Tater Tot Casserole


Ever get home after a busy day and think, “what in the world am I going to make for supper?” Well, this meal is fairly quick to make, very filling, and you will have plenty of  leftovers for tomorrow!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 bag mixed veggies (carrots, green beans, corn, peas)
    • you can use fresh or canned
  • 1 large can cream of mushroom
  • 1 bag frozen tater tots
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Brown ground beef, drain fat.
  3. Cook mixed veggies according to directions on bag. If you use canned veggies, they won’t need cooked. I personally like the frozen mixed veggies that you can just pop in the microwave and steam for 8 minutes.
  4. In 9×13 glass baking dish, add meat, veggies, and cream of mushroom. Mix well. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan and add a layer of  tater tots on top. You can add as many or as few as you like. This is what mine looks like:tatertotcasserolebeforecheese
  5. Bake for 35 minutes of until tater tots are golden brown.
  6. Add cheese on top. Bake for another 5-10 minutes. When your cheese is melted, it’s ready!
  7. Enjoy!

Tartar Sauce –  Only 3 Ingredients! 


My husband is super picky about his tartar sauce. When we first started dating, I remember he didn’t like the store bought tartar sauce, so he made his own. Nine years later, and he still makes his own!

I have to give him credit though, this recipe is so easy and so much tastier than the store bought!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise  (I like the mayo made with olive oil, but regular will work too!)
  • 1/4 Cup Dill Relish
  • 1/2 Tbsp Mustard


  1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together.
  2. Enjoy!

See? Super easy! Please like, share, and pin this post if you enjoyed it too!

Mom’s Simple Spaghetti


Growing up, we ate spaghetti a lot. My parents both worked and spaghetti was always a quick, easy, and nutritious go-to meal.  Plus, Mom always made a lot, so we had leftovers for the next nights meal 🙂


  • 1lbs Ground Beef
  • 2 cans Hunts Four Cheese spaghetti sauce
  • 1 package spaghetti noodles
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning


  1. Boil noodles in large pot. Once cooked (about 7-10 minutes) drain noodles and return to pot (heat off).
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium pan, brown ground beef and 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning. Drain.
  3. In the large pot, add together:
    1. Noodles
    2. Beef
    3. Sauce
    4. 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  4. Simmer on low, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes, or until spaghetti is hot.


Just a note. I like to pair mine with garlic bread 🙂 And, as mentioned above, this is almost better leftover!
