I feel like most people have heard of green bean casserole by now. It’s been around as long as I can remember, and it’s a Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner staple for us. And who’s had it who doesn’t just love it, with its creamy veggies and crunchy onion topping?
These little fried ‘dumplings’ are an American ‘Chinese’ take out favorite. They’re stuffed with a mixture of cream cheese and flaky crab meat. Real or imitation meat both work just fine, depending on your inclination and your budget.
While we try to keep things ‘PG’ rated at best around these parts, occasionally (just occasionally, promise!) things may change. Like now.
Once upon a time, a quesadilla and pizza got together. They had a very lovely, love child. The Pizza-dilla.
And tummies and tastebuds rejoiced throughout the land and we all lived happily ever after!
Grocery shopping. I’m convinced you either love it or hate it. It’s either a necessary, but shoot-me-now chore, or you relish the hunt for the best bargains each week and sticking to your list and get off on coming in below budget. I’m one of those who falls firmly into the love it category. That being said, we make the big trek to Costco, followed by every store with a circular in a 5 mile radius, once a month and it takes pretty much all day. And that’s exhausting, considering kids are dragging there heels after store # 1, whining the whole way, and begging for this that and the other. We’re all tired and cranky by the end, and cooking dinner is the last thing I want to do at the end of that day.

Easy. Peasy. And, yes, cheesy. (Sorry, had to go there. The rhyme was just too tempting.) This 3 Cheese Gnocchi Mac & Cheese is straight-up comfort food at it’s best.
Let me tell ya’ll about this here casserole. It’s not just any old ‘veggies in a dish with cheese’, anybody can do that. This one’s a game changer.
I love a good bowl of French Onion Soup, especially one topped with a sprinkling of croutons and melted Swiss cheese. But I’ve got a lot on my plate most day, so basically … ain’t nobody got time for that, at least not often.
<Enter this heaven-sent side dish>
For real though, like the name implies, this tastes just like the iconic soup, but it’s so much easier to make.
One night, my defenses had been systematically whittled down enough that, I let the youngest son have the dregs of my Mountain Dew Voltage. It was in a glass and he didn’t know exactly what it was other than some kind of soda, which he’s rarely allowed to have.
Handing me the empty glass to put in the sink: “Mom, that tasted like it gave me powers, super powers. I know it didn’t, but it tasted like super powers.”
Aaaaaaaaand, that is why you my son are not allowed to do The Dew. Like, ever.
Remember all those apples we picked awhile back? We told you they wouldn’t go to waste, and once again we’ve got another recipe to deliver on that promise. And boy does it deliver. In spades.
I know some of you’re already familiar with the beautiful couple that fruit and meat can make in a dish. And for those of you who aren’t, I’m begging you to lower that eye brow and give this a try.
