Amazingly Flavorful Low Fat Meatballs

If I were considerably younger I might consider calling these “Amaze-balls”, but I am far too old to be able to say that and not sound foolish. But, these meatballs are amazingly moist and flavorful and adaptable to a variety of cuisines. And they happen to be lower in fat. The recipe is based on …

BBQ London Broil in the Slow Cooker plus Tasty Tuedays Link Up

I managed to get a good deal on a London Broil (aka top round or flank steak), but didn’t want to go with my usual method of cooking it which is to marinade then cook on grill/broil until medium rare in the middle. This time I decided to cook it low and slow in the …

Mezetti – Beef and Noodle Skillet Meal

Here’s a great one skillet meal that’s been in the family for years. Hearty, beefy stick to your ribs meal that cooks up in about 45 minutes, most of it hands off time, making it perfect for a weeknight. I have no idea where the name Mezetti came from, I assume it’s the name of the person that …

10 Pie Recipes Perfect for Pi Day

Happy Pi Day! Yes, it is corny. My Math Professor husband hates it. But, I personally like pie, both sweet and savory. Graham cracker crust, puff pastry or flaky pie dough? Yup! I like them all. Unfortunately for me, I gave up sweets for Lent and today is Friday so no meat. But, I went through …

Baked Corned Beef and Colcannon

Last year I read about baking a corned beef brisket instead of the traditional method for boiling it, and I was intrigued. I picked up two on sale at the store yesterday and decided to try the baking method for dinner last night so I could be sure to get this blog written before St …

Beef Stroganoff

Here’s another Russian recipe in honor of the Winter Olympics in Soichi, Russia: Beef Stroganoff. I am not sure how I missed this recipe when I made up my lists for Weeknight Dinners and Favorite Mushroom Recipes. It might have had something to do with the fact that the boys won’t eat sour cream or mushrooms. But, it …

The 2014 Winter Olympics are upon us, and since they will be held in Soichi, Russia I thought it was time to pull out some Russian cuisine to get in the mood. Strawberries Romanoff might be delicious, but it is a little too cold in most of the country for that right now. Instead, I am …

Glazed All-Beef Meatloaf

I received three new cookbooks for Christmas, plus I bought one for myself on clearance ($3 – woohoo). The biggest and best was from Ma’am. The almost 900 page, Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook with 2,000 recipes! At first glance I had about 20 recipes I thought about making, then M suggested we have meatloaf on Tuesday night, …

Chicken Fricassee – Chicken Stewed in Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Some Chicken Fricassee recipes are fat laden chicken and gravy. This one is something entirely different, chicken breasts stewed in tomatoes and mushrooms. But that was the name on the recipe when I go it so I am sticking with it. We have been playing a lot of Super Mario in my house lately. Paper …

Mongolian Beef

I was cleaning up the Main Courses – Meat index page yesterday and realized I had prepared, photographed and edited the photo of Mongolian Beef, but somehow never posted about it. I got this from Pinterest (originally posted by Just a Taste), and it is supposed to be a knock off of a recipe from …

Beef and Bacon Tournedos

Beef and Bacon Tournedos was one of my Dad’s signature dishes. It wasn’t until recently that I found out it came from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook called His Turn to Cook. The title is a bit condescending in today’s day and age, but the recipes are wonderful. The section titled From the Hunter’s Bag …

Well, I am a few weeks late for Oktoberfest which is the end of September to the first weekend in October. You can save this recipe for Sauerbraten for next year, or make it up soon and have a delicious German feast. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that it takes 56 hours to make. …

Armenian Manti (Monti)

I originally saw this recipe back in December and promised myself I would make it since Jamie from I am not the Babysitter raved about it so much she put learning to make it on her “30 things to do before turning 30 list”. I do not have such a list, and my 30th birthday came and …

Chasen’s Chili and Cornbread

Chili can be a very controversial dish. Some people wouldn’t dream of putting beans in it, where as others will omit the meat entirely and make it vegetarian. Some want it scorching hot from the peppers put in, others prefer it mild. There are contests all over the place to determine the “best” chili. I am not going to …

Weeknight Meals

A college buddy recently asked on Facebook if her friends cooked dinner every night. Her husband is working some crazy hours lately and she is pretty much a single working mom on most nights.  She likes to serve healthy homemade meals to her kids, but she is getting a bit burned out. More than likely she …

Spaghetti Pie

Here’s a fun way to serve leftover spaghetti. Or, you can make the spaghetti specifically for the recipe.  It takes a little extra time than plain old spaghetti and meat sauce, but my son at least thinks it is fun to eat. And make. You might also like these posts Made It Loved It: GF …
