Egg and Hash Brown Casserole
This is a wonderful breakfast casserole that will feed many. We have it every year for Christmas brunch. The family will not allow me to make anything else. I pair it with my French Toast Strata and everyone is full and happy. It's also very easy to increase the portion by putting it into a 9x13 dish and just adding extra ingredients.

This is a low budget, quick and easy variation of hot and sour soup. The chicken and cabbage are added to make this yummy soup more filling.
Buffalo Chicken Soup
I've found a lot of recipes for Buffalo Chicken Soup but none of them seemed just right. After tailoring elements from all the recipes I found into the perfect one, I came up with this. This soup is creamy and smooth with a hint of spice from the buffalo sauce. Serve it up with a dollop of sour cream and some mozzarella sprinkled on top.

A lighter version of this classic down-home dish. One of the best comfort foods of all time!

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
My vegetarian husband goes crazy over these every time! They are really cheesy, a little bit spicy, and a little bit sweet. Feel free to play around and add chicken or veggies, if you desire. Don't forget the salsa and sour cream!
