Sour Cream Noodle Bake


On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days.  Here is recipe 30: Sour Cream Noodle Bake!

The Pioneer Woman is the queen of comfort food.  This recipe is from her website (I did change it a tiny bit to use ground beef instead of chuck).  She makes cooking comfort food glamorous.  Have you visited her site or read her books?

I like anything that I can assemble at nap time and then bake right before dinner.  I could have even made this the night before.  This was really yummy and filling.  It was perfect when served with a salad and some crusty bread.

On an unrelated note, I am reading some books and planning to take a food photography class.  I can’t wait to have some great pictures to show you all.  For now, we get to look at some less than stellar pictures….but you get some really yummy recipes.  I’ll keep you all posted on how my learning goes.

  1. My husband will be at home for a week by himself and I'm trying to plan some freezer meals for him. I'm looking for something he can take out of the freezer and pop in the oven when he gets home. Do you think I can freeze this and he can pop it in the oven and it turn out okay?

    1. Yes Lori, I do think that this will freeze well. Let me know how that turns out

  2. Thank you Dawnmarie. That was an oversight on my part as the recipe was given to me and I did not realize that it was from The Pioneer Woman. I am for sure going to make sure that I am being better about siting my sources and giving credit. I dont claim any of these recipes as mine. I just make them, share them, and suggest them. I will be better about adding those links. 🙂 Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    1. Dawnmarie & Joyful Momma -- just wanted to say you both handled that beautifully. = ) Nice to see.

  3. First, I do enjoy your blog. Secondly, I'm not trying to be mean. I would have appreciated seeing you credit this recipe back to the pioneer woman. I use the same recipe regularly. I'm sure you don't mean to take credit for someone else's recipe, but to not even link to the original or give credit for inspiration makes me uncomfortable.
