Tuna Noodle Casserole

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

172365ED-6AD8-42A3-AECD-D149BE28FA0FF7C135A8-0DA5-4831-937A-D15855D99955Tuna noodle casserole is something that seems to be in and out of favor with people. People either like it of hate it. If you use the standard recipes I have seen, I understand why some wouldn’t like it. We have it 7 or 8 times a year as one of our pasta meals. There is one thing I have found, never use the cheap light, flaked white tuna. You want to be able to bite into a piece of tuna not have it as mush mixed in with everything else. Forget how long we have been making it this way, so let’s just say a lot of years

3 cups of macaroni

Salt & pepper

extra virgin olive oil

2 can of solid white tuna in water

1 can of mushroom soup

1 medium onion diced

2 ribs of celery diced 1/4 in rings

1/2 cup diced red pepper

Another Simple Stir Fry

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

A stir fry is something that I make often and works great for a quick meal. I can get everything cut up before I go out for lunch. The rice I can make this morning and just reheat it in the microwave. When I get home just have to add the marinade to the chicken and head out to pick my wife up at our daughters. It will be after 5 when we get home, but the beauty of a stir fry is cooking time is just 10 minutes. So just a few things and a sauce and some rice and you have a very good supper. The other nice thing about a stir fry is that it is fun to cook. Cooking times will vary depending on how thick you cut…

Chili is one of my favorite things to eat. I am making it today. Played with different thing in it over the years. Mushrooms was one thing I tried and liked, but the rest of my family didn’t. So since I cook for them I have made it this way for over 20 years. I use different types of chili’s in it because each one hits different taste buds on your tongue. Just using “chili powder” only hits the taste buds on the front of your tongue. My goal was to hit all my taste buds. There is a surprise I have added when ever I could find it or remembered to get it. It is still a great chili without it.

2 pounds lean ground beef ( you can use ground pork, chicken, or turkey, or a mixture. )

3 tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon cumin

Cashew Chicken

What's for Dinner Moms?

I always think of Asian food as a sneaky way to add more vegetables not only to my meals but the kids too. I tend to eat more when they are mixed into something than if they are served on their own. I would not choose peppers or broccoli (unless it had cheese on it) on its own but in a dish like this I gobble it up.


Most dishes with an Asian flair are going to be a hit in our house. This is a saucy dish as I serve it with rice noodles (which my daughter prefers over regular or brown rice). If you don’t like your dishes as sauce cut the sauce ingredients in half. Our motto is we would rather have too much sauce than not enough. I can strain the chicken and vegetables out of the sauce but cannot create more sauce instantly once…

Layered chickpea salad

Cooking on pages 32–33

I checked this out of the library because I found the concept intriguing. Even though glass is breakable this would be a great way to take a meal to work or to leave in the fridge for a rushed day.

Almost all of the recipes serve four and they cover breakfasts, salads, soups, desserts, preserves and sauce, and juices and smoothies.

I love salad and pages 32–33 delivered.

Quesadilla Tricks

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

I was in the grocery store picking up things to make pizza for supper, ran into a friend and his wife. They follow my blog and commented on my Quesadilla post. His wife had tried making them both my way and the fold over way. She said with the fold over style the tortilla was crisp but the filling wasn’t melted, by the the the filling melted the tortilla was burnt. With my way everything fell apart when she tried to flip it, so they never tried again. They both really like them but they thought they were way to hard to make at home. I asked exactly how they had made them, seen the problem and explained exactly what went wrong. They understand and are going to make quesadillas for supper. When I got home I read my original post and realized that why they failed was my fault…

Chicken Quesadilla For Valentine’s Day

How I Cook — by Graham Stewart

5B8ECB4B-BCB7-4FB4-9962-4609B8986615My wife loves chicken quesadillas, she asks for me to make them everytime we have leftover chicken. Still remember the first time she had one, it was in a restaurant in Calgary with our niece Dianne. Will admit I do enjoy making them but I prefer fajitas over quesadillas. It’s Valentine’s Day so it’s what my wife likes that wins the day, as it should be. Normally I use leftover chicken but don’t have any, so just cooked 2 chicken breast and used them. Everything else I had in the fridge so no trip to the store. There easy to make as long as you have the proper sized frying pan. Since I have made them before the recipe is posted April 5,2019. I don’t make the fold over type many because I like the challenge of flipping it. It’s a way easier to make it doing the fold over…
