Calico Beans – (Slow Cooker Recipe )

If you like chili, or baked beans, you will enjoy this Calico Beans recipe.
It is very tasty and inviting on a cold winter day, or at a barbecue. You will not be slaving over the stove mixing it endlessly, since once you are done with all the prep work, it cooks slowly on its own, in the slow cooker. The smell of fried bacon and barbecue sauce plays games with everyone’s taste buds.

Fruit Filled Crepes

One of my favorite recipes from my mom, is a recipe for crepes. She usually filled them with creamed, and sweetened, farmer’s cheese. I like my crepes filled with fresh fruits, or fruit preserves ( I use Smucker’s Sugar Free Fruit Preserves), served with fruit syrup (also by Smucker’s), and whipped cream. This dish may be served as a light main course, or as a dessert. Makes about 8 crepes.

Texas Caviar – Super Bowl Party Vinaigrette

This is a very simple, light, refreshing, and colorful party salad.
I received many compliments from my guests, especially the ladies, at our Super Bowl Party last year. This vinaigrette also makes a great dish for office parties, barbecues, baby showers, and it is admired by my vegetarian friends.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip Recipe – Super Bowl Sunday

Even though I was an avid soccer mom for many years, my family enjoys watching football, and I prepare lots of tasty snacks during football season. Pizza and chicken wings are always on the menu, but Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip is a must. It is a delicious, quick, and very easy to make dish, and you never have to worry about storing left overs, since there won’t be any.

Mrs. Z’s Deviled Eggs

If you like deviled eggs, you will agree that every cook has his/her own special touch in making them. The main recipe is basically always the same, but everyone adds something extra to make it their own. This particular recipe was created by me personally, and the men in our family enjoy these Deviled Eggs very much.
