Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

I had to laugh when I started to prepare this post and realized that I served the same green beans with the Pork Scallopini – guess that tells you how much we like them and how often we have them! Here is a little tutorial for one of our favorite casseroles, Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, along with Acorn Squash and of course the ever-popular Seasoned Green Beans.

Acorn Squash

Last winter we had some of my husband’s friends over for dinner and I served acorn squash. They had no idea what it was, but once they tried it, they loved it. I was grown and married before I ever ate acorn squash, and I realize I am probably not alone. There are probably a lot of folks out there who have never eaten it, much less prepared it. It’s really easy to make and it is delicious. Here is a little tutorial for acorn squash.

Seasoned Green Beans

This is one of the sides that we eat regularly. I’ve made it here using fresh green beans, but I often use frozen beans (petite green beans work well). Get started by washing the beans, snapping the ends off, and breaking them in half.

Layered One Dish Supper

This one dish meal is perfect for a cold winter night and can be made in a slow cooker if you prefer. Allow at least 3 hours for baking time if cooking in the oven and 7-8 hours if cooking in a slow cooker on high.

Tasty Pepperoni and Tortellini Treats

Over the holidays we visited with a friend who served these fantastic little appetizers. Not only were they tasty, but they are easy to make. You could do many different variations, but this is the version I made. I had bulk ingredients, so I am guessing on the amounts here, but you can nibble on any leftover ingredients.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Of all of the dishes that I make, this creamy chicken enchilada dish is the one for which I get the most recipe requests. I have Terri J. to thank for introducing me to the idea of white enchiladas over 15 years ago. I loved hers and I’ve been making them ever since. I made a huge batch (12 pans) for a group of CYT Fredericksburg theater kids over the summer during a long day of shows and they were a huge hit. I’ve tweaked the recipe over the years and this is the way I currently make them.
