Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak This is a classic southern meal.  You can see that I have mashed taters and gravy on that plate too.  I will put up the recipe for those in the next day or two. When I do, I’ll come back and link them up here. Mashed taters and gravy just go with chicken fried steak. Chicken Fried Steak Gravy Chicken fried steak is so much easier to

Personal Pizzas #pizza #dinner #lunch

PERSONAL PIZZAS   This is a quickie how to/idea for lunch or dinner.  Let everyone make their own pizza, or make their pizza the way they want.  Everyone wins here.  Very quick and easy and if you have kids, they will love to pile on their own toppings.  My 18 year old loved it so much, she wanted to do mine as well.  Whatever, right. All you need is: -Refrigerated

Bacon, Onion & Cheese Stuffed Burgers You can pretty much stuff anything inside two patties and call it a stuffed burger. For this recipe, I used american cheese, crumbled up bacon and some onions.  As I was making this, I realized I used a LOT of burger.  I made my patties about the same size I normally do for burgers, then stuffed it. What I got was a massived double

Pork Turkey Meatballs

PORK TURKEY MEATBALLS Meatballs can make up or compliment so many meals.  Spaghetti, Goulash, Pasta, alone or many other dishes. These can make a great appetizer or finger food at get togethers. I will use these in spaghetti (sometimes), but really love to heat up some brown gravy and have meatballs and brown gravy over rice. Just thinking of it makes me want to go heat these up.  They also


Philly Cheesesteak Roll A new take on the classic Philly Cheesesteak. This turned out really good.  Everyone being served loved it, from kids to adults. And get this, the kids ranged from 1 up to 10 years old. We made two of these, one with onions (for adults) and one without (for children). I added the onions with the meat in the skillet and cooked it together.  The only problem

Popcorn Chicken Wrap

  Popcorn Chicken Wrap   Here’s a quick and easy meal/snack, whatever you want to call it.  Have you ever had a chicken wrap at Mcdonalds?  This is pretty similar, except the chicken pieces are smaller.  So when you take a bite of this one, you don’t have to fight that big piece of chicken that you don’t end up biting through and then you’re left with a flat wrap.

Southern Salisbury Steak

Southern Salisbury Steak This is some good stuff folks!!  I love salisbury steaks (the kind you buy frozen). Have you ever had them?  God only knows what’s in those things.  And while I can’t replicate the texture as good, I have come across some recipes and altered them some to end up with this masterpiece.  Ok, maybe it’s not a masterpiece.  But, it’s pretty flippin good!   I have combined

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce   Simple, yet scrumdillicious. That’s my made-up word for this sauce.  I had to come up with a basic sauce when I was cooking for my kids.  This one didn’t like onions, that one didn’t like olives or bell peppers, I’m not fond of mushrooms. Best thing to do is make a basic sauce and let anyone add something if they wanted to. Why use Prego or


MY MEATLOAF I have tummy issues that keep me from eating many things, tomatoes being one. I know, sad right.  So, I had to come up with a meatloaf that I could eat and like.  This is not your traditional meatloaf with ketchup.  This is MY MEATLOAF. It’s easy to just eliminate the ketchup on top, but it leaves the meatloaf kinda dry, don’t you think. I decided to use

Bacon Ranch Chicken

Bacon Ranch Chicken   Here is a great idea for your next family meal.  This doesn’t take long to prepare (other than marinating), but that’s easy to start. Then just take the marinated chicken out of the fridge and wrap the bacon and toss in the oven.  Pretty easy if you’re asking. Feeds up to 6 (possibly 8 if you have kids).  Serve with a veggie & pasta of your
