Thanksgiving Pot Pie

 I know most of us have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. We did this last year and loved it, so we did it again this year. We have individual size pots that was filled with turkey, some mixed veggies, gravy and cheese. I made a bread dough to top the pies, but you could use a pie crust recipe. These were baked for about 45 minutes.

I had plenty of bread dough left over, so I made them into cinnamon rolls. :)

Cinnamon Waffles


We made up some really tasty waffles adding cinnamon and vanilla to a favorite pancake recipe. This would work well as either pancakes or waffles. So here is the recipe:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 T baking powder
1 t salt
1T cinnamon
2T vanilla
6 T melted butter
*2 eggs
2 cups milk

Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients. mix well. Make waffles in waffle iron according to manufactures directions.

*Now what I do for waffles is that I separate the eggs, whip up the egg whites and fold into the waffles batter.

Centennial Molasses Spice Drops


I am usually not into "spice" cookies, but I really like how these turned out. This recipe comes out of Betty Crocker's Cookie Book. This recipe does have cider vinegar in it. The cook book mentions that vinegar was used in cooking a lot over hundred years ago, even in the baked goods.

So here is the recipe:
2/3 cup butter - I used half shortening and butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup molasses
3 cups flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
3/4 t cinnamon
3/4 t ginger
1/4 cup cider vinegar - I used apple cider vinegar, it is was I had on hand

Heat oven 374 degrees
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and molasses. Blend dry ingredients. Alternately add dry ingredients and vinegar. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until no imprints remain when lightly touched.

Potato Salad


I had planned on posting this recipe a few months ago, but I did not have a photo to share. I had convinced him to make potato salad so I could get a picture. We had family coming over and I though potato salad would make a nice addition to ham sandwiches. So here is the recipe:

3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
10 hard boiled eggs, cooled and shelled
1/2 cup honey mustard

1 cup diced onions
1 cup diced celery

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoon fresh dill

Boil potatoes until cooked, but not mushy, rinse and cool. Add eggs, onions, and celery. Mix gently. In a separate bowl mix the remaining ingredients. Add to the potato mixture. Refrigerate 2-4 hours. Serve cold.
