    Broccoli Casserole

    I had the honor to check out No More Pizza! and do a review on it. It’s by far one of the most unique cook “books” I have ever seen. The recipes are AMAZING and the presentation is sure to bring a huge smile to everyone’s face.

    This makes a great gift for college students (great graduation gift!), for a young adult starting out on his/her own or even a newly married couple.

    I give No More Pizza! two thumbs up!

  3. Jon Says:

    This blog post reminded me how much I love my mom’s cooking, there’s so many things to name so I will just go by coarse.

    Mom’s homemade spinach and artichoke dip
    with homemade tortilla chips

    Main Coarse: Yummy homemade chicken burgers. I’ve been wondering for years how she makes these burgers so amazingly. Taco spice in the ground chicken. Their simply amazing on the BBQ as well.

    Delicious Apple Crip with vanilla ice cream on top. It just speaks for itself

  4. Sonia Says:

    I love Sunday’s when we invite the family over, play games and BBQ. I guess BBQ is not a ‘mom made meal’ but it reminds me of home and my family. :)

  5. Diane S. Says:

    My mom used to make a unique Baked Macaroni & Cheese dish. I am glad I learned how to make it just like she did. It’s so good.

  6. Trin Says:

    The name of our family’s favorite Mom’s Made dish is ( well it’s hard to choose just one) broccoli casserole. It’s the one we tend to fight over.

  7. Melinda Says:

    How am I supposed to choose just one??? I can’t so I’ll give three:
    *pork chops in a golden mushroom sauce over rice
    *homemade pizza she makes every New Year’s Eve
    *spicy black eyed peas she makes every New Year’s Day

  8. Abbie Says:

    My mom makes the best pot roast! I love when I go home to visit and I walk in the house and I can smell the pot roast cooking in the kitchen!

  9. Trisha Says:

    Fav MOM recipe – Minestrone soup ..MMM YUM

    Enjoyed reviewing your Mama Says No More Pizza at 24/7 MOMS so fun, creative and awesome recipes.

    Love the apron Jason is wearing today….We cant wait for him to wear our 24/7 MOMS shirt in January Wont he look amazing in it?

  10. kat Says:

    I love that you’re spreading the “easy food isn’t fast food” message.

    My favorite among my mom’s dishes growing up was her brisket. Always flavorful, the right balance between moist & flaky, and filling!

  11. Cherie Says:

    My mom makes these awesome burittos. They are our favorite.

  12. wendy Says:

    when my mom made dinner on a sunday, she really went all out. we had theme dinners complete with ambiance, mood music and decorations. i love her spaghetti and meatballs served on the red and white gingham tablecloth with a candle dripping colorful wax down the side of that wine bottle holding it. she was awesome.

  13. Hannah Says:

    My mother was such a good cook that it’s hard to decide, but I always really looked forward to her chicken fricassee.
    I came here via Jason and just signed up to follow you on twitter. :)

  14. alina Says:

    Why is he holding a GIANT knife??

  15. Crystal Says:

    My favorite was always my mom’s take on hamburger macaroni. She didn’t believe in any meal that came out of a box. :)

  16. Kim aka @ShoppingKim Says:

    I have to admit I am a fan of frozen pizza, but my favorite sit-down meal growing up was pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy and homemade buns. My mouth is drooling just thinking about it!

  17. Bekah Says:

    This book sounds phenomenal! I’ll definitely have to check it out!

    I will forever love my mom’s cooking, although picking just one dish that is over all the rest is impossible. My favorites are her pot roast, spinach and bacon breakfast casserole, and her pecan pie (can that count as a meal?).

  18. Gina McNew Says:

    What a fun and fabulous concept ladies. BRAVO!!! Now that my daughter has moved out I get lots of those phone calls. It’s been fun helping her to feather the nest of her own kitchen with tools of the trade.
    As to my own Mama’s cooking…by far and a way Sunday’s were always my favorite as that was always pasta and her home made sauce. She’d start the pot of sauce first thing in the morning before heading to church. To tie us over until dinner we would get to have some of the sauce and maybe a meatball or two over bread for lunch. I just loved the way the house smelled all Sunday long. Thanks for inviting the memory with your contest.

  19. Karin Says:

    My Mom wasn’t much of a cook, but she would always make us chicken a la king and it was so yummy! I always remembered it’s unique flavor when I was a kid.
    I love to cook and when I was older I decided I wanted to make chicken a la king. So I went through my cookbooks and tried every recipe for it, but couldn’t duplicate her unique flavor. So one day I called her and asked for her recipe. I was shocked when she told me it was mushrooms, black olives, pimentos, chicken, 2 large cans of cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 a bottle of sherry.
    I told you she wasn’t much of a cook. :)

  20. AverageJane Says:

    Easy! Apple pie was our family favorite. My birthday was the day after my grandpa’s and his birthday request was ALWAYS apple pie. Mom and I would spend the day together making that pie – and the best part was getting to decide what design we’d poke into the top. Who says apple pie isn’t a meal? :)

  21. CaseyDeuce Says:

    My mom wasn’t the best cook in the world- once she made a turkey… it was still frozen in the middle. But my favorite thing that she makes is macaroni salad from my great grandmothers recipe!

  22. TeraLea Says:

    My mom didn’t really have a signature dish, but she was always great at combining leftovers into edible goodness. She never wasted food and to this day I still appreciate her creativity in the kitchen. It would sometimes look questionable but it somehow was always good :)

  23. Valerie Hoe Says:

    Okay, now I was stumped for a minute. But then I had this brilliant thought. Any meal with mashed potatoes was by far my favorite from mom. Meatloaf and mashed potatoes, chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes, chicken and mashed potatoes, pork chops and mashed potatoes. See the trend? To this day, it’s still a comfort food. Yum!

  24. Valerie Hope Says:

    Oh geez- I so put Valerie Hoe. I feel so dumb. How do I edit that? Lol.

  25. Jacqueline Says:

    Im from a hispanic family so my favorite dish would either be tacos or arroz con pollo. My mom makes the best tacos!

  26. Karen Kay Says:

    Aunt Sheila’s Quick and Easy Chocolate Cake.

    My Mom’s Aunt Sheila would have been born in the early 1900′s, so I guess to her the 45 minutes it takes to make this cake from scratch was quick. It is not as easy as a Duncan Hines cake mix, either, but it is delicious and I have never tasted anything like it anywhere except from Mom’s kitchen.

    Best way to describe it might be kinda like Mississippi Mud Cake without the marshmallows.

    Best way to eat it? Warm from the oven topped with homemade vanilla ice cream. Yum!

  27. Wes Wyatt Says:

    My Mom makes Cheese Sticks that are INCREDIBLE!

    I don’t know the exact steps for making em’ – but I know she cuts rectangles (Think of a BIG French Fry) out of unsliced loaves of bread. Then she blends up Old English Cheese Spread and Spreadable Butter. She would then coat all 6 sides of the Bread Stick and bake em’ until they were crunchy on the outside.

    Are they good for you? NOPE!!! But they are YUMMY!

    Have a DYNAMITE day!

  28. Digi Says:

    It’s great when a special recipe gets passed along from generation to generation. My kids now long for and get giddy when they know we are preparing Baked Bannana Pudding! The same recipe my mom made for me and also Her mom made for her. My mouth is longing for it now!

  29. siggo Says:

    my mom also uses an old recipe, for making cabbage rolls with this tomato paste and rice and meat in the middle. very good!

  30. JCizle Says:

    My great grandmother’s recipe for baked mac and cheese was my childhood favorite and still is today. It wasn’t until I was an adult when the women of my family passed down granny’s specific instructions that I realized all the love that went into making this comfort food… especially in today’s world were most people think mac and cheese comes in a blue box.

    A four cheese delight that’s no friend of your waistline, so you only make it every once in a while. Now that I’m grown and make it for friends and family… whenever some see me, it’s all they can talk about! To be honest… my attempts don’t even come close to granny’s! That’s how great it was.

  31. Belinda Jane Says:

    My momma is not a good cook. Most everything she made was gross, except for her Salmon Croquettes and Southern Style Hushpuppies. The only two dishes I would give a thumbs up… I appreciate the fact that momma couldn’t cook. That is the number 1 reason I learned how…and I’m a pretty good cook thanks to the myriad of cookbooks and all the little old ladies at my church.

  32. Elaine Says:

    My mom’s turkey chili is amazing.

    Good luck to you ladies! Love the concept of your book.

  33. playwanda Says:

    Favorite dish was my moms Thanksgiving turkey stufffing

  34. Rayven Cure Says:

    My grandmother’s Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed potatoes, and green beans. Yummmm!

  35. KD Says:

    Used to love it when Mom would make CityChicken is was amazing!! Still head over to her house when she makes it.

  36. April Says:

    My mother’s beef strew…. it only contained Meat,
    Potatoes, and Carrots… but it tastes so good!

  37. Erik A Says:

    Chicken a la King

  38. Michael Murdock Says:

    Frozen Pizza is for Wimps! A real pizza lover will pull together all sorts of wonderful things and take time to make a true masterpiece.

    I create roasted garlic, fresh tomato sauce which is not from a can or a jar, using only the nicest tomatoes, the sauce is simmered for more than3 hours and then cooled, and applied to the dough.

    My dough I make from scratch and let it rise just right, then beat it down smooth it out onto my stone and let it sit for 10 minutes to raise up just enough before I put on my sauces, garlic, fresh cut cheeses, and veggies.

    Okay, now that Iama hungry…It’s time to EAT!!




  39. shutts67 Says:

    My favorite thing my mom made was pot roast. It had gravy and egg noodles and it was awesome!!

  40. Jill Hayes Says:

    Sliced Beef Gravy over toast

  41. mary ann schmeelke Says:

    One of my favorites was my Ma’s chicken and dumplings. For dessert she would make shortcake with homemade bisquik biscuits and tiny berries from the field.

  42. Jason Sadler Says:

    My favorite recipe actually comes from my Grama if that’s allowed? She makes these caramel/cinnamon bunt rolls. They take about 24 hours to make with sitting time, cooking and enjoying.


  43. Denise Says:

    Every year since I was a little girl, my mom would make a chocolate torte for my birthday and cheesecake for my brother, Chicken Cordon Bleu for me on Christmas Eve, lasagna for my brother on Christmas Day, and lobster and steak for my dad on New Year’s Day. We wait ALL year long for those dinners…not that they are that hard to make, but because they are tradition, we hold out for December! My kids love ANYTHING Nana makes, but mostly her desserts. No better cook than MY MAMA! She has even been featured in several cookbooks…mmmmm.

  44. Jimmy McGrath Says:

    My mom always makes a fantastic home made chicken noodle soup during the winter. It really is amazing idk what see puts in it but i want her to teach me how. From what i can tell see puts in other than chicken and noodles see will put in a variety of spices and other vegetables. Whatever it consists of its great and love it a ton.

  45. Kelani I. Feliciano Says:

    My Mama’s Pumpkin Crunch makes the Holidays “the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”
    Note: It’s already Autumn, pumpkins are almost in season, and the Holidays are around the corner! Mmm!

  46. Wendy Says:

    My favorite meal that my mother used to cook was Mexican Tacos over potatoes. Mmmm mmm good. They tasted even better as leftovers!

  47. Michele Says:

    Growing up and till this day, Sunday afternoon dinners are the most memorable. My favorite – roast pork loin, gravy (scratch, not canned), mashed potatoes (no lumps), salad, homemade apple sauce, carrots sprinkled with parsley, and always that one random item that never made it to the table.

  48. Maria Says:

    My mom makes the best funeral potatoes. THE best. I swear it. They were the best. If you haven’t tried these potatoes, you are missing out.

  49. Dave Says:

    My favorite meal was my mom’s “pigs in a blanket” – which was stuffed cabbage rolls. The meatballs had bread crunbs and rice and whatever her other secret’s were, and lot’s of TLC. The sauce was to die for. I can smell them cooking just remembering them, but haven’t had them in years.

  50. Sally Says:

    My mama made me Ginger’s Beef Casserole – minced beef in a creamy sauce with noodles baked in the oven. The ULTIMATE comfort food. I make it now I’m a Mama too!

  51. Debra Says:

    My mom has two specialites – Beef Vegetable Soup and Red Velvet Cake, but it is her soup that is #1. Her Beef Vegetable Soup is chock full of all kinds of vegetables and enough meet to ensure that when it falls apart, you get meat with every serving. In the winter time, it really warms you up. If you are sick, it helps you to feel so much better. Any time of year, it is fantastic!

  52. Caron Says:

    My mom made the BEST caesar salad dressing from scratch. She even shared her recipe as I got older and it’s fairly easy. Delish! I remember it growing up. Her other meals…not so much!

  53. Cathy Says:

    My mom’s signature dish has to be her Chicken Parprikash. It is delicious!

  54. Kadie Says:

    Baked pork chops with honey and brown sugar, glazed baby carrots, homemade mashed potatoes and cornbread. Mmmmmmm. My moms moved to Florida now (I live in VA) so I reallyyyyy miss that Sunday dinner.

  55. Daniel Says:

    I liked everything my mom cooked! I got all my skills in the kitchen from her!

  56. Mary Says:

    Oxtail soup is my favorite meal my Mom made.

  57. Cody Strawn Says:

    Chicken and dumplins for the win brah!
