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.

Sloppy Joes

What is it about this meal that everyone loves? I think my kids love it because they can make a mess while eating it. I love this recipe because I can sneak veggies in and they never know! This recipe is so much healthier than the kind you find in a can.

Just blend up the frozen veggies or chop them really fine before adding to the meat. I also like to make a couple of batches of this to put in the freezer for an easy mess. Continue reading “Sloppy Joes”

Mrs. B’s Good Easy Pizza

This is a recipe I’ve had since my high school home economics class. It was always a hit with my younger brothers and sisters as pizza was a rare treat for us when we were growing up and being able to make it at home was a blessing!

Homemade pizzas are always so much fun because everyone can make their pizza the way they like it… yay! If you don’t care for the tomato sauce you could probably give this a try with some Easy Alfredo Sauce.

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!

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!

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.)

Even the dog was staring me down because she was ready for dinner…

Grandma’s Mac N Cheese

Now I do confess that most times I use the boxed macaroni and cheese because:

  1. it’s cheap
  2. it’s easy
  3. I’m too tired to make the real deal

However, I do try to make this recipe every so often and on special occasions and/or holidays. You can add a little ham or meat to make this a hearty main dish! Continue reading “Grandma’s Mac N Cheese”
