Bacon Cheeseburger Dip January 10, 2014

1389384272121

We loved the Cheeseburger soup, (and you did too!) so I decided to go one step further and make a dip out of it. I found a recipe on Pinterest and I changed it up a little bit, once again, to make a delicious version we all loved. We couldn’t stop eating it! We were making the dip and Nachos, and we got filled up on the dip before we even got the Nachos in the oven! We think this dip is perfect for Sunday’s watching football and a perfect appetizer for parties!

1 1/2LB Ground Beef

1 1/2 Onion, Diced

1/2 Cup Milk

Chicken Parmesan December 30, 2013

20131119_191248

Chicken Parm is a super simple and really delicious meal. If you’ve already made your sauce, you’re halfway there! Many times I have a ton of sauce left over and I always freeze it. Then I can keep it for long periods of time and not over-sauce my husband. He’s not a huge fan of pasta so I have to figure out ways to switch it up and pace myself because I could totally eat sauce and pasta every day. This week, I chose to make chicken parm with my leftover sauce. I have never made it for my husband so I knew he would love it and enjoy not having the same old thing. My best friend was more than willing to join us for this dinner, thankfully she shares my love of food, unlike my husband, so we can bond over calories. She’s great because she always helps me cook and clean and it’s definitely always nice to have some company in the kitchen. Back to the chicken, I also enjoy having Veal Parmesan, which can be easily switched out in this recipe. There are very few steps and regardless which way you go the end result is fantastic. Good luck!

Homemade Meat Sauce

I grew up in an Italian family who owned a restaurant and the staple of most of our dinners was tomato sauce. I think I have had store bought sauce once in my life as a guest in someone’s home. Honestly, I wouldn’t be shocked if there was meat sauce running through my veins instead of blood. The first time I ever made sauce, I didn’t glance at a recipe or even ask anybody how to do it. I made it just like I watched my grandmother, grandfather, and mother make for years. I hope everybody takes the extra few steps to make homemade sauce for meals instead of store bought sauce, because it really does make a huge difference and it doesn’t take very long. I have to say though, It’s not 100 percent homemade because I do start with canned sauce and add my own flavors and spices. Some people may not consider it homemade, but I do because it’s not straight from a jar. I guess you could call it cheating! I love this sauce, every time my mother or I makes it I always have to grab a bowl of it and eat it like soup! It’s so flavorful and perfect for any type of pasta. Of course you can omit the meats if you want plain sauce and many people enjoy peppers or other types of meat in their sauce. This is how my family loves it, but feel free to spice it up with your own favorite ingredients as well!

 

 Ingredients:

1LB Ground Beef
