Does anyone know how to make Baked Mac & Cheese?
Also Baked Spaghetti?
I have eaten both of these, but never knew how to make it myself! Recipes Please? TIA
Two really easy dishes!

I make really old-fashioned comfort food mac and cheese the way my mother made it when I was a child.......with Velveeta!!! For a big ole pan of it, cook a lb. of macaroni as directed on the package. While it's cooking, cut up 1/2 of a big package of Velveeta into chunks (about 1 inch). When the macaroni's done and still hot, mix the "cheese" into the hot macaroni, add a splash of milk (or cream if you're feeling decadent)and mix it up. Put into a baking pan-I use an old pyrex deep dish casserole dish. Top with a package of pre-shredded cheddar cheese, whatever kind you like, I usually use the triple cheddar mix. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or til the cheese on top is melted and browned. Sometimes for a one-dish meal, I add diced ham or browned ground beef in with the mix.

Baked Spaghetti-you can do it with leftover spaghetti and sauce as someone else said.....just mix the sauce with the spaghetti, put in a casserole dish and top with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese and bake. I make it for the first time around instead of using leftovers, usually, and I don't usually use spaghetti. I make baked ziti most of the time, but you really can use whatever kind of pasta you have around the house. Cook the pasta, add your favorite sauce, either home-made or jarred. I always put ground beef in this, so brown your ground beef and add to the sauce. Mix it all up well so the pasta is coated. I top with a layer of shredded (not the powdery stuff in a can, fresh shredded) parmesan and then a layer of shredded mozzarella. Bake til the cheese is melty and brown. Dang, I might have to make baked ziti this weekend, that sounds good!:)

Both of these dishes are great for working folks. They travel well for lunch at the office (just pop it in the microwave) and are easy to reheat for quick weeknight dinners. I tend to cook up a batch of a couple of things on the weekend so I have lunches and dinners for both of us for the week.

I have also rediscovered my crock-pot and do crock-pot dinners on weeknights......nice to come home from work and dinner is ready to put on the plates!

Not a healthy dish by any means, but well worth the calories and carbs as a holiday treat IMO:
Grandma's Oyster Dressing
Stale bread
Butter (real butter, no substitutes)
Fresh oysters (the jarred kind in liquid, not canned, and not in the shell)
Use stick of butter and one small can of oysters per loaf of bread. Melt butter in a large saucepan along with the liquid from the oysters. If the oysters are large, cup up with kitchen scissors. Add to the liquid and cook til the oysters are "ruffly" around the edges. Rinse the jars with about 1/2 jar of water each and add to the pot.
Pour onto torn up bread crumbs and let cool a little, til you can handle it with your bare hands. Mix well, making sure all the bread is moistened. Don't make it too wet or it will be heavy when done.
Stuff into turkey tightly. You can also cook it outside the turkey, but if you plan to do this, add a small amount of broth (preferably made by boiling the turkey giblets) to the stuffing for flavor. Dressing cooked outside the turkey should be packed tightly in a glass casserole dish and covered VERY tightly with aluminum foil before baking. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't get too done.
Lots of fat and calories in this, but for a once or twice a year treat, well worth it, IMO!

I also made a small banana pudding as there were only 3 bananas here, but I changed up the ingredients from what I usually use.

BANANA PUDDING

1 15 oz box JELL-O Sugar Free - Fat Free Reduced Calorie Pudding
1 Box Publix Vanilla Wafers (much cheaper than the Nilla Vanilla Wafers)
3 Ripe Bananas

1. Follow Jell-o pkg directions. Add 3 cups cold milk. Whisk stirring at least thouroughly enough to completely pudding mix and milk (at least 2 minutes). Pudding will soft-set in 5 minutes.

2. Line bottom layer with vanilla wafers. Add layer bananas. Add layer of pudding.

3. Repeat steps layering another layer wafers and bananas. I used some of my Fat-Free Cool Whip mixed into my top layer of pudding.

4. Garnish top of pudding in any way you like. I added 6 in the middle as a circle. I lined the bowl to frame the top outside of the pudding with whole cookies. I crush remaining cookies and sprinkled over top, just to make it look pretty.

* I think I may sprinkle cinnamon/sugar in the morning over the top only because I saw it in the recipe the Apron Representative gave to me.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXX

Years ago I used the Old Time Vanilla Pudding (Non-Instant), the kind you used to have to stir and stir and use a double-boiler for. I remember garnishing it with Meringue, about the only time I ever remember making meringue. This was many moons ago. I got the recipe off of the old Original Nilla Vanilla wafer box.

I made it for my mother's Sunday School Class, and I also made Potato Salad. Those ladies scarved up my food like some ravenous wolves, but really loved the banana pudding and exclaimed over it.. I can't find that recipe, but I think I could make it again. I just think faster is better most of the time.

I used a crystal bowl I had received at my wedding shower and with the meringue on top, it was really beautiful. That was in my old house in Tampa. I was quite younger and had a little bit more of a hot temper back then. One of my cabinets wouldn't shut and I kicked it shut...yeah, you know it. I shattered that beautiful crystal bowl to pieces. That's what I got for throwing a hissy fit.

p.s. If anyone has that old recipe, would appreciate if you'd post it.

would like to share a recipe I received from the lady who does the Apron recipes and gives out samples.

STRAWBERRT PANZANELLA

INGREDIENTS

1 (15-oz) Bakery angel food cake, coarsely chopped
16 oz fresh strawberries, quartered
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
2 tablespoons white balsamic glaze, divided
Butter Cooking Spray

PREP

Preheat oven to 400F.
Cut angel food cake into 1-inch cubes (6 cups)
Quarter strawberries, chop mint

STEPS

1. Combine strawberries, cinnamon sugar, and 1 tablespoon glaze until blended. Let stand 10-15 minutes or until juices appear.

2. Place cake pieces on baking sheet and coat with spray; bake 10-12 minutes or until toasted.

3. Combine all ingredients (including remaining 1 tablespoon glaze); toss gently and serve.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx

I have to give the Aprons Sample Lady credit where credit is due. Her samples above were excellent!

I was not as elaborate as she was. I used diet whatever I could, but I used the same Angel Food Cake she used from the Bakery. It boasted 0 Transfat. I also substituted 1% Milk. I usually use skim or fat-free, but I had a little 1% that I wanted to finish using because it was open. I cut mine up in a normal slice and let the juice do its work. She used the smaller chopped pieces to fit into the sample cups.

Both were good in my book, but if anyone was serving at a party I would say hers is the one I'd want to use.

We use a sauce called Dale Sauce but don't know if all can find it.
The kids here love Dale Sauce. Here's a recipe for creamed corn that I sort of stole from another thread. It's a big hit here

3 cans whole kernel corn (drained)
8 oz cream cheese (room temp)
6 TBS butter.

Mix the cream cheese and butter in a pan, add the corn. Heat and stir until well-blended and heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste. The family here loves this and it's so easy to make.

Yukkers ! I would never ever eat Genetically Modified Foods.

I much prefer eggs from my free roaming hens- and my own home made toated bread. Yeppers I love 2 soft boiled eggs and soldiers to dip in the yolk.

Before embarking upon your new found delights it might behoove you to educate yourself on GM food - failure to do so will simply cause you to stay at your 425 pound weight.

' What are some of the criticisms against

GM foods?

Environmental activists, religious organizations, public interest groups, professional associations and other scientists and government officials have all raised concerns about GM foods, and criticized agribusiness for pursuing profit without concern for potential hazards, and the government for failing to exercise adequate regulatory oversight. It seems that everyone has a strong opinion about GM foods. Even the Vatican19 and the Prince of Wales20 have expressed their opinions. Most concerns about GM foods fall into three categories: environmental hazards, human health risks, and economic concerns.'

Well we know for sure she will not appear as Doug who serves Burgers at Red Robin since Doug is nothing more than a photo shopped pic of Jess appearing in the commercial.

LOL went there for fish & chips today - No sign of Doug BUT we did get a loud mouthed waitress who could have been impostering the Orlando Kid Killer since she served up drinks on her low slung pendulous waist high tatties.

Don't they teach nutrition out in sunny Cali? Adding drinks won't cancel out the grease/fat/salt Besides, their food basically is fast food served in a sit-down atmosphere.

After another round of Prednisone(for the 12 month in a row), I have to do something about my weight. I've been told by several Docs that it's next to impossible to lose weight while on it so I have to find some low fat alternatives.

Low fat is hard. I'm diabetic and so have to limit carbs, but I find limiting fats MUCH harder. I don't enjoy many of the low-fat substitutions (like ground turkey) so I eat mostly chicken, turkey and lean beef, but I've found that I'd rather do without some things than substitute, like burgers. Burgers at our house are a very rare event.:( Do you like salmon? I make salmon patties fairly often and we love them.

If you would read your own post, aren't you the one who just had fish and chips at Red Robin? Oh, yes, people should listen to you. That's at least 1,200 and high, high fat. You are very bad at math, all of you.

At my latest, I have never been above a 40 DD. Looks like the old hags here are just jealous that they are over 50 and have health issues like High Cholesterol, High Blood Sugar (Diabetes), Osteopenia,
Multiple fractures, Weight Gain due to medications (steroids), husbands who only come home to eat, and the only kids they have are their dogs.

Do you think your copy and paste job is impressive? If you will notice, none of these recipes are from me. The one with the angel food cake is from Tribe Mom. She tried to post something healthy, but it is still high in carbs.

You ladies seem to know nothing about nutrition. Let me see other recipes I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. Maybe today it will be the Hobo Bag, something even a homeless person would probably refuse. One step above hamburger helper which is not something I'd touch either.

Keep it fresh. Keep it organic.

I've never used food stamps. I don't think I've ever qualified for food stamps.
I have a question though. Do places like Sam's or Costco take food stamps?
I always thought it was AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) but now I see that some disabled people get them as well. It's usually only between $50.00 and $100.00 a month. It's not like it's actually enough to live on.

Well, I gotta run. I remember I promised to do something for someone.

I am amazed at what passes for food on this thread. I haven't found one recipe I would make or eat. Here's another yucky recipe. I guess these 60 and 70 year old chefs suffered through the Great Depression and are like goats (will eat anything).

Will you please post the recipe for that quiche?
Yes I will...And I use sweet potatoes but Yams would be alright.

2 cups milk
4 eggs
3/4 cup bisquick baking mix ( I use the heart healthy brand)
1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (10 oz) pk of broccoli defrosted and drained..( or cut up fresh broccoli and steam first)
( also can use 1 cup of ham) I sometimes use turkey bacon)
8 oz. Shredded Cheddar cheese.( also top it off with shredded provolone)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In large bowl. beat in milk, eggs, bisquick baking mix,butter, and parmesan cheese. The mix will be lumpy
Stir in the broccoli,(ham, or other), cheese..

After mashing the sweet potatoes or (I use simply me mashed sweet potatoes that I get at Meijer's) Place in lightly oiled pan.. Then pour the mixture on top of the sweet potatoes. then I top it with either provolone or mexican grated cheese, and bake for 50 minutes, and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. It is great served with fruit.

I love the leftovers since it is just me, for breakfast. or lunch, the next day.

I'm a picky eater. Let's go over the list of foods I do not eat.

I do not eat PORK.

I do not eat sweet potatoes, do not eat black-eyed beans or most kinds of beans.

I do not eat white flour.

I do not eat refined sugar.

I do no drink anything but water, occasional coffee mostly wintertime, tea, milk or diluted juice.

I use EVOO instead of the horrible things you cook your food in.

I do eat grilled steak, lobster, fresh fish, organic chicken.

Those Starbuck's refreshers are good frozen like a slush.

Thanks for inspiring me to lose weight. Now, try to lose some yourself.

You're the one who posted about your DIABETES and HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA which means high blood sugar and high cholesterol. You also posted about how your mom was the Fry Daddy Queen, your fast food diet, etc. Remember?
You are just angry because you are busted.

You probably even deep fry your turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas for you and the dogs. God knows your kids (if you have any) don't come home.

Go bath your dogs. They are starting to smell. lmao
