Easy Salisbury Steak

I remember as a kid getting those Salisbury Steak freezer meals and thinking they were oh so tasty. Now as an adult I’ve tried them and although they are edible I just cant see myself wasting the calories on them. I practice portion control and everything, but life is too short to avoid eating the food that I love and I’m a meat and potatoes type of girl. This recipe is super easy and what makes it even better is homemade gravy; you can use the pre-made stuff but it just doesn’t give the same flavor.

Hubby Style Burritos

So occasionally I allow my husband to take over in the kitchen; okay so maybe I shouldn’t say take over more like cook with supervision 🙂 I suffer from a little OCD so I tend to chase him around the kitchen cleaning up after him; fine fine caught again a lot OCD. I swear I used to be a lot worse, I really have gotten better since I became a wife and mama. Sometimes you just have to let things go because there are far better things to obsess over like spending time with those precious loving faces. Anyways lets get back to Josh and his scrumptious burritos. These are a little time consuming but they are so worth it. It’s really not an exact science, it’s more of a however you and your family like it but this will give you a general idea.

Easy-Peasy Meatballs

I don’t know any kid that doesn’t go gaga over spaghetti and meatballs. My step-son does this little jump up and down dance when he finds out that’s what I’m making for supper. Some meatballs, although very tasty, end up overpowering the sauce. I like my meatballs to compliment my sauce and these ones do just that. They are made up of very simple ingredients and really don’t take very long to cook at all, which is wonderful for those nights when you just don’t have very much time or energy to make supper.

Ranch Chicken

What can I say about this chicken other then yum yum yum!!! This is yet again another one of those meals that my family begs me for. I think what makes it so delicious and moist is that I bake it in a cast iron skillet. You could start it in a normal skillet and then transfer it to a greased baking dish but it just may not be the same. Well I’m going to keep this one extra short and sweet and get right to the meat of things 😉

Meatballs in Mashed Potato Cups

Many many years ago when my Great Grandma passed away my Aunt took it upon herself to go through her recipes and compile a cookbook to give to everyone in the family. There are many different recipes that I have tried or that I remembered from my childhood in that book but this one is my second favorite. My favorite is one my family lovingly called dodgers which is just native american fry bread, that was my addiction growing up.The first time I made this though I fell in love because of how simple and delicious it is. I of course have changed some things over the years like substituting real milk for reconstituted milk powder, but I also don’t know anyone anymore who really keeps this in their house. This is a big hit with kids and husbands too, my family often begs for it.
