Salisbury Steaks with French Onion Gravy

This dinner (let me just come out and say it from the start) ….. this dinner is probably not on your diet. Well, it wouldn’t appear on any diet I’ve ever subjected myself to. But if you’re in the market for comfort food and don’t mind throwing a little calorie caution to the wind, you should whip this little number up ASAP. Even with an onion gravy, I would absolutely call it kid friendly. A perfect Sunday supper or a relatively easy weeknight meal, serve it over mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles and worry about the treadmill later. : )

Layered Taco Salad

A conversation that my mom friends and I often seem to have is the one where we’re always shocked and incredulous over how much food teenage boys can shove in their faces. And how we aren’t convinced they actually even taste what they eat half the time. And how we all grocery shop multiple times during any given week yet somehow there’s NEVER ANY FOOD IN THE HOUSE. Combine the voracious hunger from fall sports practice with the midnight munchies that will soon (if they haven’t already) come from studying in to the wee hours, and the cabinet and fridge had better be stocked. No one wants to witness the Tazmanian Devil-child coming up empty after a late night kitchen raid … not me, anyway.

Have it your way: Stuffed Sliders

Suppose your inner Martha is considering hosting a cookout this coming weekend. You’re feeling pretty good; your patio pots are planted colorfully and the lawn is greening up. The guest list is coming together in your head and it’s growing by the minute because you’re a sweetheart of a gal and it pains you deeply to leave anyone out. The forecast looks amazing. A perfect party playlist is synced up in your head, it just needs to make its way to your portable electronic device. But even though you are channeling Martha, the menu has you stumped.

Meatball Parmigiana Sliders with Roasted Italian Potatoes

As you can tell from the sale ad and Fan Mail, Balistreri Sendik’s stores are unveiling their new line of Black Angus beef today. As we all know by now, the Balistreri family has some pretty high ideals when it comes to what they’ll sell in their stores. They shoot for the stars. They’re always looking for the best. And so it would stand to reason that offering their customers this amazing brand of beef is really no different than business as usual.

Keema Beef Curry

Good-bye, December. Good-bye month of binge eating and drinking and sleeping too little and partying too much and committing random acts of embarrassing behavior in front of neighbors and friends (don’t ask). Hello, January! Hello fresh beginnings and shiny new resolutions just itching to be broken. My short list: get to the gym more than once a week. Eat less. Drink fewer cocktails. Be nicer. Part ways with the 80’s once and for all. Have more patience. Eat more healthily, and I will …..
