turkey, cut in chunks 1 green pepper, diced 2 stalks celery, sliced 1 onion,
sliced and quartered 1 teaspoon cayenne or to taste (or can be omitted
if you prefer) 1 tablespoon oil approx 1 cup cheddar, sliced or shredded
1 teaspoon oregano 1 teaspoon thymeIn a medium skillet, over medium
heat, heat the oil. Add the pepper, celery, and onions, cooking till the
onion is just beginning to turn brown. Drain the oil and add the herbs,
cayenne, and chicken, stirring as the chicken heats for a couple of minutes.
Add the cheddar on top of all, distributing as evenly as possible, and
put a lid on top of the skillet. Leave over heat just long enough to melt
the cheese-this will happen fairly quickly-and then remove and serve. Serves
2. Goes well with home fries or french fries. ===========Apple Bacon Cornbread StuffingThis is enough to feed 12-15 people.
I prefer to not stuff my turkey; the stuffing gets to soggy. I bake it
instead.1 8" pan homemade cornbread,
made the day before, then cubed.1 # bacon, fry, reserve fat and
drain bacon completely, and then chop in small piecesIn bacon drippings, saute 3-4 diced,
peeled apples 3-4 ribs celery (I love the leaves, too!) 1 bunch scallions,
chopped 2 cloves minced garlic Season with: 2 tsp. marjoram 1 tsp. sage
fresh pepper to tasteAdd 1 can reduced-sodium chicken
broth, and simmer until tender. (You will need 2 cans)To an additional 3/4 cup of broth,
beat in 2 eggsCombine cubed cornbread, the apple/celery
mixture, and the broth/egg mixture. Toss very gently, to retain the cube
shape of the cornbread. Place in a greased 2 quart casserole with a cover.
Chill. This needs to bake about an hour, and I drizzle about 1/4 cup of
additional chicken broth over the top before I bake it.

Be sure to take care to not burn yourself. You can choose to bake them ahead of time and do the next steps after they are cool.Put the following ingredients in a bowl: (this is per potato so if you are feeding 2 people, double this recipe): 3 slices of deli sliced ham, finely chopped 1 tbl finely chopped onion Shredded cheddar cheese to taste 1 tbl ranch dressing or Dill Dip (recipe below) 1 tsp. horse radish (optional) 1/2 cup fresh, steamed broccoli flowerets (frozen can be substituted) 1 tsp. dried parsleyDill Dip 4 tbl dried Dill 1/2 cup Mayonnaise 1/2 cup Sour Cream or Buttermilk Mix together and chill for 1 hour - this makes a great veggie dip as well as a great salad dressingScrape the potato out of the skin and put in bowl. Try not to tear the skins. Mix in the above ingredients until it is a creamy consistency. You can add more Ranch or Dill dip as needed to make the potato mixture creamy.Put mixture back into the potato skins, place them in a baking dish, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, uncover and bake until brown on top (about 10 more minutes). Serve===========This is great to make because it warm and filling, and nice to come home to after a long day at work! Toss everything into the crockpot right before you leave for work, and when you get home you can toss some Jiffy cornbread mix into the oven. In the 20 minutes that takes to bake, you can have the table set and a delish dinner ready to serve with hot cornbread. My husband and I are vegetarians so we eat this as a main dish, but friends of ours use it as a side dish when they make fajitas.Crockpot Chili* 1 1/2 cups long-grain converted rice, uncooked * 16 oz can whole tomatoes * 16 oz can Mexican style beans ( I like black beans but chili beans work well too) * 3 cloves garlic, minced * 1 large onion, finely chopped * 2 tablespoons vegetable oil * 1 cup cottage cheese * 4 oz can chopped green chiles, drained * 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheeseMix thoroughly all ingredients except 1 cup of the grated cheese. Pour mixture into well-greased crock-pot. (I spray the heck out of mine with Pam, including the underside of the lid) Cover and cook on low setting for 6 to 9 hours. Just before serving, sprinkle with reserved grated cheese.This dish is really hearty, and makes anywhere from 4 to 8 servings depending on how hungry people are and whether it's the entree or a side dish. ===========TURKEY WITH COCONUT SAUCE1 cup chopped mushrooms 1 cup chopped onion 3 tablespoons butter 2 heads of garlic, spearated into peeled cloves 1 tablespoon Spanish extra-virgin olive oil 1 (14 ounce) package traditional stuffing mix 1 (14 pound) turkey, one with a pop-up thermometer 3 tablespoons adobo, or to taste (available in Hispanic food section of supermarket or Latin groceries) 2 tablespoons dried oregano 2 tablespoons dried basil 2 tablespoons paprika 1 cup beer (preferably Corona) 1/3 cup pine nuts 1/3 cup chopped walnuts 1/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds 1 15 ounce can Coco Lopez (cream of coconut) 2 cups turkey gravy, homemade or 2 10 1/2 ounce cans turkey gravyTo make stuffing, saute mushrooms, and onions in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat in frying pan.

After thoroughly rinsing the turkey and patting it dry, use a small sharp knife to make several 1 inch incisions, about 3 inches apart, all around the turkey, with garlic press or food processor, chop garlic and mix with remainder of the butter and olive oil. Put garlic butter into a small plastic bag, snip off a corner, and use to squeeze the mixture into the incisions, to any leftover garlic butter add adobo, oregano, basil and paprika to taste. Rub this mixture over inside and outside of turkey, fill cavity with the stuffing. Place the turkey on a baking tray, sprinkle top with paprika, cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees, after 2 hours, lift the foil and pour the beer over the turkey, when the pop-up thermometer is about halfway up, remove the foil and continue roasting, a total of about 5 hours. In a toaster oven or on another shelf of the oven, roast the pine nuts, walnuts and sunflower seeds about 2 to 3 minutes, remove and mix with the Coco Lopez, heat in saucepan over medium heat.

Add 1 pint sour cream. Spread all of this mixture over the cake in the pan.Spread the rest of the angel food cake pieces over the pudding layer.Spread the contents of a large can of cherry pie filling over the cake pieces. (It's easier to do this if you spoon globs of it evenly over the surface and then gently spread them out to cover as much of the surface as you can.)Last layer: spread as much Cool Whip over the top as you like.It keeps well and travels well so is great for potlucks.===========Sunshine Crockpot Drumsticks* 12 chicken drumsticks, skinned * 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed, * 2 to 3 tablespoons honey * 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca * 1 fresh mild green chile or jalapeno pepper, seeded, thinly sliced * 1/4 teaspoon salt * 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes * 8 oz can drained mandarin oranges (optional)Adjust the flavors to your personal taste: use the higher range of orange juice, honey and jalapeno for extra orange flavor, spice, or sweetness, depending on your preference.Place chicken in crockpot.

This elegant (but simple to make) triple layer dessert is no exception. After slaughtering the cookbook cake recipe (which tasted like cardboard), I substituted a box cake mix, made a few other adjustments and tried again - hence the name. Very impressive - and very tasty!ALMOND RETORTE1 pkg Yellow Cake Mix (with pudding in the mix)2 cups heavy whipping cream 2 Tablespoons sugar 1 Tablespoon rum (or 1/2 tsp. rum extract) 3/4 cup toasted almonds, finely choppedPrepare cake mix according to package directions with the following changes: Use milk in place of 1/2 of the water. Bake in THREE round 8" cake pans. (Will not need as much baking time as two round pans - about 20 mins.) Using wax paper or parchment on pan bottoms really helps with cake extraction.When cool, whip cream, sugar and rum until fairly thick. Reserve 1/3 for top of torte. Mix chopped almonds into remaining 2/3 cream. Remove any crumbs from sides of cake layers. Place one layer on a plate and spread with half of the almonds/cream mixture. DO NOT COVER SIDES. Place a second cake layer on top and spread top with remaining almonds/cream. Place final layer on top and cover (top only) with reserved plain cream. Garnish as desired with more toasted almonds (whole, slivered or chopped), shaved chocolate curls, etc. (Chopped Hershey Nuggets - with almonds or toffee bits - is our favorite.) Chill until ready to serve. Keep refrigerated.Note: To toast almonds, place in even layer in baking pan or cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 4 - 7 minutes. WATCH CLOSELY as the difference between toasted and scorched can be less than a minute.===========Christmas Eve Punch2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice 2 cups orange juice 1/2 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup honey 2 Tbsp. maraschino cherry juice1 qt. vanilla ice cream 28 oz. ginger ale, well chilledBlend juices and honey and chill until serving time. When ready to serve, pour juices over small scoops of vanilla ice cream in punch bowl, and stir until ice cream is almost dissolved. Carefully add the ginger ale. Serve immediately. (This "curdles" if left very long.
