I have cream of chicken soup and chicken legs. What can I make with these ingredients?
Check out this recipe for something called Michigan Chicken. You just need a couple other ingredients:
I have turkey, tomatoes, stock, onion and curry powder. Can I make a curry? I don't have almonds, yogurt, or other spices.
I'd skip the curry powder and just make soup. You have the ingredients for that.
What can I make using these ingredients?
small raw potato
i forgot to say, skip the potato, though
I am trying to have more creative ideas for my green veggies. I have a pretty good pantry.
I mix 1/2 avocado with 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese. Don't see why you can't throw some broccoli into the mix. I'm going to try it. I also like to sprinkle my avocado with a little fresh lemon juice. Serve this on a bed of kale. I've also done an avocado, hard boiled egg, kale and broccoli salad with a yogurt and balsamic dressing using a little honey to sweeten the dressing. Hope this helps.
I have banana peppers, tomatoes, cream cheese, bacon bits, and bacon. What can I make?
wow, if only you had potatoes, this all sounds to me like a very delicious baked potato waiting to happen
Aside from that, you could make a great dip, with bacon on the side.
Just take the banana peppers, tomatoes, cream cheese, bacon bits and mix them in a food procesor or by hand.
I need to use up some of the stuff in my cupboard. I have chocolate, marshmallows, flour, cereal, dried fruit, sugar, honey, coconut, etc.
Any ideas. I am going to a big bring and share party tomorrow.
YOu could essentially make Rice Krispie treat type things with the marshallows, nuts, etc.

I agree on the Caprise - yummy! Also if you have some bread, make Bruschetta. Chop tomato with basil, course salt, pepper and shredded mozzarella. Broil in the oven.
I have 1% milk, onions, and potatoes.
Potato soup! Do a search on "potato soup recipe" to find a recipe that calls for ingredients closely matching those you have on hand.

I have scallops, lemon, orange peppers, chicken stock, garlic, and pasta. What can I make with this?
Oh, I forgot...add some lemon zest to the sauce right before its done, and after it's finished (ie, already on your plate). Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over top. You want to lemon at the end. It tastes acidic, but in its natural state it is alkaline. Adding heat makes it more acidic and not so good for your digestive system (the closer to raw the better).
What can I make with apples, butter, flour, three eggs, syrup, and raisin bran? I'm limited to these ingredients at my beach house.
Cook sliced, peeled apples in water until soft. Drain, then add syrup to sweeten. Cut the flour with the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Roll out into dough. Cut into wedges or rounds. Fill with apples, fold over. Bake in the oven as apple turnovers.
The raisin bran doesn't come into it, but you could eat it dry as a snack later.

I have flour, sugar, milk, eggs, and cinnamon.
By S Long
Is it all-purpose or self-rising? If self-rising, you can do this. If all purpose, you'll need to add a little baking powder to the flour.
Then add an egg and milk. Make a dough. Roll or pat out the dough into a rectangle. Cover with a little soft butter or margarine and cover that with sugar and cinnamon.
Roll like a jelly roll and cut into slices. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake until cinnamon rolls are done.
I have hamburger, cheese, biscuit dough, onions, and tomato products.
By Dawn B
You could make a "cheeseburger pie"...although you didn't say now many servings you needed.
Basically, it's a recipe my mom made. She layered the bottom of a casserole dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce. Then, she sauteed ground beef, onions (and sometimes green pepper or celery, if we had some), seasoning it with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Then she topped the cooked meat layer with shredded or diced cheese (She usually made two sets of layers but you don't need to). Just add more tomato sauce, and finish it off with a layer of bread crumbs.
Heat in a 350F oven until the crumbs are browned, maybe 15 minutes. Or you could use your biscuit dough, that would be even better! Cook the casserole until the biscuits are done, at the temperature and however long it says to cook them.
It was pretty cheap, and it tasted good. She also served it with wedges of lettuce, if we had some, so it really was like a cheese burger.
