The story behind this recipe is one young mac who loves Mac and Cheese. You see my son just loves it. He also wants to learn to cook. I decided the safest way for him to cook is using the crockpot. What I didn’t know is you could easily freeze this meal so making multiple and placing them in the freezer makes this a great crockpot freezer meal. The other thing that is great about this recipe is it is simple and requires very little time. The best part is my son made it and all the kids eat it. It is a great side and a super main course. This could be your party staple this summer or the comfort meal you crave in the fall.
Place in the crockpot for 3.5 hrs

I love healthy stuffed peppers. The story behind this recipe is I was hired on my site www.madamedeals.com to come up with a recipe using Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles. I did. It is called healthy stuffed peppers . You can click on the blue link to see! It was so good I headed back into the kitchen and created another easy to follow recipe.
This is what you will need to create this recipe:
rice and beans I used caribbean flavor
Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles
You will need to cut the pepper and remove the seeds.
Then you will need to place the rice and bean in the bottom. I gave it several healthy scoops for my healthy stuffed bell peppers
Then you will add in some of the Salsa
A tiny bit of garlic. Then I cooked them in the oven at 400 for 20-25 minutes. I put water in the dish around 1/2 up the dish and placed them in the oven .
Finally I added the cheese and let that melt it took around 5 minutes. Then you eat them and they sure are awesome!
I love appetizers. This is the story behind this recipe. I went on a date with my husband to a tapas bar. I ordered these and then I had to order another plate. They were so good I couldn’t believe that they were so easy to make. These easy goat cheese appetizers can be made with turkey bacon or with normal bacon. I made mine with turkey bacon because that is what my son likes.
Ingredients for easy goat cheese appetizer:
and Brandy if you wish. This is optional but wonderful!
You will need to remove the pits from the dates.
This is how I do it. I put the spoon in the date and then I pull it out.
Then stuff the dates with the goat cheese
I wrapped the bacon around the date and then I cut the bacon
Then you place a toothpick through the date.
Then you should place the dates on a tray.
Then I brush the bacon wrapped dates with brandy. I place them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes or until the bacon is crisp. You may have to turn them over.

I had no idea how easy it was to cook an Acorn Squash. I mean it looks so fancy. I decided it can’t be that hard and I was right. It takes just 5 minutes to prepare and about one hour to back. Then you place it on the plate and people think. Wow! She is a marvelous cook. The site is called cooking in bliss and our tag line is every recipe has a story.
This is the story of the :
I once went to a very fancy dining establishment with my Father it was the Dupont hotel in Delaware. I ordered a grand dish and the side was Acorn Squash. I ordered it feeling very fancy but I couldn’t image how they were going to cook acorns. I really didn’t put together that an acorn squash wasn’t the same thing that a squirrel ate. I assumed they were on in the same. I just thought it was a type of acorn. I mean we were in a fancy place and who knows they douse everything in truffle oil there. I wasn’t sure that that meant either. I was baffled when my fillet arrived with this huge thing on my plate. I kept looking for the acorn. I finally asked where the acorn squash was which resulted in a huge point to this object on my plate. I have to say from then on it has been a favorite of mine. I always have ordered it when we go out. I always assumed it must be hard to prepare but I was wrong. It is so easy.
This is how it is done:
1) Preheat oven to 400°F.
2) Take out a cookie sheet with a lip.
5) Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff in the center of each half. 6)Score the insides of each half several times with a sharp knife or a fork will also work.
6) Then you will need to coat the inside of each half acorn half with the 1/2 a Tbsp of butter. Add a Tbsp of brown sugar to the cavity of each half. Dribble on a teaspoon of maple syrup to each half.
7) Bake in the oven for 1 hour .
8) You will know you are done when the squash is very soft and the tops are browned.
