Coconut Ice Cream (Almond Joy Sunday)

Do feel like Coconut is the new Chocolate? The stuff is everywhere! People are putting Coconut Flavored Syrup in Diet Coke (try it with a little lime, please…it is to die for, truly). Folks are making Coconut Syrup and pouring it all over pancakes and waffles. I’ve seen a fabulous looking Crispy Coconut Chicken I’m […]

Homemade Apricot Jam

A few weeks ago while  visiting at my Mom’s house, I noticed a lovely bowl of apricots on her kitchen counter. “Wherever did you get those!” is what I asked her. I had been on the hunt for apricots to make jam with for several weeks previously. And when I say hunt, I mean it […]

August Menu Plan 2013

Can you believe the calendar has gone right ahead and melted itself into August. How does time fly by so quickly! Do you know? I sure don’t. I’m glad there are a few more weeks of summer left to enjoy. Here in sunny Herriman, where I live, we have year round school. Which means the elementary […]

Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Raspberry Jam

Do you love a good Grilled Cheese Sandwich? I bet you do. Pretty sure I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t like grilled cheese.  There’s just something comforting about it, yes? Today I have a twist on the classic version I hope you will love. I surely love it. Some of my kids love it. At least the […]

20 Summer Desserts That Don’t Require an Oven

Man, it’s hot outside. The thoughts of baking a cake or a nice batch of cookies in the middle of the day is just plain stifling, isn’t it?  I think if I tried it I just might melt into a slushy puddle right in the middle of my kitchen. And so the oven and I […]

How to Cook Shredded Chicken (Crock Pot)

It is no secret, we eat a lot of chicken around here. In fact Chicken is the second largest category in my recipe file. You knew Dessert was first, didn’t you? Sigh…dessert is just so wonderful and fun, a person like me is compelled to dwell on it more than I should, I suppose. But […]

Homemade Raspberry Syrup

One of the things I love most about summer is the glorious fresh fruit that’s available. Juicy peaches, sweet blueberries, cold slices of watermelon at a backyard barbecue. I love it! I found some beautiful raspberries on sale last week, they were just $12.99 for a case of 6 (12 ounce) packages! Can you believe […]

Guiltless Zucchini Marinara Subs

So, when a girl like me writes the word “GUILTLESS” in the title of a recipe you should be warned that it doesn’t mean the recipe is totally carb free, gluten free, or calorie free. Pretty sure the only thing that meets those requirement is a nice cool glass of water which I bet you […]

Wonderful Grilled Chicken Fajitas

I love a good chicken fajita. Smokey grilled chicken, sauteed sweet bell peppers and onions all nestled into a soft flour tortilla. Top it all with a bit of sour cream, cheese and guacamole and life is a beautiful thing, ladies and gentlemen. If you have fresh garden tomatoes to toss in…well then, your life […]

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars a standard recipe that I’m sure most of you have made in your lifetime at one point or another. Am I right? They have graced many a pot luck dinner, baby shower, girls night party and book club chit chat.  I have seen them show their pretty face at every […]
