Some nights I just want to throw dinner together quickly, easily, and efficiently. Those nights are usually on Sundays, or my family’s “day off”. I’m the one that does the cooking and cleaning so on Sundays I want to relax with everyone else so I pick meals that are fast and easy, but I still want something tasty! That is exactly what my Chili Cheese Dog Casserole Recipe is. Its one of my family’s favorite meals. We don’t eat it much because it isn’t exactly great for you, but we have to indulge a little everyone once in awhile right? 😉Continue reading
A lot of you know that I have recently started doing Weight Watchers and I’m always looking for yummy recipe to share with my family and with you guys!

I don’t know about you but I have much better energy in the morning, so if I can have dinner cooking by 9 am it’s a win win for everyone. Continue reading
In my family, corned beef and cabbage is a favorite dish to serve for St. Patrick’s Day. I grew up in central PA where sometimes we do things a little different. We have always made our corned beef and cabbage with canned corned beef. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s that I even knew that corned beef could be bought in the fresh meat department at the grocery store and just means that the cut of beef was cured with salt crystals called corns. Sad isn’t it? I still have never made this dish any other way. I know it may sound a little strange but it makes a delicious hearty stew. My family loves this Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe.
Head of cabbage, chopped
2 cans corned beef
5-6 large potatoes, peeledand diced
4 cups water
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic to taste
Put all ingredients in a large soup/stew pot. Bring to a boil. Boil until potoatoes and cabbage are tender (about 15-20 min). Simmer as long as you like, serve hot. You could also make this dish in a crockpot.
Just in case you really want to feel like you are dining in central Pennsylvania, you should have some crusty bread with homemade apple butter to go along with your Corned Beef and Cabbage. Oh and you should eat the leftovers for day and days and days until no one wants Corned Beef and Cabbage until next year. Happy St. Patricks’s Day! Don’t forget to wear green, you don’t want to get pinched.
I hope you enjoy this recipe that is one of our family’s St. Patrick’s Day traditions. We like to have fun and what better fun is there than good food, good friends, and great family fun. And since there is a little bit of Irish in everybody, please share with us some of your recipes, superstitions, or activities.

I love a good lasagna. I think they are a great meal to make when you are having a family dinner. They taste even better the next day. They also freeze easily. This is How to make Lasagna.
1) You need to buy the ingredients
2) You need to spray the pan with cooking spray
3) You need to layer the ingredients
4) You need to cover the Lasagna with foil
5) Place the Lasagna in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees
6) Take off the foil and continue to cook for another 10- 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbling.
7) Remove from the oven and let cool a little and then serve.
These are the ingredients to the Lasagna in the picture:
1 box of oven ready lasagna noodles
1 package of mozzarella cheese
1 small 8 oz ricotta cheese or cottage cheese will work
1 large can of chunky tomatoes
1 small can of can of tomatoes with basil and garlic
1 tablespoon of crushed garlic
1 cup of water
1/2 lb of ground beef
1/2 lb of sweet Italian sausage
The first thing you need to do is cook the ground beef and sausage until it is brown.
The second thing you need to do is layer the noodles on the bottom and place some of the water on top.
Then you need to put the items in order in the baking dish. The pour 1/2 can of the tomatoes on top.
Then place the ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese on top of the tomatoes .
Then place your meat mixture. You keep building this way until you are out of noodles.

We are sharing our favorite casserole recipe, a heart Cowboy Casserole Recipe that is perfect for cold winter nights or potlucks.
It’s around 40 degrees here in Tennessee today and it’s only the beginning of November! I’m thinking it’s going to be a cold winter for us which is something we are not really used to! I personally don’t mind the cold weather (as long as I don’t have to be out in it, ha!) because cold weather mean it’s time for snuggles and holidays! Casseroles are one of my favorite things to make during the winter because they are easy to make and are hot and filling. One of my family’s favorite casserole’s is this Cowboy Casserole Recipe! It brings together some meat, veggies, cheese, and tots all in 1 dish and is oh-so-yummy! Want to learn how to make it?
