I had some cube steak in the freezer which I normally turn into Country Fried Steak. Unfortunately, that dish doesn’t quite fit into the new diet. Oh, I won’t give up my tasty favorite dish but for now, it will have to wait.
So, what to do with my cube steak? After poking around the internet, I came up with Swiss steak. This was a dish I knew my hubby would love. I didn’t however, feel like jumping through all the steps of standard Swiss steak. Let’s just say, I’ve “dummied down” the recipes I found!
If you want Swiss steak but are short on time, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe.
Learning to like chicken is turning out to be a delight. Yes, that’s right, I don’t like chicken. Usually. For years, whenever I ordered chicken, I’d push it away. My husband would ask, “What’s wrong with it?” I’d reply, “It tastes like chicken.”
It tastes exactly like what I picture a bird would taste like. I know that sentence doesn’t make any sense. and how does one get over a weird taste issue? They try hundreds of recipes until they find one that’s finger licking, lip smacking good.
It doesn’t hurt that I’ve started watching my calories and I’m actually starving at dinner time!
They make for a quick & delicious meal that is kid-friendly and husband approved. I’ve made these for my daughter’s band (200+ kids) and they were a big hit. I usually serve them with my Homemade Crispy Fries. They go well with coleslaw and/or potato salad.
If you would like to kick them up a notch, add a bit of bell pepper & teaspoon or two of your favorite hot sauce.
Southern Fried Potatoes compliment many dishes, are easy to cook and are a favorite on any table. This recipe uses a cooking hack that works for most fried potatoes.
I almost always zap my potatoes in the microwave before frying them – just until they are slightly tender. The nice thing about this method is that I have time to slice onions, peppers, heat my oil, work on other food, etc. etc.
A couple of years ago my husband came home from his new job and told me about the chili cook-off that is held there every year. I was intrigued but I had one problem. I don’t like chili. Not too surprising, huh?
So I set out to study chili recipes and Three Bean Shredded Beef Chili is what I came up with. We swept the awards that year, winning People’s Choice & the Top Prize. You can see a picture of my hubby with his prize below the recipe. Unfortunately he kept my his plaque at work.
