This is a recipe from Pinterest in my “Sweet Tooth” board.
It is called 2 ingredient pumpkin brownies.
Here are the 2 ingredients.
This is what they ended up looking like.
I did not like these at all.
They are very moist, but the taste is not good!
I am going to try to sample some of these great and not so great recipes that I have found on Pinterest and let you know what I think.
Have you tried very many recipes from Pinterest?
I don’t know about you all, but I have used my slow-cooker (crock pot) a lot lately.
I have found some great recipes on Pinterest.
But there are a bunch of recipes that I would like to try that are made for the oven.
Lucky for us I found this “Slow-Cooker Conversion Chart” in an old issue of Paula Dean Magazine.
Recipes for large cuts of meat, casseroles, soups, and stews are all terrific for slow cooking.
The main thing is to reduce the liquid to about 1/2 cup unless the recipe contains rice, beans, or pasta.
To figure the cooking time, use this guideline:
~15 to 30 minutes conventional cooking time = 4 to 6 hours on LOW or 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on HIGH.
~35 to 45 minutes conventional cooking time – 6 to 8 hours on LOW or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH.
Cook combinations of raw meat and vegetables for at least 6 to 8 hours on LOW to give the flavors time to blend.
I hope this helps you.
I am so very happy to have found this!
My daughters were in a wedding recently, so we just couldn’t resist a photo-op.
One of their high school buddies got married.
Anytime all of my children are going to be home at the same time Mom and I have a dinner.
This time we had pasta.
Mom made her famous lasagna.
Recipe to come as soon as possible.
I made this Chicken Pasta Primavera.
It was very good.
Here is the recipe:
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 C cut up broccoli
1/2 C diced onion
1 C bite sized carrots
1 C sliced zucchini
1 C sliced yellow squash
2 C sliced white button mushrooms
1 chopped bell pepper
5 T butter
2 T olive oil
1 1/2 lbs cooked whole wheat penne pasta
4 cooked and cut up, large chicken breasts
1 1/2 C chicken broth
1 C heavy whipping cream
1 C half-and-half
1 C grated parmesan cheese
basil leaves to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Cook all vegetables, a few at a time, until al dente in 4T of butter and the olive oil in your skillet on the stove top.
Then remove all the vegetables and make your sauce.
Pour your chicken broth in skillet, along with your remaining 1 T of butter for about 1 min.
Add whipping cream, half-and-half, grated parmesan cheese.
Tear in your basil leaves.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Stir everything together at this point.
But the favorite dish that was made was a Oreo pudding dessert.
That recipe is coming up next.
Madison and I tried our hand at making pizza the other day.
I bought some pizza dough at Trader Joes and wanted to try it out.
One was called basil and garlic crust and the other was whole wheat.
Here’s a picture of how Madison’s pepperoni pizza on basil and garlic crust started out.
Big Ran didn’t think that it had enough pepperoni on it!
We just rolled out the crust in the shape that we wanted it, poured on the pizza sauce, and added our toppings.
The pizza that I made had hamburger, pepperoni, garlic, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
It was delicious.
Madison’s pizza just had pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.
That’s the way she likes it.
This is the 4wheel riding crew.

Here is the little guy who cried every time they came whizzing by.
