grandma’s creamy ham & cheese pasta casserole

So I was thinking comfort food for dinner last night. But, what to make? I wasn’t really in the mood for chicken, hamburger, or tuna. And then I remembered my favorite ham & cheese casserole. I usually make this after Easter or Christmas when I have a bunch of leftover ham on hand, but there’s…

ham & cheese stacker

Just like my pork roast stacker, turkey stacker, and diner meatloaf stacker, this isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of a method for enjoying holiday leftovers. This one is particularly good with a little side of your favorite cranberry sauce. If you want, just top your ham with the cranberry sauce before you add the…

crunchy hawaiian ham wrap

Everyone loves my original Crunchy Ham Wraps, and my Crunchy Turkey Swiss Wraps so much that I decided to create a new one! This time with a Hawaiian twist! You’re going to love the addition of coconut, pineapple, ginger, and other spices in the crunchy slaw! It really brings out the delicious flavors of the…

grandma’s ham salad

We still had a little bit of ham in the freezer that was leftover from Easter, so I decided to make up some of my grandma’s famous ham salad for a picnic! It’s so good, and so easy! Exactly like grandma used to make. Double or triple the recipe as needed to feed a crowd…

Cheesy, hammy, ooey gooey goodness! This chicken cordon bleu casserole tastes just like the fancy rolled gourmet version, but it’s much easier to prepare! I like to make this when I have ham in my refrigerator left over from the holidays. Do you have leftover ham from Easter? Then get cookin’! ~ for the casserole…

pork roast stacker

We love making leftovers into stackers! A stacker is pretty much just a hot, open faced sandwich topped with mashed potatoes. Sometimes we add a drizzle of gravy, sometimes a sprinkle of cheese, and other times just a pat of butter with salt and pepper. Some of the other stackers my readers have enjoyed are:…

amish ham & pea salad

Yummy! This is a delicious, easy salad! It’s a great way to enjoy some of that leftover holiday ham that may be residing in your freezer. We love the smoky ham, sweet peas, sharp cheese, and the addition of creamy ranch mayonnaise. NOTE ***Add the ranch seasoning gradually as to not create a salad that’s…

turkey soup with dumplings

I have a few “go to” comfort food meals up my sleeve, but I have to say soups and stews that include big dumplings are at the top of my list. I always make up a big pot of turkey veggie soup using the leftover turkey bones/carcass from our Thanksgiving bird. It makes the BEST…

Poutine n. ~ A French-Canadian dish that originated in the province of Quebec. It’s traditionally composed  of French fries, and fresh cheese curds, covered with rich, brown gravy. The first time I heard about poutine I was standing in my kitchen listening to talk radio. One of my favorite radio show hosts, Stephanie March, was…
