Any recipes are good! I have a good one for meatloaf, if anyone is interested. My family found it very good. You have to remember though that ground beef shrinks when cooking! 1/2 cup ketchup ..1/3 cup brown sugar ...1/4 cup lemon juice, divided ...1 teaspoon mustard powder ...2 pounds ground beef ...3 slices bread... broken up into small pieces ...1/4 cup chopped onion ...1 egg, beaten ...1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and mustard powder. 2 In a separate large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread, onion, egg, bouillon, remaining lemon juice and 1/3 of the ketchup mixture from the small bowl. Mix this well and place in a 5x9 inch loaf pan. 3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour, drain any excess fat, coat with remaining ketchup mixture and bake for 10 more minutes. Let me know what you think if you make it.

Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette.....1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.....2 tablespoons Dijon mustard.....2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice.......2 garlic cloves, chopped....2 tablespoons olive oil.....Salt and freshly ground black pepper....3-4 Chicken Legs/Thighs bone-in. Whisk the vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper in small bowl to blend. Combine the vinaigrette and chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag; seal the bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Remove chicken from the bag and arrange the chicken pieces on a large greased baking dish. Roast until the chicken is just cooked through, about 1 hour. If your chicken browns too quickly, cover it with foil for the remaining cooking time. It's very easy and soooo yummy.

I love to cook....these recipes sound great!!! I'd like to share one! It's quick and easy, and there are many variations! Great for holidays and partys. You will need 2 cans (8 oz) crescent rolls, 8 oz. container chive and onion cream cheese, and crumbled bacon (I use the REAL bacon bit pieces...Oscar Meyer...they come in a small bag, and I use the whole bag). Preheat oven to 350. Roll out crescent roll dough (it is in the shape of 8 triangles), cut these triangles in 1/2 so you have 16 mini triangles. In a small bowl mix together cream cheese and a dollop on each piece of dough and roll up (directions on how to roll dough are on the can). Bake for about 10 minutes till golden brown....Yum! There are many different variations. Instead of the chive and onion cream cheese w/ bacon....I have used strawberry cream cheese with walnuts, and plain cream cheese with mini chocolate chips...these are sooo good! Keep the good recipes coming girls!

Dose anyone know how to make a pumpkin pie(using the pumpkin pie filling you get in a can)and i need to make some cookies for christmas any ideas?

I just heard about this amazing fruit dip today that's easy to make and nice for Chistmas. It's especially for apples, thinly sliced Granny Smith are best! All you do is line a dish with an inch or so or cream cheese, then spread some caramel as a second layer (the kind you can get in a plastic jar) and the add a top layer of crushed Skor candy bar (which you can do with a hand chopper). It's like eating a caramel apple topped with candy. Amazing! And perfect as a Christmas sweet treat.

RHONDA, I have a good recipe for pumpkin pie. It is the one I have always used, and everyone loves it! You will need.....9 inch unbaked deep dish pie shell, 16 oz. CANNED pumpkin (or sweet potatoes), 1/2 cup softened margarine, 14 0z can sweetened condensed milk, 2 eggs, and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. Preheat oven to 350. Mix pumpkin w/ melted margarine. Add remaining ingredients except eggs. Beat until smooth and well blended. Stir in eggs. Pour into pie shell. Bake 50-55 mins. I cover edges of crust w/ foil to prevent them from getting too brown for the first 45 mins. Hope this works for's really yummy, but nothing fancy.
