Mennonite Salisbury Steak

When we lived in Illinois we attended a church that was an off-shoot of the Mennonites. Every Sunday there was a community meal served after the service. It was there that I collected so many wonderful recipes from the Mennonites and also from the Amish folk. Mennonite Salisbury Steak is a simple, comforting meal you’ll love.

Skillet Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

I feel just terrible. This summer I’ve almost entirely ignored broccoli in my cooking. It’s really strange because, even as a kid, broccoli has always been one of my favorite vegetables. I keep expecting to get a sad email from a head of broccoli asking why we broke up. Before that happens I’m making Skillet Garlic Parmesan Broccoli. I hate sad emails, especially from vegetables I love.

Sheet Pan Shrimp & Vegetables

Shrimp is something at least most of my family will still eat. So when I was trying to come up with a meal for our family dinner I decided the safest and tastiest bet was Sheet Pan Shrimp & Vegetables. Everyone except Jami and John eats shrimp! And everyone likes vegetables. Well, Estrella has no choice about eating them but the rest of us like them!

Spicy Sweet Chicken Thighs with Dijon Sauce

We’re at that time of year when the weather is still summery but you know cold weather is just around the corner. It makes me long for June when summer was still stretched out in front of me. I saw a recipe and it reminded me of long, hot summer days. I decided to make Spicy Sweet Chicken Thighs with Dijon Sauce and see how we liked them. I’ve promised to be honest about what I cook and this is one of those meals!

Super Simple Spicy Green Beans

Fresh green beans are one of our favorite vegetables. And I have a lot of them right now. To make things a bit more interesting I made Super Simple Spicy Green Beans last night. They’re always a hit with Mr. Comfortable and I love them too! Anything that takes a “same old” vegetable to the next level has to be good, right?

Cranberry Red Pepper Jelly

I found this recipe in Southern Living and fell in love with it! Cranberry Red Pepper Jelly is great on meats and just as good poured over cream cheese and spread on crackers. The original recipe makes about 3 cups so I halved it so I could use it all up in a timely manner.

Peas are a pretty versatile vegetable. You can simply get them hot and serve them with a little butter or you can make them into something fancier. An easy-to-make dish that makes peas really special is Herbed Peas with Shallots.
