Oh yeah!  This is some down home Southern cooking right here.  This chicken is unbelievably good for baked chicken and the gravy is to die for.  You might want to double up on the gravy, you will definitely want it for your biscuits the next morning.

This reminded me so much of a New England Boiled Dinner.  I absolutely love the baby dutch yellow potatoes and you don't loose one bit of flavor when they are cooked this way.  The sausage gave the dish a bit of a smoked flavor which was a nice touch.  Not to mention it made the whole house smell delicious!

I have become totally obsessed with this dish from IHOP.  The bad thing is, there are over 1000 calories in the dish from IHOP.  Of course the hollandaise sauce is what makes the dish delicious, so I couldn't very well omit that.  I did, however substitute the eggs with a healthy egg substitute.  These garden stuffed crepes are delicious, try at your own risk of becoming addicted.

My taste buds have graduated from Orange Chicken to General Tso's Chicken recently.  I like the sweetness of it mixed with the heat of the red pepper.  This is my new meat compliment to a chow mein noodle dish.  You like it hot?

All the flavors of a philly cheese steak sandwich wrapped up neatly in a baked pizza crust.  Next time I would probably omit the seasoning as the deli meat and cheese added enough salt to it.

My mother use to make a roast with mashed potatoes almost every Sunday when I was growing up.  I think I attempted to make one in my early to mid twenties that turned out to be shoe leather, so I never made another.  Although I was hesitant with the recipe, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome.  The roast was very tender, juicy and delicious.  Not to mention extremely easy to prepare.

Three ingredients in this easy weeknight dish.  They were a bit salty for my taste, but you could use a reduced sodium cream of chicken soup to eliminate some of the salt.  These chops will fill your family up and they will come back begging for more.

My Mom use to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid, of course I hated them.  I really didn't care for bell peppers until just recently.  I didn't want to make the traditional stuffed pepper with rice and ground beef, so this is my version of a stuffed pepper.  It was quite tasty.
