Hey, I'm looking for some delicious new (EASY) recipes to try. If you have any you'd be willing to share, please let me know! And, if you're one of those amazing people who cooks all the time, preferably crock pot recipies. ;)
Aaannndd...I mean, it just wouldn't be fair if I didn't share one or two of my own favorites. =)
Thanks in advance!!!
Easiest chicken pot pie EVER
2 pie crusts
1 can cream o' soup
1 can vegall
1 lb chicken
1 tbsp sour cream
Mix together then spoon into pie crusts. Bake on 375 for 25 minutes.
2 lbs ground beef
2 cans ranch style beans
1 can chili no beans
1 can rotel
1 lb velvetta
Small thing of whipping cream
Rice or Doritos to top
Brown the ground beef and drain. Add the rest of the ingredients (minus the whipping cream and Doritos) to the ground beef and heat over the stove. When thoroughly heated, turn burner off and add the whipping cream. Stir until mixed. Serve with Doritos (which can be crunched up and sprinkled on top or used as a dip) or over rice.
2 cups finely ground graham crackers
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 pound cream cheese, 2 (8-ounce) blocks, softened
1 cup sugar
1 pint sour cream
1 lemon, zested
1 dash vanilla extract
For the Crust:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the crust ingredients with a fork until evenly moistened. Lightly coat the bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the crumbs into the pan and, using the bottom of a measuring cup or the smooth bottom of a glass, press the crumbs down into the base and 1-inch up the sides. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
For the Filling:
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on low speed for 1 minute until smooth and free of any lumps. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and continue to beat slowly until combined. Gradually add sugar and beat until creamy, for 1 to 2 minutes. Add sour cream, lemon zest, and vanilla. Periodically scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beaters. The batter should be well mixed but not over-beaten.
Pour the filling into the crust-lined pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Set the cheesecake pan on a large piece of aluminum foil and fold up the sides around it. Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan. Pour boiling water into the roasting pan until the water is about halfway up the sides of the cheesecake pan; the foil will keep the water from seeping into the cheesecake. Bake for 45 minutes.
The cheesecake should still jiggle (it will firm up after chilling), so be careful not to overcook. Let cool in pan for 30 minutes. Chill in the refrigerator, loosely covered, for at least 4 hours. Loosen the cheesecake from the sides of the pan by running a thin metal spatula around the inside rim. Unmold and transfer to a cake plate. Using a spatula spread a layer of Warm Lemon Blueberry topping over the surface.
Slice the cheesecake with a thin, non-serrated knife that has been dipped in hot water. Wipe dry after each cut.
(I'll be honest; I usually don't do that whole roasting pan nonsense. I throw it in the oven without the water stuff, and it does just fine.)
Warm Lemon Blueberry Topping:
1 pint blueberries
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 tablespoons sugar
In a small saucepan add all the ingredients and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or so until the fruit begins to break down slightly. Leave to cool before spreading on cheesecake.
