“great desserts to make at home”

At 5pm I was fried; had a freshly cleaned but mostly empty fridge, save for a lb of ground beef I forgot I’d thawed. Literally searched ‘weeknight ground beef’ & found this – jackpot! Simple recipe, fairly staple ingredients & flavors my people love – I feel like I shouldn’t have needed a recipe for this but I DID, and I’m so grateful you provided it. Looking forward to the next time w/ broccoli!
I’m not exaggerating when I say this recipe took me about 15 minutes to make from start to finish, y’all. It was as easy as throwing the ground beef into a skillet, mixing together the sauce while the beef browned, then adding said sauce plus a package of frozen broccoli to the beef and letting it bubble for a few more minutes.
Serve up a spicy dinner for two with this hot and creamy linguini tossed with an eye-opening blend of chicken strips sauteed with Cajun seasoning, colorful bell peppers, mushrooms and onions. Cream, basil, lemon pepper and garlic powder finish the sauce.
This recipe is one of my family’s favorites, and I make these treats a lot, especially at Christmas. I have 3 children and 8 grandchildren, and every one of them loves those “peanut butter thingies,” as the grandchildren call them! —Jodie McCoy, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Mix together all of the meatball ingredients in a large bowl until well-combined. Spoon out 1 1/2-inch of meat mixture with a cookie scoop (or tablespoon), shape into balls and place onto 2 large baking sheets or trays lined with baking or parchment paper.
Just made them this morning and sampled one. Omg very delicious, mine did come out a little flat on bottom. I used the meatloaf meat mix and it might be do to the fat content. I added both fresh basil and parsley. Best recipe by far I ever tried. Definitely going to be pinning this one
My family and I loved these meatballs! The flavours and texture are fantastic. I didn’t have a cup of breadcrumbs so I used some oatmeal and crushed saltines as well, and they were still wonderful. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much!
Hi! I hope someone can help me, because I just went and bought all the ingredients but I bought balsamic vinaigrette dressing because I’m new to all this so don’t judge me 😂 lol. Can i use that to mix with sugar or is there any replacement? Thanks in advance!
In Louisiana it’s “prah·leen.” In Georgia it’s “pray·leen.” No matter how you pronounce it, these crunchy, nutty cookies are sure to please. What’s even more surprising is that no one knew this was an alternative spelling for delicious. Or delectable. This praline cookie recipe only has six ingredients: flour, brown sugar, an egg, pecans, butter, and vanilla extract. It also works wonders when you don’t have time to wait over the stovetop for your boiled sugar to drop to the perfect temperature. You can even add in chocolate chips for Crispy Praline-Chocolate Chip Cookies. That becomes a twist on two classics, which only makes both the originals even more incredible. How do you pronounce yum?
I have been making both versions of this recipe for many years. These meatballs practically vanish when they are part of a pot-luck meal. We often buy frozen plain meatballs, and they work well with this recipe, and couldn’t possibly be easier to make. I can have these on the table in a few minutes, and minute rice is a great side dish.
This is my second review because I changed things a bit. 🙂 I cut the parm cheese to 3/4 c., halved the butter, used french sourdough bread (w/o crusts), one onion only and San Marzano canned tomatoes (sweeter). This is my go-to recipe for spaghetti & meatballs now. So moist and tasty. Reheat in a pot slowly for leftovers. Still moist like that. Sprinkle with more cheese on top at the end. YUM! 3.5!
I can’t say that I’ve ever had that happen! My guess is that some of the ingredients weren’t completely incorporated before it was chilled. If you’re using a stand mixer, it can miss certain spots, especially toward the bottom of the bowl. Also, was this the same batch of dough that was chilled overnight?
These are wonderful cookies. So wonderful, my next door neighbor with whom I gifted some, sent me, by mail, a thank you card wherein he extolled my virtues as a superior chocolate cookie baker. He could have simply Morse Coded a “Thanks!” on the wall we share.
This versatile citrus salad dressing gets a touch of natural sweetness from orange juice, which balances the acidity of the lemon juice. Use it in coleslaw for a mayo-free dressing, or drizzle it over winter greens with dried fruit and nuts.
I used your recipe here for chocolate chips the other day for my niece’s birthday party. I’m very picky about my cookies and have been on a search for the perfect recipe for a while now. I needed to make these on the fly and am so glad I came across your recipe. I chose it because of how loaded with chocolate chips they were. While it isn’t what I’ve been searching for exactly in a chocolate chip cookie (I’ve actually been trying to find one like my great aunt used to make when I was a little girl), these were truly amazing!! Hands-down the best recipe I’ve come yet! I wasn’t aware of chilling dough and the butter being at room temperature, so the fact that you put those little helpful hints up there I feel like made a huge impact. Literally everyone at the party LOVE these cookies and I already shared your recipe with many of them because they wouldn’t let me go without it. The only thing I had to do was bake them 17-20 minutes because they were quite large, but I still got about 18 cookies from each batch. I loved the size, texture, chewiness and richness of each one. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!!!
