Tried and True Recipes on Tuesday

From my trusty "hits counter" on my blog, I could tell that this was very popular last week, so I thought we'd continue it. Again, these are recipes that are favorites at our house, or old family favorites, or church and other event favorites. I'll try to give credit where credit is due as often as I can. Happy cooking!

Jack Daniel's Meatballs

1 38 oz. bag of frozen meatballs (Rosina's are good, or you can make your own) thawed
1 19 oz. bottle "Jack Daniel's Original No. 7 BBQ Sauce"
1 envelope Lipton dry onion soup mix
1 12 oz. jar apricot preserves

Combine BBQ sauce, soup mix and preserves in saucepan over medium heat. Add meatballs and bring to a boil. You can then put these in a crock pot on Low or Keep Warm setting if they are for a party or get together.

Brownie Chip Cookies

(These are so easy and convenient! I called my mom in a panic once because I had lost the recipe in my move to Oklahoma and needed it for a school event).

1 Family size brownie mix
2 eggs
1/4 C oil
1 C (6 oz.) chocolate, peanut butter, or white chocolate baking chips
1 can of frosting (optional)
M&M candies (optional)

Mix above ingredients together; stir in baking chips at the end. Bake 2" apart on greased cookie sheets at 350 degrees for 10-12 min. Do not over bake! Cool on racks. After cooling you can frost with chocolate or vanilla frosting (canned or homemade) or you can push M&Ms into the tops when just out of the oven.

Aunt Sis' (Ruth Ann Martin) Rhubarb Preserves

5 C Rhubarb
3 C sugar
2 TBSP butter
1 pkg. wild strawberry Jello (3 oz.)

Combine rhubarb and sugar; let stand overnight. Boil 12-15 min. Remove from heat and add Jello. Stir well; add butter. Pour into jars and seal. Keep in refrigerator.
