Sausage Balls
I've made these for 30+ years and have made some minor changes. 1. Hot sausage 2. Bring sausage to room temp. 3. I break the sausage into smallish pieces and put them on a baking sheet which I place in the middle of a cold oven. 4. Turn the oven on to 225 degrees. 5. Let it heat until the fat in the sausage begins to render; remove the tray and drain the grease. The sausage won't be cooked but will be very warm and kinda' gooey-ish. You can press a paper towel on it to soak up more grease. I replace some of the "lost" grease with a spoon or 2 of low fat cream cheese. Otherwise I follow the directions. For us this makes them a bit less greasy or heavy. In our 4 generation household they're a hit! One additional note. Sub in hot or mild Italian sausage. Sub in mozz, provolone and shredded Parmesan cheese. Add a little extra biscuit mix and a Tbl of milk, plus a bit of garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Prepare as above. Serve with marinara or pizza sauce. My grand kids love this at snack time.

Campfire Foil Packs
This is just like one of the recipes I recreated at home from my years of summer camp in the '60s. It's a great go-to when you have a house full of people or disjointed schedules. A few tricks. We often have veggie trays with dinner and make foil packs, using the leftovers, the next night. If it don't have leftovers to use, I cut up a variety of vegetables ahead of time and put them in individual plastic bags. Everyone makes their own. We just double heavy duty foil and do it envelope style. Potatoes cook best if they're on the bottom of the pack. Season to your individual tastes. Salt, pepper, taco seasoning, chili powder, chicken seasoning . . . Use chicken, ground pork, beef or chicken/turkey - whatever you like - but crumble it at the top of your pile and place a small ice cube on top. You can add ketchup, steak sauce, taco or enchilada sauce to the top before sealing and .cooking

Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip
I found a way to make EVERYONE happy! I made 1 1/2 recipes. With half of the mix I used pepper jack cheese, blue cheese dressing and a scant 1/4C blue cheese crumbles. With the other I used cheddar/jack cheese, ranch dressing and 1 tsp. of powdered ranch dressing mix. Served them side by side with some blue cheese crumbles to spoon on top as they chose. I did use low or reduced fat ingredients where I could but that's my personal take. HINT: Blue cheese can be pricey and extras spoil if you don't use it frequently. I always buy the amount I need at the salad bar in my local grocery. It's less expensive by the pound there and I don't end up with a lot of leftovers to worry about wasting.
