My son makes a great Meat Loaf. I just hope I got this all right. I was asleep the other night when he gave me the recipe. LOL



1 lb. Hamburger
1 lb. Bulk Sausage
2 T. Mustard
3/4 C. Ketchup
1 Egg
1/2 t. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 t. Soy Sauce
8 Crackers
1 can Hunts Stewed Tomatoes
5 Sticks of Celery
1 whole Onion - Diced
1 T. Butter
1/2 t. Parsley
1/2 t. Italian Seasoning
1/2 t. Basil
3 cloves Garlic - Diced

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients well. Shape into a loaf. Apply a thin layer of ketchup on the top of the loaf. Place in small roasting pan. Add 1 can of chicken broth and 1 can of water to roasting pan and cover. Bake about 1 hour at 350. If desired, add potatoes and carrots the last 20 minutes of cook time.

Ever have a get together and can't think what to serve? This is one of those things that can be thrown together really fast and it's kind of easy. If you have a little notice you can chop the veggies the night before. The dip it self should be refrigerated over night, but you can serve it the same day.


1 16oz. container of Plain Yogurt
1 original pkg. Hidden Valley Dressing Mix(powdered form)
1 tablespoon Parsley Flakes

Mix all ingredients well. Let sit, covered, overnight in the fridge

Veggies you can use:
Bell Peppers
Cherry Tomatoes
Green Onions

This is also great with chips and corn chips.

Does anyone have mason canning jars sitting around doing nothing but collecting dust? I have several of the blue ones that my hubby kept buying at rummage sales. He would bring them home and put them in a box in the barn. One day I brought them in, washed them and put my button collection in them. They have labels on them as to what color they are. Some of the buttons are my mom's and some are from my Great Aunt Peggy and some are mine I have picked up here and there. I proudly put them on a shelf to show off. Most of the jars my hubby gave less than 1.00 for at the rummage sales. Don't they look nice holding all my buttons instead of dust?

Lisa and Lana are the hosts for Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays. They have some really great recipes. You should go check these 2 out!

Last fall I was looking for a new way to roast chicken. So I went looking on the internet to find a recipe. I went to one of my favorite places, Kraft Kitchens, and found this great recipe. And boy is it good!!!


Greek Style Lemon Roast Chicken


1 whole roasting chicken (3-1/2 lb.)
salt and black pepper
1 medium lemon, washed, halved
1/2 cup KRAFT Greek Vinaigrette Dressing


PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper. Place in a 13x9-inch baking dish.

SQUEEZE the juice from lemon and mix with dressing in a small bowl. Place the squeezed lemon halves inside the cavity of chicken. Drizzle dressing mixture over chicken. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of one of the chicken's thighs.

BAKE 1-1/2 hours or until chicken is cooked through (reaches an internal temperature of 180°F), basting occasionally.

Their serving suggestions is a Green Salad and a Whole Wheat Roll. I had the green salad, I also got that from the Kraft Kitchens. This also was very good!!!



10 cups torn romaine lettuce
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 small zucchini, sliced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
3/4 cup KRAFT Light House Italian Dressing

This past Friday was my sons 40th birthday. He said he didn't want anything for his birthday, but I got him his favorite candy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Plus he requested a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. So I got busy and made him one. I got this recipe from my mom years ago. Have made lots and lots of them over the years. There was some trial and error, but I finally have it all down pat now.



2 ½ C. Flour
2 ½ teas. Baking Powder
1 teas. Salt
2 sticks of butter/margarine
1 ½ C. White Sugar
2 Eggs
1 C. Milk
1 teas. Vanilla
1 Can of Crushed Pineapple
2 C. Brown Sugar, maybe less, maybe more

In large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, 1 stick of butter/margarine, white sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix all together well. Set aside for now.


In sauce pan melt 1 stick of butter/margarine. Pour this into a 9 X 11 cake pan, making sure you cover the bottom of the cake pan well.

Place Brown Sugar over bottom of cake pan, spreading it out and covering the bottom of the cake pan.

Pour Crushed Pineapple with juice in cake pan, covering the bottom of the cake pan. If needed you could use another can of pineapple.

Pour cake batter over pineapple, covering evenly.

Bake at 350 until done.

Run a butter knife around the edges of the cake, this losens the cake from the sides of the cake pan. Dump cake onto a flat platter or plate. DO NOT LET THE CAKE COOL, DUMP OUT WHILE IT’S STILL HOT.

I dump my cake onto one of those sliver trays you use around the hoildays. It works pretty well. I also put some wax paper on the bottom before dumping the cake. Makes for an easier clean up. Just trim the was paper and eat!!

Foodie Friday is going on over at Gollum's place, Designs by Gollum. Got a great recipe to share, need one for supper, or just looking around? Hop over to Gollum's place and check out all the great recipes. This also my first posting for Foodie Friday!

This is a recipe my mom had in her personal recipe book. I got this book when she passed away. It was falling apart, the pages were turning brown, and some of the pages were falling out. I have since then turned this into a scrapbook. All mom's recipes, clippings, little booklets and everything else she had in there are preserved in this scrapbook.

This is one of the recipes that was in her recipe book. I tried it and it turned out really good. But I can't for the life of me figure out why it's called strawberry salad!


2 boxes Strawberry Jell-o
1 ¾ C. Hot Water
2 boxes Frozen Strawberries
1 small can Crushed Pineapple (undrained)
Mix jell-o according to package directions. Thaw Strawberries. Mix strawberries and pineapple into jell-o, stirring well. Put in fridge to set.
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 Eggs
½ C. Sugar
1 8oz. Cool Whip
In a saucepan mix lemon juice, eggs and sugar. Cook over low heat until it thickens. Cool mixture, then add Cool Whip. Top Strawberry Jell-o mixture.

My hubby is a rummager, hard core! He hits the rummage sales early in the morning! He brings home lots of goodies. Last week he brought home this bird cage.

As soon as I saw it, I wanted to put it in my garden. I'm always looking for things to put in my garden. Not for the birds, but to look pretty! I tried it in the garden, but it is kind of top heavy, and wouldn't sit straight. So I moved it to the deck. Added a pretty pot, which came from the rummage sale, go some pretty flowers and ribbon and this is the result!

So what do you think, cute! Well, I think it's cute anyway! My hubby likes it too. And since it's so top heavy, even more since I put the pot in it, I've moved it to a corner and wired it to the deck. You can't see the wire. But now the wind won't knock it down.

This is a recipe I got from Paula Dean's book "Kitchen Classics". This book has lots of great recipes in it. I've tried several of them. This one is delicious!! Although at the time I didn't have any buttermilk. So went looking on the internet for substitutes and found this place called Recipe Zaar they had a great one.

After 5 minutes, mix together well and use as buttermilk in any recipe!

I thought I would put my recipe for Pumpkin Pie up today. I must confess the recipe is actually off the can of Libby Pumpkin that I use. I am also not great at making pie crust, actually I suck at it, so I use bought pie crusts. And everyone usually eats the pie and there is never any left, so I guess it works for us.


4 Eggs
1 – 29 oz. can Pumpkin
1 ½ C. Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ginger
½ teaspoon Cloves
2 – 13 oz. cans Evaporated Milk
4 – 9 inch Pie Shells

In a large bowl, mix all the above ingredients. Pour into unbaked pie shells. Sprinkle tops with Cinnamon. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 and bake another 45 minutes.

When knife is inserted in center and comes out clean, remove pies and cool.

We have a flea market that runs all year here. I love shopping there! I usually have no idea what I'm looking for when I first walk in the door. But I usually find something I like. I collect Beenie Babies. I found Pinky the Flamingo for $1.00. Isn't she cute!

I also read lots so am always looking for books and bookmarks. I found this pretty pink lace bookmark and this great pink book. Do you see a pattern here, Pink! The bookmark was $1.00 and the book was .50

I also found this Pyrex Bowl. It's kind of little, but it gets used for small things. The bowl was $2.00

All the items listed above are being used. Pinky sits on my desk, have read the book and use the bookmark all the time. As for the bowl, we use it to hold chips, cereal, and other small items.

Lisa is hosting the meme, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Want to find some scrumptious recipes? Go check out all the other folks who have participated. I made this recipe a few weeks ago. It's really yummy, I got it out of Paula Deen's Kitchen Classics book. It is on page 166 under desserts. As we don't have fresh peaches here yet, I used a can of sliced peaches. But you could use fresh peaches. You can also find this recipe at Paula Deen's web site. Just click on her name and you will go right there.


8 Tablespoons Butter
1 C. Sugar
¾ C. self-rising flour
¾ C. Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in deep baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix sugar and flour; add milk slowly to prevent lumping. Pour over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. (see syrup below) Still do not stir; batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.


Peel and pit 2 C. of fresh peaches. Place in a medium size pan and add 1 C. of water and 1 C. of sugar. Bring mixture to a boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir often, making sure all the sugar melts. (This can be substituted for a 28 oz. can of sliced peaches, if desired)

This is a recipe my mom had in her recipe book. I remember making these when I was a child. It was lots of fun, but messy. Mom would pop up this really huge pan of popcorn and us kids would get to roll the popcorn balls. We probably ate more than we rolled, but it was loads of fun!!


1 C. White Corn Syrup
1 C. Brown Sugar
½ C. Water
1 teaspoon Vinegar
2 Tablespoon Butter
2 Qt. of Popped Popcorn

You will need the regular popcorn. The kind you have to pop in a pan with oil. The Microwave kind doesn’t work very well. At least for my recipe. You will need to pop enough popcorn to get 2 Quarts.

Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, water, vinegar, and butter in a medium size pan. Cook as slow speed until consistency is thick and sticky. Let cool. Pour over popcorn in a large bowl. Rub your hands generously with butter and start making balls. If desired you can wrap them in plastic wrap and tie the ends with pretty yarn or ribbon as gifts. I’m not sure of the yield, but it should be around 10 to 12 balls.
