I love this recipe because it has a lot of different flavor combinations and the noodles give it a crunchy texture. Best of all, it is quick to prepare and it is perfect for picnics and potlucks, or any gathering! NOTE – Don’t be afraid to add extra veggies/nuts – I use broccoli and cauliflower. Sunflower seeds are also very good in this salad.


1 (16oz.) Package Coleslaw Mix
5 Green Onions
1 C. Broccoli, chopped fine
1/2 C. Butter/Margarine 1/4 C. Sesame Seeds
2 (3oz.) Packages Ramen Noodles, broken
1 (2oz.) Package Slivered Almonds

DRESSING: (use more or less to suit your taste – I like less oil and more vinegar)
1/2C. Sugar
1/2C. Vinegar 1/4C. Oil
1T. Soy Sauce
SPECIAL NOTE: Being I love crunchy food – I mix my ramen noodle mixture in prior to serving – If I feel I am not going to eat all of the coleslaw – I save my crunchy stuff in a special container – then mix it when I go to eat it……So I have it on hand I ALWAYS make double batches of the noodle mixture and my dressing.

Mix sugar, vinegar, oil, and soy sauce in jar and shake until well mixed. Chill

Slice onions, then add to the slaw and broccoli – mix and set aside. Melt butter in skillet; add seasoning packet, sesame seeds, almonds and noodles while stirring consistently, sauté until lightly browned once browned place on a cookie sheet spreading it out then set aside and allow to cool. Just before serving, mix everything together and serve.

Pub Cheese Spread

Pub Cheese Spread

Fall Gathering Time bring on the Snacks!!! I will be the first to admit – this pub spread is not my favorite BUT so many others really liked it – I had to post it!

6 ounces dark amber or lager beer, room temperature
8 ounces mild cheddar freshly grated
1 – 7.5 oz Tub Philadelphia Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup Chopped – Green Onions/Chives – Use some in Spread and some garnishing (see note)

Pour the beer into a liquid measuring cup – stir/whisk the beer to remove as much carbonation as possible. Set it aside.

Place the cheeses and garlic in a food processor and pulse until it’s in coarse crumbs.
Add the Worcestershire, mustard, hot sauce and green onions/chives – blend until combined. With the processor on, slowly stream in the beer until the mixture is smooth, about 5 full
minutes. The cheese will look mousse-like. Scoop it into a bowl, top it with the green onions/chives. Serve with crackers, pita chips, pretzels, bagel chips, veggie sticks or whatever you prefer!

NOTE: We like green onions and chives and the onion flavor, so I tend to use more.
