Special Cheeseburgers

1 pound ground beef
15 to 20 crackers, salted or unsalted, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon California-style garlic salt
2 teaspoons steak sauce, any brand
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper

Mix all ingredients together. Form into hamburger patties. Fry or grill. Add cheese slice to each hamburger just before removing from heat. Makes four large cheeseburgers. Note: These are best when grilled. Yields 6 servings.

Strawberry Cake

1 pkg. plain white cake mix
1 box strawberry gelatin
1 cup mashed whole strawberrys (if frozen let it thaw in frig day before)
1 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs

Preheat oven 350*

In a large bowl add cake mix, strawberry gelatin powder ( 1 small box of Jello), mashed strawberry, oil, milk, and eggs. Mix on low with a blender. Pour in 2 buttered/floured round pans.

Bake for 25 or till done.


Frosting Strawberry and Cream Cheese Icing

1 pk. cream cheese (room temp.)

1 stick of butter ( room temp.)

3 1/2 cups powered sugar

3/4 cup mashed strawberries

Combine cream cheese and butter mix on low till well blended.

Add sugar and strawberry and blend.

I like to garnish the top of my cake with extra sliced strawberry's.

Wait 4-5 hrs. before slicing, let it sit in the frig. and it'll hold better when slicing.

Quiche Muffins

1 (16-ounce) carton cottage cheese
3 egg whites
5 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 green onions, chopped
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place cottage cheese in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Process egg whites in food processor until foamy. Add next 5 ingredients and process until smooth. Add egg mixture to cottage cheese. Stir in cheese, onions and bacon. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full and bake 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are light brown. Yield: about a dozen or so muffins.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
