Let It Go, by Chris Williams (Giveaway)

I saw this picture yesterday on Facebook and thought it beautifully simple and profound. What Mr. Rogers has to say is plain truth. Amid tragedy, and terrible circumstances there are always good, kind people there to pick up the pieces…lending a helping hand and providing a stable shoulder to cry on. It is amazing to watch, isn’t […]

Grilled Chicken Taco Marinade

A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with my dear friend Katherine. (She has given me many recipes in the past, that I’ve shared with you all. Like this fabulous Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken and this tasty Cinnamon Bear Popcorn. Both a delight! Kind of like Katherine, who is darn delight, herself!)  Anyhow, Katherine and […]

Pretty Baby Shower Ideas

Several weeks ago my Sisters and Mom (in law) and I put on a baby shower for our dear cousin. I love to throw a party with these ladies. Actually, if the truth were to be known…I love to do pretty much anything with these gals. I have been blessed beyond measure, with sisters and […]

Soft, Frosted Lemon Sugar Cookies

I love lemons. I love limes. I love oranges. I suppose you could say, I am a girl with a need for a little bit of citrus in her life. Especially when Spring shines her pretty (and sometimes RAINY) face around town, I get to craving everything lemon. These Lemon Cream Cheese Tarts, and these […]

Asparagus, Tomato and Artichoke Pasta Salad

Oh, I love a good Italian style pasta salad. Fresh tomatoes, asparagus, olives, red onion, marinated artichoke hearts and parmesan cheese…all tossed together with pasta and a flavorful dressing. You could even add some shredded chicken and turn this lovely salad into a meal! Then please invite me over, won’t you? I could eat this […]

Coconut Syrup

I’ve been on somewhat of a Homemade Syrup kick lately. Anyone remember the Cinnamon Syrup I posted a few months ago? The stuff is like sweet dream pie, I tell you. I feel like kissing it when I make it, truly. Excepting that kissing syrup would be pretty weird and would end up giving my children […]

Easy Beef Stroganoff (Crock Pot)

Several weeks ago I noticed a recipe my friend Tina (from Mommys Kitchen) posted some time ago on her blog. She called the recipe “No Peek Beef Tips” and said the beef was cooked for three hours in the oven in a simple, savory sauce. I thought that sounded fabulous, and so I gave her recipe a go. However, I cooked […]

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! The weather in my neck of the woods has been beautiful and we have been fortunate to spend the past couple […]

Carrot Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Do you love a good slice of Carrot Cake?  Boy, I sure do. I love a good Carrot Cake, and have been making it for many years. I usually make it in two round 9 inch cake pans, and then stack and frost them as beautifully as my time will allow. You can see that recipe here. […]

Stuffed Pork Loin

I have recipe a little bit out of the ordinary and extra special for you all today. Because Easter is approaching, and because I don’t have a lot of “fancy dinner” recipes in my archives. Which is due to very simple fact that I am the Mom to many children who need more from me than a “fancy […]
