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!

Deluxe Homemade Hamburger Helper

This deluxe hamburger helper features lean ground beef and lots of veggies, without a bunch of things you can't pronounce like what's in the packaged stuff.


2 cups egg noodles

1 lb lean ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped or sliced

1/2 red bell pepper cubed

3 tsps minced garlic

2 cups (6 oz) fresh green beans, cut in half

1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 cup flour

2 cups beef broth

black pepper to taste

1 1/2 tsps white truffle oil (optional)


Start cooking the egg noodles as per package directions.

Now, on medium high heat brown the beef for 5-7  minutes, breaking it up as it cooks. There may still be a small amount of pink showing when you add the onion, bell pepper and green beans. Cover and cook on medium 8-10 minutes. The meat should now be cooked through. Add the garlic, worcestershire, oregano and black pepper. Make a well in the center and add 1 cup broth whisking in the flour.

Add the rest of the broth and stir together, cooking for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Drain the cooked noodles and add to the pan stirring to coat.
Remove from heat, and if using, stir in the truffle oil.
Serves 4
