Put in 3 quart saucepan and bring to a boil, and stir to dissolve cubes:
1-1/2 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
10-ounce package frozen broccoli cuts
Cook till broccoli is tender.
In a frying pan melt:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons chopped onions
Brown the onions well and cream in:
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
When smooth, add:
2 cups milk
Stir mixture over low heat until it resembles a white sauce. Add:
1 cup Velveeta cheese, cut in cubes or shredded
Stir till cheese is melted and then add to the broccoli mixture in saucepan. Heat well, and serve.
Linda's note: I have doubled this recipe many times, using a Dutch Oven.
1/4 butter (1/2 stick), at room temperature
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk
Two 6-1/2 ounce cans tuna, drained and flaked
1 can peas and carrots, drained
Melt butter; blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Cook over low heat till thickened and smooth. Add tuna and vegetables. Heat to warm tuna and vegetables.
Serve over toast, cooked rice or noodles. Even mashed potatoes will work.
BLUEBERRY BREAD SUPREME
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup blueberries (fresh, frozen or canned - (I used blueberry pie filling and it makes a very moist bread)
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoon melted butter
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Beat egg; add sugar; mix well. Stir in melted butter and buttermilk. Blend in dry ingredients; stirring just until moistened.
Fold in blueberries and nuts.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven at 350ºF about 30 to 40 minutes, or till wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Turn onto rack and let cool. Wrap with saran or foil when cooled.
LAURA'S VERSATILE CAKE
1 box cake mix, any flavor
3 large eggs, beaten
1 can pie filling, any flavor
In bowl, dump dry cake mix, eggs and pie filling. Stir together until well mixed. Bake in greased 9x13 pan, at 350ºF for 35 minutes or test with toothpick for doneness.
Pair flavors of cake mix and pie filling.
Apple filling with maybe butter pecan cake mix.
Cherry pie filling with a devil's food cake mix, etc.
I enjoy a pineapple cake mix with blueberry filling.
FOR AN EXTRA INCH TO THE HIPS: Chop room temperature cream cheese into chunks. Poke the chunks randomly into the batter after pouring it in the baking pan. Make sure the cheese is in deep. Continue to bake. I do this with a strawberry cake mix and strawberry filling and also the blueberry filling.
PEANUT BUTTER PIE
8 ounce cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (use a name brand)
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 carton Cool Whip
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts (optional)
Whip the cream cheese until soft and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter and the powdered sugar slowly. Fold in 3/4 cup of the Cool Whip.
Now you have a choice, you can just put in a metal pie pan, smooth and freeze, or you can use a cookie crumb crust (at grocery stores). In either case, top with remaining 1/4 Cool Whip.
Garnish with 1/4 cup chopped peanuts.
Freeze for 2 hours or till ready to serve. Refreeze any leftovers.
Serves 6 to 10.
Note: I have used a grated Hershey's chocolate candy bar in place of the peanuts, and have had no complaints. I have also use the chocolate wafer pie crust. ://://://://://://://://://://://://
