This zesty recipe dresses up the “educated” vegetable with a cheesy sauce, making it one of our favorite tasty (and healthy) makeovers of favorite family recipes.
Super Simple Scalloped Potatoes
Hearty meals at Grandma's house often featured these stick-to-the-ribs potatoes, which are baked in a creamy sauce and topped with cheese.
Favorite Chicken Potpie
When it came to making turkey or chicken pot pies, Grandma’s rule was anything goes. Some grandmas topped their pies with dumplings. Others used pastry, as in this recipe. If you sub chicken for another poultry, this pot pie is a great way to use up any leftovers from a holiday turkey.
Easy Chicken Corn Chowder
Use canned cream-style corn to make this down-home chowder in a jiffy. It makes a warming appetizer. See what other type of soup made our list of foods you buy that you should make from scratch instead.
Roasted Chicken with Rosemary

Easy Chicken Tamale Pie
Try this easier take on the traditional corn-husk wrapped tamale. A slow cooker means you can fix it and forget it.
