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!!

N'awlin's style of chicken with an updated Alfredo sauce.

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.

I used to love these when I was younger, I could eat two in one sitting! I haven't had fast food in a year or two, but these taste like I remember Taco Bell's quesadillas tasting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Recipe #78194

This is similar to many Baked Pasta dishes but with the distinct flavors of pizza. I created this recipe yesterday and took it to a dinner party as the main dish. It was a big hit and every woman there asked for the recipe. I decided that anything that popular should be posted here. You do not have to use the same kind of pasta I did...but should use a pasta which will remain slightly firm after boiling and baking so that it is not mushy. NOTE** I've had several people ask about when to add the spices...you can either add them to the sauce or to the sausage when you cook it. Either way works great! Since this recipe is an original creation of mine, it tickles me so very much that lots of people are enjoying it! Thanks everyone!

One of my favorite frozen weight watchers dinners is Santa Fe Beans and Rice. This is my knock off version that comes pretty close.

Recipe #151779

Quick easy recipe to make after a hard day's work. For the mashed potatoes use plain cooked potatoes mashed with no added ingredients. Just cook extra potatoes the night before and take out what you will need for this recipe. If you want a little spice add 1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes I like a bit of Tartar sauce and a green salad along side or a couple of steamed vegetables. Great summer dish. This recipe goes a long way from one small can of salmon. I would like to stress use leftover cooked potatoes not left over mashed potatoes that already have got a lot of extra ingredients in them!

Recipe #31710

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

Recipe #104215

Great change from regular pasta sauce. Fast to assemble--40 minutes to the plate. Kick it up by adding extra red pepper flakes if you like--I do!

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.

A nice simple supper.

Recipe #64988

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

Recipe #141457

Quick and easy way to satisfy my Chinese food cravings. Also great w/some Hoisin sauce and ginger.

Recipe #58408

This is my new favourite pizza! I will often make a double batch of the chicken/BBQ sauce mixture and freeze it. I usually caramelize the onions by frying them until soft with 1 Tbsp of butter and 1 Tbsp of brown sugar. This makes the pizza very sweet but I like it that way;)

Recipe #98044

This is from my mother's Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library from the 70's. I've been enjoying it for 3 decades! It's so delicious, and not as hard as the recipe is lengthy. It makes even a novice cook look pretty darn impressive!

Recipe #29691

"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

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!).

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

Recipe #177531

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

Recipe #62635

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.

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