Cream Sausage Mushroom Rigatoni

Dan found this recipe to use the rest of the sausage we had.  It was very good.  Would make it again for sure.  The recipe came from Taste of Home.





Ingredients

1 16 oz. package of rigatoni

1 lb. of italian sausage, cut into 1/4 inch pieces.

2 tsp. butter

1 lb. mushrooms, sliced

2 cloves, minced garlic

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 cups heavy whipping cream

minced parsley, optional

Directions

 Cook rigatoni according to package directions.

In a large skillet cook sausage over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes or until no longer pink.  Remove sausage from pan.

In the same skillet heat butter over medium heat.  Add mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper;  cook, covered about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Uncover; and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and liquid has evaporated.

Stir in cream; bring to boil.  Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes or until cream has thickened.   

Return sausage to skillet; heat through.  

Add drained pasta; combine and add parsley.

Serve.





Cocoa Puffs Krispies

I have seen this recipe a few times on line and as we do not have Cocoa Pebbles in Canada, I decided to use Cocoa Puffs Cereal instead.  They were good.  My granddaughter liked them. The recipe I used is on Cravings of a Lunatic.
 



I did not ice the Krispies, only used sprinkles on top.

Ingredients

For the Krispies part:

4 tbsp. butter

14 oz. marshmallows

11 oz. Cocoa Puffs Cereal, I small box

For the topping part:

1 cup nutella

1 cup milk chocolate, chopped up

2 tbsp. butter

Directions

For the Krispies part:

In a large microwaveable bowl, combine  butter and marshmallows and cook for about 3 minutes.  Check it every 60 seconds as every microwave is different.

Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until smooth.

Pour in cereal into this large bowl.

Stir until well combined.

Pour into a greased  9 X 13" pan.   If you wish thicker Krispies use a smaller pan 9X9" or 8X8' pan.

Smooth out with an offset spatula.  If you spray the spatula or spoon whatever you are using to smooth out the Krispies with spray oil (Pam) it will stop it from sticking.

Set aside to cool.

For the topping part:

Combine all ingredients in a glass microwavable bowl.

Pop into microwave and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, Checking very 15 to 30 seconds.

Stir until smooth.

Pour over the top of Krispies.

Let cool a bit.

Then sprinkle with colorful sprinkles on the top.

Cut into desired size square and serve.

Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes

In 2012 I made these pancakes.  The recipe came from The Pioneer Woman.
The recipe says you should get 12 4" pancakes.  I got about 8 that were closer to 5".  In looking at this photo it appears I added blueberries to them.



Ingredients

7 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/ 2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream (I swapped some with yogurt when I realized I was short, to no ill-effect)
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter
1/2 cup frozen blueberries, or fresh

Directions
 
Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat; you want it to slowly get nice and hot.
Stir the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together in the bottom of a medium bowl.
Dump the sour cream in on top and stir it together very gently; it’s okay to leave the texture a bit uneven.
Whisk the eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl and stir them into the sour cream mixture, once again, being careful not to over mix.
Melt about a tablespoon of butter in your skillet or griddle and pour the batter in, a scant 1/4 cup at a time.
Sprinkle a few blueberries on top while pancake is cooking.
 Cook for about 2 minutes on the first side, or until bubbles appear all over the surface, flipping them carefully and cooking for about a minute on the other side.
Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve in a stack, topped with a pat of butter and a cascade of maple syrup.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

In 2013 I made these brownies.  The recipe came from Pinch of Yum.



Ingredients
 Cookie dough

    1 stick salted butter (1/2 cup, very soft) 

    ¾ cup white sugar

    2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed 

    1 egg 

    ½ teaspoon vanilla 

    1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour 

    ½ teaspoon baking soda 

    ¼ teaspoon salt 

    1 cup chocolate chips 

    Brownie mix, I am guessing I would have used Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix.

    Directions

    With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars in a small mixing bowl. 

    Add vanilla and egg; cream again until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. 

    Stir gently until incorporated. 

    Stir in chocolate chips. Store in refrigerator until ready to use. 

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

     Prepare brownie batter as directed.

    Pour batter into a glass 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. 

    Scatter pieces of cookie dough over the top of the brownie batter. 

    In my 8×8 square pan, I was able to get about ⅔ of the cookie dough to fit over the brownies and I just saved the rest for regular cookies. 

    Press gently on the dough just until it starts to sink down into the batter a little bit. 

    Bake for 35-40 minutes (35 for gooey, 40 or more for fully baked), covering with foil if you need to keep the cookies from getting too brown on top. 

    Let stand for 15-20 minutes and cut into pieces for serving.

Lightly dust a worksurface with flour and unwrap pastry logs.  
Slice each log into six pieces.  
Roll each piece to about ¼-inch thickness and line each muffin cup  (you can trim the crust, or leave the “ruffle” of pastry for a pretty effect once it bakes.  
Chill lined muffin tin while preparing filling.
Whisk sugar, corn syrup and butter in a bowl by hand until combined.  
Whisk in eggs, then vinegar and vanilla.  
Sprinkle a few raisins in the bottom of each muffin cup and pour filling over the raisins.
