Garlic Parmesan Butter is one of those things that I didn’t consider worthy of posting here until a friend wondered what I was doing to my butter. It’s a simple process, and it surprised me that she’d never done this for herself. Butter is allowed to soften at room temperature before garlic, herbs, and parmesan cheese are mixed into it. Garlic Parmesan Butter can turn […]
Today is Clam Chowder Day, and I’m putting together a pot full of homemade clam chowder for my family. I have another recipe for clam chowder made from food storage items here on the Patty Cake’s Pantry website, but this time, I’m making it entirely from scratch. Homemade Clam Chowder is delicious, and it’s surprisingly simple to prepare. There’s really only minimal prep work necessary, […]
Apple Cranberry Pork Chops are a delicious twist. Making these pork chops is a great way to use up leftover apples, and they’re a delicious way to use less than perfect apples in a savory dish instead of dessert. It’s a twist on a classic Autumn side dish–Apples an onions. This recipe for Apple Cranberry Pork Chops is a simple way to a delectable dinner.
This recipe for Pumpkin Cake Roll may be coming a little late to the annual pumpkin recipe party, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with all of my readers. It’s just too good to wait until next fall. This tantalizing dessert of pumpkin cake wrapped around a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting is addictive. Besides, this Pumpkin Cake Roll freezes […]
I love lemon desserts–lemon pie, lemon cake, lemon curd tarts, lemon bars, and lemon crinkle cookies. I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few, but I’ve remembered the purpose for today’s post. Lemon crinkle cake mix cookies are very simple to make and are sure to become a favorite in your house like they are in mine.
Slow Cooker Red Cabbage and Apples is a twist on a traditional German side dish. At least, hat’s what a German octogenarian told me. This recipe is our attempt to recreate the dish for her. We modified the recipe for Red Cabbage and Apples that she described by preparing it in a slow cooker to make it a bit less labor intensive.
You know that we love beans here at Patty Cake’s Pantry, and we are always looking for new ways to prepare them. This recipe is similar to beans and greens, but it uses leeks in place of greens, and Italian seasoning, and parsley, in place of the red pepper flakes. The result is a simple and delicious vegetable side dish that is a perfect accompaniment […]
This is a very simple combination that creates a delicious cream style corn that doesn’t seem like it came from a can. The best part is that it takes about 10 minutes from start to finish which means your vegetable side dish is ready without any of the usual muss and fuss.
Alfredo is a huge favorite in our household, so I couldn’t let a month of canned recipes go by without trying to make a version of Chicken Linguine Alfredo using canned food. The specific canned ingredients chosen for this recipe were canned milk and canned chicken, and the result was delicious. In fact, I may use canned milk in my Alfredo more often.
In my humble opinion, nothing says comfort food like macaroni and cheese. This version is baked, beginning with uncooked macaroni. Not cooking the macaroni first saves some hands on time. This helps to get dinner on the table while you are busy helping the kids with homework or working on that report for work. The best part is that this recipe for Baked No […]
