Southern Sausage and Rice Casserole


Yes, another sausage recipe. We are using up the last of the bulk sausage we bought this month. I have used it in many different dishes and my family is still not tired of sausage. That is the great thing. If you can make your dishes taste different from night to-night you can eat the…

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…

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…

Cheeseburger Tortellini Casserole


Whenever anyone asks how I come up with different meals I tell them take the things you like and the flavors you like and turn them into something else. Sandwiches turn into casserole or pizzas can be turned in soups. My kids ask for simple meals like a hamburger or hot dog every so often….

Garlic Potatoes Au Gratin


Having lots of computer problems in our house. My laptop is out to  be fixed so I writing on my tablet. Something that I am not used to at all. So please be a bit patient with me. Yesterday was the first day of school for both kids. Today my daughter has her first college…

Mexican Pierogi Casserole


How much are we traveling this summer? Every single weekend, except for two,  from the beginning of June to the middle of September. The cat is even done with us being gone as you can see above. She sees the suitcases come out and she tries to climb in. We are not supposed to forget…

Cheesy Potato and Ham Casserole (No Canned Soups)


It is almost back to school time when we will be making more casseroles and slow cooker dinners. Still I wanted a comforting cheesy casserole last night. I think the thought of all I had to do today was overwhelming me. I had a bag of frozen potatoes and a ham steak in the freezer…

Taco Spaghetti


Updated: 7-16-2017 I have been going back and revisiting some of the dishes my family loved that we have not had in quite awhile. This dish we had back in 2013 and when I made it again this weekend my family remembered how much they loved it! I have been hearing of Spaghetti Tacos for…

Ham and Cheese Quiche


  Tonight’s dinner was a recipe from my trusty old Joy of Cooking cookbook.  This is how I adapted my recipe.  It is more custard like than Quiche like.  No one waited for it to cool before cutting in! This slice was falling apart as it was too warm when we took it out of…

Farmers Casserole


Trying to keep these long days free and avoiding the kitchen as much as possible? This casserole is great! You can make it in the morning (or the night before if you want to cook it for breakfast). Let it rest while you are at work and pop it in the oven 55 minutes before…

Old Fashioned Chicken and Rice Casserole


If you grew up any time during the 1960s, 70s or even 80s you probably had some version of this dish for dinner at one time or another. The soups may have varied and the toppings may have varied but it was a standard meal in many homes. We were talking about this dish the…
