Let’s be real – this is basically Taco Hamburger Helper, but I have no idea how Betty Crocker feels about their name being used for food that isn’t their food….ain’t nobody got money for a lawsuit! This came about because I had emptied my freezer out and taken the proceeds to my ex. While there,

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”.

The last time I made lasagna, I actually read the box of oven ready lasagna noodles….novel concept since I’ve been cooking for more years than I’m comfortable saying and have never done so before. On the box it said to add 1 cup of water for every 4 cups of sauce (to give the noodles

I have a love/hate relationship with that ground beef helper in a box. I loved it when the kids were little because it was quick & cheap, I hated it when the kids were little because they requested it, as kids do, a lot. I like the idea of cooking up some beef, throwing some
