  • We are big fans of "Lazy cooking" - and this is great for when you have overnight guests and you don't want to have to fix breakfast for everyone the next morning.  It's a very versatile dish as well; you can add or substitute things like ham and sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, etc.  Let your imagination run wild!
  • Crockpot Omelette Casserole
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 (32 oz) bag of frozen hashbrown potatoes -- partially thawed
  • 1 (pound) of bacon cut into small pieces -- fried and drained
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • salt and pepper (and any other desired seasonings) to taste
  • As if you were making lasagna, layer your ingredients as such (bottom to top):
  • 1. potatoes
  • 2. bacon (or other meats)
  • 3. onions (or other vegetables)
  • 4. cheese
  • 5. potatoes
  • 6. bacon (or other meats)
  • 7. onions (or other vegetables)
  • 8. cheese
  • Now, beat the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper together. Pour this over the whole mixture. Cook on low for ten to twelve hours.  (10 servings)

With spring under way in the US, more and more folks will be spending time grilling and such.  And this is one of our favorite summertime pasta salads.
  • BLT Pasta Salad
  • 1 lb. pasta
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 medium-large tomatoes
  • 2-3 bunches of green onions, plus extra for garnish (optional)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and pour into large mixing bowl.  Fry 8 slices of bacon and, when cool enough to handle, crumble into bite sized pieces. Set aside.  Chop tomatoes and green onions, add to small mixing bowl. Mix in mayonnaise and vinegar. Add salt and pepper, to taste.  Pour mayonnaise mixture over macaroni and stir together well. Stir in the crumbled bacon.  Serve in a pretty dish with some chopped green onions sprinkled on top.

  • And the Result of our Indiegogo Hamvention Campaign Is...
  • Our Indiegogo campaign was NOT fully funded, so we will NOT be at Hamvention this year.  Thank you to those that DID contribute (and you will get your money back shortly, if you've not already gotten it, from indiegogo)... maybe next year we can do this all again.  While I (Cheryl) "gripe" about things like exploding toilets and such at Hamvention, the folks I have met over the years have been wonderful.

  • Since we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day tomorrow (although this episode won't go out in time), I am sharing my recipe for the item I will be fixing for dinner tomorrow night.  I have some Irish heritage, so I'm a fan of SOME Irish foods.  But, who can go wrong with some tasty Shepherd's Pie?
  • Shepherd's Pie
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) beef gravy (or homemade!)
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (peas and carrots)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-1/2 cups mashed potatoes
  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in the gravy, vegetables, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.  Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Spread potatoes over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through. (for some extra yum, add some shredded cheddar cheese to the top of the potatoes in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking). Yield: 4 servings.
