Taco Soup

This recipe was submitted by Jan Rennert. This is so yummy and doesn't heat up the house!!!

Things you will need:
2 lbs of Hamburger (cooked and drained)
2 lg cans of diced tomatoes
1 lg. can of tomato sauce
1 can of sweet corn (Drained)
1 can of Great White Northern Beans(drained and rinsed) (you can use pintos, kidney, red beans instead)
1pkg. Taco seasoning
grated cheese
sour cream

When the meat is cooked put it in a large pot and add all other ingredients. Let boil really good. The longer it cooks the better just because it mixes all the yummy flavors together. When you are ready to serve this put in individual bowls, sprinkle some grated cheese on top add a tsp. of sour cream on top and frito's. My family likes it with tortilla strips instead.
ENJOY!!! :)

Heavenly No Bake Cookies

This recipe is OH SO YUMMY!!!!  This is what you will need:
1C. butter           
1C. sugar            
2 Tbsp. cocoa  
1 tsp. vanilla    
1/2C. milk
3C. oats
1C. peanut butter
Wax paper on a cookie sheet

First you melt your butter in a pan. (While the butter is melting I measure out my oats and put in a separate bowl and set aside.) When it is melted then you add the sugar, cocoa and milk. Stir it really good and let it boil for about 2 mins. Make sure to keep stirring so you don't burn it. Then add the peanut butter and vanilla. Stir again until the peanut butter is all melted. When it's all melted pour the mixture into the bowl that the oats are in and mix all together. Mix well and drop by spoonfuls on the wax paper and then put them in the fridge to chill. These are sooooooo good!!!  ENJOY!!!
