Recipes Help!!

Remember my goal this year to be an awesome cook and baker?
Well I am not doing too bad, but I am not yet fabulous..
Especially in the banking department.. For some reason I just struggle with liking it.
I have had this struggle for 19 years. I want to like it but for some reason I have a mental block that stops me. Maybe I should go to therapy and figure it all out.

Now here is where you can help me..
Send me your favorite no fail recipe so I can try it!
I promise to try every recipe and then spotlight it on my blog.


Last night I tried my friend Shaina's potato Alfredo.. My kids scarfed it up in no time flat. It was a huge hit!
Here is the recipe.

Potato Alfredo
.....
Peel and Cut about 8 potatoes into long strips (like steak fries)
...
Combine 1 chopped onion, 2 Tbsp melted butter, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 2 tsp thyme, 1 tsp garlic, 1 cup Parmesan cheese, and 2 cups of cream in a bowl.
...
Add potatoes to cream mixture and thoroughly coat.
...
Place in a greased baking pan and bake uncovered for 1 hour, at 400 degrees, or until potatoes
cooked through.
Easy easy and so yummy.
I cant wait to see what kind of cooking baking yummy resipes you all send me to try.

I have the BEST Spiral ham glaze in the world. I got it off of martha Stewarts show back in 90 something. It was A guests recipie but I cant remember which guest.

Spiral Ham
pineapple
merichino cherries
dark brown sugar
Vernors ginger ale ( any will do but this does have the best flavor)
French's mustard

Mix the last 3 ingredients together with just enough mustard to taste it but not overpower.Should be thick and not too runny. It wont use a whole can. Baste often over ham. Pineapple and cherries we put on in the beginning because my family loves them soaked in the glaze and browned.

They BEG me to make this and it cracks me up as it is so easy.

do you like pork tenderloin, I have a good recipe. Though to feed your family you'd probably need to double/triple the recipe. actually i have lots of good recipes, if you click on my side bar look at old menu plans or recipes and see if anything interests you then email me and let me know and I'll share the recipe.

That sounds yummy! I'll have to try it one of these nights. My kids live for alfredo.
I have lots of recipes and the easiest one lately is the Garam Masala pork I made the other night. It really only took me 10 minutes to make. I will think of something else and get back to you!

I actually know exactly what you mean. Baking is a no brainer for me, but I have a mental block for sewing. I'll have to think of some no fail recipes for you.
