Warm up with these hearty, family-tested meals from Lisa's Kitchen!
  • Baked potato soup

    The Machine Shed restaurant makes an amazing baked potato soup ... and here is the recipe! It takes regular potato soup to the next level with bacon, celery, and onions, and is perfect for a cool evening. The recipe makes a big batch, so you'll have plenty to pour into containers for lunch the next day.

  • Cranberry slow-cooker turkey

    Prepare your taste buds for the most delicious turkey you will ever eat! And when you see how easy it is, you'll make it all the time instead of saving it for the holidays. The best part of this recipe is that your slow cooker does all the work. Prefer pork? No problem ... this recipe translates very well to pork loin.

  • Chicken pot pie

    Chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food. The good news is that it's also really easy to make! Mix leftover cooked chicken with canned or frozen vegetables and some cream soup, top with refrigerated crescent dough, and that's it! With a recipe this easy, there's no need to wait for the weekend to serve chicken pot pie to your hungry family!

  • Turkey popper burgers

    There's a spicy, creamy surprise waiting inside these seasoned turkey burgers ... a jalapeno popper! Learn how to make the poppers and the meat mixture, put them together, and throw them on the grill. These would also be great for tailgating before a football game. Make them up at home, pop them in the cooler, and grill them up in the parking lot. Cheers!<P>

  • Vegetable-bean soup

    Welcome to soup season! It's easy to make, smells amazing simmering away on the stove, and is great comfort food for cool evenings. One thing I love about soup -- especially vegetable soup -- is that you can really make it however you want. Here's a great basic recipe, but use the vegetables and beans you like best!

  • Chicken cordon bleu casserole

    Chicken cordon bleu is an amazing dish, but it's fairly time consuming to make and can be pretty tricky. This incredibly tasty casserole takes all the work out of chicken cordon bleu, but gives you all the flavor. Even better, it freezes like a dream! It doesn't take much more time at all to make two pans of the casserole. Bake one and freeze one, and next time dinner will be a breeze!

  • Mini meatloaves

    When the temperatures dip, meatloaf is always welcome on the menu! These cheesy miniature versions cook faster, and kids go crazy for them! They also freeze very well, so make a double batch and make it easy on yourself next time you need a meatloaf fix!

  • Chicken and noodles

    Nothing says "home" like chicken and noodles. Making your own noodles may seem intimidating at first, but once you see how easy and fun it is, and how delicious the results are, you'll never use store-bought noodles again!

  • Sweet corn-sausage chowder

    Sweet and savory flavors go so well together, and that's what makes this chowder so special. Use the sweetest corn you can find, and sausage as spicy as you like, and you won't be able to put down your spoon!

  • Swiss-mushroom soup

    This delicious soup has a Swiss cheese base, so it's much lighter-tasting than cheddar-based soups. The mushrooms taste amazing, and the potatoes add just enough body to the soup. Enjoy!

  • Catfish nuggets

    Catfish nuggets are a restaurant favorite, but any health benefits you might get from the fish are pretty much washed away by the frying. Believe it or not, you can make them taste just as good, if not better, by coating them in seasoned crumbs and baking them. Here's how.
