Ham and Green Bean Casserole
About this Cook
Ranch & raise alfalfa in rural SE Oregon. Horses, dogs, cows & lots of irrigation.
My favorite things to cook
We like things that taste good and are filling...and fairly easy and quick to prepare. That's not askin' too much is it?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fall and winter leave me time to enjoy some baking and making dinners that take a lil' more time to prepare. The slow cooker is my best friend.
My cooking tragedies
Note to self: Hot Picante Sauce is not the same as Pace Picante Sauce!

Three Pepper Pasta Salad
Definitely a 5 star recipe! As usual, it takes way more time than the recipe states when slicing and chopping. But, I followed the recipe as written except that I threw in a handful of Parmesan cheese, 'cause that's the way we like it!! Fresh Basil is the ticket...wouldn't even try it with dried Basil. I was also tempted to add some minced garlic...I'll try that next time. The husband thought it was awesome...and we have plenty of leftovers for tonight's dinner too, so we'll see how the cold/leftover turns out. Perfect recipe for hot summer days...and plenty for a potluck dish!

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers
These were company LOVED them!! I made a couple of changes with what I had on hand. I used 5 medium green peppers cut in half and seeded; par boiled for 5 minutes. I only had 1 lb of hamburger, so I added a bit of extra rice. Added a couple of dashes of hot sauce to give it a bit of a kick...but not too much. Topped with a pizza blend grated cheese. Will definitely make this again! PS: high altitude baked at 360 degrees for 30 minutes, added cheese and baked an additional 10.
