Simple Marinade

I was looking to come up with a really easy marinade that was similar to my Marinated Skirt Steak recipe, but with no sugar, and even less ingredients, if that was even possible. This multi-purpose marinade does the trick, and so far, I have used it in burgers, on steak, and with roasts. Good every time!

Megan’s Smokey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of those things I dreaded as a child, but as an adult, I understand it. Its easy to prep, get in the oven, and serve to a hungry family since its so hardy! Of course, I had to put my own spin on it by adding smokey Chicago Steak Seasoning, and with

Corn Tortillas- Fun Experiment

So yes, you can buy corn tortillas for cheap at the store, but sometimes its just FUN to do it yourself. And I always look at it as a challenge. If I can make something myself, from scratch, and have it turn out as good as store bought, that’s a win in my book! The

Turkey Taco Wraps

Admittedly, this is one of those “I have randomness in my kitchen, and I would like to use it up all at once” ideas. I had just viewed a Taco Bell commercial on TV for their crunchwrap, and inspiration struck. I don’t really know what is in a crunchwrap, nor do I care, but I do

Creamed Turkey

This one is definitely basic. Its not fancy, and its not much to look at, but its a GREAT way to transform leftovers. My mother used to make this for us and serve over torn up bread, but I always thought it was super tasty over mashed potatoes, so that is how we serve it

Italian Goulash Bake

When this was originally posted, it was the day before Thanksgiving. I know, pizza or takeout is traditionally what people do for dinner as there is so much cooking being done the next day, but I would say that this dish is as easy as pizza or take out. And it wont be cold or
