Refrigerated cookie dough for the bottom crust You have the goodness and texture of cheesecake in a cookie. You can also use cherry pie filling, if desired.

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar

This morning as I was getting dressed, I was missing one of my socks. I thought I had gotten a clean pair of socks out but when I got ready to put them on there was only one. I looked on the bed to see if I had dropped it but still didn't find it. I looked under my bed and there was my sock and two beady eyes looking back at me. I reached for the sock and the furry animal grabbed my missing sock at the same time as I did. Little One and I played tug of war under the bed with my sock, and he won. I had to chase him all over the house to get my sock back. I ended up making noise with his treats bah and had to trade a treat to get my sock back. I could have sworn that he was smiling at me as he was eating his treat. I am assuming Little One is much better by his playful actions.

This rhubarb dessert is sure a lot easier to make than a pie and is really wonderful.
It's actually like a bread pudding.

3 cups stale bread cubes
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter

This salad is really a good one. I've yet to make it when am not asked for the recipe, so if you take it anywhere, I'd advise you take some copies of the recipe along to hand out.

Three Bean Wacky Mac Salad Recipe

1 can (14.5 oz.) green beans, drained
1 can (14.5 oz.) red kidney beans, drained
1 can (14.5 oz.) wax beans, drained
1 cup chopped sweet onion
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup Canola oil
2/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper, to taste (optional)

Prepare Wacky Mac pasta according to the directions on package and rinse with cold water. Meanwhile, combine beans and onions in small bowl. In a separate small bowl vinegar and oil and slowly add in sugar to dissolve. Add drained Wacky Mac and vinegar mixture to beans and add tomatoes and salt and pepper (if desired).

This easy meatloaf is really a good one, and people will be surprised when you slice it and they see a slice of hard boiled egg inside each serving!

Surprise Stuffed Meat Loaf Recipe

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup warm water
1-1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
4 hard cooked eggs
(I also add a little pepper, garlic powder and a few "splashes"
Worcestershire sauce)

Combine soup mix, eggs, ketchup and water and add bread crumbs and beef; mix well.

Spread half of the mixture into a 9x5" bread pan. Press whole hard cooked eggs lightly into center of meat mixture, arranging end to end; cover with remaining mixture. Bake 1 hour at 375, or until done.

To Nancy and friends:

I am submitting my recipe for Porcupine Meatballs.

Porcupine Meatballs Recipe

1 lb lean ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 - 14.5 oz cans of Amy's Organic Cream of Tomato Soup (can get from if can't find in supermarket)
1 cup water

In a large bowl, combine the meat, rice, 1/2 cup of water and onion. Blend in celery salt, garlic powder and pepper. Mix well and shape in to meatballs (I use ice cream scoop).
Place in a large roast pan covered with aluminum foil (for easy clean up) and place in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until cooked.

In the meantime, spray a slow cooker with Pam. I cook them on high setting. Add tomato soup and water and heat while meatballs are baking. When meatballs are done, place them in slow cooker and cook for about 4 hours on high setting, stirring from time to time. It makes a lot of meatballs. I place in a rectangular plastic container and place in refrigerator. My family can't stop eating them.

p.s. They make a very soft meatball. You can add a cup of whole wheat breadcrumb to make them firmer.
