Stuffed Cabbage (Galumpkis)

2 1/2 lbs of ground beef or ground beef/pork mixture
1 large onion
4 Tbsp. butter
(some people add rice, I like it better without)
salt and pepper to taste
1 large head of cabbage
1 can of tomato soup mixed with one can of water

instructionsCollapse )

This is one of those dishes that is better the second day and it freezes really well. I usually make it in double or triple batches and freeze some of it.

Can't Leave it Alone

1 Package (18-1/4 oz) White Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Can (14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Cup (6oz) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (I used the milk chocolate ones!)
1/4 Cup Butter or Margarine, Cubed

In bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs and oil. With floured hands, press 2/3 of the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Set remaining cake mixture aside.

In microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips and butter. Microwave uncovered on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 45 - 60 seconds longer or until chips and butter are melted; stir until smooth. Pour over crust.

Drop teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.

Yield: 3 doz

The recipe I had called to add cocoa, but you can really flavor it however you need to. The batter comes out looking like a mousse, and I admit, tastes awesome!!! (What I had to test it … DON’T JUDGE ME).

Ok, I got this from my mom....remember eating this when I was a kid & made it this weekend & Jared loves it too! :)

2 T Butter
2 T Flour
1 C Milk
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1/8 tsp pepper

Melt butter then add flour and milk and heat until it thickens.

Now, this part is just if its something you like or not.

1/2 can of peas & 1/2 can of tuna mix well & serve over toast.

If you want to use an entire can of each, just double the main recipe. The salt is optional & you can't taste a difference.

In the winter, when I was a little girl in Virginia, my Mommy used to stop by the Yak-Joint on the way home and pick up some beef or chicken Yakamein for dinner. It's an Asia soup dish, origin unknown really, although here tell it, New Orleans is calling it soul food now.

Wherever it came from, it's delicious and pretty easy and inexpensive to prepare. I'm going to give you the recipe for Chicken Yakamein which is the one I like best.
