Parmesan Meatballs

Keeping meatballs in the freezer is something I have done for years. Whether they’re Italian, Greek, Swedish, or plain they always come in handy. One variety I haven’t made in a while is Parmesan meatballs. It’s crazy not to have these on hand! They are great for spaghetti and meatballs or for my favorite Parmesan meatball subs!

Hoosier Pork Sandwich

Our oldest son, Paul has lived in Indiana for over a decade. While I’m not thrilled with having him and his family so far away I have discovered some great food down there! One dish I would never have thought of on my own is the Hoosier Pork Sandwich! This is a delicious, enormous sandwich that is an Indiana tradition.

Cheesy Chicken Stuffing Bake Two Ways

We’ve been having a late heat wave and it’s really taking a toll on me. I like the hot weather but it’s been in the 90’s every day for about a week and that increased my pain levels exponentially. Because of this I’ve been trying to make meals I can double. I get dinner and a freezer meal. That’s why I made Cheesy Chicken Stuffing Bake Two Ways.

Spicy Steak Quesadillas

Sometimes Mr. Comfortable asks for something specific for dinner and, if it’s possible to make it, I do. A menu plan is great but you have to leave room for adjustments. Recently Mr. C asked if I would make some Spicy Steak Quesadillas and I was happy to oblige. But I had to use what I had on hand so this isn’t a fancy recipe.

Three Cheese Baked Penne

Lately I haven’t made any freezer meals and I really do miss having some for those days when I just can’t cook. But I have an easy recipe that will feed us one the night I make it and provide a freezer meal for the future. Three Cheese Baked Penne is like a bonus meal since I get two dinners and only cook once!

Chicken Milanesa

Chicken and citrus are great together! I love the way those flavors complement each other. Like Mr. Comfortable and me, they bring out the best in each other! The Panamanian way I make Chicken Milanesa, with its crispy coating and lime flavor is a terrific chicken dish. I incorporate lime juice right into the dish rather than simply serving it with lime slices.

Mama’s Guinness Irish Stew

In 1725 Arthur Guinness was born in County Kildare, Ireland. With £100 he inherited from his godfather Arthur started a small ale brewery in 1752. And in 1759 he moved to Dublin and signed a 9,000 year lease on a rather dilapidated and ill-equipped brewery. I’m so glad he did because 258 years later I can make Mama’s Guinness Irish Stew!
