    I loved it when Mom used to make this for us! I have no idea if she originally made it for Dad, who had been in the army, or if she just liked it because it tasted good and was a budget stretcher. A traditional favorite, good ol' SOS. Note: the title of this recipe specifies that it is made ground beef, rather than chipped beef; "authentic" SOS is generally made with chipped beef, however many folks also refer to the ground beef version by the same name.

    Recipe #28667

    Oh boy, these are good-good-GOOD! If you like stuffed burgers and poppers, you'll love these. :)

    Recipe #29251

    Once upon a time, my husband told me that he didn't like cooked cabbage. "Ah ha," I thought, "a challenge!" So I made a dish based on my "Simmered Leeks" recipe that works so well, and -- let's just put it this way: he changed his mind. He loves it when I make simmered cabbage! A very simple and tasty way to use this much-maligned veggie.

    Recipe #100417

    Easy and affordable meal I used to make as a kid. My family loved it.

    Recipe #47335

    Easy family dish, popular with Dad and kids.

    Recipe #23121

    My mom gave me her old crock pot before I moved 900 miles away to college. I told her I didn't know how to make anything in it, and she told me to just 'throw' these 4 ingredients inside and turn it on. Simple enough!! I always invite my girlfriends over and we all love it!! It's the closest thing to a real home-cooked meal we have while we are away.

    Recipe #29017

    Rice symbolizes prosperity and wealth, so rice balls are good for New Year's and wedding celebrations. I love these tasty little morsels, and they go well with many different kinds of food! I've served them with various meats and seafood, and they're always welcome at my table. :) Prep time includes chilling.

    Recipe #50265

    The original version of this recipe came from "The Northern Exposure Cookbook" by Ellis Weiner. This is a real family-style kid-pleasing recipes that I often bring to potlucks and family gatherings. It is like a pot of macaroni & cheese but with the added surpise of the hotdog slices. It is easy prepare, is inexpensive, and doubles nicely. I have even prepared the ingredients the night before and baked it the next day with success (just allow the ingredients to come to room temperature before baking or add a little extra cooking time). You may use reduced fat ingredients if you have health concerns, but it will not be quite as rich. That being said, I do just about always use "light" hotdogs with no real sacrifice to taste. Prep time includes cooking the pasta.

    Recipe #24205

    This used to be a favorite years ago when I first got married. :) Easy!

    Recipe #28256

    This is a excellent dish for college students, or bachelors (very easy & very inexpensive).

    Recipe #2066

    This is a great recipe, easy to make, and popular with kids! You can use different flavors of barbecue sauce and different kinds of refrigerator biscuits as well (although I recommend the Pillsbury Grands sized ones as easiest to use).

    Recipe #28689

    Chicken for College Student I made this in college in my crockpot and always got good reviews. My French grandmother called it "Parisian Chicken" and you will see variations of it all around.

    Recipe #5146

    My mom has been using this recipe since she was married in the 50's and it's as good now as then. She still makes it for me when I visit. :) It's wonderful when first served, but is even better chilled... cold meatloaf sandwiches, mmm! A versatile recipe, you can easily alter it to your own tastes. Experiment and enjoy! :)

    I make this when I am on the fly (and sometimes when I'm not). Serve it with a salad and some garlic bread and you have a fast and tasty dinner. I can't remember where I got this recipe but I have been making it for a long time and it goes over really well in my house.

    Recipe #18005

    This isn't really cooking, but it's a cheap and easy way to have almost home-made pizza fast. It's great for starving college students. This is a good source of protein, calcium and vitamin A, and we used to get 5 frozen pizzas for $10.

    Delicious, sweet, little, buttery biscuits with a hint of cinnamon.

    Recipe #39074

    I love meatloaf, and tend to make large ones to ensure that there will be leftovers (nothing is better the next day than a cold meatloaf sandwich!). But sometimes I end up with half of a 3-pound meatloaf and nobody wants sandwiches, so here's what I make to use it in a tasty, fast, and easy way... Note: there is no salt added to the recipe because the salt that's contained in the tortilla chips and meatloaf, but you'll need to judge that for yourself; this one can easily get too salty if you're not careful. :)

    Recipe #38892

    This makes a pizza-like dish, only with barbecue sauce. A quick, simple, tasty dish for a family supper--a definite kid-pleaser. A 9 1/2-oz package of biscuits gives a relatively thin crust. Use a 16 oz package of biscuits if you want a thicker crust. Update: It may be tempting to substitute ground turkey for ground beef in this recipe to make it more "heart-healthy," but because the beef flavor is an important part of this dish's appeal, I recommend against it. Of course, it's only as good as the barbecue sauce you use, so make sure you use a barbecue sauce--and a hot pepper sauce--you know you like.

    Recipe #91866

    This is a fool proof, quick and easy way to whip up a tasy dish when the cupboard is bare. I am both thrilled and amazed how easy it is to turn a packet of 'Top Ramen type' noodles into a gourmet dish!

    Recipe #61904

    Stuffed burgers are great, and here's a burger rich with blue cheese. Mmm!
