Frosting

Here are three different recipes for frosting, because a girl never knows which one she wants the most, so it is good to have options according to what you need, and your what your taste buds are asking for. These frosting recipes are not for super fancy cake decorating, but just regular home-made recipes for the average setting.

My husband and daughters have made fun of me for years for some of my cooking terms that I use: "dash, blob, etc."  It's the way I've made this recipe from my mom since I was a teenager.  My mom told me, "use three blobs of ketchup", so I gave it three good blobs and it turned out perfect.  This recipe has a great flavor and everyone who has tried it, loves it.  Hope  you enjoy it~

2 lbs. hamburger
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 eggs
dash of milk
3 good blobs of ketchup
1 single row packet of saltine crackers, crushed up


Use your hands (or some latex gloves) and really get in and mix this up!  Once it is thoroughly mixed, spread it out in a 9X13 baking dish.  Squirt a few strips of ketchup on the top. Cover  and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 










Broccoli & Cheese Soup

This is yumminess in a bowl.  It is so hearty, and so belly-warming, and so taste-bud satisfying.  It will make you feel good all over from head to toe!!
I have to give my sister-in-law credit for this recipe. I don't know if it is hers, but I got it from her. So credit to Amber. This is an amazing soup recipe!!

6 potatoes,[ peeled and  diced
2 carrots diced or shredded
1 onion diced
2 cups celery diced (optional/I always opt out of celery)
6 chicken boullion cubes

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 lb. Velveeta cheese, diced
1 bag or less of frozen broccoli heads


Cook potatoes, carrots, onions,  celery, and boullion cubes in 2 1/2 cups water until tender, but not mushy.  Melt the butter and make a paste out of the butter, flour and milk. Add to the soup.  Next melt the Velveeta cheese.  When the soup is ready, add the broccoli heads last. 

If the soup is too thick add a little milk until it is the consistency you desire.
