Philly Cheese Steak

One night I wanted to make steaks but I wanted to make something a little different.  My favorite thing to cook is something new, there are recipes I don’t mind making over and over but I find it way more fun to make something I haven’t before.  So I went to my refrigerator and realized…

Potstickers

I learned with my dad how to make egg rolls years ago, and still, love to eat them. I, however, wanted to try something new so I tried potstickers.  They aren’t too different from one another, the main difference is they are mostly meat and you put that meat in your wrapper raw and cook…

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…

Spicy Chicken Sandwiches

  I don’t know about you but I love spicy chicken sandwiches. So instead of running out and buying one every time I wanted one I figured I should make my own. You more than likely have the majority of the ingredients you need already so this makes for an easy crowd pleaser. Ingredients: 2-4…

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…

Shredded Beef Tacos

Since we buy half a cow every year I have tons of beef in my freezer, one of the cuts I don’t use too often is chuck roast mainly because my husband isn’t a big fan of stews and roasts (crazy I know!!). So needless to say I needed to think of something that I…

Pepper Stuffed Pork Loin

Pork loins are hard to cook because they are very easy to dry out. I wanted to come up with some kind of recipe that would help prevent that…. Ingredients: Pork Loin (the one I used was a little under 2 pounds but you can use whatever size) ½ cup honey ¼ cup dark brown…

Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta

What makes this recipe great is there are just a handful of ingredients so as long as you have cream in your refrigerator more than likely you have the other ingredients. Ingredients 1 box of penne (or whatever type of pasta tickles your fancy) 2-4 pieces of bacon 1 large chicken breast ¼ cup butter…

Fried Pork Chops

Who doesn’t like fried food?? It is my weakness in life, I try to not love it so much but I can’t help it…that said, here is my fried pork chop recipe! Ingredients 6 boneless pork chops ¼ cup cornmeal 1 cup flour 1 tbsp black pepper 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. onion powder…
