Enchiladas con Carne

Those of you who know me know I’m kind of a sucker for Mexican food. Or Southwestern. Or Tex-Mex. When I saw these old school Tex-Mex type enchiladas pop up in an email from the New York Times, I was all over it. Enchiladas con Carne from El Real Tex-Mex in Houston.

Our Family’s Favorite Tacos

Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.

Classic Quaker Oats Meatloaf

This really is an old-school classic meatloaf. Just plain cookin’ & hardly anything to making it at all. It’s one of those recipes that really makes you appreciate the taste of FOOD.

Spicy Korean Meatballs

These pretty little meatballs with a bit of a Korean kick & a sweet/spicy glaze are just fun, fun, fun. They’d also be great for game day or an appetizer at any party – but can I just mention Super Bowl?! It’s coming right up and you’ll want these. Even if you don’t know you do, yet, you’re gonna want them!

Skillet Lasagna

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!

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!

Essential Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes. I don’t know if I ever used a recipe for the basic Sloppy Joe. They always seemed to come from standing in front of the fridge and rummaging through the cupboards as the clock struck five and I was wondering what to make for dinner!
