Beef Noodle Bake
From The Taste of Home Cookbook
Prep: 15 min.  Bake: 35 min.
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed and softened
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
7 cups uncooked wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the tomato sauce, sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, and garlic salt.

2. Place half of the noodles in a greased 9x13 baking dish; top with half of the beef mixture. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. 
Yields: 6 servings 
 No pictures of this was kind of a weird recipe. Not so sure that I like the cream cheese in it.
Barbecued Pork in the Slow Cooker
From: Fix it and forget it cookbook
Makes 6-8 Servings
2-3 lb. boneless pork roast (I used a pork loin (not tenderloin) cubed
2 onions, chopped into big chunks
12 oz bottle of BBQ sauce
1/4 cup of honey
sandwich buns or rolls

1. Place meat in slow cooker. Add onions, bbq sauce, and honey.
2. Cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
3. Use 2 forks to shred meat. 
4. Serve on rolls with sauce (and I add coleslaw on my sandwich!)
 We took this and the apple crisp to our friends from church who just had a baby almost 2 weeks ago. Both were DELICIOUS if I do say so myself! :)
Mom's Apple Crisp
From Pampered Chef's All The Best cookbook
Prep time: 25 minutes Microwave time: 14-16 minutes 

6 Granny Smith Apples (or any kind of apples), peeled, cored and sliced
8 long graham crackers coarsely chopped
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick or old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup (or 1 stick) of butter or margarine, melted
Vanilla Ice Cream (optional- but really, who wouldn't eat vanilla ice cream with this goodness!)

1. Peel, core and slice apples. Cut apples in half and place in a casserole dish (I used my large corning wear, this book tells you to use the pampered chef deep dish baker (I do not own this yet :)
2. Coarsely chop graham crackers (I used my food chopper from PC); place in large bowl. Add brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon. Mix well. Place butter in a microwave safe dish and cook on high for 1 minute or until melted. Add butter to dry ingredients; mix well. 
3. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over apples. Microwave on High 14-16 minutes uncovered or until apples are tender. Cool slightly. Serve warm topped with ice cream, if desired....that's a must!
