I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Not Your Momma's Hamburger Helper

Jalapeño cheddar and some chili powder balanced with sweet baked beans make this meat mac and cheese flavourful while still being simple to make.

1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup shredded onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 - 2 tbsps chili powder
1 - 28 oz (796 ml) can diced tomatoes
1 - 13 oz (398 ml) can baked beans
1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded jalapeño cheddar cheese

Start cooking the macaroni, then in a large oven-safe skillet brown the beef breaking it up until no pink remains, Add the onion and garlic and cook to just lightly golden. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes and beans along with chili powder to taste. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes remove from heat. Add the cooked and drained macaroni and 1 cup of cheese and stir together. Then top with the remaining cheese.

Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes.

Serves 6
