Blog This Blog That...A Short Introduction

A Little Hello
Time to get started, I suppose. First off, this probably won't be a daily blog style, more of a post as I can due to my schedule, but hopefully it'll give you a nice taste of the meals and desserts I've happily grown up with. As well as learning the ropes of how to work the blog...Be on the lookout as I'm sure formatting will continue to change.I hope to use this as a place to share some good recipes with others and learn to improve upon my own cooking skills! After all, the best way to learn is by doing, correct? As an Occupational Therapist I will say, it is important to engage in occupations that we find interesting and meaningful to help improve our everyday quality of life! It just so happens, for me, I am interested in cooking/baking, and writing (So kill two birds with one stone here!). With that all said, I welcome you here, and hope you can find a recipe or two that you throughly enjoy (and can put your own spin on). Happy food hunting :)

Ham and Broccoli Casserole

Who doesn't like a good casserole now and then? This has probably been done before, but this was sort of the first time my mom and I made this particular casserole. Really she came up with the ingredients/idea and just told me to go with it. I'm not about to turn down a chance for food experimentation! So a simple recipe that was QUITE delicious. We almost ate the entire casserole in one sitting haha.
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tsps sour cream
1 bag egg noodles
1 cup diced ham
1 bag steamed broccoli
1 can frenches fried onions

Preheat oven to about 350 degrees. Cook the bag of egg noodles as directed, rinse and drain. I use a pan that's a little bigger than I need so that I can mix the cassarole in the pot. Dice up 1 cup of cut ham (about 1/2 in cubes or so). When the noodles are done add the can of cream of mushroom soup, about 2 heaping tsps of sour cream, the diced ham, the bag of steamed broccoli (steamed of course), and shredded cheese to your liking. Mix this until well blended. Spray a cassarole pan and spread the noodle mixture evenly inside. I like to add a topping of cheese and frenches fried onions to the top. Put the cassarole in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes. Let cool a bit and then serve!

Final Thoughts
A delicious and quick recipe that my mom and I threw together quickly one night on a whim! It's quite tasty and the left overs are still delicious! Hope you enjoy! Happy eats! : D
