Chocolate Dipped Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling

  Oh my dear reader friends. Does that not just put a SMILE on your FACE! I had such a fun time making these, I didn’t even mind the mess it made of my kitchen. I didn’t even grumble when I looked up and saw my entire counter top riddled with paint, brushes, cups of […]

Chicken Chow Mein

I found this recipe about 10 years ago in a healthy eating cookbook and have been making it ever since. It is one of our favorites. Yes, my kids will eat it. Some of them dish themselves the veggies they like, my girls eat the onions! Who would have thought! Some of my kids like to pick […]

Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

Doesn’t February just feel great!  It’s kind of like a breath of fresh air. Here in Utah we start to think…maybe, just maybe the snow is going to be done soon, the blue skies are going to return and we may even be able to unleash our young children out into nature to play a […]

Mushroom and Spinach Crescent Rolls

Some of you may remember that back in December I was sent a great package from Pillsbury and MyBlogSpark. I was asked to create a new appetizer with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. My readers got to vote on which kind of appetizer they would like to see me try. Most readers voted for bacon and cheese. […]

Pork Roast with Vegetables and Gravy

I have to apologize to all you fabulous dieters out there. I have to admit….I shouldn’t have made these beauties this week. But, I just couldn’t help myself.
