Now that everyone has eaten, and the dishes are washed I’m going to share some of the recipes from our Easter meal.

Baked Beans

1 large can of pork and beans

1/4 cup of molasses

A handful of brown sugar

1/2 pound of bacon, cut into small pieces and fry it

After cooking the bacon mix it in a small roaster with the beans, molasses, and brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

East to make and delicious!

Potato Salad

6 potatoes, boiled, peeled, and diced

3 stalks of celery, chopped

1/2 of a red onion, chopped

6 eggs, chopped

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise

Mix the potatoes, celery, onion, and eggs in a large bowl. In a medium sized bowl, mix the mustard, vinegar, pepper, and mayonnaise with a whisk. Pour the sauce over the potato mixture. Chill for at least an hour then serve.


Cashew Cookie Nests

1/2 package of chow mein noodles

1 small can of cashews

1 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips

1 12 oz bag of butterscotch chips

2 bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs

Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a double boiler. Stir in the chow mein noodles and cashews. Mix until the noodles and cashews are coated with chocolate.  Scoop tablespoon size blobs onto a cookie sheet, either lined with parchment paper or coated with nonstick cooking spray. Place three eggs each nests. Refrigerate until set.

These cookies are a staple at our house.

Creamy Jello Dessert

1 small box of gelatin, you can use any flavor, we prefer lime.

1 package of cream cheese, softened

1 cup of boiling water

1 8 oz package of Cool Whip

1 small can of crushed pineapple, drained really well.

1 cup of lemon-lime soda, if using orange, or strawberry gelatin, try using a coordinating soda.

Dissolve gelatin into the boiling water, mix in cream cheese, using a whisk.  Add the pineapple,  and soda. Fold in the Cool Whip and chill for 4 hours.

If you use orange gelatin, try mixing in mandarin oranges. For strawberry, try using some chopped fresh or frozen strawberries.

Well, still feeling stuffed. I’m going to watch Last Vegas with my loves. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
