Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

I stayed very close to the original and glad it turned out so well. Kudos to Mike at his betterbaking.com blog for this toothsome…

Lotta Cheese Cheese Burger by Patti Fisher

We got a complaint from some friends that when they go out for burgers the meat is paper thin and the cheese, if you can find any, is tasteless. We had no choice but to say “See you tomorrow, come hungry!” Everyone was happily stuffed and knew they were eating a cheese burger. They may be back again tomorrow. Not only was there 2…

Sometimes we do a recipe just because it looks like fun, and this one was perfect for our 500th recipe on our new “Date Night Doins BBQ for Two” web site. (Almost 2 years old) This had everything we liked in a bacon cheeseburger, but with a fun twist. Ken put the cheese inside the burger, shaped it like a hot dog and wrapped it in…

Easy as Pie - Apple Cake

Easy as Pie - Apple Cake by B Innes

This recipe is just about fool-proof and probably works best in a bundt pan but the possibilities are endless with so many variations of fruit and cake batter.
