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 believe this to be the tastiest, easiest, quickest-to-prepare chili there is!! For years I've played with chili recipies, trying to find or create the perfect one -- and now I've found it. I often do half ground pork and half ground venison instead of beef and I always use frozen corn -- either bought or home grown.
My mom came to cook and clean for a few days after our first daughter was born and saw this recipe in my Quick Cooking magazine. My husband and I were both skeptical when we heard the ingredients, but fell in love at first bite! I've made it about once a month since then. It's incredibly quick and easy. I usually do 1 cup white rice and 1/3 cup partially cooked wild rice, but it's delicious either way. I always use Campbell's Chicken with White and Wild Rice Soup instead of the regular Chicken and Rice, but there again, either works. The Wild Rice soup has some veggies in it that add some nice colour, though.
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!).
"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!
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!
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;)
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.
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! :)
