In case you’ve been living under a rock, (or, you know, living in another country where they inexplicably don’t care about American football) this Sunday is the Super Bowl. So that means football, new commercials, half-time show featuring Beyoncé, and food.
I can’t believe that I’ve yet to share this recipe with you in the 2+ years I’ve been blogging.
This is one of my Grandma’s Recipes, and it’s awesome. My Grandma calls them “Hash Brown Baked Potatoes” but around here, and at church potlucks, we just call them “cheesy potatoes.” (more…)
I uploaded this recipe to Tasty Kitchen yesterday. I don’t have a step-by-step for you this time, but it’s a really simple recipe so I bet you don’t need it.
This recipe has been in our family for quite some time. I always thought it was one of my Grandma’s recipes, but I checked through my scanned copies of her recipes and didn’t find it. I found another recipe for cheeseburger pie, but not this one.
In any case, it’s one my immediate family made when I was growing up (before my mom developed her tomato allergy) and it’s one of my favorites. It meets my 3 criteria for a good weeknight meal: fast, easy, and tasty.
The original recipe calls for a biscuit baking mix. I’ve used that often, but I don’t have any on hand so I mixed up a quick biscuit dough from scratch for the shell. It honestly took almost no extra time to do, and this way I know exactly what is in it. But if you’d like to go the easier route, use 1 cup of biscuit baking mix for the shell, plus 2 tablespoons to mix in with the meat as a little bit of a binding agent.
This dish has old school charm and I love its simplicity. The tomatoes retain a lot of their freshness since it only bakes for half an hour, and they compliment the savory beef, onion, and Worcestershire sauce filling.

I was kind of a weird kid.
I used to make tape recordings of myself all the time. It makes for good blackmail fodder for my parents.
In addition to the tape-recording obsession, I also liked things that kids weren’t supposed to like.
In fact, I liked my mom’s meatloaf so much that it was actually my requested birthday dinner pretty much every year. (more…)
Well, fall is here.
I have mixed feelings about that. I like fall. I love the changing of the leaves, the crisp air, the smells of autumn.
But fall also means that winter is coming.
I’m not a fan of winter.
I don’t know why I live in Minnesota.
One good thing about fall is that with the cooler temperatures comes the yearning for comfort food.
And where better to look for comfort food recipes than in my Grandma’s recipes?
