Turkey and Cranberry Sandwich... "YUM"

I've never had a turkey and cranberry sandwich, not until 5 years ago, and after I came across this recipe, which was posted by Emily Mathews at food.com. The turkey and cranberry sauce goes so well together, plus the bacon, mayo, and provolone cheese, brings this sandwich over the top. I love this sandwich, and hope others will give it a try!

I have a really delicious Apple Dip recipe to share!

I hope members of this group will try this delicious dip recipe. You can serve this as an appetizer, snack, or even as a dessert if you like. Plus you can choose your favorite type of apple to go along with this dip. I happen to like Granny Smith and Golden Delicious Apples.

Hi, I am a new stay at home mom...and I love it! My son is almost 6 months and we just moved to a Hawaiian island from Rhode Island on the east coast.
Things are very different here, but I love to stay home with my baby and keep up the house while cooking.

Farmer's Market Delight

This morning, me and my sis took a trip over to a farmer's market in our little town and I must say it was delightful! I got a huge loaf of 4 cheese bread with provolone, parmesan, asiago and something else baked right in... Can we say YUMMY? I also bought some "lime pickles" and they are out of this world, still trying to figure out what to do with them, besides eating them straight out of the jar. Corn, peppers and tomatoes, Oh my!!! So much to choose from, so little time to think about dinner, but we shall see :-) What do you get from your farmers market?

home made hamburger helper

Once again the bills outweighed the finances and I didn't have any money to buy food. All I had left in the cupboard was a pound and a half of ground beef, a couple carrots, an onion, some garlic, some leftover seasoning mix I used for my oven fried chicken on monday, frozen peas, greenbeans, some leftover sauce that I used to glaze a meatloaf last week, and the oven fried chicken (was great on both)... and some rice.

I minced the onion carrots and garlic. sauteed that with some olive oil
browned the ground beef
made the rice in the microwave
defrosted the peas and green beans
diluted the sauce (about half sauce half water)
and added the seasoning mixture --

cooked the beef with the sautee'd vegetables, added the seasoning mixture to the beef mixture, added the peas , green beans, and sauce... mixed it up well (the sauce and the flour seasoning mixture made a nice gravy) and mixed in the rice.... all in one pan and wow, it was really tasty, very filling, and theres a ton of leftovers.

who needs hamburger helper?

Back to school food

Now that summer is almost over, what are you planning to prepare on those school nights? Anything easy, semi homemade, or made from scratch?
