We made this casserole for dinner last week, and it was very fine. I ate the leftovers for every meal until they were gone. It really was that good. Cheese, potatoes, crunchy. How can you go wrong? You can’t. The only snag is that this is the least healthy potato dish ever. (Maybe not ever. It’s not deep fried. But close.) It’s definitely an occasional treat, not an everyday food. But then, you’re a grownup, and you can eat unhealthy potatoes anytime you want to. Have fun.

While I was writing a blog post, Joe asked me what we should have for dinner. It was late in the day, and we needed something quick and easy. I suggested BBQ enchiladas, knowing that we had everything required. Joe thought they sounded good, too, so he got to work. And then he realized that we didn’t have any enchilada sauce, only taco sauce. Rats. The recipe was started. Instead of bagging the whole thing (my mouth was watering for BBQ chicken), I found a recipe for enchilada sauce on AllRecipes.com. Fortunately, we had everything we needed for that recipe, … Read more
This recipe is another in our challenge to try a new dish every week. Since getting started, we have tried some awesome new recipes – and some duds. We started with a cookbook from The Pampered Chef called 29 Minutes to Dinner. It’s really fantastic; if you go to a cooking show, you should consider it. In case you’re wondering, I bought it myself and have had no contact with any representatives from The Pampered Chef, except when I myself was a consultant 10 years ago. Anyway, that is the first cookbook I grabbed from my cookbook hoarding collection, so … Read more
Joe made this pasta dish this week, and (after it was prepared), he informed me that I would not like it. He said it was bland and lacked spices. Terrific, Dear! I never had any tetrazzini before, so I didn’t know what to expect. After his proclamation, I considered going out to eat. By myself. At a restaurant with jazz music and dim lights and no children’s menu. Imagine the peace and quiet of a meal alone! Bliss! I didn’t go. I stayed home and took my chances with the tetrazzini. I’m glad I did; it was delicious. The casserole … Read more
Originally posted on March 21, 2009. I’ve changed the recipe a bit since then. I do not know where this recipe came from. I got it from a friend, who got it from a friend, who’d also gotten it from a friend. It’s like a chain letter, only you’ll love it. Broccoli, Cheese, and Rice Casserole is supposed to be a side dish. It’s delicious and flavorful. We never eat it as a side dish any more. When we make this, we open a can of shredded chicken and call it a meal. This is equally good with frozen … Read more
I’ve been craving some comfort food.
This Hash Brown Casserole from Weight Watchers’ Cream of the Crop magazine is a healthier, lower fat version of comfort food that tastes as good as the original.
