My grandmother's potato kugel. She served this at Passover mostly but sometimes would make it for other holidays as well.
My grandmother's carrot kugel recipe. This was served every Passover and if we were lucky at other times as well. Margarine is what she used as this was often served with a meat meal. I use Country Crock. You can use butter if you would like.
This is a go-to recipe that the kids actually like. It is a large recipe and is enough for 3-4 dinners. I usually serve it the night that I make it and then put away/freeze the remainder in dinner-sized portions for other nights.
I made this as an alternative to cabbage cooked with corned beef on St. Pat's Day as our family is not big on cabbage.
This is a mild adaptation from a recipe From Woman's Day Magazine. The original had cabbage and potatoes in it which we were not having with dinner.
This is my grandmother's recipe copied from the card she gave it to me on. We had these every year for Chanukah and almost half never made it to the table. I am working out how to make then healthier yet still remain traditional. For now this is an indulgent holiday treat.
This is modified from a recipe on the Pillsbury website that uses Grands. I only had the smaller biscuits on hand and made these.
A favorite with my kids. Good for 2 small family dinners or 1 large family dinner. Can be frozen.
Amount of bread crumbs is different from calculation to ingredient list to allow for leftover from coating chicken.
Uses skim milk and Country Crock Spread
Prepared as per directions on box.
Standard prep of Hamburger Helper, using ground turkey and skim milk.
We always made this when we served fish sticks or something similar. It is a lot like Thousand Island dressing and very similar to an old item that used to be sold called "Big H Burger Sauce". We never used to measure, so I have tried to figure out approximate amounts.
Hamburger Helper made with lean beef and skim milk
Preparation as per package directions using skim milk and Country Crock.
This is my take on Sausage and Peppers. I never actually read a recipe for it and just winged it. For the peppers, you can use whatever color you choose. I like to use a variety to please the kids and I think that it looks pretty.
Seasoning packet and 1.5 lbs ground turkey
Made using products from Aldi.
I was looking for something different to make with my chicken and found these ingredients in my pantry. They can be switched up for different flavors or to use what you have on hand. Also, fresh ingredients would work wonderfully with this, but I listed it as that is what I had on hand.
You can stretch this recipe by cutting the breasts in half or adding a couple more and using petite diced tomatoes instead of the regular size ones. They will cover more chicken.
This is my take on my mom's meatloaf.
Threw this together when my daughter had been begging for mac and cheese and we were out of some and snowed in. I actually double it and have lots on hand for veggies and such beyound the noodles. Spice it up any way you like. Also great as a dip for chips, but may need to be thinned with a little more milk.
Used turkey, skim milk, and light mayo. Saved prep info for future use.
Easy dinner using cream soups. Couldn't find a recipe to do what I wanted, so here is what I threw together.
Took this recipe and adjusted it to make it healthier and to use the items that I had on hand.
Modified Pillsbury Recipe - Add a kick by adding in other spices or using taco-seasoned cheeses. This dish lends itself to many variations (Hey, this is a variation on the original.)
This was a throw-together to make use of the chicken. It can be tweaked in many ways to bring down the calories and sodium.
Taken from the instruction manual for my Black and Decker Blender. They recommend serving this with tortilla chips. I used no salt added corn for this recipe.
This was a throw-together with what I had on hand when I didn't find what I wanted in other recipes. You can make one big casserole or 2 smaller ones. I did the 2 and froze one for later.
This is my way of getting extra vegatables and nutrients into our diet. I just add extras to the sauce. You can switch this around many ways. I usally just look though the pantry and see what I have that day.
Super simple and tasty. The cooking shortcut came from another SP member while looking for dinner ideas.
I made this to use up leftovers. I think it turned out pretty good. You can modify it many ways depending on what you have on hand. I used the dips to add some hidden vegatable protein from the kids. Would be great in a burrito or on a sandwich as well.
