ingredients; pour over meatballs. Cover with foil. Bakes at 350 for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more.

Now that I have both recipes I think I will brown my meatballs be for adding the sauce

We all agreed that they are served best with mash potatoes! (I would add an ice cold coke out of the can)


Porcupine Meatballs, Do you know the Recipe?

Do you remember the smell of Grandma cooking her Porcupine Meatballs on the stove top? They are one my favorite memories of her, when I make them my house smells so good. I have a recipe from my ward cookbook but I never found Grandma's recipe, does anyone have it?


I made It (Onion Rings)

This is the batter. It is pretty thick, I used seasoning salt instead of regular salt. I dip each onion one of the time and placed it in the frying pan. Here they are in the oil. I only used a little bit of vegatable oil. I didn't want the batter to come off so I cooked each side about 3 minutes.

I have cooked onion rings many times, put this was the easiest and Best recipe I have tried.

I made it (Chicken Casserole)


It turned out really good. I served it with side of peas. I think next time I will use 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. It was very good, but I would like it a little creamer. I cooked it in a 9X13 pan and it fit perfectly.


I Made It (Macaroni Salad)

Recipe HERE

We used 1 lb of Ditalini pasta in place of the elbow, added a few more pickles and a whole cup of frozen peas. SO yummy the pickles make it taste like a summer at Grandmas

Sour Cream Enchiladas


I Made It (Navajo Tacos)

These turn out really big, I think you could definitely feed three to four people depending on how much stuff you load on top. I think next time I will add some shredded beef to it.

Super easy to make, I think it probably took 25 minutes from start to finish.

Barbecued Spareribs

(In a saucepan stir remaining ingredients and bring to boil)

Oven Baked Potatoes


I Made It (Texas Sheet Cake)

I used a 10 X 15 pan. Fill it to the top, remember to spray with cooking spray.

When making the icing, heat the milk up a bit to help melt the butter.
