Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup

Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup

Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup has got to be the perfect end of summer soup, especially if you happen to have a garden still spitting out zucchini! Here in the Twin Cities, I’m still seeing a few on my neighbor’s plants. Me, I know better than to ever plant zucchini – the plants never stop and you’ll have zucchini out the ears, lol!

Southern Tomato Gravy

Southern Tomato Gravy

I don’t know who to “blame” for me whipping up this Southern Tomato Gravy the other day. Certainly not all my family that has migrated down to Georgia because I have never had Southern Tomato Gravy at their homes nor heard the words Tomato Gravy pass their lips. I knew it was going to be just the thing to go over the leftover Biscuits I made the other day, though.

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagne - easy meal with all the taste of a real deal lasagne

I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!

Old Fashioned “American” Chili

There was a time when the most popular Chili used to be quite a bit different than the trendy varieties of today. A time when it was made with simpler ingredients and was served as a family meal, not a culinary adventure. A time when it was saucy enough to add a few crackers – and saucy enough that one HAD to use a spoon. I miss that chili.
