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.

Taco's are such an easy meal to throw together in a hurry.  I usually cook several boneless, skinless chicken breast at a time and freeze them for later use.  With the chicken already cooked, these can be ready in a pinch.  The chicken is a healthy alternative to traditional beef taco's.  Can be made with soft flour tortilla's as well.

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.

This recipe looked so good and so simple to make.  I found it to be a bit bland.  The original recipe called for cream cheese and I substituted it with the greek yogurt cream cheese, this was probably the reason for it being bland.  The fat in original cream cheese would have gave it more flavor.

Growing up in New England of course I love lobster rolls, or as more commonly pronounced 'lobstah' rolls.  There seems to be some very strong opinions on what exactly a lobster roll consist of.  I like them both ways.  Mine are "poor man's" because I don't use lobster at all but instead imitation crab.  Hey don't hate, I'm in land-locked Oklahoma and lobster is very expensive here.
