Quick Tortilla Pizza

So in my house lunch is that hardest meal to come up with. I always have oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt on hand and I typically have a plan in place for dinner. Lunch, on the other hand, is the forgotten meal. I pretty much just grab whatever and try to pass it off as a…

Garlic Green Beans

It’s hard to come up with sides sometimes, when I was a kid when my parents asked me what veggie I wanted I always said peas, I liked them so much one of my nicknames my dad gave me was “pea girl.” So as an adult I try and mix it up a little. This…

Chicken and Green Pepper

As you all well know I like to make things from scratch because I love cooking and I love to improve on things. Every so often however I run across something premade that is good and makes my life easier. This is an example of one of those times. I am a big fan of…

Pepper Stuffed Pork Loin

Chicken Parm Pockets

Ok so stick with me here…I know this is going to sound really weird but these are really good. I am blessed to have a mother that can make the worlds best spaghetti sauce. I watched her make it this year…yeah, I say watched because her “recipe” is a full page of notes that have…

Beef and Noodles

Since I buy a half a cow every year I always have a freezer full of beef. Until I started doing that I hardly ever cooked with beef because it’s so much more expensive than chicken and pork. Nowadays its nothing for me to make porterhouse steaks just because I don’t have a whole lot…

Grahm Cracker Crust Pumpkin Pie

With it being Thanksgiving today I thought it was a good time to share my pumpkin pie recipe! I love pie in general but I really love pumpkin pie, but let me tell you there is such thing as a bad one…I have eaten them reluctantly but bad pie is better than no pie! Ingredients:…

Easy Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie
