Basic 'Use-It-Up' Quiche
Basic 'Use-It-Up' Quiche

Perfect recipe for using up leftovers! If you have eggs, milk, rice and cheese, you can practically clean out your fridge right into your quiche pan. Sometimes I even add some leftover meat. It can be served fresh hot or cold or freeze...

Beef Heart Jerky for Dogs
Beef Heart Jerky for Dogs

Beef heart is highly nutritious and in this area is very cheap and sometimes free. I cut the slices at least 1/2" thick so the pups can chew it for a while.

Bread Machine Bread Bowls
Bread Machine Bread Bowls

I've been finding that making bread bowls can be tricky because if you let them rise too long, they tend to flatten out. Try to stick to the timing as best you can. Use the 2lb. setting on your machine if you have the option.

Canned Corn
Canned Corn

Raw Pack canned corn - adapted from the Ball Blue Book. A great tip I heard here on Zaar is to use an angel food cake pan when cutting the kernels off the cob. Just place the cop on the center point of the pan and cut around the...

This is my version of a 'Wendy's' style chili. As usual, I put in LOTS of garlic but this is optional. Top this with some shredded cheddar cheese, serve with garlic bread and you've got a hit! Always tastes better...

Cranberry Sauce

Super easy to make and you know what's in it! Homemade ALWAYS beats that gelatinous mess that comes in a can. Always a hit with company too.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup

This is a wonderful fall or winter comfort food. The recipe can use either cauliflower or broccoli. UPDATE: I need to mention that I usually reserve some of the cauliflower pieces on the side before I blend, so I get a mixture of...

Escargot Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Escargot Stuffed Mushroom Caps

The flavours here are complex. Very mild tasting. This is a wonderful addition to a wine & cheese party. But they are equally at home while tailgating!

Fresh Garlic Pork Sausage
Fresh Garlic Pork Sausage

This is the recipe I use when we butcher a pig in the fall. A great, general, all-round sausage that's great on a bun, on pizza or included in other recipes.

From 'The Electric Slow Cooker Cookbook' (Circa 1976) I've been using this recipe for nearly 20 years. Sweet yet savory at the same time.

Irish Beef Stew
Irish Beef Stew

This is "Hands Down" the best I've ever made! The thyme is what sets it appart. The garlic will end up very mild. Use less if you like. (I have now edited the recipe to include corn starch to thicken the broth. This of course is...

Lemon Glazed Carrots
Lemon Glazed Carrots

This makes a perfect side dish for a Turkey dinner. It's the ONLY way I can get my in-laws to eat carrots. I prefer to steam the carrots, but you can boil them if you don't have a steamer. You can also slice regular carrots...

Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

This is our favorite homemade ice cream. From the Rival ice cream manual. Be patient while adding the small bit of milk to the eggs. The slower you can add the eggs to the hot mixture the easier it will be to thicken. Time does NOT...

The dressing in this recipe is what it's all about! Any substitutions will definitely have an effect on this one, so I encourage you to follow the recipe as close as you can. Do not drain the anchovies. Use the whole can, liquid...

Perfect pickled eggs every time. A nice clean, store-bought look too! I often add a jar of these in my gift baskets. If you follow the directions, you should get a perfect peel every time. I buy organic, fresh eggs, hot-off-the-chicken...

Potato Pizza
Potato Pizza

I can't remember where this came from. I think it may have been Women's Day magazine. It is truly unique and a creative savory alternative to regular pizza. We love it and consider it a special treat 2 or 3 times a year.
