Hi everyone, I'm new, but the community looks like it's off to a great start. So many of the recipe communities are never posted to. Here's a recipe from me to start off :)

Megan's burgers
**Amounts are approx. as I don't measure them out.**
1 lb of ground beef or chuck
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 1/2 tsp parsley
1 T wosheshure sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
salt and pepper *freshly ground is best*

mix all together preferably an hour before forming into patties and let sit and 'mingle' together in fridge.

Then seperate into 4 sections so each is about 1/4 lb. You can make them bigger if you like, that part is up to you.
Cook as you would any other burger... I use our George Foreman.

I've just recently started to add 1/2 cup shredded cheese.

This and 4 other recipes can be found on my journal memories under recipe. Or here.. as welll... Recipes gathered by Megan

I found this on-line. I wonder if it really is the Olive Garden minestone soup recipe? I love their soup, so if it is, wouldn't that be great for me?


Here's a recipe for Olive Garden's minestrone soup. There are a lot of ingredients but it is easy to make. Plus, that soup is awesome.


Yield: 10 servings
1 cup finely minced onion
1 cup finely minced celery
1 cup finely minced carrot
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/2 cup dry garbanzo beans
1/2 cup whole dried peas
1/2 cup dry kidney beans
1/2 cup dry small white beans
3/4 cup sliced carrots
3/4 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup raw rice or barley
3/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped (cored and seeded) bell pepper
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1 cup shell macaroni
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Pepper to taste
Garnish: grated Parmesan cheese


1. Cook onion, celery and carrot in butter on medium heat in large pot until brown, stirring occasionally. Add peas, beans and 3 quarts of water. Bring to boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until beans are almost tender, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours (check garbanzos because they will take the longest to cook).

2. Add remaining vegetables, rice and herbs. Add more water if necessary. Simmer 40 minutes.

3. Add macaroni, soy sauce and more water if needed. Simmer 20 minutes or until pasta is cooked. Add pepper.

4. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve with crusty garlic bread.
