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…

Cheesy Pizza Dip with Pepperoni


We were looking for a fun meal. On some nights during the summer we do movie nights, game nights or just let’s play nights where we go to a movie downtown near the fountain. This was one of those nights. We wanted something that was quick but reflective of the type of day we were…

Easy Creamy Taco Pasta


I keep waiting for the hot July weather. It has been warmer but not the high 80s and 90s I am used to. We are getting ready for a busy month ahead so I am trying to keep our grocery bill down by using smaller amounts of meat and more pasta, beans, and rice in…

Veggie Pizza Appetizer


Between now and Super Bowl Sunday I am planning on making and tasting quite a few appetizers.  For us New Year’s Eve and Super Bowl Sunday are all about the food.  Oh, and isn’t there a ball dropping and a game we are supposed to be paying attention to?  But, for us we start weeks…

Chicken with Parmesan Sauce


This is not a good picture of this meal.  My camera batteries were running low and the flash was not working.  But, I did the best I could so you could get an idea of the dish. Last night was a dance night for us.  That means dinner need to be on the table shortly…

Ham Tetrazzini


Last night was amazing because we were home for an entire evening.  I mean we did have to go out and deliver our daughter to the Murder Mystery Night at the local library and pick her up.  Stop and get gas for the van and have a few minutes to chat with friends waiting for…

Easy Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls


Unfrosted Cinnamon Roll I don’t bake.  I love to cook but baking is too exacting for me.   You have to be precise in your measurements or it doesn’t rise or completely crumbles. For my daughter’s slumber party I wanted to make a special breakfast so I found the EASIEST Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls I could find…

Mexican Casserole – Cinco de Mayo


We spent the last weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at two Irish Dance Feis.  We had been once before but only for one night.  This time we spent two nights and had a bit of time to explore.  We ended up at a German Beer Haus that was wonderful.  Long family style tables with great beer…

Ham & Cheese Egg Bake


I had a little piece of ham sitting in the freezer that I needed to get out of my freezer.  I searched Pinterest but couldn’t find just what I wanted.  I did not want bread or potatoes in the dish.  All I wanted was something simple that did not have to set for hours before…

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff


We are still in full comfort food mode so for dinner last night I started with a recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff from Allrecipes.com. I knew I would have to a bit of changing to the recipe for my family.   The first change I made was substituting chicken stock for butter.  I didn’t want…

One Skillet Tortellini & Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce


Our family had a Snow Day yesterday.  It was wonderful.  We all needed that day to kind of put ourselves back together.   Things have been so busy that everything was just a bit off and the forced down time let us put everything back in order.  Now, if we could only find my son’s winter…
