Chili Dogs

This is something different and yummy for your left over chili! Oven baked chili dogs (or sausages). This is so yummy and easy, there aren't even any measurements to worry about!

  • Hot Dogs or Pre-cooked Sausages
  • Hot Dog Buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • Relish (I used sweet)
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Chili (I used homemade leftover chili but you could use a good canned chili)
  • Grated Cheese
  • Diced yellow onion

The How-To:
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line your pan with tinfoil, it will make the clean up much easier.
  3. Spread mayonnaise on both sides of the hot dog bun, then spread relish and mustard on the buns.
  4. Add your hot dog to the bun (I used sausages so I halved each sausage and used one half per bun since they were pretty big!).
  5. Top each bun with diced raw yellow onion.
  6. Top each bun with chili.
  7. Top each bun with grated cheese.
  8. Cover your whole pan with tinfoil.
  9. Bake for 40 minutes at 350, and then another 2-3 on broil. You will need to eat these babies with a fork and knife!

No Bake Peanut Butter Squares

These are delicious!


1 cup butter melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9 pan.

In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring every 60 seconds until melted until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

This is one of the only recipes that will get my six year old to eat potatoes...not only does she eat them but she asks for seconds!

The Ingredients:

  • 4-5 medium sized russet potatoes, sliced
  • 1 can of Campbells Cream of Cheddar condensed soup
  • 1 1/4 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced onion (dry)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

The How-To:

  1. Slice the potatoes and layer in a 9x13 casserole dish.
  2. Mix all of the other ingredients, except the grated cheddar cheese, and pour over the potatoes.
  3. Top with grated cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake for 60-70 minutes at 350, broil for the last few minutes.

Next time I make these I think I might go as far as to add some crumbled bacon and green onion to the mix! They were absolutely delicious as is but I think these additions would be amazing!

Monster Cookies

These are a newly discovered favourite! MS had them when he was a child, and I wish I had! :). If you love peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip - these are amazing- and easy to make!


2/3 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup Peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup mini choco chips
1/2 cup smarties


First, mix the margarine and brown sugar. Then, blend in the egg and peanut butter until smooth (don't mix for very long).
Add the flour, oatmeal and baking powder and mix until blended.
Then add your chocolate chips!
I scoop the mixture with an ice cream scoop, it makes the perfect sized monster cookie; and then top your scoop with four smarties.
Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes.
