Spare Rib Casserole


I hate wasting food so I try to use up as many leftovers as possible. Often they are used for lunch the next day but I had other plans for the spare ribs. I love the combination of barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, and smashed potatoes. I knew I wanted to make this casserole for dinner….

The End of No Buy January: Brown Bean Casserole


So it is the end of No Buy January. My freezer, pantry and refrigerator are ready to be cleaned. There are a few stray items left and now it is time to decide what to throw away or move to the front and use. This last day was particularly tough for me. I had a…

Kotopoulo Lemonato


The kids and I are insanely jealous because my wife is in Orlando, Florida at a conference. It wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t get to go to Epcot the other day and were not staying right next to Walt Disney World, our favorite vacation spot.  She was at Epcot for the last day…

Buffalo Chicken French Fry Casserole


My son likes spicy dishes. We all love Buffalo chicken, but in varying versions of heat. One of the nice things about this dish is that you can vary the hotness of the dish. We generally go for a mid-range medium but my son can then spice his dish up with one of the variety…

Unstuffed Pepper Casserole – Making Two Meals at Once


So, yesterday I said I cooked all the meat for two dinners. I took one half of the ground beef and Italian sausage mixture and I used it to make Pizza Sloppy Joes (click for link to recipe).  While that was cooking that meal I made an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole. It was great because when we…

Pierogi and Sausage Casserole


I first made this casserole over 2 years ago. I have reworked the original recipe into a one pan casserole that can be on the table in about 30 minutes! This meal was one of those, “Oh my goodness it is 30 minutes before dinner and I don’t know what we are going to eat…

Philly Cheesesteak Pasta Bake


Our local OutCenter flag draped with a black ribbon says it all. The 90 degree days are gone for a while so we are back in comfort food mode again. With temperatures hovering in the low 60s and just a general sadness that seems to be in the air from the events of this past…

Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole (No Canned Soup Recipe)


Last night was definitely a comfort food night. Even though summer is just a few weeks away the temperatures have dropped just a bit and there was a slight breeze. It was still nice out but it almost had a fall feel to the day. This was the first night we were all home together…

Italian Sausage Cowboy Casserole


We spent the weekend in Lansing, Michigan, for the Michigan State Science Olympiad Tournament. My son has participated on his middle school team the last two years. This has been a great thing for him. It was his birthday Friday so we had cake an ice cream in the hotel lobby for him with the…

Cowboy Meatloaf with Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole


I am contemplating buying my first glue gun. I have never been really big into crafts. Oh, I have all the different things I bought to try new crafty projects such as knitting, scrap booking and jewelry making. But, I never actually purchased a glue gun. To me that was for the people who wore…
