Happy belated Easter to everyone. We had a busy day yesterday so I did not get a chance to post. My dad came over from Ohio for the weekend. We had a nice time and I made a small Easter meal for the four of us. I thought I would share the recipes because everything came out so wonderful. Don’t mind my presentation…I am not into that at all. Have you checked out allrecipes.com? If you haven’t it is a gold mine of yummy recipes. That is where I have gotten most of my recent 5 star recipes from.
1. Green Beans: I took Steamfresh premium select green beans and microwaved them according to package. Then I sauteed them with equal parts of Newman’s Own Parmesan & Roasted Garlic Dressing and butter. Then I added slivered almonds. I HATE VEGGIES WITH PASSION, but these were actually tolerable. My husband scarfed them up like they were candy.
2. Honey-Glazed Ham – I used this recipe from allrecipes.com. I actually made mine in the crockpot and used 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup of honey like others suggested. Out of this world! I was a generous baster and scored the ham and put cloves in also. Even Tim, who isn’t a ham-eater loved it.
3. Homemade Rolls from the Breadmaker – I put the following ingredients in the breadmaker in this order: 1 tbl yeast, 4 cups of flour, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 cup scalded milk (I microwave it for 2 minutes), 3 beaten eggs, and 1 stick of softended butter. When the breadmaker goes off I letthe dough sit in the machine for another half hour. Then with floured handed I shape them into balls and bake them at 325 degrees for about 1o-12 minutes. YUMM-O!
4. Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes – Another 5 star recipe from allrecipes.com. I am sorry they don’t look appetizing in the picture. But if you could have tasted them. . .divine! This is the way I am making mashed potatoes from now one. You can make these ahead of time and freeze them also for you freezer meal people.
