The Site Is Back

This entry was posted in General Musings by Cleave on

First, let me apologize for the site being bonkward for the past few days. During a site update the database was misplaced and we had to go hunt for it. Was a odd journey, but everything is now up and running.

Remember folks, Twitter can be your friend at the oddest of times. This time it saved my but and the site as well.

Hope you all continue to enjoy the site. Even though I have not posted much of late, I do maintain all of the site and create all the graphics and make most of the screen shots that you have enjoyed over the years.

This will fe a Samhain to remember, Halloween for all those that are not history buffs.

Peanut Butter Candy

Recipes_From_The_FridgeWhile making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me.

Peanut Butter Candy

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup peanut butter

Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil on medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix well. Pour into parchment lined 9 x 13 pan. Will set quickly. Cut into 1-inch squares when set.

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150Broccoli and Pork Tetrazzini is a recipe I just fashioned from the top of my head, and it turned out so well, it seemed like it was time to share it with the world. Not too quick and easy, but satisfying and comforting. Great in any season, and with about 15 minutes in prep and 30 minutes baking, this will be a big hit at a potluck dinner after church, temple (if pork is permitted), oak grove gathering, or anytime you need something for that party that you know will make the guests talk about it all month long and ask for the recipe. Okay, time to share!
Broccoli and Pork Tetrazzini
1 lb frozen broccoli florets
1 lb angel hair pasta
2 TBSP olive oil
1 lb boneless pork chops, cubed
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp dried chives
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 TBSP tapioca starch or corn starch
2 TBSP milk
Water
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Rho’s Sausage Casserole

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeI was looking for a new kind of dish to make for a wintry night, and had limited choices as to what to use for my main ingredient. Chicken and pork chops were frozen, but then i remembered that I had purchased some fresh market made sausage, great stuff, only four ingredients, pork, salt, pepper, and fennel! from Brickyard Market earlier that week, and it was still there, unopened, and soon the Taste Of Home casserole book was set aside for my own creation….

1 lb fresh sausage
1 cup macaroni
1 large carrot
1 cup broccoli
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp flour
water
1/2 cup sour cream
salt, pepper, garlic powder
1/2 shredded Colby jack cheese.

preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook sausage in skillet or wok till done, prepare macaroni according to directions on package. Stir fry carrots, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower and spices into sausage. Mix, flour, milk, and water as for making a gravy, add to sausage and vegetable mix until thickened, then add sour cream. Add cooked and drained macaroni to sausage mix, mix well, and transfer to greased 9×13 pan. Top with shredded cheese, then bake for 1/2 hour.

Maple Blondie – A coffee cocktail

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeWell, I’m sure we’ve all felt the clipper this week, but here is something sweet and warm from Musings to help you heat up this weekend

Maple Blondie

8oz hot coffee
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sugar
Dash of vanilla extract
2 tsp half and half
1 shot of silver rum

How to mix this is very simple. You will first pour the half and half into the mug then add the maple, the vanilla, and the sugar to the half and half. Pour half the coffee you are going to use into the mix, the add your rum, and then stir in to rest of the coffee. A simpler recipe there could not be for a cold winter’s day or any day of the year!
