Mexican Lasagna


adapted from Rachael Ray


3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 pounds ground meat of choice

2 Tablespoons chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

½ red onion, chopped

1 14-oz can stewed tomatoes (or fire-roasted or just chop up some fresh)

1 cup medium heat taco sauce

1 cup frozen corn kernels (or ½ can)


8 8-inch flour tortillas

2 ½ cups shredded cheddar (or pepper jack cheese or whatever you have)


Preheat the oven to 425.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil. Add ground meat and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, taco sauce, black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through, 2 to 3 minutes then season with salt, to your taste.

Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining olive oil, about 1 Tablespoon. Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla, cheese. Bake lasagna 12-15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly.

In a large greased casserole mix the soups together the olives, pimentos and the sauteed mixture.   Add the chicken.   Cook spaghetti in the broth that you saved until done.   Add spaghetti and pieces of chicken.   Leave it a little soupy as some of the broth will cook out of it !   Cover top with slices of American cheese.   Bake at 350 for 30 min or until cheese is melted and top is bubbly!   Good with salad and hot rolls or garlic bread!

1 Pork Tenderloin

2 teas salt

1/2 teas black pepper

1 tbl olive oil

1 tbl butter

2 minced garlic cloves

1 cup crumbled corn bread

1 teas finely chopped sage

salt & pepper

2 tbl dijon mustard



Preheat oven to 425*. Pat pork dry & sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Heat oil in a 10’ skillet over high heat until hot, but not smoking. Brown pork, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.

Transfer pork to an oiled, shallow baking pan.


Add butter to skillet and cook garlic over moderate heat, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove pan from heat and stir in cornbread crumbs, sage, salt & pepper. Stir well, coating crumbs evenly with butter and spice mixture.


With your hands, spread mustard over tenderloin and pat half of seasoned crumbs onto mustard. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over the top. Try to pack as much on the tenderloin as you can.


Roast in middle of oven until thermometer inserted diagonally 2 inches into meat reads 140*. (10-15 minutes)


Check after 10 minutes; if crumbs are too dark, tent loosely with foil and continue cooking until meat reaches the correct temperature.


When meat is correct temperature, transfer to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil, and let stand 10 minutes to continue cooking.

Slowly add 1/2 cup of broth to risotto and stir until completely absorbed. Repeat this step until 4 cups of broth have been added.

Rice A Roni Dinner


Your favorite box of Rice a Roni

Everything you need to make the rice a roni

1 pound hamburger meat.

1 onion

½ bag frozen pees and carrots

Garlic salt



Chop up your onion, place in your warm skillet. (You may need oil it depends on your skillet mine don’t. The hamburger give enough grease on mine.) Add your meat brown. Drain off your meat, saving a little grease for the rice. (if you don’t save the grease then you will have to add the butter. I never add the butter I just use the grease from the meat.) brown your rice for a few min. put your meat back in the pan. Add the water and frozen veggies. Let cook down 5-10 min check it to see if you need more water. Once done EAT!



Help Full Tip: This one was just done one day when all I had was hamburger meat and needed to make a fast dinner so we tried it and liked it. It goes off of another recipe I do.  Enjoy! And Have fun!

Pasta With Italian Sausage



2 Tbsp Olive oil

1 Lb Italian sausage (your favorite kind) remove the skin

1 onion, chopped

2 bell peppers chopped (pick two different colors red, green, yellow, orange)

2 Cans stewed tomatoes (the recipe calls for it but I never use it)

1 Sm Can tomato sauce(I just use a jar of spaghetti sauce)

1 Tbsp Italian seasoning(I always end up putting more{ too taste})

2 Clv of garlic minced(I use more{to tasted} and I use a garlic press)
salt and pepper to taste

pasta of your choice



sauté onions peppers and garlic in oil, add sausage until it looks about done and then add the reaming ingredients except pasta. Allow to simmer. (it says on hour{but I never let it sit that long, I let it sit until the pasta is done boiling}) cook pasta. Drain and combine with sauce.


Help Full Tip: As you read you can see that I changed this recipe a lot. I do that a lot. I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if you have any questions. Oh yeah both ways are great I suggest trying it the original way, then trying it (your way add and take out what ever you want; you may want to add olives or more peppers) then try it my way if you would like.

Sweet and Sour Turkey (or Chicken)

1 can (2 lb.) pineapple chunks or tidbits in juice (will use juice later in recipe)

1/3 c. vinegar

1/4 c. brown sugar

2 T. cornstarch

1T. soy sauce

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2 c. diced cooked turkey (or chicken)

1 green pepper cut into small thin strips

1 small onion, thinly sliced


Combine 1 c. pineapple juice, vinegar, brown sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, and salt over low heat until thick, stirring constantly.  Add turkey, green peppers, and onion and heat until all is warm.  Serve over rice.


Turkey Chowder

2 T. butter

2 T. flour

2 c. milk

2 c. velveeta (you can also use shredded cheese, but it doesn't melt as smoothly)

2 c. cooked, cubed turkey or chicken

1 c. cubed potatoes (I just use a 16 oz. frozen bag of O'Brien hashbrown potatoes with onions and peppers)

1 16 oz. frozen bag of veggies (peas and carrots are good - I usually just use mixed veggies)

1 tsp. instant chicken bouillion

2 tsp. instant minced onion

pepper to taste


Melt butter, add flour and stir in milk.  Cook until thick.  Add cheese until melted.  Add all other ingredients.


Kim's Sheperd's Pie

1 lb. ground beef

1 pkg. dry onion soup mix

1 16 oz. pkg. any frozen veggies (I like mixed veggies)  You can also use a couple of cans of canned veggies if you'd like.

about 6-8 c. mashed potatoes

shredded cheese


Brown and drain the ground beef.  In the skillet, add the dry onion soup mix and add about 1/2-1 cup water and cook until water is mostly gone.  Either cook frozen veggies or use canned.  Cook mashed potatoes or make instant.  In a 9 x 13 pan, layer the beef/onion soup mixture, then the cooked veggies, then the mashed potatoes.  Sprinkle cheese on top and heat @ 350 until warmed through and cheese is melted.  I usually sprinkle parsley or Mrs. Dash on top.

Mexican Beef and Noodles


1 pound medium egg noodles

1 ½ pounds ground beef

1 jar (12 ounces) salsa

1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce with mushrooms

1 can (3.8 ounces) sliced black olives

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese


In a 6-quart soup pot, cook the noodles according to the package directions; drain, rinse, drain again and set aside in the colander.  In the same pot, brown the beef over high heat for 5-7 minutes, or until no pink remains.  Stir in the salsa, spaghetti sauce and olives, then return the noodles to the pot.  Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring, until thoroughly combined and heated through.  Top with the cheese and serve.


Note:  This is the perfect dish to make ahead and freeze. 

This is one of my favorites, and it really does freeze well!

Quick Chicken (or Turkey) and Dumplings

3 c. milk

1 16. oz bag frozen veggies (I usually do mixed veggies)

2 c. cut-up cooked chicken or turkey

2 cans (10 3/4 oz each) condensed cream of chicken soup

2 c. Bisquick

2/3 c. milk

Paprika or Parsley, if desired

Heat the 3 c. milk, the veggies, chicken and soup to boiling in large saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Stir Bisquick and 2/3 c. milk until soft dough forms.  Drop dough by spoonfuls onto chicken mixture.  Sprinkle with paprike or chopped parsley, if desired.  Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes.  Cover and cook 10 minutes longer.  Save a lot of fat calories by using skim milk, Reduced Fat Bisquick, and reduced fat cream of chicken soup.

I always stock up on turkeys at Thanksgiving when they're ridiculously cheap, then put them in the deep freeze and cook them throughout the year.  When I cook one, I cut up the leftovers into bite-sized pieces and freeze 2 cup servings in individual quart freezer bags.  So when I have a recipe like this, the turkey just needs to be microwaved for a couple of minutes and it's ready to go.  :)
