Recipe Share

So I am going to start by posting a pretty easy recipe that my family LOVES, then you can leave one of your family's favorite recipies in the comments...hopefully we will get enough recipes that we wont have any problems with not having something to cook for supper for a while! ;) Might have a problem deciding which one(s) though!

"Taco Taters" (Not the orignal name, but descriptive!)
3 lg. baking potatoes
1 Tbs. butter
1 lb ground beef
1 can(14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
Scrub and pierce potatoes. Cook in nuker until done. When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in 1/2 lengthwise. Carefully remove pulp, leaving 1/2 inch. Brush butter on inside and outside of potato shells. Place taters cut side up on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat untill no longer pink; drain. Add tomatoes and taco seasoning. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer;, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
Spoon into potato shells; sprinkle with cheese.
Bake, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer or untill cheese is melted. Top with sour cream.

In the interest of full disclosure, there WERE onions in the recipe - but I detest onions, so I ommit them from my recipe. IF you want to add the onions, chop up half of a medium onion and cook it with the meat.


  1. Those taters sound great. I'm grabbing them!

    Here's a great recipe especially for kids and it is so quick, easy and way CHEAP, and, yes, it is very good!

  3. Tomato Marmalade (Gramma White's recipe)

    *Use either red or yellow tomatoes*

    Cook 12 Med Tomatoes until thick. Should be 2 qts of thick tomatoes, add 6 Cups of sugar, 1 lemon (put through chopper, rind and all) 1 teaspoon of ginger, and a little salt.
    Simmer until thick, should cook down about an inch. Stir often, as it sticks easy when it starts to thicken.
