Here is a really quick and easy dinner to make when pressed for time. My mom originally got this out of a newspaper when we were kids and we loved them so much, she made them all the time. Originally they were supposed to be shaped like pumpkins (it was Halloween at the time).

Beef and Cheese Dumplings
Ingredients:

2 packs (10 each) of refrigerated biscuits 1 lb. ground beef 2 tbsp. yellow mustard (or to taste) chopped onion to taste 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1 egg white

Brown your ground beef and drain excess fat. Add mustard, onions and mozzarella cheese and stir until cheese is melted pretty good. Flatten out half of the biscuits on a couple of baking pans to about 5 inches around. Add about 2 tbsps. of the ground beef mixture to each. Flatten the other half of the biscuits and place on top of the ground beef mixture. Press edges together and make small slits on top for steam. (This is where mom made them look like pumpkins or smiley faces, cutting out eyes, nose...etc.) Using a pastry brush, brush on a little egg white. Cook for same amount of time as the refrigerated biscuits call for.

We always put a little butter on top, my husband prefers ranch dressing or you can eat them plain. It's a great recipe for kids! They're pretty filling - but if you have a big family, you can just double the recipe!

Pineapple Cheese Pie

8 oz. package cream cheese - softened 16 oz. container whipped topping (Cool Whip) 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained 8 oz. can pineapple slices or chunks, drained (for garnish, if desired) ready made graham cracker pie crust

With a hand mixer or food processor, blend the cream cheese and crushed pineapple until smooth. Stir in the whipped topping and spread into the pie crust. Garnish with pineapple slices or chunks and refrigerate for 2 hours until firm.

_______________________________________

QUICK VEGETABLE SAUTE

1 1/2 c. broccoli florets* 1 large onion, sliced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1T. sesame seeds 1t. Italian seasoning 1 1/2 T. olive oil

Saute sliced onion, minced garlic and sesame seeds in the olive oil in a wok or large skillet until onions are transparent and sesame seeds are browned. Add broccoli florets; cover, cook about 5 minutes until broccoli has achieved the degree of doneness that your family prefers. (Mine like it hot and raw.)

* Can use zuccini or any other vegetable, or add more onions. Also, a mushroom or two cut up and sauteed with the onion and garlic is a nice touch. Made with zuccini, it makes a good topping for pasta - add some grated parmesan or romano. Saute some chicken breast strips to go along with it, and you've got a meal.

_______________________________________

This is an old family recipe which is now being passed on to each new in-law's family. We all love it. I like it without the apples. Obviously, this doesn't keep long so don't make an excessive amount of it. Make it and eat it right away.

Apple and Banana Salad

1 egg, separated 2/3 c sugar 2 Tbsp flour 2Tbsp butter 1 c water 1 tsp vanilla

Beat yolk of egg, Add sugar, flour, and butter and mix thoroughly. Put in saucepan and put on stove. Add water and stir constantly until it boils. Let this cool completely. Add vanilla and gently fold in egg white which has been stiffly beaten. Pour sauce over diced apples and bananas.

_______________________________________

Three Soup Chicken

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (use 8 if they're small) 1 box Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice 2 cans of Campbell's creamed soups (any of them work - I usually use cream of broccoli, cream of asparagus, and cream of mushroom) 3/4 can (soup can) of milk (low fat will work) salt and pepper to taste

Mix uncooked rice with seasoning packet, together with the soups and milk. Pour a small portion (enough to lightly cover) in the bottom of 13 x 9 glass baking dish. Add chicken breasts. Cover with remaining mixture. Cook uncovered in 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes. Serve with a side salad and corn bread. (Makes great leftovers and is a great dish for dinner parties).

Here's another way to use up those dyed Easter eggs. This originally came from a 1940's-era booklet from Crisco shortening. It's the American way--take something that's a little bad for you and make it really bad for you!

Fried Deviled Eggs

6 hard-cooked eggs Salt and pepper to taste Vinegar to taste, about 1 tsp. 1 TB mayo 1/2 C bread crumbs 1 egg, beaten Vegetable oil or shortening Peel eggs and cut in half. Remove yolks, mash and season to taste with salt, pepper and vinegar. Add enough mayo to make a thick paste. Put filling into egg white halves and level off. Dip egg into bread crumbs, then into the beaten egg and again in the crumbs. Heat oil or shortening in skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs, yolk-side down and fry until browned. Turn and fry other side. Drain on paper towels and serve while hot. Yield: 6 servings

_______________________________________

I don't know where this recipe originated from but it is always our favorite Easter desert (and any other occasion we can think of). I also will use Raspberry Pie Filling in place of the Blueberry and I simply cannot choose which is my favorite.

Blueberry Pie in the Sky

8 oz. cream cheese, softened 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk 6 oz. can frozen lemonade 1 tsp. vanilla 14 oz. can blueberry pie filling 8 oz. container frozen whipped topping, thawed 2 graham cracker pie crusts

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and add the sweetened condensed milk. Mix until well blended. Add the frozen lemonade and the vanilla, mix well. Stir in the pie filling and then gently fold in the whipped topping. Pour into pie shells and refrigerate until firm.

We usually substitute the pie crusts with a graham cracker crust in the bottom of a 9 x 13 cake pan. You can also reserve a small amount of the pie filling and use it to decorate the top of the pies.

Here is a terrific recipe for Taco Salad that is *different* from all the rest! Everyone loves it! Do not subsitute anything except you can use the low-fat version of Catalina dressing if you want. I cut up the cherry tomatoes but you can leave them whole.

Mexican Taco Salad

1 lg. head of lettuce, chopped 12 cherry tomatoes 1 green pepper, finely chopped 1 small purple onion, finely chopped 1 can chili beans, drained 1/2lb sharp Cheddar cheese, grated 1 small bottle of Catalina dressing 1 (11oz) bag crushed Fritos

Toss together the first 4 ingredients. Add remaining 4 ingredients.

_______________________________________

I can't even remember where I got this recipe from. I tweaked the quantities a bit to suit my family. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better it tastes, as the garlic gets absorbed by the oil.

Canadian Vinaigrette

1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper 2 tbsp. mustard 1/3 cup olive oil

Combine red wine vinegar, garlic, pepper and mustard. Whisk in olive oil until blended. Serve immediately or refrigerate. After refrigeration, vinaigrette becomes clumpy and needs to sit for a while.

Once chilled, cut chicken into 1/4 inch cubes. Coat with 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce Place pizza crust on pizza pan or stone. Spread last 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce over crust. Spread chicken over crust, then onion, then green peppers. Top with cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese at the center is bubbly. Let stand for a few minutes to set.

This recipe is a favorite at my house - it is from Bobby Flay of FoodTV - delicious and easy. Now that grilling weather is upon us in the Northeast we will be serving it more often.

Salmon with brown sugar and mustard glaze

3 TBSP light brown sugar 1 TBSP honey 2 TBSP butter 1/4 c dijon mustard 2 TBSP soy sauce 2 TBSP olive oil 1 TBSP finely grated ginger vegetable oil

Melt brown sugar, honey and butter in a small over medium high heat. Remove from heat and whisk in the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and ginger. Let cool.

Preheat grill to med heat & brush salmon with oil and season with salt & pepper. Place salmon skin side down on grill. Coat flesh of fillet with brown sugar mixture, Grill 6-8 minutes to medium doneness, turning once after 5-6 minutes. (depends on thickness of fillet) - I coat the otherside with sauce once flipped too.

Can also be broiled.

_______________________________________

These taste like fried cheesesticks, if u can believe it! LOL Needing some sort of dipping sauce, I fried these up and put them into spaghetti sauce. The rich taste of the chips, and the flavorful taste of the spaghetti sauce really combined well. These would taste good with a simple marinara sauce also, or ranch dressing dip.

Copeland's Bow Tie Pasta Appetizer Bowtie Chips

8 oz Bowtie pasta 2 eggs 2-3 tablespoons milk seasoned bread crumbs oil for frying

Boil bowtie pasta in boiling salted water for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and let cool. Mix up eggs and milk and dip each piece into mixture. Then roll in the bread crumbs. Fry pasta in oil until deep golden brown.

Cover and chill remaining condensed milk. To bake, let pan of rolls stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Heat oven to 350 F. Bake 30-35 mins. , or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes; loosen edges and remove rolls from the pan. For frosting: IN a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, remaining sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Drizzle on warm rolls. Sprinkle rolls with additional chopped pecans, if desired. Yields 12 rolls.

Great Marinade

This is one of the easiest ways to make chicken and fish.

2 parts Italian salad dressing (I use fat-free) 1 part dijon mustard

Take a tablespoon from your kitchen drawer, measure 2 of dressing and one of mustard. I do the dressing first, makes the mustard slide right off the spoon. Stir. You can either marinade your chicken or fish overnight or, simple pour the mixture over the meat and cook it. That's how I usually do it, no time to marinade, and it's awesome!

BEEF EL TORITO

Got a leftover hamburger or two you don't know what to do with? Now that outdoor grilling season is coming (and down here in Florida, barbeque smells already abound), leftover burgers are going to be almost as abundant as the mosquitoes. Here's a simple way to use up a leftover hamburger and get dinner or lunch for two out of it. It's not fancy, but it's satisfying. If you have two leftover burgers, just double all the quantities, or triple them for three leftover burgers.

Of course, the leftovers don't have to have been grilled outdoors, and they don't even really have to be burgers--this recipe will work with leftover meatloaf or meatballs as easily.

1 leftover hamburger (or the equivalent amount of meatloaf or meatballs) 2 tablespoons canola or other oil 1 red or green pepper, diced 2 cloves garlic, diced 1/4 cup green olives (stuffed or not, cook's choice), halved 1 tablespoon fresh dill 1/4 cup red wine salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the green or red pepper and the garlic, cooking just till the garlic is soft but not brown. Crumble or cut the meat into small bits and add to the skillet, stirring as it cooks till the part that had been inside is lightly browned. Add the remaining ingredients, adjusting the heat so the mixture simmers, and allow to simmer, uncovered, till most of the wine is absorbed. (This will just take a few minutes.) Keep an eye on it, and stir it a couple of times as it cooks. Goes well with salad, french fries, mashed potatoes, home fries, corn on the cob, or most any green vegetable. Also works well with rice. Serves 2.

Tony's Seasoning

here is the recipe for Tony's that you can make at home for SIGNIFIcan'tLY less money than the prepackaged. It comes directly from Tony Cachere's "Cajun Country Cookbook" published in 1979.

Ingredients: 1 box (26 ounces) Morton's free flowing salt 1 1/2 ounces ground black pepper 2 ounces ground red pepper 1 ounce pure garlic powder 1 ounce chili powder 1 ounce monosodium glutamate (Accent)

Instructions: "Mix well and use like salt. When it's salty enough, it's seasoned to perfection. Use generously on everything. If too peppery for children, add more salt to mixture, then season to taste."

Tips: To season seafood..........use half of above mixture and add: 1 teaspoon powdered thyme 1 teaspoon bay leaf 1 teaspoon sweet basil

Italian Beef Supreme

1# Ground Chuck 1 can tomatoes (I like Rold Gold Italian or Mexican. They have them at Kroger grocery store) 1 can (8oz) tomato sauce (I like the kind with garlic) 2-3 tsp. salt 2-3 tsp. sugar 2 cloves crushed garlic (I buy the jar garlic) 1 5oz package of egg noodles 1 cup of sour cream 1 3 oz package of cream cheese (I like the 8oz soft garlic) Green onions (the more the better, I say!) Ground cumin (our favorite spice so adjust for your tastes. I use ~1TBSP) 8 oz. bag Mozzarella Cheese Parmesan cheese

Brown ground beef in skillet and stir into very small pieces. Drain off the fat and return meat to skillet. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, sugar, and garlic. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook noodles and drain. In a bowl combine sour cream, cream cheese, onions and noodles. In a greased 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, pour a small amount of meat; cover with a layer of noodle mixture, then mozzarella cheese, repeat and then finally top with parmesan cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35-45 minutes. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving.

Note: I double this and use a 9 x 13 dish. You don't have to double the noodles. I use about an 8 oz. bag.

My family loves this casserole! It is a great addition to an Easter Brunch or Dinner.

HASHBROWN CASSEROLE

1 32 oz. package frozen hashed brown potatoes, thawed* 1/2 c. melted butter or margarine 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 c. chicken broth 2 c. sour cream 1/2 c. finely chopped onion 2 c. shredded sharp cheese (Colby or cheddar work well) 1 t. salt 1/4 t. pepper Topping: 1/4 c. butter or margarine 2 c. crushed cornflakes Place hash browns in a large mixing bowl. Stir in ½ cup melted butter, soup, broth, sour cream, cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 3 quart casserole dish. Over low heat, melt remaining ¼ cup of butter in a skillet. Add cornflakes and sauté, stirring frequently, until the cereal is browned. Sprinkle cereal over potatoes. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serves 8 to 10.

*When not pressed for time, I will substitute about 3 lbs of white potatoes (redskin potatoes are even better!), cooked and diced, for the frozen hash browns. I've also turned it into a main dish by adding about two cups of cubed smoked ham.

It is a very simple cake to make but it sure looks pretty.

Tri-Color Easter Cake

Follow the directions on a box of white cake mix. Divide equally among three bowls. Color each portion a different Easter color with food coloring, i.e. pink, yellow, and green. Pour each color into separate round pan. Bake according to box instructions. Frost tops and sides with white frosting, add coconut if you would like. Or make matching frosting and frost tops of each layer only. Better still: make three different flavor (and color) cake layers, such as strawberry or cherry, lemon, and kiwi.

For the Fourth of July, Memorial Day etc, make red, white and blue layers. Just make appropriate color layers for holiday involved. Great birthday cake too!

Neopolitan Cake 1 layer strawberry cake and frosting 1 layer vanilla cake and frosting 1 layer chockolate cake and frosting

Pull chicken legs forward to form a sort of tripod. The chicken should sit upright over the can. Carefully transfer chickens to grill in this same position, placeing them in center over drip pan away from heat. If useing charcoal, toss half the wood chips on each mound of coals. If using gas, place chips in smoker box.Barbecue chickens until nicely bowned and cooked through, About 1 1/2 hours, keeping temperature about 350 degres F. (If useing charcoal, replenish coals as needed.) The internal temerature of the birds (taken in thickest part of thigh) should be 165 F. Carefully transfer birds to platter in same position.

a great quick recipe for a main dish with only three ingredients.

Santa Fe Chicken

3 deboned chicken breasts, cut into strips 2 15 oz. cans black beans, drained 1 cup salsa

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. "Pam" a 7xll casserole dish. Mix drained black beans and salsa. Pour a little on bottom of casserole. Put chicken strips over and cover with remainder of bean/salsa mixture. Bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes. Serve over yellow (or white) rice. We like to heat tortillas in the microwave until soft, and use the chicken/bean mixture with rice to make burritos. I serve shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped onion, and jalapeno peppers on the side to add into the burritos. We all love this, no matter how I serve it! Serves 6.
