    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. Print Ziti Taco Bake Ingredients 3/4 bag s ziti noodles, 1 lb of ground beef 1 pkg taco seasoning 1 c water 1/2 pkg cream cheese 1 1/2 c shredded cheese mexican mix Instructions Boil pasta until just cooked.

    Bubble & Squeak

    You know the sound of bubbling and squeaking? Well, this cabbage and potatoes cooking in a skillet makes THAT noise. Hence the name. “Bubble and squeak is a traditional British breakfast made from boiled potatoes and cabbage. In modern times it is a dish made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. … The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling andsqueaking sounds during the cooking process.” Somewhat the same, but this is my personal version because, well, it just tastes great! It’s also great as a side if you just cook the vegetables in some oil or in bacon grease if you want to add bacon to…

    Chicken Fried???

    Born in Texas, relocated to Washington state, back to Texas, then off to the Pacific Northwest for a year, this gal knows the difference between Southern cooking and what I call “the norm.” You see, Southerners grown up on things like pimento cheese, chicken fried steak (an oxymoron if you ask me), cornbread and buttermilk (in a glass-together!), fried okra, hush puppies and tons of Tex Mex food. “The norm” grows up on salisbury steak with onions, spaghetti and meatballs, beef barley soup and not much, if any, Tex Mex food. So, when a Southerner cooks chicken fried steak, well….it’s not chicken at all. That would be chicken fried chicken.…

    Cowgirl Stew

    I’ve been making this for so many years I could actually make it blindfolded! I used Ranch Style Beans in it, but I’ve found some parts of the U.S. don’t have that particular brand like we do in the South, so just use Chili Beans, and don’t drain them. You can also use fresh, frozen or canned veggies of your choice. It’s an excellent way to clean out the fridge if you have some ground beef. Print Cowgirl Stew Ingredients 2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil 2 pounds ground beef 3 cups water 1 16 oz. package frozen corn 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes 1 15 oz. can ranch-style…
