Cream Cheese Cookies

Well, well. I know, I know… is still  January, but I couldn’t help but post these fun cookies! I found them at the wonderful site My Kitchen Cafe. There are fabulous recipes galore over there! I tried these cookies this past December and my kids loved them. They were actually even better the second day […]

Watermelon Bouquet

    A fellow blogger left me a comment the other day asking me to please post about the watermelon bouquet pictured  at the top of my blog. I know that it is WINTER….and where I live here in chilly Utah you would be hard pressed to find a watermelon that tasted good and cost less […]

Rumbi’s Mango Chicken Salad

My kids were thrilled!  You simply mix up the batter, spread it evenly on a sprayed cookie sheet and bake for about 25 […]

Carrot Cake

This is the carrot cake recipe to end all carrot cake recipes. It’s from the Lion House cookbook, and I have been making it for years. Several of my family members request it each year for their birthday. I made this one a couple of weeks ago when my Mom turned 59. Don’t be overwhelmed […]

Sweet Cafe Rio Pork

This yummy sweet pork shows it’s lovely face at our dinner table quite frequently. This is one of those great recipes that is put in the crock pot in the morning, and ready to eat in the afternoon. You do need to be available to take the meat out after 4 hours of cooking, shred […]
