Nov 19, 2015 7:35 AM

Ok Newfibrogirl gave me the Idea with her thread on shopping tips to start this one on Quick and Easy Recipe's for painful days and Holidays since those are right around the corner! I'll start off! 😁

Deep dish caramel cookie


2 pkgs of premade chocolate chip cookie dough square

1 pkg of chocolate chip morsales

1 pkg of Carmel bits (if you can't find them reg. Pkg of Carmel is fine unwrappe and put in microwave safe bowl)


Preheat oven to 350°

Spray the the bottom of a round with cake pan or ( I used a cast iron skillet)

Take first pale of chocolate chip cookie dough squares and smash them all over the bottom until it cover's the bottom totally making it look like one big cookie

Next take the melted Carmel put it in the pan as well make sure it covers a good portion of the bottom too.

Step 3: take the chocolate chip morsales and put those on top of the caramel.

Step 4: take the last pkge of the chocolate chip cookie dough squares and smash them all up into a circle shape then cover the top of the pan that has the rest of the ingredients in it and put in the oven for 30 mins.

Once done you can even add a little ice cream to top and enjoy!! 😉

Easy Macaroni & Cheese..... Preheat oven at 350 degrees

1 cup uncooked Macaroni

1/4 lb Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1/4 lb Mild Cheddar Cheese

4 Tablespoons melted Butter

2 Eggs, beaten

2 cups 2% Milk

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Black Pepper to taste

Cook Macaroni in boiling water 8 minutes (tender but not soft). Drain & let cool.

Spray baking dish with Pam. Pour 1/2 the Macaroni in dish and spread level. Cover noodles with 1/2 of each type cheese. Repeat layers.

Drizzle melted butter all around. Combine beaten eggs, milk & salt, then pour over the pasta/ cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and using a large spoon turn over noodles/cheese mixture several times to incorporate the cheese and have a creamier dish. Return to oven and bake 15-25 addtional minutes, until edges are browning. (This is original instructions. I cheat and mix everything in one bowl and then pour it into the baking dish, so I don't have to turn it midway through. 😉).

Option: You can use other types of cheese. You can also add more cheese, and crumble Ritz crackers over the top. Enjoy! 🙏🌼

Awesome ..moparmom.. Great topic idea..I've got one for after all meals.are made indrink this when I need to relax..
Relaxing night time tea
Two bags of chamomile tea
One bag green tea
One bag herbal fruit tea
Honey to taste

Boil a medium saucepan of water with tea bags only. Boil for 20 to 30 min on medium
Remove bags
Add honey start off with one cup add more if its not sweet enough or less if to sweet.
Stir the honey and let sit on stove reduce heat to medium low or setting 3 let sit for 15 min then reduce heat to low or you can turn off and let pot sit to slowly cool.
You want to make sure the honey has totally cooked and melted . if you cool the tea to fast you will have lumps of honey floating in your tea.
Once u get to the lower setting tea is ready to drink if u want it hot. This tea is also wonderful cold.
I consider this easy beacue u can walk away from it and just check on it while you do other things or even sit and rest.
Just don't forget about all together.. Lol I've done that and boiled it to an empty pot. Lol

Hope you guys like it

Flappy you can stop in and see me, I m close to Athen, UGA. And for easy veggies, I get root ones and just roast them after coating them in butter and spices. Cut them in bite size and start with the longest cooking one such as carrots then add the turnips, parsnips., finally after 20 mins add red peppers, onion,mushrooms and finisj to how soft you want them. I toss with melted butter in a zip bag. I also tell everyone the parshnips are gormet white carrots lol

Zetarlov, I'm in central GA but my dad lives south of Dublin, 90 minutes away. I've got friends from NE GA that keep begging us to come up, but I haven't been able to hold up to three traveling 3 hr one way. I've been wanting to try parsnips but had no idea of how to prepare them. Thank-you! I may try this on my family at Thanksgiving. 🙏🌼

Not holiday but definitely help for painful days is a local, to me, lady who has a blog. I will put the link below but it could go either way if it will work. I am including the main link because it has a lot of great information but go to the link for freezer cooking.

The second link is 5 crockpot meals with 4 ingredients. Of course I got rid of mine years ago so we are looking to get another because my husband has already told me he wants the BBQ applesauce chicken and how easy is that?

Get a steak, coat it in salt and pepper, cook it about 5 min each side. It's deliciously simple 😉😋😘
