Merlot Meatballs Perfect holiday appetizer. Don’t have a rice cooker to make these? Enter to win one! I simply love my rice cooker. It’s the one appliance that I wouldn’t ever part with because it does so much! It doesn’t only cook rice. In fact, rice is one of the last things I use this…
Creamy Chicken Pot Pie
Creamy Chicken Pot Pie You can’t get more “comfort” food than this. Great dish to use up leftovers–especially with the coming Holiday season. There aren’t too many people who don’t like chicken pot pie, and unlike the frozen, homemade tastes better and is pretty easy too! This is the perfect weeknight meal on cold late-fall…
Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Pot Pie
Biscuit & Sausage Gravy Pot Pie An old-time favorite in casserole form. Not unhealthy if made with reduced-fat ingredients. I have always loved this dish. However, as I aged, the fattiness tended to give me “agita” so I rarely ate it. I found a way to do it by using reduced-fat alternatives to the usual culprits….
Poppy Chicken Florentine
Poppy Chicken Florentine Combines two well-loved chicken casseroles–poppy seed chicken casserole and chicken florentine. This is definitely a marriage made in heaven. I’m mad for the taste of buttered Ritz cracker crumbs and have been since I discovered that broccoli cheese casserole. I discovered the famous poppy seed chicken casserole a couple of years later….
Mexicali Hashbrown Taco Casserole
Mexicali Hash Brown Taco Casserole Meat and potatoes in one dish. A different angle on Shepherd’s Pie.
Salsa-Licious Mac & Cheese: Meatless Mondays
Salsa-Licious Mac & Cheese So easy and so tasty. A different mac & cheese. Can be made totally meatless and a giveaway too! I have been thinking about doing something like this literally for years. My friend Kevin said his mom *always* added a bit of salsa to her mac & cheese and I thought…
Italian Sausage Bites
Italian Sausage Bites You will never believe something so simple is so delectable! I bought this absolutely GORGEOUS oregano plant recently at a local farm stand and was dying to find recipes to use fresh oregano besides the “usual suspects” such as spaghetti sauces and all. So I went searching on Google and found this…
Mushroom Asiago Chicken
Mushroom Asiago Chicken Gourmet meal that’s on your table in 30 minutes. This is the original recipe!
Savory Breakfast/Dinner Torta
Breakfast/Dinner Torta Here’s a great breakfast/dinner bake that is gluten free! Most of these “bakes” you see contain flour or Bisquick. OK I know they sell a gluten-free form of Bisquick now, but why bother? This is better!! And it’s also low carb. Unfortunately not low calorie. This pan is my Gastrolux 9.5-inch…
Cheeseburger Ring All the taste of those fast-food superburgers, but half the price! I think everyone is familiar with the famous taco ring that’s made with crescents. It’s time to think outside the taco ring! Not being a fan of taco flavoring, I do these with other fillings. I’ve done chicken and broccoli and pizza…
