Pierogi Beef Skillet


I tried a new recipe tonight, and it was a hit! Well, Sean only ate one bite, but whatever...D and I liked it! :) Not only was it good, but it was quick and easy to throw together. It's also budget-friendly; it cost me less than $10 to make the entire dish. I'll have to make sure I keep the ingredients on hand for this one.

Funny side note - before serving it, I grabbed my camera to take a quick picture. Every time I start taking pictures of food, D just rolls his eyes and laughs at me! He'd really laugh at me if he knew that I'd love to start plating the food on fancy dishes and setting a "scene" to try to make the pictures look more like the ones in magazines and books, LOL!!

Pierogi Beef Skillet

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 can (14.5 oz) beef broth
1 pkg (16 oz) frozen cheese and potato pierogies, thawed
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and drained
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain, reserving 3 Tbsp drippings. Sprinkle flour over beef and drippings; stir until blended. Gradually add beef broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Stir in the pierogies, vegetables and seasonings. Cook, uncovered for 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Makes 4 servings.

Katy's notes: I use the lean ground beef, so I didn't have any drippings. I just added the flour to the beef in the pan, then added the broth. Also, before cooking the meat, I browned the pierogies in a little oil. It wasn't really necessary, but I wanted to, lol. When serving, I completely forgot the cheese! It was good without it, but maybe I can remember it the next time!

Enjoy!!

Homemade Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I recently professed my love of coffee and fancy coffee drinks.  After the success of the Peppermint Mocha , I decided to tackle the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one of my favorites.  According to the Starbucks website, it has flavors of "cinnamon, butter and brown sugar".  Well, I covered the cinnamon and brown sugar components, but left out the butter.  And you know what, I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself!  I honestly wasn't sure if the cinnamon flavor in the syrup was going to be strong enough, but it was.  I will admit to being impatient and not letting it steep for very long, so the cinnamon flavor might develop more if you do actually let it sit and cool off first.  If you wanted it to be even stronger, you could always add a tiny bit of cinnamon oil to it as well.  But be careful -- a little of that goes a long way! How much to make depends on how much you'll actually use.  I just made a single batch this first time, but considering

Thick and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I admit, I love snickerdoodles.   Cinnamon and vanilla?   Yes, please.   What’s funny is that I never really had them much as a kid, just occasionally in the school cafeteria.   I know, ew. Anyway, snickerdoodles were one of the first cookies that the Munchkin helped make when he was little.   He could help dump everything in the mixer (or “loud noise” as he would call it!) and then it was fun for him to roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar before putting them on the baking sheet. Even since then, my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles has been this one by Emeril.   It’s a great recipe, baking up a thin, crispy cookie (at least when I make them!).   However, I was looking for something different this time, something thicker and chewier.   I found this recipe from the blog How Sweet it Is .   I decided to try it, and while I did keep the ingredient list the same I changed up the method a bit to suit me better.   The result?   What I was looking for – thick and

Chewy Ginger Snaps

Sit down.  No really, I mean it.  There are 12 weeks until Christmas.  Seriously.  Get out your calendar and count if you don't believe me!  Do you know how I know this?  Because I'm participating in the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies this year.  It's hosted by April of Abby Sweets .  And there's a linky thing to all the other cookie posts  down at the bottom of this post.  Or at least there's supposed to be.  ;) Aside from being horrible at time management and also being a huge procrastinator, want to know what my biggest problem has been?  Narrowing down what cookies I'm going to make!  There are just so many choices out there.  I decided to start with this recipe for Chewy Ginger Snaps. I got this recipe many years ago off an online parenting message board, and I've made it several times since then and adjusted the recipe slightly.  I'm sure there are several recipes out there, and I'm just not certain of the original source.  I quite often m
