Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch Roll-Ups


A friend of mine used to have a New Year’s Eve party every year. He would serve something similar to this (frozen and from a box) and would call them “Ritzy Roll-Ups.” We used to laugh every year when he would set them on the table because they were delicious but the name was hysterical….

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….

Garlic Butter Italian Sausage Sandwiches


We buy most of our meat in bulk and on sale so I have to be creative in my dishes. We eat quite a bit of chicken breasts, chicken thighs and drumsticks, pork chops, and ground beef because they tend to be the meats that are on sale most often and are generally cheaper. Once…

Turkey, Cheddar Cheese, and Apple Grilled Cheese


Do you know how to make one of the perfect comfort foods? Surprisingly most people get it all wrong. Low and slow is the way to cook it. It will get that golden, crispy, crunchy outside while having beautifully melted cheese inside. You have to be patient and not turn up the heat no matter…

Breakfast Sliders


My family loves breakfast for dinner every once in a while. I like breakfasts for dinner because they tend to be super easy and everyone loves it! These sliders are a take off on several other sliders I have made including Meatball sliders, Reuben sliders (one of my most popular recipes to date), and of…

Lasagna Bread – Revisiting an Old Favorite


This was one of my first recipes posted and one of my families favorites. Quick, easy meals are always tops on my list. This meal can be put together and baked in about 30 minutes. Just enough time to have the kids help you put together a salad and vegetable while the bread is baking!…

Italian Sub Pizza


In a blog post earlier this year I wrote about how I get inspiration for dinners. One thing I said was I try to take something we like and turn it into something new. Make a favorite casserole into a sandwich, a sandwich into a pizza or a soup into a casserole. This is one…

Giant Italian Sandwich – For Home or To Go


I haven’t talked much about our To-Go meals this year. We are coming back into the time when we will be having more of our meals on the go. This past Friday we were headed Lansing for the Michigan State Science Olympiad so I decided it was time to pull out one of our favorite…

Black Bean Burgers with Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Aioli


Isn’t that a beautiful sight? I drove down by the beach while I was out running errands and the winter snow fencing is down. Here that is a sure sign summer is coming! Already the nights are getting longer – because we live so close to the Central Time Zone but are still in the…

White Barbecue Chicken Sandwich


All this traveling has really thrown me off my menu planning. I had to sit down last night with my calendar and a grocery list. We went through the pantry in the basement to see where we were with our groceries. We have been trying to eat as much as possible out of the pantry…
