    I dont usually do recipes. I tend to get out the ingredients I have and come up with something. So I am big on tossing stuff together. If I could only have one thing today, it would be roasted rutabaga with garlic. yum-o

    My favorite recipe? Well, I have a few actually. One is cabbage rolls–so easy to do once you have the leaves all prepared. I did that preparation in august when the cabbages were picked from the garden. Basically I just boil the entire head of cabbage (cored) and keep loosening the leaves and taking them off. Then I freeze them. When I’m ready I thaw the leaves. I usually just soak them in warm water. While I’m going that, I cook up some ground beef, with onions, and in another pot I cook rice. I mix both together, and then fill each leaf separately. Then I freeze the cabbage rolls on a cookie sheet, and store them in freezer bags when they are frozen. I fill my roaster up with them when I want to cook them, cover them with tomato soup and voila!

    Love your work. Thanks for sharing.

    I love all the wonderful recipes you guys have posted. I don’t use a lot of recipes, usually just throw things together. Here is a salad recipe that I like to make. Sorry no measurements as I just eyeball it.

    Green leaf or red leaf lettuce
    1/2 a minced onion
    vinegar (splash for flavor)
    canola oil (usually cover the bottom of the bowl I am making salad in)
    about 1 tablespoon sugar

    Combine onion, vinegar, oil and sugar and stir until sugar is disolved. Add lettuce and toss. Can add a heaping tablespoon of sour cream for a little bit different dressing if desired and don’t add sugar, use salt and pepper to taste.

    my favorite recipe is for a zuchini soup that i have been making for a while now. it’s everyone’s favorite! it’s a great way to make even the kiddies eat their veggies! you simply cook zucchini, celery, carrots, and onions in butter. Add milk. Stir until cooked. Blend them in your blender until smooth. Pour back into pot, add a little cream and some sour cream and salt and pepper to tast and you’re done! 🙂

    Great blog candy!!
    Those cookies look super yummy! I just LOVE frosted sugar cookies!!
    Here’s one of my favs from better homes and gardens:


    2 14 ½ -ounce cans chunky pasta style tomatoes
    1 4-ounce can diced green chili peppers
    ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions (2)
    ¼ cup snipped cilantro or parsley
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 clove garlic, minced
    ¼ teaspoon salt

    Drain tomatoes, reserving 1/3 cup juice; discard remaining juice
    Combine tomatoes and reserved juice, chili peppers, green onions, cilantro or parsley, lemon juice, pepper, garlic and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cover and chill at least 4 hours before serving. Cover and chill leftovers up to 2 weeks.
    Makes about 2 ¾ cups salsa.

    ( I use 1 can plain diced tomatoes, 1 can mexican diced tomatoes.
    I leave out the cilantro/parsley and salt.
    I also run everything through the food processor).
