It occurred to me that I never put a deadline for the Kersten Kolache Giveaway Contest, so I figure that is why there was not a big rush to get y'all's recipe in. Here's the dealio: If you want a chance to win, get your recipe in by February 6th. That is one more week. Right now we only have one person entered, so your chances of winning as of right now are 50/50.  Please post your recipe idea to this post Giveaway Post for your chance to win. It's easy to play and win.

Thanks a million!

  1. Here is my FIFTH try at this!!! These may be too easy for you!
    Paula Deen's Brie En Croute (I expect the pastry to be cut into a heart or flower!)
    1 sheet frozen puff pastry, pre-packaged
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1/2 cup walnuts
    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 (8-ounce) wheel Brie
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    Crackers, for serving
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    Defrost puff pastry for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and unfold.

    In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the walnuts in the butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and stir until walnuts are coated well. Place the walnut mixture on top of the Brie and sprinkle the brown sugar over the mixture. Lay the puff pastry out on a flat surface. Place the brie in the center of the pastry. Gather up the edges of the brie, pressing around the brie and gather at the top. Gently squeeze together the excess dough and tie together with a piece of kitchen twine. Brush the beaten egg over top and side of Brie. Place Brie on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

    Serve with crackers.

    To give a special look, cut extra pastry into heart or flower shapes and bake until golden

    Lyndsie's Dr.Pepper Meatballs

    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1.Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2.Place the turkey, egg, bread crumbs, ranch dressing mix, and 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce into a mixing bowl along with 3 tablespoons of the minced onion, and 3 tablespoons of the minced bell pepper. Set the remaining onion and bell pepper aside. Form the turkey mixture into 2 inch meatballs, and place into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    3.Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, stir the remaining onion and bell pepper in a bowl along with the Dr. Pepper®, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, diced tomatoes, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Once the meatballs have cooked for 15 minutes, remove them from the oven and pour the sauce overtop. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and return to the oven.
