Denver Omelet Pie Recipe

 

 The Denver omelet (also known as a Western omelet) is a classic breakfast full of flavor. Here I’ve turned it into a frittata pie with a crust made of artisan bread. It has all of the traditional Denver omelet ingredients, plus Swiss and Parmesan cheeses. It’s a great breakfast to […]

Scalloped Potatoes with Ham Recipe

 

 Scalloped potatoes have always been a favorite of mine, and as is with most foods, they are much better when made from scratch. The box just doesn’t cut it. I’ll bet you don’t know the secret ingredient to giving your scalloped potatoes that pop of flavor. It’s none other than […]

Irish Corned Beef Hash Recipe

 

 Corned beef hash is a great way to use St. Patrick’s day leftovers, but don’t wait until the holiday to try this version. Canned corned beef is readily available and works just as well as leftovers. Traditional corned beef hash is pretty basic and includes corned beef, potatoes, and onions, […]

Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

 

 Spaghetti sauce (or tomato gravy to my Italian friends) is a staple in most households. Rather than watching over the pot for a long, slow-cooked version on the stove, it’s just as easy to toss it all in the crockpot. You won’t need to worry about stirring or boilovers, and […]

Alfredo Chicken Bubble-Up Recipe

 

 Alfredo chicken is a perennial favorite main dish. This version turns it into an easy casserole using canned biscuits from the dairy case. They bake up golden brown on the bottom, yet become sort of a dumpling on top. It’s a fun combination of alfredo chicken and chicken & dumplings. […]

Pomegranate Oven BBQ Spareribs Recipe

 

 BBQ spareribs are a big favorite of mine. They are expensive at restaurants and usually disappointing. The barbecue afficionado will argue that they must be smoked low and slow on a wood-burning grill, but time and weather do not always permit cooking them the tried and true way. My oven […]

Sweet and spicy chicken gives your taste buds a kick.

Sweet Spicy Glazed Chicken Recipe

 

 Chicken is a good alternative to meat, but it can easily become boring and run-of-the-mill. This simple glaze requires only four ingredients, but the result will have your taste buds singing. It’s sweet, but not overly so, slightly spicy, and tangy for a nice change of pace. I buy leg […]

Easy Cowboy Chili with beans makes an inexpensive, filling meal.

Easy Cowboy Chili Recipe

 

 Chili purists will argue that adding beans is a definite no-no, and I actually prefer mine sans beans. However, adding beans not only helps stretch the meat, it also adds vegetable protein and fiber to the dish. Although I’ve used kidney and pinto beans here, feel free to use your […]
