Okay so i know that this isnt very healthy.. but if theres ever a day where you are too lazy to go to the store and you have hot dogs.. this is an idea you can try

what you need

packet of hotdogs
2 mild chili peppers
half an onion
3 or 4 table spoons of olive oil
sat to taste

*dice up peppers and onions
*slice hotdogs into small rounds or pieces (i prefer to boil my hotdogs before i slice them to ensure that they are fully cooked)
*heat olive oil in a sauce pan
*saute peppers and onion until onion begins to slightly turn brown, add salt to taste
* then add the sliced up hot dogs and saute until they start to turn golden brown (if you didnt boil them give em a bit of time until they are cooked on medium heat about 15 -20 minutes constantly stirring)

here is what it looked like when i started cooking it..

I forgot to take a pic of the finished product hehe.. everyone ate it. oops

I make stroganoff on the stove. Here's what I do:
1 lb ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
sour cream
2 c. egg noodles (or any noodles)
1 can cut green beans

Brown the beef and boil the noodles at the same time. Drain both.
Mix soup into beef, add green beans, mix well.
Add in sour cream to taste (I use half a carton) and mix well.
Mix in noodles and serve.

It's really quick and yummy - I usually make a double batch and freeze half the beef/soup/green beans mixture and freeze it in a bag. Then all I have to do later is warm up and add noodles and sour cream.

Jack Daniels Meatloaf (safe for pregnancy):

1.5 lb ground beef (80% lean)
1.5 lb ground turkey
1 lg yellow onion finely diced
5 cloves garlic finely diced
1.5 cup ketchup
2tbsp steak sauce
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
2-3 shots Jack Daniels or favorite whiskey
1 cup bread crumbs (I use the italian herb kind)
2 tbsp each onion powder, garlic powder
3 tbsp olive oil

salt, pepper, worcestershire (i just walked into the kitchen so i could spell that right) to taste.


simmer ketchup, steak sauce, and 1/3 of whiskey for 3-5 minutes until alcohol has cooked out and left a yummy flavor). Set aside (this is what you brush on top!)

Sautee onions and garlic with 1/3 of whiskey (you may need to add a little olive oil or non stick spray to the pan). Add to large bowl. Add all other ingredients and stir (best to use your hands) and dont forget the last splash of whiskey. (IT ALL COOKS OUT, I PROMISE!!!).

Form into 1/2-3/4 lb mini loafs and put on baking sheet. coat liberally with ketchup mixture. (reserve extra ketchup for hot dogs, burgers, etc later!). bake at 375 for 1/2 hr to 45 mins (depending on elevation). I alwasy check doneness with a meat thermometer because my over times are pretty off, so just watch them! I served it with grilled veggies and a small baked potato.

You can also (if you have kids) make the mini meatloafs in muffin tins to make them kid-sized and decrease cooking time even more! You'd have to experiment with the time as I have not made them this way before!


The ketchup sauce to this is seriously fantastic and I keep it on hand for everything from french fries to morning eggs. It is seriously fantastic.

You can also omit the bread crumbs and scale it down to just make burgers for the family (i did that too...mmm). I just made extra onions/garlic and topped the burgers with it when I served!q

Simple pasta salad:

1 lb favorite bowtie/penne/rotelle pasta (i use whole wheat variety) cooked and drained
1 and a half containers of grape tomatos, halved
1 cup finely shredded FRESH basil (check the produce department if you dont grow it)
1 plastic tub of PASTURIZED feta.


Mix ingredients together and chill for about an hour before serving (its great room temp too...I just chill mine enough to get the heat from the pasta out!)

I had this for dinner last night with ahi tuna and a salad and it was fantastic!

1 can beef broth (low sodium if you like!)
1 can Progresso french onion soup
1 can mushroom soup
1 lb whole mushrooms cut into quarters.
1 pkg brown gravy mix
1 cup water.
2 tbsp REAL butter
salt and pepper to taste


Cook egg noodles per directions on box/bag. Drain and set aside covered.

Brown the beef lightly on all sides. Remove from pan. Sautee mushrooms
in buttter (salt them now to help draw out juices). Add broth and canned soups and continue to sautee until they are nicely combined (2-3 mins) and then add the water and powdered gravy mix. Return meat to skillet and cook until meat reaches desired doneness (med-well for you pregnant ladies). Pour over noodles and serve family style!
