I saw this randomly listed on Facebook and could not find a link to credit this. It’s not my recipe but it seems so yummy and easy that I wanted to post it here to try out.

Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent rolls
2 (8oz each) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted

Unroll and spread 1 of the cans of crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish (or 8 x 8 if you want to cut the recipe in half). Combine softened cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Spread over crescent roll layer. Unroll and layer remaining crescent rolls over cream cheese layer. Melt your butter and spread over top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 20-30 minutes in 350 degree oven until bubbly and slightly browned. Drizzle with a little honey if you like. Let cool a bit, slice and eat.

Drop by TEASPOON onto wax paper. (Make sure you use 1 heaping teaspoon – it looks small but it’s perfect…mine got a little bigger as I went along)

Do not reuse the paper for each batch!!!!

Bake 8-10 min at 350 degrees (check them at 8 min depending on oven…they get smokey…you want them light brown on the bottom)

This recipe will yield about 9 dozen smaller cookies! They are perfect for a party. Enjoy with some milk.

Steak Sauce

With thanks to Uncle Joe, I have a quick and easy steak marinade/sauce. It has become a regular in our meal rotation and I can’t wait to use it out on the grill. After cooking the steak, cut it up real thin and mix around with the juices and some of the sauce. I like to marinate it for at least an hour but you don’t have to. I also eye ball this recipe so you can use more or less and it will still come out great. Stir it up and baste it on. Yummy!

Uncle Joe Steak Sauce

1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce
1/8 cup Soy Sauce
Tsp. Garlic Powder
Tsp. Onion Powder
A few grinds of Black Pepper
Pinch of Salt

Fried Rice

I love Chinese food but it’s pricey and you always get so much more than you need. So the other night, I decided to try and make my own Chinese inspired dinner.

Boil a bag of whole grain brown rice. Set aside. In a frying pan, fry two eggs in a little olive oil and then break it up with wooden spoon. Add chopped garlic and onion, salt and pepper. Use a little more olive oil and melt a dab of butter in the pan. Put rice into pan and fry together. It really was that easy and tasty too. You can add some veggies or meat even and pair it with some Ahsu pork or chicken with a side vegetable. Grab the chopsticks and enjoy!

Now if I could figure out how to make crab rangoons I’d be all set without take out.

Aunt Rose’s Hamburger Noodle

This has been one of my favorite dishes since I was a teenager. I made it last night and have never seen Lucy eat so well at dinner! Thought I’d share this one for you. It’s an easy comfort food dish.

Aunt Rose’s Hamburger Noodle Casserole

3/4 bag egg noddles
1 pound ground beef
1 onion
1 can Golden Mushroom Soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup of water
6 slices of American Cheese

Optional – add in some celery (I don’t like celery) and/or sliced mushrooms if you want extra.

While the noodles cook, brown hamburger in skillet, saute the onion and celery in butter. Mix together and add soup – rinse each can with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer and add noodles. Pour half into buttered casserole dish and top with half the cheese then top with remainder of casserole and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve warm.

You could make this ahead and not bake it. After you fridgerate it, bake it until warm, 20-30 minutes.
