Cucumbers to Pickles!

The baby cucumbers (as I love to call them) have been so plentiful in my garden. I have been making pickles, some more pickles and pickles! LOL These are seasoned garlic ones (with sliced sweet white onions) and are they ever delicious! Pickling juices of many varieties are so fun to make. I like sweet and sour bread sliced pickles as well. They’re great on a sandwich.

They stand well in the refrigerator, tightly jarred for a few weeks!

Make yourself some you’ll be happy you did!

"Cheffie Cooks" Favorite Original Recipes

win_20161106_14_33_40_pro-3A really reasonably cut of beef that we just love. I use a season mix of onion salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cumin and rub the outside of the Flank Steak (about 5 pounds), place on top of an aluminum foil  lined baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and worcestershire sauce and place under the broiler, keeping the oven door ajar. we love new red potatoes with rosemary butter as a side dish, and a slaw salad. Make any side dishes you love!

Cut the Flank Steak (after it rests) on the bias (against the grain) with a sharp knife.

Its a truly flavorful meal! Hope you enjoy.

Citrus Frozen Fruit Pops

I made a huge batch of popsicles and every single one is gone! The are so refreshing in the hot months. I made lemon-lime-orange, cherry and pineapple.

They are so inexpensive and easy to make. The molds are ones my mom used years ago and I bought the wooden popsicle sticks and just let them freeze overnight. Tart, sweet and delicious!

Give them a try you’ll love them too.

Fluffy Mashed Potatoes

Ever wonder how many dishes go with creamy mashed potatoes? I do! They are a favorite here. Add butter, sour cream or cream cheese, milk, cream, s & p, whip them until fluffy. They disappear in no time!

I have tried every pre-packaged mashed potato on the market and nothing compares to the real thing. Take the time to peel, dice and boil. you’ll be glad you did!

These are so delicious and fun to make. I use a box brownie mix, form patties on a non stick baking sheet pan (rimmed) and bake 22-24 minutes @ 350 F until done. Allow to cool. Make whipped cream for the center (or buy store bought whipped cream) fill, add second brownie round and voila-whoopies!!!

Enjoy this easy economical treat!
