Thinking about change

Ok folks, I love this blog, I love why it was started and all the great things I’ve been able to share. But I do feel a little limited in that it is only baking and cooking… so, I’ve been thinking about adding some things to make the content a little broader. I’d like to…

Something Special

As promised I made a “special” meal in honor of my blogaversary. So tonight’s dinner consists of…Taco Salad! Seems a little anti-climatic but I asked my daughter what my very best dish is and she didn’t even hesitate. So, this must be darn good lol.  I have an unusual secret ingredient in my taco salad…

Happy Anniversary! 

My blog started four years ago today!!  I’m pretty proud of things I’ve done here. It started out as a way for me to collect the recipes I had been creating and revamping for a cookbook. The cookbook turned into a collaborative effort for charity which I love! And now I cook and post for…

Kind of fancy for a Wednesday

First of all, no I will not be posting daily through your 2017! It just seems lately that I’m in the mood.  So what’s for dinner? Glad you asked! Tonight is a family favorite, a simple seafood pasta. It looks beautiful and is super tasty 😋. Perfect for a night with kids or as a…

Taco Tuesday! … Well sort of…

I love mexican-american food! I phrase it that way because what I make is nowhere near authentic Mexican cuisine which is amazing, and deserves kudos in it’s own right! I was craving something a little spicy tonite and it’s Tuesday so what else Tacos! But….I got distracted whilst shopping and ended up putting together a…

Monday #1

Already struggling this year to think of things to make for dinner, and I hate to supply you with a repeat performance but….breakfast for dinner is so good!  And since it’s been two days and I’m still not a morning person what could be better! I used Betty Crocker’s pancake recipe and doubled it for…

Quick and Easy Chicken Pot Pie

I was looking for an easy peasy new year’s dinner solution and decided on Chicken pot pie. It may not sound like an easy recipe but I used a few short cuts and the results are outstanding! Here’s what you need, Pre-made pie crusts, a rotisserie chicken, two cans of mixed veggies, one can of…

Happy New Year!!

Another New Year with a fresh start and some amazing possibilities!  I love the new year holiday, it fills me with the hope of dreaming bigger dreams, and being a better person than the year before. So let’s get right to it! Resolutions!! I have to be honest in that I have never really had…

So much to say! 

It’s been a very busy fall and winter season full of a lot of great friends and amazing food. So where do I start!  Let’s start with football season and the food of it all. I love cozying up in the family room to watch my husband’s intensity build during the game. He’s a passionate…

Meal #4, going it alone…

I’m dying to work on our Betty’s BFF’s cookbook challenge but my darling BFF is still not quite up to it. So tonight I’m going solo for meal #4.  On the menu, garlic marinade for venison steaks, caramelized onions, and apple crisp for dessert.  I started of course with the marinade. This was the first…

Uneventful update

So…how’ve you all been… I’m just here living the dream. Waiting for my BFF to find relief of her back pain so we can get back in the kitchen together, and enjoying my Fall weather which finally returned.  The cooler weather is always a welcome change in the fall. It brings back happy memories. And…

Willing the Cool Autumn Weather to Come Back…

It’s been an absolutely gorgeous early fall Sunday. I’ve had a really laid back day, a quick breakfast, some errands, and grocery shopping. By the time I got to the store our sunny day had really warmed things up, and I was shedding my hoody, and thinking about the coming week.  Weather is a fickle…
