making a spam musubi (by roboppy)

In Hawaii, we add spam to everything from stews to soups even sweet desserts.

We eat more than four million cans every year or an average twelve cans of Spam per person per year. That’s more than anywhere else in the world. Hawaii is so well associated with Spam, Hormel introduced a limited edition “Hawaii” can in 2003.

Lasagna Roll Ups with Spinach Stuffing

Posted on

All things you love about lasagna with a twist; spinach and sauce, plus three kinds of cheesiness, all rolled up into one perfect bundle. The best part, its simple and cheap to make.
  • 1 lb. lasagna noodles
  • 15 oz. ricotta
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 lg. egg
  • 10 oz. frozen spinach
  • 2½ cups marinara sauce
  • to taste salt and pepper
  • as needed non-stick spray
  1. Cook lasagna noodles until al dente (soft but not soggy… about 12-15 minutes). When they are finished cooking, drain in a colander.
  2. While the noodles are boiling, prepare the filling. Combine the spinach in a bowl with the ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, egg, freshly grated pepper and about ¼ tsp of salt. Mix until well combined.
  3. When the noodles and filling are ready to go, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a glass casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  4. Lay out a few noodles at a time. Place a few tablespoons of filling on each noodle and spread to cover from edge to edge. Make sure to spread it all the way to the edges of the noodles.
  5. Roll the noodles up and place in the casserole dish. Pour the marinara sauce over the rolled noodles making sure to cover all surfaces. The sauce will keep the noodles hydrated and soft while baking.
  6. Cover the dish in foil and bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot or divide into individual portions and refrigerate.

One Dish Chicken Dinner

Posted on

Found this easy recipe on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try. I made couple changes to the recipe, as the original recipe called for 1 whole stick of butter. (I felt was way to much) Using 3 tablespoons is a good amount; a healthier option is drizzling olive or truffle oil. I also used Ranch dressing seasoning instead of Italian.

This one dish meal is so simple, cheap and delicious! The chicken is moist and full of flavor. Just put everything in the same dish and bake, you can’t mess it up!

4 chicken breast
About 1 1/2 pounds of cubed red potatoes
Fresh or frozen green beans, about 14 oz
1 pkt of Italian dressing seasoning or Ranch dressing seasoning
3 T of butter, cubed (Substitute drizzling olive oil or truffle oil)

Lay chicken down the middle of a 9×13 baking dish. Lay potatoes and green beans along side of the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle Italian seasoning over everything and top with cubes of butter. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
