World's Best Lasagna

Rating: 5 stars 19844
With sausage, beef, basil, and 3 types of cheese, it lives up to its name!


Rating: 4 stars 514
These are great to make ahead of time and then freeze. We freeze them with mashed potatoes and corn as part of a homemade TV dinner.

Sloppy Joes

Rating: 4.5 stars 7675
Perfectly flavored, nostalgic, comfort-food classic Sloppy Joe sandwiches.

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Rating: 3.5 stars 491
Grilled chicken with a combination of beer, lime juice and spices. It's just amazing!

Cheese and Potato Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 25
This is an awesome side dish that I can't eat enough of it! A cheese and hash brown mixture is covered with a simple, crunchy topping and baked to perfection!

Smoky Grilled Pork Chops

Rating: 4.5 stars 741
These thick pork chops have a smoky flavor, are very moist and tender, and the rub is easy to make. A family favorite, always requested at BBQs. I like to serve these chops with loaded baked potatoes and a garden salad.

Eileen's Meatloaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 643
This meatloaf recipe uses onion soup mix and Worcestershire sauce. It is excellent for cold sandwiches in the hubby's lunchbox. Try it with onion or ranch dip instead of sour cream.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Rating: 4.5 stars 922
Too busy to cook? A slow cooker and a can of beef broth gets you started on this recipe. 'Low and slow' cooking gives you a roast that shreds with a fork. As an added bonus you get great stock for beef gravy as a by-product! Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce and plenty of coleslaw.

Garlic Green Beans

Rating: 4.5 stars 1262
Caramelized garlic and cheese! Is there anything better with green beans? You'd better make plenty for everyone!

Sarah's Homemade Applesauce

Rating: 5 stars 3260
Make your own applesauce at home with just apples, sugar, and cinnamon.

Fresh Tomato Pasta

Rating: 4.5 stars 47
This is an extremely simple pasta recipe that I love to make when I don't really feel like cooking! I use rigatoni, but you can use whatever pasta you prefer. This is especially delicious with tomatoes fresh from your garden. Serve with garlic bread and a simple lettuce salad with Italian dressing.
