The ultimate in comfort food!
This is a beef dish commonly called "Shepherd's Pie" in the United States, however, the correct name is Cottage Pie. What's the difference? Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb and Cottage Pie is made with beef.
If you have been looking for an easy, fast, and delicious casserole... Look no further!!! This Taco Casserole is always a huge hit with our family and we very rarely have leftovers. My 14 year old son, Devon, requested this for dinner tonight and he had 2 giant servings!
This is not your typical taco salad... it is so addicting! My husband makes this for us and we devour it. I have never liked Catalina salad dressing (and I still don't) but you MUST drizzle Catalina over this salad (I top it with salsa and Catalina) HOLY CRAP ... The taste is incredible! It's always a family hit and we never have leftovers. Our 18 month old eats all of his serving too!
5 cups chopped seedless watermelon (1 1/4 pounds)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup silver tequila
8 (1/3-cup) ice pop molds and 8 wooden sticks
Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup, pressing on and then discarding solids. Skim off any foam, then pour into molds. Freeze 30 minutes. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, about 24 hours.
1 cup unsalted butter, plus additional for greasing pan
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
16 ounces confectioners' (powdered) sugar
Butter the bottom and sides of an 8- x 8-inch pan, then line with parchment paper. (The butter helps the paper stick to the pan.) Lightly butter the top of the parchment paper, as well. Combine the 1 cup butter and peanut butter in a large microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on full power for 2 minutes. Carefully remove from the microwave, stir, then microwave on full power for an additional 2 minutes.
Remove the bowl from the microwave. Carefully stir in the vanilla and confectioners' sugar with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until evenly combined. The mixture may become a little crumbly at first, but continue to stir until the ingredients are smooth and a nice "dough" forms.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer, pushing to fill the corners. Place an additional square piece of parchment paper directly on the surface of the fudge. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Use a large knife to cut into 1-inch cubes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Yield: 64 1-inch pieces
Combine chicken and enchilada sauce in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Shred chicken in the sauce. Cut cream cheese into cubes and stir into the crock pot along with the shredded cheese and mix well. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is blended and cheese is melted.
Makes approximately 28 servings.
Alcoholic coffee bites!
1/2 cup cold water
1 3/4 cups strong coffee, hot,
8T French Roast with 2 cups water.
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
3 packages of unflavored gelatin
3T Kahlua or other coffee liquor
8-inch x 8-inch glass baking pan
Make the coffee the way you normally would at home. The goal is to wind up with 1 3/4 cups of strong coffee. Used approximately 8T French Roast to 2 cups of water. Put the water in a large bowl. Toss in the gelatin. Give it a stir to mix. It should immediately start to thicken and suck up the water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes. Add the hot, brewed coffee to the gelatin. Whisk it gently, and pour in condensed milk. Mix to combine, avoiding making bubbles. Add The Kahlua, and mix again. Pour into a glass pan. No need to grease. Place in refrigerator and allow to set for several hours. Slice them into squares (or cut them into shapes with little cookie cutters) and serve.
