Spaghetti Casserole

Have you ever had just one of those days?  I have been trying to grow my hair out and it has been difficult process.  Yesterday, I finally had a good hair day. I rushed out the door to get my daughter from the bus and drove because it was raining hard.  I get out of the car, open my umbrella and go to cross the street.  Just then a gust of wind rips the umbrella off and I am left holding the pole.  Needless to say my good hair day lasted about 5 minutes.. ... Oh well, atleast I had a productive day for a change.  I made:
2 spaghetti casseroles
a batch of french bread
One shepherd pie
3 lbs of meatballs.
(I really don't know what got into me or where the energy came from.)

My grandma made me spaghetti casserole one time.  I loved the little different twist on spaghetti and not to mention it tasted great.  I regretted never getting the recipe from her.  For years I played around with ingredients and think I finally got it pretty close to hers. 

Spaghetti Casserole
1 lb. hamburger, cooked
12-16 oz thin spaghetti, cooked and drained. (Break it in half or thirds before cooking.)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can tomato soup
1 can sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

Mix all ingredients except mozzarella cheese in a large bowl.  Add one cup mozzarella cheese.  Spread in to a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Sprinkle the other cup of mozzarella cheese and a little more parmesan on top of casserole.  Bake covered  for 30-35 minutes.  Uncover for the last 10 minutes.  If refrigerated it may take a few more minutes to cook.

I like to add a little extra cheese.  I was a bit low on cheese this time!!

  1. I've heard of this, but I've never had it. I'll have to give it a try.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
