1 c all-purpose flour

1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans

1 c white sugar

1/2 c butter, melted

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

1 tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9 inch pie pan. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cranberries and the nuts, and toss to coat. Stir in the butter, beaten eggs, and almond extract. If you are using frozen cranberries, the mixture will be very thick. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press the pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan.

Grand Mama's Ground Beef Casserole

1 lb ground beef

1 (8 oz) pkg egg noodles

1 tsp white sugar

1 c sour cream

1 tsp salt

1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese

1 tsp garlic salt

1 large white onion, diced

2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce

1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese, or to taste

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5-7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Mix sugar, salt, garlic salt and tomato sauce into ground beef; simmer until flavors blend, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cover skillet, and cool to room temperature. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool slightly. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Mix sour cream, cream cheese, and onion in a bowl. Scoop half the noodles into the prepared casserole dish; top with half the sour cream mixture. Spoon half the ground beef mixture atop sour cream layer. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients. Top casserole with cheese. Bake until cheese has browned, 25-30 minutes.

"Ba Da Bing" Pork Chops

1 c Italian-style salad dressing

1/4 c hot pepper sauce

1/2 c Worcestershire sauce

1 lime, juiced

1/2 c applesauce

6 bone-in pork chops

Mix together the Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce, applesauce, hot pepper sauce, and lime juice in a bowl. Pour the marinade over the pork chops, and refrigerate in marinade for 6 hours or overnight. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chops from the marinade, and pour marinade into a saucepan. Bring the marinade to a boil over medium heat, and allow to boil for about 1 minute. Place the pork chops onto the preheated grill, and grill until well browned and no longer pink in the middle, about 6 minutes per side, basting the chops occasionally with the marinade. Allow the marinade baste to cook completely onto the chops. Serve with your green veggies and perhaps some grilled roasted potatoes.
