I was reading another post and saw a recipe posted and thought why don't we just share our favorite recipes. We could start with summer favorites like salads and go on from there.
I will start with Grandpap's homemade baked beans
(If the guys at the mill where my husband works knew I was sharing they would go nuts. I've told them I can not give the recipe)
1 can regular baked beans
1 can butter beans
1 can kidney beans
1 clove garlic
1 cup ketchup
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
Cook bacon with garlic and onion until cooked. Place each can of beans along with cooked bacon, ketchup and brown sugar and cook in crock pot for 4 hours on high. (six on low)
I hope yal like them. My family loves grandpap's baked beans.

1 lb ground beef browned, with
chili powder to taste &
1 small diced onion
1 to 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (a little water to thin) &
2 cans Rotel diced tomatoes.
Pour a portion over a layer of cut up corn tortillas in casserole dish, then sprinkle w/
grated cheddar cheese.
Repeat layers of tortillas, meat mixture & cheese. I like to add a layer of
sliced black olives, too. You can also add other things to your liking. I like to add
1 can of refried beans, sometimes. Finish off w/cheddar cheese layer. (You can also add
a little Jack, Colby, or Mozzarella cheese on top if you like).
Cover w/foil & bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins. Serve with rice and beans on the side if you like, and a nice salad or guacamole. I also like to serve Tostitos, or some brand of Corn tortilla chips w/it. I don't usually add salt to anything, but you might want to add it to the ground meat as it's browning.

Becky, my Gammy used to make a very similar concoction, but she used chocolate wafers (the kind that are almost black--look like the cookie part of an oreo, color-wise), and didn't dip them in milk.
She stood them on end with whipped cream between them, then covered the whole thing with the rest of the whipped cream and dusted the top with some finely crushed cookie crumbs.
Into the freezer it went for at least a day--she called it "freezer cake" (very creative, that lady
). She would slice it on the diagonal--it made for an interesting presentation.
I loved it so much, I used to ask for it for my birthday.
Thanks for bringing back the memory!
