Greek Stuffed Peppers recipe ~ ground turkey, orzo, feta cheese, spinach and chickpeas baked in bell peppers and a Greek-style tomato-herb sauce.

I still *occasionally* eat pizza rolls, have a heavy hand with salt and rarely pass up dessert so when I created and fell in love with this Greek Stuffed Peppers recipe I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

I’ve been stuffing peppers with my favorite flavors for a while now. It’s a great option if you’ve indulged over the last few weeks months like I *may* have for an easy, feel good healthy comfort dinner.

Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin recipe ~ just 20 minutes to juicy flavor-loaded sweet-tangy glazed pork made all in one pan. A delicious, easy, any-night gourmet meal.

I love a good fake-out meal that looks and tastes like you’ve spent hours but whips up quickly. This 20 minute stove to table, one pan recipe is it. In less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered you can wow both the family and guests with this Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin. Delicious, juicy glazed pork tenderloin they’ll remember long after it’s gone.

One Pan Cheesy Taco Pasta

One Pan Cheesy Taco Pasta. Easy, delicious midweek meal that all cooks in 1 pot including the pasta in under 30 minutes. Like Hamburger Help but way better.

One Pan Cheesy Taco Pasta ~ easy, cheesy, delicious meal perfect for midweek. Everything cooks in one pan including the pasta in under 30 minutes. Like Hamburger Help, but better. Way better.

I haven’t made Hamburger Helper in, oh about 100 years. Seriously. Then the other day at the grocery store I whipped around the next aisle and ran smack into a large Hamburger Helper display in the aisle. Thankfully there’s nothing breakable in those boxes.

One Pan Cheesy Taco Pasta is ideal for those nights you need a good meal on the table quickly, where everything cooks in one pot (including the pasta) so there’s less cleanup and *most* of the family will enjoy ~ maybe even your picky eater. It’s like the Hamburger Helper of your childhood, but better. Way better.

Best Salisbury Steak

Best Salisbury Steak: budget-friendly, seared ground beef patties slathered in rich onion-mushroom gravy, serve over mashed potatoes~easy, any night meal.

Dinner | January 20, 2017 | By

Best Salisbury Steak recipe ~ seasoned ground beef patties seared and simmered in rich mushroom gravy served over creamy mashed potatoes. Easy, any night comfort meal.

I woke up this morning with a nasty cold *ugh* the details of which I’ll spare you but while some people lose their appetite when they’re sick, mine actually increases for comfort food, like what can only be described as the Best Salisbury Steak.

I must stress ~ emphatically ~ that this is not the Salisbury steak of your childhood, provided you grew up like I did. As a kid I enjoyed the meals that came from those divided foil trays. Making sure my food didn’t touch was a big thing then (still is). These Salibury Steak patties are pan-seared for extra flavor then slathered in rich mushroom gravy.

At first bite, you’ll know all is right with the world. It’s the comfort meal you didn’t know you needed.
