Meatball Pasta Bake

Pasta with cheese and meatballs being spooned out of the baking dish

A cheesy baked pasta with meatballs that’s easy to make ahead and reheat. This recipe is great for my semi-homemade tomato sauce because you can cook the meatballs in the slow cooker with the sauce instead of in the oven. I made this a few weeks ago and ate it for lunch during the week.

Pulled Pork Tortilla Soup {Slow Cooker or Stovetop}

I’m trying to purge some of the things from my freezer, and I had some leftover pulled pork that needed to be used. My go-to for using random freezer meats is usually chili, so I thought about doing a white chili or some kind of chili verde (similar to the pulled pork burrito bowls, but

Sirloin Chili (Dutch Oven or Slow Cooker)

Sirloin chili

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker. The beef was super tender, and the chili had a lot of flavor. I’ve included instructions for either method below.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday was a bit of a surprise snow day. It was supposed to snow a little bit, but not all day long. I took half the day off to work on some projects around the house, so I knew I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time making dinner at the end of the

Garlic & Herb Whipped Potatoes

I served these under braised short ribs on Christmas. I went heavier on the red wine and lighter on the beef stock than what I have previously done for braised short ribs, so I will have to post that recipe soon, too. I also made these on New Year’s Day using a different flavor of

Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I made two strip steaks last night, and wanted to do something with the leftovers. I also had a green pepper that needed to be used, probably by tomorrow at the latest. I actually wasn’t a fan of the steak last night when I made it – it wasn’t salty enough. I normally don’t marinate

Baked Rigatoni

I made this dish because I wanted something easy to reheat for lunch throughout the week. I don’t have a toaster oven at work, so anything I make for reheating needs to be something that microwaves well. This dish turned out to be great reheated. Sometimes I needed to add a little water to the

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’ve always been a huge fan of chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is really similar to the one I made before, but I like the new and improved version a lot better! I didn’t have to troubleshoot this recipe at all for being too spicy or salty. This recipe makes a ton (6.75 quart dutch

Simple Chili (for low-budget food challenge)

Chili

One of the meals I made to last most of the week for the low-budget food challenge was a simple chili. I was surprised I was able to pull this off without my usual poblano and jalapeno peppers, among other ingredients. This isn’t the best chili I’ve made, but it tasted good and it was
