OLS Recipes
Well, I thought it would be a neat idea to start a thread of recipes that we have tried. Sooo...please submit as many as you would like however here are the simple "rules:"

1.) You must have recently tried the recipe yourself.
2.) You must provide feedback on what you thought of it...i.e., let us know if you tried it and wouldn't try it again, etc.!

I thought it would be neat to get a little "recipe book" going here (might be fun to one day put together an OLS recipe book or something!); it would be fun to try things that other members are trying! Let us know if you try someone else's posted recipe and your feedback on that as well!

P.S. Could a mod/admin sticky this for me?? THANKS!

Okay--I will go ahead and get this started. Here's a recipe that I made earlier today; it was my first time trying this one and it was REALLY good! Very filling--this alone makes a good meal!! I would definitely do this one again! I used low fat milk instead of whole milk and it worked out perfectly fine! I also used the Anaheim peppers however I am sure that poblano peppers would be just as good; I'd like to try it again with the poblanos.

Chili Pepper Corn Cream Chowder

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 pound frozen corn kernels
12 ounces red potatoes, diced
4 cups whole milk
2 Anaheim or poblano chili peppers, seeded and diced
6 ounces cream cheese, cubed
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add corn, potatoes, milk and chili peppers. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover tightly and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese has melted.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

This was GREAT! And we had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning!

Hash Brown Quiche

Makes 6-8 servings

3 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
3 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425F.

Press the potatoes between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Press onto the bottom and the side of an 8-inchpie plate. Drizzle with the butter. Bake for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350F.

Combine the ham, Cheddar and bell pepper in a medium bowl and mix well. Spoon into the hash brown crust. Beat the eggs in a small bowl. Add the milk, salt and black pepper and mix well. Pour the egg mixture over the ham mixture. Bake the quiche until set, 25 to 30 minutes.

For a bit of a flavor boost, add 1/4 cup minced onion or shallot to the ham mixture.

Fettucine Alfredo
Super easy, Fettucine Alfredo-

1 stick butter, softened
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (not the canister kind)

Warm cream in sauce pan over medium heat, add stick of softened butter and wisk to melt. Add 1 cup cheese and wisk to combine. Simmer over medium until mixture thickens, usually this takes about 15 minutes-tops. Add 1- lb. (1 box) cooked AL-DENTE fettucine. Viola!!

I love this recipe, even though it is very high in fat. I love to add sauted, cooked shrimp or chicken. I also like to add diced sun-dried tomatoes (the kind in oil) and proscuitto too. Really easy, really yummy!

I just tried this last week and I've made it twice already...once over pasta and once for a stromboli (it was too soggy for that)
I didn't have any yellow so I just used green zucchini

1 green zuccchini
1 yellow zucchini
1 red onion
3 cloves garlic (or more)
2 cans whole tomato (no salt)
1 tbs. rosemary
1 tsp. crushed red pepper

Slice zucchini onion and garlic thinly. Put in large saucepan. Cut tomato
into bitesize chunks. add rosemary and red pepper. heat for 15-30 minutes
to give flavors time to meld together. Serve over pasta. Yummy!
