About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Grandpa's Lasagna Recipe

I am blessed to still have one of my grandparents alive.  Grandpa Goodman is one of the sweetest men you will ever meet.  He has a heart of gold and a quiet sweet spirit about him.  Bradley got to meet his great grandpa back in June for the first time.  It was so special to see the instant bond between them.  My favorite dish that Grandpa always made us each summer was lasagna.  No one could make lasagna like Grandpa did!  I'm so happy he shared his recipe with me and I can't believe I'm sharing it with the world today.  But delicious food shouldn't be left as secrets.  Everyone deserves a bite of this delicious lasagna!

Ingredients for Sauce:
1 pound of ground beef
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 pound can of tomatoes (I normally used diced)
1 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
2 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon basil
Ingredients for Cheese Mixture:
2 12 ounce containers of cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon oregano

Cook beef, onion, and garlic until meat is browned.  Drain.  Add tomatoes, sauce, parsley, sugar, salt, and basil.  Heat until boiling.  Simmer uncovered one hour.

In a separate bowl, mix cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and oregano.

Cook one package of lasagna noodles.

In a 13x9x2 pan, layer noodles, sauce, and cheese mixture.  Repeat.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until bubbly.
