Wet Bean Burritos

Mexican food, especially when you use beans, are typically one of the least expensive meals you can put on your table. We love Mexican food at our house…not too spicy though. There is a Mexican Restaurant near us, that we sometimes visit and Doug always gets the Wet Burrito. We have made lots of different […]

Sweet and Sour Shrimp Pockets

Are you stuck in a cooking rut? So often, we get stuck making the same recipes, or even the same kinds of meals. Last weekend, we whipped up these Sweet and Sour Shrimp Pockets for a fun meal. Now of course, you can serve this meal without the pockets, maybe over a bed of rice, […]

Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Hot Jambalaya! Hot Jambalaya! The best thing about creating recipes for the family in your own kitchen is that occasionally moments come along that make you realize that all the hard work is worth it.  This Slow Cooker Jambalaya recipe I adapted from Hunt’s is just the latest moment. And the best thing about this is that […]

Red Beans and Rice

Growing up I never was one for beans, sure I loved green beans and Campbell’s bean with bacon soup. But as hard as my parents tried they never were able to get me to eat a meal that was comprised of beans. It took many years and the coaxing of a former co-worker to find […]

Easy Chicken Parmesan

We love pasta and chicken so you would think that Chicken Parmesan would be something that we regularly make for dinner. After making this last night I can guarantee this will get a place in next month’s menu plan. We haven’t made this in a long time so I searched around and came across an easy […]

Easy Taco Bake

Every week there seems to be one day that time seems to slip by like sand in an hourglass, the days of our lives. Yeah sometimes it is a soap opera. It’s good to have a recipe that is simple to throw together at the last minute, that’s when this Easy Taco Bake would come […]

Wonton and Mushroom Soup

Ok, so here is the scenario. Here we are on a Sunday spending the entire day cooking for the Chinese New Year Celebration, Liz is busy creating an amazing dragon made from cupcakes and I’ve got three pans cookin’ on the stove trying to time everything to get done around the same time. When we realized that we […]

Orange Mango Chicken and Weekly Menu Plan

Chinese New Year is next Monday, January 23rd., do you celebrate it? We never have, but I thought it would be fun to put together some recipes and fun ideas to share with you all. We will be sharing a few recipes early this week, and on Hoosier Homemade we will be sharing some fun […]

Asian Pork Kabobs Recipe

Every time I add a dish that calls for pork to the menu, Liz cringes. It’s not because she dislikes the taste, she just doesn’t feel that it is that budget friendly. So I’ve had to be creative with the cuts of meat I incorporate into the dishes. This Asian Pork Kabobs Recipe uses one […]

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Making a satisfying meal for a busy family doesn’t need to take the entire evening. I’ve learned over the years that it’s more important to spend what little time we can carve out of our busy schedules with our family. And with Doug still learning the in’s and out’s of cooking (even if he won’t […]
