  • Crispy Hash Brown Waffles by Rachael Ray!

    This is a great recipe especially if you are traveling in an RV, and you can pile your eggs and bacon on top!  I substituted the potatoes with the frozen kind, lol’s but I did let them thaw. It worked great so save yourself the trouble of peeling and shredding potatoes.

    3 potatoes, peeled and shredded
    1/4 cup grated red onion
    1 egg
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1 tablespoon horseradish
    2 tablespoons melted butter

    Yields: 4 waffles

    Preheat waffle maker to the highest heat.

    Liberally salt potatoes and lay them out on a stack of paper towels to drain. Stack a few paper towels on top, press down and let sit for a few minutes.

    While potatoes drain, whisk together the onion, egg, sour cream, horseradish and pepper in a large bowl. Add drained potatoes to bowl and fold until combined.

    Brush hot waffle maker with melted butter. Evenly spread potato mixture around the waffle maker. Close and cook for 12 minutes or until potatoes are crispy and brown.


  • Orange Marmalade Rum Cake! Yummy

    Well, I made a batch of  marmalade and it turned out way to thick. Couldn’t even spread it on my bagels! So, I decided I’d make a rum glaze and add the marmalade to it.  Thus, the orange marmalade rum cake was born! lol’s

    Directions: One box of yellow cake mix with pudding. (substitute with orange cake mix if you like) Bake in a bundt pan 30 to 35 minutes. Mix 1/2 cup of rum (if you can handle it) otherwise, 1 tablespoon of rum, 1/4 cup of orange juice to 1/4 cup  of marmalade (add a little more if you want), stir and simmer for about 5 minutes. Glaze the cake asap and dig in!

    This is a cake for grown ups! So go ahead, use 1/2 cup of rum. You know you can handle it!
