    Since Helen mentioned this the other day, I went and did some searching to find as many of the recipes we have shared so Helen can delet old posts if she whats too. But if I have missed something please add it to this list.
    Helen, since your the mod, and have searched the posts anyway, please add anything I have missed. I got everything off the crockpot thread,and the more recent recipes for the tight budget thread.
    I think it would be nice if we tried to keep recipes in one or two threads. That way we could find them.

    Although I posted a lot of the recipes, they are not all mine, I picked them from different posts on the BB and posted them here so all recipes would be in one place. I made the mistake of not adding who posted which recipes, so if you see something you know you posted and would like your naem added to it, please pm me with the name of the reicpe and I'll make sure you get credit.

    Try a pork roast with garlic. When it falls apart, you can mix in barbecue sauce (or my own SPECIAL recipe) and make enough barbecue to feed an army -- or an hungry teen-ager.

    Here is one we enjoy...

    Take 4-5 pork chops,salt and pepper,place in crock pot with 1/2 coke(as in coca cola) and 1/2 cup barbeque sauce. Cook on low about 7 hours....it is delicious and very tender. I serve this with white rice and green veggies(green beans) or nice dinner salad.

    Cook it overnight with onion soup mix. Cook the potatoes and carrots in a kettle, then add the cooked roast and a can of mushroom soup and let it cook down. Yummy.

    Crockpot Enchiladas

    1 lb. ground beef
    1 med. onion chopped
    1/2 green pepper
    16 oz. can pinto beans,drained
    15 oz. can black beans,drained
    1 can diced tomato w/chilies,not drained
    1/3 c. water
    1 tsp.chili powder
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    flour tortillas to fit your crockpot

    Brown beef, drain grease off, add all other ingredients and simmer 10 minutes.

    scoop 1/3-1/2 cup of mixture into crockpot, cover with 1/4 cup shredded cheese, cover with tortilla. Repeat procedure until you run out of meat mixture. It swells so don't go all the way to the top. Cook in crockpot for 3-5 hours


    Probably our favorite crock pot recipe is taco stack. You layer corn tortillas (cut them in fourths or sixths), ground beef (raw), tomatoes, and cheddar cheese soup mixed with taco seasoning. I usually make 12 layers (this fills my pot all the way). I use 40 tortillas, 2-3 pounds of meat, 3 cans of soup, 1 pack of taco seasoning and 6 medium tomatoes. Layer in this order: beef, tortillas, soup stuff, tomatoes.


    Potato Soup

    6 cups cubed peeled potatoes
    5 cups water
    2 cups chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup thinly sliced carrot
    1/4 cup margarine (I don't put this in)
    4 tsp chicken bouillon
    2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 can (12oz) evaporated milk
    3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (don't fret if you don't have any)
    snipped chives (optional)

    In large slow cooker, combine the first nine ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 7 hours or until the vegetables are tender. Add milk and parsley; mix well. Cover and cook 30 to 60 minutes longer, or until heated through. Garnish with chives.

    Sometimes I will put crumbled bacon in this! Yummy! And serve with fresh bread.

    My family loves shepherd pie. I brown some ground meat and an onion for every pound. Spread it on the bottom of a pan. The kids sprinkle frozen corn and I top it with mashed potatoes (but use more butter, salt, and pepper then you would if you were to make it for a regular dish of potatoes.) Then I bake it for 30 minutes on 350.


    "Bayou Blend"-a seafood casserole:
    1(8oz)cream cheese
    1 stick butter

    1 Tblsp.Tabasco
    garlic powd.to taste
    1/2 Tblsp.redpepper
    1&1/2 cups cooked rice
    grated chedd cheese

    Melt crm cheese & stick butter together, set aside. In the 1Tb.butter, saute' ons, celery, & pepper. Add shrimp to this & cook 'til shrimp turns pink. Mix w/crm cheese-butter mixture. Add remaining ingred. Top w/grated cheese. Bake @350 'til bubbly.


    This is a concoction I make when I have leftover rice and ground beef.

    Rice about 3 cups(depending on family size)
    Ground beef (any amount will do)
    1 diced Green Pepper
    2 cans diced Tomatoes
    salt, pepper, garlic, soy sauce-to taste

    Put in 9x13 baking pan and sprinkle with cheese if you have it. Bake 350deg until heated through.

Season steaks with salt if desired, serve with warm vegetables. Makes 4 servings.


    Here is my recipe for Vegetable Beef Stew:

    Thai Pumpkin Stir Fry

    2 cups pumpkin, sliced into thin strips 1" x 1-1/2"
    3 cloves garlic, sliced thin
    2 jalapeno peppers, sliced thin
    1/2 cup scallions (use white and green sections) cut into 1" lengths
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. white pepper
    1 tsp. brown sugar
    light soy sauce to taste
    1 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
    1/4 lime

    Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add the chili and garlic and fry until the garlic turns golden. Add the pumpkin, toss to coat with oil, and add enough water to just barely cover the pumpkin. Add sugar, salt, pepper and soy sauce. Check seasonings. Turn the heat to low, cover and cook until pumpkin is soft. If it begins to dry out add enough water to make a little sauce, checking seasonings. When pumpkin is cooked through, add the scallions and squeeze a bit of lime juice over the mixture. Cook for 30 seconds more and remove from the heat. Serve with rice.

    Serves: 2 - 4

    Preparation time: 20 mins


    Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

    1 acorn squash
    2-3 apples
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 pat of margarine
    dash of nutmeg
    dash of salt, optional

    Slice the acorn squash in half, and scrape out the seeds and the strings. Place face down in casserole pan filled with 1/2 inch of water and place in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. While the squash is steaming there, peel and slice the the apples and mix in the brown sugar. Take the squash out of the oven, place face up, and fill the cavities with the apple mixture, add a pat of margarine to each and top with a shake or two of nutmeg as taste dictates. Cover very lightly with foil, and bake until the apples and the squash are soft and cooked, approximately another 1/2 hour.

    Serves: 3-4.


    Chicken Curry

    Boil chicken till tender(depend on how many you want to feed
    4T. margarine/butter
    3T. flour
    1c. milk
    3c. chicken broth
    salt and pepper
    1t. garlic powder
    1 1/2T-2T. curry. more if you like it strong

    Melt butter, add flour, and mix well, add the milk and broth, stir to prevent lumping, add salt and pepper,and curry powder. Stir till thick and buddly. Cut up cooked chicken and add to the curry mixture. Serve over rice.
    Some add in that would be good, onion, mushroom,frozen peas. Sprinkle the top with raisins.

    Or if you don't cook meat, you could just make the curry sauce and have it over rice or noodles.
    Good and cheap.

    Fast and Easy Chicken

    one chicken, cut up as desired, skinned or not as desired

    place it in an oven pan, rack or not, as desired

    Pour some Italian dressing over it

    Generously sprinkle grated Parmesan over it.

    Bake somewhere around 350 until it's done.

    Don't waste the heat -- put potatoes in, too.

    Ranch dressing works, too. Haven't tried Catalina (a type of French dressing), but I bet that would work, too.

    I had forgotten there weree recipes on the making it on one income thread so I grabbed all of those too.

    Cream Soup Substute

    2c. nonfat dry milk
    3/4c. cornstarch
    1/4c. chicken or beef bouillon
    2T. dried mined onin(I would think the cheaper onion powder is cheaper)
    1t. dried thyme
    1t. basil
    1/2t pepper
    Mix all together and store in a covered container. Use as a substuite for creamed souops in casseroles. To use, mix 1 1/4c. cold water, and 1/3c. mix in a small saucepan. Add 1t. margarine. Cook until thickened.
    I plan on adding a little chopped mushrooms with the beef flavor.

    Chicken Cornbread casserole

    Boiled cut up chicken(whatever amount you like, recipe calls for one whole, we didn't use that much)
    1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can cream of celery soup(a good use for that substitute)
    1 1/2c. left over chicken broth(I used the rest of my broth for dumplings, two meal in one)
    3 hard boiled eggs(I actually forgot to add these, soe you can leave them out of use only 1 or 2)
    1/2 onion sliced
    cornbread batter(the amount is up to you)

    Mix together and heat the soups, onion, broth, onion and egg. Pour batter in a casserole dish (I spray mine with cooking spray), put the chicken on top the batter, and pour the soup mix over the top. Bake 375 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

    Pinto bean casserole

    2c. pinto beans(more if you need them)
    1 pkg spanish rice mix(since it calls for salsa, I might use just plain rice)
    1 jar salsa
    1 pkg taco seasoning mix
    recipe calls for 1 pound hamburger, thats optional I would think.
    shredded cheese(I use cheaper sliced, I buy that big bulk 5 pound cheese)

    Spray casserole, layer beans, prepared rice, mix all other ingredients, and pour over beans and rice, cover with cheese. Bake 35 minutes @ 350

    Chili Dog pie

    2 1/2 c. baking mix(like bisquick, I have a recipe to make that too)
    3T. mustard
    6T water
    1 pkg. hot dogs
    2 cans chili(Use leftover chili, or spice up your left over pinto beans)
    shredded cheese
    Preheat oven to 425, grease a 13x9 casserole. Combine baking mix, mustard and water, and press down in the casserole, quarte hotdogs length wise, and then crosswise. Place hotdogs on dough. Spoon chili over hotdogs, sprinkle with cheese. Bake 20 minutes.

    half of a small cabbage (diced into 2" peices)

    I also steam cabbage with other random veggies found in our fridge. Usually fresh carrots, frozen peas, fresh green beans. . For this one, I cut the cabbage in wedges. I boil a small amount of water ( I guess it is about 1 inch high) with butter, salt and pepper, add the veggies and more pepper and let it go oh high heat mixing a couple of times, until the veggies are bright, hot but crisp
