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 […]

Dutch Oven Cheesy Potatoes

Many of the emails I receive during the summer months read something like this… “What kind of great camping and dutch oven recipes do you have?” To which I am forced to reply with a truthful… “None. Thank you for asking.” Not that I don’t love a fine meal made in the dutch oven, the […]

Homemade Magic Shell

Wow, it’s hot outside. I mean, it’s not like 120 degrees here in my home state but when the temperature dances around with triple digits a girl can melt right down to a pile of nothing. Which is my diet plan for the summer, though it hasn’t actually resulted in any weight loss as of […]

Classic Fettuccine Alfredo

Oh, my. Goodness. Do you know anyone that doesn’t enjoy a beautiful plate of Fettuccine Alfredo? Me either. Must be something about the butter, cream and Parmesan cheese. They are a beautiful combination, are they not! Beautiful, and down right sinful and slightly wicked.  Please plan 1 hour of immediate cardio activity after consumption. Just […]
