This is the Lazy Wife's Beef Stroganoff recipe that I made for Jason and myself the other night. It's delicious, super easy, not incredibly messy, and a fabulous comfort food! It's not that great for you, but if you're craving beef strog it's a much healthier alternative.
1 lb lean ground beef (mine wasn't incredibly lean... 85/15)
1 can cream of mushroom
1 packet lipton's onion soup mix
1 bag egg noodles
6 oz. water + extra, seperated
6 oz. 1% or skim milk
S & P to taste
Barely cover the bottom of a skillet with water, brown and break up ground beef into crumbles. When ground beef is completely browned, remove from pan and rinse.
Meanwhile, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a pasta pot. Cook egg noodles according to directions.
Using the same skillet as before, pour in cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, 6 oz. of water, and 6 oz. of milk over medium heat. Whisk until all of the chunks from the cream of mushroom soup are gone. Cover until simmering.
Once the sauce is simmering, put meat back into sauce. Cover and allow to continue to simmer, stirring occasionally. Season with S & P to taste.
When egg noodles are done, drain and cover with meat sauce. Serve!

Ok, for one, I know I haven't been on in a while. Marriage is crazy, and we're still getting settled in! My parents and IL's have been guardian angels for my husband and myself, and we have yet to have to go grocery shopping since we got back from our honeymoon. So, I've been coming up with concoctions with whatever we already have so we don't have to spend any extra money. I have a great digital camera, and I really should have been taking pictures (especially when I made lazy wife's beef strog and low fat oven fried chicken) but I really just wanted to spend time with my dh instead. So shoot me. =P
Anyway, all of the stuff I've been creating since I started this blog in April has been delicious, but soooo fattening! I don't have a lot of weight to lose, but I want to get a grip on it before it snowballs and I end up as big as the side of a house.
So... Full Hearts, Full Tummies is now a low fat/low cal food blog! I refuse to make watered down, bland versions of the things I love in full fat form, so you can bet that anything I post on here are going to be the successful low fat interpretations of the things I already know and love.
I'm definately going to try to post more... As if anybody reads these anyway =P

This is a recipe that I tweaked from what was originally Paula Deen's peach cobbler recipe. (View Paula's recipe here.) The only thing I did differently is instead of using self rising flour, I used bisquick instead because that was all I had! The breading ended up being amazingly cakey and fluffy and soaked up the juices from the peaches and berries beautifully.
For the filling (where this recipe differs), follow Paula's directions for preparing the peaches. When I made this recently, I threw my berries in with the peaches and they really didn't hold up as well as I had hoped they would and lost some of their color and flavor. It still tasted AMAZING, but I found on PW's blog where she just tossed them in sugar and lemon juice and threw them into the baking dish without cooking them down beforehand, so next time I'm going to try that.
I used a mixture of raspberries and blueberries for mine (about half of a bag from Walmart of each) but you could use whatever you fancy! Also, I used frozen berries because the fresh ones weren't looking so hot at the grocery store, but no doubt some nice fresh berries would be even better.
Heed my advice: if you do decide to use frozen, be sure to bake them frozen without thawing them out. They hold up better in the long run that way! Don't ask me why =)
Also, this is DELICIOUS fresh (note the caramelization on top of the cakey stuff- it provides a nice little crunch on top!), but can be successfully reheated in the microwave and the filling tastes better the next day, IMO.

Yay! We're moved in and I figured the easiest way to grocery shop would be to schedule a week in advance. That way I could watch the papers for coupons and save some money...

Oven Fried Tilapia with Crash Hot Potatoes and salad (Oven Fried Tilapia - BHG cookbook, Crash Hot Potatoes - PW @ Pioneer Woman Cooks!)

Celeste at Sugar & Spice (link on the right!) tagged me for a meme! Hers is the first foodie blog I ever fell in love with, and I still look up to her for her mad chef skillz! So here goes...
What was I doing ten years ago?
10 years ago I was 12. I was in the 6th grade and had just begun to really embrace my inner artist. That year I really explored my creativity and came to think of myself as an artist, rather than someone who liked to draw or paint occasionally.
What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today?

2. Hopefully pack up some of my clothes and personal items

4. Put together our new vacuum!
Five snacks I enjoy:
1. Diet Coke with EVERYTHING
3. A big fresh hunk of french bread with some butter

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. Quit working and start my own business
2. Travel all over the world
3. Have a big, beautiful, sunny studio where I can draw and paint and create all day
4. Have a weddingmoon instead of this 3 ring circus known as my wedding.
5. have a gourmet kitchen full of amazing pots and pans, 5 different kinds of ovens, and a fridge full of fresh produce to make wonderful meals for my family
Places I've lived:
1. Leeds, AL
2. Birmingham, AL
3. Savannah, GA
4. Jacksonville, AL
Jobs I've had:
1. Part Time ASSistant Manager - Janie and Jack
