On Sundays, my grandmother would make Chicken with Egg Dumplings for the whole family. Now, I'm proud to carry on the tradition for my family. This recipe gives the home, cozy aromas while it simmers. This is one of my favorite tried-and-true recipes. I am so excited to share it with you!
Citrus-glazed meatball kabobs are a simple and delicious way to prepare meatballs. Make a double batch of meatballs and freeze the extra for a quick meal later. Simply use store-bought frozen meatballs if you're short on time. In this recipe, I cook the kabobs in the oven, but they are great for grilling too. The family will be happy to have these sweet and savory kabobs on the dinner table.
It's only a week until Thanksgiving, so I have begun my countdown check-list. I can officially check off all the top shelf dusting (this doesn't get done as often as it should, it was really dusty), I cleaned out my spice rack, and the guest room is ready. With all the prep for next week, I needed a quick and easy supper for tonight. I should call this recipe harvest hash because I made it with squash and potatoes I pulled from the garden over the weekend (before the snow fell). Butternut Squash and Red Potato Hash was the perfect ending to our busy day. Just crack and cook a few eggs on top and Ta Da! There is something so cozy about breakfast for dinner and this harvest breakner or maybe dinefast either way, this hash was no exception. Quick, easy, healthy comfort food, more check marks for me, this time off of my recipe check-list!
Grab yourself a Pilsner, and let's get dinner on the table in 15 minutes tonight! These open-faced sandwiches couldn't get any easier, and they are so delicious. The smell of these in the oven reminded me of things my German grandmother used to cook up. Spend a little less time in the kitchen tonight, and a little more time with family.
Since brown rice takes a while to cook, you can swap it for instant brown rice; or make enough to have two meals from one pot of rice. This recipe can make the meal or have it as a side. You can swap the rice for quinoa, bulgar, couscous, or barley. Balsamic Rice Salad has many options to swap around or improve upon. This recipe is more of a guild then a by the book recipe. Do with it as you like, share your changes below in the comments section!
I live in an area where the changes of the season never fail to surprise me. Seems like just days ago it was a warm and sunny, and the trees were full of beautiful autumn colors. Today it's cold, blustery, and snowy. It seems, for most people, on cold days like this they turn to a warm bowl of soup or stew. I, however, find comfort in a bowl of pasta. Grab your ugly sweatpants, you know the ones you wouldn't be caught dead in public with, but ones you can count on to keep you warm and cozy. Give yourself an extra serving of this penne with tomato bacon sauce.
Cauliflower Grape and Bacon Salad is a spin on one of our favorite deli-style broccoli salads. I personally believe bacon makes everything better, and kids' favorite vegetable is cauliflower. This salad gets gobbled right up in my house. This salad goes great on the side of any meal. Take it to your next get-together for an easy dish-to-pass.
Honey Lemon Garlic Pork Chops are a quick, easy, weeknight dinner. Serve them with a side of roasted veggies. This is a recipe you can count on to get rave reviews from your family.
It's easy to get caught up in the holiday buzz. We'd love to be able to give our children all the latest and greatest gifts. Personally, that's not an option for us. Most years, we've had to be frugal, and creative in our gift giving. These ideas aren't just for the holidays. You can use these ideas for any occasion.
This fudge recipe is so delicious! I was certain this idea would take a lot of experimenting; some trial and error; and a lot of bad batches but that just wasn't the case. I am so proud I nailed this the first attempt. It's easier than you think to make and tastes incredible! I couldn't wait to share this with you! I have included some step by step photos. It's only a few ingredients and a lot of stirring to get Chocolate Chip Coffee Fudge! This makes a great gift too!
I stumble through life as a mom of three on a tight budget. When I say stumble through life, I mean, stumble, fall on my face, get back up and then trip again. I'm flat broke and stumbling. I'm here in blog land to share all my money-saving tips. As well as, my frugal comfort food recipes.
