Double Chile Queso Dip

queso dip 062

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there. I saw this on facebook and had to share it! I want this sign so bad now I'm wondering where I can get one? This is one of my babies. He's kind of crazy. Really skiddish around some people and has the cutest under bite in the World. On Mother's Day we all just sat around and I ate queso dip. This queso dip I found in the latest edition of Food Network's magazine. Was kind of scared to try it at first because it called for 2 different ...

Taco Pie

tacopie 001

This is a pretty fun take on tacos. The next time you have taco night with your family, try making a taco pie instead. You take a can of crescent rolls and press them into a pie pan and then layer on the beef, cheese and tortilla chips.  I used the garlic butter crescent rolls instead of just the plain crescent rolls and I think the garlic flavor helped make this pie even better. Once the pie comes out you can top it with your favorite Taco toppings. I recommend taco sauce. We didn't have any in ...

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

I've been sick lately and haven't been in the mood to cook anything until tonight. Being sick around Christmas time sucks. I was supposed to go to my cousin's in Grand Forks, ND but I didn't, because I didn't want to get my whole entire family sick. They were having prime rib and my Mom said that it was fantastic when she got back on Christmas day. Hopefully getting sick around Christmas time doesn't become an annual thing..... This has been one of the best recipes on pinterest I've found in ...

Lasagna Skillet

  I have a new favorite recipe site. I've been pinning recipes like mad from I think it's a sister site of, because I see it linked on the bottom of theirs. You should check it out.. Oh yah, and the greatest part of that website is that they have nutrition info on there too. SCORE! Lasagna skillet takes less than 30 minutes to make. It's a lot faster than making the layered lasagna. The noodles cook in the skillet with the water and marinara sauce. There's ...

Bourbon Chicken

bourban chicken 014

One of my favorite things to get at the Asian restaurants in the mall is Orange Chicken. The Bourban chicken is good too, it kind of reminds me of Orange chicken in away.  The bourban chicken in those places are always deep fried and twice the calories. This recipe has half the fat and calories in it and the whole recipe comes together in no time. There's no bourban in the recipe but other ingredients in the recipe make up for that. If you don't like it spicy just cut back on the red pepper ...

Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

spaghetti and meatball soup 002

I just love soup. Can you tell? I think it actually helps with weight loss and I'm considering going on an all soup diet. I especially love soup when I see someone make over a classic dish like take for instant Enchiladas, Tacos, or this one: Spaghetti and Meatballs. Yum! What else are they going to think of next that hasn't been done before? Dessert soup? Pizza Soup? Burger soup? You can't go wrong with soup that's for sure. About a week ago my store had these mini meatballs on sale so I ...

Pizza Rollups


Sorry I haven't made anything in awhile.  It's been a multiple number of reasons. 1. Because I'm a camera snob. My little Olympus camera just doesn't compare to my Nikon. and 2. I haven't been finding very many new recipes to try lately. Pinterest seems to have all the same recipes posted over and over again. Have to go back to the old recipes books and Food Network again. :) This recipe is actually from pinterest. It's so good, the first time I didn't have a camera charged up to take the ...
