Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti


I tasted this right after I made it and noticed that the heat increased a little after it had been sitting in the refrigerator for a few hours. So if you are making this ahead of time, you might want to keep that in mind. Have you heard of the E-Cookbooks library? It has over … Read more

Creamed Spinach


While not entirely traditional, we all thought this version of creamed spinach was delicious, even those of us (namely, our 9 year old) who do not like spinach. I played around with and adjusted things as I went, so the measurements might not be entirely accurate. They should be pretty close though. Visit The Grocery … Read more



I know these sandwiches are a little different in method from traditional Stromboli, but this is my lazy way of choice to make them for nights when I need a quicker meal. These sandwiches are delicious and so quick to throw together, especially if the fillings are prepped ahead of time. We like these for … Read more

Fudgy Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Bars

My oldest loves to go to her grandparents’ house and indulge in cans of Campbell’s Chunky Sirloin Burger soup. I don’t blame her. As I was growing up, I spent many Sunday afternoons splitting a can of it with my dad. I never thought I’d be able to recreate that flavor. I was wrong! This … Read more

These sandwiches are so good. Everything can be prepared ahead of time and left in the refrigerator. At dinner time all that’s left is to assemble the sandwiches and warm them in the microwave or oven. You can prepare them as a stand alone meal or from leftover chicken. Talk about turning leftovers into a … Read more

Sweet & Sour Ham


My husband loves Sweet & Sour Chicken. In fact, it is the only thing he ever orders when we (rarely) order Chinese food. He also loves ham. A LOT! I think he would eat ham every single day, for every single meal if he could. So I thought…why not combine the two? Thus, sweet & … Read more

Taco Meatloaf Patties with Mexican Mac & Cheese


We love Mexican foods of all kinds in our home. My kids always request spicy (or “fiecy, depending on who’s asking) foods. However, as the controller of the kitchen, I sometimes get bored with the stand-bys of tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. So this is a fun dish to mix things up a little bit. Everything … Read more
