1 cup mayo
1/3 cup of sugar
2 tbs of white vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix mayo, sugar, and white vinegar. Once it’s mixed evenly add slaw mix then salt and pepper. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Easy No Bake Cheesecake (4 ingredients)

If you like no bake cheesecakes you will love this! My husband prefers the baked kind. He wasn’t impressed, but the kids and I thought it was delicious!  On a scale if 1-10 my 8 year old said it was an 11.      😉

No Bake Cheesecake

8 oz cream cheese
1 tub whipped cream
1 can condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice

Set cream cheese out til it’s soft. Mix cream cheese, condensed milk, and whipped cream with a hand mixer on low until smooth. Then, add lemon juice mix for another minute. Pour into crust. (I used a premade) Refrigerate for a few hours, and add topping if you like.

Easy Homemade Biscuits

These biscuits were so easy and these are actually the first I have made from scratch! This recipe is good for freezing. They are vegan as well.

Homemade Biscuits

2 cups self rising flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup of milk

Preheat 375°. Mix all dry ingredients. Slowly pour in melted butter and milk while stirring. When a dough ball forms, put on a floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter or knife. Bake for 15-18 minutes.

If you are freezing them, stack them on top of eachother separating with wax paper. Then, roll them up in cling wrap and put in a freezer bag. When you are ready cook them, 450° for ten minutes.

Burrito Bake

I found this recipe the other day and could not wait to try it. It was delicious!!! It was very easy to make and cheap. Altogether I spent $6 to make it, and there was plenty for us all.

Burrito Bake

8 frozen burritos
1 can rotel
1 can of cream of mushroom
8 oz of sour cream
1 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350°. Arrange frozen burritos in a casserole dish. In a separate bowl mix rotel, sour cream, and cream of mushroom. Pour mixture over burritos and top with cheese. Bake for 35-45 minutes (mine took 45) or until bubbly.

I served mine with tortilla chips but spanish rice would be my next choice. 😛

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Mac and cheese goes with so many things. You can make it as a side dish or add some meat to make it your main dish. It’s easy, you can freeze it, and it’s inexpensive. My 8 year old lives off macaroni and cheese so I make this a lot!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups elbow noodles
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups cheese

Cook noodles according to package. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix eggs, milk, butter, salt, pepper, and 1 1/2 cup of cheese. Pour over noodles in a greased casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese and bake 45 minutes.

Hamburger Hash

image

I am not a big meat eater, but this was good. It was cheap to make too! I will definitely be adding this recipe to our family menu. I hope you like it.

Hamburger Hash

1 bag of frozen potatoes (or you can substitute for cut up potatoes which is what I did this time)
1 lb hamburger meat
1 onion chopped
2 cups of shredded cheese
salt, pepper and garlic to taste
vegetable oil

Add oil to pan & begin cooking the potatoes with the salt, pepper, and garlic salt. In a separate pan brown the meat and drain. When the potatoes are almost done add the onion. Saute until the onions start getting soft. Add the hamburger meat and cheese. Sprinkle a little more salt and pepper and it’s done!

Altogether I think this took me about 30 minutes.

Minimize Diaper Pail Odors

After reading a blog on household tips on stinky garbage cans, I thought it might work on the diaper pail. I had tried everything. I emptied it twice a week, bleached it all the time, and used a ton of Lysol, but I felt like I could smell it anyway. The solution was easy and free. Newspaper! It sounds ridiculous but it worked for me.

Put a little in the bottom under the bag.

I even put some in the bag. I change the paper everytime I change the bag. It isn’t an immediate answer but I definitely noticed a difference after a couple of days.   🙂
