Spicy Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry

Talk about fabulous! I never knew stir-fry could be this easy.  For some reason, I’ve always been hesitant to try and make a stir-fry.  I’m not sure why, but the concept was always intimating, but I finally tried it with this recipe from the Pampered Chef and it was amazing.  It only took me 30 […]

Mini Cheeseburgers (aka Sliders)

A friend had made these recently for a party and she said they were a huge success, so I thought they would be great for Ian’s 2nd birthday party. They’ll be the perfect size for his little hands and the adults can enjoy them as well.  However, since I haven’t made them before, I tried […]

Mexican Chicken Lasagna

One of the new items I’ve recently gotten for my kit was the Deep Covered Baker. With it, I can make meals in both the oven and the microwave and I wanted to see how it would work. The first recipe I tried was this Mexican Chicken Lasagna and I have to say that it […]

Country-Fried “Steaks” with Chipotle Gravy

I’ve been looking for something more to do with hamburger and I think I’ve found it.  Supposedly, this recipe only takes about 28 minutes (it’s from the Pampered Chef 29 Minutes to Dinner Vol. 2), but it did take me a little longer to do.  Granted, a lot of that had to do with me […]

Hearty Lasagna

This is a great simple recipe for lasagna. It is quick and delicious. By using the sausage instead of the traditional hamburger certainly added great spice to it! A few changes I made was that I added a little bit more of the 5-cheese blend in each layer. Also, I used whole milk ricotta cheese […]

Red-Wine Flank Steak

This is *very* good. The hubby and I love this recipe, however, we generally only make it for special occasions due to the price of flank steak. However, the red-wine sauce gives the steak a simply delicious flavor. Ingredients 1 Beef Flank Steak (about 1 pound) 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 2 teaspoons olive […]

Pot Roast with Twisted Potatoes

Pot roast is such an easy meal to make since it requires little effort to get it going and it cooks all day. The only problem we run into is what to do with all the veggies that are placed in the slow cooker to help flavor the beef. Usually, I serve them as a […]

Cheeseburger Pie

This recipe originally came from Betty Crocker, but it is so easy to make, that you can easily make it your own. I know I did.  One of the things I added was green peppers.  For some reason, I love cooking with green peppers lately.  They just add a flavor that seems to always work.   […]
