Cashew Chicken is one of my favorite Chinese dishes! This casserole is a great “stand-in” for that dish when going out to dinner isn’t an option…especially with a big hungry family! It’s one of my personal favorites. It can be made the day before and popped into the oven for a quick easy weeknight meal that the whole family will love. Not too mention, if your lucky enough to have any leftovers…lol…it makes for a great “re-heated” lunch dish!
One of the first main dishes I made, were these yummy easy ground beef enchilada’s. I was in High School and eager to make anything with hamburger that wasn’t “meatloaf” or “spaghetti”! We all have our limits! lol Years later…it’s still one of my very favorite quick tasty family meals. The only thing to change over the years? The enchilada sauce. I make my own now…but you can still use canned! This is a dish your family will love!
As a Mom, and Grandma, I’m always looking for budget friendly dishes to make for our growing Nest of little grandchicks’s and their parents! My new Beef Smoked Sausage Casserole has it all! Delicious smoked beef sausage, hearty red potatoes, vegetables, smothered in one incredible rich creamy cheese sauce that will have ya wanting to lick the plate clean! This is 100% pure comfort food on a family friendly budget!
Winter is “cold and flu season”! I think everyone in my little country town is sick right now…including yours truly! I don’t know about you…but when I’m sick, I crave comfort food. I want a dish that wraps around me like a big puffy quilt and warms me from the inside out! Like this creamy delicious Chicken Biscuit Pot Pie. Chicken and vegetables topped with big fluffy cheddar biscuits! It will cure what ails ya!
I’m going to be busy in the kitchen cooking up a storm preparing for the “Big Day”! I’m sure I’ll have prepared way too much food and the refrigerator will be stuffed with leftovers. When we’re tired of Turkey Sandwiches, and reheated Turkey dinner…I’ll whip up this delicious comforting Leftover Thanksgiving Casserole. The addition of White sauce and Swiss Cheese changes it up just enough to make all those leftovers new and exciting!
Here at “Norine’s Nest” I am all about down home everyday cooking! You know…comfort foods! There’s not a lot of “fluff” in my recipes and meal plans. I’m not a gourmet chef and I’m not trained professionally. I just try to come up with recipes you will want to serve to your family at your “Nest”. Casseroles are just a “main stay” here at Norine’s Nest! I can’t think of a better comfort food than a delicious casserole. I grew up on them. Casseroles are cozy, heartwarming, and say “Home”. They fill little bellies, Daddy bellies, and growing teenage bellies with goodness and love! Let’s face it, every meal a mother, or father, makes is made with love. It’s our way of making sure our family is fed and taken care of. Every act of service we render is out of love for those in our little Nests! This Chicken Noodle Casserole is one such act of love. It’s cozy, it’s warm, it comforting. It goes together quickly too! Which is even better for all us busy Mom and Dad’s trying to do 36 hours of work in a 24 hour day!
