Hamburger “Helper”

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

Let me preface this with get the cheese cold, or just mix the cheese and bacon into the meat, unless someone has a suggestion as to how to keep the cheese in the burger. I made a cranberry habanero topped brie around Canadian Thanksgiving and still had about half of a brie round left. Couldn’t

No, there’s no actual steak….it’s basically a burger with no bun but plenty of gravy. Doesn’t matter to me, though, it tastes really good and that’s what I want from my food. Flavour! This is a comfort meal component for me. It’s a hot meal on a chilly evening. It’s simple ingredients. It’s inexpensive ingredients.

Funny story – I actually wanted noodles for supper tonight…..and somehow I ended up at beef pie. The internet is a wondrous thing. You start somewhere, looking for inspiration and end up a million pages away. Anyway, this can be made with a pie crust to completely enclose it, just a top pie crust or

Mid August has descended upon Calgary, and so has cooler weather. It was a whopping 9C today. 34C a week or so ago, and 9C today. I was messaging with someone today and they mentioned that there was snow in Alberta last week – wasn’t sure where, exactly, but the rumour is out there. Given

My mom makes pretty darn good meatloaf, and I don’t just say that because I have to. My former mother-in-law made decent meatloaf – although she tossed in a can of Campbell’s vegetable soup and the first time I ever had it, I freaked out a bit when I looked down for my next bite

This Green Mexican sauce showed up at my house one day and sat for a few weeks. I would see it in the cupboard and think, “I should make a burrito bowl or something with that”….and then I would forget about it again. Another couple days would go by, I’d see it again, and go

It sounds weird, I know, but it’s really good. It’s supposed to be called a Big Mac salad, but I feel Big Mac has some very definite non-healthy feelings attached to the name. I occasionally indulge in the Mac of the Big size, and I have no guilt about it. They’re awesome. An indulgence, but

I’ve had a sort-of-like/hate relationship with sloppy joes. How is it that every child knows about sloppy joes – they have them at someone else’s house or something and then you get tormented until you make them? I used to take the shortcut and use the can of Manwich – which I hate (sorry Hunt’s).

It was a lovely day yesterday, reasonable temperature – although not really cool enough to bake….so I promptly baked dinner. What is wrong with me? Why do I do this? Yesterday would have been a great day to barbeque, but I baked in the oven. I think there’s a wire crossed in my head. 🙂
