Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole
5-6 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Ranch Dressing Packet
1/4 cup bacon
1-2 green onions, chopped
1/2-1 cup Cheddar Cheese
Peel potatoes and boil in a pot of water until soft, drain water and place in a bowl. With a mixer cream potatoes together with the butter, milk and ranch packet until smooth. Place potatoes in a sprayed casserole dish. Add cheese, bacon and green onions on top of potatoes and place in oven and cook at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
You can also add cream cheese or use sweetened condensed milk to make your mash potatoes a little bit more creamy.
- 2 cups fresh green beans, rinsed and ends removed
- 2 tsp olive oil
- kosher salt, to taste
- cracked black pepper, to taste
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1-2 tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
- Lay green beans out on cookie sheet; I lined mine with tin foil for easy clean up. Drizzle olive oil over the beans. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place in oven at 425 for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and lightly turn them over. Place back in oven for about 5-8 more minutes. Remove from oven again and sprinkle with cheese.

Homemade Pizza Sauce
1 can tomato suace
1 can tomato paste
2 garlic gloves
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion powder

This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I placed the extra sauce in ice cube trays and froze. When frozen I popped out and placed in a ziploc bag. Put in microwave for a few seconds to defrost when needed. Stays fresh in air tight container for 2 weeks in fridge or 3 months in freezer.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup oil
7 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients together, will be slighlty lumpy. In a frying pan lightly grease. When heated add a little bit of the mixture. Let cook until the edges start to fold up, then flip over.
Serve with fresh fruit, Nutella, roll in cinnamon sugar, or just plain syrup.

Homemade Scones with Honey Butter
1 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup warm water
4 cups flour, plus a little extra to lay out
Combine yeast and 1/4 cup of warm water to together and let sit for 5 minutes. Next add the butter, salt, sugar, 1 cup water, egg and mix together with your mixer. Slowly add in the flour until will incorporated.
When all mixed if your ready to eat soon, lightly flour your table top and roll out your dough. With a pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares.(I kept mine about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and made about 5 inch squares). I covered mine with Saran Wrap and let rest for about 45 minutes so the dough can rise. If you make it ahead of time cover the dough and place in the fridge, until ready to use.
I used a deep fryer to cook my scones, just watch until they are lightly brown flipping occasionally. If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a frying pan with a enough oil to cook scones.
This recipe makes quite a bit, it all depends on how think you make you them. But if your a small family I would either half the recipe or cut the dough in half and freeze
1 stick butter, softened
3 Tablespoons Honey
1-2 tsp vanilla
Mix with mixer until well mixed. This recipe is an estimate of how I make it. I always taste it and a little more honey if its not sweet enough, its up to your liking.
Stays good in fridge for about a month.
