Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

This is one of those recipes that I had forgotten about.  It was a dish my roommate made our first year of college and for many years it was a staple at all the family gatherings.  Somehow it got lost in the shuffle of things.  I decided this year to bring it back and I was not disappointed.  It was delicious. Broccoli Cheese Casserole 2 lbs broccoli 1 lb Velveeta cheese 6 Tbsp milk 2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers 1/2 cup butter, melted Heat oven to 350 degrees. Steam or cook the broccoli.  Drain and place in a 9 x13 baking dish.  Crush the Ritz Crackers and mix with the melted butter.  Set aside. Cut the cheese into cubes. Place in a saucepan add the milk and heat on medium heat stirring constantly until it is melted.  Add the cheese to the broccoli.  Add 1/2 of the cracker mixture and mix it all together.   Top with the remaining cracker mixture and bake for 45 minutes until heated through. *I halved the recipe this time since there was only three of us eating.

Cooking Meat to the Correct Temperature the Easy Way

Prime Rib has been a tradition that I cook once a year at Christmas.  Each year I have had to careful use my math skill to figure out how much time to cook it in order to get it done just right.  Well this year will be different thanks to the Cave Tools Quick Read Digital Cooking Thermometer. It is so cool.   I got excited and wanted to try it out.  I used the thermometer on a roast in the crock pot. I had never used a meat thermometer before and it was so easy. It is a beautiful stainless steel, small enough to fit in your pocket and has 4-6 second read times. It would make an great gift.
