Chicken Shepherd’s Pie

I’m always amazed at the infinite possibilities for chicken, potatoes and carrots to be combined in a recipe.  This variation is worthy of being repeated often.

If you have cooked chicken stashed away in your freezer, you’re only minutes away from having this dish oven-ready.  (See this post for tips on cooking and freezing chicken.)  Using left-over or instant mashed potatoes speeds things up even more.

My boys loved this recipe and feasted on several helpings each.  Here’s what you’ll need to make it for your family: [Read more…]

Hamburger Stroganoff

This is a guest post from Ashley at AP Freewriting 101. If you are interested in guest posting on Eat at Home, contact me with your ideas.

I have a LOT on my plate during any given day:

  • Taking care of my kids: 23mo boy and 3.5yo girl
  • Working on my school work as I attempt to complete a two-year Masters degree program in one-year
  • Homeschooling my advanced preschooler
  • Blogging encouragement to women
  • Attempting to keep my house clean and my husband fed

By the time dinner rolls around, I’m pretty beat. I don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen at the end of a tiring day, and yet I don’t want to pay a hefty price for carry-out food. My solution? Quick, easy, and inexpensive pantry meals. [Read more…]
