I looked everywhere for an easy baked spaghetti that did NOT use mushrooms or cream of mushroom soup (husband is allergic). I am happy to say I found it. You could add mushrooms, green pepper, olives, etc. to this dish for added variety, but I like it just the way it is! This makes a great family meal...just add a tossed salad and some garlic bread, and dinner is ready in about an hour.
When a coworker told me about these pork chops, I knew I had to try them. I mean it just doesn't get any easier and for someone like me, with a full-time career AND a full-time job as Mommy, I rely on easy recipes to make sure the family gets fed! The recipe just called for the chops and the soup mix but I added the onions for extra flavor. They caramelize so nicely and really complement the flavor of the soup. These pork chops are so tasty and tender you only need a fork. Enjoy!
Back when I was "Beachin'" this was probably one of my favorite recipes. Very easy to make and such a nice change from a piece of meat and veggies. This is Phase 1 appropriate, and tastes very good topped with shredded 2% cheddar, a dollop of plain yogurt, and avocado slices. Even non-dieters will enjoy this thick and hearty soup.
NOTE: To stay true to South Beach be sure and buy canned kidney beans with no added sugar and taco seasoning that is South Beach approved. I used Old El Paso.
I am not usually one for cooked carrots, so I am not sure what possessed me to make these, but I am glad I did. The sauce is sweet and tangy, and the perfect accompaniment to the carrots. This recipe is courtesy of the Junior Leage of Little Rock. It serves 2 nicely, but you can easily double for more.
This lovely dish is very tasty and so easy to prepare. Add some roasted asparagus, crusty rolls, a bottle of wine and some soft candlight, and you've got the perfect romantic dinner for two. You can easily double or triple the recipe for a dinner party.
There are probably a thousand different ways to make a hot chicken salad casserole, but this is, in my opinion, one of the tastiest and simplest. This recipe comes from "Miss Daisy" King, a Nashville cooking legend who made this recipe and many others famous at her "Miss Daisy's Tearoom" in Franklin, Tennessee. I like to serve this for supper with fresh fruit, hot rolls and lemon icebox pie for dessert.
Another favorite from the now closed "Miss Daisy's Tearoom" in Franklin, Tennessee. This is the quintessential southern dessert. Her recipe varies slightly from the others on this site, and it's so good I just had to share it. Cook time is chill time.
Whenever I prepare dinner for a friend (new baby, death in family, etc.), I always include this yummy pie, along with a carton of Cool Whip. It's the perfect ending to any meal. (Prep time does not include chilling).
