Got Recipes?

My friend Jonna sent me a request to join a recipe tree. I've participated in several of these over the years and have received a couple of great recipes, BUT . . .

There's always a but.

The way it works is you only have to send one recipe, but then you have to forward the request on to twenty people, hopefully people who will respond.

Well, I managed to scrounge up twenty people, but I've already gotten a bunch of emails from friends who either don't have the time or don't feel like they can come up with twenty people to send it to.

So since I love trying someone else's tried and true recipes, I thought I'd throw it out here . . .

Anyone want to play?

If you're interested, please email me, or leave a comment and I'll send you the full instructions.

Or you could just post your very favorite recipe in the comment section and then I'll have a whole bunch of new recipes to try!

Yup, Kate, I've found that trying too many new recipes does lead to a big Butt (on me). Donna might send you some.

Pick Me! Pick Me! I wanna play too.

Thanks also for the interesting camera info.


Kate said...

Miss Lazee, I've sent you an email with the info.

Thanks for playing (and please send me your recipe also)

This is one of our favorites and so easy. I'm not a big gingerbread fan but this cake is fabulous.

1 box gingerbread mix
1 cup applesauce
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 cup raisins

Mix gingerbread, applesauce, egg and water with a spoon. Stir in raisins. Pour in 9 x 13 pan (or a 9 x 9 if you want it thicker). Bake at 350 for 23-28 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. If you like, spread on some cream cheese frosting.

That's it.

I thought it was funny we both posted about recipes. I just did that letter with my DIL about a month ago and NO ONE followed through so they probably wouldn't again. But I can post my pot roast recipe here if you want???

I LOVE gingerbread and make it often and serve it with applesauce on top. I'm going to try it Sandie's way...YUM!

Kate said...

Donna, please do share your recipe!

So Sorry to not respond eariler but I just can't do the recipe thing either. Its a great idea but 20 people and the time situation just won't work.
Hope you get a good response.

I was sent the same email in October and only received 2 recipes. Nobody I know wants to play.
1/2 lbs scallops
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground ginger

mix and marinate scallops in the above while preparing the rest.
2 ribs celery slice diagonally
2 green onions sliced
1 clove garlic minced
Saute vegetables till crisp and push to one side then add scallops. Saute scallops and mix together. Serve with rice.

I just made this last night and it is yummy.

I will try the gingerbread cake in my new sun oven.
I need to work at eliminating the smell on the inside first. It is brand new.

Easy Crockpot Pot Roast

Brown a 2-3 lb. pot roast on all sides in a heavy pan over medium high heat and then put it in the crockpot. I like to use the crockpot liners. Sure makes it easy.

Lightly brown a coarsely chopped onion and a bit of garlic in the same pan then add that to the crockpot.

Deglaze the pan with a little water and about 1 cup of red wine. I don't know anything about wine other than it tenderizes meat and makes a rich gravy.

Pour the liquid over the roast. Add a couple of cut up carrots and a few pieces of celery and let 'er simmer for 6-8 hours or until tender (depends on your crockpot). Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I like to serve with mashed potatoes and make gravy from the liquid left in the pot.

You might need to add a little beef stock. This makes the tenderest pot roast I have ever had.
