This is an easy delicious Ham, Cabbage and Potato Soup and was a staple growing up in the 1960s in our home.

This dish will feed a large family inexpensively and it's packed with health benefits.

Ham and any kind of meat you have on hand, really enhances the flavors of this broth and perfect for using up leftovers!

My mom made this often after a big holiday ham dinner using the bone and some meat off of it to make this soup,

I love comfort soups like this and you can add just about anything you like in the pot to make it even heartier so don't skimp on adding more vegetables your family likes.

I still make this in her memory but more often during the year, it's really a family favorite soup and so simple to make.

The soup can be made in an instant pot, slow cooker or stovetop.

A healthy rich soup that is perfect with a loaf of crusty bread of saltine crackers to sop up the delicious broth but fabulous just the way it is.

Those were served warm and gooey and the kids loved them.

They were so excited to taste that long ago memory in this copycat recipe!

You can even choose another filling I also added to the recipe that we love, filled with orange marmalade in the rolls.

The perfect breakfast or any time comfort food.

We just love the smell, it's hard to wait until they are cooled off to eat them and we always end up burning the roof of our mouth because we just can't wait!

Old Fashioned Corn Fritters

Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Here is a great recipe for some little old fashioned corn fritters.

These little fried cakes are very much like donuts, however, they are chock full of fresh farm-fresh corn, cut right off the cob.

A tender little treat that melts in your mouth and eaten while still a little warm with a light coating of powdered sugar.

I can't tell you how addicting these are, make two batches and watch these little gems fly right off the plate.

I use a brown paper bag to shake them into coat evenly and they're just the right sweetness.

If you've never tried this Southern little donut hole as the kids refer them too, you better whip yourself out a batch.

I love any kind of baked or fried donuts, especially easy ones like this recipe or Mom's Italian Fried Zeppole for dessert.

If you have tried my old fashioned chili or remember my Vegetarian Chili recipes then this ground venison chili will be another new favorite!

The results were fantastic and you would never know this wasn't beef!

If you wanted to use venison stew meat, that needs to be done in a slow cooker, but the venison hamburger can be done in a slow cooker, pressure cooker or stovetop!

We try to make it several different ways since we have a whole freezer full of venison.

This was an awesome idea.

It came out fantastic and great for leftovers too on nachos!

I left mine plain and poured some over a tossed salad but he smothered his with shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled some tortilla on his.

Italian Panzerotti

Italian Panzerotti is a fried inside out pizza, as they were described to me when I first had them. These are fried pizza pies but the filling is inside, like a fried stromboli stuffed pizza crust.

The panzerotti is often mistaken for the much larger calzone and also called inside out pizza.

They look alike and they’re both from Italy.

The panzerotti, however, is thought to have started in a small area of Apulia, a southern area next to the Adriatic Sea.

Starting out with homemade pizza dough, stuffed then fried, a delicious inside out pizza is born which is basically what these are.

Interesting fact: panzerotti are so popular in North America that more people consume them in the US and Canada than they do in Italy.

They’re also the basis for the frozen food or what they call hot pockets here in American.

While calzones are more commonly the size of a medium pizza, panzerotti’s remain small and sandwich size.

They tend to be about 9″ inches in diameter and semi-circled.

Panzerotti is essentially salted, deep-fried, pockets of dough filled with melted mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, and your pick of “toppings.”

During the frying process, they create a pocket of steam that needs to be released prior to eating as they are extremely hot inside like a fritter.

Panzerotti are so easy to eat while on-the-go it can be a great lunch, snack or a whole meal can be made with them

Eggplant Recipe Roundup

Wednesday, January 8, 2020
Eggplant is a popular plant and is considered a fruit that is a delicious addition to any recipes or eaten alone as an appetizer.

The fruit considered eggplant takes on the flavors it's cooked in easily and used in so many recipes served in many cuisines all over the world.

Here is a complete roundup of all my favorite recipes I have made over the years using this versatile delicious fruit.

This roundup includes eggplant with pasta, chicken stacked with eggplant, on pizza and even as a hummus dip, just to name a few ways to prepare it.

Eggplant can be a fantastic substitute for meat in many vegetarian meals for those who refrain from eating meat.

The characteristics of this fruit have many edible tiny seeds in it and the skin is also edible so it doesn't have to be peeled, however, I do peel it on occasion.

Cooking can be done by grilling, steaming, stir-frying, pan-fried, deep-fried, roasted, stewed curried and pickled.

It can even be mashed to make dips or stuffed with rice and meats.

Eggplant can have a bitter taste and has a very sponge-like consistency but will be tender when cooked and absorbs the flavors it's cooked in easily.

One of the tips to get the bitterness out is salting the sliced fruit before cooking may remove the bitterness, that method has always worked for me.

There are so many health benefits in eggplant and you will even find recipes for eggplant on the Mayo Clinic web site!

Below you will find several ways to prepare it and strolling through my gallery of our favorites, I hope you find one you love, we love them all.

this is a roundup of eggplant recipes

    Marinated Burgundy Prime Rib

    Wednesday, January 1, 2020
    The prime rib is perfect for the holiday season for a very good reason and this Marinated Burgundy Prime Rib roast is superb in flavor!

    It is the king of beef cuts period.

    This is a vintage recipe for the 1960s and how my mom made it.

    After all these years, it still a family favorite recipe.

    My husband requested this for his birthday since it's on New Year's Eve!

    It’s called a standing rib roast because to cook it, you position the roast majestically on its rib bones in the roasting pan.

    Beautifully marbled with fat, this roast is rich, juicy, and with this marinade a melt in your mouth tender roast.

    It’s also very easy to cook.

    Starting the roast in the oven at a high temperature of 450 degrees to get a good sear on the outside of the roast and then you finish cooking it on a lower temperature of 325 degrees.
