Sloppy Joe Casserole

I know I’ve said I don’t really “get” casseroles! Cook a bunch of good food, mix it together and recook it! But even I get how nice it is to pull a pan of hot, bubbly, and cheesy deliciousness out of the oven, plop it on the table and call “Dinner!” And this Sloppy Joe Casserole qualifies!

Cheesy Pasta Bake

This is the best!! Italian Sausage, fresh Mozzarella, Wine...make it!

Can a person have too many pasta recipes? Possibly, especially if you’re on a budget. It’s almost too easy to turn to pasta dishes, so when I do make one, I try to make it the best! You’ll love this warm and comforting dish loaded with fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage and for a healthier twist, ground chicken or turkey. Use ground beef if you’d rather, though.

Chicken Pot Pie like you WISH your Grandma made!

not to "dis" grandma, but this is outstanding!!

I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts! Today, as I made it again, I updated with new photos. That night, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?

Buttermilk Biscuits for Topping for a 13 x 9″ Casserole or Ramekins

Years ago I came across this recipe, so long ago, I’m not sure where it came from. This makes enough to cover a 13 x 9 inch casserole or to make a topping for 6 individual Pot Pies, like my “Chicken Pot Pie you WISH your Grandma Made!” They also make some of the best drop or rolled or patted out biscuits you’ll ever taste! Can I say superb? Yep, I just did!

These biscuits are formulated to be a fantastic topping, but sometimes I cheat when I want a biscuit – they’re that good. With any biscuit, the ingredients are important, but the technique will make it or break it. Handle gently and minimally and you’ll be rewarded.

Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole with Green Olives

Easy Cheesy Tuna Casserole - it has green olives. Honestly I would have left them out but they turned out to be the best part!

For years, my daughter’s been describing this casserole to me, a family favorite of her in-laws. For years, in my head, I’ve been thinking: Do we NEED another Tuna Casserole? The “We” being not just our family, but the world as a whole! One taste of this casserole was all it took to change my mind.

Creamy Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

When I came across a recipe for Macaroni and Cheese that had a head of cauliflower hidden in the sauce, how could I resist? I love the idea of “stealth veggies” and try to take advantage of sneaking extra vegetables in any dish I can.

Vibrant Vegetarian Casserole with Perfect Brown Rice

We’ve had a new addition to the family – last week I was able to visit my lil sis, her son and his wife, and a brand new baby grand-nephew. It was truly a week of excesses, traveling, graduations, Memorial Day.
