30 Minute Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

These little cuties take the sloppy out of Sloppy Joes! They were a HUGE hit! You can use homemade biscuit dough or the store-bought stuff.

Served with homemade BBQ ChipsContinue reading “Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups”

American Goulash

I haven’t made American Goulash (not to be confused with Hungarian Goulash) in a hot minute, which is surprising because it’s one of my favorite childhood dishes. Beef, pasta, herbs, chicken stock? Yes, please! It’s such a hearty dish that is amazing on a winter night! Or a spring night. Or a summer night. IContinue reading “American Goulash”
