Taco Salad (Build Your Own)


Man, I love a good Taco Salad. Fortunately for me, my family loves a good Taco Salad with a passion equal to my own (excepting two little twin boys who groan a bit when Taco Salad is on the menu, dang em. Hoping their taste buds improve soon.) We end up having Taco Salad quite […]


Homemade White Bread (Renewed)


There is something magical about homemade bread, don’t you think? I love the way it rises up. The smell of it baking is utterly fabulous. The taste of a warm slice fresh from the oven with a bit of butter and honey spread on top…well it’s one of my very favorite things to eat, I […]


The Weekend Report: Several Amazing Women


This is my great-grandmother, Pearl Halterman. She raised 11 children (including my Grandma Barb) in a tiny farm-house and fed them all using the wood burning stove you see in the back of the picture. Can you even imagine what that might have been like! She baked 12 loaves of bread every other day in […]


How to make Homemade Strawberry Jam


When spring time hits and strawberries are in abundance my kids start saying things like… “Hey, Mom. When are you going to make the strawberry jam?” and… “Yo, Mama. We have been out of strawberry jam for like 10 million years. Are you going to make some more or what?” and… “Did you make the […]


Crunchy Poppy Seed Coleslaw


A few weeks ago I attended the baptism of my cute nephew, Tom. He was born the same year as MyLittleTwinBoys… and a few other great looking little dudes. Back in 2006, 4 of my sister in laws and I all delivered baby boys within about 7 months of each other. Isn’t that fun! Cute […]

Chicken Quinoa and Brown Rice Soup


With the summer quickly approaching (yipee!) I wanted to hurry and post one last soup recipe before the weather heats up and we start talking about grilling and homemade ice cream and other sunny pleasures. This Chicken Red Quinoa and Brown Rice soup is a twist on the classic Chicken and Rice Soup. I was […]


Chocolate Cream Cake


When I was in college, I worked part-time at The Lion House, a party/reception center. They have the most fabulous bakery that pumps out heavenly rolls, cakes and pies. It’s good stuff, I have to tell ya. This Chocolate Cream Cake was one of my all time favorites. I have been wanting to try my […]


The Weekend Report: Perfect Mother of the Year, do you know her?


Last Sunday night my family and I were gathered together enjoying the last few hours of the weekend. I started to get a pit in my stomach thinking of the coming week and the large abundance of activities looming on the calendar. My nerves started to frazzle at the edges. So much to do and […]


Orange Sweet Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


Way, way back in the early months of my blogging journey (almost 5 years ago, who can believe it!), I posted a recipe for Orange Rolls. It’s somewhat buried within a post for Cinnamon Rolls and is kind of hard to understand and follow. Since that time I have learned a new technique for making […]
