I've been trying to perfect the perfect lasagna, for my tastes at least. It's been a long road, and I've played with it and tweaked it quite a bit and now, I love it,all my friends seem to wolf it up. I made the instructions non cook friendly and simple. It's good when it's done, it's better after it's been in the fridge the next day.
My kids just love this casserole and when they come home I have to promise to fix it for them.
A Southern dish that has been sharing the supper table for years. This rice dish will have you coming back for more. Here in the Northwest people ask me all the time "What is Jambalaya?" I reply saying it is seasoned rice with your favorite type of meat.
A delicious and hearty soup with sausage, beans, and vegetables that is thick enough to make a meal! I serve this with a side of Italian bread with butter or extra virgin olive oil, oregano, toasted garlic, and basil to taste.
This is a classic my mother taught me when I was young and she had to work. It's a hearty way to end a cold winter's day. Just throw everything in a sauce pan on low or into a crock pot and let it cook all day. This is a family sized recipe, cut it in half if you are cooking for two.
This is my updated and simplified version of my Grandma's chickpeas that were always comforting. A rustic dish that is specially good in winter and very easy to make. Serve along with a good rustic bread, olives, cheese and a good Spanish wine.
Growing up, this was the one dish we always looked forward to. We only had it twice a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Before Grandma passed away, she gave us the recipe. Enjoy.
This recipe makes a wonderful chili sauce for hot dogs. Just place a grilled hot dog in a bun, and top with chili, grated Cheddar cheese and diced onions. Serve immediately.
Hot Dogs, everybody's favorite, turned in to a quick, tasty meal.
A good friend of ours brought this soup to us shortly after the birth of our first child. It's very hearty, simple to make, and has a wonderful flavor. An alternate method to prepare this soup is to mix all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours.
This is a quick and easy appetizer that I received from a friend and tweaked to make it my own... I use a combination of hot and sweet bulk Italian sausage, which is easy to find in Upstate New York, where I live. If you cannot find bulk Italian sausage, buy links, remove the casings and squeeze out the sausage to cook. Don't be thrown off by the strange ingredient combination, these taste wonderful and your guests will be shocked when you share the recipe!
This is a wonderful one-pan meal that you can add to in many ways. You can substitute refried beans for the meat to make it for vegetarians. You can use any type of cheese, meat, or peppers you want. That is what makes this a excellent meal. It's great the next day reheated. Serve on bed of lettuce and top with sour cream and picante sauce.
This recipe is a great Valentine's Day either side dish or meal and very easy to make, everyone loves it!
My grandma’s chili. You can make this as thick or soupy as you like. It’s awesome either way. This makes quite a lot and it freezes well. So have your Tupperware ready.
Wanted some thing quick and easy. Have never had this before so I made up this recipe as I went. Serve with toasted garlic Texas Toast, Green salad and fresh grated Parmesan Cheese sprinkled on top of the noodle mixture.
This is a very hearty sauce with two types of meat and fresh vegetables. It was passed from my father to me and with his blessings I want to pass it to everyone in his honor. Thanks Dad! Serve over your favorite pasta. And don't forget the garlic bread!!!
Do you need to make sausage and peppers for a bunch of people? This sausage and peppers recipe allows you to make lots of this favorite food in an easy fashion. You can serve it as a side dish or on a bun.
An intensely spicy pizza with the distinct flavor of tacos... Without that overrated taco seasoning!
An excellent stuffing of rice and Italian sausage in colorful sweet peppers. Use bell peppers that weigh about 6 ounces.
A lighter version of a true Texas-style chili.
