BBQ Beef Muffin Cups Recipe

One of my mom’s favorite recipes was corn mini pies. They are made with a delicious filling of cream cheese, corn, and chicken, stuffed inside layers of Pillsbury Grands!® biscuits and baked. My mom made them all the time, and we have carried on this tradition. Grace and Allie love them, too. Except for the onions. They don’t love the onions. We like the concept of corn mini pies so much that we’ve branched out to other fillings. Our next favorite is BBQ beef. These cups are quick and easy to put together, making them perfect for dinners after a … Read more

Beef and Green Beans | A Quick and Easy Weeknight Recipe

Green beans are iffy at this time of year, so when we see nice ones, we always buy them to make beef and green beans. Joe and I have been eating this a lot lately. We both love it, and it is quick and easy to throw together after work. I personally think this recipe is better than the beef and green beans or chicken and green beans at the local Chinese restaurant. It has a lot more flavor.       Print Recipe Beef and Green Beans Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Servings Ingredients 1/2 pound ground beef2 … Read more

Easy Mexican Pizza

Easy Mexican Pizza

This is a sponsored post. Joe created the recipe himself, and all opinions are mine. The worst part of my being gluten-free is the lack of convenience food. When we’ve been working out in the garden for too long, and we come inside, covered with dirt and hungry, we have painfully few options. Joe put together these Mexican pizzas one day when exactly that happened. The sun was shining, and we gardened and played outside late into the evening. By the time we came in, it was after 6 o’clock. Joe made Mexican pizzas on Flatout Thin Crust Flatbreads (which … Read more

Easy Black Bean Chili (featuring a giveaway)

easy chili recipe

I can’t believe it’s fall already. I’m still stuck in mid-summer, but the weather is cool, the heat is on, and the leaves are starting to turn. It’s officially chili weather. Joe likes to serve chili in acorn squash bowls or over rice. I like to eat it out of a plain old bowl. We agree on one thing, though, and that’s that chili is perfect for crisp fall and winter days. This particular chili recipe couldn’t be easier to put together. It simmers for an hour, but the prep is really quick. The finished chili is good, flavorful but … Read more

The Best Hamburgers I Ever Ate

the best hamburger recipe

Last year, on Memorial Day, I posted my then favorite hamburger recipe. I have a new favorite, so I thought this would be a good time to share it. Joe found this recipe on; just like the reviewers say, the burgers fall apart when you cook them. After some experimenting (and advice from our Facebook community), we made some adjustments to the recipe that kept it together. This recipe was worth the work. The burgers are spicy – full of garlic, full of grilled onions, full of BBQ sauce – and oh so good. I wanted to eat two … Read more

Crockpot Meatloaf

crockpot meatloaf

Today is Old Grandma’s birthday. I wanted to write a post all about some fabulous recipe that she makes that I make now, but I couldn’t think of anything. When Grandma was a young woman, she cooked in restaurants. For most of her life, Grandma made everything from scratch. Everything. I remember very clearly the year that Grandma first started buying frozen pies. I was sad, but I wouldn’t have dreamed telling Grandma that I wanted a homemade pie. Old Grandma turns 84 today. She doesn’t do much cooking these days. She heats frozen and ready-made foods. She eats from … Read more
