    My family's been making this tasty side dish for years, and I was surprised not to find something similar already here. Goes great with grilled meats, burgers, or sausages. Use any color of bell peppers you have, or a combo.

    Recipe #449786

    One of my son's favorites, I'm finally getting around to writing it down so he can make it, himself. It's important to choose a nice cut of beef, because the beef is essentially stir-fried, rather than slow cooked. I like to use brown cremini mushrooms in this, but button mushrooms will also work just fine. It's important to use low-sodium broth, to prevent the finished sauce from becoming too salty. Serve over noodles or rice.

    Recipe #444008

    English recipe traditionally served with sausages. Very good served with all types of poultry and game birds.

    Recipe #18620

    Killer jambalaya! No tomato in this one and consider yourself warned: careful with the peppers in the seasoning mix. I usually cut the various peppers to 1/4 of the listed amount. I use my food processor to chop the vegetables. Do them separately to get them the right size. Have all the ingredients prepped and ready before you begin cooking because if you don't pay attention, you'll burn it. Make every effort to use homemade stock or sodium-free stock. This is soooo good and sooo worth the effort.

    Recipe #72415

    Posted for my son. I've been making this for years. It's easy, very good, and makes good use of leftovers.

    Recipe #384624

    Easy weeknight dish, combining veges and pasta. Can be a side dish, or vegetarian entree (vegan if you omit the optional cheese) This dish goes together quickly, so have your veges prepped before you start.

    Recipe #357340

    I got this off a box of Velveeta Cheese when I saw it made on Good Morning America. The recipe is exact, i haven't changed it. I usually buy the large block of Velveeta cheese and store any unused cheese in ziploc bags, so I'm forever searching for the recipe. It's easy and fast. My family swears it tastes just like KFC! You can also put the Macaroni and Cheese in a greased casserole dish and make a topping out of 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz Crackers and 1 stick of melted butter. Combine and then sprinkle on top of casserole. Bake in 350 degree oven till top is golden brown.

    Recipe #280594

    This is a really versatile soup recipe. Add other veges in season, omit the sausage to make a vegetable soup. As written, it's hearty and satisfying.

    Recipe #379220

    A family favorite of ours, posted at my son's request. I'm not certain, but I think the recipe may originally have come from a Frugal Gourmet cookbook. A food processor really helps with all the chopping. We like it with crusty bread and a simple green salad. Editted to note: This is NOT a thick cream soup - it's brothy, with a light flavor of cheese.

    This is my attempt to copycat the canned Ranch-Style Beans. I want to keep track until I get it right. If you want to jump in and help I'd love the help!

    Recipe #325127

    Easy, tasty weeknight recipe. Adaptable to different types of meat; add veges or delete to suit your taste, or what you have on hand. I developed this "cook-and-drain" technique to avoid chow mein that was swimming in liquid. It also makes added thickeners unnecessary. I show varying amounts of noodles and cabbage - I enjoy a chow mein with lots of veges, but others in my family like the noodles. This recipe works well either way.

    Recipe #311895

    Another stupidly simple side dish made from pantry staples that my family asks for over and over. The savory combination of flavors goes well with many other foods. It can be made with freshly-cooked pasta or with leftover, cooked pasta that has no sauce on it. I've included options for some variations to create not-so-simple but extremely tasty side dishes or complete, one-dish meals by adding ingredients you probably have on hand.

    Recipe #241627

    This is a spicy and zesty dish. You may serve it over rice, or as a soup. This is great served with cornbread, or corn muffins and green onions.

    Recipe #64367

    This recipe was very popular back in my teenaged cast-party days, when my mom would make it for us. I recall getting the recipe from Mike Everheart's mom, I think. I love this stuff! I usually make a double or 1.5 recipe, and keep the extras at home for myself. ;) It's hard to believe how much folks are paying for these layered dips in the stores... it tastes better when you make your own!

    Recipe #27893

    Quick, healthy and delicious. Just pop the four ingredients into the Crock-Pot in the morning and you'll have a great-tasting meal for dinner. This would also be great for larger gatherings.

    Recipe #16687

    An easy, flexible weeknight recipe. Increase/decrease chili powder and chilies to suit your taste. Great with grated cheese or diced avocado.

    Recipe #301558

    A lighter coleslaw, with less mayo than many - The cilantro variation goes well with Mexican or Thai foods.

    Recipe #302155

    Great for kids and parties! I use chicken tenders rather than preparing the breasts. Prep time includes marinating time.

    Recipe #115987

    Really this is such an easy recipe I wasn't going to even bother posting it, I have been making this for years and when you can't barbecue outside this is the next best thing! --- Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce works really well or use your own favorite, I most always use my recipe#232433 and prepare the sauce a day ahead --- I did not list the amounts for the seasoned salt and garlic powder as I never measure but probably use about 2 teaspoons each for all the chicken pieces, I usually use about 2 cups sauce but a little more or less is fine -- boneless, skinless chicken breasts work well also but cooking time will need to be reduced, you will *love* this!

    Recipe #277207

    I love this seasoning mix and sometimes double it to get more crunch. It came from Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook with only two slight adaptations. I usually have to dry slices of bread in my oven & send them through the food processor to crumb, but I usually have all of these ingredients on hand.
