I was browsing through the "Etsy Sellers Who Blog" ring this morning, but I didn't get far. Anything... snared me with the first entry on her page, a call for recipes!

How fun is that? I was on it in a flash, with a recipe for a vegetable casserole so good, it's original name has been lost. We just call it "Veggie Dessert". I swear, I think we'd all fall into dead faints if this weren't served at any and every holiday meal we sit down to. Don't be deceived by the Velveeta. This stuff is so good, even people who say they don't like vegetables come back for seconds. It's so good, one 9X13 inch dish of it is not enough, and Mom always makes a double batch. (Have I raved about it long enough? Too long?)

One warning: We estimate the calorie load at roughly a bazillion calories per bite. Here's the recipe:


Ritz Crackers
2 one-pound bags of California mix frozen vegetables, or similar
12 oz. Velveeta
2 cubes of butter

Spread the vegetables evenly in a 9"X13" pan. Melt the Velveeta with 1 cube of butter, stirring to mix well, and pour over the vegetables. Crumble one sleeve of Ritz crackers; sprinkle them over the veggies and cheese. Melt the other cube of butter and drizzle over the top.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 45 minutes, until vegetables are tender and top is nicely golden and crunchy.

Forgot to mention that it's really simple, too.
