A Recipe a Week


Okay these are two that I made tonight. Both were very yummy.

Cheese Olive Loaf

1 loaf french bread
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbs of mayo
1/2 cup pimento stuffed sliced green olives

Don't let the mayo scare you off you can't even taste it.

Mix cheese, mayo, and olives together. Spread onto the french bread. Wrap the bread in foil and bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Spaghetti with Zesty Bolognese

1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup Zesty Italian dressin
1 lb lean ground beef
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 Tbsp cream cheese
12 oz spaghetti, uncooked
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook onions and dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Increase heat to medium high, add meat and cook stirring frequently until browned. Stir in tomato sauce and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese.

While sauce is simmering cook pasta as directed on package.

Pour sauce on spaghetti and top with parmesan. 

Last one a quick and simple dessert.

Chocolate Plunge

2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 package 8 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate

Microwave corn syrup and whipping cream until mixture comes to a boil. Add chocolate stir until melted. 

I serve with strawberries, marshmallows, pound cake, graham crackers, or other things that are chocolate dippable! My kids LOVE this!

Yes, Carin it is, I buy the wooden bamboo skewers for the kids to use to dip. I have to keep a close eye on them or a sword fight ensues, LOL!
