Retro Rules

I just love classic comfort food. You know, the kind Mom used to make. The kind you can't get at restaurants and don't have the time to make at home. The kind you crave on a cold winter night.

That's why I'm absolutely over the moon to offer you some new retro-classic entrees.

Old-Fashioned Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes
Nothing fancy here, just a darn good meatloaf served with a large side of buttery, creamy mashed potatoes. Our 2-lb. meatloaf serves 6-8 and is guaranteed to transport you back in time to mom's kitchen. Our potatoes are the real deal, made with russet potatoes -- never from a box.

Rosemary Beef Roast Crock Pot Kit
Imagine coming home and being greeted by the delightful aroma of beef roast. This crock pot kit is perfect after a long workday or as the star of Sunday dinner. Our 4-5 lb. roast feeds 6-8 and comes with a generous portion of red potatoes, carrots and onion.

Taco Casser-ole!
Put a retro spin on Taco Night with Taco Casser-ole! This mild, Mexi-seasoned casserole is full of beefy, beany goodness and topped with sharp cheddar cheese, fresh Roma tomatoes and green onions. Add lots of crunch tortilla chips, plus more on the side, for an easy, crowd-pleasing meal.

Available for a limited time. Order on by midnight Sunday for delivery the following Wednesday.

Surviving twins

I recently delivered Cream City Casseroles meals to two families with twins.

One was a gift delivery to welcome two precious little babies into the world. As the new dad gratefully accepted the big bag of oven-ready meals, he was visibly moved by his friends' outpouring of love and support.  
We talked for a few minutes about adjusting to life with newborns, and how life with twins is both an incredible blessing and a huge challenge.
"It gets easier," I assured him. "I know. My twins are now teenagers." 
Relief washed over his face.
"This is hard," he admitted. "Really, hard."
Looking back, I barely remember those first few weeks after my girls were born -- they're just a blur. But I do remember being blissfully happy and scared out of my mind, simultaneously.  

A few weeks ago, I got an email from a mom with toddler twins. She travels a lot for work and inquired about ordering meals to stock the fridge for when she's out of town. A…

Knock, knock ... Dinner's delivered!

When I first launched Cream City Casseroles, I only delivered to customers at their daycare centers and workplaces. My main worry was what to do if a customer wasn't home.

We're delivering food here, people!

But then, a customer had a brilliant suggestion:

"What if I left a cooler on my doorstep? You could put my food in there."

Boom. Genius.

You could've heard my forehead slap across town. Why didn't I think of that?

Well, let me tell you, home delivery has TOTALLY taken off. It's the most popular delivery method BY FAR. And it's so simple.

Here's how home delivery works:

1) You leave out a large cooler with ice pack.
2) I put your order in the cooler.
3) I email you that your dinner was delivered.
4) You come home and heat your dinner in the oven.
5) You eat dinner and FREAKING LOVE IT.
6) You immediately order dinner for next week.
7) You reward yourself with a bubble bath ... using the fancy soap.

Just 7 teeny-tiny steps. How easy is that?

Dish Delish: Sweet Summer Bratwurst Casserole

I'm a recipe-aholic. I love perusing cookbooks and foodie websites, looking for new and yummy dishes. Wanting to offer some lighter summer options for the upcoming summer months, I've been looking for casserole recipes that can be prepared in the oven, crock pot or grill. 
Tall order, I know, but it can be done. Especially when brats and sauerkraut are involved.

I came across a recipe that is really good, but didn't make the cut for my summer menu. I liked it a lot, but it was too sweet for my chief taste-tester's palate. (My husband.) Still, I thought it was nice for a change and worth sharing.
