    If you like REALLY good Macaroni & Cheese....

    3 sticks Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp cheese
    1 1/2 lbs. Macaroni Noodles
    1/4 cup flour
    1/2 stick butter
    4 cups milk

    Boil macaroni about 5 minutes (still very firm), drain out water and set to the side.

    Grate cheese

    Melt 1/2 stick butter in sauce pan. When melted, add 4 cups milk and whisk in the 1/4 cup of flour. When this mixture heats up, use wire whisk to stir in the grated cheese until the cheese is totally melted and you have a thick sauce. Stir this sauce in with the macaroni noodles and mix well. Pour into a large casserole dish and bake at 350 for 40 minuutes (until top just begins to brown).

    This is my mothers recipe and it is the best M & C in the world!

    1/3 Wild Turkey
    1/3 Ginger Brandy
    1/3 Scotch

    Memory fails as to how this was concocted, but I do recall it taking me from a pleasant buzz to something approaching simulated sobriety.

    I was displeased.

    Anyhow, it sort of became something of a dare.

    Seems rather sacrilegious to put anything with scotch other than water, or perhaps plain soda ^8

    I admit it's not mine alone. :) But i love Emeril's cooking.

    Warning: Before making have cardiologist on standby.

    Four Cheese Spinach Lasagna

    1 (20-ounce) package fresh spinach, tough stems removed and washed
    5 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 cup minced shallots
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    3/4 pound portobello mushrooms, stems removed and sliced (about 3 large)
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    4 cups whole milk
    1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    2 1/2 cups grated Parmesan
    15 ounces fresh ricotta
    1 1/2 cups grated Fontina or provolone
    1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
    1 pound lasagna noodles, cooked to al dente

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spinach and cook for 2 minutes. Drain in a fine mesh strainer, pressing with a large spoon to release as much water as possible. Finely chop and set aside.
    In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and black pepper, and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are tender and have given off their liquid, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

    To make the bechamel sauce, in a large saucepan, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, to make a light roux, about 2 minutes. Whisking constantly, slowly add the milk and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, the nutmeg, and 1 cup of the Parmesan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

    In a bowl, combine the ricotta, fontina, and mozzarella cheeses. Fold in 1/4 cup of the bechamel sauce.

    Across the bottom of a deep-dish lasagna pan (13 by 9-inches), spoon enough bechamel sauce to cover (about 1/2 cup). Then add 1/4 of the mushrooms and sprinkle 1/4 of the spinach across. Arrange a layer of cooked noodles side-by-side across the sauce. Spread another layer of bechamel over the noodles and top with more spinach, mushrooms, and cheese. Repeat layering with sauce, noodles, spinach, and cheese 2 more times, ending with noodles on top. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups of Parmesan over the top, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and bake until the noodles are tender and the lasagna is hot and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until golden brown on top, about 10 minutes.

    Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Serve hot.

    Kahlua Cake

    1 box chocolate cake mix
    2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding (mixed and set)
    1 tub cool whip
    1 cup of Kahlua
    1 package of Heath bar bits

    Bake cake as directed. Once cooked punch holes in it with a fork. Pour the cup of Kahlua of the cake and let it sit for a few minutes. Take half the cake and crumble into large dish or bowl. Layer with pudding, cool whip, and Heath bar bits. Repeat the process again.
    I usually keep it chilled until ready to serve. Delicious.
    The amount of Kahlua can be a bit strong; you can always use less if you want. It serves a bunch of people!

    My favorite cassarole when I was a kid, I loved it so much that I learned how to make it. The cassarole dish I use is 9 inch diameter and 3 1/2 inches deep and that is probably what would work the best, never tried using anything else (yes, I stole the dish my mom made it in when I was a kid;f ) It is called Chop Suey Rice

    1 pound of hamburger
    3/4 cup of rice
    4 to 5 stalks of celery, chopped
    1 medium sized onion, chopped
    1 box of fresh sliced mushrooms
    1 envelope of Liptons chicken noodle soup mix.

    Brown the hamburger, onion, celery, mushrooms and rice together over medium to medium high heat. Salt and pepper it to taste, I use Jess Halls Serendipity season salt (cant be had in the stores here in the east, but can be found on the internet, good stuff) When you about have it browned / cooked get a pan with 4 cups of water and heat it to boil. Once the water is boiling at the envelope of Liptons chicken noodle mix and let it boil for 4 minutes then remove it from the heat. Combine the ingredients from the frying pan and the soup into the cassarole dish and bake it in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes

    It is so good it will make your babies be born naked and your teeth will swap holes.;f

    Take a 6 ounce can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate.
    pour contents into a blender.
    fill the lemonade can up with your favorite vodka.
    pour it in the blender too.
    put a bunch of ice in the blender, slush the far out of it.
    Top it off with a citrus type drink like Zima and give it a final twirl in the blender.

    1 blender will make you feel fine
    2 blenders full will make you forget your troubles
    3 blenders full will make you forget your name.;f

    Baked Apple Porkchops

    4-6 Butterflied pork chops
    1 or 2 Granny Smith Apples
    1 1/2 cups Bread crumbs
    1 cup parmesean cheese
    2 12oz brews of your choice

    Open 1 brew, start consuming at a leisurely pace. Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 baking dish (use whatever size you have), and set aside. Mix bread crumbs and parmesean cheese together, then divide in half. Use 1/2 of the crumb mixture to coat the chops, using the remainder of that 1/2 to line the baking dish. Place chops in dish. Slice the apples 1/4-1/2" thick, and layer them on top of the chops. Take remainder of crumbs and pour on top.

    Cover, and bake at 350 for 30-35 min. Enjoy 2nd brew. Uncover, and bake 10 min, or until browned on top.
