I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

What a Beautiful Day!
Another Easter and another birthday has passed for me. I was born on Easter and this is the second time since then my birthday has fallen on Easter! My daughter Mary and her family came for dinner and my grown up north Grandson, Evan, came last night, spent the night and had Easter breakfast with us! Plus the sun was shining and it seemed like spring. What more could a birthday girl want?
Pa Lloyd suggested another recipe for me to share. I used to make this often when our children were home, it sort of reminds me of a deep dish taco pizza. This one also warms up well. Just put it on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
Crescent Taco Hot Dish:
1 tube crescent rolls
1 pound hamburger
1 small-med onion, chopped
1- 8 oz tomato sauce
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
2 cups Doritos (crushed and divided)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, black olives and taco sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees; brown hamburger and onions, drain. Add tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Mix and simmer 10 minutes.
Separate tube of crescent rolls and press into bottom of greased 9x13 inch pan, sealing perforations. Sprinkle 1 cup crushed Doritos over crust, spoon meat mixture over chips. Top with sour cream, then sprinkle on shredded cheese then the remaining crushed Doritos on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares.
You may serve this with the lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and taco sauce if desired. A meal in itself. I hope you enjoy it!
Have a great week and hope for rain!
