Taco Stroganoff

I seem to be playing around with the stroganoff recipes of late.  This one is an interesting twist. 
I thought my bowl plate would be a fun way to eat this dish. 
A little it of everything.
Chop an onion
Saute the onion and brown the ground beef.  Drain.
Add 1/2 cup water
One packet of taco seasoning mix.
Add one can corn drained.
1 8 oz package chive and onion flavored cream cheese
Mix that well until he cream cheese is melted.
Add 1 cup shredded cheese.  I put too much cheese because you know you can never have too much cheese but you can.  It became too thick.
Stir well.
Serve over cooked egg noodles.

Slow Roasted Chicken Wings

What would football season be without chicken wings.  I have a good recipe for hot wings so when I found this recipe for roasted wings I thought it would be a nice change of pace.  Of course you need to do a little planning and have plenty of time because it takes like 4 hours to make these wings but it is worth it.
The seasoning on these wings are really good.  It is different from traditional hot wings.  
This is all you need and a little time to make some really flavorful and tender wings.
I decided to mix the seasoning in a zip lock bag.  Start with 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Shake the bag well to mix.
Dry the thawed wings well.
Add to the bag and shake to coat.
You will need a cookie sheet.  I put a piece of foil in the bottom for ease of cleanup.  The add a rack to the cookie sheet. I sprayed to too so they wouldn't stick.  Not sure if I needed to or not but it made me feel better.  The rack will keep the air moving around the wings so they will get crispy on bottom.
Look at all the seasoning on these wings.  Place in a preheated 250 oven.
After one hour. Rotate the pan in the oven.
After two hours.  Rotate the pan.
After three hours.  Rotate the pan.
After four hours.  Ready to eat.
It was a wings kind of day.  Serve the wings with blue cheese or ranch dressing if you like and celery.
These were so good.  And as you can see very easy.

Slow Roasted Chicken Wings Recipe

3 lbs thawed chicken wings
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1 Tablespoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Preheat oven to 250.  Bake for 4 hours and rotate the pan every hour for even baking.

Crock Pot Boiled Peanuts

Today's recipe half of you will love and the other half with hate.  That is how it is with boiled peanuts. But to me boiled peanuts are a sure sign that fall is here.  I love them but my husband hates them.  I have friends that think they are slimy.  Now I will admit some are.  These were not.  This is an easy no fuss way to make them.  Cook up a batch before the games tomorrow.

Nothing better than warm boiled peanuts. 
This is all you need to get started.  Make sure your peanuts are green.
Add 1/3 cup kosher salt to the crock pot.  Yes I lined it.
Then add 2 quarts of water.
Stir to dissolve the salt.
Rinse the peanuts.
Then add them to the pot.  Stir well. Cover.  Cook on high for 5-6 hours.
After 5 hours I checked them.  Almost done.
At the end of 6 hours this is what they looked like.
I poured them back in the strainer.
Then scooped up to enjoy during the game.

Crock Pot Boiled Peanuts Recipe

2 lbs green peanuts

Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

I know you hear this a lot but you know it is football season and I am always looking for red velvet items for our game day snacks. This was a very easy cookie to mix up before the big game.  During this time of year always keep at least one box of red velvet cake mix in the pantry because there are so many uses for it. 
Cake mix cookies are so easy and good.
You only need a few ingredients.
Start with one softened stick of butter and a softened 8 oz block of cream cheese.
I'm using my new spatula that I bought at Paula Deen's place.
Whip this until nice and fluffy.
Add one egg
1 teaspoon vanilla.  I used my vanilla bean paste.
See all the little specs of vanilla bean.
Now add the cake mix.  Mix well.
Add 1 cup white chocolate chips.
Mix well.
Get out the cookie scoop
Scoop on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
The tops will be a little gooey still when they are done. 
And enjoy on game day.  You might have to enjoy one after every touchdown.
