Yummy fudge sauce

Hot fudge sundaes are probably one of the most amazing foods ever. Store bought fudge has nothing on this yummy sauce :)

Melt in a double boiler
*1/3 c. butter
*2 squares unsweetened chocolate

*1 lg can evaporated milk
*3 c. sugar
*1 T corn syrup
*dash of salt

Stir and cook till it begins to thicken. Pour over a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and enjoy! It stores in the fridge for a while (if it lasts that long)

Enchilada casserole

I was wondering about this recipe because the pork and beans sounded weird but it was so tasty!! It tastes good heated up for leftovers too!

*1 1/2 lbs ground beef
*1 quart tomato juice (I didn't have this much and used less and it was perfect. I wouldn't use the whole quart)
*1 packet of enchilada seasoning mix
*1 can pork and beans (weird I know but trust me on this)
*corn tortillas
*grated cheese

Brown ground beef in a large pan. Add enchilada seasoning mix, pork and beans, and tomato juice. In a 9x13 pan put a layer of corn tortillas. Put meat mixture on top then more tortillas then top with grated cheese. Bake at 350 for about 30 min. Serve with sour cream and salsa.

Best ever apple crisp

Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts ever!! I love this recipe because it is so easy and tastes so good!! I always eat it for breakfast the morning after I make it :)

*4 cups apples peeled and sliced
*1 t cinnamon
*1/2 c water (i usually do a little less)

Place sliced apples in a 8x8 square pan. Mix water and cinnamon together and pour over apples.


*3/4 c flour
*1 cup sugar
*7 T butter (make sure you use real butter not margarine)

Cut together and sprinkle over the apples and bake at 350 for about an hour. This is the best when it is still warm with vanilla ice cream on it. This topping can be used on any kind of crisp (berries, peaches, etc).

Stuffed Pizza Rolls

I got this recipe at Our Best Bites. It's one of those recipes where you think, "Why didn't I think of that?" The recipe is so simple, and yet so delicious.

Stuffed Pizza Rolls (Ranch, Chicken and Bacon style)

1 roll pizza dough (can use refrigerated/frozen or make your own)
1 packet ranch dressing mix
2 TB parmesan cheese
1 TB olive oil or melted butter
Cheddar cheese, cubed (can substitute other cheese)
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
3/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to recommended temperature on pizza dough (usually about 400-425).

Take 1 tsp of ranch dressing mix and combine it with 1 1/2 TB parmesan. Set aside. Combine remaining ranch mix with milk and mayo and place in fridge to chill.

Roll out pizza dough into a large square, about 12inches by 8 inches. Use a pizza cutter to cut it into about 24 squares. In each square, place some chicken, bacon, and cheese.

When toppings are placed, pick up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings, forming a ball. Place the completed rolls seam side down in a greased casserole dish. Brush with melted butter or oil and top with parmesan/ranch mixture ( I also added italian seasoning to mine).

The cooking time depends on the type of dough you are using but is usually about 10-20 minutes. Check the rolls after 10. They're done when they are golden brown on top.

Dip rolls in ranch dressing.


You can do this with other pizza ingredients, too. You could do pepperoni and cheese and sprinkle italian seasoning on top of the rolls and dip in marinara. Endless possibilities. Enjoy!
