Crockpot Hot Spicy Chili


2 LBS. Ground hamburger or sausage
2 15 OZ. Cans of pitted black beans
3 15 OZ Cans of kidney beans
3 15 OZ. Cans of diced or stewed tomatoes
Habenero Peppers 1/2 to 1 LB according to preference of spice  OR NOT 
Jalepeno Peppers 1/2 to 1 LB according to  Or Not 
preference of spice
Ground cayenne pepper
Chili Powder
Ground Black Pepper
Minced Garlic 1/8 tsp.
1 White Onion  or NOT 
Chili Sauce
Tabasco or hot pepper sauce
Brown the hamburger and then mix the olives,
kidney beans and tomatoes together.
Note- Habenero peppers need to be used with
caution. If you decide to cut them you should cover your hands to
protect them from the juice of the pepper which is very sensitive to
skin at times.
Cut the habenero and jalepeno peppers into small slices then add to the
above mixture.
According to your preference of spice or hotness desired add the
following to the contents above: Ground Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Chili
Powder, Ground Black Pepper, Cumin, 1/8 tsp. of minced garlic, Chili
Sauce, and Tabasco or Hot Pepper Sauce.
Stir everything together until well mixed and then cook on medium or
high heat whichever is desired.  Either cook over the stove or in a
crockpot. Decrease temperature as desired.
This serving amount varies.
A good suggestion for topping is any spicy cheese such as jalepeno jack
chedder cheese and tortilla chips rather than crackers which can give a
good authentic mexican taste.

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

More often than not,
I found this on the web 

Curried Butternut Squash Soup Servings | 6

3 pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes
2 medium onion(s), quartered
29 oz fat-free chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1 medium scallion(s), thinly sliced, for garnish

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place squash and onion in a large baking dish (baking sheet will also work). Pour in chicken broth and bake, uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Don't worry if some of the pieces get a bit browned, this will add to the roasted flavor of the soup.

Remove from oven. Let cool about 15 minutes¿ do not pour hot soup directly into food processor, or you risk it exploding. Pour in batches in blender or food processor.

Toast curry powder in a small skillet over low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes¿ be careful not to burn it. Stir into pureed soup. Season to taste and divide into six bowls (yields about a 3/4 cup per serving); top each bowl with 1 tablespoon of the sour cream. Garnish with scallions and serve.

simmer for
about 15 minutes. Add corn and half & half. Cook for about 30 minutes

medium heat. Add crabmeat last and simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve

Although any variety of apple works in this cake, I like to use a
combination of varieties, particularly Golden Delicious, 
and McIntosh.

4 cups diced apples (I like to use 4 1/2 to 5 cups)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup salad oil
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

mixture. Bake in a greased 13x9 inch pan for 1 hour.
Server frosted or unfrosted. This cake is one of those that you can
pretty much finish and serve however you like. If you want to frost
it, a sour cream frosting is very nice. Whipping cream or ice cream
go very well with it, too. My favorite way to eat it, though, is with
no frosting at all.

2/3 cup milk or buttermilk
1/8 cup oil or bacon  drippings

Step #1: Blend above ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Step  #2: Dump a hand full of flour on a pastry cloth or whatever. A brown
paper sack  also works. Newspaper also works just fine.

fingers. Coat the inside of the skillet and the palms  of your hands with oil.

Step #5: Knead the dough for about 30 seconds,  rolling it in the flour and
thickening it.

Step #6: Halve the dough.  Halve it again, making 4 pieces of dough. Step #7:
Roll each piece of dough  between your hands, making it into a ball, then put
it in the skillet. 

Step #8: Use a spoon or a pastry brush and put a little oil or bacon 
drippings on the top of each unbaked biscuit.

Preheat oven to 3500. Bake  25 minutes. Broil/toast for 1 or 2 minutes.

Pumpkin Pecan Bread


More often than not,
I found this on the web 

Pumpkin Pecan Bread

3 1/2 cups of self-rising flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
3 cups of sugar
2 cups of canned pumpkin
1 cup of oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup of water
1 cup of chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Oil and flour three 8x4 inch
loaf pans.  Sift together flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add
sugar and mix well.  Add oil, eggs, water and pumpkin all at
once.  Mix well, then add nuts.  Pour into pans, filling each
half full.  Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick stuck in
middle comes out clean.

Tonight i cooked some crab legs, the frozen ones,Preeheat oven to 400f. then put umm in the sink, run hot water on umm to sorta thaw out the thick white part a little, i put the bottom of the roaster pan in the oven with water in it, now on the top i arrange the

Legs with thick part on the edge cover with a wet cotton towel tuck it in around edge

You should get the “widows claw” Thick white part hot, i go for 188f. A great trick is to put a small amount of vinegar in a bowl and put ti on th estove eye that the oven vents on, and no smell of fish after you cook, this works for a wide range of “smelly” food……
