  • Buffalo Chicken Casserole

    Buffalo Chicken Casserole

    I have seen this recipe posted on Facebook and Pinterest several times over the past few months.  I decided to make it two months ago and it was a hit with Mrs. Ninja.  I even had to make some the following weekend for her to take to a work potluck.  I’ve gotten tired of soup all week so I decided to make this casserole but I would chop the chicken up really small to make..


  • Poor Man’s Awesome Spaghetti Sauce

    Poor Man’s Awesome Spaghetti Sauce

    I love to make spaghetti sauce or as some call it, gravy.  When you read this, you may huff and puff when you see how I made this.  I mentioned yesterday that I am on a goal to eat cheap this week and tonight is no exception.  The commissary had some cheap sauce on sale so I decided to give it a whirl.  Here we go, off into the wild spaghetti yonder……. As you can..


  • Chicken Tacos

    Chicken Tacos

    I think that one of my favorite things to eat are quite simply, tacos.  I love a street style taco and will almost always try a new taco truck or stand that I drive by.  My favorite has to be lengua tacos.  Most Americans don’t like this and my family fits into that group.  So tonight as a part of my goal to eat cheap this week, I made chicken tacos out of the leftover..

    Who doesn’t love rotisserie chicken?  I could eat this every single week.  It’s cheap and I can almost always make a second meal out of this the next day.  Just what, that’s just what I did to this chicken but more on that later.   This is the chicken after I rubbed it down and tied it up and place it in my magical Ronco rotisserie.  I just love to set it and forget it. ..


  • Pork Chops in a Sour Cream Sauce

    Pork Chops in a Sour Cream Sauce

    I love pork chops.  There is something is just grand about the other white meat.  This dish is pretty good if you can get the sauce to turn out right.  I let mine cook a little long so it is not a pretty color but man did it taste good.   Start off with about a 1lb to 1 1/2 lbs of pork.  If you can get thick pork chops, go with that.  They turn..


  • Poor Man’s Awesome Chili

    Poor Man’s Awesome Chili

    I love chili, what can I say.  Chili makes you just feel plain awesome on any day and this weekend was no exception.  We had a rainy kind of day so I decided in all of my fine wisdom; that chili was in my future.  I call this poor man’s chili as it is pretty cheap to make, takes about 30minutes, and you have leftovers for just the next day if you are a single..
