Sometimes my family just wants plain old cheese burgers. I understand. They look at me and ask for no baby greens, diced jalapeno, cream sauces, or other weird ingredients on top.

Ground Beef Packet Dinners in the Slow Cooker


If you have ever been camping you have probably had one of these or something similar for dinner. You can make them with chicken, pork chops, fish, etc… and the vegetables of your choice. I don’t know why I never thought of making them in the slow cooker before. These would be great on a…

Johnny Appleseed Burgers


The meat items that have been on sale around us recently have been chicken thighs and drumsticks for about $.77 a pound and ground beef for $1.99 a pound. For our area those REALLY good prices. You will notice quite a few of my recipes have had one or the other items in them lately….

Black Bean and Corn Quinoa Burgers


I write my menu plan about a month at a time. This is becoming a bit difficult for me with the change in food choices. I am truly trying to stretch myself in cooking and eating but I have already purchased a bunch of chicken and sausage so I am going to try to figure…

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Cheeseburgers


First full week of summer vacation begins and I am tired!  I thought this was going to get easier.  In a few weeks it will.   My son asked why all our appointments are in the two weeks after school is out.   He is right.  I have been holding off as much as possible until school…

Bruschetta Burgers


This was another night where dinner needed to be on the table rather quickly and all I had in the refrigerator for meat was thawed ground beef.  My children know I do not make plain old hamburgers so I had to think quickly. I found one tomato, some mozzarella, spices and left over mini sub…
