3-4 lb corned beef
1 med bag carrots
5-6 red potatoes
The corned beef comes with a seasoning packet. I put the seasoning in a large pot of water and then add the meat. I boil the meat until it is done....usually about 1 hour or so. Right before the meat is done I add a bag of carrots and some diced red potatoes and continue to boil. Right before the meat, carrots and potatoes are done I add a bunch of cabbage and continue to boil for about another 3-5 minutes. We don't like soggy cabbage so I don't boil it very long. Viola you are done! Enjoy!!

1-2 t Italian Seasoning
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
2 c Cottage Cheese
2-3 c mozzarella cheese
1/2 c cheddar cheese
1 box Lasagna Noodles
Boil lasagna noodles until they are tender. Rinse and set aside. Brown hamburger with Italian Seasoning. Add jar of spaghetti sauce to hamburger. Start by putting a layer of noodles in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, then put a layer of hamburger mixture and then cottage cheese and then top with cheese. Repeat the layers. Sprinkle the top with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bubbly. I usually serve with salad and garlic bread.

1 (12 ounce)bag elbow macaroni
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 (8 ounce)bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (8 ounce)bag shredded four cheese blend
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup chopped onions (walla walla or vidalia if available)
ground black pepper
****I added little pieces of ham to the mac and cheese as well****
Pre-heat oven to 400.
Bring water to boil, then add pasta. Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes (as directed on package).
While macaroni cooks, chop onions to desired consistency.
Drain pasta and rinse with hot water.
Place pasta back into pot with 2 tbsp butter and stir to cover so pasta does not stick.
Stir in onions and cheese.
Pour in heavy whipping cream and stir until nicely mixed.
Add garlic powder and black pepper to taste.
Scoop mixture into covered casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes, then check for desired bubbliness. ;).

1 egg yolk room temp.
1 Tbsp oil
3 1/2 Cups bread flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt 1/8 tsp white pepper - I just use regular
2 tsp yeast
Put all of the ingredients in your bread maker in the order given. Place on the Dough Setting.
After the dough is ready, place the dough on a lightly floured surface & cut into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into at least a 16" rope; twist the ends once then fold down over the loop. (I hope you can get that?) Place on a greased baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Brush with a glaze of one egg white & one Tablespoon water whisked together. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Cover gently & let rise until double- about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
Variation I have never tried but sounds amazing:
Add 1 cup think sliced pepperoni & 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese to the dough ingredients.
brush hot pretzel with butter then dip in cinnamon & sugar.
