A few weeks ago I shared one of my new favorite recipes, Sausage Cheese Puffs. I absolutely love them- they are so easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. As I was

I received a copy from her publisher and immediately started thumbing through it. Normally I find one or two recipes that I want to try from a cookbook, but I found over 20 (at least) recipes that I want to try. I could make dinner from this cookbook every weeknight for a month! All the recipes are very straight forward and easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand. My favorite thing about the book is that there is a photograph of every recipe. I love to see what my meal is going to look like.
After much deliberation, I finally decided on Mama's Spaghetti as the first meal to try. I love spaghetti but I haven't found "the recipe" yet. Well, I think this is it! Chicken Legs is not a spaghetti fan and loved this recipe. The sauce isn't runny like some spaghetti sauces tend to be. It was the perfect meat sauce. It smelled wonderful and didn't take any time to make. I believe this will be our "go to" recipe from this point forward.
I have SO many recipes that I want to try in the near future. I already have the Chili con Carne, Cheeseburge Pie, Croque Monsieur and Buttermilk Pie on my menu! There are really too many recipes to name. This might turn out to be one of my favorite cookbooks! Add this cookbook to your Christmas Wish List!

Burgers are great tailgating food, but sometimes it isn't convienent to grill burgers. Maybe you don't have a grill to tote to the parking lot, or you just don't want to deal with the hassle of it all. We've grilled burgers twice this year, and it is a lot of work. This recipe will satisfy your burger craving without the grill. Simply mix up the hamburger meat, roll it up in some refrigerated pizza dough and bake. Couldn't be simpler or tastier!!

Crock-pot meals are some of my favorite weeknight meals. They are quick, easy and ready when I get home from work. This recipe is no exception. It requires minimal prep work (browning the pork) and makes a great dinner. I served the BBQ pork with our favorite Cheesy Potato Casserole. I think some cheesy grits would be good too. This makes a lot of pork, but luckily it is good reheated the next day. Try it on a sandwich bun for lunch!

I am always on the lookout for a great Mexican dish to make at home. I usually make enchillidas, so I was interested in making this casserole to change up our usual Mexican night.
This casserole reminded me a lot of King Ranch Chicken but with ground beef. This was quick and easy to put together. I cooked my ground beef the night before and just mixed everything up when I got home from work. This is a very hearty and filling dish. It is also great reheated the next day. I think this would be a great dish to serve at a potluck dinner or even a tailgate party.

Few things scream "football food" like Rotel Dip. It has been staple at our house during football season for as long as I can remember. I absolutely love the warm spicy cheesy goodness! Be warned, this queso is highly addictive. I can make a meal out of it on a Saturday. You can jazz the queso up with some hamburger or sausage, but it is hard to beat the original with just Velveeta & Rotel.
