Southern Plate

Welcome to the October 15th, 2008 edition of simple family favorites.

Kelly presents Foodie Friday: The Most Simple Soup Ever posted at Grounded Fitness, saying, "This three ingredient soup is fast, cheap, healthy and delicious. www.groundedfitness.com"

Woman Tribune presents Healthy Three-Pepper Pasta Topping posted at Woman Tribune.

Traci presents Soups Gourmet Finds™ - Food, Wine & Fine Living posted at Gourmet Finds™ - Food, Wine & Fine Living, saying, "Turkey Mushroom Soup is both tasty, and friendly on the waistline, at just 120 calories per serving."

Stephanie presents Beans and Wieners posted at Stop the Ride!

Mediamonkey presents How to make Shepherds Pie posted at How to: tips, tricks & recipes, saying, "Shepherds pie and Cottage pie are traditional methods for using leftover roasted meat with mashed potato as pie crust. While a variety of meats can be used for this dish, it is traditionally made from beef or lamb with the lamb version being known as shepherd's pie and the beef version known as cottage pie. Here is my favorite recipe for shepherd's pie."

Tomato Lady presents Homemade Veggie Burgers and Burger Buns posted at Little House in the Suburbs. "This recipe is a copycat version of Houston's Restaurant's Veggie Burger, a favorite of mine. It is a big improvement over the frozen grocery v-burger, and the ingredients are relatively inexpensive and easy to find.
The buns are from a recipe I have been making for a while and find pretty easy (for homemade bread)--no kneading, for instance. They can be made with your preferred proportion of whole wheat/bread flour. I go half and half, but 100% whole wheat would work fine."

Christy Jordan presents Dishpan Cookies ~Have you baked for anyone lately?~ posted at Southern Plate, saying, "These are a GREAT cookie to give away. They travel well, freeze well, stay fresh longer than most cookies just sealed in a jar on the counter, and they also mail well. Even better, if you like crisp cookies, just bake them two minutes or so longer and you'll have them! If you like chewy, bake them just until done. When was the last time you baked for anyone?"

Christy Jordan presents Sweet Tea: The Elixir Of The South posted at Southern Plate, saying, "The drink that puts the drawl in our speech and the pep in our step. It has been known to be fed to our babies in their bottles as soon as they can have something other than formula. Nothing, I mean nothing, is more Southern than sweet tea."

Christy Jordan presents Hobo Packets ~This Week's Quick and Easy Meal!~ posted at Southern Plate, saying, "This recipe can also be modified to use chicken or even pork, but ground beef is my personal favorite due to its taste (I'm just so used to hobo packets with ground beef!), its convenience, and its cost. This can even make a great Vegetarian meal simply by omitting meat and adding more veggies! Frugal and filling, the whole family loves customizing their own Hobo Packet!"

Dora presents Y-2K Hippie: 10/05/08, A recipe and review using Country Bob's Sauce. posted at Knitting, horses, and my family..

Tina presents, Ophelia’s Banana Bread posted at Mommy’s Kitchen, saying , This Banana Bread recipe is my absolute favorite recipe for two reasons one because it is so yummy and two it's so easy to make because it utilizes a cake mix which simplifies the whole recipe.

Tina also presents, Cody’s Chili Cornbread Casserole, The first time I made the Chili Cornbread Casserole my family devoured it!!! so i thought to myself this recipe is definitely a keeper. I always have it on my menu rotation not only because its easy to throw together but its just so darn good. This recipe is perfect if you are feeding a large family. Ok now what would dinner be without dessert!!! Tina at Mommy’s Kitchen also has a quick and easy recipe for Strawberry Soda Pop Cake. This cake never last long in my house. Strawberry soda pop is one of the ingredients which makes this cake super good it also has a light fluffy cool whip topping, you really need to give this a try.

Ilana (aka the Hip Hostess) presents Crustless Spinach Quiche « The Hip Hostess posted at The Hip Hostess, saying, "This recipe is simply delicious. It can be made ahead and leftovers are great for lunch or dinner."

Cyndi presents Apple dumplings for the fall posted at Busy Family Meal Planning, saying, "Nothing says autumn quite like apple desserts!"

ZestyCook presents Healthy Homemade French Fries posted at ZestyCook. "If you're anything like me - you love french fries. Here you will find a simple step by step set of instructions on how to create delicious homemade french fries that everyone in the family will enjoy and are not that bad for your waistline."

NAOMI presents BRITISH KIDS SAY NO TO VEGETABLES posted at Diary From England, saying, "Here's a great recipe for a tasty tomato sauce with five (yes five!) vegetables hiding inside! It can be served with pasta, as a topping for pizza and also works well when served as a sauce with chicken. Ideal for busy mums as it's suitable for freezing and only takes 10 minutes to prepare! Good luck with your carnival!"

Sandy presents Low Fat Butter Chicken Curry Recipe posted at Meet Chefs And Cookbook Authors.

Erin @ $5 Dinners presents $5 Dinners: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins posted at $5 Dinner Mom."It made 12 regular size muffins and 6 jumbo muffins! The boys enjoyed these as "breakfast dessert" after they ate their cereal! Can you have dessert after breakfast?!?"

Laura from Real Mom Kitchen offers us a great Freezer Hash brown Casserole She adds "Freezer meals are pretty popular right now. We just tried this recipe that I got from my sister-in-law. So delicious."

That concludes the second edition. Thank you to everyone who participated.

This looks like so much tasty fun! I have to admit though that must not be as advanced as I thought I was because I am unsure of how this works; submission, etc.

I did read your post but can you give me just a little more 411 on it please?I apologize in advance for being so out of the loop on this.


P.S. the birthday boy says thank you for his birthday wishes you sent him. that was so sweet of you.

Hi! I found your site looking for a recipe for Sopapilla Cheesecake and have been reading for hours! lol - I would LOVE the recipe for the hot-water cornbread on the right side of your page, but for some reason it's not coming up for me. Can you point me in the right direction? My mom used to make that stuff all the time!

Oh, I'm Amy and I'm in Carrollton, not too far from you!

Hi Nichole I am so glad you made a submission to the carnival. It is really fun to find new meals to make.

Amy, Thank you for pointing out the problem on my linking for the hot water cornbread. I think its all fixed now so you can print it off. Your right i am pretty close to you. I am glad you are enjoying my site. I love the Sopapilla Cheesecake it is just to die for. I think i need to make it again.
