Really Easy CrockPot Beef Stew
stew meat (I use about 2 lbs.) carrots (I use a small bag of "baby" carrots) celery (about 3 stalks, cut into 1-inch hunks) onion (one medium yellow onion cut into hunks, or a package of small frozen pearl onions) cubed potatoes (3 - 4 medium potatoes pared and cut into cubes) 1/2 cup water, with 1 beef bullion cube dissolved 1 bay leaf Few dashes of garlic powder 1 or 2 cans condensed tomato soup, (depending on how much meat and veggies you use)
Throw it all in the slow cooker and cook all day! This is really good and doesn't taste like tomato soup when it is finished.. You don't even have to brown the meat, just cook for a least 8 hours, will hold longer than that.
HERBED TURKEY and WILD RICE CASSEROLE
6 slices bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces 1 pound turkey tenderloin, cut into 3/4-inch pieces 1 med. onion, chopped 1 med. sliced carrot 1 med. stalk chopped celery 2 cans chicken broth 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup 1/4 t marjoram 1/4 t oregano 1 1/4 cups uncooked wild rice cook bacon till crisp, remove from skillet, drain, using 1 T bacon drippings, add turkey, onion, carrot, and celery cook 3 to 4 minutes put in slow cooker with broth, soup, herbs, bacon and wild rice cook on low setting 6 to 7 hours, until rice is tender and liquid absorbed._______________________________________
3 lbs. ground beef 1 large onion 1 large bell pepper 1 pack hot chili powder mix 3 cans beans (1 - Northern Beans, 1 - Pinto Beans, 1 - Black Beans) 1 can Rotel (chopped tomatoes with mild green chilies) 1 med. can tomato paste 2 cups water
Brown meat, onion, and pepper together. Then add hot chili powder mix. (I added extra since it was so much meat.) Add the remaining ingredients to the cooked meat mixture. I let it cook for a couple of hours in the crockpot.
Nice if served with sour cream and grated cheddar cheese.
This recipe was made for a work function and serves 12. It is suitable for adjustments. I also cook it on the stove (low - med heat) with 1 lb. meat and 1 can pinto beans with all other ingredients adjusted. You will need more water depending on how long you let it simmer. The great thing about chili is that you can add more or less of ingredients depending on how spicy, meaty, tomatoey, etc that you like it. If I have fresh tomatoes on hand, I will cut them up instead of using the Rotel; sometimes I have 4 oz. cans of mild green chilies to throw in when using my own fresh tomatoes. You can also substitute refried beans or chili starter Bush's beans for a regular can of beans. Have fun experimenting._______________________________________
1 to 1 1/2 pounds hamburger 2 - 15oz cans tomato sauce, rinse cans out with 1/2 water (if you would like you can add 1 can of diced tomatoes) 1 medium onion, diced (more if desired) 1 package chili seasoning, any brand 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/4 cup milk 1 cup broken up spaghetti noodles (cook until 1/2 done) (or any kind of noodle you like) Brown meat in fry pan with onion and 1/2 package of chili seasoning, fry until just a wee bit crisp, drain off fat. In medium to large pot (or slow cooker) put meat mixture, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes if using, rest of chili seasoning, chili powder, milk and cooked noodles. Bring to boil, then turn down to simmer for however long you like or however thick you want it to boil down to. (If you are going to put this in a slow cooker to cook all day you do not have to bring it to a boil first)_______________________________________
Kelly's Hot Artichoke Dip
(I got this recipe from a friend, but added a lot more cheese than actually called for!)
1 cup of mayonaise (or the small jar) 1 can of artichoke hearts in water (not marinated) 2 cups of grated mozzerella cheese (you can buy the pre-shredded cheese in a bag) 1 cup of grated romano cheese (NOT the powdered kind!)
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Chop artichoke hearts. Dump all ingredients into an oven-safe bowl and mix thoroughly. You may also add some crushed garlic, too. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until bubbly. Serve with sliced baguettes or crackers! It will go fast!_______________________________________
Our Favorite Meatloaf
1 egg 1 cup quick oats 1/3 cup catsup 1/4 cup chopped onion 2 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce 2 tsp. seasoned salt 1/2 tsp. pepper 2 lbs. ground beef
Beat egg slightly; stir in other ingredients, except beef. Mix well. Add ground beef and mix. Pat mixture into a 9x 5 x3 inch loaf pan. Bake in a 325* oven about 1 hour.
P.S. I usually make two smaller loaves out of this so it will cook faster.
The recipe was shown by the chef at the Waldorf Astoria and he prepared this for a cooking Olympics. It's so simple you may not want to think it's a legitimate cheesecake effort, but give it a try.
Crust: (do this first) 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup melted butter
Melt butter slowly in a pot on the stove. Remove from heat. Mix dry ingredients and stir them into the melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Press evenly into a pie shell and chill. (Using the back of a soup spoon helps the spreading process a bit.)
Filling: 12 oz. soft cream cheese 2/3 c. sugar Mix well. You can probably do it by hand, but I like to use an electric mixer.
Add to cream cheese/sugar mixture and mix thoroughly: 2 eggs grated rind of 1 lemon 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla (or to taste)
Pour into chilled crust and bake at 350 until sheen is gone and it jiggles evenly. This is approximately 35 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes. Then spread topping gently over the top and bake 5 minutes longer.
Topping: 1 cup sour cream 2 tablespoons sugar 1 or 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla
If you have leftovers, freeze the slices and pop them out for a quick dessert._______________________________________
If you have leftovers, make Frito pie - spoon the chili over Frito's corn chips and top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Coors Light Chili
2 lb ground beef or sausage 1/2 cup diced onion 1 14-1/2 oz can chopped tomatoes with liquid 1 14 oz (?) can tomato juice 1 14 oz (?) can chili beans, with liquid 1/4 to 1/2 cup chili powder, depending on taste 1 T paprika 1 tsp cumin 1 T sugar 1 to 3 tsp red pepper, depending on taste 1 can Coors Light (or other beer) salt and pepper to taste
Brown the meat with the onions. Drain off any fat. Add the tomato juice, chopped tomatoes and chili beans. Add spices and sugar, going easy on the chili powder and red pepper until you've had a chance to taste it. Allow to come to a low boil. Add the beer, allow to boil, and taste again to re-season if necessary. This, of course, can be made without the beer, but you may need to add water or additional tomato juice if the soup is too thick. Serve with celery spread with peanut butter (don't ask me why - it's just good!)._______________________________________
Hint: if you cook it over night and don't like the smell of food cooking while you sleep, put it in the garage
Radybug's Crock Pot Roast
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix 1 pkg Italian Dressing Mix 1 pkg Brown Gravy Mix 1 roast to fit in crock pot

This chili is for meat lovers, and it is delicious!
olive oil 3 pounds chuck roast -- cut into 1" cubes 3 onions -- minced 5 cloves garlic -- minced 1/4 cup chili powder 1 teaspoon oregano 2 teaspoons cumin 2 tb masa harina 1 jalapeno peppers -- minced cheddar cheese -- shredded
When preparing the meat, remove as much fat as possible, as it seems to dull the delicate flavors of this chili. Heat olive oil to smoking in a heavy kettle and add meat. Cook until meat is light colored. Add onions and garlic. Add 2-3 cups water to cover and mix. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 1 hour.
Add Chili powder, oregano, cumin and salt; cook slowly for 1 hour more, stirring occasionally. You may want to adjust the seasonings after a half hour.
Stir masa harina into 1/4 cup of cold water. Add to chili. Add jalapeno peppers. Continue to cook until the chili thickens, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid sticking.
Note: Masa Harina, a finely ground white cornmeal, is available in the Mexican section of many supermarkets, but coarse cornmeal, ground in a blender or food processor for several minutes can be substituted.

It is wonderful served immediately, at room temperature, or even cold, but seems to lose some of it's flavor edge on reheating. _______________________________________

3 packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (regular size) 4 packages Buddig's (any brand will do) Dried Beef 2 Tablespoons (more or less to your taste) Horseradish Sauce Crackers
Cut up the dried beef into small pieces, add the room temperature cream cheese, then add the horseradish sauce and mix. This is easiest to mix with your bare hands. Form into any shape you want and serve. Serve with crackers of any kind.
1 pound Beef franks, cut into 1 inch pieces 1 cup Ketchup 1/2 cup bourbon or whiskey 1/3 cup brown sugar
Mix all ingredients together. Pour into casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly hot. I've never tried it but I'm sure you could keep them hot in a crockpot. This is a very tasty recipe and easy too!!
Anne's Baked Eggs
2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour, pinch of salt, 1/2 stick Butter(works and tastes better than Margarine), frozen strawberries, confectionary sugar. Melt butter in a pie tin on top of stove. Set aside. Beat eggs milk flour and salt together. Pour in pie tin. Bake at 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cut into pie shape. Set on serving plates. Cover with Thawed strawberries and Confectionary sugar. Serve. I usually end up making 2 or 3 batches for the family. ==You can also pour a little amarretto over eggs before adding strawberries and confectionary sugar.
