Baked Pasta

I was in the mood for Macaroni Grill, but didn’t want to hassle with loading us all up and going there. So….I made our own version here at home. I always have colored peppers in the fridge and not only does it give this dish great flavor, but it adds…

Cottage Pie

Hands down, best cottage pie I’ve ever had. It does take a little more time than others, but man it’s worth it. To cut on the time, i made the filling the night before (since it needs to simmer for sometime) and popped it in the fridge. Then, when i…

Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

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

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…

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…
