I hope you all have some foods and recipes to share!
I’ll start off with one of my favorite “heart healthy diet” dishes……
Preheat a fry-pan with light-tasting olive oil.
And remember….don’t be LAZY….
stir everything as you cook so these babies achieve uniform browning through all stages!
Slice an onion into pan and season with salt & pepper to taste
– as Emeril says, “I don’t know where you buy YOUR onions, ’cause where I buy mine they don’t come seasoned.”
Saute until translucent and beginning to brown.
Now add sliced new potatoes, and season with salt & pepper, garlic, and sweet paprika
– as Emeril says, “I don’t know where you buy YOUR potatos, ’cause where I buy mine they don’t come seasoned.”
Now brown the potatoes to near desired doneness.
Okay, it’s time to add the sausage. I use a smoked bratwurst from a sausage-maker in Lockeford, CA.
There is no need to season the sausage – unless you buy awful sausage!
Now, continue browning and strirring until everything is nicely done to your taste!
Here’s how mine looks when done.

I love this dish as either a side dish, stand-alone meal, or dessert!
This dish can be made in SO MANY ways! You can exchange the type of noodles, types of cheese.
You can substitute for the raisins – apricot preserves for instance, etc.
First I prepare a 12 ounce package of wide egg-noodles, drain, then toss with about a half-stick of butter and let cool.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Then I mix:
16-oz Ricotta Cheese
8-oz Sour Cream
4-oz Cream Cheese
¼-Cup whipping cream (can use Half-&-Half or just milk)
¼-Cup Raisins (or more….1/3 or ½ Cup)
½-Cup brown sugar
3 or 4 Dashes of cinnamon
Then sprinkle a little more cinnamon over top of mixture once you put it in the baking dish.
Add the noodles and mix gently until well combined with the mixture.
Grease a 13″x9″x2″ (or other suitable size baking dish) and pour in mixture.
Bake for 1 hour (or until done – top should be slightly brown on tips of noodles, center should be firm)
Here’s what mine looked like the other day – I cut into six portions, eat one, and freeze the others individually!

Ken, Great Idea!!! My mouth is watering just looking at your Creations!!!
I’ll just be the food critic-I can’t cook much, and when I do it isn’t something that I would get pics of-that would really discourage others, I still can’t figure out why I can’t loose weight with what I cook!!:rolleyes: Your shots are good enough to eat! I better not show my daughter!:D
