Recipe: The Best Ever Sloppy Joe

This is my fast and easy go to meal when I am sick of the same old stuff or in a hurry. It is nice to throw together on a Sunday night then just warm it up during the week in the slow cooker. It is not too sweet or sour, and it has just the right mix of veggies and seasonings. Start with 1 tablespoon of chili powder, then add more if you prefer more heat! If you are worried about the cooking wine and serving this to children, NO WORRIES! The alcohol cooks out! If you are wondering why this is in the pasta category, read to the bottom to find out.

If you don’t eat beef, this taste good with ground turkey or ground chicken. I have tried it all 3 ways. The chicken was by far my favorite though.

Please enjoy and let me know what you think!

Recipe: Honey Mustard Chicken Fingers

As you can probably tell if you are a frequent reader of this site, I am in fact a chicken addict. This are probably the fastest chicken tenders I have ever made. Since our store seemed to have a run on Corn Flakes, I used a Toasted Corn cereal. It didn’t really come out as crispy as it should have so I do recommend making sure you use Corn Flakes. Next, The recipe calls for 6 to 1 on the Mayo and Honey Mustard sauce. I don’t think the flavor was there so I recommend using 5 tbsp of Mayo and 2 tbsp of Honey Mustard.

#Recipe: Orzo Pepperoni Cake

I was looking for a fast, simple and delicious breakfast that I could prepare for the boys the night before when I found this recipe in one of my Robin Miller cook books. I mixed it up a little with what I had in the house. Below are the books directions with my alterations. I am going to try this one again with ham as we are not really big pepperoni fans. However, it was delicious the way it came out!

Recipe: Banana Walnut Bread

This can be made in a regular loaf pan. I used a Wilton 4 cavity mini loaf pan because that is what I own and it is much easier with the boys to slice off smaller pieces for them. I have included baking times for both below. (Click any image to enlarge) if you try it, let me know what you think! ENJOY!


5-6 really ripe bananas
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of chopped Walnuts


Preheat oven to 300 F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. I used a Wilton mini loaf pan. This took 50 minutes at 300. If you use a regular full loaf pan, bake for 60 minutes.In large bowl, mush peeled bananas with a hand mixer. Add butter, sugar, and eggs. Mix with hand mixer till combined, about a minute. Stir in vanilla.  In separate bowl, sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add this and chocolate chips to wet mixture and fold w/rubber spatula until combined. Divide equally between 2 loaf pans and bake for 1 hour.
