Here's a recipe for you: Take two tickets to Paula Deen's Jan. 15 appearance at the Murat Theatre at Old National Center (a benefit for Sycamore Services) and add two autographed items--her 2011 calendar “Best Dishes” and a copy of her book “The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cook Book.”

The result? The prize in this week's ticket giveaway.

Your culinary skills won't help you win--I'll be picking a winner at random--but it might give readers some holiday cooking ideas.

Good luck.

    My favorite holiday treat....I whip real whipping cream to serve on pie. Add a dollop of that to the top of your coffee and sip the coffee through the cream. It's a great way to end a holiday meal!

    1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
    3 Cups - crushed Oreos

  • Paula Deen
    3 frozen boneless skineless chicken breasts
    1 packet taco seasoning
    1 c. chicken broth or water
    Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.

    Hardly cooking! Nice for tacos, sandwiches, in soup or salad.
  • Wow!
    My recipe would be for free tickets in the Great Recession would be great since the ticket price range is $74.50 to $138!!! to see a cook???

  • Scrooge
    Obviously, you checked the site, so you know that this is a charity event for Sycamore Springs. No, not everyone can afford such high-ticket charitable events, but that's no reason to put down the guest involved.
    Happy holidays,
  • Pick Me, Pick Me!
    I would love the tickets as well. Thank you
  • Grilled Cheese

  • Scalloped Ham and Potatoes
    Slice potatoes thinly, top with 1-2 Tablespoon flour, season with salt and pepper, add shredded cheese, pats of butter and diced ham. Repeat layers until casserole dish is mostly full. (End with cheese on top.) Pour milk over mixture until about half full. Bake at 350 for an hour.

    Easy and yummy--made a great dinner last night! (Also a great way to use up leftover ham.)
  • Pepper Chicken
    Preheat broiler. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil. Stir together 1/3 c. olive oil, 3/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. black pepper and 1/4 tsp. crushed dried oregano in a large bowl.

Arrange in baking pan without crowding and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat, stirring once, until chicken is just cooked through and vegetables are lightly charred, about 8 minutes. Serve with hummus and toasted pita bread.

  • Paula & Grape Salad
    would love to attend the show ... A fan of Paula's southern style.

    Grape Salad
    � 4-5 pounds seedless grapes (I use a variety for color, texture & sweetness)
    � 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (can use low fat)
    � 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream (can use low fat)
    � 1/2 cup white sugar (I use granulated Splenda)
    � 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    � 4 ounces chopped pecans (1 cup)
    ââ?¬Â¢ 2 tablespoons to 1 cup brown sugar (I use light, granulated if you can find it ââ?¬â?? works best)(can also substitute Splendaââ?¬â?¢s brown sugar)
    1. Wash and dry grapes.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese (bring to room temperature for easy mixing), sour cream, sugar and vanilla.
    3. Add grapes and mix until evenly incorporated. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans and refrigerate until serving.
    This is a recipe that is easily adapted based on grapes and diet needs. I have also cut the ingredients in half and used a combination of berries, if you prefer berries over grapes�.adjust sugars to sweetness of the berries.

    Let them cool for 30 minutes. Spread peanut butter on top letting it melt into the brownies. Refrigerate for about an hour. Top peanut with chocolate frosting and serve. For a special treat sprinkle crushed candies such as reese cups or m&ms on top. A crowd pleaser!
  • Would make my wife very happy
    My wife is a very good cook and that makes me quite lucky. She loves Paula Deen and watches her show at work when she is not doing hair. To win the tickets would make her year as she has been sick for five years and just now is getting better.
    My very simple recipe for a nearly perfect grilled cheese is as follows:

    Two chilled pieces of whole wheat or gluten free bread
    Butter also chilled because melted ccoks too fast
    Two pieces of Muenster cheese with two 1/8" slabs of butter on each outer side.
    Use no oil or the sandwich gets too soggy.
    Medium heat and turn frequently until it looks just past golden brown.

    Cheese should be just melted enough to bond the bread together.
  • #1 FAN
    Butter makes anything taste better! Right Paula?
  • Add ...
    Just add a pound of butter to anything!!!
  • Pick me! Pick me!
    Her cooking shows are always fun - I would love to go!

    1 (8 oz.) cream cheese
    1 (6 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
    2 pkgs. (3 oz. each) Buddig corned beef
    2 tbsp. Thousand Island Dressing

    Drain sauerkraut, mix with cream cheese and Swiss cheese. Add diced corned beef and Thousand Island dressing. Either microwave or heat on stove until cheeses are melted. Serve warm in a small crock pot. Serve with crackers or cocktail rye bread.
  • Nice n Easy
    Just take a package or two of soft cream cheese and whip with your favorite Harry & David's dressing. Serve with Wheat Thins. My favorite is the spicy variety of Harry & David's. Good Stuff.
  • Paula Deen tickets
    I am a huge fan of her show on the Food Network. It would be amazing to see her in person!
  • Fun for family
    This would be a fun gift to give to my wife and daughter.
    Recipe? I have no idea since I don't cook. Maybe chips, refried beans and cheese, combine, and heat in microwave until cheese is melted. Eat while hot.

  • Easy Does It
    Fresh Tomato Salsa
    â?¢ 2-3 medium sized fresh tomatoes (from 1 lb to 1 1/2 lb), stems removed, finely diced
    â?¢ 1/2 red onion, finely diced
    � 1 jalapeño chili pepper (stems, ribs, seeds removed), finely diced
    â?¢ 1 serano chili pepper (stems, ribs, seeds removed), finely diced
    â?¢ Juice of one lime
    â?¢ 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    â?¢ Salt and pepper to taste
    â?¢ Optional: oregano and or cumin to taste
    1 Start with chopping up 2 medium sized fresh tomatoes. Prepare the chilies. Be very careful while handling these hot peppers. If you can, avoid touching them with your hands. Use a fork to cut up the chilies over a small plate, or use a paper towel to protect your hands. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and hot water after handling and avoid touching your eyes for several hours. Set aside some of the seeds from the peppers. If the salsa isn't hot enough, you can add a few for heat.
    2 Combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Taste. If the chilies make the salsa too hot, add some more chopped tomato. If not hot enough, carefully add a few of the seeds from the chilies, or add some ground cumin.

    Over-the-Rainbow Macaroni and Cheese
    Recipe created by Patti LaBelle
    Oprah.com | January 01, 2006 Patti LaBelle says that the sure sign of a good cook is if their macaroni and cheese will make you cry! According to Oprah, Patti's version just might bring tears to your eyes.

    Over-the-Rainbow Macaroni and Cheese
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 pound elbow macaroni
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon butter
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Muenster cheese
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack
    2 cups half-and-half
    1 cup (8 ounces) Velveeta , cut into small cubes
    2 large eggs , lightly beaten
    1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2-quart casserole.

    Bring the large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the oil, then the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni is just tender, about 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain well. Return to the cooking pot.

    In a small saucepan, melt eight tablespoons of the butter. Stir into the macaroni. In a large bowl, mix the Muenster, mild and sharp Cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses. To the macaroni, add the half-and-half, 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, the cubed Velveeta, and the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the buttered casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and dot with the remaining one tablespoon of butter.

    Bake until it's bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.

  • <3 PAULA!

    Did you know that Hershey's now sells unwrapped kisses packaged for baking, so you don't have to unwrap all the little chocolates?

    Prep Time: 20 minutes

    Cook Time: 8 minutes

    Chilling time: 6 hours

    Total Time: 6 hours, 28 minutes

    Yield: 48 cookies

    8 oz. pkg. milk chocolate kisses
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    3/4 cup peanut butter
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp. milk
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1-1/4 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    more granulated sugar

    Remove wrappers from chocolate. Beat butter and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Cover tightly and chill for 4-8 hours in fridge.

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate piece into center of each cookie; cookie will crack slightly around edges. Let stand on cookie sheets for 3-4 minutes, then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 48 cookies

    To freeze, shape dough into balls but do not roll in sugar. Place on waxed paper lined cookie sheets and freeze until firm. Pack into hard sided freezer containers; label, and freeze up to 3 months. To bake, roll frozen dough into sugar, then bake as directed, adding 3-6 minutes to the baking time.

    Note: the proportions and amounts of ingredients in this recipe are correct. Remember, tsp. stands for teaspoon, NOT tablespoon. That means a measuring teaspoon, not a coffee spoon, or a soup spoon.

  • Deen on Art of the Matter
    Lou, just wanted to let your readers know that I got to interview Paula Deen for the Art of the Matter - it will air this weekend on WFYI 90.1 - Friday at 8pm and Sat at 4pm. She was a really a delight to chat with. We talked about a good recipe for pecan pie. I'm working on one with Grand Marnier and some chocolate (of course) mixed in. She recommended a layer or creme cheese. And I always use the dark Kahro syrup!

    Crush a couple garlic gloves to taste, and add in.

    Add 3-4 tablespoons tahini, to taste.

    Add juice of up to one whole lemon, to taste. Start slow!

    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Mix everything up, using the reserved bean liquid to moisten, to desired consistency.

    Top with a sprinkle of paprika, a drizzle of olive oil and chopped parsley.

    Scoop with pita chips!

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
