Instapot Taco Casserole

The other night I took out some ground beef to thaw with the intention of making meatloaf for dinner.  I obviously didn’t take it out in time because it was still partially frozen when it came time to make dinner.

Luckily I was able to cut off a chunk/pound of the ground beef to make this casserole and let the rest continue to thaw.

This recipe is a very flavourful casserole that was quick to make using my Instapot!

Polymer Clay on Mugs #1- Minnie Mouse

Almost all of the birthdays in our family come in February and March, which means after a few weeks of recuperating from Christmas I need to get back in the game figuring out what I want to make everyone for their birthdays!

I saw a whole bunch of mugs embellished with polymer clay on Pinterest and first wondered if the polymer clay would stick once cooked onto the mug and two what I could add to the mugs for each person.

This is the first of the 3 or 4 mugs I am making for birthday gifts.  I got all my mugs at the dollar store and already have a stash of polymer clay, so this gifts requires nothing else from me other than creativity!

Note: I am still deciding if they need a coat of varethane to give them a bit of shine or not lol!

Cream of Broccoli & Asiago Soup

Although we had to postpone our visit again due to weather to the coming weekend, I still made another pot of soup for when Kim and family were coming up last weekend.  I did freeze it, well most of it because Chris wanted a bowl lol, so that I would still have it to simply reheat for this weekend’s visit because once I told Kim what kind of soup I had made, her response was a resounding Yummmmmmm lol! Below is the recipe for this soup… if you love broccoli cheese soup, this is definitely a recipe you will want to try!

Tuscan Garlic Chicken with Sundried Tomatoes and Spinach

A very long title for what is really a simple recipe to make… and one that not only passes the “chocolate milk test” with Chris, but also brings up the danger of both Chris and Dillon actually licking their empty plates lol!

I prepped my veggies, the flour mixture and cut the chicken breasts while they were still partially frozen (because they cut easier) in the morning to make dinner time just that little bit faster and easier!

Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

The only description fitting for these cookies is OMG… and I do not throw that “phrase” out very often…. but these cookies definitely fall into that category!  They are soft and chewy in the middle with a deliciously chocolate taste.  Grab yourself a big glass of milk and enjoy a batch of these awesome cookies!

Oven Baked Sandwiches

When I made the Cream of Chicken soup last weekend Chris asked me if I was going to make some grilled cheese to go with it for dinner.  I don’t know about you, but making grilled cheese in the frying pan for more than 2 people is a pain and you can’t usually all eat together.  I told him… sort of lol.

I decided to make some ham and cheese, and turkey and cheese, sandwiches in the oven using hamburger buns instead of bread and adding a bit to the sandwiches….why go halfway lol? Below is how I made these sandwiches… and let me say that Dillon ended up eating 5 of the 8 sandwiches!!!! They may not take very good pictures but they sure tasted great!

Cream of Chicken Soup

The kids were supposed to come up last weekend, but due to a severe weather warning we put it off to the coming weekend.  I had planned on making a pot of soup for lunch when they came up. Chris insisted that I could still make the pot of soup…. for him lol. Well, I did end up making the soup and we did have it for lunch…. and dinner that day.  Made for an easy dinner day and everyone had some nice hot homemade soup in their bellies to wait out the storm!
