It’s hard to believe with the lovely sunny days we’ve had lately, but pretty soon it will be what my husband and I call “Soup Weather”…that wet, foggy, cold, dark-by-5pm winter weather that just chills you to the bone. And there is nothing quite as warming to the body and soul, as a nice big […]
We’re normally year-round grillers, but with the high winds and bitter cold lately, we’ve held off for a few months. So this sunny, mild weather made me want to clear the cobwebs out of the grill and fire it up! One of my favorite things to grill is chicken drumsticks. They’re cheap, fairly quick to […]
Next Tuesday just happens to be Fat Tuesday aka Mardi Gras! So for this week, we’re cooking it up Cajun style! In doing my background research for this recipe, it occurred to me that there must be as many gumbo recipes as there are residents of Louisiana…and no one recipe is more “authentic” than another. […]
“Milanese” refers to a style of cooking meat cutlets by pounding them thin, dredging them in a crunchy coating, and frying. It is so much faster than fried chicken, and because the cutlets are very thin they cook quickly, which means less time to absorb oil. You can use this technique with any boneless meats […]
Normally our recipes are on Tuesdays now but I was digging though some files in my office and found one from my pops recipe book. Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. I’m going to make this in my slow cooker for tonight! I’ll post pictures soon.
This was soooooo good! It’s rare I find a recipe that everyone likes. Both the older boys, the hubby and I really loved this. I piled all the mushrooms on DH’s plate as the rest of us are anti-fungi, but it was delish! I served with a side of steamed peas. I also used low […]
I’m starting my health kick and wanted to share some great healthy recipes I’m finding, tweaking and creating! This one is from the Mayo Clinic and I cannot wait to make it for dinner! (Nutrition Information included below recipe)
This recipe scared me a bit with the use of salad dressing, but it is sooooo good and super easy!
Another great recipe from a member of our forums! This one comes to us from Mandi! She says she makes this all the time and it’s a hit with the family! She said you can even make 2 meals out of one!
This recipe was submitted by our own “Mommy the Maid”! Lissa has amazing recipes on her website. She also has great tips and shares her craftiness! I have seen many versions of No Peek Chicken. I have seen them in old cookbooks, new cookbooks, my grandmother’s recipe box, and my mother-in-law’s recipe box. Everyone has […]
It’s a windy and cold day here so I think I’ll try this recipe posted in our forums by one of our long time members Mommy The Maid. Such a simple recipe and one I bet my family is going to LOVE!
Tired of pasta and don’t feel like making a risotto? This is my go-to for pasta night here. My kids LOVE Gnocchi! Gnocchi (pronounced nee-okkee) are an excellent alternative: They’re fantastic with all sorts of sauces, from a simple summer tomato sauce to the richest winter meat sauce. Florentines call them topini (field mice), because […]
