Ham and Cheese Stromboli


They had full boneless hams on sale recently for $.99 a lb! That is a super price here. So, I bought one and cut it into pieces before freezing so that we could use if for different dishes – baked ham, soups, casseroles, etc…. We took out one of the smaller pieces for dinner the…

Hamburger Stroganoff Pizza


Halloween came very early to our house this year. I needed to have both kids ready for Halloween about a week early. My son had a Halloween concert at the end of the week. He was Buddy, the elf, from the movie Elf. Then my daughter had a Halloween Feis (rhymes with mesh, and Irish…

Flavorful Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich


So, as we close in on the end of the month I am trying really hard to buy as little extra as possible. I had all the ingredients in my refrigerator except the loaf of bread which was on sale this week! Yes! I could have baked a loaf but I was trying to make…

Grilled Reuben


One of the ways we have been battling with what to have for dinner when our life is so busy is to cook a big cut of meat such as a corned beef, ham, even a turkey and then slicing them up for different meals. This cuts down on the time needed to cook a…

Thanksgiving Sliders


I still had a whole turkey in the freezer and knew time was going to be tight this week. We roasted the turkey and split it up into portions to use and freeze. It has really helped make dinners (and lunches) a bit easier. Both of my kids thankfully love turkey sandwiches and happily will…

Reuben Roll Ups


Happy First Day of Spring! Let’s hope the temperature tops 40 degrees today! Leftover Corned Beef is almost unheard of in my house but sometimes I make an extra large brisket just to have leftovers. Reubens are always a great way to use the leftover Corned Beef. This is a twist on those Reubens. Cut…

Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich Sliders (on Hawaiian Rolls)


More of these little sandwiches. They are so versatile you can fill them with almost anything you can think of to get tons of different meals or hearty appetizers for a party. These can also be made with cold chicken salad but with the cold weather it seemed much nicer to me to have a…

Italian Sandwich Sliders (on Hawaiian Rolls)


I am going to be posting lots of foods you can use for football parties or for a hearty appetizer dinner. As I have said before my family loves these little Hawaiian rolls sandwiches, if you don’t like the sweetness of the rolls you can always substitute a nice package of heat and serve dinner…

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…
