Cooking On A Budget + Good Cook GIVEAWAY – Welcome Studio 10 Viewers

Good morning and WELCOME Studio 10 viewers!  Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and if you are like me…finding a babysitter and getting out this weekend may be tough, but you would still like to make the day special.  Where do we find the TIME??  With the kids, soccer practice, gymnastics, homework, Cub Scouts, work, and all the household stuff to attend to, it’s hard to take a few hours to make a fancy meal to enjoy at home.

Well, you CAN make a delicious meal and have it be ready in under an hour with less than 10 minutes prep time.  Add in a bottle of wine and a candle on the table and you have yourself a fabulous Valentine’s Day dinner 🙂

I am very proud to be a Good Cook Kitchen Expert and I used their amazing products on the show today to make an easy and delicious Chicken Pot Pie.

  3. My favorite recipe as a non meat eater, would have to be my Veggie Quiche ! It’s usually a big hit with my kids even though veggies are not their favorite thing to eat!

  4. One of my favorite recipes is Italian Pot Roast. It’s so easy and it comes out oh so tender. It falls off your fork. This is what you will need:

    1 pot roast
    1 green pepper
    1 onion
    2 cans diced tomato with oregano and basil

    That is it. You put it all into a crock pot and set and forget. I usually start it before work or low and let it cook all day. It is really good over rice or noodles.

  5. One of our favorite recipes is Baked Pork Chops
    4-5 pork chops
    3/4 tsp. garlic powder
    3/4 tsp. season salt
    1 egg, beaten
    3 T. flour
    1-1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
    2-3 T. olive oil

    Rinse chops and pat dry. Season with garlic powder and season salt.
    Place beaten egg in shallow bowl. Dredge chops in flour, then dip in egg and then coat liberally with breadcrumbs. Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat.
    Fry the chops (5 minute per side) or until breading appears well-browned.
    Transfer chops to a baking dish and cover with foil.
    Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.

  6. Easy french onion beef. Round steak in a crock pot with a can of french onion soup over it, cooked for 6 hours on low. Then put stuffing mix in the pot and let the bread absorb the soup and meat drippings. Easy and everyone like it.

  7. The thing I have been making a lot lately is the Parmesan Chicken (with mayo and breadcrumbs). It’s so easy to change around a bit, and even my very finicky Dad will eat it!

  8. My fave is grilled cheese with provolone cheese and a tiny bit of garlic. It’s better than it sounds. Thank you 🙂

  9. Twice Baked Potato Casserole

    6 medium potato, baked
    1⁄2 tsp salt
    1⁄4 tsp pepper
    1 lb bacon, cooked and drained
    3 cup sour cream
    2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
    2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
    2 scallion, chopped

    Cut peeled potatoes in 1 inch cubes.
    Place half in greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
    Sprinkle with half the salt, pepper, and bacon.
    Top with half the sour cream and cheeses.
    Repeat layers.
    Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes.
    Sprinkle with scallions.

  10. That chicken pot pie recipe sounds really good. My favorites are homemade lasagna and homemade apple pie. Thanks!
