Pull Apart Cheesy Bread by

Pull Apart Cheesy Bread Cheesy bread goes with so many meals, or is great by itself as well.  I made this to go with my Turkey Alfredo with Angel Hair Pasta.  And instead of slicing the bread into individual slices.  I just sliced it down far enough to be able to pull it apart and get some butter and cheese down in between each slice. I didn’t use garlic powder

Queso Blanco Rice by

Queso Blanco Rice You’ve had or heard of Queso Blanco cheese right?  If not, it’s a white cheddar type cheese.  Velveeta brand has some now.  Even some restaurants use it for their Queso Dip.  I like it. So much, that I put it in my Queso Blanco Rice here. It doesn’t take a scientist at this point to guess what I mixed with this rice, does it?  Yup…Queso Blanco cheese. 

Cheesy Green Beans by

Cheesy Green Beans Cheesy Green Beans is a simple way to change up your boring vegetable AND get your kid to eat them.  I used to do this when my kids were younger.  A couple of them hated eating green beans (still do), but if I loaded them with cheese, it was a whole nuther story. You could serve these with just about any meal. This is no fancy schmancy

Easy Mexican Rice by

Easy Mexican Rice This has got to be the easiest Mexican Rice you can make, and it’s not as spicy as the typical Mexican Rice. It’s very cheesy…just the way I like it! I have tummy issues and can’t eat spicy foods.  I used Velveeta Mexican cheese, it’s not as spicy, so I can eat this and it still tastes like regular Mexican Rice. The easy part is you use

Bacon Fries by

Bacon Fries Talk about easy peasy.  Here ya go!   This came about when my daughter saw a recipe floating around on Facebook.  She tagged me in it and asked if I would make them for her.  I never went to the recipe to see how it’s made, but it’s pretty obvious, don’t you think?  At least my way is easy.  If you would like to make this more homemade, make

Loaded French Fries by

Loaded French Fries Doesn’t this look yummy?  Let me tell you, they were soooo good.  I haven’t been into making full meals lately.  I’m trying to get myself to eat again.  Long story.  So, I decided to make these puppies.  Pretty much the same as a loaded baked potato, but with french fries.  Point is, you could eat this as a whole meal, as an appetizer or as a side

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad by

This pasta was one of the items she sent me.  She loads a box full of Breast Cancer stuff and pink stuff.  I feel so blessed to have

Chicken Fried Rice #friedrice #chicken #sidedish

Chicken Fried Rice I did it. I finally made some fried rice. Now I can’t wait to make some more.  I love fried rice. When I was a teenager, we were always ordering fried rice from a Chinese take out. My fav then was ham fried rice. Now, I love them all.  Well, I did come across one online the other day that was Ketchup Fried Rice. Even if I

Taco Egg Rolls -

TACO EGG ROLLS Mexican food with Asian concept! I know, I know, haven’t I done enough egg rolls?  Nope!  I haven’t. But, I promise this will be it for awhile. I’m being threatened with being put in Egg Roll Anonymous. 🙂  I swear this one wasn’t my fault.  My daughter, Ms. Taco Lover, suggested, actually begged that I try to make these.  She offered up the taco meat and cheese

Baked Squash Casserole

  SAUTEED SQUASH   How good does this look?  Would it look even better if I told you that this squash came from my garden?? Oh yeah!!   This is a favorite round my house.  When we started gardening years ago, it was a for sure thing that we would be growing squash.  Some years, I include zucchini, but this year, I only did the crook neck yellow squash.
