When you love lasagna but:
- You don’t need a whole 9 x 13″ pan…
- You don’t have the time to fuss with the assembly…
here’s what you need to do: Make Spaghetti Pie! This recipe was introduced to me almost ten years ago and it has become a staple in our house (meaning I make it a couple times a year, due to my love for fixing new recipes!). Recently I made it as I’m trying to thumb through my blog recipe file and make some of the dishes we loved. Take a look at this fork-full!

I have been on a mission ~ I’m trying to cook through my own recipe files on my blog. Someone told me recently that I have more recipes than anyone they’ve ever seen! It’s true, but it’s because I love making new dishes! I love experimenting! I also have a willing husband who will try whatever I fix! That makes it even more fun! But because I have do have so many recipes, I don’t re-make many of them. So, I am doing just that. It’s been a delicious venture!
Today’s recipe of Pork Tenderloin with Herb Glaze was made at our house ten years ago! I couldn’t wait to try it again. I recently purchased a pork tenderloin on sale at the grocery store and I cut the large piece of meat into halves, making enough for several meals for us or providing for company.
We loved this recipe because the flavors are just so savory! Continue reading “Pork Tenderloin with Herb Glaze”
I love sheet pan dinners for four reasons:
- The roasted vegetables get crispy and sweet in the oven!
- They’re so easy!
- They’re fast!
- They’re sooo good!
I made this new Sheet pan meal last week and we loved it! It was ready in under 30 minutes! The Paprika Vinaigrette adds a really nice flavor to the sausage and vegetables. Wow, this is just a great recipe!! It’s great for a week night, but would also be good for company!
I tweaked the recipe to my liking and it is as follows. You could change up the vegetables, or choose to use beef or chicken sausage, if you desire. It’s super-easy to make it just the way you or your family would prefer.
I added a tossed salad and toasted bread to complete the meal.
Turkey Kielbasa & Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner
- 1 small red onion, chopped into 1 inch chunks
- 15 fresh Brussels sprouts, stem trimmed and cut in half
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks
- 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
- 1/2 head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 12 oz Fully cooked Turkey Kielbasa, sliced into 1″ pieces
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- black pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 tsp honey
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 tsp paprika
To make the Paprika Vinaigrette, put all the ingredients into a mason jar then screw the lid on tightly and shake vigorously until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Remove the pan out of the oven and drizzle the vinaigrette over the vegetables and sausage. Toss to coat.
To prep ahead:
I cut up all the vegetables and drizzled them with olive oil early in the afternoon. It made the preparation so easy when it was time to get supper in the oven!
Have you tried a sheet pan dinner yet? If not, this would be a great one to get your started!
Refresh dinner with something so fast and delicious!
Cold winter days just need hearty soups and stews, both to warm the body and comfort the soul!
One day last week I decided to make an old favorite stew recipe of mine – Amish Stew, and I went to my blog to pull up the directions, and I couldn’t believe it when I discovered I haven’t shared this gem of a recipe with you! Let’s fix that today!
I could give this dish a couple other names that would be more appropriate than Amish Stew. It could easily be called, Lazy Day Stew or Poor Man’s Stew. Both would be appropriate! Let me share the recipe and you’ll see why!

I love recipes that have a story. Such is the case with today’s recipe.
Many years ago when I was in high school, my twin sister and I were riding to our home in the country on a cold, snowy day. Our driver was my sister’s boyfriend (who later became her husband). As boys are want to do, he might have been driving a little faster than the narrow, icy roads necessitated. Just as we topped a hill, we met another car coming towards us. The brakes were hit, and our car Continue reading “Turkey Soup and a Story”
