Cooking Creations and Free Stuff!

I'm not usually one to throw things together in a pot and hope they turn out. I'm more of a recipe kind of girl. But last night I was feeling a bit creative...

We had left over steak, and I was kind of worried about reheating it since it was already a tad dry and I didn't want it to get more so...I already live in the desert, and that's about how much dryness I can take.

I know I'm not the first person to do this, but I came up with a little casserole to make. I chopped, salted and boiled some potatoes. Threw them in a casserole dish with thinly sliced steak, added Cream of Mushroom Soup and a half a cup of milk, topped it with cheese and threw it in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

The result? Quite tasty actually. The boyfriend came home from the gig and had two plates full (seconds is always a sign of success since he always tells me my cooking is delicious even when it's not).

In other news:

Didn't the title mention free stuff?

Why yes it did. This week's special is this. Buy anything in my shop and receive this Ribbed Zig Zag Headband absolutely free!

Simply type "FREE HEADBAND" in the notes to seller when you're buying your item.

As always, everything in my shop has free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada, so come on by and treat yourself to something warm and cozy as the cold winter approaches.


  1. When cooking I usually start with a recipe, but "tweak" it as I go along. Though some recipes are just to good to mess with!
    Love the headband.

  2. Cream of mushroom soup is awesome! I love experimenting with it in different recipes. Your casserole sounds like it was pretty delicious!

  3. Yummy! Great recipe! Try it with uncooked elbow macaroni, some left over chicken and toss in some shredded cheese. The trick here is to mix it up the night before in your casserole dish. When you come from work, turn your oven on, stir ingredients, I usually sprinkle some bread crumbs on top & bake.
    (The uncooked macaroni absorbs all the liquid )
