Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls were something that I created one evening when we were trying to decide what to eat.  I don’t really like to turn on the oven during the summer months, and I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods.  It’s not for health reasons.  It’s because it seems so time consuming, and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove while the egg rolls fried.  I really wanted to make egg rolls, so I decided to try making these Italian egg rolls with the air fryer.  The result was delicious, though the recipe did require some experimentation […]

Carrot Hot Dogs (Pressure Cooker and Grill)

Carrot Hot Dogs

Carrot Hot Dogs are something that our friends have repeatedly asked if we have tried during our 30 days of vegan.  To be honest, we had never heard of the carrot hot dog, so it wasn’t something we had planned to prepare.  We had planned to grill some portabello mushrooms to use in place of burgers, but carrot hot dogs weren’t on our radar.  After the fifth or sixth time that someone asked, we decided we needed to plan a weekend barbecue and serve carrot hot dogs. There was just one problem.  I had no idea what spices were used […]

Basic Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Have you ever reached into the fridge to get barbecue sauce only to discover that there isn’t any?  You have a few choices in this situation. 

Sue Chef’s Alfredo Sauce

This is a simple and fool proof recipe for Alfredo sauce that’s rich and creamy.  Sue Chef and Baker’s Man created it one day when we had no jars of Alfredo Sauce in the house.  This recipe creates a quick and delicious sauce, and once you’ve made this homemade version, you will never buy the Alfredo sauce in jars again.  Everyone thinks that Alfredo sauce goes best with fettuccine.  It’s quite good that way, and our photos show it served with fettuccine, but we believe that Sue Chef’s Alfredo Sauce is best served over a pasta that really holds onto […]

Sum Gum

Sum Gum

Sum Gum is a simple and delicious combination of ground beef, green beans, rice, and Asian inspired seasonings, and it’s a perfect simple supper.    The best part is that it can all be prepared in one skillet, as long as you have some leftover rice in the refrigerator.  I love meals that don’t make a big mess, and they’re a real winner when my family likes it.   This recipe definitely fit the bill.

Roasted Onion and Mushroom Burgers with Potatoes

Roasted Onion and Mushroom Burgers with Potatoes is a one dish meal that gets a family friendly dinner on the table in no time.  It’s simple, delicious, and is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight.  I created this meal when my family requested burgers and roasted potatoes, but the burgers were still frozen, and my attention was needed in other places besides the kitchen.  

Corned Beef Hash with eggs

Corned Beef Hash

What do you do when you have leftover corned beef?  The answer is simple–make Corned Beef Hash.  I confess that we usually get our corned beef hash from a can, but it’s very easy to prepare from scratch, and it uses up St. Patrick’s Day leftovers.  Once you try the homemade version, you may never go back to eating the canned stuff.

Southwest cheesebuger pie

Southwest Cheeseburger Pie

A few decades ago, Bisquick introduced the impossible pie recipe.  The recipe was so named because a batter was poured into a pie plate and made a pie.  It was called “impossible” because the pies were made without a crust.  I have an old cookbook that belonged to my mother that contains a collection of these “impossible pies.”  Basically, these recipes require you to fill a pan with whatever savory food items you choose.  The filling is then topped with a batter made from Bisquick, milk, and eggs and baked in a 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes […]
