Whipped Mediterranean Feta Dip

Sometimes you need to have a good dip on hand for friends or just for yourself. My family loves this dip as it is similar to tzatziki and you can customize it with the exact amount of garlic you like (I always add extra!). With the cold weather and snow headed our way it seemed…

Mac & Cheese Pizza Bites

Verdict:  These were the hit of the party! Seriously. They were yummy macaroni and cheese with a bit of pizza flavor from the spices and the pepperoni, These are the perfect size for a 2-4 bite size hearty appetizer.  I couldn’t keep these on the table. They were gone in a flash. Hint: They are a…

Beef Barley Soup Slow Cooker

The cold has returned to Michigan. Not much snow here other than the banks around the driveways and one the roadsides. I can actually see grass on my front lawn in February? That is pretty much unheard of. I do know that if things follow the usual path we will have at least 2 more…

Sloppy Joe Sliders

Simple meals that don’t take a lot of time and are generally things I keep on hand are what I strive to make each day. I don’t know about your family but mine love the Hawaiian sliders. You can either use the Hawaiian dinner rolls which are a bit larger or the little slider rolls…

Banana Cupcakes

Our grocery store has a spot for bananas that they sell much cheaper than the other bananas because they are just starting to get spots on them and most people won’t buy them. If you are willing to make something right away or take them home and freeze them they can be a great buy!…

Potato, Egg, and Cheese Waffles

Thursday is our usual Breakfast for Dinner meal. Thursdays are the day that everything seems to be scheduled at once so we have to have something super easy on hand to make for dinner. When I first suggested this meal no one understood what I wanted to try. They thought I was mixing potatoes into…

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

I found a cheap cut of beef on sale a few weeks ago and froze it because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. Then I remembered my kids had been talking about going out for Chinese recently. Chinese food, Mexican food, and Italian are the foods we go out for the…

Semi Homemade Salisbury Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes

I am really into semi homemade meals right now. When I have the time I love making meatballs from scratch. If I remember, I try to make a huge batch and freeze them for busy nights. But, that always doesn’t work out as I have no meatballs in the freezer or I really want meatballs…

School Lunch Brownies

When we were in school they always had these big pans of brownies they served for desserts. They were thick and chewy and had a layer of butter cream frosting. Now, most people like the edges of the brownies (they sell pans that allow you to have just edges) but I am a center of…
