Hawaiian Haystacks


This is our favorite family go-to meal. Adam loves this and it’s so easy to make. [Except we never have as many toppings because Adam hates anything healthy :)] This recipe is all about the sauce. Everything else is pretty self-explanatory.


  • 2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 2 cups of chicken


  1. Boil chicken.
  2. Use 1 cup of the chicken broth and mix with cans of soup.
  3. Shred or cut chicken into cubes and add to sauce
  4. Serve over rice
  5. Add toppings


  • cheese
  • chow mein noodles
  • pineapples
  • celery
  • green onions
  • bell pepper
  • tomatoes
  • almonds
  • coconut
    (these are all suggestions, you can add or experiment how you'd like)

Anneli’s Stroganoff

I love making this recipe as 2nd meal if we have pot roast some night. It’s really simple and really tasty!


  • 1-2lbs. Beef Stew Meat
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 pkg. Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 cup of Sour Cream
  • Noodles of choice (I like egg noodles)


  1. Combine beef, cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix in a crock pot and cook 4-6 hours
  2. Right before serving add sour cream
  3. Serve over noodles

    French Dip:

    • Cook meat (often a roast) with Lipton Onion Soup Mix and 1 can of water.
    • Serve as French Dip sandwiches the first night and use leftover meat and au jus to make stroganoff for next meal
    • For stroganoff just add soup to the meat and juice (may need to add a little flour to thicken)
    • Then add sour cream
    • Serve over noodles


    • Cook meat with Lipton Onion Soup Mix and 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup (can also add other spices if desired)
    • Serve as roast for first meal and use leftover meat and au jus for stroganoff
    • Add sour cream for stroganoff
    • Serve over noodles.

    lots of different choices out of 1 crockpot

    Fettuccine Alfredo #1


    One of the many recipes I have been exposed to for homemade Alfredo sauce. They all have the basics with some slight variation to them. So you can decide which is your favorite!


    • 1 Package of Fettuccine
    • 1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
    • 1/2 Cup of Butter
    • 2/3 Cup of Light Cream or Sour Cream (I’m pretty sure I used the sour cream cause that’s what we had on hand)


    1. Cook pasta according to package direction.
    2. Melt butter in microwave.
    3. With a whisk, add Parmesan cheese and light cream. Whisk together very well.
    4. Pour sauce over hot pasta and toss to coat well.
    5. Serve with addition Parmesan cheese. (Variation: Add a tablespoon or two of pesto before pouring over pasta.)

    If I’m feeling like my little family is slacking on some good vitamins {which they always are I’m sure}, I like to add chicken, broccoli or mushrooms to the mix.
