June 27th, 2008 Melanie Posted in Cooking 6 Comments »

Random RecipesThis week for the Random Recipe Exchange Pam has asked us to post our favorite side dish recipe.  She pointed out that the 4th of July is coming soon and that we could share our favorite side dish for the holiday.  But, I already posted my all time favorite side dish for Potato Salad and I just can’t think of anything else that even comes close to that recipe.

So, instead I am going to share my regular favorite side dish.

    Random Recipes

    For this weeks recipe exchange Pam asked us to share a drink recipe.

    My favorite drink ever is one that my mom makes.  I emailed her and asked her if it was okay if I shared her recipe with the entire world wide web.  She hasn’t answered me yet so I assume that means I can share it ;)   (edited to add- my mom never got my email asking her permission to share this recipe.  But, she read my post and said that I could share it with you all)

    Pineapple Slush Punch


    2 1/2 cups sugar
    3 cups water
    1 12 oz can frozen OJ
    1 12 oz can frozen lemonade
    1 46 oz can pineapple juice
    3 cups water (again)
    4 quarts ginger ale or lemon lime soda


    Put 3 cups water and sugar in 6 quart sauce pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in the OJ and lemonade. Add pineapple juice and 3 cups of cold water. Stir until blended. Put in a cake pan and freeze.

    When ready to serve cut the frozen pineapple mixture into squares. Pour 4 quarts of soda over squares.

    Serves 30

    Random Recipes- Picnic Edition

    May 23rd, 2008 Melanie Posted in Cooking 10 Comments »

    Random Recipes

    For this weeks Random Recipe exchange, Pam challenged us to share a picnic recipe.  With this being Memorial Day weekend, and the unofficial start to summer you know there will be lots of BBQ’s going on. 

    The recipe I am sharing is for a potato salad that my mom makes.  It isn’t like your regular mustard type of potato salad.  And I am not exaggerating when I tell you I could eat the entire recipe by myself.  It is that good.

    Potato Salad

    2 pounds small red potatoes, cooked
    1/2 cup sliced green onions
    1 cup Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing (I’ve made it with other brands and it is not the same.)
    Black pepper
    8 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled

    Cut slightly cooled small red potatoes into 1 inch cubes. In large bowl combine potatoes, green onions and ranch dressing. Toss gently and dust with pepper. Garnish with bacon. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Stop by Pam’s blog to see what everyone else is cooking up this weekend.

    Make sure you have entered my latest GIVEAWAY for a Hip-T.  It ends tonight at 11:59pm (EST).

    Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!

    Random Recipes- Lunch Edition

    May 9th, 2008 Melanie Posted in Cooking No Comments »

    Random Recipes

    This week for the Random Recipe exchange Pam asked us to share a lunch recipe.  My most common lunch
    recipe would have to be- open a can of soup, add some water and cook. While the soup is cooking, get 2 pieces of bread out, add some ham, cheese and mustard or mayonnaise.  But, I’m pretty sure that’s now what Pam had in mind for this exchange ;)

    So, here is my recipe for lunch.

    Cheeseburger Loaf

    1 pound ground beef
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced French bread
    1 tablespoon butter, softened
    8 ounces process American or Mexican-flavored cheese, sliced


    In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add soup, garlic salt, salt and pepper; simmer, uncovered for 5-10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, slice the top third off the bread. Hollow out bottom half of loaf, leaving a 3/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Spread butter on cut side of bread. Place loaf on an ungreased baking sheet and broil 4-in. from the heat until lightly browned.

    Spoon beef mixture into shell; arrange cheese slices on top. Broil 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Replace bread top. Yield: 6-8 servings.

    Stop by Pam’s blog to see what everyone else is cooking up this week.
