French Fry Breakfast Casserole


This is to use up the few last remaining pieces from our basket for No Buy January! Remember I said at the end of the month if I had anything left in my freezer I put it in a basket and had to use it by the end of next week. So, the zesty curly…

My Top 5 Recipes for January 2018


Every last Saturday of the month I gather my top 3-5 recipes from the month. Sometimes they are older recipes that people have come back to look for or new ones that I have made during the month. This month definitely had a comfort food feel about it and my top recipes are definite comfort…

Ham and Cheese Hashbrown Casserole


It is not often I use canned cream of anything soups. Then tend to look and smell funny to my children so I usually make my own cream sauce from butter, flour, and cream or half and half. But, we were cleaning the pantry up and I had two cans of cream of potato soup…

Million Dollar Spaghetti


This recipe has been all over Pinterest and Facebook for years. I have always resisted trying it or making a twist on it because it is so popular. I am an old-fashioned, easy, home cook. I am not about the popular. Although, I have wanted an Insta Pot to try but we are not quite…

Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole


My daughter had her friends over the other night for their annual Christmas sleepover. They have done this the past five years. It has changed some in size but the one thing they always have is laughter. We loved listening to them laugh and giggle. A friend recently wrote about how that last time you…

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…
