My friend Debbie makes the most amazing bean dip! I adapted her recipe for more shelf-stable ingredients and posted both recipes here. Hope you enjoy! –Mellyn
Although this recipe doesn’t actually call for Salsa “inside” it. I feel it is a must to be served with it. This makes it a winner on our table. The littler mouths can eat it with ketchup if they think my latest version of salsa is too hot and I can still have the spice of salsa on mine! Continue reading
This recipe is great to use up left over homemade tortillas. Even if they have gone a little dry, you can use them in this recipe and have great results! Continue reading
I had a couple of college roommates who were excellent cooks. One of them made a wonderful thick chicken and noodle gravy that she always served over mashed potatoes. I had that idea in mind when I set to work on this recipe. I love the flavor the bacon and rosemary add –total comfort food! –Mellyn Continue reading

We have a favorite baked bean recipe that uses canned pork and beans. This work-in-progress version is my attempt to use dry beans instead of canned ones, without sacrificing the flavor we love. I’ll continue to update it as I refine it! Thoughts or suggestions are welcome!–Mellyn Continue reading

Onion, carrots, peas and mushrooms all add to the mild flavor of this cheese sauce. The tortellini adds variety to the pastas I prepare normally. Continue reading
Another staple from my one great cook! I personally don’t like clams, but my husband LOVES them. I just discreetly remove a bowl of this for myself out of the family pot BEFORE I add the clams. Then no one is any wiser that my dish is different. I don’t have to eat clams, but I don’t need to make my kids think they shouldn’t either. I like to let them decide on their own! Recipe from Karen.

The PTA at my Elementary school used to make a version of this recipe to sell to kids at lunch time for fund raising. The potatoes in the recipe really cut down the amount, and therefore the cost, of the ground beef. Here it really stretches my dollar as freeze dried ground beef is no where close to cheap, BUT hash brown potatoes are. The sauce on these is by far my favorite, though childhood memories may be keeping me a little biased. Continue reading
This chili comes together quickly. Especially since I have no need to rehydrate my ground beef or onion before mixing. It cuts down on my prep time and my think ahead time. This is my husbands favorite chili. Continue reading
This is an easy side dish. It does need time to chill, but it is so simple to assemble that if I have the thought of it in the morning, I only need a moment to have it ready and chilling well before dinner time. Recipe from Carol. Continue reading
This is a great item for any kitchen. I use it so much that fresh onion has little place on my shopping list. WIth the use of dried onion I keep from crying too much in my kitchen either.
Picking just 5 recipes that go well with dehydrated onion was very hard for me. I hope you find something you like in this weeks pickings.
This is an old recipe from my mother-in-law. Most of the original measurements were “to taste.” The amounts listed here are what my family likes.
