Moogie Mush, cracked wheat cereal

So you may be thinking….what in the world is a Moogie, and what does it have to do with mush? Well, all I can tell you is that this cracked wheat cereal is a recipe my father in law made for his kids a lot when they were growing up. He lived for 2 years […]

Southwest Black Bean Chicken in the Crock Pot

  Ok….allrighty then. Who has piles and piles of chocolate candy bars lurking around every corner……just waiting, hoping to have the chance to add themselves to your hips. I know I do and after all the sampling I did yesterday (everyone should get to sample some great treats on Halloween, who are we kidding here) […]

Sugar Cookies

Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without these wonderful sugar cookies. My mom made them a lot when I was growing up, the recipe is wonderful! They make a super soft, sweet cookie. They do take a little time, and the dough is easiest to work with if it has been refrigerated for about an hour. The […]

White Chicken Chili

Well guys and gals, it’s a stormy day along the Wasatch Front. I’d say a rather chilly day. A great day to make a batch of chili! This original recipe came from my great friend Tricia. I have changed it somewhat, using dried great northern beans instead of canned, and 1% milk instead of whipping […]

Pumpkin Patch Cookies

I am seriously in love with pumpkin. There are so many fun ways to cook with it! These cookies are super easy……you can leave off the fancy dollop of cream cheese frosting and the cute chocolate pumpkin and they are still taste delicious.  Pumpkin Patch Cookies Yield: 60 cookies Time: 90 minutes  Cookie Recipe from […]

School Morning Pancakes

This is my standard pancake recipe. It really doesn’t take long at all, and can be made on a school morning. Sometimes I add mini chocolate chips, or frozen blueberries. The recipe makes about 20, so I keep leftovers in the fridge for the next day. My little boys even like them plain as a […]

Chocolate Velvet Desert

So let me start by saying….no one should eat 2 pieces of this desert in the same month. It is a bite of pure heaven, every bite should be savored! The texture is crispy on the bottom and satiny smooth on the top. It would be great to make for any special occasion or holiday. […]

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

The smell of fresh bread baking has to be one of lifes most heavenly scents. Just down right fabulous. This Cinnamon Raisin Bread is a recipe I have tweaked and changed over the years. It is wonderful warm out of the oven with a bit of butter and honey spread on the top. It is […]

Chicken and Rice Bake

 This has been a standard at our house for years. The original recipe came from my Mom but I have tweaked it a bit to make it a bit more healthy. (The original called for an entire stick of melted butter…I like to save my sticks of butter for cookies.) One of the best things […]

Penne with Tomatoes and Spinach

Love this recipe. It’s very fresh tasting, and comes together super quickly. There is no protein in it however, so sometimes I throw in some cooked shrimp in at the end. It’s also great with grilled chicken or salmon on the side.   PrintPenne with Tomatoes and Spinach Total Time: 20 minutes Yield: 6 servings […]
