There are a few recipes that are your old stand-bys but nice to have around such as:
- fantasy fudge, nice for the holiday season
- marshmallow potatoes, always a favorite on the Thanksgiving table
- Victoria's peppermint cocoa, yummy winter warmer-uper
Here are just few that I tried on my family:
- Taffy Apple Salad, oh, so yummy!!!
- Beef and Noodles, new twist but they loved it.
- Peppers and Eggs, by my hubby's request and he isn't a breakfast food eater.
- BBQ Pork Chops, we love anything with BBQ sauce
However, there are many more that I'm excited to try yet:
- Boston roast
- Chicken casserole
- Tuna casserole
- cheeseburger casserole
- Swedish meatballs
- mushroom pork chops
- sausage bread
- chocolate Italian cookies, is most intriguing because of one of the ingredients in the mix. I have never heard of black pepper in cookies? I really want to try these just once at least and see how they go over in my house.
- Many more yummy recipes
