Mini Baked Corn Dogs

We love having appetizer dinners every once in awhile. I am always looking for new ways to cook things or combine different flavors. My family has been on a HUGE corn dog streak lately for lunches. They are fine but they are deep fried and not the best for you. I thought I would try…

Simple Salisbury Steak

We had a couple pounds of ground beef to use up and we have had hamburgers several times at the end of last month and wanted to switch things up. Since I was still seeking comfort foods (I love the weather but always get a bit depressed before back to school time) I really wanted…

As we were coming to the end of the month I was digging into the bottom of the freezer (remember we do one big grocery shop a month) and we found more chicken breasts. I was feeling in the mood for comfort food (it is getting chilly at night again and I can see one…
