Twice baked potaotes


Bake potatoes in oven for about an hour at 400

Pull out, when cool enough to touch cut down the middle and scoop out the middle leaving the shell.

Mix together potatoes, milk, cheese and butter put back into the potatoes shell and top with more cheese.

Bake another 15 min in oven.

You could substitute the milk for sour cream or even cream cheese and it would be good.


Add your recipe here Ryan!


Ryan this is one you can make

Hamburger patties
Avocado or guacamole
A1 sauce

Grill hamburgers tell there done. I like mine well done. In the last minute add sliced cheese on top to melt.

Since Ryan doesn't like ketchup we stated putting either smashed up avocados or making guacamole and topping our hamburgs with that.

Adding A1 sauce is good as well.

Serve with french fries


Box of shake-n-bake

Open box of shake-n-bake take out bag that is inside pour the bread crumbs and chicken into. Shake the bag and place on baking pan and cook tell done.

Serve with potatoes, rice, corn, or green beans

I asked Ryan to make this because I was at work and it was simple for him to make. I come home and he hadn't started. I asked him why and he said I didn't know how to make it. I said you just put it in the bag and shake it and he said is thats all it seemed to easy.

Roasted Chicken

This is a Rachel Ray one pot chicken dinner that I adapted.

2 chicken breast
4-5 red potatoes
2 onions ( I used to use one but that was never enough for my onion loving husband)
1/2 bag of carrots
olive oil

Adjust quantities to what you like and how many people are eating

Mix everything together put in roaster and bake at 425 for 40 min.

If using boneless chicken breast I don't add them tell the last 10-15 min so they don't get to dry


I've only made this once but crab is Ryan's favorite so I should do it again. I found this recipe here

Here is a slightly altered recipe:

1/4 c. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced

Melt butter with olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, then stir in garlic, thyme and rosemary. Remove from heat. Broil veggies with some butter add the crab for the last 4 minutes brushing with butter, until crab is heated through thoroughly. Remaining butter may be used as dipping sauce
