Braised Steak with Mushroom & Onion Gravy

Cindy's Chili

Prepare this hearty soup on the stove top or to save time, or slowly in a croc pot!

The sodium content in this recipe seems quite high, but when you rinse the can beans and use low sodium tomato products the sodium content will be much lower. I use no salt added tomato paste but could not find it in the food search to enter for this recipe.

Broccoli Apple Salad w/ cheddar and bacon

Crunchy, Creamy and simply delicious! This makes a hearty salad and a good source of vitamins A & C, Calcium and Iron!

Apple Banana Snack Cake

Some may think this is a bread since it's baked in loaf pans, but you will be pleasantly surprised! It's scrumptious!
This recipe makes 3 good sized loaves, but it freezes well!
Try a peice for breakfast or an afternoon snack! Goes great with coffee or a cold glass of milk.

Cheesy Broccoli Soup for Two

Anyone cooking for just one or two? I am! I've seen many good recipes that make alot but unfortunately my hubby isn't fond of any kind of leftovers! I have to create recipes for two or three to avoid leftover servings. This is one of my creations. Serve with a salad, whole grain rolls and some fruit and dinner is done!
