Meatballs and pasta have always been a dinner favorite in my family. One of my New Years goals were to try and make new dishes that everyone would love. This is definitely one of them. I have included the recipe down below, so you can try making it for dinner. I look forward to reading all your comments!
10X15 baking dish
16-ounce box of Penne pasta (you can also use any pasta.)
40 Meatballs or a 48-ounce bag of frozen meatballs
2 1/2 jars of tomato sauce
12-ounce jar of Current Jelly
Grated Parmesan cheese
10 slices of mozzarella cheese
Cook and drain pasta according to package.
Preheat oven to 350.
Layer some sauce on the bottom of your pan so the pasta won’t stick to the pan.
Pour pasta into pan and spread out.
Add a little sauce on top of the pasta and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
Lay your meatballs on top of the pasta, before adding more sauce and grated parmesan cheese.
Lay your slices of mozzarella cheese on top .
Place in oven for 40 minutes or until meatballs are cooked and the cheese is golden brown on top.
Peanut Butter cups have always been a favorite in my family. If you love peanut butter cups as much as I do, then this recipe is for you. It’s the type of dessert that will be very popular at parties or gatherings. It is also a great snack during the day. Try it out and let me know what you think. I look forward to reading all your comments!
Things you need:
1 Mixing bowl
Chocolate melting pot
Hand mixer or a Kitchen Aid
1 cup of Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tbsp Butter (Melted)
1 ½ to 2 cups of Powdered Sugar
Lindt Chocolate or Chocolate Chips (Milk or Dark Chocolate)
Add peanut butter and melted butter to your bowl before slowly adding the powdered sugar to your bowl. Mix well.
While chocolate is melting, line muffin pan with cupcake tins.
Once chocolate is melted, take one to two spoon fulls of chocolate to cover the bottom of the cupcake tin.
Take a scoop of peanut butter mixture and roll into a ball before slightly flattening it so it fits in the cupcake tin.
Finally cover with chocolate so peanut butter isn’t showing, before putting in fridge for half hour, or until chocolate is hardened.
Dutch Apple pie has always been a favorite in my family. Since Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, I wanted to try making a homemade Dutch Apple Pie before the holiday. I have included the recipe down below, so you can try making it for this upcoming Thanksgiving. I look forward to reading all your comments!
9 X 9 baking dish
1 frozen Pillsbury pie crust
6 cups, about 8 apples (peeled and diced, you can use any type of apples such as Granny Smith or Macintosh, but I used Gala’s, Golden Delicious, and Snow Sweets.)
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
3 tbsp of flour (I used a blend of almond and bread flour)
¾ tsp of ground cinnamon
¼ tsp of nutmeg
¾ cup of flour (I used a blend of almond and bread flour)
1/3 cup softened butter
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375.
Peel and dice your apples.
Put small slices in bottom crust and bake for about 10 minutes, (so it doesn’t get soggy on the bottom)
Mix all of the dry filling ingredients & mix in the apples. (Make sure to coat the apples really well.
Pour into prepared crust.
6. In another bowl, mix flour, sugars, and cinnamon for the topping of the pie.
7. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients for the topping until it becomes a crumbly texture using a fork.
8. Pour on top of the pie making sure to cover all of the apples.
9. Place on a foil lined baking sheet, before placing into oven for 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
10. When finished, remove from oven. Let cool before serving.
