Au Jus Roast Beef Hawaiian Sliders


Yes, more sliders. I love these little sandwiches during this busy time of year. I keep a package of rolls on hand to feed my kids friends, have a quick dinner on nights I don’t want to cook (add a hearty salad – believe me it works), or to serve on those football game days….

Ground Beef Shawarma Quinoa Bowl


With all the parties this month I know we are going to over do the cookies, appetizers, and candy. I wanted to make something that felt kind of healthy and that wasn’t too heavy. My family loves shawarma and I had ground beef thawing for dinner. I decided to twist the usual beef shawarma by…

Top 3 Recipes from November 2017


I realized as I looked over the top 5 recipes from this month that many of you seemed to feel like I did. That you needed simple meals and were just trying to get dinner on the table in as little time as possible. The Cacio e Pepe (click for link to recipe), pictured above…

Corn Dog Casserole


We have a bunch of hot dogs leftover from a cookout earlier this year. They have been sitting in the freezer since September waiting for me to figure out what to do with them. I saw a picture of a corn dog casserole in a magazine and thought I can figure that out! Now, we…

Mexican Doritos Casserole


When I read this recipe I thought I couldn’t do it. It had canned cream of chicken soup in it. I usually do not make anything with canned cream of “something” soups. I either make my own version or substitute another ingredient. But, as it nears the holidays I am less inclined to fuss and…

Slow Cooker Sauerbraten


This is not a dish you want to make if you want it for dinner tonight. You can make it but it will not be as good as if you plan ahead a bit and let it marinate for 2-3 days. Yes, that is days. Verdict: This roast has tons of flavor. When it sits…

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steaks


I loved Salisbury Steaks growing up. We would get the TV dinners (remember when they were called that?) with the metal three tray compartments. I would either get Fried Chicken or Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes in one little compartment and corn in the other. They were a great treat growing up. I don’t know…

Shepherd’s Pie with Cheesy Tater Tot Topping


Working the remnants of my refrigerator and freezer to get as many meals out of them as possible. We are getting down to the bottom of the meat freezer and have a bunch of single items in the regular freezer. I saw this idea on a blog post a week or so ago and thought…

Slow Cooker Beef Quinoa Bowl with Red Wine Sauce


This recipe was totally made up on the spot. I am trying to get through the end of the month with buying as little as possible. We were out of chicken and beef stock so I didn’t want to go buy more. What works instead? Wine! Yes, I have extra wine on hand. Doesn’t everyone….

Slow Cooker Chili


Slow Cooker chili is always a hit. It is such a simple dish to make and such a great dish to share. The best things is that you can change the meat, change the spices, and you have a whole new chili dish! Play with this and make something new just for you! This is…

Taco Meatloaf


When my kids have friends visiting for dinner I try to keep dinner as”normal” as I can.  This was tough as my daughter’s friend is a bit picky as far as textures go. She doesn’t eat pasta, will only eat cheese if it is cooked and drinks more milk than anyone else I have ever…
