Beef Enchilada Casserole

The best beef enchiladas casserole - This simple and easy casserole can be made on the stovetop, slow cooker, or Crock Pot. Includes instructions for both.

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

Chicken Tetrazzini

Quick & easy chicken tetrazzini casserole recipes - This simple and healthy 15 minute meal is "baked" in the microwave oven using boneless chicken, asparagus, mushrooms, pasta, and a creamy sauce.

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

Zucchini Parmesan

Zucchini Parmesan

I’m seeing zucchini recipes everywhere lately. I love seeing how other people use them during this time of year when they’re coming out our ears. We’ve eaten enough zucchini this summer to make us green. Zucchini eggs. Zucchini muffins. Zucchini cake. Cheese stuffed zucchini. Chicken and cheese stuffed zucchini. Zucchini with pasta and chicken. Pasta primavera. Zucchini bake. Veggie lasagna. Ratatouille. Batter-dipped zucchini. Pan fried zucchini. Grilled zucchini. I’m sure we’ve eaten it other ways, too, but I can’t remember them all. I made up this recipe to use some of our glut of the fabulous vegetable after we tired … Read more

Garden Pasta

Garden season is upon us, and I couldn’t be happier. Joe is battling a groundhog for dominance in his newly expanded garden, but the hot, rainy weather is helping our plants to move right along. On top of that, we frequent a few local farmers’ roadside stands to pick up things that aren’t yet ready in our own garden. Suffice it to say that we’re eating a lot of whole, healthy, local food, and we love it. Today, Grace and I picked up 2 pounds of peas, a pint of black raspberries, and 3 small zucchinis from a farm stand … Read more

Quick and Easy Salsa Chicken Pasta

Quick and easy salsa chicken pasta

I feel like a broken record when I saw that I prefer to make food from fresh, whole ingredients that I’ve prepared myself, but that sometimes, that just doesn’t work out. For the times that we get home late or spent too much time playing outside, we need quick and easy options that come together quickly. We had the opportunity to try out Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips this week, and they fit the bill perfectly. Tyson Grilled Chicken Breast & Strips are fully cooked, 98% fat-free whole breast fillets without preservatives or breading. They’re a quick and … Read more

It’s comfort food, it’s delicious, and it’s fairly healthy.quick and easy baked ravioli
