Slow Cooker Korean Beef

I love getting the cheaper cuts of beef and slow cooking them to make them super tender. My family doesn’t miss the more expensive cuts for roasts if I cook them this way. For steaks you will want a more expensive cut such as sirloin, skirt, or flank. But, for this dish a bottom round…

Chicken Scallopini

Can we be honest here? I am struggling with dinners. I don’t want to make them. My standbys are even too difficult to think of making. I was chatting with a friend who told me she gave her kids bowls of cereal the other night and I thought it was perfect. We had popcorn the…

Slow Cooker Italian Beef – Chicago Style Sandwiches

We love to dip. Chips and dip. Bread to dip in olive oil. French fries to dip in sauces. It doesn’t matter. That is why we love this sandwich plus it has tons of flavor. It is simple to make the roast cooks in the slow cooker until you are ready to make the sandwiches….

Loaded Potato Skins

If you follow me at all you can probably tell that my mind is on football and appetizers. Yes, my Buffalo Bills lost the other day but it was a great run! Cannot be unhappy with how far they went this year. We are in an appetizer for dinner phase right now at our house….

Classic Beef Stroganoff

I have been making quite a few “classic” recipes lately. Comfort food and familiarity seems to be what my family is craving. I bought a few roasts that I cut into steaks. I decided to use them over a couple of days in different dishes so that I wouldn’t have to freeze them. I love…

Classic Style Meatballs

The other day I let my daughter decide which she wanted to do. Make dinner or clean. She chose dinner once she heard my suggestion of homemade meatballs. She hates mixing and cooking meat – I think she will be more vegetarian once she is on her own. But, she thought meatballs sounded really good….

Kielbasa with Sauerkraut

I love kielbasa. My family tends to be rather, meh, on having it for dinner. I can usually convince them once a month to have it if I pair it with cheesy eggs and potatoes or sauerkraut. I like having it with sauerkraut because that mean dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes!…

Simple Chicken Caesar Salad with Homemade Dressing

I am a huge proponent of meal planning and not having lots of food waste. I read the other day that on average Americans throw away 219 pounds per person in a year. That is money each of us are throwing away. There are people going hungry in the world and country and a family…

Southwest Eggrolls

We are continuing our appetizer recipes. These tasty eggrolls have a delicious slightly spicy taste. They are the thing my kids will seek out at parties and for meals if they see them. Anything wrapped in an eggroll wrapper and fried or baked some how seems more fun, doesn’t it? Verdict: These are so easy…

Garlic-Butter Steak Bites

Our grocery store had a great sale on beef in the past few weeks. I think because everyone was looking for turkeys and chickens they weren’t buying as much beef so it was on clearance. Makes me happy! I wanted us to have steak but each of my family can eat a pound of steak…

Courtney Thorn Smith’s Spicy Ground Beef – Revisisted

I was looking around for something to make with ground beef when I remembered this recipe – Courtney Thorn-Smith’s Spicy Ground Beef (click for link to original recipe), from several years ago. Courtney Thorne-Smith was an American actress best known for “Melrose Place” back in the 90s. It was a super simple recipe and I…

Simple Cheeseburger Sliders

As of Wednesday Michigan is moving back down a level in the Covid fight. They are suspending high school, eating in restaurants, no movies, bowling, and elementary schools are at the discretion of the district. If your job can be done from home you are to stay home. I was able to play bells on…
