American Goulash

The pasta tradition lives on!

Dad's Tortilla Soup

Optional sides include FF Sour Cream and lime flavored whole wheat tortilla chips. It tastes better than it looks! (Pictured with 1 tsp Sour Cream melted in and 7 lime flavored tortilla chips).

Simple Tomato Sauce

Ever get frustrated with canned tomato or spaghetti sauces? This is a great alternative and if tomatoes are in season in your garden use fresh for amazing taste!

Sharon's Chicken Cacciatore

One of my husband's childhood favorites.

Renovated Cream Chipped Beef

Also known as "Sh*& on a Shingle" this is the healthiest way that I've found to make it. Share any substitutions you can think of!

Mushroom and Chicken Risotto

Converted from the Food & Wine Mushroom and Chicken Risotto recipe on their website.

Dad's Mex-Italian Crock Pot

Only my dad can combine those two and make it taste good.

An all in one dish that can be done on the grill or on in the oven. I got this from several years ago.

Cheap and easy is sometimes all I want.

Chicken, Veggies and Rice (Mother Hubbard's Cupboard)

I took some leftover chicken breast and added leftover vegetables in the fridge and freezer for a Friday evening meal. It's a very colorful plate!

Cooking Light- Cold Sesame Noodles with Chicken and Cucumbers

I found this on Cooking Light website. It is wonderful for warm days.

White Chili

This is a great dinner for cold winter nights. My chili always turns out a little more pink than white though because of the salsa.

Turkey Sausage and Gnocchi Soup

My husband loves gnocchi so I have been searching for a recipe that uses it without all of the fat and calories of a traditional application. I think this is it!

Orange Chicken

(Pictured with Quinoa and Stir fry vegetables)

Team Rahal House Salad

This was in the 2005 MIS cookbook

Sausage, Spinach, and White Bean Ragout

Found this in Cooking Light Magazine. My husband has grown to love fresh spinach, but it can be substituted with mustard greens or escarole if you prefer a more pronounced flavor. Although categorized as a soup, you can decrease the amount of broth and water and serve as a more traditional ragout.

Homemade Mild Turkey Sausage

Turkey sausage can be a pain to find at the grocery here. It often requires a 45 minute trip to the organic/fresh food markets in larger cities nearby. I found this recipe for loose turkey sausage (that is called for in several recipes I have) on recipezaar.
