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!

Cranberry Gelatin Salad I
I used this recipe to use up leftover pineapple and cranberries. I only made a half batch, and the only gelatin I had on hand was green apple (and it wasn't sugar free). Sugar free would probably be better as it was pretty sweet, but the mixture of flavors was really's nice to have a recipe that can be good with most anything you have on hand!

Apple Jicama Coleslaw
This is a really nice "change of pace" coleslaw recipe! I've never used Jicama before and bought an old, thick skinned one which didn't have the nice sweet flavor it should have I only put a small amount in the salad. Next time I'll know better. But the flavor was great and the colors of green and red were festive enough for the Christmas potluck we took it to...everyone loved it!

Country Breakfast Casserole
Make sure to read the baking instructions...I didn't cover and got the temps wrong, but in the end it was still OK...but a bit dry from not covering. I put a single layer of hash browns on the bottom, and we liked the "crust" that it made. Seemed like it needed more eggs, but that could be from not covering it while baking.
