recipes to try

I love that I have collected a whole new group of recipes from people that have brought us meals these last 2 months. Here are a few that were HUGE hits at our house and will definitely be in the regular meal rotation:

**Taco Pie (from Leah)
  • Brown 1lb of hamburger and add 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • Take two cans of crescent rolls and roll one can out in a greased 9 x 13 pan
  • Spread the meat over the crescent rolls and top with cheese (any amount).
  • Then unroll the top layer of crescent rolls over the meat and bake according to the package.
  • Then when it comes out, serve with any toppings you like on tacos. Super easy and super delicious!
**Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos (made for us by Joanna)  - click on the picture for the recipe.  These were AMAZING and very easy to make.
* *Saucy Italian Stuff (from Louise)
  • 3/4 of a box of rotelle
  • 1ish jar of sauce
  • 1 lb of hamburger
  • 1 roll of bob evans Italian sausage
  • salt, pepper, Mrs.. dash traditional blend to taste in the meat
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 large green pepper
  • 8 oz package of mozzarella or Italian blended cheese
  • Cook pasta according to directions. Heat olive oil and sauté onion and pepper until translucent (or caramelized if you want it sweeter).
  • Squish together meat and season.  Form into meatballs and begin browning in the pan.  Once brown on all sides, add sauce and slowly cook through.
  • Once the pasta is done, drain but save a coffee cup full of the starchy water (Rachael Ray tip) to mix back in with the sauce and meatballs. 
  • Top with cheese and brown under the broiler if desired for a few minutes.
**Orange Push Up Smoothies – found this one on pinterest and they definitely tasted like the orange push-ups I remember as a child.  Yummy!IMG_6957
