Breakfast Sandwiches

I have been so out of it that I totally forgot last night was Cinco de Mayo. I usually plan for weeks ahead of time what we are going to have but this one just crept up on me. I did marinate some steak for tortillas but that didn’t quite make it. So, breakfast sandwiches…

Potato Beer Cheese Slow Cooker Soup

I love soup! No secret there. The rest of my family is pretty meh on the whole idea of soup for dinner but this soup had so much flavor that they were calling the leftovers for lunch the next day right after dinner. It helps that I added some extra potatoes and carrots to bulk…

Garlic Chicken Bites

We just got the final five week schedule for seniors from the school. It seems like there is at LEAST one thing each and every day for the next five weeks. It was a bit overwhelming as I put it into my calendar. I want to truly enjoy this time and was hitting a bit…

Top 5 Recipes on “What’s for Dinner Moms?” – April 2021

It’s interesting to see each month what are the top recipes each month. There is a brand new one that was the topped searched recipe on my log the “Jimmy Dean Crustless Quiche.” The other 4 were repeats from past months with a new order. The “Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Sauerkraut” is going on…

Loaded Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Verdict: My family really likes this dish. I generally make it with leftover chicken breasts from another meal or that I cook extra when I am making chicken breasts anyway. I just cube it up and save it for a dish just like this! The Ranch over the fries is one of our favorite parts….

Baked Apple Breakfast Casserole

Every Thursday is breakfast for dinner in our house. I love a flavorful breakfast casserole. It is hearty and and will keep me full the rest of the night. I forget to make these casseroles for dinner as they are supposed to rest over night and then you bake them for breakfast, right? Well, I…

Refrigerator Pasta

This sounds strange but it uses up our pieces of things before they go bad in the vegetable drawer. I always start with the same basic pasta recipe and then I try to remember to pull out the pepper, one carrot, spinach, etc… before it starts to go bad and put it on a shelf…

Barbecue Stuffing Meatloaf

Things are getting better. I have had gout since I was 18 years-old. I can go years without a flare up but I started on last Friday night. I thought 2-3 days as usual and I would be back to normal. Nope. Not this time. It started to move from my big toe across the…

The Summer of …

Last year was the Summer of Grilling for us. We grilled everything and anything we could. Ordinary chicken, steaks, and fish to the extraordinary turkey and whole ham. It was fun for us and made us really be creative in what we were having and we found we will only grill a turkey from now…

Salmon Pesto Pasta

So this picture isn’t pretty. My daughter referred to it as looking like weird cat food. It smelled amazing and tasted really good. I have strange issues around foods that I don’t think go together like pesto and salmon. I was hesitant to try it because I couldn’t think of the two strong flavors going…

Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

This is one of those recipes that is super for a last minute meal. When we were out shopping a few days before I made this I picked up a loaf of Italian style bakery bread (the big oval loaves) and left it out on the counter to dry for a day or two. I…
