Cheesy Potato Casserole

 Sometimes you just want comfort food. Cheese, potatoes, butter, sour cream....all baked together in one perfect dish.  Sure, it's not exactly health food, but it's not intended to be.  It's the dish you bring to potlucks and sick friends, the one you serve at home to take the edge of an otherwise bad day. The [...]

It seriously does not get ANY easier than this delicious, hearty split pea soup.  My family loves it so much that we have started buying whole spiral-cut hams on a regular basis just so we can make it more often!  It actually ends up being a pretty good value, though, since an eight pound ham will provide [...]

Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole

Chicken & rice casserole is one of our family staples, but in my quest to develop a whole binder full of no-cook freezer meals, I decided to take on the challenge of creating a freezer friendly version.  I'll be honest, it took a lot of trial and error to get it right, but the final [...]

Tomato Parmesan Chicken

Image

My family loves Italian-style food, especially Chicken Parmesan.  And while I love making them happy, what I don't love is the time, effort, and mess involved in making the traditional breaded-then-fried-then-baked version.  Not. Gonna. Happen.  Because, as you probably already know by now, I much prefer simple meals that whip up fast and can be frozen ahead [...]
