    Good Ole Fashioned Casserole-Keto Style

    This recipe takes me back to when I was 10. I don’t really know why, but I can imagine my mom making a casserole using a can of cream of something soup, ground beef and canned green beans. This recipe is so easy to make-no soup cans here. To make it keto, cream cheese, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses and whipping cream are used. You will need an oven-proof skillet, since it goes from stovetop to oven. Otherwise, pour the mixture into a casserole dish and bake it. It serves 8, and each portion is 4 net gr carbs! All you need is a yummy, crunchy salad, and dinner is ready.…

    Longhorn Steakhouse Parmesan Crusted Chicken Copy Kat Recipe

    I live in Texas, okay. That means that steakhouses are on every corner, and LongHorn Steakhouse is one of the best. You probably thought I’d be sharing a steak recipe, but actually it’s a chicken dish that is wonderful. It’s called Parmesan Crusted Chicken-grilled chicken topped with a creamy parmesan cream sauce. What’s not to love about that?! Click HERE to see the original “Copy Kat” version (including a video) that shows how to make it at home. That’s what I love about the Copy Kat site because I truly hate going out to eat-would rather make it at home, but there are a lot of great dishes I want…

    Salisbury Steak

    This is a pretty straight-forward American recipe that most people have either had at Luby’s or at home made by their mom or grandma.

    Good Meatloaf

    Some people love it, some hate it. It’s okay, not life-altering. Some people only like it with mayo on a sandwich cold the next day. This is a good meatloaf.

    Zita Taco Bake

    Talk about an easy and quick kid-approved dinner! It tastes like taco because of the packet of taco seasoning, sort of like mac-n-cheese because of the pasta and cheese, and is so easy to make. I got the original recipe from Just A Pinch HERE. I renamed it and kept the recipe the same and know you will love it as much as I do.

    Shortcut Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas

    I love this easy recipe because it begins with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, but when you get through with it, the taste is remarkable, and it looks very pretty if you garnish it with just a few cherry or grape tomatoes and fresh cilantro or parsley, if you’d like. Sometimes, as in my photo, I add red bell peppers or green to the chicken mixture too. The honey and lime add that sweet/acidic balance that makes a dish extra good. I think you’ll love it like we do. Print Shortcut Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas Ingredients 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, taken off the bone and shredded with a fork 2 T…

    Tamale Workshop Recipes

    I took a Tamale-Making class at our local Central Market with a few work friends. Our teacher was a Tamale EXPERT, Nettie Lopez. She and her family have been making, not only tamales, but beans, flan, guacamole and other authentic Mexican dishes for years and years-the recipes were passed down over the generations. How lucky were we to actually get her recipes, and I’m sharing them with you! (I apologize in advance for not putting the individual recipes on cards to print-working on that to have available in this post soon) Tamale Workshop Nettie Lopez, Central Market Cooking School Tamales Ingredients: 2 cups masa harina (corn flour) 2 cups reserved…

    Tex Mex Quesadilla Burger

    I always like doing things the non-traditional way, and this is no exception. Made with a flour tortilla instead of a bun, this burger is so popular among my friends and one of the most requested cook-out burgers. Who knew? I created it when attempting to win the Saucy Mama contest. It just goes to show that, win or lose, it’s always a good thing to try. One of the best burgers came out of this contest entry. Of course, you can always substitute ingredients-instead of making the salsa, you can use prepared salsa. Instead of roasting poblano peppers yourself, buy the canned mild green chiles, and cook the burgers…
