    I made these up one night when I was confronted with a pound of ground beef and didn't want to make either burgers or tacos ... so why not combine the two? I used the white corn taco shells that come 12 in a 4.6 oz. box so they're kind of small; if you use larger shells the yield will be less; yield also depends on how much you fill 'em up! Also, a little of the tangy "taco sauce" I created goes a long way.

    Chicken and Spaghetti in a creamy parmesan sauce. No tomatoes in this one.

    Recipe #99423

    These are really close to the real thing. My family was in heaven! They're great for dinner, football parties, or kid's birthday parties. I'm not real fond of White Castle myself but I gobbled these up. Note: To freeze: Assemble hamburgers less the condiments. Flash freeze, wrap in plastic wrap, put in a ziplock bag and label. To heat: Microwave until heated through.

    Recipe #109264

    I think this is my husband's most requested steak supper. And it's ok with me, because it is so easy to do, and tastes super!

    Recipe #33245

    I never could get the hang of making spaghetti and meatballs without it becoming spaghetti with meat sauce. Every time I tried to cook meatballs in a frying pan they just crumbled into bits. It was embarrassing. I was so glad when my Dad showed me how to do this. This is a simple recipe for making meatballs in the oven, and a few ideas how to use them. Once baked, you can freeze the meatballs individually on a cookie sheet, then toss into freezer bags for later use. Just pull out whatever amount you'll need to feed the crew. Don't be scared about the lengthy instructions. The end bits are ideas for using the finished meatballs. And you know how I like to ramble ;-)

    Recipe #82697

    Don't get on my case if this isn't authentically Indonesian, okay? When I found the recipe, it was called Indonesian Chicken, and, not being Indonesian or knowing anyone from Indonesia, I can neither confirm nor deny that this is, indeed, Indonesian Chicken. It is, however, definitely a recipe for chicken, and a mighty tasty one at that. The peanut sauce is also useful to put on things that you don't want to serve naked, such as noodles, rice, or steamed veggies.

    Recipe #85242

    This is a good basic sauce. Feel free to add ,perhaps a little lime juice, a pinch of cilantro, some peanut butter? Have fun!

    This is a recipe I have developed over a number of years. This is the only spaghetti sauce my family will request! Very easy to make. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

    Recipe #26217

    I've tried many recipes, this is the best. I once 'dec-tupled' (10x) this recipe to sell sandwiches at a craft fair at my church. People were waiting in line to buy leftovers. Freezes well, goes up to the lake or camping well and is a hit on Halloween...it's no-fail. Easy to double, triple, etc. I've been making Joes this way for over 20 years. ***03-08-09, I just reinvented this recipe tonight when I went to make it for dinner and found I didn't have an 8-oz. can of tomato sauce (shame on me). The family was upset with me when I subbed an 8-oz. can of pizza sauce and told them to suck it up and call them 'Pizza Joes' and then served them up with shredded mozzarella cheese on the toasted buns, top and bottom. They loved it. I left out the BBQ sauce in this preparation and just used a 1/2 cup ketchup. Pizza Joes are good to go!

    Recipe #63689

    This is a great tasting recipe and so easy that even my daughter doesn't complain when I ask her to make it.

    Recipe #16371

    A nice change from tomato sauce. We love this for a fast dinner. My girls (ages 2 and 5)like it as well and it's a good way for us to get them to eat some spinach! (You know, if you mix anything with cheese it tastes great)!

    A great side dish for veal, or a nice vegetarian pasta meal.

    Recipe #21706

    This flavorful, low-fat dish is made in one pan. Add a vegetable and dinner is ready.

    Recipe #59904

    Ok, you've got 20 minutes to get dinner on the table, and the table is piled with books, papers, afterschool snack wrappers and a tennis shoe with a broken lace. You're desperate, but dinner can still be delicious, and yes, you can get it done fast! So, you walk into your pantry, grab a few items, and pat yourself on the back for making those wise purchases. Dinner will be a snap! Call The Kids and/or The Spouse (most of the junk on the table is theirs, anyway, right? YOU wouldn't pile stuff on there.) and issue The Ultimatum: "The dining table will be cleared and set in 20 minutes or no dinner tonight." And mean it. Trust me, it works, but they have to know you mean it.

    Recipe #24822

    WE WANT PIZZA! A dish I made up one night when my kids wanted pizza but we didn't have time. If you're really cheesy people, you can add more than the 1/2 cup I use.

    Recipe #24984

    After we got married, I started to develop my cooking skills not only to impress my husband, but also so we wouldn't die of Hamburger Helper poisoning. I was very newly married, in a new town, new state, trying to make new friends, dealing with my parents and my new in-laws, who were upset that we had eloped. We had thought we were saving everyone the hassle of traveling to an out-of-state wedding. Besides, I had never liked being the center of attention, so the idea of a wedding with EVERYONE that our families knew didn't hold any appeal for me. Little did I know that the wedding is more for the family than for the bride and groom. They were ticked. But, 16 years later, they've gotten over it -- mostly. Anyway, we were living in a one-bedroom apartment which my husband had rented several months prior, when he had moved from Pennsylvania to Indiana for his first job after college. We had just purchased a car for me to drive: a 1976 Camaro for $800, so you can imagine the condition. It was metallic powder blue -- and rust. Still it was fun to drive, and it was the closest I ever came to being mistaken for someone who was cool. Anyways, I knew how to cook, but having been a student at a college where cooking in your dormitory room was punishible by death, I hadn't done a lot of cooking for several years, except for weekends at home. Our kitchen was still a "bachelor's kitchen" though admittedly it was better stocked than I've seen in the homes of some people who have been married for years. This was made with staple ingredients and cooking equipment that my husband already had on hand. According to my memory banks, which are spotty at best, this was my first completely original recipe. With this "Early Marriage" recipe, you can take the cheapest, toughest cut of beef you can find, and make it tender, rich, and scrumptious. I can remember making this with chuck roast that I bought for 88 cents per pound, but that was 1986. Ah, memories.

    Recipe #27191

    Not only can you make this meatloaf without heating up your oven (and kitchen) but it also COOKS IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES.

    Recipe #27108

    Recipes are an illusion. Gourmet Cooking doubly so. At least that's my story for now. There are no amounts for this recipe, thus the illusion. Quantities are constantly in flux when I prepare this for my family, depending on how much garlic I have, how many olives I feel like chopping, whether I remembered to buy Parmesan cheese yesterday, and what shoes I'm wearing. Not too long after we married, my husband and I really got into watching "The Frugal Gourmet" on PBS. On one of the first shows we watched, Jeff Smith prepared this dish. I practically freaked out trying to write this down, since I had not yet learned my laid-back, pinch o' this, handful o' that way of cooking. He was just tossing things in the pan! How can you COOK like that? (Just fine, thankyouverymuch) At that time I was trying to make myself into a gourmet cook, so I bought the whole green olives and pitted them myself. I bought the wedge of Parmigiano-Reggiano that played havoc with the week's grocery money, grating it over the top, with my own freshly Band-Aid-ed fingers, just before serving. I got over it. Nowadays, I just have fun in the kitchen, and we manage to eat pretty well, gourmet cook or no. So, here it is, the way I make it now. More or less.
