Whole Wheat Muffins

Put away your Kitchen Aid Mixer,  and say good bye to the Bosch, baby. All you need for this fabulous dinner addition is a bowl, a wooden spoon,  some BASIC baking ingredients, and about 25 minutes. I received this recipe from my sweet friend Julie earlier today. They sounded good (and fast) so I made […]

Stuffing Chicken

 This is a recipe I make at least once a month. The kids really enjoy it….and my husband adores it. So, it gets put on the menu a lot. It’s great to make this time of year, as Stove Top Stuffing is usually on sale. I like to purchase a whole slew of boxes and keep […]

Peanut Butter Pie

 If you are a lover of peanut butter and chocolate….then this delectable pie is for you. We are indeed approaching the great pie making season of the year. This one is a piece of cake to make. Well, a piece of pie actually. Thanks to my sweet friend Trisha for having a birthday and being […]

Lion House Honey Butter

This is the real stuff guys. Nothing low-cat, low-fat about this delectable delight. Put a dollop on the Holiday Crescent Rolls I posted yesterday, and you’ll think you have died and gone to HEAVEN, and I’m not even kidding. You’ll want to be sure and start with softened butter, and give yourself about 3-5 hours […]

Holiday Crescent Rolls

When I was going to the University of Utah I worked at The Lion House. For you out of state-rs, its a wedding reception/banquet dinner kind of joint. They have the most FABULOUS bakery. Fabulous for the pallet, not so fabulous for the hips…if you get my drift. The dinner rolls there are pretty much […]

Southwest Black Bean Chicken in the Crock Pot

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 […]
