Creole Spaghetti

This is another recipe that I’ve had since high school… it has always been a big winner in our home. I’ve come a long ways since Home Ec class and I rarely measure anything anymore but it’s a good thing I’m putting these recipes online as this one is getting so worn that the ink is smudging badly. I also like using a little bit of minced garlic in mine as well. You might also like this recipe: Mama’s Secret Spaghetti Sauce.

Easy Pepperoni & Pasta Casserole

This recipe is so easy but I forgot that I even had it! The original recipe calls for Rotell past (little wheels) but you can use just about any pasta that you might have on hand.

Ultimate Mashed Potatoes

We love Mashed Potatoes but every now and then I make these potatoes which are just a little bit extra special and delicious! I love how leaving the skins on makes these so pretty and it provides a little bit of the unexpected. Continue reading “Ultimate Mashed Potatoes”

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Casserole

I made this earlier this week when my daughter and son-in-law came to visit before leaving… sniff, sniff... I miss them so much already! It was really delicious with some Quick & Easy Garlic Bread.He actually really loved it and requested the recipe so I thought I’d go ahead and share it with everyone!

This recipe is fairly simple to make and you can actually make it a couple of ways… you can use Easy Alfredo Sauce in the place of the ‘sauce’ for this recipe. You can also add in more or less chicken and/or throw some cooked bacon and/or sauteed mushrooms in there too! This meal works great as a freezer meal as well!

Party Cheese Ball

This is the cheese ball recipe that I’ve been looking for… thankfully my Holiday Binder was still in the house and not packed away in the shed. My Holiday Binder has folders for every major holiday and party that we have celebrated and the recipes that we use for those events… such a timesaver! Kids can help with this too!

This can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer for up to a month. Just wrap the cheese ball tightly in plastic, before covering with nuts, and place in the freezer. Allow it to thaw completely in the fridge before covering with nuts and serving.

Roasted Turkey w/ Giblet Gravy

This is probably one of the most searched for recipes around the holidays! This is one that I’ve had forever and it has saved me quite a few times before I had my friend Google.

Making your first turkey dinner can be quite intimidating but you can follow these simple directions for a perfect roasted turkey. Stuffed turkeys generally need to cook at 325 for about 20 minutes/pound while unstuffed turkeys are about 15 minutes/pound but always check the temperature with a meat thermometer!

Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

The other day I made a quick errand run to Sam’s Club to pickup up a few essentials and grab something for my sister-in-law to be. The kids and I then met up with her and exchanged her items and I got a camera that my brother no longer needed… yippee! Y’all know I have been talking about getting a new camera… new-to-me is new enough!

This actually happens to be the same camera that was used at my daughter’s wedding so I know how well it works and I’m excited to play with it and start taking some awesome photos!

By the time I got home, I was so ready for a nap and EVERYONE was starving. I decided to make a quick sheet pan dinner with some Super Yummy Caulitaters. This meal was so simple!

This particular day I also made a simple cheese sauce to go with it as Mr. Awesome can’t have broccoli without the cheese.

I should have doubled the recipe as EVERYONE DEVOURED it.

Momma’s Green Bean Casserole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I wouldn’t have realized it if my oldest daughter hadn’t asked for the recipe. I figured I might as well share it with everyone because things are getting a little hectic around here as we have packed up a few things as we prepare for our new home and who knows where this recipe might end up?

One of my fondest memories from when I was little was sitting on the back porch with my Mom-mom helping her with the beans and other goodies she had harvested from her garden.

As I got older I did this with my kids as well. I can still remember when we had a Doberman, named Mac, who loved green beans. The little stinker would run right up to the washtub and steal the beans every chance he got! Continue reading “Momma’s Green Bean Casserole”

Steak Paprika Over Egg Noodles

Ohhhhhh… sometimes I hate our internet… I had already written this cute little post with pictures and everything only to have our internet glitch and lose EVERYTHING!

So here we go again…

Today was a bit extremely hectic and I really didn’t feel like cooking want to cook but the little humans who had been EXTREMELY loud and crazy today were really getting on my nerves and Mr. Awesome had only asked me a few times what we were having for dinner so I figured that I should probably go ahead and get dinner started.

(Those freezer meals I put together the other day were really tempting me but Mr. Awesome had already seen ‘steak’ on the menu so freezer meals were ruled out.)

You can prep a lot of these ahead of time to make these super easy to throw together. These also work great for any meal or as a quick snack when you need a little boost. Continue reading “Chicken Bacon Avocado Wraps”
