Just Me & the Girls

Since Greg is a trucker, he's often not around for supper — sometimes for weeks at a time. My girls and I generally eat a little differently when he's not home. They're not big into casseroles and neither really eats potatoes (other than fries!), so we eat a lot of pasta and rice dishes and not a whole lot of meat — which isn't a bad thing, but wouldn't go over well with daddy around!!

I love macaroni and cheese. This version is terrific, with a crusty-cheesy layer on top and creamy-cheesy baked pasta in the middle.

Quick, easy pizzas that kids love. From Betty Crocker's Grill It.

Recipe #177531

Taken from The Taste of Home Magazine --- This is a ground beef and corn bread recipe all in one casserole and made into a main dish meal --- I also add in corn nibets and some jalapeno peppers also, serve with gravy on the side, this is total comfort food! :)

The Benihana fried rice recipe. It used to be posted on their website.

Recipe #141457

My whole family enjoys this easy dish. I make it often with cornbread on the side.

Recipe #104215

Great for Mardi Gras entertaining - got it from 2/18/06 Post Dispatch

Recipe #156880

This is a healthy and delicious one-dish meal.

Recipe #168766

I doubt this really qualifies as authentic Chinese cuisine, but it's delicious nonetheless and very simple. Use pre-cooked rice that's been sitting in the fridge for at least a day or two (or in the freezer) for the best results.

Recipe #185441

Here's an easy tomato-free recipe that goes great with Mexican dishes. It's also good alongside a black bean/corn salad with lots of grilled veggies and assorted dips or salsas.

Recipe #179537

Very impressive and easy dish. I think I originally got this one from a magazine.

Loved this recipe I found in "Quick Cooking". I reduced the amount of olive oil in the original recipe, and this turned out to be quick weeknight meal for the family. I served this with broccoli and bread.

Fried rice with a variation. We like this on Sunday morning as a brunch item.

This is a recipe that I've used for years. It's so quick and easy for a week night meal and has such wonderful flavor.

This recipe is adapted from American Diabetes Association cookbook--Diabetes & Heart Healthy Cookbook. It is a delicious blending of southwestern flavors that is so simple to prepare.

Recipe #178494

"Sopa seca" literally translates to "dry soup". A friend of ours from Mexico served this delicious rice sidedish to us and I enthusiastically went about finding a recipe for it. This is from the cookbook Mexican: Healthy Ways With a Favourite Cuisine by Jane Milton. A more glutinous rice dish than the ever popular Spanish rice. Is this an authentic Mexican recipe? I don't know, but I do know we like this dish!

Recipe #125898

I'm not sure where my mom got this recipe, but these are THE BEST MEAT BUNS EVER -- but sadly, they're NOT quick and easy, so make a day of it and fill your freezer! Plan ahead because the dough's easier to work with if it's refrigerated overnight. Serve with plum sauce -- that's right, plum sauce. You'll never be sorry.

Recipe #176404

A wonderful side dish to almost any meat entree. This works well with any type of rice - brown or white, long-grain or short-grain.

Recipe #71517

This delicious pasta is very simple to make, yet it tastes as though it took hours. There are many variations of this recipe, but I've found this to be the easiest and best tasting. It is by no means a low-fat meal, but if you go for a nice big walk after you eat, you will think this pasta was worth the extra exercise! Serve it with a crisp salad and some crusty bread (for mopping up any excess sauce!).
