Apple Raisin Cobbler

Apple Raisin CobblerThis is so quick and easy to make and perfect for breakfast. My Valentine had this for his breakfast! Very little added sugar, salt & fat. In fact, you could cut back on all three without poor results. Amazingly rich! Yes, you must love raisins! This old recipe is taken from my Mother’s favorites. Charlotte, one of Mother’s best friends, put this together. You might have enjoyed Charlotte’s Pineapple Cream Angel Food Cake, here. Now another terrific recipe … both must haves.

A recipe so easy you might believe it can’t pass as a company dessert. Just know these ladies were into classy. Everything they cooked was perfect for guests. Enjoy!

Chicken Divan Pie

Chicken Divan PieWhat do you do when you have leftover cooked chicken and an overabundance of broccoli? You make this delicious pie. And because it was a pasta Sunday I added egg noodles. Absolutely delicious. We’ll be making this one again soon. Change up the pasta, add turkey or tuna instead of chicken and substitute cottage cheese for ricotta. I guarantee this recipe will work with substitutions. This is a great make ahead meal that can easily be frozen after baking for another day.

There’s just a bit of cooking for the meat filling before baking. This is just one of those dishes I have fun with … often preparing differently each time. Make it your own … fill with your favorites.

Lasagna Rolls

Lasagna Rolls

How can the same ingredients arranged differently give a different taste! But a delicious taste! I call this a neat and tidy lasagna. Servings are pretty obvious with each roll as one. Stuff with a meat filling for your company and vegetarian for yourself. Or make each roll guest specific. That sounds like a lot of work but it isn’t. Yep, I’ll admit a bit messy when preparing. Bake all together in the same dish. OK some vegetarians may not go for that. Put this recipe together with your own pasta sauce and pesto or select the very best pre-made. The rest is just assembling. Recipe coming soon!

If you haven’t tried my sauce recipes or my pesto here are the links. I’ve cooked every recipe with love.
