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.

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!

The traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraiche which originated in the historic Dauphine region in south-eastern France is the inspiration for my version of Gratin dauphinoise.
When my boys were kids it seemed that nearly every day there was some activity we had to get to after school and on weekends. Even in summer there was softball, swimming, Scouts, and 4-H. I hated not being able to cook at home and even on nights I did cook at home it was sometimes something from a box. One meal that was quick and that the boys liked was Hamburger Helper. Then I realized I could do my own version and the kids declared it Better than Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni!

It snowed last night reminding me that winter really is here and the soup season is on. A really tasty and filling soup doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. My Loaded Baked Potato Soup is rich and silky and will leave you with a full tummy and wallet! Even my picky youngest son loves this soup. But he, as he’s stated, would eat a baby if I wrapped it in bacon!

We love breakfast bakes because they’re easy to make and there are so many ways to create a delicious breakfast. I like to use ingredients I have on hand. This week I made a ham so I had plenty of leftovers to make Bam’s Ham Breakfast Bakes. I called this Breakfast Bakes because I made two versions so we each got our favorite!

My family is a meat and potatoes kind of bunch so I make several different kinds of Au Gratin potatoes. I think my personal favorite is my Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin because it’s so cheesy! The sauce is velvety and thick and it coats every bite of the potatoes. Just thinking about it nearly makes me weak in the knees!
