Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

on November 9th, 2010 in Beef, Favorites, Main dish by | No Comments

One of the worlds greatest wonders….the crock pot! Seriously though, how nice is it to just toss a few things in the crock in the morning, leave, come back, and your house smells simply marvelous. Better yet, dinner is served. I use steaks that have been grilled to medium rare…

Ham, Artichoke, and Potato Gratin

on November 9th, 2010 in Main dish, pork by | No Comments

This is another great make ahead dish. I usually assemble it while my babes are sleeping. It’s so much easier to make a meal when you don’t have someone pulling on your leg, asking you to hold them, wanting to help you cook, or begging of any kind. Then, when…

Creamy Poppyseed Chicken

on November 4th, 2010 in chicken, Main dish by | No Comments

MMMMM……this is such a great make ahead dish. Sometimes i make it ahead of time, like when the kids are napping than just pop it in the oven at dinner. This is also a great meal if you’re taking someone dinner. We are in love with caramelized onions in this…

Meat Lasagna

on November 4th, 2010 in Beef, Favorites, Main dish, pork, Turkey by | No Comments

One of the ultimate comfort foods for my family. Of course it has to be meat rather than veggie, right? Otherwise, what would be comfort about it? I like to use ground meat loaf mix (veal, beef, and pork. You can find this at the meat counter) along with Italian…

Not your same o Broccoli

on October 20th, 2010 in Side dish, Vegetables by | No Comments

Broccoli…..i always wonder what to do with you. I get tired of the same o same o broccoli side dishes. This dish reminds of a broccoli salad minus the mayo, and it’s not cold. If i plan on feeding it to the kids i don’t add the chili flakes as…

on October 14th, 2010 in Favorites, Main dish, Soup, Vegetables by | No Comments

You will kick yourself if you don’t double this recipe. As you all know soups are better the next day, and this one is no exception. My family requests this soup often and a certain friend, that will remain nameless, but you know who you are…. In our house we…

There is something so wonderful about tossing ingredients in slow cooker, and coming home to a house that smells divine and dinner is just about served. This is a wonderful use for left over ham over the Holidays. This recipe has been a hit in our house and with our…

Sweet Corn and Chicken Soup

on October 10th, 2010 in chicken, Main dish, Soup by | No Comments

I was just getting over a sore throat and cold and wanted something with flavor, but broth based rather than cream. I was also in the mood for Chinese egg drop soup. Something with some soy sauce, fresh ginger, and garlic. What a perfect soup. It’s the perfect mix of…

Spicy Sausage, Pepper, and Onions Sandwich

on October 10th, 2010 in Main dish, Sandwiches, Turkey by | No Comments

In an effort to come up with some “warm winter” sandwiches this seemed fitting. The Marsala wine gives the peppers and onions a rich bold flavor. If you are feeding this to the kiddo’s you can leave out the chili pepper flakes. Adding them does give it a good amount…

Chicken Fried Rice

on September 23rd, 2010 in chicken, Main dish, Side dish by | No Comments

I like to serve this with a big bowl of hot and sour soup. Great use of left over veggies that you may have in your fridge, and you can use pork, shrimp, tofu, etc… instead of the chicken. Serves 7 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil 1 onion; chopped 1 1/2…
