    Variation: Onion-Garlic Cheese Ball

    My darling sister (PT Screen Name: TigerBlossom) made a second Cheese Ball that was as fabulous as the first. I'm posting it here, because I've been misplacing recipes lately, and want to keep this one for reference later.

    Onion-Garlic Cheese Ball

    1/2 small white onion, minced
    1 clove garlic (I think I'd bake the garlic clove to 'gentle' the flavor)
    Dash of Worchestershire Sauce
    1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
    Brick of Cream Cheese (softened)
    Minced pecans

    Mix the first 5 ingredients with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of pecans. Shape into a ball (or log), roll in remaining pecans. Sprinkle with paprika and chill before serving.

    Serve with chips or crackers, as prefered.

    I was just thinking about this thread yesterday.

    Here is one of my favorite recipes. I don't usually like meatloaf, but I love this.

    Spinach Meatloaf

    1c meatless spaghetti sauce, divided
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1c soft whole wheat bread crumbs
    1/4c finely chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tsp dried basil
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp ground mustard
    1 lb. lean ground turkey
    1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
    1/2c shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

    In bowl combine 1/4c spaghetti sauce, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, & mustard. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.

    On a sheet of waxed paper, pat turkey mixture into a 12 in. x 8 in. rectangle. Sprinkle with spinach and cheese. Roll up "jelly-roll" style, starting with a short side and peeling waxed paper away while rolling. Seal seam and ends. Place seam side down in a 15 x 10 in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.

    Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 50-60 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Heat remaining spaghetti sauce, serve over turkey.

    Ok, I think I'm on to something here. I just invented a dip that I think turned out awesome. Not only does it taste great, but it looks beautiful.

    3oz (1/2 bar) of cream cheese
    1 jar of Marshmallow creme (the kind you put on icecream)
    Craisens (the dried cranberries)

    Soften the marshmallow creme and cream cheese so that it mixes easily. Mix the two together. Fold in cranberries. Sprinkle top with nuts and cranberries for an added touch. Serve with wheat thins or pretzles.


    Thank you Wolfie!

    Sheesh Tonya - reading that recipe reminded me of some of the weird things I ate when I was pregnant.

    (I think the strangest was a blend of pickled onions and avocado, chopped in the blender, and spread thickly on toasted bread - yummy!!!)

    Thanks Kay for my great sig & avatar!!!

    Tomato Salad

    Don Juan's Mom made the yummiest Tomato Salad at the recent barbeque and she's sharing the recipe. YUM!

    4 good-sized good quality (farmers market or backyard) tomatoes, cored and diced small
    1 bunch curly-leaf parsley, stemmed and finely chopped
    1/3 cup orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
    1/4 cup or thereabouts extra-virgin olive oil
    Dash white wine vinegar
    Garlic salt to taste
    Pepper to taste

    Cook orzo according to package directions. After draining, rinse in cold water. Combine cooked orzo, diced tomatoes and chopped parsley in a bowl and mix well. Add olive oil, vinegar and seasonings and mix some more. Serve.

    Jello Salad (My this feels lame ... are you sure you want it?)

    1 large package Jell-o (I used Orange flavor)
    1 or 2 single package of plain gelatine (how firm do you like it?)
    1 small can Mandarian oranges (10 oz, I think...)
    1 container of yogurt (I used vanilla when I discovered I didn't have orange flavor -- big surprise. )
    ~ 10 ice cubes
    2 cups boiling water
    ~ 1/2 cup chilled water

    Put tea kettle on to boil. Open the can of Mandarian oranges, separate the juice from the fruit. Place both in freezer.

    Pour the Jell-o and gelatin into a large bowl. When water boils, pour 2 cups into the bowl; stir ~ 4 minutes until all gelatin is thoroughly mixed and slightly frothy. Remove the juice from the freezer and float ice cube in it till it measures 1 cup. Mix in the gelatine froth until fully melted. Fill the 1 cup measure with ice cubes, top off with chilled water to reach a full cup. Mix until ice is fully melted. Pour off ~ 1 and 1/2 cups of chilled mixture into another bowl. Put chilled orange slices in the gelatine mixture and refrigerate. (Note: this is probably starting to gel already.)

    Whip the separated gelatine with the yogurt. When the fruited gelatine is stable enough to hold it, layer the yougurt/jell-o layer on top. Complete chilling. Best if cooled overnight before serving.

    Chicken liver

    Today, I bought some fresh chicken liver. I wonder if anyone has a good recipe for it - or should I just spoil Fister and Pjevs?

    Chicken and Noodles

    I wasn't feeling well today and was hungry so instead of going somewhere to get some Chicken and Noodles I made some of my own. And this is the best I have ever made!

    This is what I did.

    1 small can of chicken with broth
    1 can of chicken broth
    1 can of cream of chicken soup
    1 can of sliced carrots (with juice)
    favorite kind of noodles
    2 tsps of cornstarch
    Add the broth and soup and mix together. Add Carrots and chicken with juice/broth. Add the cornstarch. Heat through.

    I like to serve them over mashed potatoes with fresh baked rolls.

    I didn't bring any home!

    I can't believe it has been 3 years since I made these!
    I made them again tonite and they were a huge hit!
    This time I used the Campbell's Cream of Chicken/Mushroom (that is mixed together) and no onion.
    Still got rave reviews.
