Chicken Pot Pie a bit Different
Carol's Mom is a great cook and when I went to visit Carol not too long ago, she had this awesome dish of food sitting on the counter that made us drool!
The recipe is simple:
Mix baby carrots, peas and Creme of Mushroom Soup with some diced, boneless chicken. Use a deep baking sheet or glass dish. After filling it, crumple some biscuits on top of it. Bake in the oven until thoroughly heated!
This is my kind of food: Quick & Easy!
Green Bean Casserole
You don't have to be a genius to be able to come up with some fast and yummy food. And you don't have to be the greatest cook either!
This is one of my favorite dishes and I can't imagine Thanksgiving without it!
Mix cooked, but drained, green beans with Creme of Mushroom soup and fill them into a glass-bowl (oven-proof). Top it with fried onions. Bake in the oven until bubbling/thoroughly heated.
If you want a kicker to it, you can add some coarsely ground pepper corns and/or some bacon bits!
Garnish with your choice of cheese!
The 'Another kind of Hell' Snack
One of my all-time favorites is Deviled Eggs. But, being from Texas, there got to be a 'kick' to it! Well, it started as a party challenge!
The basic Deviled Eggs are easy:
Hard-boil eggs and cut them length-wise. Take the yellow out and collect them in a bowl. Mix them with mayonnaise, salt, pepper and mustard (for the hellish variety you go with horseradish mustard; otherwise the sweet Bavarian will do.). With a spoon or some fancy decorating tube, fill the whites with the paste.
So where is the hell in it?
Finely chop some jalapenos (and I mean: finely), drain them really well, and add them to the filling. Make sure you drained the juice well or it will end up mushy.
Garnish with Taco seasoning instead of paprika; and serve with lots of milk!
I like somewhat spicy, but some of my friends are either evil spirited or have a stomach made out of copper!
You will need a pack of large tortillas, some breakfast sausage, tomatoes, corn,white rice, jalapenos, garlic, Taco seasoning, a bit Tabasco and some Pepper Jack cheese.
Cook the breakfast sausage with Taco seasoning and some chopped jalapenos and garlic. Slightly warm your tortilla in a large skillet. Cook the white rice with a little Taco seasoning and add a few drops of Tabasco sauce when done. Mix well. Add the tomatoes and corn to the meat and let it simmer for a few. When everything is done, mix the breakfast sausage/corn/tomato mixture with some rice. You can add shredded Pepper Jack, cubes or just lay a few slices of it on the tortilla before adding the mix. After laying out the tortilla (and the cheese, if you use slices), add a good amount of mix to the middle of it. Role it up and then fold up the bottom of it.
Serve with refried beans or chili and garnish with some Pico de Gallo, fresh parsley and a jalapeno. Offer some milk!
Creamy Dreamy Mushrooms
Its been at least twenty years since I made this last and I still remember the taste of it. Oh my God!
I don't know how he ended up there, but a former Chef worked in some garage in Germany, handing out tools to people!
Slice the mushrooms of your choice and add them to a skillet with a bit of butter, garlic and a good amount of creme. Saute them until the creme is reduced to a sauce. Season with salt and pepper and a bit of fresh herbs.
Serve with pasta, rice or potatoes and garnish with fresh herbs. Goes well with a steak! And if you 'smoother' your steak with some sauteed onions, peppers, garlic and layer it with three different kinds of cheeses, you add another 'notch' on the taste ladder!

A lot about a beautiful country and a bit about family!
Everybody can take a can of tomatoe sauce and a bowl full of cooked pasta and call it Spagetti... ...but can you think of something better to do with pasta?
There are over forty thousand varieties of rice, over a thousand varieties of potatoes and hundreds of varieties of pasta... ...AND, belief it or not, a breakfast food item used in a total different way!
