Betty's Peaches and Cream Crumble


(2) 1 lb. 5 oz. cans peach pie filling (total of 42 ounces)
16 oz. sour cream
1 ½ cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
18.25 oz. box white cake mix
½ cup butter, cold and in slices
½ cup chopped pecans


Pour (2) 1 lb. 5 oz. cans peach pie filling into a 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch baking dish. Spread until even. Set aside. In a medium pot, mix 16 oz. sour cream with 1 ½ cups firmly packed light brown sugar. Place over low heat and stir until brown sugar dissolves. Spread sour cream-brown sugar mixture over peach pie filling layer. In a large bowl cut ½ cup butter into an 18.25 oz. white cake mix until it is the texture of coarse cornmeal. Add ½ cup chopped pecans and sprinkle topping evenly over the two layers in baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 25 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes to one-half hour. For best results, serve while warm.

Betty's Easiest, Best-Tasting Lasagna You'll Ever Make


1 pound lean ground beef (I use 4% fat ground beef.)
2 or 3 teaspoons bottled minced garlic (Or, use 1 fresh clove of garlic, minced.)
1 large chopped onion
28 oz. bottle of spaghetti sauce (I use Prego meat-flavored Italian sauce.)
1 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon sweet basil
salt and pepper to taste
16 oz. carton cottage cheese
8 oz. carton plain yogurt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
2 cups mozzarella cheese
8 oz. (1/2 of a 16 oz. pkg.) uncooked lasagna noodles
cooking spray for baking dish


In a large skillet, brown one pound of ground beef, along with 2 or 3 teaspoons minced garlic and one chopped onion over medium heat, stirring continually. When the meat is crumbly and the garlic and onion are clear, remove the skillet from the stove and stir in a 28 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce, 1 1/4 cups water, 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 teaspoons oregano, and 1 teaspoon sweet basil. Salt and pepper, if desired. Blend completely and set aside. This is the meat sauce mixture. In a medium to large mixing bowl, combine 16 oz. cottage cheese, 8 oz. plain yogurt 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and 2 eggs. Blend completely, and set aside. This is the cheese mixture. Now start assembling your layered lasagna casserole. Spray a 13-inch by 10-inch Pyrex dish (or similar baking dish) with cooking spray. Place 1/3 of the meat sauce mixture on the bottom, followed by 1/2 of the uncooked lasagna noodles, overlapped, 1/2 of the cheese mixture, and 1/2 of the grated mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers, and top with the remaining 1/3 of the meat sauce mixture. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for one hour in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees. Remove the foil, and bake 15 minutes longer. Let stand 20 minutes. Serve while hot. To serve, cut into squares, and remove them to individual serving plates with a spatula. All of my family and friends adore this lasagna--it is one of my favorite "go-to" recipes! Buon appetito!!!

"Melt-in-Your-Mouth" Oreo Truffle Ingredients:

1 package Oreo cookies, crushed in the food processor to fine crumbs
1-8 oz. package of cream cheese, at room temperature (fat free makes them too soft)
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
½ oz. paraffin , optional (from Betty: I added this, because it will make your coated truffles prettier and easier to handle; it is not necessary.)
