This was originally published last Mardi Gras, but I’m in a bit of a Cajun mood today–plus I am trying to kick a head cold and there’s no better cure than spicy food! I’m making an extra-hot batch of gumbo and hoping it cures what ails me! Stay tuned for another Nawlins favorite next weeks: […]
Today I’m sharing a recipe from my friend and fellow Colorado blogger, Catherine of Evolving Motherhood. I met Catherine this past fall in a cab on the way to a blog conference, and it turned out we were on the same flight and didn’t even realize it! Catherine shares my passion for clean, healthy eating […]
Isn’t soup season just the best? There is nothing easier than throwing a few ingredients into a big pot, adding some broth, and letting it simmer. Not to mention thrifty, since you can stretch small amounts of meat into many servings. Just add some fresh baked bread, rolls, cornbread or muffins and you’ve got a […]

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!
