Stuffing Meatloaf

Stuffing Meatloaf

Meatloaf is an American classic, and is something that many people list as a comfort food.  In our household, meatloaf is something that’s reserved for Fall and Winter meals when I don’t mind turning on the oven.  This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is different from our previous meatloaf recipe.  This version gets the majority of the seasoning from a package of corn bread stuffing mix that’s used as the breading in the meatloaf.      This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is easy to prepare, and goes great with cauliflower mashed potatoes and garlic green beans.

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole is simple to assemble and gets dinner into the oven, and onto the table, without much fuss.    The dish contains only 3 ingredients,  but tastes like you worked much harder at getting it onto the table.  Like my sheet pan dinners, once this dish is assembled, it goes into the oven where it bakes for about 45 minutes.  That allows you to help the kids with homework, or tend to whatever needs your attention, while dinner takes care of itself. 

Italian Style Tilapia

Tilapia del Estilo Italiano

Italian Style Tilapia is another sheet pan dinner, but in my case, I prepare it in a 9X13 inch pan.  This recipe is very simple.  The ingredients are layered in a prepared baking pan before being placed in the oven and baked.  The best part is that the Tilapia is baked from the frozen state, so it’s a great dish if you’ve forgotten to thaw the meat for dinner.   Italian style tilapia practically prepares itself.

Baked Pork Chops Puttanesca

Baked Pork Chops Puttanesca

Pork Chops Puttanesca is another one of those simple meals that practically cook themselves in a large baking dish.   The ingredients can be combined the night before and the pork chops allowed to marinate in the tomatoes, herbs, and spices.  This helps your Pork Chops Puttanesca to be more tender.    It’s a simple and delicious meal that’s perfect for a busy weeknight.

Perfect Lamb Chop

Perfect Lamb Chops

Lamb chops marinated in Pinot Noir and paired with the piney flavor of rosemary and the heat from garlic, are a wonderful meat entree  for any night.  Moist and tender and loaded with flavor, these Perfect Lamb Chops were the perfect accompaniment to a vegetable side and a salad.  You’re going to want to try this recipe, and once you do, you’ll add it to your menu rotation. 

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

These chicken enchiladas are easy to make because they start with canned chicken, but don’t let that humble beginning fool you.  These are delicious, creamy, and certain to become a family favorite.  In fact, my family requests this version more often than they request regular chicken enchiladas. 

Chicken and Dumplings from Food Storage

Nothing says comfort food like chicken and dumplings.  This version which begins with canned chicken, cream of celery, or cream of mushroom soup, canned mixed vegetables, and canned milk simplifies the process significantly.  This recipe has chicken and dumplings ready to serve in about a half an hour.  Simple and delicious, this recipe will put chicken and dumplings back on the weeknight menu. 

Spaghetti Bolognese with Mushrooms

Spaghetti Bolognese with Mushrooms

Who doesn’t love spaghetti?   This recipe for Spaghetti Bolognese with Mushrooms is a 30 days of cans twist on the recipe.  This version is shelf stable, simple to prepare, and delicious, too.  I love to add mushrooms to spaghetti sauce.  They seem to make simple canned, or jarred, sauce into something special.   We eat spaghetti often in my household, and this recipe is one of our favorites for a busy weeknight.
