    The broccoli salad recipe that was posted in the last week or so is really good and easy to make. No cooking involved!

    1- Sm Jar Grape Jelly
    Mix and heat in a shallow electric fyrer, Add and simmer
    1- Bag Pre Made Meat Balls w/ tooth picks

    Wrapped Pickles

    Lunch meat of your choice - turkey or ham or other
    Cream cheese - softened or tub of soft cream cheese
    Pickles - sweet or dill (I usually get small sized pickles)

    take a slice (or two if thin) of lunch meat
    pat dry with paper towel if needed
    spread with cream cheese
    put on pickle
    roll up
    slice to bit size

    All you do is wrap smokies in puff pastry and bake? Sounds easy!

    I like to take fruit salad -- pineapple chunks, cantalope balls and strawberries. Low cal and very tasty -- and easy to make.

    This is insanely good:

    PUMPKIN CRUNCH CAKE
    * 1 15oz can pumpkin puree
    * 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    * 3 eggs
    * 1 1/4 cups white sugar
    * 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix (Spice Cake is also good)
    * 1 cup chopped pecans
    * 3/4 cup butter, melted
    * 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed (or vanilla ice cream)

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease one 9x13 inch baking pan.

    2. Combine the pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Mix well and spread into the prepared pan.

    3. Sprinkle the yellow cake mix over the top of the pumpkin mixture and pat down. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the top of the cake mix then drizzle the melted butter all over the top.

    4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour but no longer than 1 hour and 20 minutes. Top cooled cake with whipped topping or ice cream when ready to serve.

    Here's another one that's delicious and super easy:

    SOPAPILLA CHEESECAKE

    2 cans crescent rolls
    1-8oz cream cheese
    1 c. sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Mix together:
    c. sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 stick of butter (melted)

    Spread crescent rolls on bottom of buttered 9x13 pan.

    Blend sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese. Spread cream cheese mixture on bottom layer of rolls.

    Take the other package of rolls and spread on top of the cream cheese.

    Drizzle the melted butter, sugar and cinnamon over the top.

    Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.




    There are a bazillion variations on this recipe. I've added a half a jar of prepared Key Lime Pie Filling or a can of Cherry or Apple Pie Filling in between the cream cheese and the top crust and any of them are delicious. There are savory variations which omit the sugar and cinnamon and instead substitute things like salt and herbs, ham or prosciutto, sun-dried tomatoes and Greek olives and olive oil.

    Mushroom and Spinach Quiche.

    One or one an a half cup of shredded cheese (I use Mozzarella)
    4 eggs
    2 cups fresh spinach
    1 medium onion chopped
    1 cup mushrooms, chopped
    black pepper and salt
    bacon: two golden strips in tiny bits (optional)


    Mix altogether. Pour it in a pie crusts. (two)
    Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown on top.

    This is delicious. People always asks me for the recipe when I bring this dish to a pot luck.
