    This is the best french toast EVER. So sweet and rich! You prepare it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning.

    Recipe #169730

    This is from an old edition of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Preparation and cooking times are guesses (my mom made these, not me!), and do not include time to cook the potatoes. These would be great for a retro-themed gathering.

    Recipe #74079

    My elderly father is a fan of pot roast and it's hard to top the roasts he remembers my mother making. This one from Bon Appetit was a hit with him

    Recipe #153130

    My sister-in-law gave me this recipe. It's a different and tasty way to serve carrots.

    Recipe #163280

    This is comfort food personified. I've been making this for as long as I can remember. No one has ever NOT liked it, and I never have any left over for another meal!

    Recipe #139598

    I pared this recipe down from another one on here to suit a faster preparation. This is still wonderful!!! And of course, even better the next day! Any small shape pasta will work - I like the small shells.

    Recipe #158440

    A quick and easy soup made with ingredients usually found in the pantry/fridge. Can also be wizzed up in the microwave.

    Recipe #165823

    This is pretty calorie laden, but worth the splurge once or twice a year.

    Recipe #41015

    This recipe can be very easily doubled or tripled as necessary. I serve this with buttered egg noodles and broccoli.

    Recipe #95515

    A delicious, old-fashioned splurge. I serve this with very buttery mashed potatoes.

    Recipe #95595

    I think this is the only recipe I actually made out of some low-cal cookbook I bought. This is NOT a recipe for frozen or canned beans, use fresh and using enough garlic is the key. I usually use about 12 - 15 cloves. Like the title says, it's really quick, easy and awesome...I think it's also healthy!! Healthy is not one of my favorite cooking terms, so if it's healthy and I like it, you know it's good!!

    Recipe #180889

    Recipe #11585

    This recipe is great for potlucks because it makes such a huge quantity. It is kind of difficult to scale down because you would end up with partial cans of ingredients. I took this to a church potluck, and I actually had men coming up to me and asking to give their wives the recipe! The recipe came from Taste of Home.

    Recipe #153761

    A different way to serve corn. It is always welcome at potlucks and goes a long ways.

    Recipe #32061

    The only frozen dinner I have ever cared to eat was the Banquet Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and corn. I hate the potatoes (instant is just yuck), but do enjoy the rest of the meal so I decided to try to make my own. This is the results of my efforts and I must say, the taste is very close, but even better. This is cheap, easy and freezes very well. If you are going to freeze these then don't freeze them in the gravy. They are much better if the gravy is fresh. Be sure to cut the gravy ingredients if you are not using all the steaks. These can be frozen raw or already cooked.

    Recipe #125726

    This is a take on the Tuna Noodle Casserole my mom used to bake my brother and I when we were kids. It was the first meal I ever cooked for myself (when I was in college). Being lazy, impatient and hungry, I figured why bake it? The cheese must be extra sharp...mild or sharp just don't cut it. This recipe is so easily adaptable. Really like tuna? Use a bigger can. Don't like tuna? Use shredded chicken. Have broccoli you need to use? Use broccoli. It's definitely not low-cal, but it is quick and tasty comfort food!

    Recipe #166858

    Got and adapted this recipe from Bon Appetite. Quick, easy and really really good. The recipe calls for the peppers sauteed. I actually leave out the peppers until the very end and add with the corn kernels. Serving with sour cream is a must. Enjoy!!

    Recipe #181592

    I LOVE chicken pot pie, it is my ultimate comfort food, soI was very excited when I found this easy and fairly quick more frozen pot pies for me. I don't like cooked carrot so I leave it out, just personal preference. I would NOT leave out or substitute anything for the sherry. It is one of the main flavor components. The recipe uses a 13 x 9 baking dish, but I've also made them in small aluminum pot pie pans. The only problem with the small tins is reheating can not be done in the microwave. I like to make a batch in the tins and cook a few and freeze the rest uncooked to have later. The recipe calls for puff pastry, but the filling lends itself to a variety of toppings, pie dough, buttermilk biscuit dough or mashed potatoes. Super easy and super tasty! Enjoy!

    I love this tuna dish.

    Recipe #87127

    My DH reminded me about this recipe. It's been a long time since I've made it. It will be on the 'Nascar' menu next week end!!
