Cheesy Taco dip with black beans

We went to a Memorial Day gathering yesterday. I was going to make Taco Salad but I found out another one of my friends had already committed to make a Taco Salad.  I decided to make a Taco Dip with Black Beans. It was delicious. Another tradition has been started. Cheesy Taco Dip with Black […]

Zucchini Ravioli

I love ravioli. Since I have been following the Paleo lifestyle ravioli is not on the menu. That is why I was fascinated when I saw zucchini ravioli. It wasn’t until I made it and tried it that I can now say that ravioli is back on my menu. I hope you enjoy this as […]

Queso con Carne

I’m wowing you with my Spanish today–not really! I wish I could speak Spanish; However, this dish speaks for itself. It is translated simply cheese with meat. This dip can be a light meal. Add a salad and you have all the food groups covered. You can also put this in the slow cooker and […]

Taco Pie

How about an easy breezy dish that will keep them coming back for more? This can be put together in 10 minutes and will cook in 20 minutes.  I do recommend that you pre-cook the pie crust before you fill it. Another great tip is to cook up Extra lean ground beef with taco seasoning […]

Championship Chili

Does everyone have Championship on their mind today?  Weren’t the Buckeyes over the top last night?  They did Ohio proud.  Well, even though my chili didn’t win a National Championship, it was the hit of the pregame party.  I changed it up just a little bit and I got the thumbs up from everyone who […]

Speedy Spaghetti and Meatballs

Sometimes you just need to use good products to cut the time it takes to make a family favorite.  One of the Butcher’s absolute favorite meals is spaghetti.  I decided to make him spaghetti and meatballs for dinner yesterday.  I decided at about 4:00 and I knew we would want to eat by 6:30.  No […]

Stuffed Peppers Ole

I am loving this hot weather and nothing says summer like stuffed peppers.  Last week we enjoyed a trip to Amish country.  We picked up the most beautiful green peppers.  They were huge and crisp.  The Butcher had brought home about 5 pounds of extra lean ground beef.  Before I even thought about it I […]

Inside Out Bacon Cheeseburgers

Happy Tuesday to you.  It has started to feel like Fall in Northeast Ohio.  I’m not complaining–just stating a fact.  Before I share a simple recipe I want to take a minute to thank all of you.  I have reached my goal weight of 115 pounds.  I feel like you are my accountability partners.  I […]

Luscious Lasagna

Hope everyone is having a great day.  We are definitely into the “comfort food” weather pattern.  The sun is shining, and that makes it better; however, I miss the warm weather already.  When I am cold I cook meals that will “stick to your bones”.    The Butcher doesn’t like too many noodles in his lasagna. […]

Peppers, Peppers Everywhere!

Last week when we were having such beautiful, sunny weather, (why does this seem like a fairy tale when I am looking out my window, seeing the rain, and hearing the wind howling?) the Butcher and I were heading home after work to rake the leaves.  I knew I had to make him a good […]
