Recipe: Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Hi everyone!  It is so good to be back to regular blogging.  I hope you enjoyed the Labor Day holiday here in the U.S.  Sadly, it marks the end of summer for most people. Before the summer gets away from us, I thought that I would share a quick and easy salad recipe.  Enjoy! 


Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad


1 (12 ounce) package uncooked macaroni shells

3 slices cooked bacon 

1 cup mayonnaise 

3 tablespoons dry ranch salad dressing mix 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon pepper 

1/2 cup milk, or as needed 

1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese 


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente; drain. 

2. Place bacon on a microwavable plate and cook about 5 minutes or until evenly brown. Drain and chop. 

3. In a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and garlic pepper. Stir in milk until smooth. Place bacon, peas and cheese in bowl and toss to coat with dressing. Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Toss with additional milk if the salad seems a little dry.

TMTT: Wanchai Ferry

I absolutely love Chinese food and when I need a quick meal, I absolutely love Wanchai Ferry.  I prefer the dry dinner mix, but the ones available in the freezer section of the grocery store are just as good.See full size image

Recipe: Baked French Toast

this is a family favorite

from Paula Deen (Food Network)


  • 1 loaf French bread (13 to 16 ounces)
  • Butter, for pan
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash salt
  • Praline Topping, recipe follows


Slice French bread into 20 slices, 1-inch thick each. (Use any extra bread for garlic toast or bread crumbs). Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9 by 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended but not too bubbly. Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread Praline Topping evenly over the bread and bake for 45 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. Serve with Raspberry Syrup.

Praline Topping:

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and blend well. Spread over bread as directed above.
