Love That Quinoa Burger!

QUINOA BURGER So yummy!  If you want a change of pace that’s meat-free, yet full of protein, fiber, and very filling…this might be for you. I like it with Tzatziki on top (my recipe is in this post), or  a little “fry sauce” (what some drive-ins call that wonderful mayo/ketchup combo), and with a thick…

So familiar!

COMPANY CHICKEN Please don’t judge the recipe by the photo!  (I still didn’t know what I was doing with my camera…one of these days I’ll make it again and we’ll make prettier!).  This is such a good recipe – it’s been in every hometown cookbook and continues to be a favorite. Sounds odd and weird…

Just another meatloaf recipe…ho hum. NOT.

Super-duper moist and flavorful – it’s my husbands favorite meatloaf EVER.  This was a half-hearted-throw-everything-in type meatloaf at the last minute for dinner but Hon raved about it so much I had to scramble to save a piece for…

Instead of the traditional bread crumb crust, I topped it with some shredded cheese. Prepare a wonderful, crunchy green salad and maybe a plate of whole-grain crackers for your family…

Elegant dinner – with very little fuss!

CHICKEN & MUSHROOM IN WHITE WINE If you want something that looks like you took forever making it – but didn’t – this is it.  It would be great for a dinner party or dinner in your pajamas. Try omitting the mushrooms and using broccoli – sounds good to me! ~~~~   Vegetable cooking spray…

Guaranteed to be a new family fave!

CHEESEBURGER PIE This is the basic recipe…use your imagination to make any ‘burger’ you like.  I topped mine with spicy ketchup and dill chips. How about a Cowboy Burger – pinto beans mixed into the meat part…BBQ sauce slathered under the cheese topping. Or some blue cheese crumbled in and roasted garlic.  Or feta cheese…
