Simple Taco Fries


It snowed this weekend. Yes, snowed. This calls for serious comfort food. It was 50 one day then snow. So, we are making all kinds of comfort food to get ourselves through the giant snowflakes were falling. I asked my daughter to go down to the freezer and bring up ground beef and french fries….

French Fry Breakfast Casserole


This is to use up the few last remaining pieces from our basket for No Buy January! Remember I said at the end of the month if I had anything left in my freezer I put it in a basket and had to use it by the end of next week. So, the zesty curly…

Football Food – Buffalo Chicken Fries


This is the second part of a cook once, eat twice post. The other day I made sandwiches for dinner. While I was cooking the chicken for the sandwiches I cooked some extra chicken breasts to make this dish for snacking while watching our favorite football game. Buffalo chicken is one thing my family loves…

Simple Comfort Food – Easy Poutine


Some days you just want comfort food. Poutine (click for link to original recipe) is comfort food. French fries drenched with gravy and melty cheese curds. If you make it the correct way you cut the potatoes, fry them up, make your gravy and then when the gravy is hot pour it over the warm…

Peruvian Steak and Potato Stir-Fry – Loma Saltado


One last dinner from our archives. Tomorrow I will be back with daily dinner posts. Catching up from vacation is tough! Have a great day friends and enjoy Fat Tuesday! For us to eat steak for dinner is a rare occurrence. I try to keep dinners rather inexpensive.  My kids say cheap but I prefer…

Beer Battered Fish and Chips


My kids love having food from different countries. When I first mentioned making Fish and Chips the first thing they asked me to do was to get Malt Vinegar for the chips (fries). To make this dish a bit healthier, and I mean just a little bit, I made oven fries rather than deep-frying them…

The Best Oven Baked French Fries with Balsamic French Fry Dip


With time tight I decided to try these Al Fresco Grillers that I bought a few weeks ago. I thought with all the busy nights we would be having with dance classes and after school activities that these would be something to try for a quick, easy dinner that I didn’t have to think about….

Pulled Pork over Cheesy Fries


After two months my son has decided he likes being a vegetarian but he is not going to be as strict about it he has been. He wants to continue to avoid meat but will eat meat if that is what I serve. I am going to try to cook vegetarian or pescatarian most days…

Faux Vegetarian “Big Macs” with Homemade French Fries


We eat at fast food restaurants about 8-10 times a year. Mostly we stop when we are traveling and need something quick while we are driving. Rarely do we stop at one to just have dinner. One of the things that my partner likes is a Big Mac from McDonald’s. Every time she eats one…

Poutine


Poutine is one of those foods that either you know what it is or you don’t and you either love it or you think it is just weird. Looking at all the pieces separately each piece is good. Fresh cheese curd that is so fresh it still squeaks as you chew? Deliciously salty and full…

Back to Reality and Hamburgers with Gravy


Spring Break is over.  Sigh.  It always takes a few days for us to get back into the routine of school, classes and work.  It seems so easy to get out of the routine but so hard to restart it.  Even knowing that the first day back will be rough the actual reality always seems…

Mexican Irish Nachos


Friday was insane so I did not get to a post about Thursday night’s dinner.  My teenage daughter had a #DisneySide @homecelebration.  It was lots of fun.  The girls had a half-day of school so I picked them up and brought them to the house for a luncheon. They were so cute!  They would all…
